Tibetan: tshe dpag med
Sanskrit: amitayus

Product Code: G00027

The Buddha of infinite life. As a sambhogakaya Buddha he wears ornaments and a crown. He is red and his hands hold a long life vase (amrita kalasha) with on top a twig of the Ashoka tree and his hands are in dhyana mudra.

Amitayus, White Tara and Namgyalma form together the Three Long Life Deities.

Other representations of him have Amitayus depicted in nirmakaya form, holding the long life vase or a begging bowl. In this last case he looks like Amitabha.
