Vairochana, Amoghsiddhi, Ratnasambhava, Amitabha, and Akhshobhya are the names of the five Dhyani Buddhas. They have received a variety of features over the years and are used in numerous ways by various individuals. However, these are the fundamental explanations of them:
Dhyani Buddha Vairochana is a representation of the concept of "rupa," or form or shape. He is seated in the middle and is depicted as being white. He is frequently seen practicing meditation on a lotus seat while imparting the Dharma (law), eradicating ignorance from the world in the process.
Green-colored Dhyani Buddha Amoghsiddhi can be seen sitting in a meditative position and displaying a fearless gesture toward the north. He is also incarnate in this form. To drive out fear, envy, and jealousy, he is wielding a double thunderbolt (vajra). He is giving the mortals strength and wisdom while also continuing to defend the world and everything that it has created. He also represents the summertime.
Ratnasambhava, the Dhyani Buddha, is depicted as being gold or yellow in color and sitting in the south. In one hand, he is bestowing gifts (Varada mudra), giving the mortal enlightenment, pride, joy, and calmness. He stands for fall and has a diamond as his emblem.
Dhyani Buddha Amitabha is seated cross-legged in a meditative position. He is positioned in the west and is colored red. He offers both the wisdom of observation and a way to define oneself. He is located in fire and has the quality of overwhelming and overcoming the mortals. The lotus is his emblem.
Dhyani Buddha Akshobhya is dressed in blue and is seated facing east in an earth-touching position. His emblem is a thunderbolt (vajra), and water is his purview. It is his responsibility to impart wisdom and information to mortals, foster humility, and lessen violence. He also represents winter.
