Supreme Master Ching Hai's Diary: The Living Masters Can Liberate All redeemable Souls, Part 1 of 4 May 5, 2019

Supreme Master Ching Hai's Diary: The Living Masters Can Liberate All redeemable Souls, Part 1 of 4 May 5, 2019

I'm going to read you some of my diary today. All this information came from when I meditated. For example, why Shakyamuni Buddha had to refer to Amitabha Buddha in order to save one of His followers in jail. And she was in jail and she was praying to Shakyamuni Buddha to save her, to help her, and then He appeared ― not physically; a Light body. Master has many bodies, can manifest a body anywhere when necessary, but it's not necessarily that you can see. A Master in the physical body can even use another physical body, but must have a physical body. When a Master is in the world, He doesn't just liberate the disciples, He liberates the whole world during His lifetime, with some exceptions. I will tell you which ones cannot be liberated.

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 1 of 6 July 14, 2019

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 1 of 6 July 14, 2019

What are four types? It could be also people; it could be also invisible beings; it could be also animals, pets. So now, I classify it all in four types of beings. Because we are all beings. The first type is very lucky for us if we have; they're called "Friends." "Friends" doesn't mean the social circle that you are in only; it could be your family members. So, friend is good for you. You will notice that they are very helpful to you, very coordinated with you. When you're with them, it's smooth sailing. And in our group, we have sixty-plus percent are good, truly, sincerely want to go Home and to practice goodness and to hear the Truth and try to implement the Truth in their lives. And the other thirty-plus percent are not so. And just like other Masters, when They came to our planet, They generously gave initiation and just giving everyone a chance to know this method and then to be able to practice. But not everyone took it seriously. The same with Shakyamuni Buddha. Even His cousin always tried to harm Him.

Spread Love and Help Each Other for A Peaceful World, Part 4 of 4 July 28, 2019

So, make sure that when you go out or inside your house, you keep your purity and love. When you go out, you go out with love, and purity, and recite the Five (Holy) Names or the Gift all the time. Then all beings will benefit from your love, all around you at least; whomever you meet will treat you with love in return. You will feel also love from them. I give them tip not because of money, but to spread love. In physical means, so that Hong Kong has more peace, more love. It’s not the money that I give. It’s the love and the peace through that gift. It’s not the food that I bring to them, it is the love that I give also.

Spread Love and Help Each Other for A Peaceful World, Part 1 of 4 July 28, 2019

I’m trying to do my best for the rest of my time on this planet. And all of you also, do your best. Meditate as much as you can, because there’s nothing else better to do with your precious time, as a human on the planet. And also help each other, please. Help each other. Not only does the person receive the benefit of your love, but you, yourself, also benefit from it. Any time you help someone else, and other beings also, unconditionally, you rise up. Your soul rises up; your noble quality rises up; your love expands. And that should be very, very beneficial to you, and your family and your clans, the world. I’d like to stay as long as possible, just to help more, help the world, especially to stop the killing karma, so that the world becomes a peaceful, loving place for everyone to stay.

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Six, Part 2 of 7 April 8, 2019

Thank Manjusri Bodhisattva, for concentrating all these 25 methods in a short poem for us. “The sea of enlightenment in Nature is perfect and clear. Complete, distinct Bodhi is a miraculous source. But when basic brightness shone so that objects appeared, With objects’ existence, the Nature’s brilliance ceased. Confusion and falseness bring about emptiness. Relying on emptiness, time and space take form. Thoughts settle, making countries and lands. What knows and feels becomes living beings. The emptiness created within Great Enlightenment, Is like a single bubble in all the sea. Lands like fine dust motes, subject to outflows, All come forth out of empty space. Just as the bubble bursts, space is no longer there. How much the less the three states of being! Returning to the Source, the Nature is not two. Many are the entrances through expedients; None of them does the sagely Nature fail to go through. Compliant or adverse, all is expedient. First resolve and entering samadhi, Come slow or fast as there are different norms.”

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Six, Part 1 of 7 April 8, 2019

The Buddha said that He wanted to cause Ananda to become enlightened. So, He asked Manjusri to contemplate all the 25 Arhats, irreversible Arhats, non-returnable Bodhisattvas, that told you 25 methods. "Could you explain it to Ananda and the assembly and the beings after my [the Buddha's] extinction, after my Nirvana, which expedient door is the best?" Means all good, good, good. so now, because He wants Ananda to be enlightened quicker. Ananda wasn't enlightened at all, at that point, and being with Buddha all this time, staying next to Him. Memorized so many, many discourses and miracles that happened within the assembly, within the followers of the Buddha. Imagine that?! So, intellectual cleverness or sharp faculty of memory means nothing. But we have to thank the Reverend Ananda for all of this.

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Five, Part 3 of 11 April 7, 2019

One time (you) come to see Master in the physical is more than enough. Nowadays, we have even TV. You can see me when I'm talking live. That's also almost like seeing the physical body. And also the Master advises the disciple, to at least come to see the physical Master one time, even though they are initiated by their appointed disciple. Even in Buddhist sutras, they also say, "To hear the Master's name and you see the Master's body, you'll get liberation – even a non-initiate, if they are pure at heart." But nowadays, we have television. It could be OK, it could be good. And real photos are also good. And maybe if the Master is powerful enough, that should be enough. All right then. If you cannot see the physical Master, then watch a video. Or watch something live like Fly-In News or something, when the Master was talking recently like two, three days ago. It also helps. It also helps to pray to the Ultimate Master, (give) thanks to the Ultimate Master.

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 2 of 6 July 14, 2019

Friends, they are always there when you're in trouble. And their energy will always lend you some help, even though you don't know it; they also don't know about it. But you just feel comforted when you're around them. And you two seem to get on well in many subjects. And of course, "Enemy" is the opposite. We are born in this human body and we are not allowed to know many things. Therefore, a lot of times we do wrong without realizing it, especially without anyone teaching us in advance, without a wise teacher to tell us what's right from wrong. And even then, if somebody taught us, sometimes we still can do wrong because the mind and the maya pushing it; and our karmic background from (past) lives coming back also leading us astray, making us do things wrong; or the situation forces us to do something that we don't like to do, but we just have to. All the Bodhisattvas and the Buddhas warning us that the Bodhisattvas have always been there to help us all the time, even lifting us away from hell, if we were repentant and sincere, and given another chance to redeem our mistakes.

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Six, Part 4 of 7 April 8, 2019

This guy, he is very wise. My God, for 25 methods he cut them all. He said, “All activities are impermanent. …I now say this, to the Buddha, who has revealed the Saha world: In this land the true substance of teaching resides in hearing the Sounds, purely. If one wants to attain samadhi, hearing the inner Sound is the best way to enter. …I now make this report, O Thus Come One, regarding what Quan Yin has just explained: It is like someone in a quiet place When drums are rolled throughout the ten directions, Hearing at once the Sounds from all ten places. This, then, is the actual true perfection.” The inner (Heavenly) Sounds, it’s not from any musical instrument nearby. It’s the original universal Sound. The vibration. Just use the ear organs, but not to hear with the ears. This is the thing. To hear without hearing, to see without looking, that is the best. But only you understand, because you practice it, because you are transmitted this Method.

Iranian People’s Sincerity and Passion in Spiritual Practice, Part 1 of 4 May 12, 2019

You're also from Iran? Wow! Originally, I wanted to stay in my cave continuously, for one month and three days, I have announced that. And then you still come, and I don't have the heart to not see you. For you, to go through all these troubles to come here, I am also very touched. That's why I came here, especially because of you. "Initiates in Iran have asked us to deliver their respects to You, and tell You that they love You very much. You are very dear in their hearts." Thank you. I just feel like, Iranian people are the most sincere people. They would never have even one iota or one nano portion of doubt in their hearts, once they follow a Master. They are so sincere, so pure. I feel that way. "Iranian people would sacrifice everything they have, wherever they sense God's essence and presence, and we have sensed the essence and the presence of God in You." The Iranian people, the spiritual Iranian people, they are so passionate like that. So passionate! It's the way they feel inside.

Over the decades, how much have I told you about loving others, and loving and respecting other sentient beings? Have I told you? (Yes.) You also know that recently, a few weeks ago, I went into retreat for animals. It's not like I didn't set an example of how I treat my dogs. Everybody knows how I treat my dogs, right? Whatever we do, just imagine it's us. Anything that we don't want to happen to ourselves or have other people do to us, then we don't treat others like that, and it would be OK. It's a very simple concept.

Supreme Master Ching Hai's Diary: The Living Masters Can Liberate All redeemable Souls, Part 3 of 4 May 5, 2019

The Buddhas and Christ, any Saint, rescue all the people, all the beings in this world, as long as They are in this world. And Their energy will linger in the world for 300, 500 years after, after Their Nirvana. It depends on how powerful the Saint was or is. All beings are or will be uplifted recently because your Master is stronger now. Except some exceptions, that I will read to you. All beings on this planet, as long as I live, as long as your Master lives, She will uplift them all to the New Land, but gradually; depends. But at least they're liberated.

So, if you're united together, helping each other, that's good enough. Other countries, they're OK or not OK; we cannot control them. Just be together, connect to each other, helping each other, honestly, sincerely, respectfully. Then everything will be fine. Nothing can just happen like overnight. Just together, Korea together. United we stand. I wish your country the best of luck. A lot of Koreans practice sincerely since I first came to Korea, and so your country keeps changing better and better. And we will have more Korean practitioners. The country's changing all the time.

Thirty-Three Heaven Gates concentrates on one little island. None of the countries have that much. No. Big ones don't have that much. You guys are very lucky, to be Taiwanese and to be sitting here.

And in any case, but now the only room I have is my bedroom. The bedroom is small, but it’s OK, good enough. A bed and a sofa and a little table. Today I thought, “Oh, I should have shown him my house, so he doesn’t have illusions that I live in a very well and comfortable house.” Even in the corridor, dogs are there. And the veranda, also dogs, so that they can run up and down when they are inside the house. So, I have only a little space to put these two racks to hang my clothes on. That’s my property, shared with them. So he thinks I live very well there. And every time I come in and out of the bedroom and I have to be very quiet. I do everything in the bedroom: praying, meditating, and eating, sometimes. I put medicine there and some necessary stuff. That’s how well I live. It just looks good, it’s not much. It looks very big, but it’s just the roof is big and the outside, the terrace is big, but all the dogs are there.

Actually, humans should be the most merciful because we are the highest. As you can see, no other beings are more competent than us, right? Our minds are intelligent, and we can invent many high-tech tools to make our lives more and more comfortable. Animals cannot do that. They can only rely on nature. They rely on Heaven to give them food. I really wish our planet well, and the world will become more open, tolerant, and peaceful. For that, I am continuing to put in effort. Not just for humans only, but for the helpless and beautiful animals who share our world, but not share our privilege.

I’m sure other countries’people also have faith, and are also sincere, but I just feel more passionately from the Iranian people, that’s all. I don’t mean other people don’t have faith. But I just sense something from the Iranian people, so passionate, so strong. I am very privileged to know some spiritual people who are so sincere like that. I’m sure the Prophet, peace be upon Him, would be very, very happy with you and bless you. And please go home and tell all the Iranian people that I really love them, I really think of them a lot. Then, before I forget, I don’t know if I’ll come out again tomorrow, so I’ll give you some more (vegan) cakes to bring home. Last time I gave some, but these are new people. You can share. You can send by email. To other people. Tell them with all my love.

The Quan Yin Bodhisattva continued to explain what kind of power and ability, Quan Yin Method, She had attained. “If there are those who are studying, who have severed the twelve links of condition-causation, and, having severed the conditions, reveal a supreme nature, and who are superior and wonderful and manifest perfection, I will appear before them in the body of one enlightened to conditions and speak Dharma for them, causing them to attain liberation.” “If there are those who are studying, who have attained the emptiness of the Four Truths, and cultivating the Way, have entered extinction, and have a superior nature and manifest perfection, I will appear before them in the body of a Sound-Hearer and speak Dharma and help them (to attain) liberation.” “If there are living beings who wish to have their minds be clear and awakened, who do not engage in mundane desires and wish to purify their bodies, I will appear before them in the body of a Brahma King and speak Dharma for them, causing them to attain liberation.”

Supreme Master Ching Hai's Diary: The Living Masters Can Liberate All redeemable Souls, Part 2 of 4 May 5, 2019

Why did the devas, the heavenly beings, praise Shakyamuni Buddha as having rescued numerous beings, rescued the world? How? Why? When the Buddha is in the world, because the physical body is connected with all beings in the physical realms, you are connected together in this physical dimension, one way or another. And then you take food from this world and you breathe the same air with everyone else, and you drink water from the world, and many other things. Every little thing connects the Buddha with this world. So, He can use that to connect with people and help them to liberate. That’s why. Because the Buddha didn’t just liberate His own disciples, official disciples. He liberated all beings on the same planet that He lived; as long as He lived.
