This painting mirrors the power of Avalokitesvara, the embodiment of universal compassion.
Avalokitesvara is the dynamic aspect of Amitabha, one of the five dhyani Buddhas.
He is the manifestation of supreme wisdom and the benevolent expression of the heart, which alleviates all suffering by transforming the different poisons into life elixir.
It is told that thousand arms sprouted from Avalokitesvara's body in order to help wherever possible.

My painting shows a combination of the Buddhist wheel of life and the nature of compassion embodied by Avalokitesvara.
The wheel of life categorizes the different incarnations of non enlightened existence.
In the axis usually the three aspects which keep the wheel of suffering in a perpetual movement are shown.

In my painting however, we see Avalokitesvara as the lotus bearer in the center.
His mantra OM·MANI·PADME·HUM is resonating continuously in order to alleviate all aspects and causes of suffering, as shown in the traditional wheel of life.
In the background of the painting, the mantra syllables are repeated in the corresponding Braille writing, as well as in sign language.
This was my creative way to depict the endless effort of this enlightened Bodhisattva to bring happiness and true wisdom to all who are still spiritually deaf and blind.
