Wherever the Buddha's teachings have been received, either in cities or countrysides,
people would gain inconceivable benefits. The land and the people would be enveloped in
peace. The sun and moon will shine clear and bright. Wind and rain would appear
accordingly, and there will be no disasters. Nations would be prosperous and there would
be no use for soldiers or weapons. People would abide by morality and accord with laws.
They would be courteous and humble, and everyone would be content without injustices.
There would be no thefts or violence. The strong would not dominate the weak and everyone
would be settled at their proper place in society." The Sutra of Amitabha's Purity,
Equality, and Understanding
