Kuan Yin (Avalokitesvara) is a very prominent and revered Goddess, widely pursued by the Chinese and followers of Mahayana Buddhism. Being the definitive icon of mercy and compassion, Kuan Yin is a respectable maiden, as her tale tells. She actually reached the point where she could become a Buddha (a being who is enlightened and free from the cycles of birth and death) and yet she decided to stay on Earth, remaining a Pu Sa or Bodhisattva. She wanted to help humankind achieve better karma, leading them to the Western Heavens, where they can find peace, happiness and bliss. Because she had the ability to comfort the sick and senile, Kuan Yin was widely 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.
Kuan Yin is the short form Chinese name for Kuan Shi Yin where Kuan means to watch, monitor and observe; Shi means the world; Yin means sounds, specifically sounds of people suffering on earth. Guan Shi Yin is thus the “One Who Hears the Cries of the World”. 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.
When in distress, one must chant Om Mani Padme Hum in front of her image. Kuan Yin will then protect you, your family and your business from evil. 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 happiness.
