Chenrizig (Silk Print)
This print has been kept under the altar at the Tibetan Rime Buddhist Institute for years. It was present at the Kalachakra in BodhGaya to receive the blessings from being there. It has also been present for many empowerments and blessings in our temple including the 7 Medicine Buddhas Empowerment from Khentrul Rinpoche. All the proceeds of this thangka silk print sale will go to the Land of Shambhala project.
Silk-Print approximately 55.5 cm by 38.5 cm
It comes on a paper backing which we encourage you to leave on it if you put it in a frame. If you put it inside of Brocade fabric the silk can be removed from the backing if you wish in order to steam it and remove the wrinkles.
Chenrizig (Shadakshari Lokeshvara) is one of the many forms of Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara. In this manifestation he is considered the embodiment of the six syllable mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum. Meditation on Chenrizig opens the heart to beauty and brings peace to the mind.
He is seated in the vajraparyankasana on a lotus throne. He has four hands; upper right hand holds a rosary (akshamata) a sign that he draws forth beings from phenomenal existence. His left hand holds a stem of a lotus-flower a symbol that he serves living beings but is free from attachment. The principal hands make the gesture of adoration (anjalimudra) in front of the heart and in these hands he is holding a jewel.
