The name Amityus Buddha means the “Buddha of infinite light” and in Tibetan understanding is said to be one of the five “self-born” Buddhas that exists eternally. After achieving enlightenment, Amitava began reigning over Sukhavati (the western paradise known as “the pure land”).
In Tibetan Buddhism, Amityus is usually depicted in red to symbolize love, compassion, and emotional energy. He protects beings from negative emotions of attachment, and he represents the ultimate antidote against greed and desire. In Tibet he is worshipped by those who wish to attain longevity.
The Amityus Buddha here is seen with Boddhisattva Avalokiteshwara and Padmapani. Avalokiteśvara (Chenrezig in Tibetan Buddhism), is one of the most eminent deities in Buddhism. He is referred to as the Bodhisattva of compassion. He is recognized as the earthly expression of the eternal Buddha, Amitabha, who is occasionally featured in his headdress. In Tibet and most other Himalayan regions, Avalokiteshvara is associated with the Dalai Lamas and the Dalai Lama is believed to be the emanation of Avalokiteshvara.
