Sometimes she is shown in a position with one knee up and sitting, a known position for Guanyin as it was believed that “According to legend, this was how she was once found in her residence on Potalaka Mountain, meditating on the moon’s reflection in the water.” She uses compassion, love, and kindness to help all living beings.
“Floating in water,
Clean and pure,
As if hiding
In the white light.
When I set my sight
All egos are vanishing.
Your disciple Bai Juyi
With devotion under your feet.
You are my cynosure
Life after life forever.”

- Place the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion at your praying altar, as she is a deity who can be prayed to. To overcome any obstacles you are facing, chant mantras at her figure at least once a day.
- Exhibit the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion by the main entrance, facing outwards – doing so will counteract any negative chi entering the home. In addition to this, Guan Yin’s facade will serve to eliminate evil by repressing evil forces, giving your home the benefit of safe blessings.
- To create luck with health and relationships for your household, place Guan Yin in prominent locales in your living room or main family room. She will calm family members, preventing arguments and tensions. However, refrain from cursing and crudeness around her presence; it is important to treat her with respect.
- The Goddess of Mercy and Compassion is greatly revered; do not place her in the toilet, the kitchen, or at an elevation of less than 3 feet.
The Heart Sutra is inscribed on the base which Guan-Yin rests upon. Gold lotuses decorate the base in a beautiful and natural manner.
