Description

Samantabhadra also known as Kuan Yin and Padmapani is one of the four biggest bodhisattvas in Buddhism. She is an image of merit and fortune and serves as the right hand of Shakyamuni Buddha.

The iconography of Kuan Yin depicts her in many forms, each one revealing a unique aspect of her merciful presence. Here she is portrayed seated on a beautiful elephant atop a single lotus base. She wears a beautiful flowing robe and ornaments symbolic of her virtues. Her right hand is in the vitarka mudra while her left hand holds a blooming lotus flower. Her crown depicts the image of Amitabha Buddha, the most ancient Buddha among the Dhyani Buddhas.

About Kuan Yin:
Kwan Yin (also spelled Kuan Yin, Quan Yin or Guan 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, the Tibetan and Nepalese God of Compassion. As a Bodhisattva, she has chosen to put off her complete, unexcelled, perfect enlightenment for the benefit of beings everywhere, and will wait as long as there is one being who is not enlightened.
