The bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara (Hindi अवलोकितेश्वर Avalokite-vara "Lord Who Observes from the Top", Chinese 觀音 Guunsh-yan or 觀音 Guonyan, Shanghaian Kueu (sy)'in, Korean Gwanseeum 관세음, Japanese 観音 Kan'no, Tibetan Chenrezig, Vietnamese Quen Them, Indonesian Kwan Im, Khmer លោកេស្វរ Lokesvara), is arguably the most revered and popular great bodhisattva among the Great Vehicle Buddhists. It is also used as a yidam (tutelary deity) in tantric meditations.
Bodhisattva protean and syncretic (it can represent all other bodhisattva), embodying the ultimate compassion, it 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 of other tulkou such as karmapa. Also known as Padmapi or Ma'ipadm, it is invoked by the famous mantra Om̐ Ma'ipadme hum (ॐ मणिपद्मेहूम्).
Chenrézi is the bodhisattva of love and compassion. Chenrézi's poudja aims to develop loving friendship and compassion for all living beings without distinction. Chenrézi manifests itself in different forms: the 10-headed, 1000-arm Chenrézi of compassion is best known: he promised his spiritual father, the Amitabha Buddha, to expend all his energy to free all living beings and not to rest until all living beings were freed from their suffering. If he should ever doubt his mission, 'then my head could fragment into ten and my body in 1000'. When, after meditating deeply and reciting the Mantra of 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.
