AVALOKITESWARA STATUES , LOKESHWARA STATUES

Lord of the world form of Avalokiteswara,. This form is assumed when Buddhist pantheon incorporated on Shiva. Lokeshwara is found both as an attendant diety and in his own shrine. He is richly ornamented. He wears a sacred thread of jewels and earrings. There will be full blown lotus at each shoulder.Avalokiteshwara is the symbol of the Great Compassion that exists within and all around us, the compassion we find through the bright, non-judgemental all-acceptance of meditation and mindfulness. Uncovering this compassion and manifesting it in one's daily life is essential to spiritual growth, and is called "finding the Heart of Kanzeon".
Avalokiteshwara's vow is to appear in whatever form is necessary in order to lead beings out of suffering. Therefore, Avalokiteshwara is sometimes depicted in female mode and sometimes in male mode, but the true nature of compassion transcends these opposites. Meditation can help us to see the compassion always being offered no matter what form it may take.

Avalokiteshwara is often shown holding a vase for pouring out the water of compassion and a willow twig with which to asperge this spiritual water in blessing. She can also be seen with the following attributes:
1. Rosary, representing the washing and cleansing of our karma of body, speech and mind in the "water of the spirit" of meditation, each bead symbolizing a drop of that water.
2. Lotus flower, expressing the natural unfolding of Truth through patient, diligent training. The lotus also teaches us how to "live in the world as if in the sky" by planting its root in the mud of daily life, growing its straight stem of faith through the dark waters of impermanence and opening the blossom of awakening to Buddha Nature, our True Self.
3. Scroll, representing the Lotus Sutra which explains Avalokiteshwara's vows in Chapter 25.
4. Hands held together in gassho, symbolizing both the mind of reverence and the unity of all opposites within the One Mind of Buddha.
5. Hands resting in her lap in meditation, embracing all things. This mudra is also known as the "smile of the Buddha."
6. A thousand hands and a thousand eyes (an eye in the palm of each hand), showing his ability to see and render spiritual aid to all beings in need in 1000 different ways.
7. With a hare, revealing her compassionate protection of animals.
8. Lotus sceptre, which also represents the lotus blossom, as the means by which we reach from "earth to heaven" through the stillness of daily meditation and training.
9. Holding the infant, Maitreya, the "Buddha That is to Come."

Avalokiteshwara is customarily depicted in one of three postures. Standing, he demonstrates the readiness to respond to the needs of others. Seated in royal ease, with one knee raised, she shows us how to be at ease within the effort of religious training. Seated with legs crossed in meditation, she teaches us how to be still with whatever arises in daily life.

AVALOKITESWARA

Among the 108 forms of Lokeshwara Avalokiteswara is one who refuses to accept Nirvana since he consider such acceptance selflish in view of the ignorance of the great majority of the people who have not yet attained that stage (Kuruna), sharing of mankind's misery, willingness to help those in distress. He holds in his hand the indestructible jewel. He is saviour and protector from danger, So, his invocation (Mantra) " OM MAINI PADME HUM" is found inscribed on rocks, loose stone, prayer wheels, etc. Avalokiteswara is called chengresik in Tibet.

EKADAS LOKESHWARA

Avalokiteswara, in his mainfestation with eleven heads, is Samantamukha or the ' All sided One' the god who looks in every diorection to protect all creatures. In this form he is known as Ekadas Lokeshwara. Avalokiteswara " The Compassionate one", descended into hell converted the wicked, liberated them, and conducted them to Sukhavati, the paradise of his spritual father, Amitabha. Avalokiteswara discovered that for every culprit converted and liberated another instantly look his place and legend claims that his head split into ten pieces from grief and despair on discovering the extend of wickedness in the world and the utter hoplessness of saving all mankind. Amitabha caused each piece to become a head, and placed the head on the body of his spiritual son. Avalokiteswara, in three tires heads of three with the tenth head on top and his won image above them all. Thus , the " One Looking Lord' was endowed with twenty two eyes instead of two, to see all suffering, and eleven brains instead of one, to concentrate on the best means of saving mankind. The three tires of head indicate that Avalokiteswara looks down on the three world, world of desire, world of live form and world of no form.

SAHASRABHUJA AVALOKITESWARA

Sahasrabhuja Avalokiteswara is cosmic form of Avalokiteswara. He is represented with eleven heads and one thousand arms. The basic image is of the eleven headed and eight armed Lokeswara. The eight arms of Sahasrabhuja Avalokiteswara has more prominent position and other remaining one are distributed on either side to form a mandala. These arms are sometimes marked with eyes. The eleventh head at the top is that of his parent Tathgata, Amitabha. The tenth head is terrifying and all others are placid. the principal pair of hands is held against the chest in the gesture of adoration while the uppermost hands hold the rosary and the full blown lotu.

AVALOKITESWARA MANTRA

Om Mani Padme Huum


Avalokiteshvara is a Bodhisattva who represents compassion, and his mantra also symbolizes that quality. Avalokiteshvara means "The Lord Who Looks Down (in compassion)" There are various forms of Avalokitesvara (Chenrezig in Tibetan). The four-armed form is shown here. There is also a 1000-armed form -- the many arms symbolizing compassion in action. And in the far east, Avalokiteshvara turned into the female Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin.

Om, as I've explained before, has only a mystical meaning -- suggesting primordial reality. Mani means jewel, while Padme means lotus. Hum, like Om, has no conceptual meaning. Overall, the mantra is suggestive of the bringing together of the qualities of wisdom (the lotus) and compassion (the jewel). Just as the lotus can exist in muddy water without being soiled, so wisdom can exist in an impure world without becoming contaminated. And the Dalai Lama points out that just as a jewel can relieve poverty, so the compassionate mind takes away the poverty of unhappiness that exists in the world and replaces it with the wealth of wellbeing.

This is probably the best known Buddhist mantra. I swear I remember hearing it chanted on an episode of the BBC Sci-fi series, Dr Who, when I was a young kid back in the 1960s

This mantra is very widely chanted in Tibet, and not only chanted but carved onto stones, printed onto flags, and embossed onto prayer wheels. The illustration below shows the mantra's six syllables, which from left to right are: Om Ma Ni Pa Dme Hum.

Tibetans find Sanskrit hard to pronounce (so do westerners, actually, but in different ways) and so Tibetans pronounce "Padme" as "peh-may".
