The Sixteen Arhats embody the compassion of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the three times. Emanations of the Buddha, they have the appearance of disciples. Lord Buddha instructed them to protect his doctrine and living beings and to remain after his Nirvana until Maitreya had been fully enlightened in Vajrasana.
