$12.00

Quan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy, cleanses the world of evil spirits. Kuan Yin (also spelled Kwan 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 as “The One who Hears the Cries of the World.” Many believe that she is the female representation of Avalokiteswara, who is the Tibetan and Nepalese God of Compassion.
In Asia, statues of Kuan Yin can be found in front of, or on the grounds of, many Buddhist temples. She is a Boddhisattva (also spelled bodhisattva), a person who has earned the right to leave this world of suffering and enter nirvana, but has chosen instead to stay on this earth to help others reach enlightenment first.
Because of her willingness to help, Kuan-Yin is the patron saint of the home. She helps with all matters having to do with the household, family and love.
It is not unusual to see Kuan Yin in various forms and poses. She is a wonderful addition to any home to bring peace.
