Part of the SKT220 Buddhist Ayurveda Course on Sanskrit Terms

Amitabha Buddha

Amitabha Buddha

Amitabha's body is the color of Gold,

The splendor of his hallmarks has no peer.

The light of his brow shines round a Hundred Worlds (see World System and Dharma Realm)

Wide as the sea are his eyes Pure and Clear.

Shining in his brilliance by transformation (see Transformation Body)

Are countless Bodhisattvas and infinite Buddhas.

His Forty-Eight Vows will be our liberation,

In Nine Lotus Stages we reach the farthest shore.

Homage to the Buddha of the Western Pure Land,

Kind and compassionate Amitabha.

Source: (RH 137-138; UW 28)
