Authentic Rare 17.5" Avalokiteshvara (Lokeshwor) - Handmade in Nepal.
Material:Metal, semi precious stones
Use:Art & Collectible
Avalokiteshvara (Lokeshwor) is the bodhisattva who hears the cries of the world and embodies the compassion of the buddhas. When we see and hear the suffering of others and respond to that suffering, we are the heads and arms of the bodhisattva. The bodhisattva has more heads and arms than anyone can count! The compassion of the bodhisattvas does not depend on a creed or belief system. It manifests in the sincere, unselfish and unconditional response to suffering, not in the beliefs and objectives of the giver and receiver of help.
In Buddhist legend, the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara vowed to liberate all sentient beings from suffering but when he realized the magnitude of his task, his head exploded into countless pieces. His body was then re-assembled by the Buddha Amitabha and the Bodhisattva Vajrapani (also known as the wielder of the thunderbolt) into this omniscient form of Avalokiteshvara, with eleven heads and a thousand arms. Each of Avalokiteshvara's hands displays an all-seeing eye, symbolizing the union of wisdom and skillful means. The first two hands hold a wish-fulfilling gem, a symbol of the deepest powers of the human psyche. The next five hold a lotus, a bow, a vase, a buddhist rosary (malas), and a wheel. The eighth hand (lower right) is in the varada mudra also known as the gesture of generosity and charity.
Avalokiteshvara's multiple tiers of heads are crowned by the fierce face of Vajrapani and at the very top the face of Amitabha, symbols
