The color turquoise is a special combination of blue and green. Indeed, blue signifies the purity of the Buddhas and green symbolizes their readiness to act. Additionally, devotees meditating on the color red can transform anger into wisdom. The color red is often worn by other deities to pay tribute to Amitabha Buddha. This Aparmita statue will wear the adornments very well and they will inspire all those who lay their eyes on your new statue.
Use Aparmita Statues for Long Life
Aparmita statues are an important component in longevity rituals which are performed in the hopes of prolonging life. During the rituals a replica of his ambrosia vase is filled with wine. After the wine is consecrated it is given to devotees who partake of it. Additionally, there are pills which are symbolically recreated from buttered dough. These pills are consumed with the wine in hopes of benefiting from Aparmita’s powers of longevity.
Origins of Aparmita Statues
The origin of all Aparmita statues is Amitabha Buddha, in fact they can be considered one in the same. Amitabha assumes the form of Aparmita by using an embodiment called “sambhogakaya”. Sambhogakaya is a tool that is available for Buddhas and high level Bodhisattvas to reach sentient beings. As such Aparmita is the embodiment that Amitabha has chosen for longevity.
