More information

Amitabha Buddha is a celestial Buddha according to the traditions of Mahayana Buddhism, and in East Asia as the principle Buddha in Pure Land Buddhism, a major Mahayana subdivision. Pure Land advances an array of heavenly realms and teaches methods by which one may be reborn in one of these paradises. The cult of Amitabha in China can be traced back to at least 2nd century CE, when the Sukhavativyuha Sutra was first translated into Chinese. In Vajrayana Buddhism, Amitabha is considered one of the Five Dhyani Buddhas who is associated with the western direction.
