Virgin Mary and Goddess of Mercy



Virgin Mary and Goddess of Mercy
The Virgin Mary and the Goddess of Mercy have lived both in different countries and at different times but both have amazing striking similarities.
The Virgin Mary is the mother of Jesus and is also known as the Mother of God and many other names but the one I like is Mother Mary. There are many visitations in different countries and different times but finally in Malaysia. In a news report by Sunday STAR, 11 November 2012 it was stated that “Catholics flock before apparition of Jesus’ mother on window” and in an article that when the person touched the glass, thinking it could be paint or something else. There was nothing.
Some believe that the Virgin Mary have a message after all she was called the protector of the poor and downtrodden.

Photographs of the image, which to have appeared several days ago, have gone viral on Facebook.

Similarly to millions of the Taoist or Buddhism fate, Goddess of Mercy (translation – Guan Yin) is in the same revered category. She is known as the one who hears the cries of the world.

This is a real life account of a friend’s story which took place when he was very young. In fact he was only 9 years old when Soo Kit experienced the particular occurrence. He was playing catch with his younger sister in the upstairs floor near his parents’ bedroom. When he suddenly a person flashed across his parents’ bedroom and thinking it was his sister, he happily rushed to the bedroom. Before he got to the bedroom, he saw a bright shimmering image covering from the floor to almost the top of the ceiling. As the shadowy image became clearer, Sook Kit was surprised that it was the face of the Guan Yin (Goddess of Mercy)! It was the same or similar image of Guan Yin from their altar downstairs. Suddenly the image disappeared.
An eager Sook Kit happily rushed down to kitchen to inform his mother. However, all he received was a trashing from his mother – for making up stories…ouch!
I have always wondered whether the Virgin Mary and the Goddess of Mercy is the same entity.
Any comments will be much appreciate…even the nasty ones ha! ha!

  1. Hi Christopher. I have an inclination that yes they are the same spiritual entity embodied/depicted in different forms as a way of reaching out and connecting with very different societies/cultures, baring the same message for humanity. What do you think? :)

  4. Yes, I think so too! When Guan Yin entered my life I was painting as a hobby and was somehow inspired to paint Mother Mary, even though I am not religious, and so I looked up some up the similarities between them. They both have many aspects that seem to hold the same concepts :)
