This is a beautiful golden representation of Kuan Yin (Goddess of Mercy and Compassion) seating serenely in the lotus position. In her left hand is a vase, symbolizing her pouring compassion and loving-kindness to the world. She has a serene smile as she holds the Tarjani Mudra hand gesture with her right hand- warding off all evil spirits. It is a uniquely designed piece with a double-sided image, which is the back and front displaying the same image. This would offer more flexibility in your choice of display location and position. The glass base has a cavity with a small hole on top of it where you can fill in your favorite fragrance or perfume into the cavity to keep your space smelling nice.
Commonly known to the Chinese as Kuan Yin as the Goddess of Mercy (or Kwan Yin, Quan Yin, Guan Yin), she is the most popular of the deity on Chinese altars, trusted and loved by all Chinese people. Her name is short for Kuan Shi Yin. Kuan means to observe, watch, or monitor; Shi means the world; Yin means sounds, specifically sounds of those who suffer. Thus, Kuan Yin is a compassionate being who watches for, and responds to, the people in the world who cry out for help. Many Buddhist scriptures state that one can invoke Kuan Yin’s assistance by simply calling out her name; people feel that this bodhisattva is very approachable. “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. Kuan Yin is a savior with boundless compassion, a comforter of the sick, lost, senile, frightened, and unfortunate.
Kuan Yin’s main attraction for people lies in her efforts to eliminate suffering and to make people live in peace and harmony. This kind of immediate benefit and the ability to receive protection or help simply by calling the bodhisattva’s name, similar to children receiving an instant reply when calling their mother, have contributed to Kuan Yin’s great popularity.
