One could go on. One could create, maybe, a typology of different sorts of Amidists, but it would be very complicated and would never do full justice to the people. I see that there are many different approaches according with the many different characters within this movement and I rejoice in it. Amida speaks to each of us in our heart and he speaks to each in a manner that accords with the need of that person at this particular phase in his or her spiritual growth. None of us has the final, complete or perfect interpretation. We are bombu. We all live together within the all embracing love of the Tathagata, within the one light, even though the spectrum that it breaks up into as it passes through each prism is unique. What a splendour of lights!
