Partly Gold Plated Four Armed Chenrezig Statue
It has been NepaCrafts mission to help and support artists from different walks of life. In this journey, we found this beautiful Chenrezig statue. This partly gold plated four armed Chenrezig was made by a sculptor in Patan. With diminishing demands for statues, lowered prices for works of arts due to high competition with machine made statues, the artist was not able to sell his statues on a timely basis and had collections of over 50 statues. And on our mission to uplift the lives of artisans and to help them with sustainable income, we purchase the statue and are bring them to you.
His work is detailed. He takes caution with every step in the making of the statue ensuring that a fine work of art comes to life.
Here the two hands of the Chenrezig is folded in the posture of Namaste and the other two hands are raised close to the shoulders holding lotus and garland in an infinite loop. The crown covers the head and flows down to the neckline. Two big floral earrings are pierced in the ears which elongates down the shoulders. The Chenrezig is seated in the EK Padma or Single Lotus.
Four Arm Chenrezig or Avalokiteshwora is the Buddha of infinite compassion. The four arms signify the four immeasurable attitudes of love, compassion, equanimity and joy.
This practice develops our ability to have an open heart and love through meditation on the deity of Chenrezig. The mantra of Chenrezig is the most widely recited mantra in the world of Tibetan Buddhism and has great power for developing a good heart.
