Quan Yin (sometimes spelled Kuan Yin, Kwan Yin or Guan Yin) is the Bodhisattva of compassion, revered by Buddhists as the Goddess of Mercy. A Bodhisattva is an "enlightenment being" pledged to universal liberation and happiness.
Kuan Yin - Goddess of Love and Compassion. This Spiritual teacher is very active to help us understand love and the necessity for compassion...not only for others but for ourselves. This gentle teacher, if asked, will help us to forgive and rise above or teach us to give no energy to that which we cannot forgive until such time that we can forgive fully.
