Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara

Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara
[Tibetan: »Tschenresi«, »sPyan.ras.gzigs« སྤྱན་རས་གཟིགས]

Once upon a time, Amitabha, the fourth Dhyani-Buddha and Buddha of Infinite Light, after giving himself up to earnest meditation, caused a white ray of light to issue from his right eye, which brought Avalokitesvara into existence'. Amitabha blessed him, whereupon the Boddhisattva brought forth the prayer: »Om, mani, padme, hum« Thus Avalokitesvara is regarded as spiritual son of Dhyani-Buddha Amitabha. As the personification of power, the all-pitying one, he is the most popular divinity in the Mahayana [great vehicle] pantheon and is subject of much veneration in Nepal Tibet.
