||Treasures, Statues and Beautiful Things|
At this time, I am focusing on statues of Kwan Yin, Buddha and Hotei. Kwan Yin is
considered the goddess of compassion, Buddha is the enlightened one, and Hotei, the
God of happiness and laughter. I also carry a statue representing the God of Longevity.
Kwan Yin, or Kuan Yin, or Quan Yin, is one of the most universally beloved of all deities
in the Buddhist tradition. Also known as Quan'Am (Vietnam), Kannon (Japan), and Kanin (Bali),
She is the embodiment of compassionate loving kindness. As the Bodhisattva of Compassion,
She hears the cries of all beings. Quan Yin enjoys a strong resonance with the Christian
Mary, The Mother of Jesus, and the Tibetan Goddess Tara. You will see her carrying the
"Water of Life"; from a small vase, She can hold a sheaf of rice or a bowl of rice seed as
a metaphor for fertility and sustenance. She often carries the beloved Lotus Flower in
Meditation. It is believed that Kwan Yin originated in the twelfth or thirteenth century
in both China and Japan. Kwan Yin is one of the most common deities used in Feng Shui for
the home or office.
The Dragon, an ancient symbol for high spirituality, wisdom, strength and divine powers of
transformation, is a common motif found in combination with the Goddess of Mercy, Kwan Yin.
We also use the Dragon as a house and office protector in the ceremonies of Feng Shui.
In Hindu tradition 108 is sacred. It is the number that results from multiplying the twelve
astrological signs by the nine planets - this was the entire known universe when this formula
was developed. Your Mala beads of this length are traditionally used in monastic practice.
You may wear them around your neck or coiled around the wrist when they are not engaged
in prayer. When you meditate an affirmation 108 times, you master that affirmation.
