Our Nepali master artisan created our beautiful 8.75″ 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 coral stones. At no extra charge, the skilled artisan can embellish the statue with these special decorations before delivery.
The colors displayed by the stones have special meanings in Tibetan Buddhism. To start, the blue colored lotus is meant to represent the purity of Nirvana. This is reflected in the color turquoise because it is a combination of blue and green. Therefore, the purity of the Buddhas is represented by the color blue, while green represents their willingness to act.
In Tibetan Buddhism, Aparmita is one of the long life deities along with White Tara and Namgyalma. This means he is well known for longevity attributes. As a result, Aparmita statues are used to perform longevity rituals in the hopes of prolonging life. As part of the ritual, a replica of Aparmita’s ambrosia vase is filled with wine. The wine is then consecrated and given to devotees who partake of it. Furthermore, special pills are symbolically recreated from buttered dough and consumed with the wine.
