Amitayus or Tsepakme is The Buddha of Boundless Life, a sambhogakaya aspect of Amitabha, particularly associated with longevity. He is mostly depicted sitting and holding in his hands a vessel containing the nectar of immortality. Amitayus is also one of the three deities of long life. His mantra is OM AMI DEWA HRI.
According to Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche, long-life practices bring together two methods, common and uncommon. He advises, "We achieve longevity as the ordinary accomplishment, but in the process, we also achieve the supreme accomplishment. In the best case, we achieve the rainbow body. If not, then by living for eighty or ninety years, we become a good practitioner whose realisation is as vast as space, and who is able to work for his or her own and others’ benefit. Every one of us needs to do long-life practice. And we need to do a practice that combines common and uncommon methods."
