Amida Nyorai is the Buddha that presides over the Land of Happiness world in the west. It is preached that anyone who offers prayers to Amida Buddha can die a peaceful death to Buddhists' paradaise. Amida Nyorai vows that whoever calls his name with deep faith shall be reborn in a paradise called the Western Pure Land.
Buddhism started to proliferate into China from its thousand year roots in India, were it was incubated for several centuries before expanding out into neighboring Japan, Korea and then the rest of South East Asia. And was practiced in the royal courts of six Dynasties, before it began to proliferate into the Chinese village population.
