Regarding that point there was a separate topic created: Apratishtita Nirvana

(Sheng-yen: Getting the Buddha Mind, p 73)

“Don’t rashly seek the true Buddha;
True Buddha can’t be found.
Does marvelous nature and spirit
Need tempering or refinement?
Mind is this mind carefree;
This face, the face at birth."

actually, yes, Amituo is commonly use. however we also use to refer Amituofo as 无量寿, 无量光, Infinity Life, Infinity Light respectively. if you ask any chinese purelanders about 无量寿, 无量光, infinity Life, Infinity Light, they will know it's Amituofo.
