Avalokitesvara or Quan yin, Guan yin statues, embody symbolically Chenrezig/Avalokitesvara, lord of the Dharma who looks upon all beings with infinite compassion. He is known as Chenrezig in Tibetan, kannon in Japan and Kuan-yin in china. His mantra is “om mane padme hum”. Avalokitesvara is the Bodhisattva of Compassion and the essence of the Mahayana Ideal of The Bodhisattva, awakened being, working for the benefit of all beings. The upsurge of compassion in the Bodhisattva is known as the Bodhicitta. He occupies a prominent place in the Heart sutra, Prajnaparamita Hridaya.
