The Buddha Amitabha, known as the Buddha of Infinite or Boundless Light, is considered the protector of beings who call upon him as they experience death and the after-death transitions in the bardo. Amitabha is also central to the practice of Phowa (the transference of consciousness or liberation at the time of death). Buddha Amitabha and related practices, work with the enlightened energy of discriminating wisdom. The purpose of reciting the mantra while visualizing Amitabha is to help clear away the deluded energy of passion or attachment from our minds. If this is accomplished, we can live with more kindness, joy and unconditional love for ourselves as well as all beings.
Through Amitabha practices, our deluded passion, grasping, and attachment are transmuted into the clear-sighted warmth of true loving compassion. The ego's selfish demands yield to our deepening commitment to others' well-being and enlightenment.
