In my previous post, I said I’d be sharing three different Kuan Yin miracles stories. The first of these two stories are shared with me by a Zen Master, while the last account is something that I personally heard from the one who experienced it.
I wanted to share these amazing stories to help people realize that although I believe in the power of wearing Buddhist amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel, I still believe that miracles can still happen with or without them.
In the first part of this series, I shared the story of DY and that of her helper. How somebody who doesn’t even know Kuan Yin Bodhisattva, at the time of her extreme need was able to get the Bodhisattva’s help.
Today, allow me to share another wonderful Kuan Yin miracle story. This happened in Oklahoma. As most people in the US would know, Oklahoma is usually visited by strong tornadoes. In one of the strongest tornado that hit the place, a mother and her son experienced the compassionate miracle of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva.
I don’t know their names, so for purposes of this post we will call the mom KB, short for Kuan Yin believer. KB is is an American who attends a Buddhist class in Oklahoma, where he found out about Kuan YIn.
Being a single mom, KB was naturally very busy in trying to earn a living and in raising her son, because of this she missed out in monitoring the warning issued for one of the worst tornado to hit Oklahoma. It was already too late and she was unable to run to safety when she found out about the tornado, and she can already felt it’s force. She can do nothing else but embrace her 4 year – old son and call out for help to Kuan Yin Bodhisattva. However, all of a sudden she felt her son being pulled away from her by the strong wind and she lost consciousness.
KB woke up in the hospital, and when her doctor, who happens to be somebody she knows as well, saw her the first thing that the doctor told her was that she’s very lucky because she was found several blocks away from her house, and aside from minor injuries she is perfectly fine. She was also told that her house was flattened, and that she need not worry about her son because her son is in the other room.
KB went to see her son to see how he was doing even though her doctor and friend had informed her that her son was doing fine. That’s when she heard from her son what really happened.
According to KB’s son, when they were pulled apart, a woman in white appeared and carried them off to safety, after which this woman fought with the tornado and won. The story in the eyes of the 4 – year – old boy is quite simple, but KB firmly believes in her heart, that the woman in white is no other than Kuan Yin Bodhisattava, which is oftenly portrayed as a lady in white.
