Kuan Yin is the most important, best-loved deity in the Chinese world. She is the living expression of compassion and the center of devotion in most Chinese homes and workplaces. Yet she is barely known in the West. The authors ofThe Kuan Yin Chroniclesintroduce Kuan Yin to Western readers, and reveal that Kuan Yin is the mystery and power of the divine feminine, who transcends all doctrines, creeds, and traditions.
The book is divided into three sections:
The origins and evolution of Kuan Yin in early China, Buddhism, Taoism, and shamanism.
The myths and stories about Kuan Yin.
Fresh translations of 100 Kuan Yin poems, which function as both literature and tools for divination and prophecy.
The Kuan Yin Chroniclesis for any Western reader who wants to connect with the ancient power of the Goddess in their lives.
