Amitabha Buddha is the central figure in Pure Land Buddhism and he also has his own pure land called Sukhavati. The pure land of Sukhavati is a land of sonorous and visual bliss. Additionally, devotees are only required to recite Amitabha’s mantra 10 times or say his name to gain admittance. Our Amitabha Buddha Tibetan thangka painting depicts Amitabha sitting in full lotus pose depicting the Dhyana mudra. He also sits on a single lotus pedestal and has the alms bowl in the palm of his right hand.
Amitabha Buddha spent countless lifetimes as a Bodhisattva named Dharmakara. He remained a Bodhisattva for a very long time because he had vowed to forgo Buddhahood until he had his own pure land. After obtaining an infinite amount of merit he was granted his pure land and became a Buddha. Additionally, he is known as the “Buddha of Infinite Light”. Devotees are encouraged to join him and they will receive protection and mentoring until they are able to become fully enlightened Buddhas. Furthermore, they will never be allowed to fall back into the vicissitudes of samsara. Click here to learn more about Amitabha Buddha.
