In the hands of Chenrezig he holds the precious jewel of enlightenment, which symbolizes compassion for all beings. Chenrezig is the Tibetan word for Avalokiteshvara, and is considered the heart of perfect wisdom. To understand the nature of Chenrezig is to understand how compassion can raise our conciousness to the highest potential.
Chenrezig is considered a tenth-stage Bodhisattva by Tibetan Buddhists, and he is the special patron of Tibet; ancient Tibetan kings, and in modern times The Dali Lama, are considered to be the earthly incarnations of Chenrezig. In China, Japan, and Thailand, Chenrezig is represented by the female Bodhisattva Kuan Yin.
