Homage to Guanyin Holding the Lotus


Listen to this Guan Yin Homage in Chinese

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

Who appears as a 童男童女身 ( tóngnán tóngnǚ shēn ) minors of both sexes.

This form, who wears a crown, is the same as Bodhisattva padmapani of the garbhakosa.

She stands on a floating lotus leaf, with both hands holding a long stalk of two lotuses, one bloomed and the other half-bloomed.

It symbolizes the fully enlightened mind together with the mind journeying towards enlightenment.

As we may know, this lotus is a symbol of the Bodhisattva's fundamental vow.
