apramāṇaśubha (T. tshad med dge; C. wuliangjing tian 無量淨天) is translated as "limitless virtue," "immeasurable purity," etc.[1][2] Lit. “Immeasurable Virtue.”[2]

Apramāṇaśubha is one of the deva realms of the rupadhatu, and also the name of the devas living there. Within the rupadhatu, this is second of the three deva realms of the third dhyana.[2] Rebirth in this realm is the karmic result of accomplishing the third meditative absorption.[2]
