Amitābha, also Amida or Amitāyus, is a celestial buddha described in the scriptures of Mahāyāna Buddhism. In Japanese, he is also called Amida Nyōrai (阿弥陀如来, "the Tathāgata Amitābha"). Amitābha is the principal buddha in Pure Land Buddhism, a branch of East Asian Buddhism. In Vajrayana Buddhism, Amitābha is known for his longevity attribute, magnetising red fire element, the aggregate of discernment, pure perception and the deep awareness of emptiness of phenomena. According to these scriptures, Amitābha possesses infinite merits resulting from good deeds over countless past lives as a bodhisattva named Dharmakāra. Amitābha means "Infinite Light" so Amitābha is also called "The Buddha of Immeasurable Life and Light".
