Andrew Yang get recognition

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Entrepreneur Andrew Yang knows most people initially viewed his candidacy for U.S. president – and his campaign promise to guarantee every American a basic, government-funded income – as a gimmick.
"You all heard at some point there's an Asian man running for president who wants to give everyone $1,000 a month," the 44-year-old New York Democrat said to laughter and cheers inside a packed union hall this month in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Then he turned serious: "We're in an era of economic change, and we need to think differently."
That way of thinking has propelled Yang, the Ivy League-educated son of Taiwanese immigrants who would be the country's first Asian-American president, from what many considered to be an entertaining diversion to a mainstream contender for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.
Now Yang's campaign, which began in 2017 but has seen its fortunes rise sharply in recent months, is rushing to catch up with rivals.
He stands near 3% in the latest public opinion polls, putting him in sixth place in the 19-candidate field ahead of numerous sitting lawmakers. His $10 million fundraising haul in the third quarter was the sixth-most among Democrats and more than triple his total for the second quarter.
Most importantly, he continues to inspire a fervent following known as the Yang Gang, supporters who wear blue "MATH" hats - a tribute to Yang's devotion to data that has since become an acronym for "Make America Think Harder" - and revel in his "nerdy" campaign.
When Yang promised to become the first president to use PowerPoint in a State of the Union address, the Las Vegas crowd chanted, "PowerPoint! PowerPoint!"

Yang's central message – that automation is destroying U.S. jobs and that his "Freedom Dividend" is the best way to mitigate the damage – has particularly resonated with young, male Democrats, independents and some Republicans, according to Reuters/Ipsos polls.
In that sense, Yang appears to be drawing many of the same types of voters U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders did in his unexpectedly strong outsider run for the White House in 2016.
According to Reuters polling data, Sanders supporters are three times as likely to choose Yang as their second favorite than backers of either U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren or former Vice President Joe Biden, the other two leading contenders.
Las Vegas resident Kelsey McCormick, 30, said she "fell in love" with Yang after hearing about his universal basic income proposal.
"It's refreshing for a politician to say he'll give people what they need without telling them how to use it," she said.
BUILDING A 'YANG GANG' GROUND GAME

Buoyed by last quarter's cash infusion, Yang's team is aggressively hiring in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina, just in time for the crucial stretch ahead of the first nominating contests in February.
Yang's aides, while reluctant to share precise figures, said the campaign staff - currently in excess of 75 - had tripled since Sept. 1 and would triple again by Nov. 1.
The hiring spree is aimed at translating Yang's online strength – including Yang Gang volunteers across the country – into on-the-ground operations such as neighborhood canvassing and phone banks.
Several Democratic officials in New Hampshire and Iowa said Yang's ground operations still lag well behind those of his main rivals, including Warren, Biden, Sanders and others, who were able to build up teams earlier in the year.
Last week, Yang staffers held a two-day retreat in New York City, where they mapped out strategy and played appropriately nerdy bonding games, like presidential trivia.
The campaign, whose top aides early on were all political neophytes, has brought on more than a half-dozen seasoned Democratic operatives since the summer.

One of those new hires is national organizing director Zach Fang, who oversaw field operations in several states for Sanders' 2016 campaign and previously worked for Democratic U.S. Representative Tim Ryan's presidential campaign this year.
Like many of Yang's supporters, Fang said he joined because Yang's focus on automation made sense to him after he spent time working in Silicon Valley, where he saw firsthand the way technology was threatening traditional work.
"There was no one else saying what Andrew was saying," Fang said. "I didn't realize how many other 'me's' there were out there in the world."
During the Las Vegas town hall, Yang dismissed the various theories propagated by cable television pundits as reasons for Trump's victory in 2016: racism, Russia, Hillary Clinton.
"The real catalyst and the numbers – I'm a numbers guy – is that we automated away four million manufacturing jobs in Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa," he said. "And if that list of states sounds familiar, those are the states that Donald Trump needed to win, and did win."
Yang said Nevada, which relies heavily on its hospitality industry, will lose more jobs to automation than any other state, noting that MGM Resorts International has announced plans to replace bartenders with robots at its casinos.

"We're in the midst of the greatest economic transformation in the history of our country, what experts are calling the fourth industrial revolution," he said. "When is the last time you heard a politician say the words 'fourth industrial revolution'?"

十一岁小孩寄零食感恩香港警察

海外网10月10日电 香港的暴力活动持续数月,严重威胁了公共安全。香港警察每天执法时面对暴徒的攻击,承受的风险和压力愈来愈大,令香港市民既欣慰又心痛。不少香港市民主动用不同的方式慰问警察,一位远隔重洋的11岁加籍华裔男孩Brian(化名),更是利用自己的零用钱买了一大箱零食寄到香港,以示慰问和尊敬。
据香港文汇报10月10日消息,Brian看到网上有内地同胞送小吃给香港警察表示支持,自己也想用自己零用钱买礼物寄给香港警察。于是他买了一大箱食物,连同一封自己写的信,由加拿大寄快递到香港警察局。但因警方不方便收,快递被退回,之后男孩的妈妈辗转拜托在香港的亲戚,最终转送到警察局。
香港警察收到远从加拿大寄来的慰问品和一封感人的信,特别感谢这个加籍华裔男孩这份漂洋过海送来的一份纯真的爱心,为他的明理、爱国倍感鼓舞。
男孩在信中表示,“我想让香港警察知道,虽然我们不在香港居住,但我们都很感激他们保护我在香港亲人的安全。”
Brian的妈妈也感慨地说“可叹的是,一些不想做中国人的中国人,让更多中国人更爱做中国人。”
虽然最近一段时间,香港的暴力活动持续,但是一幕幕暖心的情景也多次上演。近日,一名香港市民目睹暴徒玷污国旗的行径,忍无可忍、挺身而出,虽遭暴徒追击围殴住院,但他仍呼吁市民与暴力割席,“要做勇敢的中国人!”7日下午,香港湖南青年会数十名成员自发集会,拉起写有“止暴制乱,刻不容缓!守家园,撑警察,反暴力!”的横幅,并高喊“支持(特区)政府立禁蒙面法”“支持警队,严正执法”等口号,最后众人合唱国歌。参与此次活动的成员均希望,香港能够恢复平静, 大家热爱祖国也热爱香港,坚决反对和抵制暴力。8日上午,香港警嫂来到香港葵青总区青衣警署,将自己及香港与内地网民共同购买的300余双防暴手套捐赠给警队。得知警署洗衣房因防护衣清洗问题经营受挫,内地热心网友纷纷自掏腰包捐赠物资助港警摆脱困境。

Andrew Yang at Peterborough

From Internet

PETERBOROUGH — On his potential path to the presidency, Democrat Andrew Yang leaned on humor to deliver his message at Post and Beam Brewing Thursday night.
“If you’re here tonight, you heard something like this at some point: There’s an Asian man running for president who wants to give everyone $1,000 a month,” he said during his speech, to laughter and whoops and hollers.
That was the tone of the evening, where at least 150 people showed up to see the entrepreneur and tech guru — though crowd estimates varied, since many attendees couldn’t get in the standing-room-only building.
Before starting his speech inside, Yang, 44, stopped for a minute to address a large group of overflow guests who were turned away at the door. He gave a few remarks standing in the brewery driveway and elicited several reverberating cheers.
He touched on all of the trademarks of his campaign: the employment threat of automation and his plan to implement a universal basic income of $1,000 per month to every U.S. citizen over 18. He’s dubbed it the “freedom dividend” and told attendees that many of America’s problems can be solved by putting more money into people’s pockets.
Yang had a clear following at the event. His call-and-response tactics honed over the past few months on the campaign trail were greeted with enthusiastic replies from attendees who knew all the lines in his stump speech.
At one point, Yang explained his plan to pay for a universal basic income with a value-added tax on tech companies, and he compared it — as he has in the past — to one state’s dividend program.
“And what state is that? (ALASKA!) And how do they pay for it? (OIL!) And what is the oil of the 21st century? (TECHNOLOGY!)”
Co-owner Erika Rosenfeld said Post and Beam Brewing has hosted a handful of presidential candidates so far in this political season, and Thursday’s crowd was the largest yet. She said Beto O’Rourke was a close second.
She clarified that the brewery doesn’t endorse any candidate who uses the space for a campaign event, but she said it’s been great to see the building being used that way.
“When we opened we said we wanted to be a community brewery, and part of that is helping people get to know their candidates,” Rosenfeld said.
Pubs were the political hub in America’s youth, she added, so events like these get back to the country’s roots. Plus, having a beer in an intimate setting is more inviting than sitting far away from a candidate on a stage.
“[This] makes it a much more conversational environment,” she said.
Joseph E. Johnson of Jaffrey attended with his 8-year-old daughter Sienna. While he’s researched Yang before and plans to check out his book from the library, Thursday was the first time Johnson had seen the candidate speak.
He already liked his ideas, he said, and “this just sealed the deal.”
Johnson said he’s supporting Yang because of the universal basic income and his plans to tackle climate change.
Yang told the Post and Beam crowd that he’s in the camp that believes climate change “is worse than you think.” If elected, he would sign the U.S. back onto the Paris Agreement, but he said America also needs to “lead a global effort.” There are ecosystems that need to be protected and rebuilt, he said, and other countries need help turning to renewable energy sources.
“I would pass a Constitutional amendment saying that safeguarding the environment has to be a core responsibility of the government, to make sure it stands the test of time,” Yang added.

Andrew Yang and Elizabeth Warren tax policies

From NewYork Time

In the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Elizabeth Warren, of Massachusetts, and Andrew Yang, a former tech executive and entrepreneur, have both proposed bold plans for redistributing economic resources.
Their plans are as different as can be. Only Mr. Yang’s is practical.
Let’s start with some undeniable preliminaries. First, we live in a time of great economic inequality. Economists debate the roles of technology, trade and public policy in explaining this fact. But there is no doubt that disparities in income and wealth are far greater todaythan they were half a century ago.
Second, reasonable people can disagree about the role the government should play in addressing this inequality. The issue involves not just economics but also political philosophy. Like most people, I have opinions on this thorny question, but I won’t try to resolve it all here.
Instead, let’s consider a simpler question: Assume that one way or another, the government is going to pursue new policies to increase the equality of economic outcomes. Given that assumption, what is the best approach?

Andrew Yang about culture and ceremony

From Yang2020
There are many draws on the President’s time. Promoting an agenda. Meeting with legislators. Directing the executive branch. Receiving briefings and keeping America safe from enemies both foreign and domestic. Pardoning turkeys.
One of those things doesn’t seem to fit on the list.
While certain ceremonial aspects of the Presidency are important, they pale in comparison to the work done each and every day. Additionally, the number of cultural or ceremonial events in this diverse and populous country is huge, and the President can’t possibly make an appearance at every important event.
By appointing a Head of Culture and Ceremony, the President can have a surrogate dedicated specifically to attending these important cultural touchstones. This will drastically increase the number of events that the office of the President can be represented at. It will also allow someone to be selected for the talents required to maximize the value of these events. The position can rotate periodically so that different people can take it on over a given term.

AndrewYang about Robo-calling

From Yang2020

Robo-calling has become somewhere between an irritation and harassment for millions of Americans.  Companies have determined that the cost of a robo-call is zero so if even a handful generate sales leads they pay off.  This has led to many of us tuning out our phones and regarding people reaching out to us with suspicion as we pick up to hear an automated voice pitching us something we don’t need.  
Our attention is valuable, and companies that occupy it should be improving our lives.  If they are simply wasting our time there needs to be some disincentive or deterrent.
As President, I will initiate a robo-calling text line.  If you receive a robo-call that you feel was a waste of your time, simply forward the number that called you to our robo-call investigations line (800-ROBOCAL).  The FCC will follow up with the company that called you.  If the FCC receives numerous complaints about a particular company, they will issue significant fines.  This will quickly discourage companies from adopting marketing tactics that customers find unpleasant or unwelcome.

YangMediaBlackout

#YangMediaBlackout suddenly became Twitter trend in USA. How come YangMediaBlackout so popular?
This was because @AndrewYang , one of the USA presidential candidate treated badly by USA main stream media.
During the first democratic debate, Andrew Yang talked only less than 3 minutes but other candidates all talked beyond three minutes, Some even talked nearly 20 minutes.
This was the unfair situation.
This biased media is MSNC.
During the second Democrats debate, Andrew Yang talked about 5 Minutes , and Andrew Yang talked to the points and people started to Google Andrew Yang. His Twitter followers increased greatly. Now Andrew Yang got 740k followers, not bad at all.
The YouTube video showing Andrew Yang in Democrat second debate taken down by CNN after few weeks. That gave the impression that CNN wants to destroy AndrewYang.
About releasing poll results ,Andrew Yang got the 5th place but the main stream simply ignore it or never showed his photo.
That is Why Andrew Yang Supporters feel badly and Twitter #YangMediaBlackout ,and suddenly it become the hot #.
Thanks, #YangGang ,the Yang supporters. Let's continue to Google AndrewYang.

GoogleAndrewYang

Andrew Yang is one of the USA Democratic presidential candidates. Trump said:" I am worrying some unknown persons coming for election.".
Actually Trump no need to worry for that. What he worries is that he will be defeated in next year election.
This is not easy especially for Asian to run for presidency.
Main stream medias just try every means to stop people to know Andrew Yang. Either they intentionally not included his name,photo even his poll results were higher than others.
So , Andrew Yang supporters #YangGang ,have to do something and they put efforts to advise people to #GoogleAndrewYang , that's why #GoogleAndrewYang ,becomes Twitter trend sometimes.
Election must be conducted in fair manner , #YangMediablackout ,also Twitter trend sometimes.
Now @AndrewYang , is moving slow but steadily.
Twitter followers are shooting up to 850000, incredible.
To counter bias, AndrewYang also come up with some surprising plan.

Andrew Yang universal basic income

Andrew Yang the USA 2020 President hopeful, his proposal about universal basic income of $1000 I'd the good idea.
The money comes from giant companies in which they earn tones of money, some even never pay taxes. I think human beings need to ready having the new mindset. We need to be ready caring to all fellow citizens especially the middle class and lowest class.
We need to ready make Americans think harder. Big companies benefited from automation and new technologies. Because of this, many people lost the jobs.
So, all these accumulated profits must not just benefit the few big investors. Some of the profits need to be shared amongst all citizens from beggars to the richs. Human beings need to put humanity inside everybody soils. Caring must be done through real action. To be fair, Universal basic income will be given to those citizens age between 18 to 64.
Can you imagine this kind of unselfishness will create appreciation.
For those wealthy, they can donate out if they want.
All people will be happier, healthier.
This is what I like to see.

Yang: Amazon needs to pay their fair share

Andrew Yang can win USA Presidential election 2020


Andrew Yang is now extremely popular on internet. On line users just type or google Andrew Yang, all information about Andrew yang will appear.
Andrew Yang got a sign that his top campaign issue is resonating when, he said, Joe Biden sidled up to him during a commercial break at the first presidential debate last month.
“No matter what happens, Andrew, you and I need to sit down and talk about the fourth industrial revolution because I’m terrified that we’re going to gut the middle class,” Yang recalled Biden telling him.
“And I said, ‘Hell yeah, Joe,” Yang said Tuesday during a campaign appearance in San Francisco. “This is a very, very positive thing that the message is getting through in ways big and small.”
     As Yang puts it, the U.S. is “in the third inning” of “the greatest economic and technological transformation in the history of the country,” and its leaders have done little to prepare for the changes ahead.
One of his solutions: Offer a universal basic income of $1,000 a month to every citizen, regardless of income. He says it’s not meant to replace existing safety-net programs. He would pay for it with a 10% value added tax, a form of taxation used in 160 countries where goods are taxed at every point along the supply chain.
“We’re going to create a trickle-up economy,” Yang said, adding that even Republicans would support a universal grant because “cash is very hard to demonize.”
While he’s been the idea’s only proponent in the Democratic field, Yang said that the personal relationships he has developed with his fellow candidates make him “very confident that we’re going to mainstream the issues that are important to this campaign in the days and weeks to come.”



Unlike some of his better-known rivals, Yang is in good position to make the debate stage September 12 in Houston when the qualification requirements double. To qualify, candidates must receive 2% support or more in four national or early state polls and donations from at least 130,000 donors. Yang is one of eight candidates who has met the donor threshold.
There’s a quirkiness to Yang’s campaign that has caught on with a sliver of voters. His acolytes — dubbed “The Yang Gang” — chant “PowerPoint” at his rallies. They wear ball caps that say “math” on the front — for “Make America Think Again” — a nod to the business entrepreneur’s pride in being “numerate data-driven,” 
From: San Francisco Chronicle
Andrew Yang is one of the best USA Presidential candidates considering him as the non veteran politician. There are so many supporters across USA including white,black yellow. left right.
Yes, Andrew Yang can do it for sure.

I am William Tan Seng,I joined face book many years ago. My face book friends slowly decreased because I have no extra time to go press "praising". and mostly I post same type of words related to Namoamituofo, Chinese call 南摩阿弥陀佛。If you want to add my as friend, I welcome you.But you can see my post always Amituofo 阿弥陀佛。

学弟子规,学做人

中华文化博大精深,在传播如何做人方面有很多的敎导。
只要那个地方有学习,那个地方就会和平。
中国人继承了这套传统,长冶久安。可惜近百年疏忽了。尤其是百多年被外族统冶的香港。虽然是华人,但是已失去华人传统的灵性。
看看最近的暴动,就知道这些好的沒学,坏的却去学,学外人什么示威这种下三流的文化。
中国人须要这种下三流的文化吗?
要学习如何做人才是香港应该做的,不要被枪炮下被压迫统冶,而被洗脑到忘记祖宗。
对不起,我又业障現前,写这些东西。
这就是证明业力多么可怕。

Peaceful mind

Life is ready short and now I realize the which one is important and not.
Now, I using the formula to examine.
Eyes,hearing, taste,mind: What we see/hear/taste things and it will affect our mindset. For example,I read news about trade war, Huawei saga and Hong Kong protests and my mind will have the opinions. My opinions can be different from others due to individual experience and background. From that it creates like and dislikes. Our emotions can be happy,sad,agitated,etc. This is ready bad because it creates greed,hatred and stupidity.
Realizing this, I don't want to be attached to all these, I want peaceful mind,this is my freedom of choice. I don't want to be in this daily confusion. So, I have deleted my recent blog posts about current affairs related to China,USA,Hong Kong.
After deleting it,I feel so nice,all my rubbishes cleared and I can focus beautiful things.
Life is ready good,it is up to individual. Actually my good friend told me to do something good and don't bother all these worldly conflict.
I take the advice and I think it is good to stop writing all these rubbishes.

本愿称名

“本愿为因,名号为果”,本愿、名号是属于佛这一边的。“本愿称名”,“本”“愿”“名”这三个字是属于佛这一边的;“称”即称念,是属于众生这一边的。所以,在“本愿称名”四个字中,包含了因果和生佛。
“为因果交彻、生佛一体之行”,什么叫“因果交彻”呢?就是因和果是互相交错、互相贯彻的。法藏比丘因中的誓愿一定贯彻到果上的名号,而果上的名号一定反流、追溯、透达到因中的誓愿,这叫“因果交彻”。
什么叫“生佛一体”呢?“生”即众生,众生在称念,称念的是阿弥陀佛果上的名号,称念弥陀名号,愿生弥陀净土,这样凡夫和佛成为一体。
“即是:以果地觉,为因地心,因该果海,果彻因源”,这四句话意义很深,也很透彻,很优美,但是不太容易懂。
“以果地觉,为因地心”,“果地觉”就是这句“南无阿弥陀佛”名号。法藏比丘已经成佛了,就有因地和果地——成佛之前叫因地,一旦成了佛就到了果地。果地的觉悟是在佛的立场上的,我们无法描述;无法描述的“果地觉”,阿弥陀佛就成之为这句名号。
“为因地心”是什么意思呢?我们现在信心称念阿弥陀佛名号,我们信。信什么?讲信心、“因地心”,就是众生这一边的,我们想要求生极乐世界。这是从众生还没往生的时候来说,我们在因地,因地的心就是指信心、愿心。
信心、愿心不是单独能生起的,单独生起的就是没有来源的。如果有人饿得要死了,人家对他说:“你一定能活下去,要有信心啊!”他没有粮食吃,哪能有信心?信心鼓不起来。他饿得要死了,端一碗小米粥给他,他不就有信心了吗?所谓信心,就依赖于这一碗小米粥,这碗小米粥就是他的信心之体。
我们要往生西方极乐世界,有人说“我靠自己的修行”。靠他自己的修行,那他的信心是以果地觉作为体的吗?不是的,是靠他自己的“杂毒之善”。
“杂毒之善”怎么能成为他的信心之体呢?显然,到后来生死关头、无常来临的时候,在无穷业力强大力量的冲击下,他那个“杂毒之善”当下粉碎,荡然无存。这个不能作为信心。
我们现在的信心以六字名号为体,我们信是信阿弥陀佛的名号是阿弥陀佛果地的觉悟、因中的誓愿,这样我们念佛才必定往生。除非法藏比丘没有成佛,除非他是骗子。
如果阿弥陀佛骗了我们,释迦牟尼佛骗了我们,十方诸佛也骗了我们,整个佛教就是一个骗子的学说,这些祖师大德从头到尾,两千多年来世界上这么多人的往生传、念佛往生的记录,这所有的都是骗子,那我们才不能往生。
这怎么可能呢?历史上这么多人,这么大的范围,大家都合伙来骗我们吗?有什么好处呢?所以,这是绝不可能的。这不可能,那么我们决定往生,所以说“以果地觉,为因地心”,这样才成为金刚信心。
善导大师说“共发金刚志,横超断四流”“此心深信,由若金刚”。怎么能够“由若金刚”?因为构成信心的原料就是金刚。什么能破坏阿弥陀佛的果地觉?不可能破坏的,这样的信心称为金刚信心。
我们信是信弥陀的誓愿、弥陀的名号,我们称名必然往生。所以,往生的资本,或者说资粮,都是以名号来说的。
如果以我们自己的修行,显然是豆腐渣工程,甚至用“豆腐渣工程”都不足以形容。这哪有金刚信心?
这样的人往往是什么样的呢?嘴上讲得很大,“外现贤善精进之相,内怀虚假”,甚至很骄慢。因为他需要骄慢,那就不如说他就是骄慢。
因为他如果不骄慢的话,就没办法生活下去,就会觉得“我这样怎么能往生?”所以,他就给自己鼓气说“我一定能往生,因为我在努力地修行,因为我很虔诚”等等,这样让自己感到安心。这都是不可靠的,一定要“以果地觉,为因地心”才可靠。
有的念佛老太太,什么都没有,字都不认识;但她知道有六字名号,这里面有金刚信心,这就是尊贵的念佛人。释迦牟尼佛说她是人中芬陀利花,没有说认识很多字是人中芬陀利花。因为往生极乐世界不需要认识字,认识字也不能成为金刚信心。
“因该果海,果彻因源”,“因该果海”,“该”是该罗、该摄,就是众生这一念的信心——信顺阿弥陀佛、愿往生的信愿心,把阿弥陀佛果地犹如大海一样的智慧功德通通包含了,在我们一念信心当中都有了,没有一点欠缺。
所以“速满足功德大宝海”,不仅仅是到极乐世界去速满足,也是现在这一念因心就已经满足了,不过还没有完全兑现出来。就好像《无量寿经》所说的:
其有得闻彼佛名号,
欢喜踊跃乃至一念,
当知此人为得大利,
则是具足无上功德。
一念之间得无上功德,这不就是“因该果海”吗?
蕅益大师《弥陀要解》也说:
一声阿弥陀佛,即释迦本师于五浊恶世所得之阿耨多罗三藐三菩提法。今以此果觉,全体授与浊恶众生,乃诸佛所行境界,唯佛与佛能究尽,非九界自力所能信解也。
释迦牟尼佛成佛,得无上阿耨多罗三藐三菩提,就得了这一句“南无阿弥陀佛”名号。今以此全部的果觉,给我们五浊恶世的众生;我们当下称名,功德、福德、智慧跟阿弥陀佛平等。这不就是因该果海吗?
“果彻因源”是什么意思呢?阿弥陀佛的果地觉悟,完全贯彻在凡夫一念的因心当中,贯彻在源头。
我们还没有往生,还是在起源的地方,我们初发心,这一念愿意往生的心,阿弥陀佛的果地觉悟当下就贯彻进来了。
这样,凡夫和佛完全吻合,我们在凡夫身的时候,就充满了阿弥陀佛六字名号的功德,怎么不往生?五逆众生也没问题,决定可以往生!
我们讲来讲去,就是告诉大家:往生极乐世界是免费的,极乐世界是无条件送给你的。阿弥陀佛说:“欢迎你,邀请你,拜托你,请你来往生。如果你不来,我下一次再请。”
