The 19th day of the 6th lunar month is one of the feast days for Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy and Compassion. This holiday, which falls on Wednesday, July 12 in 2017, celebrates her vow to renounce going to live in heaven and instead remain in this world as long as there are living beings who suffer here.

Here are some simple ways to honor the day:

Great Compassion Water
Grandmaster Lin Yun taught us to take a cup of drinking water and chant “Om Mani Padme Hum,” one of the mantras of compassion, 9 or 108 times over the water. Drink nine mouthfuls first thing in the morning and another nine mouthfuls before going to bed while visualizing that any negative energy, bad luck or illness is eliminated.

The Practice of Loving Kindness
This simple yet powerful practice works wonders! If you’re not familiar with it, here’s my version for you here.

Being Kuan Yin
Let’s each of us be one of the 1,000 Arms of Kuan Yin. Choose a cause close to your heart whether that’s social justice or animal rights or hunger or gun violence or whatever YOU feel passionate about and take action in Her name.
