Kuan Yin – the softer wisdom of a woman.

December 31, 2013
Kuan Yin: The Buddhist goddess of compassion, oneness, love for all beings. She hears all prayers and is the essence of purity, nurturing love, and gentle power. Kuan Yin is  bodhisattva, meaning that she’s eligible for Buddhahood, yet she has vowed to stay near Earth until all beings are enlightened. This youthful and beautiful goddess helps us feel compassion and mercy toward ourselves and others. She’s also a protectress of women and children and she awakens musical interests.

Can anything be more subtly female than her graceful poise – modest and inward looking, yet potent enough to generate and compassionately nourish the whole outside world? In the words of Martin Palmer: “The divine feminine cannot be suppressed for long.”

With all the symbolism that surrounds Kwan Yin, water is by far the most relevant. Water being an universal element for healing. She is also said to live on an island, and takes special interest in sailors and fisherman. Her shrines are typically placed near running water or in sight of a beautiful view of a lake or the ocean.
