A stunningly symmetrical silhouette. A mound of rock at His feet, the mythical wish-fulfilling mani (jewel) in the clasp of His anteriormost palms. A wide multi-tiered platform, a signature element of Buddhist temples in the Northwest. Lord Avalokiteshvara is the Bodhisattva of compassion. Resident of Mount Patala, He is said to have casually leaned over ihaloka, at a single glance of the dukkha prevailing therewhich His head split into infinitude. A work of art as fine as the idea is sacred, it comes with luxuriant engravings along the width of the aureole. The same emerges from a pedestal of gleaming lotus petals.
