During intense spiritual meditation and reflection, it is possible to see the gods and goddesses. They are real beings and many of them interact with us each day. Visions of the divine are rare and sacred privileges that bless our lives and lift the spirit to new heights. This one-of-a-kind painting is a rare spiritual masterpiece. A Chinese master painter created this image during a vision. We are honored to be able to provide it to one lucky owner.
Legends of the Mahayana School of Buddhism recount that Kwan Yin was 'born' from a ray of white light which The Amitabha Buddha emitted from his right eye while he was deep in spiritual ecstasy.
Kwan Yin is regarded as an emanation of The Amitabha Buddha and as anembodiment of compassion, the quality which Amitabha himself embodies in the highest sense.
Many figures of Kwan Yin can be identified by the presence of a small image of Amitabha in her crown. It is believed that as the merciful Kwan Yin expresses Amitabha's compassion in a more direct and personal way and prayers to her are answered more quickly.
The paintings of Kwan Yin depict her in many forms, each one revealing a unique aspect of her merciful presence. As the sublime Goddess of Mercy whose beauty, grace and compassion have come to represent the ideal of womanhood in the East, she is frequently portrayed as a slender woman in flowing white robes who carries in her left hand a white lotus, symbol of purity. Ornaments may adorn her form, symbolizing her attainment as a bodhisattva, or she may be pictured without them as a sign of her great virtue.
Kwan Yin's presence is widespread through her images as the "bestower of children" which are found in homes and temples. She is one of the most beautiful of all the goddesses. She is often depicted seated upon a lotus or carrying a lotus.
Kwan Yin is also known as patron bodhisattva of P'u-t'o Shan, mistress of the Southern Sea and patroness of fishermen. As such she is shown crossing the sea seated or standing on a lotus or with her feet on the head of a dragon.
Like Avalokitesvara she is also depicted with a thousand arms and varying numbers of eyes, hands and heads, sometimes with an eye in the palm of each hand, and is commonly called "the thousand-arms, thousand-eyes" bodhisattva. In this form she represents the omnipresent mother, looking in all directions simultaneously, sensing the afflictions of humanity and extending her many arms to alleviate them with infinite expressions of her mercy.
Symbols characteristically associated with Kwan Yin are a willow branch, with which she sprinkles the divine nectar of life; a precious vase symbolizing the nectar of compassion and wisdom, the hallmarks of a bodhisattva; a dove, representing fecundity; a book or scroll of prayers which she holds in her hand, representing the dharma (teaching) of the Buddha or the sutra (Buddhist text) which Miao Shan is said to have constantly recited; and a rosary adorning her neck with which she calls upon the Buddhas for succor.
Today Kuan Yin is worshipped by Taoists as well as Mahayana Buddhists--especially in Taiwan, Japan, Korea and once again in her homeland of China, where the practice of Buddhism had been suppressed by the Communists during the Cultural Revolution (1966-69). She is the protectress of women, sailors, merchants, craftsmen, and those under criminal prosecution, and is invoked particularly by those desiring progeny. Beloved as a mother figure and divine mediatrix who is very close to the daily affairs of her devotees, Kwan Yin's role as Buddhist Madonna has been compared to that of Mary the mother of Jesus in the West.
The Goddess Kwan has great healing powers. Many believe that even the simple recitation of her name will bring her instantly to the scene. One of the most famous texts associated with the bodhisattva, the ancient Lotus Sutra whose twenty-fifth chapter, dedicated to Kwan Yin, is known as the "Kwan Yin sutra," describes thirteen cases of impending disaster--from shipwreck to fire, imprisonment, robbers, demons, fatal poisons and karmic woes--in which the devotee will be rescued if his thoughts dwell on the power of Kwan Yin. The text is recited many times daily by those who wish to receive the benefits it promises.
Devotees also invoke the bodhisattva's power and merciful intercession with the mantra OM MANI PADME HUM-- "Hail to the jewel in the lotus!" or, as it has also been interpreted, "Hail to Avalokitesvara, who is the jewel in the heart of the lotus of the devotee's heart!"
Throughout Tibet and Ladakh, Buddhists have inscribed OM MANI PADME HUM on flat prayer stones called "mani-stones" as votive offerings in praise of Avalokitesvara. Thousands of these stones have been used to build mani-walls that line the roads entering villages and monasteries.
It is believed that Kwan Yin frequently appears in the sky or on the waves to save those who call upon her when in danger. Personal stories can be heard in Taiwan, for instance, from those who report that during World War II when the United States bombed the Japanese-occupied Taiwan, she appeared in the sky as a young maiden, catching the bombs and covering them with her white garments so they would not explode.
Thus altars dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy are found everywhere--shops, restaurants, even taxicab dashboards. In the home she is worshipped with the traditional "pai pai," a prayer ritual using incense, as well as the use of prayer charts--sheets of paper designed with pictures of Kuan Yin, lotus flowers, or pagodas and outlined with hundreds of little circles.
With each set of prayers recited or sutras read in a novena for a relative, friend, or oneself, another circle is filled in. This chart has been described as a "Ship of Salvation" whereby departed souls are saved from the dangers of hell and the faithful safely conveyed to Amitabha's heaven.
She had numerous embodiments prior to her ascension thousands of years ago and has taken the vow of the bodhisattva to teach the unascended children of God how to balance their karma and fulfill their divine plan by loving service to life and the application of the violet flame through the science of the spoken Word.

The Kwan Yin Stone of Compassion
The Power of the Goddess Kwan Yin helps us to remember and cultivate love for ourselves and others. Over the years, due to the struggles and triumphs of life, many people forget to show themselves love and compassion. This error in judgment and action leads to events and interactions in life that ultimately cause suffering. In our society, we are simply not taught how to cultivate love for ourselves.
Many of the most powerful spiritual tools that are available in the world work on the principle of the power of love and compassion. There are immensely powerful spiritual rings, amulets, statues, and other objects of power that require one to focus on love for one’s self in order to access their power. We have not yet been authorized to offer these objects on our site, but perhaps with enough diligent work we may one day be so blessed.
Today however, we have been asked to offer the Kwan Yin Stone of Compassion. This Stone is blessed with the energies of an Enlightened Priestess of the Goddess Kwan Yin, Holy Water Charged with the energy of the Solar Cross, energy from the Mer-Isis healing pendulum, and the energy of the Paradosis. The Stone is then charged with over 2000 volts of electricity. The Kwan Yin Stone of Compassion is then linked to the owner through a special mantra. At this point, the Stone has a primitive level of consciousness. The Stone is then programmed to amplify the energy of self love and compassion within the owner.
The Kwan Yin Stone of Compassion is a large lab created blue topaz. This stone is well over 500 carats in weight and is beautiful in its own right. Once it is charged and linked to the owner, it may not be given away. The Stone is a holy object and must not be left in a bathroom, kitchen, or in a garage.
The Stone is charged upon receipt by the owner. In order to use the Stone, the owner needs to hold it in their right hand while sitting comfortably. It is advisable that one make a list of at least 10 things that one loves about themselves prior to using the Stone. Focus on each item in the list. In order to use the power of the Stone, one must attempt to generate the force of love so strongly for oneself that one is brought to tears. The Kwan Yin Stone of Compassion works on the principle of the Gate of Tears. This Gate into the power of the spiritual world is opened when one cry’s with love and compassion for one’s self or others. When one is able to accomplish this emotional state, one may be said to be in contact with the Power of the Goddess Kwan Yin. The Kwan Yin Stone of Compassion amplifies and radiates this energy as it is generated. In this way, one builds up a resonance between The Goddess and their own indwelling soul. The Kwan Yin Stone of Compassion also stores the energy of the meditation permanently. This is a powerful meditation and one should take at least 30 minutes after the completion of the exercise for rest and reflection. The meditation itself should last for at least 30 minutes.
We are pleased to offer this special tool for $500.
