Akshobhya is one of the five dhyani buddhas (wisdom buddhas), along with Vairocana, Amitabha, Ratnasambhava, and Amoghasiddhi. Akshobhya Buddha symbolizes the overcoming of passions such as anger and hatred towards other beings. The Akshobhya buddha originates from the blue mantra "Hum" and when he became a Buddha and reached enlightenment, he was given charge over the eastern paradise Abhirati. Sankskrit for this land translates to the joyous, so therefore, it is the land of the joyous. It is believed that those who are reborn in this realm can never fall back to lower realms of consciousness and are never to be born again. Therefore, it is said that all believers should seek to follow and fulfill the vow of Akshobhya.
