A central figure in Mahayana Buddhism, Avalokiteshvara is the Bodhisattva of Compassion, "He Who Hears the Cries of the World." A bodhisattva is one who defers enlightenment until all beings have achieved liberation. Avalokiteshvara’s many arms and multiple eyes help him to give aid in many places once in times of crisis and danger. Here Avalokiteshvara has eleven faces and one thousand arms.
