阿弥陀佛


Explanation:
Amitabha is the Buddha to deliver people to Sukhavati (Paradise in Buddhist religion). Buddhists chant his name when in distress or peril and when distress and peril is removed in the sense of "Please, Lord" and "Thank you, lord". People in the estern society use it frequently in this sense.
