    Avalokiteshvara is the bodhisattva who hears the cries of the world and embodies the compassion of the Buddhas.

    When we see and hear the suffering of others and respond to that suffering, we are the heads and arms of the bodhisattva. A Bodhisattva is one who delays enlightenment until all beings have been delivered of suffering. Many arms for the many ways to heal suffering.
