Official - Bodhisattva, Japan

After a long while i have sent the maximum number of cards on the official postcrossing site, which is at the moment 13. So last week i've received quite a few as well - and oh what a joy that two are from Japan xD


This is Avalokitesvara - a Bodhisattva (enlightenment-being in Buddhism) who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas. It is one of the more widely revered bodhisattvas in mainstream Mahayana Buddhism. This particular sculpture is situated in Eiho-ji, a Rinzai Zen Buddhist temple in northern Tajimi, Gifu Prefecture. The whole complex looks absolutely stunning! Thank you Tomoyuki/tomomo, and for the cute animal stamp :)
