Chinese Black Bronze Amitabha Buddha


Chinese black bronze Amitabha Buddha. The Buddha of “Infinite Light”: He is synonymous with compassion and happiness. The position of the Buddha’s arms indicates that the hands were once held in a gesture of meditation. Know in Japan as Amida and in China as Emituo Fo. Ages ago a monk named Dharmakara made a number of vows including one that states that on his attaining buddhahood, all who had faith in him and who called upon his name would be reborn in his paradise and would reside there in bliss until they had attained enlightenment. Having accomplished his all his vows, Dharmakara reigned as the buddha Amitabha in Paradise (Sukhavati), the Pure Land.
