Kuan Yin

Known through many religions, here is a Deity that spans countries, religions and time. In East Asian Buddhism and Taoism she is know as Quan Yin, Kuan Yin or Guan Yin. In India she is known as Padme Pani. In all accounts she remains the same Bodhisattva of Compassion. Her name meaning ‘she who hears the cries of the world.’  Her story tells of being a beautiful princess Miao-Shan who dedicated her life to religious practice and was known as a spiritual adept. Her attainment of enlightenment saw her standing at the gates of Nirvana and at this time she heard the cries of the world and in her depth of compassion gave up her place and returned to world duties as the gift of compassion.

She has much to teach us all of her ways and is the one Goddess whose name I speak often asking for her depth of compassion to be mine,  In this we are seeking forgiveness. And mostly the greatest lesson for us all in compassion and forgiveness is to oneself. The gift of self love in compassion and forgiveness. In your journey of wellness - the journey that is self love, raise your glass to Kuan Yin in salutation to you.

Why Dandelion and Mint?

In truth, when I first selected Dandelion it was because of its tenacity that I had come to know and love. A sturdy, hardy plant that continues to grow despite the odds, it works hard to deliver its message to the world. On knowing it further I discover this is exactly who it is on the inside for us, with its ability to be used as a blood tonic, digestive tonic, liver cleanser and production of insulin, this is one heck of a robust plant.  I coupled it with the softness of the Mint to allow it to become gentle and more feminine in its digestion and softness to the scent.  This is at the very heart of Kuan Yin. What it takes to hold compassion is not just in being soft and of the feminine, but strong and robust to allow the truth of compassion to be known. It is her mantra Gayatri that I sing to the Jun in its creation and the essence that runs through its veins.
