Homage to Guanyin of Moon and Water


Listen to this Guan Yin Homage in Chinese

"If there are those that can be liberated by a Pratyeka Buddha, the Bodhisattva will appear in this form to teach them the dharma."

Who appears as 辟支佛身 ( pìzhī fú shēn ) a Pratyeka Buddha.

This form is standing on a lotus petal floating on water with clasped palms, gazing at the moon.

It is the same as Udakasri Avalokitesvara of the Garbhakosa mandala.

A Pratyeka Buddha is a silent saint who is enlightened from realizing the 12 causal links of existence.

This Pratyeka Buddha form is shown to be able to realize the truth of dependent origination by gazing at the moon observing its reflection in the water.
