Who is Avalokiteshvara?

is a revered bodhisattva symbolizing boundless compassion. 

Compassion, according to Avalokiteshvara, is the primary path to relieving the suffering of all sentient beings and attaining enlightenment for the benefit of others.

Suffering & Compassion

Suffering is an innate part of the human condition. 

While it might seem that we ourselves have experienced more suffering than others, suffering is ultimately relative. In other words, we all suffer equally, and are therefore equally deserving of compassion.


We sincerely hope that this modest shrine becomes a catalyst for nurturing greater compassion within you, ultimately leading to an enriched life filled with happiness and fulfillment. - Team Backpack Buddha
