About my goddess

Art History: gilt bronze Kwanyin, Goddess of Mercy

Kwanyin is a gilt bronze statue from the 6th C, AD.

She is the Goddess of Mercy — Gracious savioress who hears all cries and answers all prayers

  • Kuan: observe
  • Shih: the world / the region of sufferers
  • Yin: all the sounds of the world, in particular, the crying sounds of beings, verbal or mental, seeking help

The Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva embodies great compassion.

Celebration: The 19th day of the sixth lunar month for attainment of Buddhahood
