Celebrate Guanyin （Goddess of Mercy） birthday 庆祝观音菩萨圣诞
From Mahayana Buddhist perspective, Guanyin is Avalokiteśvara (Sanskrit), who is a bodhisattva often depicted as a woman.
From Taoist perspective, Guanyin is Ci Hang Zhen Ren (慈航真人), a lady right from the start, and is one of the 12 Golden Immortals (十二金仙) in fengshenbang (封神榜).
In the book "Xiang Shan Bao Juan" (香山宝卷), Guanyin was incarnated as Princess Miaoshan, whose father was a cruel king that wanted to marry her to a wealthy man with a bad reputation. She refused, and was forced to work on the toughest chores in a temple. She managed them well and this made her father very angry, who then ordered his men to burn down the temple and subsequently executed her. She went to Diyu and was sent back to the human realm by the Yama King, and started to meditate on Mount Fragrance (Xiang Shan) , where she realized she was incarnated from Guanyin.
There is a special category of temples known as Guanyin Tang (观音堂), which are temples dedicated to Guanyin, and are often Cantonese-speaking. Among the Guanyin Tang are those used as living quarter for women who took the vow of celibacy. These temples used to adopt young girls that were orphans, abandoned by their parents, or given up for adoption by their parents.
