Dear Buddhist friends!!
I just want to give my opinion, I think that all the version is the Compasionate Mantra.
Because Avalokitesvara Bodhisatva can manifest in so many forms.
Each mantra have it own purpose. So if you want to know properly, you must read the sutra, that content this Mantra.
For example Maha Karuna Dharani (Ta Pei Jou), to know more about this mantra, you should read "Maha Karuna Dharani Sutra/ Ta Pei Sin To Lo Ni Cing"
As far I know the "Malaysian Buddhist Society Dharmafarer" had published a book titled Avalokitesvara, that may be can help you to know more.
May be this can help you!!!!!!
