Homage to Guanyin in a White Robe


Listen to this Guan Yin Homage in Chinese

"If there are those that can be liberated by a Bhikku or Bhikkuni, the Bodhisattva will appear in these forms to teach them the dharma."

Who appears as 比丘比丘尼身 ( bǐqiū bǐqiūní shēn ) a Bhikku or Bhikkuni ( Buddhist monk Buddhist nun ).

This form is seated in meditation on a rock wearing a white robe.

It is the same as Pandaravasini Avalokitesvara of the Garbhadhatu mandala.

A Bhikku or Bhikkuni is an ordained disciple of the Buddha.

White symbolizes the pure undefiled heart of enlightenment - the Bodhicitta.

Incidentally, this Guanyin is also called the "Mother-form," as almost all Chinese depictions of Guanyin are modelled in this image.
