The Chan School (Chan Zong) is the oldest Chinese school of Mahayana Buddhism and the originating tradition of Japanese Zen Buddhism from the 6th century and was widespread during the Tang and Song dynasties. The name is a Chinese transliteration of the Sanskrit word “dhyana” meaning meditation which, with self-applied willpower and knowledge of the workings of the mind, are the center of Zen practice.

    This rare Chinese carving is probably Chun-ti P’u-sa, a tantric female deity called the Bodhisattva of Light, worshipped by Chinese Chan (Zen) Buddhists as a merciful Bodhisattva. In tantric style she has three faces, multiple arms and six hands, and an elegant lobed crown centered by Amitabha, as does Guanyin.  This is an extremely rare and important piece and is as lovely as it is spiritual.
