1000 Armed Avalokiteshvara Statues

The 1000 armed Avalokiteshvara story is closely intertwined with the incredible vow taken by Avalokiteshvara. As a result of the vow this venerable Bodhisattva has refused to accept the rewards of enlightenment. The vow was so great the pressure caused him to blow up into thousands of pieces. Indeed, it was Amitabha Buddha who created the first 1000 Armed Avalokiteshvara statues. This is because the deity was given 11 heads to see and hear the cries of the suffering beings. Additionally, he was given 1000 arms to work faster to fulfill his compassionate vow. All of our 1000 armed Avalokiteshvara statues for sale were hand crafted in Nepal using the traditional lost wax sculpting method. As a result, when you purchase a 1000 armed Avalokiteshvara statue you can rest assured that you have procured a monastic quality sculpture.
