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

I’m sure other countries’people also have faith, and are also sincere, but I just feel more passionately from the Iranian people, that’s all. I don’t mean other people don’t have faith. But I just sense something from the Iranian people, so passionate, so strong. I am very privileged to know some spiritual people who are so sincere like that. I’m sure the Prophet, peace be upon Him, would be very,

You're also from Iran? Wow! Originally, I wanted to stay in my cave continuously, for one month and three days, I have announced that. And then you still come, and I don't have the heart to not see you. For you, to go through all these troubles to come here, I am also very touched. That's why I came here, especially because of you. "Initiates in Iran have asked us to deliver their respects to You,

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 wa

So the king asked Tu Đạt (Sudatta) the prime minister, "Tu Đạt (Sudatta), the disciple of your Master already agreed, promised to come to compete. How come he's not here yet?" So Tu Đạt (Sudatta) said, "Your Majesty, let me go check it out. I'll go home and have a look." Then Sariputra, wearing good clothes and in a dignified manner then walked out very, very distinguishedly and majestically, as i

Therefore the king said to them, “If your Buddha doesn’t win against these six magical masters, then the building of the ashram will stop.” To buy the garden, it’s already so difficult, and now, he cannot even build it. Golden all over, gold plated all the garden already, now, cannot build. And then the prime minister Tu Ðạt (Sudatta) was very sad. Next morning Sariputra saw that the prime ministe

Both of them went through the whole country, and hadn't seen anything, anywhere suitable except the park garden of Prince Kỳ-đà (Jeta). So Sariputra said to the prime minister Tu Đạt (Sudatta), "Oh, this one is good, because there are a lot of trees, a lot of shade, and it's not very near a noisy, dusty city. But it's also not too far. Because if it's too far, then it's very inconvenient for the m

So, he was so hurried. In the middle of the night he wanted to go out to see the Buddha. “Go, follower, go! Do not retreat. Do not feel worried. Even if you have the whole treasures of all this planet put together for you, it's still not comparable to walking one step toward where the Buddha stays and visiting Him. Even then the merits are even more than that, that I cannot compare and count for y

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 be

Now it's Buddha story. In Xá Vệ (Sravasti) country at that time, there was a big official, probably a prime minister. His name is Tu Ðạt (Sudatta). He’s a very rich person, but he is very compassionate. He often gives away his properties, his wealth, to share with other people. It’s not like he’s rich and the prime minister and he’s very arrogant. No. He’s a good, good, good person as well. He oft

In the Buddha's time, there was a person named Vimalakirti. He was a layperson, a lay disciple of the Buddha. But his wisdom was so high, He was a great bodhisattva. Many people were delivered because of him, liberated because of him. Sometimes the bodhisattvas are not born to be monks. But to be a layperson, so that... It's doing a different job. Like Quan Yin Bodhisattva, She/He manifested in di

It is the way to the true Bodhi." "Thereupon, Ananda and a

It is the true mother of all Buddhas. You may hear the secret Dharma-doors, of Buddhas as numerous as motes of dust, But without first renouncing desire and outflows, You may amass learning, but you wil

He explained from the beginning of our worldly existence already, how it came to materialize. It came only from emptiness, from nothing, and the thought also came from nothing. And the body, the form also came from emptiness. Therefore, he said like that first before he analyzed which method is OK, which is not. So, he said now. “Form and thought combined become the ‘dust.’ Their essence is not di

But when basic brightness shone so that objects appeared, With objects’ existence, the Nature’s brilliance ceased. Confusion and falseness bring about emptiness.

Love is not a bar to spiritual progress. It’s just attachment is a different thing. I can’t really explain it. Some couples are very loving together, and they’re OK. And other couples look like also loving together, but it’s attachment. You understand? You two are love! Because you are highly developed persons, so you have real love, understand? It’s different. But attachment really will slow you

First, you imitate by outward repetition, later, it will become your nature. And the Buddha will not feel that he’s a Buddha. Sometimes he does, but sometimes not.
