Quan Yin is the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion. She hears the cries of all beings. Quan Yin is often depicted carrying the pearls of illumination. She is also seen pouring "The Water of Life", a stream of healing water, from a vase. With this water devotees and all living things are blessed with physical and spiritual peace. She is often seen holding either a bowl of rice seed or a sheaf of ripe rice as a metaphor for fertility and sustenance. The dragon, an ancient symbol for strength, wisdom, high spirituality and divine powers of transformation, is a common motif found in combination with Quan Yin. She can be called upon when in danger and can alleviate suffering and provide protection.
