Her name in Chinese roughly translates to “The One who Hears the Cries of the World”. Many believe that she is the female representation of Avalokitesvara, who is the Tibetan and Nepalese Goddess of Compassion. As a Bodhisattva, she has chosen to put off her complete unexcelled, perfect enlightenment for the benefit of beings everywhere, and she will wait as long as there is one being who is not enlightened. Her sublime beauty and benevolence have become a representation of ideal womanhood.
