Khedcheddi is also a form of the Bodhisattva Avalokitesavra. He is also known as six-syllabled Lokeshovra, "OM MANI PADME HUM," which is considered so efficacious that it has been carved on rock faces and is constantly chanted by devotees. Khedcheddi is always decked with all sorts of ornaments. He is white in color with four arms, holding a rosary in his right hand and a full lotus blossom in his left. His two other principal hands are raised to the chest with the palms enjoined in the Namaskar mudra with a round object known as jewel, which is regarded as a symbol of knowledge.



ケチェッディはBodhisattva Avalokitesavraのひとつの形である。彼は6文字のオム マニ パドメ フム、それは薬と考えられ、岩の上に彫られ、信者に唱えられていた。すべての種類の飾り物で飾られていて、4つの手を持ち、右手に数珠、左手に満開の蓮の花を持つ。彼のほかの2つの手は胸のところで知識の象徴である丸い宝石を持ってナマステの形をとる。
