Importance of filling a statue

Postby Kunzang8 » Tue Jul 16, 2013 3:40 am

Hi

Can anyone please tell me about the importance about having statues filled? I have a friend who has an entire shrine of Tibetan style statues that are not filled. Is this okay? Thanks.

All these things in the mundane material world are only symbols.
The importance of these symbols depends on the persons who deals with it. What does a filled or a not filled statue denote for your friend?
Because, if our mothers, who have been kind to us
From beginningless time, are suffering,
What can we do with (just) our own happiness?
