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.

Messages from Kuan Yin

Kuan Yin      March 10, 2018

David Christopher Lewis Discourse (overshined by Kuan Yin)
March 10, 2018   7:30–7:55 pm MST
Livingston, Montana

Kuan Yin Speaks on the Mirth of Mercy

Good evening, everyone. God bless you. Thank you for being here for Kuan Yin and for her love and her mercy. She'd like to share through a discourse through me. When I was meditating with her earlier, her message was very simple: be merciful upon yourself and be merciful upon your cells.

Now, how can we be merciful upon ourself and our cells? We are merciful upon our heart, of course, when we have love for others, yet also for ourself. And we know that we have to value and love ourself before we can love others fully. When we are merciful upon ourself, we give ourselves the benefit of the faith instead of the benefit of the doubt. In other words, we listen to our intuition. We follow our heart. We follow our intuition. We follow the impulses of mercy within us to be graceful, kind, compassionate, respectful, understanding, patient and virtuous at every turn. It is a conscious choice to be merciful, she says, toward ourself and others.

When we choose to be merciful upon ourself, we will have the necessary rest and sleep, take care of our bodies, have an optimal diet, and exercise whenever we know that we require it. We will meditate because this brings us into stillness, where we can sensitize ourself more to the eternal flame of mercy in the heart of Kuan Yin through that stillness, through that illustrious presence that comes upon us and around us when we meditate. And we will simply accept continuously the light of our Presence as mercy-joy, as this field of beingness, as this magnificent manifestation of the mirthful aspects of mercy, which enrich us, nourish our souls, bring us the gifts of the Spirit.

When Kuan Yin came earlier, I started laughing because she was conveying to me telepathically that to be merciful we have to also be mirthful. And when we have mercy on ourself, we will live in the flame of mirth. They are akin to each other; they are actually relatives—mirth and mercy.

You may recall—Cathleen and I do especially—when we were on our 2005 pilgrimage to all the twenty-one missions in California, Jackie Fleder was with us with her son, Sean, and he was very young. And during a discourse by Kuan Yin, a dictation or a HeartStream, Sean was giggling and very mirthful and laughing. And some people wanted to quiet him down, and Kuan Yin said no, that he was actually seeing elementals and seeing Kuan Yin, or whatever, and that it was fine for him to laugh. It's wonderful for children to be with us when we do our spiritual work because they will have insights and intuition and graces of the Spirit that come into them, which can help us.

Being mirthful toward ourself means that we don't take things too seriously. Some people came from Sirius and they can be very serious. Some people came from the Violet Planet with Omri-Tas, and they're a lot more lively and mirthful. So Kuan Yin likes to go to the Violet Planet periodically and infuse it with her radiance of the pink aspect of the violet light to bring that mercy flame into an even greater manifestation of joy, of mirth, of levity. She then distills from the atmosphere of the Violet Planet an expanded aspect of mercy, joy and violet-flame freedom to bring to the Earth.

Now, in Mount Shasta in July, Saint Germain is coming with the violet-light masters, the violet-flame masters—many of them. And Kuan Yin will be there with us, overshining us and illumining us with her mirthful and merciful joy-field of grace and love in order to accentuate the feminine aspect of the violet light, which really is mercy. She says, “The feminine aspect of the violet flame, the violet light, really is mercy.”

For the Earth to have a Golden-Crystal Age of enlightenment and freedom, brother/sisterhood and Self-realization of all beings, we have to accentuate the feminine aspect of the violet light, which is mercy. And when mercy is present in all cultures, manifest through all religions, manifest through all races and peoples, it seems like the magic of that mercy just dissolves frustration, anxiety, crises and problems of all kinds—our problems can just dissolve; the issues transmute magically.

Now, what you may not realize is that Kuan Yin is also a phenomenal alchemist. She is a Buddhic or bodhisattvic alchemist of the highest order, and she brings into play through her alchemy this mercy light, which is so disarming that when it disarms you, you still have arms! In other words, the armaments of war are disarmed, but you still have your physical arms to do your work.

Now, I think of other masters as being very mirthful—Fun Wey, Maitreya Buddha, the Laughing Buddha, Lord Ling, who always seems to make us sing when he comes, sing for joy because he is so joyous. Well, we have to start thinking that when Kuan Yin comes, through her mirthful, merciful flame she is also bringing this great joy-field of the feminine aspect of the violet light so that that mercy just washes upon us, cleanses us, purifies everything in our atmosphere, our auric field. And this then allows it to be expanded throughout the greater auric field of, let's say, Mount Shasta—where you are broadcasting this tonight—or wherever we may be on the Earth so that that merciful, mirthful flame and aura can help everyone.

Mercy dissolves animosity and all of the Martian A's, which many of us heard about in The Summit: argumentation, agitation, anxiety. We had all these Martian A's, words that began with A, which we worked on transmuting. Well, we have to transmute them into the Venusian A's, which are the positive A's, such as amity and amour (love). You could probably write down twenty, thirty words beginning with A that are the Venusian A's, which are the love A's rather than the Martian A's, which are the warlock A's. So no more warlocks and warlords and armaments of war. We require the Venusian spirit to come to Earth to dissolve all of the Martian A's now and transmute them into the Venusian A's.

Kuan Yin would have us recognize who we are by accepting who we are as God Self-realized sons and daughters, virtuous star-fire beings born of the sun, born of the stars, born of the wind, of the air, of the Earth, of the elements—the water, the fire. And because we are born of God and within Mother Earth, as spiritual beings we are fashioned in the likeness of Father Spirit and of Mother Earth, as androgynous beings in our own right. In other words, we have the balance of Alpha and Omega within us. And when we accept this and we see ourselves integrated in both mercy and justice, in the positivity of our Presence and the sublimity of our Mother nature, then we will have that perfect Tai Chi, Alpha and Omega, masculine/feminine perfection—the balancing of the right and left aspects of our brain, which really is the whole-brain experience.

So we won't be talking about the left brain and the right brain so much anymore in the future. We are going to be talking about the whole-brain experience. And to have the whole-brain experience, we are mindful. We're going to have a Buddha class a week from tomorrow with Manjushri, one of my gurus, and it's going to be on creative and colorful mindful living.

Well, I think to be colorful, we also have to be rich in spirit through all of the colors of the rainbow and the crystal-ray colors of our causal body so that we can draw forth through ourselves and offer unto the planet our creative gifts of spirit as a blessing to all beings, as a boon to all life, as a benevolent beneficence—using all these B words. We have the A words, and now we have the B words. It's so beautiful to be bountiful, right? It's so beautiful to be beloved. It's so beautiful to be born into the bounty of all of these wonderful aspects of our Buddha nature.

Remember, Kuan Yin is a female Buddha. She is probably the most known of all the female Buddhas on the Earth, although, sometimes we refer to her as Avalokitesvara. We also have the Mother of All Buddhas, who is a being so great and so powerful in her Motherhood that she ensouls all the Buddhas—both male and female—and the bodhisattvas. Someday we'll have a class dedicated almost solely to the Mother of All Buddhas, this amazing Buddha being. And I know that Kuan Yin will be there sitting at her feet, because she too loves the Mother of All Buddhas.

When Kuan Yin comes to us in her mirthful, musical and melodious Selfhood, there is such a feeling of inner joy that comes upon us that we forget all about our troubles, our physical pains, our issues with others, our relationship problems. And why is this? Because she wraps us in violet-light ribbons of her love, of her cherishment of our souls, of the ambience of heaven that comes from her retreat over Beijing in China, where all of these sisters of Mercy, both ascended and unascended, serve the beings who come in their finer bodies for the mercy flame to be offered and bestowed upon them.

When you ask to be taken in your soul, in your spirit, to her retreat over Beijing as you leave your body at night in your sleep or when you go there consciously in meditation through bilocation, you can be healed of virtually anything—psychologically and emotionally first. These healings that occur at the psychological and emotional level will then translate down into the physical to even help with physical problems.

People who have problems with their bones, their tendons, their ligaments, their muscles often have issues with rigidity, doing things in a very methodical or rigid way. The way to deal with this is to work at the spiritual level with our psychological issues, our emotional issues and have so much love flowing through us that it heals the emotions; it heals the mind. And then through the alchemy of transmutation, that healing descends gradually into the physical plane and makes us more supple, makes our body temples more pliable.

This is why it's so important to do yoga; stretching; the energization exercises of Yogananda; the Five Tibetan Rites, which I like to do; the Paneurhythmy; Surya Yoga, which Ron teaches and demonstrates; as well as other exercises that you may like to do. The asanas, the breathing, the stretching, the allowing of your body to become more pliable and articulate in a way that you can actually receive divine energy through your physical cells allows you to carry more mercy in your body temple—both in your mind, in your emotions and in your physical body temple. This is important.

How do we anchor and receive more energy of mercy within us? We have to be flexible; we have to be amicable. When we're too rigid about anything—about rules and regulations, dogmas and doctrines—we become stultified. And our physical temple can become very staid and our bones can become brittle; we have the beginnings of osteoporosis and other issues, or we may have arthritis.

So how do we deal with that? We have to become more merciful, and drinking enough water, having enough fluids is important. Water is the Mother energy. It's so important for our cells and for the health and vitality of our brain. You've probably all read that the brain has a lot of water. There is a lot of water, as well as fat, in the brain. The more water you drink, and it goes through the blood-brain barrier, the more crystal energy you have in your brain to then facilitate within you your ability to cognize eternal truths, divine gnosis, the holiness of heaven through the wisdom teachings, East and West.

So make sure you're drinking half your body weight (of pounds) in ounces of water daily. My wife constantly reminds me of this, by God's grace. I don't drink only water. I have smoothies; water with lemon juice and a little honey; the occasional coffee drink, let's say, if I'm out with others and they go to a coffee shop; or maybe something better, like golden milk, whatever. We require those fluids so that our bodies can have the necessary water element, because when we have the crystalline water inside of us, we can actually hold more light of mercy, more joy, more mirth of mercy.

I just sent to some heartfriends in our activity, some of our staff, a link to an article about the fact that in California they're going to allow certain waters from water treatment plants to be put back into the drinking water, whereas in the past I don't think they allowed some of that to go in. And they're treating them with chemicals, et cetera. So be careful, Californians, or wherever you live, if this is true in your area. Check out your water treatment plants. And it may not only impact your drinking water, but also your showers, your baths, et cetera. You may desire to have a filter for the whole system in your home and also for your shower and even your sinks. I can assure you that there is a lot of toxicity that they think that they are getting out with the water treatment plants, but they're not, and you could have problems.

Fortunately for you in Mount Shasta, you have the wonderful Shasta water. The spring water from the mountain is amazing. However, you may desire to put even that through a very simple filter, because even though it may be almost perfect in many elements—it may have a lot of prana and chi in it—there could be some things even in that, in this modern-day world, with chemtrails, et cetera, that you desire to filter out.

So Kuan Yin is sharing that for our physical health and vitality—because she is concerned about disciples East and West having the ability to focalize light in our physical body temples—we have to have pure, unadulterated and preferably spring water in our system, because the purer the water is inside of us, the purer our blood is and the more light and the light of mercy we can carry.

This is really her message for tonight: remember to be mirthful, because when you are mirthful with yourself, you'll be mirthful with others. By being mirthful, you'll also be merciful. Bring the joy-field of the radiance of the mercy flame from the sisters of Mercy from Kuan Yin's retreat over Beijing into play some way each day, if you can. Children laugh a lot. We have to learn and remember to laugh a lot, because the energy of laughter also actually enlivens our cells.

You've heard stories of Patch Adams and how people can be healed through laughter. We have to learn to laugh more. So no more morose chelas, no more doom-and-gloom disciples. Limit your time of studying all the downers in life and reading about conspiracy stuff and all the news. Limit that time, because the more time you spend on visualizing the Golden-Crystal Age and co-creating it with your divine mentors—your holy angels in heaven, your ascended-master sponsors and Kuan Yin—the more you will be able to both capture that light, store it in your cells and in your aura and then broadcast it, emanate it, emit it out to the planet to help co-create the Golden-Crystal Age.

What I'm going to do now is turn off this part of the broadcast and call Cathleen on Skype if anyone has any comments, and maybe I can field a question or two. So we'll transition right now to that.
