Chenrezig is the Compassionate Protector of Tibet and the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Tibetan Buddhists see His Holiness the Dalai Lama as the emanation of this compassion Buddha. Chenrezig tells us that the way to end our suffering is not to run away from our difficulties but to work through them with compassion for ourselves and others and embrace all sentient beings with mercy and love.
