In Sanskrit, the name Avalokiteshvara refers to the power of seeing. This enlightened figure is never blind to the suffering of any living being. Avalokiteshvara is sometimes called the Bodhisattva of Great Compassion-he is one who works to create well-being in others.
There was not just one Aztec calendar; there were two. The xiuhpohualli (year count) had 365 days and was a solar and agricultural calendar. The tonalpohualli (day count) calendar had 260 days and was the sacred calendar, used for divination. Together the two calendars formed a fifty-twoyear century, the Calendar Round. In Aztec cosmology the equilibrium of the universe is always in danger, and the tonalpohualli was created to bring balance. The notion that everything consists of two opposing forces was essential to the Aztecs.
