The Great Compassion Repentance Ceremony

The Great Compassion Mantra means, “Thousand-arms and thousand-eyes Avalokitesvera Bodhisattva’s all embracing great compassion Dharani.” The mantra is eighty-four phrases long. Some of the benefits often associated with the Great Compassion Mantra are rebirth into higher realms, the meeting of beneficial acquaintances, bountiful food and wealth, gaining great respect, and the opportunity to learn Buddhist teachings. Moreover, those who recite this mantra will not suffer death by starvation, disease, poison, flood, or fire. Water blessed with the Great Compassion Mantra is called the Great Compassion Water, and is taken by devotees for its spiritually cleansing qualities. Buddhists believe that faith in Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva not only improves the conditions of this life, but also improves the chances of rebirth into the Western Pure land.
