More About This Book

Overview

Kuan Yin is the most important and best loved deity of the Chinese world. She is the living expression of compassion, whose gentle face and elegant figure form a centre of devotion in most Chinese homes and workplaces. Yet she is barely known in the West and few studies have been made of her. The authors of this book have travelled all over China in search of her true story and origins within Buddhism, Taoism and the female shamans of China. Now, in her universal mystery and power of the divine feminine, she transcends all doctrines, creeds and traditions. The beautiful poetry of the 100 Prophecies of Kuan Yin is here translated into English for the first time. These poems are used as a method of divination, to gain insight into the depths of the soul. With the myths, they form the heart of this new look at one of the most powerful but least known goddesses.

    Great introduction

    It gives a good overall introduction to Kuan Yin and her many forms and on why she is very revered. It is also a quick and easy read.
