The theme of Avalokitesvara’s many manifestations was taken up in the tantra, in which the bodhisattva can be found in a number of forms. Two of the most popular are the 11-faced form and the 1000-armed form. Other popular tantric form is Cintamanicakra,
‘He who holds the wheel and the wish-fulfilling jewel’, or Cintamanicakra Avalokiteśvarā (Ch. Ruyilun Guanyin 如意輪觀音), the wish-fulfilling Avalokiteśvarā.
Ākarṣāya: attracted. In esoteric Buddhism ākasa, ākarsani, or ākasana ( 鉤召法) is the method to capture, summon the deities, or to call for one’s Yidam (本尊 a buddha or bodhisattva who is chosen as a focus for meditation). The others four methods are (1) Cantika (息災), dispersing calamities (2) Pustika (增益), for longevity, wisdom and prosperity (3) vacikarana (敬愛) for affection or blessing, and (4) Abhicikara (降服) to overcome the evil or enemy.
Cakravartin (Pali, cakkavatti): ‘cakra, chakra’, wheel, ‘vartin’, one who turns. A noun referring to an ideal universal kings whom rules ethically and benevolently over the entire world (轉輪聖王). In Buddhism which frequently refer to Buddha as a cakravāla cakravartin, an illuminator of dharma in all regions of the world. A wheel is often used symbolically to signify the various aspects of the Dharma. From the symbol of the turning wheel, a sign of universal sovereignty, comes the description of the Buddha as dharma-cakra-pravartayati, “he who sets the wheel of law in motion”. The Buddha’s first sermon delivered at the Dear Park, known in the commentaries as the Dharma-cakra-pravartana Sūtra (Pali, Dhamma-cakka-ppavattana Sutta) meaning ‘The Discourse of Setting in motion the Wheel of the Law’. In this dicourse the Buddha sets out the basis principle of the Middle Way (madhyamā-pratipad), and the teaching of the Four Noble Truths.
Cintāmaṇi: ‘Cintā’, thought, anxiety, desire; ‘Maṇi’, pearls, rubies, jewels. Cintāmaṇi, a legendary magical jewel which spontaneous provides its owner with whatever he wishes for. It can create wealth, drive away evil, cure illness, purify water, and perform other marvels. It is often used as a symbolic image for the activities of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in the Mahāyāna, or the Dharma and its marvelous powers.
Oṃ (Aum): in the Hindu sacred scriptures the Upanishads 奧義書, it symbolizes the experience of the complete realization of the divine through which the narrow confines of the ego are shattered. In Mahayana means oneness with the Supreme, the merging of the physical being with the spiritual, the scared syllable appears as a mystic sound, regarded as the basis of every mantra. In Vajrayana the three vowels A-U-M signify the body, speech and mind.
Huṃ: signifies the holy mind of all the Buddha’s, in Vajrayana, it represents vajra (indestructible diamond) power or vajra energy. ‘Phaṭ’, originally is the sound of explosion, known as the destruction Mantra. In this context, the holy mind to destroy the outer, inner and secret obstacles (negative distractions) so that the practitioner may have success.
