About The Event
Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva (GUANSHIYIN PUSA)
Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva is one of the best known Bodhisattvas in Buddhism. Widely venerated by many as the embodiment of mercy and universal compassion, a Bodhisattva who hears the pleas for help from those in distress or suffering in the world. Because of her vows to save all beings and lead them to the path of enlightenment, she will always bring us across the sea of woes safely without fail.
Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva is like a benevolent mother, who treats all beings as her own without any discrimination. As such, she is the focus of worship by the Mahayana Buddhist community for her kindness and loving concern for all living beings.
There are three commemorative days for valokitesvara Bodhisattva that are observed by the Mahayana Buddhist community in a year. The 19th day of the 2nd lunar month is celebrated by many as her birthday; the 19thday of the 6th lunar month is widely commemorated as her Enlightenment Day; while the 19th day of the 9th lunar month is observed as her Renunciation Day. This is based on the life of Princess Miao Shan as one of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva’s manifestations which is widely believed by the Chinese.
