From the Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards ( Doreen Virtue )
“If you don’t love yourself, you cannot love others. You will not be able to love others. If you have no compassion for yourself then you are not able of develop compassion for others.” His Holiness The Dalai Lama
This card is inviting you to feel the presence of Kuan Yin (also known as Avalokitehvara) in your life and in your actions today. Buddhists all over the world honor her as the face of compassion and see her as a protectoress. The Bodhisattva Kuan Yin is closely associated with the Heart Sutra. This Sutra is a truly beautiful and powerful prayer. A prayer chanted to release all sentient beings from suffering of any kind. Monastics and Lay Buddhists chant it daily. His Holiness The Dalai Lama will often instruct his Monks to repeat it 100 times over, sometimes more, when a catastrophic event takes place in the world. It is said Kuan Yin returned from the Pure Land to the earthly realm to relieve suffering.
She is here today to remind you to be kind to yourself. It is a time to release all harsh judgments you have made about yourself and others.
A time to release all feelings of guilt and shame. It is a time to focus on the love and light that is within you – your Buddha nature for we are all Bodhisattvas’.
