Prayer to Quan Yin

Goddess of Mercy and Compassion

Oh kind and merciful Quan Yin,
give me steadfast courage
to follow my heart

in my life’s journey,
even when it means
defying the expectations of others
to reach my true destiny.

Grant me vigilance and grace
so that I may recognize and alleviate
the suffering and insecurities
of those I meet along the way.
