Story of Goddess Quan Yin

HP
" As Witches, it is Goddess Quan Yin we embrace when seeking wisdom of self. It is She that teaches us the acceptance of the paths of others and the responsibility of our own. Our Goddess Quan Yin counsels us by Her actions to cultivate within ourselves the wisdom and mercy of enlightenment. Through Her eyes we see the world as a Mother sees Her child, loving, forgiving and allowing.
The Virgin Mary with child we embrace as one of Her aspects, thus embracing in wisdom the faiths of others we face conflict with. For all Gods that man would kneel too, we search without as well as within for Her light and Her truth. "


Summoner
" Listen well! Listen well!
All my daughters assembled here.
Listen well with a single mind and focused intent.
Be filled with the wisdom of Kuan Yin! .
Listen well with a single mind and contemplate.
Receive the teachings and cultivate according to Kuan Yin!
Listen well! Listen well!
All my daughters assembled here
Listen well and receive the teachings with joy.
Listen well to free yourselves from bonds.
Listen well with a single mind and contemplate.
Aspire to reflect Kuan Yin!"


West
"There are those in the land who do not feel your love my Goddess. They do not feel the love of their brother and sister. They have known hurt and have chosen to turn away from your light. Distrust and lack of faith have robbed them of your wisdom and mercy."

Maiden
"Light the lamp of the heart,
Illuminate all dark corners..
Light the lamp of the heart,
To bring hope in every moment.
Light the flame.
One, two, three, a thousand, a million lights.
To help hurting, weeping beings,
And lost travelers.
Light the lamp of the heart,
To bring hope in every moment.
One, two, three, a thousand, a million lights.
To give to the crying and the weak,
To give to those who suffer.
Light the lamp of the heart,
To bring hope in every moment."


South
"There are those who talk loudly in hopes of hiding their insecurities. They strike out in anger and know not of peace. They turn away from the honor and the respect that you afford them. We recognize that it is a part of the process for them to release all that is pent, all that is guarded, all that is denied within their being. They know not of your wisdom and mercy."

Mother
"Mother we sing this song for you
We see your smile in the Silver Moon
We feel your heartbeat in the Earth,
The flame, the Air, the Sea, the Stone,
These hold your glory.
Your beauty untamed.
We feel your love in our workings
Be they work, poem or song.
We feel you in our life each day.
In labour, laughter and sorrow,
In loving and dreaming, thou art there.
You are with us always,
My thanks to you Blessed Kuan Yin
My praise to you great Goddess
My love to you Eternal Mother ."


East
" It is in your wisdom we must be guarded, and hold fast to your Light. For if we do not, in an unguarded hour energies that are not our own slip in and pretend to be. And before we know it, we have acquired new thinking, new perceptions that are not our reflection of you. We are lost without your wisdom and mercy."

Crone
"Goddess teach us stillness
as the grasses are stilled with light.
Goddess teach us suffering
as old stones suffer with memory.
Goddess teach us humility
as blossoms are humble with beginning.
Goddess Teach us caring
as the Mother who secures her young.
Goddess teach us courage
as the tree which stands alone.
Goddess teach us limitation
as the ant which crawls on the ground.
Goddess teach us freedom
as the eagle which soars in the sky.
Goddess teach us resignation
as the leaves which die in the fall.
Goddess teach us regeneration
as the seed which rises in the spring.
Goddess teach us to forget ourself
as melted snow forgets its life.
Goddess teach us to remember kindness
as dry fields weep in the rain."


Hp-all repeat
"I stand with my arms reaching out to you my Goddess Quan Yin. Mistrust, hate, pain, anger, and all manner of desecration of your light I ask you to heal within me, Let me not feel that I have been wronged or denied. Let me be awakening to my blindness as the light bearer. For the Light bearer must be the light. Let me acknowledge your light within and let me live this reflection in my path. Let my choices be made with wisdom and mercy."

HP lead Meditation
"Find a comfortable position and close your eyes. Allow your breathing to deepen and your mind and body to relax..."

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God. ...
It is through the inner Light and Sound that we come to know God...
And it is now through the truth we come to know Goddess…

Imagine that it is nighttime and that you are on top of a hill looking out over the ocean. The full moon has just risen and the moonlight shimmers on the water. You gaze at the moon for a long time; the moonlight is powerful but soft, and looking at it makes you feel calm and happy. The moon now begins to get brighter and brighter, so bright you can barely look at it. Gradually, it becomes Quan Yin herself, her whole body surrounded by a glowing aureole. She stands on a lotus that floats on the waves. At the sight of you she smiles a beautiful smile, and tears of happiness shine in her eyes. Imagine her radiance filling you, her strength, her peace and her compassion becoming a part of you. If you repeat her name, your mind will be calm, and she will stay with you. Finally, it is time for her to leave, and she becomes smaller and smaller. At last the sea and sky vanish too, and you rest in contemplation of the beautiful, empty space that is left. Let yourself become space. When you are ready, come back into your body and slowly stretch. Open your eyes and look at the world about you. "


North
"In this world,
she who knows how to give is rich?
In this world, she who keeps only for herself is poor
It is easier to keep, rather than to give
Yet without sowing, wherefore comes the fruit?
To give is the most beautiful act of life
To give is the beginning of harmony on earth
To utter one nice word to another
To be generous with one's smile
To be truly concerned
To render something nice
So long as it's done for a name or reward
True charity has no price.
To utter one nice word to another
To be generous with one's smile
To be truly concerned
To render something nice
So long as it's not done for a name or reward
True charity has no price.
In this world, giving is a virtue that is hard to come
In this world, the merits of virtue cannot be conceived
Give not to others what you want to throw away
Give others the Truth of Goddess they need
Give them the strength of courage and peace of mind
In this world giving binds you to countless spiritual bonds
Offers you happy and good conditions
Whenever need arises, Support will come,
Giving will lead you to a perfect blissful life"


HP
"We begin a new turning of the wheel and resolutions are made in traditions of the new to remember the morals of the old. I bid you now one by one take a stand at the sacred altar of Quan Yin work magick as witnessed by your sisters.
I welcome you all to now give. Sharing with your sister state what you will give of your self back to the Earth or community in the spirit of helping others as our Goddess Quan Yin gives of Herself. Give thanks and release it to the universe.
I also encourage you to share what you will give to yourself to tend and care for your wisdom and mercy. Give thanks and release it to the universe."


One by One all will do their work of the night..

" We are blessed as Daughters and we are blessed as Witches. Let us not forget our tools of wisdom and mercy. Blessed be Goddess Quan yin and Her place in our life."
