According to legend, once upon a time, Amitabha was an emperor. He renounced his throne and became a Dharmakara Bodhisattva monk. The monk practiced for five eons before attaining enlightenment and becoming a Buddha. Amitabha Buddha is the Buddha of Mercy and Wisdom. He is tied to the third skandha, the skandha of perception.
Shakyamuni is seated on a lotus in a vajra pose. Buddha represents and has always sought to release humanity from suffering. His enlightenment was the understanding of educating everyone on an awakening path through which everyone might realize the true essence of existence.
Medicine Buddha is also known as Bhaisajya or Healing Buddha. He can heal both life and death afflictions. He resides in the eastern lapislazuli realm, which is purified. He is joined by two Bodhisattvas named Suryaprabha and Candrapraha to reform and teach sentient people in that country.
