Our gold gilded Amitabha Buddha statue was created with great precision and an eye for detail. This is most evident on the robe. As a result, the Buddha of “infinite light” is complimented by more than the sparkle of gold. The combination of elegance and sparkle make this Amitabha Buddha statue a number one choice for Pure Land Buddhists.
Pure Land of Sukhavati
All devotees are welcome in Amitabha’s pure land called Sukhavati. Additionally, Amitabha was a Buddha of great compassion. As a result, he has made it very simple to gain entrance into his delightful pure land. Devotees simply need to say his name 10 times out loud or recite the Amitabha mantra.
Furthermore, Amitabha is one of the Dhyani Buddhas. Although they each have a pure land, Sukhavati is the most sought after. This is because the pure land of Sukhavati is a land of sonorous and visual delights.
Full Lotus Pose
This Amitabha Buddha statue sits in full lotus pose on top of a single lotus pedestal. A lotus flower is a very significant symbol in Buddhism. These attributes are a common feature on most Buddha statues. A Lotus flower symbolizes rising above the sea of suffering and blooming in the pure air of blissful virtue.
In the natural environment, this is how the lotus flower grows. It rises up out of the muddy pond to form a perfect blossom above the water. As a result, the lotus makes a perfect symbol for impeccable virtue.
The Dhyana mudra is also known as the “meditation” mudra. It is depicted with the right hand on top of the left hand resting in the lap. Both palms are facing straight up. This is used by Buddhists because it enhances concentration during meditation. Therefore, it is a very important mudra and it is commonly associated with Amitabha Buddha statues.
