“Amitabha Buddha” is Sanskrit. Amitabha means “infinite” and Buddha means “awakening.” This name therefore conveys the meaning of infinite enlightenment. “Infinite” describes that which is innate in the true nature: infinite wisdom, infinite virtues and abilities, and infinite auspicious marks. These three categories of “infiniteness” cover all the infinities in the whole universe. Amitabha Buddha is a name of the true nature.
