The Right Balance of Inner Heavenly Light and Sound Meditation Brings Spiritual Progress Feb. 21, 2019

00:28:58

The Right Balance of Inner Heavenly Light and Sound Meditation Brings Spiritual Progress Feb. 21, 2019

You have to regulate the energy. You have to let the energy go all the way up to the third-eye, and then the crown chakra on top of your head. Otherwise, if you don’t meditate enough on the Sound, then the energy is stuck somewhere else. Maybe it’s stuck in the solar plexus or stuck in your throat center, and it should be getting out, all the way up to the head, and getting out and circulating. So, meditate on the Sound, proportionate with the Light is very, very, very important. For your peace also, not just for your spiritual progress, but also, peaceful life. And also, for the wisdom to develop more, because of the balance of the energy inside.

The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity (Conclusion) & Establishing a Place for Awakening, Part 4 of 8 Dec. 24, 2018

The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity (Conclusion) & Establishing a Place for Awakening, Part 4 of 8 Dec. 24, 2018

The teachings and the lineage of the spiritual power of any Mater, it’s like a river. Sometimes, it’s hidden under the earth somewhere, and you think this is the end of the river. No, no, it will seep out somewhere and then appear again; so it is like that. Any of the religious people should look where the river reappears, and do not be attached to a location of the original river, because in all ages, all religious branches, there will always be a Master somewhere. It may not be in the same lineage, not be in the same religious order, but there will be a Master for the world, for our world.

The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity (Conclusion) & Establishing a Place for Awakening, Part 3 of 8, Dec. 24, 2018

Sometimes, the comfortable place doesn’t mean a good place. You might not have peace at the end; not peace within yourself only, but peace with other coordinating people. “Whatever is good for the world, and good for other people, then I would do it, no matter what.” And now, He’s talking about Ananda’s private life, “Your past lives with Matangi’s daughter created accumulated kalpas of causes and conditions. Yet, as soon as I proclaimed it, she was freed forever from the affection in her heart and accomplished Arhatship.” For you it should be as easy as tossing dust into a favorable wind.

Keep Replenishing Our Protection Power and Be Unconditional, Part 1 of 2 July 5, 2018

Here is the best for you. Outside maybe you earn a lot of money but then you will spend a lot also, sweating around just for something; not as good as here. Here you are working to spread the good teaching. That’s the best merit. If you don’t believe me, you ask the Buddha. You can ask the Sutra. The Sutra is what the Buddha pronounced. He said, “Donating Dharma,” meaning the True Teaching. It’s the best donation, the best offering. You get the best merit. Without any bad karma or good karma attached to it; means pure, pure spiritual merit. And then you can go up higher.

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Form and Feeling Skandhas, Part 1 of 9, Dec. 26, 2018

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Form and Feeling Skandhas, Part 1 of 9, Dec. 26, 2018

So, when you practice the Tao, or the Truth, or the Dharma, the Way, you will encounter ten kinds of samadhic experiences from inside. And then you may mistake these for some ultimate enlightenment. And thus, some of the demons who are correspondent to your state of mind or samadhic experience at that time, they may enter you. They may be around you. And then they will mislead you, make you think that you already attain the complete Tao or the complete enlightenment, but not yet. So, the Buddha warned His monks at that time. This is our ten states of mind.

So, watch all the time, your mind, because your mind is tricking you all the time, due to habit, due to the company you keep, due to the job that you are doing, due to your surroundings, due to your family tradition or kind of lineage or just habit. So, watch it all the time. This is the most difficult to watch, because we always make excuses when we want to do something, we say, “Oh, I do that because of that, because of this.” Whether or not it’s true, you don’t care, and that is also lying; should not. Always watch our mind. The Buddha said that “If monks’ minds are as straight as the lute strings, true and real in everything they do, then they can enter Samadhi and never be involved in the deeds of demons. I certify that such people will accomplish the Bodhisattvas’ Unsurpassed Knowledge and Enlightenment.”

Break the Habits, Be a Real Saint, Part 1 of 5, Feb. 24, 2005

We used to be more civilized. But then, if we don’t balance our knowledge with wisdom, and we don’t balance the material gain with the spiritual success, Too much intellectual knowledge, but no spiritual wisdom, then just at war with each other. It’s just the power. It’s just the power of renunciation that you get from me whenever you are near. You don’t have to be a resident in order to do my work or to serve other people. Just stay the way you are, help other people, and then that is a resident.

Everything’s changed – the world’s changed, I’ve changed, you’ve changed. Everybody must change. We catch up, OK? I look the same, but I am not the same anymore. Everything has changed, the inner concept has changed, and my way has changed. My way has changed, you must change. My way has changed, you must change. Change the way you think, change the way you treat life, change the way you treat yourself, change the way you treat the meditation. You must make it the most important thing in your life! Even though I told you before, this time it’s not the same. I really mean business.

Just be honest, sincere, genuine. Be natural. Selfishness always makes you lose points. Everything that concentrates to try to get things for yourself alone, you lose everything! Whereas if you try to serve other people with love and with unconditional devotion, you gain. Because whenever you offer yourself to other people, even one person, you expand. Your energy, your aura, expands at least into that person’s area. The more you serve, the more you expand! You’re bigger!

The precepts are very important, not only for nuns and monks, but for you as well, if you want to be liberated while you are taking care of your duties in the world according to your karma. Not everyone can be nuns and monks, of course. It's a very difficult undertaking. It's very difficult. It needs a lot of discipline, a lot of training yourself, a lot of self-introspecting, a lot of sacrifice of personal taste, personal freedom. Everything! Many things, many things.

“Ananda, if any one of the monk’s precept transmitting masters or any one of the other monks practicing with him is not pure, then the Bodhimanda as described will not be successful.” Even if you don’t sleep for three months, even if you’re pure, who knows if the bhiksu giving you the precepts is pure or not pure? Therefore, even if you have all that from one of the monks, all the precepts, you can never be sure. This is the problem. You should always choose your birth whenever a living Master is born, so that when you grow up, you time, your age, you come of age, then you can go and grab that Master and quick. Not doing all this.

Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra: Benefiting the Living and the Dead, Part 1 of 5 Aug. 11, 2015

This is for the people who are ignorant, who have no refuge in anyone, who have nowhere to go, no one to believe in, no one to rely on. So, you are the ones who probably have to help these kinds of people so that they don't fall to hell. Because if nobody prays for them at the time of death, nobody tries to do good things and forward this merit to that soul, then he goes to hell, or goes to a bad reincarnation. That's why you see all the churches and all the religions, all the Buddhist monks and nuns always busy praying for the dead.

You work here; you have a lot of merits. Understand? The best merit you can have for yourself, and for your ancestors, and your parents. So, you are the most filial sons or daughters of your family. Even though you don’t earn money or give them material comfort, you do the best. Like the Buddha, like His monks. Understand? Even one of His monks rescued his mother from hell. You remember that story? Just because he was a monk, he had enough spiritual power. Also with the help of other monks. Even the Buddha said He cannot. Remember that?

Equanimity Of The Buddha: The Story of Ni Đề, Part 1 of 4 Aug. 11, 2015

Whenever you quarrel or you do things negative to each other or have such negative feelings or energy, then you make a hole in your protective net of your center and your community. And then the negative can seep in and make more troubles. I don’t take any money from any of you. You never heard me come knocking at your door or saying, “Please, I need this, I need that.” All I do is just provide all the time, everywhere, wherever I can. I provide many centers from my own fund. And I have to also help with the disaster relief. I also helped pay off for the Supreme Master TV.

Enemies often come back together, so that they learn love. They learn to love each other. They had become enemies because they had no love. So, often, they come back as husband and wife, as lover, mother, son, sister, brother, to learn to love! Because family members, naturally you just love. And only love can solve the enmity of the past life. That’s why they often come back as family members or lovers. I suffer more than you do, believe it. Only, I don’t talk. Even if I talk, it’s never enough to describe it.

The Surangama Sutra: The Origin of Demonic States, Part 7 of 7, Dec. 25, 2018

So, all these demons and ghosts, even the kings of demons, powerful in heaven, they are still imprisoned by this worldly passion and possessiveness. While you are in Samadhi, you are enjoying connecting with the Buddha Power, with your own Buddha Nature inside. You enjoy, you are pure, you are uplifted. “Therefore, they cannot affect you any more than a blowing wind can affect light, or as if a knife cannot cut through water.” Keep your mind straight, recite the Five (Holy) Names all the time when you meditate. No desire of anything; no thinking of even desiring anything; nothing; just want liberation, want to know your Buddha Nature.

If we have some reverent beings, we have to treat them nicely. You must know. I always tell you, a long time already, so you do always the same. The monks and nuns sit somewhere separate, as separate as possible. We have to protect them, protect their purity, for you. It’s not like I love them more than I love you. It’s just they need to be a little distant. You go home, you just sit with anybody, hug each other, sleep with each other, but they are different. They need to be separated. Because we can influence them with some of our negative thinking, impure energy.

If you ever want to be a Buddha, it’s just because of your compassion. You wish that you could have some power, so you can help somehow. That is the only reason that you want to be a Buddha. Pray always for protection and help, so that your ego will not harm you in any way. So that your compassion will grow and grow and grow. So that wherever you go, you spiritual blessing and power will influence people for the better. We spiritual practitioners must have only one goal in mind: that’s to benefit others. A small way, a big way, whatever way we can. Better we don’t even know it, so our ego doesn’t make our nose become higher.

Even the Maya and demons are strong, but you are stronger, remember. You are the Buddha. Remember that. You have Buddha inside. Call unto that Buddha, Master Power, to protect you all the time. If you think if the Buddha, you’re connected with the Buddha. Even if you’re not strong enough to protect yourself, the Buddhas protect you, the Saints, all the Saints in all directions. Just like a prince, he will be a king, but he is still an infant, and he’s vulnerable, but his parents are king. They protect him if he calls.

I’m in here. The best. The best is that you are with me all the time, 24 hours. That means you meditate, you be good, you treat others well, you remember God. And that’s it! That’s how we are together – we look into the same direction. Remember they say love is not looking into each other’s eyes, but looking into the same direction. That is very correct. So long as we do the same thing, we think the same thing, we are always together. And later, we are all together all the time, forever.
