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.

Guanyin is portrayed as a beautiful young woman in a reclined position, donned in a flowing robe and wearing traditional royal Asian Jewels.
The image in the crown is of Amitabha Buddha. Near her right hand a jar full of pure water and the left holds a small willow branch.

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 pronounced Kannon (観音).
In Tibetan the name is Chenrézig
