化土

化土
one of the 三土 three kinds of lands, or realms; it is any land or realm whose inhabitants are subject to reincarnation; any land which a Buddha is converting, or one in which is the transformed body of a Buddha. These lands are of two kinds, pure like the Tusita heaven, and vile or unclean like this world. Tiantai defines the (zh) huatu or the transformation realm of Amitābha as the Pure-land of the West, but other schools speak of (zh) huatu as the realm on which depends the (sa) nirmāṇakāya, with varying definitions.
