This lovely hanging features a sandalwood ball etched with the image of Kwan Yin and the Heart Sutra. Enhanced with a red decorative knot and ending in two red tassels, this talisman is a wonderful way to enjoy the protection and blessings of the Goddess Kwan Yin wherever you may be.
Commonly known to Chinese Kwan Yin as the Goddess of Mercy (or Kuan Yin, Quan Yin, Guan Yin), she is the most popular of the deity on Chinese altars, trusted and loved by all Chinese people. “One Who Hears the Cries of the World”, she hears those who call upon her and helps them even to lead them to the peace and happiness of the Western Heaven. Kwan Yin is a savior with boundless compassion, a comforter of the sick, lost, senile, frightened, and unfortunate. To have a Kwan Yin picture or statue in your house brings good luck and protection to the household and family.
The Heart Sutra is part of the much larger Prajnaparamita (perfection of wisdom) Sutra. It conveys the Buddha’s most profound teaching, that all is “shunyata”, generally translated as emptiness – a deep and subtle explanation of emptiness in a nutshell.
The Compassionate Kuan Yin With Heart Sutra Tassel, besides being an elegant accessory, is a handy Feng Shui amulet to invoke the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of the Goddess of Mercy and enjoy the healing vibes of the Heart Sutra. Hang it in your home or car, or pop it in your bag to enjoy peace of mind and prepare to welcome contentment, happiness, prosperity, and infinite abundance into your life!
