The ghau is a kind of transportable altar in which the image of the chosen deity of the possessor is kept, wrapped in silk garments. The vast majority of Tibetans use the ghau at home and carry it during their travels. They keep it on a real altar at home. During travels, it is hung on the back belt. It serves as a protective symbol during travels and also allows its owner to prove his devotion to his deity.

AMITABHA BUDDHA
Amitabha Buddha is the protector of people born under the sign of the dog and the pig.
Amitābha, Amitāyus or Amida is a Buddha of Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism. He reigns in the "Pure Western Land of Beatitude" (sk.: Sukhāvatī, ch.: Xīfāng jílè shìjiè, ja.: saihō goraku sekai 西方極樂世界), a wonderful, pure, perfect world, devoid of evil, suffering. This pure land, a place of refuge outside the cycle of transmigrations – or the equivalent of nirvāņa according to some conceptions – is at the center of the beliefs and practices of the pure land schools. This Buddha, also called the Buddha of buddhas, is very popular among Mahāyānists, especially in the Chinese world, Korea, Japan, Tibet and Vietnam.

His name means "Infinite Light" or "He whose splendor is immeasurable".
Anyone who believes in this Buddha is guaranteed to enter Sukhavati, where he will be reborn. Amitâbha is therefore a kind of savior who guarantees an afterlife: everyone can achieve liberation by invoking his name, rather than having to undergo countless rebirths.

In an earlier existence, Amitâbha was a king who, after being in contact with Buddhist teaching, gave up his throne to become the Dharmakara monk. Dharmakara made 48 vows, by which he promised to help those who would follow the path to enlightenment. Through meditation, the monk finally managed to fulfill his vows and became the Buddha Amitâbha.

Having fire as its element, it is associated with twilight and life in the afterlife. It is usually depicted in red, sitting on a lotus flower, or sometimes traveling on the back of a pair of peacocks. His hands make the mudra of meditation, one hand simply resting on the other, his emblem is the lotus, the symbol of spiritual rebirth, and he is associated with the direction of the west.

Although he was originally from India, it was in China and Japan, where he bears the name of Amida (the Buddha who inspired the "Pure Land" school of Buddhism), that Amitâbha was the object of the greatest veneration. In the eighth century, the Indian monk Padmasambhava introduced the cult of Amitâbha to Tibet, where he attracted many disciples.
