Samantabhadra-uw9.jpg

Samantabhadra (Skt.; Tib. ཀུན་ཏུ་བཟང་པོ་, Kuntuzangpo; Wyl. kun tu bzang po) is one of the eight great bodhisattvas, renowned for the vastness of his offerings. He is depicted as reddish-green in colour, and holding a corn-ear of jewels as a sign that he fulfills the wishes of all beings. His story is recounted in the Gandavyuha Sutra, which includes his famous prayer of aspiration, Samantabhadra's Aspiration to Good Actions.
