Sariputra, why do you think it is called The Sutra That Is Guarded and Cared For By All Buddhas? Sariputra, if there are virtuous men and women hear about this Sutra and abide by it as well as those who hear about all Buddhas’ names, those virtuous men and women are all guarded and cared for by all Buddhas and shall never regress from the Anuttara-samyak-sambodhi. Therefore, Sariputra, you all shall believe and accept my sayings as well as all Buddhas’ preaches.

 

Sariputra, if persons have made vows in the past, take vows at the present, or will pledge in the future, wishing to be born in the Amitabha’s World, all such persons shall never regress from the Anuttara-samyak-sambodhi, and should have been reborn in the past, shall be reborn at the present, or will be reborn in the future in Amitabha’s World. Thus, Sariputra, all virtuous men or women, if they believe, should make vows to give birth[48] in that World.
