Avalokiteśvara is a bodhisattva who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas. Avalokiteśvara has made a great vow to assist sentient beings in times of difficulty, and to postpone his own Buddhahood until he has assisted every sentient being in achieving Nirvāṇa. One prominent Buddhist story tells of Amitabha Buddha, seeing his plight, gives him eleven heads with which to hear the cries of the suffering and invests him with a thousand arms with which to aid the suffering multitudes.
"Peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see. Every breath we take, every step we take, can be filled with peace, joy, and serenity. The question is whether or not we are in touch with it. We need only to be awake, alive in the present moment." ~ Thich Nhat Hanh ~
