Custom Framed Chenrezig On Lotus From Bhutan For Sale
You are offerding on a custom framed, handpainted Chenrezig that was created in Bhutan by Tibetian monks. The framing alone was over $600 - custom mounted as to not harm the thanka, gold inlay surrounding the image and a golden wooden frame. The piece is stunning and has been with me for decade or more. It measures about 27.5 inches by 27.5 inches. The pictures really don't do this piece justice. It has UV Anti-glare glass on it with a custom frame. I can send more pics if you are interested.
the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon of enlightened beings, Chenrezig, Avalokiteshvara,
is renowned as the embodiment of the compassion of all the Buddhas,
the Bodhisattva of Compassion.
is considered the patron bodhisattva of Tibet, and his meditation
practiced in all the great lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. The beloved
king Songtsen Gampo was believed to be an emanation of Avalokiteshvara,
and some of the most respected meditation masters (lamas), like the
Dalai Lamas and Karmapas who are considered living Buddhas, are
believed to be emanations of Avalokiteshvara.
About this piece - Chenrezig on a Lotus:
sits on a lotus and the flat disc of the moon, with another moon disk
behind him, reflecting his total purity. Two of his four arms are joined
in the prayer position holding the wish fulfilling gem. In his other
left hand he holds a lotus flower and in his other right hand, a crystal
mala (rosary), which he is using to count the repetitions of his mantra,
Om Mani Padme Hum, Hail to the Jewel in the Lotus,
which liberates all beings from suffering. He wears the silks and ornaments
of a Bodhisattva, representing all his special qualities, and the soft
skin of an antelope over his shoulder, symbolizing his complete freedom
from violence. He smiles with deep understanding, love and compassion
as his eyes look upon all beings.
four arms and hands signify the four immeasurables: immeasurable
loving kindness, immeasurable compassion, immeasurable joy, and immeasurable
equanimity. Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Boundless Compassion,
is the very embodiment and realization of the four immeasurables. The
four immeasurables are the vehicles through which Chenrezig benefits
first two, the inner arms, have palms joined at the heart, holding
sky-blue, wish fulfilling jewel." (**)This
symbolizes that in whatever way Chenrezig manifests to benefit beings,
the quality of Chenrezig's
is never separate from the all pervasive primordial wisdom.
the outer right hand, Chenrezig is holding crystal beads and moving
them the way we use a mala to count mantras. This symbolizes that
is not one moment when Chenrezig does not benefit beings. Like the
steady movement of counting the beads, Chenrezig is continuously
sentient beings and turning the wheel of enlightened activity.
the outer left hand, Chenrezig holds a lotus flower. This symbolizes
that in benefiting sentient beings, Chenrezig manifests in whatever
forms are necessary in accordance with the mental capacities, circumstances,
and aptitudes of sentient beings. Chenrezig may appear in any of the
different realms, such as the hell realm or the hungry ghost realm.
