This is an exquisite Mirror comprising a gold plated round disc with one side featuring a Mandala representing the holy residence of Avalokiteshvara whilst the other side has a shiny reflective surface encircled with powerful mantras. The polished gold handle is embellished with a glorious gold ball chain tassel.
Although depicted on a flat surface, the Mandala is actually three-dimensional, being a “divine mansion” at the center of which resides Avalokiteshvara, surrounded by the deities of his entourage. The central deity Avaloketishvara represents the freedom from attachment. The four colors in the four directions are the emanated light rays of the four deity retinues. In general, the Mandala shows a method of bringing peace and harmony in our world, through genuine practices of the mind of Great Compassion, the Wisdom of Emptiness, and the meditations of Mandala with their respective deities.
