In the early Buddhist scriptures, most of them were translated from Sanskrit “Avalokitasvara”, which means “peeping sound” and “present sound”. Buddha”.

Master Xuanzang and other translators in the Tang Dynasty translated it from the Sanskrit “Avalokiteśvara” as “Avalokiteśvara”. “Avalokita” means “view”, and “iśvara” means “freedom”, which means to be at ease by contemplating the emptiness of one’s own nature. Therefore, Xuanzang translated it as Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, which can be seen in today’s “Prajna Heart Sutra”.

Traditionally, it is believed that because of the word “Shi” in the real name of Emperor Taizong Li Shimin of the Tang Dynasty, in order to avoid taboo, “Guanyin Bodhisattva” was changed to “Guanyin Bodhisattva” at that time, but there are also sayings that “Guanyin Bodhisattva” is just the abbreviation of “Guanyin Bodhisattva”. . Master Qingliang Chengguan of the Tang Dynasty pointed out that there were two different names in ancient Sanskrit texts. In the ancient manuscripts unearthed in Xinjiang in 1927, अवलोकितसवर (Avalokitasvara) was the name of Guanyin Bodhisattva, which confirmed his statement. “Savara” (स्वर svara) means “sound”, and Avalokitasvara can be translated as “Avalokitesvara”.

You can get rid of hatred. If you are too stupid, you can always recite and respect Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva, and you will get rid of ignorance.”

Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva is written in Tibetan as སྤྱན་རས་གཟིགས་དབང་ཕྱུག (Tibetan pinyin: Jänräsigwangchug), which also means “Avalokitesvara”, which is the same as translated by Master Xuanzang and other translators. Because the Tibetan word “Guanzizai” has a total of five Tibetan syllables, Tibetan written and spoken languages are usually abbreviated as “Jairaisig” (“view”, “eye vision”)” with three syllables, and “wangjug” (“comfort”) is omitted. )” two syllables.

The White-clothed Avalokitesvara, White-clothed Dashi, and Avalokitesvara, which are called by Buddhism, Taoism and even folk beliefs in Greater China, are taken from Pāndara vāsinī of the Tantric belief in the Tang Dynasty, which is the female Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva.
