    DEITY STATUE CONSECRATION
 

After completing the filling of the lotus bases of the 108 Medicine Buddha statues for the Gompa Shrine, LEW began to receive requests from students to fill and consecrate their newly purchased statues. Thus began the Deity Statue Consecration project, where we assist others who have new statues. 

Newly purchased statues of a diety have an empty space in the lotus. The lotus space should be filled at the base with the correct mantras and precious substances appropriate for the deity. When it has been filled, it is then consecrated by a Lama.    You can contact the center at friends@landofenlightenedwisdom.org to make a request.
