Avalokiteshvara ('One who hears the cries of the world') is the embodiment of infinite compassion. Long ago he vowed not to return to nirvana until all living beings had been liberated from suffering. To accomplish this, Avalokiteshvara travels to all realms of the universe offering his compassionate blessings to all beings. In his four-armed form, sitting in the full lotus posture, he represents the four immeasurable qualities of a bodhisattva: love, compassion, joy, and equanimity. Avalokiteshvara holds a lotus flower in his left hand, symbolizing the stainless wisdom that has realized the true nature of reality. Avalokiteshvara reminds us that awakening is not an escape or retreat from personal problems, but rather reaching outward and embracing the entire world with the love and compassion of our heart.
