The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity (Conclusion) & Establishing a Place for Awakening, Part 1 of 8, Dec. 24, 2018

The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity (Conclusion) & Establishing a Place for Awakening, Part 1 of 8, Dec. 24, 2018

The precepts are very important, not only for nuns and monks, but for you as well, if you want to be liberated while you are taking care of your duties in the world according to your karma. Not everyone can be nuns and monks, of course. It's a very difficult undertaking. It's very difficult. It needs a lot of discipline, a lot of training yourself, a lot of self-introspecting, a lot of sacrifice of personal taste, personal freedom. Everything! Many things, many things.

United Nations advocates lower meat consumption to halt climate change

United Nations climate change experts call for urgent reduction of meat consumption. In its “Climate Change and Land” report recently approved by world governments in Geneva, Switzerland, the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) urged for an immediate decrease in meat and dairy consumption as a key policy response to the global warming crisis. The panel of 107 leading scientists examined over 7,000 research studies and found that the vegan diet is highest in carbon mitigation potential, followed by the vegetarian diet. Notably, livestock rearing led to almost 75% of worldwide deforestation and massive production of heat-trapping methane gas. However, a plant-based diet can free up millions of square kilometers of land for carbon-absorbing forests and reduce up to eight gigatons of carbon emissions annually by 2050. Our gratefulness for your comprehensive study and vital recommendations, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. May all governments take swift and bold actions to promote the Earth-saving vegan lifestyle to their cherished citizens, in Heaven’s abiding care.

Supreme Master Ching Hai's Diary: The Living Masters Can Liberate All redeemable Souls, Part 1 of 4 May 5, 2019

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.

The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity (Conclusion) & Establishing a Place for Awakening, Part 2 of 8, Dec. 24, 2018

So, watch all the time, your mind, because your mind is tricking you all the time, due to habit, due to the company you keep, due to the job that you are doing, due to your surroundings, due to your family tradition or kind of lineage or just habit. So, watch it all the time. This is the most difficult to watch, because we always make excuses when we want to do something, we say, “Oh, I do that because of that, because of this.” Whether or not it’s true, you don’t care, and that is also lying; should not. Always watch our mind. The Buddha said that “If monks’ minds are as straight as the lute strings, true and real in everything they do, then they can enter Samadhi and never be involved in the deeds of demons. I certify that such people will accomplish the Bodhisattvas’ Unsurpassed Knowledge and Enlightenment.”

The Great Benefit of Having Retreats, Part 1 of 2 April 10, 2019

The Great Benefit of Having Retreats, Part 1 of 2 April 10, 2019

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.

It’s just the time, also this period of time, that the planet must join the other planets, higher planets in the galaxy. So, grace and blessing are helping a lot.

The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity (Conclusion) & Establishing a Place for Awakening, Part 8 of 8 Dec. 24, 2018

“Ananda, if any one of the monk’s precept transmitting masters or any one of the other monks practicing with him is not pure, then the Bodhimanda as described will not be successful.” Even if you don’t sleep for three months, even if you’re pure, who knows if the bhiksu giving you the precepts is pure or not pure? Therefore, even if you have all that from one of the monks, all the precepts, you can never be sure. This is the problem. You should always choose your birth whenever a living Master is born, so that when you grow up, your time, your age, you come of age, then you can go and grab that Master and quick. Not doing all this.

Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra: Benefiting the Living and the Dead, Part 1 of 5 Aug. 11, 2015

This is for the people who are ignorant, who have no refuge in anyone, who have nowhere to go, no one to believe in, no one to rely on. So, you are the ones who probably have to help these kinds of people so that they don't fall to hell. Because if nobody prays for them at the time of death, nobody tries to do good things and forward this merit to that soul, then he goes to hell, or goes to a bad reincarnation. That's why you see all the churches and all the religions, all the Buddhist monks and nuns always busy praying for the dead.

Keep Replenishing Our Protection Power and Be Unconditional, Part 2 of 2, July 5, 2018

You work here; you have a lot of merits. Understand? The best merit you can have for yourself, and for your ancestors, and your parents. So, you are the most filial sons or daughters of your family. Even though you don’t earn money or give them material comfort, you do the best. Like the Buddha, like His monks. Understand? Even one of His monks rescued his mother from hell. You remember that story? Just because he was a monk, he had enough spiritual power. Also with the help of other monks. Even the Buddha said He cannot. Remember that?

But the person who reached this state of extreme self-satisfaction, he thinks he is above everything. But this is just one state, which is called “viewing oneself as supreme, but lacking wisdom to save oneself” even. You can’t even save yourself, not to talk about going out and saving other souls. This is terrible. Then you’re falling. If he knows it, then it’s OK. But if he doesn’t know, then he will fall. The demons and all that will come. “Those who have deep faith in him will follow him to destroy the images or bury them. He will mislead living beings, so that they fall into the Relentless Hells.”

We were talking about sincere people, eh? But it doesn’t mean you come here and prostrate full length to me, that is sincerity - that’s just theater. You are sincere, I know it. All right? Don’t need theater, OK? Don’t make trouble. Don’t draw attention to yourself. Don’t be greedy like that. Don’t play theater to me. I don’t need all that. I need you to meditate and to do good things, and to be good for the sake of everybody and yourself. I don’t need you to make theater around here, like “I’m the most sincere person in the whole universe.” All that stuff! Appearance really does cheat people, does fool people, but doesn’t fool me.

The Secrets That Cats Keep, Part 1 of 2

The Secrets That Cats Keep, Part 1 of 2

As a matter of fact, two researchers did some experiments and found strong evidence that we cats are sensitive to human emotional cues. They found that the cats behaved differently when their caregivers was smiling compared to when they were frowning. When faced with their smiling companion, a cat was much more likely to show affectionate behavior such as purring, rubbing or sitting on their lap. The cats also seemed to want to spend more time with their smiling human friend than when he or she was frowning.

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Form and Feeling Skandhas, Part 6 of 9, Dec. 26, 2018

If you ever want to be a Buddha, it’s just because of your compassion. You wish that you could have some power, so you can help somehow. That is the only reason that you want to be a Buddha. Pray always for protection and help, so that your ego will not harm you in any way. So that your compassion will grow and grow and grow. So that wherever you go, your spiritual blessing and power will influence people for the better. We spiritual practitioners must have only one goal in mind: that’s to benefit others. A small way, a big way, whatever way we can. Better we don’t even know it, so our ego doesn’t make our nose become higher.

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.

The Surangama Sutra: The Origin of Demonic States, Part 1 of 7, Dec. 25, 2018

If we have some reverent beings, we have to treat them nicely. You must know. I always tell you, a long time already, so you do always the same. The monks and nuns sit somewhere separate, as separate as possible. We have to protect them, protect their purity, for you. It’s not like I love them more than I love you. It’s just they need to be a little distant. You go home, you just sit with anybody, hug each other, sleep with each other, but they are different. They need to be separated. Because we can influence them with some of our negative thinking, impure energy.

When the person’s mind becomes clear, unveiled, bright and penetrating, an internal Light will shine forth and turn everything in the ten directions into the color of Jamburiver gold. All the various species of beings will be transformed into Tathagatas. He will see Vairochana Buddha seated upon a platform of celestial Light, surrounded by a thousand Buddhas. Further, the person uses his mind to investigate this clear discernment until the pure light no longer disperse. He will suddenly be able to see various things appear in a dark room at night, just as if it were daytime. This is a temporary state and does not indicate sagehood. If he considers himself a sage, then he will be under demonic influence.

Whenever you quarrel or you do things negative to each other or have such negative feelings or energy, then you make a hole in your protective net of your center and your community. And then the negative can seep in and make more trouble. I don’t take any money from any of you. You never heard me come knocking at your door or saying, “Please, I need this, I need that.” All I do is just provide all the time, everywhere, wherever I can. I provide many centers from my own fund. You are here to light the torch for the world, to make a good example from inside out, from beginning to the end.

I’m telling you the truth. Whatever happens, will happen. No hurry when you cannot walk. Then the demon will come and grasp you because of your hurriedness to want to be somebody in the universe. Just be cool; one step at a time. So, this is the problem when somebody is thinking that, due to this demonic influence, the one, the demon who’s so easily satisfied. It’s just a little accomplishment and he feels great already. So he influences this person, who may be too eager to become something. So, the demon will come and make you feel that you’re a Buddha already. And then you cannot help it, but boast to everybody that you are the Buddha.
