Pure Lands in Mahayana Buddhism

Post by Presto Kensho »

In Hinduism, all the avatars, as far as I know, appeared on this planet. In Mahayana Buddhism, on the other hand, there's a whole host of celestial buddhas and bodhisattvas from distant planets.

Is there any sort of evidence for Dharma-practicing intelligent beings on distant planets who've attained buddhahood and established their own pure lands? Or is it all meant to be symbolic?
