In Tibet and Nepal, Amitabha was never as popular as a savior figure as in East Asia. Still, he is revered as one of the five "self-born" buddhas (Dhyani-buddhas) who have existed eternally. According to this belief, he presented himself as the historical Buddha Gotama and the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara.
