Avalokiteshvara is the Sanskrit title of the Lord, our Saviour. Other titles from different cultures that are today applied to the Lord are Christ, Lokeshvara, World Saviour, Lord of Hosts and god of gods (since He appears to people “in the form most suitable for them at the time, even as any of the gods, or a woman, or an animal”).
The title Avalokiteshvara was imposed on the Lord by the Father. It translates to something like, The Lord who perceives the world and hears the pleas of all sentient beings.
How does the Lord save soul beings?
The Lord is a highly advanced spiritual being with immense compassion for us and our quest in the school of life. He and his co-worker spiritual beings assist anyone with spiritual mind, notwithstanding race, creed or religion and help them with guidance, wisdom, and spiritual nurture to advance in the school of life. Communication with the Lord and angels is eased with good meditation technique that stills body mind to allow soul and spirit to communicate.
Avalokiteshvara first appeared in history during the latter half of the first century CE. This was the time of the promised return of the glorified lord Iesous who had ascended to Sukhavati about 40 years earlier. Thousands of Iesous' Wayist followers migrated to Kashmir and Srinagar to await the so-called 2nd coming of Christ / the World Saviour.
The incoming of the Lord coincided with the sudden appearance of the scripture, The Lotus Sutra which explains in chapter 25, all about the magnificent powers held by the glorified son of God our Father in Heaven.
