Guanyin Statues (Avalokitesvara)

Ceramic Guanyin Statues

The history of Guanyin lies in the evolution of Avalokitesvara as Buddhism spread eastwards out of India. When encountering new cultures, Guanyin statues began to recognize the cultural beliefs associated with that geography. For example, traditionally a Guanyin statue (Avalokitesvara) was depicted as male. However, in Singapore, China, South Korea and Japan Guanyin statues are indeed female.

This change in appearance did not alter the Guanyin statue meaning, only the appearance. Additionally, Guanyin is known as the “Goddess of Mercy” because she is believed to hear the cries of the world. However, Guanyin is an incarnation of Avalokitesvara who is known as the “Bodhisattva of Compassion”. Very similar meaning, don’t you agree? Indeed, Guanyin is one of the most venerable figures in Buddhism who is known and loved throughout Asia and worldwide.
