Let me introduce you to Goddess Quan Yin, also spelled as Guan Yin or Kuan Yin, is a prominent figure in Chinese mythology and Buddhism. She is revered as a compassionate and merciful goddess of compassion, known for her role as a bodhisattva, which is an enlightened being who has chosen to delay their own entry into Nirvana to help others achieve enlightenment.

The most common representation of Quan Yin is as a female bodhisattva. In this form, she embodies the divine feminine qualities and is seen as a motherly figure offering love and protection.  

Goddess Quan Yin also has the ability to transform her appearance, including taking on male forms when necessary to aid those in need, especially those who face the perils of the sea. 

Her gender identity is a reminder that the divine is not bound by human constructs and that qualities such as compassion and mercy are beyond the limitations of gender.

Quan Yin is sometimes shown holding a vase containing the dew of compassion, which she pours to relieve suffering. She is often depicted seated or standing on a lotus flower, symbolizing purity and enlightenment.
