Amitabha Looking Back Gold (Mikaeri Amida Gold) (みかえり阿弥陀(金)) (TanaCocoro) from Isumu. Isumu's focus is to recreate in our modern lives the traditional Buddhist statues which the Japanese culture has cherished so much. Click here to learn more about Isumu

  • Part of Isumu's TanaCocoro lineup
  • This statue is a replica of the original statue in Kyoto. The original statue is known for looking back its left shoulder with a deeply merciful look. In creating this replica statue, Isumu made sure that the replica accurately depicts the noble, solemn and youthful look of the original. Despite the replica being 19 centimeters in height, the details of the lotus pedestal and meticulously carved halo have been replicated completely
  • The fact that the statue is looking back represents the mercifulness of the Amitabha. According to legend, in the year 1082 on February 15th before dawn, a monk called Yokan (commonly known as Eikan) was chanting nianfo around the Amitabha, when he witnessed the statue move down from its pedestal, chanting nianfo while walking in front of him. The statue then looked back over his shoulder and told Yokan, who was standing paralyzed in surprise: “Yokan ososhi (You are slow, Yokan).” Yokan was deeply moved by the mercifulness of the Amitabha, because what the Amitabha both said and did represent the Amitabha's will to lead humans and wait for people who are late in coming to faith. Yokan prayed that the statue would remain in that form of looking back over its shoulder; Yokan’s wish was granted and since then the Amitabha has been called with the phrase “looking back,” or “mikaeri” (Japanese)
  • As the story above suggests, Yokan placed a great amount of importance in nianfo. Yokan had worked hard in his Buddhist training since he was a child, and his journey to discover how to live one’s life in such a transient and impermanent world has been nothing but arduous. Eventually, Yokan realized that by chanting nianfo while believing in the compassion of Amida (Amitabha) Nyorai, humans would be assured of being reborn in the Pure Land. Yokan chanted the nianfo sixty thousand times every day, and in three hundred occasions chanted the nianfo a million times. It is said that he believed that the more loudly one chanted the nianfo, a larger Buddha would appear
  • In Japanese Buddhism, Buddhas are called Nyorai, which expresses the highest degree of respect amongst all four ranks of the Japanese Buddhist pantheon. The titles in the other three ranks are: Bosatsu (Bodhisattva), Myoo (Wisdom King), and Ten (Deva). Nyorai means the one who has achieved full enlightenment, and although in the beginning of Buddhism, the term would have referred solely to Gautama Buddha himself, with the diversification of Buddhism the term was applied to other Buddhas who also achieved full enlightenment. This led to the advent of other Nyorais, including Amida (Amitabha) Nyorai, Yakushi Nyorai, and Dainichi Nyorai. Amitabha is a buddha in Mahayana Buddhism and the principal buddha in Pure Land Buddhism. He is said to provide salvation to people with his infinite light (wisdom) and infinite life. From one of his forty-eight vows, it was interpreted that anyone would be guided to his Pure Land if they chanted his name, which resulted in Amitabha becoming widely worshiped in Japan. The pose with the hands represents the Amitabha taking people to the Pure Land. Like the Buddha, or Gautama Buddha / Shaka, he is not wearing accessories of any kind
