The Absolute Nature Of This Mind Is Avalokiteśvara
Excerpt from Khyentse Rinpoche talk:
"The absolute nature of this mind is Avalokiteśvara. It's beyond form, beyond colour, beyond shape, beyond any conceptions. Actually, for this reason, to express that Avalokiteśvara is beyond form, beyond colour, beyond shape, many times we also have different varieties of Avalokiteśvara; with 1000 arms, with four arms, with eleven heads, as woman, as man, as a pig, as birds, everything. There is Avalokiteśvara is the form of a horse. Sometimes in order to express the inexpressible we have to express in many myriad ways. When I discovered that Avalokiteśvara is a female in China, I was so happy. This alone proves the non duality of Avalokiteśvara."
