I am new to this forum and this is my first post.
I am glad I found this forum as I have questions regarding Buddha's Name recitation that I have failed to find the answers so far.
I have been practicing recitation of Amitabha since 2010. Being an ethnic chinese, I started reciting "阿彌陀佛" as how every chinese cultivator pronounces the name. However, as time went by, I found reciting 'Amitabha Buddha' in English pronunciation much easier. This is especially so, when I am doing silent recitation. For some unknown reason(s), I find it difficult to pronounce the syallabus "陀" in my mind during silent recitation.
The question I would like to ask is: can one pronounce 'Amitabha Buddha' instead of "阿彌陀佛" for one's cultivation? Or is this a must that one uses "阿彌陀佛"?
Many thanks in advance.
