Amazonite Quan Yin Carved in India

$375.00

Carved in India, this gentle and exquisite Quan Yin was carved in India. The Amazonite is a fresh, uplifting blue/green, transluscent and light catching around the edges. Quan Yin stands on a pedestal, her flowing garment as beautifully carved as the rest of the statue.

Amazonite is of the Feldspar family and colored green through copper. It encourages self determination and helps us to discard the notion of being the victim of fate. It is a beautiful reminder that the vehicle for change, success, healing, anything – is not a particular religion or modality. It's our ability to connect with consciousness and have a clear intent. You are never a victim of fate if this is your understanding of life. Keywords: maturity, self determination

Quan Yin is a bodhisattva, a being of wisdom destined to become a Buddha. She has taken the vow of a bodhisattva to save all beings from suffering by forgoing the final state of Buddhahood. Scholar Robert Thurman explains these celestial saviors saying:
Bodhisattvas are truly messianic figures, spiritual heroes and heroines willing to sacrifice themselves for others life after life. At the same time, they are keen to develop the wisdom that understands reality and the art to be effective in saving beings. 2
Quan Yin is called the Goddess of Mercy because she embodies the flame of mercy and compassion. We can pray to her not only for comfort, healing, guidance and succor but also for mercy, compassion, and forgiveness. She shows us through the flame of forgiveness how to free ourselves from all hardness of heart and teaches us to have compassion for all. She comes as the Mother to dispel all maya (illusion).

The age of Aquarius is dawning. Mystics and sages say this is the age for the awakening of our understanding of God as Mother. It is the age for the raising of the Mother flame. Quan Yin teaches us the safest way to accomplish this is through prayer and devotion to God. 

There are many legends surrounding this celestial bodhisattva. One particularly beautiful one illustrates how Quan Yin, more appropriately known as Kuan-shih-yin, came to be known as such. Her name means "one who regards, looks on, or hears the sounds of the world." The legend says Quan Yin paused on the threshold of heaven as she was about to enter when she heard the anguished cries of the world. Out of compassion for the suffering of others, she turned and vowed to remain and help those in need for however long this may take. The bodhisattva vow is a sacred and holy vow and not one to be taken lightly. Quan Yin is a nurturing Mother and the love and compassion she has for all is truly great.

The following mantra is associated with her: OM MANI PADME HUM
Phonetic: OM MAH-NEE PUD-MAY HOOM
English translation: OM! Hail to the jewel in the lotus!
