Oxidized Copper 10.25″ Amitabha Buddha Statue (24k Gold Gilded)
Amitabha Buddha is highly venerated in Mahayana and also Tibetan Buddhism. However, in Tibet he is highly affiliated with his Sambhogakaya embodiment known as Aparmita. Aparmita represents the longevity attribute of Amitabha and they are one in the same. Additionally, Amitabha Buddha is known as the “Buddha of Infinite Light” because of the infinite lifetimes he spent as a Bodhisattva known as Dharmakara. Amitabha Buddha is also high respected in Tibet due to his close affiliation with Chenrezig (Avalokitesvara). As a result, our Nepali artisan is highly skilled at sculpting each Amitabha Buddha statue in the Tibetan style.
For many centuries, Nepal has been the preferred source of the Tibetan monasteries for all of their Buddha statues, thangkas and ritual items. Therefore, when you purchase our Amitabha Buddha statue you can rest assured that you have procured a monastic quality sculpture. All of our Amitabha Buddha statues are on sale now with free international shipping.
