Chenrezig Bodhisattva Statue Features
Our Chenrezig statue is featured with 4 arms and he wears the crown and jewels of a bodhisattva. In his upper left hand he holds the stem of the lotus flower between his index finger and thumb. In Buddhism, the lotus flower is a symbol of enlightenment. As the flower rises out of the murky water to blossom in the fresh air and sunshine, so does a devotee who has passed through the sea of suffering to become enlightened.
Chenrezig sits in double lotus pose on a double lotus pedestal. The rich and lustrous oxidized copper mixes well with the fine details of the statue. An additional attribute of the Chenrezig statue is the cintamani jewel between his pressed hands. Chenrezig’s devotees believe that the cintamani will grant them whatever they wish for.
