In early 1979 the author encountered an unusual spiritual experi-ence which changed his life and put him onto the Buddhist path.For weeks he had fervently prayed to the Blessed Virgin Mary and to Sai Baba for a miraculous cure as his younger brother was stricken with cancer and slowly withering away. Heavenresponded to his cries and Kuan Yin P’usa came into his lifemost unexpectedly. Kuan Yin not only promised that his brother would live but would also be blessed with a son the following year… and it was so! e author was also asked to establish aplace of worship so that many others could also enjoy Her bless-ings in the future. us, the Kuan Yin Contemplative Order wasfounded in the same year and Kuan Yin has indeed given Herblessings to a great number of people who went there to worshipHer.Over the years the Kuan Yin Contemplative Order (KYCO)had been blessed with the visits of numerous world-renownedBuddhist Dharma Masters who gave teachings there. It wasthen that the author realised that many who called themselvesBuddhists had only a very vague idea of what Buddhism is. is led him to produce this book with the sincere objectiveof inducing such people to spend more time in Dharma study. With a comprehensive description of each of the Buddhas andBodhisattvas of the popular Chinese Pantheon, the inclusionof the many colourful illustrations and the basic teachings of the Buddha which all Buddhists should know, it is hoped thatthis unique book will make Dharma-reading pleasurable. Forthe sake of avoiding undue publicity he has chosen to use hisBuddhist name as the author of this book.
