Amitayus, meaning 'Infinite Life’, is the Buddha of boundless life and wisdom. He sits in vajra-posture, with his hands resting upon his lap in the dhyana-mudra of meditation. Amitayus is closely connected with Amitabha, the Buddha of infinite Light.
Upon his open palms rests his a golden long-life vase that is filled with the nectar of immortal wisdom, which is sealed at its top with a small wish-granting tree. Amitayus is adorned with the five divine silk garments and eight ornaments, and he sits upon a moon disc and lotus.
