Quan Yin is the embodiment of compassionate loving kindness. As the Bodhisattva of Compassion, She hears the cries of all beings. Quan Yin enjoys a strong resonance with the Christian Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and the Tibetan goddess Tara.
Quan Yin (Kwan Yin , Kuan-Yin or Guan Yin) is the bodhisattva associated with compassion. In some Buddhist representations, Kuan-Yin is depicted as a young man dressed in Buddhist robes sitting gracefully.
