Amida Buddha lived countless lives as a bodhisattva named Dharmakara. He accumulated an infinite amount of merit in order to fulfill his bodhisattva vows. As a result, Amida Buddha now presides over his own pure land – Sukhavati – and he has become a Buddha. The pure land of Sukhavati is the most sought after of all the pure lands. It is believed to be a land of visual and sonorous delights.
The requirements to gain admittance to Sukhavati are very simple provided they are preformed with absolute faith and sincerity. Simply recite the Amitabha mantra 10 times. If so, devotees will be granted admitted and receive special teachings from Amida Buddha and his retinue of bodhisattvas. Additionally, they are protected from ever falling back into the vicissitudes of samsara.
Look at our Amida Buddha Thangka painting to visualize what it will be like in the pure land Sukhavati. In a land of infinite beauty Amida Buddha sits in full lotus pose depicting the Dhyana mudra. Additionally, he sits on a single lotus pedestal with the alms bowl in the palms of his hands. Click here to learn more about Amida Buddha.
