With Dharmachkra as the backdrop, in the center stands the archangel of
compassion in Mahayana Buddhism - Avalokiteshvara.
Known to be one of the most powerful bodhisattvas, he joins his hand to the
heart chakra holding the mystical wish-fulfilling gem while in other hands he
holds the Dharmachakra, Japamala, Lotus, Bow and Arrow, and the vessel of
Exilir. His numerous other hands forming an impression of the halo are in the
Varada mudra of blessing, where the eyes on each of his palms represent
omnipresence. His elongated head, with 10 faces symbolize enlightenment through
multidimensionality. On top are the five Tathagata Buddhas painted in the
colors of their unique wisdom and both the bottom corners of this stunning Thangka Mural are
occupied by Manjushri and Mahakala respectively.
