In this traditional posture, Kuan Yin pours out her compassion, sheds enlightenment on the lotus and teaches mankind the way of mercy and forgiveness. Kuan Yin’s name means "She who hears the cries of the world." As legend has it, Kuan Yin was about to pass through the gates of heaven but paused when she heard the cries of a humanity. She then vowed to delay eternal bliss, instead to tarry with those who suffer until all reach enlightenment (the bodhisattva vow).
