Invocation of the Bodhisattva of Compassion

Invocation of the Bodhisattva of Compassion
(Invocation of Kanzeon/Quanyin/Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion
—whose name means “the one who beholds (or absorbs) the sounds/cries of the world.”)

Absorbing world sounds
awakens a buddha right here!
This buddha,
the source of compassion.
This buddha
receives only compassion.
Buddha, Dharma, Sangha—
just compassion.
Thus, the pure heart
always rejoices.
In the light, recall this.
In the dark, recall this.
Moment after moment
the true heart arises.
Time after time
there is nothing but this.
