There is a distinction and an order to being a bodhisattva. As a testimony to the preeminence of Lord Avalokiteshvara, He belongs to the heaven of the Amitabha Buddha and, together with Lord Mahasthamaprapta, graces a throne as resplendent as the Buddha’s. The majestic Bodhisattva is the beloved of His devotees because He has vowed to deliver each of them to the land of nirvana and pure happiness, without exception; this is the quintessence of the bodhisattva.
The thangka you see on this page is the Sadakshari Lokeshvara roopa (form/manifestation) of the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara. Having emerged from a pristine light from within the Buddha Amitabha, the Sadakshari Lokeshvara is four-armed, the anterior pair of which is in anjali mudra (gesture of adoration). He sits in the lap of the ivory-silver moon, His long fair limbs gathered in the perfect padmasana. A leafy vine of blue lotuses floats about Him, one of which He holds in His left posterior hand.
The face of the Bodhisattva is a highly characteristic image in the thangka tradition. As fair as the clouds of the Buddhist heaven, drawn in perfect symmetry. Half-shut eyes that are brimming with compassion, the all-pervading Buddhist value. Lengthened earlobes from which dangle gold kundalas, and a five-spired crown sitting on the long black straight hair. Note the soothing element of the pastel-coloured halo of the Bodhisattva.
