Avalokitesvara

13 (_CAV3476.jpg)
Bodhisattva - Avalokitesvara

Buddha panels appear over the pillared entrances of the cells at either end of the main porch. The right one has a number of carvings. In the inner chamber, is a figure of Avalokitesvara (seen here), seated in the position of ease, making the gesture of offering in his proper right hand, and holding an expanded lotus in the other.

Flanking the left cell doorway of the smaller shrine on the right side of the main porch is Mahamayuri seated on her peacock (seen here), holding a feather in her hand. She is paired with Bhrkuti, four-armed, on the right.

1 of 25>>Seated Buddha

The main hall, with its impressive colonnade, is focused upon a huge teaching Buddha, seated in the bhadrasana pose on a lion throne. The main image is flanked by standing attendant bodhisattvas: Avalokitesvara (with his long-stemmed lotus and what may be a ruined Amitabha in his jata headdress) to the left and Manjusri (a stupa in his crown) to the right. Similarly, focusing the devotees' attention in front of, rather than upon, the stupa, two pairs of celestial couples on either side, together with the bodhi (pipal) tree over the Buddha's head, form a powerful honorific arch, enclosing the haloed image and the richly decorated throne. Although they can only be seen when approached, there is a large carved teaching padmasana Buddha on the right side of the stupa's fronting projection, and an equally large bhadrasana image on the left, with very similar large bhadrasana images carved on the stupa's drum. However, two panels remain uncut, one being very flawed, the other showing traces of the head being just started by the sculptor.

Sub-shrine at the right end of main porch

Buddha panels appear over the pillared entrances of the cells at either end of the main porch. The right one has a number of carvings. In the inner chamber, is a figure of Avalokitesvara, seated in the position of ease, making the gesture of offering in his proper right hand, and holding an expanded lotus in the other. The shrinelet doorway is recessed. Flanking the cell's doorway on the left is Mahamayuri sits above her peacock, holding a feather in her hand. She is paired with Bhrkuti, four-armed, on the right. Of the twenty one small panels in this area which show seated male and female bodhisattvas or Buddhas, at least twenty show the same mudra - the gesture of offering - as seen in the large seated bodhisattva around which they are clustered.
