Kwan Yin, Goddess of Compassion

May She Who Hears the Cries of the World bring you strength and peace.  Here is an excerpt from the Lotus Sutra:

"True Kuan Yin! Pure Kuan Yin!
Immeasurably wise Kuan Yin!
Merciful and filled with pity,
Ever longed-for and revered!

O' Radiance spotless and effulgent!
O' Night-dispelling Sun of Wisdom!
O' Vanquisher of storm and flame!
Your glory fills the world!

Your pity is a shield from lightning,
Your compassion forms a wondrous cloud
Which, raining down the dharma-nectar,
Extinguishes the flames of woe."
