Description also known as, Guan Yin, Avalokite?vara, Chenrezig, Kanzeon.

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avalokite%c5%9bvara">Kannon</a> is the Bodhisattva of Compassion. She transends place and culture. Everywhere Buddhism has gone, they create their own version, which explains all the different names and stories.

<a href="http://web.singnet.com.sg/~alankhoo/Avalokitesvara.htm">The great vow of Avalokitesvara</a> is to listen to the supplications, and cries for help from those in difficulty in the world and to provide them with aid. He takes many different forms....male, female, four-armed, thousand-armed, human, non-human, teacher, student...whatever expedient means are needed to help people most effectively.

Here she is seen on a <a href="http://www.onmarkproductions.com/html/dragon.shtml">Naga</a>, who is a protector of Buddhist Law. She is standing, ready to take action. In her left hand is a vial. This vial contains the waters of compassion, ready to pour into the world. She is often seen pouring the vial onto the world. Her right hand Mirrors a common gesture by the Buddha, a sign and symbol of peace.

May all beings be happy, may all beings be peaceful, may all beings be safe.
