Japanese Harmony Goddess
Also known as Kannon-Bosatsu, Kanzeon, Kwannon
Goddess of Compassion and Mercy
She’s the Japanese version of China’s Guanyin, who is really a female manifestation of India’s Avalokitesvara.
Being one of the Bosatsu, she spends her time tending to tormented souls who haven’t yet seen the light. To help with her mission she is equipped with eleven faces and one thousand hands. It can get very busy at the dispensaries you know.
If you’re lost in Japan and looking for Nirvana, Kannon will put you straight. If anyone can, Kannon can.
