Amitabha Buddha Sukhavati Pure Land
Amitabha Buddha spent countless lifetimes as a Bodhisattva named Dharmakara. As a result, he accumulated an infinite amount of merit and he is known as the “Buddha of Infinite Light and Life”. Amitabha had vowed to forgo Buddhahood until he had his own pure land. After he fulfilled his arduous vows, he became a Buddha and he has his own pure land called – Sukhavati.
This is the most beautiful of all the pure lands in Pure Land Buddhism. To gain entry to Sukhavati, Amitabha only requires that devotees say his name or recite the Amitabha mantra. The Amitabha mantra is very simple and a devotee only needs to say – “om amitabha hrih” 10 times. Once admitted to Sukhavati devotees will never fall back into the vicissitudes of samsara and will receive special teachings from Amitabha and his retinue of Bodhisattvas.
