From: $380.00

Avalokitesvara or Chenrezing (Sanskrit: अवलोकितेश्वर , Bengali: অবলোকিতেশ্বর, lit. “Lord who looks down”, Chinese: 觀世音) is a bodhisattva who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas. He is one of the more widely revered bodhisattvas in Mahayana Buddhism. In China and its sphere of cultural influence, Avalokitesvara is often depicted in a female form known as Kuan Yin or Quan Yin.

Depicted on this beautiful thangka painting there are several deities surrounding Chenrezig. They are (from the top left) White Tara, Buddha Amitabha and Green Tara. On the bottom Manjushri and Vajrapani.

Avalokiteśvara is the bodhisattva who has made a great vow to assist sentient beings in times of need and to postpone his own Buddhahood until he has assisted every being on Earth to achieve nirvana.
“Om Mani Padme Hum” is the mantra of Chenrezing: the syllables that evokes inner peace and embodiment of compassion.
