Private Collection

Amida Zushi

A radiant wash of gold illumines the inside of this zushi. What appears to be merely an old lacquered box when closed, reveals, when open, an infinite space of luminous consciousness. The stately golden Buddha is Amida, the Buddha of Infinite Light carved with utmost finesse; the standing serene, parallel arcs of his falling garment lending a gentle rhythm that compliments the imperturbable stability. The face is broad with full cheeks, curving lips and arching brows above softly downcast eyes. In the Jodo sect, reciting with a pure heart the words “Manu Amida Butsu,” secures entry into the Pure Land, the western paradise of Amida Buddha.

The Buddha of Infinite Life is the personification of compassion; the intermediary between Supreme Reality and mankind. He represents the Higher Self, and the esoteric meaning of rebirth into his paradise is the awakening of Bodhicitta in the human heart.
