CKE-03 Chinese Goddess of Mercy
Goddess of Mercy also known as Kuan Yin (Chinese), you can see
her face almost anywhere in the world where the Chinese live.
She is the embodiment of compassionate loving kindness - the "Regarder
of the Cries of the World." She hears the cries of all beings.
In times of sickness and trouble, she is the first to be invoked.
She is child-bearer, creator, living compassion, friend and intercessor.
She is the great goddess of life herself. According to legend,
Kuan Yin was about to enter heaven but paused on the threshold
as the cries of the world reached her ears.
dragon stands as a symbol of the great unity of the Chinese nation.
The Chinese and those of Chinese origin considered themselves,
with a certain amount of pride, 'descendants from the dragon'.
Thus the dragon is a product of imagination, a mystical creature
that has been worshipped by the Chinese for centuries. The dragon
is depicted in many forms in modern Chinese art and closely connected
with the clothing, food, housing, transport and spiritual life
of all nationalities in China, who used to worship the dragon
chiefly because they believed that it could bring timely wind
and rain for the crops. Therefore, the dragon serves as a symbol
of harmony, the fundamental spirit of Chinese culture and the
cohesive force of the Chinese nation.
