Four-Armed Chenrezig Practice

 

“Chenrezig” (Avalokitesvara in Sanskrit) is the Tibetan name for the embodiment of pure enlightened compassion.

 

This Buddha has a pure white body. We all know the Chenrezig mantra OM MANI PADME HUM, which is said to contain all of the Buddha's teachings in compressed form.

 

Mindful recitation of this mantra has the power to purify our mind's obscurations. We develop the enlightened quality of compassion through Chenrezig practice and mantra recitation, as well as by compassionate conduct towards all beings.

 

To perform this practice perfectly, we read through the sadhana, which includes prayers and specific instructions.
