Avalokitesvara took a vow never to rest him until he freed all sentient beings from suffering. Despite strenuous effort he found the task too difficult and he basically fell to pieces. His arms shattered and it head split into eleven pieces. Amitabha Buddha witnessing his plight gave him eleven heads one for each piece that his original head had split into. Buddha Amitabha picked up all the pieces of his body and the head. At the same time he said, "This happened because of your prayer. You deserve the praise of all Buddhas since your prayer was valuable. Then he blessed his broken heads into eleven faces and he sat upon those heads and his broken body into one thousand hands like one thousand petals of the lotus. Thereafter he said, "I bow to you because your thousand hands are the hands of the thousand universal emperors and those eyes in each of the palms of the hands are the eyes of one thousand Buddhas who will appear in this fortunate aeon. After that Avalokiteshvara appeared in many different forms in order to tame the suffering sentient beings and he successfully accomplished many events.

Service and delivery of this first Mandala I bought from Lucky Thanka was really fast and the updates were brilliant.
This Mandala is simply beautiful and I am so pleased with it.
I am very happy with the quality of the seeds and i use it to count my mantra as it has 21 bodhi, which is so difficult to fine else where. Besides that Prateek’s impeccable service and advice is an incentive for me to purchase items from him. I will gladly recommend this website to you.
