While in the earthly realm as Dharmakara, Amitabha was a prince who renounced his kingdom to pursue a life of austerity. Dharmakara accumulated infinite merit and eventually achieved Buddhahood. As a result, he now has his own pure land – Sukhavati. In the “Larger Sutra of Immeasurable Life” it is proclaimed that devotees only need to recite his name 10 times to gain entry into Sukhavati. Our crowned Amitabha statue will last for many lifetimes and can be passed down for many generations.
Crowned Amitabha Statue Features
Our crowned Amitabha statue depicts the Dhyana “meditation” mudra. Additionally, Amitabha holds an alms bowl also known as a “Gulpa” or rice bowl. The bowl symbolizes overcoming attachment and desire for earthly possessions. Amitabha Buddha statues are common features in Buddhist temples. However, a statue in your own home will create inspiration and foster dedication.
