Namo Kuan Shih Yin Pua-Sa !
Kuan Yin

"She who hears the cries of the World"

To hear Her name
and see Her form,
Delivers beings from
every woe.
(from the Lotus Sutra)

In times of great difficulty, millions of people call upon Her. Yuan Yin is believed to protect human beings while they are crossing the ocean of existence. Her compassion for living beings, her desire to save them from suffering, is said to be stronger than a mother's love for her children.

Notice that Kuan Yin's leg is outstretched, stepping forward, because she is ready at any moment to jump up and help us. In her hand she holds a precious vase filled with sweet dew, the nectar of wisdom and compassion which she is willing to sprinkle on the heads of all those who invoke her name. The millions who adore Kuan Yin believe that her special powers will help overcome dangers, fears, and anxieties, and that she will grant wishes. She is also believed to help one cross over from danger to safety--suffering to happiness.

Her femininity imbues her with soft and compassionate feelings, yet she acts very quickly and directly as a savioress. She is compassion in action and is particularly worshiped for her ability to overcome the most difficult situations. Unlike those deities that require years of devotion to help their followers, Kuan Yin responds to anyone just by being called to help. She is a Bodhisattva who chose not to enter Nirvana herself until all others reached Enlightenment.

She is the goddess that accepts everyone in unconditional love, including YOU.

Relish her, let her begin to transform you, for that is all she desires.

Surely Kuan Yin in her great compassion took this chocolate shape just for you.
