Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, Chenrezig Statue Handmade in Nepal
Intricately handcrafted in our workshop, the traditional four-armed Chenrezig statue is full of unique Himalayan artistry. Also known as Avalokitesvara, the bodhisattva is depicted seated atop a moon disc lotus seat, bearing four arms. The first pair are brought together in front of the chest to form the 'Namaskara Mudra,' a gesture of greeting, prayer, and adoration while the second pair each holds an item like the crystal rosary on his left and an Utpala flower on the right. The crystal rosary, or mala, is an item used in Buddhism to recite mantras, and the utpala represents purity, enlightenment, and the triumph of spirit over adversity.
We guarantee that the statue was made using only the best materials and will last a very long time. The ideal Buddhist shrine addition can be a meditative accompaniment for yourself or any devotee.

Chenrezig epitomizes the bodhisattva's determination to delay attaining Buddhahood until he has assisted every sentient being on Earth in achieving freedom from pain and the cycle of death and rebirth. His name has been translated as "the lord who observes in all directions." The practice of Chenrezig/Avalokiteshvara is encouraged to develop a calm and compassionate heart. Compassion is the root foundation for excelling in the Buddhist path. He listens to the prayers of all sentient beings in times of challenge and difficulty.
