Equanimity Of The Buddha: The Story of Ni Đề, Part 3 of 4, Aug. 11, 2015

Equanimity Of The Buddha: The Story of Ni Đề, Part 3 of 4, Aug. 11, 2015

So humble, so humble, and she meditates 10, 12 hours, 6 hours at least per day. And she plants her own vegetables to eat, she never buys outside anymore because she said she cannot swallow and cannot digest otherwise. Became so sensitive after meditation too long. The more you meditate, the more humble you become. You realize who you are and who your Master is and how the teaching helps you, then you’ll be more humble, humble, very humble! So, being humble doesn’t mean you lower yourself. No, it’s not like that. The culture teaches differently outside. In spiritual practice you don’t do that. Because it’s just natural that you become more humble.

Buddhist Stories: The Nun Wonderful, Part 4 of 5 Sep. 04, 2015

“Reverend mother, in the past life, what kind of sin did you commit so that in this lifetime, you suffer so much? Please, can you tell us, so that we can learn something?” “Because I did not know about the karma and the consequences of karma. Therefore, I wickedly killed the baby son and I swore as if nothing will happen. Therefore in this lifetime, I had to suffer that much, as exactly as what I have wished in my terrible oath.” “But what kind of good deeds have you done in a former life, so that in this lifetime you are fortunate to meet the Buddha, and even attain a liberating level of consciousness?” “Because I was so sincere and respectfully made offering to this saintly being. And then I vowed, I prayed to attain a high spiritual level like He did.” They’re two different things. Merit, you can enjoy; but sin, you must still pay, endure. Yes, that’s what it is.

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

“Everyone, every person in the world, doesn’t matter if he’s noble or lowly, rich or poor, all of that is because of their karma in the past. You sow the good karma or wicked karma. The person who are very humane and moral, humble, respect the superior, and tolerant to the lower subordinate, these are noble.” He means all this nobility lineage, richness and all that is not really a noble lineage. The person who is such and such is really from noble lineage, really can be called noble person, aristocrat. “Anyone who is wicked and violent, or stubborn, rude, impolite, or very arrogant, doesn’t know which is right, which is wrong, that is the lowly person, stupid, idiot.”

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Two, Part 4 of 6 April 5, 2019

"'So the Buddha took pity on my stupidity and taught me to relax and regulate my breath.'" "'I contemplated my breath thoroughly to the subtle point, in which, arising, dwelling, change, and extinction happen in every ksana.'" "'My mind suddenly attained vast non-obstruction, until my outflows were extinguished and I accomplished Arhatship. Beneath the Buddha's seat I was sealed and certified as being beyond learning.'" "'And the Buddha asks us about perfect penetration. As I have been certified to it, turning the breath back to emptiness is the foremost method.'" The Buddha said 84,000 methods. So, the Buddha taught him this breathing method. But it is not the normal-like breathing that you get enlightenment; it’s not. Have to turn it back to the emptiness. There is no more breath at all that exists. Before the breath even comes, that’s the original emptiness.

“You cannot even imagine how many lifetimes I’ve had, and how many lives I’ve died, how many lives I was born. But I have not done anything good with the bodies that I had, through my life and through my death. So if this time, today, I could use my skin to help you and many other people, then that’s the best thing. That makes me very happy. I, myself, sincerely sacrifice this skin and the fur to save many lives. May my merit be shared among all beings so that they will be able to be liberated, and stay away from the birth and death and all the suffering, and then they will go to Nirvana.”

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: The Demonic States of the Thinking Skandhas, Part 7 of 8, Dec. 28, 2018

It’s so difficult to discern between a ghost and a Buddha or a Saint, because the Saint, normally, They don’t even use any power, don’t predict much. Even just to want to know past lives, you’ll be in trouble too. There was one Master in Korea a long time ago, He didn’t teach much to his disciples. He said, "Whatever happens or turbulence goes into your mind, you just say, ’Don’t know.’ " He wanted to break all of the trains of thought of his disciples,which was also maybe helpful. But don’t just “don’t know” anything, all right? You know you should be good, keep the precepts, meditate, eat vegan.

Buddhist Stories: Brahma Asks for Dharma, Part 1 of 4 Aug. 04, 2015

Because the Brahma King knew very well that Buddha really did not want to stay on this planet. The beings here were so stubborn, so covered with ignorance and wrong concepts, so very difficult to teach. So, He just looked around in the whole world and feeling that it was a waste of time so He wanted to go, truly go to Nirvana. So after the Brahma God came down and begged Him to stay already, He still said the same thing. Remember? So, the Brahma continued to persist, persist. “Remember, remember, remember You did that. Remember You did this, just for one stanza, just for one sentence of Truth. And now You’ve already attained Buddhahood, why do You want to leave? Why You don’t remember why You sacrificed?” So, he kept continuing telling similar stories.

Amazing Beings, Part 1 of 3 Feb. 27, 2005

I have a Rottweiler. He's very naughty, so smart, very loving, very protective, very intelligent, and very snuggling, snuggling, but stubborn. He knows this is his house. He knows I love him. And if a smaller dog comes, he's very gentle. He plays tug of war with them with the toys, but he never really yanks them and runs away and all that. Never. And the small guy always wins, because he gives in. He's really cute when you observe. And he talks, and he's very protective. That's why when I first came here, the next day, he told the dogs here, "Take care of my Master." And they all came and sat in front of my trailer, waiting to say hallo.

Some dogs have gifts to bring along with them. And whoever’s nice to them, they give it to them. Cats mostly came from Astral Level, so they have magic power. They are very psychic. Cats are very psychic. Dogs are very loyal, and have a lot of good sense and intellect, because they came from Second Level. They are beings from Second Level who came down specially for some reason. Mostly to help their friends or relatives still there, or something like that, or some attachment somewhere. Cows are from almost the Fifth Level, border of Fourth and Fifth. Cows, all the cows are from there. And they eat them. The cow is a benefactor of mankind. Understand? We should never touch them.

Yes, I donated a lot (spiritual merit). And if it’s allowed, I would donate more. But even then, I don’t need to. Because all the power I brought down from the higher world will be assimilated, distributed, assimilated slowly. And the world will better (improve). Otherwise, it would have been worse. But we don’t feel attached anyway. Whatever happens, it’s fine. But right now, the screening is that people who have bad karma (retribution) in something will be screened out. Through different means. Still, still, but less than before. Less intense than before. Less often.

The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity - Refrain from Stealing and Lying, Part 5 of 7, Dec. 23, 2018

That’s the most heinous lie of all, that you say you attained Buddhahood, but you have not. Meaning deceiving other beings, and then the other beings, they follow you, they also fall into the same pit. That is why it is so bad. This is the worst lie you can commit, because you lead other beings into the false views with you too, believing in your power, when you don’t have it. So, if you go to hell, they will have to go with you, because you deceived them. Also, deprived them from a chance to meet a real living Buddha, and that’s why it’s the worst sin you can commit, the worst lie ever. In Buddhism, they say it’s the greatest lie that you can commit, unredeemable.

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.’”

So, being a monk or nun also has a very good advantage; you train yourself in some discipline. It’s a very noble kind of lifestyle, very frugal, very humble,but high living, high thinking, high enlightenment. And now, even if these monks and nuns may not study with me or something, when I see monks and nuns outside, when I pass by in the airport or outside, I always make offering and always make obeisance to them, because I respect their ideal. Not their body, but their ideal, their goal, the noble aspiration, I respect that.

Cherish God’s Grace on Earth to Ascend Quickly, Part 2 of 5 Feb. 27, 2005

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.

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.

I still love you anyway. No matter what you do, I still help you the best I can. It doesn’t matter. When you die, you’ll know. You know who is your really loved friend, who really loves you. You all have three new Quan-Yin messengers. They are Fifth Level.

At this time, even people who don’t practice Quan Yin Method, they all go to the Third Level or Fourth Level even, accordingly. I told you already, no? Even the sinners, the ones who don’t even practice, and are very bad, also. Not too bad, but bad, and then, even then, they can go to the Third Level already, because they have been cleansed. Through disaster or war or tragedy, they have been cleansed. So, I can take them up. They have been cleansed, but if nobody takes them up, then they’ll just stay there.

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.

Everything is around me. I think it’s a very simple life and very beautiful. I feel more relaxed, more peaceful in this kind of environment, in this kind of arrangement. I don’t know how about you. I just hope that they let me stay long. Because up to now, it’s so difficult for me to live a simple life. Because if you have a big house, you have to take care. Even if you don’t take care, you have to have personnel to take care for you. And then you have to take care of the personnel which is the more difficult part than cleaning.
