The Great Goddess Quan Yin

This article is an excerpt from “Quan Yin’s

Compassionate Heart Healing” - an attunement-based

energy healing modality channelled by Maya

The Great Goddess of antiquity finds her expression through numerous and diverse depictions of personified deity. From Mary the Mother of Jesus, to Isis the Mother Goddess of Egypt; through Gaia (Mother Earth), to Frigga, Kali, Tara and Quan Yin. Her power is conveyed through thousands of beloved delineations that extend from one side of the world to the other and span aeons of time! The Great Goddess has been loved, celebrated and reinvented in the hearts of billions of people since the dawn of time. And, while she is a complex and multi-faceted presence, she is considered her most accessible and is most often related to, as a Mother Goddess. Quan Yin is a personification of the Great Mother Goddess that many feel called to for help and healing. She personifies the gentlest and most empathic side of the Great Goddess. Her law is unconditional and boundless love. Her commandment is mercy. Her gift is compassion.

Quan Yin

Quan Yin is the Goddess of Mercy & Compassion. While she originates in China, she has developed a large following around the world. In Japan she is called Kannon. And she shares many aspects with the goddess, Tara of Tibet. Quan Yin is also a being of enlightenment and growth known as a ‘Bodhisattva’: a being devoted to the enlightenment of all beings. She offers support and guidance to those who wish to let go of their ego attachments and embrace her compassionate way. Many meditate on her image in order cultivate this depth of divine love. Her full name is ‘Quan Shi Yin’ which means “she who hears the cries of the world”. And the cries that she hears are those heartfelt, perfect prayers, that come when the ego has been quieted; the perfect utterances of the heart and spirit that open us to experiences of the limitless divine.

Quan Yin Upon the Dragon

There are many depictions of Quan Yin but one of my favourite images (see above) shows her standing on the back of a serpentine dragon; she wears an expression of peace and satisfaction and her posture conveys confidence & compassion. In one hand she holds a vase that contains the tears of those who cry to her for help; the other hand holds a rice plant that reveals her power over the natural world. The dragon she rides is representative of the ego and of the fiery yang-energy current. The dragon is symbolic of our desires and emotions; its endless, undulating dance reflects the constant movement of the turbulent passions within us, and how we externalise these by our intentions and actions. I see this image as depicting the ego-dragon reacting to the stormy waves of emotion with limited consciousness. Quan Yin creates a safe-space and allows the dragon to experience the waves of emotion without the judgment and attachment of ego-based awareness; providing access to the sacred nature. Wherever she is called, a portal of love, compassion and mercy is created. Working with this system allows us to do the same for ourselves and others to effect healing and spiritual growth.
