“Kuan Yin temple”


Description from J Yee smart chick: Dedicated to Kuan Yin, Goddess of Mercy. Growing up in Hawaii, my family used to go to a Kuan Yin temple on the outskirts of Honolulu's Chinatown. I've always admired her for the compassion she extends to all living beings.

    Very pretty pick! Very peaceful also. I had heard the story of Quan Yin, but thought she was the goddess of the harvest and of growing things?

    Ivy, it sure would be great if LB had more “goddess” pendants, eh? Yemayah, Okun, etc.

    Sali Jo, Quan Yin or Kuan Yin is known as the goddess of mercy, but she actually began life as “he”, Avalokitesvara in India, and somehow transformed into a female deity after she “came” to China, Japan and Korea. I’m not sure about her being goddess of harvests. I think her Japanese name is Kwannon.

    Hey funny chick, how are you doing??? and how’s your family and bead shop???

    I’m okay, had a busy but productive summer, I just finished summer quarter a few weeks ago, and am beginning fall quarter this weekend, whoo hoo!!! :) yep, LB sure has lotsa great new beads, and how about all the new chain, charms and findings they keep adding, eh???

    I’m sure you know a whole lot more about the goddesses than I do….we had a ceramic statue of Kuan Yin that my mom made. I liked it because the lady was so pretty and had good vibes…

    oohh, a statue of Kuan Yin that your mom made, do you have pics of it that you could post??? Yes, Kuan Yin sure does have “good vibes”, very peaceful and compassionate.
