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.

Buddhist Stories: The Nun Wonderful, Part 3 of 5 Sep. 04, 2015

I don’t know what kind of terrible deeds I have done in the former life that in this lifetime, I had to encounter so many disasters, pain, sorrow and suffering thus. And I observed that probably hundreds, thousands, or millions of other same female sex like me, also married, and I think this is all like a yoke, on the female’s life. Like imprisonment. It’s only slavery, making your life more and more ignorant and suffering, because we don’t know a better life. We don’t recognize a more noble way of life, a better path to go. We do not know how to step up onto the true path to liberation, and the true path to know the reality, another, higher than this physical life.

Buddhist Stories: The Nun Wonderful, Part 2 of 5 Sep. 04, 2015

She wants us to be life after life transmigrated in a lowly level of consciousness and getting nowhere in spiritual elevation or enlightenment. I think we, all of us, should go to another bhiksuni, another nun, another high priestess. Her name is Vi Diệu, So the Bhiksuni Wonderful said to them, “So anything that has form and life, it is born out of sensual desire and sensual pleasure. Sexual desire is comparable to a big fire that is always burning within beings. And this fire is so violent, it could even burn away forests and trees and grasses and even stones, and even the whole immense universe.” “Anyone who has been captured tightly within this sexual desire, it is as if the enemies are already in your house. They are going to destroy your house, destroy your life. And this person, if indulging and following that desire will definitely be, not will be born but will be exiled into the three wicked ways, wicked paths.”

Buddhist Stories: The Nun Wonderful, Part 1 of 5 Sep. 04, 2015

Now, this is a story about a nun named Vi Diệu. Vi Diệu means very wonderful. One time the Buddha was in the country Xá Vệ (Sravasti). At this time, many of the nobles and rich families' daughters, came to the Buddha and became nuns together. One time, they talked to each other like this: "Although we have become nuns, and even though we have the title of Bhiksuni. But concerning the Buddha's teaching, we don't really understand a lot. So, we have not been able to drink the Buddha's ambrosia." They were thinking that their sensual desire and anger and arrogance from time immemorial has not been completely annihilated, nullified. "I think we have to go to the Thâu Lan Nan Đà (Sthulanda)," a great superior mother, nun.

The Great Benefit of Having Retreats, Part 2 of 2 April 10, 2019

The Great Benefit of Having Retreats, Part 2 of 2 April 10, 2019

You contributed during your retreat 6.1% together. Then it’s not bad already. Better than nothing. But I am grateful. 6.1%, that is multiplying to 731 million, for example. You know, this is a lot. It’s a lot of souls. Otherwise, they would have been still laying in the hell or somewhere else. Very good. So, retreat is good. They thank you also. They always appear and thank me after I do retreat or something intensive, or sometimes, when they are liberated somehow in connection with me. Finally, helping them to go up and be totally free, not just go to somewhere on the Fourth Level, Fifth Level, and stay there. But go up to Tim Qo Tu Land.

These are only for the dead people who suffer in hell or in some unfavorable realm. If difficult to take care, during retreat, can take care. So, all together, it’s about 731,114,123 souls. This also has some part of yours in it, so I could tell you, I guess. They’re automatically liberated during retreat. Not automatically, but, I mean, at that time, it’s easy to take them up. They all go to the New Land. I mean, New Spiritual Tim Qo Tu’s. “People who watched Supreme Master Television or Your videos, minimum three times is good enough; three minutes each time.” That’s enough already to get them up.

Ways to Gain Spiritual Merit, Part 4 of 4 Feb. 26, 2005

You just sit there, be available, don’t expect anything. Pray for grace before you meditate, and thank after. But do not thank after, just thank in between a little bit, and continue meditation, that would be the best. Now you are stronger already, do not sleep too much. If you have to, if you don’t feel well, you sleep. But if you meditate more like that, your body will be strong, your mind will be very, very, very tough, so, you know, even sickness cannot enter your body.

So do not let your emotions on this earth cheat you. Whatever you experience here is mostly suffering, so you cannot imagine! So, you just want to go to the best level. But you will be safe already on the Third Level. Not that I encourage you to stay there, but if you cannot go any further, then just stay there for a while. And if you want to improve, you still can come back here, or you learn slowly with other Master, or I will dispatch a representative to go there to teach you. And then you will go also from there up to Fifth Level.

Because, your IQ has gone up, together with your spiritual practice. The spiritual level opens up all the channels. Cleans all the clogs off inside your arteries or even physical veins, so it makes the blood even flow better and the information go better – everything is clearer. The higher you go, the clearer the channel, so you get more information, more correct instruction from the brain even. Otherwise, mostly the brain, even also smart, tells you what to do, but your hand’s clumsy. The clog over here, so only a little bit of info seeps through, and so you do only half good. The spiritual blockage also influences physical clearance.

Be Humble All the Time, Part 2 of 2 Mar. 17, 2019

Have more humility. You still have to pray all the time to Masters in the ten directions of the past, present and future to help us to break through quickly. And you still have to help whoever needs help. Helping others is the same as helping yourself. Have humility all the time. At any time, do not think we are great already. That’s how we can make progress. The ego is the biggest obstacle. Things are not so easy in this era. The more advanced the technology is, the more difficult for us to practice spiritually. So, in this age, we can only rely on God and Buddha to bless and help us. We cannot rely on ourselves too much. Of course, we try our best, but no matter how hard we try, there’s nothing to be arrogant about.

The dog knows nothing else but love. Because when you’re with animals, you just feel so lovely and you feel happy and you don’t want anything else. We could spend time with animals forever. They are so beautiful. They’re so pure. Thank you very much for coming to the retreat, benefitting yourselves, your countries and the world. Laugh more and your heart would be open. But please don’t laugh at the wrong time. Sometimes, when I was talking about something sad or not very funny, some people still laughed, Laugh at the right time. If you laughed at the wrong time, people would think that you have no sympathy, and wonder why you laughed when he said something woeful.

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

“And then the palaces in Heaven were also wavering, tossing and turning in Heaven.” Like moving around as if we have an earthquake here. Probably that is a Heavenly earthquake. We don’t know if Heaven also has earthquakes. When some Bodhisattva suffers so much, in order to search for the Truth for himself and all beings, then it touches all Heavens like that, so powerful. “And then many Heavenly beings looked down and see what was going on. And they were all very moved and they all flew down, and threw a lot of flowers to offer to this Bodhisattva, and were also crying because of this great compassionate heart, and so courageous, fearless.”

But the Buddha has never blamed the Sakra god or anyone who comes and ask for His suffering because He knows that will help Him to clean up whatever residue of karma and further push Him towards Buddhahood. These are helpers. The same with Devadatta; He has never blamed him, He has never hated him. His cousin who always tried to harm Him, life after life. But He has never blamed him. There are good and bad forces: good police, bad police; good guy, bad guy. And anything that tests our endurance is helping us to strengthen our spiritual endeavor, strengthen our faith in ourselves, make us more strong, more courageous.

Once you’re born, you forget. Even though if you were a god, when you’re born, you’re completely blind, deaf and dumb. You won’t remember anything at all in the past life. Therefore, you might do wrong and then the situations in the world will push you to commit some bad deeds. And then your status will be lower and lower, and then you might even go to a lower level, like bad animals. And then from then even go lower and maybe go to hell etc., etc., and never get liberation or be born in Heaven again. That’s why he was very worried. He was a god, he should know. He should know all these consequences, because once we’re born, we forget.

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.

I said our road sometimes has maybe a little pebble on the road, or some little tree, fallen down, but we just move it and then we continue going. Because we want to reach our Home. Same, same when we practice, a little obstruction, no problem. Continue. Everything is good. We have to keep the positive mind, and everything will be better. Always remember Buddha, God, blessing from Heavens, then everything will be OK. Heaven is touched by your sincerity even. Heaven and Earth know your purity and good heart. And I’m also very, very touched, and appreciative of your dedication to the noble goal, the best goal, the only goal that’s important in your life, practicing.

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.

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.

Rotten ghost and has so much power. I feel ashamed as a human. He’s just a rotten ghost and he has so much power to sway people’s minds and cheating them into believing in him that much. And we’re so powerless. We’re supposed to be God and Buddha. How come we have no power? Imagine that? That’s the price to come into this physical body; that’s the price to pay. You have come here for some reason and you also had to make a contract before you came; you have made a contract. Maybe also intended to do good, but then, when we come down here, they make us forget everything; forget and just go with the flow.
