Master Serves Disciples, Part 1 of 2 Sep. 20, 2015

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.

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 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 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 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.’”

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.

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.

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 dogs are extremely intelligent, if you treat them like one, you will be surprised. You will be surprised. The very small Maltese, when he first came, We took him to the school. They call it K-9 (Canine) Cadet. he had been a favorite student there. They told me that he was very tidy. He always went to the corner there to do his toilet, and he never made any trouble. He shared all the toys. He didn’t bark loud, and he was licking them all the time, anybody in the house. Everybody came, he welcomed and…kissing, kissing everybody. You don’t need to teach a dog. If you love him, he responds. He responds with love, and he will surprise you no end.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Buddhist Stories: The Lay Disciple Atulah, Part 2 of 4 Sep. 21, 2015

I read you one of these stories. Atulah was a lay disciple. He lived in Sravasti. And he had a retinue of five hundred other lay disciples. One day he took those lay disciples with him to a monastery to hear the Dharma. Now this elder Revata was a solitary recluse. Delighting in solitude even as a lion delights in solitude, and thus he had nothing to say to Atulah and his following. He felt agitated. So he arose from his seat, went to the elder Sariputra. And forthwith the elder Sariputra expounded the Abhidharma at great length. Provoked, he took his retinue with him again, and went to the elder Ananda. Thereupon the elder Ananda expounded the Dharma to them very briefly, making it very easy for them to understand. But they were provoked at the Reverend Ananda also. And then going to the Buddha.

Then the Buddha replied, "Atulah, from days of old until now it has been the invariable practice of man to blame him who said nothing, him who said much, and him who said little. There is no one who deserves unqualified blame and no one who deserves unqualified praise. Even kings are blamed by some and praised by others. Even the great Earth, even the Sun and the Moon. Even the Supremely Enlightened Buddha, sitting and speaking in the midst of the fourfold assembly, some blame and others praise." If some blame you or praise you, it makes no importance at all. They don’t have any intelligence to even praise you or to blame you. They have nothing to say. So it doesn’t matter what they said. Whoever is blamed by a sound judging person, the good person, intelligent person, then he is truly blamed.

And God will be present on Earth, but invisibly. Maybe visible to some few, OK? And that race also would be invisible. They don’t need a physical body. Maybe sometimes they take on a physical body to go around the world for some purpose. Blessing or something. But we will not be able to see that. "Can You tell me…I have some more questions. What is the reason behind cancer, apart from…" Maybe some loophole in your system. That it can sneak in. But mostly it’s from DNA. Some groups of people are more prone to cancers than other groups. But it could be even contaminated by others. Too much nearness to some patients, your patients. Somebody you took too much at heart. And that triggered a kind of so-called sympathetic response, so you share.

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.

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.
