About the Art

Arya Avalokitesvara is the bodhisattva of compassion, here seated in paryankasana, with one foot resting on the opposite thigh. His right hand is raised in abhayamudra whereas left hand is hanging over the knee. He is adorned with long hair and crown, heavenly clothing and rich adornments of earrings, necklaces, bracelets and anklets.

बोधिसत्व

बोधिसत्वको अर्थ प्रबुद्ध भावुक प्राणी हो। उहाँ सबैभन्दा अनुकम्पापूर्ण व्यक्ति हुनुहुन्छ, जसले पुन: जन्म लिनुहुन्छ र फेरि साम्यक सम्बुद्ध बन्नुहुन्छ। बोधिसत्व स्वेच्छाले निर्वाणमा प्रवेश गर्न रोक्छ र अनगन्ती पुनर्जन्महरू लिदै गर्छ।
