TADYATHA Shariputra, you must see that in the midst of this evil world of five corruptions I have achieved this difficult thing of attaining Anuttara-samyaksambodhi, and for the benefit of all the beings I am preaching the Law which is difficult to be accepted.

Rāga could also be translated as “infatuation,” but the three root poisons, rāga, dosa, and moha, are very often translated as “greed, hatred, and delusion,” and so “greed” seems close enough. He represents love and compassion, and he is pictured as being the rich, warm color of the setting sun. Anyway, I just don’t know whether, in the parts of the Buddhist world where Amitayus and Amitabha are regarded as being the same figure, the mantras are used interchangeably.

Amitabha is dressed as a monk, with his hands in the mudra (hand gesture) of dhyana (meditation). I just love the beautiful simplicity of Zen, the more I read about it the more I want to do it. He is the principal Buddha in the Pure Land sect, a branch of Buddhism practiced mainly in East Asia, while in Vajrayana Amitabha is known for his longevity attribute and the aggregate of distinguishing (recognition) and the deep awareness of individualities.

This chant is also known as “Dharani for pulling out karmic obstructions by the roots and obtaining birth in the Pure Land” or ” Rebirth Mantra ”. Thank you for your response, well, I’ve been going through some books I have, you all provide useful guidance in the English language and I have attended sessions in the Twin Cities where really I did not know what was going on at times but I thank them for their gracious kindness for letting me attend. So “Amitabha” encountered by the Tibetan reader would be said “Amidewa” but not because it means anything other than Amitabha: Infinite Light.

The teachings help us progress on the Bodhisattva’s compassionate path to Enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. Sometimes an idiom — “a whole other animal,” “a different kettle of fish,” “a bird of another feather” — is just an idiom, and to draw from such an idiom the assumption that I believe non-Buddhists to be ignorant is rather a stretch.
In some traditions Amitabha and Amitayus are seen as being essentially the same being, while in other traditions they are distinct.

All of these emanations represent the compassion of the Lotus family, and also the Speech of the Buddhas (Dharma). Balance – We move the feet and the toes. In Tibetan, the letter chosen to encode a sanskrit “Bha” is the “Wa”, and also in Tibetan the syllable “Tab” would be said by a native as “De” because those kind of a’s get ‘umlauted’ in Tibetan. My grateful thanks to you and to Jayarava for your input. Beautiful chanting of Om Ami Dewa Hrih, the mantra of Amitabha: Pronounced: Ohm Ah-me-tah-bah Hree  (with the H “aspirated”). Maybe that’s why they smile so much? A Pure Land is what we might think of as a parallel dimension or alternative universe which has been constructed by the infinite merit of a Buddha in his eons of practice.
