    Description

    Kwan Yin (also spelled Kuan Yin or Quan Yin), is known as the Goddess of Compassion, and she is one of the most popular deities in all of Asia. Her name in Chinese roughly translates to "The One who Hears the Cries of the World". Many believe that she is the female representation of Avalokiteshvara, who is the Tibetan and Nepalese God of Compassion. As a bodhisattva, she has chosen to put off her perfect enlightenment for the benefit of beings everywhere, and she will wait as long as there is one being who is not enlightened. This tall statue of Kwan Yin is holding a vase of nectar. The vase represents wisdom quenching the thirst of ignorance. The nectar also represents the relieving of suffering since nectar is the food of hungry ghosts. Her other hand is in the abhaya mudra, the gesture of discussion and debate which indicates communication and the explanation of the Dharma. The tip of the thumb and index finger touch, this being the gesture of great compassion. She stands on a blooming lotus. A beautiful representation of Kwan Yin, the Goddess of compassion!
