Sorry for the misunderstanding. I did not mean the book. I have the book myself. I meant his Ph.D. Dissertation on Wonhyo's Commentaries on the Awakening of Faith in Mahayana which I can't access here.


I suppose his translation as part of the Wonhyo series will be based on this PhD paper. I will await that book, even though I see that Wonhyo stopped his commentary before parts 4 & 5 of the A of F.
Every time you recite Amita Buddha’s name, a ray of light shines through empty space. If you recite very sincerely, then this light fills up the universe, so that the energy of all worlds will be auspicious and harmonious.

今以佛眼觀之佛與眾生同住解脫之床。無此無彼無二平等。
Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.
