Description
 
The Pure Land School is a form of Mahayana Buddhism that centers around the Buddha of Infinite Light and Life, known in Japanese as Amida, in Chinese as O-mi-t'o, and in Sanskrit as Amitabha and Amitayus. This Buddha is dwelling in the Land of Happiness, far to the west of this world, beyond the realms of samsara. With boundless wisdom and compassion, he perceives the problems of existence of those who are suffering from evil karma in samsara and provides means of emancipation.
The most important scriptures of the Pure Land School are the following three:
(1) The Sutra on the Buddha of Infinite Life (in translation entitled the Larger Sutra on Amitayus and abbreviated to the Larger Sutra; the Sanskrit text is popularly known as the Larger Sukhavativyuha Sutra).
(2) The Sutra on Contemplation of Amitayus (abbreviated to the Contemplation Sutra).
(3) The Sutra on the Buddha Amitayus (the Smaller Sutra on Amitayus; abbreviated to the Smaller Sutra; the Sanskrit text is popularly known as the Smaller Sukhavativyuha Sutra).
