Samantabhadra or Universal Virtue (Samanta means, “universally extending” and Bhadra means “great virtue”), known to the Chinese as Pu Hsien/Puxian and Fugen to the Japanese is the personification of love, sacred activity, virtue, diligent training, and patience. In the Chinese Pantheon, she is seen in the triad with Kuan Yin (Compassion) and Wen-Shu (Wisdom) as the Three Precious Bodhisattvas whose qualities make up the Buddha’s Essence. In Mahayana Buddhism, Samantabhadra represents “Great Practice” and “Great Conduct.” Both of these attributes result from the fact that Samantabhadra made Ten Great Vows and, more importantly, followed through on them. A vow is worthless if it is not put into practice. As her name suggests, Samantabhadra extends such great compassion that every sentient being is benefited and her practice so extensive and profound that all virtue is perfected.
Mirrors have been used by many cultures traditionally to protect as well as symbolically swipe away all obstacles to success and attract all kinds of good fortune.

This mirror is incredibly powerful for harnessing and channeling the enormous blessings of Puxian Pusa into your life.
