Why are five Buddhas honored in the main shrine?

The five Buddhas represent the five corners of the universe in space and time. Starting from the east (far left) is Aksobhya Buddha - humility, unmoved by anger; the south (second left) is Ratnasambhava Buddha - equanimity, values and merits; the centre is Vairocana Buddha (the Dharma name for Shakyamuni Buddha) - Dharma preaching, our teacher; the west (second right) is Amitabha - purity and longevity; the north (far right) is Amoghasiddhi Buddha - accomplishment by wisdom. These five Buddhas also stand for the systemic transformation of consciousnesses into perfect wisdom as described in Yogacara. We must, however, bear in mind that all Buddhas are equal and their differentiations are only for our benefit and because of our deluded mind.
