Loving Eyes

Skr. Avalokiteshvara
Tib Chenrezig

The Buddha of compassion and unprejudiced love. He is a white sitting form with four arms. In his upper right arm he holds a crystal mala, which symbolizes that he is constantly working on freeing all beings from the conditioned world. His lower hands are holding the jewel of enlightenment on his heart level. His upper left hand holds a lotus flower symbolizing the complete purity of his motivation. His eyes see all sentient beings. Meditating on him brings forth the perfect compassion inherent in everyone. Buddhahood cannot be reached without this noble quality.
