Each time you go to the ashram, leave all your garbage outside, and then smile. Sometimes we force ourselves to smile, which is also useful. (True.) Because our cells are “stupid.” They just follow the signals. Seeing that the cells at the corners of your mouth are turned up to smile, the cells of your whole body will think: “Ah! It’s time to smile.” Then all the cells of your body smile together. If you have a microscope, you’ll see that all your cells are smiling. Then our smile becomes natural. Our spirits will rise, and we’ll be in a better mood. […]

Here, I am also… influenced by you. Everyone moves together. It’s strange. It’s different when I sit up there. Each time I come here, it’s always… I feel influenced by you and become different, really contaminated. Hey! No! I’m sorry. My Chinese is terrible. What I mean is you’re very good at blessing others. They are dead once you bless them – half dead, not that bad. I have to run, or else I’ll die here. It’s very dangerous to be together with you; I will die sooner or later. If not now, I’ll die when I’m old. Who are you? Who? No. You look very much like her, but no. How come you look more and more like each other after practicing spiritually? I cannot tell who is who. Everyone is fat and round. More or less the same. You look even more alike when meditating. Everyone has become one. Including me, also becoming one with you. Alright, you know what to do now?

I read the paper today. There’s an American newspaper that specializes in gossip. I saw some strange stories. It said that… just now, yesterday, we saw what Tong has talked about, didn’t we? (Yes.) He said that… It wasn’t Tong who said it. He told me about the book. He has free time and can become a philosopher any day. Sometimes, when he comes to pick me up, he chats randomly. He said he read it, and I said I talked about it before. I said that we’re affected by whoever is sitting beside us. That’s how it is. It’s been proven by science. I knew about it long ago. Your Master is a very wise person. I also envy you very much. How did you get such a wonderful Master? If I had such a Master, how nice it would be. (Yes.) It turned out I didn’t have the best luck. I’m specialized in being that kind of Master.

OK. Today, I was reading one of those tabloid newspapers. It’s called “boulevard,” “boulevard” newspaper. It’s a kind of… newspaper for grocery shopping. You can buy groceries and read it at the same time. There’s nothing important that needs your full attention. It said something similar to what we were discussing yesterday about contamination. For example, it stated, “What a strange thing that the atmosphere of depression will affect us.” It claimed there is a kind of bacteria called “miserable bacteria.” I only knew there was a kind of Buddha called a miserable Buddha. And now they’ve discovered there are miserable bacteria. Very strange! It said if we sit next to someone who’s depressed, the germs will be in the air and come to us. Then, after we go home, we’ll feel miserable without knowing why. We might even get upset right away. It depends on the quantity and strength of the bacteria.

There is a kind called instantly miserable – instantly. Instantly miserable bacteria. Another kind is called chronic bacteria. Some are called immediately miserable bacteria. Ah, that’s about the same as “instantly” (meaning “on the horse” in Chinese). Maybe it’s “on the cattle.” Some are miserable on the cattle, meaning slower, like cattle-people. Cattle-people are slower, and horse-people are faster. Some are called “on the horse-people,” “on the cattle-people,” and some “on slowness.” All of these are no good. Therefore, when you see anyone looking miserable, please don’t go near, OK? Wear a face mask and gloves. Just kidding, don’t do that. People would think you are an idiot. I mean, that’s what they said. They said the bacteria of feeling miserable will infect us. That’s why sometimes, for no apparent reason, when we go somewhere and see someone, we’re in a bad mood after coming home. Or when you’re near some people, you just want to… you want to die. At least you want to go to Miaoli for meditation, meaning you don’t want to see your husband or wife. You don’t want to see anything, which means you are sick or have heatstroke. Then you should go home to take a shower and drink more water. Recite the Five Holy Names, meditate, and do Quan Yin. OK?

Truly, that’s what it said. It said to avoid those people, avoid them as much as you can. Don’t touch them. This is what they said, “Do not touch them or be close to them.” You see, what I say is always correct. I didn’t read that before… OK, OK, OK, OK. I didn’t read the… the what? (Newspaper.) Before that article was published, I told you already. Don’t let people touch you, don’t make eye contact. It’s also not good to look into people’s eyes. Didn’t I tell you so? (Yes.) See how wonderful your Master is, I told you already. It said, “If you touch those people’s hands, wash your hands right away.” It’s so extreme. If I were to say that, your husband or wife would complain, “How can your Master be so extreme? You can’t even be touched.” The newspaper said it. I’ll have it printed to show you. Yes, better that way. We’ll print it out in black and white. Then everyone will believe better. Otherwise, whenever I say something, you say, “What is Master talking about? We’ve never heard that before. There’s no scientific proof.”

Some things have been proven by science. Like what I said about collective karma, hasn’t it? (Yes.) Now that book… I’ll ask Tong to get it and copy excerpts for you to read. And at the same time, also copy the article I just told you about. Then you’ll know that what I say, even if there’s no proof yet, is correct. It’s strange. How come there is such a wise person? There’s never enough praise. I have to praise myself because there’s no one to do it. You don’t know how to praise people. You just sit there and clap your hands. Do you think it’s enough for my ego? What’s the point of clapping?

That’s why I told you this story so that you can protect yourselves. (OK.) How do we protect ourselves? Don’t be miserable, which will infect me. Just don’t contaminate me when you come to the ashram. I’m such a clean person. You see, I’m smiling every day, except when I see you. Therefore, be careful. Don’t give me your misery because it’s contagious, understand? In case you… For example, you feel miserable when you come this week, with your face looking long like a horse-person. Hey! No, no! Your face is as long as a sausage. Isn’t it? Like a sausage. Then you come here to infect me. Well, OK, I’m willing to accept that. After infecting me, you become well. But the following week, I have not recovered yet. When you come to see me, I’ll infect you in return. Like a circle, we infect each other. When will it end? Understand or not? (Understand.)

Therefore, when you are at the main gate, do some filtering to see who has a longer face. The responsible ones must carry a measuring… (Tape.) A measuring ruler? (Tape.) A tape measure? (Yes.) Their face should not be longer than 20 centimeters; within 15 centimeters is OK. Seventeen centimeters will also do. If it’s 20 centimeters, throw them out. Don’t make me the bad guy. Understand? (Understand.) Speak for me or press him like this. Press both from above and below this way. Like pressing a sandwich. Maybe their face will become shorter. Then, use two toothpicks to prop them up. If nothing works, then kick them out. Otherwise, everyone will be miserable together, which is not good, especially during group meditation.

OK. Sometimes, we are not in a good mood, which is not wrong. Just don’t bring that kind of mood to the ashram. People come here to meditate only once in a while. They have real hope, great joy and high expectations. Coming here, they want to cleanse their karma and replenish their energy. Then, after they go home, they are recharged for the struggles with everything. So, if you come and ruin things, you’re wasting your own… yes, your precious time. You’re wasting that space, harassing others mentally, and draining the spirit of everyone else. Also… You disrupt the progress of others’ spiritual practice. Look how heavy your karma is. Very heavy. Alright. Understand? (Understand.)

Why do we need to be happy, to be clear, to be clean? First, to protect ourselves. Second, to protect others. Because if you infect him today, next time, he’ll infect you in return. Then, it wouldn’t be possible to purify our group. Therefore, from now on, when you come to the ashram, no matter what has happened to you, leave it outside. There are a lot of garbage bins over there. A lot. You drop the garbage there. If you like it very much, you can still retrieve it later. No one wants your garbage. Does anyone want it? Is there anyone that stupid? Only a masochist would want it. So, from now on, look around to see who has a longer face. Press them a little bit. Or tell them to go to a beauty parlor or a plastic surgeon to have it trimmed. Trim from above or below. Just make it shorter. If their mouth drops down, help them to pull it up by whatever means. Any method is permitted; it’s all legal. But don’t pull too much. They could… react. It’s not good if you violate the (Five) Precepts together.

We have to remind each other, saying, “We should be happy. We’re determined to be happy.” Tell yourself that you decided to seek happiness when you’re here. You’re determined each time you arrive at the gate of the ashram. And then just laugh – not laughing very loud, or you’ll affect the chicken-people next door. Just smile in private. Understand? Smile in private quietly; that’s beautiful, like me. It’s fine if you smile with your teeth showing. Just don’t make noise. Tell yourself to smile. Otherwise, you can go into the bathroom and smile at the mirror. Don’t come out until you are smiling sweetly, beautifully, and happily. Or else you stay inside and continue practicing. Smile and smile until people next to you say, “OK. It’s OK!” Two of you can go in there together and check each other. Or you can bring that tape measure with you. See how many centimeters you’re smiling. I can’t say there’s a standard size because each person has a different mouth. So just use your own judgment, OK? That’s how it is. Every time, do it like that.

Each time we get upset, we have to remind ourselves of this. Or sometimes it’s best to remind each other. Of course, it would be wonderful to do this every day, but sometimes we forget. That’s why we’ll start with the ashram. Once you enter the gate, you smile. When you go back, tell your contact person to get a picture of the smiling Maitreya Buddha and put it in the Center. That’s why there’s a Maitreya Buddha in every temple, to remind people to smile. But as time goes by, they tend to forget. Now, when they see Maitreya Buddha, they cry and bow down to pour out their problems. Then, even Maitreya Buddha can’t smile. That’s why you see His belly getting bigger and bigger. It’s because He’s trying to take away people’s troubles. OK. We don’t want to turn you all into Maitreya Buddha. (Right! Yes!)

Each time you go to the ashram, leave all your garbage outside, and then smile. Sometimes we force ourselves to smile, which is also useful. (True.) Because our cells are “stupid.” They just follow the signals. Seeing that the cells at the corners of your mouth are turned up to smile, the cells of your whole body will think: “Ah! It’s time to smile.” Then all the cells of your body smile together. If you have a microscope, you’ll see that all your cells are smiling. Then our smile becomes natural. Our spirits will rise, and we’ll be in a better mood. Try it, OK? (OK.) Goodbye. See you next week, if you can still smile next week. OK. Take care, everyone. (Thank You, Master.) (Take care, Master.)
