Our Nepali master artisan created our beautiful Aparmita statue with the jewelry and crown of a Bodhisattva. At the request of the buyer, we would be happy to adorn the crown and jewels of the statue with turquoise or red stones. At no extra charge, the skilled artisan can embellish the statue with these special decorations before delivery.
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.
Aparmita Statues 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”.

Aparmita Statue Features
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.
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.
