Amitayus or Amida, is a Buddha of Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism. He reigns over the "Western Pure Land of Bliss", a marvelous world, pure, perfect, free from evil and suffering. This pure land, a place of refuge outside the cycle of transmigrations — equivalent to nirvaņa according to certain conceptions — is at the center of the beliefs and practices of the schools of the pure land. This Buddha, which is also called the Buddha of Buddhas, is very popular among Mahayanists, particularly in the Chinese world, Korea, Japan, Tibet, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. In statuary, Amitabha is represented as Shakyamuni Buddha, but with the gestures (mudra) of meditation or the transmission of the law.
