I think this is a very useful thread, so I'm bumping it.
What does daily life practice as a Pure Land devotee look like to you?
For me, I chant the name for 30 minutes in the morning and the evening, after offering incense and candles. I may start chanting a text in the morning as well, once I find something... this thread has some good links.
In the evening session, visualization has become an important part of my day. I visualize Amida standing in front of me, shining brightly and warmly like sunlight. In such a presence, I can't help but frankly notice my shortcomings that day but at the same time feel completely understood and unconditionally embraced. You automatically want to do your best.
The cynical mind in me wants to say I'm daydreaming. I tell that mind that it's more like calling a friend who comes right away.
Throughout the day, just reciting the name can be a bit complicated for complicated beings, making it a mechanical act.
One mode of recitation I've found helpful is to make every activity an offering of the nembutsu, as though all our little chores and hobbies are actually done for our dear friend, Amida. Slice this as thinly as you want: offering the act of going to the kitchen, or each step, or each small movement of the body. The line between giving/given in this way becomes very blurry indeed.
Slow or rapid recitation: slow to savor and know each precious syllable, and rapid recitation as though the nembutsu is soil from which your thoughts and activities sprout.
Being like neither the upside down cup, cracked up, or too full cup of the stories, but like a cup with no bottom. I think gratitude/generosity is the unique focus of Pure Land, so we practice gratitude and giving away the instant we receive, to be even a fraction as generous as Amida. In the nembutsu, we can recognize all the colors of our lives as gifts: praise, insult, a loving thought, impatience, disappointment, laughter, tears.
And one of the most invaluable things to me has been to seek the nembutsu with great thoroughness and curiosity, wondering where it'll pop up next... I've found it nestled in my cranky boredom at work, in a good joke, at the bottom of my plate, and all over the garden
Seeing the depth of this activity in our daily lives, allowing ourselves to be surprised, we become more and more receptive.
