Sadaksari Lokeshvara is one of the well known manifestations of Avalokiteshvara. He is also known as Kharcheri, ‘the Lord of the Six Syllables’. These six syllables belong to the mantra ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’, the expression of the deepest essence of Avalokiteshvara.

In one hand Sadaksari Lokeshvara holds the akshamala (a rosary consisting of 108 beads) which serves to count the number of times the mantra is spoken; in the other hand, he holds the lotus of absolute purity. He holds the magic jewel Cintamani (a stone which fell from the stars and fulfils every wish) in front of his chest. His spiritual father, Amitabha, is seated above his head.

This image has a wonderful simplicity in contrast to some of the more detailed and complex Thangkas. The lacquer ads an aged feel which adds to the fantastic sense of history, whilst overall the picture projects an air of calm and tranquillity.
