Introduction to the Sutra of Infinite Life

The next course of study I will discuss about is the Sutra of Infinite Life.

First of all, what is it, and what does it say?

The Sutra of Infinite Life is the central sutra in Pure Land Buddhism. In it, it talks about the story of Dharmakara, and how he came to be known as Amida Buddha.

The sutra also describes the Pure Land and how we can enter into it.

In order to understand the Sutra of Infinite Life, I recommend watching the following Youtube videos to see a visual representation of it in action:
