In this world of continuing conflict, the compassionate vows of Amida Buddha guide us to a live with kindness and understanding for others. The 19th Vow affirms that those who practice goodness will be welcomed into the world of peace and bliss:
If, when I attain Buddhahood, the sentient beings of the ten quarters, while awakening the mind aspiring for enlightenment and performing meritorious acts, should desire to be born in my land with sincere aspiration, and yet should I not appear before them at the moment of death surrounded by a host of sages, may I not attain the perfect enlightenment.
