During the Declining Age of the Dharma, there is no way to attain Buddhahood except by reciting "Amitabha".
Just think it through, you will realize how hard it is to sever yourself from desires.
Reciting "Amitabha" is the only way that enables people to attain Buddhahood by going to Amitabha's Pure Land after death so long they succeed in suppressing their desires.
Without that way, we will not be able to make it.
You have got to weigh the pros and cons carefully, If you cannot sever yourselves from all desires, then you should take the easier way by reciting "Amitabha" wholeheartedly.
This will definitely set you on the course to success.
So, if you can sever yourselves from all your desires, fine.
But if you cannot do that, then following any other way will be a dangerous course, full of pitfalls for you to fall into, and you will not succeed attaining Buddhahood.
We must understand well that only this way can save the sentient beings of the Age of Declining Dharma.
Devoted to taking this approach by practising and introducing to others the recitation of "Amitabha", you will then succeed one day.
