In order to receive blessings from Guan Yin during my lectures I asked some Buddhist to look for a Chenrezi (Tibetan name of the Four-arm Avalokitesvara) Thangka (painting scroll) so that I may hang it up high above the lectern. Through the help of several Buddhists we obtained a painting with refined details in golden hue, a work done by a senior Nepali painter. Above the main figure of Chenrezi Amitabha Buddha stays atop to grant blessings, and a pair of dragon and phoenix surrounds on left and right side. In front of Chenrezi there are Manjusri and Vajrapani on left and right side. Unexpectedly we received this Thangka that signifies the blessing of Compassion (Chenrezi), Wisdom (Manjusri) and Power (Vajrapani) in harmonized union; I couldn't help exclaim in awe that Buddha's grace is so profound and beyond comprehension!
