Leading All to Be Vegan Will Bring Immense Merits part 1 (1/2)

There is a temple called Sunshine Monastery. “They worship Padmasambhava. So after they learned Master’s teachings, they all became vegetarian. The abbot told all of them to be vegetarian and stop wearing fur clothes. The animal leather and fur. And then they don’t smoke anymore, don’t drink anymore, and don’t hunt anymore.” If any leader is a vegetarian, they should be open about it and encourage everyone to be vegetarian, too. This way they will earn immense merits, and they can also protect this planet so that their own relatives, friends, and children can continue to live on this planet in a clean atmosphere. We don’t leave the Earth populated and full of toxic air for our children. The more good deeds we do, the more meritorious deeds we do, the longer the merits will last. If we do bad things, the merits will be lessened and shortened.

I encourage people to farm. If a country’s agriculture is stable, the people will be stable as well. “In Hebei Province, there is also a farmer who is 30 to 40 years old. He learned to farm with love. He doesn’t use any fertilizers. He can communicate with the birds, like sparrows, as well as insects. He says, ‘Please, don’t the crops on my land. I reserve this area for you to eat.’ All the insects and birds listen to him.” If we practice spiritually and have love, we can communicate with all beings. Our world needs more people like that. They don’t need to learn from me. They have love and are one with all beings. They are very compassionate. Then our world will be much better. The Dalai Lama is already a vegetarian, so everyone should be vegetarian as well. The whole Tibet should be vegetarian. All the monks should follow the Dalai Lama to be vegetarian. And all the Buddhists should follow the monks to be vegetarian. Then they can say they are sincere disciples.

But the more we practice well, the purer our heart is, the better the government will be and the more they will believe, “Okay, you are on the right path because you have become a better citizen than before.” “You understand more now, and you don’t bother your neighbor or the government. You know what the right things are, what the good things are.” I think that you are my representatives. Through you, the government or your neighbors will know who I am. It doesn’t matter whether I come back or not. Over there, you do good deeds and avoid bad things, and you are good citizens. Then, of course, the government will know, “Okay, learning from Master Ching Hai, studying with Auntie Hài is very good.” We always said that the government has to be good for the people to be good. It's not so. It's not so. If our karma (retribution) is bad, even if we have a good government, they can't do anything for us.

Being an enlightened king or official like that, you should let everyone know. If people knew about it, they would have more respect and would listen to the government more. Even non-vegan people, when hearing of those who are vegan, they do show some respect, let alone big leaders being vegan. People will definitely listen. Then they would also follow in doing it. A leader has to have this responsibility. Knowing what is good, they have to set good examples. That’s called leadership. Same for government leaders. If you know something is good, of course, you should be open about it. First, you would gain people’s respect. Second, people will follow your example. Third, doing so is good for the country and good for the world. Being a vegan is very… It’s not about religion anymore, not even about politics. Now it’s about saving the world, saving the planet so that our children later on could enjoy it like we do now or better. We shouldn’t let it get worse, and then after we die, how haphazardly our children would live, we don’t even care. That would be irresponsible.

Sometimes the guru comes to you for emotional reason, sometimes comes for enlightenment reason. So it depends on what you need. Some need for emotional purpose, some for intellectual purpose. Some just to feel like have somewhere to hang on to, some group, belong to somewhere, feel like belonging. Some just need enlightenment, just want to be one with God, just want to know God. It’s a different group, you see? But then we have to go to the lands of no land. The vision of no vision anymore. The limitless type of formless God, at least to the Fifth Level. Mostly Vipassana (meditation) will not bring you to the Fifth Level. It has to use this, one by one, to go up to the Fifth. The last Name is Fifth Level God. We have to recite it so that all the guardians will open the door for us to go up, one by one. All Third Level gods or goddesses, the chief, must be reborn. Within the Three Worlds, there’s always creation and destruction going on all the time. The Fourth Level is in between. The Fifth Level, then you’re safe forever.

Now Is the Trend for Peace

Why I invite them. The Westerners, they don’t know much about spiritual practice. So they need to be encouraged a little bit. That' number one. Second, they don’t know how to cook vegan. It’s more difficult (for them) to buy vegan products. So I invite them. So don’t be jealous. Actually, I have also invited those Chinese grannies before. So I told them, it’s because elderly people worked very hard their entire life. Very few people think of them. Also, they don’t have much time left. That’s why I invite them. It’s not discrimination. It’s all because of love. It’s not that I prefer some people. I am always very fair. Why do I invite the Aulacese (Vietnamese)? You know it clearly. Their country had wars and turbulences for a long time. They suffered a lot. Their hearts need a little comfort. I should thank you. You practice well; the country is more prosperous. To be accepted into the World Trade Organization in an honor. Âu Lạc is prosperous now. I’m happy for you. “Âu ca lạc nghiệp”. (“happy and prosperous.”) That is the reason for changing the name. It brings happiness and prosperity. Remember, okay? Âu Lạc.

Now Is the Trend for Peace (Part 2 of 2)

Time is different now. We should always be good, peaceful together. We’re more civilized now and it’s the 21st century already. Fighting is I think of a period of Stone Age or Ice Age. We are in a new age now, Golden Age. Any country fighting, anybody killing, anybody in war, it feels to me like a very backward kind of action. In the old time, people lived in caves and went hunting for food or killing each other for food. But now we should not do similar things like that anymore. I think our world population’s consciousness has risen very highly now. And so it will contribute to peace and harmony on this planet among the population. So any country or race of humans that goes against this stream of change will feel very strange in their hearts, will feel disturbed, will feel unbalanced, will feel not very right. Because in their soul, they know they go against the current. Then they will feel isolated and feel agitated, and they feel unwell.

Liberation from a System of Rigid Interplanetary Control (P1/2)

Originally all of you, any of you, all came from very high levels of existence. All of the planets that you have come from are much, much, much more sophisticated than this one, much more comfortable, Life is more high standard any very, very well-organized. But unfortunately, any planet is just a planet. There will be a ruler somewhere. And there will be a ruler and there will be a government, and there will be rules and governed society. Before, we were even more controlled by some of the other planet systems. They have higher technology. They have higher power of hypnotism, so they make us forget everything and we cannot get out of this planet at all except by any Master who comes down and takes you by the inner road, not outside.

Liberation from a System of Rigid Interplanetary Control (P2/2)

Many people came from higher planets. Mostly, most of us come from higher planets. Higher technology doesn’t mean higher spiritual. That’s different. Therefore, a person who can invent high technology or super computer, doesn’t mean he’s spiritually enlightened. By the way of the Buddha, by the way of Jesus, direct implementation, direct communication, direct awakening from inside. Outside, we cannot do much. Inside, we can, because we are souls. And souls, there is a passage to connect with each other. When it’s opened, you’re free. After initiation, you’re free, free, free!

Upgrade Yourself into a Very Noble, Selfless Being, P 1/2

Upgrade Yourself into a Very Noble, Selfless Being, P 1/2

You have to train to be first good and able, so that maybe one day we can help someone else. Don’t always sit there like a baby waiting for mama. Even if you have been spoiled, you have to prepare to upgrade yourself into a very, very noble being. Self-sacrifice being. But I don’t ask you to do anything drastic. Self-sacrificing talking about that is a laughable thing. This is too weak for the word. I mean you have to also try to adjust to the situation. Try to help others instead.

Whatever We Assimilate Inside Is Translated Outsidee: Part 1 (1/2) July 30-31, 2013

From the Heaven, if we see this world, it’s chaotic, dirty, filthy, energy is so bad, so suffocating, and so confining. Once the body already captured the soul, it’s difficult for them to remember God or see Master inside or outside. Yeah! It’s a sad thing. Whatever you assimilate inside, even though invisibly and you might not notice it, but it’s translated outside. Don’t worry. You must have progressed in order to see the world in different angles and a more peaceful way and more loving way. It’s translated out.

It’s some encouraging news. Even from non-initiates, everybody seems like going toward the vegan direction now. Nature is helping you a lot. Or even with animals, easier to concentrate than with the crowded city. Most questions are just mental gymnastics, exercise. If we meditate a lot, we don’t need a lot of questions. Just pray to God and Heaven to help you progress and (provide) everything good for you. And let Heaven take care. Slowly we will have more and more vegan, vegetarian food everywhere, not just from us, but from everybody. And it will become a trend, and people will forget meat. Slowly, slowly, everything will be good.

Qualities and Powers of the Supra-Universal Realms, September 9, 2017

Qualities and Powers of the Supra-Universal Realms, September 9, 2017

Do you know the term the “Original Universe” by now? Then I’ll tell you a little about my progress. I was originally from such realms. Of course after I came to this world, I forgot about it. Then slowly, through lots of hardship, I came to such a realization. I used to think that this lifetime was the first time when I returned to the Original Universe. Later I realized that this wasn’t the first time; I've returned there at least two or three times. I’ve ascended to an extremely high level now, surpassing the Original Universe. But all realms originated from the Original Universe. The Original Universe has lots and lots of attributes and powers, right? But after the realms are separated from the Original Universe, they don’t possess as many attributes. Each new realm possesses only a couple of powers. However, each power is very, very strong. Actually, these realms aren’t really new. These are the ones I haven’t entered, so I call them “new realms.” Such realms, each has about 300K to 500K beings, bright and beautiful beings. They’re indescribable.

“Today, we are very fortunate, and I am very grateful to Master for granting us the opportunity to come here to see you. Many government officials follow your teachings, Master.” We only do the inner revolution. We only revolutionize our destiny. Just have a look, then you go back home and practice, all right? (yes.) The power is always here. I’m always there. “I wonder...We should always maintain a positive attitude. But the negative energy from many people around us has a lot of impact on us.” We have to change it gradually. But at least you can maintain that positive spirit, without being harmed. Also, by reciting the Holy Names to protect you, you can avoid being affected by them negatively. (Yes.) In such an upside-down world, you’re still able to keep your hearts pure and strive to protect your spiritual practice and be vegan like that. Especially those who are still young, it's very good. Keep up the efforts. It’s a little hard, but just try. Things are obviously getting better and better.

“It is very good that so many people are eating vegan now. The country is getting better every day. Saving sentient beings is not that easy, not easy at all. If it were easy, Buddha would have saved them all already, Jesus Christ would have saved all already. Don't have to wait for us, right? It's not easy, but if we can do it, it will be fantastic.” “Anytime we eat or drink something, anything, we incur some bad karma (retribution). Because people have to work very hard to produce those foods for us. Then they have to transport them from one place to another, and that also pollutes the environment. And it also harms the small animals, small beings. And sometimes, the growers, if they are not pure, then we will be affected also. But if we meditate a lot, we can cover it. We can pay off these things. If we meditate less, then we are in debt. We regress.”

Living Life and Governing the Nation with the Heart of a Parent (Part 1 of 2) July 16, 2017

All mothers are the best examples of the leadership. They don’t need to lead. They just let everyone be free and at ease. If leaders are as tolerant and generous as a mother or an elder brother, the citizens will respect them. Leaders don’t need to take people’s land or intimidate them. They don’t need to use military force to suppress them. Just relax and be loving, and people will listen. They don’t need to seize people’s property by force, but the whole country belongs to them. The most important thing is to win over people’s hearts. If people respect you wholeheartedly, then you win.

That if I were the king, I would do what parents do–love their children unconditionally. I would treat my people as my own beloved children. That’s what I meant. Then, if you love the neighboring countries in the same way, all of them will pledge allegiance to you, won’t they? Then there’s no need to rob them or use force on them. The stronger you are, the more loving you are to others. If you use your power, such as military power, to suppress the neighboring countries, that would not be right. That would not be right. Nobody would follow you.

From the Holy Buddhist Tipitaka: Sutta Pitaka – The Section of Verses: King Pasenadi of Kosala

Buddha or Buddha Gautama, also known as Shakyamuni Buddha, was a great spiritual master from ancient India. The rich treasury of Buddha’s spiritual teachings on universal truths are studied and revered to this day for their deep wisdom and compassion. Today we would like to share with you the sage doctrine of the Buddha as he spoke with one of his disciples, King Pasenadi of Kosala. “A person who is wise, out of regard for his own good, should always show due respect for a serpent, a fire, with high status, & a monk, his virtue consummate. So do what is admirable, as an accumulation for the future life. Deeds of merit are the support for beings when they arise in the other world. Restraint with the body is good, good is restraint with speech. Restraint with the heart is good, good is restraint everywhere. Restrained everywhere, conscientious, one is said to be protected. Afterwards it’s bitter for them: evil for them the result. Heedfulness is the one quality that keeps both kinds of benefit secure - benefit s in this life & benefits in lives to come.”

From the Holy Buddhist Tipitaka: Cula-dukkhakkhandha Sutta – The Lesser Mass of Stress

Buddha or Buddha Gautama, also known as Shakyamuni Buddha, was a great spiritual master from ancient India. Born as Prince Siddhārtha Gautama in 5th century BC. The prince one day left the palace life in search of spiritual knowledge. After years of contemplative seeking, the Buddha attained great enlightenment under the Bodhi tree. Today we would like to share with you the sage doctrine of the Buddha in the holy Tipitaka, excerpted from the Cula-dukkhakkhandha Sutta – The Lesser Mass of Stress. “I have heard that on one occasion the Buddha was staying among the Sakyans at Kapilavatthu in the Banyan Park. Then Mahanama the Sakyan went to the Blessed One. Mahanama said to the Buddha, ‘What mental quality is unabandoned within me so that there are times when the mental quality of greed invades my mind and remains, when the mental quality of aversion, the mental quality of delusion invades my mind and remains?’ ‘Mahanama, that very mental quality is what is unabandoned within you so that there are times when the mental quality of greed, the mental quality of aversion, the mental quality of delusion invades your mind and remains. For if that mental quality were abandoned in you, you would not live the household life and would not partake of sensuality.’”
