TOPWisdom and Judgement Jan. 12, 2020

On Sunday, January 12, 2020, our Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly addressed the assembly of our fellow Quan Yin practitioners at the New Land Ashram in Taiwan, also known as Formosa. Our Gracious Master also explained the difference between wisdom and our judgement, with a few examples for clarity. “We have to practice more in order to have wisdom, but it’s very difficult for you to feel the difference between wisdom and your own judgement. I’ll tell you some examples of wisdom and your own preconceived ideas, judgements.” “You always have to improve. You learn with me, but you don’t copy me in my doing, because sometimes you copy differently. You don’t understand the meaning behind it, and you just copy blindly. That’s no good. You have to know logic and reason, not to talk about wisdom yet.”

And you still hang around, sticking in there. Thank you so much. I thank you all from my heart. God bless you.”

TOPMaya is gone! Nov. 24, 2019

On Sunday, November 24, 2019, at the New Land in Taiwan, also known as Formosa, our Most Compassionate Supreme Master Ching Hai shared the greatest news of all eons, for all the worlds and universes! “Maya is gone!” “The force of karma is gone!” “The negative force is also gone!” “I am just the commander in chief. Thanks all the Godses, all the Universal Beings, Who put all Their power together; otherwise, it won’t work.” “You will see. It takes a few more weeks to really feel the effect. You will see the change, bigger changes, better changes, and you will feel more light in yourself, easier to meditate, calmer.” We are in awe and forever grateful to our Ultimate Master, Lord of All Worlds, and the Universal Beings for delivering us from the clutches of maya, the negative force and the force of karma. May our joyous praises, our bountiful appreciation resound throughout the universes as all beings celebrate this epoch-making victory!

Selections from My Religion by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Chapter II, Part 2 of 2

Selections from My Religion by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Chapter II, Part 2 of 2

Tolstoy illuminated the principle that true Christian doctrine is against violent retaliation and that we should instead do good in return for evil. Forgive not once, but endlessly. Love your enemies and be good to those who dislike you. Tolstoy also highlighted that Jesus’ primary message was to be truly human, to rise to a higher level and be born into the new life of the spirit. By embracing the higher law of love, we will be able to break the cycle of violence. We should like to share an insightful excerpt from Chapter Ⅱ of “My Religion.” “The command, ‘Resist not evil,’ is the central point of Jesus’ doctrine. It is not a mere verbal affirmation; it is a rule whose practice is obligatory. When we regard it as a command impossible of performance, the value of the entire doctrine is lost. When we declare that one may be a Christian without observing the commandment, ‘Resist not evil,’ we simply leave out the connecting link which transmits the force of the doctrine of Jesus into action.”

Tal Gilboa: At The Forefront of Inspiring Israel's Vegan Movement, Part 2 of 3

In 2013 Tal Gilboa co-founded “Israel Animal Liberation Front” which was renamed “Total Liberation Israel” in 2018. This is one of the fastest growing social movements of our time calling for the total liberation of animals everywhere through marches, rallies and blockading trucks to the slaughter houses etc. The animal justice movement is increasingly attracting adherents across Israel and the activism is paving the way for a new era in animal rights. Besides various initiatives including creative protests and demonstrations, Tal Gilboa was also delivering lectures to diverse audiences: from high-school students to the military, business and political decision-makers. Her passion for animal causes took her to face unchartered territory, to compete for the first time and won the 6th edition of the intense contest of HaAh HaGadol. “Half a million people changed their diet while I was there. And everything that I did was just to think about, ‘It's going to do good for the animals or not?’”

A Warm Gathering with Working Staff, Part 1 of 2 May 1, 2019

Just chat, chat, chat with the workers. They have been working very hard. Because if there are too many people, then they cannot come in. they just stand next to the fence somewhere waiting, waving. So, today, I let them be the first. I’ve never known one Iranian to have doubts about the Quan Yin Method. It’s absolute for them, because they’re brought up in this kind of teaching and they understand. Just because they didn’t know there are Masters. If they know that there is a Master who can give them the (inner Heavenly) Sound, oh, immediately and no doubts ever. Because they already know that. The system is like that. When a human is born, he’s already bound by tradition or by the established religion, so it’s very difficult for him to find the True Path. If he’s not being bound by social tradition, then, and even if he wants to seek the Truth, he will be bound by religious custom and all that, and a lot of work, a lot of work, and then he’ll be lost in those rituals and traditions, and he will not be able to find the real religion.

Selections from My Religion by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Chapter II, Part 1 of 2

“Everyone thinks of changing the world but no one thinks of changing himself.” This insightful saying by Leo Tolstoy is a good reminder for all of us to reflect inward. The renowned 19th-century Russian author suggested that we ask ourselves what God really wants us to do. Yearning for more than success, fame, and wealth, Leo Tolstoy eventually established himself as a moral philosopher and spiritual leader during the last 30 years of his life. In addition to adopting and promoting the vegetarian diet, he became a fervent Christian pacifist through an interpretation of the ethical teachings of Christ. My Religion is a book by Count Leo Tolstoy, completed in 1884. It is the follow up to his book, A Confession. These two volumes show his transition from existential questions about life to a firm belief in God and the spiritual principle of nonviolent resistance as described in the Gospels of the Holy Bible. “When I apprehended clearly the words ‘Resist not evil,’ my conception of the doctrine of Jesus was entirely changed; and I was astounded, not that I had failed to understand it before, but that I had misunderstood it so strangely. I knew, as we all know, that the true significance of the doctrine of Jesus was comprised in the injunction to love one’s neighbor. When we say, ‘Turn the other cheek,’ ‘Love your enemies,’ we express the very essence of Christianity.”

We thank all the singers and songwriters for making these beautiful songs that remind us of Buddha’s love and wisdom.

Shining World Compassion Award Recipient: No Dogs Left Behind, Part 1 of 2

No Dogs Left Behind (NDLB) is an international emergency rescue organization on a mission to end the dog meat trade in Asia. Jeffrey Beri, a vegan, is the founder of No Dogs Left Behind. Although he loved his career, he decided to follow the true calling of his heart and devoted his life to rescuing the helpless dog friends in Asia, healing their physical and mental pains, and finding them loving new homes. “I got involved with dog rescue when, like many of us, hear the atrocities that take place within the dog meat trade. And we all saw these videos, and I’m an animal lover. I’m also a vegan. So I decided to pack my bags and hang my suit. And travel to China, and work with amazing people, and formulate a foundation called No Dogs Left Behind.” Since the beginning of their presence in China in 2016, members of No Dogs Left Behind have participated many times in stray dog rescue and recovery.

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

“But it’s just the problem. One problem is that, even at the time of death, before you go into the Three Evil Paths, just before that, even if you remember Buddha’s name, just one Buddha’s name, or one sentence from here, then the road to hell is closed for you, even if you’ve done a lot of bad things.” “Of course, you don’t have to remember any of them. If you have one Master, it’s good.” “Try not to complain a lot. Try to see things positively and accept the situation. But nevertheless, all the Centers should work together. Every time we do things without love, there’s a hole in our protective layer, personally as well. Only peace and love can protect you more, apart from the Holy Names, and the Buddha’s power, and all that. When you’re practicing, all the Buddhas in the past, meaning all the Masters in the past, and present, are helping you also. Blessing you all the time. All the angels are protecting you. But you have to be really sincere, so you can connect better.”

The Songs of Kabir (vegetarian): Selections from 1 to 26, Part 2 of 2

Music is all around it, and there the heart partakes of the joy of the Infinite Sea. Kabir says: “Dive thou into that Ocean of sweetness: thus let all errors of life and of death flee away.” Behold how the thirst of the five senses is quenched there! And the three forms of misery are no more! Kabir says: “It is the sport of the Unattainable One: look within, and behold how the moon-beams of that Hidden One shine in you.” There falls the rhythmic beat of life and death: Rapture wells forth, and all space is radiant with light. There the Unstruck Music is sounded; it is the music of the love of the three worlds. There millions of lamps of sun and of moon are burning; There the drum beats; and the lover swings in play. There love-songs resound, and light rains in showers; and the worshipper is entranced in the taste of the heavenly nectar. Look upon life and death; there is no separation between them, The right hand and the left hand are one and the same.

Small Creatures, Big Adventures: “Ratatouille” & “Stuart Little”

This Saturday, January 25, is Lunar New Year! As we get ready to welcome the year of the Rat, let’s take a look at two films, “Ratatouille” and “Stuart Little,” which tell the delightful tales of two courageous little animals, a rat and a mouse, and their grand adventures. “Ratatouille” is directed by Academy Award winner Brad Bird. Pixar Animation Studios’ well-known brilliant storytelling is readily apparent in this fantastic film. “Stuart Little” is a sweet film showing that good things do come in small packages. The film is inspired by E.B. White’s book of the same name, which was published in 1945. Columbia Pictures presents a story for anyone who’s ever had trouble fitting in. Filled with adventure, happiness, and love, “Ratatouille” and “Stuart Little” are delightful movies that remind us to cherish the wonderful, unique qualities of every being, small or big, human or non-human.

IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land – Heralding a Plant-Powered Global Food System, Part 2 of 2

In view of such daunting challenges, the IPCC Climate Change and Land Special Report could represent our last hope for a sustainable future. It is also a solution that can be carried out on both the individual and the governing front. The first of these themes involves the preservation of our world’s forests, as well as other land-based carbon-absorbing “sinks,” such as wetlands and grasslands. The second theme focuses on putting an end to our grossly inefficient food system. The Report concludes that transitioning to a plant-strong diet can free up hundreds of millions of acres of land, which will help to curb deforestation and climate change. Upon hearing of the IPCC Special Report’s suggestion for the world to transition to a plant-strong diet, our beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai was overcome with joy. “We had good news: the United Nations and all the countries in the world signed the less meat protocol. So it’s becoming official now. I hope they just go forward. Become meatless. Not less meat, but meatless. No meat at all. That’s why I came to celebrate with you.”

“Thank You, Master, for reading these beautiful sutras for us in the last days. And this really enlightens our minds to understand the Buddhists, and what Shakyamuni Buddha has done for us, for the living beings.” “We are very happy there are also ways for the people, if they pray to the Buddhas or Christ, they have some ways to liberate.” “Because it’s difficult for all to be initiated, or meditate.” So just tell them to read the sutra. But they have to believe sincerely also. So that, this belief, this sincerity will connect with the Buddha power. Not just blah, blah, blah, blah. Connecting from inside. So they have to be sincere, humble, really request. Even though you say reciting the Buddha’s name, and the past Buddha, and then, or do something, then finally you will be Buddha. But meanwhile, there are so many thousands, hundreds of eons passed already. And then, even then, you might be led into temptation and having suffering meanwhile. So no matter what. Of course enlightenment, immediate enlightenment is the best. So you have the one lifetime, finished. If you practice directly, the (inner Heavenly) Light and the Sound of the universe, then you are directly in. Don’t have to be reborn again, and enjoy the merit or suffer the sin. It’s the best.

The Songs of Kabir (vegetarian): Selections from 1 to 26, Part 1 of 2

Kabir was a great Indian poet who was fully devoted to the Creator. He was a Saint who not only endeavored to live the Truth, He wrote about it through His divine gift of verse. A weaver by profession, Kabir is considered as one of the world’s greatest poets and one of the most quoted authors. Kabir’s message is universal. Perhaps that is why many still revere Kabir as a Saint, whether they are a Sikh, Hindu, Muslim or modern spiritual seekers. We would now like to invite you to be sublime in the beautiful spiritual poetry selected from “The Songs of Kabir.” “Bathe in the truth, know the true Guru, have faith in the true Name!” “The moon shines in my body, but my blind eyes cannot see it: The moon is within me, and so is the sun. The unstruck drum of Eternity is sounded within me; but my deaf ears cannot hear it. So long as man clamours for the I and the Mine, his works are as nothing: When all love of the I and the Mine is dead, then the work of the Lord is done.”
