Buddha Amitayus Tsa Tsa

Front Side Side View [1] Side View [2] Palm print on back

Amitayus is a subform of the Dhyani Buddha Amitabha. He is the Buddha of immeasurable life. He sits on a single layered lotus throne. In his hands folded in the meditation gesture [dhyâna mudra] he holds a water vessel [Tibetan: C'um bum- pa] with a stylized tree of life.

The vessel contains "Amrta", which means "nectar" and "immortality" at the same time. A flowering branch of Ashoka grows out of the vessel. This branch symbolizes the sacred flower of the unfolding spiritual-meditative life.

In contrast to Amitabha, Amitayus is always depicted with a Bodhisattva crown.
