Chenrezig is known as Arya-Avalokiteshvara, which means “The Noble One who watches the Cries of the World.”

Chenrezig is considered the Bodhisattva (an enlightened being who has sworn to help all other beings attain enlightenment before becoming a Buddha) of Mercy and Compassion. Although predominantly male in Indian and Tibetan iconography, Avalokiteshvara can appear in any form. Thirty-three forms are listed in the Lotus Sutra.

Many of these forms are feminine, and it is mainly in feminine form that this deity is known in Southeast and East Asia, the name varying from Kum-yam to Guan-yin to Kuan-yin to Kannon.

Chenrezig is also invoked for healing, often for, but not limited to, problems of a spiritual nature. Historically, it has been thought useful to meditate on one’s image and chant one’s mantra with the desire to alleviate suffering and attain enlightenment. It is believed that Dr. Mikao Usui, the originator of Reiki in its modern form, may have meditated on the Kannon sutra (Chapter 25 of the Lotus Sutra) as part of his efforts to tap into the healing energies of the Buddha.

Chenrezig is an enlightened being with objective compassion for all living beings. It also protects living beings from physical and mental illness and other dangers and obstacles. Chenrezig helps them eradicate the three poisons-attachment, hatred and ignorance-that are the source of all illness and danger. He is the “Buddha Doctor.”

This energy brings you healing, protection, compassion, reduced suffering, honesty, truth, wisdom and love.
