From these two simple sentences, we can understand that Amitabha Buddha and Guanyin Bodhisattva are generally respected by our people. In particular, Jinrong, the statue of Guanyin Bodhisattva, is worshipped in cities, villages, ships, and places where there are almost people. It is also possible to see the relationship between Guanyin Bodhisattva and our people. It is indeed very deep.
Guanyin Bodhisattva is called "Guanyin" because of its 'sound and pain'. Because the Bodhisattva is comfortable, comfortable, comfortable, and comfortable, it is also known as 'viewing'. Bodhisattva also has many names such as 'Shiwuwei', 'Great Sadness Bodhisattva', 'Yuan Tong Da Shi', and 'Nanhai Guanyin'. In the "Great Tragedy Toroni Sutra", it is recorded that the Bodhisattva had become a Buddha before the immeasurable robbery, and the number was "Zhengfa Mingru". It used compassion to wish to drive mercy and then came to be a predestined being. In the "Lotus Lotus Sutra. In the Guanyin Bodhisattva Samphon, it is said in detail that this Bodhisattva is in the interests of all beings in the world.
Like the biography of the Guanyin Bodhisattva, the "Samphon" describes the Bodhisattva's adaptation, compassion, divine power, and the deeds of all beings in the land. In the scriptures, the Buddha had many praises for the vast virtues of Guanyin Bodhisattva's compassion in the world, and he was touched by the Buddha to provide support. From the dialogue in the scriptures, what is presented is a model of the Holy One who is full of grief and wisdom.
For example, if you wholeheartedly call the name of Guanyin Bodhisattva, you can satisfy the wish of those who pray for children and children: 'If there is a woman, she wants to ask for a man and worship to provide Guanyin Bodhisattva, she will be the wise man of Shengfude; If you want to ask for a woman, you will have a straight daughter. "It can also keep all beings away from the three evils: 'If there are more sentient beings than lust, often pay tribute to the Guanyin Bodhisattva, you will have to leave; If you are more than one person, you will have to pay tribute to the Guanyin Bodhisattva; If you are stupid and stupid, you often pay tribute to the Guanyin Bodhisattva and you have to leave. Even it can be exempted from seven kinds of disasters such as fire, water, wind, knife, ghost, prison, and thief. In short, if the Holy number of the Bodhisattva is scrupulously held, the Bodhisattva can be strengthened with its compassion, wisdom, and fierce power to pray, that is, to release the trouble. Such as the cloud: "All beings trapped in the Ah, endless suffering, Guanyin wonderful intelligence, can save the world suffering. '
In addition to giving sentient beings a sense of induction, the Bodhisattva can also be said to be based on the opportunities of all beings. As stated in the "Samphon": The Buddha's body should be the right person, that is, the Buddha's body; It should be said that the king is fit, that is, the current king; Even the monks, bhiksuni, laymen, women, boys, and virgins should be used as arguments, etc., and the thirty-three should be transformed into sentient beings. The so-called "thousands of prayers should be thousands." The sea often makes a boat.
For the principles of the belief and induction of Guanyin Bodhisattva, we should have the same experience as the "Bodhisattva Cool Moon" described in the "Hua Yan Jing". That is, when he heard the name of the Guanyin Bodhisattva, he said in his mouth that he had to perform the worship icon. At the same time, he had to give birth to a pure heart to remove all the wishful thoughts in his heart. Then the heart of Guanyin is my heart. My heart and bodhisattvas are one. Naturally, we can 'thousands of rivers and rivers, thousands of miles without clouds'.
Due to the popularity of Guanyin's beliefs and the prayers of all beings, the sensing of Bodhisattva shows various kinds of different forms to save the suffering and rescue, so the statues of Guanyin Bodhisattva are numerous. Such as 'Baiyiguanyin', 'Zhulin Guanyin', 'Fish Basket Guanyin', 'Water Moon Guanyin', 'Glass Guanyin', '<UNK> <UNK> Guanyin', 'Send Goddess of Mercy', 'Malangfuguanyin', 'Eleven Guanyin', 'Thousands of Hands' Guanyin 'and so on. Most of them show their appearance as solemn and beautiful women. Therefore, they say that Guanyin Bodhisattva is a female person. In fact, the image of Guanyin Bodhisattva is not the same because it should be transformed into a square, so the appearance is not the same. The Buddha should pray for all beings and sense different identities as a convenience. Divided by the king, women, etc., who are predestined beings, under the necessary circumstances, the Bodhisattva also shows the appearance of heaven, King Kong, Ashura, and even dragons, ghosts, snakes, birds, etc., in order to capture all beings. Therefore, believers do not need to distinguish between men and women on the foreign minister.
The relief given by Guanyin Bodhisattva to the world is shown everywhere. He uses fourteen kinds of fearless, thousands of eyes, and compassion to save all beings. For example: 'Tang Wenzong ate clams, and the Bodhisattva appeared to be transformed'. 'When the Song Dynasty Yongjue Zen Master was imprisoned, he said that he read the Guanyin Bodhisattva and the knife was broken.' When Mr. Sun Yat-sen visited Putuo Mountain, he witnessed the Bodhisattva's appearance of spiritual deeds. ', ` The unfilial son of slaughtering for the industry, when worshipping the South China Sea, Meng Guanyin instructed "anti-dressing, falling shoes, that is, Guanyin's old mother", etc., such as the deeds of bodhicization of sentient beings, in the "Guanyin Spiritual Record", many.
The true meaning of our people's belief in Guanyin Bodhisattva lies in 'reading Guanyin, worshipping Guanyin, and making a Guanyin myself'. The Guanyin Bodhisattva can give fearlessness to all beings. We should also imitate the Bodhisattva and strengthen the promotion of our own power. We have compassion, wisdom, and courage to be the protectors of all beings. Accordingly:
For those who are depressed and frustrated, they should follow the Buddha's encouragement.
For those who are harmed by others, the disaster should be rescued by the Bodhisattva.
For those who have encountered setbacks and difficulties, they should follow the Bodhisattva's help.
For those who have gone astray and lost their way, they should follow the guidance of the Bodhisattva.
