|Kuan Yin in Cholon, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam|
A couple of weeks ago I bought Alana Fairchild's gorgeous Kuan Yin Oracle Deck at Heavenly Energies in Willoughby, and I have been loving its beautiful imagery and heavely words ever since.
I have been working with Kuan Yin for the past twenty years, so have been interested to note a resurgence of interest in her recently in the West.
Here is a collection of interesting links that I have discovered recently all discussing Kuan Yin, the Buddhist Goddess of Compassion:
- Here is Alana herself giving a reading from the Kuan Yin Oracle Deck
- A great review of the Kuan Yin Oracle Deck from my pal Janet Boyer
- A reminder that Kuan Yin is at heart an androgynous figure who has always held a great appeal for Queer people in Buddhist cultures
- Sana Ako si Ricky Lee shares with us a beautiful Kuan Yin pendant
- A gorgeous video meditation on Kuan Yinhttps://youtu.be/MrbSCxOBkEI
- Some images of the Kuan Yin Oracle from Aeclectic Tarot, the go-to website when you want to see what different decks look like
- A channelled teaching from Kuan Yin from the Higher Density blog
- An excellent explanation of who Kuan Yin is
I will be covering the popularity of Kuan Yin in Vietnam (where her name is Quan The Am) at my upcoming one-day course at Sydney WEA called Vietnam: 4 Cities. You can enrol online here.
