Kuan Yin, the Buddhist Goddess of Great Compassion, had vowed never to rest until every sentient being had been liberated from their sufferings. The “Thousand-Armed Kuan Yin” with eyes on each hand is one of Kuan Yin’s 33 different manifestations. In this manifestation, Kuan Yin represents the omniscient mother, looking in all directions simultaneously, sensing the afflictions of humanity and extending her many arms to alleviate their sufferings.
