Kuan Yin known as the Mother of Mercy in the East, has been worshipped by Buddhists for thousands of years. She is the greatest of Bodhisattvas and embodies the totality of compassion for humanity. She removes obstacles, erases past offenses, dispenses mercy, healing and spiritual graces, while always meeting the true inner needs of the soul.

"Hearer of Sounds"

Her shortened Chinese name,  Kuan Yin, means “Hearer of Sounds.” Her full name, Kuan Shih Yin,  means “Hearer of the World’s Sounds.” According to Eastern tradition, when Kuan Yin was about to enter heaven, as she stood on the very threshold, she could hear the cries of humanity. She did not enter but returned to help all who suffer in the earth plane. The term “Hearer of Sounds" can also be translated as “perceiver” or “regarder” of the world’s sounds. She is known in much of Asia as a divine emanation that answers the prayers of those who faithfully call upon her name.

Kuan Yin removes obstacles, erases past offenses, dispenses mercy, healing and spiritual graces, while always meeting the true inner needs of the soul.

Bodhisattva of Compassion

One of her many titles is Bodhisattva of Compassion. Bodhisattva is a Sanskrit word—bodhi meaning "enlightenment"  and sattva translated as "reality" or "existence." A bodhisattva is an enlightened being who has vowed to forgo higher realms and full liberation in order to assist those still struggling in the physical world. A bodhisattva cultivates virtue and pursues his/her spiritual career while on a path of self-sacrifice for the welfare of others and gives compassionate, loving service to humanity and to all sentient life. A bodhisattva (P’u Sa in Chinese) can be a person still in embodiment or a celestial being like Kuan Yin. At this highest transcendent level, the title is mahasattva.

Kuan Yin Mercy Prayer

Kuan Yin is a cross-cultural, nondenominational figure revered by many spiritual and religious traditions around the world. She serves the aspirants of all spiritual heritages and paths.Those who espouse a concept of an impersonal, formless divinity see her as an expression of the essence of compassion, or as a symbol of it. Others who acknowledge a personal Godhead view her as a divine embodiment of this virtue. Some view her as both the impersonal and personal manifestations of divine compassion, with no contradiction. She nurtures the growth of this quality in us through our devotions and our interpersonal relationships with others.

Missives of Mercy from My Heart

1.      Mercy's responses to challenges are never laced with the spite of resistance but full of the daring dialectic of progressive love.

2.      Mindfully formulating every dose of mercy in their speech, the careful ones meditate on the best possible outcome before responding to every verbal attack.

3.      Realizing the potential for greater chaos when conflict is not managed with equanimity, Mercy first works to understand every viewpoint, every experience.

4.      Regarding the divinity within all, Mercy draws out and accentuates the positive even as her sacred balm is applied in the most advanced cases of spiritual debilitation.

5.      Mercy applauds every resolution to overcome the inner villains of vile thought.

6.      Mercy's way is the power of gentle love, which always frees the heart to soar.

7.      Transcending human power and position, Mercy extends opportunity to the forgotten elements of divine Selfhood to emerge from within you.

8.      Resourcefulness is a keynote of Mercy, for she weaves miracles with whatever small measure of sanity remains within every dire circumstance to which she is called to intercede.

9.      Mercy's sense of victory is apparent in her relentless effort to save souls through the most unorthodox methods during the most inhumane times.

10.  Mercy carefully plots her every move to liberate you from samsara—one moment, one thought, one feeling at a time.

11.  From Mercy's vantage point, everyone is worthy, every situation is salvageable.

12.  Composure, which she defines as heart equanimity, is Mercy's forte.


Dissolving the Elements of Nonreality by the Alchemical Fires of Love

You Have the Keys—We Will Assist You

The Lord God understands the pressures upon your soul in the era in which you live. In the dark night of the Kali Yuga, the old suppressed feelings arise. And as these are brought to the surface, Mercy comes to assist you in skimming off the dark head of these past vibrations and in fully accepting the present reality of your beingness in God now.
            The alchemy of love manifest in this sacred work on yourself, which is truly a noble work and one worth striving with to fulfill all within you, is the key to your victory. Many of you are undergoing the great travail as the firstfruits of the Spirit during the penumbra of this eclipsing of darkness which is occurring. And as you understand the process of the sifting and of the separation of the tares from the wheat within, Mercy may be for you the key to your success.
            The Earth is convulsing and seeking to egest all elements of darkness that have beset her during this dark time, and you as a soul are also engaging in this same process. For those who would be victorious in understanding the very nature of the alchemical fires that come to dissolve the elements of nonreality within, we the ladies of heaven come to charge you with great God-desire to fulfill your reason for being. It is as if, blessed ones, the very intensity of the darkness that has beset the entire Earth is concentrated and offered to each bodhisattva of love to process within the sacred heart, one with your Presence, such that this greater world of darkness may go and the new light of awareness shine within many more.
            Because you have accelerated the fires of love within your heart through meditating upon the great Solar light of the sun of this system and the sun of your own Presence, you have set forth the process by which this alchemy is occurring day by day. For you are seeded with light as offspring of the holy ones, and now the Lord God allows the seeds of darkness to be burned in a great conflagration within the furnace of your own heart so that many more may be saved. It is the only way that the travail that has come to the Earth may be assuaged, may be mitigated, may be processed.
            Though you undergo the great strain upon your being, almost as one barely clinging onto life below the surface of the raging seas and barely able to make it to the surface to grasp another breath in your struggle, as you continue to strive to fulfill all within the chalice of your being in this great alchemical process, we are providing a platform for thousands and even millions to come to the point of awakening so that they may also be saved.
            You chose this rescue mission and you were given the keys to the divine equation long ago. You volunteered to be at the nexus of the resolution of light and darkness within the Earth. And thus the time has come. You are the process. You are the nexus of light, and your heart is able and capable of sustaining this light by the grace of Mercy, who I am within you.
            Day by day as you enter into your holy rituals of the science of prayer, meditation, silent contemplation and emanation of light, greater and greater quantities of darkness may be consumed within the fire that you have recreated within you. If at times, blessed ones, the burning seems too great and you have difficulty in sustaining that which is being brought to bear within you in this alchemical matrix, then allow Mercy's fires to mollify this action through a spiritual cooling effect as they are fanned with a greater concentration within your heart. For we will assist you in making up the difference if at times the path seems too difficult.
            Each and every one of you is a sacred vessel of light and holy fire through which the Lord God breathes the breath of life into a world. The greater the orifice and the vessel you are able to be through preparation, constancy and presence, the greater the work that can be accomplished as Mercy's victory is experienced in greater concentrations of light and ever-widening circles of beingness across the Earth.
            You have the keys, which have been given to you over many lifetimes, and yet in this one key life all has come to fruition. You have the greatest opportunity now to employ all that you have learned in the most radiant way in your spiritual service to life. Thus, maintain. Keep on keeping on and see every day a new glow of mercy within. For you are penetrating higher and higher levels of the Solar atmosphere of your own God Presence as you rise in consciousness.
            We are with you. Our hearts sustain you. All is well. And though the world may crumble around you in many ways and challenges still remain, through the equanimity of your heart, through the compassion and kindness of your very beingness within God's eternal Presence, you will be received in the arms of the Divine Mother at the appropriate time and place when your work is finished, your life mission fulfilled, and the appellation from the Divine One of “a life well lived” is bestowed upon you.
            I am the Mother of Mercy, spreading my wings of comfort around you. Blessings of peace always. I am Kuan Yin.
