Kuan-yin

The Chinese Transformation of Avalokitesvara

Author: Chün-fang Yü

Publisher: Columbia University Press

ISBN: 0231502753

Category: Religion

Page: 688

By far one of the most important objects of worship in the Buddhist traditions, the bodhisattva Avalokitesvara is regarded as the embodiment of compassion. He has been widely revered throughout the Buddhist countries of Asia since the early centuries of the Common Era. While he was closely identified with the royalty in South and Southeast Asia, and the Tibetans continue to this day to view the Dalai Lamas as his incarnations, in China he became a she—Kuan-yin, the "Goddess of Mercy"—and has a very different history. The causes and processes of this metamorphosis have perplexed Buddhist scholars for centuries. In this groundbreaking, comprehensive study, Chün-fang Yü discusses this dramatic transformation of the (male) Indian bodhisattva Avalokitesvara into the (female) Chinese Kuan-yin—from a relatively minor figure in the Buddha's retinue to a universal savior and one of the most popular deities in Chinese religion. Focusing on the various media through which the feminine Kuan-yin became constructed and domesticated in China, Yü thoroughly examines Buddhist scriptures, miracle stories, pilgrimages, popular literature, and monastic and local gazetteers—as well as the changing iconography reflected in Kuan-yin's images and artistic representations—to determine the role this material played in this amazing transformation. The book eloquently depicts the domestication of Kuan-yin as a case study of the indigenization of Buddhism in China and illuminates the ways this beloved deity has affected the lives of all Chinese people down the ages.

Shanghai, 1937. Pearl and May are two sisters from a bourgeois family. Though their personalities are very different - Pearl is a Dragon sign, strong and stubborn, while May is a true Sheep, adorable and placid - they are inseparable best friends. Both are beautiful, modern and living a carefree life ... until the day their father tells them that he has gambled away the family's wealth, and that in order to repay his debts he must sell the girls as wives to two 'Gold Mountain' men: Americans. As Japanese bombs fall on their beloved city, the two sisters set out on the journey of a lifetime, one that will take them through the villages of southern China, in and out of the clutches of brutal soldiers, and even across the ocean, through the humiliation of an anti-Chinese detention centre to a new, married life in Los Angeles's Chinatown. Here they begin a fresh chapter, despite the racial discrimination and anti-Communist paranoia, because now they have something to strive for: a young, American-born daughter, Joy. Along the way there are terrible sacrifices, impossible choices and one devastating, life-changing secret, but through it all the two heroines of this astounding new novel by Lisa See hold fast to who they are - Shanghai girls.

The Chinese other, 1850-1925

an anthology of plays

Author: Dave Williams

Publisher: Univ Pr of Amer

ISBN: N.A

Category: Social Science

Page: 432

View: 8135

This book is a collection designed to gather together, for the first time, a conceptually wide and historically deep array of primary texts which demonstrate Euroamerican attitudes toward the Chinese. Among the many cultural artifacts generated by this encounter were plays written by Euroamericans which contained one or more representations of the Chinese. It would be reductive to say that such portrayals show merely the racism of a dominant culture toward a distinctive and different minority. Racism is of course present, sometimes of the coarsest and crudest sort; but other themes appear in the many dramatic portrayals of the Chinese as well, such as toleration, exoticism, and even idealization. The book is intended for scholars, graduate students and undergraduate students in the field of theatre, cultural studies, nineteenth-century studies, and Asian-American studies.

Category: Body, Mind & Spirit

View: 1763

Empowerment and Integration Through The Goddess is perhaps the most profound and informative book written on the subject of the Divine Feminine and how women and men can integrate The Goddess energies into self and the world. Since early in Earth's history, abuse, denial, and ignorance of the Divine Feminine has led to the enormous patriarchal attitudes that pervade mass consciousness and even Spiritual literature. This book provides one of the most in-depth studies of this issue ever written; from the Divine Mother, Archangels and inner plane Ascended Masters' perspective! Absolute must reading for all who tread a Spiritual path! Collectively, we are shifting out of polarity consciousness and choosing empowered, balanced lives. This book braids polarity into oneness, reveals the disparity of heart/mind, internal/ external, compassion/will, experience/knowledge, love/power, and assists us across the bridge of transition into the return of full consciousness. You will discover: How the imbalance began, What Goddess energy really is, How to balance Feminine and Masculine, Why experiencing the Heart is vital, Manifestation through The Goddess, Feeling into Physical Ascension, Meditations/Attunements to activate the Divine Feminine, What a balanced Master is, and How to Balance Love, Wisdom and Power.
