  • The Legend of Miao-shan
    http://acc6.its.brooklyn.cuny.edu/~phalsall/texts/miao-sha.html
    In China, Kuan-yin (Avalokitesvara) came to be most frequently worshipped in female form as the Goddess of Mercy. This transformation from an originally male deity into a female one seems to have occurred sometime during the Northern Sung dynasty (960-1126 CE) and is reflected in Kuan-yin's miracluous appearance in human form in the legend of Miao-shan.
