This is a gorgeous large 24 K Gold Thousand Arm Avalokiteshvara Sahasrabhuja Lokeshvara Thangka Painting from Nepal. I selected this painting for its clean precise work, beautiful colors and and incredible 3D feel.
In this painting Lokeshvara is holding a cintamani, a transparent wish stone that will fulfull all non-material wishes. In his upper left hand he is holding a blue lotus; in his upper right hand, a string of 108 prayer beads. 108 is one of the holiest numbers in buddhism. In the foreground is an offering of rhinoceros horns and cruciform accessories.

By means of his immeasurable compassion and meditative muscle, Avalokiteshvara managed to empty the hells and ensure that there was potential salvation for everyone. Enthused, he reported this to his spiritual father, Amitabha, who told him to take a look behind himself. Almost instantly the underworlds began filling up again with new sinners who had not escaped from samsara. Sinking into despair, Avalokiteshvara wept so pitifully that his head burst. Amitabha attempted to assemble the pieces but did not entirely succeed. He supplemented the pieces to make nine complete faces, each with a gentle expression. Above this he placed the blue demonic head of Vajrapani that functions to ward off evil, and at the very top, for protection, his own head. Four of Sahasrabhuja’s eight main arms are identical to Shadakshari’s. His right hands are in varamudra, the gesture of granting favor, and hold the dharma chakra, the wheel of the teachings. His left hands hold a bow and arrow to symbolize keeping dangers and temptations at a distance, and a kalasha, or water jug, containing the nectar of immortality, amrita, which is a symbol of the deathlessness of nirvana. His 992 other arms are placed like an aureole around the bodhisattva. The idea of a thousand arms is comparable to that of the thousand buddhas: the more the mightier. The eye located in the palms of all the hands means that nobody escapes Avalokiteshvara’s great compassion.

It takes a long time to complete a Thangka painting. It took over three months to make this painting working several hours each day. On my last trip to Nepal this is one of the extra special paintings I brought back.
