In traditional portraits, Avalokitesvara holds Yang Zhi in his right hand and drags the bottle with his left hand. The dew in the bottle is called Yang Zhi manna. The Yangzhi manna in Guanyin Bodhisattva's hand will bring people luck and auspiciousness.
In ancient books, it was recorded that Avalokitesvara used the willow vase in his hand to take the sea water from the East China Sea to save the people in the dry area.
Later generations thought the story was important. They thought that this dessert could help people eliminate the heat in the summer and be beneficial to people, so they named it Yangzhi manna.
