Term Definition
Pureland

(tib.: dag zhing) A Buddhas land is said to be blissful and free from impurity and is therefore called a pure land. It is said that any noise which we hear in a pure realm is like a Dharma teaching. These realms are presided over by various Buddhas such as Amitabha, Avalokiteshvara, and Maitreya who presides over Tushita. There are many purelands, since every Buddha has his own pureland.

Words of Wisdom

"As long as we consider any phenomenon of Samsara as good or attractive, we create bonds which will result in taking rebirth, through the process we call the “Twelve Interdependent Links of Origination”."
- Lama Shenphen Rinpoche
