Hollow Carving-Quan Yin Sitting on Lotus Statue
Quan Yin is one of the major deities in Buddhism and one of the most popular deities used in feng shui.
The terms "compassion and mercy" are actually not the best interpretation of Quan Yin's energy. The energy Quan Yin expresses is akin to what a mother feels for her child—it is fiercely loving and protective, which is a much stronger energy than what we usually associate with compassion. As the legend goes, even though Quan Yin attained enlightenment, just as she was about to enter the heaven's gate, she paused at the doorway and, hearing the cries of the world, decided to return and help humankind find the right path.
Placements for Good Feng Shui:
- Define the best bagua placement of your specific Quan Yin statue by looking at its attributes, such as its color, the material is made of, and other details. A white Quan Yin statue is a wonderful feng shui cure for the West bagua area because the white color is the expression of the Metal feng shui element of the West. A green color Quan Yin sculpture made of jade can be a great addition to your East bagua area as green is an expression of the Wood feng shui element.
- Quan Yin can be a powerful cure in the annual feng shui flying star applications. Find out where her energy is most needed in a specific year and then place your statue of Quan Yin in the affected bagua area. This will neutralize the negative energy of annual feng shui stars and strengthen the protective energy in and around your home.
- Never place your Quan Yin statue on the floor, in the kitchen or in the bathroom. A height of at least 3 feet is recommended for the good feng shui placement of your Quan Yin statue.
- You can also place the statue of Quan Yin close to your front door, facing the entrance. This will create a protective quality of energy at your entrance (the mouth of chi), as well as the most welcoming sight when coming home.
