By Martin Palmer and Jay Ramsay with Man-Ho Kwok, 226 Pages, Paperback.
The beautiful poetry of the 100 Prophecies of Kuan Yin is here translated into English for the first time. These poems are used as a method of divination, to gain insight into the depths of soul. With the myths, they form the heart of this new look at one of the most powerful but lest known goddesses.
Kuan Yin vividly documents the continual reassertion of the human need to rearticulate the feminine in the divine. It tells a compelling story that reads like a detective mystery. Sheds new light on both Chines and Western religions, and shows that the contemporary reassertion of the Goddess in the heart and minds of women and men is actually a recurrent cross-cultural theme.
