The Dalai Lama as an incarnation of Avalokiteshvara

 

Though His Holiness is most humble in his private reply to the query of his standing as an emanation of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, his actions converse loudest on this repect. In Tibetan Buddhist perception there’s a saying, “All males are Avalokiteshvara and all ladies are Tara” — which is a lofty idea embracing the reality of our common Buddha Nature. With the Dalai Lama, his standing as an emanation of the Buddha of Compassion is a extra “literal” one.

“It’s tough for me to say undoubtedly. Except I’m engaged in a meditative effort, resembling following my life again, breath by breath, I couldn’t say precisely. We consider that there are 4 forms of rebirth. One is the frequent sort whereby, a being is helpless to find out his or her rebirth, however solely reincarnates in dependence on the character of previous actions. The alternative is that of a completely enlightened Buddha, who merely manifests a bodily kind to assist others. On this case, it’s clear that the individual is Buddha. A 3rd is one who, as a consequence of previous non secular attainment, can select, or a minimum of affect, the place and state of affairs of rebirth. The fourth known as a blessed manifestation. On this, the individual is blessed past his regular capability to carry out useful features, resembling instructing faith. For this final sort of beginning, the individual’s needs in earlier lives to assist others will need to have been very robust. They receive such empowerment. Although some appear extra possible than others, I can not undoubtedly say which I’m.” [1]
