Buddhist Stories: The Layperson Who Offered an Ashram to the Buddha, Part 3 of 8 Aug. 15, 2015

Lucky for him, he had a son who wanted to marry. Otherwise he had no chance to know the Buddha. So he said, “Vice (Deputy) Minister, who is the Buddha?” Hô Di, the buddy-in-law to be, said to him, “The Buddha was a prince. And then even when He was born, He walked seven steps. Because He observed that humans have four sufferings, like birth, old age, sickness, and death, so He left home. He had been an ascetic for six years. And then later, at the end He became a Buddha. His Light brightens many corners, even brightens the whole Three Worlds. That’s why we call Him Buddha.” “But Vice (Deputy) Minister, why is it called Sangha?” So the vice (deputy) minister told him, “After He became Buddha, the Brahma king came down and requested Him to impart teaching to all beings. And after the Buddha accepted that invitation, He went to the Deer park in Ba La Nại country. And then He stayed there and preached the four marvelous ways to deliver yourself and others from suffering. …All of them, 500 persons, all liberated. And then these people became meritorious enough, and they had enough power to be able to liberate other beings as well. That’s why we call them Sangha, meaning the assembly of saints.”

Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 69 - Native American Prophecies with Chief Phil Lane Jr. (INT)

Prophecy of the Golden Age Part 69 - Native American Prophecies with Chief Phil Lane Jr. (INT)

The famous indigenous prophecy of the Reunion of the Condor and the Eagle, but in another interpretation, the Eagle and Condor represent the two different paths that the human race has taken over history: The Eagle represents the path of the mind, of the industrial, of science and technology; whereas the Condor represents the path of the heart, intuition, and connection with nature. The time has come for the Condor and Eagle to join to create a new offspring: a higher human consciousness that balances heart and mind. Chief Phil Lane Jr. elaborates on the importance of this balance: "They're spiritual solutions." "To love and have compassion" is humanity's purpose now, and as Chief Lane tells us, this must be extended to our diet and treatment toward animals. "Our prophecies are very clear that as we spiritually unfold and transformation evolves in this next stage of our human growth and development, that we will leave behind the eating of meat."

Dr. Rudolf Steiner: Bridging the Physical and Spiritual

Rudolf Joseph Lorenz Steiner was born in 1861 at Kraljevec, present-day Croatia. Dr. Rudolf Steiner was a great polymath, a philosopher and scientist. An eloquent public speaker and gifted writer, he gave over 6,000 lectures in his lifetime, and he published more than 25 books. He developed and taught a path of research called anthroposophy, based on “the science of the spirit.” Rudolf Steiner was also a vegetarian. He placed great emphasis on the benefits of meditation. In 1913, Rudolf Steiner designed and built the Goetheanum, a “school of spiritual science,” in Dornach, Switzerland. This has become the world center for the anthroposophical movement. He believed that education should focus on the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each student. In 1919, the first free Waldorf School was founded in Stuttgart, Germany, based on Dr. Steiner’s philosophy. Now, a century later, there are more than 1,000 of these Waldorf and Steiner Schools in 64 countries.

Buddhist Stories: The Layperson Who Offered an Ashram to the Buddha, Part 2 of 8 Aug. 15, 2015

Now it's Buddha story. In Xá Vệ (Sravasti) country at that time, there was a big official, probably a prime minister. His name is Tu Ðạt (Sudatta). He’s a very rich person, but he is very compassionate. He often gives away his properties, his wealth, to share with other people. It’s not like he’s rich and the prime minister and he’s very arrogant. No. He’s a good, good, good person as well. He often gives things to people who are lonely, or have no one, or are in trouble, or poor. So they called him Cấp Cô Dộc (Anathapindika). Meaning, giving to the vulnerable, the lonesome, to whoever is lonesome, or like widows, and orphans, and elderly who have no one to care for (them). He had seven sons, and six of them were already married. The seventh also was very moral, morally fit and a distinguished person. He was beautiful looking, also. The last one was his favorite. And now one of the Brahman's good friends came one day. "I would like to ask you a favor. Please go and check really thoroughly to see which is a really good family's daughter. Almost equal in status, and good, good, good behavior, good moral standards, truly a virtuous girl. Also have to be clean and pure, and beautiful looking. And then, ask if they'd marry my son for me…."

From Rumi's Fihi Ma Fihi: Discourse 11 - More Selections

Mawlānā Jalāl-ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhi Rūmī, known simply as Mawlana in Persian and around the world as Rumi, was a poetic genius, a theologian, and an enlightened Master who graced our planet eight centuries ago. The deep and diverse influence of His legacy still remains and continues to awaken the hearts of many beyond all cultures and boundaries. Rumi was heir to the rich literary and cultural heritage of Persia, or ancient Iran, and composed His great mystical poems in the Persian language. "Whoever labors for the glory of God, though both their eyes are sealed, their labor is not lost. Even an atom’s weight of good is not lost. Though all within is dark and veiled, and they do not see how far they have progressed, still in the end they will know. ‘This world is the seed plot of the world to come.’ Whatever they sow here, they will reap in the next world."

Making Informed Medical Decisions with Dr. Pamela Popper, Part 2 of 2 (INT)

“And if you want to be a healthy person or recover from disease, you’re not going to escape the need to change your diet in very specific ways.” In the first place, we do not have to struggle with making challenging healthcare decisions. Dr. Popper says many doctor visits, diagnostic tests, drugs, and procedures could be avoided if people ate healthy, plant-powered diets. Dr. Popper also strongly feels that individuals can help advance the vegan movement by being living examples of the excellent health and wellness that comes from eating plant-based.

Buddhist Stories: The Layperson Who Offered an Ashram to the Buddha, Part 1 of 8 Aug. 15, 2015

In the Buddha's time, there was a person named Vimalakirti. He was a layperson, a lay disciple of the Buddha. But his wisdom was so high, He was a great bodhisattva. Many people were delivered because of him, liberated because of him. Sometimes the bodhisattvas are not born to be monks. But to be a layperson, so that... It's doing a different job. Like Quan Yin Bodhisattva, She/He manifested in different appearances, sometimes as a princess, things like that, for different affinity with beings on this planet. So you laypeople also don't feel despair. Just different choices. If you have an enlightened way, a method, then you will also reach the high level. Depends on sincerity. I'm reading you of a layperson who made an offering of an ashram to the Buddha. I love all of you. And you can always count on me in any time of need, all the time, all the time, 24/7. All your life, and the next life, and the next life, I will always be with you. It doesn't matter who and what level you are.

A Modern Practitioner of the Ethical Teachings of Jainism: An Interview with Mr. Gaurav Jain, Part 3 of 3

Next, Mr. Gaurav Jain discusses the vegan lifestyle and its interrelationship with meditation. "Meditation is relaxing. Relaxing and entering into your own souls. Definitely, you get deep into the meditation when you have compassion. My vegan lifestyle definitely helps me to meditate well. When I have none of these things made from the animal origin, definitely my health is good. I have no health problems for the last 10 years, even not any small problem. Forget about the big problems. So when you have no health problem, you can definitely go deep into the meditation. So, anyone who is watching this – try veganism, and then try meditation. Meditation is part of the spiritual life. As I earlier said, spirituality without compassion has no meaning. Spirituality and veganism, they are just two parts of a single coin."

Christmas Can Enhance Emotional Well-Being

Today we will focus on how celebrating Christmas can uplift spirits and enhance psychological health. Attending church services, singing carols, creating holiday cards, gift-giving, and putting up decorations and lights are common ways to commemorate this holiday. The atmosphere in filled with reminders of the value of good, moral, virtuous and generous conduct. Dr. Batcho explained in an interview with the American Psychological Association that the holidays can stimulate recollections of simpler times when we had fewer worries and responsibilities as well as less stress. Also, Christmas, or other religious observances, can spur us to think about the disadvantaged and how we can help them. Best of all, the positive effects of the Christmas atmosphere can serve as a springboard to delivering acts of kindness throughout the year!

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Six, Part 7 of 7 April 8, 2019

So, Manjusri continued speaking. “I bow to the Ones, and the Tripitaka, And to those inconceivable ones with no outflows, Trusting they will aid those in the future, So that no one will doubt this Dharma-door. …for those immersed in the final age, they should cultivate this organ of hearing, A perfect penetration that surpasses all others. It is the way to the true Bodhi." "Thereupon, Ananda and all in the great assembly experienced a clarity of body and mind. Having attained such profound instruction, they contemplated the Buddha’s Bodhi and Parinirvana. …Throughout the entire assembly, the gods, dragons, and all the eightfold division, …Found their fundamental mind and, far removed from dust and defilement, attained the purity of the Dharma Eye.” Up until bhiksus who do not wear silk, who do not wear leather boots, furs, or down, etc., and not consume milk, cream, or butter, can truly transcend this world. But must practice also the Quan Yin Method; that’s what He meant.

Use Our Wisdom Dec. 15, 2019

Sunday, December 15, 2019, was another auspicious and blessed day for our Association members at the New Land Ashram in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. Our Most Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai caringly spent time with them and expounded valuable advice for spiritual practitioners. “We have a lot of good-intentioned people, truly it’s like that. But good intention is not good enough! We must have wisdom; we must have concentration. For spiritual practice, you should never bring your ego into play. You should be always eager to learn more.” “Inside, know yourself; outside, help others. Not just humans, but animals, insects.”
