Today, allow me to share with you some amazing stories of miracle associated with Kuan Yin Bodhisattva, also known as Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, or Goddess of Mercy or Bodhisattva of Compassion very often mistakenly called as Buddha of Compassion, or Kannon (Japanese, and also spelled as Cannon). She is perhaps one of the most popular Bodhisattva of Buddhism, so much so that she was adopted by Taoism as their Goddess and also most Christians, who believes in Feng Shui associates her to the Virgin Mary.
I have written extensively about Bodhisattva Kuan Yin before and you may read all three articles by clicking on the link/blog title below:
- KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEARS THE CRIES OF THE WORLD
- PAYING HOMAGE TO KUAN YIN, THE BUDDHA OF COMPASSION.
- UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN
As you can see, I really want to share more stories that talks about natural remedies to problems and/or the power of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas even without the aid of amulets or charms like the WISH FUFLFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT and VAJRAPANI RUEL or other Feng Shui cures. I do believe in these things, I believe that these things are aids in hastening the miracles we need in our life. And they are very effective in helping us get the blessings that a lot of us really need in our life. But my mistake is sometimes I have unconsciously led people to believe that natural remedies or basic cures such as FIRM BELIEF, MANTRAS, SUTRAS, and other NATURAL FENG SHUI CURES such as the use of fruits, salt, etc. are not as effective. These things especially when done fervently and with faith are equally effective, or maybe even much more effective, as the Kuan Yin miracles series will show. So please read on and realize that while amulets are wonderful tools for us to tap into the power of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, we need not despair if we can’t have them or if we can’t afford them.
The first two of these three stories were shared with me by a Zen Master that I really trust, and one of the two stories she shared happened here in the Philippines. The third story was something I personally heard from a dear friend.
DY is a Filipina of Chinese descent who grew up here in the Philippines. She was raised as a Catholic and never really believed in Buddha, much more with Bodhisattvas like Kuan Yin. However, when a friend invited her to attend a Buddhist class, she found out about Kuan Yin and started to develop a certain belief in Buddhism. However, she never took the formal vows of being a Buddhist and she has remained to be a Catholic. Until one day, something happened in their house that leads her to believe in Kuan Yin.
While talking to her house help, this helper started to shake and lose her consciousness. She was having some form of a seizure, and DY got really scared because she was at a lost as to how can she revived here helper. Out of desperation, she remembered what a Buddhist nun told in the class that in times of trouble, one could call on the name of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva by reciting OM MANI PADME HUM or NAMO KUAN SHI IN PUSA or NAMO KUAN YIN BODHISATTVA. So DY proceeded to whisper in the ear of her helper to call on Kuan Yin by chanting NAMO KUAN YIN BODHISATTVA. After a while, this helper’s seizure stopped and she became fine again. But that’s not the real miracle.
When DY talked to her helper, the helper confessed that it wasn’t the first time it happened, that it has happened to her several times in her province. She would always see this dark monstrous like figure who seems want to enter her body. She would fight it, and she’ll have a seizure. The difference is this time, she heard somebody tell to chant NAMO KUAN YIN BODHISATTVA, which she did, and all of a sudden a “bright” lady showed up and drove the monstrous like being away.
DY became a Buddhist after that incident.
As you can see in this story, neither DY or the helper really believes in Kuan Yin and neither are they wearing Kuan Yin pendants but they still were able to tap into the power of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva. Although, wearing the pendant of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva is not really essential for us to be able to tap into her blessings, wearing it as an homage to her will help us have stronger affinity with her.
