Question: In this part of the universe alone, there are already billions of sentient beings. Do Buddhas and Bodhisattvas have the ability to manifest multiples forms simultaneously to guide them with the Dharma, including to, for example, Amituofo’s (Amitabha Buddha) Pure Land, where progress to enlightenment is guaranteed?
Answer: Yes, they can and they do! Being enlightened and liberated, all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas are constantly doing their best with their boundless compassion and tireless energy for all beings everywhere. Their assistance might not seem very obvious, but this is only because of our currently heavy spiritual defilements and negative karma, that make us fail to realise and appreciate who or what are their manifestations, thus missing their great efforts.
As such, the obviousness of their countless skilful means and immeasurable blessings to help and awaken us are only more obvious when we become more sincere, diligent and proficient Dharma practitioners. With more alignment to our Buddha-nature, there will be purification of karmic obstacles, with easier and clearer experience of their compassion. This is especially so for Nianfo practice (of mindfulness of the name of Amitabha Buddha – ‘Amituofo’), with many examples at http://purelanders.com/?s=testimo
