The Residents of the Pure Land

cropwmThe mind of the disciples, bodhisattvas, devas, and human beings in the Pure Land is clear and far-reaching. Their appearance in body and attire are not to be distinguished one from another. Only because of conformity with convention are the various names given. 

Their affect is serene and dignified; there is no one to compare with them. Their exquisite beauty in form is neither divine nor human. 

Their bodies are of emptiness; they know no limitations. Therefore, we reverently bow to the power of Oneness. 

—Larger Pure Land Sutra
