About Quan Yin
Quan Yin is the Goddess of Compassion, Mercy and she is said to be the Savior of Seamen and Fishermen. Some call her the "Buddhist Madonna" or as she calls herself, "The Mother of All Buddhas". Quan Yin is Compassionate ENERGY. She is the Protector of the weak, ill, children and babies. She is a Bodhisattva, or a "Being of Enlightenment".
Quan Yin offers forgiveness and a balm to their being so that they can find their own healing and so that they will not harm others again. Quan Yin represents the salve of Compassion for injured souls. Quan Yin is Divine Female. She is Sweet Mothering and Tenderness. She is "One who hears the cries of the world."
Quan Yin and the Dragon
As far as fishermen and sailors go, sometimes she is pictured on a floating lotus flower or in a boat or rising on the back of a dragon. Quan Yin is the brave embodiment of Mercy and Compassion. She is the courageous one that can tame the fierceness of Dragon. In dragon's wild and cruel nature, Quan Yin is the only one who understands Dragon and his nature. She with her unconditional love is the one that can heal him.
The Yang energy of the dragon is tamed by compassion and together when Yin and Yang fly together, then new enlightenment can come, new vistas and portals for learning are opened. Quan Yin knows the energies behind why people fight, she knows what people fear, and why they harm others. She has figured out what has motivated these behaviors and she offers healing ... through understanding and caring.
Once in history, Quan Yin was depicted as a Male deity. The God Avalokiteshvara cried tears of compassion upon the masses, it is said, and from one of these tears, or pearls of wisdom came Quan Yin (or the Goddess Green Tara in some traditions). Her symbol is the Weeping Willow tree, which also "weeps tears' from it's branches and is green most of the time.Quan Yin demonstrates to us that we need to be strong, to drink from the of the cup of Good Will and to flow with life's changes.
Forgive Someone Today
Quan Yin wants us to understand that they have their own issues. They, like the dragon, did not understand themselves or were able to handle their own power and so could not understand you, be there for you, heal you in the way that you may have needed to be healed.
We must each heal our own self, and then offer compassion to those who need us, while we continue to breathe deeply for ourselves and for others to grow in fertility, hope and love.
