Quan Yin (also spelled Kwan Yin, Kuanyin, Guanyin) is the Goddess of mercy and compassion and one of the major deities in Buddhism. In Sanskrit, Her name is Padma-pâni, or “Born of the Lotus.” In this article, I want to share with you how you can connect with this beautiful Goddess and receive Her blessings and support!
Who Is Quan Yin?
Quan Yin is a symbol of motherhood, virtue, and compassion. Her essence is pure compassion. She is able to feel pain and help ease it to the whole world. She can help to conceive children, heal a disease, protect in sorrow, and render harmless the spears of an enemy in battle.
There are thousands of different incarnations or manifestations of Quan Yin.
Usually, She is depicted as a barefoot, gracious woman dressed in white flowing robes, with a white hood gracefully draped over the top of the head and carrying a small upturned vase of holy dew. She stands tall and slender.
She also may be depicted seated on an elephant, standing on a fish, nursing a baby, holding a basket.
Quan Yin has three birthdays: the nineteenth of the second, sixth and ninth months.
The Teaching of Quan Yin
This beautiful Goddess graciously appears in our lives when it is time to cherish and nurture our wholeness through compassion. She basically teaches us how to be compassionate not only to others but also to ourselves.
Do you find yourself irritated or indifferent to the suffering of others? What keeps you from showing compassion to them? Have you ever hurt others in order to avenge your pain? Do you fear that you will be hurt if you open your heart to others? If so, it is time to awaken Quan Yin energy inside of you.
Quan Yin teaches us that the way to ease your suffering is to develop compassion for yourself. The one who knows how to be compassionate to himself will be able to show compassion to others.
Mystic Ritual “Travelling to Quan Yin Dimension”
This powerful ritual will help you to reconnect with Quan Yin, become more compassionate, and receive Her blessings.
Good days for this ritual:
- Monday (use a white candle or white flowers);
- Friday (use a pink candle or pink roses).
Find a time and a place where nothing and no one will disturb you. Light a candle or/and place flowers next to you.
Sit or lie down comfortably, with your back straight and close your eyes. Take a deep breath and exhale slowly. Then take another breath, inhaling deeply to the heart. Exhale slowly, feeling your heart expand. Take a deep breath and exhale through your heart chakra.
Try to visualize and feel yourself inside your heart. Feel your heart beating around you.
Visualize how a rainbow bridge appears inside your heart. You step on that bridge and cross the waters below the bridge. As you’re crossing the bridge, you become more and more relaxed. Waters below make you more peaceful and comfort you. As you’re walking over the bridge feel how pleasant and refreshing the air is.
On the other side of the rainbow bridge lies the Paradise island of Quan Yin. You set foot on the island, and the Goddess greets you and hands you a beautiful flower. When you inhale the fragrance of the flower, you feel that your heart is opening. She takes you by the hand and leads you through the rich lush fragrant gardens to Her pavilion.
After she seats you with care and attention, she asks you to talk about your problems. Tell the Goddess about your problems. She listens to you attentively. You feel nourishment and love in the very center of your being. You feel completely heard and understood. Sit with the Goddess until you are ready to return.
Quan Yin takes you to the rainbow bridge and hugs you. Thank her and go across the bridge feeling full of strength and renewed. Cross the bridge and go back to your heart.
Take a deep breath and exhale back into your body. Take another deep breath and open your eyes as you exhale. Tell the words of gratitude to the Goddess. If you lit a candle, leave it to burn down to the end.
For reconnecting with the Goddess and receiving Her blessings you can also use mantras. These mantras are manifestations of Quan Yin in different aspects. When you recite a mantra, you address a particular quality of the Goddess, invoke its Presence, reconnect with you and strengthening you.
