For hundreds of thousands of Bodhisattva lifetimes Amitabha endeavored to obtain his own pure land called Sukhavati. As a result, he obtained an infinite amount of merit as a Bodhisattva named Dharmakara. After fulfilling his onerous vows, he became a Buddha and his new pure land came to be.
As such, devotees can gain admittance if they only recite his name or the Amitabha mantra. The Amitabha mantra is “om amitabha hrih”. After proper and faithful recitation devotees are granted admittance to Sukhavati. In Sukhavati, they will be nurtured until they can become Buddhas. Additionally, they will never again fall back into the vicissitudes of samsara. The owner of this authentic Amitabha Buddha Tibetan thangka painting can visualize Amitabha in his pure land.
