Kuan Yin

When you invoke the name of the bodhisattva Kuan Yin, beloved goddess of compassion, you are calling upon a powerful force to bring you strength, healing, and unconditional love. With Kuan Yin: Accessing the Power of the Divine Feminine, author and devotee Daniela Schenker offers a beautiful and useful resource for connecting to Kuan Yin's energy through art, story, and your own spiritual practice. Ancient scriptures tell the story of how Kuan Yin became a bodhisattva: as she stood at the threshold to Nirvana, she heard the cries of pain and confusion emanating from the world, and she swore to remain in it until all sentient beings had been liberated from suffering. To help you draw inspiration and strength from this deity of loving-kindness, scholar Daniela Schenker has gathered together a treasury of Kuan Yin history, imagery, and spiritual practices that includes: 33 beautiful watercolor images of Kuan Yin's many benevolent manifestations, accompanied by inspirational contemplations, passages from the Lotus Sutra, and tales and legends about Kuan Yin Information about Kuan Yin's evolution, including her origin as the male Avalokiteshvara, her earthly embodiment as the Chinese princess Miao Shan, and her "spiritual sisters" in other traditions Powerful mantras and visualizations to invoke Kuan Yin's guidance and protection Tips to create your own devotional Kuan Yin altar—a sacred place to call upon her blessings Even those who encounter Kuan Yin's image for the very first time can find themselves moved to tears by her boundless grace and compassion. This goddess of mercy and healing has crossed the borders of nations and faiths to touch the hearts of seekers all over the world. Now, let Kuan Yin: Accessing the Power of the Divine Feminine be your companion and guide as you welcome her gifts of liberation, compassion, and healing into your life.
