BuddhaAmitabha is the oldest Buddha among the Dhyani Buddhas. He said that he should live in peaceful meditation in Sukhabati heaven. It has a red color that comes from the red syllable HRIH. It represents the cosmic element of Sanjna (name). His vehicle is a peacock. He shows Samadhi Mudra with his two palms lying on his lap. He has a lotus as his sign. When depicted at the stupa, it always faces the west. He is worshiped for salvation. Sometimes you hold a patra in the same position. Amitabha means “limitless light” or incomprehensible.
