Quan Yin/Kuan Yin is known as the Great Celestial Bodhisattva of Compassion. Many believe that her purpose is to help people, and that by attuning to her, she will grace you with her compassion. If you call upon her in prayer or meditation, chant her name, make offerings and open your heart to her, many believe she will ease your pain, suffering and ignorance; protect you against illness, disease and disaster; and manifest wonderful and noble things in your life. Some pray to her for help in conceiving children, creating and sustaining harmony in their lives or helping others in need.
Originating in India and brought to China in the fifth century, Quan Yin was first worshiped as an androgynous figure known as Avalokitesvara. Due to the heavy influence of female deity worship in many Chinese provinces, by the late eighth century, Avalokitesvara had transformed into a feminine deity known as Guan Shih Yin. She is now known by many names (with various spellings) including: Quan Yin, Kwan Yin, The Thousand-Armed Kwan Yin, Royal Ease Kwan Yin and Water Moon Kuan Yin, and is depicted in statuary, paintings, drawings and writings, both East and West.
