Amitabha, Buddha (Tibetan: o pa me, sang gye. English: the Enlightened One of Immeasurable Light) seated in the pureland of Sukhavati. At the top center above the draped canopy are the Five Transcendent Buddhas. Standing at the sides of the throne are the 16 Great Bodhisattvas. Various buddhas, bodhisattvas and offering figures fill the landscape. The painting is executed in the Guge style of Western Tibet.
