Iranian People’s Sincerity and Passion in Spiritual Practice, Part 4 of 4 May 12, 2019

“I have something to ask You. I always shake a lot when I meditate. How do I overcome that?” We have physical energy, we have emotional energy, we have this kind of life force energy, all kinds of energies. And before that, do some physical exercises to release some of the pent-up kind of maybe negative thinking or negative influence from others or from yourself - karma. And then sit and meditate. And do the breathing exercise that I have told you. “One other quick thing, Master. Does it become more of just energy and not so much seeing, once you get past the Astral?” It depends on the person. Some people see visions; some people feel the vibration; some people feel different sensations or happiness or pleasure. But it's always, you have to concentrate on the third eye, whether or not you have visions or no visions. And always remember the Master, (Yes.) Five (Holy) Names, and the Gift, if you have.

Să păstrați cele Cinci Precepte, meditați, recitați cele Cinci Nume (Sfinte), să vă amintiți Darul și mergeți direct în sus, mai devreme sau mai târziu. Nimic nu vă poate opri acum. Nimic nu vă poate păta, nimic nu vă poate tenta deloc. Nimic nu se poate apropia de voi!

Înțelegeți legăturile emoționale și transcendeți karma, partea 2 din 5 Mar. 1, 2005

Și viață după viață, noi întâlnim oameni și uneori noi reacționăm față de ei și ei reacționează față de voi. Dacă este de bine, atunci ei vin înapoi ca prietenul sau iubitul vostru bun. Dacă este de rău, ei vin înapoi ca oamenii care, știți, îți rup inima.

Dușmanii mereu se întâmplă să se întâlnească unii cu alții (Da.), și apoi ”iubire la prima vedere”, și toate acestea. Și nu știi deloc ce va urma. Totul este o ”păcăleală”. Toate înfățișările în această lume este un fel de înșelăciune pentru voi. Și totuși, voi ați pierdut totul, și nici măcar nu știți!

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 1 of 6 July 14, 2019

So, I think the governments of these countries who advocate animal laws and protections are very, very good already. Maybe one day, they will ban all together any form of torture or killing of any kind, then it would be perfect. I would give that country hundreds of Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, for Love, for Wisdom, for Hero, for whatever, the best. Hallo. Hey, everybody OK? (Yes.) It’s very comfortable to be a monk. Right? So free. It’s difficult to be a half-monk like me. I’m OK. Is it good? (Yes.) I gave her some (vegan) cakes that the kitchen gave to me because I don’t eat a lot of cakes. I don’t really like sweets. Also, it makes me fat. I said I eat too much already, and she said she eats even more. I said no problem, she doesn’t have to be a model. I do many jobs. Model, modeling is one of my jobs. I can’t eat a lot. For her, no problem. If she gets fat, just buy new clothes. Yeah, for me, OK also. Maybe if I get fat, I can design new clothes, but I don’t have too much time to keep measuring. So, it’s better to stay a little slim; more convenient. Brother from Hong Kong, is your sister here? No? Take turns this time? It’s your turn? Last time, I forgot one story. This story is supposed to follow the story called “The Afflictions by Shulpani” in the temple. But I probably over flipped the page, so I’ll read it for you today. This story has a better title, a more positive title. All the guards have translation? One ear for translation, one ear for order. Otherwise, just standing there, understand nothing, feel very boring. So, you can do three jobs now. So, join my club. Listening, taking orders, and watching. Wow! You only have three jobs; don’t complain. I have many jobs; I cannot list them all: Dog caretaker, house cleaner, helper for the dogs, model, designer for jewelry, wearing jewelry… Oh, I don’t have time to wear jewelry but… Designer for clothes, modeling for clothes. What else? A lecturer, initiation Master, a meditator; yogi, yogi sounds better. What else do I have to do? Sometimes a psychological counselor. What else? Wow! And the list goes on. I don’t want to scare you, in case you want to be a Master, so OK, the list, we’ll just stop here, and you imagine more. Now let’s go. Today, I have a fan matching my clothes. Very good. Leaving Asathikgram. Remember that? That was the village where they call by this name Asathikgram, meaning the village of bones. Remember last time? There was a demon who lived there and eating people up, whoever went there, so they called it Asathikgram. And the Master Mahavira already subdued this demon, and he became a good boy, and not eating people anymore. In the old times, even humans in some places were eating humans. In the old times, it was very bad but people were still eating people. And now we, the civilized society look upon it as barbarous. We don’t do this anymore. Even in remote areas of the world they don’t have that anymore. Well, not that we know of. Because we are more civilized now, we look upon such a practice as barbarous. Soon, in the future, we will look upon eating animal flesh also as barbarous. And pray God that it will be very, very soon. Terrible. Our world is getting better and better. And many animal laws are being proposed or being implemented, and maybe being practiced, a little bit somewhere. But that’s already a very good step. I said they should practice it. Some governments, some nations already advocated and put it into laws, to protect animals. But just one more step, then it’s banned all together any killing of animals or torturing of animals; in animal factories, for example. So, I think the governments of these countries who advocate animal laws and protections are very, very good already. Maybe one day, they will ban all together any form of torture or killing of any kind, then it would be perfect. I would give that country hundreds of Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, for Love, for Wisdom, for Hero, for whatever, the best. And I hope other countries also follow suit, to make more laws to protect the weak and innocent, as well as to implement it, to practice it. Otherwise, it would be hypocritical. Sorry. Sorry if I offend anyone, any of the governments or people, but it’s the way it is. You say you protect the animals and all the while, just keep quietly condoning the practice of harassing, torturing, killing, maiming animals. So, what is that then? I really was very reluctant to say such things, but I don’t know, sometimes the truth just keeps coming out. I’m in trouble all the time because of that. Even Heaven just warned me two days ago. They told me to be safe because I told Them I don’t care. They said, “Yeah, You don’t care, but You have to be safe for the world because You still have work to do.” That makes sense. But still, I cannot help it sometimes to speak the truth because that’s what it’s all about. No? Democracy, freedom of speech. Truth practicing, stuff like that. Forget it then, for now. I guess the people who bring this regulation into law, they really want the nation to practice it. It’s just a government body is a complex system. So, maybe some pro, some against. I have been tolerating everything for many decades. And because of tolerance, I have almost died many times. I have been sick, gravely ill many times, and have been blackened my name many times, and also obstructed to give you a better teaching, a smoother, more inspired, and deeper teaching because of tolerance. So, I think from now on, I have been, since we have this Ashram, I have been practicing less tolerance for the sake of everyone else who are sincere, who truly take their time and have courage to come, to leave behind everything, either to work for the world or to come here to better themselves. And in our group, we have 60… I don’t know. I don’t have my diary here. I wrote it down. Sixty-plus percent are good, truly, sincerely want to go Home and to practice goodness and to hear the Truth and try to implement the Truth in their lives. Sixty-some percent. I am very, very lucky and very grateful indeed. And the other thirty-plus percent are not so. Either they just join for fun, or just have nothing else to do, or just shop around, or just coming to make trouble, or just to like to be with the crowd. Also, maybe just to profit from, like good energy, but not doing anything to contribute to it. On the contrary, damaging it somehow. So, for the sake of the majority, I was, since a few months and from now on also, I will screen out as much as I can to protect the majority of people who are really worthy of Heaven’s grace and blessing, and my time. I consider my time very, very precious. Every minute when I remember my age, I feel my time is running so fast and so precious that I can’t afford to waste it just to entertain some anybody, some busybody, or boring body, or bored body, or obstructive body. In order to protect you, and my time, and my practice, and my work, my inside work. For these people, I do not reject them outright. Just they should practice at home or in some smaller Centers where they don’t affect too much the outcome of your practice and my sincere dedication to offer you what I know. So, anyway, they have gotten initiation. They are free to do what they want to do with it, but they are not free to come to the big assembly and make trouble, and ruin our atmosphere and damage your practice result. You agree with that? (Yes.) OK. So, do not keep telling me that this sister is good and that brother is the best, and he’s working diligently, and he always goes to group meditation. That means nothing to me if the inside has not changed for the better or not sincere. Outside is difficult to judge whether or not a person is good or not. Truly like that. Even I was fooled many times because I was also looking outside. And only until maybe I talk to that person or something happened that I have to check it out, then I know it only outwardly looks good, seems good, but the inside is still nowhere. Number one, because not sincere. Join in maybe because of a beautiful girl or a handsome boy, or just have nothing better to do, or just like to be in the crowd. Some people like to be in the crowd and make themselves more famous for doing something, looking good, looks like good for some other purposes, but not sincerely here for real things. And there are also… just like other Masters, when They came to our planet, They generously gave initiation and offered it to the public at large without discriminating who is what and who did what, and just giving everyone a chance to know this method and then to be able to practice. But not everyone took it seriously. The same with Shakyamuni Buddha. Even His cousin always tried to harm Him, did nothing good, always jealous with the Buddha because the Buddha had many admirers, many followers, many disciples who worshipped Him and who practiced with Him with all hundred-percent faith or over hundred-percent faith and vigor. And he looked like nobody followed him, maybe only his servants. Maybe nobody loved him; maybe his mother did; if he had a girlfriend, perhaps. We never heard that he had any family or romantic relationship. Maybe that’s why he was cranky; nobody loved him. The best place to put him is just somewhere so he will not harm anybody, least of all harming the Buddha, the saintly Master who has nothing in His heart except to uplift the faithful, the worthy, and the good people, and help all the beings as well. Because life after life, we will have enemies. The Master also, no exception. So, you see, like Devadatta, he followed the Buddha life after life like a shadow. He never, ever left the Master alone; never. Even after He became a Buddha already, officially, the whole world knew, and he still continued making trouble. Similarly, I also have enemies. There are two kinds of people in our group. I am not talking about you. Of course, you also have enemies and friends and you know that. In the Feng Shui school, they teach you to recognize enemies. Like anyone next to you who always makes you angry, sometimes for a reason or for no reason, they call them evil persons, and they advise you to avoid them, if you can. But if they are your family members, then good luck. There are three kinds of people who will be around you. Four kinds. The first one, luckily if you have, friends. “Friends” doesn’t mean the social circle that you are in only; it could be your family members. Oh my God, should I read the story or keep going on with my calendar? (Calendar.) Calendar? Story won’t run away. My calendar might, because if somebody makes trouble, then I might stop my inspiration somewhere and then the story will get short or nothing. It happened many times. Well, not many times, several times. Either that or the continued story is bumpy, bumpy. Four types of people, four types of beings. It could be also people; it could be also invisible beings; it could be also animals, pets. So now, I classify it all in four types of beings. Because we are all beings: human beings, animal beings, ghost beings, whatever beings. Now, four types. What are four types? The first type is very lucky for us if we have; they’re called “Friends.” It could be your family members: your son, your husband, your wife, your sister, your brother, and your cousin. Devadatta is not classified as “friend,” even though he’s a family, so-called clan member of the Buddha. So, friend is good for you. You will notice that they are very helpful to you, very coordinated with you. When you’re with them, it’s smooth sailing. Of course, they are not perfect. Don’t look at only at their mistakes or their faults. You have to look at the big picture, because you might be very easily mistaken with their personality.

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 2 of 6 July 14, 2019

All the Bodhisattvas and the Buddhas warning us that the Bodhisattvas have always been there to help us all the time, even lifting us away from hell, if we were repentant and sincere, and given another chance to redeem our mistakes. Some still do it again because habits die hard, even habits from former lives, still coming back, haunting our subconsciousness. So, try to resist mightily, whatever we think is not good. You have to watch more closely what they do for you, how you feel when you’re with them. How they tell you the truth for your own good but not arguing over petty things. How every time you’re in trouble and they’re around, the trouble seems to be solved or lessened. And of course, “Enemy” is the opposite. But it’s very difficult to discern the enemies. But there are some tricks, I can tell you afterwards. We’ll talk about friends first. And friends, sometimes, also are very protective of you. If someone else harms you, or slanders you, or talks bad about you, or does bad things to you, they’re always on your side. Enemy, of course, is the opposite. Not only they don’t sympathize with your troubles, they even talk to you like you are the guilty one, make you feel even worse. Like it’s all your fault. Even if it’s your fault, it always takes two to tango. That’s what people say. Friends, they are always there when you’re in trouble. And their energy will always lend you some help, even though you don’t know it; they also don’t know about it. But you just feel comforted when you’re around them. And you two seem to get on well in many subjects. Not all subjects, not all things, of course; nothing is perfect in this world. Even in architecture, when they build a house, they deliberately make something wrong in some corner of your house; not dangerously wrong; it’s just something not perfect, so that the house will be safe and stay long. I guess to make it less perfect, so that the house will stay safe longer and make people happy inside. That’s what they believe. But of course, the house alone, the Feng Shui alone, is not 100% safety-proof or happy-proof for you. You must have also the worth to live in there, and to live a perfect and a good human life according to your merit and your goodness in your heart. Some people, even if they live in a bad house but they’re so pure, so good, everything even bad becomes good. Actually, in our group, we should also experience that. Many years ago, when I first came to Taiwan (Formosa), being blind, deaf, and dumb to the world, I also didn’t know much about Taiwan (Formosa). Used to also being kings and queens and all that. I used to do what I wanted and my order would be law. So, when they said, “Oh, it’s raining a lot, it’s wet for disciples; it’s sunny, too hot; rainy, too wet; winter too cold; autumn is too nothing. So, we should build a little roof for everyone.” OK, we built a roof. And later they said, “But the wind and the rain are still flying in.” And they said, “Master, we have to make some walls.” But we didn’t really make walls; maybe it was just like plastic sheets and cover, etc. But then, I don’t know, somebody went and reported it or something, and then somebody else came and demolished it, the so-called meditation hall. So, we had nowhere to go. We just planted more trees hoping that, like the Buddha, we’d sit under the Bodhi tree, and we might become Buddha. We planted a lot of trees, and because of many trees, it’s like a forest. You know in Hsihu, right? It’s like a mini forest; trees are everywhere. If you’re not careful, you’ll bump into trees all the time. When you’re in samadhi and walking around, you be careful. And we always have to trim the trees so that it doesn’t overgrow. Otherwise, we will have no more land because Hsihu is small already. Similarly, here we also have to trim. Trim some people who are not really useful. For the majority and for the practice of everyone else, so we trim them. Just like trees, sometimes you have to trim some, because the tree might grow too far into your house and obstruct your door or your windows or take up your space; you trim some. So, at that time, we planted many trees overnight even, me and the monks and nuns at that time, the residents, long-term residents. And we planted also at night, because sometimes we could not wait until the next day, because it might be too hot and the trees would wither and it was very difficult. So, we had to plant a lot because we were in a rush of time also. If we didn’t plant it well on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, then on Sunday people could not come, because of the heaps of dirt everywhere and trees were laying down everywhere or topside everywhere. It was also dangerous for the children. And the holes everywhere in the ground, it was not safe. So, we hurried, hurried. We planted sometimes all night through. And because of the many trees, we call it “Holy Forest Big Hall.” Holy Forest Big Hall. Word by word translated like that. Actually, the big hall, it means the place where you gather to meditate, to listen to Master’s lecture, so they call it “big hall.” Even in the temple, they call it the big hall. Means where the Buddha statues are placed, and people come to worship or meditate, if they do, or listen to the abbot speaking if he does. So, we call it the big hall also. Actually, there’s no hall. “Da dian” means “big hall.” The hall normally has a roof and the walls around it; meditation hall or any hall like that; just, we had no hall at all. They’re still nostalgic for the old times, when they still had the little meditation hall before. It was made of simple stuff like sheets of metal. At that time, I didn’t have a lot of money, because I did not do any designing or modeling yet. I didn’t think about that. And then we just used very inexpensive material just to cover from the sun and the rain. But later, it was demolished, so we planted trees instead. We were just a group of practitioners, didn’t know much about the building regulations and stuff like that. We thought, “Oh, it’s necessary to build, so we build.” And I thought the Taiwanese (Formosan) people knew what to do and the Taiwanese (Formosan) people thought Master knew everything. “Master knows what to do, so, OK, we build!” Later, we knew better. Have to apply first for permission. Nevertheless, we already planted trees. It’s very difficult to dig them out. They are growing, growing everywhere already. So, we call them “Holy Forest Meditation Hall.” And just now, they dug out one of the ancient predictions, and one of the seers, he mentioned about our Holy Forest and I said, “Wow, that’s pretty cool.” So, that means anything that happens has a good reason. And I had to wait 30-some years to see it. We all did. We all had to wait for 30-some years to see the reason why somebody came and demolished our so-called meditation hall before. And then we have a Holy Forest Meditation Hall, which fits perfectly in the big plan of the universe. We shouldn’t have built that hall in any case. But I remember now, I don’t know if they still have these tapes, that I was talking to the residents at that time, because they were so upset that somebody was going to demolish their house. They were not really attached. They thought it was a place, the holy place where people came and meditated, for the disciples, and why do people even come and do that? And they were thinking of coming out and lying on the street to stop the bulldozer from coming to demolish the hall. So, I was laughing. I talked to them laughingly, saying, “Oh, somebody really wants to use human skin to protect the metal skin.” Because the metal sheets… In Chinese, I said, “You are using human skin to protect the iron sheets.” I remember saying that, but more I don’t remember. I just comforted them and then made them laugh so much, that we all laughed, and then, we didn’t care anymore, whether or not it was going to be demolished or not. So, it was like that. These tapes probably were never published because it was just for the residents, and we just talked about this incident only; nothing, I mean, nothing much. Well, maybe there could be some lessons in it. But we didn’t think. I didn’t let them publish. I didn’t think it was something to publish. Maybe one day, they will dig it out. Because these Supreme Master TV people, Supreme Master Television staff they are so good, they dig out everything. They dig out many of the photos that I never thought I had. They dig out some of the talks that I never thought I even had spoken. And they dig out so many ancient predictions, that I never heard of; even many other lifetimes. They keep digging and digging. Wow, my God! And I’m also, for the first time, seeing this. I told you the only predictions I knew a little bit, not the whole thing, because it’s very famous in France. I was in France and I was studying French, so I knew some, because people told me, but I wasn’t anything wiser, because I wasn’t practicing anything. So, I didn’t know anything anyway. So, they read it and I heard it and then it went from here out the other ear. That’s it. That’s the only person I knew about predictions in my whole life. And now, they’re digging out so many. Whoa! From Europe to America, and then now South America and then to Âu Lạc (Vietnam) and Korea and whatnot, I don’t know. I’m also like you, very excited, waiting to see what else they can dig out from the treasure of the world. So, now, when I see these predictions, I think, “Wow, so it fits perfectly. Maybe that’s what it’s meant to be.” Luckily, I didn’t let the residents come out and lay on the street to do the protest. Because the bulldozer, maybe it doesn’t know anything about ahimsa. It could cause some problems. Humans might know, but the bulldozer is just a machine. It knows nothing about the Five Precepts. And you don’t provoke that big, strong, powerful, mindless guy. Besides, whatever happens, happens. That’s my philosophy. Whatever happens, happens. You just accept it and maybe something good comes out of it at the end. Maybe you have to wait forever, but who cares? Who cares? That’s the way it has to be, then it has to be. So, we learn a lot also from Lord Mahavira here, that He accepted everything, because maybe His soul knew that this is good for humanity, for all beings. Or His soul also remembered maybe in the past lives, when He was sojourning on this planet, maybe He also did something not appropriate and now it’s His turn to reap these consequences. Even Shakyamuni Buddha said that He was kicking the head of a dead fish, and then He had headaches for some time, even after He became Buddha already. We are born in this human body and we are not allowed to know many things. Therefore, a lot of times we do wrong without realizing it, especially without anyone teaching us in advance, without a wise teacher to tell us what’s right from wrong. And even then, if somebody taught us, sometimes we still can do wrong because the mind and the maya pushing it; and our karmic background from (past) lives coming back also leading us astray, making us do things wrong; or the situation forces us to do something that we don’t like to do, but we just have to. Therefore, all beings are really, really pitiful, very, very pitiful indeed. But in the Ksitigarbha Sutra, Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha Sutra, remember, all the Bodhisattvas and the Buddhas warning us that the Bodhisattvas have always been there to help us all the time, even lifting us away from hell, if we were repentant and sincere, and given another chance to redeem our mistakes. Some still do it again because habits die hard, even habits from former lives, still coming back, haunting our subconsciousness. So, try to resist mightily, whatever we think is not good. Because the Buddhas and the Bodhisattvas warned us that, if after we have been redeemed and given another chance, and if we do bad again, if it’s too grievously bad, then we’ll be in hell forever. No one can help us anymore. Remember that? (Yes.) Well, they said no one, meaning mostly, mostly. Maybe there are one or two mighty Saints who could help us, but that takes long, long, long eons, kalpas, until this Person or this Being comes down to this planet and helps us in that situation. I mean, help once and for all, for good. But then, we still have to suffer a long time already, like forever. In the old saying, they say one day in prison is like three years outside in freedom. In hell, imagine all the suffering and the punishment and the pain and sorrow, no end. No end. Imagine how long will that seem, even though it’s already like kalpas or eons passed already. Understand? (Yes.)

Now we go back to Lord Mahavira, our good and compassionate Lord. But this is too extreme for me. I don’t wish any Master to ever have to undergo this kind of ascetic life, which is so filled with suffering like this. It’s not necessary at all. I wasn’t born to be looking like an ascetic monk this lifetime. I’m born for you. I was born for this type of people who look through the clothes and the s

And Bodhisattvas, Saints, Buddhas are all over, in the ten directions, life after life. They are helping to rescue humans and to lift them up. Of course, friends include Bodhisattvas and Buddhas and Saintly beings. Now, the second type, maybe friend has more than just that. Sometimes, they just happen to be with you for a short while, but then they introduce you to some good teachings or a name of a Master, and it awakens something in you, and then you will go and find more of that teaching or that Master. These are also friends. And we have also invisible friends, like the angels who protect you. Now, there is another group of people; they are "Neutral." They are no harm to you, no good to you. Enemy has two types: outside your circle enemy and inside your circle enemy; we call "secret enemies." The enemy outside, of course, they do things very obviously against you, this is easier to deal with. You can escape, if you know, if you can. Secret enemy is more difficult. They make you even not want to practice anymore. And the worst thing is that they make you lose your belief in the right path to follow, right Master to believe in. These are the worst enemies.

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 5 of 6 July 14, 2019

And my cave in Spain, it was just a cave, a lot of rock and rough and it was not accessible. It's far away from any human's quarter. So, around is all trees and bushes, birds and squirrels and rabbits, and stuff like that. Oh, beautiful place! There's nothing, really, just that. But, for me, it's beautiful, because it's so quiet. But in that cave, I had the biggest ever realization. And the Gift that I gave some of you, also from that time. That was one of the best times in my life, just like in India when I had nothing. I love having nothing. You just feel so free. In heaven, you don't need to want anything. Or even whatever you want, it's already there for you. And even if you want anything extra just for creativity's sake, you just think about it, it's right there. But here, you are not allowed to use this. I'm not allowed to use so many things.

Four Types of Beings in Our Life, Part 6 of 6 July 14, 2019

Because mostly, you love your enemy. That’s the way it’s arranged in this world, so that you will equalize the hatred that you had with each other formerly. That’s how it goes. Life has to be about love. I wanted to tell you that because not only American husbands, but other people, other countries’ husbands, they’re also very loyal to their wives. And I’m very, very happy about that. In Spain, for example… That is from Scotland or England. In Spain also, whenever I talk to some men for anything… I normally don’t go anywhere, meet any man. It’s just when maybe in the restaurant, to the waiter, or the taxi, or the shop, or some people who worked in my house to repair things, they always talked very highly about their wives. Always my wife this, my wife that, my wife here, my wife there – seemed very respectful and endearing. And I was very happy. So, if any of you women complain about your husband, I think you should also introspect your style, your lifestyle; whether or not you cook too casually, and you do not put enough love in there, or not enough care to please your husband’s palate; whether or not you listen to his complaints or his requirements for some small things; or you are too bossy. You take care of all the small things, like who should be the next president, and you give him big things, like where do we go shopping next morning. And whether or not you take care about his feelings; just by the way. Whether or not you still respect and love him, or trying at least. Whatever it is, I think you’ve got the upper hand at home, because you put all the men at home to take care of the children and household, and you are here, all of you, the women. And these are the brave and rare escapists that could be in front of my face every Sunday, and they take turns even. I don’t see the same men every weekend, but I see the same women all the time. Please be merciful. We’re Quan Yin practitioners. We have also compassion and fairness. Let him also have a chance to see his Master. I don’t want to talk about that again. I know what you do at home. Don’t have to tell me. I know everything. Master knows everything. It’s good. Women mostly have more common sense, that I understand. But common sense does not always mean intelligence or wisdom. You must have love and wisdom as well. To be right all the time is not good for you, for your love relationship. You have to be also sometimes feminine, sometimes very cooperative. And let your husband also be right sometimes, in some small matter. Let him feel like a man. And don’t use all those excuses to say, “You don’t know anything anyway. You stay home. I go listen to Master.” Don’t use all his shortcomings to make advantage for you to do anything you want, or go anywhere you want and neglecting his feelings and his privileges and his rights; especially spiritual. Got that? (Yes!) You say “yes,” but behind me, you do “no.” I don’t know. Let other people practice, also is meritorious for you. That man really, he was just focused on talking to his wife. Even his wife talked to me and then because it concerned both, so he turned around a second and said, “Yeah, yeah,” like that. And then he turned back to her again. You imagine? Such a beautiful chick like me, young and beautiful and he didn’t care. And his wife was already older, just like you, maybe like me now, but that was ten years ago. I was still pretty; just joking with you. What I mean is, in the restaurant, there were also many other people, but he just focused on his wife, talking to her about what. I didn’t really listen, but I mean, things that were not really important, just only both of them interested in. So maybe after that, she’ll look at him with different eyes. She will have more respect and love for him, which is good for both of them. If you love your husband and respect your husband, also good for you, because he’s happy. And he’s happy, he will make you happy too, and happy atmosphere. What for you always have to be right? If not necessary, there’re many ways to be right. It doesn’t have to always be so rough. There was a story about a couple. Their neighbor, the two neighbors were going together on a pilgrim somewhere and they talked about their neighbors, a couple, behind their backs, of course. One of the pilgrims, one of the men said to the other man, he said, “You know what? My neighbors, they never argue. Never! The husband and wife are always very harmonious together, peaceful. My God! I wish my marriage life was also like that.” And he asked, “How about you?” You know, how about the other guy. He said, “Oh, you know, marriage is always like that. I don’t believe what you told me about the neighbors couple who never argue. I don’t believe that. I don’t believe you.” He said, “OK. After this, we come back to my village. I’ll invite you to my house and then you stay there a while longer, and then we’ll go visit the neighbors, and then you will believe me, that such a couple in perfect unison and harmony exists.” OK. Fine. After the pilgrimage, they came back and then, of course, they went to visit the neighbor’s house. And then the neighbor asked the husband about their marriage, the neighbor’s husband, the good couple’s husband about their marriage, how they managed to stay all these years without even one harsh word or one disagreement. He said, “Very easy. We are just like that.” So, the friend, the visitor said, “What do you mean like that? Can you tell us an example?” He said, “Well, not really. I don’t really have an example, because we just live on every day, and we don’t even think about anything, and we just live like that.” So, he said, “OK, OK.” And the neighbor who introduced, was not happy because the visitor did not believe him. So, he said, “You stay here longer with me and then we will find out. Maybe this couple, they’re just too natural or too shy or they don’t even think that they are in harmony, because they are always like that. So, you stay longer.” And after a while, they saw the husband going out to do something. They have a little hen “cuckookoo,” the chicken, but who doesn’t coo in the morning. So, they think maybe they need a new pot in the house. They could do with an extra pot. So, they talked to each other. The wife said they should go and sell this hen and then buy a pot. The husband OK’ed immediately, no argument. So, he took the hen, went outside… But then, on the road, there’s somebody else who wanted to sell him something in exchange for the hen, so the husband bought that. Maybe bought a little dog or something and brought it home. And the wife also said, “Ah! This is very good! Good idea! You bought a dog. Now we have a little company. I didn’t really need that extra pot anyway. I don’t know why I talked about that.” OK, good. And then later, later on, the dog made a lot of noise. Puppy, peed and pooed all over the house, made noise, so the wife said, “Oh, maybe we should exchange it for something else. You take him out and see who wants something else.” I made up the story along, but it’s based on the original story. I forgot what it was that he exchanged the chicken for. So, the husband took the dog. Of course, these two, the neighbor and the visitor followed them, just spied, quietly to spy, to see what he’s doing, and then followed him back home to see what the wife’s reaction was. So, then the husband took the dog out, and then somebody wanted that dog, it’s so cute, so exchanged it for maybe a pig or a smaller pig. It’s all right. So, the husband did not buy the pot anymore, and still took a pig instead, brought the pig home, and the wife said, “Oh, wonderful! How did you know? How do you know to do things? A pig is good for us. It brings luck. Very good, very good!” And so, the pig stayed. And then later, the pig also went all over the house, because they didn’t have a room, didn’t have a place for the pig, and they made a place, but the pig escaped and all that, so too much trouble. And the wife didn’t know how to feed the pig; never fed a pig before. So, she said, “Never mind, I think we still need to buy a pot instead of a pig. The pot we can use, and we don’t have to take care, and don’t need extra food for the pot. You know, the pig eats a lot.” So, OK. The husband took the pig outside, and went all over, and then exchanged for this and that, always the wife said, “OK! Good, good, good!” And later had to change. Finally, the husband took the last item, whatever that was. You imagine, whatever you say, it’s fine with me. Outside, and then on the road, he saw a man who was carrying a hen. That was his hen before! All the while, it’s still here. He said, “Oh, what are you doing with the hen?” He said, “Well, I bought it for my kid, but he didn’t like it, so I went out to see if anybody wants to exchange it for something.” He said, “Oh, good, good! OK. I have this. Do you want to exchange?” And he said, “Yeah! This is just what I wanted.” I don’t know what then? What else can we have? Maybe a little rabbit or something. “Yeah, I like. My kid would like that. OK. How about we swap it?” So then, the husband took the hen back home, and the other guy took the rabbit. When the husband came home, the wife exclaimed, “Wow! Nice to see the hen again! My God, I missed you! You’re really a good husband. You know what your wife wanted really, so thank you so much!” So, everything ended happily. So now, the neighbor and the visitor came back home and discussed it. He said, “You lose ten dollars.” They bet. “Now, give it to me. You see they never argue. See that?” This is the kind of relationship, it’s like best friends, best buddies, but hard to find. Even my so-called disciples argue with me all the time, many times. Not all of them, and not one person all the time, but they don’t argue maybe, but they do opposite things and all that. It causes some chaos and some confusion and trouble, and delays and timing lost and all that stuff. So, very difficult to find such a relationship in our world. But still, you try your best, because if your house is not peaceful, it’s difficult to find peace of mind. Because you face it; when you sit in meditation, you’re always thinking, “What did he say? Why did he say that to me? He should have apologized! I will make him apologize after I meditate, after I finish this session. God. One and a half more hours, I will let him know who is right.” For example. They’re always in your mind and you go nowhere. Peaceful solution is always the best. Even if you lose face or something, who cares? So, even if it’s your enemy, you just bear with it, because mostly, you love your enemy. That’s the way it’s arranged in this world, so that you will equalize the hatred that you had with each other formerly. That’s how it goes. Life has to be about love. So, if your husband, wife, kids happen to be your enemy and you know it for sure, well, just too bad. Just try to live on with it, until maybe next life, if you come back. I don’t wish you to come back but maybe you have to. If you don’t long enough to go Home, then this is where you stay. All right then. Time to go. OK, comrades. I’m leaving to have some food. If I invite someone else, you just take it as if I invited you, OK? (OK.) Just be happy. (OK.) Thank you. I said if I invite someone else, you just be happy as if it’s you. Then you’ll also have the same feeling, without food. Girls are too smart. Your husband can’t win argument with you, right? They can’t win argument with you. "Master is so beautiful." Thank you. You’re beautiful. I’m old, where is the beauty? I make up a little bit just for the videos, to be shown on TV. I am also a model to sell the clothes. Wearing loose clothes is better for meditation. Isn’t it? (Yes.) You can also wear it at home. It’s more comfortable to wear loose clothes when you meditate. It’s better for blood circulation, and it looks nice too, in case you have a fat bottom, or stout legs. Are you all Taiwanese (Formosan)? (Yes.) The locals. Well, you see me very often, so no need to envy them, OK? (OK.) I’m going to eat now. I haven’t even eaten yet. Nevertheless, you girls come a lot; it’s also a kind of compliment and glory to me, because usually girls are jealous with each other. Isn’t it? If a girl becomes famous, we won’t like it very much. Girls are more intuitive. So, you understand better what I say, maybe a little more than boys. So, since many girls follow me, it means I am great. Nobody praises me, so I praise myself. What to do? Before, in the time of enlightened Master Krishna, many girls followed Him at that time. He was surrounded mostly by girls. His attendants were girls, His companions were also girls. It was said that Krishna was very good-looking and attractive. You could tell from His photos. So, every time, when there was a chance to see Him, the news was spread by word of mouth, because there was no telephone at the time. So, they passed the words to one another. As it was too rushed, sometimes, the lipstick ended up here. The eyebrows or eyeliners were all messed up. Maybe at that time, not everyone could have a mirror. So, they did their makeup in a messy way. And Krishna would laugh whenever He saw that. Maybe they did that on purpose to make their Master laugh. It’s good that you all look neat. Wow! Everyone has an electric fan. That’s great. You take good care of yourselves. That’s good. I won’t need to worry then. I’m sorry. Because it’s hot and there are so many people here. Can’t afford to squeeze, but still squeeze in. No. I’m glad to see you, too. I’m glad you live so long. "Yes. Master, I love You very much. Please take care of Yourself." I love you too. You also take care. (OK.) Wow, how come your skin is still so shiny? No wrinkles, I can lend you some. You’re still here? I saw many old brothers and sisters who have followed me for thirty years, are still here. OK. Good appetite. (OK.) Bon appétit.

Buddhist Stories: Wish-Fulfilling Jewels, Part 1 of 10 Aug. 13, 2015

Now, I just want to tell you, just want to remind you. Because all of these stories and the merit that you acquire when you take care of the Buddha’s stupas, or you offer to the living Buddhas or the past Buddhas or the sangha - all of this is for the ordinary people - the people who want to be reborn again as gods in Heaven - maybe small gods, big gods, depends on their merit - or people who like to become humans again, with richness and power. But always being chased by the (bad) karma…. So mind you, all the merit that we dedicate to be a god, or angels or divas or humans with position, power, and money, brings us nothing, protects us from nothing. (Bad) karma is still there chasing after us, life after life, until somehow it’s dissolved. So it’s no safety. No safety at all for us to stay in the Heavens or stay on Earth with all power, merit, whatever it is. It’s all impermanent. So it’s better we practice, like immediate enlightenment, and then from then on you will never worry about anything else.

Buddhist Stories: Wish-Fulfilling Jewels, Part 2 of 10 Aug. 13, 2015

So that's why we should never, never ask to be born again, or even in this lifetime, to become a king or anything. You have enough food to eat, you have enough clothes to wear; that is the best thing already. And whatever's left, maybe you can spare it, then you give it to the poorer people. Whatever you can. Even just a little bit of something, some food. The food that we've wasted on our planet in every rich country, we could use that to nourish the whole planet three times over. We must organize together. The food organizations, the food ministries of all the countries have to sit together and tackle this intelligently, compassionately, or else. Or else we all have consequences. This story's about somebody named Đại Thí. He's the one who tried to empty the ocean. “Thus I have heard.” At one time, the Buddha was in the country called La-duyệt-kỳ (Rajagariha) in the mountain Linh Thứu (Ghridhrakuta). “Kiều-trần-như (Kaundinya), and then Mahakasyapa, and then Sariputra, and then Maudgalyayana, and another 500 big monks came out one by one, one by one, wanting to be His attendant. But He refused them all.” It's not easy. Everybody wants to be the Buddha's attendant. But you have to be able also.

At that time, one of the monks, he somehow intuitively knew that the Buddha wanted Ananda. And other people also understood that. And then Sariputra and Maudgalyayana came up to me and said, “Annada, I think the Buddha wants you to be His attendant. Come, get up quickly and then ask the Buddha to allow you to be His attendant.” “I don't know what to do. So I said, ‘If the two great elderly Reverends think thus, then please come and ask the Buddha for me. But in order to be the Buddha's attendant, I request three privileges.’” What do you think he asked? “Number one, if the Buddha had old clothes, he will not want to accept it.” “Number two, whatever the Buddha ate that's left over, do not give it to me.” “Number three, it's meaning that, depending on the season and time, only he himself will take care for the Buddha.” So the two great disciple monks came up and told all that to the Buddha. Then the Buddha explained like this: “But you should know it's not just this day. It's not just in this lifetime that he asked for this.” “A long time ago, past life, he also serve me and also did this.” Maybe that's why he knew everything. He knew about what Buddha wanted and what time he should give what. He was very pure and good. He was unconditional.

“Obeisance to the World Honored One. In the past life how did Ananda serve You? How did he know when to do what and when to give You what?” So the Buddha said, “A long, long time ago, limitless time past, at that time there was a king who ruled a very big country. In that capital city, there was a Brahmin man, Brahmin. And the king respected him like a teacher.” “So his first wife got pregnant. She gave birth to a son… I give him the name Great Charity.” “And this boy was very, very diligent and he loved to study. And he was also very intelligent already, so he learned everything by heart so quickly.” “One day, he said to his father, ‘Respected father, I’ve stayed in this palace a long, long time already. Please can I go out and have a look outside to see what the other people are doing?’” “A bunch of beggars…a group of people killing and preparing animals…farmers…hunters…the fishermen….” “Since then, since he saw all that, he saw that everyone was so ignorant and doing such terrible karma, he became very sad. And then he was thinking how to help all beings so that they had everything, not just physical contentment but also spiritually and mentally and everything.”

Then he came up to his father and said, "Respected Father, just now I went out into the suburban areas, into the rural areas, and I saw that our citizens, because for survival, are doing many things that are karmically heavy. After they die definitely they will fall into the Three Evil Paths." "Please, can you give me one of our stores of food so that I can go and give it to them." After a while of charity, many of the stores in his house had gone down. And then Great Charity thought to himself, "So, what can I do now so that I can continue to give to the citizens so that they are happy and contented?" "OK, maybe I'll go deep into the sea to find precious stones. That should be the best." And then 500 people liked to come with him. They were just walking and then the robbers came and took everything. They came to a citadel, a city, called Supara city. In this city, there was a noble person, a rich person. His name was Kapali. He had one daughter, very, very beautiful. Now, the Great Charity man came in front of the city wall, in front of the house, and knocked at the door and wanted to borrow some money. She came in and told her father, "Ba! Outside, there's a person knocking at the door. He's my husband!" And, of course, the noble rich man was so happy. Everything that he lost, he replenished them all.

After he brought the gold and everything back, he told everybody to buy a good boat and everything had to be very thick. And then after everybody arranged to go home, he said, "I'll stay here. I want to go down to the King of the Ocean and ask for the Wish-Fulfilling Gem. Then I can give to all the world's people. And it's never, never finished." "I do not fear the long distance and the dangerous journey going to the sea to take out the treasures, to help other citizens, so that they will not be hungry and thirsty anymore. This merit I dedicate to all the Buddhas in the ten directions. I want to forward it only to my Buddhahood in the future." And then he went down to sea now. Then he saw the King of the Ocean, sitting there on his jeweled throne, a seven-jeweled throne. And he saw Great Charity come in; he was so surprised. He was thinking, "How can he come here? He must be full of merit." And then the King of the Ocean felt very respectful. "But you stay here for one month first so that I can make some offerings to you. And then you preach to me." And then the King of the Ocean took the Wish-Fulfilling Jewel from his tuft of hair, and give it to him, and then he said, "Great Charity, Sir, your merciful heart is so great, so big. Your willpower is so incredible. In the future, you definitely will be a Buddha. After you become Buddha, please accept me then as a disciple with wisdom."

Buddhist Stories: Wish-Fulfilling Jewels, Part 7 of 10 Aug. 13, 2015

Walking for a while, he saw another citadel with walls all like green diamonds. And this, another Ocean King, sat on his seven-jeweled throne. So he asked, "Bodhisattva, is there something necessary that you have to come here?" So he said, "Your Majesty, I come here requesting of you the Wish-Fulfilling Jewel to help my people." So the King of the Ocean said, "Sir, this one can rain down food for all beings within 4,000 square miles. If you want to have it, please stay here two months. Every day, give me a lecture." After a while, he saw another citadel. And then the king, another King of the Ocean, sitting on his seven-jeweled throne. So he said, "This jewel can rain down seven kinds of jewels in the vicinity of 8,000 square miles. If you want it, you stay four months, preach to me, so that I know some of the Buddha's true Dharma." There were some dragons around there, knowing that Great Charity had come to the Ocean King, and had gotten the best Wish-Fulfilling Jewel, so they became greedy. And he thought to himself, "So it can only be the dragons that stole my jewels. I spent so much time and went through so much hardship to get them so that I can rescue other beings, to fulfill my wish of charity to give it to others. Even if I die, I will not go back home empty-handed. I will scoop all the water from the ocean until I see you down there."

“And then at that time, there was a person in the peaceful heaven. He looked down and saw that Great Charity was so determined to do good works to help all beings in the world. So he asked many of his friends in heaven, heaven friends to come down and quietly help. After the dragons saw that the water level kept lowering, they were so scared. …They returned the three jewels.” “So when Great Charity came back, he came and prostrated in front of the parents. Both of them were so touched, so in awe.” “And then, from then on, the whole planet, everyone had everything they needed, including jewelry and precious substances. And then he asked someone else to come in, announcing something again, ‘Now, I would like all of the citizens to try to practice the Ten Wholesome Deeds, and keep your speech, action and thinking pure and merciful, compassionate, loving and kind, filial and protective of each other….’” “At that time, on the planet here, everyone relying on his blessing had everything they needed, and also diligently practiced the Ten Wholesome Deeds. Because of that, after they died, all of them went to Heaven.” “Now the Buddha reminded everybody, ‘The Great Charity person was my former incarnation. And the Ocean King, who stayed in the golden citadel now is Ananda, who treated me generously and respectfully.’”
