Listen to this Guan Yin Homage in Chinese

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

Who appears as 大自在天身) ( dà zìzai tiān shēn ) Mahesvara.

Mahesvara is originally Shiva of the Hindu faith, but after being converted by the Buddha she has since become a guardian deity. She is also thought to be the highest deity in the realm of form, thus very exalted in power and virtue.

This form stands on a mountain top with both hands crossed and concealed in her robes.

This form is so called because its universal and equal compassion is able to benefit all sentient beings, just as the power and virtue of Mahesvara is known by all.
