In a typical Chinese temple, the image of Sakyamuni Buddhha the
Original Teacher is often placed in worship at the Main Shrine (literally,
great hero precious hall) in the center, with that of Amitabha Buddha on
the right and that of Bhaisajyaguruvaiduryaprabhasa (hereafter the
Healing Buddha) on the left.
The Three Holy Ones of the West are such that the image of Amitabha
Buddha is positioned in the middle, with that of Avalokitesvara
Bodhisattva on his left and that of Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva
on his right—all of them instructors of cultivation and learning in
the Pureland sect.
