  Kannon Bodhisattva (Bosatsu) - Goddess of Mercy, One Who Hears Prayers of the World, Japanese Buddhism Art History
Kannon often appears in the Amida Raigo Triad, for the Kannon is one of the principal attendants of Amida, the Buddha of the Western Paradise.
Kannon occupies a major place in the liturgy of the Pure Land Sect in Japan, whose principal deity of worship is Amida.
Known as Guanyin (Kuan-yin) in China, the Kannon is said to be the spiritual son of Amitabha (Amida), although images of the Kannon appear mostly as a goddess.

 Kannon Perspective
Kannon builds strategies from the Outside-In, starting with an understanding of our clients' customers, -channels, and the environment in which they compete.
As Kannon has worked across different industries, we've developed several proprietary frameworks that bring structure where none existed, using analysis to address assumptions or "mythologies," and tapping creative data sources and perspectives -- laying a solid foundation and basic core upon which the final strategies are built.
Kannon has also helped clients redirect resources from several "pet" projects to ones which made more strategic sense; bring together sales departments which have traditionally competed for customers to work together; and build a common strategic vision across marketing, selling and production departments.

 Saigoku Kannon Pilgrimage
Kannon (sometimes Kanzeon or Kwannon) is the Japanese name for the bodhisattva Avalokitasvara, or Bodhisattva of Compassion, one of whose 33 manifestations (the only female one) corresponds to the Chinese bodhisattva Kuan-yin, known in the West as the "Goddess of Mercy."
Kannon's ability to take 33 different forms is the reason why there are 33 temples on this 1500-mile pilgrimage that stretches from Lake Biwa to Kobe and touches Japan's east and west coasts.
Then find the hall with the Kannon image, toss some money into the donation box, ring the bell (actually a kind of gong that you strike with a vertical rope) three times and say a prayer.

 Maria Kannon Zen Center - The Story of Maria Kannon
The name of Maria Kannon Zen Center is taken from the two leading figures of compassion from the Christian and Buddhist traditions: Mary or Maria from Christianity and Kannon (Sanskrit Avalokitesvara: Chinese, Kuan Yin) from the Buddhist tradition.
Maria Kannon is being accorded renewed expression of a mutually resonating theme in the Buddhist and Christian traditions: the theme of compassion in its cosmic dimensions.
It is in the context of such a renewed appreciation and new significance, and in the hope of birthing a new possibility, that we look to the image o f Maria Kannon as inspiration for Zen practice that cuts across traditional lines of demarcation between the Buddhist and Christian traditions.

 Image no. 683 | Byakue Kannon (White-robed Kannon) | AskAsia.org
Images of the Water-Moon Kannon seated on a rocky outcrop overhanging turbulent water had appeared in China as early as the 10th century, underpinned by textual references to Mt. Potalaka, the abode of Kannon located off the south coast of India.
By the 12th century, depictions of White-robed Kannon were becoming popular with Chan (Japanese: Zen) monks, who brought them to Japan, where Japanese versions frequently adorned the living quarters of Zen monasteries.
Unlike orthodox religious painting, images of White-robed Kannon were executed in monochrome, which lent them a psychological immediacy and spontaneity that was prized by Zen adherents.

 Shingon Buddhist Intl. Institute: Kannon Bosatsu
Generally taking on a gentle female form, Avalokitesvara is understood to protect living beings with loving compassion, but she can also take on a stern faced, fiery and angry appearance such as we find in Hayagrîva (Batô Kannon), the Horse Faced Avalokitesvara, who gives guidance and protection in the animal world.
Avalokitesvara can also devote her energies to acts of salvation in the guise of many different faces, such as is found in the Eleven Faced Avalokitesvara; or perform acts of compassion with many hands, such as is done by the Thousand Armed Avalokitesvara.
Avalokitesvara (Kannon) is also called Kanzeon Bodhisattva, and this name indicates that this Bodhisattva can hear the voices and concerns of the world, and, in order to provide immediate relief, can change into many different forms to save people freely at will according to their time and place.

 Guide to Japanese Pilgrims, Pilgrimages, Holy Mountains, Sacred Shrines
The first type is exemplified by the pilgrimage to 33 Sites Sacred to Kannon in Western Japan and the pilgrimage to 88 Holy Sites of Shikoku, in which one makes a circuit of a series of temples or holy places, sometimes separated by great distances, in a set order.
Many Japanese localities and prefectures, hoping to attract religious tourists, have copied the traditional pilgrimage patterns to establish their own modern circuits for the 33 Kannon and 88 Holy Sites.
Hanging scrolls are pilgrimage souvenirs, and pilgrims often ask the custodian of the temple to stamp or inscribe such scrolls.
