Buddha of Limitless Light

(tib: Opame / skt: Amitaba)

The Buddha of Limitless Light represents the transformation of desire into discriminating wisdom.

One of the qualities of a Buddha is what is called Tathagata or one who has gone over into suchness (tathata) and realized the transcendent reality of all things. Having transcended they can also appear in purified embodiments to reach out to all beings. Amitaba is one of the five transcendent Buddhas of the five Buddha families. Over the centuries these five Buddhas became popular and a symbolic key for the understanding of spiritual transformation. Amitaba is the Buddha of the West where his Pure Land Sukhavati (dewa-chen) is located. Amitaba is the most popular of the five Buddhas and there are many practices associated with his quality. The practice of Phowa (one of the six yogas of Naropa) transfers the consciousness of the practitioner to Amitaba's Pure Land at the moment of death. He is the color of the setting sun representing the fire element, head of the lotus family and he sits in meditation posture holding a bowl full of nectar.

Meditating on Amitaba will transform desire into discriminating wisdom as well as other qualities of enlightenment.
