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)

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)

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)
