Guanyin or Kuan Yin, in Chinese Guanshiyin 觀音菩薩 means “She who hears/perceive the cry of the world”. She is the goddess of mercy in Taoism, and Bodhisattva of compassion and forgiveness.
Quan Yin, according to ancient Chinese scriptures, was the mother goddess of China.
She became so popular to be adopted into the Buddhist pantheon and today is one of the more revered Bodhisattva in Mahayana Buddhism.

Due to the popularity of Quan Yin all around Asia, she is known by many names. It is pronounced Gwun Yam or Gun Yam in Cantonese. In Japan, Guanyin is known as Senju Kannon (観音).
