De la un suflet la altul, partea 1 din 3

De la un suflet la altul, partea 1 din 3

În viaţa noastră, noi suferim foarte mult, pentru că noi am pierdut contactul cu Puterea Supremă, din noi înşine, care este Maestrul tuturor fiinţelor, acest Dumnezeu din noi. Pentru că dacă pierdem acest contact cu Dumnezeu, indiferent câte avuţii avem în această lume, nu vom putea niciodată să fim complet fericiţi.

De la un suflet la altul, partea 2 din 3

Îl putem contacta pe Dumnezeu în fiecare zi, să părăsim corpul pentru un timp şi să venim înapoi, zilnic. Fiecare din noi o poate face, la fel cum vă găsiţi ochelarii pe cap. Şi pentru că este aşa de uşor, mulţi dintre noi nu-şi pot imagina că aşa stau lucrurile, deci noi tot căutăm din greu şi ne este dor de El/Ea. Eu am făcut-o mulţi, mulţi ani, înainte să ştiu unde să-l caut pe Dumnezeu.

De la un suflet la altul, partea 3 din 3

Dumnezeu este numai iubire, iertare. Dumnezeu este mereu cu noi, vrea să ne protejeze, să ne dea toată fericirea pe care o vrem noi. Dar noi trebuie să avem contactul cu El/Ea ca să o primim.

Excerpts from The Sutra of Forty-two Chapters, Part 1 of 2 - Chapter 2 and Chapters 4 to 8

Excerpts from The Sutra of Forty-two Chapters, Part 1 of 2 - Chapter 2 and Chapters 4 to 8

“The Sutra of Forty-two Chapters” is thought to be the first Buddhist sutra from India to be translated into Chinese. During the first century AD, His Majesty Emperor Ming of China one night dreamt of a “Golden Being” with light surrounding His body who flew into the palace. The next morning, His Mejesty Emperor Ming summoned all his ministers and high officials to find out who this “Golden Being” might be. One of his ministers told the emperor about a great spiritual Master named Buddha whose teachings originated in India. Realizing that this must be the “Golden Being” in his dream, the emperor asked that a delegation go to the region where the Buddha had lived. He instructed them to request Buddhist scriptures that could help enlighten the Chinese people. The delegates traveled to India, where they were able to obtain Sanskrit sutras. They also invited the Venerated Kasyapa Matanga and Dharmaraksha, whom they met during the trip, to return with them and assist in translation. We will now share with you some excerpts from “The Sutra of Forty-two Chapters,” as revealed by the Buddha. “Chapter 4: Concurrent Definitions of Good and Evil ‘The Buddha said, “Multibeings could perform Virtues in ten ways, and so could they perpetrate Vices in ten ways. What are these Ten Vices? There are three in the Body, four in the Mouth, and three in the Mind. The three Physical Vices are Killing, Stealing and Copulation. The four Oral Vices are Alienating Speeches, Scurrilous Words, Untruthful Language, and Meaningless Chatters. The three Mental Vices are Jealousy, Resentment, and Ignorance. These Ten Vices are against the Sacred Way, and so they are also called the Ten Vile Deeds. If these Vices are terminated, that will result in the Ten Virtues.”’”

Excerpts from The Sutra of Forty-two Chapters, Part 2 of 2 - Chapters 9 to 12

“The Sutra of Forty-two Chapters” is one of the most widely read of the Buddha’s scriptures. This short but important scripture provides an entire range of the Buddha’s teachings, from the very basic to the most profound. We will now share with you some excerpts from “The Sutra of Forty-two Chapters” as revealed by the Buddha. “The Buddha said, ‘If a person loves the Truthful-Way and yet he tries to pursue it merely by extensive erudition, it would be hard for him to convene with the Truthful-Way. If man sustains his Mind and observes the Way, the Way shall grow immensely vast to him.’” “The Buddha said,’ When you see someone practicing Donation, and though you merely assist him by encouraging and feeling joyful for him, the Merits you are to acquire a cornucopia.’” “The Buddha said, ‘You could offer food to a hundred vicious people, but it would be much better merit-wise to make the offering to a virtuous man. You could offer food to one thousand virtuous people, but it would be much better merit-wise to make the offering to one person who observes the Five Precepts decreed by the Buddha. You could offer food to ten thousand observers of Five Precepts, but it would be much better merit-wise to make the offering to one Srota-apanna Saint. You could offer food to one million Srota-apanna Saints, but it would be much better merit-wise to make the offering to one Sakradagamin Saint. You could offer food to ten million Sakradagamin Saints, but it would be much better meritwise to make the offer to one Anagamin Saint. You could offer food to one hundred million Anagamin Saints, but it would be much better merit-wise to make the offering to one Arhat. You could offer food to one billion Arhats, but it would be much better merit-wise to make the offering to one Pratyeka-buddha. You could offer food to ten billion Pratyeka-buddhas, but it would be much better merit-wise to make the offering to any one Buddha of the Three Tempora. You could offer food to one hundred billion Buddhas of the Three Tempora, but it would be much better merit-wise to make the offering to a practitioner in the state of Non-deliberation, Non-adherence, and Non-attestation.’”

World Unity the Goal – Selections from Writings of Shoghi Effendi (vegetarian): The Unfoldment of World Civilization

World Unity the Goal – Selections from Writings of Shoghi Effendi (vegetarian): The Unfoldment of World Civilization

In the Bahá'í Faith, 'Abduʼl-Bahá, is the appointed Centre of Bahá'u'lláh’s Covenant and ordained the establishment of the Universal House of Justice and Shoghi Effendi is the appointed Guardian of the Bahá'í Faith. Shoghi Effendi was not just a translator, but also the designated authoritative power to interpret the Bahá'í writings. Today, we present to you an excerpt from “The Unfoldment of World Civilization Letters” by Shoghi Effendi. “Unification of the whole of mankind is the hallmark of the stage which human society is now approaching. Unity of family, of tribe, of city-state, and nation have been successively attempted and fully established.” “‘One of the great events,’ affirms ‘Abduʼl-Bahá, which is to occur in the Day of the manifestation of that incomparable Branch is the hoisting of the Standard of God among all nations. All men will adhere to one religion, will have one common faith, will be blended into one race and become a single people. All will dwell in one common fatherland, which is the planet itself.’ ‘ Now, in the world of being,’ He has moreover explained, ‘the Hand of Divine power hath firmly laid the foundations of this all-highest bounty, and this wondrous gift.’”

From the Sacred Texts of Hòa Hảo Buddhism: "The Master’s Loving Instructions" and "Teaching the Tao to Save People"

00:08:51

From the Sacred Texts of Hòa Hảo Buddhism: "The Master’s Loving Instructions" and "Teaching the Tao to Save People"

Today we present excerpts of the teachings of Prophet Huỳnh Phú Số. “Later, I will be absent for a long time. Then when the people die en masse that they can’t be buried fast enough, I will come back. Whomever I sprinkle the water on will be healed. This is the time I save my disciples and followers. After that, I will be absent for 10 days, so that they may pay their karma. At that time, the sky will be very dark. Water will rise up to these two hemp trees. At that time, Manjushri Bodhisattva will come down to save the people. After the flood, Heaven will send fire to purify the world, which will burn three feet into the Earth’s surface, turning it all red as brick. After the Kali Yuga ends, God and Buddha will use miracles to re-establish the Golden Age. At that time, the true practitioners will have: The compassionate Manjushri Bodhisattva, Rowing the Wisdom boat to save the drowning. Royal boat sails smoothly in the wind, Picking up the practitioners who will enjoy glory and honor.” “My duty is to teach the Tao to save people, not to cure sickness. But people do not understand and keep asking me for medicine, thus I had to reluctantly use some leaves and cold water to help them, so that they had a chance to be near me and listen to the Dharma, and then practice spiritually to escape suffering. However, later on, the sick will be so many, that no doctor can save them fast enough.”

Selections from The Astral City - Chapter 4: The Spirit Doctor

00:12:29

Selections from The Astral City - Chapter 4: The Spirit Doctor

Spiritism emerged in the mid-19th century through the findings and philosophy of French educator Hippolyte Léon Denizard Rivail, also known as Allan Kardec. Spiritism followers explore the nature, origin and destiny of souls, often through afterlife communication, conveyed via a medium. Numerous books have been written that provide insights into the afterlife and the soul’s immortality. One such volume is “Nosso Lar,” or “The Astral City,” by Spirit André Luiz through Spiritist medium Francisco Cândido Xavier. Francisco Cândido Xavier was a well-known Brazilian philanthropist who co-authored more than 400 books. In “The Astral City,” former medical doctor André Luiz speaks from the afterlife of his awakening and healing within a spiritual society near the Earth’s surface. This story describes not only the continuation of life beyond the physical body, but more importantly how Heaven cares for each and every human soul. The following excerpt from “The Astral City” describes how André Luiz was strengthened spiritually upon his rescue from the Lower Zones.

From the Gnostic Nag Hammadi Library: Excerpts from The Gospel of Truth, Part 1 of 2

00:12:37

From the Gnostic Nag Hammadi Library: Excerpts from The Gospel of Truth, Part 1 of 2

We'll now explore a selection from the Gospel of Truth, a gnostic scripture, part of the Nag Hammadi Library. The author of the book is unknown, whereas it is suggested that it was written by a disciple of the Valentinian Gnostic movement, or even by Valentinus himself. Valentinus was a prominent Egyptian theologian from Early Christianity who founded the Gnostic movement Valentinianism in the 2nd century. Here, as we begin to understand the great love of Lord Jesus Christ as He watches over God's children, we can also start to see that trusting in God's will is necessary to be in complete union with Christ. “Say, then, from the heart, that you are the perfect day, and in you dwells the Light that does not fail. Speak of the truth with those who search for it, and (of) knowledge to those who have committed sin in their error. Make firm the foot of those who have stumbled, and stretch out your hands to those who are ill. Feed those who are hungry, and give repose to those who are weary, and raise up those who wish to rise, awaken those who sleep. For you are the understanding that is drawn forth. If strength acts thus, it becomes even stronger. Be concerned with yourselves; do not concerned with other things which you have rejected from yourselves.”

From the Gnostic Nag Hammadi Library: Excerpts from The Gospel of Truth, Part 2 of 2

Today, we continue reading from the excerpts of the Gospel of Truth, part of the Nag Hammadi Library. The scripture inspires us with the indescribable security, love and sense of belonging that one’s soul experiences being in a perfect union with one’s Creator, and resting in the Truth. “‘He [Christ] is good. He knows His plantings, because it is He who planted them in His Paradise. Now His Paradise is His place of rest.’ This is the perfection in the thought of the Father, and these are the words of His meditation. Each one of His words is the work of His one will in the revelation of His Word. While they were still depths of His thought, the Word, which was first to come forth, revealed them, along with a mind that speaks the one Word in silent grace. He was called ‘thought,’ since they were in it before being revealed. It came about, then, that He was first to come forth, at the time when the will of Him who willed desired it. And the Will is what the Father rests in, and is pleased with. Nothing happens without Him, nor does anything happen without the will of the Father, but His will is unsearchable.”

The Path of Discipleship by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

00:13:19

The Path of Discipleship by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Born in 1861, Dr. Rudolf Steiner was a great Austrian polymath, philosopher and scientist who made influential contributions in the fields of education, science, spirituality and medicine. His writings cover a wide range of subjects, and he published more than 25 books, including "Mysticism at the Dawn of the Modern Age," "The Way of Initiation," and "Intuitive Thinking as a Spiritual Path: The Philosophy of Freedom." He developed and taught an esoteric spiritual philosophy called anthroposophy, based on "the science of the spirit." Today, we will explore selected parts from Dr. Rudolf Steiner's book "The Way of Initiation." The author reveals how by balancing our inner and outer life, one can continue a safer and more promising path in attaining higher knowledge. Further in the chapter "The Path of Discipleship," the importance of taking enough time in tranquility to contemplate on the essence of life's experiences is emphasized. "He does not learn in order that he may accumulate wisdom as his own treasure, but in order that he may put his learning at the service of the world." "Provide for yourself moments of inward calm, and in these moments learn to distinguish between the real and the unreal." "Our aim, in moments of retirement, must be to contemplate and judge our own experiences and actions, as though it were not ourselves but some other person to whom they applied."

00:13:48

The Path of Discipleship by Dr. Rudolf Steiner (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

We now continue with Dr. Rudolf Steiner’s engaging and detailed elaboration on the path of discipleship. The admired philosopher delivers caring advice on how one can get in touch with one’s higher Self in order to live a more enlightened life of true inner freedom and completeness. “Outward circumstances can only alter the course of his outward life; they can never awaken the spiritual inner man. The student must himself give birth to the new and higher man within him. The higher man becomes the ‘inner Ruler,’ who directs the circumstances of the outer man with sure guidance. As long as the latter has the upper hand, this inner man is enslaved, and cannot therefore develop his powers. If another than myself has the power to make me angry, I am not master of myself, or, to put it better, I have not yet found ‘the Ruler within me.’ I must develop the power within, of letting the impressions of the outer world approach me only in the way in which I myself choose; then only do I really become an occult student. And only by earnestly striving after this power can a student reach the goal.”

From Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Book 2, Part 1 of 2

From Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Book 2, Part 1 of 2

Marcus Aurelius was a Roman emperor of the 2nd century, also known as the last of the Five Good Emperors, after Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, and Antoninus Pius. During his 19 years of leadership, Aurelius gained a reputation as a philosopher king. Founding his beliefs on the teachings of Stoicism, the Roman emperor was also diligent in finding his own way of self-improvement. Marcus Aurelius wrote personal notes and ideas on Stoic philosophy and spirituality as a source of guidance for himself. These notes, originally written in medieval Greek, formed a collection titled “Meditations.” We’ll now explore “Book 2” from Marcus Aurelius’ compilation “Meditations.” Unwavering are the wise notes given by the philosopher, reminding us during our limited time on Earth to live a more simplified life. “At some point you have to recognize what world it is that you belong to; what power rules it and from what source you spring; that there is a limit to the time assigned you, and if you don’t use it to free yourself it will be gone and will never return.”

From Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations: Book 2, Part 2 of 2

Today, we continue with “Book 2” from Marcus Aurelius’ “Meditations.” While emphasizing the ephemeral nature of all things, the wise emperor highlights the importance of focusing on one’s power within, and respecting the Divine reality of the present. “You could leave life right now. Let that determine what you do and say and think. If the gods exist, then to abandon human beings is not frightening; the gods would never subject you to harm.” “And how man grasps God, with what part of himself he does so, and how that part is conditioned when he does. Nothing is more pathetic than people who run around in circles, ‘delving into the things that lie beneath’ and conducting investigations into the souls of the people around them, never realizing that all you have to do is to be attentive to the power inside you and worship it sincerely.” “To worship it is to keep it from being muddied with turmoil and becoming aimless and dissatisfied with nature - divine and human. What is divine deserves our respect because it is good; what is human deserves our affection because it is like us. And our pity too, sometimes, for its inability to tell good from bad - as terrible a blindness as the kind that can’t tell white from black.”

Selections from Saints Alive by Hilda Charlton (vegetarian): Chapter One – The Garden of Master Jesus, Part 2 of 2

“Jesus appeared outside a bus one day when I was grumbling about the heat of the Orient and the dirt and the dust on the bus. Flying along outside the window was my Jesus, and what He said is for all of us. He said, ‘No, no, not Crucifixion for you. A life more abundant I come to bring.’ He spoke of many things that were abundant. He means everything - your physical world abundant, your emotional world cleaned up, your mental world clear. Everything abundant. Not Crucifixion for us! He did that job and left. He said it very clearly that day. He said, ‘When I say abundant, I mean all planes.’ And so He does, if you know how to believe and call and trust.” “A Hindu girl says that no matter what a person does to her or who judges her or says mean things to her or how many mistakes she makes, there is One ever near, forgiving. ‘Forgiving, loving, compassionate,’ she says, ‘Jesus is always near.’ I just know that He forgives and He’s there to help, putting out His hand. He’s just so compassionate. I feel like He’s always watching over all of us to guide us and to help us and that with Jesus you can never go wrong because He’ll never forsake you.’”

From the White Buffalo Teachings by Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Part 1 of 2

Chief Arvol Looking Horse is the 19th generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe Bundle for the Great Sioux Nation. This, coupled with his sacred duty as spiritual leader for the Lakota, Dakota, and Nakota Nations, inspired him to work for a profound change in the world toward peace and increased recognition of the Indigenous peoples' beautiful way of life. Among his many harmonizing efforts are the establishment in 1996 of the annual World Peace and Prayer Day on June 21, and his important book "White Buffalo Teaching." Chief Arvol Looking Horse's book "White Buffalo Teaching" shares ancient Indigenous wisdom, prophecies and warnings about this crucial time on our planet, a time that requires our clear and unwavering choice for a positive world change. Let us now read an excerpt from the eye-opening insights by the honorable Chief Arvol Looking Horse. "OUR RELATIVES, THE ANIMAL NATIONS, REFLECT OUR OWN WELL-BEING. The buffalo, wolf, salmon, bear, caribou, eagle, whale, dolphin and many other sacred relatives in this fragile ecosystem are all in danger and are suffering. We, the Indigenous Nations, see what our brother Animal Nations are going through, since we are all connected, we are all One. WHAT HAPPENS TO THEM, HAPPENS TO US!" "EACH OF US IS PUT HERE IN THIS TIME AND THIS PLACE TO PERSONALLY DECIDE THE FUTURE OF HUMANKIND."

From the White Buffalo Teachings by Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Part 2 of 2

Today, we continue with reading a selection from Chief Arvol Looking Horse’s book “White Buffalo Teachings.” He emphasizes more on the importance and urgency of a global healing, so that we can secure a brighter future for the generations yet to come. “Our Instructions from Wakan Tankan (the Great Spirit, the Great Mystery) tell us to promote global healing, to teach peace and harmony to the many Nations of Mother Earth and to begin both a Great Healing and a Great Forgiving. We must teach all Peoples that Mother Earth is not a resource, but the very Source of Life itself. Unless we do this, the powers of destruction will overwhelm us. So our generation has been put here to save all future generations. That’s why we hold this World Peace & Prayer Day each year since 1996 (June 21), because two years before that the White Buffalo Calf was born among us as a Sign both of Warning and of Deliverance. In a Prophecy, we were told we would be the key people to re-educate our relatives, teaching the medicines of balance and harmony that our Mother Earth needs to survive. That’s why I say that we are at a Crossroads, each of us and all of us – a Crossroads predicted in our Prophecies.” “White Buffalo Calf Woman’s spirit has announced her message of support in this time of great danger, and she continues to announce the message in the birth of each White Buffalo – each one of them a Sign, each one a fulfillment of ancient Prophecy as well as a new Prophecy for our times.”

Selections from the Writings of Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2 – The Benefits of Saving the Lives of Other Beings

00:15:55

Selections from the Writings of Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2 – The Benefits of Saving the Lives of Other Beings

Tibetan Buddhism is a religion with a rich cultural heritage that emerged from a wide range of spiritual practices. Born in Tibet in 1913, Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche left home as a young teen, traveling on foot to study and practice with several highly respected spiritual Masters of the time. As a strict vegetarian himself, Chatral Rinpoche also rescued millions of fish that had been destined for slaughter by purchasing them and then releasing them into a protected area of the Indian Ocean. During his life and since his passing at age 102, Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche is considered among the most highly realized Tibetan Buddhist Masters. Today, we present to you an excerpt from the writings of Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche, “The Benefits of Saving the Lives of Other Beings.” “And countless learned and accomplished masters of India and Tibet Have emphasized the value and importance of benefitting beings. The reasoning behind this is as follows: in this world, Nothing is as dear to someone as his or her own life, So there is no greater crime than taking life away, And no conditioned virtue bring greater merit Than the act of saving beings and restoring their lives. Lamas, officials, monks, nuns, men and women, In all the places over which you have control, Exert every influence and do all within your power To release animals and restore their lives, While encouraging others to do the same.”

Selections from the Writings of Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2 – Words of Advice

Today, we present to you an excerpt from the writings of Chatral Sangye Dorje Rinpoche, “Words of Advice.” “Listen well, my dear disciples who are gathered here, For all those whose hearts have not been spoiled, consider this: The chances of finding a human existence are one in a hundred. Now that you have found one, if you fail to practice the sublime Dharma, How could you possibly expect to find such an opportunity again? This is why it is crucial that you take advantage of your situation. Conceiving of your body as a servant or a thing to ferry you about, Do not allow it to rest in idleness for even a single moment; Use it well, spurring on your entire body, speech and mind to virtue. You might spend your whole life pursuing only food and clothing, With great effort and without regard for suffering or harmful deeds, But when you die you cannot take even a single thing with you – consider this well. The clothing and alms needed to keep you alive are all you need. You might dine on the finest meal of delicious meat and alcohol, But it all turns into something impure the very next morning, And there is nothing more to it all than that. So be content with life-sustaining provisions and simple clothes, And be a loser when it comes to food, clothing and conversation. If you do not reflect on death and impermanence, There will be no way to practice Dharma purely, Practice will remain an aspiration, one that is constantly postponed, And you may feel regret the day that death comes, but by then it will be too late!”
