The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Four, Part 5 of 5 April 7, 2019

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Four, Part 5 of 5 April 7, 2019

One of my earlier monk acquaintances, maybe he was in the army or something. But he was in the whole group to be shot dead with another 12 or some more people, but he always repeated Quan Yin Bodhisattva all his life, even before he became a monk, just a normal monk, not a bhiksu, not a fully precepted monk. He did not die, he just fell down. Maybe later on, or maybe in other sutra, it says that whoever often respectfully recites the name of Quan Yin Bodhisattva with a pure heart and sincerity, fire won't burn him, water won't drown him, bullet cannot kill him. And so, he told me he believed it because it happened to him. Everybody else in the group died, but not him. The power of Quan Yin is very great. It depends also on your sincerity and karma.

So, the Quan Yin Bodhisattva continued, “‘World Honored One, because I served and made offerings to the Thus Come One, Quan Yin. So that Thus Come One transmitted the Vajra Samadhi of all being like an illusion, as one becomes permeated with hearing and cultivates hearing. Because I gained a power of compassion identical with that of all Buddhas, the Thus Come Ones, I became accomplished in 32 response-bodies and entered all lands.’” Means She became omnipresent. She could enter all lands at will, but not like the will of the human; the doing without doing, the will without will then. So, they pray and She hears everything. That’s why the Asian people, the Buddhist people, they trust the Quan Yin Bodhisattva very much, because She’s supposed to hear in all directions. She hears all the prayers and responds to them promptly.

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Four, Part 3 of 5 April 7, 2019

Quan Yin Bodhisattva, important VIP here. And She will tell you the benefit of practicing the Quan Yin Method. Not just why, but how She got power and what She can do with that power to help whom, where, how. “‘…there was a Buddha in the world named Contemplating the World’s Sounds. That Buddha taught me to enter samadhi through a process of hearing and reflecting. Initially, I entered the flow through hearing and forgot objective states. Since the sense-objects and sense-organs were quiet, the two characteristics of movement and stillness crystallized and did not arise. After that, gradually advancing, the hearing and what was heard both disappeared. Once the hearing was ended, there was nothing to rely on, and awareness and the objects of awareness became empty. When the emptiness of awareness reached an ultimate perfection, emptiness and what was being emptied then also ceased to be. Since production and extinction were gone, still extinction was revealed.’”

The monk continued, “‘I encountered limitless Buddhas and cultivated in this way until the coming of the Thus Come One, King of Masterful Penetrations of Mountains and Seas.’ ‘Then I finally had no body. My nature and the seas of fragrant waters throughout the ten directions were identical with True Emptiness, without any duality or difference. Now I am with the Thus Come One and am known as a Pure Youth, and I have joined the assembly of Bodhisattvas.’ ‘The Buddha asks about perfect penetration. By means of the nature of water, I penetrated through to the flow of a single flavor, and I obtained patience with the nonexistence of beings and phenomena and the perfection of Bodhi. This is the foremost method.’”

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Four, Part 1 of 5 April 7, 2019

Everything is about us, us, us. You have to turn it around. That’s why I teach them to offer to the Buddhas before they eat, not ask for something all the time. Turn around. Offer something. Be thankful. Always “bless it, give it, give me, give me.” That’s wrong. Now, the next monk. “The Pure Youth Moonlight.” “‘I reflected upon how throughout the body the essence of water is not in discord.’ ‘I saw that the water in my body was not at all different from that in the world outside – even that in royal lands of floating banners with all their seas of fragrant waters. At that time, when I first succeeded in the contemplation of water, I could see only water. I still had not gotten beyond my physical body. I was a bhiksu then.’”

Master Serves Disciples, Part 2 of 2 Sep. 20, 2015

You think my merit is immense. It’s true. But the world is immense, too. And your karma is more than immense. The people, not just yours but the humans’ karma is more, more than immense. Because life after life, generation after generation, the blood line, the DNA keeps continuing to revolve inside the next generation. Therefore, the more I save, the better – the more I can give. And the merit, I cannot take it from Heaven, no. I have to earn it right here. Many lifetimes here earning and giving at the same time. And in this lifetime I also had to earn and give at the same time, but too much, too much giving, earning little.

The people who did not eat this kind of fruit before, raise hand. I just want to give it to those who did not eat, you all ate it already, where? All countries have it now? Oh! What? (We haven't eaten from You, Master.) So you still want me to be a waiter? OK. All right then. I thought I could go and sit on the Master's place. But since I'm a waiter now, I stand here. Waiter, you know? Standing and serving. I just watched some good news on TV. A lot of countries open their arms to the refugees right now. I was very, very, very glad, very happy. Humans, I think, take turns now to become more compassionate. And I am very, very happy, very happy, truly happy.

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Three, Part 6 of 6 April 6, 2019

Maudgalyayana became a monk, shaved his hair, had a kasaya. “‘The Buddha asks about perfect penetration. By means of a spiral-like attention to the profound, the Light of my mind was revealed, just as muddy water clears. Eventually it became pure and dazzling. This is the foremost method.’” “Ucchusma came before the Buddha, put his palms together, bowed at the Buddha’s feet, and said to the Buddha, ‘The Buddha asks about perfect penetration. I used attentive contemplation of the effects of heat in my body and mind, until it became unobstructed and penetrating and all my outflows were consumed. I produced a blazing brilliance and ascended to enlightenment. This is the foremost method.’”

This one, “Precept Withholding Number One.” That’s why he became like a precept transmitter in this group. That’s what he thinks: precepts and controlling your mind, your body – don’t let it ruin you, don’t let it rule over you – is a method. Now, “Maudgalyayana arose from his seat, bowed at the feet of the Buddha, and said to the Buddha, ‘Once, when I was out on the road begging for food, I met the three Kasyapa brothers, who proclaimed for me the Thus Come One’s profound principle of causes and conditions. I immediately brought forth resolve and obtained a great understanding.’” Just to hear the cause and effect, he determined to obtain a great understanding, meaning he resolved… he must get enlightenment. You know something and you feel something, and you’re determined to get it, it’s another thing. We need a lot of cause and conditions to arrive at where we want to arrive. Just time, just the right time.

So, the Buddha taught him, Sundarananda, to contemplate on the tip of his nose. “‘From the first, I contemplated intently. After three weeks, I saw that the breath in my nostrils looked like smoke when I inhaled and exhaled. My body and mind became bright inside, and I perfectly understood the external world, to the point that everything became empty and pure, like crystal. The smoky appearance gradually disappeared, and the breath in my nostrils became white.’ ‘My mind opened and my outflows were extinguished. Every inhalation and exhalation of breath was transformed into light, which illumined the ten directions, and I attained Arhatship. The World Honored One predicted that in the future I would obtain Bodhi.’ ‘The Buddha asks about perfect penetration. I did it by means of the disappearance of the breath, until eventually the breath emitted light and the light completely extinguished my outflows. This is the foremost method. ’”

The Universal Worthy Bodhisattva arose from His seat and told that He practiced this conduct. So, He said, “‘The Buddha asks about perfect penetration. The basic cause I speak of in my case is listening with the mind to discover and distinguish at ease.This is the foremost method.’” Universal Worthy conduct is one of the methods from 84,000 methods. Some people practiced that, just to be really good, pure, morally fit, and meditating on the Universal Power. Only if you can. Only if you happen to tap into that corner of the universe where it houses Universal Power. Just like I went to different new Realms and where it happened to store Universal Power there.

Now, we have the next one, “Universal Worthy Bodhisattva,” “‘I have been a Dharma prince with as many Thus Come Ones as there are sands in the Ganges.’ ‘The Thus Come Ones, of the ten directions tell Their disciples who have the roots of a Bodhisattva to cultivate the Universal Worthy conduct, which is named after me.’ ‘World Honored One, I use my mind to listen and distinguish the knowledge and views of living beings. In other regions, as many Realms away, as there are sands in the Ganges, if there is any living being who discovers the conduct of Universal Worthy, I immediately mount my six-tusked elephant and create hundreds of thousands of reduplicated bodies which go to those places. Although their obstacles may be so heavy that they do not see me, I secretly rub their crowns, protect and comfort them, and help them be successful.’” Successful in cultivating the Universal Worthy conduct.

Saripurtra, “‘The Buddha asks about perfect penetration. As I have been certified to it, for the mind and the seeing to emit Light and for the Light to reach throughout knowing and seeing is the foremost method.’” So, I think he meditated on the (inner Heavenly) Light only. See? Nobody had the Quan Yin Method yet, not yet. And those who’re too sensitive to their ego, carrying the ego all over the place, will never go anywhere. Just a lot of work for the Master and for themselves in this lifetime. Because if you don’t progress, you also have problems in your life. And then you blame the Master doesn’t help you; you blame the situation makes you bad; you blame everybody else; blame God even. You don’t look inside yourself, don’t clean yourself. That is the problem.

Cherish God's Grace on Earth to Ascend Quickly, Part 5 of 5 Feb. 27, 2005

(Have You always known that You were from higher than the Fifth level? From even before You were enlightened, then…) Before enlightened, no. Just like the journey, OK. The journey to my house from here…here, house, huh? And you were alongside here, here, here, yeah? So I was there with you. But I’m going and I’m taking you, and you will be here on the Fifth, and I go up. Understand? So, I know it or not, I was there with you, so that I can take you. It wasn’t my job, but I was there because I was doing the job there. So before that, I was with you down here, and then I’m going up now.

You go to wherever you attain. If you are Third Level at the time of death, you go to the Third Level, or I elevate you a little bit more. After you die, I give you one level more. You have choice because you are a free, free soul. When you go, for example, to Third Level, you are free already, and you can choose to stay there as a Third Level citizen forever. But the Third World is not forever. The Third World is the free world. It's a spiritual, also free world, but it's not made to stay forever. The Fourth Level is forever. The Fifth Level is forever.

I'm not a Master, really. It's not my job. I come to repair the planet. Just by the way, I give you a lift Home because I'm going there. I'm going past your direction, past your House. Master is the job of the person on the Fifth Level, OK? But because it's already established like that, so I use that title to help you. But every country, every life I go on the planet, sometimes I use the title to work. Sometimes I don't. I am always a Master, of course, but not by profession. And sometimes it’s because if a mass, majority, then they call me Master. Of course, if I teach them meditation, they call me Master. But it doesn’t mean that I am the Master of the Fifth degree, the Fifth Level.

If everybody did what I told, even if they were in Astral Level at the time I initiated them, they all go into Third Level now. I told you! Believe it! So if anybody’s still lagging now, it’s their own fault! So much blessing, so much gift have been given to them, and they don’t utilize it, or they waste it all on anything else except spiritual practice. That’s why they are still hanging around there. Anything below Third Level is maya. Even at the border, it’s not sure. You see, one step here, maya; one step here, Master; maya…Master. So you have to go high, understand? Otherwise, you cannot see me.

The ones who are lifted up to the Fifth level by grace, by help from the Master, be aware! Anything can drag you down. People worship you, people prostrate to you, people offer you too much, you take things from people, or you use your position to bypass some spiritual law or something, then you will go, you’re gone. And suppose if you initiate people, and you think it’s you who initiate, you also go, very quick. Because the maya can deduct that. It’s the law.

"'From distant kalpas until now, my mind has been unobstructed. I remember as many of my past lives as there are sands in the Ganges River.'" "'Having received the Thus Come One's revelation that the enlightened nature is true emptiness - that the nature of emptiness is perfect and blight - I attained Arhatship and suddenly entered into the Thus Come One's sea of magnificent, bright emptiness. With knowledge and views identical with the Buddha, I was certified as being beyond learning. In the liberation of the nature of emptiness, I am unsurpassed. The Buddha asks about perfect penetration. As I have been certified to it, all appearances enter into nothingness; nothingness and what becomes nothingness both disappear. Turning phenomena back to the void is the foremost method.'" Contemplating on the emptiness of all things and then even forsaking the emptiness, that's his method.

Another man came called Gavampati, and he had a problem with the mouth. It looked like a cow-cud, cow mouth. So, the Thus Come One taught him “mind-ground Dharma-door of the purity of a single flavor,” and then he became enlightened. "'The Buddha asked about perfect penetration. As I have been certified to it, returning flavor and turning awareness around is the superior method. '" What’s “returning the flavor and turning awareness around?” Instead of looking outward, you turn your attention inward and look inside instead. So, whatever flavor it is, you return it to the origin of all flavors. Whatever, if you have either flavor or fragrance, it doesn’t matter. Once you turn your attention inward then you’re in samadhi, you’re free. Flavor or not, smelling fragrance or not, that’s what it is. The secret is turning inside to the real world, not the physical illusion world here that we have.
