Paperback, 15 by 21 cm, 141 pp. plus 3 pages of ads at the back, heavily illustrated in black and white. Near fine with only faint corner wear – appears unread. A graphic novel about the Bodhisattva of Compassion. From the publisher: “One look at her soft features is sufficient to convince anyone that Guan Yin is filled with compassion for all beings. No wonder she is popularly known as the Goddess of Mercy. We see various depictions of her in the mass media, but the one consistent element is her immense compassion for all. A Goddess of Mercy. A vigilant guardian angel. Although originally a Buddhist bodhisattva called Avalokitesvara, she is worshipped and revered by people of other religions, particularly Taoists and Hindus. She does not preach or instruct, but merely seeks to assist. And looking at the crowds praying at her temples, she is possibly the most popular Buddhist deity of all. In this book, we delve into her origins and history, and also bring to light some little-known facts about her.”
