The Pensive Lord Chenrezig Brass StatueMay 27, 2022 ⚊ 1 Min read ⚊ Views 87 ⚊ NEWS
The Tibetan deity Chenrezig is the most untiring of the Bodhisattvas. With His thousand arms and thousand heads, He strives until space and time remain to free those of us in ihaloka (current realm of existence) of existential perpetuation and suffering. In this superb sculpture of the Lord Chenrezig, He is depicted in a rudimentary bhadrasana. The plenitude of limb and head is invisible to us mandadhikaris (low-rung devotees). Note the angulature of His long torso and the suppleness of His limbs: with such a lifelike stance, the form of the Lord irreversibly draws in the devotee.
