Friends of Eternity - A Special Gathering with Supreme Master Ching Hai and Cherished Artists, Part 29

“So how did You first get into meditation?” “I meditated when I was even young already without knowing, without any teacher. And then as you grow up and you see so much suffering in the world, you just wonder why and what you can do. Then that's how I began searching - in books, in church, in temple, and looking for gurus and looking for answers. And once I found it, I just stick to it. There's no other way that I can help, so this is the best way, the Quan Yin (inner Heavenly Light and Sound Method). They liberate themselves.” “What kind of artwork are you focusing on these days? Poetry or painting or…What's interesting to You right now? “Right now, I'm not interested in anything because I don't have time. All the artwork or the poetry, I wrote or I made when I was younger, when I had less disciples. Right now, I don't really have time. Also, I have to meditate a lot. Our world is in danger. I have to balance a little bit with the negative and positive.”

We are privileged to read some of the heartfelt messages of gratitude sent by the artists after the “Friends of Eternity” gathering to Supreme Master Ching Hai and the event production team. Next is a message from the Emmy Award-winning documentary filmmaker, Lionel Friedberg, to our beloved Master: “Dear Supreme Master Ching Hai, This comes to You with my profound respect and gratitude for a life-altering experience in Taiwan (Formosa). I can never thank You enough for Your love, Your kindness, Your generosity, Your inspiration. I would also like to thank every single disciple and member of Supreme Master TV who contributed to the overwhelming success and impact of ‘Friends of Eternity.’ Each and every person contributed to the event and to my experience of it. Their roles defy description or measure. Everyone left an indelible impression on my life. Under Your guidance and inspiration, You have surrounded Yourself with truly extraordinary people. From the people who met us at the airport to the drivers to the everyday staff to the Supreme Master TV production crew to all those disciples who are helping to change the world, bring about peace and enrich their own spiritual development, I can never offer enough thanks. Thank You Master for enriching my life the way You have. Thank You for helping to bring enlightenment to this world. Thank You for connecting all those who follow You and practice Your teachings reach the higher levels of Cosmic development.”

A Gentle Stroll in the Classical Garden with Franz Schubert, Part 1 of 2

A Gentle Stroll in the Classical Garden with Franz Schubert, Part 1 of 2

Franz Peter Schubert was born in 1797 in what in today the Himmelpfortgrund area of Vienna, Austria. By the age of 16, Schubert had already composed an abundance of music, including string quartets and symphonic music. Schubert is considered to have bridged Classicism and Romanticism, and is rightly lauded as outstanding representative of early Romanticism also. In today’s program, we would like to share with you one of the most famous chamber music works from Schubert – the first movement of String Quartet No.13 in A Minor, “Rosamunde.” The first movement of “Rosamunde,” as scored for string quartet, sets off with a heart-pulling theme. The violins, viola and cello from a rich and soft timbre, with emotional fluctuations. The descriptive and soothing music narrates the first melancholy, then uplifting story of princess Rosamunde.

A Jubilant Celebration of Supreme Master Ching Hai Day, Part 3 of 4

Supreme Master Ching Hai Day reminds all of us to remember God at all times and to help elevate the World. I’m glad that the Ching Hai Day has, or had, or will have inspired you to do good things, to be noble and kind to all our co-inhabitants, including animals, insects, bees. These are helpful to us, and worms even. Because of this day, I was very touched. It dawned on me that this is a very significant day, significant meaning. So I wanted to really thank the American government today for this Day, as I truly understand and truly realize that they really meant what they did. This is what I wrote. “Dear Americans, When I got the ‘World Spiritual Leadership Award,’ I didn’t think much about it. …Because of this, because of this honoring ceremony and recognition, we have hope for our peaceful planet. Because, if the government of the USA is so pure-hearted like that, we have hope and trust in the government of the USA and the government in other countries for peace and the spiritual upliftment of mankind. It took me all these years to grasp the significance of that Supreme Master Ching Hai Day, 22nd of February, 1994. Even though I didn’t care so much about worldly fame, I am so happy today, to remember and thank the Americans and the government for this honor.”

Let's hear more from Ms. Williams-Crosby in her talk titled: “Making an Act of Conviction - With God[All] These Are Possible.” “Supreme Master Ching Hai. I want to thank You so much for allowing my family to be part of Your family. It’s a great blessing. And to be able to feel so much love and respect is a great gift. I stand here today because of an act of conviction that I made to God on September 19th, 1977. Well, I never looked back after that act of contrition. I’ve been a vegan for 40 years. I also now produce faith-based film shorts. And that’s my way of giving back by spreading God’s messages. So for me, I can’t get through a day unless I know I have connected. And Supreme Master Ching Hai, through all Your teachings, You have shown a great Light, inner pathway for people that have faith. Because then we get stronger and stronger.” “It's just like you want a strong body, you got to put a little resistance on those muscles to build. Our spirit needs a little resistance, a little trouble, so we can work through that. Because in times of great trouble, miracles do happen. Thank you.” “Wow! Very interesting.”

Mr. Paterson will kindly give his remarks and introduce his husband, the gifted singer-songwriter René Lamontagne, for a special performance. Mr. Paterson, welcome!“I want to say that it was such a pleasure to direct ‘Loving the Silent Tears’ because Your beautiful words filled us all with such inspiration that we enjoyed every single moment. It was hard work, but every time we heard the words that You sent to us that we got to play with and create with, it just took us to another level, it took us to a special place. Not only what You do with the world, but what You did with us. And I thank You for that from the bottom of my heart. From the time we got off the plane all we’ve experienced is love and it’s an exceptional kind of love. it’s a love that knows no boundaries or borders or color or race or labels, or nationalities. ” Wonderful. Thank you. Such a catchy and beautiful song.

Next, we have a very special poem recitation by our fellow Association member. She will read the poetry of Sheikh Baha’i, a 16th century poet scholar, philosopher and architect expressing the search for God through the Master. “I did not understand. but I feel so touched.

Please say my love to all the Iranians.” The next performance is a dance entitled “Song from Đồng Tháp” by fellow initiates from Âu Lạc. “Beautiful, come. It’s good, it’s good.

In this episode, we are privileged to read more of the heartfelt messages of gratitude from the attended guests to Supreme Master Ching Hai and the event production team. Mr. Mark Janicello, the famous Italian singer, actor and producer, told us: “It was a thrill to meet Supreme Master Ching Hai. I pray every day for Supreme Master. I am looking forward to seeing Her again. And, of course, all of you! I pray for every joint and muscle in Her body. That there is no pain. That energy continues to flow through Her out into the entire world.” Next is a message we received from Mr. Vincent Paterson, legendary director and choreographer: “Everyone, To those we met and to those we didn’t have the chance to meet - we had a remarkable experience. Being in the presence of Supreme Master Ching Hai has honestly altered us in many ways. Some we recognize and others will reveal themselves in time. We have become vegetarians. We both meditate daily now. These new practices in our lives are a beautiful result of having spent only a few days surrounded by so much love. Many of you paid such lovely compliments to Rene about his music. We wanted to share the video I directed of the second song he sang, You Should Come With Me.”

I wrote some more. “Dear all US presidents and governors and government representatives who honored me on that day and gave us this Day to celebrate and in other occasions as well. I thank you for the recognition, but my donation, which was my duty, or anything else I do good for the world or to any being, it was considered by myself as my duty anyway. And I’m always grateful to God for the chance, for the opportunity, for the fortune to be able to do these good deeds. I know surely, it’s not because of my donation; because your country is rich and powerful, and surely many others would be willing and happy to contribute much more to your government, or your citizens, or your country, for any cause, any time. My contribution was so humble, so little, compared to that. But I think it is God who had spoken through your pure faith and humility of heart. And I thank God through you, but I thank you also. May God bestow upon you honor manifold.” I thank all worldwide well wishes as well, and enjoyable performances today, as extra.

Our next guest is the Emmy Award-winning singer-songwriter, Faith Rivera. She has perfected the art of using lyrics and melodies to heal the heart and lift the spirit. She couldn’t be here in person, but she still wanted to perform for us via video. “Supreme Master, thank You for being such a force for good, a force for love, a force for light in this world and for inviting all of us to join You. Enjoy this song.” Academy Award nominee Stuart Sender is a brilliant documentary filmmaker whose work has taken him around the world as he explores important subjects like human rights and climate change. “We face a future where there is a real prospect that if we fail the Earth, we fail humanity. So we have to confront the challenges we face. This is a call to action.” We look forward to a future in which all humans live in harmony with nature and the animals.

Katie McMahon’s exquisite soprano voice has been heard around the world when she was the lead vocalist of the hugely successful show “Riverdance.” We also had the privilege of watching her represent her Irish heritage as a star in “Loving the Silent Tears.” Here to enchant us, Katie McMahon! “I’m just going to say how I have enjoyed being part of this lovely evening.” “I’m just going to sing a very short Irish unaccompanied song for you now called ‘Here’s a Health to the Company.’ And this is a wish of health and joy and love for all of you here.” Beautiful inside and out, Trina Parks dances, acts, sings and inspires. She is perhaps best known as the first African American actress in a James Bond film. Ms. Parks has also been a proud vegetarian and vegan for over 30 years. “Thank you so much for your praise and your love. And keep your love going. So, I can do this song ‘Believe in Yourself.’ I’m going to dedicate to You, Master Ching Hai.”

Now we will read Master’s affectionate letter to the artists: ”Cherished artists and love ones of October 1st, 2019, Thank you for gracing our place with your beautiful presence. You are still dearly remembered by all of us here in Taiwan (Formosa). And now we see you re-aired on our Supreme Master TV, we miss you. It's so enjoyable to meet and spend some time with you, though too short. Well! They say good thing doesn’t always come in big quantity. Your pure-hearted affection and loving aura made it even more so memorable. You are all truly loved here; not only because you are talented persons, but also because you are genuine humans; with high quality of love and warm-heartedness. Just a few lines to wish you well and success.” The artists responded to Master’s letter with more loving messages. “These messages filled my heart with joy! Thanks to Supreme Master Ching Hai. I love being vegan and I feel so happy to see Your videos and our moments together. Fabiana Passoni.” “You are the greatest Tzadik that I know. Your presence on earth brings light, mercy and enlightenment into the world. Your love embraces all of life, from humanity to the animals to the plants and vegetation and even to the consciousness that resides in the Earth itself, from water to the living soil to the vibrant and life-sustaining atmosphere. You have had a profound impact on my life. I bow in humility and gratitude before You and I thank You for making me feel united with the Cosmos through Your teachings and by Your example.

A Gentle Stroll in the Classical Garden with Franz Schubert, Part 2 of 2

During most of his lifetime, Schubert was not known for being particularly outgoing, however he did enjoy the company of close friends, including in the wonderful, cheerful summer of 1824 spent in their company in Zseliz, in what is now Slovakia. After he returned to Vienna, feeling healthy and with sun-brightened disposition, he produced one of his most famous works, “Sonata in A minor for Arpeggione and Piano, D. 821.” The “Arpeggione Sonata” is in typical classical Sonata form, with three movements. Schubert painted romantic colors with the music: lights and shadows flicker and flash, serenity and a sweet melancholy pervades, notes dancing with joy, and melody glides with soft tones. This sonata expresses a panoramic variety of feeling, with great beauty.

Next up, Mark Janicello, the multi-talented artist and acclaimed actor, singer, author, director, poet, painter and lyricist. We all recognize him as representing Italy in “Loving the Silent Tears.” Please welcome Mark Janicello. This is my song from “Loving the Silent Tears.” “Initiation,” please. “Your Light is reflected in everyone here. It grows, it magnifies, it touches all of us and unites all of us. What You have done for me, I will bring to the rest of the world. I have never met You before. But I feel I have known You forever.” And this last song before I say goodbye to you is the love theme from “The Finellis.” It’s called “Love Will Never Die.” “I will take your hand. You'll be in my heart. Love will never die. Because you're the one for me.”

And now, ladies and gentlemen, we have Kerry Walsh-a greatly accomplished soprano and flutist, who has graced our stage of many of our Association’s concerts over the years. Today, she will be sharing a few words and performing for us with her charming son, Michan. “And I’ll tell You a secret, Master, I have been dreaming for years of coming to see You in Formosa (Taiwan). So, I just feel this is absolutely spectacular. And what an evening and so much entertainment. And everything that everybody has been saying all night about how we have to just stop eating meat or the world is going to implode. And Master has spoken about how we’re blessed, and we get points and are blessed by so many living creatures in the universe, and by the stars and by everything that exists. So this is one of my hopes, is that people will grow some more compassion muscles, and that eventually that will lead to more veganism and more humane treatment of our fellow humans. And We’re going to begin with a Bach sonata.” “Oh! I really loved the sound. The flute is so beautiful. The sound is so beautiful.”

In Part 1, we will start with the welcome vegan banquet lovingly prepared by our Association members for Pyongyang Folk Arts Group and Supreme Master Ching Hai. “We, all of the members, are here to see You, Supreme Master Ching Hai. It makes us feel like going to see our mothers to our hometown in Korea. We could feel Supreme Master Ching Hai's love for us in Korea, even though You are in Taiwan (Formosa), since Your love impressed us and touched us deeply.”

“Supreme Master, thank You so much for having us here. It’s a really wonderful experience. And before we play the next piece, I just wanted to recount an experience that I had a couple of days ago. I was looking at some of Your artwork that You’ve made over the years and some of the photographs that You’ve taken, and I was having a conversation with two of Your disciples. And they were explaining to me in great detail, Your creative process and how You went about taking these photographs and making these paintings. And the energy that they exuded when they were having this conversation with me, impacted me in a way that was, I would say transcendent. I felt after speaking with them and experiencing, like the competence and the kindness and the compassion with which they spoke, I became like almost physically kind of elated. …So, I just want to say that the inspiration that You share with Your disciples and the people here is truly magical. And thank You so much for all that You do.” “And now ‘I Will Forever Love You’ and these words are very important and very comforting." Wow! Enchanting! Let’s all show our warm appreciation for Kerry and Michan Walsh.

“There was one bird who came into my garden. She was spotted all over the body. And she walked with me like she knew me forever. And one day I said, ‘Wow! You’re so beautiful. Can I show you on TV? The way you walk with me and friendly.’ She said, ‘No. Please don’t. People might capture me.’ Then I woke up, I said, ‘That’s for sure.’ They talk to me in such a way it amazes me in English, in their English. I mean inside, a telepathic way, not speaking. Their English is, my God, it’s better than mine. And they use words that I didn’t use before, that I don’t often use. Very high English. Oh my God. I can spend all my life with animals.” “No matter what I say, love is felt inside. I truly appreciate that you came from such a long way here. Despite your schedule, your family and everything. And without further ado, may I invite you to dinner, to my humble little kitchen. Let’s go now!”
