When a person wish to devote oneself to the Avalokitesvara, the Compassionate One, he must make the following 10 vows and 6 resolutions:


Namo Avalokitesvara Bodhisattvaya! May I quickly master all Buddhist teachings.

Namo Avalokitesvara Bodhisattvaya! May I quickly attain the wisdom-eye.

Namo Avalokitesvara Bodhisattvaya! May I quickly deliver all sentient beings.

Namo Avalokitesvara Bodhisattvaya! May I quickly learn all skillful means.

Namo Avalokitesvara Bodhisattvaya! May I quickly board the ship of Prajna-paramita.

Namo Avalokitesvara Bodhisattvaya! May I quickly cross the sea of Samsara.

Namo Avalokitesvara Bodhisattvaya! May I quickly achieve Sila (morality) and Samadhi (concentration).

Namo Avalokitesvara Bodhisattvaya! May I quickly reach the shores of Nirvana.

Namo Avalokitesvara Bodhisattvaya! May I quickly dwell in the house of the Unborn.

Namo Avalokitesvara Bodhisattvaya! May I quickly realize the Dharmakaya (body of Truth).

If I must head for the mountain of sabres, let the mountain crumble.

If I must head for the sea of fire, let the sea dry up.

If I must head for the Hells, let the hells be destroyed.

If I must head for the Peta (ghost) realm, let all their hunger be fulfilled.

If I must head for the Asura (titan) realm, let all their hatred be conquered.

If I must head for the Animal realm, let all animals become wise.
