About Kwan Yin

Kwan Yin is a bodhisattva of compassion, a saintly figure tasked by heaven with the consolation of the hearts of the faithful and good. She is said to sit in observation of the suffering of the world and bring the worthy to lie in the heart of lotuses before their ascension to heaven. A statue of Kwan Yin is a traditional ornament in a Buddhist home. It is believed to ward off bad fortune and to provide ease and comfort to the dying. Porcelain Kwan Yin figures and other icons of the bodhisattva can be purchased on eBay, where reliable sellers offer many religious symbols commemorating the succor of her mercy to mankind. These Kwan Yin statues can express your dedication to the betterment of mankind as well as your commitment to the spiritual precepts of Buddhism, a tradition steeped in the history and the culture of Eastern Asia.
