Kwan Yin as you haven’t seen her before: On a tractor
From the Facebook page of Spirit Rock Meditation Center, in Woodacre, California: “This stunning bodhisattva, Kwan Yin, now resides with us at Spirit Rock. Jack Kornfield, along with the help of a Sangha member who resides in Indonesia, commissioned a highly skilled sculptor in Bali to create this beauty. Her likeness is based upon the highly revered Kwan Yin statue that resides in [Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in] Kansas City.”
That highly revered statue appeared on the cover of the very first issue of Buddhadharma in 2002 — and a print of it is available in our online store. And don’t forget: your orders support the work of the not-for-profit Shambhala Sun Foundation, publishers of Shambhala Sun and Buddhadharma: The Practitioner’s Quarterly.
