This is my prized Quan Yin Statue found on my travels. The spiritual inspiration that she will add to your life in this piece is endless. Quan Yin is four sided in this statue, showing all her most beautiful possessions. Intricately carved and a stunning piece full of love for any home.
Her name translates as one who hears the cries of the world, and she is known as the goddess of mercy. She is a peaceful figure that you’ll often see in parks, temples and homes all over the world. She’s believed to act as one who connects ordinary people with deeply intellectual and spiritual ideas. Her vase is one of eight Buddhist symbols of good fortune and contains the nectar of life. The lotus she stands on represents purity of the body, speech and mind and like the water vase, is a symbol of good fortune.
Side one - Quan Yin holding her mala beads symbolizes her connection to spiritual practice and the importance of meditation and prayer, cultivating compassion and wisdom. It also represents her ability to add those who seek spiritual growth and enlightenment.
Side two - Quan Yin holding a lotus bud symbolizes purity, and enlightenment. The lotus flower is often used as a metaphor for the human journey towards spiritual awakening. The bud represents the potential for enlightenment, while the fully bloom lotus represents the attainment of enlightenment. She is holding a lotus bud as a reminder of the beauty and potential within each individual to weaken their true nature. The lotus flower also symbolizes, the ability derives above obstacles and challenges, just as the Lotus rises above muddy waters to blossom into a beautiful flower.
Side three - Quan Yin holding her vase, which is believed to hold the dew of compassion. It also represents her ability to bestow blessings and help those in need.
Side four - Quan Yin’s vase, holding the “Dew of Compassion” is being poured over suffering beings to relieve their afflictions. It is also said to symbolize the pure water they can wash away the defilements of the mind and body, and bring about a rebirth into pure world.
Having a figure of Quan Yin in your home attracts compassion, good fortune, and strength. Be sure to place her near your front door, allowing her to welcome and protect all those who enter. With this special piece, you can rotate her as per your needs of the moment, which is extra special.
