Whatever We Want, We Will Have It, Part 2 of 12

They’re very honest people, you know. We just mistakenly gave a little bit more and they just ran after us and returned the rest of the money. They say otherwise you have to buy more to make up for the money. They don’t take your money at all. The people around here, you can trust.

Buddhist Stories: Cinca the Brahmin Girl, Part 4 of 5

A monk, he forgets all his family already, and he goes out to become a monk, then at least his heart is purified. And he walks around lending his beautiful energy to the whole country. He doesn’t have to do anything. So they should treat him with respect, all the monks. Regardless, regardless of what religion. In India, you see, everyone is safe. I mean as far as Hinduism and Buddhism are concerned. And afterward there come other religions after that, and become less so devoted. Influenced from the outside. Before, the Indian people were more pure. But they still do now, in many parts of India. When you go to a farmer… I went to some farm, some time ago, on the road, and met some farmer girl. Immediately she greeted me, “Hari hari, Ram Ram.” Means, “Greetings to You, the God,” something like that. They treat you like God. And they immediately, on their mouth, come out of their lips, always God. Just a rural farmer girl. It's not like a sophisticated master or something. It's very, very ingrained in most of the Indian people. Not all of them of course, but most of them. They still keep this tradition of God devotion. And all the temples, always hear chanting everywhere. Beautiful! They chant all the time in praise of God. No matter what temple, no matter what they believe. Beautiful instruments they play and they sing. Yeah, beautiful. I'm glad India exists. I'm glad. So every year in winter, I repay the kindness of Indian people (Yes.) by giving the wandering monks, people, blankets and something, (it’s) the least I can do, every winter. The monks, they need blankets, the wandering monks. They are Hindu monks or Buddhist monks, I don’t know, whatever. The wandering monks, they’re really ascetic. They have nothing. Some monks don’t have anything to eat for two weeks or something like that because nobody gave him anything. Never mind. Many humans still don’t know what to do, how to repay the monks’ kindness. Because even if the monk is preaching nothing, even he’s not like a holy monk or not very… Maybe, who knows he’s holy or not? A monk, he forgets all his family already, and he goes out to become a monk, then at least his heart is purified. And he walks around lending his beautiful energy to the whole country. He doesn’t have to do anything. So they should treat him with respect, all the monks. Regardless, regardless of what religion. Regardless of whether or not you think he’s holy or not. It’s the symbol of love, of compassion, of wisdom, of detachment. These are all the qualities that we long to have but don’t. All right. Now, so if you offer something to such a renounced person, then maybe he would lend you some of his virtues. And maybe in the future life you can be a monk - detached. At least in this lifetime, feel more detached, less bound. All right, so… in India, I heard that you should never upset a monk because you don’t know what power he possesses. And by upsetting him, that power in him will repulse it and return it to you without him wanting it. He’s protected. So, just like you spit at the sky and it comes back to you. So you should never upset a monk. Never make him angry, never do anything improper, never disrespect him - a monk, any monk. So OK, like that. And then after that, he went to the Himalayas, adopted the life of an ascetic. “And in the course of time, developed the direct knowledge by the practice of deep meditation.” Enlightened. “Now a certain forester happened to see him there, and reported to the king. Thereupon, the king went to him, exchanged friendly greetings with him, learned what had happened, and offered to bestow his kingdom upon the Great Being.” Wow, wanted to give him the whole kingdom or half at least. “The Great Being, however, declined his offer and admonished him as follows. ‘For my part, I have no desire to rule. But as for you, Majesty, you should keep, unimpaired, the ten royal virtues. Avoid evil deeds and rule your kingdom justly.’ Thereupon, the king arose from his seat in tears and went back to the city. The ten virtues of the royal king are: giving, virtuous conduct, renunciation…” Inside, of course. He cannot go in the forest just like him, but at least inside. “Renunciation, uprightness, gentleness, austerity, non-anger, harmlessness, patience, non-opposition to the will…” Means for the will of the people, means not to rule against the will of the people, being good and gentle to people. I cannot be king. Non-anger, I fail. (So mean.) So mean, huh? So scary, Master. Oh now, don’t make me do that again. All your fault. If I live alone with my dog, would I do that? No. All your fault, it’s all your fault. Right, then. So the king cried and went back to his palace. “On the way there, he asked his ministers, ‘Through whose fault was I separated from one endowed with such uprightness like this?’” Like the monk. “So the minister said to him, ‘Your chief consort was to blame for this, Your Majesty.’” You know, his wife. It's the chief of the concubines. “Thereupon, the king had her taken by the heels, and flung head first down Robbers’ Cliff.” Oh man! He threw her down the cliff, meaning she will die. But when he ordered to throw the prince down, he did not die. The dragon caught him, the fairy took care of him. So now… “And entering his city, from then on, he ruled his kingdom justly. At that time Prince Mahā Paduma was the Great Being, and the fellow-wife of his mother was Ciñcā Mānavikā,” the second wife. End of the story of the past. “When the Buddha had made this matter clear. He said, ‘Monks, in the case of those who have abandoned one thing, the speaking of the truth, who have become confirmed in falsehood, who have rid themselves of the chance of a happy next world, there is no evil deed which way they will not commit.’ So saying, He pronounced the following stanza. ‘The person of false speech — Transgressor of one principle, Rejecter of the other world: There is no evil he cannot do.’” Meaning, if you can tell lies then you can do any other bad deeds. Even though it doesn’t seem very big, the sin. We would think killing is a greater sin than telling lies, but here the Buddha pronounced that if you can tell false… He means telling lies, harmless lie, sometimes is OK. But if you accuse somebody or you blame somebody in such a way like that, you make up a story to defame somebody, slander someone like that, this is a big lie. Then there’s nothing else bad that you could not do. Means if you’re such a person who slanders and tells a lie, fabricates a story like that to harm somebody else, then everything else, however bad, other precepts you will also destroy. Ruin yourself. Understand now? You are so clever. I’m proud of you, very proud. I was thinking there is another story but I don’t know, I will find it tomorrow. Not now anyway. And then we will have a happy time again. Everybody’s happy to be gone now. Keep the chair there. Keep the chair. Anybody else who needs a chair like that, we can arrange in the back. And then if you sit in the back, you don’t disturb anybody. Anyone else needs a chair? No? Yes? No, no? Yes, yes? No? OK, no. All right. What is it you want to show me? You mentioned there was something new? (Did I give this to You the other day?) Ah, you already gave it to me. Oh, this is big brother Sâm, huh? (Yes.) One of my cousins. This is me when I was younger. And my cousin. My cousin, big cousin is here. He’s a soil engineer, and this was me. And some of the others, the nieces and the nephews. I don’t remember them. I just remember him. I never remembered that I took a picture with him, either. First time, first time I saw it. (You have it already? Do You have this one, Master?) I already have it. Not that one, but I have this one. These are my parents, my sister, bigger sister, myself, my grandma. And who is this? (Grandma.) No. I know it’s grandma. Who is this? (Aunt Bốn.) Ah, yeah. It’s my aunt, the one who owned the jewelry shop, gold shop, gold jewelry shop. Gold and jewelry stuff. My grandma. She lived until 105. (Wow!) She was very religious. This was your Master. Your great Master. Big Master, big Guru. It’s my elder sister. She was not born at that time. Younger sister and younger brother. OK, good. All right, that’s it. And what is this? Who wrote these letters? (These are Your letters sent a long time ago. I remembered that, so I brought it with me.) Oh, really! OK, wow, thank you! Oh, wow! Thank you very much. (I read it.) OK. You want to keep it, or for me? For me, thank you, thank you, very nice. Very nice of you. You keep so many things. (This is my grandchild.) Ah, my God! Can you believe she already has a grandchild? Is it a boy? (It’s a girl, Master.) A girl, but how come she looks like a boy? OK. Girl. My grandchild, my granddaughter. She’s so young and already has. (Yes.) In Âu Lạc (Vietnam), her granddaughter is also my granddaughter. They will also call me “Grandma.” Oh, man. Feeling old. (Age of chewing betel nut.) (Everyone is old now.) Feeling old. I did not have this photo with him. I just have this photo alone. (I’ve already made my own copy last time.) Oh, is it so? (And this one I haven’t.) Oh you want to keep it? (Yes.) You want to give it to me? (Yes.) All this? OK, and this one? (Yes.) Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, my sister. You were not in the picture. It’s special. It’s special. (That one is special.) She says it’s special, special. My sister, she’s very sweet. She always says things very nice and positive, loving and kind. She was always very, very loving, sissy to my mother. I never could be like that. She was always very hugging and loving and caressing my mother. Always, “Oh I love her, she’s so nice,” and all that to my mother. I thought, “How come I never did that?” Yeah, I was never… I never did that. I never did anything like that. She was always very, very loving, and clinging to mother and make her feel so good. I said, "My God, she did a better job than I." She’d always come and caress my mother, “Oh, I love her this, I love her that. Oh mother, you’re beautiful, you’re this and that. I love so much, so much.” I never did this kind of thing to Ma and Dad. My God! Good, good girl. And she does that to the dog also, her husband also. Everybody loves her. It would be better if she be a Master and I… More sweet, everybody would love her. Maybe better. I don’t know why God picked me. Sorry you don’t have a better Master, sorry for you. She’s very sweet, very, very sweet. I haven’t seen anybody so sweet like her like that, with mother, with mother at least. I don’t know how sweet she is with him, but… with my mother. I wish I could have been like that. When I met her before, she was always very sweet. She knows how to talk sweetly and positively. Very sweet person. You’re always like that? (Yes, Master.) She’s the best in my family. I’m glad we have one, at least, in the family. (Even at the last moment before he died, he still asked for his son-in-law only…) Yeah, I know. OK. I know. My father, she says, my father loved this brother very much. It’s actually brother-in-law, but he’s just like… He stayed with our family so I call him brother. I don’t think he’s a brother-in-law, I just think he’s a brother. And my father loved him very much. Even the last moment before he died, he looked for him, he called for him. He asked for him. He loved him very much, so he’s like family. I’m glad he had such a son, finally. He always wanted a son. He never had. He had only three of us girls. Every time mother gave birth, disappointed. “How come no boy?” Only girls. All right, good. Now I’m sorry, I was a girl. If I were a boy, maybe better Master, I don’t know. (No.) No? Why not? Men, they deal with stress better. Some hormone arises. What is it they call that? (Testosterone.) Testosterone. Yes. The men, when they are stressed, or they’re angry, or they’re vexed, or they’re excited, or they’re challenged, they produce more of this… Testosterone. Testosterone. Whatever “terone” that is. And that makes them even more energetic, powerful, and they live, they thrive on it. On the contrary, we women, we also produce that if we do similar to men’s job, if we’re stressed, and then it’s bad for us. It’s not compatible to a woman’s body to have that kind of hormone arise within us. So if I were a man, you’d probably have a better Master, no? (No.) Never scold you. Or maybe like my sister, always love, love so much. Does she behave that way with you too, or she is controlling? You don’t dare say it? It’s OK, I understand. I understand. I asked him if she is also sweet like that to him or controls him, he doesn’t dare say anything. I say, “I understood.” Don’t dare to say, so I understood. It’s OK, we keep it… OK, never mind. But you know, if she controls you, that’s normal. We women, very smart. We know what’s the best. OK. It’s good then. They’re good together.

Buddhist Stories: Cinca the Brahmin Girl, Part 3 of 5

Many Indian people don't go to Gangotri, the source of the Ganges River, where the ice melts and becomes the water of the Ganges. The source of the Ganges River, I went there, bathed in it. I told you already. I count “one, two, three,” jump in and jump out, because it's too frozen. Even in May it's still frozen. Now. “On the following day, the monks began a discussion in the Hall of Truth.” Just like the hall of meditation where the Master always comes and teaches and preaches, where the Buddha comes and preaches to the multitude, they call it the Hall of Truth. “‘Brethren…’” They talk among themselves, the monks say to themselves, like brothers. “‘Brothers, Ciñcā Mānavikā, because she falsely accused the Possessor of Eminent Virtues…’” Meaning the Buddha. This is one of His titles also. “‘…the Foremost Recipient of Offerings, the Supremely Exalted, came to her utter ruin.’” Meaning this woman, she accused the Buddha, the Enlightened One, the Tathāgata, the Supreme Virtue, etc. They’re praising the Buddha with different titles. So, therefore, she came to utter ruin. “The Master,” the Buddha, “approached and asked them, ‘Monks, what are you sitting here now and talking about?’ So when they told Him, He said, ‘Monks, this is not the first time she has falsely accused me and come to utter ruin herself. She did the same thing in a previous state of existence also.’ Having thus spoken, He said, ‘Unless a king discerns clearly fault on the part of another, after himself investigating carefully all the facts, both small and great, he should not inflict punishment.’” Meaning, you should not judge before you really thoroughly research about any matter, the facts. That's all. “So saying, He related in detail this Mahā Paduma Jātaka,” the story of the past of this woman in connection with Him in a former life. Are you OK? You want to continue tomorrow? (No.) (Yes.) So tired. You all right? (No, no. We’re OK.) We have some high chairs outside. Could you please get me a high chair like that? Then you could sit in the corner. Give me a high chair outside. You know one of those chairs that we put in the kitchen. Small one is good enough, just so that he can sit more comfortably. I feel your discomfort. I do feel that. Two chairs for the two elderly… (No, no, one only.) One only? (I sit…) One only. (He's the only [one who] feels…) Yeah, of course, of course. Everybody's different. Bodies are different, age different, reaction different. So we cannot measure everybody the same. If he sits in the corner where you sit, then no disturbing. He changes, OK. It’s coming, coming. The chair is coming. OK, so we continue with the story of the past, how this woman in a former life also did the same to the Buddha. So she kept going up, slandered Him, and went back to hell. And then after cleaning up the sin, went back up again, and did similar to the Buddha if He came back to life. The same with Devadatta. This is the thing. People are doing good things in this life or doing bad things in this life. Yeah, it's OK. Why don't you take the round chair instead? Come here, here, anyway. Is this chair safe? I saw it broken. (No.) OK, come, come, come. Are you really OK? (Yes, OK.) All right, good. You're a tough guy, tough guy. Corner, corner, corner. Yeah, like that. Be careful with this spiritual equipment down there. Heavenly ears (earphones for translation). Careful, careful with the equipment. OK, good, good. That's it. Buddha, go up to your dais. I'm sorry for your inconvenience. (Thank You.) Yes, you are very welcome, my love. You’re very welcome. Sorry. I should have taken care earlier, but I thought you're a tough guy. We used to have chairs and sofa and everything here, but no room anymore. It’s not like my house is uncivilized like this. We had a table, dining table, chairs, sofa, bed for me and for dogs. Now all gone, all gone, all gone out. In the evening, you can sit on some of the beds for the boys, and let all the boys go down on the floor, and sit there. A big bed, so even if you fall down, it doesn't matter. So it's easier for your legs. There was another person before, French, oh no, Togo. He also had a problem, looked similar to you. So now… So the Buddha related… Relate, right? No. Relay or relate? Tell, recount… No. “Raconte.” How to say “raconte” in English? (Tell.) Tell? So simple? There’s a more elegant word than that? So the Buddha told the story now of the past life with this woman. “At one time, Ciñcā Mānavikā…” This is a story of the past, titled “The Lewd Woman and the Youth.” “At that time, it appears Ciñcā Mānavikā was reborn as one of the chief consorts of the king, fellow-wife of the mother of the future Buddha.” A long time ago. “Prince Mahā Paduma.” At one time, the Buddha was the prince in another country. A long time before He became Buddha, He was also a prince, but in another lifetime, another country. His name is Prince Mahā Paduma. “She invited the Great Being to lie with her.” Meaning, the prince. At that time, they called him the Great Being, referring to the future Buddha. At that time, he wasn't a Buddha, the prince. So this woman, she wanted to seduce the prince, her stepson actually, to have a relationship with her, physical relationship with her, to lie down with her. “And when he refused to do so, she disfigured her own body with her own hands, faked sickness, and told the king, ’Your son brought me to this pass because I would not lie with him.’” She told the opposite story, understand? Yeah. Women! “The king, hearing this, was filled with rage, and straightaway flung the Great Being…” Meaning, the future Buddha, the prince, at that time, “…down the Robbers’ Cliff. The deity dwelling in the mountain cared for him, and placed him safe and sound with the hood of the King of the Dragons. The King of the Dragons carried him to the abode of the dragons and honored him by conferring upon him half of his kingly power.” Wow. So kind! (Yes.) Dragons, people fear them, thinking they’re bad, they breathe fire. They're so kind to the prince because he's a good boy. You see, when you’re good, even animals or dragons, or fierce beings, they're kind to you. Right. Kingly power even. Maybe gave him half of the kingdom and some of his magical power. “After the Great Being…” meaning the prince at that time, and this future Buddha. “After the Great Being had dwelt there for a year, he conceived a desire to adopt the life of an ascetic. Accordingly, he went to the Himalaya country.” Oh! Himalaya country, you know where it is? Just to test. You know where the Himalaya country is? No? (India.) India. Only you know? Do you know, two of you? I thought you did not know. (Of course. No, of course we know.) I thought the Indians didn't know where the Himalaya is, so I just tested. Just for fun; I know you know. I know, I know where the Himalaya is. I know the Gangotri. I know everything, some. I know something that the Indian people don't know. Many Indian people don't go to Gangotri, the source of the Ganges River, where the ice melts and becomes the water of the Ganges. The source of the Ganges River, I went there, bathed in it. I told you already. I count “one, two, three,” jump in and jump out, because it's too frozen. Even in May it's still frozen. The water just melts directly from the ice, and around is still snowing everywhere. It doesn't snow, but the snow is still there. It takes a long time to melt because it’s very thick snow in the Himalaya, especially where the Ganges River, the source, the head of the Ganges River. That water is so clean. I thought I’d follow all the Indians who believe that if you bathe in the Ganges River once, or wash yourself, then your sins are all washed. I just make sure that I do it three times. Because it’s very cold. No, no… I don't see anybody dip themselves in the Ganges River there. Only I did it. Everybody looked. “Oh!” The Indians wrapped themselves in a blanket. “Oh!” And they just used some water, dab, dab, dab, dab, dab… like that. And then they left. They believed their sins are gone. I did not believe sins are gone so fast. So I did it three times. And when you come out of the river of water, you feel like your body expands, and like many flowers open, blooming from your skin. And I did it again and again, three times, just to make sure. Everything good is three, right? They say. So I made sure my sins were gone. I wasn't sure but just to be safe. Oh, man! When I came back from that trip, one of the Indian Master, Sawan Singh's disciples he was very old already with a beard, long, like, as much as the Master, and he looked like a Master himself, senior disciple of the older generation. He came and prostrated in front of me. I was so scared. I was reading some discarded piece of newspaper in English. I don't know who dropped it there, I was reading. He came and touched my feet to his head. Oh, I was so scared, I ran away. I wonder if it's because of the Himalaya experience, the Ganges River, that they knew I went there. They knew I went there. Maybe because of that. (Is it Charan Singh?) No, no, no. No. (Disciple of…) Disciple of… in a Sawan ashram. So it must be the disciple of Sawan Singh, because he was old, very old. But maybe a disciple of Kirpal Singh, I don't know. But he was very old already. I was only around 30. And his beard was so white and long, and his head, hair white, and he's very dignified, like a Master himself. An old disciple, older generation than me. I could call him like grandpa. Grandpa-disciple or grandpa-master, not the same generation. Not the same Master at that time. So anyway, maybe because of that, Indian people, they respect people who went to the Himalaya, Gangotri, and still survive and come back. Because some people don't come back. It's dangerous. They say that. I didn't feel any danger, but they say it’s very dangerous to go there. If anyone can go there once in their lifetime, then they can boast about it, and everybody knows about it and… Is that true? (Yes.) But why? It's dangerous? Or because the… (No, Ganges is supposed to be a very blessed river.) Supposed to be what? (Blessed river. Ganges is supposed to be a very blessed river.) (Divine river.) Huh? A divine river. Pure. (Pure. Divine.) Meaning, if you went there and take a bath, then you became purified. (Yes.) Like a saint. (Right.) OK. I should go again and then back again and then more and more pure all the time. (No, we are coming here for that only.) Oh, God. Not the Gangotri? (No, no.) All right then. I'm not a river, OK? (No, not river.) In case you're mistaken. (Ocean of Love.) OK, OK. Anyway… All right. So the Buddha said that his stepmother, the queen, the queen stepmother of him, at one time, long time ago when he was a prince, accused him falsely for sleeping with… no, of wanting to sleep with her. And he refused. So she beat herself up, tore her clothes, to make the king jealous, and feel like his son did something bad to his wife, his second wife, something like that. He had many concubines anyway. So what's wrong with losing only one. He had so many wives that some of them he never even knew where she lived or what she did in the palace. Most kings are like that, they have many, many concubines. So maybe they have three wives, main wives, and the rest are concubines they don't even know. Concubine, he doesn't even know them. Never had a chance to talk to them or touch them, nothing. But nobody is allowed to marry them. Nobody is allowed to touch them, either. They’re, like, finished. That's the old time. So now the king threw him down the cliff. But the celestial beings and the dragons saved him, saved him and cared for him. But in one year after, he wanted to become a monk, ascetic monk. “So accordingly, he went to the Himalayan country.” You know, right? India. So, everything good happens in India. How come he kept being reborn again, again and again in India? India seems to be the cradle of spiritual spirits, spiritual lineage, spiritual Masters, somehow. I don't know why. Probably it's a good place to be. Because Indian people, they respect so much the Saints. And they have freedom of religion. They even worship stones, cows, rats, snakes. So they harm no one. So if I go to India, I’d probably have all the great honor, never slandered, nothing. Because even the rat can be a guru there, so why not me? I was thinking about that. In other countries, some people believe, some people not, some people pray, some people slander. But in India, I’d be safe. So one day if you don't find me anymore here, then you’ll know. You’ll know. You’ll know why, and you’ll know where I will be. Indian people, they’re so pure. You know they have temples for rats. (Yes.) They feed rats. And that temple, one is very famous. There're many… a lot of rats live there, and they drink together in one bowl of milk. They give them milk every day. And the humans come and even drink with the rats. Yeah, for blessing, like Prasad. Just like you want me to give you (vegan) cakes, candies. The rats, if they drink together same milk in the bowl with the rats, they feel (Good.) blessed. Understand? Yes. And then they also wish to be born again as a rat. Yeah! Some people worship… Some worship snakes and wish to be born as a snake. You don't know. Indian people, they are very liberal. They respect all beings. They even worship Ganesh, which is an elephant. Is Ganesh an elephant, or a monkey? (Yes. Ganesh, son of Lord Shiva.) Monkey or elephant? (Elephant.) Elephant. And they also… There’s Hanuman. They also worship a monkey. (Monkey.) Yeah. Hanuman. You see? (Yes.) You see that? (Yes.) And here, they don't even worship anybody. Not to talk about monkey or elephant, they kill them and eat them. If the Buddha is born now, maybe He’d also become soup. Who knows? If they don't have any more monkey and elephant or rat to kill or to put in a laboratory for torturing, tests, maybe they put the Buddha in there. Who knows? Scary humans.

Buddhist Stories: Cinca the Brahmin Girl, Part 2 of 5

This is a terrible sin. To slander someone and dishonor his reputation is just as bad as killing him, or worse, especially when that person is an enlightened Saint and doing nothing harmful to no one. Just preaching good and reminding people to do good, or teaching them a liberation path. That's why. They called her to come because somebody advised them that this woman, if you engage her, you can defame the Buddha. But they also didn't know what to do. So they just called her there, and then she stood there, and they stood there, and they didn't know what to say. So finally… She kept asking many times, so they said, “OK, do whatever you can to defame the Gautama, the Buddha.” So she said she will do it. Woman, clever. “From that time on, she employed all her skills in the art of a woman to affect her purpose.” “When the residents of Sravasti were returning from Jetavana, after listening to the Dharma from the Buddha, she would put on a cloak of red color, and bearing perfumes and garlands in her hands, would walk in the direction of Jetavana.” The followers and the disciples of the Buddha were walking from Jetavana, to go home. And she, this woman, so-called nun, wearing a red coat, meaning very, very opulent, very eye-catching clothes, and perfume and flowers, and decorating, make-up herself, was walking the opposite direction to Jetavana, to where the Buddha resided. And you probably understood already what's going on. “And then the people, of course asked her, ‘Where are you going at this time of day?’” “And she said, ‘What business of yours is it where I am going?’” Saying, “Mind your own business.” She didn't even answer. “And then she would reply that. And then she would spend the night near Jetavana, at the monastery of the sectarians. And early in the following morning, when throngs of lay disciples were coming out of the city for the purpose of rendering the morning greeting to the Buddha, she would wend her way back and re-enter the city.” As if she stayed the whole night in Jetavana Park. But she didn't. She stayed in the temple of these sectarian, jealous teachers. “So people asked again, ‘Where have you spent the night?’” people asked her. “So she said, ‘It's not your business where I spent my night.’ And then she just left again. So, after the lapse of a month and a half, she kept doing like this. Whenever they asked her this question, she would reply, ‘I spent the night at Jetavana alone with the monk Gautama in the Perfumed Chamber.’” Perfumed Chamber is the place where they built specially for the Buddha alone to stay, apart from other monks and people. So she said she spent the night with Gautama the Buddha in His Perfumed Room. So, after one month and a half, then she replied like that. Before she just said, “No, none of your business.” But after a while, five, six weeks, she said, “I spent the night with the Buddha.” She didn't say, “The Buddha.” She said, “Gautama, the monk.” “And by her answer she caused doubts and misgivings to spring up in the minds of those who were still worldlings.” Meaning the ones who were not truly enlightened yet. They were not very highly enlightened and not very diligent in practice, in order to perceive inside knowledge. Not just by hearing, but knowing intuitively inside. Or by vision, or by wisdom, knowing that it's not true or it is true. So they listened to her. This kind of people, easily swayed, faith is not firm. Enlightenment little, ego big, ignorance bigger. So they kind of doubted now. They felt like believing in her, something, somewhat. So these people were still “worldlings,” meaning they were not saintly yet. Even though they were monks, even though they followed the Buddha, but they were not above the world level yet, not above human level yet. They call them “worldlings.” So these worldlings had doubts in their minds. “So they said to themselves…” But who wouldn't? Who wouldn't? It is too obvious, right? The way she was doing, was too obvious. Who wouldn't believe, right? Doesn't matter saint or not saint. Maybe people were just thinking like that. “So they said to themselves, ‘Is this true, or is this false?’ When three or four months had gone by, she wrapped her belly about with bandages, to create the impression that she was pregnant, and dressing herself in a scarlet cloak. She went about, saying, ‘I have conceived a child by the monk Gautama.’ Thus did she deceive utter simpletons.” You know, stupid people. “When eight months or nine months had gone by, she fastened a disc of wood to her belly, drew a cloak over it, and produced swellings all over her body by pounding her hands and feet and back with the jawbone of an ox, and pretending to be physically exhausted. Then she went one evening to the Hall of Truth and stood before the Tathāgata,” meaning the Buddha. “There in His gloriously adorned Seat of Truth, sat the Tathāgata teaching the Dharma. And standing there before Him, Ciñcā Mānavikā opened her lips and reviled Him, saying, ‘Mighty monk, mighty is the throng to which You teach the Dharma. Sweet is Your voice, soft are Your lips. Nevertheless, You are the one by whom I have conceived a child, and the time of my delivery is near at hand. But in spite of all this, You make no effort to provide a lying-in chamber for me, nor do You offer to provide me with ghee or oil, and such other things as I need. And failing Yourself to attend to Your duty…’” You know, as a father. “‘Neither do You say to any one of Your supporters, the king of Kosala, or Anāthapiṇḍika or Visākhā, Your eminent female disciple: “Do for this young woman what should be done for her.” You never said anything like that. You know well enough how to take Your pleasure, but You do not know how to look after the child You have begotten.’ So, thus, she was reviling the Buddha in the midst of the congregation,” in the public, at that time, in the public. “Even as a woman with a mass of dung in her hand might seek to defile the face of the moon.” Maybe just useless, that's what they mean. How can you defile the face of the moon? Today is a good story because we have Moon Festival. (The moon.) I did not think like that, but it's a proper story. Moon Festival, moon story. “So the Tathāgata stopped His discourse, and like a lion’s roar, He cried out, He yelled out.” Normally the Buddha doesn't yell, but He probably was upset or angry at these lies. So He yelled like, He roared like a lion, saying, “Sister, as to whether what you have said is true or false, that is something which only you and I know.” He didn't even deny it. But this is the thing, Buddha’s behavior. They behave like that, very noble. He didn't say, “No, you tell lies, you woman, you’re wicked, you do not say things like this about me. You know it's not true.” He didn't say that. He said, “Whatever you said, true or not true, only you and I know.” He meant to her that she knew it was not true. And He knew it was not true. But He didn't deny. He didn't, kind of like, trash her or anything. So noble, in front of the whole assembly of lay disciples, monks and nuns and kings and everybody, He said nothing like that. “So she said, ‘Yes, mighty monk, but who is to decide between the truth and the falsehood of what is known only to you and to me?’” She meant: How can we tell anybody else? Everybody else should know about that. “So at that moment, Śakra…” Śakra, the god, the Lord of the 33 gods in the 33 Pleasure Heaven, “his seat suddenly became hot in Heaven.” It’s just a sign of something wrong in the world, some connection with him somehow. So he felt heated, his seat. “So, therefore, he pondered the cause and became aware of the following: Ciñcā Mānavikā is falsely accusing the Tathāgata.” “Tathāgata” is one of the titles of the Buddha, meaning, “Thus come.” “So he said to himself,” “the god Śakra said to himself, ‘I will clear up this matter.’ So he set out with four deities, four of his assistants from Heaven. And these four deities, his assistants, turned themselves…” Stretch your legs, man, stretch. Turn, stretch correctly. Don't worry about the Indian custom with the Guru and stretching leg in front of the Guru. Nothing. Don't worry about it. I'm not Indian, so you're free. In the Indian custom, you don't stretch your… (Yes.) You don't put your legs toward the Guru. You don't sleep with your legs, your foot, toward the Guru. You don't sit in the same height seat as the Guru. Something like that. But I said, “I'm not Indian.” I'm not a Mataji in India. So you're free. You stretch your legs wherever you want. Be comfy, because it's not comfortable sitting long on the floor. I'm sorry we cannot provide any more than this. (It’s OK.) Yeah, all right. And also we age, you and I age. And when we age, the body complains, quietly, but very loudly. And here it’s a little bit humid in this season, so your bones will feel a little trouble. I put two boxes of medicine, small boxes of medicine outside next to the boiler machine, (Yes.) where you boil your tea. You use it to rub. You rub whenever you like and then return it there so other people can use it. There are instructions inside. OK? (Yes.) “So Śakra, the god, he set forth with his four deities, four assistant deities, the Heavenly assistants,” his secretaries. And probably his drivers, and his housekeeper, and another sub-secretary or shadow secretary, what they call it in England: shadow secretary. “Shadow,” sounds not very trustworthy, is it? In America, they say vice secretary. But shadow secretary... (Shadow.) And even shadow minister. Oh, I thought this is... What a name. It sounds dubious, sounds scary. All right then. So he went down with the four shadow sub-gods. And then these four deities, or devas, or whatever, they changed themselves, by magic power, into mice, rats. “And with one bite of their teeth…” They came down. They came down from Heaven, all the way down to where the Buddha sat, and they turned themselves into mice. “And then with one bite of their teeth, these little mice severed the cords with which the disc of wood was fastened to the belly of the woman. At that moment, the wind blew up the cloak which was wrapped around her, and the disc of wood fell upon her feet, cutting off the toes of both her feet as well. Thereupon the multitude cried out, ‘A hag is reviling the Supreme Enlightened One!’ So they spat on her head, and taking clods of earth and sticks in their hands, drove her out of Jetavana,” where the Buddha was. The Buddha didn't say anything, but it just happened like that. “As she passed out of sight of the Tathāgata, the great earth split apart, an abyss opened under her feet, and flames shot up from Avīci hell. Thus, she was swallowed up, enveloped as it were in a scarlet blanket, such as is presented by a wealthy family, and reborn in the Avīci hell.” Avīci hell is the hell that is non-stop punishment. You don't have one second of rest. They punish you forever and forever and forever. And it could be a very, very long time, like eternity. And this is called also like a non-stop, non-interrupted hell, one of the non-interrupted hells. Meaning, whatever punishment they meted out to you, you have it all day long, 24 hours, every second of the day. They make you die, they make you suffer, and then you revive again. And then you live again, and then continue again and again, and again and again. This is the worst hell of all, without any repose in between. It’s reserved for the real deep criminals. The bad, the worst. It's not that the Buddha wanted it that way. It's just her karma drew her down there, not the Buddha. The Buddha never wanted to punish anybody at all. Not even did the Śakra god want that. Just the karma draws people to where they belong. This is terrible, to slander the innocent Buddha. That's why. The slanderers who slander normal people, yes, you will also reap punishment. But to slander an enlightened Saint, this is the worst you can do to yourself. So she went direct, immediately, with flames even, shooting up, to drag her down to the Avīci hell. “From that time, the gain and honor of the sectarians decreased even further.” They wanted to gain more, but now they got less. “But the offerings presented to the Master,” Buddha, “increased more and more.” Of course, now His fame was more than before. So actually, she was helping the Buddha. And the sectarians, in a way were helping the Buddha. But as you sow, so shall you reap. They did not intend to help the Buddha that way. They intended to harm Him. Therefore, they had to reap the consequences like that. And this is not yet to do with the other teachers yet. It's just the girl only. Because she's the one, herself, thought of this scheme. They also did not tell her what to do, or they also didn't know what to do to defame the Buddha. But she herself, though being a nun in the Brahmin sect, is also very noble, thought of this way to really slander Him, degrade Him in front of the multitude. This is a terrible sin. To slander someone and dishonor his reputation is just as bad as killing him, or worse, especially when that person is an enlightened Saint and doing nothing harmful to no one. Just preaching good and reminding people to do good, or teaching them a liberation path. That's why.

Buddhist Stories: Cinca the Brahmin Girl, Part 1 of 5

They didn't understand what the Buddha truly was. They didn’t know His power. Their preachings (were) just from outside, telling people, maybe repeating from the Vedas or from some other scripture. But the Buddha is the inner realization, powerful from inside. Can bless people, can save people, can liberate souls, even from hell. Different. Let's go Buddha business, or… My God, just eating all day. Only because today is festival, OK? (Yes.) Don't expect this every day. You don't come here for this, right? (Yes.) Man, I never know. Maybe you specially came for Moon Festival. You wait until the last minute. Come here just on time to eat the (vegan) cakes. The Buddha, when He was alive He had also been blamed for things that were not true. You want to know about that? (Yes.) Because I had some bad names, because I thought I was born in Âu Lạc (Vietnam), just a small Aulacese (Vietnamese) woman. And Âu Lạc (Vietnam) is not, like, famous or anything about anything. All you heard about Âu Lạc (Vietnam) is war and refugees and poverty and all that. Just recently, they rise up already, international standard. Even they are in World Trade, how to say… (Organization. WTO.) World Trade Organization, before even Russia. At that time Russia was not admitted, Âu Lạc (Vietnam) already inside. You don't have any translation? You understood English? You understand? Oh, you have? Good, good. And I had no back support, nothing. I was all alone, I went (at) it all alone. If I was born in India and all that, then they would call me Guru Mataji, Maharaji Mataji, Babu, Baba. Sami, Samiji. (Swami.) Yeah, Swami, Swami Maharaji, whatever. But I was born in Âu Lạc (Vietnam), so I had nothing to be proud of. At that time, even the war was just recently fresh and Âu Lạc (Vietnam) was still embargoed. Now it's better. The country is much, much better. And the government is open, more open so people can come in and out of the country, foreigners and Aulacese (Vietnamese) alike. It's very good. Bravo for that. It's even easier to go out of the country for doing tourism now than during the war. So the Communist regime in Âu Lạc (Vietnam) is not so bad, very open. Younger generation, open. (The) war's over. All right, I’ll read you this story. It’s called “Ciñcā, the Brahmin Girl.” Whoever gives false speech, he transgresses one principle, meaning not telling lies. We have five principles, main principles, like, shall not kill or harm anyone else, and not tell lies, and not steal, and not commit illicit sex, and not take intoxicants. So, telling lies is one of the main principles that we transgress if we tell lies. We should tell the truth only. So, this story was given by the Buddha while He was in residence at Jetavana with reference to Ciñcā Mānavikā. Stretch your legs, stretch your legs. Oh, I forgot. Stretch it, stretch it. Oh, God, ouch, ouch, I'm also getting old like you two. Oh! My knees are telling me that they exist. (Let me give You a massage, Master.) No. Why bother? It’s too much trouble. What if you’re gone tomorrow? I’ll get used to it and no one to give me a massage. I’ll keep looking and find no one. It’s troublesome! This probably is told by Ananda also. Most of the stories were told by Ananda and it says, “Thus I have heard.” But this one, translated, he omitted that. It just says, “This instruction was given by the Teacher.” He doesn't even say the Buddha. What a translation! Of course, Buddha means “Teacher,” “Master,” but different. Wise, compassionate, powerful, not just any teacher. So he should not translate it as “Teacher” here. He should have said just “Buddha” then. “Buddha” or “Master.” Like, for example, Guru Nanak would have been much different from any other Sikh guru at that time. Or Krishna would be a different guru than any other Hindu master at that time, or teacher at that time. There is a big difference. But the inside is different. The outside doesn’t look different; therefore, people cannot tell. Unless you are initiated by that guru, and then you can tell. You can tell because (of) inside experience. OK, this one is about a girl from a Brahmin family. “For the first period after Enlightenment, the disciples of the Master,” means the Buddha, “multiplied and innumerable gods and men entered on the plane of the Noble Ones.” Spiritual practice. “And as the glory of His virtues became widely known, rich gain and high honor were bestowed upon Him. But, as for the sectarians, lost to them were gain and honor alike.” Meaning the Buddha has become more and more famous. But the sectarians, the non-Buddhist practitioners outside, lost. They lost their fame, they lost their gain, they lost the trust from their disciples, maybe the public at large, because they all flocked to the Buddha then. So, “Even as the fireflies lost their brilliance before the coming of the sun, and they gathered together in the street and cried out, ‘Is the monk, Gautama, the only Buddha? We also are Buddhas!’” They proclaimed like that. They felt so frustrated, disappointed because the Buddha became so much famous and many people followed Him. And people also left them. “They said, ‘We are also the Buddhas. Does that alone which is given to him, yield abundant fruit?’” They’re asking questions. “That which is given to us brings also abundant fruit.” Meaning don't just give offerings to the Buddha, give offerings to us, you’ll also have merit just the same. That's what they meant. OK, jealousy. Also ignorance. They didn't understand what the Buddha truly was. They didn’t know His power. Their preachings (were) just from outside, telling people, maybe repeating from the Vedas or from some other scripture. But the Buddha is the inner realization, powerful from inside. Can bless people, can save people, can liberate souls, even from hell. Different. These other teachers, they just talk, they just preach, but they don't have enough power to liberate people. They don't have the inner realization to manifest true wisdom. That is the difference. But they don't know that. So you can't even blame them. They're ignorant. They did not understand the true inner power of the Buddha. They just think, “He looks like me, He looks like us. He also shaves His head and wears the monk’s robe and goes begging like us. So, what's the difference? Why make offering and praise to the Buddha, and not to us?” This is similar like that. Because they really did not understand. They probably did not mean bad, they just did not understand what Buddha, what an enlightened Saint, really means. “Therefore, you, all people, give alms to us, bestow honor upon us.” Means go praise them and (make) offering to them. “With such words as these did they appeal to the multitude, but for all their appeal they got neither gain nor honor.” They did go out and make propaganda for themselves, but they got nothing out of that. “Accordingly, they met together in secret and considered within themselves, ‘By what means can we cast reproach upon the monk, Gautama, in public, and so put an end to the gain and honor bestowed upon Him?’” They were thinking of some wicked scheme, trying to defame the Buddha, in secret, these people, these mundane sectarian teachers, who had no wisdom, no enlightenment, no power, just wanted fame and name. Maybe like one of you, one of the people you mentioned before. Maybe some of them. Of course, everywhere in every country there are such people. It takes some great affinity and sincerity in order to discern who is who. Because outside looks the same anyway, right? Outside looks the same, all humans look the same. I look like her and she looks like me. I look like her, and she looks like me. The hair only, but she's a Quebecois. Quebecois. Yeah, Quebecois. Qeebec or Quebec? (Quebec.) Quebecois. They speak different French. I had some friends, I met some of them before, in Cayman. They're Quebecois. They said they spoke French, but I understood nothing. They did speak French, it's just a different accent. You don't understand a thing what they are saying. I thought they’re speaking Greek or something. “Now, at that time there lived in Sravasti a certain wandering nun named Ciñcā Mānavikā.” A nun. Mark this. Not a normal girl, a nun. “She possessed such surpassing beauty and loveliness.” Wow! “A very celestial nymph was she. From her body proceeded forth rays of light even.” Wow! She's not a normal nun. She had some good aura, some spiritual gain already. So, listen. “Now, a certain harsh counselor made this proposal to them,” to this group of jealous teachers, sectarian teachers. “They said, ‘OK. If we engage the assistance of this woman, we shall be able to cast reproach upon the monk Gautama.’” “Gautama” means the…? (Buddha.) The Buddha. They did not call Him the Buddha or Master respectfully. They were just jealous. They called Him by His worldly name, Gautama, the Prince Gautama. But you see, I thought because I was a Vietnamese (Aulacese) woman, born in Vietnam (Âu Lạc) and a small woman, don't look anything special, so some people don't like. But the Buddha also, you see, had problems. Jesus also had problems. Buddha was even a prince and He forsook all His kingdoms and richness and 500 wives, or some more, and His winter palace, summer palace, just to become a monk, to seek enlightenment. Still, they thought He just wanted fame and gain. People are not all very reasonable because of ignorance. So now, they wanted to defame Him before all of His disciples, in the public even, disciples and followers. So they were trying to get this woman to do just that. Because this woman, though she was a nun and had light even, and she was beautiful, beautiful and lovely. So all these sectarian teachers agreed to this proposal. “Ciñcā Mānavikā went to the monastery of the sectarians, saluted them and stood waiting. But the sectarians had nothing to say to her. So thereupon she said, ‘What fault do you find in me?’” She was thinking they brought her there to scold her or something. “This question she repeated three times. Then she said, ‘Noble sirs, I appeal to you for an answer. Noble sirs, what fault do you find in me?’” Means, “What's wrong? What wrong do you think about me? Why do you not speak to me?” I wonder why. I think they were too ashamed to say anything. They didn't know what to do. “So at the end they said, ‘Sister…’” They explained to her. “They said, ‘Sister, don’t you know the monk Gautama, who goes about doing us harm?’” They’re also the same sect, same Brahmin. So maybe that's why they said He goes around doing “us” harm, meaning, including her. “‘Depriving us of gain and honor alike?’ So the woman said, ‘No, sir, I do not know Him. But is there anything I can do to help you in this matter?’ So they said…” The teachers, the sectarian teachers said, “‘Sister, if you wish us well, summon all your resources, contrive to cast reproach upon the monk Gautama, and so put an end to the gain and honor that people bestow upon Him.’ So Ciñcā Mānavikā replied, ‘Very well, noble sirs, I will take all the responsibility. Have no anxiety as to the outcome.’” Meaning, “Consider it done.” What a nun, and what monks they are, the whole group of them. “So then she departed.” “From that time on…” Because they called her to come because somebody advised them that this woman, if you engage her, you can defame the Buddha. But they also didn't know what to do. So they just called her there, and then she stood there, and they stood there, and they didn't know what to say.

The Blessing of Initiation: Joyful Kitchen Gathering with Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan), Part 3 of 3

Animals. (Yes.) Animals. (Yes.) They give you messages, but sometimes you don’t get it. (No.) Sometimes like if… there may be some certain places that you stay at suddenly are infested with insects or something. They just want you to get out of there, (Wow.) then you’d need to go somewhere else better, something like that. So every being helps you in some way; they help some.So, he (Dr. Santokh Singh) did bless you. (Yes. And I was thinking and thinking [of him] and I wanted to thank him and I tried to call a number because I didn’t know he was in Canada. And I tried to call, but no one replied. Then I wrote a beautiful letter to him to thank him, that this is what happened, and that I thank you, thank you, thank you.) It was good for you. (And then I managed to… after eight months, I gave up already. I thought it was my mind playing up, I thought. Then I rang that number again, and I managed to speak to someone and then finally got to speak to him. And just spontaneously, I said, “Can I see you? Can I meet you?” And he said, “I’ll be in Pune,” he said, “I’ll be back in India and I’ll call you.” And I thought, “He is not going to call me!” I didn’t believe. But he did leave a message on my answering machine. And I bought a ticket. I’ve never ever gone alone, solo anywhere.) Yeah. (And I went there. And I stayed one week at his private home.) Yeah. (And he tested me and did…cutting the ego, I guess. And then one day, he just said, “You know, in my lifetime …” He was talking about his lifetime, deliberately to get me to wake up, right? And he said, “You know, I was so fortunate, from young, my father,” he said, “was very spiritual. I met five enlightened beings in my lifetime.”) Oh! (And he met Baba Sawan Singh.) Wow! (And he said…. He must have been in his mid-twenties, and he said when he went to see Baba Sawan Singh, and Baba Sawan Singh spoke to him for one hour and put His arm around him and took him to the door, when he was leaving and He told him, “You don’t need to worry, ever. You don’t need to worry. You are fine.” But of course, I didn’t know any of this. And then, when I was leaving on the last day, he gave me some almonds to eat, obviously blessed. I didn’t know anything. We get parshaad, which we call “parshaad” blessing in the temple. But this thing about blessed food and blessing, I didn’t know. I was born in Malaysia. I didn’t know anything, zero. So, he gave me that and he also said to me, “You will get...” It’s called knowledge, is it? Spiritual knowledge. He said. It’s called in Indian “jnan.” Jnana or jnan. And he said, “You will get that.” And he said, “You will live for 100 years.” And I just said, “No, I don’t want to live for 100 years!” Because we have heard our parents say, they don’t want to live for 100 years. He just kept quiet. And he then also… Another third thing he told me...) He blessed you, like wishing you well. (Yes, yes.) (And then when I came back and I thought, “Now what? What am I going to do? Where? What?” And so, I went to a bookshop in Melbourne, where I come from.) Don’t have to be so clear, so near to her. She will get nervous. (There is a Theosophical Society that Madame Blavatsky and all those books and all spiritual books are in that bookshop. And I went there and I thought, “Look, I’m just going to keep continue reading.” I spent about an hour looking for books, which one I’m going to read, and I picked three books. And all three books, Master, said “living Master.” The words, “living Master” were in there. And one of them was from the Sant Mat, from Baba Sawan Singh, one of the books, Baba Sawan Singh’s books. And the other one, I think it’s written by someone called Mikhail. And I picked that book up; that one is spiritual stories, a really good story about meeting an enlightened being. And another third one,) Sounds interesting. (so all three had “living Master” in it, so it was a message coming through. And then about six months after I had met Dr. Santokh Singh, I met someone in a nut shop who was wearing Master’s…) That shop, are they nuts? (They are crazy. He was buying, it was wholesale nuts. And he was wearing a photo of Yours, Master’s photo, and the owner of the shop asked him, “Who is that woman?” And I was so cheeky, from the back in the queue and I said, “It must be his wife.” And he turned around and said, “No, that’s my Master, [inner Heavenly] Light and Sound Master.”) (And I started asking him,) Light and Sound. (I said, “What is Light and Sound, can you tell me?” And then he could see that I was interested, he said, “Come to our center.” And he went to his car.) He’s a taxi driver? (Yes. He was a CP [contact person] too at the Melbourne Center. So, I must have an affinity and he was from Malaysia too, you know, so it’s funny how affinities... Anyway, he went and got me “The Key to Enlightenment book.” I went home and I straight away read it, you know, like from front to back. And I called him, “I want to meet this Master!” “Where is She? Where can I meet Her?” And he just went quiet. He said, “You just come to our center.” I think You were in a retreat at that time, but he thought I wouldn’t understand any of that. “Just come to the center.”) (And I am so full of gratitude to that man as well…) Taxi driver, yes. (To him as well and everyone. But to that elevated being that I went and saw, I am so thankful, so thankful.) Dr. Santokh Singh. (Yes, Dr. Santokh Singh. And because I felt gratitude when I was reading the scriptures, I felt so much gratitude. It was unbelievable. And so much, “Thank You, thank You!” You know, I could fill the sky and it wouldn’t be enough; that sort of thing. So, thank You, Master. Thank You so much.) Why didn’t you ask him for more teachings? (Because I think I didn’t know anything.) Yeah. (And so, I think he also knew he could only help me to a certain [point] and then) And then you have to go further by yourself. (Yes. Yes. I think he blessed me to meet You Master! 100%) Wonderful. Wonderful Master! (100%, 200%, 500%!) (84,000. 84,000%.) (Yes, 84,000.) Well, 500 is OK, because this is one of the numbers in India, very famous. 500, 2,000, (Yes.) 8,400. OK. Yeah, for your story, good storytelling. (Yes.) Yeah, very, very interesting. That’s the light. Thank you. (Because it’s so special.) I give you this, but it’s not ripe. (Oh. Thank You so much, Master. Thank You.) Thanks for your story. (Oh. Thank You.) Every being… (Gratitude to You.) every being helps you one step further. (Yes, every single person.) Even animals. (Yes.) Animals. (Yes.) They give you messages, but sometimes you don’t get it. (No.) Sometimes like if… there may be some certain places that you stay at suddenly are infested with insects or something. They just want you to get out of there, (Wow.) then you’d need to go somewhere else better, something like that. So every being helps you in some way; they help some. Even mosquitos and all that, they do give you messages. (“Ouch!”) Their messages are very strong. The messages from mosquitos are very strong. (And after I got initiated, Master, I can’t keep my mouth shut. Anybody I meet, I’m talking about Master, Master, this and that. And you know, some people, they just think that I’m crazy.) Yeah, yeah. I know that. The beginner is always like that; especially beginner. You can’t stop it. You just can’t keep it. (It’s just too much. You’re so happy, so happy. So, I see that in you too.) You want the whole world to know it. (I’m so happy, Master.) But the whole world just say, “What? Hang on, man, hang on!” (I’m so happy, Master. Like, I’m having a party inside right now. But I’m just like, relaxing, you know, trying to chill so You can eat, Master. Eat in peace.) You be normal. (Just relax.) (We look at him and we can see, we can see he is just oozing with all this energy.) He’s sizzling there and knows it. (Yes, yes, yes. So happy.) The happiness and the bliss. Stay calm, man, It’s not a rapping time. Be calm. It is like that for everybody. We’re happy because our soul’s free. At the time after initiation, your soul is free. So, all your body understands that message. All your cells and everything just got that and say, “Oh! Hoorah I’m free now! Yeah, yeah, I’m free now!” Yeah? (Yes.) So you just cannot control it. You feel just so, so full, so overflowing inside. (Yes.) You don’t know what is what. It’s good like that. It’s good. That means your soul got it. OK, guys, I have…work to do. (We’ve taken up so much of Your time, Your precious time.) I’m happy, I’m happy. (Master, thank You for retreat.) No, I’m happy to spend time with good people, and with enlightened souls. I’m also happy. I feel sorry for myself that I have to leave, not sorry that I have to stay here. And just like I love my dogs so much, I keep apologizing to them every day, every night, or every time I cannot hug them, I say, “Sorry. I don’t have a lot of time for you, but I love you forever, and you’re always in my heart, you know,” and things like that. And at night they sleep, they just want to hang around more, but I have to carry them; some, some are too big. Carry into their bed and they look at me like, “Why?” The eyes, “Why? I want to be there with You.” I say, “Sorry, really, I am really sorry.” And in fact, I’m sorry for myself that I don’t have time to spend more with such loving energy, loving beings. Of course, loving energy is fine, but with them also. You just feel love from them, and you feel so comfortable with them. And the way they love you, they make you feel like you don’t want anything else. Of course, you don’t like it when you leave that kind of feeling. You have to go and bury yourself in some other things, which doesn’t give you that much good energy. So, I actually tell them, “I’m sorry,” but I’m more sorry for myself. That’s why I told them that, I say, “I would really like to spend more time with you, you know, or we sleep together, or eat together, play together. That would be very, very, very comfortable for me. But I can’t, so I just have to go.” I say, “I have to work for all the beings.” You know, all the humans, all the animals, who need help, OK. That’s why I have to go to work, but I’m so sorry for myself also, that I don’t have the fortune to be more with you and your cuddling, enjoying your love, and your adoration, your pure heart, and stuff like that. (Thank You so much.) So, if I leave, I’m sorry, OK? (No.) also for me. (Thank You, Master. You’ve given us a lot.) All right, we’ll see each other some other time. (Thank You, Master. Thank You so much, Master.) (Thank You.) Very sorry indeed. Yeah, I don’t like this world because of that, because every party has to end and I don’t like it. In Heaven, we don’t have to end, (Yes.) and we can be together all the time. (Yes.) OK, all of you. (Thank You, Master.) See you, see you around. See you around, buddy buddy. (Thank You, Master.) Come here. Old and new, young and old. Hey, you sing so good. You could be a band, Igy Band, like Supreme Master TV Igy Band. They changed the song “Guantanamera” to “I love You, Master!” Bye-bye, guys! Thank you. (Thank You, Master. I love You, Master.) Take care of each other, OK? (OK.) I need to go to work. (OK. Thank You, Master.) Has everyone eaten the blessed food? (Yes, yes. Thank You, Master. Thank You, Master. Bye-bye. Thank You.) From that small bag, everyone takes a bite. OK? (OK. Thank You, Master. Thank You, Master. Goodbye. Goodbye.)

The Blessing of Initiation: Joyful Kitchen Gathering with Supreme Master Ching Hai (vegan), Part 2 of 3

Very difficult in this world to understand. Very difficult. (Yes. So, thank You ever so much.) This world has so many distractions. Yes. And it’s clouded the mind, so people really cannot understand anything. Even the Bible, many things are so clear, but people still don’t see it. Even some of the elevated Bible scholars, they also just read, and sometimes, interpret it wrongly even.(It is like a prayer. OK, I’ll sing. This is a hymn from the Sikh scriptures.) OK. (“Oh Lord Almighty’s humble devotee, Oh Lord Almighty’s humble devotee, Enlightened Master, True Primal Being I offer my humble prayer to You, Oh Great Guru. I offer my humble prayer to You, Oh, Great Guru!” I can’t sing.) Why not? Can! (You can’t sing? Your voice is there.) (“I am just a lowly being…” I can’t believe I’m singing to You, Master.) Why not? Am I so scary? (No, no, no!)(“I am just a lowly being seeking Your refuge, Oh True Guru, Please have mercy on me and enlighten me with the Naam. I am just a lowly being seeking Your refuge, Oh True Guru, Please have mercy on me and enlighten me with the Naam. Oh Divine Guru… Oh Divine Guru, please grant me the Name of the Lord Almighty. Please grant me the Name of the Lord Almighty, Please grant me the Name of the Lord Almighty. Oh Lord Almighty’s humble devotee, Enlightened Master, True Primal Being I offer my humble prayer to You, Oh Great Guru. I am just a lowly being seeking Your refuge, Oh True Guru, Please have mercy on me and enlighten me with the Naam. I am just a lowly being seeking Your refuge, Oh True Guru, Please have mercy on me and enlighten me with the Naam.” Now this is from the Sikh scriptures, and I would never, ever have understood this until I got initiated by our great Master. And what it says is that we are just like little, little small creatures, and Oh Lord, Oh Great Master, please give me the initiation, the Naam, [The Name.] which is the [Lord’s] Name [The Naam.] and enlighten me. So, I would never ever have understood, and I hope anyone who is listening out there who knows the scriptures or who doesn’t or who have read it, please, please, please hear this, that I didn’t know either and the best thing that you could ever do in your life is to get the Naam from a great living Master like my greatest, greatest Master of all time. Thank You, Master. Thank You so much.) You really sing with your heart. (Thank You so much.) Everybody, there’s so much crying there. You sing with your heart, people are touched. (I love You so much. Thank You, Master.) Love you too, kid. You are not a small, little creature; you are big. You’re big in my eyes, you’re big in my heart. Lucky I have a big heart. (Yes, thank You, thank You for Your big heart.) Otherwise, I can’t contain such a great being like you. (No, no, no, no.) You are Indian; you are very devoted. Indian people are like that. (For me, I’m so touched, I am so grateful that I can now understand.) Yeah, understand the scripture or whatever, yes. (I used to sing. I used to sing, before. I love singing, but I never understood it the way [I do] now. I don’t understand a lot, but I feel I can get the gist of what it is saying,) Yes, understand. (and I think “Oh my God, why can’t others?” I want others to know, too.) Yeah. Very simple, (Yes.) but they don’t understand it. It’s like that. No one understands until they really understand (Yes.) the essence of it, the true meaning of it. We just sing or we read the book. (And what is fascinating is… it’s kept almost like a mystery. So people are reading the scriptures; it’s good for them, but the actual meaning is still there and that will only be opened [revealed] by a living Master.) Yes. (And otherwise, they will not know. So, that’s the thing, you know, like, Wow! It’s [the teachings] left behind and they are praying to the book [scriptures] which is good because it is respecting the great Masters.) And reminding them to… (But, it is the message that is in there, that they don’t get.) I know. (And that’s the sad part.) I know, I know. And it’s very…of course, it’s very touching, when you realize what it is. For her, it is something big. (But outside people, they don’t understand it.) No. (Even not knowing the words… Just everything, just got to the soul!) Yeah. (I don’t know a word of Sikh language or Hindu, but everything was like soaked in the soul.) Yeah, she was crying so much. She was crying when you were singing. (I was just crying all the time because it was so beautiful. It was so beautiful.) Because He’s enlightened, and He understands. He says whatever He knows and He says it from His heart, from His soul. (Yes.) He’s an enlightened soul. (It’s like we are little… so tiny. And this is our prayer, please give us the Name. So, He’s basically giving us that message, you know. It’s saying, “Hey guys, you read this, and then find a Master,” but then, we don’t know that.) Very difficult in this world to understand. Very difficult. (Yes. So, thank You ever so much.) This world has so many distractions. Yes. And it’s clouded the mind, so people really cannot understand anything. Even the Bible, many things are so clear, but people still don’t see it. Even some of the elevated Bible scholars, they also just read, and sometimes, interpret it wrongly even. (It’s the gratitude, thank You so much.) (Thank You, Master for coming to save us and to wake us up.) Oh! But you have other Masters. (Thank You.) If you don’t have me, you can find other Masters. (No! No! No! No! You are the greatest of all!) (Thank You for coming. Thank You. Thank You for Your sacrifice.) (You know there is a song, it’s called “The Greatest Love of All”?) (Oh, yeah.) (You are the greatest love of all! Thank You, Master. Thank You so much.) Thank you for your enlightenment. Thank you, that you are enlightened. (Thank you. Yes, thanks to You!) I am so happy for you. (Thank You.) OK. Do we have any more entertaining programs? (Anybody else who wants to sing?) Anybody else wants to sing a song? (Yes.) Yeah, we have Russian and Spanish and Portuguese and Bulgarian. What’s going on here! (Poland.) (Poland?) How come nobody sings in your language? (OK, it’s a simple song. Ah, OK. “God is here, As strong as the air I breathe, As certain as the morning sun that rises. As loud as I can sing, so that You will hear my song. God is here, As strong as the air I breathe, As certain as the morning sun that rises. As loud as I can sing, so that You will hear my song.”)Bravo! Encore! Encore! (Encore! Encore!) (Again.) (Tell us what’s the meaning of the song.) (The meaning of the song, Master, is that God is here with us) (Oh, wow!) (and we are happy because of that.) You know everything! (I speak Spanish.) (She speaks Spanish.) Oh, really! Oh! (And I know what they sang.) So good! (They sang that God is here with us.) All right. All these people, are you singing something? Why are you standing up? (No, I just moved away to let them sing.) Ah, I see, for the camera. (Yes. Master, I think that they sang that song to You in Cancun. In Cancun, when You were coming in, You were talking about the different merit points.) Yeah? (Yeah, I think, and I remember I loved that song so much. I remember... They were bringing You in, You were walking. You had the colorful clothes, and You were talking about the different merit points and how) Wow. (if you do certain things…) What song was that? (That song. The song they just sang. That. The Dios song.) That one? (Yes, Yes. Yes, in Spanish. Yes, yes.) Was it recorded? (Yes, it’s recorded. Yes, Yes. It was recorded in Cancun. I remember that. It was so nice. I love that.) (Beautiful song.) Beautiful song. (OK, OK. Somebody else.) Somebody else want to sing? The Latin American. The Latin people, they’re very warm, very warm. And they sing the song always with heart. They made it with heart. (I can sing forever to You. Forever.) OK. (This is another one, “All in the Glory of the Great One.”) Thank you. (Waheguru… “Waheguru” means Enlightened Being, Enlightened Master, the Great Master. “Oh Great Wondrous Enlightened Guru, it is all due to Your Blessings, Your Grace, Your Sacrifices; Oh Great Wondrous Enlightened Guru, it is all due to Your Blessings, Your Grace, Your Sacrifices; Oh Great Wondrous Enlightened Guru, it is all due to Your Blessings, Your Grace, Your Sacrifices; Oh Great Wondrous Enlightened Guru, it is all due to Your Blessings, Your Grace, Your Sacrifices; Oh Great Wondrous Enlightened Guru, it is all due to Your Blessings, Your Grace, Your Sacrifices;” Now I don’t know the words.) Never mind. You’re just too nervous. (This is one of my favorites. It is again, it is all Yours. Glory to You. Oh, thank You!) All glory to you. (Glory to You! Glory to You, Beloved Master. If not for You, we would be nowhere!) Oh man. But you are in India, the cradle of spirituality. (No, no, no, no.) I even had to go to India to find my key. So, how come you come all the way to Asia just for what? (Because You are the One.) Yeah, we have affinity? (Yes.) Otherwise in India, India’s abound with gurus. What? (There was someone I met before You) Yes? (and I had to go to India. He came to Melbourne.) Yeah? (His name is... He’s written... I think on Supreme Master TV they’re showing his books sometimes, when they’re showing the programs.) Yeah? (He wrote the book called “The [Guru’s] Word” and it’s on the Sikh [gurus]. And his name is Dr. Santokh Singh. I think he was quite an elevated soul.) Yes. (And he came around and it was like Question-Answer) Yes. (sessions that he held for truth seekers. And I was so hungry, I wanted to know something but I didn’t know what I wanted to know. But I was reading the scriptures with people and we were not getting anywhere. And I was thinking I had to meet someone. And when he came, I met him. And I told him I wanted to really read the scriptures, and understand them, and can you recommend. And so he gave me the books [scriptures]. And he blessed me too.) Yes. (I think I asked him the question, I said, “How do you get rid of the veil of ignorance?” And he was so happy, and he didn’t answer and he gave me a blessing on the book, like he autographed the book. Then, so he blessed me. Obviously, I knew nothing about all this. And when I read the scriptures, non-stop I was crying, like after reading about a hundred pages. And I cried and I cried and I thought, “Am I crazy? What is happening to me?” And so, a few things like that happened. And I was full of gratitude for him.) So he did bless you. (Yes.)

We are in your house now. (This is for You, Master,) Ah, not for everybody. (for all that You’ve done for us and) Thank you. (there’s no words to describe it.) Thank you, thank you. Thank you. (Glory be Yours, Glorious Master Ching Hai!) Oh, I understand that. (Glory be Yours, Glorious Master Ching Hai! Glory be Yours, Wondrous Enlightened Master! Glory be Yours, Glorious Master Ching Hai! Glory be Yours, Glorious Master Ching Hai! Glory be Yours, Glorious Master Ching Hai! Glory be Yours, Glorious Master Ching Hai! Glory be Yours, Glorious Master Ching Hai!) (It means: “Glory be to You.) Oh, yay! (Glory be Yours.” Glory be Yours. There’s another one, which is…) You sing really good. (Thank You. It’s just something they used to sing to Guru Nanak.) Oh. (This I just heard it many years ago.) Oh you cannot… (And so for me I just… No, no, no, it is not a hymn as such, it is just people in awe of their Master, they sing, they make up songs and sing.) But don’t steal from Guru Nanak. (And so, when I was young, I heard it. No, no.) I don’t dare. (No, no, no.) (And there’s another song, it is an old English song.) Yeah. (It’s “Are you going to Scarborough Fair?” Have You heard of that song?) I wasn’t born at that time. (Have you heard that one? But I haven’t got the words matching. I was just kind of humming around the house.) In the bathroom? (So, I don’t know… Yes, bathroom song.) Eh? (Thank You, Master.) (Tim Qo Tu,) Cannot fit. (Py-O-Tu, Tim Qo Tu Tim Qo Tu, Py-O-Tu Tim Qo Tu, Py-O-Tu Tim Qo Tu, I love You, Tim Qo Tu) (Thank You so much, Master.) (Tim Qo Tu,) Tim Qo Tu (Py-O-Tu, I love You) I love you. (Tim Qo Tu, I love You) Is it good? (Yes.) (You know this song?) (Real nice.) (I didn’t know it, but I like this song.) (It is such a beautiful song, but I just wanted to sing to Master.) Bravo! (Master can I sing one more song for You?) Yeah, sure. (Yay!!! I love You! OK, OK. Oh, my God. I feel like this is a dream. It’s a dream. This is a dream. I don’t want to wake up. Hey!! OK, OK, OK.) (Starry, starry night Paint your palette blue and gray Look out in the summer's day With eyes that watch the world and can’t forget Like the strangers that you've met The ragged man (Ragged man, ragged clothes) in ragged clothes I love You. The silver thorn and a bloody rose Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow Now I think I know What you tried to say to me How you suffered for your sanity How you tried to set them free They would not listen, they did not know how I know, we’ll listen now)(Love You, Master. Love You! Thank You, Master.) I called the audience to come, you see that? (Yes, they came.) Originally, there was at the other stage. One more song? (You were the Word at the beginning One with God the Lord Most High Love You, Master! Our sin was great in the beginning Now revealed in You our Christ What a beautiful Name it is The Name of Jesus Christ my King What a beautiful Name it is Nothing compares to this What a beautiful Name it is The Name of Jesus What a beautiful Name it is The Name of Ching Hai) (Love You! Thank You so much, Master. We love You so much! Thank You.) (Mic, mic. Anybody else, talent show? Oh, my God!) Anyone else who dares to show their talent, in front of the professional like me? (I’m going to let it shine This little light of mine I’m going to let it shine Come on! This little light of mine I’m going to let it shine Let it shine, let it shine let it shine this little light of mine Go ahead, go ahead.) (I’m going to let it shine) (Hey! This little…) (Oh, down the road) (I’m going to let it shine) (Oh, down the road. I’m going to let it shine) (Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine This little light of mine. Hey! This little light of mine I’m going to let it shine This little light of mine I’m going to let it shine Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine)

Gândire înaltă şi trai simplu, partea 5 din 5

Este din cauză că ai credinţă. Să vă conectaţi, da? Să aveţi încredere că Puterea Maestrei este mereu acolo cu voi. Dacă vă blocaţi singuri de la această binecuvântare atunci eu nu pot intra; nu vă pot forţa să vă binecuvântaţi! Uneori o fac, dar doar în situaţie de urgenţă. Altfel, voi trebuie să vreţi.

Adică munciţi cinci zile pe săptămână, sau uneori şase zile pe săptămână, şi în cealaltă zi nu ştiţi ce să faceţi! Atunci vă duceţi în grădină, plantaţi ceva şi mâncaţi din munca voastră. Este mai distractiv!

Şi dacă vin aici, uneori, bine, atunci vă spun şi voi vă adunaţi. Vă înghesuiţi o zi, nu contează. Nu trebuie să meditaţi în ziua aceea, stăm împreună, mâncăm şi mergem acasă. Sau medităm în picioare! Sau putem face o podea portabilă.

În realitate, este o idee bună. Dacă avem o fermă, dacă unii din voi îşi pot permite, atunci trăiţi acolo, ieftin. Adică economisiţi. Şi economisiţi bani, în fiecare zi puneţi puţini bani, şi faceţi grădinărie singuri. Vă întreţineţi singuri, este mai bine. Este o viaţă mai completă. Şi sfântă, da!

Gândire înaltă şi trai simplu, partea 1 din 5

Dacă muncim cumva să ne câştigăm traiul, este mai bine pentru toţi. Te simţi bine acolo, deci când te simţi bine, corpul se simte bine. Da, şi este conectat, ştiţi? (Da.) Emoţionalul, spiritualul, mintalul şi fizicul, toate sunt conectate.

Treziţi-vă şi cercetaţi-vă tot timpul, partea 3 din 3

Treziţi-vă. Aveţi mai multă iubire, mai multă bunăvoinţă. Treziţi-vă, faceţi-vă introspecţie să vedeţi dacă chiar aveţi iubire în inima voastră, vreun pic de bunăvoinţă, sau doar vorbiţi, vorbiţi, vorbiţi. A vorbi este uşor. Cercetaţi-vă pe voi, în orice situaţie, vă veţi trezi să vedeţi cu adevărat dacă sunteţi sau nu un practician adevărat, dacă aveţi cu adevărat bunăvoinţă în inimă sau nu aveţi

Cel mai bine este să nu criticaţi, nu doar să nu criticaţi Maestra sub nicio formă, dar nu criticaţi pe nimeni. Pentru că nu avem timp suficient să ne cercetăm nici măcar problemele noastre. Noi avem aşa de multe probleme, ar trebui să ne cercetăm pe noi în loc să-i cercetăm pe alţii. Toţi le au, oricum, deci inclusiv şi noi, deci ar trebui să ne cercetăm pe noi.

Atunci şi voi veniţi aici să mâncaţi mâine, şi apoi meditaţi şi vă odihniţi. Vorbiţi mai puţin şi folosiţi-vă de timpul vostru, păstraţi-vă energia. Dacă vorbiţi prea mult, vă risipiţi energia şi pierdeţi nişte binecuvântări.

Dacă vă menţineţi spiritul pozitiv, miracolele se întâmplă. În afară de aceasta, chiar dacă sunteţi leneşi şi negativi, după ce învăţaţi această Metodă Quan Yin, miracolele tot se întâmplă! Deci, vă puneţi imagina dacă sunteţi mai pozitivi, mai credincioşi, cât de puternici puteţi fi? Vă veţi binecuvânta pe voi, binecuvântaţi viaţa voastră, întreaga lume, universul, faceţi miracole peste tot, oriu
