Mantra of Avalokiteshvara

It’s a cool Saturday morning here in Nonthaburi where I live. I would like now to present a chant of the long mantra of Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. Here is the whole text of the chant in Sanskrit:

Namo ratnatryaye namah aryajnana sagar vairocana vyuharajaya tathagatayah arhate samyaksambuddhayah;
namah sarva tathagatebhyah arhatebhyah samyaksambuddhebhyah;
namah arya avaoliketshvaraya bodhisattvayah mahasattvayah mahakarunikakayah;
tadyatha: om dhara dhara dhiri dhiri dhuru dhuru itiye vitiye cale cale pracale pracale kusume kusumvaraye ili mili cetam jvalam apnaye svaha.

The text is chanted in the style of Chinese music. May all sentient beings attain the status of Avalokiteshvara, one who is full of great compassion!
