Buddha Amitabha, red or golden in color, hands in meditation gesture, has the Pure Land called Sukhavati, where huge jewel trees, enormous lotus ponds and palaces are results of his pure actions and vows to benefit all sentient beings. Especially in the very popular Pure Land tradition the practitioners aspire to be born in Sukhavati.

Amitabha literally means "boundless light". Usually the bodhisattvas Avalokiteshvara and Vajrapani in peaceful form stand next to him.

Amitabha is also one of the five dhyani buddhas, embodiment of discriminating wisdom.

Amitayus, the bodhisattva form of Amitabha, literally means "boundless life".
