From The Holy Bible: The Book of Proverbs - Excerpts from Proverbs 2-4 & 8-9

Listen, my son, accept what I say, and the years of your life will be many. I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life. Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her. Listen to my instruction and be wise; do not disregard it. For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord.

From the Holy Bible: The Book of Job – Chapters 7-12, and Excerpt from Chapter 2, Part 1 of 2

From the Holy Bible: The Book of Job – Chapters 7-12, and Excerpt from Chapter 2, Part 1 of 2

The Book of Job is the first poetic book in the Old Testament of the Christian Holy Bible. One of its main themes is God’s justice and why the righteous at times appear to be punished. Job was a wealthy and pious man who always avoided evil. One day, Satan asked God if he could test Job’s goodness, arguing that Job was good only because God blessed him abundantly. In the following excerpts, Job suffers greatly; his faith is tested. But in the end, he resolves to continue pursuing wisdom by fearing God and choosing righteousness.

Selection from Zoroastrianism’s Sacred Menog-i Khrad: Chapters 31- 40, Part 2 of 2

We continue to present to you the ancient wisdom in the Zoroastrian scriptures. “Wherefore is it when they do not allot the happiness of the worldly existence according to worthiness, and they make the soul a seizer upon the spiritual existences by worthiness of action? What is that which no one is able to deprive one of? What is that thing which it is not possible to buy at a price? And as to that which is asked by thee ’concerning the spiritual and worldly existences, the worldly existence is, in the end, death and, disappearance, and of the spiritual existence, in the end, that of a soul of the righteous is undecaying, immortal, and undisturbed, full of glory and full of enjoyment, forever and everlasting…”

Selection from the Book of Lieh Tzu: Chapter 1 - Heaven’s Gift, Part 2 of 2

In infancy his energies are concentrated and his inclinations at one- the ultimate of harmony. Other things do not harm him, nothing can add to the virtue in him. “Dying is the virtue in us going to its destination.” The traveler who forgets to go back is a man who mistakes his home. If one man mistakes his home, the whole world disapproves; but when everyone under the sky mistakes his home, no one is wise enough to disapprove. Only the sage knows whom to side with, whom to reject.

It’s Not Too Late to Get Enlightenment, Questions and Answers, Part 4 of 5 Nov 26, 1994, Thailand

Because the real transmission doesn’t need language - and then you will be awakened. Your spiritual wisdom opens and you might see the (inner Heavenly) Light and hear the Self-Nature. Like the Buddha said, “Listen inward, listen to your Self-Nature.” Or, like in the Bible, it says, “the Word of God.” These Lights from Heaven or from Buddha’s Land and the melodious teaching from Heaven or from Buddha’s Land, it is our own Self-Nature, and that will make us wiser and freer each day. And then, more and more we will rely on our Self-Nature and our Self Master inside, and the outside Master is only standing by and helping.

Selection from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Book “Nature”: Essays “Discipline” and “Spirit,” Part 2 of 2

Each creature is only a modification of the other; the likeness in them is more than the difference, and their radical law is one and the same. So intimate is this Unity, that, it is easily seen. For, it pervades Thought also. The eye, - the mind, and these are incomparably the richest informations of the power and order that lie at the heart of things. That spirit creates; one and not compound, it does not act upon us from without, that is, in space and time, but spiritually, or through ourselves: therefore, that spirit, that is, the Supreme Being.

It’s Not Too Late to Get Enlightenment, Part 2 of 5 Nov 26, 1994, Thailand

Spiritual practice concerns the mind, not the body. After the mind is controlled, the body is controlled. That’s why we do not emphasize to people that they have to practice the position first, but we emphasize that we will give you the extra controlling power, so that at the beginning of your practice you can immediately calm your mind and have an immediate result of enlightenment. We help you to unlock your controlling power from the higher source of the Buddha Nature, or what we call the Kingdom of God in different religions. The secret is we know the way. If we don’t know the secret, it doesn’t matter how hard we try, how sincere we are, we will not have results, as we wanted.

Selection from Zoroastrianism’s Sacred Menog-i Khrad: Chapters 31- 40, Part 1 of 2

Zoroaster was a prophet who lived in ancient Iran around 1800 BC. The teachings that emerged from His visions of God have become known as Zoroastrianism. Zoroastrian theology’s main tenets include the existence of one God and the personal happiness or reward that is the natural outcome of using one’s free will to formulate good thoughts, good words and good deeds. Respecting all life, Zoroaster was Himself a pure vegetarian and forbade all animal sacrifice. His universal philosophy is believed to have influenced Greek thought and major revealed religions of the world.

Selection from Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: Book III & IV, Part 2 of 2

“The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali”is one of the foundations of Hinduism’s classical Yoga philosophy, expressed in aphorisms, which reveals Patanjali’s exceptional knowledge of existing spiritual traditions and the best practical exercises and approaches to spiritual practice, wishing to attain inner peace, self-mastery, and spiritual freedom. “From that comes glorified mind, power of the organs independently of the body, and conquest of nature. The Siddhis (powers) are attained by birth, herbs, power of words, mortification or concentration. The change into another species is by the filling in of nature. Good deeds, etc, are not the direct causes in the transformation of nature.”

The Benefit of Spiritual Practice, Part 5 of 5 #159K, April 07, 1991

What is God? God is the Truth, the Omnipotence of the universe, the infinitely miraculous Wisdom, the boundless and immeasurable Love. The human realm is the easiest one for a human being to become a Buddha. During initiation, at the first second, you will understand why only human beings can practice to become Buddha. “Immediate Enlightenment.” And you will understand what you never understood before. Why then does our world keep having more and more people? They were from other worlds, from hell, from plants, from stones, from animals; they became human beings. Or from other planets, who had merits, so they could come here to be human beings.

In view of the significance of nature, we arrive at a new fact, the nature is a discipline. This use of the world includes the preceding uses, as parts of itself. Space, time, society, labor, climate, food, locomotion, the animals, the mechanical forces, give us sincerest lessons, day by day, whose meaning is unlimited. They educate both the Understanding and the Reason. Every property of matter is a school for the understanding, - its solidity or resistance, its inertia, its extension, its figure, its divisibility.

The Buddha has 84,000 methods to teach the disciples. I think I'll make use of every one of them. Anything that can help sentient beings to realize their true nature and leave aside the attachment at the end, it is a good method, it's a good way. It is the same way of learning, just a more charming, more attractive way of learning. Just a way of putting color into this miserable situation and trying to make the best out of our lives while we are waiting for our final liberation from the physical prison.

Selection from the Zohar – Kabbalistic Philosophy on the Sound, the Soul, and the Mystery of the Logos, Part 1 of 2

Kabbalah is the ancient mystical school of thought of Judaism. Kabbalah aims to explain the relationship between God - the unchanging and eternal Ein Sof ( The Infinite ), and God’s creation – the mortal and finite universe. In order that the Sanctuary of God might exist upon Earth, it needed manifestation by means of a Word or Logos. In the ages to come, [the science of words and sounds] will be recovered, and Heaven and earth, men and angels joined in unity and living in harmony, nations, kindreds and tribes of man now will again be one people and have all one language, and the knowledge of the Lord shall cover the earth as the waters cover the seas.

That’s the trouble with our world. Everyone is so humble and so shy to express our feelings and does not try hard to achieve what we want to do. Our shyness and fear sometimes inhibit us and let us get stuck in our daily routine despite our eagerness to find some new solution or some new meaning to our life. And that’s also the reason why I think many of us cannot attain enlightenment, even though the Buddha has promised that every one of us will become Buddha. He is the one who became the Buddha, but we will become Buddha. He said all of us have Buddha Nature.

BOOK III-VIBHOOTI PADA The Book of Powers Dharana (concentration) is holding the mind on to some particular object. An unbroken flow of knowledge to that object is Dhyana (meditation). When that, giving up all forms, reflects only the meaning, it is Samadhi. The three processes of Dharana, Dhyana, and Samadhi, when taken together on the same object, place or point is called Samyama. By the conquest of that comes light of knowledge.

Selection from Meister Eckhart’s Sermons “The Attractive Power of God” and “The Self-Communication of God,” Part 2 of 2

The soul has by nature two capacities. The one is intelligence, which may comprehend the Holy Trinity with all its works. The second capacity is Will. Its essential characteristic is to plunge into the Unknown which is God. The Unknown God imparts His impress to the Will. The soul is greater by its love-giving power than by its life-giving power. Thank God, while you are in time, that He brought you out of non-existence to existence, and united you with the Divine Nature. But if the Divine Nature be beyond your comprehension, believe simply in Christ; follow His holy example and remain steadfast.

Writings of Bahá’u’lláh: The Seven Valleys, Part 4 of 8

O My brother! A pure heart is as a mirror; cleanse it with the burnish of love and severance from all save God, that the true sun may shine therein and the eternal morning dawn. Then will thou clearly see the meaning of “Earth and Heaven cannot contain Me; what can alone contain Me is the heart of him that believeth in Me.” And thou will take up thy life in thy hand and with infinite longing cast before thy newly found Beloved. Whensoever the light of the revelation of the King of Oneness settleth upon the throne of the heart and soul, His radiance becometh visible in every limb and member.

Actually, you are already liberated, just you don’t know. So, you need clearing, with the initiation and the meditation process, to clear your vision. Not only you are liberated, your deceased relatives, many generations, will also derive from your merit and be liberated as well. That’s guaranteed. But to become a Buddha, it tales maybe longer. Because you have forgotten that you are a Buddha for a long time now, it takes a long time to remember again. That’s why we need to meditate every day. Because the teacher is responsible for your liberation and will take you out of the transmigration after you leave this world.
