Mondop of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara (Kuan-Yin)

Mondop of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara (Kuan-Yin)
The two virtues that make it possible for humanity to live together in peace are kindness and justice. In Mahayana Buddhism, the Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara representing the spirit of compassion is the most revered and honored heavenly being in India, China, Tibet, Japan and Korea.
After the Tang Dynasty, legends transformed this male Bodhisattva into the image of a beautiful and gracious woman. The Chinese call her Kuan-Yin. The ladys face is sad and com pas sion ate, con cerned for all humanities. Her image is rendered as a graceful female figure, wearing a chain featuring the figure of a deer.
