Guan Yin – “She who hears the cries of the world”

My prints for my current work start with a life drawing. This drawing was of a woman I knew was in deep grief ..as she sat for us the archetype of Guan-Yin seemed to cloak her and I was able to see the deep peace and compassion within her and open to her . Guan Yin emerged from Buddhist tradition in China but belongs to many religious faiths and countries……  she is a primary deity to millions of people .

“When you are compassionate with yourself, you trust in your soul, which you let guide your life. Your soul knows the geography of your destiny better than you do.”
John O’Donohue
 
'She who hears the cries of the World."
