Honestly I prefer the male chenrezig. But on the other hand his gender is not dominant in mind. Not at all. It is more some sort of youthfulness.

Kind regards

I have a translation of the Heart Sutra where Avalokiteshvara is referred to as female.

Must be a rarity. I never came across a text where the gender has been explicitly mentioned.
However Avalokiteshvara manifests according to the being who invokes him.


Kind regards
