Guanyin Bodhisattva is the Dharma Protector Bodhisattva of the Chinese people.
So how did the name of Avalokitesvara come from?
Zhuge Changqing gathers Guanyin Bodhisattva's cultural data to share with those who are destined.
Guanshiyin Bodhisattva, the name of the Buddhist Bodhisattva, is a paraphrase of Avalokitevara in Sanskrit, also translated as "Guangshiyin", a new translation of "Guanshiyin" and "Guanshiyin", transliteration of "Avalokitevara" and "Avalokitevara".
Avalokitesvara and Bodhisattva are the left flank and right retinue of Amitabha, and are known as the "Three Saints of the West".
Buddhism believes that Avalokitesvara is a compassionate Bodhisattva, and that all living creatures in distress should recite his name, "the Bodhisattva immediately observes his voice", and go to save and extricate himself, hence the name. Because the name of Li Shimin, Taizong, was taboo in the Tang Dynasty, the word "Shi" was removed, and it was briefly called "Guanyin".
Zhuge Changqing: Avalokitesvara, when you hear the voice to save the suffering, you will respond to whatever you ask.
With regard to Avalokitesvara, the name of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva is listed in volumes 82 and 100 of the Sutra of Tranquility, Vimalakiri Sutra, Prajna Sutra of Light, Prajna Sutra of Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Prajna Pra. In the Dharma China Sutra, there is a detailed description of this bodhisattva's life-beneficial appearance in the Saha world.
In addition, the third volume of the Sad Hua Sutra, "The Notes of the Bodhisattvas", narrates that Amitabha Buddha's eldest son Bu Xuan, who was in front of the treasure Buddha in his past life when he had no thoughts on the wheel king, made a vow to say that if any living creature suffered all kinds of sufferings and fears, if he could remember me and call my name, that would save him from all kinds of sufferings and worries.
The Treasure Buddha gave him the name Guanshiyin.
Zhuge Changqing: The name of Avalokitesvara is given by the treasure Buddha.
Avalokitesvara is one of the four great bodhisattvas of Chinese Buddhism. According to legend, his birthday is February 19 of the lunar calendar, the day of becoming a Taoist priest is June 19 of the lunar calendar, and the day of Nirvana is September 19 of the lunar calendar. It is said that the Taoist temple is Mount Putuo. The belief in Avalokitesvara has a profound influence in China, resulting in a variety of folk legends about Avalokitesvara, such as the widely circulated saying that Avalokitesvara is the third princess of King Miaozhuang of Xinglin, Princess Miaoshan. The legend of the Goddess of Mercy was first seen in Quwei Old News by Zhu Bian of the Song Dynasty. Later, Guan Daosheng's Biography of Avalokitesvara in the late Song Dynasty and early Yuan Dynasty became a complete biography. Based on this, a large number of Guanyin storybooks, such as "Fragrant Hill Baojuan", "The Complete Biography of Guanyin in the South China Sea" and "The Way of Guanyin", have also appeared.
Don't do any evil, and do all good.
Zhuge Changqing, I wish you success.
