Amitabha Buddha Tibetan Thangka Painting 34.25″ x 25″
Amitabha Buddha spent many thousands of lifetimes as a Bodhisattva named Dharmakara. As a result, he accumulated an infinite amount of merit. After he obtained Buddhahood, he became known as the “Buddha of Infinite Light”. However, he had vowed to obtain his own pure land before accepting Buddhahood. This is what resulted in so many Bodhisattva lifetimes.
During these many thousands of lifetimes, he studied all of the pure lands. When his time came and he was granted a pure land, he named it Sukhavati. Sukhavati has become the most sought after of all the pure lands and it is a land of visual and sonorous bliss. By studying our Amitabha Buddha Tibetan Thangka painting devotees can begin to visualize the pure land of Sukhavati.
Amitabha Buddha sits in his pure land in full lotus pose on top of a single lotus pedestal. Additionally, he is depicting the Dhyana mudra and an alms bowl rests in the palms of his hands. Above Amitabha, the Five Wisdom Tathagatas are floating in the clouds. On each side grow the verdant forests found in Sukhavati and at his feet are two Arahants.
For devotees that wish to join Amitabha in Sukhavati they only need say his name or recite his mantra – “om amitabha hrih” – 10 times. After admission to Sukhavati, devotees will never be allowed to fall back into the vicissitudes of samsara. Additionally, they will receive special teachings from Amitabha and his retinue of Bodhisattvas.
