Shadakshari Lokeshvara, the large central figure in this thangka , is an important manifestation of the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara, who is of special significance to the Tibetans; the Dalai Lamas are said to be incarnations of this form of the bodhisattva.

Shadakshari means six syllabled, the six syllables are om ma ni pad me hum and constitute the famous mantra of this bodhisattva that is constantly chanted by devout Tibetans. The mantra is considered so efficacious that it has been carved on numerous rock faces throughout Tibet. Here the syllables making up this mantra can be seen emanating from the heart of Lokeshvara himself, and rising up to finally dominate the upper panel of the painting.

Although bejeweled and crowned, the bodhisattva is represented as a perfectly poised yogi seated with his legs closely locked in the lotus posture. His eyes are downcast, as if in meditation.

He has four hands. The principal hands are raised to the chest with the palms enjoined in namaskarmudra, the gesture of prayer or greeting, and hold a wish-fulfilling gem. The upper right hand displays the rosary, while the corresponding left hand holds the lotus, the distinctive emblem of this bodhisattva.

A beautifully proportioned figure, the facial features, as well as the fingers, are delicately rendered.

A Short Note on the Significance of Om Mani Padme Hum:

The explanation of the six-syllable mantra, OM MA NI PAD ME HUM is as follows:

OM closes the door to the suffering of being reborn in the god's realm. The suffering of the gods arise from foreseeing one's fall from the god's realm. This suffering comes from pride.

MA closes the door to the suffering of being reborn in the warring gods' (asuras') realm. The suffering of these asuras is constant fighting. This suffering comes from jealousy.

NI closes the door to the suffering of being reborn in the human realm. The suffering of humans is birth, sickness, old age, and death. This suffering comes from desire.

PAD closes the door to the suffering of being reborn in the animal realm. The suffering of animals is stupidity, preying upon one another, being killed by men for meat, skins, etc., and being beasts of burden. This suffering comes from ignorance.

ME closes the door to the suffering of being reborn in the hungry ghosts' realm. The suffering of hungry ghosts is hunger and thirst. This suffering comes from greed.

HUM closes the door to the suffering of being reborn in the hell realm. the suffering of the hells is heat and cold. This suffering comes from anger or hatred.
