Avalokitesvara Trilokavijaya Vidyadhara Sutra
First Chapter: The Forward
As I heard that at one time, the Buddha was in a castle amongst the precious mountain peaks. There were hundreds of thousands of precious umbrellas and various tree species adorned with all kinds of perfume and exquisite cloth stripes. All senior Arahats Maudgalyayana (大目乾連), Sariputra (舍利弗), Ananda (阿難) etc. a total of 1250 people surrounding the Buddha together with uncountable Bodhisattvas, Vajrapani Bodhisattva, Manjusri Bodhisattva and all complete seated in the front seats. Again there are Vaisravana, Brahmin, Parinayaka (warriors), Brahman, Indra, Narayana, Nagas, Yaksa, Raksa, Pilita, Bhaisajya, Kinara, Mahoraga etc. with their dependents. All of them surrounding the Buddha and presenting their offerings with utmost respect.
At the time, the Buddha was sitting in a lion throne made of various precious stones. He was to preach about the essential practice of Bodhisattva to Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva and the rest.
The Avalokitesvara who is the great compassionate bodhisattva circled the Buddha times and put his robe on his right shoulder, kneel down on his right knee and clasped his hands in respectful manner. He said to the Buddha: “Blessed one, due to one dharma that give rise to love and happiness, great compassion, hardworking and brave that give rise to benefits and peace. To protect all sentient beings, this is so-called ‘king of enlightenment’. As the name implies hence it is called: The supreme of the three worlds. Now I wish to preach this dharma.”
The Buddha said: “Great Bodhisattva, please talk now.” Avalokitesvara obliged and hence announced his heart mantra:
Namo.Ratna.trayaya. Namo.Aryavalokitesvara-ya. Tisattva-ya. Maha-sattva-ya. Maha.karunika-ya. Tadyatha: Pi.nama.pani.sara.sara.yisiye.supayavam.na-liya.valokitesvara-ruli.
Secondly, I speak the ‘head mantra’:
The top mantra:
The eye mantra:
The heart mantra:
The armour mantra:
The sword mantra:
The fence mantra:
The arrow mantra:
The net mantra:
The wall mantra:
The upmost heart mantra:
The alert heart mantra:
The heart happening mantra:
The wheel mantra:
As soon as Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva mentioned the Supreme Three World and other major mantras, the 3000 worlds experience 6 types of quakes. Flowers fall from various heavens. All frozen naraka (hell) became warm and comfortable. Until the Avici naraka and all hot naraka became cool. Unlimited lights shine upward until the Akanistka heaven. Hundreds of thousands music automatically played in the air. The naga, yaksa, kinara etc. all praise the Buddha and Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva. While all demon and obstacle creaters such as Vinayaka cried out loud. All heavens praised Avalokitesvara:
Sadhu, saduh the great compassionate one,
Sadhu to the benefactor and sorrow remover,
Sadhu, sadhu the Mahasattva,
Praise for the one who has accomplished righteousness.
After the Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva completed speaking the mantra, he said to the Buddha, “Blessed one, this heart mantra can pacify any illnesses, uphold righteous, it can also annihilate, increase benefit, bestow benefits and happiness. It will let sentient beings stay in independent Samaya. It can walk in the air and discover hidden treasures; it can remove various poisons, spiders, snakes, scorpions etc. I will influence others to beloved and respect. It can revive the dead. It will provide protections against lions, tigers, wolf, bears and robbers. It can break all black curses. It will bestow wish fulfilling jewels and vases. It rains jewels and wheel of swords. It bestows the strings of gods and lotus garlands, bathtubs and prayer rosaries. It can make river and sea dry, it can provide foods for all heavens, and it can present sceneries of various heavens and let anyone make use. It can shake the King of Mount Sumeru. It can summon all trees; whatever one wishes will be accomplished. Whatever methods that I have mentioned, or not yet mention in the precious rosaries, buildings and Maitreya kalpas shall be accomplished also.
Second Chapter: The Accomplishment Of Activities
At this time, Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva told Buddha:
“Blessed one, if there are decent men and women, who recite this heart mantra casually, they too will be protected from all fear. They will not be harmed by illnesses, what they say will be trusted. They will be beloved by all sentient beings. They will not be attacked by gods, devata, yaksa, raksa, pilita, Vaisravana, Ghandava, Mahoraga etc. They will die in peace and that they will not be reborn into bad companies. All their warehouses shall be filled always. They will get great mantras and can remove all sickness. When they die, they shall be reborn in the realm of Buddha with accomplished features.
I will first talk about the Hayagriva Avalokitesvara ritual which is a must practise mantra to attain siddhi. If the blessed one or other practitioner wants to accomplish siddhi, he must clean his body with 5 pure substances and also to anoint (with cow dunk) and decorate his dwelling place. After that, he should obtain oral transmission on proper mantra practices. He should then offer milk, incense, flower, light, flower garland, food and beverages to the Buddha. He should recite the mantra for as many times as he could within a period of 7 days. After that, he should draw the image of Istha-devata. The size of the drawing should be one elbow’s length. The artist should first undergo the 8 precepts. Use new utensils but don’t use animal gum.
Amatibah Buddha sitting on white lotus should be drawn in the centre. His right hand is making varada mudra. On the left should be the Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva. His body is white in colour wearing a tiger hide skirt. He has a white glass gem waist belt and a black deer hide as his shoulder piece. He is sitting on a white lotus. His left hand is holding a white lotus while his right hand is making the varada mudra. However he does not wear wreaths and armlets. On the left should be the Vajrapani Bodhisattva red and white in colour adorned with various precious wreaths. He is holding a white whisk and making the action of whisking the Buddha. All the Buddha and Bodhisattvas stared at the practitioner. The practitioner should kneel down with his right knee touching the ground while holding an incense burner. He should look at the holy images.
After the completion of the said drawing, if he is a practitioner at home, then he should hold the 8 precepts. He should take a bath and change into new white clothing at 3am. Starting from the 1stday of the month, he should offer white flowers to the Buddha. He should make 1000 stupas. He should perform the preparatory ritual in front these stupas.
After he has recited 100,000 times, all Brahman King, Mahesvara, Narayana, Kubera, Mahakala and the 7 sisters, Garuda etc shall be triumph. When he enters into all mandala and achieves samaya; hence all his mantra shall be accomplished.
After he has recited 200,000 times, Vaisravana King and all yaksa shall be filled with joy. After he has recited 300,000 times, then he shall accomplish all mantras in the Vajradhatu. After he has recited 400,000 times, he shall accomplish all mantras in the Buddha-dhatu.
The practitioner should first complete the above preparatory method first. Then he should recite mantra 100,000 times in front of the holy images. After that go to a mountain and recite 100,000 times, then go to a river bank and recite 100,000 times and finally recite 100,000 times mantra in front of the stupas. He should take the 8 precepts then. And he should continue to recite the mantra as many times as he could in 3 days in front of the holy images. Follow by fasting for 3 days and 3 nights.
He should prepare generous offerings and prepare 1000 lotus and smear them with 3 types of sweet. Perform a homa ritual and offer the entire lotus to the fire. When this is completed, lights shall be emitted from the holy images. These lights will circle the practitioner and then enter into the head of Avalokitesvara. Gradually the lights will increase in intensity, and music can be heard in the air. At this point, the earth will start to shake vigorously in all 4 directions.
The practitioner should understand that he has achieved the siddhi of mantra. He can now speak out 3 wishes. The so-called: Vidyadhara, the independent samaya, Vajra Mitira (treaty) etc. If a Vidyadhara appears, he shall be the king of Vidyadharas. He has beautiful body features, white hairs and Prussian blue in colour. He immediately transforms into the image of an 18 years old lad. With a clip of an eye, he can travel hundreds of thousands of yojana. His life shall be 500,000 years and when he died, he shall be reborn into the kingdom of peace. If he wished for independent samaya, then it shall be the top of all independent samayas. When he thinks, he can move at a speed of 1000 yojana and return.
If he is able to get the third wish, then he will have wade and freedom and that he can live for 5000 years. If he wants to have lotus accomplishment, then he should carve a lotus with a diameter of 6 fingers wide with rosewood. He should put this rosewood lotus on top of 7 layers of white lotus during solar or lunar eclipses in front of the holy image. After that just recite mantra until the appearance of 3 signs: If the lotus becomes warm, than he has the accomplishment of vajra-raja. He has the power of 1000 elephants and a lifespan of 100,000 years. If smoke emitted, then this is the accomplishment of independent samaya. He has the accomplishment of bowl-raja. He can take 1/6 of other’s wealth and this is not called theft. He will have a life span of 1000 years. If it is the sign of a flame, then he has accomplished the meaning of emptiness and be the Vidhyaraja. He has the body of an 18 year old lad and Prussian blue in colour. He has the strength of 6,000 elephants. He emits lights as if 100,000 suns. He will have life span of 1 kalpa. When he dies, he will be reborn into world of supreme joy. As such and the rest, bathtub, string of god, prayer beads, magic wand, flower garland, wheel, sword, stick, beauty, ploughshare, axe, making cattle, yellow shirt, realgar, leather, slipper, mudra, vajra, Buddha top, alms, bowl, cassock, short knife etc. All of the above are the same as with the 3rd accomplishment of lotus.

Chapter Eighth: Common Accomplishment
At that time Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva said to Buddha, “Blessed one, I now say this profound and yet detailed ritual and rules of Vidhyahara Raja and all clans. The practitioner should first give rise to great compassion towards all sentient beings. He should filial to his parents and respect to the elders. He should think and pity all those sentient beings who are still suffering. He must have pure fate with the three gems. He also must be happy to give offering to all Buddha. He must not drink alcohol, he must not have free sexes, and he should not kill or tell lies or any similar things. This is the most important precondition in the accomplishment of this mantra. This should be the case.
First on the 5th day of a white month (after full moon), empower 5 pure substances 108 times and then drink the water. For every sip you take, you will be purified for half of a month (So called 5 pure substances: small quantity of cow dunk and urine mix with ghee, milk and cheese in a silver or bronze container and empower this mixture on the 5th day of a white month. So called 5th day of white month means 5 days after the full moon.)
Mantra for empowering the 5 pure substances:

You should bath at 3am every day. All should be done as such. Don’t argue and when you arrived at the door of the ritual room, wash your feet and recite the Saraswati mantra to empower the water. Rinse your mouth and sprinkle the water inside your ritual room.
And do the Kuntaliamrita mudra and recite mantra. After that use both hands to scoop water; and in addtition recite mantra for removing Vinayaka. The mantra for sprinkling water to 10 directions:

Secondly recite the ‘praise sea clouds mantra’:
The practitioner should be seated on thatch and at a distance of 4 elbows length from the Satyadevata (yidam). First he should view himself as Kuntalivajra and then follow by Satyadevata. This should be followed by various praises. He should first praise the Buddha and Vajrapani Bodhisattva. He should then express ksama (repentance). Secondly, he should hold his mala and empower his mala with above mantra. Immediately his own heart is connected with his Satyadevata. Or he should concentrate on mantra words in a circle (the colour of these words will change with the four activities: pacification, increasing, attracts and destroys). He should recite mantra according to the required number of counts. This mantra is the recitation of ‘mother mantra’ for the presentation to the Satyadevata (guru said that one can imagine the mantra syllables came out from his mouth in golden colour and going into the mouth of the Satyadevata. He should make a vow: My only wish is the Satyadevata empower my mantra, protect me and make my ritual come true). After that empower the mala and then keep it back at its own place. Thirdly, one should perform the homa. This is to ablaze the power of Satyadevata. One should draw the image of Kuntali on the four external doors of his ritual room. In the centre should be drawn a lotus, benzoin, ghee or fennel seeds and three sweets.
The homa ritual.
Inviting the fire heaven mantra:
After the fire heaven into Kuntali, offer 3 scoops full of ghee. The fire at this time should be aflame furiously. Now recite the offering mantra:
The practitioner should sit on a pile of thatch in a lotus pose (guru said first placed on the right leg with the left foot, then right foot is placed on the left leg of a sitting method) facing east or north. Thatch should also be placed surrounding the furnace. All homa articles and offering substances should be placed on the right side. Perfume utensil to sprinkle onto the furnace and water for rinsing mouth for agni (fire heaven) and Satyadevata should be placed at the left. After sprinkling of perfume and rising mouth, immediately offer 3 to 7 scoops full of medicine ghee to the fire and recite agni offering mantra:
After the offering, sprinkle water again for three times. Also rinse mouth on behalf of agni. One should use Mansushri mantra to rinse mouth. The mantra:
(Guru said circling is to rinse mouth, straight splash is to purify fire)
Immediately use Satyadevata heart mantra and fennel seeds with 3 sweets to perform homa for 1080 times. Again sprinkle for 3 times to disperse. Also use the agni mantra to offer ghee for 3 times. After that recite the repatriate mantra:
Secondly offer incense, flower, light, food and beverages to Satyadevata and send him off. Now go out of the ritual room, make stupas and recite Mahayana sutras, or make offerings to monks etc, or wipe mandala. A practitioner should perform the above 3 times a day. He should also consume wheat, vegetables and milk daily. At night he should sleep in thatch or grass. He should use mantra to empower saffron or red colour string. After each mantra recitation, tie a knot until all 108 knots are tied. Then, tie this string on his waist. The mantra for tying string at the waist:
After reciting the above mantra, in addition recite the mother mantra for 7 times and tie the red string at one’s waist. Now he can sleep in ease. If the person is near to achieve siddhi, his Satyadevata will look after him and he will have good dreams. So-call: meeting with many monks, or seeing woman wearing muktahara (ornaments), or seeing trees, flowers and fruits growing in abundance, or seeing elephants, horse, cows and yak, or prayer beads, flower garland, bathtub, white flower, or offering of flower to Buddha, rice, realgar, orpiment etc. Or seeing me or in other good omens mentioned in other tantric texts. One must know that he is nearing to achieve accomplishment and hence he should work harder. If he misses the accomplishment, he will dream of candela, pisaca ghost or other bad shape ones. Or he sees people wearing dirty and torn clothing, or he sees incomplete mantra, or he sees crippled people. Anyone who has this kind of dreams should recite his Satyadevata mantra for 108 times. Then all of the inauspicious matters will be gone. And that he shall gain accomplishment soon. As such, what is said in sutras about methods of accomplishment, except sex, lusts and those who harm others; all can decidedly achieve accomplishment. Whoever follows the methods mentioned in this ritual, even those who has gone into Avici Hell can achieve accomplishment; it is most certainly for a bodhisattva practitioner.
The Ninth Chapter: The Heart Mantra For Accomplishments
I further mention a preparatory ritual. Recite this mantra for 100,000 times (guru said 350,000 times after that draw holy image. You should ask virgin girl to weave silk etc. She must use silk to cover her mouth with silk and that she must bath at 3am and wear white. The one who is serving food and beverages for the girl should also be clean. Even the weaving machine also must be a new one. This process should now be watched by those difficult to deal persons or gangsters. The place for weaving silk should be spread with flowers. The practitioner should turn to recite Mahā-sajnipāta-sūtra and the artist should also perform 8 precepts. Please do not bargain with the artist on the drawing price and don’t compete with the artist. The silk should be dipped into perfume. Avoid using blue glaze, orpiment and purple mine. White should use white sandalwood, usilo, karpura (Dryobalanops camphora) etc. Yellow should use Fenugreenk, sajini (or replace with lily). Red should use tulip or redwood etc. Black should use takara flower, green lotus, ‘suhexiang’ etc. Don’t draw reproduction organs. The artist should hold precepts and always have sad anusmrtayah (6 thoughts: think of Buddha, dharma, sangha, donation, devata, precepts).
First one must draw a Bodhi tree in the centre. Under the tree is Amitabah Buddha. He is sitting on a lion throne supported by two lotuses. His body is golden in colour with right hand making abhayadana mudra. On the left of Buddha is the Mahā-sthāma-prāpta. On the right is the Arya Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva with his right hand comforting (that is index finger and thumb making a ring with other fingers erect making a leading hand gesture) while his left hand is holding a lotus. His body is white in colour. Under the Avalokitesvara one should draw Tara Bodhisatva. On top should draw svapna-nirdeśa (the four princes) making music as offering. One also should draw Brahmadeva holding Datura stramonium.
After the drawing is completed, it should be put in a ritual room and worship accordingly. One should offer lotus anoint with 3 sweets and perform homa for 100,000 times and follow by other karma rituals. If one is making the fundamental mudra and recite heart mantra and he goes to a township or a settlement, everyone who sees this person will be highly regarded. If he offer 100,000 lotus in front of the holy image (by reciting mantra once and then put one lotus in front), he shall see hidden treasures immediately. If he wants to dig out treasures, then he should make the fundamental mudra of white shirt Avalokitesvara and recite the mantra, then all those hidden treasures will emit lights and let the person do what he so wish desires. Also if he is collecting herbs in mountain ranges year long, then if he makes the mudra of terrorising all spirits; it is same as forbid all medicine to be found by others. Recite the mantra and he shall have medicine for longevity and accomplishment.
From the horse head mudra, when the accomplishment is achieved, the mountain is in the air.
From the moon body mudra, when the accomplishment is achieved, the water flows half.
From the robe mudra, the river water dries up.
From the 6 arm Avalokitesvara, the door of Asura opens.
From the 12 arm mudra, sarah (arrow) is overpowered.
From the 1000 arm mudra, the raja will come to you.
From the 4 face Avalokitesvara mudra, all government officials will yield to you.
From white shirt mother mudra, one can summons satri (woman).
Because one uses salt for homa, naga will come and pay their respects. All illnesses caused by spirits will be cured by sight or by touching (by reciting heart mantra). Blessed one, this heart mantra is as if wishes fulfilling gem. It is the king of all mantras. By casual recitation only one can achieve accomplishment.
At that time, Avalokitesvara told Buddha, “I now speak the supreme Vidhyahara mudras:
Both hand fingers lock in inward with index fingers erected but slightly bent; thumb and middle fingers touching each other forming circles. This is the fundamental mudra. The body mantra:
This mudra will part all sins.
The above fundamental mudra is for invitation. Bending and erecting index fingers a few times meaning to invite (please use mantra at the beginning).
From making this mudra, we become alert. The heart mantra means fulfilment.
If as above mudra but move both thumbs onto the back of middle finger tips; this is called the head mudra mantra:
If the thumbs move up further to the back of middle fingers, then this is called the top mudra mantra:
If both of the thumbs now touching the tip of index fingers forming tow circles; then this is the eye mudra mantra:
Same as the eye mudra, straighten up the thumbs and hide index fingers into the fists; this is called the armour mantra mudra:
If two thumbs hiding inside the fists, then this is the sword and mantra mudra:
Now, hold fists and hide thumbs inside the fists. This is called the row mudra mantra:
Straighten up both index and middle fingers and hold ring and fingers with the thumbs. This is called the arrow mudra mantra:
Cross ten fingers inwards as if making a net. Raise the mudra and rotate right; this is the upwards net mantra mudra:
Lock fingers inward but erect both thumbs. Move the mudra on top of your head and rotate right. This is the wall mantra mudra:
Like the wall that bents both thumbs to tough each others’ tips forming a circle. This is the supreme heart mudra mantra:
Remain with the supreme heart mudra. This is the alert heart mudra mantra:
Remain with the above mantra, but now move both thumbs with middle sections touching other. This is the heart happening mudra mantra:
Ten fingers crossing outside and opening up both palms as if a wheel; this is the wheel mudra mantra:
Blessed one, mudra as above is the mudra of three time supreme vidhyahara king. From the fundamental and changing mudra, together with mantra to empower these mudra; hence the practitioner and I (Avalokitesvara) are of no different (guru said treat your heart as if the heart of Avalokitesvara and the rest of the examples are the same). Blessed one, a practitioner must do the 10 paramita mudra three times a day to purify the sins of all sentient beings; and to make other similar mudra and recite fundamental heart mantra one time. Then the sins of one’s hundred thousand life will be purified. So, there is no fear if the sins of this life cannot be removed?”
“Secondly I will tell the 10 Paramita mudra:
One should open up his left palm facing up; with index finger touching the nail of ring finger in front of middle finger. This is the Sanparami mantra mudra:
Due to this mudra, all those in fear shall be protected. Sanparami perfected.
If one is cross fingers inward and forming a fist with index fingers erected like a needle. This is the precept paramita mantra mudra:
This mudra enables whoever has broken the precept becomes pure in holding precept.
If right ring finger is touching with right thumb with right index finger moving to and fro, this is ksanti paramita mudra mantra:
Due to this mudra, all fear will not harm the person. This is the perfection of endurance of shame.
If the middle right finger is erected, this is the virya paramita mudra mantra:
From this mudra one obtains the perfection of hardworking paramita.
If one be seated in lotus position, with right palm on top of left. This is the wisdom or jana paramita mudra mantra:
This mudra can remove all sins and perfect the jana paramita.
With back of hands touching each other, middle fingers hooking each other while both thumbs erected as if needles. This is the unlimited compassion heart mantra mudra:
From this mudra comes perfect unlimited compassion heart.
Wisdom abhayadana is the unlimited compassion heart mudra mantra:
From this mudra comes perfect unlimited compassion heart.
With small and ring fingers crossing and all six fingers erected and touching each other is the unlimited happiness heart mudra mantra:
From this mudra comes perfect unlimited happiness.
Fingers crossing internally each other forming a fist while both thumbs erect as if a needle; this is the unlimited giving mudra mantra:
From this mudra comes perfect unlimited offering heart.
If both of the thumbs and middle fingers touching other forming ring, this is the wisdom paramita mudra mantra:
From this mudra comes perfect wisdom paramita.
When both hands locking internally forming a fist while erecting both thumbs, this is the all encompass paramita heart mudra mantra:
Blessed one, it is from this 10 paramita mudra that one attains the satisfaction of dasabhumi (10 stages). When a practitioner performs this mudra every morning, then all his previous karma will be purified. All sentient beings will respect this practitioner when coming to meet him (this is the same as heart mudra of 12 arm Avalokitesvara mentioned in the rituals).”
Avalokitesvara again tell Buddha, “Blessed one, I will now talk about the common mudras use in Lotus Section. If one claps his hands with centre of the palms not touching. Let the ring finger tips, middle finger tips and thumb tips slightly apart. This is Lotus mantra mudra:
If left palm face up, index finger touches the ring finger nail, this is the mala mantra mudra:
Left fist with index finger raising is the Avalokitesvara staff mudra, left fist with index and middle finger erect, this is the Avalokitesvara bathtub mudra. If both of hand fingers crossing inward but erect but slightly bent both index finger tips, this is the horse head mudra (the said mantras for above three mudras are as mentioned).
If one cross fingers and binds inwards with both index fingers erected, this is the second heart mudra.
This is the unchanging second heart.
With both thumbs touching each other as if a ring forms the white shirt Avalokitesvara freedom mantra mudra.
This is the internal binding of thousand eyes mudra.
Blessed one, all these mudras accomplish all benefits. I have spoken these in other rituals as well. All of them can also accomplish the thousand hands and eyes methods.”
And again Avalokitesvara told Buddha about practitioner accomplishment mantra methods. In order to remove all obstacles and to protect ones pure heart, he should draw one square mandala on a clean wall. The artist must accept the 8 precepts. Mix all colours without using hide gum. In the centre of the mandala, draw one 100 petals lotus showing flower fetal and pistals. In the fetal inscribe the below mantra:
Draw mala on the right side of the lotus. On the left draw a water pot (kamandalu). On the top of the lotus, draw holy string and at the bottom of the lotus, draw a ritual staff. The completed mandala must be offered with incense and flower. All mudras should be done in front of this altar. If you follow this method, then all your ritual working and all mudras shall attain accomplishments.
“Blessed one, I am telling this powerful and yet of great bravery method. If I want to completely mention all sutras, I am afraid that I will not be able to complete the narration even after Aparana-kalpa-koti (a very long time). This method was mentioned by Vajra-garbha Bodhisattva before. The mantra of my tribe (lotus) and the mantra of vajra tribe, all depend on this method to attain accomplishment. All of the worldly heaven: Brahma, Narayana, Mahesvara, Kurma, Deva Kanya, Devata, Garuda and other ghosts and god mantras all depends on this method to attain accomplishment. If anyone who recite mantras in front of this mandala, then he will be able to enter all mandalas. He will be respected by all sentient beings, and serious sins shall be purified. When his life is coming to an end, Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva will appear in front of him and preach dharma to him. When he dies, he will be reborn into Tusita heaven. He will not be reborn into three evil paths. Or if here is anyone who do not believe in the 3 gems, they are misers and extremely stingy. Even this type of person can listen to this sutra momentarily until he can recite; they will also receive accomplishment soon. Moreover in case of a person who has pure fate in the three gems, the success will be even faster!”
At this time, the Buddha praised Avalokitesvara and said:
“Sadhu, sadhu, great bodhisattva,
the one with great compassion and resides in great sattva position;
now you have said the great king of mantra,
in the hope to benefit and make all sentient beings happy and believe.”
After Avalokitesvara completed mentioning this sutra, all great bodhisattvas and arahats, all devatas, nagas, yaksas, kinara, maha raga etc. were extremely happy and decided to follow this teaching.
