    From the 12th century on, however, in much of Asia Avalokiteshvara took the form of a mother-goddess of mercy. It is the single most important aspect, to make real progress. When our consciousness misperceives, we build attachment. The fifth syllable is Me, which is painted in red and is related with fire.

    Attachment is involved with all of them, ignorance is involved with all of them. The continual addiction to lust is a continual production of suffering, and thus if you are serious about conquering suffering, about helping others, you have to deal with lust. This is why initiates in traditions were converted into monks and nuns, to enter into a period of preparation in which they retained that energy, were not hypnotized by any form of lust or distraction sexually, and could learn to work with that energy directly, until the time came when they were prepared to enter into a relationship to fully harness that energy. The king is cured and goes to Fragrant Mountain to give thanks.

    That is why "the Jewel in the Lotus" is important, but this meaning has not taught publicly until recently. To followers of Tibetan Buddhism, the compassionate Buddha is known as Chenrezig — who appears as four armed and thousand armed. If you are really feeling and sensing the presence of your Divine Mother, you cannot do anything unethical, it is impossible. We all have that potential.
