Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book. It traces one man's journey for knowledge of the Bodhisattva Kuan Yin, the Bodhisattva of Compassion. This is not a scholarly treatise, but instead a very accessable look at the various names that Kuan Yin is known by in a variety of cultures and the changes of understanding from one culture to the next down through the ages. This is a very sweet book for individuals who are drawn to Kuan Yin by any name.

Format: Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I 'met' Kuan Yin through Reiki and meditation and now have an interest in Buddhism generally, but somehow this Lady is special! It was so good to find a book written about her in normal 'laymans' language and it is written by a man who is clearly devoted to her which has helped me immensely on my Spiritual path! All in all, a lovely book for anyone who has a slight interest in Kuan Yin, purely because it is such a pleasure to read.

This is the classic Kwan Yin book in English.Very interesting historical information. When the author peeks out from behind his scholarly facade, the book really shines.

Format: Paperback
This book is very well written and easy to read. It is foremost a good book for anyone interested in Kuan Yin but also for those who follow the Tibetan path as it has numerous references to Tara and the link between the two. In fact it shows that they are one and the same with slight differences. I would strongly recommend this book not only to Chinese and Tibetan Buddhists but also Taoists and anyone interested in goddess worship.
