Yuan Miao

Yuan Miao

Yuan Miao was born in Main­land China into a family with a rich Chinese and Tibetan spir­i­tual heritage.  Her Chinese grand­fa­ther was a Zen master.  Her grand­mother, Yeshe Tsuomu, whose name means “Ocean of Wisdom”, was the daughter of a high Tibetan Rinpoche and herself an enlight­ened master deeply connected to the Divine Mother. She named her granddaughter Yuan Miao –the Source of Infi­nite Water– after receiving a trans­mis­sion from the Divine Mother.

She was Miao’s teacher, guide and guardian, passing down to her a precious ancient dakini lineage.

Many people are unfa­miliar with the meaning of ‘dakini’. A dakini embodies the divine and dwells in enlight­ened, spacious empti­ness.  She is able to mani­fest and transmit hidden esoteric trea­sures: trea­sures such as those of awak­ened conscious­ness. All these come from union with the divine and are them­selves mani­fes­ta­tions of the Divine Mother.  Exploring the prac­tices entails “going beyond all concepts” direct to the source; creation and culti­va­tion of direct personal expe­ri­ence takes prece­dence over reading and studying spir­i­tual texts and scriptures.

In her own life, Miao has had a close affinity with the Divine Mother – Guanyin  – , since she was three years old, when in a vision, she appeared before Miao as a tradi­tion­ally dressed woman holding a water-filled vase. She conveyed a clear message that she would become a guide for Miao.

Years later, Miao would have the spir­i­tual expe­ri­ence that radi­cally altered her life.  She’d become a successful docu­men­tary film director at CCTV (the central TV station in China), gaining worldly expe­ri­ence trav­eling exten­sively through China and other coun­tries.  Following a dream, she went for a visit to her grand­mother on the full moon in July 1985.  While looking out the window the night she arrived, she saw a large globe of light.  She first thought it was a lantern, but the light divided and divided again into smaller spheres.  Grandma recog­nized that it was a truly special event, and that night Miao received empow­er­ments and reve­la­tions from the Divine Mother and the high masters.

After­wards, changed, she had frequent mystical expe­ri­ences and began to spon­ta­neously prac­tice Shakti charged move­ments that she came to under­stand were expres­sions of tradi­tional Tibetan sacred Dumu, which liter­ally means “strong light”.

In 1991, Miao’s only child, her daughter, died from leukemia when she was only nine years old.  Plunged into the deepest despair, Miao’s faith was shaken and her will to live was lost.  She became suicidal, but the mystical events and visions continued, and she emerged from the expe­ri­ence reborn; like a phoenix rising from the ashes, she was able to realize the true reality of life and death, and become completely enlight­ened, having trans­formed her deep suffering into a vast well­spring of compas­sion and joy, a transmission she received from the Divine Mother.

In 1999, Miao followed the guid­ance of the Divine Mother – Guan Yin –  to leave China for the United States.  As she relates in her book, On the Wings of Phoenix Rising:

My high master once again confirmed her instruc­tions:
“Leave every­thing behind and go to America.”

I then asked: “What shall I do in America?”

The answer: “A foun­da­tion.”

Ques­tion: “The name?”

Answer: “The New Century Foundation.”

Ques­tion: “What shall this orga­ni­za­tion do?”

Answer: “The apex of human civi­liza­tion is created upon the merging of Eastern and Western cultures.  At that time, heav­enly bodies shall be aligned with the Great Pyra­mids and other key structures.”

Another ques­tion: “What time will that be realized?”

Answer: “Around the year 2050, human beings shall arrive at an unprece­dented culture.”

Following this direc­tive, Miao left her life and world and emigrated to the U.S. where she has created and directed the evolu­tion of the New Century Foun­da­tion.  Yuan Miao is imbued with precious Phoenix Shakti energy.  She is a both a source and a beacon of esoteric Tantric teach­ings, Mantric healing sounds, Yantric light-filled imagery, Blue Pearl healing energy and a panoply of spon­ta­neous enlight­ened forms of trans­mis­sion. Miao’s energy and person­ality are magnetic; her wide­spread orbit attracts people of all ages from far-flung coun­tries, cultures, and reli­gions as her teach­ings have spread in Asia, Europe, and the U.S.

To the many people who have been touched by Yuan Miao, she is consid­ered an embodiment of the Divine Mother, a dearly beloved teacher, healer, friend, mother, or sister.  Just like her name, the Source of Infi­nite Water, Yuan Miao emanates the infi­nite love from the source of life to embrace, encourage and support everyone who comes into her energy circle – together moving forward hand-in-hand and heart-to-heart, into the future – the new century.
