Amitayus Statue Longevity Attribute
Amitayus has a very close affiliation with Amitabha Buddha. This affiliation is because Amitayus is the sambhogakaya embodiment of Amitabha’s longevity attribute. As a result, the Amitayus Buddha statue is in fact an embodiment of Amitabha Buddha. Buddhas such as Amitabha have the ability to appear in different forms. Therefore, Amitabha has the ability to take any form necessary in order to be best received by whoever he is trying to reach, including the form of longevity.
Amitayus is highly venerated by adherents to Vajrayana Buddhist belief. As a result, Amitayus statues are central to Tibetan longevity rituals. As part of the ritual, a vessel is filled with wine and consecrated. Additionally, each participant then drinks a small portion of the wine which is believed to prolong life.
