Practice great love and compassion, practice for the benefit of all sentient beings.

Our bodies are impermanent, there is no essence in samsara.

Practice the 10 positive deeds, and abandon the 10 negative deeds.

May all be auspiciousness in this world, and may auspiciousness come to all gathered here.

OM MANI PADME HUM HRI OM MANI PADME HUM.”

Description:

Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of infinite compassion and mercy, possibly the most beloved of all figures in Buddhist legend. Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara is beloved throughout the Buddhist world – not only in Mahayana Buddhism (Great Vehicle), but also in Theravada, the branch of Buddhism that largely does not recognize Bodhisattvas, and in Vajrayana, the Tantric branch of Buddhism.

Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara has great powers and can help all sentient beings. His siddhis are limitless and he can appear in any form in all the 6 realms of existence to relieve the suffering of the sentient beings who live there. Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara vowed to rescue those who call on him when they are in suffering, for example, when caught in a fire, shipwrecked or facing an attack.

The virtues and miracles of Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara are accounted in many Buddhist sutras. The Avalokiteshvara-sutra was incorporated into the well-known Saddharmapundarika-sutra, or Lotus Sutra, in the third-century c.e., though it continued to circulate as an independent work in China.

In the Lotus Sutra, Gautama Buddha said that if a suffering being hears the name of Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara and earnestly calls out to the Bodhisattva, Avalokiteshvara will hear the call and relieve that being from his suffering.
