Tibetan Buddhist chant - Om Mani Padme Hum

Avalokiteśvara or Padmapani is a bodhisattva who embodies the compassion of all Buddhas. This bodhisattva is variably depicted, described and portrayed in different cultures as either female or male. In Tibet, he is known as Chenrezik, and in Cambodia as អវលោកិតេស្វរៈ. In Chinese Buddhism, Avalokiteśvara has evolved into the somewhat different female figure Guanyin. In Japan this figure is known as Kanzeon or Kannon.
