Revered alike in the Mahayana, Theravada, and Vajrayana traditions, Lord Avalokiteshvara is the finest of the divine Bodhisattvas. He watches over His devotees, is torn asunder with compassion for their suffering, and recuperates by His resolve to be of service to them. Note the half-shut eyes beneath the albatross brow, the long nose, and the pursed lips, set in that handsomely sculpted face. The unmistakable composure of awareness and solicitude marks His countenance.
