Our Nepali master artisan created our beautiful Amitabha Buddha 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, we 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 the poison of attachment into the wisdom of discernment. The color red is often worn by other deities to pay tribute to Amitabha Buddha. This Amitabha statue will wear the adornments very well and they will inspire all those who lay their eyes on your new statue.
Pure Land Crowned Amitabha Buddha Statues
The Pure Land celestial heaven named Sukhavati is the home of Amitabha. However, Amitabha Buddha had his sentient origins as a Prince who renounced his kingdom. After he disavowed attachment to earthly comforts, he was eventually reborn as a Bodhisattva named Dharmakara. As a result, he accumulated infinite merit in his countless Bodhisattva lifetimes.
Sukhavati is a pure land which is built on this foundation of merit and infinite light. Furthermore, the light that shines forth from Sukhavati has the power to remove defilements and temptation from sentient beings. The light that shines forth from this heaven is so powerful that Amitabha is known as the Buddha of “immeasurable light and life”. Our Amitabha Buddha Statue can be used as an inspirational tool to strive for a divine rebirth. Click here to learn more about Amitabha Buddha.
Pure Land Amitabha Buddha Statue
Our Amitabha Buddha statues represent one of the five Dhyani Buddhas in Pure Land Buddhism. In Pure Land Buddhist beliefs, Amitabha is the Dhyani Buddha who represents compassion and wisdom. Although all of the Dhyani Buddhas have their own pure lands, devotees hold Sukhavati in highest esteem. Additionally, once sentient beings are reborn into Sukhavati they will be accompanied by Bodhisattvas and they are assured of achieving enlightenment.
Amitabha has promised that those who recite his mantra will come to Sukhavati – “om a-mi-ta-bha hrih”. Our Amitabha Buddha Statue can be a focal point of inspiration for adherents to all of the Buddhist schools. All of our Buddha statues were crafted by the most renown metal caste families in the world. For many centuries the caste metal artisans of Patan have created monastic quality statues.
“Om Amitabha Hrih”
