Kuan Yin–part one

  One of the most important functions Kuan Yin fulfills in Buddhist theology is as captain of the “Bark of Salvation”    -Messenger ECP:  Pearls of Wisdom 1982

  Kuan Yin, Goddess of Mercy, has promised to keep the flame of forgiveness on behalf of the evolutions of this planet.  Foregoing cosmic service and advancement in the hierarchial order she will remain in the Temple of Mercy located in the etheric plane over Beijing until all have returned to the heart of God….The bodhisattvas have made a vow to serve God and the flame of freedom until every man, woman and child of Terra is ascended and free.  Kuan Yin cautions us however against taking this vow ourselves unless we thoroughly understand the service of these dedicated ones.     -Messengers M & E Prophet:  Masters and the Spiritual Path, 2001, p. 146
  Being one with all life, we are aware of all life in its manifestations from the highest to the lowest.  This is part of the bodhisattva ideal which is a part of those who are standing with humanity.  And there are quite a number upon this planet, although few compared to those who go their own way of riotous living.  It is a very high and holy order and I suggest that you think long and hard about this calling before you respond and say, “I will do the same.”    -Kuan Yin:  Pearls of Wisdom 1982
     Ponder these teachings, beloved.  Ponder in your heart:  have you left a stone there that is hardened?  Go after it, cast it out!  Restore that place with the fullness of the elixir of mercy.  Blessed ones, mercy is the first step on the path of return to the Godhead.    -Kuan Yin:  Pearl  45:15
  My tryst with every heart is to amplify the flame of divine mercy that the balm of forgiveness be given to all children of God because it is the nature of God.  So delicately balanced is this nature in its universal involvement that no man can violate its realities with impugnity….
  Knowing that men do not at the stroke of the hour suddenly produce perfection in place of imperfection but that they from one day to the next lay the foundations of that perfection for which they long, I urge all to begin right where they are (or rejoice in a previous beginning) to conscientiously remove from their being feelings of racial hatred and religious bigotry.    -Kuan Yin:  Pearl 1973
  Blessed are ye when ye see yourselves as instruments of the hand of God, instruments of the promises that have been written!  Blessed are ye when ye understand the indispensable nature of the Godhead’s descent into physicality through you.   -Kuan Yin:  Pearl 1982
 
Beloved ones, this violet transmuting flame is the full power of God in action to wipe out the causes and cores of all human mistakes regardless of how, when, where, why or by whom they were made.  Its light and flame never fail to act instantly at your call.  The only appearance of delay or failure there can ever be anywhere is for the vacillating outer self of the unascended to give up too easily and too soon.  Keeping everlastingly at it brings success.
…the speed and intensity of its (the violet fire’s) action depends largely upon the feelings of earnest sincerity, faith and loving gratitude in the consciousness of the one calling it forth. Then too since the violet fire is actually God’s memory of perfection it does more than just dissolve those forms. It actually sublimates (refines by fire) and then transmutes into the pure light-essence from whence it first came forth all that shadowed energy, returning it to the sun for repolarization.
Gentle yet tremendously positive, determined and persistent is the nature of God-patience, which is one of the many virtues contained within the flame of mercy from on high.   -Kuan Yin: Pearl 2:24

(Kuan Yin ascended perhaps in the 7-8th century B.C. from China.)  Training in the law of forgiveness is necessary for it is indeed the foundation of the Aquarian age.  -Kuan Yin:  Pearl 1982
  Soon you find yourself surrounded by lush pink, violet and purple lilacs.  In the midst of them you come upon a Chinese maiden.  She is dressed in flowing garments and carved jade adornments, and she carries a small golden vase covered with Chinese designs.  She glows with love and compassion….
  She turns and smiles at you, then lifts her vase above you, releasing pink-violet essence of mercy’s flame like a waterfall of flower-petals that caress and enfold you….You see your loved ones also receiving this waterfall of mercy’s light.  They are bathed in it, healed in it.
  As you enter deeper levels of meditation on Kuan Yin’s mercy you see her larger than the planet itself.  She lifts her vial of mercy above the Earth and pours her loving compassion over all sentient life.  This cascading mercy covers and penetrates the planet until it looks like a violet-pink sphere of gentle peaceful light.   -Messenger ECP:  Quietly Comes the Buddha, 1998, insert before The Perfection of Wisdom

  For it is the victory of Mercy that opens the door–and through it joyous families of light behold the first rays of the dawn of the golden age….Legions of Kuan Yin must go and nourish the little people of the planet….Through you mercy may pass to the lowest forms of life who cannot on their own reach up and grasp the hand of God.      -Kuan Yin:  12-11-1981 at Camelot, see

According to The Masters and Their Retreats by M & E Prophet, 2001, 12 pagodas surround the central golden dome pagoda of the Temple of Mercy over Beijing presided over by Kuan Yin, each pagoda focusing the yin-yang of the 12 Hierarchies of the Sun.  Before an ivory-carved altar a golden urn contains the mercy-flame.

  Long ago I realized that people did not have mercy for the saints.  They were all involved in these 
sympathy trips (to assuage their guilt trips), in their idolatrous loves and daydreams, collecting 
butterflies and other pet projects to the exclusion of the Divine–let the building of God’s kingdom 
on earth wait while they condemn their neighbor and bury their dead!  And it was and still is God who is the beggar!        -Kuan Yin, see http://books.google.com/books?id=fEsUJKQ4vXAC&pg=PA35&dq=clare+prophet+beggar&hl=en&sa=X&ei=n0HiUPuvF8PQiwKUwIDgDw&ved=

White Lotus Teaching; Kuan Yin focuses

 
White Lotus Sect (chinese:  Pai-lien tsung or Pai-lien chai) contrasted to White Lotus Teaching (ch.:  Pai-lien chiao or Pai-lien huai)
–latter founded by Mao Tzu-yuan (1086-1166), as union of Buddhist meditation (Ch’an) and Pure Land (nien-fo) schools.  He said Pure Land is located within one’s heart. Vegetarian; assisted by women and married monks.   Pai-i Kuan Yin, white-robed Kuan Yin.  They believed in imminent return of Maitreya.
