Protector of people born under the sign of dragon and snake
Samantabhadra, whose name in Sanskrit means universal dignity, is a Mahayana bodhisattva, or great vehicle.
Associated with dhyana, meditation, he forms a triad with The Buddha Siddartha Gautama and the bodhisattva Manjushri.
Dignitary of the lotus sutra, and according to the sutra of Avatamsaka, Samantabhadra made the ten great vows of the bodhisattva
1. Pay tribute and respect to all Buddhas.
2. praise the So-Venu 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 Buddhas at all times.
9. Welcome and benefit all living things.
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.
Answering the name Fugen in Japan, Samantabhadra is the subject of an important cult in the Tendai and Shingon movements.

Considered the adhi-Buddha Primordial in the Nyinqma current of Tibetan Buddhism, it is often depicted in Yab-Yum, or female male indivisible union with his wife or paredre Samantabhadri.
Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche following the Nyingmapa Dzogchen tradition describes the nature and essence of Samantabhadra, the Primordial Buddha, as the originless source of timeless and unlimited Atiyoga teachings, and honors the contradictory view maintained by some parties arguing that the Dzogchen teachings originate from the Bonpo tradition or from the Chinese monk Moheyan:
"Samantabhadra is not subject to time, place or physical conditions. Samantabhadra is not a colorful two-eyed being. Samantabhadra is the unity of consciousness and emptiness, the unity of appearances and emptiness, the nature of the mind, natural clarity with unceasing compassion - it is Samantabhadra from the beginning."


Unlike his more popular counterpart, Samantabhadra is rarely depicted alone and is usually found in a trinity on the right side of Shakyamuni, mounted on a six-tusked white elephant. In these traditions that accept the Avatamsaka Sutra as its fundamental instruction, Samantabhadra and Manjusri flank the Buddha Vairocana , 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 wearing a lotus leaf 'parasol' (sanskrit: chatra), wearing a dress and features similar to some female representations of Guanyin. It is in this form that Samantabhadra is revered as the protective bodhisattva of monasteries associated with Mount Emei in western China in Sichuan Province, an important Buddhist pilgrimage site. Some believe that the white elephant mount of Samantabhadra was the same elephant that appeared to Queen Maya, the Mother of the Buddha, to announce her 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 rising morning 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 his honour.



According to Tibetan Buddhism, reciting the mantra of Chenrezi Om Mani Padme Hum, aloud or inwardly, is an invocation to Chenrezig's benevolent and powerful attention, 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 with prayer mills on which the mantra is inscribed, sometimes thousands of times. There are different formats of prayer mills: there are those that can be carried with you and run with one hand, and there are others that are so large and heavy that it takes several people to run them. According to Tibetan Buddhist monks, the mantra Om Mani Padme Hum (Hung) alone brings together all the Buddha's teachings. We will now see step by step the power of this mantra in a more "technical" way.

Each syllable closes a door of reincarnation:

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

Each syllable purifies a veil:

OM: purifies the veil of the body. MA: purifies the veil of speech. NI: purifies the veil of the mind. PAD: purifies the veil of conflicting emotions. ME: purifies the veil of substantial existence. HUNG: purifies the veil that covers knowledge.

Each syllable is a mantra in itself:

OM: for the body of the Buddhas. MA: for the word of the Buddhas. NI: for the spirit of the Buddhas. PAD: for the virtues of the Buddhas. ME: for the achievements of the Buddhas. HUNG: for the grace of the body, the word, the spirit, the virtue and all the accomplishments of the Buddhas.

Each syllable corresponds to one of six transcendental paradigms or enhancements:

OM: generosity. MA: Ethics. NI: tolerance. PAD: Perseverance. ME: Concentration. HUNG: discernment.

Each syllable is also connected to a Buddha:

OM: Ratnasambhava. MA: Amaoghasiddi. NI: Vajradhara PAD: Vairocana. ME: Amitabha. HUNG: Akshobya.

Each syllable of the mantra cleanses us of a defect:

OM: pride. MA: the desire/desire to be entertained. NI: passion. PAD: stupidity/prejudice. ME: poverty/possessiveness. HUNG: Aggression/hate.

Finally, each syllable corresponds to one of the six wisdoms:

OM: the wisdom of stability. MA: Complete WISDOM NI: Wisdom emanates from oneself PAD: all embracing wisdom (dharma) ME: discriminating wisdom HUNG: mirror-like wisdom.
