This mudra is indicating, I attained jewel-like great enlightenment through receiving blessings from my Spiritual Guide Amitabha.His second left hand holds a white lotus flower. A lotus grows in the mud at the bottom of a lake, but its flowers bloom on the surface of the water, completely free from the stains of mud. By holding a lotus flower Avalokiteshvara is showing that, because he attained enlightenment, he is free from all obstacles and has a completely pure body, speech, and mind. His second right hand holds a crystal mala, symbolizing that he can free all living beings from samsara and lead them to liberation. Even though Avalokiteshvara is an enlightened being, he still shows respect to his Spiritual Guide.
