Kwan Yin

Kwan Yin

Upon entering the garden we are greeted by a likeness of Kwan Yin who is the Chinese Goddess of Mercy. Kwan Yin means "Hearing the Sounds of the World."

Kwan Yin is also a manifestation in female form of Avalokiteshvara Bhodisattva which in Sanskrit means "The Lord Who Looks Down in Pity" or "He Who Hears the Cries of the World." RAB

Kwan Yin is also known as Kannon in Japan and Chenrezig in Tibet.

This presence has been also related to compassion, kindness, and mercy.
