Iranian People’s Sincerity and Passion in Spiritual Practice, Part 3 of 4 May 12, 2019

Iranian People’s Sincerity and Passion in Spiritual Practice, Part 3 of 4 May 12, 2019

So, if you allow me to continue to do retreat, then maybe some of your dreams will come true quicker. Your love is like children, clinging to mother; you don't let go. I told you last week or the week before, I said, I'm going on retreat for one month and three days. Didn't I? (Yes, Master.) Even if you listened, you still come more than before! I have to try to do many things, and balance it, but it's not always easy. I just hope that I can do more before I leave this physical body. I feel time is very pressing. And, "Master, I pass the message from our contact person, they send their love to You and they're really grateful for Your love that showers them every day of their lives." Tell them the same, that I love them. The Kurd and the Iranian, they speak the same Persian language? They are at peace now, right? "Yes, better. It's getting better, thank You."

Vegan Trends Around the World, Part 2 of 11 Aug. 05, 2015

Wow, so many! So today, no story. We just read all these, huh? It’s wonderful. It’s a vegan trend in the world now. “German meat giant Rügenwalder Mühle has developed a full vegan product line, including vegan meatballs.” “‘7-Eleven,’ the world’s biggest convenience store just went vegan with its sandwich spread.” “Veganz, a German vegan supermarket chain has plans to expand across Europe and US.” “British Vegetarian Society reports that currently an average of 5,000 people a week become vegetarians in Britain.” “In Germany, the equivalent figure is 4,000 people a week. But with around 7,000,000 vegetarians, Germany currently has the highest number.” It’s wonderful, huh? Good news? (Yes!) You guys have been diligent. The media also has to be thanked. They spread all this news. So the people copy and want to do the same.

State of the Five Worlds, Part 4 of 4 Feb. 28, 2005

The Third Level being, can manifest on earth in the flesh for fifteen days, two weeks' vacation. That's a long time! The Third Level, they don't need to eat. They also don't procreate. They can use their power to create any friend or family member they like. Fifteen days is their visa. Fourth Level beings, they can stay 20 days. Even without food. They don't eat. Even if they're in the physical body, they could also manifest their own food to survive in this physical planet. 20 days. And the Fifth Level beings, if they want to come here to the planet to visit, or to help in manifestation, manifested in a physical body, they can stay 30 days without damaging their spiritual essence. Without feeling much pressure. 30 days, they can stay.

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

I wanted to tell you that because not only American husbands, but other people, other countries' husbands, they're also very loyal to their wives. And I'm very, very happy about that. So, if any of you women complain about your husband, I think you should also introspect your style, your lifestyle. You must have love and wisdom as well. You have to be also sometimes feminine, sometimes very cooperative. Because if your house is not peaceful, it's difficult to find peace of mind. They're always in your mind and you go nowhere. Peaceful solution is always the best. So, even if it's your enemy, you just bear with it, because mostly, you love your enemy. That's the way it's arranged in this world, so that you will equalize the hatred that you had with each other formerly. That's how it goes. Life has to be about love. I don't wish you to come back but maybe you have to. If you don't long enough to go Home, then this is where you stay.

Vegan Trends Around the World, Part 9 of 11 Aug. 06, 2015

"The more I see You, the more I love You." I won’t die yet. But it has to be that way. Your body has to be reduced to rubble in order to save all sentient beings. It’s not easy. Not just the physical body is reduced to rubble, no, the spiritual body as well. Your spiritual body has to be sacrificed also, in order to change the (bad) karma of countless beings, countless, not just this Earth only. No. You went through but you have to come back. Running back and forth. You cannot go through and leave them behind. (You’re suffered a lot.) If one person suffers for hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands other people, million, billions of other people to be happy, then it’s well worth it. It’s worth it. Otherwise, what for do we exist in the universe, if we cannot help others?

"A recent study by the United Nations found that plants and animals are now disappearing at up to 1,000 times the natural background rate of extinction, with vital life-supporting ecosystems that could soon be irreversibly damaged. And then we have global warming." So the United Nations says something like, "The accelerating loss of biodiversity poses a fundamental threat to the survival of humankind." We have to do something. Make a law. Stop eating meat, stop fishing. Stop killing animals. "A no-meat diet would prevent over 60% of species loss as well." "Netherlands Environmental Impact Assessment", saying that, "A vegan diet can reduce climate change mitigation costs by over 80% between 2009 and 2050."

Buddhist Stories: The Layperson Who Offered an Ashram to the Buddha, Part 3 of 8 Aug. 15, 2015

Lucky for him, he had a son who wanted to marry. Otherwise he had no chance to know the Buddha. So he said, “Vice (Deputy) Minister, who is the Buddha?” Hô Di, the buddy-in-law to be, said to him, “The Buddha was a prince. And then even when He was born, He walked seven steps. Because He observed that humans have four sufferings, like birth, old age, sickness, and death, so He left home. He had been an ascetic for six years. And then later, at the end He became a Buddha. His Light brightens many corners, even brightens the whole Three Worlds. That’s why we call Him Buddha.” “But Vice (Deputy) Minister, why is it called Sangha?” So the vice (deputy) minister told him, “After He became Buddha, the Brahma king came down and requested Him to impart teaching to all beings. And after the Buddha accepted that invitation, He went to the Deer park in Ba La Nại country. And then He stayed there and preached the four marvelous ways to deliver yourself and others from suffering. …All of them, 500 persons, all liberated. And then these people became meritorious enough, and they had enough power to be able to liberate other beings as well. That’s why we call them Sangha, meaning the assembly of saints.”

“When I went through the Three Worlds, then I realized Your existence is really necessary. If we didn’t have You: no Master, no key, no God’s power, human beings would truly suffer tremendously, Master. They could not pass through the Three World. So at that time, I realized that You’re very, very, very important to humanity, to human beings. I know that Your presence, whether it is in the manifestation body, Dharma body, or Your presence right now is extremely important to us in the spiritual process and learning process, both inside and outside.” “I saw beings from above looking down and having so much sympathy and sorrow for You. Your sacrifice is indescribable. Not these words, it’s also beyond description. Therefore we don’t really appreciate the Quan Yin Method and are not really grateful to our Master until we enter there or until we see how strenuously and seriously Master has tried to bring the power down here from above, to help this planet.”

“So when I prayed at the Tree of Praying, I then knew that later beings on Earth will have peace and joy on Earth. And I saw human beings on Earth starting to appreciate God, and knowing Who is called Tim Qo Tu. They know Your name as Tim Qo Tu. They have a grateful heart, and our Earth at that time has…” Changed, future. That is the future. Sometimes if our mind is calm and quiet, then the Master’s power can take us there easier. When the mind is not very tranquil, then it is pulled this way, that way. She pulls us up and we cannot go up. We don’t want to ascend. Youth Source sometimes already exists in the Fourth Level, already exists at the Fifth Level, and the Sixth Level as well. But the powers are different. I also said sometimes it is the same place, but goes deeper.

And God will be present on Earth, but invisibly. Maybe visible to some few, OK? And that race also would be invisible. They don’t need a physical body. Maybe sometimes they take on a physical body to go around the world for some purpose. Blessing or something. But we will not be able to see that. "Can You tell me…I have some more questions. What is the reason behind cancer, apart from…" Maybe some loophole in your system. That it can sneak in. But mostly it’s from DNA. Some groups of people are more prone to cancers than other groups. But it could be even contaminated by others. Too much nearness to some patients, your patients. Somebody you took too much at heart. And that triggered a kind of so-called sympathetic response, so you share.

"Lord Stern of Brentford, United Kingdom, lead author of the Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change proposed the avoidance of deforestation as the most economic method of managing greenhouse gas emissions. Ninety-one percent of the cleared Amazonian forest since 1970, the lungs of our Earth, can be directly or indirectly attributed to cattle raising. And in fact the UN FAO stated that the livestock sector is the major driver of global deforestation." "A year without paper saves 8.5 trees," shrinkthatfootprint.com reports. "A year without beef saves 3,432 trees", just for one person. And The Guardian... "A diet rich in meat, eggs, milk and cheese could be as harmful to health as smoking.”

What is important is that all of you guys, you have to keep being vegan, and send all this message quietly also, as well as loudly. If you are vegan, your energy it keeps sending out the message also. Not just doing it physically, but quietly, invisibly. It also helps. Each of you is like a radio or a television, sending out waves of vegan. “I would like to share some experiences…The whole meditation hall, everyone had a spiritual tree shining directly on their body, surrounding them. When I saw that, I thought Master already gave each disciple a direct connection to the spiritual tree, direct connection to Heaven.” The spiritual tree is very bright. But their bad karma absorbs all of it. So, that’s why it’s thin. The more we practice, the less the spiritual tree is absorbed. Then it will get fatter and fatter.

Understand Emotional Ties and Transcend Karma, Part 2 of 5 Mar. 1, 2005

And life after life, we meet people, and sometimes we react with them, and they react with you. If it's good, then they come back as your friend or as your good lover. If it's bad, they come back as, you know, people who break your heart. We meet our acquaintances all the time, understand? All the time! It's not rare that you meet someone who strikes some memories in you. It's very difficult to realize who is who. Because life after life, you play so many roles, you get all confused, you know? Enemies, friends, love, hate, all kinds of things. So whatever mistake you make, it comes back. Therefore, there's always the Precepts to tell you to be careful. Some of you could have attained a higher level already, but you can't because of relationships. It might make you happy, but it might bind you, who knows? And this costs you sometimes spiritual attainment.

“Most of the time they are enemies?” You have to have something to stay together. So mostly it’s the enemy’s energy that makes you feel… strikes you. Like something’s there, so you begin to pay attention to that person. This is the force of karma! The guy is ugly, for example. But because of the karma, you think he’s the most attractive guy on the whole planet. Emotional bond is very strong. It’s not easy to shake it. Sometimes you get out of that relationship, and you pay something else. So, it's always a price. But sometimes it's the time you get out. If you feel really strong urge to get out, then that means it's time. Sometimes you want to get out but you can't, then maybe it is still too strong. But we are practitioners - you can be strong, strong will, and you have a lot of spiritual merit. You can pay a little bit for that so that you can get out.

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

“World Honored One, that Buddha, the Thus Come One, praised me as having obtained well the Dharma-door of perfect penetration. In the great assembly He bestowed a prediction upon me and the name, Quan Shi Yin.” “Because my contemplation and listening is perfectly clear throughout the ten directions, the name Quan Shi Yin pervades all the realms of the ten directions.” “The World Honored One upon the Lion’s Throne emitted simultaneously from His five extremities a precious Light which shone far throughout the ten directions to anoint the crowns of as many Thus Come Ones and Dharma-Prince Bodhisattvas as there are motes of dust.” “It was an unprecedented event for everyone in the great assembly, and they all attained the Vajra samadhi.” Suddenly, everybody sat all quietly, and all entered samadhi, completely out of this world because of all the Buddhas shining all the Lights to that assembly. Lucky people.

“Obeisance to the World Honored One. In the past life how did Ananda serve You? How did he know when to do what and when to give You what?” So the Buddha said, “A long, long time ago, limitless time past, at that time there was a king who ruled a very big country. In that capital city, there was a Brahmin man, Brahmin. And the king respected him like a teacher.” “So his first wife got pregnant. She gave birth to a son… I give him the name Great Charity.” “And this boy was very, very diligent and he loved to study. And he was also very intelligent already, so he learned everything by heart so quickly.” “One day, he said to his father, ‘Respected father, I’ve stayed in this palace a long, long time already. Please can I go out and have a look outside to see what the other people are doing?’” “A bunch of beggars…a group of people killing and preparing animals…farmers…hunters…the fishermen….” “Since then, since he saw all that, he saw that everyone was so ignorant and doing such terrible karma, he became very sad. And then he was thinking how to help all beings so that they had everything, not just physical contentment but also spiritually and mentally and everything.”

“I haven’t seen my father for 20 years. I wonder if it is due to the karma, or is it good or not good.” If he did something wrong, you forgive him. Because our real Father is not even him. Everything works out just fine. Whatever happens, happens. It’s not your fault; it’s not his fault. Just the working of karma. Sometimes, he has only affinity with you for two days or two years or five years, and the affinity’s finished, he’s gone. Sometimes it’s good to forgive. It feels good. Otherwise, there’s a knot in there all the time if you don’t open it. Maybe just have a look at him, and talk to him. You don’t have to always see him, but no need to hate the person. At least, he is an excuse for you to come into this world, and then you meet spiritual practice.

I want to tell you there's another Buddha who sits among you. (Wow!) This time you guess, OK? Whomever you pointed before, I want to ask you why, OK? Why? (He is very patient and tolerant.) But that is not the only requirement. I'm teaching you by explaining to you the quality you admired, whether it's enough or not to have it as a mark of a Buddha. Just qualities, just character. But we need more than that. Lots of points. When we say one level... It's not a number. It's a vast dimension of spiritual attainment. I'm telling. This guy. (Wow!) I knew it before he came already. I asked for a special ID. But he needed a little push, you know, afterward. There! We celebrate again!

The sufferings in this world are real, not illusionary. The world is illusionary, but no one knows it's an illusion. Therefore, the suffering is very serious. So someone has to come and try to save them, despite dangers. Sometimes there are traps. I'm just here because of people suffering. Otherwise, I know already it's nothing, nothing, nothing here. Nothing is anything here. Just because people don't know that, so I have to stay. The Earth people don't know it. So they suffer. So I have to stay.

Buddhist Stories: The Layperson Who Offered an Ashram to the Buddha, Part 8 of 8 Aug. 15, 2015

Sariputra and Tu Đạt (Sudatta), the prime minister, went to the Kỳ-đà (Jeta) Prince's garden and measured things. After measuring the land, then they began to build the ashram. They built one special high-level house with the kind of sandalwood, for smelling nice and also avoiding the insects to bite. So, it's for the Buddha, one special house, very high, for Buddha. And then, for the monks, it was a little bit further away, in 20 sections. The king and officials and others all came out with flowers and incense to greet the Buddha. It was so great a number of people. Everybody saw the Buddha and the all prostrated on the ground. And the Buddha came and sat on that dais, and emitting great Light to all directions and to 3,000 great Heavens. At that time the Buddha observed different people, different affinities, and different roots to teach them accordingly, as if a great doctor who knows different patients' sickness and treats them accordingly. So many people gained some benefit, elevated themselves to different positions of spiritual consciousness.
