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.

Supreme Master Ching Hai's Diary: The Living Masters Can Liberate All redeemable Souls, Part 1 of 4 May 5, 2019

Supreme Master Ching Hai's Diary: The Living Masters Can Liberate All redeemable Souls, Part 1 of 4 May 5, 2019

I'm going to read you some of my diary today. All this information came from when I meditated. For example, why Shakyamuni Buddha had to refer to Amitabha Buddha in order to save one of His followers in jail. And she was in jail and she was praying to Shakyamuni Buddha to save her, to help her, and then He appeared ― not physically; a Light body. Master has many bodies, can manifest a body anywhere when necessary, but it's not necessarily that you can see. A Master in the physical body can even use another physical body, but must have a physical body. When a Master is in the world, He doesn't just liberate the disciples, He liberates the whole world during His lifetime, with some exceptions. I will tell you which ones cannot be liberated.

Supreme Master Ching Hai's Diary: The Living Masters Can Liberate All redeemable Souls, Part 3 of 4 May 5, 2019

The Buddhas and Christ, any Saint, rescue all the people, all the beings in this world, as long as They are in this world. And Their energy will linger in the world for 300, 500 years after, after Their Nirvana. It depends on how powerful the Saint was or is. All beings are or will be uplifted recently because your Master is stronger now. Except some exceptions, that I will read to you. All beings on this planet, as long as I live, as long as your Master lives, She will uplift them all to the New Land, but gradually; depends. But at least they're liberated.

Formosa Is a Blessed Land with Many Heaven Gates, Part 1 of 2 Jan. 12, 2018

Thirty-Three Heaven Gates concentrates on one little island. None of the countries have that much. No. Big ones don't have that much. You guys are very lucky, to be Taiwanese and to be sitting here. Here is a big number as well. Big number concentrated on this one. Kaohsiung, here we have eleven. (Wow.) That's one third. Only this small Center have eleven. There's another island, like two in Penghu. And the Green Island, they call it Green Island, "Lu Dao," has one. So, three outside, thirty on the main island, and we have eleven over here. Don't you think you're very lucky beings? Therefore, we have about 98% spiritual value. So you come here, you have more spiritual support, right? Because Heaven Gates give you very positive energy to help you when you meditate.

So, make sure that when you go out or inside your house, you keep your purity and love. When you go out, you go out with love, and purity, and recite the Five (Holy) Names or the Gift all the time. Then all beings will benefit from your love, all around you at least; whomever you meet will treat you with love in return. You will feel also love from them. I give them tip not because of money, but to spread love. In physical means, so that Hong Kong has more peace, more love. It’s not the money that I give. It’s the love and the peace through that gift. It’s not the food that I bring to them, it is the love that I give also.

Supreme Master Ching Hai's Diary: The Living Masters Can Liberate All redeemable Souls, Part 2 of 4 May 5, 2019

Why did the devas, the heavenly beings, praise Shakyamuni Buddha as having rescued numerous beings, rescued the world? How? Why? When the Buddha is in the world, because the physical body is connected with all beings in the physical realms, you are connected together in this physical dimension, one way or another. And then you take food from this world and you breathe the same air with everyone else, and you drink water from the world, and many other things. Every little thing connects the Buddha with this world. So, He can use that to connect with people and help them to liberate. That’s why. Because the Buddha didn’t just liberate His own disciples, official disciples. He liberated all beings on the same planet that He lived; as long as He lived.

Her tears even wet the whole pillow. After she woke up, she said that Master was working so hard. She woke up crying and said, Master was on Her way to mainland China. She said the road was all covered with stones and thorns. The road was covered by deep snow. Master was small in figure, and the snow was up to Master’s knees. Master trudged alone, wearing very thin clothes, carrying a small backpack. But Master was carrying a very big invisible bag. She said that bag was the world’s karma and the karma of all sentient beings.

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.’”

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Five, Part 3 of 11 April 7, 2019

One time (you) come to see Master in the physical is more than enough. Nowadays, we have even TV. You can see me when I'm talking live. That's also almost like seeing the physical body. And also the Master advises the disciple, to at least come to see the physical Master one time, even though they are initiated by their appointed disciple. Even in Buddhist sutras, they also say, "To hear the Master's name and you see the Master's body, you'll get liberation – even a non-initiate, if they are pure at heart." But nowadays, we have television. It could be OK, it could be good. And real photos are also good. And maybe if the Master is powerful enough, that should be enough. All right then. If you cannot see the physical Master, then watch a video. Or watch something live like Fly-In News or something, when the Master was talking recently like two, three days ago. It also helps. It also helps to pray to the Ultimate Master, (give) thanks to the Ultimate Master.

So, if you're united together, helping each other, that's good enough. Other countries, they're OK or not OK; we cannot control them. Just be together, connect to each other, helping each other, honestly, sincerely, respectfully. Then everything will be fine. Nothing can just happen like overnight. Just together, Korea together. United we stand. I wish your country the best of luck. A lot of Koreans practice sincerely since I first came to Korea, and so your country keeps changing better and better. And we will have more Korean practitioners. The country's changing all the time.

State of the Five Worlds, Part 1 of 4 Feb. 28, 2005

00:36:01

State of the Five Worlds, Part 1 of 4 Feb. 28, 2005

Some of you were wondering… the whole history of the Five Worlds. The physical world is the leftover from the Astral creation. After creating the Astral, the heavy stuff settled down at the bottom and became the physical world, which is a fantastic world, I’m telling you. It’s the only one that has a physical body. And then, whatever’s left, whatever is heavier than the physical, then it even sinks lower to the bottom of the creation, and we call it hell. There is no such level like that. It’s infinite. But still, each level is like that. Fine. So whatever’s in the same level is hell, whatever is the same level is physical, whatever is the same level of fineness is Astral, etc. etc. And the finer, the higher. So hell persons are permitted on earth four hours at a time, without a body. And if he wants to manifest in the body, two hours.

Over the decades, how much have I told you about loving others, and loving and respecting other sentient beings? Have I told you? (Yes.) You also know that recently, a few weeks ago, I went into retreat for animals. It's not like I didn't set an example of how I treat my dogs. Everybody knows how I treat my dogs, right? Whatever we do, just imagine it's us. Anything that we don't want to happen to ourselves or have other people do to us, then we don't treat others like that, and it would be OK. It's a very simple concept.

The Quan Yin Bodhisattva continued to explain what kind of power and ability, Quan Yin Method, She had attained. “If there are those who are studying, who have severed the twelve links of condition-causation, and, having severed the conditions, reveal a supreme nature, and who are superior and wonderful and manifest perfection, I will appear before them in the body of one enlightened to conditions and speak Dharma for them, causing them to attain liberation.” “If there are those who are studying, who have attained the emptiness of the Four Truths, and cultivating the Way, have entered extinction, and have a superior nature and manifest perfection, I will appear before them in the body of a Sound-Hearer and speak Dharma and help them (to attain) liberation.” “If there are living beings who wish to have their minds be clear and awakened, who do not engage in mundane desires and wish to purify their bodies, I will appear before them in the body of a Brahma King and speak Dharma for them, causing them to attain liberation.”

Actually, humans should be the most merciful because we are the highest. As you can see, no other beings are more competent than us, right? Our minds are intelligent, and we can invent many high-tech tools to make our lives more and more comfortable. Animals cannot do that. They can only rely on nature. They rely on Heaven to give them food. I really wish our planet well, and the world will become more open, tolerant, and peaceful. For that, I am continuing to put in effort. Not just for humans only, but for the helpless and beautiful animals who share our world, but not share our privilege.

Buddhist Stories: The Lay Disciple Atulah, Part 1 of 4 Sep. 21, 2015

Always be considerate, otherwise you’ll go nowhere. You’ll never go up anywhere. If you improve yourself in real life, then it’s good for you, and good for the people around you. It’s not good just to be enlightened inside. Who cares if you become Buddha or not, if you don’t help anyone, if you don’t extend your love or expand your consciousness or your wisdom to help someone else in every small thing? Small things, that’s important. Big things, Heaven takes care. I was very happy that people really went out of their way to help others in need. Despite that they’re different religions, different background, different languages.

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.

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.’”

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 1 of 6 July 14, 2019

00:36:12

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 1 of 6 July 14, 2019

What are four types? It could be also people; it could be also invisible beings; it could be also animals, pets. So now, I classify it all in four types of beings. Because we are all beings. The first type is very lucky for us if we have; they're called "Friends." "Friends" doesn't mean the social circle that you are in only; it could be your family members. So, friend is good for you. You will notice that they are very helpful to you, very coordinated with you. When you're with them, it's smooth sailing. And in our group, we have sixty-plus percent are good, truly, sincerely want to go Home and to practice goodness and to hear the Truth and try to implement the Truth in their lives. And the other thirty-plus percent are not so. And just like other Masters, when They came to our planet, They generously gave initiation and just giving everyone a chance to know this method and then to be able to practice. But not everyone took it seriously. The same with Shakyamuni Buddha. Even His cousin always tried to harm Him.

"Because I have obtained the perfect penetration of the sense-organ and have discovered the wonder of the ear entrance, after which my body and mind subtly and miraculously included all of the Dharma Realm, I am able to make it so that living beings who uphold my name obtain as much merit and virtue as would be obtained by a person who upheld the names of all those Dharma Princes who are as many as the grains of sand in 62 Ganges Rivers." "World Honored One," Quan Yin Bodhisattva continued, "there is no difference between the merit of my one name and the merit of those many other names, because from my cultivation I obtained true and perfect penetration." Therefore, She can go everywhere. She can manifest Herself into all different lands and different countries, different realms, and speak to different beings to awaken them and liberate them, because of Her power, because of that. She concentrates so much, that there is no more physical world for Her. All is just pure, pure Light and power, spiritual power.

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.
