Amitayus Buddha

Amitayus, Buddha (Tibetan: tse pag me. English: the Enlightened One of Immesurable Life) Lord of Limitless Life and Pristine Awareness, the Sambogakaya aspect (Enjoyment Body) of Amitabha Buddha.

Amitayus, with a body red in colour, one face, two hands and with two long eyes glancing with compassion on beings, gazing on the entirety of migrators; and a smiling face, wearing the complete sambhogakaya vestments. Above the two hands held in meditation is a long-life vase filled with the nectar of immortality; with the hair in tufts, adorned with silks and jewels, seated in vajra posture above a lotus and lion supported tiered throne.

Amitayus is shown richly clad. His hair is painted blue and falls on either side of his shoulders. He has elongated earlobes like the Shakyamuni Buddha and has the urna (an auspicious tuft of hair between the eyebrows signifying superhuman quality).

In the lower part of the painting can be seen the three-faced Ushnishavijaya (Tib.: nam par gyal ma) at the left and to the right can be seen the White Tara (Tib.: drol ma kar mo). The presence of these two deities in this artwork is very significant since along with Amitayus, Ushnishavijaya and the White Tara form the triad of longevity deities in canonical Buddhist iconography.In Tibetan these three figures are known as the ‘Tse Lha Nam Sum,’ the Three Long-life Deities.

The victorious one Amitayus is aware of the unbearable sufferings of beings-death, illness, and so forth-and, due to a great love for them, has unsurpassable power to bestow the glory of long life and freedom from illness. Since this power has emanated thus as the victorious one Amitayus, this deity will confer on whoever remembers and relies on him the spiritual attainment of longevity and freedom hindrances.

: [Four-arms Avalokitesvara]

The Avalokitesvara, the left attendant of the Buddha Amitabha,is one of the triumvirate sants in Wester Pure Land.

Avalokiteshvara is the Bodhisattva of compassion, and compassion is the distinguishing mark of the Bodhisattva. He represents the active manifestation in the world of the boundless love and compassion of the Buddha Amitabha. The four-arms of Avalokiteshvara represent the four Tantric functions of pacifying, increasing, attracting, and destroying.

Manjushri (tib. Jambelyang) is the bodhisattva of wisdom, one of the three pillars of attaining enlightenment. Portrayed as a young man golden in color, his most distinctive feature is the flaming sword that he holds up in his right hand, which he uses to cut through ignorance and the obstacles in the way of reaching nirvana. Over his left shoulder upon a lotus blossom rests the prajnaparamita, the scripture of perfected wisdom.

The oldest bodhisattva, Manjushri has a special connection with the Kathmandu valley. Discovering a pure self-emanating light in the middle of a vast lake, he cut a gorge for the water to empty out leaving only a lotus that was the throne for the pure light. To keep it safe, Manjushri covered the light with what now is Swayambunath stupa, and left, leaving behind a valley where the ancient lake used to be. That valley is now called the Kathmandu valley.
