Amitabha - The Buddha of Infinite Light
According to the Larger Sutra of Immeasurable Life, the magnificence
of Amitabha surpasses that of all other great beings, thus he is known
as the Buddha of all the Buddhas. Buddha Shakyamuni once said of Amitabha,
"The majestic glory of his light could not be exhaustively described if I
praised it continuously, day and night, for the period of one kalpa."
Amitabha dwells in a pure celestial realm, created via the power
of his infinite merit accumulated over countless lifetimes as a
Bodhisattva. His light shines brilliantly from this celestial realm,
pervading the entire universe. According to the Sutra, if sentient
beings encounter his light, their defilements are removed; if they see his light,
they are relieved and freed from affliction. At the end of their lives, beings
who have faith in Amitabha reach emancipation, as he gives them rebirth in
his Pure Land. And as Shakyamuni explains, "Sentient beings who are born in
that Buddha-land all reside among those assured of nirvana."
Gestures and Attributes
Amitabha is depicted in Dhyana Mudra, the gesture of
meditation, with both palms face up and lying in his lap. His right hand,
resting on top, symbolizes the state of enlightenment, while his left hand,
resting below, represents the world of appearance. Thus, Amitabha's posture
expresses his mastery over the world of appearance through enlightenment, and
signifies the enlightened state of mind for which samsara and nirvana are one.
In some representations, he holds the traditional begging bowl of an ordained Buddhist monk.
The bowl is filled with amrita, the elixir of awakening and immortality,
and symbolizes Amitabha's infinite openness and receptivity toward all sentient
About this Sculpture
This statue is a charming portrayal of Amitabha. Finely
sculpted from copper alloy, the statue has been submitted to an oxidation
process to yield a rich and sensuous finish. The Buddha sits gracefully
in meditation upon a lotus throne, expressing the calm majesty of one who
has mastered himself. With his head slightly inclined, he seems to smile with
a secret inner joy, prompting feelings of encouragement and happiness in the
observer. His robes are exquisitely carved throughout, showing marvelous
detailing especially on the back of the sculpture, where a beautiful lotus blossom is surrounded by intricately
carved leaves and vines. And over all, the lovely copper finish lends a
pleasing sense of warmth, gently inviting one to linger, leaving thoughts
of the world behind.
