In China and eastern Asia, Guan Yin is regarded as the goddess of fecundity as well as of mercy, comforting the troubled, the sick, the lost, the senile and the unfortunate. She is also referred to as the Goddess of the Southern Sea — or Indian Archipelago — and has been compared to the Virgin Mary. In addition, Guan Yin is surnamed Sung-Tzu-Niang-Niang, "lady who brings children”, and is worshipped especially by childless women. More details...
