Kwan Yin is a very prominent and admired Goddess, widely pursued by the Chinese and followers of Mahayana Buddhism. Being the definitive icon of mercy and passion, Guan Yin is a respectable maiden, as her tale tells. She actually reached the point where she could become a Buddha (enlightenment) and yet she decided to stay on Earth, remaining a “Pu Sa”. She wanted to help humankind achieve better karma, leading them to the Western Heavens, where they can find serenity and joy. According to ancient Chinese folklore, the Goddess even managed to do this for the Monkey God and prevented him from constantly committing dreadful deeds- he now remains her loyal follower. Because she had the ability to comfort the sick and senile, Guan Yin was broadly admired and adored by the people on Earth. She touched their hearts and souls, creating a sense of peace and relief amongst those who were less fortunate.
Those who are in need of this Goddess’ aid need simply to cry out her name; she will assist those trying to overcome depression, grief, relationship issues, family drama, illness, death of loved ones and other major obstacles in life. She is known as the “One Who Hears the Cries of the World” – when in distress, one must chant “Om Mani Padme Hum” (the potent Buddhist mantra) in front of her image. Guan Yin will then protect you, your family and your business from evil, in addition to energize the Feng Shui symbols around her. Like a child calling its mother, people depend on the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion, grateful for her promptness and immediacy. Once this bodhisattva is called upon, she will serve to rid the caller’s life of suffering, transforming it into joy and harmony.
Kwan Yin in used in many ways to summon good luck and fortune, as well as bring a sense of protection to the beholder’s home. However, always place her on an elevated plane, due to the fact that she is a most sacred figure.
