On the ungradual Buddhist path the Bodhisattvas are seeing as emanations of Buddhas or completely enlightened Beings. Avalokiteshvara (tib. Chenresig, chinese: Quan Yin-female form, vn.Quan Am) is one of three main Bodhisattvas along with Manjushri and Vajrapani -- Holder of the Vajra. Avalokitesvara is Bodhisattva from Pure land of Buddha Amitabha (tib. Dewa Chen). Avalokiteshvara has many forms ; the best known is 4-armed Chenresig. Another form is 1000-armed Chenresig whose sadhana is practiced in Nyungne -- fasting retreat. His name means : He/She who is listening the cries of the world. His mantra OM MANI PADME HUM is included in many initiations & sadhanas with detailed visualisations, gestures (mudras) etc. Reverence to Him is mentioned in 25th Chapter of the Lotus sutra . All Bodhisattvas have also wrathful aspects. His wrathful aspect is Hayagriva. He represents strength of Chenresig. Many Bodhisattvas have connections with sacred places and mountains. Holy mountain of Manjushri is Wu Tai in China. Avalokiteshvara´s sacred place is Potalaka mountain on the S coast of India. Pú-tó mountain in China is dedicated to Quan Yin. Avatamsaka sutra refers to a mythical island of Avalokiteshvara. OM MANI PADME HUM mantra is engraved on many rocks, painted in temples or included as in this Visual Dharma.
