    Description

    The figure of Aparmita or Amitayus bestower of Longevity. Aparmita is a form of the Lord Busddha and in this character, He is known as the bestower of longevity. Aparmita is richly clad and wears the thirteen special ornaments. His hair is painted blue and falls on either side to his elbows. He is seated like a Buddha and his hands lie on his lap in Dhyana Mudra holding the ambrosia vase, which is his special emblem. The vase is richly decorated and from the cover fall four strings of beats which represent sacred pills. He is invoked for long life, health and happiness. For obtaining long life the lamaist ceremony is held. This ceremony is a curious mixture of Buddhism and demon-worship. Pills made from buttered dough and the ambrosia brewed from spirit or beer and offered in a skull bowl to Aparmita. The lama then places a vajra on the ambrosia vase, which the image of Aparmita holds in his lap, and applies a cord, which is attached to the vajra, to his own heart. The wine in the ambrosia vase is then consecrated and the people partake of it as well as of the sacred pills with the firm conviction that their lives will be prolonged through their faith in Aparmita.
