Kwan Yin, Always With Us

I recently remarked to Kathy that everywhere we have gone, since leaving Los Angeles in September, Kwan Yin has been there for us.

Kwan Yin is a bodhisattva, an enlightened being who has taken a vow to remain in the world until all others have attained enlightenment.

Her name literally means “She who harkens to the cries of the world.”

It has been a great comfort to me to find Kwan Yin so often on our travels. I offer up prayers to her for our safe travels and for the well being of our loved ones.

I believe the feminine energies of  mercy, compassion and a stong, enduring and selfless love are found in the many female deities around the world and within us all.  We have certainly found them everywhere on our journey.
