Chenrezig, also known as Avalokiteshvara, is the bodhisattva of compassion. Meanwhile, by Buddhist tradition, Mandalas are symbolic representations of the universe as well as a visual object used by Buddhist teachers and monks to propagate the ways of enlightenment. Chenrezig being in the subject of the mandala shows the space as a dwelling place of the bodhisattva and his retinue. There are four doorways in this mandala, one in each surrounding wall that symbolizes the four immeasurable thoughts (love, compassion, joy, and equality). Each door is flanked by a pink jewel.

At the center, Chenrezig sits on a pink lotus, which does not only symbolize purity, but also the lotus family which has the power to make the impure mind pure. He is depicted with four arms, two of which are in a prayer position with a wish-granting gem in between each palm. Another hand on the left is holding a blue lotus, an utpala, which represents enlightenment. The remaining hand holds a rosary, also used to count repetitions of invoking his mantra, the Om Mani Padme Hum, said to free those who invoke it from suffering. He is clothed in the robes of a bodhisattva. The painting heavily used gold, which symbolizes the brightness brought by enlightenment. It stands out against the black backdrop the represents darkness from ignorance. On the sides of the thangka are the four dignities: Garuda (for wisdom), the Dragon (power) the Snow Lion (joy), and the Tiger (for confidence).
