Host: On June 20, 2021, our Most Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, while still in Her intensive meditation retreat for the world, self-recorded a spontaneous, heartfelt message of appreciation for all helpers, in Heavens and on Earth, during Her Life Mission. Touched by the kindness and support of many beings who have devotedly assisted Her in the past as well as today, Master expressed Her deep gratitude along with Her thoughts on the unnecessary suffering that souls go through while in the domain of the Three Worlds.Hey guys, the heroes of our time. I just have to talk to you without any ado. Sorry, I’m not in a position to appear in front of you, but at least I want to say to you in person that I’m still here and I appreciate very much still what you are doing for the world through our Supreme Master Television. A lot of people in the world appreciate you. We just have to continue this work. Many things have happened during the short few weeks. I had to move a lot and it took some energy from me. Also, my big dog is sick, he’s been fighting with the negative force to protect me as well.Oh, so many animals are so incredibly kind, not just my dog. Even today, outside of my door, there is a spider. He spun a web where I would hang my clothes in the sun to dry, and I tried to shake him away, he didn’t go. He came back and mended his net again, so I was feeling strange that he’s so persisting to build a house there. So I said, “All right. Never mind then. I will try other ways to hang it somewhere else. And then I wanted to find out why is he so insisting to put up a tent in front of my door and where I should hang my clothes also in the sun.I asked him, “Why did you insist to put up your tent here? The house in front of my door like this makes it difficult for me to come out and to hang my clothes.” I don’t have a clothes dryer. Just a small little machine and I have to hang out to dry. I don’t need a dryer actually. So, and then he told me, “Because You need protection.” How can a spider protect me? Imagine. It’s just the invisible things.God works miracles in a way that the normal mind cannot understand. I’m just grateful in any time of my trouble. The animals’ kingdoms, invisible Divinenity Kingdom, Divinity Kingdom, and all these Divine Beings are helping me a lot, even though it’s invisible to the naked eyes. Though I still need to take some blows at times, but without Their help, it would have been worse. And it would have been like I could not even stay and sit here, talk to you. I just want to express my appreciation to all Beings in the Universe, the Universal Beings who protect me: the Ihôs Kư Godses, these Divinenity Godses, and all others who are helping me no end. Even though sometimes They are not allowed to help, but They stand by and They shed tears. Their tears also are a comfort to me. Knowing that someone understood, someone sympathized with my mission and my difficulty, is also a sign of comfort. And, anyway, all the help that I get or not get, just sympathy also is very comforting. So he (the spider) said, “Because You need protection.” My God, such a small little creature like that. I was so touched. I said, “I’m sorry I scared you before, because I just faced something suddenly like your house in front of my door.” So I apologized. I gave him some little seaweed bits to eat. I thought then he doesn’t have to eat other things. But he took them all out. He didn’t want them. He said, “The net is to catch the evil energy, not to put things on it and mess it up.” Oh, I was so ashamed. I felt, “Oh God. Why didn’t I check all this before?” But I was so busy with many other things. And my thoughts are not all together in one point. I’m supposed to do more one-pointed concentration, but so many things were happening in the span of a very short time. I could not even tell you or explain to you, because many things are not visible. Like my dog, when he was fighting with the oppressive energy, he was trembling under the table. And then a few days later, he fell ill, very ill, very ill, and I could not even be with him. I sent him my love, my energy to heal him also. I used another body to be with him of course, and then I had to spend time with him, concentration to think of what else to do for him because he was almost gone. He could not eat, he could not walk. So then finally I found some doctors, acupuncturists to come and help him, and they told me that he seems better. Hopefully. I’ve been praying for him also. That took up also some of my time and energy. And I’ve been threatening Heaven and hell. I said, “My dog is working for you, dear Heaven, because he protects me.” I didn’t ask for it, I tell him never to protect me, but you know dogs, they are like that. This dog has not always been a dog. He has been my ex-husband, a long time ago. So one day I asked him, “Why did you sacrifice so much and being so good to me?” He said, “Because You are my wife.” My God, what a love. A love that lasts eternally, you saw that? But I don’t feel… I said to him, “I’m sorry, I cannot imagine you are as a human, my husband, and all that. But I do love you so dearly, so dearly. I’d move Heaven and Earth.” Anytime he is sick, I threaten to destroy all the palaces of these deities if they don’t do something. Because my dog is good. He works for the positive side. He works for me, he works for God. I said, “Why are you just standing by and don’t do anything to help him and let him alone to fight with the negative power like that?” I blamed them a lot. Because I was anguished for his weakness and in his illness, and I felt helpless. I used my power to heal him and all that, but we need more than that. So finally, we got it together and hopefully he will be all right. He did many times save my life, not just one time. Today, my thoughts were wandering a lot, in the old time. I was watching some of the shows that you send me to edit, and of course, I have to write something, comments and all that, with many shows that you sent me. And my thoughts drifted back to the old time, when we were also on the run, in different places, and working in different difficult situations. And I was remembering my old assistants, we were in a very small square, maybe two square meters of a side room of a trailer, and we squeezed together in making all these speeches and connections with the world, through the internet. They did such a wonderful job, now I look at it, I saw, with such simple equipment and very small space. They were squeezing, kneeling on the floor, because we didn’t have tables and all that. I had only one chair that they covered to make it look good. And they bought some curtain to put behind me that looked good. But otherwise, we had nothing more. And they had to sleep in the storeroom next door, because I didn’t want men to sleep in the same room with me. And they did squeeze in the little storage space, two of them in winter even, and no heater, nothing. Now I thought about that, I was crying, thinking how good they have been. And now because life has many surprises for us and we are separated, we’re not together anymore, but we’re still working together in some manner, remotely. But I thought of them and how devoted they had been to me during my running time, running from trouble, running from danger. They were always standing by. I just want to say thank you to these people, to my assistants in the former period of my life, that they have been doing all the best they can, in all kinds of situations and circumstances and difficulties. I’m forever grateful. May God bless you. And may God bless you too, my present assistants. I’m really appreciative today, thinking of all the past difficult situations and my then assistants, trying all their might to help my mission no matter what. And it had not always been easy for all of us then. And still now, sometimes now. Like we had just set up the system. And then now I cannot do it again, for many reasons. But I think we will do it another time. So, I’m just telling you something from my heart, without having to go through all the procedures, like makeup, dressing up. Because I’m worried my thoughts, my genuine deep emotion will be gone by then. It’s different when I am in peace and in an easy situation, that I can take time and to leisurely prepare for the camera and prepare the camera. I am still alone. You know that. But sometimes I thought I’d just express my feeling of thankfulness, of humble, deep appreciation to all of you, whoever helped me in any way. I thought I just want to express that without you having to see me, without you having to prepare to see me, or I have to prepare for the camera to see you, etc. So… Because it’s real this way also. When I want to read you a story or tell you some nice jokes or stuff like that, then it’s different. But… Today I just didn’t want to wait for all that to happen, maybe my feeling will be gone and it won’t be as raw as now. So, it doesn’t matter, you can just listen to me, to my voice, and know that I am genuine in my speech, genuinely grateful for all the help I got. Also, I thank all the invisible beings, not just the animal kingdom, but just any of them who are trying so hard to comfort me these days. Every day they tell me not to worry, it will pass. Not to worry, the dog will be fine. But it was difficult even for me to believe that the dog will be fine when I have pictures of him, videos of him, cannot walk, cannot eat. Just lay there, cannot breathe very peacefully also, and it was very difficult. I prayed so hard, and then I also threatened all the gods in Heavens, lower Heavens of course. And I just hope he’s getting better. I appreciate him so much also, such a dog and even forsaking his life for me. Not just one time, and not just him. Other dogs as well, I told you before some other stories a long time ago. I was just watching the video you sent me about “The Real Love,” just for perusal, and I just remembered the dog, that he said he does everything for me because I was his wife, and he still thinks like that. After many lifetimes already, separation through karma, through upheavals, his love is still there for me. He helped me many times in this life, and two times as dogs, not just this time. He died, reincarnated again as another dog just to protect me. And so we had a talk the other day, telepathically of course, and I was shedding tears. I said, “My God, what a love!” I don’t know how to express appreciation for such love even. Oh my God, he suffers so much. I told Heaven, “Please just make me suffer, don’t make my dog suffer. He’s just a dog, and he’s working for you, working for the positive side, because he’s helping me. Because I am working for the positive side, I’m working for God. So why do you just let all the good, positive beings suffer? It’s not fair.” So I said, “I will fight. I will not accept this.” Of course, I have been always fighting anyway, but every time I’m more determined. Every time I more decisively continue, stronger, because I hate injustice. I hate unfairness for anyone at all, for anything in this world. Especially the meek and weak, defenseless. I cannot tell you all the conversation I talked with my dog and with the Heaven who is just ignoring the suffering of humans and other beings on this planet. Many times, I’m very mad. I’m very angry. If you think that I’m an angry Master, for example, with the corrupted government, or with the rotten church members, oh, that’s nothing. That’s nothing compared to when I talk to those lower Heavens up there who are causing trouble and don’t help. You cannot imagine how I talk to them and threaten them, and being angry at them. I say, “You have a lot of power, you use it for nothing. And you even smile at our suffering here. If you don’t do something more, I’m going to destroy all of you, and your palaces and all.” But I cannot express it now, the way I said it, and in many words I said it, so it’s just a condensation, a little bit of what I told them, often. Not just one time. Whenever the situation provokes me, I hurl it all at them and the zealous demons, of course, and satan, of course. All of that. I spent a lot of words on them. I don’t want you to hear them also – it’s nothing pleasant. I was truly angry at the injustice in this world and not many helping hands. Of course, they are more cooperative now. Still, I don’t see the quick enough result. Some lower deities, Third Level gods, are saying to other beings that “you have to come down, you have to learn so that you will know this, know that.” “What for?” I said, “What for? The souls are originally pure, simple, wise, loving and kind. There’s nothing they need to learn anymore through all this suffering and pain! It is you who cause all that trouble. So cut it out.” But this is not what I expressed when I was really angry and anguished inside for all the suffering of humans and animals and other beings, as far as I can see. Just to let you know some of my angry moments when I vented on the gods. But of course, the energy is different now when I’m telling you, because it’s already done, it’s past. But my flare, it doesn’t stop here or there. It will continue, I’m sure, later on, when I see something that I cannot tolerate. But not for my sake, for the victims’ sake. I hate the system in the Three Worlds. It’s all oppressive. It’s all about law and order. It’s fallible. It’s so easy to fall in this world and even in another world like the Astral world. Within the Three Worlds, it’s very easy to fall. Even if you are on the top Three already, if you come back, be human, you definitely will one day, when your merit runs out. You’ll be human or animal, you fall again, and you just get lower. That is the deal. That’s the problem. That’s what I hate about it. That’s why whatever they argue with me, it’s no use. I say, “It’s all hypocritical. I don’t take all that, I don’t accept anything like that. You trap the souls into this web of yours and then you torture them, you criticize them, you nitpick. Whatever they do, it’s all wrong. They can never do anything right. Even if they do, you will cast it in some other trap or trick to make it lessened, to make more trouble, or to continue in a different way, so they have to continue to enjoy that merit, and then they fall again!” Because it’s very difficult not to fall in this world, and I saw all that, I can see all that clearly. So sometimes I’m really angry at them. Really, really. You don’t see those moments ever, but it’s nothing compared to what you have seen when I was angry with some humans on this planet. If you see the energy, it makes them tremble. That’s sufficient to tell you. Oh, I don’t know why I go so far from Heaven to hell… I just want to tell you that I appreciate all of you, past and present, and maybe future assistants in any way you can to help the suffering on this planet and the next. Especially the victims, the human victims, and the animals, and the children. These meek and weak and vulnerable beings that my heart always goes out for. My heart always goes out to them. My sympathy, my love, always for them. No matter how many times I see a similar or same situation, my heart always cannot bear, and I cry for many hours or many days, depends. Anyway, please continue. You have learned something from me every day by my comments and my instruction or my information for you. We will continue together, of course, as long as I can. But even if I cannot, I told you many times, you must continue to help the world. My energy will always be there with you, surrounding you. Just be receptive enough to take it, so that you can do a good job or better job. I trust in all of you. And if you, the past assistants, happen to hear me, I thank you, and I love you. I miss the time we spent together. Many of you have helped me a lot. I cannot list it all here, but know in your heart that I’m thanking you, and I’ll be there for you whenever you need. I love you all. I praise you. I respect all of you, the ones who help me to help the planet, to help all beings in this world. I will never forget your sacrifice, your favor, your love, your genuine contribution to this mission, to help alleviate the suffering of this world. I will never forget. I will always be there for you. May the Heavens always smile upon your efforts in any noble way that you try in your life to help yourself, your families, your countries, and all others, strangers and friends alike. I love you. Forever. Host: Most Loving Master, our humble thankfulness for always standing up for the afflicted beings in this world, understanding their troubles and heroically giving all that You can for their relief. It is our biggest honor to be part of Your most unconditional and benevolent Mission to realize a more peaceful world, where only God and goodness shall be praised. May Beloved Master enjoy lasting health and serenity, in the constant Assistance of all Divine Beings and Divinenity Godses.

Biserica este pentru oameni, nu oamenii pentru biserică. (Da, Maestră.) Biserica este acolo să protejeze moralitatea, virtuţile şi credinţa oamenilor. Moralitatea şi virtuţile de a trăi în societate, de a se armoniza cu toate fiinţele, şi credinţa de a ne aduce aminte şi a-l sluji pe Dumnezeu. Biserica nu serveşte niciuna din acestea dacă ei continuă să facă aceste fapte de tip diavolesc şi le fac

There are two gates up there. One leads toplaces within the three worlds, and one goes beyond the three worlds. I openedthe one beyond the three worlds for you when I gave you initiation. Understand?Just like your house has a front door and a back door. You use the front doorto go outside, whereas the back door will lead you to the trash bin or therestroom. Of course, the wisdom eye is the center ofwisdom. Inside. We can use it in any way. But qigong uses it for only onepurpose. Even though it opens the right door, it is used only for one purpose,such as emitting qi. It does not take you beyond the three worlds. Qigong isused solely for martial arts, but not to its full capacity. So being the bestkung fu master is all you could achieve. But the best kung fu master is stillnothing!

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.

In today’s news, USAID financially supports post-disaster recovery in Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam, highly contagious African swine fever resurfaces in Korea, scientists in United Kingdom devise vegan spider silk material as potential plastics replacement, UNESCO and European Union project promotes urban renewal and youth employment through cultural preservation in Yemen, caring teen in United States declines US$40,000 university scholarship to benefit other students, Dutch company to soon offer fava bean protein, and animal activists in China save 68 dogs from dog meat festival. USAID provides post-disaster recovery assistance to Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) will give approximately US$535,000 to help those in the Nghĩa Hành district of Quảng Ngãi province to overcome the damage done by floods caused by storms and typhoons at the end of 2020. Cash assistance of over US$500,000 will be given directly to 465 affected families. The remaining funds will be used to repair and reinforce local houses. The United States is a recipient of four Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, three Shining World Leadership Awards for Good Governance, seven Shining World Leadership Awards for Promoting Healthy Living, and Shining World Leadership Awards for Justice, Protection, and Environmental Protection; and a laureate of 24 Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, three Shining World Leadership Awards for Protection, two Shining World Leadership Awards for Loving Care, a Shining World Peace Leader Award, Shining World Caring Leadership Award, and Shining World Super Loving Care Leadership Award. Thank you, USAID, for your generous donation. In the overwhelming love of the Divine, may the kind residents of Nghĩa Hành district be blessed with peaceful lives and abundance. African swine fever reappears in Korea. Two cases of African swine fever (ASF) were recently confirmed in Korea’s Gangwon Province, leading to the immediate, saddening slaughtering of all 401 pigs at one site and the placing of 170 similar facilities nearby under quarantine. Since the beginning of the outbreak in Korea in September 2019, the country has lamentably killed more than 450,000 pigs throughout the nation due to the virus. There is no vaccine for AFS, which is nearly always fatal to the pigs that contract it; the disease is hard to contain, spreading directly between the animals as well as from contaminated feed and equipment. We pray that this latest incident will be a wake-up call for the animal livestock industry and humanity. Let us support the transition of those working in animal factories to new livelihoods as people everywhere embrace plant-based foods for health and life preservation in Buddha’s grace. Up next, scientists in United Kingdom devise vegan spider silk material as potential plastics replacement. We are now going to thank the pattern designers for our curtain textiles that bring just the right aesthetic touch to our living spaces, offices, etc. Please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for more exemplary news. Vegan: your seat is reserved in Heaven.Good day, gentle viewers, I’m Am Teelo the vegan Antelope. Why be ordinary when you can be extraordinary? Embody compassion and adopt the vegan lifestyle. Here is a little wood painting and staining tip for you. If you plan on painting or staining wood, it is recommended that you wait a minimum of four hours before applying a second coat. This ensures that the first coat has enough time to absorb into the wood. If you notice pooling of the stain on the wood’s surface, this means that the first coat hasn’t had enough time to dry. Also, excess stain could cause unwanted slickness that is easier to slip on, while too-thick paint that isn’t dry yet might peel, or clump and crack, later on. So, using the right amount and a little patience will go a long way! Thank you for tuning in, and lots of love for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet for all humans and us all co-inhabitants. Now, the worldwide weather. United Kingdom scientists create vegan spider silk substance as plastic alternative. A team of researchers led by Dr. Tuomas Knowles from the University of Cambridge, UK, has successfully created a biodegradable and environmentally friendly spider silk-like polymer film from soy-protein isolate (SPI). The researchers, who have been working for over a decade to understand how nature produces materials from proteins, describe the process as being similar to how a spider creates a web – a delicate fiber made from an aqueous protein solution that is then spun for strength. The team used SPI together with acetic acid and water to form a thin silk-like material. Xampla, a University of Cambridge spin-off company, is expected to bring the product to market later this year and hopes to use it to replace single-use plastics. What a brilliant idea, Dr. Tuomas Knowles, research team and Xampla. May innovations like yours inspire others to further explore plant-based technology, in Heaven’s guidance. UNESCO and European Union (EU) support urban renewal and youth development through culture promotion in Yemen. The EU is the generous funder of a UNESCO project that employs youth in Yemen’s urban areas to restore and preserve the country’s rich cultural heritage, which, in turn, promotes stability and social cohesion. The more than 2,500 young people participating in the program surveyed over 8,000 historical buildings in the cities of Sana'a, Aden, Shibam, and Zabid and conducted repairs on 151 of them. In May 2021, a two-day virtual conference celebrated the endeavor’s achievements. It also featured short documentary films on Yemeni culture made by talented directors of the Yemeni Film Factory, an initiative dedicated to assisting young men and women in accessing economic opportunities in the film industry. The European Union is a recipient of four Shining World Leadership Awards for Humanitarianism, two Shining World Leadership Awards for Peace, and a Shining World Leadership Award for Earth Protection; as well as a laureate of two Shining World Leadership Awards for Humanitarianism and Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion, Unconditional World Care and True Caring. Kudos, European Union, UNESCO and all participants. Through positive ventures, may the Yemeni youth help create a world of greater beauty, harmony and abundance in Allah’s loving light. Harvard-bound high school graduate donates scholarship to help other students. When Verda Tetteh, 17, of Fitchburg, Massachusetts, United States, was awarded an additional scholarship of US$40,000 during her high school graduation ceremony, she requested that the money instead go to help a student or students attending a community college. Commenting on her decision, Verda said, “I’m excited to see who it helps and how that changes their life, so I am so happy that God gave me the strength to do that.” The brilliant student, who received other scholarships to attend Harvard University, came to the United States from Ghana as a child with her mother, Rosemary Annan. Ms. Annan graduated from a local community college at age 47 and many times works an 80-hour week to support her family. Bravo, Verda Tetteh, for your outstanding academic achievements and giving spirit. May you continue to pursue your love of learning and inspire many in God’s support. Coming up, Dutch company to soon offer fava bean protein. We’ll take a moment to appreciate the inspiring songs and music that comfort us with their heaven-like melodies. More supporting news coming up on Supreme Master Television. Vegan：Who is the handsome! Welcome back to Noteworthy News – Praiseworthy News for an Advancing World. Dutch company to produce vegan protein from fava beans. Meelunie, which specializes in manufacturing plant starches and proteins, will open a new processing facility next year in Hedensted, Denmark, for extracting protein from fava beans. The new vegan protein product will offer another alternative to soy, and fava beans can be grown in colder climates such as Denmark. Its facility will use unique technology developed after 17 years of research by the University of Copenhagen, that removes the bitter taste from fava beans and improves their digestibility. Great news, Meelunie, on your upcoming plant-protein production facility that will create health-enhancing protein from fava beans. In the love of the Providence, may your new offering soon be used to produce many new meat and dairy substitutes as the planet’s inhabitants rejoice over the ever-growing number of plant-based food choices. Animal activists save 68 dogs in China from slaughter. A group of animal advocates has saved 68 distressed dogs from a truck that was headed for the annual Yulin dog meat festival in Guangxi, China. According to activist Liang Jia, the rescue team stopped the vehicle and persuaded the driver to release the canines, who were apparently stolen companions by such indicators as healthy teeth. Imprisoned in rusty wire cages, the 68 dogs were exhausted and panting when found, as they had experienced a long trip without food or water. Terrified, many of them were in bad health and had eye infections. After the rescue, the dogs were transported to a temporary facility to heal and receive veterinary care before moving to a shelter supported by Humane Society International (HSI) , a Shining World Compassion Award recipient and a Shining World Protection Award laureate. Supreme Master Ching Hai has previously donated US$102,000 to HSI to support its work. Our tearful gratitude, Liang Jia, all activists involved and Humane Society International. In Heaven’s mercy, may we always treat all innocent animal brethren with love and respect for a kinder world. Let’s keep up a sunny outlook on life with a comical moment. This joke of the day is called, “Don’t Walk.” A policewoman noticed a teenager crossing the street at the wrong time. “Hey kid! You shouldn’t cross the street when the light says, ‘Don’t Walk’!”“But I’m not walking, officer. I’m running.”And now we have a heartline from Yasamin in Iran: Greetings to the Ultimate Supreme Master and all the team of the blessed and brilliant television channel of the inimitable Master. My son and I laughed a lot when Master’s animation aired, and my heart was filled with joy to see my son’s face was full of laughter, especially when Master threw off Her slippers and went to sleep. I was thinking how humble Master must be to make a comic animation about Herself, even though She is at the highest level in the Universe. I wish all of us humans could learn from Master and follow the teachings of the Holy Prophets who came down to Earth to teach us the way of love and compassion and help us avoid prejudice. Yasamin from Iran Joyful Yasamin, It was nice to read your heartfelt sentiments. The Supreme Master TV team joins you in wishing that humans learn from the teachings of all the great Masters, who have so generously and lovingly come down to our planet, since time immemorial, to teach us the Divine way of life. That is the only way we will be able to achieve Master’s goal, to see a peaceful world come very soon. May you and the clever country of Iran be uplifted spiritually. In the guidance of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), Supreme Master Television team P.S. Master replies and offers caring words of advice: “Lovable Yasamin and son, as I have said before, humility is one of the key qualities necessary to succeed on the spiritual path. A Master must set an example for Her disciples. Also, humor always helps disciples relax and be more receptive to the Divine teachings! I hope that many smiles will continue to accompany you along your spiritual journey! May Allah’s mercy be forever upon you and reverent Iran.” We welcome your heartlines, stories and or cute, loving animal clips. Please send them via SupremeMasterTV.com/heartlineThank you for spending time with us on Noteworthy News. May your loving heart be graced with inner tranquility and bliss.

Did anyone else try to shoot me before? Please come up. How did you do it? There are quite a few qigong masters here, quite a few men. Are you all hiding? I would not take revenge. The best revenge is to take you beyond the three realms, so that you wouldn’t want to shoot me anymore. Master: Master Ji Gong told many people to come to me. You were not the only one. He said very clearly to some people. He also told them that he’s not up to Master’s level. He meant I was a little higher than him. That’s what he said. Q(f1): Actually, You are much higher. Master: Lovely! (Yes.) It’s hard to measure “a little.” How much does “a little” mean in the Buddha’s realm compared to this world? Then what happened? Q(f1): The day after Master Ji Gong spoke to me, I saw Master wearing a monastic robe with Her head shaved, like in the early days. And You said to me, “You can be my disciple now.” Something like that. Q(f3): The second day, she saw the inner Master come to tell her, “You may become my disciple.” Master: OK. Q(f1): Then I bowed to You. I said I did not have enough merit. I dared not. Then I withdrew. The second day You came again, again wearing the nun’s robe. I stood there and You walked around me three times and said, “You can practice the Quan Yin Method with me now.” Still I said that I dared not. The third day, I only saw You wearing the golden garment, just like in the early days, but You said nothing. And then… Master: I already told you twice. What more could I say? I was too tired the third time. You were lucky to see me appear again. Other Masters would have let you go. (Yes.) And then? Q(f1): Then I finally came to Hsihu ashram. The first time, a fellow initiate drove us here. On our way here there was a heavy storm. The rain was so heavy that it was almost impossible to drive. But we came anyway. We heard that Master was giving initiation that day. But when we got here, we found it had been rescheduled. The second time, again there was a storm and Master was going to give initiation, but the initiation was canceled again. The third time, we also traveled through a storm. But when we arrived in Hsihu, the day was clear. The rain had stopped. That day happened to be Your birthday. And on that day, I also thought that I must challenge You. Master: At that time, she still wanted to challenge me. You see? That was too much! (Yes.) To have disciples like this. Hard like a stone. Master Ji Gong already told her to be my disciple. The deity from her own religion already told her to come learn with me. And my transformation body also came and told her three times. She still came here to shoot me. See? Always the disciples are like this. See how hard it is to teach you! I have to suffer so much. You don’t understand. So much hard work! You wouldn’t know if she didn’t tell you. It’s good that she told you a little bit today. There are quite a few other disciples who wanted to shoot me. You didn’t know. If I was not powerful enough I would not be here today. Q(f1): Then after initiation, I went back to stay in an I-Kuan Tao temple. Q(f3): She stayed in an I-Kuan Tao temple, focusing on spiritual practice. Master: Oh. Q(f1): Yes. I stayed in an I-Kuan Tao temple. I practiced the Quan Yin Method there and meditated. But I felt very different after a week. I believed that the so-called deities and gods in I-Kuan Tao were at the astral level. When we meditate and practice the Quan Yin Method, our inner Buddha light shines out, emitting immeasurable merits. And the astral beings would come and try to grab this light. Master: Grab your light? (Yes.) It happens! (Yes.) Then what happened? Q(f1): After seven days of meditation, I felt that my practice was not on the right track and my spirit seemed to have gone away. Like it had unraveled. So I knew that the registers for heaven and hell mentioned in I-Kuan Tao did really exist. Master: I don’t understand. Q(f3): I don’t understand. Master: Please explain the last sentence. Q(f1): I-Kuan Tao mentions a dragon heaven chart. Do You know that? It means the registers for heaven and hell. Q(f3): They have a dragon heaven chart. Master: What about it? Q(f1): The dragon heaven chart is like the chart used in Taoism for liberating the dead. Master: But what is the connection between this and your spirit going out? Q(f1): Oh. Now we’re talking about the deities and gods in the I-Kuan Tao temple. Q(f3): The problems with the deities in the I-Kuan Tao temple were what she was talking about. Master: Oh. Go ahead. (Yes. And then…) You talk about the problems of those deities. Q(f1): Yes. They say that spiritual practice can liberate us from the cycle of birth and death. Yes? They say we can be elevated from the cycle of life and death. At that time I believed it, that our names could be removed from the list for hell and added to the register for the astral heaven. Master: Do you understand? (Yes.) Yes. Q(f3): She said that it’s called the Long Tian list, or Dragon Heaven list. (Yes, the register for heaven.) The soul could go to the Asura world. She said that the purpose of practicing spiritually is to be liberated from the cycle of birth and death. (That… Yes.) Master: Put the microphone further away, then your voice might sound clearer. Q(f1): OK. As for the register for heaven, the name will be removed from the list for hell and registered for heaven. Meaning your name will be removed from the list for hell. Q(f3): She said that our names would be added to heaven’s register and crossed out from the hell list. That means we would not go to hell. Q(f1): Yes. So after we die, we would not go to hell. Master: I’ve told you this many times. But you don’t believe me. Then what happened? Q(f1): In I-Kuan Tao, it’s said that Master Ji Gong would bear our karma, but only for three years. After three years we’re on our own. Yes. Paying no heed to you after three years. Master: Oh! What happens after three years? (After three years, it’s up to us.) OK. Q(f1): Yes. It depends on our level of practice. If we cannot bear our own karma, then after three years… Master: It’s already good that he carries your karma for three years. (Yes.) Otherwise, who wants to take your karmic burden? Q(f1): Yes. That’s why I believed in I-Kuan Tao. But now I have learned the Quan Yin Method and saw that You are a real living Buddha, who can save sentient beings, truly save our souls, and liberate us from the cycle of birth and death. That’s why I want to be a nun. Master: I see! (Yes.) OK. (That’s all.) It’s good. Q(f1): Yes. It was all arranged by Master. Master: It’s good that you believe me. (Yes.) Master: Where is your magic sword now? Where did you put it? Q(f1): Oh that! I threw it away! I’m done with it. Master: Good, good. Don’t use it anymore. Q(f1): No. Now I’ll concentrate on the Quan Yin Method and practice for Buddhahood. Master: That’s wonderful! I do not blame you for shooting me. Because if you did not try, you would not know who I am. (Yes, I learned my lesson.) You were thinking, “what if she’s evil?” Right? (Yes.) “I’ll shoot her, and if she doesn’t die, it means she’s good. Then I could be her disciple!” It’d be troublesome if we found the wrong teacher! No? She was trying to find a real Master, because she had been practicing since childhood. She has an intense longing for the Dharma. If she found the wrong Master, her whole life would have been wasted, understand? Q(f1): Yes, that’s why I had only one Master before, Master Ji Gong. Master: He is also a good one! Q(f1): Yes, but he’s not as high as You! That’s why he wanted me to come to You! Master: What did you say? (He was not as high as You. That’s why he wanted me to learn with You.)Master: Great. He’s honest. He will have merit for this. Master Ji Gong is good. But he’s not in this physical world anymore. Q(f1): No. He doesn’t have a physical body. So he cannot bear our karma. Master: Right. Anything else? (That’s all.) That’s all? (Yes.) Tell me more after you become a nun. OK. (Thank You, Master.) Master: Did anyone else try to shoot me before? Please come up. How did you do it? There are quite a few qigong masters here, quite a few men. Are you all hiding? I would not take revenge. The best revenge is to take you beyond the three realms, so that you wouldn’t want to shoot me anymore. That’s revenge from the core. End the hatred forever. If I take revenge on you, I’ll not be able to eliminate it from the core. I always deal with things from the core. It’s good, isn’t it? (Yes.) OK. That’s the real solution. End the cycle of revenge. Master: OK, who else? Anyone has better magic? You can also show your small magic. Just for fun. It’s a pity that she could not perform for you. But I believe that she does have this magic. She would not lie to you. You can tell from the way she talks. She truly has magic power. It’s not easy to have achieved this. If your wisdom eye is open, you can see the sword she manifested was like a real sword, but it was thousands of times more powerful. You could not stop it! You could not control it. If you don’t have much spiritual power, you’d be shot by it. Then you would probably die, even without any sickness. Not only in this life, but many lifetimes! No one could save you unless you met a high-level Master. The sword could penetrate your spiritual body. After that you’d be controlled by her. You would listen to her command, unable to do anything with your own will. Your soul would be controlled! You’d be seriously injured, deeply wounded! No one would be able to save you. It’s very scary. So if a sorcerer has no morals, it’d be really troublesome. Yet this is how she came to believe Master. It’s not because she was jealous or had bad intentions. You cannot say that she’s not loyal to the Truth. She just wanted to test whether I was a demon or not. She thought she could be like the Monkey King, protecting people from evil by eliminating a big demon. That’s why. When she failed, she knew that I was not the bad one. She was. I’m just joking. You see, it’s not easy for her to obtain such power! She has meditated since childhood. She has been training since she was little. It’s easier if you learn from childhood. You’re more innocent and can concentrate more easily. If you start from childhood, you would be very powerful and have great achievement. There are some who have achieved something similar. But you don’t have to manifest such a long sword to kill a person. This is enough. It’s already a great achievement for her. I am small. For me, just this long is enough. Isn’t it? With a few centimeters to spare. It’s a waste to use so much energy to manifest this. OK. If you want to shoot me, then make a small one. Don’t need to waste so much power. However, there is one thing not so good about it. Not only do you use this power to harm people, you also use it to kill and eliminate. Annihilation. (To annihilate him.) Saving people is really what matters. What’s so great about killing people? People learn two things: To kill and to save. To kill is so simple. To eliminate someone is so easy. It’s also easy to eliminate ghosts. But it’s better to save ghosts and demons. Isn’t it? If you just kill and eliminate anyone and everyone, it’s no good. Right? Master: Well, anyone else wants to share something? Just to pass the time. Let’s not be too serious. Come, come. Yeah, I remember him. I remember him. He told us some stories at the Q(m1): -day retreat, didn’t he? Come sit here. OK, sit anywhere you like, as long as you’re comfortable. You don’t have to look at them, if you are worried that they will make trouble for you later. Tell me. Q(m1): I once tried to exchange qi or energy flow with You by releasing it from the top of my head. That was during a lecture by Master in Pingtung. Master: I don’t understand. Come closer. Come over here. Here we can talk better. Come, come. You’ll feel more comfortable. OK, now we can chat. Sit down. Sit here. It’s OK. What are you afraid of? You already know I am not a demon. Sit! We can talk casually, like friends. They would just listen by the way. Q(m1): One time Master was giving a lecture in Pingtung, At that time I didn’t know who Master was. I was practicing qigong at the time. I could exchange my qi (energy flow) with trees. Q(f3): He could exchange energy with trees. Master: Oh! (I could…) Exchange qi with all beings. (Yes.) And? Q(m1): My qi would flow from the top of my head into a tree. Master: Into a tree? (And then…) Draw energy back from the tree? (I can absorb energy from the tree.) And? (When you were giving the lecture…) No wonder your face looks so green. You’ve almost turned into a tree. And then what happened? This is not easy. It’s not a simple task. I know. It’s similar to the way Arabian people practiced. I know. There was once an old Arabic witch. She was an old practitioner, an old woman. She did not have to eat. She just absorbed energy. How did she do it? For example, if she was going to perform, she would pick a grapefruit about this size. She would just lie there with her eyes closed and do nothing. But suddenly the grapefruit would shrink, leaving its skin dry. She had extracted the juice inside! Is it like that? If you extract qi from the trees, will they die? (No.) No? Q(m1): They are grown trees, not small trees. Master: So you used bigger trees? Q(m1): Just ordinary trees. I dared not exchange qi with very big trees. I had heard a story about a person who knew how to exchange qi. He tried to exchange qi with a sacred tree. A sacred tree is one that has lived for hundreds of years. As a result, his qi was sucked away by that tree. Master: So small trees are better? Yes. That’s right. Q(m1): His whole body stayed cold for a whole month. Master: Oh! Was he OK? Q(m1): He recovered slowly. So I only do it with smaller trees. Master: Yeah, they are kinder and do not react so severely. Stick to smaller trees in the future. Didn’t your teacher tell you that? Why go to sacred trees? They are old and more powerful. Even I know, that old people are not to be messed with. Then what happened? Continue your story. Q(m1): So Master was giving a lecture in Pingtung. I was ignorant of Master’s Power. Master was sitting on the stage, and I tried to send out my qi to exchange with Master’s. Master: You aimed your qi at me? Oh, you were only trying. (Yes.) You did not see my light? Q(m1): I did. But I did not realize that it was the Buddha Light. My qi dissipated when it touched Your Light. Again and again, I sent my qi and it was gone. Master: You lost your qi. (Yes.) My goodness! Lucky you are still alive! And then? Q(m1): Actually, this ability came naturally after I practiced qigong. It was very sudden. It was not my original intention. Master: Understand. Q(m1): I practiced qigong to strengthen my internal organs. This was incidental. Master: You tried to shoot your qi at me. Then what happened? How did it disappear? Q(m1): Once I released my qi, it dissolved just like materials melt upon contact with the sun. I don’t know where my qi went. It seemed to have hit something and was dissolved right away. Master: OK. Did you run out of qi? Q(m1): I dared not continue. I stopped after trying a few times. Master: You stopped? (I stopped just in time.) Good. Otherwise, you would have no qi left. (That’s right.) Anything else? Q(m1): I just wanted to try out my sorcery skills. By practicing qigong, I also achieved some other skills, such as external qigong. External qigong is… Master: Did you practice neidangong or internal alchemy? Q(m1): No, it was qigong. The real qigong. Master: Qigong, OK. There are many kinds of qigong. (Yes.)

Much research shows that male birds with brighter plumage colors have a better chance of pairing, as females recognize bright plumage colors as an indicator of good health and strength. In order to tell subtle color differences between individual males, females produce more opsins or specialized light sensitive proteins in their retinas over time. This causes the male’s plumage to become more and

In today’s news, international humanitarian relief organization strengthens support for Venezuelan migrants and refugees, United Nations entities seek immediate action to address famine risk in Ethiopia’s Tigray Region, study finds natural sounds calm mind and body, World Health Organization releases free yoga app, 10-year-old Russian boy sets pushup record, three-star Michelin restaurant in New York City, United States goes plant-based, and Estonia outlaws raising animals for fur. Global humanitarian organization assists Venezuelan migrants. A new US$264 million program by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) will provide increased support to Venezuelan migrants and refugees as well as host communities. People in 17 countries throughout Latin America and the Caribbean will receive the much needed assistance over 36 months. Areas to be focused on include offering healthcare access, income opportunities, psychosocial support, protection services and aiding integration into local society. The COVID-19 pandemic, associated lockdowns and border restrictions have exacerbated the perilous situation of the vulnerable migrants, many of whom have no way to earn income and are unable to meet basic needs like adequate food and protection. Dr. Peter Maurer, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross, said: “No one should be left unprotected and alone when in need of help.” Our grateful applause, IFRC. In the Providence’s benevolent grace, may all migrants and refugees soon greet brighter tomorrows in a kinder world. United Nations (UN) entities call for urgent action to mitigate famine risk in Ethiopia’s Tigray Region. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the UN World Food Programme (WFP) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) are appealing for immediate measures to address acute food insecurity in the conflict-affected Tigray Region of northern Ethiopia. According to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification, more than 5.5 million people in Tigray and the neighboring zones of Amhara and Afar live with high acute or worse levels of food insecurity. In particular, over 350,000 people are in the “Catastrophe” category and two million are in the “Emergency” category. To avert the chance of imminent famine, the UN agencies urge for a cessation of hostilities, free access to the area, as well as a contribution of funds totaling nearly US$300 million to provide emergency food and livelihood assistance. Many thanks, FAO, WFP and UNICEF. In Celestial upliftment, may more stable lives soon await those in the Tigray Region with abundance and tranquility for all. Up next, study finds natural sounds calm mind and body. We are just going to thank the feng shui consultants, who show us how to create better living conditions in our homes and offices for enhanced physical, mental and spiritual health by harmonizing us with the environment. When we return, more leading news ahead, here on Supreme Master Television! Vegan leader: beautiful dream world.Hi, kind viewers, it’s Cameron the vegan Crested Barbet!

Study finds natural sounds benefit health. Dr. Rachel Buxton, a conservation scientist at Carleton University in Canada, conducted a meta-analysis of 36 studies, examining the effects of natural sounds, such as wind, water and birds, on health. When people listened to these sounds, their feelings of stress and annoyance, on average, decreased by 28%. Water sounds were the most beneficial in reducing heart rate, pain and blood pressure by a remarkable 23%. Amazingly, a more than 180% health improvement in terms of better mood and cognitive performance as well as other measures was found in groups that listened to sounds from nature. Thank you, Dr. Rachel Buxton, for your beneficial study. In Divine support, may we cherish and protect all natural areas around our beautiful Earth as they help us to feel calm and peaceful inside.

The state recently became the 14th nation in the European Union to prohibit the raising of animals for fur. There will be a transition period with all such activity ending by 2026 at the latest. The move came after 12 years of discussions on the topic and extensive campaigning by Estonian animal rights activists. The United Kingdom government, which previously outlawed breeding animals for fur in 2003, is now examining whether to ban the import of fur as well. Currently, the UK allows fur from other countries to be sold, yet only 3% of the people in the United Kingdom actually wear it and 72% of citizens support further restrictions. Our commendation and appreciation, Estonia and United Kingdom, for your loving actions to protect our beautiful animal co-inhabitants. We pray that all nations will soon prohibit fur entirely to ensure our animal friends can live their lives in peace and dignity, in God’s protection. The key to looking young is a good laugh! Join us for our joke of the day entitled “Baby’s Voice.” Anthony came over to visit his friend Bobby one afternoon, when he saw Bobby with his baby brother, concentrated on doing something. “What are you up to?” “Oh, I’m just recording my baby brother’s voice.” “What would you do that for?” “Well, when he grows up, I’m going to play it for him and ask him what he was talking about!” And now we have a heartline from Ngọc Huệ in Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam: On December 18, 2020, our Beloved Master shared with us Her beneficial insights on Covid-19, on Noteworthy News’ Fly-In News titled “U.S. President Donald Trump is Good for the World.” This is Heaven’s screening based on the law of Cause and Effect, which is very heartbreaking but necessary. I hope that Supreme Master Television continues to broadcast this kind of information, so that humanity can understand and switch to the more compassionate diet. Also, I humbly hope that the presidents, the leaders in the world, will turn to peace, so that all the tragic situations will never happen again. I also hope that the training to kill enemies in the army will be stopped forever. We don’t need to prepare to kill anyone anymore. On Between Master and Disciples that day, Master mentioned that we disciples should meditate to help to clean the world, for the liberation of ourselves and our nine generations. I am very impressed by Your advice saying that we should not be negative to Master and other initiates, if we don’t want to cause bad effects to ourselves and our nine generations. If possible, we should support Master in our hearts. Your lecture this time was excellent, and I liked it very much. Via this heartline, I would like to encourage those who didn’t see it to watch the program titled: “We Are Transparent in the Eyes of the Universe.” I lovingly send this heartline to Master and the Supreme Master Television team. Ngọc Huệ from Âu Lạc (Vietnam) Considerate Ngọc Huệ, Our appreciation for your heartline. We join you in hope and prayer for peace on Earth and thank you for your caring words and advice. We pray the Universal Power protects and supports Master and Her words are heeded by humanity. May you and the precious Aulacese (Vietnamese) people be forever blessed. In Divine Love, Supreme Master TV team P.S. Master replies and applauds your sentiments: “Caring Ngọc Huệ, I can feel your love and good heart and am grateful to have initiates such as yourself who do listen and hear, knowing I speak only out of Love for you, for all peoples, and the animal kingdom. May Heavens bring you and beautiful Âu Lạc (Vietnam) much serenity and bliss.” We welcome your heartlines, stories and or cute, loving animal clips.

That day I came here to challenge You. I shot swords of light at You. And You melted them all. Master’s Buddha light filled the entire hall. My swords turned soft and fell. Turned soft? (Yes.) Like a noodle. Not a sword. The Buddha light dissolved the swords of light. Their light merged together. So it became harmless. (Yes.) That’s good! Master: After the Song dynasty it was the Liang dynasty, right? Is that right? (Pardon?) (Yuan dynasty.) Q(f3): Song, and then Yuan. Master: Yuan dynasty? It is! Huh? (Pardon?) No, no. We’re talking about something else. It has nothing to do with you. (OK.) Q(f3): Five dynasties and ten kingdoms. Q(f1): Oh. What you’re discussing does not concern me. Master: Hmm. I’m talking about something else with her. (Oh. OK.) Master: Then what about my other lives? (Other lives?) The one before being a monk. (The one before…) Master: If you can’t see that far in the past, check out a more recent one. Anything? Q(f1): The more recent one… The more recent one is now! Master: A little more recent. (A little more recent?) Not more recent. From this time to that... Q(f1): Oh I see, there’s no more. Master: Then before that? (Before that?) Did you think that I was only a monk for one lifetime in China? Q(f1): No. You had affinity with China many times. Master: What kind of affinity? (Complicated affinities.) Q(f3): The relationship is really… might still be thinking. Master: Tell me using your magic, not by guessing! (OK.) It’s not fiction. Q(f1): Many affinities. You were once a king. And also… Master: Which king? (An emperor.) Master: Which one? (Yes?) Which one? Q(f1): I saw in Your body that You were a king in one lifetime. I saw You dressed in a dragon robe. Only kings could wear that. Q(f3): She saw You dressed in a dragon robe. So You were a king. Master: Yes. But which emperor was that? (Which emperor…) Which one? (Which emperor…) Master: Which dynasty? Q(f1): Which dynasty… Let me check it out at home, OK? Master: You seem to have no magic at all. I could say that too. Q(f1): I have to go home and meditate more on the Sound. Then I’ll have more power to look into Your previous lives. Master: You don’t need to have a very high level to see my previous lives. (Really?) You can see this if you go to the Buddha City. No need to meditate more on the Light and Sound. No big deal. Master: Is there anyone who knows about my previous lives in China? Raise your hand. Q(f1): We have many fellow initiates with magical power. Master: Yes, you can see everything. (Yes, Master, I’d like to escape, too, but I can’t.) Master: Does anyone go to such a place to see? Come up! Come here. If you make mistakes, I’ll cut off your hair. Force you to be a nun. Anything else you want to say? Please wait a moment. She wants to say something. Q(f1): Master, I have a request. I want to be a nun. Master: Don’t take advantage of this opportunity! You haven’t shown us much magic. And now you want to be a nun with nothing to offer. Go home to do some research. (After that…) It has to be correct. (Then I can be a nun?) Master: If you are correct, I’ll accept you as a nun. (OK.) It’s because you do have a little talent. Q(f1): Thank You, Master. Master: It’s all right. Master: Now tell me! Can’t hear you. I can’t hear. Pass her another “magical tool.” It’s called a “long broad tongue,” which is very loud. Q(f4): Hi! Master: Ah! Q(f4): Sorry, it's too loud. Master, Master, were You the Sixth Patriarch Hui Neng? Master: I don’t understand. Q(f3): She said, were You Hui Neng, the sixth Zen Patriarch? Master: Why do you ask me? Q(f4): During Your lecture at Shih Jian Hall, I saw You appear as Master Hui Neng. You looked very old. Master: How could you tell it was Hui Neng? Many monks were old. Q(f4): He was short. He was just over 160 cm tall.Master: Hmm… I wouldn’t know. Did he look like me? (His hair was white.) Q(f3): With grey hair. Master: When people get old, their hair turns white. You cannot tell by that. (Thank You.) Master: OK. I won’t tell you the answer. You saw the image and had to ask me! If I say yes, people would say I am bragging. What to do? I cannot prove it. The only similarity is that we both cannot write Chinese, we can only speak it. There’s no other similarity. Do I look like him? Q(f4): You’ve already changed into another physical body. Of course, it looks different. Master: Looks different? (Yes.) Master: OK, never mind. I was a monk in the Song Dynasty. But why was I also a monk in the Liang Dynasty? You are making me out to be a monk life after life. It’s too boring! (I saw You appear like that.) Master: Maybe I was... I’ll look into it. (OK, thank You.) Master: You’re welcome. I also suspected that a little. Who else? It seems that I have deep affinities with the Chinese. I’ve been in China many times. One time I was an emperor. It was not fun being an emperor. It was most pathetic. However, some emperors are very enlightened. They were wise emperors. They were loyal to the country and took good care of the people. They were selfless and sacrificed for their people. They truly cared. Some Chinese emperors were truly like that. Yes or no? (Yes.) Like the Qianlong Emperor of the Qing Dynasty. He was good, wasn’t he? I know little about others, only him. He had a dignified presence and was both strong and intellectual. He was elegant, kind and loving. He did nothing wrong. He did everything right. Other emperors had both merits and shortcomings. Is that right? But he seemed to have only merits. He had just one weakness when it came to beautiful women. But that’s like every man, isn’t it? Nevertheless, his feelings were pure. He just liked to look at them and chat with them. He didn’t do anything to them, did he? It was nothing. He was just making friends and offering them help. Because he was attracted to their beauty, he was able to learn about their grievances. And he helped them by the way. He left after helping them. It was OK. It was good. Master: So, any more you want to tell me? The “challenger.” The Taoist. Wait. The “Taoist” who came to challenge me that day, became the “challenger.” And what happened? Gave up? Q(f1): That day I came here to challenge You. I shot swords of light at You. And You melted them all. Q(f3): They wanted to have a magic duel with Master. They kept projecting light (Yes.) which Master all caught. (I shot light at You like a sword.) They projected swords of light. Master: Swords of light? (Yes.) Ah! If I had known that, I would not have dared to show up that day. I have aging eyesight and saw nothing. Otherwise, I would have been trembling in fear. Then what happened? Q(f1): Master’s Buddha light filled the entire hall. My swords turned soft and fell. Master: Turned soft? (Yes.) Like a noodle. Not a sword. Q(f1): The Buddha light dissolved the swords of light. Master: Their light merged together. So it became harmless. (Yes.) That’s good! Q(f1): Yes. My magic swords could not hurt You. No magic, Taoist or otherwise, works on You. Master: Doesn’t work? (No.) Really? (Yes.) That’s great! (Yes.) Wonderful! You Taoists are so mean. I’ve never offended you. Why did you shoot swords at me? Really! I didn’t even know you. And now you ask to become one of our nuns. How scary! To bring an enemy into my house. I have to think about it now. I have to reconsider your request. It’s so scary. Q(f1): I am now Your disciple. I can leave my past behind and learn the Quan Yin Method with Master. The Quan Yin Method is the ultimate Method. It is the only way to reach Buddhahood. If I really want to strengthen my Taoist power, then I have to practice the Quan Yin Method. Q(f3): If one wants to master the Taoist power one has learned before, then one has to practice the Quan Yin Method. Master: Of course! (The original Taoists also practiced this Method. That’s how they developed these abilities.) Yes. (If I want to reach their level, if I want to go higher, I also have to practice the same method of enlightenment.) Master: Wait a moment. Q(f3): She said that if you want to learn and reach the same level as the Zen Patriarch, you have to be like them, to learn the same method that’ll make you enlightened. Master: Yes. (Yes.) The original Taoists also practiced the Quan Yin Method. You know? (Yes.) They were also Enlightened Masters. They would put aspirants through some tests before accepting them as disciples. There were different levels of apprenticeship. You know? Beginners would learn the magic of mopping the floor, cleaning the toilet, and carrying water. Later, they learned faster spells like summoning wind and rain. It was useful. It was needed at that time. In the old times, they lived in very simple houses. At big spiritual gatherings, people had no place to stay. During the assembly, sorcery was used to dispel the clouds and postpone the rain. But it sapped their energy, leaving them physically exhausted. It was not easy. They couldn’t do it at will. Besides, they were beginners, and many were not vegan and not strict with their diets. They did as they pleased! Those were not real disciples, just followers. So they just did what they wanted. That was why they were exhausted after using magical power. They did not have much endurance like us vegans. And they were easily disturbed by demons. Demons respect vegans, who have more love. Fairies, demons, ghosts and deities, all respect people with morals. They dare not hurt us. If they do, it’s a grave sin for them and nobody can save them. So, they dare not do that. They rarely do. For example, in our society, thieves and robbers only rob the ordinary citizens. They dare not rob the presidential office or from high officials. Because if they were caught, it would be the end for them. Do you know what I mean? It’s like that. OK, continue. Q(f1): There’s one more thing. On the day I challenged You, the swords of light I shot were very short because my level was very low at that time. The sword was about 3 inches (7.6 cm) long. The length of the sword depends on your power. Master: I don’t understand! Q(f3): She said as for the power, the more powerful you are, the longer the sword of light is. (That’s right.) The light can be an inch, or two or three inches long. Master: What about her? Q(f3): She hasn’t spoken yet. Master: How long was your sword? (The one I shot at Master was about this long.) This long? Wow! It was very powerful! (Yes. I saw a photo of You on that day, which was…) Master: Not bad! You have to practice for a long time before you can manifest a sword this long. You must have practiced since childhood. (Yes, from childhood.) Master: And you were not vegetarian, no? (No.) Master: It’s really not easy! Not bad! Most people can only manifest a needle, like the pin on your ID card. Understand? Q(f3): A sewing needle. Master: Only a sewing needle. That’s not bad! Thankfully, it didn’t hurt me. It was long enough to go through my head. And possibly hit another person behind me. Q(f1): This sword can also penetrate spiritual bodies. Q(f3): She said even spiritual bodies can be penetrated. Master: Yes, yes. Q(f1): Yes. The other day, I saw a photo of You holding the Sword of Wisdom. The power it emitted was immense. Master: Which photo? Q(f3): There’s a picture of Master holding a Sword of Wisdom. (The one with the Sword of Wisdom. The Wisdom Sword of Manjushri Bodhisattva.) Master: What sword? The knife I used to cut the Christmas cake? (Yes.) That was the Sword of Wisdom? It was for cutting the cake. How powerful could it be? Q(f1): It had tremendous light. Then I realized, if I wanted my swords of light… Master: It’s just a good kitchen knife. Maybe it was the reflection of light. (No.) What did it have to do with me? Q(f1): It was Your Buddha light… Master: You can just find the… (The kitchen knife.) The kitchen knife shop. Q(f1): No, it’s not that. It shone with the brilliant Buddha light from within You. The power came from You. Master: I was just cutting the cake. No big deal. Q(f1): That’s what I saw. Master: Did you see clearly? I was just cutting cake to give to people. It was not magic, not like you shooting swords. Nothing like that. Q(f1): Yes. Everything You do is magical. It’s just that sometimes Master cannot hide it. So it reveals itself. Master: I cannot hide it? (No.) Then what can I do? Q(f1): I saw Your Sword of Wisdom. It was very bright. So, I thought to myself that I had to practice the Quan Yin Method if I wanted to have a sword that emits bright light. That’s the only way. Q(f3): She saw that the light from Master’s Sword of Wisdom is very strong. She thought that if she herself wanted to have that kind of light, she had to practice the Quan Yin Method. There’s no other way. Master: Really? (Yes.) You are a wise person! Q(f1): It’s due to Your blessings. Master: And then? (Then...) You could not shoot the sword. Then what happened? Q(f1): I did shoot it, but then it was dissolved by Your light. Master: Dissolved? (Yes.) Then what did you do? Q(f1): I was helpless and didn’t know what to do. Master: So you just sat there. Q(f1): Originally, I came here to expose You. I saw that… Q(f3): Originally she wanted to check if Master has a flaw. She wanted to reveal Master’s flaw. Master: Oh! You wanted to see me fall and have everyone laugh about it. But I did not fall. Q(f1): You were too powerful! Master: I can’t help it. I am sorry for that. (No, no.) I didn’t do it on purpose. (I know.) Master: If you had told me earlier, I would have pretended to fall. It would have been fun. You’re a bad actor! We could have put on a show. You could not act alone. If you had asked me, “Today I am going to shoot You. Please fall down for a moment.” I’d have done it for you. No big deal. Q(f1): That was before my initiation. I was trying to convert the sister back to I-Kuan Tao. It was me who introduced her to I-Kuan Tao. But before I came to Hsihu, the celestial being or deity in Taoism told me, “You can practice the Quan Yin Method.” Master: He was so candid? (Yes. He said that I could practice the Quan Yin Method. So before I came, before I received initiation, I asked Master Ji Gong.) Q(f3): She asked Master Ji Gong before coming to You. Master: What did he say? (He did not say anything. The next day, he called my name. I had practiced I-Kuan Tao for three years, working very hard. Then Master Ji Gong called my name three times. “A-cai, A-cai….”) Master: So her name is A-cai. (Yes, my name is A-cai. I knelt down and kowtowed three times. Then he said, “You are ready for Buddhahood.” When I heard that, I cried.) Q(f3): She kowtowed to Master Ji Gong three times. Then Master Ji Gong said to her, “You are ready for Buddhahood.” Then she cried. Master: Ah! (Yes.) Why did Master Ji Gong cry? You are going to be a Buddha, so why did he cry? Q(f3): It’s she who cried. Master: Oh, you cried? (Yes, I cried.) Master: Ah! This means that you could practice the Quan Yin Method? (Yes. Only the Quan Yin Method can make us Buddhas.) Master: How did you know? (Because…) Master: Did you ask him whether or not you could practice the Quan Yin Method? Q(f1): I asked him whether I could get initiation from You, and he kept silent. Master: That’s right. That was his answer. Q(f1): Yes, but I didn’t understand until he told me to go ahead and be a Buddha. Then I cried.

In his early years, the beloved Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh worked unsuccessfully at various jobs. At the beginning of 1888, he travelled to Arles, and found sanctuary in the warm sun and vibrant colors of Provence. On May 1 of that year, Vincent rented part of the so-called "Yellow House,'' where he dreamt of making a "Studio of the South'' and of starting an artists’ collective community. His

In today’s news, New Zealand sends relief aid for refugees in Bangladesh and Myanmar, research from Germany shows freshwater systems could take millions of years to recover, United States engineers develop robot dog to help rescuers, Australian study shows greenery around schools enhances children’s academic performance, conservationist in Âu Lạc, also known as Vietnam, wins prestigious award for saving endangered pangolins, leading TV news channel reports about animal livestock industry’s damage to the planet, and rare seahorse sighted in UK waters. Bangladesh and Myanmar receive humanitarian assistance from New Zealand. The New Zealand government is donating US$4 million to support United Nations agencies and non-governmental organizations in Bangladesh that aid refugees and their host communities. The funds will benefit 1.3 million vulnerable people in the country, including programs for women and girls. In addition, US$2 million will assist 336,000 conflict-affected people in Myanmar. The Honorable Nanaia Mahuta, New Zealand’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, who announced the total US$6 million fund, also called for an end to the strife in Myanmar and a return to civilian rule. New Zealand is a recipient of Shining World Leadership Awards for Compassion and Peace, and a laureate of two Shining World Leadership Awards for Climate-Change Mitigation, and Shining World Leadership Awards for Earth Conservation, Earth Protection, Earth Guardian, and Earth Restoration. Thank you, New Zealand, for your wholehearted help to our brothers and sisters in Bangladesh and Myanmar. May they find peace and stability to rebuild their lives, in Heaven’s blessings. Humans’ harmful effect on freshwater ecosystems could take millions of years to undo. International researchers, led by the Justus Liebig University Giessen in Germany, have discovered that even if the destructive biota human activity were to stop today, it could take millions of years for freshwater ecosystems to recover. The researchers studied fossilized and living gastropods, which are invertebrate animals including slugs and snails, and determined that their current rate of extinction is 300% greater than that of the mass extinction that occurred when the dinosaurs were eliminated. Following the asteroid strike that marked that period, it had taken over 12 million years for ecosystems to stabilize. Thank you, international researchers, for your sobering study. We pray that all agricultural and economic systems will soon switch to sustainable vegan models as the quickest way to reverse the loss of life, in Divine compassion. Up next, United States engineers develop robot dog to help rescuers. Let’s pause for a little while to appreciate the ballet dancers, who represent beauty, grace, and expressiveness through motion. We’ll be right back with more helpful news on Supreme Master Television. Vegan: An instinctive response.Respectful viewers, I am Sherwood the vegan Black & Rufous Elephant Shrew. People say I have keen and original insights. Want to enhance your own intuition? Switch over to a wholesome vegan diet like I did! I have a handy tip today. Did you know that you can make certain foods in your pantry last longer by storing them in your refrigerator or freezer instead? For example, nuts and cold-pressed oils such as sunflower oil don’t have a very long shelf life and should be refrigerated. So should whole-grain flours, since they contain bran and germ, which have oils that can quickly go bad. On the other hand, germ and bran are removed from all-purpose flours, therefore these can stay in the pantry. Love you so much for Being Veg and Going Green 2 Save the Planet thus save the world! And thank you for tuning in. Now the weather around the globe. Robot dog could help rescuers see through walls. A University of Florida research team in the United States, led by Dr. Eric Jing Du, is developing a robotic dog that will have the ability to enter buildings and quickly create 3D models of them so that firefighters and other rescuers can effectively see through the walls. The models are then relayed to the emergency personnel via augmented reality goggles, effectively giving them the ability to better navigate through dangerous environments such as when there has been a fire or earthquake. The technology could also be used by civil engineers who need to inspect structures after a disaster. Our applause, Dr. Eric Jing Du and team, for your high-thinking idea to improve the safety of others. We wish for the successful use of your robot to protect lives, in Heaven’s grace. Study in Australia shows greenery around school enhances academic performance. A study of 851 primary schools in the Greater Melbourne area analyzed the correlation of students’ test scores with exposure to greenery and traffic-related air pollution. The five areas of assessment were reading, writing, spelling, grammar and numeracy. The researchers found that students in greener areas with low traffic levels had higher scores in reading, numeracy and grammar, while higher exposure to traffic-related air pollution was linked to poorer test performance. Thank you, researchers, for highlighting the need for green spaces around schools to boost students’ learning experience. May your study encourage building planners and governments to invest in healthier educational environments for our precious children, in God’s loving guidance. Aulacese (Vietnamese) environmentalist receives prestigious award. The 2021 Goldman Environmental Prize for Asia was recently awarded to Nguyễn Văn Thái, founder of Save Vietnam’s Wildlife. Mr. Nguyễn was honored for his organization’s exceptional efforts in rescuing almost 1,600 pangolins from the multi-billion-dollar illegal wildlife trade between 2014 and 2020. Pangolins are not only critically endangered, they are also the most trafficked animal in the world for their flesh and scales. Mr. Nguyễn and his team’s diligent activities, that cover 330,000 acres of forest at Pù Mát National Park, have resulted in an 80% decline in illegal poaching there. Rescued pangolins are rehabilitated before being released back into the wild and monitored using drone technology. Mr. Nguyễn also helps to raise the public’s awareness on the plight of the gentle pangolins. Congratulations, Nguyễn Văn Thái, on your award and Heaven bless your noble heart. May the innocent pangolins and all wildlife species be evermore safeguarded, in Divine mercy. Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Gladly present the Shining World Compassion Award to Save Vietnam’s Wildlife, plus a US$15,000 humble contribution in support of your heartfelt work to protect the shy, sweet and defenseless pangolins, with love and best wishes for continuing success, in Heaven’s mercy.” Coming up, leading TV news channel addresses animal meat industry’s damage to the planet. We’ll take a short pause to watch people dance to the rhythmic Dominican Bachata, one of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritages of Humanity that belong to the Dominican Republic.

A long-snouted seahorse, also known as the spiny seahorse, was sighted off the British southwest coast near the port city of Plymouth. The Ocean Conservation Trust has been restoring seagrass meadows along the coastline and raising awareness about the environmental importance of seagrass beds. They are home to a host of marine wildlife and absorb 35 times more carbon dioxide than forests, holding it for thousands of years. The Ocean Conservation Trust’s Development Officer Mark Parry, who spotted the seahorse, said: “…it was humbling to experience this rare seahorse sighting, as it highlights the significance of what we’re trying to do with our seagrass restoration work.” Bravo, Ocean Conservation Trust, for your dedicated work. May our glorious oceans and marine life someday be allowed to flourish 100%, in the care of the Providence. Some say laughter is the best medicine, so let’s have a good dose with a joke of the day called, “Being and Nothingness.” A philosopher was sitting at a vegan cafe, revising his draft on “Being and Nothingness.” As he decided to place another order, he said to the waitress: “May I order a cup of coffee, please, with no vegan cream.” “I’m sorry, Sir, but we’re out of vegan cream. How about with no vegan milk?” And now we have a heartline from Han-Yin in Taiwan, also known as Formosa: Dear Beloved Master and Supreme Master Television team, I was initiated in 1991. When I read Master’s teachings and watched “Between Master and Disciples” on Supreme Master TV, Master used to say that God is always blessing all sentient beings and the initiates through visible and invisible beings, such as animals, mountains, rivers and stars. Recently, I had a chance to witness that. One day, my mother cooked rice and vegetables into a porridge. After I took a bowl of that, what was left behind at the bottom of the pot was a little bit of thickened broth forming the shape of a heart. I was so moved upon seeing that even the hair on my flesh stood up. I am very grateful to Master for Her care and Blessings over the past 30 years. Now, my body is failing. I shall leave this world soon. I believe that Master will take me to the New Spiritual Realm. Thank You, Master. With gratitude, Your disciple, Han-Yin from Taiwan (Formosa) Wise Han-Yin, We thank you for reminding us of the constant blessings and miracles we are so fortunate to receive as we journey ever closer to our Godly Home, all by the Grace of Supreme Master Ching Hai. May the Heavens shine down on you and bountiful Taiwan (Formosa), bringing good fortune and abundance. In Buddha’s Love and Blessings, Supreme Master TV team P.S. Master embraces you with Her reply: “Wholesome Han-Yin, yes, I will. After 30 years, I trust you know Master Power will be there to ensure you do not get lost on your journey to your True Home. Much Love and may the Heavenly Beings uplift your spirit and body with wellness and also keep the courageous Taiwanese (Formosan) people well and safe.” We welcome your heartlines, stories and or cute, loving animal clips. Please send them via SupremeMasterTV.com/heartlineIt’s been a joy to spend time with you on Noteworthy News. May beauty and Truth accompany you on life’s journey.

People were very focused on what they were doing. Ancient people lacked material resources, so they had more time to practice. They focused wholeheartedly on their practice. No matter how poor or how tough life was, they were able to continue and had a lot of time to practice qigong and magic, in addition to meditation and spiritual practice. Q(f1): The ones I dispelled? I used to practice I-Kuan Tao before initiation. I brought a friend with me to pursue spiritual practice in I-Kuan Tao but she followed Master instead. So I tried to bring her back. And then I came with her… Master: Can you hear her? Can you hear her clearly? (To our ashram.) Do you understand? (Yes.) What did she say? Grab what? Q(f2): She used to practice I-Kuan Tao… Master: It was a person. (Yes.) I was talking about ghosts! Q(f1): Yes. On the day of my initiation, the ghosts I’d dispelled followed us. They followed us wherever we went. Master: I don’t understand. (Yes.) Oh, the ghosts followed you wherever you went? Why? Q(f1): We were not powerful enough. Q(f2): Not enough power. (No.) Master: They meant to take revenge, yes? You chased after them before, now they chase after you, right? Q(f1): No, they followed us so that they could have… Master: What? The last sentence. Repeat again. Q(f1): The last sentence? When we drew magic symbols to dispel ghosts, the ghosts would remember us. Wherever we went, they would… Sometimes we also asked them to look up things for us. Q(f2): She asked the ghosts to help her to check something. Master: To check things? (Yes.) Like a spy? I have never heard of ghost spies! Ah, that could be helpful. It’s better because no one can see them. (No.) No gun or sword can hurt them. (That’s right.) And then? (Then…) And they can check out a lot of secrets. (Yes.) That’s right! (Yes.) Because no one can see them. (Yes.) And people would tell all their secrets. (Yes.) Yeah, they can hear. (Yes.) Even if no one knows, (Yes.) the ghosts will know, as will the gods. (Yes.) And then? Q(f1): Then I came to Hsihu to receive initiation from Master. It was on Your birthday last year. You were dressed in white. You came out in the evening. Master: Who was in white? (You were, Master. You were wearing white.) I didn’t… (You were also wearing a white round hat.) Was I? Q(f2): Yes, last year. (May 12th.) Master: I wore white last year? Q(f1): Yes, last year. (Last year… The strapless…) Master: Oh, the strapless suit. (Yes.) With the shoulders exposed? (Yes.) And then? Q(f1): Before You arrived at the hall, I saw a brilliant light filling the hall. Master: What did you say? Speak clearly. Q(f1): When Master walked toward the hall, there seemed to be a very bright light. I did not know what it was until You walked into the hall. And then I realized that it was You, Supreme Master Ching Hai. Master: I don’t understand. Q(f1): When you came up to the stage, You came on the stage and Your body turned dark in three minutes. Master: Wait. Q(f2): She said that it was on Master’s birthday last year that… (Say it slowly.) She saw Master… Master: I was bright in the beginning, but became dark after coming on to the stage? (Yes.) Yeah! I knew! (Yes.) You saw all this when I came on the stage. (Yes.) Q(f1): You were like a huge magnet, attracting all the karma from us. Q(f2): You were like a magnet attracting all the karma from people. Master: Yes. And then? Q(f1): The ghosts we had dispelled before followed us. They were touched by Master’s love and light and ascended to another world. I asked them, “Aren’t you going to follow me?” They said, “No, we want to go to a better place. We’ll stop following you.” Master: Wait. (Yes.) What did she say? Q(f2): She said… Master: It’s strange, I could not hear her! Q(f2): Those things she learned from Taoism. Master: Yes. (Speak slowly.) Q(f2): The ghosts followed her here. Master: OK. Q(f2): And then they ascended to somewhere higher. Master: Who? (The ghosts.) So the ghosts dared not stay here? Q(f1): No, it’s not because they dared not stay here. It’s because Master’s Love elevated their spiritual levels. Master: OK! Understand. (Yes.) So they rose from their previous level. (Yes. The dark level.) They preferred… (Brighter places.) Somewhere higher. (Yes.) Yeah, understand. They realized that their world was not good. (Yes.) They should not be attached to that any more. I understand now. (Yes.) OK, then? Q(f1): Actually, in the beginning, I was here to challenge You with magical power. Master: What did she say? Q(f2): She wanted to challenge You. Master: Really? Now you can. You should have come up earlier when I asked you. I knew you wanted to challenge me. I am giving you a chance now, yet you won’t take up the challenge. You see, now it’s clear. It’s not that I was curious to see magical power. Some people really wanted to challenge me. That is, before they were initiated. If I didn’t accept the challenge, they would have regrets. This is why I asked you to show us what you’ve got. But you didn’t come up. OK! Now you can take this chance. Q(f1): No. I realized that Master is too powerful. Compared to Your power, my small magic is nothing. I am no match for Master. Master: So you forgo the challenge. Q(f1): I cannot be Your opponent. I can only be Your disciple. Master: What did she say? Q(f1): I can only be Master’s disciple. I cannot compete with Master. Q(f2): She can only be Master’s disciple. She cannot compete with Master. Master: Never mind. If you are not going to challenge me, you can still show your power. (Mmm…) OK? (I really dare not.) It’s OK! Just for fun. Just like some people sing for me, some dance with their sword, or perform martial arts, (That’s right.) like qigong. (Yes.) You can show us your magical power. Q(f1): Brother Chen told me that Master said only visible magic can be performed, but not invisible magic like drawing magic symbols and fortune telling. Only the magic of flying in the air or tunneling through the earth is allowed. Master: I don’t understand. Q(f2): Please say it again. Master: Can you understand? (Yes.) Some people don’t understand. Can you repeat what you said? Q(f1): Only visible magic can be performed, but not invisible magic. And most of the Taoist magic is invisible. Q(f2): She said that she cannot see any magical power here anymore. Master: No, she did not say that! Come, come. You can go now. Q(f3): She said that brother Chen told initiates at a group meditation in Taoyuan that they could perform their magic here, but only the visible acts. Invisible magic cannot be performed. Master: Yeah. That is what she said. Something is wrong with your hearing! I could not understand her because I am a foreigner. But you are Chinese! No wonder there are lots of international conflicts and disputes. Nothing gets straightened out. (Yes.) Communication problem! Anything else? Hey, Tong, stay here. By the way, are you a Taiwanese (Formosan)? Q(f1): No, I am half Taiwanese (Formosan), half mainland Chinese. Master: No wonder I cannot understand you. What else have you got? Tell me. (Let me think.) It’s OK. You are not exaggerating anything. I just want to know what Taiwanese (Formosan) people usually practice. Q(f1): I feel nervous when I face a real Buddha. I don’t want to be nervous but I can’t control it sometimes. Master: Why? (I…) Buddhas are kind and compassionate. Don’t be afraid of them. (That’s right. But I don’t know why.) You are not scared of ghosts, but you are scared of me. This world is really topsy-turvy. (Yes.) Why is that? Q(f1): Because ghosts would listen to us. So it seems that we are We’re more powerful than ghosts, so they are scared of us. That’s why I am not afraid of them. But I would be scared of someone who is more powerful than me. Q(f3): She said that they’re more powerful than ghosts. So if someone is more powerful than them, they become frightened. (Yes.) Master: OK. But I won’t take you by force. (I know.) Anything else? (Yes?) Anything else? Any more magic? Master: Her story is interesting, isn’t it? She does have her reasons to practice Taoism but it’s just that they are too attached to magic. (Yes, yes.) Sorcery was also a kind of science. Do you know that? Spiritual practitioners lived in one corner of the world. (Yes.) You know? (Yes.) In the old times, we did not have airplanes. (That’s right.) No cars, for example. Since we didn’t have cars, it was not easy to travel. (That’s right.) That’s why people practiced... (Magic.) Flying in the air or traveling under the earth was much faster. (Yes.) It was much faster to run or protect themselves. Because in the old times people were more barbaric. They would kill anyone who looked weird. There were not many laws to protect the victims. Many of the officials were corrupt. Is it a rascal? (A corrupt official.) How to say it? A corrupt official? There were a lot of corrupt officials. (Yes.) People could be killed anytime. That was why they had to learn that kind of science to protect themselves. It was called magic. That was why. And they had to heal themselves by learning how to take the pulse and work on acupressure points. It was necessary in those times. That was one aspect of their practice. People were very focused on what they were doing. Ancient people lacked material resources, so they had more time to practice. They focused wholeheartedly on their practice. No matter how poor or how tough life was, they were able to continue and had a lot of time to practice qigong and magic, in addition to meditation and spiritual practice. The later generations forgot to cultivate their morality. Instead of searching for inner wisdom, they became attached to magical power. For example, in the old times, the new disciples had to learn some magic in order to do menial tasks more efficiently, like chopping firewood, fetching water from rivers, or delivering messages. Running errands for the Master, or serving as a messenger relaying information, in order to earn merits. The Master chose disciples who were loyal, competent and efficient, who were quick learners, who were humble with their magic and kept good morals. He would only teach these disciples the supreme dharma. Now some disciples are not so patient. They just learn the magic and leave to form a sect. They’re impatient after waiting too long for the Masterto teach them the highest method. They are content with their magical power. They go out to form another sect, which later becomes a sect for magic. Understand? (Yes.) And people come just to learn magic, which they find more appealing. So, people misunderstand them and regard Taoists only as sorcerers. It’s not like that! The original Taoists also practiced the Quan Yin Method. (Yes.) You can tell from Tao Te Ching. Master: OK, continue speaking. Q(f1): Another thing that Master just talked about was telling a person’s past by taking his pulse. Master: Yes. Q(f3): Speak slowly. Q(f1): Some people see others’ karma with the eye. Another method is to take the pulse. Then time seems to move backwards and you can see people’s past lives. You can tell which dynasty that person had been born into in previous lives and what he had done. Master: To check out their karma? (Yes.) To look into the past. Q(f1): Yes. It can only be done with an innate ability. Master: Can you do it? Which dynasty can you see? Tell me. Did you learn that? Q(f1): I can do it by measuring the pulse. I didn’t learn it. Q(f3): She didn’t learn it. Master: So you can do that? Q(f1): I have been meditating by myself since I was very little. Master: Understand. Q(f1): I did some mudras without knowing what I was doing. I was naive at that time. I did not realize I was meditating, until I saw Buddhists meditating during their 7-day retreat. When I graduated from middle school, I went to a Taoist temple and the abbot asked me to be his disciple. That’s how I started. Master: Can you understand her? What did she say? Q(f3): She has been meditating since she was young. Master: I knew it. And then? Q(f3): She went to a Taoist temple to learn meditation after graduating from junior high school. Master: Wait a minute. You meditated, and? Q(f1): They told me that I would gain some magical abilities after practicing meditation. Master: I asked whether or not you could see people’s past. (Yes, I can.) You look at me for so long and haven't answered me yet. (Yes, I can.) You can? (Yes.) OK, now tell me about my past. In which dynasty did I live? Who was I and what did I do in previous lives? (You were…) This is not my first time in this world, you know? (Yes, I know.) Yeah. (OK.) So? Q(f1): Now You are full of light and I can see nothing but a Buddha. Q(f3): She said that Master is full of Light. Now she can only see Buddha and nothing else. (Yes.) Master: You think I’ve never been here before? (You…) You think I’ve never been to this world? Q(f1): Yes, You have. Many times. You have come and gone many times. Master: OK, now look into my previous lives. What kind of job did I have? Have I ever been Chinese? (Yes.) When? If you say it wrong, I’ll cut off your hair. Check out what I did in China. Just the last life. (The last life?) Don’t take too long. (Before this life?) Yes. In your previous life… What did I do in China? Q(f1): You were a monk. Q(f3): You were a monk. Master: A monk? Q(f1): A famous Master. Yes, a Master. Q(f3): A Master. Master: What was his name? (I don’t know.) Hmph! (I only know that the Master’s level was very high.) How high? Q(f1): You mean when? During the Song Dynasty. Q(f3): Song Dynasty. Master: Was there any famous Master from the Song Dynasty? Q(f1): I am not familiar with the Buddhist Masters, only the Taoist ones. I have no idea. Master: What did she say? Q(f3): She only knows about Taoist masters, not Buddhist ones. Master: OK. Look it up when you go home. (I’ll do that.) Otherwise, it’s too vague. We don’t know who it was. (OK, I’ll check when I go home. Is that all right, Master?) Yes. (Yes?) OK, tell us next week. (Tell You next week.) Tell us next week. (OK.)

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!
