Keyword甘露施餓鬼=The Hungry ghost Receiving Amrita; 七寶施貧兒=The Beggar having Saptaratna; 千手千眼觀音=The Thousand-eyed and Thousand-armed Avalokiteshvara; 十一面觀音=Eleven-faced Avalokiteshvara

There are often the pair of images of the hungry ghost receiving Amrita and the beggar having Saptaratna appears on flanking of Avalokiteshvara,especially found in the illustrations to thousand-eyed and thousand-armed Avalokiteshvara or the illustrations to the eleven-faces Avalokiteshvara,but we could not find any definite narration from the two sūtras.By a careful textual research,this article draws a conclusion that those images should be created under influences from Sahasrabāhu-sahasrāk a-mahā-karu ika -h idaya-dhāra ī, Ekada amukhāvalokite vara-bodhisattva-h idaya-mantrādhyāya-kalpa-sūtra and Sūtra on the dhāranī-mantra for asking the Bodhisattvāvalokite vara to counteract the injury of poison.
