Kuan-yin

The Chinese Transformation of Avalokitesvara

Author: Chün-fang Yü

Publisher: Columbia University Press

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.

Kuan Yin, the ancient Chinese goddess of Compassion, is the principal goddess in the Eastern firmament. Wherever there are Chinese or Japanese speaking people in the world - in homes, restaurants, workplaces, small urban temples and shrines - Kuan Yin's image can be found. The ritual of consulting her has brought solace, hope and insight to countless people and it continues to be an integral part of the lives of tens of millions of people throughout the East today. Stephen Karcher's interpretation of this ancient text presents 'The 100 Poems of the Goddess', as relevant today as they were 1000 years ago, in an extremely easy to use and amazingly insightful form. Simply ask the oracle a question. By opening your heart to the answer, you allow yourself to be 're-arranged' by the symbol or figure Kuan Yin gives you. Then turn to the relevant page for that symbol in the book, where you will find directions to help you focus your energy and choose the right path to find an answer.

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.

Bringers of the Dawn

Teachings from the Pleiadians

Author: Barbara Marciniak

Publisher: Simon and Schuster

ISBN: 159143906X

Category: Body, Mind & Spirit

Page: 288

View: 2837

Compiled from more than four hundred hours of channeling by Barbara Marciniak, Bringers of the Dawn imparts to us the wisdom of the Pleiadians, a group of enlightened beings who have come to Earth to help us discover how to reach a new stage of evolution. Master storytellers and humorists, they advise us to become media free, to work in teams, and to eliminate the words "should" and "try" from our vocabularies. We learn how to go beyond fear, how the original human was a magnificent being with twelve strands of DNA and twelve chakra centers, and who our "gods" are. Startling, intense, intelligent, and controversial, these teachings offer essential reading for anyone questioning their existence on this planet and the direction of our collective conscious--and unconscious. By remembering that we are Family of Light, that we share an ancient ancestry with the universe around us, we become "bringers of the dawn," consciously creating a new reality, a new Earth.

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: 4549

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.
