Buddha ~ Law Among the Birds

In the Buddhist religion, the Dharma concept of the Buddha is not confined to men, but is taught to all kinds of beings, including ghosts and animals. According to a legend Avalokitesvara, the Bodhisattva of Mercy, (AvalokiteĊ›vara is often depicted in a female form known as Guan Yin or Kuan Yin or Quan Yin) had taken among the birds the form of a cuckoo - an animal which recommends itself to the Buddhist mind by its attitude to family life.
