Kwan Yin is the popular and beloved goddess of Compassion, Mother of All and Protector of the Protectors. A great protector and benefactor, her heart is full of deep compassion and unconditional love; her energy is God-like. The energy Kwan Yin expresses is akin to what a mother feels for her child—it is fiercely loving and protective.
One of the several stories surrounding Kwan Yin is that she was a Buddhist who through great love and sacrifice during life, had earned the right to enter Nirvana after death. However, while standing before the gates of Paradise, she heard a cry of anguish from the earth below. Turning back to earth, she renounced her reward of bliss eternal, but in its place found immortality in the hearts of the suffering.
She makes a beautiful addition to any Sacred Space and is a lovely gift to give.
