This isn’t such a good picture. It’s hard to take a picture inside without using the flash, but I wanted to publish this anyway. It’s a lovely, 10 ft statue of the Bodhisattva of compassion, here and elsewhere named Avalokateshvara. In China she’s known as Quan Yin. A Bodhisattva is a being who have attained enlightenment but declines Buddhahood to remain in the world to benefit it.
