Then when I chanted the name of Namo Amitabha Buddha, suddenly I was very excited because a loud bell sound came in my ears. Amitabha Buddha suddenly appeared in the air and emitted golden light as He slowly descended into the altar. I quickly prostrated myself to Amitabha Buddha. Amitabha Buddha touched my head and pointed to the west to let me see the gate to the World of Ultimate Bliss. Light rays shone from inside the gate, and golden light enveloped the outside of the gate. Its brightness was a million times more than the sun.
