Is the Pure Land path a legitimate one?
Why or Why Not?

I ask this question, by the way, because I want to ordain at Wat Pah Nanachat, but I'm also considering practicing Pure Land as a layman.

Anyway, I've decided I'd like to become a Monk at Wat Pah Nanachat.
Does anyone have any helpful advice for me?
