7 FEET-1000-armed Avalokiteshvara arrived!!

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

A few days ago, a few students and I went to Viva Home for a shopping trip. I was browsing around a few Oriental shops and came across a few nice items… In one of the shops, they had this beautiful 1000-arm Avaloketishvara (also known as Kuan Yin or Chenrezig) statue. I fell in love with Him on sight!

Today, I asked Andrew to arrange for Avalokiteshvara to be invited back. I love Avalokiteshvara… I used to do tens of thousands of His mantras when I was around 11-12 years old in Turkey Swamp, back in New Jersey and at home. I used to visualize Him at the center of the lake arising with head looking down and slowly looking up at me blazing with the brilliance of the sun, sitting on a lotus calmly and I would hold this visualization as clear as I can while I recited His mantra. I would chant Om Mani Padme Hung and “call” out to Him, reciting His mantra furiously and pray to be in communion with Him. I prayed to acquire His qualities as Avalokiteshvara always prays to be born in the lowest hells and the most horrible situations to be of benefit to the denizens of those realms. He is willing to endure the most difficult situations in order to benefit others. This quality in Avalokiteshvara touched me deeply and brought me to tears many times. I was enamoured to Him till now because of this and prayed for the same thing.

The mantra “Om Mani Padme Hung” was the first mantra I ever learnt. My maternal grandmother, Queen Dechen, taught me how to recite Avalokiteshvara’s holy mantra… I still do His mantra as part of my daily sadhana daily without missing it ever. She told me it is very important to recite this always and not to forget the mantra. I am grateful to my grandma for teaching me.

Do take a look at the pictures below…THIS FORM OF AVALOKITESHVARA is made so beautiful..?? He arrived and we escorted Him to my residence and set up and had a mini puja/prayers with a small group that had come for a meeting with me.

I am so happy to have this holy and beautiful image of 1,000 armed Avalokiteshvara made in the Chinese Buddhist style.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article of the 7ft 1000-armed Avalokiteshvara. Rejoice to Rinpoche for inviting Avalokiteshvara to your ladrang. May the people who have helped with setting up the Avalokiteshvara statue be blessed. This statue is indeed very beautiful and very detailed.

    With folded palms,
    Vivian

    Dear Rinpoche,
    some years ago, i did find the Sutra “Great Compassion Dharani Sutra” of the 1000 armed “Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva” the Sutra mentions a lot of great benefits for those how can recite the “Great Compassionate Heart Great Dharani”: Namo ratna-trayya …befor an Mandala-altar, but as a wester man grow up in a atheist-family, i don´t know how to practies or set up altars? can you dear Rinpoche reveal or ask someone to reveal how to erect the Mandala-altar mentioned in the Dharani Sutra for the benefit of your western Students?

    thank you so much for all your work
    Best Wishs

  3. Cliff on Apr 11, 2013 at 6:37 pm

    Amazing! Its so tall! Funny how Sean almost reaches the height of Avalokiteshvara haha. I really like the photo of Rinpoche and Li Kim’s three beautiful sons sitting next to Rinpoche, its really adorable and im so happy for them to receive the blessings from a living buddha side by side. It really looks like everyone had a fun time cleaning, preparing, offering and piecing together Avalokiteshvara. Cute jason trying to reach a higher spot for Avalokiteshvara’s arm haha.

    I really enjoyed reading Rinpoche’s description of how Rinpoche would “visualize Him at the center of the lake arising with head looking down and slowly looking up at me blazing with the brilliance of the sun, sitting on a lotus calmly” it was so clear and precise I could imagine it myself. Every night i still do my prayers trying to visualise Vajrayogini as instructed by Rinpoche but my mind still isn’t strong enough to have a clear precise image or i feel i get distracted a lot, i’m still trying to maintain discipline with my visualizations.

    Om mane pedme hum was too my first mantra taught to chant as often as I could from my Grandmother and Mother. We basically grew up with it and I can still remember my grandparents playing the mantra chanting on a radio every morning as they make their incense offering to Kuan Yin. I really enjoyed those memories.

    Thank Rinpoche for sharing with us a short story of your experience in first meeting Avalokiteshvara, it brought me good memories and happiness and also i learnt a short story of Avalokiteshvara which I would forever remember. Im glad to see so many happy faces inviting Avalokiteshvara into the Haven. It looks like it brought even more peace and happiness into everyone’s lives than there already is.

    I pray that Rinpoche is feeling well and happy.

      Hello, wonderful statue, I bought one that is 5 feet tall and looks different in the face but the rest is very much the same, does anyone know where they were made and when?

  4. Elsie Toy on Feb 21, 2013 at 8:28 am

    Avaloketishvara is really beautiful and I love the sigh to Avaloketishvara the many arms reaching out for us and yet some ignore and yet some could not understand how a buddha can have so many arms. I love Chenrezig cos the mantra is easy and so effective. _/|\_.

  5. Keng tan on Jan 6, 2013 at 1:23 am

    One word-AWESOME!!! I don’t know why but the first time I saw a 1000 armed Avalokiteshvara was at the Manjushri Centre in Ullverston, in the Lake District, UK. I fell in love with Him. I said I want one in my home and I am still looking.

  6. Joy on Jan 6, 2013 at 12:31 am

    Rinpoche really has a knack in picking the most exquisite items and definitely Buddha statues! Rinpoche must have felt something really divine about this Kuan Yin and truly this is a 1000 arm Kuan Yin that is one of the most spectacular I’ve ever seen. She is just so incredibly regal yet gentle, her face just glows with love and compassion. The carvings is amazing but what is most amazing is that she looks so alive!

    How fortunate we are to be able to invite her in to the Haven Ladrang and receive her divine blessings. Indeed she is a very special one.

  8. Mei Fong on Dec 20, 2012 at 4:22 pm

    Such finishing of the 1000arm Avalokiteshvara is so rare and indeed it is a sight to be behold of. The detailing of the statue is done up so well. 7ft makes it so tall and eye catching to everyone who sees the statue. Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the pictures with us.

  9. Lydia Unger on Dec 17, 2012 at 6:18 pm

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche and Team,

    how beautiful the statue of Avalokiteshvara is! Please visit our web-site and you will see that we have also s statue like this. We love Avalokiteshvar very much!!! We would like to purchase another one. May we kindly ask you to tell us where? It would be a great joy for us.

    With our very best wishes for all from the Buddha-Museum in Germany

    Much Metta

    Om Mani Padme Hum……

  11. Uncle Eddie on Oct 4, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    Kuan Yin Pusa (or Goddess of Mercy in Chinese) is the first Buddhist Bodisattva, whom I came to hear of, and got exposed to, when at a very young age. Later on, only after meeting up with Rinpoche, then only I came to learn that “Kuan Yin Pusa” is actually known as Chenrizig in Tibetan, and Avalokitesvara in India. At Penang in Keloksi Temple, the huge Kuan Yin statue stands powerful, popular and a compassionate bodhisattva to grant wishes to benefit all sentient beings! Om mani padme hung was the mantra I first learned from Rinpoche in the very early years! Thank you Rinpoche for sharing with us this holy and so beautiful image of 1,000 armed Avalokiteshavara made in Chinese Byddhist style.

  12. abby F on Sep 29, 2012 at 3:19 pm

    To me this statue is really a HUGE one and 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara is very rare to see. Since I was a kid, I always heard my father tell me about 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara and he used to play the VCD of Great Compassion Mantra, and that was the time I saw 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara. And because of this, I feel that 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara is so ‘unreal’ because He only appears in TV. LOL.

    I hope that I will be able to do my prayer and make offerings in front of Him one day. Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. 🙂

  13. Wan Wai Meng on Sep 27, 2012 at 11:49 pm

    Chenrezig compassion for all sentient beings is legendary, in one story after he has liberated all the hells, the next moment hell filled up again and Chenrezig became despondent and his head split into a thousand pieces. Then Amithabha Buddha put him back together in the form of 1000 armed Chenrezig, Chenrezig hears the wails of beings going through suffering.

  14. May Ong on Sep 25, 2012 at 11:31 pm

    Beautiful 1,000 arm Chenrezig to bless us all.

  15. tenzin llhamo on Sep 25, 2012 at 8:27 pm

    He is truly amazingly magnificently BEAUTIFUL! The iconography on the statue is so detailed. I remember when I was younger, I love to clean my altar and the ceramic Kuan Yin. I have always like Kuan Yin, no matter in what form He comes in. He is always so serene. How can one not feel the peace when looking at His beautiful face. May we be as compassionate as Him always. Thank you Rinpoche for the beautiful pictures and update.

  16. The Yen on Sep 24, 2012 at 2:14 pm

    Truly MAJESTIC, truly befitting the qualities and strength of Avalokiteshvara. I am in so love with this masterpiece.

  17. Lim Han Nee on Sep 24, 2012 at 12:25 pm

    Beautiful and regal, like a queen, and with such a look of compassion! The thousand arms outstretched and every ready to reach out to every single being who needs help, every sentient being from all six realms. Looking at you, Avalokiteshvara of a thousand arms, my heart expands with great love for you as I make a wish : may I quickly develop love and compassion without boundaries, like that you show to all beings.

  18. judy lam on Sep 24, 2012 at 12:01 am

    I love the picture of ‘Avalokiteshvara and I”. May Avalokiteshvara bless Rinpoche with long life and may all that set their sights on this beautiful statue be blessed too.

  19. Helena Chin on Sep 23, 2012 at 11:10 pm

    It is wonderful and it is our honour to prepare the flower offering to this beautiful 1000-arm Avaloketishvara. Thank you Rinpoche. He is magnificent, stunning and super gorgeous 🙂
    My mama taught me his mantra when i was very young, and it is one of the mantra i always recite until today. OM MANI PADME HUM 🙂
    Thank you for the post and the beautiful pictures.

  20. patsy on Sep 23, 2012 at 5:26 pm

    What a magnificent statue with fine craftsmanship! This Avalokeitishvara is so beautiful. So serene yet powerful! May all those who see Him be blessed by His compassionate energy.

    Rinpoche is one with 1000 arms Cherenzig. His determination to save all from suffer and the effort he has put in. Cherenzig/Guan Yin is one of the Buddhas closer to the heart of many especially Asian and Chinese, may Rinpoche’s teachings spread to every corner of the world and close to all’s heart.

  33. Sheryl KH (JB) on Sep 22, 2012 at 11:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing these step-by-step pictures of invitation process. I enjoy reading them through.

    I like especially the picture of Rinpoche taken with Avaloketishvara. Rinpoche looks very happy from the depth of your heart, it seems to me that with this statue, Rinpoche has fulfilled your wish of having Avaloketishvara close to you…kind of like fulfilling your childhood wishes.

    This Avalokestishvara is beautiful. I wish Rinpoche happiness always.

  34. So Kin Hoe on Sep 22, 2012 at 10:45 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche. I am so fortunate to see a beautiful and compassionate 1000 armed Avalokiteshvara. We are blessed through the kindness from Rinpoche and Avalokiteshvara.

  35. Yee Ling Cheah on Sep 22, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this blog. We are very blessed to see this beautiful 1,000 armed Avalokiteshvara, particularly love the picture of you sitting in front of Avalokiteshvara. How blessed everyone involved with the set up. May they and all who pray to Avalokiteshvara aspire to have the same compassionate qualities. Om mani padme hum!

  36. Vivek Karmaa Subba on Sep 22, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Sikkim has so many Rinpoches, but there is only puja and no preachings, I wish you could come over and spread your words of wisdom, and even encourage Sikkimies monks to give such “preachings” here in Sikkim. The “death meditation” video I saw in the youtube, gave me a CRYSTAL clear knowledge about one of the main principles of Buddhism… there still are so many unanswered questions… I know I will find the answers, might take some time. Great work your holiness. Thank you so very much. -Vivek Karmaa Subba, Sikkim

  37. Sean Pang on Sep 22, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    Wow, this is awesome… The statue looks so peaceful yet so powerful.

    May Kechara and all Kecharians be the same: enjoying inner peace and tirelessly reaching out to all mankind with kindness!

  38. monica on Sep 22, 2012 at 5:14 pm

    lovely, nice…so wonderful!!!!may you all enjoy many,many,many 1000s of avalokiteshvaras blessings.

  39. sweekeong on Sep 22, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    Very beautiful, Rinpoche! Thank you for sharing the photos from assembly to setup. The size of a 7 feet 1000-armed Avalokiteshvara is awesome. Just seeing this his form is a blessing, it brings peace and calms my mind. 🙂

  40. Andrew Boon on Sep 22, 2012 at 4:07 pm

    It was indeed a privilege and honour to help invite Avalokiteshvara back. He is indeed truly a sight to behold! Everyone chipped in to help wherever to could from dusting, cleaning, wiping down, setting up the offerings, carrying, installing, etc….

    How fortunate for us working in the Ladrang to be able to gaze upon The Buddha of supreme compassion’s image everyday.

  41. lewkwanleng on Sep 22, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    Seeing this Kuan Yin give such peace energy… May all who see Him be blessed!

  42. Irene Lim on Sep 22, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    1000-Arm Avalokiteshvara and I have so much affinity. I was fortunate to be at the invitation party and facilitating the statue to arrive. She is so magnificient.

  43. Pastor Susan on Sep 22, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    This Avalokiteshvara is breath taking! OMB!! And he’s 7 feet. How grand 🙂 Can’t take my eyes off the picture of Avalokiteshvara and Rinpoche. I see compassion come to life through Rinpoche and this “statue” comes to life because of Rinpoche.

  44. kailash on Sep 22, 2012 at 11:58 am

    Many Many Supplications to the Most Venerable Rinpoche,
    Chag Chal Lo.
    Your Eminence,This is the most fabulous statue of 1000 armed Avalokitesvara I have ever seen.The other one I saw was at Dharamsala,India, in the temple of His Holiness. But this statue appears to be so live and real.It seems the Diety may actually come out of this statue or the statue may communicate.
    It would be really a great thing if the actual long Dharani of Chenrezig, as it existed in sanskrit and is preserved in the Tibetan tradition, is also published in this Blog. This is a long mantra of Chenrezig (different from the regular Dharani).The Chines version / Translation, is given in the Dharani Sutra(Published by the BTTS, propounded by Zen Master,Most Ven. Hsuan Hua).However I heard that long Mantra exists in the Tibetan tradition also.It is probably also known as Nilkantha Dharani.
    Regards

  45. soonhuat on Sep 22, 2012 at 11:47 am

    Wow Rinpoche, this is very beautiful statue. I saw you mentioned in the blog that you were rushing to Viva Home, I was hoping you could find some goodie but I did not expect you found such a beautiful “goodie”. I like the statue a lot, it has very antique look.

  46. DR on Sep 22, 2012 at 11:04 am

    What an incredibly elegant statue. I am so fortunate to be invited to Rinpoche’s residence last night to witness this meritorious event. I could not help visualizing this statue in a temple by the sea and everyday thousands of people who pass by on boats can have a glimpse of this holy image and be blessed by Him.

  47. Ethan Hoo on Sep 22, 2012 at 10:31 am

    Magnificent! He’s so beautiful! What a sight to behold and have audience with this beautiful Chenrezig. So much blessing from the Buddha of Compassion.

  48. Jay Jae on Sep 22, 2012 at 8:04 am

    This is the most Magnificent 1000 arm Chenresig statue I have seen! I love the intricacy of the hands and to the detail of the halo!

    I remembered when Rinpoche went shopping for statues and saw a 1000 arm Chenresig similar to this one, Rinpoche told me that if Rinpoche had just one altar to himself, He would put this form of Chenresig as his main object of veneration and nothing else”

    Rinpoche has really deep affinity with statues and beautiful rare ones. If u think about it, Rinpoche is like this 1000 arm Chenresig, through the organization and the Ladrang, he has 1000 arms reaching out to help the needy. Through the web, Rinpoche has 1000 eyes looking for sufferings, where ever it sprouts and addresses it.

    Eating eat is actually eating a dead body if we think deeper. Since we have a choice, why choose to eat meat? The biggest animals in the world, the elephants are vegetarian, if elephants can survive on a vegetarian diet, why can’t we? Let’s be kind and stop eating meat.

    22 years ago, the Tibetan leadership CTA (Central Tibetan Administration) imposed a ban on Dorje Shugden. Whoever still wants to do the practice will be ostracised by the CTA and the Tibetan community. Dorje Shugden ban has created disharmony and caused conflict among the Tibetans. Many friends and family are separated because some want to continue to practice Dorje Shugden, some don’t want to. The ban doesn’t only affect the Tibetans, it affects all Dorje Shugden practitioners.

    Who is Vajrayogini? What do you know about her? Vajrayogini is a higher tantric practice that is very suitable for modern people. Her practice is short but powerful. Many high lamas such as Pabongka Rinpoche, Trijang Rinpoche, Zong Rinpoche are Vajrayogini practitioners. Even though untold, but after Lama Tsongkhapa passed away, it was found that he was also a strong Vajrayogini practitioner. In the past, people without the initiation to Vajrayogini practice would not be able to see her image. But Tsem Rinpoche is very kind to introduce us to Vajrayogini so we can connect to her. If we don’t have the good fortune to receive her practice in this life, hopefully, we will be able to do her practice in our future life.

    Kandy in Sri Lanka is a beautiful and balmy city popular amongst spiritual, cultural, and nature seekers. One of the most important sites in Kandy is the golden-roofed Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic (Sri Dalada Maligawa) where one can visit the most important Buddhist relic – a tooth of the Buddha. It is believed that by making offerings and prayers to the Buddha’s sacred relics, one will be blessed and protected.

    A particular place can be considered holy when at least one of the following criteria is met:

    1) Someone had engaged in intensive meditation to generate higher insight and state of mind (e.g., love, compassion, and bodhicitta) in the area and therefore infused positive energy into the place.
    2) Someone had a pure vision of a holy being (for example, a Buddha, a Mahasiddha, daka, or dakini) and/or received teachings from the holy being(s) in the area. This would have imbued the place with the energy and blessings of the holy beings and/or teachings.
    3) A place where holy beings abide or where supernatural beings engaged in virtuous activities, which blessed the place with positive energy.
    4) The place was blessed or consecrated by a highly realised being who invited the enlightened beings to reside there.

    When visiting places that have been blessed, visitors can feel a sense of peace, happiness, healing, and well-being from the positive energy of that environment. It can also leave a spiritual imprint or open up an existing positive imprint in the minds of visitors or pilgrims, which can help spur them on their spiritual path.

    On 13 September 2017, a group of 38 Kecharians from all over the world – Malaysia, Canada and Hong Kong – gathered at Beijing Airport, prepared to embark on a spiritual journey to the world famous Buddhist mountain Wu Tai Shan. It is a place close to our hearts because it is the earthly abode of Lord Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom and his emanation, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden.

    During our monthly Dorje Shugden kangso (fulfilment ritual) held in Kechara Forest Retreat, we invite Dorje Shugden from the five places where he abides to bless us. Wu Tai Shan is one of these places. Thus, we are extremely fortunate to be able to visit the abodes of Lord Manjushri and Dorje Shugden on earth with the blessings of our guru, His Eminence the 25th Tsem Rinpoche.

    Thank you for sharing this article.You have pointed it correctly that many live in denial of their wrong doing and pretend it never happened. What makes regrets more beautiful is how we learn from it .

    Simply regret does not bring us any where or improve the situation. Regret is not a punishment. Repair what we damaged. Accept our fault. Learn a lesson and never repeat that mistake.

    Thank you so much for this article. By reading this article, i get to know that Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen was the last of the Drepung Zimkhang Gongma line of incarnations. In one of his previous lifetimes as Dulzin Drakpa Gyaltsen the leading disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa, he made a firm commitment to protect Lama Tsongkhapa’s special teaching of Nagarjuna’s Middle Way view.

    It was said that he did so on the behest of the Protector Nechung who manifested as a white dove and hovered over one of Lama Tsongkhapa’s teachings. Later on Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen explained to Nechung that he did not have it in him to generate wrathful energy, which was necessary to become a Protector. Thank you.

    Thank you for this article. It is true that Dalai Lama once made a public statement that the practice of Dorje Shugden is malevolent and that it should be stopped. Why? After that resolutions and constitutions to persecute and ostracize those who do not abide by the demands of the Tibetan leadership has been done.

    Actually this article aims to give insight, with supporting evidence, to reveal the glaring suffering that is a direct consequence of the Tibetan leadership’s prohibition of Dorje Shugden’s practice which is presented without a doubt, that despite continued denials by Tibetan authorities. Thank you.

    Thank you for this article. I’m very happy to know that the latest addition of our very own Bigfoot Cafe is know here in Bentong with amazing vegetarian dining scene. It is located at Bentong town which is less than five kilometers from Kechara Forest Retreat, to spread an alternative diet of loving kindness.

    Bigfoot cafe in Bentong town promotes vegetarianism where it is a diet of compassion, primarily because animal lives need not be sacrificed to provide us with sustenance and to please our taste buds. In addition, we are kinder to ourselves by eating better and healthier. Thank you.

    Ghosts are commonly featured in Chinese folklore. Ghost stories existed as part of the old oral tradition during the Shang Dynasty (1600 – 1046 BCE) and expanded further as Chinese literature began to flourish. Ghost stories continue to be popular today, not just in China but also in the Southeast Asian region.

    Generally, the ghost is perceived to be the non-corporeal manifestation of a person who has died. According to folklore, Chinese ghosts are usually malevolent in nature, cause harm and create chaos for the living. The ancient Chinese were huge believers in ghosts as they thought that when a person died, their soul would journey across a bridge to the afterlife.

    Thank you Rinpoche and the blog team for sharing this picture. It is inspiring to see how devoted Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo to her guru. She has lived in solitary retreat for over 12 years in the mountains, and her attainments are incredible. I enjoyed reading her book very much, which is fascinating to know what happened when one lives in solitude for so long. What did they do to spend their time and what kind of problems they encounter during those years up in the mountain?

    In her book, it was mentioned that the 8th Khamtrul Rinpoche referred to her as “his nun” before. It seems that the relationship between Jetsunma and her guru has a long history which extends beyond 1 lifetime. When Jetsunma first met the young 9th Khamtrul Rinpoche, the young Rinpoche also said the same thing to her.

    Hence, the relationship between a student a teacher is much more sacred and complicated than what we can see. It was said that a spiritual teacher would be responsible for the student’s spiritual journey until enlightenment once the Samaya is established. They will meet again and again until the student achieves Buddhahood in the end.

    It is said that if we make big Buddha, we can also collect more merits. Therefore, if we can afford, we should make a big statue. Merit is important especially for a Dharma practitioner. We need merit to support our spiritual practice.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    2 yearss ago
    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
