Shadakshari Lokeshvara is one of the forms of Avalokiteshvara, the patron boddhisattva of Tibet. He is believed to be the embodiment of the mystic Buddhist mantra of the six syllables  Om Mani Padme Hum, the expression of the deepest essence of Avalokiteshvara.

Shadakshari Lokeshvara is mostly depicted as seated in diamond position on a moon disk on a lotus in his paradise. The complexion of the bodhisattva is white. Shadakshari Lokeshvara has a smiling expression as he is filled with compassion for all beings. His two eyes look down with tranquility, as he feels equal compassion for all. Shadakshari Lokeshvara has four arms. His central hands are held in front of his heart, holding the magic wish-granting gem Cintamani, which stands for the spirit of enlightenment that consists of love and wisdom. His right hand holds a rosary, a sign that he draws forth beings from phenomenal existence. His left hand holds a lotus flower, a sign that he serves living beings but is free from attachment. An antelope skin is over his left shoulder, with the antelope’s head on his left breast, which symbolizes his compassion. Shadakshari Lokeshvara is extremely richly dressed, which indicates that while pure he has not abandoned material things.
