Zhuhong, in his Commentary on the Amitābha Sūtra, uses the lucidity of mind to elaborate the tenet "self-nature Amitābha, mind-only pure land." This way he imparts that each person originally has the self-nature of buddha and virtues. This understanding can be applied to start the practice, discover that the mind inherently possesses buddha-nature, uphold the name and be reborn in the pure land. Further, Zhuhong employs the tenet "one mind opens two" from the Awakening of Faith to explain a relationship between self-nature, function, and characteristic. He uses the tenets "thusness of mind" and "arising and ceasing of mind" to elucidate that relying on faith, vows, and remembrance of name one awakens to "mind-only pure land," "self-nature Amitābha", and realizes that Amitābha is not outside one's own mind. In this paper, I explain that the self-nature means abiding in the true mind, yet the beginningless ignorance hinders the calmness and lucidity of true mind. Therefore, Zhuhong elaborates the doctrine "self-nature Amitabha, mind-only pure land" from the Amitābha Sūtra to prompt practitioners disclose their self-nature. This is Zhuhong's application of the "arising and ceasing of mind" tenet. Moreover, I illustrate how Zhuhong uses the "one mind opens two" reasoning for the self-nature to reveal "thusness of mind," the "arising and ceasing of mind," and to explain "abiding in the true mind." Single-mindedly based phenomena and principle one attains the realm of nonobstruction between phenomena. At the time the Buddha, this scripture belonged to the vaipulya family. Although it was not expounded directly like the Avataṃsaka, Lotus Sūtra; the teaching is based on the Buddha's teaching. It can purify defilements of the mind and bring about the awakening. Relying on its skillful means, perfect and sudden teaching, one will ultimately with mind of equanimity penetrate the realm of inconceivable liberation.
