Guan Yin, 觀音


Avalokiteśvara,

Guan Yin originated in Sanskrit as the male Bodhisattva Avalokiteśvara. To the Chinese, Avalokiteśvara takes a female form, call Guan Shi' Yin, 觀世音, who which means the One who "hears the cries of the world" or the "Goddess of Mercy. In the Chen Dynasty, 557 - 589, in China, there was also a compassionate empress who became a Buddhist nun by the name of Guan Yin. She is Empress Shen Wu Hua, 沈婺華.

During the Tang Dynasty, 618 - 907, Emperor Tai Zong issued an order on naming taboo, thus created the change of the name from Guan Shi' Yin to Guan Yin.

In Mahayana Buddhism, which many Chinese Buddhists belongs to, gender is no obstacle to Enlightenment. The Buddhist concept of non-duality applies here. The Vimalakirti Sutra proves that female can also be enlightened. In the Lotus Sutra a maiden became Enlightened in a very short time span. Thus the bodhisattva Avalokitesvara is also the bodhisattva Guan Yin is not seen as contradictory. Bodhisattvas are also known to appear at will as living people, a skillful means to be able to help them. Thus Guan Yin is also praised as the Bodhisattva of Compassion or Karuna, the symbol of unconditional love and a savior during troubled times. Today Guan Yin's base is the famous pilgrimage mountain of "Putuo Shan" 普陀山, an island in Zhe Jiang province, China.

In Tibetan Buddhist lands, the most common prayer, found everywhere, is the six syllable mantra "Om Ma Ni Pe Me Hung", the mantra of Guan Yin, the bodhisattva of compassion. The mantra originated in India; and became popular in Tibetan Buddhism.

Guan Yin is called Chenrezi in Tibet and Kannon in Japan. Veneration to Guan Yin can be made through the twelve vows to the Bodhisattva. The Twelve Vows To Bodhisattva Guan Yin are

  1. "I respectfully bow to Guan Yin, the Tathagata, with the title boundless understanding, the name Great Liberation, who raised the immeasurable vows.
