Untitled[edit]

It seems to me that the Japanese word Nembutsu is much better attested in English than the modern Chinese word Nianfo, even if the modern Japanese term derives from a Chinese original. I would suggest placing this entry under Nembutsu. Charmii 02:36, 24 August 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]

True, but the Chinese originally coined the term, so it's probably sensible to leave it at that. Still, I see what you're seeing. --Ph0kin (talk) 13:54, 13 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Vietnamese pronunciation[edit]

I believe the Vietnamese pronunciation is "a zee da fut", and is true for all dialects, but I'd appreciate if someone could confirm. I learned it in college-courses, but it's been a long time, and I only know Northern Dialect. --Ph0kin (talk) 13:54, 13 August 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Pronounciation Link[edit]

Is there anyone skilled with adding english pronounciation, under Indian Sanskrit Nianfo it would be great to have it under Namo'mitabhaya buddhaya and namo'mitayuse buddhaya.

Mistake[edit]

The correct transcription of the mantra in Sanskrit would be as follows:

"namo'mitābhabuddhāya" — "na mō mi tā bha bu ddhā ya"

Changing the title?[edit]

Shouldn't the title be the romanised Sanskrit term, not the Chinese term, since the Sanskrit term is older then the Chinese term itself? 203.29.147.127 (talk) 15:05, 6 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It seems to have developed as the basis of a new sect much more in East Asia than in India. Wikipedia follows common usage in English, not what is most theoretically correct (WP:COMMONNAME)... AnonMoos (talk) 00:36, 7 April 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
