Amitabha Buddha sits on a single lotus pedestal in full lotus pose. He also has the marks of a Buddha such as the third eye of wisdom, elongated ears and the three neck lines. Furthermore, behind the crown he wears the ushnisha topknot and the right turning hair coils.
Amitabha Buddha is highly venerated in Mahayana and also Tibetan Buddhism. However, in Tibet he is highly affiliated with his Sambhogakaya embodiment known as Aparmita. Aparmita represents the longevity attribute of Amitabha and they are one in the same. Additionally, Amitabha Buddha is known as the “Buddha of Infinite Light” because of the infinite lifetimes he spent as a bodhisattva known as Dharmakara.
