From the moment I picked up this book I was saturated with the energy of Kuan Yin. Yes, even before I opened it, it spoke to my heart. It doesn't hold a lot of intellectual rehashing of ancient ideas, it holds actual technique to connect with the Bodhisattva Herself and experience her love, light and compassion within. You can think about it all you want, but the journey of Kuan Yin is to be experienced through the heart and this book is a valuable guide for you travels. Thank you so much Daniela Schenker for this valuable gift you have given.

While I was expecting a bit more substance, I thoroughly enjoyed the illustrations. As I am a visual person, the images of Kuan Yin's many manifestations were of great assistence in understanding the compassion this goddess is renowned for. I am still in the process of reading what I suspect to be the perfect compliment to the above book. Expounding on Kuan Yin's spirtual teachings, The Living Word of Kuan Yin: The Teachings & Prophecies of The Goddess of Compassion & Mercy is an authentic channeling: chocked full of important spiritual maxims and meditation techniques. Kuan Yin: Accessing the Divine Feminine may be for many their introduction to the amazingly merciful and compassionate world of Kuan Yin.

There are very few books on Kwan Yin out there, and this is an interesting new addition. Quite beautifully illustrated (it would make a lovely gift) it is really filled with practical meditations and tips on how to incorporate Kwan Yin into your own spiritual life - which makes it quite different from other books in English on the Bodhisattva.
On the whole, probably well worth buying.

This lovely book is a wonderful read and also a nice affirmation. Use it to boost your psyche by opening it to a chosen page and setting it up as a mini-shrine to support whatever qualities you need on any given day -- hope, generosity, wisdom, etc.

The information here is not well-known, for Kwan Yin has many aspects. Very nice resource book.

Gentle Kwan Yin is all things to all people, and women find her to be a powerful support in times of need.

Am I preaching, I hope not -- but maybe preaching to the choir.

This book is a lovely introduction to Kuan Yin, highlighted by lovely artwork of Kuan Yin in all her incarnations. It's more than a book to put away after you've gone through it; it's a book to keep open to whichever page speaks to you at the moment and from which you can draw inspiration.

This book is nice. It has wonderful artwork. I think the artwork is really the best part of the book. Some of the writing is written and reads as "hearsay" rather than historical or deeply researched information. I have a preference as a reader and prefer information that has historical solidity. This book has a "new age" kind of feel...it's just ok, but the artwork...Excellent!
