Sho Kannon Bosatsu (Sanskrit : Avalokitesvara)
God of great mercy and compassion.
Lord who regards all.


The "pure and sacred" form of Kannon Bodhisattva, one of Japan's most beloved deities.
Kannon literally means "watchful listening," and is often translated as "the one who sees/hears all". This is indeed the task of the compassionate Kannon -- to witness/listen to the prayers and cries (sounds) of those in difficulty in the earthly realm, and to help them achieve enlightenment.
Sho comes the Sanskrit "Arya," meaning holy.
