Art of Thangka

Buddha Amitabha  reigns over Sukhavati Pure Land, the western paradise. Those reborn in the Pure Land experience the joy of hearing Amitabha teaches the Dharma until they are ready to enter Nirvana.

Amitabha symbolizes mercy and wisdom.  He is sometimes pictured in between the  eight great Bodhisattvas Avalokiteshvara, Vajrapani, Manjushri and others.
