About Padmapani Lokeshwar

Bodhisattwa Padmapani is a form of Avalokiteswar popular in the Valley. Padmapani is generally seen standing at the right side of Amitabh Buddha in Sukhavati, and is depicted most often in white but sometimes in red. He holds a lotus in his left hand, while his right is held in the varadamudra of charity. Padmapani wears an antelope skin over his left shoulder, and is resplendent in the ornaments typical of a Bodhisattwa, signifying the enlightened experience. Under his crown, his air is in a topknot. Each tied hair strand depicts the enlightened ones, while the free hairs are symbolic of Padmapani's endless quest to achieve enlightenment for many eons to come.

Sometimes, Amitabh Buddha appears in Padmapani's crown instead of appearing in the sky above him. When Amitabh is not depicted in his crown, Padmapani is shown in white. At the base of the paintings sits Vajrapani, the diamond bearer and guardian of Dharma. This painting combines Tibetan and Newari style.

Note: Please note that the actual colors of the Painting may vary due to differences in monitor color depth and make. The color shown is as close as possible to the actual colors of the Painting.
