1) BODHISATTVA GUAN YIN RAT SIGN

The bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara (Hindi अवलोकितेश्वर Avalokiteśvara "lord who observes from above", Chinese 觀世音 Guānshìyīn or 觀音 Guānyīn, Shanghai Kueu(sy)'in, Korean Gwanseeum 관세음, Japanese 観音 Kan'non, Tibetan Chenrezig, Vietnamese Quán Thế Âm, Indonesian Kwan Im, Khmer លោកេស្វរ Lokesvara), is arguably the most revered and popular great bodhisattva among the Buddhists of the Great Vehicle. It is also used as yidam (tutelary deity) in tantric meditations.

Protean and syncretic bodhisattva (he can represent all other bodhisattva), embodying ultimate compassion, he can be feminine in China, Korea, Japan and Vietnam, in the form of Guan Yin.

He is considered the protector of Tibet where King Songtsen Gampo and later the Dalai Lamas are seen as his emanations. This is also the case with other tulku such as the Karmapa. Also called Padmapāṇi or Maṇipadmā, it is invoked by the famous mantra Om̐ Maṇipadme hūm (ॐ मणिपद्मेहूम्).
Chenrézi is the bodhisattva of love and compassion. The Chenrézi pudja aims to develop loving friendship and compassion for all living beings without distinction. Chenrézi manifests himself in different forms: the Chenrézi with 10 heads and 1000 arms of compassion is the best known: he promised his spiritual father, the Buddha Amitabha, to expend all his energy to free all living beings and not to rest until all living beings were delivered from their suffering. If he ever doubts his mission, 'may my head fragment into ten and my body into 1000'. When, after meditating deeply and constantly reciting the Mantra of the Mani, he saw that the ocean of suffering had still not emptied, then he fell into deep despair and broke his head in 10 and his body in 1000. The six-syllable mantra OM MANI PEME HOENG is the best-known mantra of Tibetan Buddhism.

2) BODHISATTVA SAMANTABHADRA SIGN OF THE DRAGON AND THE SERPENT
Samantabhadra, whose Sanskrit name means universal dignity, is a bodhisattva of Mahayana, or great vehicle.
Associated with dhyana, meditation, he forms a triad with Siddartha Gautama Buddha and bodhisattva Manjushri.
Dignitary of the lotus sutra, and according to the Avatamsaka sutra, Samantabhadra made the ten great vows of the bodhisattva
1. To pay homage and respect to all Buddhas.
2. Rent the Thus Came the Tathagata (Buddha)
3. Make abundant offerings.
4. Repent of misdeeds and bad karmas.
5. Rejoice in the merits and virtues of others.
6. Ask the Buddhas to continue teaching.
7. Ask the Buddhas to stay in the world.
8. Follow the teachings of the Buddhas at all times.
9. Welcome and enjoy all living beings.
10. Transfer all merits and virtues to the benefit of all beings.

Known in Chinese Buddhism as Puxian, it is associated with action, while Manjushri is associated with transcendent wisdom or prajna.
Named Fugen in Japan, Samantabhadra is the object of an important cult in the Tendai and Shingon currents.

Considered the adhi-Buddha (Primordial Buddha) in the Nyinqma stream of Tibetan Buddhism, he is often represented in Yab-Yum, or indivisible female male union with his wife or paredre Samantabhadri.
Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche following the Nyingmapa tradition Dzogchen qualifies the nature and essence of Samantabhadra, the Primordial Buddhadra, as the sourceless source of timeless and unlimited Atiyoga teachings, and honors the contradictory view held by some parties that the Dzogchen teachings originated from the Bonpo tradition or the Chinese monk Moheyan:
"Samantabhadra is not subject to limitations of time, place or physical conditions. Samantabhadra is not a colorful being with two eyes. Samantabhadra is the unity of consciousness and emptiness, the unity of appearances and emptiness, the nature of mind, natural clarity with unceasing compassion – this has been Samantabhadra from the beginning."


Unlike his more popular counterpart Mañjuśrī, Samantabhadra is only rarely depicted alone and is usually found in a trinity on the right side of Shakyamuni, mounted on a white elephant with six tusks. In those traditions that accept the Avatamsaka Sutra as its fundamental instruction, Samantabhadra and Manjusri flank Vairocana Buddha, the central Buddha of this particular sutra.
It is sometimes shown in Chinese art with feminine characteristics, riding an elephant with six pairs of tusks while carrying a lotus leaf 'parasol' (Sanskrit: chatra), wearing a dress and features similar to some female depictions of Guanyin. It is in this form that Samantabhadra is revered as the patron bodhisattva of the monasteries associated with Mount Emei in western China in Sichuan province, an important Buddhist pilgrimage site. Some believe that Samantabhadra's white elephant mount was the same elephant that appeared to Queen Maya, the Buddha's mother, to announce his birth.
The esoteric traditions of Mahayana treat Samantabhada as one of the "Primordial" Buddhas (Sanskrit: Dharmakaya ), but the main primordial Buddha is considered Vairocana.

The Sri Lankan people worship Samantabhadra Bodhisattva as Saman (also called Sumana, Samantha, Sumana Saman). The name Saman means "the morning rising sun". The god Saman is considered one of the guardian deities of the island as well as a protector of Buddhism. Its main shrine is located in Ratnapura, where an annual festival is held in its honor.

3) BODHISATTVA AKASHAGARBHA SIGN OF THE BUFFALO
Akashagarbha is the protector of people born under the sign of buffalo and tiger.

He is one of the eight great boddhisattva of the vajrayana. and one of the thirteen Buddhas of the Japanese Shingon tantric school. Its name is formed from ākāśa, "unlimited space", and garbha, "matrix". invoked to develop wisdom.
His cult was maintained mainly in Japan.

Ākāśagarbha represents the essence of ether and belongs on mandalas to the ratna (jewel) family. According to the Akashagarbha Sutra, it is prayed to the east while waiting for the dawn (aruņa) which is its manifestation. It is also said that the moon, the sun and the stars are its manifestations. Given that part of his name can have the meaning of "sky", some have proposed to see a celestial or stellar deity at the origin of the bodhisattva.

This bodhisattva is associated with a memory-enhancing ritual described in the Sutra of the bodhisattva Ākāśagarbha which was introduced to Japan during the Nara period (645-794). Even today, many people recite his mantra in the hope of revitalizing a failing memory. On the island of Honshu, children used to pay tribute to Kokuzo on their thirteen birthday to solicit the improvement of their intellectual abilities. Ākāśagarbha is also prayed for manual skill; He is considered the patron saint of craftsmen.

Apart from its utilitarian aspects, Kokuzō's mantra also has a spiritual effect. He is recited to develop wisdom. Kukai, founder of Shingon Buddhism, did several times his particular asceticism, "Goumanji" ritual of 100 days consisting of repeating the mantra a million times in isolation. At the end of the 10th, it is said that the star of dawn, symbolized by the bodhisattva, descended to merge into him, bringing him enlightenment.

Last on the list of Thirteen Buddhas of the Shingon stream, Ākāśagarbha also closes the cycle of funeral rituals by presiding over the last commemorative ceremony 32 years after the death.

Ākāśagarbha also has some importance in Nichiren Buddhism. The Seicho-ji (Kiyosumi-dera), the temple where the founder of the current studied, was built around a statue of this bodhisattva. According to the Gosho, a collection of his writings, Nichiren saw one day Kokuzō appear before him and then change into an old monk who gave him a pearl of wisdom.

MANTRA OF COMPASSION OM MANI PADME HUM
According to Tibetan Buddhism, reciting the mantra of Chenrezig Om Mani Padme Hum, out loud or inwardly, is an invocation to the benevolent and powerful attention of Chenrezig, the expression of the Buddha's compassion. Seeing the written mantra can have the same effect, which is why it is found in clearly visible places, even engraved in stone. It can also be invoked using prayer wheels on which the mantra is inscribed, sometimes thousands of times. There are different formats of prayer wheels: there are those that you can carry with you and spin with one hand, and there are others that are so big and heavy that it takes several people to spin them. According to Tibetan Buddhist monks, the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum (Hung) alone brings together all of the Buddha's teachings. We will now see step by step the power of this mantra in a more "technical" way.

OM: Close the door to the world of the Devas (gods). MA: Close the door to the world of asuras (demigods). NI: Close the door to the human world. PAD: Close the door to the animal world. ME: Close the door to the world of pretas ("greedy spirits"). HUNG: Close the gate of hell.

Each syllable is also connected to a Buddha:
