But the more we practice well, the purer our heart is, the better the government will be and the more they will believe, “Okay, you are on the right path because you have become a better citizen than before.” “You understand more now, and you don’t bother your neighbor or the government. You know what the right things are, what the good things are.” I think that you are my representatives. Through you, the government or your neighbors will know who I am. It doesn’t matter whether I come back or not. Over there, you do good deeds and avoid bad things, and you are good citizens. Then, of course, the government will know, “Okay, learning from Master Ching Hai, studying with Auntie Hài is very good.” We always said that the government has to be good for the people to be good. It's not so. It's not so. If our karma (retribution) is bad, even if we have a good government, they can't do anything for us.
