Dad is Amitabha

When I was young, my father was a drunkard and he would come home late at night kicking up a drunken stupor, so my ties with him was quite estranged. As I aged and practise contemplation of Amitabha Buddha, I came to visualize dad as Amitabha Buddha and he too became quite sober. I began to love him slot more and our soured ties became a close form of friendship. 

As I devote myself to Amitabha Pureland practice, I dedicate my merits to the well-being of my loved ones and also all sentient beings, and I can see my dad becoming more and more pious and decent with each passing day, so it makes me feel happy and grateful at the same time. 

My dad is already 75 years old this year, I don't know how much longer I can have him around, but I am thankful that Amitabha has helped us bridge our bonds for the better. I express thanks and pledge to continue to practise.
