Guanyin Pusa (Sk. Avalokitesvara) sits in dawang youxizi (Sk. Maharajalilasana) posture of royal ease. The left leg of the statue, which is in a seated position, is folded horizontally in such a fashion that the sole of the foot is exposed. The right knee, erect, support the right arm of the statue. Since this elegant attitude of ease and nonchalant unconstraint has the most worldly character, the position is formally forbidden to monks. Figure often described as Shuiyuan Guanyin “”Water-moon Guanyin".
