Amitayus is the Buddha of Infinite Life adorned in the silken robes and jewellery of royalty. Amitayus is the reflexive form of Amitabha and is the embodiment of infinite life and therefore the focus of the life practices that remove the possibility of untimely or premature death. Amitayus brings about a healing of sicknesses, degeneration and imbalances in the five elements of the body due to karma, excess and unclean living. Amitayus is known as the Buddha of long life. Amitayus is often red but sometimes white in color. His two hands rest in his lap in the Mudra of equanimity with the palms facing each other holding the Vase of Life that is filled with the nectar of immortality. It is only in the Tantric Buddhism of Tibet and Japan that Amitayus and Amitabha are considered different deities.
