Chenrezig (Avalokiteśvara) is the Buddha of Boundless Compassion and represents the compassionate energy of all the Buddhas.
Chenrezig has four arms and four hands. The four arms and hands signify the four immeasurables: immeasurable loving-kindness, immeasurable compassion, immeasurable joy, and immeasurable equanimity. Chenrezig, the Bodhisattva of Boundless Compassion, is the very embodiment and realization of the four immeasurables.
The inner arms, have palms joined at the heart, holding a wish fulfilling jewel. This symbolizes that in whatever way Chenrezig manifests to benefit beings, the quality of Chenrezig's mind is never separate from the all-pervasive, non-referential state of dharmakaya (primordial wisdom).
In the outer right hand, Chenrezig is holding crystal beads, this symbolizes that Chenrezig is continuously benefiting sentient beings and turning the wheel of enlightened activity. In the outer left hand, Chenrezig holds a lotus flower symbolizing the stainless nature of his awakens mind.
