A very tall statue of Kuan Yin outside the Vietnamese Buddhist temple on my street, in San Diego, California.
Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion, is a manifestation of the Divine Mother and serves mankind in much the same way as Mother Mary. In her hands, Kuan Yin may hold a vase with water, ( the dew of compassion) which has the quality of removing suffering, purifying the defilements of our body, speech and mind, and lengthening life..

*In China, Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva is represented in female form and is known as Kuan Yin. Probably because of Kuan Yin’s great compassion, a quality which is traditionally considered feminine, most of the bodhisattva’s statues in China since the Tang Dynasty (A.D. 618 – 907) have appeared as female figures.

Dedicated to people who believe in & practice Compassion
