Avalokiteswar, in his manifestation with eleven heads, is Samantamukha or the ‘All sided one’ the god who looks in every direction to protect all creature. In this form he is known as Ekadas Lokeswar. Avalokiteswara “The Compassionate one”, descended into hell converted the wicked, liberated them, and conducted them to Sukhavati, the paradise of his spiritual father, Amitabha. Avalokiteswar discovered that for every culprit converted and liberated another instantly took his place and 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 head on the body of his spiritual son, Avalokiteswara, in three tiers heads of three with the tenth head on top and his own image above them all. Thus, the “One looking Lord” was endowed with twenty two eyes instead of two, to see all suffering, and eleven brains instead of one, to conerntrate on the best means of saving mankind. The three tiers of heads indiczte that Avalokiteswara looks down on the three world, world of desire, world of live form and world of no form.
