Use Our Wisdom, Part 6 of 10

Even a simple place doesn’t mean lousy, sloppy, or shabby. A simple place can be very beautiful, very cute, and lovely, and very warm, cozy, cozy. I like those. I think I’ll forget Lord (Mahavira) today. Sorry. My calendar is coming out. You stay here and you bless everybody while I talk, or you talk, and I just sit there. It would be nicer.So, we do really need wisdom. Not because you get initiation and are secure, and then you don’t have to grow up anymore. We do have to. People outside, when you hire them for something the disciples cannot do, the Taiwanese (Formosan) cannot do, they hire outside people. Oh, they’re absolutely polite. They even stayed late at night to finish just the roof, glass roof for me. They stayed overnight. They stayed until late at night to do it, and even then, it was their New Year. It’s the most important for them, but they stayed to do it. I did not ask, but they knew I needed it.I stayed on the roof, and then they put the filtered sunglass on top for me, and they stayed late. Of course, later I rewarded them with extra money. I said, “This is for your wife, your kids at home. When you get home, you say this is for New Year, so they don’t complain (about) why you stayed late, and they don’t doubt that maybe you stayed somewhere else. This money is the proof. And tell them they can call me, call my people here to prove that you were here all this time with all your workers and many other eyewitnesses.” He said, “No problem, we are working, we are not doing anything.” I said, “You know, I know, but the wife doesn’t know. We women are very, very careful about husbands and men. We never trust 100%. We always reserve something to prove, for fun. Just to have something to think about or to be on edge, to be alive, like, ‘We’re still here. Watch us. We’re sharp.’”And later, I gave much more extra money, not just the overtime. They didn’t want to take it. They respect me so much, even they’re not disciples. Respect. So, everybody was willing to stay and work. But I gave them extra money for overtime and then for New Year, for them and extra more for their family. I said, “This is for your wife. Tell her why you got this money, so that she doesn’t complain or she doesn’t feel hurt, that maybe you treated the work more importantly than your family, even on New Year’s Eve time. I really appreciate that you stayed. I did not expect it, but I really appreciate it so much that tonight I can stay here now, that I don’t have to stay in the room downstairs.”I don’t like the room. It’s just an empty roof, and then they put a tent for me, and I was so happy there. Really, I was reluctant to leave. Only after I discovered the cave, then I was not reluctant anymore. I moved immediately, like love at the first sight. But I was very pleased up there. I was so contented with a tent and the roof, empty everywhere. I was truly happy. During the retreat, I had to stay. I had to bear it until after the retreat, but I had to wear the shoes instead of walking bare feet like in the house, as I like. I wore the slippers just in case. And I didn’t touch the wood door, the poisonous door. I used cloth or something, or I did it with the elbow, with the cloth already on to avoid, in case, because I’m sensitive, I’m fragile, I’m small. I’m the smallest around here, am I not? Don’t you consider that? Without the high heels, you wouldn’t find me at all. “Where is Master? She disappeared!”One time, I was in France SMC center, and I always invited the Westerners, because it’s very small, and short-term Westerners come to my little hut behind the center. And I put vegan bread and even just vegan butter, they said, “Oh, yum, yum, yum.” I put anything, “Yum, yum, yum.” Whatever I gave, “Yum, yum!” They liked it; they were kind of, wow, so eager to get just a morsel. And then because it was in my place, I didn’t wear high heels; I just wore similar like this. If you were there or not, I don’t remember. If you don’t remember, you were not there. None of you. Imagine. You were there, you ate my (vegan) bread? (Yes.) OK. See that? One witness. And of course, so I wore sandals, slippers. And I wore this monk’s robe. And I was chopping (vegan) bread for everybody and putting some vegan mayonnaise or whatever I had that they prepared for me in the fridge. I said, “Bring more bread. Even just bread alone, they take it like gold.” Oh, my God. I’d never seen, just like hungry ghosts or something.They’d already eaten dinner, these were extra. But everybody’s like… Oh, my God, I thought I could open a shop and sell to disciples and I’d earn millions in no time, surely. They’d fight for it. Queuing outside, and making me more famous. And outsiders would even queue with them. “It must be good because a lot of people queuing.” They don’t know the disciples; they’d queue for anything as long as I am there. They’re just queuing, queuing. If I open a stinky tofu shop, oh, I’m sure you all will be standing there, drooling all day long. Come back again and again.So, I was chopping (vegan) bread, and some more people kept coming because this is a small place. It’s just like a small corridor and I had a little hut, maybe two by one and a half, something like that. Those storerooms that are ready-made, you buy and then you put there, and you just stay in. Wonderful! I love this kind of arrangement. I never liked any big building, bang, bang, boom, boom, cement. I don’t feel the difference between a big room and a small room. I’m small, luckily also. I enjoy this kind of quick build, simple. You live inside, you feel like, OK, you’ve accomplished something, just the way you like it. And then I chopped-chopped (vegan) bread and one of your sisters, her husband was there, and she was there, and she looked at me head to toe, toe to head again, and said, “Oh, without the high heels, You look so small!” I said, how can she guess? I said, “How can you guess? Didn’t you know this before? I’m glad you noticed now. Probably your wisdom eye opened.”Even a simple place doesn’t mean lousy, sloppy, or shabby. A simple place can be very beautiful, very cute, and lovely, and very warm, cozy, cozy. I like those. I am also busy. I don’t need to clean too big. That kind of house, you clean in “zoop,” one second, two the maximum. Very quickly. And you don’t need a lot of things, just a towel, a cleaning cloth; that’s it. You don’t need a lot of vacuum cleaner, that’s one thing less.Tell me, Nick. You look wise and old. I mean not old, wise. (Old, old, OK. I…) We’re in the same boat, don’t worry. Tell me. (I had a house with a wooden floor, and it was very, very old, but it was still new. And everybody would come in and say, “Why don’t you put the shellac or the shiny things that they do?”) Polishing it, right? (And I said, “No, I like it like that.” I would go with the vacuum cleaner, clean up, and I loved it. But everybody else wanted that shiny thing, not me.) Yeah, I know, I know. They have nothing else to do. (No. Yeah.) Just like if you’re just sniffling a little bit, ten people come up and tell you, “Take this, take that. Go to that doctor he’s good; that doctor, no, no. I know something, home remedy, take this.” And then they give you ten thousand medicines out of love. (And then some people said, “Oh, why don’t you tear it down and build a new one?”) Yeah, yeah, yeah. (I said, “No, no, I like this. I like simple.”)They told me like that with my old farmhouse in Spain. (I understand, in the same boat.) I didn’t even live there. I lived outside in a small hut I bought myself. It was too small actually, 1.60 (meter) and 1.90 (meter), but I fit. I even had a heater inside, a small television as well, and some hooks to hang my clothes. And I bought some small square things like they make it ready, a square box like this and you have two drawers in it. So, I bought about ten of them. I put them together, it became a bed. And I put a mattress or whatever I had on it, and that was wonderful. I had my clothes under, my tools, even a hammer and… Yeah! A hammer and a screwdriver, all kinds of stuff, you have no idea. I had all, it was organized.And then I was very happy, but they said, “This house…” Any worker who came to help me always advised me something. I said, “Does that cost me something also? Is that included in the price that you fix my pipe or not?” Just a joke.Anybody who came there always advised me, “Tear it down. Build a modern one.” I said, “I don’t even live in it, what for? Just leave it there, souvenir.” And if it becomes a ruin, then in Spain we have many ruins everywhere, so it just joins the club. I said, “What for do you take care of the things that you don’t need and unnecessary? It’s not even obliged (obligatory) by law.” But everybody who came, the guy who fixed the road a little bit, “You, that house is too old already.” I said, “It’s still livable. It’s still standing.” “You must build a new one. I know a builder, very good, very fast, cheap.” I said, “No need cheap or expensive. I just don’t need to.” Later, I was tired, so I said, “OK, OK. I’ll think about it maybe. If I want, I’ll call you. Give me your phone number quickly.” And then they were happy. “Call me. I’m always available for You.” My God.And sometimes I didn’t call them, they called me, “Hey, Your house, how about it now?” I said, “Nothing, it’s the same like before. You want to go have a look? Be welcome.” Oh, man, I’m telling you, people don’t understand. They busy themselves for nothing with too much trimming grass or manicuring plants. There are some manicured plants I’m going to remove also. Just like the fence, the plants they planted around the fence to keep it green or safe or whatever when they grow thicker together, but I don’t want it. If they grow very tall, and I don’t cut it, then it covers my view. If I let people cut it, I don’t feel good. I don’t want trees to be chopped and cut if truly not necessary.

The Life of Lord Mahavira: Saving Gaushalak, Part 3 of 3

The Life of Lord Mahavira: Saving Gaushalak, Part 3 of 3

So, this Tapas (ascetic) was really very polite, and indeed educated, spiritually. So, now, this ascetic very politely, humbly said, '"Pardon me, Sir, pardon me, O Embodiment of Benevolence! I did not know that this man was Your disciple.'" "Gaushalak was saved from his imminent death." And, "He asked, 'Sire! What does this abode of insects say?'" He's still that. "Mahavira replied, 'He was just going to turn you to ashes with his fire-power. You were saved by me, by my pacifying power. Do not disturb anyone in the future.'" So, we always have to respect the people who try to see God in their own way. Every story has some moral lesson to learn from. Remember that. And to improve yourself wherever you lack. We are born perfect, but then we'll be in the world and contaminated all the time. And it becomes our nature, second nature. So, watch that. Watch it. Try as best as you can. Make people happy. If God gives us intelligence, or talent of some kind, some degree, that is because we have to serve God in different ways: helping others, helping Hiers children. If we have talent, we must use it for a good cause. That's the best thing we can do with our life and talent.

O călătorie spre Malaga, partea 3 din 9

Umilinţa este la fel ca oricare altă calitate, o foloseşti doar când ai nevoie. Nu poţi să o pui pe umerii tăi sau să o scrii aici, toată lumea ştie că eşti smerită. Deci, este foarte dificil să ştii cine este smerit şi cine nu.

Buddhist Stories: The Land of Amitabha Buddha, Part 7 of 7

Buddhist Stories: The Land of Amitabha Buddha, Part 7 of 7

I do love you. But it’s not the way that you think, like humans love each other. It’s not, it’s different, a little different, a big difference, OK. Maybe it doesn’t look like love, but it is real love. It’s different from human emotional love or attaching love. It’s quite different. I don’t know how to describe it, but it’s love.Anyone else? Feel free. (Master.) Hallo. (Maybe I can’t express it by words, but I just felt that You have so much love as God for us, because even just one fraction of Ihôs Kư power can destroy this world. But You, I thought that this physical job for the Tim must be very hard. Because even You are present on this world, people still can’t be awakened. So it must be very hard for You. But You still have this, so much love too. When You concentrate and fix the watch, You just, it’s very hard. When You’re just moving by Your hand, it’s easier than fixing the watch.) The watch? (Yes, the watch. This world, this Earth, is very small compared to other universes and other planets. But You, the God concentrated so hard on this world. So I’m sorry, I can’t express.) I concentrate as hard in other worlds too. (So my question is, is it the most, hardest part of this job in this world?) Is in this world? (Yes.) More or less. Yeah. More or less. (Most humans are so hard.) You know it yourself, don’t ask me. You know more than I. You can see. It’s too hard. (So, it’s indescribable, infinite love You have for us.) No problem. (I’d like to express thank You so much, Master.) It’s OK. No problem. (Thank You. We love You so much.) I try, I try to love you.No, I do love you. But it’s not the way that you think, like humans love each other. It’s not, it’s different, a little different, a big difference, OK. Maybe it doesn’t look like love, but it is real love. It’s different from human emotional love or attaching love. It’s quite different. I don’t know how to describe it, but it’s love. OK, even if you don’t see it, it doesn’t look like love, but it is love. Physically you can also feel a little, Right? But it’s more than that. Like the Buddha, He doesn’t always say “I love you” to Ananda or Sariputra or anyone else, but His action, His action. He forsakes the kingdom. He forsakes His wife, 500 wives, all the palaces, summer palace, winter palace, spring and autumn palace. He forsakes them all, and goes out begging on the street for the sake of everyone that He met and more than that. That is real love. But He doesn’t show or talk about love in any of the sutras. It’s men stuff also. Men don’t always say “I love you” that much, even though they do. And like this guy, I don’t think he says he loves his wife, but he sits one month long for her, just for her. Imagine, three hours of Quan Yin and then must have Light to match. One month long, you sit almost like the Buddha. Buddha and Jesus 49 days. Jesus 40 days and Buddha 49 days, you’re almost there. It’s just that you sit just for one woman, and They sit for one universe, one world at least, OK. If you sit that much for a higher goal, you’d probably get that also, you’d get it! It’s good to love someone that much, good to love someone more than yourself. It’s very good, very good. So that also brings you to enlightenment, no problem. OK? (Thanks to You, thanks to You.) You’re welcome.I just remember a story, just to lighten up. The mother gave birth to twins, one boy and one girl. And then her brother came, and was helping after the labor, and visiting the sister. And the other sister at home, or maybe aunt or something, asked, “What did you do there?” He said, “Oh, I’m helping the sister,” because after the birth she’s kind of not very communicable, probably sick or something. “So what are you doing?” “I have to do many things, paperwork for them, and making names for them and declaring names and families and all that.” “Oh, so you chose a name for the two, for the twins?” And he says, “Yeah, yeah.” “So what did you choose for the girl?” He said, “Denise.” It sounds nice, Dennis or Denise. “OK, good name. And how about the boy?” He said, “Denephew.” Because I just think of de nada, so then Deniece and Denephew, so simple. But it’s possible that some people are like that, it’s true. They choose the name for their children like “US dollar.” They say, “Ustdalla.” US dollar, they like it. Because an American name, it sounds very trendy. I don’t remember some other names, they are very funny. And then the other one is like, “Money,” something like that. It’s in English. They thought, wow, English name, quite modern, quite kind of posh. Chic name, dollar.Anything else? Yeah, behind there. (Good morning, Master.) Morning. (I love You. I have one question. I am a preschool teacher. So every day, I prepare the meal for the children. But some of them, they are not vegan. But I have to prepare...) Meat food. (Yeah, meat food.) Animal food. (Yeah, animal food. But my assistant does that, I only do the...) Vegan. (vegan parts.) OK, good. (But they transferred me to a different school because we have a big...) Chain of schools. (Yes, in the US. Many years I’ve been working in there, and they transferred me to a different school. And the supervisor told me to prepare the meat part, too, for the children. So I quit my job because I don’t want to break the Five Precepts. Is that right?) It’s your life. (Yes, I know. But I want to ask You, if the disciple is a preschool teacher, can they still prepare the meat part for the children or not OK?) Better not, better for you if not. (Yes, so I quit my job.) It’s not forbidden, but better not. (Yes, that’s what I think.) Yeah, if it were me, I’d probably do the same. I would choose my spiritual value instead of just earning to eat for one lifetime, and wasting a lot of merits for many lifetimes. (Yes.) Wasting the rare opportunity to progress. I would do the same. (Yeah, so I quit.) But it’s me. So it’s up to you. (I quit my job. I think like You.) So what are you doing now, jobless? (I stay home but I work for my husband, I cook for him.) Also cook meat? (No, my husband is a new disciple, he just got initiated. Yes, it’s good.) So you’re a chef cook. (For him.) Private butler, private cook. OK. If he doesn’t mind, OK. Find many other jobs, anything. Go out and sell stinky tofu, OK too. Make (vegan) cakes or something, sell them outside. Bake some (vegan) cakes and sell them to some restaurant. Do anything. There are a lot of jobs. (Thank You.) You’re welcome.Anyone else? Here. (Master, I just want to share with our brothers and sisters that our prayers are always truly answered.) Yeah, if you’re sincere. Yes, you’re connected. Yes, tell me. (And for a long time now, every time, almost every time, I ask something or I have a question, or I don’t know what to do, or there’s just something I need help with, almost every time, I’m answered straightaway. If it’s not straightaway, it’s within a few minutes.) Yes. (If it’s more difficult, more complicated, definitely within a day.) Yeah. (But usually it’s straightaway.) Yeah. (But the thing is that Heaven communicates with us in many different ways,) Yes. (and we have to have our eyes open and our ears open,) Yeah. (in order to interpret the message.) Correct, correct. (Because many times, our prayers are always answered, but many times we don’t understand.) We don’t notice also. (And that’s why. One time recently, my husband and I were facing a very challenging situation. It seemed almost insurmountable, almost physically impossible to overcome. Most people would consider it impossible to overcome. But of course we’re disciples, and we know that everything is possible. And so we were talking about this while we were driving in the car.) Yeah. (And of course we do our meditation, we increase our Quan Yin. But also on a physical level, we were talking about what we can do to...) Yes. (try to overcome this problem.) Yes. (And then at that time, at that point, we reached a traffic jam on the road. It wasn’t just a normal traffic jam, it was big lorries, like huge vehicles. We couldn’t even see what the obstruction was.) Yes. (And we thought we were going to be stuck there for hours. And then suddenly there was a little space, so we said, “OK, quickly go there,” and then somehow, somehow we just weaved our way through it. It seemed impossible, but suddenly we found ourselves out of this traffic jam and everyone else was still there. And then we carried on driving, thinking, “What happened there?” And then I said to my husband, “You know, that was a message, that was a message that we will get through, we will find a way.”) Yeah. Understand. (And this is how messages... This is just one example out of many, many hundreds, that happen to us all the time. And this is how we receive our messages. So I just want to say to our brothers and sisters that we’re never alone.) Yes, keep your eyes open, ears open, eyes open, mind open, heart. (Whenever we pray and we have a question, it’s always answered.) Yes, I told that in the initiation time. Probably not directly to you but I say that whenever I give initiation, and I hope the Quan Yin Messengers say the same. Either you ask in your mind or you write it down, and the answer comes right away, mostly. Or sometimes in a vision, or sometimes in a dream, or sometimes through something else. There’s a sign or something. OK. It’s good. It’s only because both of you are beautiful souls inside. You have faith and you’re sincere, and you really try your best in meditation. And you do everything else in life also diligently, you don’t rely on anyone, or you don’t just sit there, waiting for things to happen. You do things and you’re very sincere, both of you, that’s why. That’s why you can see. Other people would say, “Don’t even think about it, don’t even try to weave your way out, or don’t even think that it’s a sign of the answer.” Very good to know.I was very happy these days because so many beings come happily, and tell me that they’re happy and they say, “Thank You, thank You” and all that. And some of them thank you, thank relatives, thanking you also. For this retreat as well. They also helped a lot, especially also during retreat. They come often, not just today or to retreats, but this retreat a lot more people came. I mean beings, invisible beings, just like movies, in front of me. And it’s funny, that they came in but their face, just the face, probably with the whole body there’s no room. My screen is small. And their faces are even minimized, so that as many, as many go in front of me as possible. So I asked Heaven how many of them, because they keep coming. They said they cannot count. They’re just so happy, smiling or some are smiling but serious; they look serious but not sad. Solemn but not sad. They are all very grateful. I’m glad too. Good, anything else? Here, please. (Good morning, Master.) Morning. (I just want to share my inner experience.) Yeah. (During the Thailand retreat last time, the very crowded one. Forty thousand of them.) Really? (Yes, it was 40,000. And they even tell me that the Thailand newspaper, they published 40,000 people have elevated.) Has invaded Thailand. (Have elevated into the Third-Level Buddha.) All reach the level of Buddha, 40,000? (Yeah. They wrote in a newspaper heading.) That’s what they wrote? Wow! (Yeah, somebody told me that.) Yeah. I didn’t read that. (And then I went to the retreat. Because we cannot go inside the hall, so some of them were asked to stay in the room, so it’s my turn to stay in the room. I went inside. There was nobody in the room, there was kind of a breeze, like a wind blowing.) Wind blowing. (Yeah, so I felt very comfortable. So I sat there to meditate, and then You appeared and it was so bright. You were having so bright (inner Heavenly) Light. And then You told me, “Oh you have, I have elevated you to the Third Level.” And then You spot an (inner Heavenly) Light on me and it spiraled around my body. And I feel so, so, so nice, so happy.) Blissful, just nice and happy? (No, later on, another sister, she went to the hall to listen to Your lecture. And then she rushed to the room. And she was panting and she was telling me, “Oh, Master elevated everybody to the Third Level!” That was exactly the words You told me when You came to the room. I was so surprised but I didn’t dare to tell her my inner experience. Because I think they wouldn’t believe me.) They would, they would. (Because I was thinking, is it real? Already elevated to the Third Level?) It’s good, it’s good. So I’d like to thank You for elevating us to the Third.) You are very welcome. Why cannot you guys talk in a normal voice? Like your mother here. “I thank You, Master.” “I love You so much.” Even when singing, “I will forever love you.” Singing Aulacese (Vietnamese) is the same. Normally you sing better, but here it’s a different voice. OK, all of you are happy, I’m glad, I’m glad to hear good experiences.Some more? No? OK. OK, then. You’ll probably go to eat. Or, what time is it now? Ah, past, oh look at that, we’re on time. Breakfast is ready for you. Breakfast in bed even, almost like in bed. It’s good, huh? Anyone else want to say something? Otherwise, “buon appetito!” It was not bad talking to you four hours on end, no, five, three. I came at what? Five o’clock? More or less, right? Four o’clock? No. Half past four? Four thirty? Then I could stay another half an hour and then become four hours. No, you’re joking. You need to go to eat. You go to eat, and your mama will go to sleep. I don’t know if I can sleep.My dog, he did it again. Yesterday, it was thundery and raining, and he jumped on my bed again. My bed is under the bed, because I use the bed to put things now. And then I slept under the bed and then he was so scared he jumped on the bed again. I said, “You’re a tough guy, you don’t worry about that.” But too much thunder, and so quick. Because their ears are very sensitive. So we heard a little bit, we were already very scared. Not scared but feeling uncomfortable. Very loud. And then for dogs, it would be worse. So he likes to hide. Good morning. Good appetite. OK? (Thank You, Master.) All right, see you later. Love you, love you.( Love You.)

The body is a really funny thing. You can really push it. Sometimes I work very hard, I’m very tired. I want to sleep but I cannot, because of the deadline. Things you cannot say “tomorrow.” So, I just go out, do some whatever silly exercise, and come back and work again, or go drink something, eat something. Just take a break, a few minutes, and then it’s OK.First, they say, “You are vegetarian, right? You’re vegan, right?” And I say, “Yes.” “Ah, yes, I know. You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, right? Yes or no?” And then if I… I cannot say no, and I say, “Yes,” and then they ask again and again and again. “Really? It’s You? Yourself? Supreme Master Ching Hai self?” So I say to the assistant, “Tell her.” I’m embarrassed, man. I cannot just say, “Here! Me! Gorilla coming.” Keep asking ten times, I’m embarrassed. Everybody is looking and listening now. The whole restaurant knows. Before, they didn’t notice; they kept eating their own noodles, minding their own salad. Until they all make a big deal and take photos and whatnot, and then the whole restaurant begins.But at least I can escape quickly. I say, “Sorry, we have to go.” But not like in our restaurant, from the beginning to the end, I just sit there like a theater, for people to watch. And even if the customers did not know, did not notice, the disciples make them. “My Master’s here! Come and look! Blessing!” Oh, blessing. Can I even eat my (vegan) soup in peace and then blessing maybe later? How can I sit there and eat? I just feel shy. Everybody sees if the noodles fall out or not. Or whether or not it’s different when the Supreme Master Ching Hai eats the salad? “Does it stick on Her teeth or not? Because everybody else has that, does She? Because She is the Supreme Master, maybe She eats differently.”And then that’s it. That’s it. I can never finish my (vegan) noodles, because they keep talking. They come and ask questions. I cannot eat, I might get strangled inside, by answering. Then the noodles might strangle me inside, or choke. “Sorry, cannot talk. Water! Please, water!” Oh, man. So, in case you want to be a Master, you should be put off by now (by) all the stories I told you. Normally, if I go, if I eat alone, if they don’t make noise, then nobody’d notice. They also talk with their relatives and friends. They enjoy their noodles, eat their salad. They don’t look at me because so many customers come in and out; not everybody keeps staring at everybody – until they stare at me. And then they make noise, then invite everybody to come and look at me for blessing, you know that? Just a really, poor Master. Like a prisoner, can’t go anywhere.I am so lazy to go out because of that. I don’t know where to go because, mostly, I find a normal outside restaurant, vegan. But, of course, I would prefer to make business also for my people, but I can’t. I might as well never go, because when I go there, I cannot eat anything. She keeps talking and answering. Because all the customers also come, asking and telling me their own opinions about religion, and ask my own opinion about religion, which they don’t care anyway. They just want to talk. And then they tell me their stories, how religious they are, for example, and how they understand about the Diamond Sutra and Surangama Sutra, for example. They would tell me; they would lecture to me. And then I just have to sit there, thinking of my (vegan) soup, listening but not hearing anything. My mind is too occupied with the soup, my favorite soup, and it’s getting colder and colder by (the) minute.So, finally, I say, “OK, we have to go.” “You pack to go?” “No, no, sorry. It’s OK, we can eat at home. Thank you very much.” Go to a restaurant and go home to eat, and not my favorite soup. I don’t want to stay longer, because I’m just kind of feeling shy, feeling uncomfortable with so much attention and being lectured with so many sutras. And even other religious (people) also come and tell me things, or introduce me to another guru. “You will learn a lot from him. You don’t know, wow, he is really something, I’m telling You. I’m not telling a lie. You go and have a look. Go try, go try!” I don’t have enough time to try my own Guru already.I have to do a lot of work. Nobody thinks I have no time. Because I go eat at a restaurant, they think I do that every day, enjoying stuff. They don’t know I’ve been meditating for one week long already or two weeks and haven’t eaten this kind of soup for long, long, long, long, long years. Because not every Aulacese (Vietnamese) restaurant cooks the same food that I like, and different people cook differently. So, anyway, I give up. Even the normal people, normal restaurants, they would recognize, but at least they don’t put their heads over my soup and let me eat first, sometimes. So, sometimes we just buy it and go in the car and eat, enjoy freedom, fresh air. It’s not too bad. Seeing all the cars passing by and “Hallo!” “Hallo!” Because they saw we parked the car on the roadside, and three just nosing in the soup, so they would think, be curious a little bit. “Hallo?” So, we said, “Hallo.” “Hallo?” “Hallo.” It’s fun to eat on the street sometimes. You make a lot of friends. I am thinking to move to Taipei. What do you think? Can you afford it? (Great.) Great. Can you afford it? Yes? (Yes.) No. It’s maybe expensive. Taipei is expensive. And I don’t know if any hotel would like to bear you kind of people: laughing, clapping, crying for no reason, sitting all day, sleeping all night. Oh no, sitting all night, sleeping all day. Don’t move, or move, and go ga-ga when one person comes in, “Oh, Master!” Like that. Wake up all their customers.I don’t know if any hotel would like to have you. Do you own any hotels in Taipei? (Many of them. I think one initiate owns one, Master.) Yes? (I think one initiate.) Really? How many rooms? (But it’s a small one...) How many rooms? (I am not local. Sorry, Master.) How small? Where is he? Is he here, she/he here? Hotel owner? Raise hand. Taipei. No? Do you know? Does anyone in Taipei know about it? You know? (It’s around the Taipei railway station.) Do you know? (I only know that it is around the Taipei railway station. But it’s quite small. It only occupies one or two levels inside a building. It has very few rooms.) How many rooms? (Very few.) Is every room small? (Yes.) It’s Taipei. How can the rooms be big? But it’s better than nothing. We can divide it into many levels inside. Because we only sit.I said, inside we can make many levels, inside a room, because we only sit, we’re not doing anything. There are no activities, so can sit, and then another on top, another on top, or sit on the shoulders, save work. The big guys sit on the (Can sit on the bottom.) bottom, and then the smallest guys or skinny like me sit on top. We also practice kung fu. You get muscles, more and more every day. I’m sure you can do that, look at your tattoo. If you can bear all that, then you can bear us. Too many. Sometimes not enough room. Taipei is small. They have a center also, but I don’t think… How many people can fit in the Taipei Center at a time? How many people at a time or in a day? My God! Nobody lives in Taipei. (About one thousand people.) Only one thousand. My God. Here’s one thousand already. Today is less. Sometimes a lot of people come.Taipei has a center but only 1,000 people. You have to put your ear (phone) on because sometimes I speak Chinese, sometimes I speak Greek. One thousand. But for them, it’s 1,000. If we come in 1,000, where would they stay? Outside? They rent it, but it’s a very nice place. And they have food cooked inside. Very nice vegan stinky tofu. I ate there only once. But they also have vegan soup, Aulacese (Vietnamese) soup, and all kinds of stuff. It’s really wonderful.You girls need some new clothes or not? There’s a shop outside. Go select what you want, as many as you want, and I sign. OK? Just tell them to put it on Master’s account. It’s my shop. I heard, I’m not sure. You guys also. OK? After this, you can go out there shopping. Do go on a shopping spree. I’ll take you. OK? Maybe we can go now, in a while. You can buy what you want. There are long dresses for winter also. There are (vegan) cakes, (vegan) cookies, also, (vegan) sandwiches. I’m not sure how tasty it is because I have not tasted it. But clothes, if you need more, you can. OK? Some to change, you know for wash and wear. You guys also. Today, I wanted to tell them to tell you guys to come, but I completely forgot. One thing after another. You know? And it’s just so busy, busy. I didn’t sleep all night and the night before also. So much disturbance and pain. Yeah?And last night because of the dogs; I waited for them outside next to the gate. And then when they came back, thirsty and hungry, they ate. I didn’t have any food except some vegan bread. Even frozen bread but it’s not hard. So, I chopped and they ate like crazy. I said, “Don’t ever go out again. Next time you won’t have food.” I just say that, but they know I’m just joking. Even if I’m not joking, they don’t care. They know nothing will happen to them. I said, “How can I love these kinds of dogs like you? How can I?” And they came, licked my toes, saying sorry, stuff like that. And then you melt. And then it starts all over again the next night. Even last night, I was very tired. I said, “Tonight, maybe no dogs.” I must send them somewhere, to sleep in their own room because I was very tired. I wanted to sleep. I really was sleepy already. But then I said, “Oh no. Then they cannot see me on Sunday, all day and then maybe at night also.” Because when I come back, maybe I’ll need concentration to work. A lot of documents were waiting because in the morning, I didn’t do it. I was busy with other things.They came back late last night, about three o’clock. Then I had to feed them because I knew they were hungry. They’d been running for three hours and a half. Can you imagine? And thirsty, so I had to give them water, change the water, give them food, and then it’s already almost day. And then I had to go and pick up my clothes, see which one I’ll wear today, and then I had to fix it, etc. I didn’t sleep at all. And I thought I could not even come here. I was that tired! But when I’m here… Yeah, I’m telling you. The body is a really funny thing. You can really push it. Sometimes I work very hard, I’m very tired. I want to sleep but I cannot, because of the deadline. Things you cannot say “tomorrow.” So, I just go out, do some whatever silly exercise, and come back and work again, or go drink something, eat something. Just take a break, a few minutes, and then it’s OK. And this morning, after I took a shower… Because I’m coming to see you, I didn’t want to smell bad, because the whole week I did not have time to shower. Really like that. So, then I took a shower. After that, I said, “Oh no. No. No, no, no, no. No! Not now, not now, not now, not now. No!” And I splashed some cold water on my face. It’s still a “no, no, no, no, no.” I said, “What shall I do?” Today, there are some new Westerners and Asians coming, so I cannot not see them. And then my house has people coming to work. I cannot stay there either. Of course, I can; I shut all the windows and doors, draw the curtain, and just... I could. But I just said, “No, no, no, no, no!” And then, I don’t know, I was really tired. On the way here, I was still feeling sleepy. I thought I could come here and just sleep. I thought I might come here and just sleep and let you just look at me. Because you say you always want to see me, so here I am. Why not? But then, when I came here, I didn’t feel sleepy anymore. Your body is really something. You can push it.A long time ago, there was an American monk. His name was Kapleau, Roshi Kapleau. I’m not sure if he’s still alive or not. He came to Taipei, Taiwan (Formosa) to lecture before. And he went to a temple and I was there, visited that temple, and I also met him. At that time, I didn’t have money. I cleaned the temple and only (had) NT$500 per month, and you had to buy everything from that. That was in Taiwan (Formosa), not in America. In America, I didn’t even get anything. And I went to another temple and then I saw him there. So, I offered him whatever that money could buy, these dates, but Taiwanese (Formosan). It’s green; it’s so big. Dates. Green dates, green color. Dates, right?And I bought just a small amount in a bag. And I went there and offered to the abbot at that temple, and he shared it with Roshi Kapleau. Roshi is Japanese, it means “master,” master of Zen. Meaning he already became a teacher, he could teach Zen already, so, Roshi Kapleau. And he talked in Taipei before. One time, he came all the way from America. He wrote a book also. He went to Japan and studied Zen there. I will get to the point soon. You know my calendar by now. It makes it more interesting. Otherwise, I’d just tell you in two seconds, finished, nothing else and no punch line or no waiting.

Una din păsările mele este aşa. Una din păsările mele este bunica mea. Ea se comportă exact la fel. Mă iubeşte foarte mult, deci a vrut să fie aproape, de aceea. Dar nu trebuia să o facă. Dar când se duce înapoi, o să ajungă şi mai sus, da. Chiar şi aşa! Afacere dublă! Iubire şi este cu mine şi la fel, se înalţă între timp.

O călătorie spre Malaga, partea 8 din 9

Să-ţi umpli timpul cu iubire, să-l umpli cu iubire. Este foarte dificil să stai singură şi să simţi iubire. Trebuie să dai iubire. Poate tu ai prea multă iubire. Trebuie să te duci şi să dai, atunci te simţi mai împlinită, mai mulţumită. Încearcă asta. Ce spui?

The True Meaning Of Monkhood, Part 5 of 9

00:25:33

The True Meaning Of Monkhood, Part 5 of 9

The Original Self is the Light. The Original Self is the inner Sound. That’s your Original Self. No face, no eyes. It’s just brightness and free-spirited (Inner Heavenly music.) You are just that. (Next question. Thank You Master for sending maya to the eternal hell. Master, when will the rest of the negative power on the Earth be completely erased?) When we all die, then it will be fine. Negative power is still in ourselves. It exists in humans and animals. It is locked in some before they are born. Both good and bad. So, take it easy. It has already decreased a lot. No additional power and pressure has been added on. For example, you are in a big lake, and you keep swimming. You have strength, of course, but you will get tired. If the water in the lake suddenly disappears, you won’t be excessively tired. You don’t have to swim and spend more energy in order to get out. Now the lake is dry. You can walk ashore freely, understand?(Second question. Does Earth then become the real Heaven?) I don’t know. When it comes, we will know. Why worry? I have already told you that I can’t tell fortunes. I don’t want to tell fortunes. You are already old, what are you afraid of? When your son grows up, he will tell you, if you are still alive.(Next question. I want to report an experience to Master. When the retreat started several days ago, Master came out to sit on the stage to give a lecture. I felt a bright light above my head and it made a blue opening. I want to ask Master if it means that my heavenly door is open?) Oh, it sounds like it. Did you go through it? OK, never mind. Having an experience is already great. Why bother asking questions, whether the heavenly door is open or not? It is open when you are initiated. This is one kind of experience. If you see a door, then go out to see what’s going on outside. Anything more? OK, read others.(Dear Master, in 2017, I meditated on a mountain in Qinghai province, China. The nine-month retreat was the happiest time of my life. Master continuously uplifts me. I had a special experience that I don’t quite understand. One night, I woke up at midnight, and I felt that I had become like air. So peaceful and tranquil. But everything in this world feels unrelated to me. I can’t even quite remember that there’s still “me.” I want to ask Master if this is the Original Self? Thank You, Master.)Is it? No, it’s just one kind of experience. Don’t grab on to it, OK? There are still many experiences that can’t be seen so soon. The Original Self is the Light. The Original Self is the inner Sound. That’s your Original Self. No face, no eyes. It’s just brightness and free-spirited (Inner Heavenly music.) You are just that. Next one.(Master, during Light meditation, I saw a small and bright light spot. But I saw other scenes at the same time. Should I focus on the light spot? Or should I do Light meditation normally, without focusing too much? Thank You, Master.) A bright, blue spot? How small? How small was it? (The little light spot was brighter, but tiny.) How tiny was it? (How big?) Like this? (It gradually zoomed out and became smaller. It’s big when it’s near.) (It became smaller when it was farther, and became bigger when it was closer.) Right, right! You focus on that, OK? At the center. (Thank You, Master.) Just focus on the center. For as long as you can. It will open up (Yes.) and then you can go through. There are higher realms beyond.(Last evening, I went to the Celestial Jewelry group to purchase Master’s latest jewelry design – the Elixir series bracelet. Without me asking, a sister came over to help me, so that I was able to make the purchase in the quickest way. I was very surprised, and as soon as I received the jewelry, that sister disappeared. Thank You, Master.)What are you laughing at? Why? (The manifestation body of Master helped her.) No. That sister really helped her. Good. You should thank her. (Because I had been thinking of buying that jewelry all the time, Master quickly sent this sister to me. She appeared very suddenly and then disappeared suddenly too.) I understand, OK. (Thank You, Master.) You are welcome. Have you got it? Oh! Beautiful.(I love the Celestial Jewelry designed by Master, and I always wear it at work. People around me are very happy. I feel this is all due to Master’s love and blessing power, which are spread out through us who are wearing it. I am extremely grateful to Master.) Some people see light emanating from people who are wearing the jewelry. (It’s really true. Many people feel “Wow!” because they are dazzled.) OK. (Thank You. There is another benefit in purchasing the Celestial Jewelry, which is to help us save money to do what we want to do the most. Thus, we won’t squander money. Thank You, Master.) You are welcome. The Celestial Jewelry is helpful somehow.(Dear Master, originally, my husband didn’t want me to come. Later, my son said, “Dad, please let mom go.” Master, my son has completely changed. He supported me to come to the retreat this time. I am grateful to Master’s blessing that has uplifted their souls. Thank You, Master.)You are welcome. Congratulations. Who told you to have a husband and son, and then be controlled by them. Even your son controls you. That’s what men do, always controlling the women near them. Strange! It’s always out of love that they come; too much love. Thank you.(On October 1st this year, I came to join the special event that Master held for the artist friends. After the event, I was dragging my luggage alone and was planning to take the bus, and then transfer to a train to go to the airport in Kaohsiung. Suddenly, a fellow initiate drove by and the initiate turned around, specifically for me, to give me a ride to the airport. Thank You, Master, for this arrangement. Also, when coming to this retreat, it was already eight in the evening when I arrived near the New Land, and I also got lost. Just at the time when I didn’t know what to do, a car drove by. I said hallo to him and told him that I was a disciple of Supreme Master Ching Hai. He then agreed to drive me to New Land, so that I could finish my arrival registration smoothly. Thank You, Master.)You are welcome. This is common. This is a common thing. When I get lost, I would also seek help from the neighbors, and they would show me the way home. They do it willingly and it is very typical. If I drive home alone, I’d definitely get lost, even in here.(I was being disturbed by invisible beings before the initiation. Thanks to Master’s blessing, the situation has been improving as I practice along. Yet, I also feel very bad when I see them suffering a lot. Master, please help liberate the invisible beings near me from the sea of suffering. Thank You, Master, for Your blessing.)They are your enemies or debtors. As you practice more, they will naturally be liberated. They may be your enemies, or relatives and friends. They are urging you to practice harder. Next one, please. Today, a lot of men are asking questions. That’s good. Usually, it seems you have no questions. Go on.(Master, sometimes I feel that a negative power is asking me to do something that I don’t want to do. Last year, a spiritual practitioner told me there’s a dark spirit like a bear on me. I met him when meditating on a mountain. Master, please enlighten me.)How do I enlighten you? He loves you and you should be happy. Just tell him to leave. If you don’t like him, just tell him: “Please! Let me practice spiritually.”(Master, can You please check whether he has left me or not?) I don’t see anything. How would they dare to come here to let me see them? If you still see him after you go home, that means he has not left. You tell him: “Let me be free. Master will help you. Stop harassing me. Otherwise, your karma will become worse.” Tell him in this way, OK? Do you see anyone near him? How would this type of invisible being dare to make trouble in our place here? When they can see that we have lots of strong women here, they wouldn’t even dare to look from afar, let alone come here to make trouble. If he comes here, we will take care of him.

Use Our Wisdom, Part 7 of 10

I said we have to make an excuse to go back to Taipei. One by one, we make friends with all these new people. Because the outsiders also, they are so very friendly but business-friendly. Also, they are happy that we are vegan also, ideal for them. They love the same ideal people, so they serve us, wow, special. Everything is so good, so good.I can’t stand the cold so I brought extra. But now there seems no need. It’s hot. We can have air con again! (Yeah!) I can talk again! Private stuff. Nowadays, it’s so convenient. OK, we meditate, and then at four o’clock, we go eat; and then at five o’clock, we go home; and at six o’clock, I go do my work. Is the food OK, guys? (Yes.) Now and then. Now and then is OK. At home, you eat better, for sure; don’t care. (Yes.) Now and then is OK. I have to eat that every day, so you cannot complain. You eat only once in a while. You come see Master for two days, three days. Even if it’s no good, you don’t complain. (Yes.) Because if you complain, I would think I should also. I’ll write a letter: “Every day, same food, my God! Every day similar food.” In…they cook better, more variety. Sometimes they have Spanish food; sometimes they have vegan curry, real Indian curry, cook vegan samosas. Sometimes we have vegan spring rolls, Aulacese (Vietnamese), real. Sometimes we have real this, real that. Sometimes we have real vegan sandwiches, do-it-yourself. (You make us hungry.) You’re hungry now? (After You describe it so good.) Oh, yeah? I am very good at describing. (Yes, yes.) That’s the only thing I’m good at, especially when I don’t have them. I do it especially, so that they feel bad that they don’t give me anything.When I was in Taipei… You know Taipei is a very good city for vegan food. I went to Taipei one time, for some reason, I forgot; of course, I go here and there sometimes. Ah, yeah. I know what. I went to the mountain to do a retreat. And then after the retreat, I said, “Oh, I feel like eating something. I don’t feel like going home, eating the same stuff yet, so let’s go treat ourselves to something. Look on the internet to see where, what. OK?” And then we went. They said nearby, otherwise, we’d have to take too long to drive. Nearby, there’s an Aulacese (Vietnamese) restaurant – not our disciples, not our initiates who made it, outside people. It was so good, so good! Even just a simple (vegan) noodle tasted so good. And that (vegan) sandwich they made, Aulacese (Vietnamese) Aulacese (Vietnamese) (vegan) bread, oh, my God, a long time, I didn’t have. Long time, I don’t know how many years or decades or centuries since I’d had this good food. So, I ate, ate, ate. And one of the drivers, he is specialized in eating. Whatever you put in front of him, no matter how much, he would finish it all for you. So, I said, “Wow! We should do this every day.” The way he ate made me hungry, eat more, enjoy. And I said, “I feel sorry for myself. Now we’ll go home and eat the same stuff again, almost the same every day.” Because they buy in a chunk. They buy big, so that it’s cheaper. So, they probably buy 100 watermelons, so we have to eat that for one month, for example. Cheaper, you know? Wholesale. Or 2000 kilograms of potatoes, then we have to eat that for another two months. It’s cheap. At least it’s clean water over there. And they buy big chunk, big boxes of cabbages, and then we have to demolish it in two, three months, or maybe one month minimum. And so on and so forth.So, I don’t even need to have magic power or go to the kitchen to check. I know what’s going to be on my table tonight. So, I said, “No, let’s go eat something good.” So, we went to eat that Aulacese (Vietnamese) food. So good, so good. And I said, “Is there some other food like this, similar foreigner food?” They said, “Oh, many, Master. We have even Mexican vegan.” Oh, to the “Mexi-mum.” “Mexi-mum” tortillas, “Mexi-mum” what? Tell me. ((Vegan) Tamales.) (Vegan) burrito in “Mexi-mal.” And then they even have an Italian restaurant, and Thai vegan, and Italian vegan, Mexican vegan. I said, “Wow! What am I doing in the New Land? These are all my faves!” Indian vegan and Mexican – oh, these are all my faves, all this lifetime, years. The problem is I have been around. I’ve traveled a lot before, even during marriage time, so I have tasted all kinds of good food. And now… stuck here.I really felt sorry for myself that day. I said we have to make an excuse to go back to Taipei. One by one, we make friends with all these new people. Because the outsiders also, they are so very friendly but business-friendly. Also, they are happy that we are vegan also, ideal for them. They love the same ideal people, so they serve us, wow, special. Everything is so good, so good. Because they know we are vegan. We said, “We are vegan, so make sure everything is vegan.” “Yeah, we have only vegan here.” Wonderful. No need to worry.The attendant brings food for me every day. Normally, they put it out there and then whenever I feel the time, I come out and get it and bring it to my table. So yesterday, I said, “I am sure it’s the same again like yesterday, right?” He said, “More or less, Master. Except the potato is boiled instead of fried,” or whatever, instead of boiled. Boiled whole instead of boil chopped. I said to him, “Hey, you think you miss …food or not? It’s better than here, right?” He said, “Yeah, yeah. A little bit more variety.” I said, “If you miss the food, you go, man. Go there to eat.” He said, “No, Master. It’s OK. You are here, I am here. I won’t go just for food.” I said, “Really? Wow, that’s touchy-feely. Oh, good, good, good.” I said, “Yeah, of course, if I can eat, you can, right?” He said, “OK, no problem.” He said, “Oh, for me, no problem.” For him. He said, “It doesn’t matter.” Meaning, it doesn’t matter, it’s equal to him. I don’t think he tells 100% truth, but it’s OK. He didn’t want to make me feel bad. I think I should move to Taipei. Why should I stay here? I can move all of you also. We’ll rent a hotel or something. You pay, I eat. (I invite You!) Yeah! (OK!) We are not many. We are about 100 people sometimes. We can book one whole hotel all year round. And today we go to Indian, tomorrow we go to Mexican, next day Italian, and the other day Aulacese (Vietnamese), and the other – Korean even! They have Korean vegan. Oh, all kinds!And other days, Sunday we go – we go where? Thai vegan. Wow! You’re right, I am hungry too. (Then You’ll make me into the real Happy Buddha.) It has an effect, I am telling you. You are happy already, no need to make exaggeration. We’re happy to see you like that already. No need to please us any further. We wish you to develop but not exaggerate, because then we have to carry you. We have to wheel you in the hall. We have some wheelchairs. Can do. I wheel my food because they put it on the tray, and then I put it on the wheeling table, because I cannot carry all that. Actually, they give a lot; the portion is a lot. Just that this is for a public kitchen. I sometimes cannot eat, so I return almost the same. I do think of these Aulacese (Vietnamese), and Mexican, and Korean, and Italian, and whatnot. What else? Thai and Indian. Oh, all kinds of my favorites! My God!The lucky Taipei people. And even then, not all of them are vegetarian or vegan. Shame! Don’t you think so? (Yes.) Shame on you, Taipei people. You should be vegan. It’s so convenient! I wish I could exchange places with them. Then I do nothing ‒ don’t have to be Master, don’t have to sit here, drooling about all kinds of food. Of course, they have Chinese vegan restaurants also. And to eat outside in an ordinary restaurant is a treat, I’m telling you.I don’t go to Loving Hut so often. Only once every two years, maybe. And (only) if I have to. Because if I go there, it’s work. It’s work to go to Loving Hut restaurants, my own Loving Hut restaurant to eat. I could even get overly praised, overly kneeled on the floor, and just making people look at me like weird stuff. “Why is She making people kneel?” I don’t make anybody kneel. They come, “Oh, Master!” Just come out of the kitchen, “Oh, Master!” and then on the floor. I feel sorry for the floor. Just drop like that, so heavy. One-hundred-pound person drops like that, or more even, sometimes 200 pounds, depends. Happy Buddhas. Happy lady Buddhas. And, OK, that’s not all. Everybody comes to put their head over my (vegan) soup. On my table, my food is here, “Master, bless me! Please!” Surely my soup won’t taste the same. Now you laugh? Why did it take so long? Translation. Wait until the Korean and Aulacese (Vietnamese) laugh, then we’re finished. You’ve finished laughing? There is more to come, but I forgot.They treat you equally. They don’t come and make trouble. Some know it, but they just say, and then I know. Then I don’t say anything. I pretend they don’t know, and they pretend they don’t know me, until I pay. After I pay, they say, “Where do You live?” “Are You the...?” I say, “Look the same, look similar, right?” They say, “You are not?” If I say I am, they don’t believe it. “You? Really? You? Yourself? It’s You? Your very self?” I say, “Yeah. You asked me, so I have to say the truth.” “Oh! Photograph, please!” And then the whole restaurant comes out. Well, at least they wait until I’ve enjoyed my dinner, and don’t put their head over my soup, or my salad, or whatnot. Sometimes they don’t know until the end. Somehow, they find out. When I come to pay and then they look close up. “Huh? Uh… Eeh…” So funny. Couldn’t speak, just, “Ah... eh... em... ah… You are Supreme Master Ching Hai, right? A vegetarian, right?”First, they say, “You are vegetarian, right? You’re vegan, right?” And I say, “Yes.” “Ah, yes, I know. You, Supreme Master Ching Hai, right? Yes or no?” And then if I… I cannot say no, and I say, “Yes,” and then they ask again and again and again. “Really? It’s You? Yourself? Supreme Master Ching Hai self?” So I say to the assistant, “Tell her.” I’m embarrassed, man. I cannot just say, “Here! Me! Gorilla coming.” Keep asking ten times, I’m embarrassed. Everybody is looking and listening now. The whole restaurant knows. Before, they didn’t notice; they kept eating their own noodles, minding their own salad. Until they all make a big deal and take photos and whatnot, and then the whole restaurant begins.

Să ne exprimăm pe noi înşine prin limba universală, partea 2 din 7

Dacă înţelegeţi această limbă universală, puteţi traduce toate comorile frumoase, literatura frumoasă, toate lucrurile pe care vreţi să le spuneţi despre ţara voastră, le puteţi scrie în engleză, şi înreaga lume o să afle despre ele. De exemplu, dacă engleza este oficială, întreaga lume o să afle despre ele.

Povestiri budiste: Pustnicul gol Pathika, partea 4 din 4

Eu v-am spus, la munte, chiar şi iarna, eu meditez sub rouă, sub lumină, sub vânt. Uneori este o ploaie uşoară şi am o umbrelă. Agăţ umbrela de o cracă aproape de mine şi mă acoperă, şi eu continui să meditez. Şi nu am răcit niciodată în toate aceste ... În aceşti doi ani când nu v-am văzut, bine?

Cunoaşteţi-vă prin setea conştiincioasă , partea 3 din 7

Este karma ta fixă. Dacă trebuie să fii acolo, trebuie să fii acolo. Dacă trebuie să ai copii, trebuie să ai copii. Nici măcar Maestrul nu o poate evita. Să-ţi aduci aminte de Sinele tău, asta este tot. Este tot ce putem face.

Deci, practica din afară nu este mereu ideală. Trebuie să renunţi în interior, să renunţi cu adevărat. Dacă ai sau nu ai este la fel pentru tine, atunci este renunţarea adevărată, înţelegeţi?

Povestiri budiste: povestea lui Magha, partea 6 din 10

Deci, după ce a atins un stadiu demn de laudă, Magha, după ce a ajuns la finalul vieţii care i-a fost dată, a fost renăscut în lumea celor 33 ca Sakra, regele zeilor. Prietenii săi la fel, au fost renăscuţi acolo. Constructorul a fost renăscut ca zeul Vishvakarman.
