Serenity is Optional – The ‘Quan Yin’ Method

Spiritual Quan Yin


The Most Exact Science


Quan Yin or Kuan Yin is known to be the Protector of Women. She hears the cries and grants the requests of pregnant women, childless women and mothers.

A woman once told me an interesting story pertaining to Kuan Yin. This woman had been married for several years without children. The couple’s greatest desire was to have a child. She had gotten pregnant a few times, but only to have a miscarriage in her first trimester.

After various miscarriages, she felt defeated and without hope of ever becoming a mother. One day, she met a woman who transformed her life.

During a conversation, the woman said that she noticed a great sadness in her eyes. Instead of confirming the woman’s observation, she told her that she was fine. When the woman asked her if she had any children, she was unable to conceal her true feelings. When she told the woman she had none, a tear rolled down her face.

The woman told her to pray to Kuan Yin. Additionally, she said that Kuan Yin was very merciful, and had helped many women. Although she was aware of Kuan Yin, she never thought of praying to her.

She began praying to Kuan Yin, and soon became pregnant. Afraid of having a miscarriage, she prayed faithfully everyday. Nine months later, she and her husband became the proud parents of a baby boy.

After twenty odd years, she, as well as her husband, remain faithful devotees of Kuan Yin.


Quan Yin

It’s not that I invented the Quan Yin Method; I just know it. This method has existed since the beginning of time, when the universe was first formed. And it will always exist. It is not a method; it is like the way of the universe, a universal law that we must follow if we want to get back to the Origin, back to our true Self, back to the Kingdom of God or our Buddha nature.” In her book The Key of Immediate Enlightenment, it is said that those who recite her name would become elevated.

The Quan Yin Method, which is purported to exist in various religions under different names, as the “best, easiest, and quickest” way to get enlightenment. The method involves meditation on the “inner light and the inner sound of God”, or the Shabd that she claims is also referred to in the Bible and said to be acknowledged repeatedly in the literature of all the world’s major spiritual traditions.

The Quan Yin Method requires two and a half hours of meditation per day and adherence to five precepts borrowed from the Five Precepts of Buddhism:

  • Refrain from taking the life of sentient beings.
  • Refrain from speaking what is not true.
  • Refrain from taking what is not offered.
  • Refrain from sexual misconduct.
  • Refrain from the use of intoxicants.



Master Ching Hai initiates sincere people longing to know the Truth, into the Quan Yin Method. The Chinese characters “Quan Yin” mean contemplation of the Sound Vibration. The Method includes meditation on both the inner Light and the inner Sound. These inner experiences have been repeatedly described in the spiritual literature of all the world’s religions since ancient times.

For example, the Christian Bible states, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1) This Word is the inner Sound. It has also been called the Logos, Shabd, Tao, Soundstream, Naam, or the Celestial Music. Master Ching Hai says, “It vibrates within all life and sustains the whole universe. This inner melody can heal all wounds, fulfill all desires, and quench all worldly thirst. It is all power ful and all Love. It is because we are made of this Sound, that contact with it brings peace and contentment to our hearts. After listening to this Sound, our whole being changes, our entire outlook on life is greatly altered for the better.”

The Inner Light, the Light of God, is the same Light referred to in the word “enlightenment.” Its intensity can range from a subtle glow to the brilliance of many millions of suns. It is through the inner Light and Sound that we come to know God.

The initiation into the Quan Yin Method is not an esoteric ritual or a ceremony for entering a new religion. During the initiation, specific instruction in meditation on the inner Light and inner Sound is given, and Master Ching Hai provides the “Spiritual Transmission.” This first taste of Divine Presence is given in silence.

Master Ching Hai need not be physically present in order to open this “door” for you. The Transmission is an essential part of the Method. The technique themselves will bring little benefit without the Grace of the Master.

Because you may hear the inner Sound and see the inner Light immediately upon initiation, this event is sometimes referred to as “sudden” or “immediate enlightenment.”

Master Ching Hai accepts people from all backgrounds and religious affiliations for initiation. You do not have to change your present religion or system of beliefs. You will not be asked to join any organization, or participate in any way that does not suit your current life-style.

However, you will be asked to become a vegetarian. A lifetime commitment to the vegetarian diet is a necessary prerequisite

The initiation is offered free of charge.

Daily practice of the Quan Yin Method of meditation and the keeping The Precepts are guidelines that help you to neither harm yourself nor any other living being. These practices will deepen and strengthen your initial enlightenment experience, and allow you to eventually attain the highest levels of awakening or Godhood for yourself. Without daily practice, you will almost certainly forget your enlightenment and return to a normal level of consciousness.

Master Ching Hai’s goal is to teach us to be self sufficient. Therefore, She teaches a method that can be practiced by everyone, by themselves, without props or paraphernalia of any kind. She is not looking for followers, worshippers, or disciples, or to establishing an organization with a dues paying membership. She will not accept money, prostrations, or gifts from you, so you do not need to offer these to Her.

She will accept your sincerity in daily life and meditational practice to progress yourself towards sainthood.
