As an embodiment of the universal compassion of all Buddhas Chenrezig applies in Sanskrit: Avalokiteshvara. With his benevolent eyes he sees the suffering of the beings and relieves it by the power of his six syllable mantras OM MA NI PAD ME HUM. This acts as a kaleidoscope of the universal work of Chenrezig and carries virtually the whole meaning of the Buddha Dharma in itself. Not least because of this, it is one of the most widely used meditation practices in Tibetan Buddhism.
Ringu Tulku will supplement his explanation of the Four Dharmas of Gampopa with a Chenrezig empowerment this year, as the cultivation of compassion is central to the Mahayana path. The true practice of Chenrezig is to meditating on the seeds of the unconditional, boundless compassion that all living things already carry, so that there is no longer any separation between the practitioner and Chenrezig's practice of compassion.
