【While understanding the meaning of the words of these verses in this way, slowly recite them as indicated without distraction.  Once you do this, you will have an immeasurable mass of merit. 】
If we understand this as described above, after understanding it, i.e we thoroughly understand the "words" and the "meaning". What does "meaning" signify? That is, there, what the content is saying. If you truly comprehend the content and put it into practice with a strong, clear aspiration, this is when your mind stream will be absorbed by your practice. That is truly important. If the continuum of your body and mind concords with what you recite, and you understand the word description of what you are reciting, then at this time, if you produce concordance with it in your mind, there will be immeasurable merits, immeasurable merits, and incredible merits! So now if you say you wish to be born in the Pure Land, why would you not end up there, why would you not end up there! The principle behind this is right here.
