É a realização cultural que satisfaz nossos sentidos estéticos, que preenche a lacuna do conhecimento e que nos guia na descoberta da beleza.——Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

A cultura implica tudo o que dá à mente a posse de seus próprios poderes; como a linguagem dá ao crítico, e o telescópio dá ao astrônomo.——Ralph Waldo Emerson

Conhecimento é a cristalização de pedras preciosas; Cultura é o brilho das pedras preciosas.——Ralph Waldo Emerson

Create a Permanent Heaven for Yourself and Later Generations , Part 4 of 4, March 3, 1992 , Singapore

When the Buddha was alive, He had many disciples, and even His disciples could work miracles. And Jesus promised His disciples that whatever He did, they could do the same. Therefore, we owe it to mankind to practice the way Christ did, the way Buddha did. And because I owe it to mankind to attain what I have attained today, I have to share it with you. I am happy to share it with you. Whoever likes to share it, I’m happy to devote my time, my attention, my energy, even my health, my finances to you, without any request in return, except that you work for it for the benefit of yourself and for the world that we live in.

Yezidism: A Rich Spiritual Tradition and Its People, Part 2 of 2

The spiritual life of the Yezidis has been preserved primarily by oral tradition. Therefore, it is a living religion of the spirit which only recently has been recorded into texts. But there are guardians of the sacred textual tradition of Yezidism, and they are called the Qewwals, literally meaning “professionals of the world.” The Qewwals are the interpreters of the sacred textual tradition of Yezidism, touring the communities living some way away from Lalish in Iraq, which is the most sacred place to the Yezidis. In the presence of an image of the Peacock symbolizing the venerated deity Tawusi Melek, the Qewwals preach sermons and sing hymns while playing the holy instruments of Yezidism: the def (tambourine) and shibab (flute).

Yezidism: A Rich Spiritual Tradition and Its People, Part 1 of 2

The Yezidi people are a unique ethno-religious group possessing an ancient and richly elaborate religious tradition. In fact, they believe that all the world’s religions originated from the same primeval faith. Some Yezidis maintain that "Yezidi" translates as "Followers of the true path." It is also very close to the Persian or Zoroastrian word Yazdan, meaning “God,” and Yazata, meaning “divine” or “angelic being.” The Yezidis believe their ancestors were the first people to be created in the Garden of Eden, a large area in present-day Lalish in Iraq.

One of the most unique features of Japanese architecture is Gassho - Zukuri, a roof resembling Buddhist praying hands pointed to the sky.

In a sense, these blessed singers and songwriters are the messengers of God helping deliver sacred messages in all musical genres. Supreme Master Ching Hai once expressed the following praise for these artists: The artists are able to emulate the heavenly melodies and the beauties from above and try to express them on Earth as much as they can through their physical instrument and vocal. Because in Heaven, everything is so glorious and beyond imagination — full of Divine light and celestial sounds of music.

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.
