Kuan Yin is revered throughout Asia as the personification of compassion. In China it is said that anyone in distress who calls on her with sincerity will be rescued from suffering and harm. John Blofeld provides a compelling portrait of Kuan Yin through colorful anecdotes, personal experiences, and descriptions of Buddhist rituals and legends. He also offers a learned account of the goddess's history and importance in Chinese thought and religion, along with translations of devotional poems and yogic texts, images from Chinese and Tibetan sacred art, and meditation techniques associated with the bodhisattva of compassion in her many guises.
