Faith Is the Mother of All Virtues, Part 4 of 7

Of course, I knew that they had to practice, but that film made me realize it deeper, their talent and their hard work behind their fame, behind the enjoyment that they offer to us. And I really feel so much, so much respect and sympathy for the artists of all kinds, not just her.Anyway, so I went to this multi-millionaire, billionaire or something... Must be a bi

Faith Is the Mother of All Virtues, Part 3 of 7

And I ran so fast, as fast as I could out of that circle of disciples, with big luggage and big hair booboo, and all kinds of people. All right, I ran out. Oh, and then, “Kaboom, ka-chat, kaboom, ka-pow!” It stopped one hundred thousand times on the highway.One, two, three, four. Four. How do you say “five” in Iranian? (Five (Panj).) Five (Panj). Oh! That's it! That's it! Four for the American, Five (Panj) for the Iranian. And this is all for Master. Eat some. (Thank You, Master.) So, I went to eat in a Thai restaurant. I went with a hotel bus, small bus. So, because it was a festival going on, so I was trying to discuss… I stepped out of the bus already, the minivan. I was trying to discuss with the driver, because he asked me if he should come back to get me or not. In the hotel, they have this service. Of course, you give a generous tip to the driver. It is not included, but you give. They all love to drive me around. Whoever drove that day, they love, always volunteer, “Me, me! Me too!” So, he was asking what time he should come back to get me. Because that day was too busy, a taxi would not be able to go in there. He had a special hotel car and the design, so he could go in to some crowded or special area. The streets are very small there. So, I said, “I don’t really know. Maybe two hours or something, I’ll finish eating.” We were talking a little bit, and the rich man, he sat next to the table, next to that street where I was talking, and he kept banging on the plastic sheet. It was summer. It was not quite summer, but they put an extra room outside with a plastic sheet, because it was not allowed to build. But inside is a building, a real restaurant, but outside the corridor, they put plastic to cover. And he kept knocking on it because the car kept the engine on. I think he just wanted to say, “Get lost.” So, I told him, “Never mind, I’ll get the taxi. I’ll go back by taxi, don’t worry.” So, I let the driver go home, because I didn’t want to talk further. Anyway, he tried to give me a phone number and whom to call. In case he was not there, I’d call whom, whatever, and then he would come and get me. So, I gave him a tip and let him go back to the hotel. And when I came in, of course, I ordered my food and ate and all that.And then they started talking across the table to me. And he invited me to the yacht, like how I said. His girlfriend told me. They sat together. I don’t know why he had to talk through the girlfriend. Maybe it’s a man’s courtesy, men’s stuff. Otherwise, you might have trouble. Maybe discuss first with the girlfriend, whether or not I’m entitled to go on the yacht. So, she said, “He invites You to the yacht.” I said, “Oh, really! He has a restaurant? Or is there a restaurant on the yacht somewhere?” She said, “No, no. It’s his own yacht, private. He wants to invite You to his yacht.” I said, “Oh, nice! OK!” So, we made a time. And I went there and all that. The yacht harbor is very small. Monaco, it’s priceless already, and he could even park his yacht there permanently. On top of that, he had a car parked right in front of his yacht. The street on the harbor between the yacht is precious already, and he could do that. So, you knew how much money he had. Never mind. It’s not our main point. I’m just trying to tell you that it’s funny. That in Monaco, everybody, whoever’s powerful and rich, is in Monaco. Even his girlfriend told me that immediately, at the start already. Because he invited me to his yacht, not her yacht of course; just maybe a girlfriend or secretary, I don’t know. At that time, I didn’t know, I didn’t care. And they were together, big table with many other friends, so I thought it was safe. I don’t doubt anybody, especially in Monaco. So, I said, “Oh, nice. OK. Where?” and all that, and he told me where. And then we got talking. I said, “Are you tourists?” I was stupid. Always stupid. At that time, I even didn’t know that people who had a yacht, how could they be tourists? So, she told me, “No, we live here. We are rich and powerful.” I said, “I reckoned so. Pardon me for questioning.” “So, he invites You to his yacht.” I said, “OK.” And then we kept talking and we shared the food and all that. So, I know them from then.And he also had a big apartment, in one of the apartment complexes in Monaco, on the beach. Most of them are on the beach. The rich people, they live only near the beach, next to the beach. My hotel was also on the beach, except it was not mine. My room, my rented room. But of course, I dressed nicely. In Monaco, you cannot dress badly, the police will talk to you. They’ll think, “What business are you doing in our paradise?” Maybe a thief or something. In Monaco, it’s very strict. If you go with a motorcycle, they stop you ten thousand times, from one step to another, always stopping you. Even doctors, they also go by motorcycle. I know that because one of my doctors… At that time, I was very sick. At one time, not that time, maybe not that time, I was very sick. That’s why I went to that beach hotel. Because last time when I was sick, I coughed for two months long and went there. I just kept drinking juice every day and then I got cured very quickly, immediately after one week or ten days. Two months long coughing, I was exhausted, so I went there. I thought the air would be good for me. Another time, not that time. I can’t remember which time anymore; I come and go. Sometimes I came from France. I don’t necessarily stay in Monaco to go to that Monaco Thai restaurant. I can’t remember if I came from SMC or Italy somewhere. I go around all the time for different reasons. So, they said they’re not tourists and he parked. And so, the day I went to his yacht, of course, she was there too and I think maybe a couple of friends, or not, I forget. But the yachts, they are packed with each other, it’s safe anyway. You are amongst the yachts and the people all the time. It’s a harbor. That busy. So, I saw his, I saw the car, an Excalibur car. They don’t make them anymore.I bought one when I was in America, just to drive around, because I like the design so much and it’s so cheap. It was secondhand, but it was only 1,000 miles or something, because the owner was an old man; he didn’t drive too much. Not even 1,000 miles, some hundreds of miles. So, it was very cheap. So, I bought it and drove it, but it was very bumpy; it was like driving a horse. Oh, my God! It looked beautiful, but it was like a Corvette. It was like a sports car; it was not very comfortable. So, even a Porsche and all that, they’re not comfortable because the seats are so low. I didn’t own any Porsche, but I was driven in one, an acquaintance or a friend’s Porsche, and my God, it hurts your bum so much, especially if they go on highways, high speed. They love this car, because it’s like a sports car. And they can drive fast, because the seat is very low and the car is also low, so they can go fast, fast. But the seat is so hard, not even like upholstered or anything. Why do they like this kind of car?And also, there’s another car, they induced me to buy. I dressed so nice or something, or I looked rich, I don’t know. I didn’t wear any jewelry or anything. I just dressed like anybody. For example, this is just a normal dress. There’s nothing posh about it. Just a summer dress, a long dress, but you said I look good. Fine, I understand, I believe you, but it’s nothing special. I bought it in a Hong Kong open market. The flea markets? And this is just a scarf, that SM Clothes just cut it and then sewed the four sides and then it becomes a scarf. Nothing really special. So, I dressed normal and they thought I was rich. They kept telling me to buy these big cars, those more expensive cars... like what? I forgot the name. I don’t use it often, that’s why. Oh, tell me. You, the men should know. (Rolls Royce.) Rolls Royce is one. (Bentley.) Bentley is another. Italian… (Maserati.) And what else? (Lamborghini.) Lamborghini! Yeah. Oh man! I said, “I don’t want this car. I don’t drive very well. I just want some simple one.” But I liked the design because I didn’t see that anywhere before. I have never seen it, so I thought, “Whoa, it’s nice.” I’m a designer; this ticked me, so I ticked it. And then I wanted it, and then they kept inviting me to buy other cars, forcing me to sit. “Just sit. Sit on it, have a feel of it, and then tell me.” Typical salesmen. I said, “I don’t want to sit! I just want to buy this car and go home to my dogs.” “Oh, just sit, man. One minute, half a minute, it costs You nothing.” Kept saying, so I had to sit in one car, and then they moved me to another car to sit, and Lamborghini, whatever! Oh, it was so low. And I’m already very short. I sat in the car; I saw nothing! If you don’t believe me, you sit in a Lamborghini, you will have a feel of it. I said, “I feel nothing! I see nothing! How am I going to even drive this thing?” And they said, “You have a cushion.” Oh, no, no! I said, “No, it’s OK. Please don’t make trouble for yourself. I don’t fancy this car.” Very difficult to move myself from an immobile car. They just sat me there, and closed the door, and just stood outside, kept talking to me with a half open window. I could not even escape! I’m telling you, these salesmen, they are really special. So, I bought that secondhand Excalibur. They are a collection. I didn’t know much about “collection” or “not collection,” nothing. I know zero about cars. I just liked that car. And it was cheap, available, quick. So, I bought it. Anyway, afterward, I felt like driving this car was more difficult than buying it.And then it stopped right in the middle of the highway the first time I drove home. Oh, my God, it was a scare. Lucky there were no cars at that time. So, I was trying so hard to inch my way into the grass area and blink the warning light crazily. I was worried the truck, or any that drove only long trucks... You know in America, they have long, big trucks, and when they drive, they don’t care about anything. They have lights everywhere. You should see them, but they don’t see you. They blink lights all over the body of the car. You know that? (Yes.) On the tail, and the head, and along both sides, so people have to see them. But I wonder if they even see any people? They’re so big, and so tall, and so massive. I was so scared. I was all alone. I didn’t have any boy or anything, no muscle around to help me, nothing. Or to wave the flag, saying, “Stop!” or “Pay attention to the kaput car!” The reason I didn’t know was because there’s a clock to measure the fuel and it said full! But it didn’t have any, maybe only a quarter or something. I drove onto the highway and then it just stopped, right in the middle of it. Oh man! OK, I’m still here, so you know it was OK, but for me, it was really a scare, especially for a best-top-world-driver like myself. Terrible! Already, new car, lousy driver, and stopped on the highway! Imagine? Imagine if it’s you. No, don’t have to. You know it.There’s another time of scare of my life because in Slovenia, I also drove the stick shift first time ever in my life, with the two-second instruction from some of the rental guys, because he was busy. He might have had to go home, his daughter’s birthday, could not talk anymore. Pay and take it, or not! That was the only car available! And all the disciples from all the directions coming towards me already. At that time, I could not go with anybody; it had to be alone. So, I ran with the car. I wanted to run, but the car didn’t really want to run too much. I tried so hard. And then finally, the car started and everybody came shouting, “Master! We have a car here for You. Come! Come with us!” That’s the thing I didn’t want. Everybody was shouting. And I ran so fast, as fast as I could out of that circle of disciples, with big luggage and big hair booboo, and all kinds of people. All right, I ran out. Oh, and then, “Kaboom, ka-chat, kaboom, ka-pow!” It stopped one hundred thousand times on the highway. Anytime! Anytime I put my foot on the wrong pedal, or had to stop because of, I don’t know, whatever red light or green light, then it stopped altogether. And I had to try very hard to figure out how to start it again. Oh my God. And it did start! And I did go to a hotel, the nearest possible I saw. I said, “That’s it, no more!” And I called the man standing in front, “Please come! Drive my car in your… Please, quickly!” He said, “You drive in here.” I said, “No, you drive!” I was outside of the driveway, shouting at the top of my lungs, “You come out here! Drive my car!” He was helpless. He didn’t know what was going on, why he had to go out on the driveway. He’s a doorman, he should stay there, open the door only, expecting tips. That’s all his job is. Why he had to go out and drive my car? Why I’m there already in the driver’s seat and I had to shout at him, tell him to go out? I said, “Please come out!” And then I kept waving like a lunatic, and he finally understood (in Italian) or he was curious, he came out and had a look, “What’s wrong with this lady?” So, he came out and I said, “Please, I am exhausted. I’m worried I might bump into your plants or your beautiful flowers around here. Please drive it. I’m very tired.” So, he said, “OK, OK, OK, Ma’am, You go in. I’ll take You in and I’ll drive Your car in for You.” So, he saw my face, so desperate; no need to explain anymore. And he helped me, almost like carrying me like a baby – held my hands, my arms, both arms, and then almost like carrying me, because I was like dragging myself. After all the nerve-racking on the highway and stopping one hundred thousand times, what do you think I would look like? And then finally, I went in the reception area, I just flopped down there. And then he understood. And then he went out, took all my luggage inside, helped me to fill in the form, everything. He was probably thinking I was dying somehow. Are you crying? Why? (I’m just too happy.) You’re so happy? (No, I’m…) I almost died over there in Slovenia and you are happy? I was dying on the highway almost, on American highway, and you’re happy? Thank you! What good disciples are for? Never mind. I’m just joking. You cry as much as you want. I cried enough already; I don’t cry anymore now.I risked my life so many times. I went alone, all the way, on the European tour. All alone, carrying luggage, and heavy, up the steps, and everything, alone. I could have taken a lot of people or even people on the road, meeting in the airport and all that. I could not; I just didn’t want to see anyone. But luckily, everything was OK. I put on these flashing lights, emergency lights. No exits! Emergency light, (Hazard.) all the way. (Hazard light.) Hazard light, blinking both sides. And the front light, back light, whatever light I could turn on, I turned them all on. Everybody passing me and “Hallo?” I said, “Yeah, hallo!” “Please, I’m sorry! Sorry, sorry!” I kept saying “sorry” all the time to all the cars that passed me. “Sorry, sorry!” And then they were all laughing and smiling, very sympathetically or something, I don’t know. I had no chance to even look closer. I just said “Sorry, sorry” and then I ran with the car.Why did I talk about that? OK. Excalibur. So that’s the first time or second time I risked myself on the “unknown car.” The Excalibur, I bought it. So, it’s in America. I sold it already anyway. But it was so beautiful; it was the most beautiful Excalibur. Because there are many Excaliburs, but it was not that one. That one was like a light cream outside, and inside, a darker cream seat. Everything was just so perfect – very light, not showy but extremely making a statement. I loved it so much. And there are other Excaliburs, but sometimes they mix-match, like in front is black, behind is brown, or in the middle is blue or white, whatever. It doesn’t look smooth to your eyes. I just liked that one. I saw many afterwards – not that many, because they have maybe only 200 cars of that type and then they did not make any more for some reason. I did not research. My car was about the 30th car, a collection, meaning rare item, like antique stuff for collectors, not like a common car for sale. So, I saw some of them before. They were also Excalibur, same style, but because the colors didn’t match well. It’s not artistic looking, and not so sleek, and not so elegant. Oh, I loved that car so much.

I love that so much about India. No matter how many religions have taken root in India, the Indian people, inside, they are always the same. They just love God, in whatever name you call Hirm. They’re just religious, whatever religion you want to call yourself.And in Monaco, they also recognize loyalty. The hotel where I stayed... Because when I first went t

Trebuie să mă lupt în fiecare zi să-mi aduc aminte că sunt aici doar pentru fiinţele ce suferă, indiferent dacă ştiu că este o iluzie sau nu. (Da. Vă mulţumesc, Maestră.) Mă închid pe mine, închid nişte uşi, închid o parte din cunoaştere, închid o parte din cunoaşterea profundă, ca să pot continua să fiu ca un om. ( Maestră, Dvs. sunteţi la un nivel spiritual aşa de

Deci, oamenii fac bine sau rău, aşa stau lucrurile. Nimeni nu le poate controla minţile sau să facă nimic, cu excepţia că ei înşişi se trezesc. (Da, Maestră.) Vor să se trezească. Se trezesc voluntar şi înţeleg cu adevărat despre ce este vorba, adică bunăvoinţă, compasiune, iubire binevoitoare şi protectoare faţă de celelalte fiinţe mai slabe şi neajutorate, cum ar fi animalele.

Eu sunt ca un ghid care le spune: „Calea aceasta este rea. Mergeţi în direcţia aceasta.” Dar dacă ei continuă să meargă aşa, atunci ei vor da de sfârşitul lor. Nu mai pot face nimic.

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.)

Buddhist Stories: The Land of Amitabha Buddha, Part 6 of 7

And the Original Tim is… cannot describe. Too much Light, too bright, too radiant, too glorious, too everything. So, but the Tim in the Original World is doing the Original work. The Tim from different levels is doing different work, the same Tim. Same Tim, but different power, different function, different blessing. Same, same one.In that sutra, He taught how to practice as well. Here, He just described the land and the merits, but in that prison, He told her how to imagine. He described it all and then He said, "You have to imagine and fix your mind on that, with the name of Amitabha Buddha. Do it day and night as much as you can. Then when you die, you will be born in that land." That's another occasion of the Amitabha Sutra, a little different, with the advice of how to practice. Just concentrate, and imagine. Remember all those things that He describes and fix your mind on it, in detail, and remember the name of Buddha, then you'll be born there. Or you could even visit there, He said, while alive, something like that. So, plan B, plan B? (We prefer plan A.) What, love? (We prefer Yours.) Prefer plan A? It doesn't matter, as long as you're free. Wherever you're born, as long as you're free and you continue your freedom searching, then it's fine with me, OK.I just read it to you, because it's interesting to know about other lands, other Masters, other Buddhas. It's good to… because you still have to live in the shadow world. You can't follow me later on, but I will be there also; doesn't mean I'm here, it doesn't mean I'm only here. Because the soul can stretch infinitely, so the Tim Qo Tu is enjoying up there while I'm toiling down here. A part of it. Like a string like this, and at the end is a microphone. And the other end is a zig and zag and plug and… you see what I mean? (Yes.) It's the same line, OK? If Tim Qo Tu was to be only in the Original Universe after He or She re-found it, then the job here cannot be taken care of. It's too far, too separated, too different, much too different between the shadow and the real. And also She/He, Tim cannot go to, to hell sometimes, if necessary, to fish out some difficult fish, OK? The fish that Jesus mentioned, I'll teach you how to fish humans. That is the fish I'm talking about. So she here, the Tim that's in the world is acting as the human connection, so the humans can see and hear and benefit. The other parts of Tim are all over in the universe; remember the string, the whole string of the universe. So the Tim in the Astral World is different, the Tim in Second World different, the Tim — the same, same! It's just not so bound like here, not so difficult to work. Even in the Astral World, people are already very easy to teach. In the Second World, Third World, not to mention Fourth, Fifth. But if you see Tim in the Astral World, you'll fall in love already. Not to talk about the Second-World Tim, or Third-World Tim, or Fourth or Fifth.The human Tim looks like a human, looks like, behaves like a human, has also power, but in this world has to connect with the higher Tim, so that slowly extends the power here, gradually. Number one, because the human Tim's body is not as the body of the Astral Tim, you see, it has to go all the way from the Original Tim, all the way down slowly, more power, a little less, a little less, a little less, a little less, a little less power until the human world. Because if it comes all the way from the Original Tim immediately, then this world would be destroyed immediately. It cannot survive that power. So the human Tim is necessary, to re-digest and re-relocate it, to suit the humans' capacity of receiving and digesting. That's why it takes so long. And the human Tim can receive the power also gradually, cannot do it all at once, either. So we may be able to say that the human Tim doesn't contain as much power as the Original Tim, but it's because this world is like that. Even if the human Tim contains all the power of the Original Tim, then the world cannot also receive it, cannot digest it, cannot perceive it, cannot receive it, cannot be all given out. It's too much, too much. The human body, the human mind cannot bear it, and the whole planet, trees, plants, everything. So have to do slowly. So the human Tim looks like a normal person, but inside has more power than a normal person. But even then, they must train, slowly, slowly for the cells and the mind to be ready for all that, also. It takes a long time, many years, many, ten years already. The Astral Tim is even more beautiful already. And the higher they go, the more glorious, the more beautiful the Tim. And the Original Tim is… cannot describe. Too much Light, too bright, too radiant, too glorious, too everything. So, but the Tim in the Original World is doing the Original work. The Tim from different levels is doing different work, the same Tim. Same Tim, but different power, different function, different blessing. Same, same one. If the world here was able to receive all the blessing, then the Tim would also bring it all down, the same. It just cannot. So no need, yes. Like if you need the small room only, you don't need such a big light, so you use just a small lamp. You don't need more, even though the electricity in your house is very strong, and can provide for many things, but you don't need it all for such a small room. Or if you just light the bed-light lamp, bed lamp, then you don't need a lot of electricity, it's a small bulb. Not because your electricity is not enough, there’s just no need.And every Tim has a different function in different worlds, but they're all connected. And this Tim can also manifest in different planets, not just one planet. Many planets, many cosmos, many planes of spiritual existence, and looks alike, or may not look alike; it depends. If that planet has people with two noses, then Tim over there will have two noses, too. Otherwise, they’d think, "Who are you?" So, it depends on the beings. And if the planet there has people with such-and-such a temperament, then the Tim has to also adapt to that, to help them accordingly. Cannot be too good, and cannot be too bad; has to be almost look-alike, apparently, looks similar to the beings of that planet, so that they trust, you're one of us, you are us. If I came here with two noses, what do you think? For example. Or the wisdom eye is very obvious right here, what do you think? You and your children will be scared: "Oh! Monster!" Yes, it's too different, too much. So have to be similar.I don't know, anything else you want to know about Buddha or Tim? Tim Qo Tu, it sounds so… Too friendly, too "the boy next door," you know what I mean, too much. Even many movie stars, they changed their names. Like Marilyn Monroe, she wasn't Marilyn Monroe, she was just like Jean, Jean what? (Norma Jean.) “Normal” Jean, yeah! Very normal. But changed it to Marilyn Monroe, wow! It sounds glamorous, already. So I think I’ll change Tim Qo Tu into something like, I don't know, I'll think about it. Artistic name, like pen name, or movie star name.Yes, ma'am. (I read a book, and it described a universe, like a central paradise, with several, like seven paradises around it, and there is a big photon belt around this paradise.) A big what, love, belt? (Gravitation belt.) Gravitation belt, yeah. (This book reveals like many things, and like there are seven big universes, super universes around the central paradise.) Yeah, yeah. (And I was wondering if this was the central paradise, something like the Original Universe. Is that? Or…) No, no. (just the description of the Second World?) No, if anybody from this planet can know about it, except Tim, then He is not from Original Universe, understand? Yeah. But it is one of, like, Buddha's Land. He also surrounded it with seven this, seven that, similar like that. (Because there is the description that our universe is in one of these super universes.) Yours? (Yes, we are like in the…) Yeah. (They are divided in many sections.) Yeah, yeah. But that universe, that's better than this universe. That land is better than our land. It could be in the same universe; it's just a different level of consciousness. (So is this… which level of consciousness does it belong to? Is it like the Second Level or…) That one? Just give me a name. (Ah, like, we don't have a… The central paradise is named "Havona.") Hahona. (Havona.) Havona. Sounds already better than Tim. Sounds more paradise-like. Like those science fiction stuff, they know even better names. Third Level. OK. Not many people can reach the Fifth Level already, so… mostly things that they see or describe are either Astral, Second or Third Level, or Fourth Level, maximum. Anymore questions? Yeah, here. (Master, I just want to say thank You for never giving up on us.) You're welcome! (Sometimes, I mean when I hear some of those things You tell, even here, about the people who do something really not right, but You still help them. You still help them even directly now or maybe in the case of people that they go thinking about things, You will help them anytime that someone asks.) Of course. (I know that from my own experience. And even when I don't have faith in myself, if I pray, I feel Your faith in me. So that's just an unbelievable gift, and You do that for everyone, everything, every being. So thank You.) Of course, madam, of course. Even if I throw them out, don't think I left them. No. It’s just one of the 84,000 means to teach the sentient beings, according to Buddha. A Master is not always being nice. You like sweetness, but it's bad for your teeth. Sugar, (vegan) candies, (vegan) cakes, (vegan) sweets, but it's not always good for us. Same, same with treatment from the Master. Jesus had to go into the temple and throw out and scold all these money mongers in there. And many other things, OK. Buddha also. It doesn't matter, I just do my job. I don't leave anyone, they just left me. And then I wait. Then I wait until their heart comes back, not their body comes back, their heart. Sentient beings are very difficult, very difficult. Each one is more difficult than the next. So different ways, OK? No problem, no problem. Even the parents they don't leave their children, so how could a spiritual Master leave anyone? It's normal, OK? It's normal. Just have to do it in different ways, different person, treat differently. Sometimes two people ask the same question, but I answer differently or treat them differently. Two persons do the same thing, but get different treatment, because of the inside. It's not the outside action or question, OK. Love you. You look so humble.

Buddhist Stories: The Land of Amitabha Buddha, Part 4 of 7

"The (inner Heavenly) Light of this Buddha is infinite, and shines on all lands throughout the universe without obstruction. Thus, this Buddha is called Amitabha," it means "Limitless Light," also meaning "Limitless life span," He lives forever. Amitabha Sutra. Amitabha, A-M-I-T-A-B-H-A, Ami-ta-bha. "Thus I have heard: Once, Buddha was in the land of Sravasti, in the garden of Jeta and Anathapindika. He was accompanied by 1,250 great Bhiksus, and all of them great Arhats, well known to the assembly. Among them were His leading disciples, such figures as the Elders Sariputra, Maudgalyayana, Mahakasyapa, Mahakatyayana, and Mahakausthila."Now you know why I can't remember the names. "Revata, Suddhipanthaka, Nanda, and then Ananda, Rahula," His son, His biological son. "Gavampati, Pindola Bharadvaja, Kalodayin, Mahakapphina, Vakkula, and Aniruddha, all great disciples. Also present were the Bodhisattvas Mahasattva, like Manjusri, Prince of the Dharma, wisdom, the Bodhisattva Ajita, the Invincible, and the Bodhisattva of Constant Progress, Gandhahastin, Nityodyukta, and other such great enlightened beings. Also present was Sakra, the king of the gods."He followed Buddha everywhere before He became Buddha, and now that the Buddha was there, he also came down. What are you doing here again? You want to make the Buddha suffer again? The king of the gods, Sakra, it may not be the same Sakra because even the king of gods, they change position. They die and somebody else takes their place. So the Kingdom of gods is sometimes up for grabs. If you're good enough, you just come up. Because the Sakra, maybe at that time his merits ran out, and then he had to go. And then the throne was empty. So whoever has enough merit just comes up, takes the place, so simple. "Sakra was there, the king of the gods, along with countless numbers of heavenly beings, making up a great assembly."I have to tell you that Sakra is the king of 33 Heavens only, the god of the gods of 33 Heavens in the Astral level. He's not the God of all the gods, like he's not the God Almighty and all that, so don't blame him for being so cruel and wicked, and testing the Buddha-to-be in such, many agonizing ways. He's not the Almighty God. He's not even the Second-level god. You never heard of him coming down and making trouble. And Brahma, you never see him making Buddha suffer. It's just the astral, similar to humans. If they're from the Astral Level, they do many naughty things, not very kind things, because they’re from the astral level or hell.“At that time, the Buddha said to the Elder Sariputra: ‘West of here, past a hundred-billion Buddha-lands, there exists a world called Ultimate Bliss. In this land, past a hundred-billion Buddha-lands, far away, there exists a Buddha called Amitabha who is expounding the Dharma right now.’ For His people in that land. Buddha said to Sariputra: ‘Why is this land called Ultimate Bliss? It is called Ultimate Bliss because the sentient beings in this land are free from the myriad sufferings, and only know every kind of joy. Furthermore, this land is called Ultimate Bliss because it is surrounded by seven rings of railings, and seven layers of nets, and seven rounds of trees, all made of the four precious jewels. Moreover, the Land of Ultimate Bliss has many jeweled ponds filled with the waters of eight virtues. The bottom of each of the ponds is pure golden sand, and the stepped walkways that lead up from all four sides of each of the ponds are made of gold, silver, lapis lazuli and crystal. Above the ponds there are many towers which are adorned with silver and gold and lapis lazuli and crystals, and mother of pearl and red agate. In the ponds there are lotus flowers as big as cart wheels: blue ones shining with blue light, yellow ones shining with yellow light, red ones shining with red light, and white ones shining with white light, each emitting a subtle pure fragrance. The Land of Ultimate Bliss is complete with all these merits and adornments. And there is more. Celestial music is constantly playing in this Buddha land, and the ground is made of gold. Flowers in the shape of heavenly orbs rain down at all hours of the day and night. Every morning the sentient beings of this land decorate their garments with multitudes of wondrous flowers.’” Ah, the flowers rain down so that they can decorate their garments."And make offerings to hundreds of billions of Buddhas in other worlds." So they take the flowers, they fly to billions of other Buddha-lands and make offerings. Can you imagine that? Without any airplanes, without a car, without pollution. Sounds similar to our land, except it's more wonderful and precious. "When it is mealtime, they return to their own lands, to eat and circumambulate the teaching assembly, all the Buddhas, the teachers. The Land of Ultimate Bliss is complete with all of these merits and adornments."In the Original Universe, we don't eat, we don't feel hungry. We have all kinds of fruits, all kinds of trees, all kinds of things, but nobody needs to eat anything. Too busy creating, enjoying, enjoying the creative power, and making things and then making it disappear or making it again, and blessing, enjoying also. And there is more still."The Land of Ultimate Bliss is complete with all of these merits and adornments." And there is more still. "In this land, there are birds of all sorts of wondrous variegated colors: white cranes, peacocks, orioles, myna birds, cuckoos. All these birds bring forth harmonious songs day and night. Their songs communicate such Buddhist teachings as the Five Roots, the Five Powers, the Seven Factors of Enlightenment, the Eightfold Path, as well as other teachings." Even birds, they're preaching in that land. "When the sentient beings in this land hear the voices of the birds, they are mindful of the Buddhas, mindful of the Dharma, and mindful of the sangha." The birds are reminding them.I’ll turn back this page here. "Do not think that these birds were born as birds due to karmic retribution or past misdeeds. Why not? Because in this Buddha land, the three evil planes of existence, as animals, hungry ghosts, and hell beings, do not exist. In this Buddha land, even the names of the evil planes of existence do not exist, much less the realities. All of these birds are the creations of Amitabha Buddha, fashioned in order to broadcast the sounds of the Dharma." Like radio, living radio, it's also a miracle."In this Buddha land, there is a slight breeze that stirs the rounds of jewel trees and jewel nets, so that they emit subtle wondrous sounds, like hundreds and thousands of melodies playing all at once. All those who hear these sounds spontaneously develop the intention to be mindful of the Buddha, the sangha and the Dharma. This Buddha land is complete with all of these merits and adornments. What do you think? Why is this Buddha called Amitabha? The (inner Heavenly) Light of this Buddha is infinite, and shines on all lands throughout the universe without obstruction. Thus, this Buddha is called Amitabha," it means "Limitless Light," also meaning "Limitless life span," He lives forever.Also, the lifespan… Now, look at that! "Also the lifespan of this Buddha and His people is an infinite number of immeasurable eons, and so He is called Amitabha." You live forever there. You’d like to go there? Can do, can do. "Amitabha Buddha attained enlightenment ten eons ago." That's not long. Normally, it's numerous asamkhyeya, eons and eons, eons. This is only ten eons, He's young! Young Buddha. "Moreover, this Buddha has innumerable disciples, all of whom are Arhats, and whose numbers are incalculable. Amitabha also has a following of innumerable Bodhisattvas."Crowded family. "The Land of Ultimate Bliss is complete with all of these merits and adornments. None of the sentient beings who are born in the Land of Ultimate Bliss ever fall back into a lower realm, meaning, they are avaivartika. Many among them have only one more lifetime to go, before enlightenment." So they're not complete, they're OK. Just that they're not like, enlightened. The Buddha just fetched them up, But it doesn't mean that they are enlightened, not very enlightened, perhaps not. Because they still eat. They adorn their garments with flowers and all that, sounds cute. As long as you can live forever and peacefully there, who cares? One more lifetime."These beings are very numerous, and their number is incalculable. When sentient beings hear of the Land of the Ultimate Bliss, they must take a vow to be born in this land. Why so? So that they can be together with all of these beings of superior goodness. One cannot be born in this land through minor good roots, or blessing, or virtues and causal connections." It means they have to be real good, real good. Passed all the exams, passed all the tests."If there are good men or good women who hear of Amitabha Buddha, and recite His name single-mindedly and without confusion, for one day or two days only, or three days or four days or five days or six days or seven days," from one day to seven days, then... "Then when these people are about to die, Amitabha Buddha and all the sages who are with Him will appear before them. When these people die, their minds will not fall into delusion, and they will attain rebirth in Amitabha Buddha's Land of Ultimate Bliss." If you don't like to study with me, there is a choice here. Backup, plan B. No problem! I'm not jealous. Otherwise, I wouldn't tell you. But you have to recite single-mindedly, not like you "Namo Amitabha, what?" "Amitabha who?" “Master, I concentrate…” "I have seen this benefit, and so I speak these words," it means Shakyamuni Buddha spoke these words truthfully."I have seen these benefits," He said, "so I speak these words. If sentient beings hear what I say, they must make a vow to be born in that land." He didn't even say, "Make me born into Shakyamuni Buddha Land." Maybe because Shakyamuni Buddha doesn't make a vow to take sentient beings up into His land, but Amitabha Buddha did, that's why. OK? And Shakyamuni, without jealousy, introduced His colleague. What I mean is the Buddha spoke the truth.That's why if you go to China or some Buddhist land or in Taiwan (Formosa) or in Âu Lạc (Vietnam), you heard people, they gather in the temple for one, or three-days or seven-days retreat, they just recite His name all day, and of course, meditate some also. But otherwise, they just recite His name. When I was younger, I sang this Amitabha Buddha song for you? Yes. At that time I could stretch my voice very long, remember? And very high. I cannot anymore. I can talk still, but I don't have such energy to sing like before, like at that time."Right now, I am extolling the benefits of the inconceivable merits of Amitabha Buddha. But in the eastern direction, there are also countless other Buddhas: the Akshobhya Buddha, and the Buddha Marks of the Polar Mountain, and the Buddha Great Polar Mountain, and the Buddha Light of the Polar Mountain, and the Buddha Wondrous Voice, etc. Each of them preaches in his own land with the eloquence of a Buddha, and covers a whole cosmos, speaking the Truth. All of you sentient beings should believe this scripture, extolling their inconceivable merits, and which all Buddhas protect and keep in mind." This secret, this merit, most Buddhas know about it and protect them.

Buddhist Stories: The Land of Amitabha Buddha, Part 3 of 7

Amitabha Buddha is especially very famous, sometimes more famous than Shakyamuni Buddha. Many, for example, in Taiwan (Formosa), when they do a retreat with any master, they just recite, "Namo Amitabha Buddha" all the time. (Master, can I tell about what I think was a miracle for me?) Yeah, OK, your horse? We all like to hear miracles. Please tell us. (Where I live is very remote, so I don't have any Internet. To use the Internet, I've got to go six kilometers, or 12 kilometers into town...) Join the club! (to use the library.) Yeah? (And so I didn't know that there was going to be a retreat here. And I found out when I drove down to Melbourne on the Friday, and one of my friends, I had dinner with him in a vegan restaurant, and he said, "Did you hear that they've got things happening?” And by that Monday...) Your friend, initiate or not? (Yes, he's an initiate. By Monday I was booked, and then I found out I couldn't go; it was canceled. And I didn't find out until eight o'clock of the day that I was flying that I could go, but I live a long way from the airport. The airport is like 400 kilometers away.)400 kilometers! Take you ten hours to drive there? (No, it took me... Probably I left at 9:30 in the morning, and I was on the flight... I was actually at the airport by about two o'clock in the afternoon.) You drove there? (I drove there.) God! (I drove to the airport. But it was amazing how it all happened, because I just jumped in the shower when I found out at eight o'clock in the morning. My sister started packing my bag for me. I was saying, "Put this in, put that in!" And then I got into the car at 9:30.) No time to lose, quickly!(I rang up my friend and said, "You have to feed my horses now." Because I made up 22 feeds before I left so that they had food. Because I make up special feeds for them.) How do you feed your horse? What...? (I feed them, they get chaff, so oaten chaff, loosened chaff. They get herbs, so they get nettle, and they get carrots and apples, and they get cleavers, which is like a sticky weed. It's a sticky weed, it's very nutritious. It's a weed, people consider it a weed, but actually weeds are quite nutritious. They get that. They get seaweed meal. They get dolomite.)Quite a meal ― nutritious! (They get dolomite, which is a... Because Australia is an old continent, the top soil has been blown away, and all the good stuff is not there anymore to grow the food, so it's replaced with this dolomite. So they get a pinch of that every day as well. So, I made up 22 of these big bags before I left.) Leave it there for your sister. (Yes. But to me it was just a miracle and I thought, "This is just amazing!" Because in a week, here I am on my way, and I just thought, "Why wouldn't I be so driven to go?" Because to me it was like I was going to see the most beautiful entity in the whole universe.) E.T. (Extra-Terrestial)? (No, entity.) Entity! So I'm an entity now. (The most beautiful being in the world, in the whole universe. So, that was my driving force to come here.)Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very much. I really appreciate it. For you, at your age, I don't mean to offend or anything, but to drive all alone and go to the airport, packing all that, and take care at home before you go – this is really a miracle to me. (To me, it's like I just had to come. It was just like this big thing that I just had to be here.) Understand. (I just trust my inner knowing,) Yeah. (and that's what drives me.) Yeah, understand. You just want to go. I understand that.(But when You were talking about the hunters... Because this is a fear I have near where I live, because I live in such a remote area. And my horses... There's a lot of deer there, and the hunters come to shoot the deer.) Sometimes they shoot... (Which is really, really sad, but I worry for my horses, too.) Yeah, it could... (Because they're in that same vicinity.) Yeah, they could be your horses also. Understand. (But they have coats on them that have got reflective bands on them, so when they shine the lights.) But you never know. (No.) You never know. Sometimes they aim at the deer, but then if your horse is nearby, it could happen. (Yeah.)When I lived also one day, long ago, on another remote mountain, there was no water, no electricity, truly, truly nothing, and the hunters were also all over, around, with the hunting dogs even. So I had to fence it all in. (Well, they have national parks near where I am, and shooters are not allowed to go in there. So the animals, the wildlife, actually have got an area where they can go.) Yeah. (And they're protected. And nobody is allowed there. I mean, you can ride your horse through there or you can take a bike through there or whatever, but people are not allowed to take guns and dogs. No dogs, no cats are allowed to go in there. So the wildlife at least have got some area where they can have some peace.) Yeah.My area is also. But it's private land; I paid for it and everything. I was thinking maybe one day, we make something there and then everybody can come, but it's not that easy. There's only a small well, already dug. If we have rain water, we must have buildings. So we catch the rain. I built a little, it's like a small, not a pond even. I built it alongside the stones so that maybe water will run in there, but it's not much. And I took some water from some of the little sources from the mountains, but it’s also not much. Maybe… it takes a long time to fill up a tank of maybe 30 tons or something of water.I don't know why I told you this story? Because of your horse! You and your horse! For you, you think it's a miracle, because you live in it and you know how impossible things happen, and you feel it. You have the intuition and the connection inside, you feel it. But if you tell it like that in worldly language, it becomes like nothing. (I know.) I know that. (People don't understand) Understand. (how you feel about it.) Because you have to live it in order to know, to live the experience.That's why I told many of you, "Don't tell your experiences." But here, we understand. More? More miracles? Plenty, huh? (They happen all the time.) Understand, understand. (Yes, because it's a very peaceful place and it's sort of like you're always in a beautiful... you always have a lovely feeling. You wake up in the morning, it's beautiful.) Yeah. (You go through the day, you see your animals.) Aren't you lucky. (So many blessings. And when things are meant to happen, they just do, and it's... You can't really explain it to anybody because it just happens.) Yeah, I understand. I think many of them understand. OK, love, thank you very much for sharing. Thank you. Anybody else?(I just want to say thank You so much for everything that You've done for me. I know that You arrange everything and You take care of me so well. And my life couldn't be more perfect. Actually, before I came here... Because I finished my advanced diploma and I troubled myself to find a job. And I couldn't find a job, and I said to myself, "Oh, maybe because it's not a good time. Maybe I have to study more." Just one day before I came here and then I got a job offer, and I know that's You; You arranged everything. And my life couldn't be more perfect. I’ve got an excellent husband that he always supports me. Every time that we have a retreat, he always supports me and encourages me to come.)You are the only one who comes all the time. That poor guy stays home and takes care of everything. (Yes.) Look at them. That's why how many guys are lucky to be here. It's all women! "Honey, I want to go, I must go!" and then the husband says, "OK, OK, OK, just go." (Yes.) What else do the men do, huh? (Even though I depend on him financially 100%, because I'm not working at the moment.) You will be. (So, yes. Thank You for everything!) You're lucky. Lucky girl!(And one more thing that I wanted to share as well. My parents also want to say thank You to You. They got initiated in Hong Kong camp about over 20 years ago, and they couldn't make it here because it's really hard for them to get a visa and come here. And they haven't seen You for over 20 years, but they say to me that they do feel that You're with them all the time. And my parents, they own a Loving Hut in Âu Lạc (Vietnam). And the miracle is, from the first day of opening until now, the Loving Hut's always full of customers. And even, actually, to be honest with You, when they called me up and they said that they wanted to open the Loving Hut five years ago, I even wanted to stop them because before the Loving Hut they already opened two vegetarian restaurants before, but it's not successful. And I said to my parents, "Maybe you move to the other thing, maybe it does not suit you." But my mom, she has a deep connection with you inside, and she said, "I've never thought that I was going to open any vegetarian or vegan restaurant again because it's not for me, but somehow Master inside tells me that I have to open the Loving Hut." And then I can see that miracle, because it's not often that you see the restaurant from the first day ever of opening until now, which is five years already, it's full of customers every day. And especially the first day of the month and the middle day of the month, which is... the 1st and 15th day of the month, Master.) Buddhist. (Yes, and even when we don't have enough seats for all the customers, they have to queue up in such a long line, and some of them have to go out to find the seat themselves, but they're still happy.) OK. (It's kind of a miracle.) Must be good, good food. The miracle is the food! (Yes, but I think it's all about You. You bless the restaurant and everybody in the restaurant can feel it.) Good, wonderful, wonderful. Good news. Congratulations!They don't feel separate from me, that's why. They haven't see me in a long time, but they feel like they just saw me yesterday. It's OK like that. Some people are like that. That's why they can do many things, they can make it happen. Good, good. (Thank You, Master.) Go home and be nice to your husband. (I will.) Even though he loves you, but you have to be nice and appreciate it, and express it. Yeah, express it. I guess all of you know better than I how to be a wife. Who am I to tell you? Because I left him anyway. But I have always loved him. OK, anyone else? No? OK. It's good.I can read you some sutra? (Yes.) I appreciate it very much, when you ask really important questions or not important questions, but the main point is that it has to come from inside, sincerely. Sincerely you want to know about it, because you need it, even low-level questions, but if you really need it. Togo, your brother was not initiated? (No.) No, the one that was sick? (I'm the only initiate in my family.) You are the only one, OK. That's why he died and you live, that's what you meant, that's what you meant by a miracle. (Thank You.) (He was the only one initiated in his family.) Yes, his brother did not get initiated. (His brother wasn't initiated.) So the same sickness and the brother died and he did not. That's why he thinks it's a miracle, same sickness because of his genetics. (Yes, for generations…) So if he died, you would have, too. I understand now. Because I was thinking why his brother died and he didn't die, and then why it's such a miracle? Now I understand.This sutra is very famous. Amitabha Buddha is one of the most famous in the Buddha's kingdom. The Buddha Shakyamuni introduced Him to us, to His disciples, and now we also know about it. Quan Yin Bodhisattva, Amitabha Buddha, Shakyamuni Buddha, Medicine Buddha, these are famous. So I’ll read it.Amitabha Buddha is especially very famous, sometimes more famous than Shakyamuni Buddha. Many, for example, in Taiwan (Formosa), when they do a retreat with any master, they just recite, "Namo Amitabha Buddha" all the time. I have not seen one that recites, "Namo Shakyamuni Buddha" all the time. No. They do when they do praying and puja, but not a retreat specially just to recite "Namo Amitabha Buddha." He's quite famous.Now, I'm going to tell you why He is so famous. I will read you the sutra, then you will know why. You want to? (Yes.) Even the non-Buddhists? (Yes.) Who are non-Buddhist? Raise hands. OK, so now you understand something about Buddhism. Next time you meet the monks and you tell him, "I know, I know you." You're the son of Shakyamuni Buddha.
