Kuan-Yin with baby
Kuan Yin, originally known as Avalokiteswara (othe Lord who regards�), is a highly revered manifestation of the Buddha who appears in Chinese scriptures around 400 a.d. Kuan Yin means oone who hears the cries of the world� and personifies the compassion of the Buddha for the needy. She is the embodiment of the yin principle. She is usually represented as a young female deity but she has the power to assume whatever form necessary in order to carry out her vow which is to appear in any way necessary to lead beings out of suffering. Here, Kuan-Yin is depicted holding a baby which represents her role of Mother Goddess, mother of all humans and protector of children.
