This is a golden pocket-sized carry-along lucky charm ideal for your wallet or purse. It features a beautiful image of the Thousand Hand Guan Yin (Goddess of Mercy and Compassion) seated peacefully on a lotus flower. Guan Yin with a thousand arms with which to scatter blessings represents the omnipresent mother, looking in all directions simultaneously, sensing the afflictions of humanity and extending her many arms to alleviate them with infinite expressions of her mercy. There are a thousand eyes on these hands which give Guan Yin great powers to observe the world and see anyone who may be in need.
Commonly known to Chinese Guan Yin as the Goddess of Mercy (or Kuan Yin, Quan Yin, Kuan Yin), she is the most popular of the deity on Chinese altars, trusted and loved by all Chinese people. Many Buddhist scriptures state that one can invoke Guan 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. Guan Yin is a savior with boundless compassion, a comforter of the sick, lost, senile, frightened, and unfortunate.
Guan 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.
Carry this Guan Yin amulet with you everywhere and be blessed with peace, protection, happiness, and safety.
