The Buddhas of the Three Worlds are widely worshipped in Mahayana Buddhism. They serve as a constant reminder to practice goodness in body, speech, and mind; to cherish the present moment and everyone we meet; and to regard everything that happens in life as a blessing, bringing joy, peace and security. These three images, each seated in the lotus posture on a lotus throne, are based on the Buddhas of the Three Worlds in the Main Hall at Fo Guang Shan in Taiwan.
On the left is Amitabha, who presides over the Western Pure Land; he is making the wish-granting gesture with his right hand and holding a lotus stand with his right hand. Amitabha (Unlimited Light or Unlimited Life) is commonly depicted holding a lotus, representing rebirth inside a lotus in his Western Pure Land; he functions as a savior who ushers the faithful out of samsara (the endless cycle of birth and death) and into his heavenly realm characterized by optimal conditions for the attainment of enlightenment. Thus worship of Amitabha is aimed at attaining rebirth in his pure land, where final liberation is expected.
