This Buddha has four arms representing amongst all of the several dozen different iconographic forms of Avalokiteshvara the four armed form of the deity, Chaturbhuja, is the most commonly depicted. Chatur + bhuja are the two Sanskrit words that mean 'four + arms.' The Four-armed Avalokiteshvara is also sometimes referred to as Shadakshari which are the two Sanskrit words shad + akshari - meaning six syllables. This refers to the most common and well known mantra of Avalokteshvara -Om mani padme hum.

The two middle words of the mantra 'mani padme' are what is unique to the deity Avalokiteshvara and means 'jeweled lotus' referring as an epithet to Avalokiteshvara.
"To the Lord unstained by faults, white (silver) in colour, the head adorned with the perfect buddha, gazing on beings with eyes of compassion; to Avalokiteshvara I bow." (Attributed to the Tibetan King Songtsen Gampo, 557-649).

This Buddha is a 3.0x2.5cm Imported Indian Silver Pendant.
