The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Feeling Skandhas (Continued) - Questions and Answers, Part 6 of 7, Dec. 27, 2018

I mean, not just this lousy world, like the Maya made, was all you got. Zillion times more glorious, and comfortable and you lack nothing, and you desire nothing; you just feel happy. And then from there, you can even bless the world because you’re more powerful. Not just we enjoy, but we can bless the world. And we can come back here if we want. But full of equipment inside, to protect yourself, not to fall again, and to help whoever you think you owe a debt last life, or who helped you sincerely.

It Is Very Important to Live a Virtuous Life, Part 1 of 3, Aug. 04, 2015

But I’m telling you also truthfully, that all this teaching from the Buddha, even though He passed away to Nirvana two thousand, many hundreds of years ago but His teachings is still helpful to you. If you are not practicing the Quan Yin Method, or even if you are practicing the Quan Yin Method, it’s a good reminder to read it. That’s why I tell you some of the stories. I think it’s helpful to you, to know how precious this is to have a human life and to be able to practice the correct method. Even Buddha had to go through countless lifetimes in order to earn it.

At that time when he smelled that incense, he already entered samadhi due to the Buddha’s blessing, because Buddha just instructed him to go meditate. The Buddha’s blessing went with him. Not just instruction by mouth, but the Buddha said something to you, blessed you. So, he went and he entered samadhi, but he still can smell the incense from his own nose. But yet he sees, he feels the incense is filled all over the ten directions. That’s why he feels it’s secret, private, for him only, but also everywhere. Because he’s already lifted up. He’s already lifted up. So, he told the Buddha that the adornment, the smell, the essence of the fragrance, fragrance in any way.

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Thinking Skandhas, Part 6 of 8, Dec. 28, 2018

So, precepts are the basement, are the foundation of our spiritual progress. Don’t forget. If somebody preaches to you against all the precepts, against all the moral standards, and says “everything is illusion anyway, you do what you want, there’s no sin,” then you must know it’s wrong, and that person is possessed. Stay away quick. Don’t try to convert him; you can’t. You might not be strong enough; you will fall instead. If you happen to feel like you’re possessed or maybe fell into some bad influence, call the Master to help you. Recite the Five Holy Names, recite the Gift, call the Master if you’re helpless; it’s safer that way.

Don’t worship anyone except God. Even if you don’t find any Master, if you don’t believe me, just worship God only. God Almighty only, or Buddha; I mean truly Buddha, in your heart. You just ask for the true Buddha to worship, maybe Shakyamuni Buddha, Amitabha Buddha,or God Almighty, or Jesus, in your heart. You hold on to that. If you ever doubt me, or got out of here, or got out of my circle, believe in God, believe in Buddha. Don’t go worship any lower god or even gods from heaven. They might mislead you and you’ll be in trouble.

Being Alone Brings Concentration and Happiness, Part 3 of 3 April 4, 2019

Not because I make a cave, so that I become a Buddha, or I become like an ascetic practitioner; it’s not. You just live according to your means, according to your situation, then you’ll have peace. Don’t try to force things, don’t try to be too much extraordinary, and then you will have no willpower anymore to deal with so many challenges in life. Just let it all be. I am very happy to have it, truly. I am not like punishing myself or doing it for ascetic reasons. Even if I do it to save merit, even then I’m very happy in it. When I go in there, and I work a lot already and come back, and if I can have time to crawl into my tent and be alone, zip it down, I feel, “Wow, such a blessing!” I really appreciate it very much.

Nothing that’s opposite or different can stay long together. Cannot bear the energy up there! Nobody will be able to pass through the border and stay alive, I mean, stay individual. You will burst into nothingness again. Your soul will be disintegrated, be gone, become dust, the moment you pass the border of the Sixth Level only. But you are lucky! You got the Gift from the Seventh Level! Who would have that? So in a way, even you could not get there, but you got the Gift - you are connected!

The two doctors continued saying, “In our mouths we have tasted many herbs, wood, metals, and stones of the Saha world. A hundred and eight thousand flavors. We know in detail the bitter, sour, salty, bland, sweet, and pungent flavors, and the like, in all their combinations and inherent changes." "While serving the Thus Come One, we came to know that the nature of flavors is not empty and is not existent,” not empty, not existent, “nor is it the body or mind, nor is it apart from body and mind. We became enlightened by discriminating among flavors.” Who knows why just discriminating between the herbs' flavors, they became enlightened? It's very simple, logical. You can be in two worlds at the same time, many worlds and physical world at the same time.

The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity - Refrain from Stealing and Lying, Part 2 of 7, Dec. 23, 2018

So, keep the Five Precepts. Always think good, do good, and help others if you can. Then you will be surely reborn again as a good human, have a decent life or maybe a rich life, it depend on how much you give and how much heart you have while you're giving it, how pure you are when you give it. You set your mind truly, firmly on the path of renunciation, and to help yourself and sacrifice for others. This is the symbol of sacrifice and disregard for your comfort, for other beings in the future. Because to be a monk, your ideal is to liberate others, to help others to understand the holy teachings, not for yourself only.

Also to wish all the mothers, the physical mothers, a very beautiful Mother’s Day. And since you have mentioned Father’s Day, I wish all the fathers the same blissful happiness that I would wish any mother on the planet. So Mothers, Fathers, have the best wishes from me. Enjoy your time on Earth, and thank you for the love you give to the planet through your children, and the sacrifice you made. Everything you do, it’s because of love for your children, and hence also spreading love for the planet.

Master’s Meticulous Care and Advice, Part 3 of 3, Sep. 26, 2015

Every time you feel like it’s not the way you want, go pray. Go in a corner somewhere. Wash your face. Cry if you want. Scream if you want in the bathroom or something. And then wash your face and then pray and then think about that. Or leave it there, do what you have to do at hand first, prioritize and think about that later and discuss later. Always make up before you sleep together, better before you go to sleep. Or you should have his room, her room and come together whenever necessary, wherever you like. So afford some space. Some people need that. Some people don’t.

The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity - Refrain from Stealing and Lying, Part 7 of 7, Dec. 23, 2018

The Buddha warns you, warns us that, if you don’t keep the precepts, even just one of them like the lying precept, saying the truth; if don’t keep it, if you don’t avoid lying, then you’re attempting the impossible. Like making a piece of poo become a sandalwood statue like that. If you don't keep the precepts, it is truly that extremely unfavorable for our practice. "If the bhiksus’ minds are as straight as the lute strings, true and real in everything they do, then they can enter samadni and never be involved in the deeds of demons. I certify that such people will accomplish the Bodhisattvas’ Unsurpassed Knowledge and Enlightenment.”

Doubts and doubts are different. You are doubting whether or not I teach you the right thing or not, whether or not you follow the right person, because you sincerely want to really find the Master, find the Way to be liberated. That is different. The spiritual doubt is always welcome, it’s very healthy. It is your birthright, and you must doubt. You must doubt until you really, completely prove it, that what you are doing, the path you are following is correct for you, because you have only this chance.

If not for God’s grace or the Buddha’s mercy, how can anybody ever make it? Look at that, so much meditation, one stage after another, and still in the Maya trap. And could even go to hell for that. Who can even support this system? But the way the world people behave, they are supporting it. They support alcoholism; they support torturing the animals. They support all the bad things. That means they support Maya. Because Maya’s making all this to seduce people, to entrap beings into the vicious circle of life and death, and punishment, torture, or hell, all that.

And stealing is also harming others in a different way, because if you steal somebody’s money or something that he or she needs, then you discomfort that person. So, these are unalterable rules of the universe that you must keep in order to be liberated. If cultivators of Chan Samadhi, do not cease stealing, they are like someone who pour water into a leaking cup and hopes to fill it. So, if you don’t keep these basic precepts, then no matter how long you meditate, it just keeps leaking out, gone, gone to the Maya power. The Maya will take it and use it to harm you and harm others as well.

In the old times, they don’t have these kinds of industrialized animal farms. They don’t confine them into little cages until they could move no more and all that. And still the Buddha said, “No.” Not to talk about nowadays, they just abuse them and force them until they could not walk, they could not stand anymore. This is really cruelty at the utmost. So, no butter even. Then this person who avoids all this will really transcend this world. “When they have paid back their past debts, they will not have to re-enter the Triple Realm.” For avoiding this, you will not enter the Three Realms, meaning hell, hungry ghost and born as animals.

As long as you improve your life, that means you have progress. Because the higher you go, the better your life. So, that means you have gone a little higher. You have to pay for what your karma is, no? Sorry about that. But at least you know your life improved. These miracles come with your practice, and the Master always protects you, at least whatever possible. Whatever possible. And (whether) the meditation improves or not, you’ve got to do it yourself. Otherwise, Master already helped you with the other things to facilitate your practice, so use that. So ease your mind, so you don’t have to worry about money, apartment problem, so that you can meditate better.

“This state is called 'when an agreeable state of Samadhi enters one’s mind, lacking the wisdom to control oneself and mistakenly engaging in lustful behavior.'” You are already so high here, see all the skandhas dissolve, everything is illusion, knowing this is nothing, and still fall into this emptiness and desire stuff, and doing wrong things, and leading hundreds of thousands or millions into wrong things. And slander the virtuous and moral people. That is the worst thing that you could do. That will earn you hell for a long time. I wish, I hope the Buddha will be merciful and save those people who are misled, at least.

Everybody wants to destroy the devil, and help the good, and clean the world and everything. Things are less simple. It’s connected all together. If you destroy one thing, it might connect with the other, and all are destroyed. That’s why we have to repair the universe; put things back where it belongs. That’s why the Master came down. Firstly, if I already take the trouble to bring you, to take you, then I’ll take you to the end. You’re already in my car. You’re not going anywhere. Must go Home. I’m a serious driver, no? I give you a real lift.

I came down to help beings. So it doesn’t matter if I’m up or down. It’s the same. It’s the love that makes me come down. The love makes me stay here still. The love makes me come back life after life to help whomever I can. This Maya, in the illusion of Maya, they’re pitiful. They’ve done nothing wrong. It’s just all traps and tricks and illusions that make them do things that are not according to their shadow, mayic law. And then they get punished. I have the fortune to earn spiritual merit points so fast and collect it in the higher worlds. So I help anybody I know, anyone that I know.
