Term Definition

(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

"What is born will die, what has been gathered will be dispersed, what has been accumulated will be exhausted, what has been built up will collapse, and what has been high will be brought low."
