Quan yin, in Chinese Buddhism, is a very popular female bodhisattva of compassion and mercy who “hears the cry of the world.” She is the protector of women, sailors, and children. Often holding a vase, the water within (the dew of compassion) has the quality of removing suffering, purifying the defilements of our body, speech and mind, and lengthening life. Happy Mothers Day!
