In this mundane world, it’s often difficult to avoid the negative effect of our surroundings. How can we protect ourselves? Supreme Master Ching Hai said, “Just try to remember God all the time.” Even in unfavorable situations, we need to be patient, recite the Holy Names and maintain our meditation practice. Then things will get better. Fellow initiates also shared their remarkable experiences of emerging from negative atmospheres unharmed after reciting the Holy Names.
