Our Most Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai lovingly spoke with the Supreme Master Television team on December 9, 2020, taking precious time away from Her intensive meditation retreat for the world. She graciously translated from Aulacese, also known as Vietnamese, to English, stories from the book, “A Treasury of Jewish Folklore” compiled by Nguyễn Ước. One titled, “The City Guardian,” was about Abraham, a venerated Patriarch in Judaism and Christianity and a venerated Prophet in Islam.
“Now Abraham often pondered and talked to himself, saying thus: ‘How much longer do we have to focus on labor work? It is really not worthy when we have to obey the body for any other things except the earth. Because the earth produces vegetables and fruits, thus keeps us alive, sustains us. But we have to see the earth also needs rain. If there is no rain then…’ He said, ‘If the sky doesn’t open to allow rain to come down to the earth, then the earth also cannot produce anything.’ So Abraham changed his mind. He was thinking that anything else belongs to the physical, nothing is better than the earth, because the earth produces so many nutritious products to keep us alive. But then, he was thinking again, ‘No, but the earth needs rain.’” (Yes.) So he thinks the earth is not the number one either.
“So then he’s thinking, ‘Oh no, then only the sky is worthy for us to worship.’ Because before he was thinking, ‘Oh, everything just to take care of the body is not worthy. Working, working just to earn something to eat, or to survive, that’s not worthy. So the earth is better. We should better concentrate to worship the earth, not worship the body, not take care too much of the body.’ And then afterward he was thinking, ‘Oh, but the earth needs the rain.’ So now he thinks, ‘If the sky doesn’t allow the rain to come down, then the earth is useless.’ Thus, now he thinks the sky is more worthy to be worshipped. Right. Right. (Right.)
And then he was seeing the Sun in the sky. He was thinking, ‘Oh no, the Sun gives the whole world brightness and brilliant color so that all the trees and fruits, and everything can grow.’ (Yes.) And then he said, ‘OK then, only the Sun is worthy for us to worship.’ (Yes.) And then the Sun set. He was thinking, ‘Huh? OK. Then like that, the Sun is not the God, is not the High Spirit,’” that’s what he meant. So the Sun is also not worthy enough for him to worship.
“And then after that, Abraham was thinking, he is weighing back and forth, and he saw the Moon come out, and then many beautiful, brilliant stars in the sky, and how they brighten the dark night. So he said, ‘Oh, the Moon and the stars, only they are worthy for us to worship.’”
“Then the Moon disappeared.” It does sometimes in the night. “And then he said, ‘Oh, then the Moon is also not worthy enough for us to worship as God, as Spirit of God.’” They call it God Spirit, but they mean God Almighty. (Yes.) “And then Abraham keeps looking, keeps thinking, keeps pondering…”
Master also mentioned the importance of learning about the Jewish people.
The Jewish people, in my impression, are the much misunderstood race of beings in the world. So maybe we should learn some things about them, so we have more ease between everybody and the Jewish people. (Yes, Master.)
Our Most Compassionate Master, our deep gratitude for sharing Your valuable time and for opening our eyes to the beauty of different religions, traditions and peoples. The Divine has truly bestowed tremendous blessings on us all. We look forward to when we can live in harmony with each other and all cherished beings on a vegan planet. May the Mighty Godses forever protect Master to live in peace, joy and excellent health as Her noble mission reaches fulfillment, in Heaven’s Glory.
