"I can ‘open the eye’ by myself because I have the heart. A friend of mine tells me that I can pray sincerely (to invite the devine) or I can find a professional to do it. He tells me, if you can’t find a master or something, he’ll open the eye. Hopefully you can, by yourself.
He says that there is a chant that goes with it. I chanted three times, put the statue up in place, washed the statue with milk and perfume, put up flowers along with sixteen incense sticks, and prayed. I chanted and chanted. I told Him that I want to worship Him, that I respect Him."
