Mercy

Used to seeing crowded temples with people nodding their heads while waving incenses in front of these statues.  Haven’t grasped the concept behind.

Only recently, learnt .  Her name (觀世音) literally means “observing the sounds of the world”.  Gosh, never paid attention to that.  Funny how we missed the obvious as we just took things as they were without asking, digging and understanding…

With merely this little new found awareness, the statue looks different from ever before.  There is a certain serenity that i have never felt.

The world unfolding…
