AKSHOBHYA

Mahayana Heavenly God

Ruler of the Abhirati Paradise

He is one of the Five Wise Dhyani Buddhas.

An immovable monk, he made a vow that he would never feel anger or revulsion, so he achieved Enlightenment and became one of the five Biggies of Mystic Meditation.

He is blue, faces east and represents winter. If you need to know more, kindly consult your nearest Mandala.
