Goddess Of Mercy – Unusual Tale

Goddess Of Mercy – Unusual Tale

Hi folks! I have not been writing to this blog for over a year. Instead I have been writing to a blog titled “Unnatural Tales and Ghosts” that was set up my sister. So I really hope you will join me at my ‘new’ blog.

I have an unusual tale about Goddess of Mercy also known as Guanyim of Kuan Yin according to followers from the Buddist or Taoist faith. She was a person went through great love and sacrifices during her lifetime. Eventually she achieve immortality in the hearts of the suffering and she was also known as “She who sees and hears the cry from the human world”.

As I have mentioned in my previous blog, I believe that similarities to the Christian Virgin Mary and the Goddess of Mercy are truly uncanny. Even taking the differences of the historic timeframes, racial and cultural aspects the similarities in the resemblance and the remarkable lives that they led. It seems to be the same woman! Anyway it just a thought.

Goddess of Mercy (Guanyim or Kuan Yin)

Rosie’s son was having terrible nightmares and was hysterical after they had taken him to a park. The family had taken a day trip to a public park where little Timmy, 5 years old, suddenly was stricken and was wailing and crying uncontrollably. Unable to pacify the little boy, they drove back to their house but Timmy even try to run out of the car to their neighbourhood. When they finally managed to force him to the house, Timmy would grab his legs in a foetal position and just scream and cry. All he managed to say was that a ‘bad’ black figure floating and hovering around him.

His parents’ quickly summoned for a medical doctor to their house but he could not find anything wrong with Timmy. Rosie used to go to a Goddess of Mercy temple on Chinese festivals and they desperately brought a son to the temple.

After consulting with the medium, he chanted mantras (incantations used in prayers) and took a “fu” which is paper talisman to keep Timmy’s body from harm. Then the medium took a red ink from the temple’s altar and dotted on Timmy’s forehead.

There was a surge of relieve after the religiously procedures were perform, Timmy was back to his normal and cheerful self. The medium told the parents it was spirit annoyed about something Timmy unconsciously did.
