Kuan Yin is the short form Chinese name for Kuan Shi Yin where Kuan means to watch, monitor and observe; Shi means the world; Yin means sounds, specifically sounds of people suffering on earth. Guan Shi Yin is thus the “One Who Hears the Cries of the World”. Those who are in need of this Goddess’ aid need simply to cry out her name; she will assist those trying to overcome depression, grief, relationship issues, family drama, illness, death of loved ones and other major obstacles in life.
When in distress, one must chant “Om Mani Padme Hum” (the potent Buddhist mantra) in front of her image. Kuan Yin will then protect you, your family and your business from evil. Like a child calling its mother, people depend on the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion, grateful for her promptness and immediacy. Once this bodhisattva is called upon, she will serve to rid the caller’s life of suffering, transforming it into joy and happiness.
There are a thousand eyes on the palms of the thousand hands which give Kuan Yin omnipresent powers to monitor the world in every direction at any given time and to sense for afflictions of humanity. The thousand hands also enable this Goddess of Infinite Mercy to scatter blessings and to 'lend a helping hand' to alleviate the sufferings of other beings.
The beautiful Kuan Yin is powered by solar energy and will spin steadily by itself when placed in an area with good lighting.
