>Where to Look When Buying Buddha Statues
Posted by craftvatika on December 14th Wholesale Pedro Alvarez Jersey , 2015

When shopping for a Buddha statue, one of the first things you should consider is the reason behind the purchase. Before thinking to buy a statue, know exactly why you want or need one, how you intend to use it, and what the object truly means to you. Many practitioners of Buddhist teachings advice against buying, owning Wholesale Jose Urena Jersey , or keeping a Buddha statue just because it is tradition or because it is something you should do as a follower of Buddhism. Because you can't always go to Buddhist countries to source Dharmadoctrine-accurate Buddha statues, it pays knowing how to identify them so you won't be confused with similar-looking images (many Hindu deities closely resemble Buddhist statues), especially when buying them online.

Online stores that specialize in these kinds of religious images, crafts, and artifacts are excellent places to look if you want authentic and accurately designed Buddhist statues. The hand gestures or mudras depicted in these statues can help you identify their authenticity and accuracy. Tibetan traditions dictate that statues, prayer wheels Wholesale Sergio Romo Jersey , and stupas should be filled with holy substances and mantras. However, it is not uncommon that some statues are not made for filling, depending on where they were made. For instance, Thai, Japanese and Chinese statues are not usually made to be filled and are often crafted from solid stone or porcelain. To be sure that the statue you are buying can be filled, look for images that were made in Nepal or India.

If you follow traditional Tibetan Buddhism practices and would like a statue that is filled and sealed Wholesale Jorge Alfaro Jersey , ask your vendor if the statue is empty or if it already has mantras inside. Some statues may be sealed but are actually empty inside. You should also check for the same when purchasing prayer wheels. Good vendors will always tell you whether or not the images they sell are filled. The size of the statue you buy doesn't matter, although the material from which it was crafted does have special benefit when bought with the proper intent—which is to be used as a ritual object. By buying a statue made out of precious metal, you are offering the best of the best.

According to Buddhist texts, keeping an empty Buddhist statue in the home for an extended period affects the state of your energy, life, material possessions Wholesale Sandy Alcantara Jersey , health, friendships, relationships, etc. filling a statue, therefore, offers great benefits for your body Wholesale Miguel Rojas Jersey , mind, and speech. Invite a monk to fill and bless your statue, as tradition dictates.

What is the role of a Christian Pastor? Do we have a biblical job description for the same? From God's viewpoint "Every Pastor is an elder and every elder has a pastor's heart". Let's understand this biblical view more clearly.

A Pastor (Elder) Job Roles as stated in the Bible and Gospels:

-Elders lead the church [1 Tim 5:17; Titus 1:7; 1 Peter 5:1-2],

-Elders "Teach and preach the Word" [1 Timothy 3:2; 2 Timothy 4:2; Titus 1:9]

-They Protect the church from false teachers [Acts 20:17, 28-31],
They exhort and admonish the saints in sound doctrine [1 Timothy 4:13; 2 Timothy 3:13-17; Titus 1:9],
-They visit the sick and pray [James 5:14; Acts 6:4] Wholesale Martin Prado Jersey , judge doctrinal issues [Acts 15:6]. In biblical terminology, elders shepherd, oversee, lead, and care for the local church".

Conclusively, our elders and pastors are and were never two different offices. Pastor is another name of elder.

What Actually A Christian Pastor Does? Let's Clear The Misconception:

A Christian Pastor has following list of responsibilities:
A Pastor Has The Responsibility To Oversight Of The Church:
A pastor is an on guard for yourselves and for all the flock Wholesale JT Riddle Jersey , among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers.
A Pastor Has The Responsibility To Protect The Church From False Teaching:
Pastors have the God-given responsibility and authority to determine what is taught and preached and by whom, as well as his responsibility also include to forbid getting involved with false things, such as Bible studies conducted by the wrong kind of teachers, meetings in which unbiblical doctrines or practices are promoted, etc.
A Pastor Rules Over the Church:
The word translated "rule" literally means "to stand before." The idea is to lead or to attend to, with a special emphasis on being a diligent caretaker. A pastor key role also includes the responsibility to exercise church discipline and reprove those who err from the faith (Matthew 18:15-17; 1 Corinthians 5:11-13).
A Pastor Guard the Doctrine of the Church:
The teachings of the apostles were to be committed to "faithful men" who would teach others also (2 Timothy 2:2). Preserving the integrity of the gospel is on the pastor's highest callings.

Understanding the Spiritual Characteristics of the Pastor's Authority:
It Is A Ministering Authority--the authority of a shepherd: (Acts 20:28; 2 Cor. 13:10; 1 Pet. 5:2). It Is A Humble Authority--The Authority of A Steward (Mk. 10:42-45; 1 Cor. 3:9; 4:1; 12:7; Tit. 1:7; 1 Pet. 4:10; 5:3-5). It is a loving authority--the authority of a father (1 Thes. 2:7-11). It Is A Liberating Authority--The Authority To Build Up Not Hold Down.
