The Kuan Yin Oracle: The Voice of the Goddess of Compassion Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kuan Yin, the Compassionate One or literally "the one who sees and hears the cries of the world," is the principal goddess in the eastern firmament. She is centuries older than the Christian Virgin Mary, but connected with her in that in most illustrations she holds a rosary, suggesting purification of the cycle of birth and death, and a willow branch, a symbol of Buddhist virtues. Kuan Yin's image can be found wherever there are Chinese or Japanese speaking people in the world—in homes, restaurants, workplaces, small urban temples, Buddhist, Taoist, and Shinto shrines—and the ritual of consulting her has brought solace, hope, and insight to countless people. It continues to be an integral part of the lives of tens of millions of people throughout the East today. Stephen Karcher's interpretation of this ancient text presents The 100 Poems of the Goddess, as relevant today as they were 1,000 years ago, leading the reader to answers to specific questions about family, professional success, travel, health, and love.

Synopsis:

Kuan Yin, the ancient Chinese goddess of Compassion, is the principal deity in the Eastern firmament. Wherever there are Chinese- or Japanese-speaking people in the world, Kuan Yin's image can be found, and the ritual of consulting her has brought solace, hope, and insight to countless people. In Stephen Karcher's interpretation of this ancient text, he presents The 100 Poems of the Goddess in an insightful, extremely easy-to-use form. Simply ask the oracle a question, and by opening your heart to the answer, you allow yourself to be re-arranged by the symbol or figure Kuan Yin gives you. Then turn to the page for that symbol, where you will find instructions to help you focus your energy and choose the right path to an answer.
