Longevity Rituals of Aparmita Statues
Our Aparmita statue with consort has a very close affiliation with Amitabha Buddha. This is because Aparmita is the sambhogakaya embodiment of Amitabha when he is appearing as his longevity attribute. As a result, an Aparmita statue is usually the centerpiece of longevity rituals that are performed for devotees who wish for longer life.
As part of the ritual, A replica of his ambrosia vase is filled with spirits or beer and it is consecrated. Additionally, small pills that are made of buttered dough are included as part of the ritual. These pills are to be consumed with the consecrated wine during the ritual. However, for the ritual to be effective devotees must have unequivocal faith in the legitimacy of the ritual and of Amitabha’s longevity attribute. If so, the ritual can effectively prolong their lives. Click here to learn more about the longevity attribute of Amitabha Buddha.
