Crowned Amitabha Buddha Statue
The Pure Land celestial heaven named Sukhavati is the home of Amitabha. However, Amitabha Buddha was originally a Prince who renounced his kingdom. After his renunciation he was eventually reborn as a bodhisattva named Dharmakara. As a result of many thousands of bodhisattva lifetimes, he accumulated infinite merit and obtained his pure land.
Sukhavati is a pure land which is built on this foundation of merit and infinite light. Furthermore, the light that shines forth from Sukhavati has the power to remove defilements and temptation from sentient beings. The light is so powerful that Amitabha is known as the Buddha of “immeasurable light and life”. Our crowned Amitabha Buddha Statue can be used as an inspirational tool to strive for a divine rebirth.
In Pure Land Buddhist beliefs, Amitabha is the Dhyani Buddha who represents compassion and wisdom. Although all of the Dhyani Buddhas have their own pure lands, devotees hold Sukhavati in highest esteem. Additionally, once sentient beings are reborn into Sukhavati they will be accompanied by bodhisattvas and they are assured of achieving enlightenment. Click here to learn more about Amitabha Buddha.
