The Amitayurdhyana Sutra (Skt. Amitāyurdhyāna-Sūtra), or Sutra of Contemplation on Buddha Amitayus, describes the Pure Land of Amitayus/Amitabha Buddha, Sukhavati, and gives a method of contemplation on the details of the Pure Land in thirteen stages, then continues with a further three meditations, each of which refers to three types of birth in the Pure Land.
