Amitabha Buddha (Tibetan: san gye o pame, English: the Buddha of Boundless Light). Amitabha is also one of the five dhyani buddhas, embodiment of discriminating wisdom.
The victorious one Amitabha is the expression, in enlightened form, of discerning timeless awareness, which is the totally pure state of desire and attachment. Since he is the ground for the emanation of countless buddhas and bodhisattvas, he is the most sublime guides among guides for ordinary beings in samsara, due to his unsurpassable compassion and enlightened activity-liberating beings from the sufferings of lower states of rebirth with limitless emanations, leading them to Sukhavati, the Realm of Bliss, and so forth.
Amitabha Buddha is also a Buddha who bless people born in Dog Year or Pig Year which is called by Chinese. If you were born in 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982 and 1994, you were born in Dog Year. If you were born in 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983 and 1995, you were born in Pig Year.
