In Japanese Buddhist tradition, Naraen-kengo (morphing of Narayana) is a minor god. The gods and goddesses of India somehow managed to permeate as far as Japan in a morphed, mutated, and downgraded forms. They are all the way down from the top which is occupied by The Buddha and Bodhisattvas (a person who attained enlightenment or Supreme Knowledge). The Supreme Persona and Boddhisattva of perfect compassion in Japanese Buddhist tradition is Kannon, which means Ju-Ichimen Senju-Kannon--EkaDasamukhasahasrabhuja-Avalokite-svara. (see image below.) This long name is from Sanskrit. Eka = one, Dasa = ten, mukha = face, sahasra = one thousand, bhuja = arms, Avalokitesvara = down look Lord (the Lord who looks down from above. The Lord looking down to Svara (sound, instead of esvara or Isvara) means the 'Sound Perceiver' who hears the cries of sentient beings in need of help. The Northern Buddhists are of the belief that Avalakitesvara made a pledge that He will manifest himself to every creature in this universe and deliver them from sin. According to Lotus Sutra in Chinese tradition, "Avalokitesvara has the ability to assume any form required for the moment to relieve suffering and grant progeny and is represented as a beautiful, white-robed woman." Avalokitesvara does not rest until she delivers all sentient beings from Samsara, miseries of life on earth.
