This is a photograph of the wall painting of Avalokiteshvar ( Also called Shakshat Para
Brahman or The Sun ) from the caves of Ajanta in INDIA. These caves are 1500 years old. This
is perhaps the very first image of Avalokiteshvar.

He is also called Padmapani in India, Chenresi in Tibet, Kwan Yin in China and Kannon in

Avalokiteshvar, a Sanskrit word, translates as " The Lord Who Looks Down". That is, he
governs or looks after the World or the Universe. He is the personification of the Primal Being
(Brahman) or the Universal Being or the Limitless Eternal or the Ultimate Cause of the
Universe. THAT ONE, WHO IS WITHOUT A SECOND, the Limitless Eternal that is, has no
names and/or forms (namrupa) as well as that One is not available to bodily senses or mind. It
is as it is, meaning that it has no attributes and it is not possible to say that it is "this" or it is
"that", as well as it is "love" or it is "compassion". It can only be described by "No, no" (that is by
protesting against every attribute). That One, from which proceed the Origin(Brahma, the
creator), Subsistence(Vishnu, the preserver) and Dissolution(Shiva, the destroyer) of the world,
which world is differentiated by names and forms, contains many agents and enjoyers, and is
the abode of fruits or effects, caused by former actions, these fruits having their definite places,
times and causes, and the nature of whose arrangement can not be conceived by the mind-that
cause is Brahman or the Primal Being. It is that One through whose grace deeds are followed
by rewards and souls finally obtain salvation or liberation.

Avalokiteshvar is shown here with the symbolism of the Sun. The Sun is considered the holder
of lotus since the sunrays bring about blossoming of lotus. Avalokiteshvar, also known as
Padmapani which translates as the "Holder of Lotus or One with Lotus in his hand". The
concept of the Limitless Eternal or Lord (personified here) looking down or governing his
creation goes back to the Rig-Veda in the famous creation hymn called Nasadiya.

The Swastika is a Sanskrit word.It means "Good Luck".It is an auspicious sign just as the SUN
is the symbol of Prosperity and Auspicious time. The Sun and The Metaphysical Being of the
Vedas have too much in common. Because of these likenesses, the metaphor used is"The
Brahman is the SUN".The SUN is the only one that enjoys this highest status. The Swastika is the
symbol of the  SUN.
The other metaphors used for the SUN are "The Sun is the eye of the world and The Sun is the
light of the world".
The Six-Pointed Star is the Tantrik Symbol. The star is postulated to be unchanging & fixed or
without motion. The Ultimate Being (Brahman) doesn't change because it is perfect,nor does it get
an impulse to change from others, since it is secondless or without a second. So the unmoving and
unchanging star is an excellent metaphor for the Ultimate Being (BRAHMAN).

Brahman is the efficient cause of the Universe. The material cause doesn't exist. In otherword,
There is no ultimate particle!!!!...


"Akartakarta" a Sanskrit word translates as " Actorless Actor".The enlightened one has no sense of
"I", "My", "Mine" or "Me". In otherwords, he is totally aloof from all his actions,  good or bad as well
as his mind, body or senses. He is only one with Brahman, everything else he is aloof from. Actions
performed by such a being are Egoless Actions. Hence he is called

ॐ भूर्भुवः स्वः। तत् सवितुर्वरेण्यम्। भर्गो देवस्य धीमहि। धियो यो नः प्रचोदयात्।

This mantra is called Gayatri mantra and is a very popular one. It is from Rig Veda. Which
translates as " Let us adore the supremacy of that divine Sun (Savitar), the godhead who
illuminates all, who recreates all, from whom all proceed, to whom all must return,
whom we invoke to direct our understandings aright in our progress toward his holy seat."
The above mantra can be broken up into two

Whence this creation has arisen—perhaps it formed itself, or
perhaps it did not—the one who looks down on it, in the highest
heaven, only he knows—or perhaps he does not know.
