The multiple heads and multiple arms of Avalokiteshvara are the greatest possible pictorial multiplication of the Mahayana ideal of the great compassion at work in all six worlds. These "all sided" forms, as it were, see the suffering in all spheres of the world simultaneously and can similarly extend helping hands in a thousand directions in symbolic intervention.

The origin of the eleven-headed form of Avalokiteshvara is explained in the following legend:

Avalokiteshvara, the all pitying bodhisattva, descended into hell, converted the wicked, liberated them, and conducted them to Sukhavati, the paradise of his spiritual father, Amitabha.

He discovered, however, to his dismay, that for every culprit converted and liberated, another instantly took his place. Legend claims that his head split into ten pieces from grief and despair on discovering the extent of wickedness in the world, and the utter hopelessness of saving all mankind. Amitabha caused each piece to become a head, and placed the heads on the body of his spiritual son, Avalokitesvara. Nine of the heads have benign faces and are depicted in three rows; the tenth has an angry face, while the head at the top is that of Amitabha.

All the heads, except that of Amitabha, is crowned. In contrast to the floral crowns of the three rows of heads, the top wrathful head is adorned with a crown of skulls.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
