Help with the name "Lepra King"

Postby Hanzze » Tue Jan 25, 2011 11:29 am

Dear friends,

there is the famous Jayavarman VII which was told as a reincarnation of (Avaloketeshva/Chenresi) in the Khmer Empire. Sometimes he is also told as the "Lepra King" a Bodhisattva that leads to big "destroying" to let the life goes on in a new way. (don't take it word by word...)

Do anyone knows about the therm "lepra king" and a connection to the Bodhisattva of Compassion?

_/\_
thanks a lot
Just that! :-)
