  KUAN YIN: Compassionate Saviouress
Although Kuan Yin was still being portrayed as a male as late as the tenth century, with the introduction of Tantric Buddhism into China in the eighth century during the T'ang Dynasty, the image of the celestial bodhisattva as a beautiful white-robed goddess was predominant and the devotional cult surrounding her became increasingly popular.
Today Kuan Yin is worshipped by Taoists as well as Mahayana Buddhists--especially in Taiwan, Japan, Korea and once again in her homeland of China, where the practice of Buddhism had been suppressed by the Communists during the Cultural Revolution (1966-69).
She is hierarch of the etheric Temple of Mercy over Peking, China, where she focuses the light of the Divine Mother on behalf of the children of the ancient land of China, the souls of humanity, and the sons and daughters of God.

 phorum - Life! Forum at Asiawind - Guan Yin(or Kuan Yin) - The "goddess" of mercy in Chinese art
In Chinese Buddhism,the "goddess" of compassion is so very deep-rooted in the Chinese belief since 12th and 13th centuries by taking on a female form.
Bodhisattva,in Mahayana Buddhism is the title given to a person who is to become a Buddha and it's an ideal of those seeking "enlightenment" not for themselve alone but for all beings.
Buddha(Gautama) before his enlightenment was termed or described only as "Bodhisattva" - the one who,having gained degrees of enlightenment,remains in the world in order to help other beings to their release.Hence Chinese people say of: - 'Guan Yin Pu2 Sa4' and 'Pu'sa Xin1 Chang2'(compassion in one's heart).
