The Longest Mantra of Compassion

On 21 July 2008, equivalent to 6th month 19th day of the chinese lunar calendar, I received an email with an attached mantra that I had been seeking for several months. This is the longest mantra of Avalokiteshvara and it is even longer than the sanskrit verson of the dharani taught by Ven. Master Hsuan Hua.

The fact that I received it on that day which is the Chinese Mahayana's holy day marking Kuan Yin's Enlightenment, adds to the significance of the compassion mantra. I first heard it recited by Kyabje Lama Zopa and had been seeking it all over the internet. This is just so wonderful!
