Sheer, pearly, cool pink with a color shifting rose-violet shimmer
Buddhist Goddess of Compassion
This handcrafted potion is 10-free, dye-free, cruelty-free and vegan.
Her elegant sashes flutter as she passes,
her white silk robe radiant as holy light,
her golden belts blessing the air.
A perfected mind and a golden body:
pearls and jade fringe her face
and dark hair coiled like a dragon;
brows like new moons, eyes like stars
and a flash of red from her joyous lips.
She holds a vase full of willow branches
from which she casts redeeming water.
Her orchid heart loves green bamboo
which grows on her sacred mountain,
in the cave of tidal sound.
~ Chinese hymn to Kuan-Yin
