Collection of Cao Đài Holy Messages: Book 1 - Lesson 80 & Book 2 - Lessons 34, 35, 40

Cao Ðai recognizes that the ultimate goal of all true religions in the same; to teach humankind to live peacefully and compassionately with all sentient beings, and to realize our divine origin. Followers of Cao Ðai believe that Venerable Ngô Minh Chiêu was chosen by God to establish the Cao Ðai religion. Life has to evolve in cycles so that the process of purification would lead to the perfection of humanity and the transformation of the Earth into Heaven. Peace will be bestowed to all humanity. I only hope that you are able to love one another, following My holy example and try to serve humanity for its liberation.

Collection of Cao Đài Holy Messages: Book 1 - Lessons 61, 64, 65, 67

Since time immemorial, human beings on Earth are merely travelers. Fame, position, and wealth in life are nothing but a dream. The world is blessed with the light of the Most Compassionate One, Which guides people out of darkness and ignorance. Aspire for spiritual attainment instead of worldly achievements. Rely on one‘s virtues to climb up to celestial realms so as to know the heavenly plans. Detachment from all worldly things is difficult. Few people aspire for heavenly realms, yet many are finding their way into the abyss. The Great Way has come to earth to guide people; without it even Holy Water would not be able to wash away all sufferance.

From Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Book “Secrets to Effortless Spiritual Practice,” Part 2 of 2

00:12:56

From Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Book “Secrets to Effortless Spiritual Practice,” Part 2 of 2

Love your family, truly love them, and they will love you, too. Then, due to this love, we will feel very lively and happy. It will be easy for us to accept people from outside, and to love others. Try it when you return home. This is the path to being happy. We love others because we want to be comfortable and happy. The more we offer our love to others, the more others will love us. When all the people love each other, how comfortable that will be!

From Supreme Master Ching Hai’s Book “Secrets to Effortless Spiritual Practice,” Part 1 of 2

One must be balanced in Yin (Negative) and Yang (Positive) to become a Saint. We can’t reach Heaven in one step. It’s same for the spiritual practitioners. When the time comes, we’ll get results naturally. If we have faith and happiness, and if we feel the protection of God’s power, then we’ve already had the most precious experiences. We are belong to the “Religion of Laughter”! We can measure our level by our laughter, If you want to become a Buddha, you should remember when you come here, you’re going to be a “Laughing Buddha”. We become very expansive, like the air, like the ocean. We’re not limited by any biases or bound by any traditions or customs.

From Judaism’s Holy Tanakh: Book of Tehillim (Psalms), Excerpts from Chapters 32-37, Part 2 of 2

Join us in listening to the great wisdom of the Holy Tanakh, giving us moments of remembrance of our spiritual Self. Happy is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is pardoned. Happy is the man unto whom HaShem counteth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. Rejoice in HaShem, Oye righteous, praise is comely for the upright. I will bless HaShem at all times. Thy lovingkindness, O HaShem, is in the Heavens; Thy faithfulness reacheth unto the skies. Trust in HaShem, and do good.

My foot standeth in an even place; in the congregations will I bless HaShem. HaShem is my light and my salvation; HaShem is the stronghold of my life. The HaShem is my strength and my shield, in Him hath my heart trusted, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth, and with my song will I praise Him. The voice of HaShem is powerful; is full of majesty. HaShem will give strength unto His people; HaShem will bless his people with peace. Blessed be HaShem; for He hath shown me His wondrous loving kindness in an entrenched city.

From the Holy Text of Tibetan Buddhism: Sixty Songs of Milarepa – Songs 7-8, 25-29, 31-32, Part 2 of 2

This frail body is subject e’er to sickness. So that one suffers excruciating pain. The illnesses of Praana (mind), gall and phlegm Constantly invade this frail human body, Causing its blood and matter to be heated; The organs are thus gripped by pain. In a safe and easy bed, The sick man fells no comfort, But turns and tosses, groaning in lament. Through the Karma of (past) meanness, Though with best of food you feed him, He vomits all that he can take. When you lay him in the cool, He still feels hot and burning; When you wrap him in warm cloth, He fells cold as though soaked in sleet. Though friends and kinsmen gather round, None can relieve or share his pains? He who has not realized the truth of No-illness Much suffering must undergo, when sickness will strike, It is wise to practice Holy Dharma-The sure conqueror of illness!

Excerpts from Theravada Buddhism's Sacred Scripture: Suttas of the Digha Nikaya, Chapter 6 To Mahāli (The Aim of The Brethren), Part 2 of 2

Herein, Sirs, a Tathāgata arises in the world, a worthy one, perfectly enlightened, endowed with clear knowledge and conduct, accomplished, a knower of the world, unsurpassed trainer of men to be tamed, teacher of gods and men, enlightened and exalted. Having realized by his own direct knowledge this world with its gods, its Māras, and its Brahmās, this generation with its recluses and brahmins, its rulers and people, he makes it known to others. He teaches the Dhamma that is good in the beginning, good in the middle, and good in the end, possessing meaning and phrasing; he reveals the holy life that is fully complete and purified.

They are real, those Heavenly Sounds, pleasant, fitted to satisfy one’s desires, exciting longing in one’s heart, which he could not hear. They are not things of nought. But what then is the proximate and what the ultimate cause, why he could not hear them? Because of the nature of his self-concentration [Samādhi], since he has practiced one-side concentration, with the one object only in view, he only sees the sights. Is it for the sake of attaining to the practice of such self-concentration that the brethren lead the religious life under the Blessed One? But is there a path, is there a method, for the realization of these conditions?

From Theosophy's Sacred Teachings: Gems of the East - A Birthday Book of Precepts and Axioms, Part 2 of 2

Neither by the eyes, nor by spirit, nor by the sensuous organs, nor by austerity, nor by sacrifices, can we see Brahma. Only the pure, by the light of wisdom and meditation, can see the pure Deity. By perfection in study and meditation the Supreme Spirit becomes manifest; study is one eye to behold it, and meditation is the other. Alas! We reap what seed we sow; the hands that smite us are our own. Thoughts alone cause the round of rebirths in this world; let a man strive to purify his thoughts, what a man thinks, that he is: this is the old secret.

From Theosophy's Sacred Teachings: Gems of the East - A Birthday Book of Precepts and Axioms, Part 1 of 2

He who casts off all desires, living free from attachments, and free from egoism, obtains bliss. Wise men are light-bringers. A just life, a religious life, this is the best gem. Having tested the sweetness of illusion and tranquility, one becomes free from fear, and free from sin, drinking in the sweetness of Dhamma (law). Cherish the road of peace. As the bee collects nectar, and departs without injuring the flower, or its color or scent, so let a Sage dwell in his village. That man alone is wise, who keeps the mastery of himself. Seek refuge in thy soul; have there thy Heaven! All our dignity consists in thought, therefore let us contrive to think well; for that is the principle of morals.

The Spiritual Path of Dr. Gabriel Cousens: From Early Life Inspirations to a Living Example, Part 2 of 2

Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, M.D. is a renowned spiritual author, teacher, yogi and a homeopath; So the essence of the Torah teachings in diet is about vegetarianism. And what there is, is a very strong connection between your health and your spirit. The welfare of the soul can only be achieved after attaining the welfare of the body. When the body aches, the soul too is weakened. God’s initial intention was that people should be vegetarian. So make it no mistake. This dietary law is really a unique statement in human spiritual history. Because eating is an act of holiness.

From the Sacred Confucian Analects, Chapter 19

From the Sacred Confucian Analects, Chapter 19

The superior man honors the talented and virtuous, but bears with all others. He praises the good, and pities the incompetent. There is learning extensively, and having a firm and sincere aim. The superior man learns, in order to reach to the utmost of his principles. The faults of the superior man are like the eclipses of the sun and moon. He has his faults, and all men see them; he changes again, and all men look up to him. He would plant the people, and forthwith they would be established; and forthwith they would follow him; he would make them happy, and forthwith multitudes would resort to his dominions; he would stimulate them, and forthwith they would be harmonious.

Selection from “Pathway to God” by Mahatma Gandhi, Part 2 of 2

It’s the duty of every human being to look carefully within and see himself as he is and spare no pains to improve himself in body, mind and soul. He is ever prey to temptations. He has to prove his manliness by resisting and fighting temptations. It's Man’s duty to develop all his Godward faculties to perfection and to suppress completely those of contrary tendencies. The goal ever recedes from us. The greater the progress the greater the recognition of our unworthiness. Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment. Full effort is full victory.

There is an indefinable Mysterious Power that pervades everything. It transcends the senses. The truth is that God is the Force. He is the essence of life. He is pure, undefiled consciousness. He is eternal. There are many powers lying hidden within us and we discover them by constant struggle. My God does not reside above. He has to be realized on earth. He is omnipotent and omnipresent. You need not think of the world beyond. If we can do our duty here, the beyond will take care of itself.
