Kuan Yin is the Buddhist Goddess of Great Compassion and Loving-Kindness. Her name means “She Who Hears the Cries of the World.” “Kuan Yin and the Dragon” is one of her 33 manifestations. Kuan Yin helps us to practice true compassion and to bring no harm or ill hate. She teaches us to treat others with the respect that is their due. The Dragon is China’s most revered celestial creature, and the Dragon enjoys wonderful affinity with many of the Spiritual beings of China. The Dragon is also Kuan Yin’s ally in her quest to help beings. The Dragon is of course an ancient symbol associated with spiritual beings and symbolizes wisdom, strength and divine powers of transformation. (05/31/2016)
