Akṣobhya is the blue Buddha who sits in the eastern quarter. The name Akṣobhya means immovable or imperturbable. His mudra is the bhūmisparśa or earth touching mudra. His emblem is the vajra, which sits balanced in his left hand; he is the head of the Vajra family.

Akṣobhya was probably the earliest of the Jinas to emerge. The Akṣobhyavyūha Sūtra describes his pureland Abhirati which translates as "delightful". Getting into Abhirati requires assiduous practice, unlike Amitabha's pureland which merely requires faith in Amitabha's vow to save all beings.
