Kuan Yin is the Mandarin name for Avalokitesvara which literally means “ one who perceives the worlds lamentations.” She is know as the Goddess of Mercy because she embodies compassion, comfort, healing, guidance, and success. She is often depicted as a female form in Mahayana Buddhism and Taoism. She can appear in any form, male or female, in order to benefit and teach the Dharma to all sentient beings. Kuan Yin assists in developing unconditional love within ourselves and towards others. A tranquil and peaceful atmosphere pervades the space with Kuan Yin incense in your home, office, or place of worship. The scent of Kuan Yin (compassion) is as pleasant and gentle as the uplifting Himalayan mountain air.
