It is thought to be south of India. In Japan Tendai and the Pure Land sects concentrate on Amida but Kegon (Avatamsaka), Hosso (Yogacara) sects in the past and present encourage birth on Mt. Potalaka. I've made a vow to be born there and chant the Great Compassion Mantra (Maha Karuna Dharani Sutra) daily as part of my practices

You do realize that the Potala in Tibet is named after Kannon's mountain, the same for Mt. Putuo in China.
I read abit about Mount. Potalaka, supposedly a mythical mountain where Kannon Bosatsu resides. There was a historical monk that encourage practitioner to take wishes to be born there instead of the land of Amida. I am very interested in reading more on Mount. Potalaka. Can someone kindly point me the right direction with more resources or inserts or articles or even scriptures relating to Mount. Potalaka for further reading?
Thank you very much. I am utmost grateful.
