Kharsapani is a form of Avalokiteshvara that is usually depicted as having one face and two hands. His right hand is in the mudra of generosity and the left is often in Dharma teaching mudra and he holds a lotus blooming at the level of his left ear.

The great Tertön Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa discovered an image of Avalokiteshvara Khasarpani made from a bone of Yeshe Tsogyal as the sacred body representation for his terma Padma Tsuktor. This image was last known to be in the treasury of Rumtek Monastery during the lifetime of the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa Rangjung Rigpé Dorje.
