I have a Kwan Yin statue identical to this one. A great article. ❤
Kwan Yin is the protector of women, children, sailors, fishermen, anyone in trouble, and the sick, disabled, and poor. Some Buddhist schools present her as male and female interchangeably.
One of Buddhism’s most beloved bodhisattvas, and the embodiment of compassion, Kwan Yin is known as “she who hears the cries of the world.”
