Avalokiteshwara is considered to be the embodiment of compassion. Avalokiteshwara can be depicted with 2, 4, 8, 12, 24, or 1000 arms. In each palm there is an eye, which represents Avalokiteshwara’s omniscience. The eleven heads encompass the three worlds of demons, humans, and Buddhas. The heads represent the principle virtues, meant to conquer the eleven desires.In Tibet, His Holiness The Dalai Lama, is considered to be the emanation of Avalokiteśwara.
