(Speaking of the process of death, when we die… […] Is it the third eye or the crown chakra that we meet You at? You’re going to meet us, right? I mean... Please, before we get lost,…) When you die, you’ll know. (…when we die.) Just concentrate on the wisdom eye, and everything will be taken care of. You hear everybody does the same thing. (OK.) And they had experiences like that. They’ve been pulled out of the body by the (inner Heavenly) Sound even, just by doing so simple exercise. […] That’s why you already “died” during meditation. […]

Alright. This lady and then that lady and then this and that. Give the microphone to her. And then you give it to that lady after. Yes. She waited a long time. I’m very sorry. I want all of you to have all the questions and all the elaborate answers. Therefore, you wait for your turn because it could be you next that I talk long and you ask long. OK? For you, I try so that everyone will be satisfied, group-wise. Like today, yours, and the next is another group, another country. So please be patient with us. Yes. (Beloved Master, it is not a question, but I want to say thanks on behalf of the group of Chile Meditation Center for allowing us to be here sharing this wonderful Christmas.) You translate. Can you translate for us? No? (Yes.) OK. Then give it to... Pass. Oh, eleven (o’clock).

(Hallo.) Yes, yes. (She – the lady that just spoke said she wanted to thank You from the group in Chile, from the initiates in Chile.) No problem. You mean about the charity? The help? The help in Chile? Or what? About spiritual help? (Yes.) (Yes.) (I dreamed, I mean, a dream with You was what decided my trip here, to the retreat.) (She had a dream with You that decided her to come to this retreat.) (I had asked God to spend my Christmas in a Trappist monastery.) (I’m sorry. I can’t hear her well, so...) No, I can’t either. (It wasn’t crying, Master, it was letting my soul flow. Thank You very much. It was letting my soul flow to clarify many situations of the future. And I thought, when the trip here was decided, to Washington, that I was having a glimpse of Heaven, and it truly is like that.)

(She had prayed to spend Christmas with You, and in her prayer, the thought of coming here felt like she was approaching Heaven. I hope that is what she said. I’m not totally, totally sure.) Yeah? (And I want to take that Heaven with me, so I can improve myself more and be able to help somehow.) (And she would like to... This Heaven that she saw she would like to bring back with her to be able to improve herself.) Yeah, good. (Help You too in that wonderful mission, raise the level of consciousness of humanity.) (And be able to help You in the marvelous work of elevating the level of consciousness.) (That is my wish, I am asking God.) (This is my wish – to serve God.) (Thank You very much for all with all my heart.) Thank you, too, for being such a good person.

Yeah. (I also only speak Spanish. Good morning, Master.) (Good morning, Master.) (I thank You for all the experiences that I have had, both internal and external. And my husband as well.) (I thank You for all my experiences, internal and external.) (We are both initiates, and my question is, does a married woman have the option to be a nun?) (My husband and I are initiated. My question is: Does a married woman have the option to be a nun?) What for? (Quan Yin messenger.) How about your husband? (What about your husband, does he agree with this?) (My husband is in Chile, and he is initiated as well. We got initiation together.) (My husband is in Chile. He is also an initiate.) I know, but you leave him? (Ah, he’s with the children.) (What Master is asking is, when you become a nun, what happens with your husband?) (No, I mean later, when the children have already left home and, well, maybe we both will become monks.) (She says perhaps more in the future when her children have left the house, perhaps the two of them would become monks.) Alright. Then perhaps we will talk about that. (Yes, but...)

The white woman. No, her. (Also, I wanted to tell that there is an initiate who came to the retreat, and she is sick, she is in bed now.) (There is an initiate that came to this retreat, and she’s ill right now in bed.) Oh! Yeah? (Can we bring her some [blessed vegan] sweets?) I come to see her later. Sit there and meditate. Sit and meditate. Come here. ([Vegan] candy?) I come to see her later. (She is going to see her later.) (Ah, that’s good. Thank You, Master.) You’re welcome.

See the (inner Heavenly) Light now? See bright in front of you? You see bright colors? No? Dark? Black? Nothing? (Black.) Black? Concentrate here, not at the physical eyes, not the physical eyes. Not here. Here. You look here. Here will be the (inner Heavenly) Light. If you look at the eyes’ level, it’ll be black. Tell her, if she looks at the eyes’ level, it will be black. She should look with the wisdom eye up here. Thank you. She has translation. Do not pay attention to the eyes. At home, you do like this. OK? And play some of my musical tapes in the background while you meditate. It will calm her restless thinking process and [help her be] more concentrated on the wisdom eye. You meditate now. Stay there. Meditate. Don’t open your eyes.

OK. Next question. (I was just going to refer to that position you showed us. How long can we meditate on the [inner Heavenly] Light while we’re doing Quan Yin?) How long? (Yes. Because I also see the [inner Heavenly] Light, bright... Sorry. I also see the [inner Heavenly] Light brighter while I’m doing the Quan Yin [Sound meditation] sometimes. But I don’t meditate on it because I’ve been told not to. So how long can we stay with the [inner Heavenly] Light while doing the Quan Yin?) You should just let it be. Don’t concentrate on that. You concentrate on the (inner Heavenly) Sound. But if it [Light]’s there, it’s there. It’s an extra blessing, extra strengthening. (But can we meditate on the Light for a little while [while doing Sound meditation] and then go back to the Light [meditation] to make it stronger?) It will be too dissipating for you. OK. If you prefer... if you feel, oh, it’s so good, and the (inner Heavenly) Light’s so much, OK, then you can do the Light for a while and then... But then, don’t just switch back and forth, back and forth, back and forth like that. OK? (Thank You, Master.) You’re welcome. (Yes.) Yeah, yeah.

Pass on, pass on. (That way. That way.) Behind. (Behind you.) (I’ve got one. I’ve already got one. Do you mean me?) Oh. Never mind. Talk. (May I? OK. Thank You very much for all of Your Love and Your initiation. It was the best dream that I never dreamed could ever be true. I thought I would have to wait until after I died just to ask questions.) Oh! No! (This is the best Christmas present in the world.) You must be lacking vitamin B12. (And thank You for the retreat and the [vegan] food and for everything. It’s wonderful.) You are very welcome.

(I have a few questions. Speaking of the process of death, when we die, according to the Tibetan Book of the Dead, we’re supposed to stay on our right-hand side and watch what hole we go out of or something.) Get a hole, what? (Is it the third eye or the crown chakra that we meet You at? You’re going to meet us, right? I mean... Please, before we get lost,…) When you die, you’ll know. (…when we die.) Just concentrate on the wisdom eye, and everything will be taken care of. You hear everybody does the same thing. (OK.) And they had experiences like that. They’ve been pulled out of the body by the (inner Heavenly) Sound even, just by doing so simple exercise. (OK. I don’t mean in meditation. I mean in...) When you go out. I know. (The “real” thing, so-called, when we do die, it’s the same thing...) You just meditate, and then you go out the right way. (Oh! My soul knows what to do when the time comes?) Yeah. (Oh. Good.)

You already “died.” (OK. That’s all I wanted to know. I don’t want to screw that up.) That’s why you already “died” during meditation. (No. I’m…) Sometimes you’re not yet... (I haven’t been able to get off my chair, actually.) You didn’t die yet? (Not yet. I’m dying to but...) You’re dying to “die?” OK, you will. You will. Maybe sometimes you do, but you don’t know. Because this process is not like an electric shock – that you “Oop! I’m out,” things like that. It’s the ease of the... transition’s very easy, as if nothing happened. (So, time goes by fast, type of thing.) Yes! (And I almost fall off my chair? That’s it?) Not fall off your chair, but... (Well, almost.) Just your soul. (Yes.) Oh, yes. Yes, that’s why most of the meditators, they sit on the floor, (Oh, I wish I had done that.) so they don’t have too far to fall.

(Well, I’m grateful that I can walk again. I broke my hip so...) You’re alright. (But I have found a way.) Yes, you’re alright. (It’s so nice to be able to walk.) Yes, yes. (But anyway...) Your hip has a problem? (I broke my hip.) Oh! God. (But …) Is it better now? (Well, as long as I don’t lie straight and I don’t stand straight for too long.) OK. Don’t we all have problems, huh? (But I can walk. It’s so wonderful. It really is.) OK. I hope it will get better and better with the meditation. (I hope so. Actually, a lot of things are getting much better in the outer world.) Oh, yeah? (It’s fantastic.) OK. Yeah. But it’s hard for you to make an effort in such a situation. (That’s OK. That’s OK. I don’t mind that at all.) Well, I respect your courage. You hear that? Some people have such difficulties, and they could go on. (Yes.) Yeah, alright.

What else? (OK. I wrote them down because this is a chance of a lifetime. I don’t understand in Your teachings, because of maybe the language or whatever, with “detaching.” Just to give you an example what is typical of how I feel. For instance, there was a chickadee out in the backyard. It was trapped in the bird feeder. I had a fit. It’s a little bird, and it’s trapped. And I almost become the chickadee. And I panicked. I come from Canada, so there’s snow up to your knees, and you have to run like crazy. And I was panicking and freaking out, almost like I was the one trapped in the bird cage. I know. (This is not very detached as these things go. What am I going to do? You know. I don’t understand. They say…)

Who trapped the bird? (Oh. I got him out right away, as soon as I could.) Then it’s OK. It’s OK. Yeah, that’s the right way. (But the way I felt was like I was trapped.) I know, I know. (You know?) I know. (But then we’re supposed to be detached.) No. No. (This is not very detached.) No. No. No. Detached, that means you should detach the bird right away from the cage. (OK.) That’s the detachment. (So, is the meaning more not to get addicted to people, places, things, and just to-take-it-or-leave-it type of thing? And because sometimes I feel that detachment means not caring, and not loving, and not feeling.) No. Nonsense. (I don’t get it.) Then I should be detached from you long ago. (I know.) And not sit here. (OK.) I shouldn’t sit here if I’m so detached. (Yes.) OK? (So, it’s don’t get addicted.) No. Do what you have to do.

(OK. Number 3. Oh, yes. This is maybe silly, but it’s typical. I think a lot of us have pets here. And resulting from the Quan Yin Method, I found how to make vegan food that is healthy for pussy cat- and dog[-people].) Oh, yeah? (Everybody is welcome. I made that... Yes.) Wow! Give the recipe! Recipe. (It’s a miracle.) On our book! Everybody will love that. Oh. Please do. (Yes. How do I get it out?) Oh! Please do that. (Who do I go to? What do I do?) Write it to our magazine. (Oh! Write to the magazine.) Or e-mail. Yeah. We will print in the magazine, and everybody can read it. (Oh! OK. OK.) OK. And then later we will include it in the vegan book. (It was a really special gift.) Huh? (There’s a box you can leave articles.) There’s a box you can leave… (You can leave the recipe in that box – it’s in the dining area.) Yeah. (So you don’t have to wait…) ([Food] recipes for vegan pussy cat- and dog[-people]?) Yeah. Yeah. Why not? (OK.) We’re all loving, included, and detached.

(And seeing as, well, we had three pussy cat[-persons] that were lost, and they were starving and cold. It’s cold up in Canada. And I wondered, just by chance, I got in a meditation the feeling that one of these pussy cat[-persons] was a long time ago my daughter. We can go up and down the animal[-people] kingdom, the human kingdom, and all over the universe.) Can. (Is it possible that she... they could come with us and pass by the human stage because I’m an initiate?) Yeah. But too late. Too late. She already became a cat(-person). (Oh!) That’s why. (No can do?) No, afterward, after she dies, she’ll be liberated. (Oh, when….) After the cat(-person) dies. (Oh! And “Sprite” and “Ginger” too?) Huh? (“Sprite” and “Ginger” too? They’re all vegan pussy cat[-people].) If it was your daughter, that you think, (Oh!) and after the cat(-person) dies, the soul will be liberated. (And they don’t kill either and... Oh! This is great.) Yeah. OK. You don’t need to advertise for the cat(-people). (Yeah. OK. Alright. Thank You very much.) So excited.
