The Buddhist term, 無量寿 (muryōju) amitāyus, is explained as “a being with immeasurable life”, and refers to Amitābha. This word is treated with special care in Pure Land Buddhism (Jōdo Shū) and True Pure Land Buddhism (Jōdo Shinshū) which adore Amitābha as their principal Buddha. And the many believers display a framed work with the words “Amitāyus” in the space above the Buddhist altar.
This is a work full of Buddhist virtues written by the modern calligrapher, Nakasaka Kōun, with beautiful strokes and then mounted on a hanging scroll. His mature brushwork has an air of dignity and elegance. It is as if the vast and boundless light of Amitābha is illuminating the faithful all around.
