1000-Armed Goddess of Mercy (Sanskrit = Sahasrabhuja-Arya-Avalokitesvara; Japanese = Senju Kannon 千手観音 or Senbi Kannon 千臂観音 or Daihi Kannon 大悲観音). This compassionate Bodhisattva sees our suffering with 1000 eyes and acts to alleviate it with 1,000 hands. This form came to prominence in Japan's Heian era among Japan's esoteric sects, especially the Shingon and Tendai sects. Since it is difficult to portray 1,000 arms, it is customary to show the deity with two main arms holding hands in prayer (Gassho-in, mudra of veneration), and 40 other arms holding symbolic objects. The 40 arms each represent 25 worlds, and 40 times 25 equals 1000. Each arm is also said to contain one eye, again totaling 1000 eyes.)

The 11 heads are said to represent the 10 stages along the Bodhisattva path, with the 11th head, the central head, representing Amida Buddha, for Kannon is one of Amida's main attendants. 

  • Wood = Cypress (Jp. = Hinoki). 
  • Centimeters = H = 12.5 cm x Base (Side-to-Side) = 4.8 cm
  • Comes in five pieces: (1) the halo; (2) main piece with arms holding objects; (3 & 4) ringed staff and vadjra staff; and (5) octoganal pedestal. 
  • Holds numerous symbolic weapons and objects in hands. For example, the Vajra staff represents the indestructibility of Buddhist law and its power to vanquish evil, while the ringed staff symbolizes Kannon's role in saving people in all realms of rebirth.
