The most prominent feature of our Aparmita statue is the ambrosia vessel which holds his longevity nectar. Additionally, Aparmita wears the crown and jewels of a Bodhisattva. Also, above the crown is featured the ushnisha top knot that is associated with royalty in ancient India. The third eye between the brows indicates that Aparmita has achieved the state of perfected wisdom and he has the ability to see into a divine world. Upon request, we will adorn the crown and jewels of the statue with turquoise and coral stones at no extra cost.
Furthermore, Aparmita sits in full lotus pose. This is also known as the “Vajra” pose. Vajra is a Sanskrit word that translates as diamond or lightening bolt in English. It is a symbol of indestructible virtue. Additionally, the earrings he is wearing also feature the Vajra symbol. Our Aparmita statue would make an inspirational addition to your home or meditation center.
Aparmita Statue used for Longevity Rituals
An Aparmita statue is used as the center point of Tibetan longevity rituals. This is because Aparmita is an embodiment of the longevity attribute of Amitabha Buddha. Buddhas and high level bodhisattvas have the ability to take any form necessary in order to ease the suffering of sentient life. As a result, Amitabha can choose to appear as Aparmita and grant long life to devotees. To grant longevity, Amitabha uses a special tool called “Sambhogakaya”.
