In the Mahayana Buddhist tradition, a Buddha has believed to have three bodies: a form body (nirmanakaya), an apparitional body (sambhogakaya), and an ultimate truth body (sambhogakaya) (dharmakaya). In Tibetan Buddhist culture, an image of Amitayus is frequently commissioned for the sake of a practitioner's long life.
