Сута Нипата: Дханя говедарят, част 6 от 9

Сута Нипата: Дханя говедарят, част 6 от 9

Щастлива съм, че съм благословена да мога да напомням на някои хора да живеят добродетелен живот и да спасяват животи освен своя. Да ги спася от страданията на ада и от възмездието в този живот, и да спася живота на някои животни, и да спася може би планетата. Щастлива съм, разбира се, това е различен вид щастие, това е по-голямо щастие.

Сута Нипата: Дханя говедарят, част 5 от 9

Мъдрото нещо е да бъдете като Буда: Погледнете навътре в себе си и разчитайте само на своето Аз, защото вие имате Буда вътре в себе си. Това е човекът, когото трябва да гледате и на когото да разчитате, и да сте щастливи в Неговата компания - своята вътрешна Буда Природа; не гледайте другите хора.

Сута Нипата: Дханя говедарят, част 4 от 9

Буда остава без нищо. Всички Негови представи, предубеждения, изчезнали. И Той бил просто свободен, много семпъл, много нежен, много свободен, просто леещ се. Той живеел за една нощ, тоест, никога не знаеш какво те чака утре. Не го било грижа.

Сута Нипата: Дханя говедарят, част 3 от 9

Аз съм сигурна, че много хора, които ядат месо и пият мляко и такива неща, наистина не знаят това. Иначе не биха искали. Затова, наш дълг е да разпространяваме новината. Да им кажем да гледат „Кравоконспирация”, „Земляни”, „Господство” - филми от този род, за да се събуди състраданието им и да им се каже истината. И така, да знаят истината. По този начин те ще спрат.

Те избрали говедар - човек, който има стадо крави или волове - да се грижи за тях, да ги използва, за да оре земята и за да си изкарва прехраната, разбира се. И тук са стиховете на сравнение между двамата: Просветленият в света, Почитаният от света и говедар.

Да се погрижим за другите преди себе си, част 5 от 5

Вие сте щастливи, защото знаете, че сте добри, ако се грижите за другите преди себе си, при всички случаи. Дълбоко в сърцето си знаете, че вършите правилното нещо и че би трябвало да сте щастливи. Но това не означава, че ситуацията ще се нареди, защото сте добри, защото се грижите за другите, това ще ви направи щастливи.

В Небесата няма нищо за вършене, само се наслаждавате. Тук имаме нужда! Затова Буда е дошъл. Затова Гуру Нанак е дошъл. Затова Исус е дошъл и се е жертвал, умирайки така мъчително. И ние Им благодарим непрекъснато за ученията Им и за всичко. Направете нещо! Направете нещо, за да се отплатите за Тяхната саможертва, за Тяхното страдание, за Техните учения. А не винаги да искаме.

Законът за причината и следствието съществува и все още е в сила. Иначе, всеки ще може да върши всичко, каквото си иска и няма да има наказание. Майа си отиде, но не е изчезнала. Тя ви очаква в ада, за да се присъедините към нея, ако не живеете живота си според добродетелните и морални стандарти - това би навредило на другите.

Вие имате само за себе си, собствената си карма или кармата на семейството си (да изтърпите). Това е само група хора. На вашите пет, шест поколения, аз им помагам; на пет, шест поколения от предшествениците ви вече съм помогнала. Вие изтърпявате само своята карма в този живот. Когато я изплатите напълно, тогава си отивате, взимайки и семейството си, децата си, приятелите си.

Истинското значение на монашеството, част 9 от 9

Истинското значение на монашеството, част 9 от 9

If you want to be liberated, have merit and live in a temple, there is also a lot of work to be done. It’s not that you have to shave your head.I set you free now and let you eat. You can go eat now. I still have a lot of work to do today. Maybe I can’t come to see you. Still a few days to go. Who shall I see tomorrow? Which country has the most people? (Aulacese (Vietnamese).) OK, Aulacese (Vietnamese). Let’s go. Very good. Thank you. Did you understand what I said just now?If she wants to become a nun with you, let her sweep the floor first, clean the toilets, tidy up the garden, mow the lawn and trim the trees in the garden. Don’t just shave your head so quickly and think that you’re great. If you want to be liberated, have merit and live in a temple, there is also a lot of work to be done. It’s not that you have to shave your head. If you just shave blindly without understanding, you can break any one of the 250 precepts, at any time. I’m telling you. You can break the precepts by a slight movement of thought. So, think clearly, it’s not so easy to be a monk or nun. I only broke one precept, which is wearing colorful clothes.Monks cannot wear jewelry or anything valuable. They should only have two or three sets of clothes and one kasaya, that’s it. Plus a bowl, that’s the way it should be. So, think clearly. It’s not like, you just shave your head and it’s done. It’s not that easy. You can break the precepts at any time. Even a slight thought can make you break the precepts. Even when you scrub your body, you can break the precepts. I’m telling you. It’s just that I can’t tell you everything. I can only tell you some. It’s not that easy. If you want to make merits by serving in a temple, you can go and live there, clean the house, clean the toilets, bathrooms, etc. I worked like that when I’d just become a nun. I swept and mopped the floor for others, cleaned the toilets and bathrooms, and cooked for all the monks and the laypeople as well. When people came, I’d cook for them. I didn’t become a nun to be respected or take offerings from others. No. Even just a small thought or action can make you break the precepts. I’m telling you. There are 250 precepts, not just five precepts. Even just Five Precepts, you didn’t keep very well, not to mention 250 of them. You just want to become a monk because they look good, but you don’t have the correct concept of monkhood. If you talk nonsense or do something wrong, you can ruin the reputation of monks. So, think it over. I’m going out. Whoever wants to see me can go out now. I’m a little taller, sitting on this.There was a monk in Japan, he was very good-looking, young and talented. He could paint very well. He painted portraits that looked real. He could draw a face that would look exactly like the person. So, he often painted for others, to make money, to maintain the temple he lived in, or to offer to other temples or other monks. There was a geisha. Japanese geisha. They don’t have physical relations with people. There was a geisha who seemed to have fallen in love with that monk, but she couldn’t have him. So, she tried many ways to approach him. She wanted to test him, and she liked him a lot. So, she asked him to paint her. When he came, she took off all her clothes and asked him to paint. Not just painting her face, or painting her with clothes on. No. She took everything off. She was completely naked, laying there, and asked him to paint her just like that.Well, he carried on and painted her whole body. But before he started, he made the price very high. He said, “You have to pay me this much, if you want me to paint you, otherwise, it’s not worth it.” She paid too, because that geisha had a lot of money. She was willing to pay him anything because she liked him. She wanted to test him, to see if his heart would be shaken. Two or three times before, she tried to tease him, but he ignored her. This time she asked him to paint her, he agreed, but he asked for a lot of money. After he finished and got paid, he took that money and offered it to a temple for maintenance work. Because that temple was very shabby and had no money for repairs, so he gave it all to that temple. After that, he threw his paintbrushes away. From that day on, he stopped painting.Do you Japanese know this story? Does anyone know this story? (It’s the first time I hear it.) First time? I thought you were Buddhists. And you even want to become a monk. When I read this story, I wasn’t a nun yet. I read it when I was little, that’s why I forgot the monk’s name. You are really disciples of the Buddha, "tu” as in “tu-di.” Are you “dust” or are you “soil”? Or maybe stones? Dust is fine, stone is harder. I’m going now. Because the monk thought he had broken the precept. As a monk, he shouldn’t have looked at a naked woman. So, from that day on, he stopped painting. Besides, he had earned what he wanted to earn. Because he used to make a little money at a time, it wasn’t enough. This time, he made a lot of money. It was enough for him to offer to the temple that he wanted to repair. After that, he stopped painting because he thought he had broken the precept. That’s why he stopped doing it. He went to practice spiritually and repent.Bye-bye. (Thank You, Master.) You’re welcome. See you later. (Hallo, Master.) Hallo. But I tell you, breaking precepts doesn’t necessarily mean breaking the precepts. It depends on what’s inside you, not the outer appearance. The Chinese must know this story. The Japanese may not know it, but the Chinese know it for sure. There were two monks who wanted to cross a river. (Yes.) There was a girl who was sick and couldn’t cross to the other side. So, one monk ignored her, while the other monk (Carried her.) carried her across the river. He put her on the other side of the river and walked away. As they walked, after a long while, the other monk couldn’t help it and said: "You are a monk, how could you carry a girl?" The monk said, "I put her down on the river bank a long time ago, but you are still carrying her." Do you understand? (Yes.) OK then. So, forgive me for not keeping this precept strictly.But it doesn’t matter. The Thai and the Burmese, some of them are temporary monks, just like the short-stays and the residents here. Residents are those who stay permanently. Short-stays are those who come and go. People in Thailand become monks for different reasons. If his parents passed away, for instance, he’ll be a monk for a week, a month or a year, in order to give his parents some merits. You understand? (Yes.) Perhaps I’m a temporary monk. It doesn’t matter. Now I look just the same as you, (Hallo, Master. Thank You, Master.) wearing colorful clothes. It doesn’t matter.(Hallo, Master.) Hallo. (Hallo.) See you later. Please watch the road for me. (Yes.) Sometimes it’s uneven. (Yes.) Thanks a lot. Are you cold? You waited for so long. (No.) Hallo! (Hallo, Master.) I wonder if the kitchen has prepared anything today. No? They only prepare on Sunday, right?(Hallo, Master.) Hallo, beautiful boys and girls. (Hallo, Master.) Watch out. Don’t get run over. (Hallo, Master.) Hallo. Be good. (Yes.) Be humble and behave well. So, the kitchen has prepared? (Yes.) OK, I’ll be back in a while. (OK.) It’s OK if we eat later, right? (Yes.) (Thank You, Master.) I cannot give an exact time. My time cannot be fixed like that. Beautiful hat. (Hallo, Master. Thank You, Master.) Hallo! (Hallo, Master.) Hallo, hallo. (Hallo, Master.) Very good. Our temple is not big, but we have many people.Hi, everybody. Thanks for helping. You’ll have a lot of merits. You help the Master and I help you. You may not know, I help quietly. If you do things right, you’ll have merits from helping Master. So, be attentive when you work. I am going now. Guards, thank you, thank you. I’m going now. Take a few more looks. (Hallo, Master.) Love you.

Истинското значение на монашеството, част 8 от 9

Истинското значение на монашеството, част 8 от 9

If you want to become a monk, you have to be truly sincere. Only when you are ready to sacrifice yourself for other people, should you become a monk. Otherwise, if you only want to be liberated from the cycle of birth and death, then you don’t need to become a monk. You can wear ordinary clothes and stay outside in the world, and still get liberated.You? Do you also have a question?(Master, recently there were some fellow initiates who told me that they’d like to become nuns very much. Yes, however…) Why do they want to become nuns? OK, then tell them to sign up for it. (Yes. And one of them just had her head shaved and wore a nun’s robe.) What? (She shaved her head and wore a nun’s robe. I don’t know how to…) Wearing a nun’s robe by herself? (Yes. She shaved her head and wore a nun’s robe.) Where did she go after that? (I don’t know if I should ask them to come up to the stage.) Some people are already monks or nuns. Why do you imitate what they wear? Is it for others to respect you? How come? Is she here? (There are two Korean sisters here.) Korean. Where are they? (One of them didn’t do it voluntarily. So she changed back to ordinary clothes.) Ordinary clothes. (Yes. And I told the other one that she only shaved her head and wore a nun’s robe, but she knows nothing about the precepts that a nun should keep.) That’s true. (I’m quite worried that there’ll be many other fellow initiates who want to do similar things.) Yes. (This morning…) No. No way. (I told her about the entire process. What I did was also to protect our group from bad things that might happen in the future.) Yes. (So, she’s fine now. She repented to Master after knowing that.) She shouldn’t have done that. (And she changed out of the nun’s clothes.)Just be an ordinary person. Why become a nun? They are already nuns, so they just continue to be nuns. Because I don’t want you to change your lifestyle, so, I dress like an ordinary person. Why do you have to change your lifestyle? If you want to be a renunciate with me, you have to sign up for it in advance. And then I’ll see if your destiny is to be a monk or a nun, OK? (OK, thank You, Master.) It’s not that you will become a renunciate by simply shaving your head and wearing a monk’s robe. They probably think that it’s very comfortable sitting here like you, while they can’t see me from sitting in the back. So, they think it’s fun to wear that kind of clothes and sit here. That is deceitful and creates bad karma.(It’s a nun who shaved her head for her. So, I also told that nun…) Who’s the nun? Is she from our group? (Yes. She’s a Korean nun sitting over there. I explained to her and asked her not to shave fellow initiates’ heads anymore.) Don’t do this at random. Her intention was good. She thought that since the sister wanted to become a nun, she should just let her. But let me tell you, you should not act recklessly regarding two things, renunciation and transmitting the Dharma. That’s why at initiation, I tell you not to disclose the information to others. First, you’d hurt yourself, because you don’t have enough power yet and you would collect people’s bad karma. Second, the ones who learned from you did not learn the whole thing, which is not good for them. They can get possessed, etc., because they don’t have enough power. There are already many people outside who haven’t obtained anything yet, but go out to give lectures and transmit the Dharma, leading people astray. That is misguiding people. It’s not right.I had a lot of monks and nuns before, but now many of them have left; not many remain. I told them not to wear monk’s or nun’s clothes anymore, because I saw that they were not devoted to being a monk or nun. So, I told them it’s better not to lie to people. Just wear ordinary clothes; it’s easy and free. No one would expect how you should behave, if you’re not a monk or nun. Understand? Carefree. Not to mention, if you want to become a monk with for no reasons at all. The reason to become a renunciate is to sit here and eat with me? That is not right. If that’s your motive, it’s not right. Not right. In this case, you will truly create a lot of difficulties, a lot of bad karma. You wouldn’t progress in your spiritual practice. If you want to become a monk, you have to be sincere.I trusted people very easily before. If anyone wanted to become a monk, I would immediately shave their head for them, just like the Korean nun. Just out of love, thinking that renunciation is a very good thing. I myself also love to be a nun, so of course, I welcomed them to join. But slowly, I realized that they were different. It seemed that they had not come for renunciation; they had different purposes. If you want to become a monk, you have to be truly sincere. Only when you are ready to sacrifice yourself for other people, should you become a monk. Otherwise, if you only want to be liberated from the cycle of birth and death, then you don’t need to become a monk. You can wear ordinary clothes and stay outside in the world, and still get liberated. Yes?(Master, one of them told me she had been following that Buddhist master for many years, and she longed to become a nun.) Because she’s been following the Buddhist nun who shaved her head, for many years? (Yes. She’s been following the Buddhist nun for many years.) Which Buddhist nun? (The Korean Buddhist nun.) Which one? The one behind? Has she been following her as a disciple or just following her around? Give her the microphone. Why did the nun shave her head? (As she wanted to practice harder, she wanted to be a nun…) Translate it. What does it mean by “following her?” Does it mean that she’s been following her without shaving her head, just living with her, like burning incense and reciting Buddha’s names, etc.? Or how did she follow her?(Master, she was a follower of the nun. Not as a disciple, but just a follower.) Who said that? (I am the Korean translator.) Yes, tell me. (She was a follower of the nun. She’s been following her for a long time.) You’re also my followers. How is she special then? (Nothing special. It’s just that she has been longing for renunciation since a long time ago. That’s why she had her head shaved recently.) Only recently? Why? (Before, she was a lay person.)That I know. Did her parents agree? Did her husband agree? (Let me ask her.) Yes. (Then, did your parents or your husband agree with that? Sister?) (I have no husband, no parents either.) (She has no parents nor husband.) How has she been following the nun? As a follower, just like you, right? Just comes and goes, right? (Yes.) (So, you’ve just been practicing like others; coming and going, right?) (Yes.) (Yes. She just followed her around.)Then, why does she want to become a nun only now, and not before? She has already learned with me, why does she still want to become a nun? (Why did you not become a nun earlier and finally decided to do that now?) (I had two children. They have all grown up and got married now, so I decided.) (She has two sons.) (She was married and has two sons. On April 1, 2012, she received initiation from Master.) April of which year? (Initiation on April 1st, 2012.) OK. So it’s been seven years already. (Yes.) Now she wants to become a nun. So, where is she going to leave the children? (Both her sons are married already. Her children have grown up.) (She told me that because her children have grown up, now she’s free. She’s been longing for renunciation.) What about her husband? Is she going to divorce him? (She has no husband now.) No? How come? (She doesn’t have a husband anymore.) Are they divorced?(Have you divorced?) (No. Twenty years ago, my husband passed away.)(Her husband passed away 20 years ago.) Passed away. OK. And her children have grown up. How old are they?(Grown up and married, that’s why she’s free.) What did she say? (What she means is, her husband died 20 years ago, and she raised the children. Both her sons are married already. That’s why she thinks it’s time now.) Oh. Is she Korean? (Yes.) And you advised her not to do it? (Yes. I told her… I explained the reasons to her and she accepted them. But then I thought it’s better that I don’t make the decision for her. I should report this to Master.)Why did she still ask you? Since she had her head shaved already, why did she still ask you?(Because I felt that she did not understand enough about monkhood.) She doesn’t understand. (No, she hasn’t been taught about precepts and hasn’t received them. So, I’m afraid that…)How old is she? (She seems to be…) Forty something? (No, she’s nearly 60.) (I’m 60 years old.) Nearly 60? (I got initiated ten years ago.) (She said she’s 60 years old.)Sixty years old and still wants to become a nun? What for? She’s 60 already, might as well just continue to live like that. It’s not that we think she’s too old, but I’m afraid that it’s difficult to change her personality at an old age. It might not be that easy for her to mingle and work with others. Her personality is already fixed. In Catholicism, they only accept people under the age of 30 to become priests. No more than 30 years old, male or female. They think it’s difficult to change or learn many things after 30. You can’t learn much if you’re old; not much time left. Time is too short for them to adapt to new circumstances. They would not be able to adapt to the group, nor to the rules and precepts of the group. Even if they want to devote themselves, it’d be difficult for them to adapt to the physical and lifestyle changes. That’s what I mean. Of course, she can still become a nun. But afterwards, she just continues to follow the Buddhist nun, right? Does the Buddhist nun have a temple for her? (Yes, the nun has a temple.) Will she live with her? You ask her.(Master, I did advise her, that since she’s been initiated by Master, true monkhood means liberation of the soul and renunciation of the mind. The outer form is not that important.) It’s not that important, indeed. (Yes, because if she dresses as a nun, but she doesn’t know about the precepts a nun has to keep, then she might easily violate the precepts, which would not be good for her.) Yes, this is what I’m worried about.It’s not that easy to become a monk or nun. You have to be clean, pure and dignified, and keep rules strictly, with no exception at all. You see, Ananda almost broke the precepts even after having followed the Buddha for such a long time. Of course, he was lured by someone else. But it’s still not a good excuse. I had around 500 monks and nuns with me before. Now there might be only 50 left, who are half renunciate, half lay people. To be a monk is not easy. People look at you and have expectations. Your every move is watched by others. If they criticize you, they would also cause bad karma.If she wants, she can stay with the Buddhist nun for a while, without shaving her head; she can be her attendant, taking care of her and helping to clean the temple. She doesn’t have to shave her head to stay with her. First, she can try to see if she can follow the rules and obey instructions from senior people. It’s not easy for someone of 60 to listen to others. I’m telling you. It’s my personal experience. I don’t listen to anybody now, I’ll tell you that. Whether I shave my head or not. I’m only ten years older than her, and I’m not listening to anybody, even my dogs.

Истинското значение на монашеството, част 7 от 9

If you’re a good spiritual practitioner, there are at least five angels protecting you. Also, Supreme Master TV is a kind of protective power. How would any invisible beings come to harass you? Take care of your body. Sometimes, you may have eaten some wrong food, which contains animal ingredients, or are allergic to it without knowing it, then you’ll feel itchy or something. If you’re a good spiritual practitioner, there are at least five angels protecting you. Also, Supreme Master TV is a kind of protective power. How would any invisible beings come to harass you? Take care of your body. Sometimes, you may have eaten some wrong food, which contains animal ingredients, or are allergic to it without knowing it, then you’ll feel itchy or something. I sometimes also feel very itchy. Sometimes, there are sores all over my body from scratching. I can’t say that it’s the invisible beings coming to hurt me. I know, sometimes, when I eat tomatoes, I have an allergic reaction. Our body becomes different as we age. Maybe we were not allergic to those when we were young. Or, when our karma comes, eating that may cause an allergy.However, though I know I’m allergic to tomatoes, I still love eating them. But later, I will have fun scratching. Scratch for a few days, then it’s gone. Just a little scratching, no problem. You have to pay the price. I know it, but I still eat it. Sometimes, I don’t eat it intentionally; they might have put tomato paste on the (vegan) pizza, or in the rice or (vegan) soup. Just for example. I feel itchy after eating it, so I just scratch. I don’t blame invisible beings for causing this. It’s the tomato (vegan) soup.Our body might become different as we get old, unlike earlier years. We’re stronger when we’re young. What’s that called? Our immunity was stronger. As we age, organs inside us will also become weaker, just like a car. If the car is well maintained, maybe it can be used for a longer time. If it’s not properly maintained, it’d become a lousy car. However, don’t always claim that it’s the invisible beings, whenever there’s any trouble, or say that someone is harming you with magical power.Why should he harm you? You’re not sure that he’s the culprit. Stop having delusions, or it could become real. It could, if you’re connected to him. You have your Master. Play Supreme Master TV and my lectures, then there’ll be no problem. Harm won’t come to us good people, unless it’s our own karma. Unless we are lousy in spiritual practice, and our level is too low. Then we’ll be taken advantage of by our own subconscious, our negative mind. I am old, I need to rest my back. Sitting up all the time, listening to you is really tiring. To hear you talk about invisible beings, I am also distressed. Any more distresses? Speak.(The last question, Master.) Speak. (Also about invisible beings.) Distressed again? The same person? (Another one.) Just read it. Read it. (Master, an invisible being transformed into Master’s appearance and told my girlfriend’s mother that she has reached the Fifth Level, and how long she would live, etc. He also told her to stop her daughter from going out with me. I once hated Master for this incident. Now I regret it very much, and I want to repent to Master. Will I go to hell for that? Master, please help me.)I’m not sure. Wait until you go there. Now you’re still here. Just repent and it’ll be fine. What did you hate me for? Even if it was the real Master instead of the false one, it’s good that She told your girlfriend to break up with you. You’re free. You should be grateful to me. Why should you hate me? Is that right, everyone? (Yes.) Perhaps that girl was not good for you. It doesn’t matter whether that Master is real or not, it’s better to have one less girlfriend, right?Many men deeply regret marrying their girlfriends. She is only your girlfriend; you’re not married yet. It’s still not too late. You can still be saved, right? In this world, you may have love today, but lose it tomorrow. Even if Master didn’t say anything, she might have left anyway. Or, after some time, you might have lost your passion for her. Just because you want to cling to that tiny bit of desire, you’re angry with me. That’s not right. It doesn’t matter if that Master is real or not. You failed even at an easy test. You’re just friends and not married yet. What if they are married and some Master tells his wife to divorce him, then he won’t forgive me. Having a girlfriend may not be good for you; losing a girlfriend may not be bad for you. Go find another girlfriend. There are so many girls in the world. You see she’s sitting here, so pretty. What are you missing? Losing one girlfriend is no big deal. You see they don’t have girlfriends.I also have no girlfriend and I still live on. I’m free to take care of myself alone. You don’t know the trouble of having a companion. No matter if it’s a man or a woman by my side, I feel annoyed sometimes. They sometimes do things differently, according to their ego. They don’t tell me why and don’t give me a chance to explain, why I tell them to do it that way. I’ll think they trust me and will do as I tell them, but it turns out that they do it differently. That ruins my schedule or creates unpleasant situations or obstructions. It’s not a big deal to have a girlfriend. Also, no need to be frustrated if you don’t have her; find another one. Maybe a better one. So, did she leave you? No? Is your girlfriend still with you? (Yes.) Then why did you hate me?(Because she told me that Master said so. At that time, I was still not clear…) It might not be “me.” (Yes, it’s because I hadn’t found out yet. Later, I understood after I found out the situation. It was not Master who said that.) The false one. (Right, the false one. Because I thought…) How did you know it was the false one? (I asked about the details. For instance, she said it was her mother’s experience. A being said this to her mother. And then that being would tell her something through her mother’s mouth.) Again, distressed by beings and then blame it on me. It’s always like that. (That’s how it went. And then, later…) Then you forgave me. Thank you. (I am sorry, Master. I am really sorry. I misunderstood You.) Lucky that you have only one girlfriend. If you had several more, I’d be dead. (Yes.) Please! It’s OK.(Another question is, I’m now troubled by this being. There seems to be more than one being with her mother. She is also our fellow initiate.) It has nothing to do with me, right? (I know. What I want to say is, because of this being, I now have difficulties in meditation. I’d like to know if Master can help in this matter.) I don’t know. (It’s not from me. It’s just that when I meditate… I think it’s from her mother. The consciousness of that being would come and bother me, which makes it very difficult for me to meditate. My girlfriend also experienced the same situation. Both of us have difficulties in our practice.)I can’t interfere with what people do outside. Sometimes, you go and bow to statues in the temples. Sometimes, you go and burn incense in graveyards. Sometimes, you ask for help from deities and ghosts. I cannot control what you do. You just mind your own business. I cannot even control what you do, not to mention other people. I cannot even control if you resent me or not. How would I interfere with other people’s business? Not even my disciples. OK. Tell her to play Master’s Buddhist chanting and see if it works. And ask her to watch Supreme Master TV. Ask both your girlfriend and her mother to watch, OK? (OK, thank You, Master.)I can’t interfere with other people’s business. I can’t even control my own disciples. Some of them just don’t listen to what I say. Some of them even made trouble, like talking nonsense outside and ruining my reputation, so that I could not come back to Taiwan (Formosa) for quite a few years, etc. I can’t control my own disciples, so how would I control others? I only teach you how to be a good person and practice spiritually. That’s all I can teach you. I can’t control your mind. But it’s also good like this, so you understand that I don’t control you. He is a free individual. He can choose to trust Master or resent Master. Do you see that? It shows that I don’t use any magic power to control you. I could do it, but I won’t and I don’t want to. I don’t want to control you. I want you to be free to choose for yourselves, so that you can grow.Even if you’re a university professor, you can’t help your child in kindergarten with his exams. He has to learn by himself. You can guide him, but you can’t take the exam for him. If he doesn’t learn according to what you teach him, he won’t pass the exam. And you also can’t take the exam for him. Isn’t it so? (Yes.) We humans have a great soul, inside which there is Buddha or God, and I don’t want to control this Buddha. You’ll have to find your own Buddha. I teach you how to find it. You need to grow up and take care of your own lives. You need to get enlightened and reach Buddhahood by yourselves. I can’t control you and I don’t want to.If a so-called enlightened master still controls others, then he’s not an enlightened master. What he does is use people’s faith and uses magic power to harm others. You can see that even Buddha did not control others. His cousin harmed Him, but He still let him do it. It’s not that He could not control him, but He didn’t want to. He respects you the same as respecting a Buddha, because you’re future Buddhas. There’s Buddha Nature inside you, which I can’t control. No more questions? Good.

Истинското значение на монашеството, част 6 от 9

Tell the elementary school teacher not to disturb you anymore. But you should also show your appreciation for him. Talk to him within to thank him. If he is still around, then talk to him in person. Offer something to him and thank him. Tell him that you’re learning from Master Ching Hai now. Ask him to help you practice smoothly instead of disturbing you. Thank you.Next. (I once followed a male Tantric master to practice. Now, this master is hindering me from meditating on the Light and Sound. I’ll have dreams whenever I meditate and wake up with bodily discomfort. I have headaches and bloodshot eyes. When I get up at midnight to meditate, I’ll study Master’s teachings first, and wash my face, but all are futile. Master, please enlighten me.)Tell that Tantric master that you are very grateful to him for imparting to you some teachings, but now you’re following me. Tell him it would be the best for him to follow me too. If he won’t, then to let you be free. Thank him, but now you have graduated. For instance, previously you were in elementary school. Now, you’ve graduated and are in high school. Tell the elementary school teacher not to disturb you anymore. But you should also show your appreciation for him. Talk to him within to thank him. If he is still around, then talk to him in person. Offer something to him and thank him. Tell him that you’re learning from Master Ching Hai now. Ask him to help you practice smoothly instead of disturbing you. Thank you. (Dear Master, since three years ago, a fellow initiate has been hurting me with black magic. Thankfully, I have Master’s blessing power and protection, I meditate for five hours or more everyday and recite the five Holy Names, so that I can practice smoothly, until today. However, my spiritual practice and daily life is still severely affected. Master, what should I do?) Why does he harm you with magic power? Any reason? Have you offended him? (He can do anything. He used black magic to send something to bite me. It was as if my whole body was bitten by ants.) I understand. (Also, there seems to be something creeping all over me. That always happens when I meditate.)Why does he do this? How have you offended him? (No, I don’t know him.) If you don’t know him, how do you know that he is using black magic? (In a chat group of fellow initiates on the Internet, he was selling some blood tonics. He was from Pingchang District of Shenyang City. At first, about 10 to 20 initiates bought this blood tonic from him. Later, they stopped buying because some of them didn’t feel good after taking it. At first, it was effective. Later, after they stopped buying from him, I noticed that he was stalking me. At first, he sent something to keep banging my head, which is getting more and more serious. Recently, my tendon is often twisted. I don’t know how he did it. He did something to my tendon anyway. In addition, he also pricked my acupunctural points. My whole body feels terrible. I can’t meditate anymore. He just wants to disturb me. Also, the windows at home will generate cracking noises whenever I meditate. Initiates meditating with me can also hear it. And lots of birds came into my room. Electrical appliances in my home broke down without reason, though they were of high quality and newly purchased. My computer often breaks down too. I often can’t even send messages using my cell phone, and sometimes my cell phone just freezes. It is the same with my computer. I’m quite sure he’s been using all kinds of evil magic.)Could you have eaten something allergenic? Go and have yourself checked by a doctor. Computers and TVs often break down. It happens to me too. Investigate the real cause. Don’t wrongly accuse bad people. Find out the real causes. Don’t be so superstitious, OK? (OK.) Find out the cause. Have you been playing Supreme Master TV? (Yes. Two computers take turns to play it around the clock.) Then he wouldn’t dare to disturb you. He couldn’t. You need to have a physical exam. Perhaps you have some allergy problems, OK? Also, computers and TVs sometimes break down because some parts are loose or broken. Or because they are too old. My TV set is new and yet it sometimes doesn’t work because some connections are loose. After I check it, then it’s OK. Later, it becomes loose again, because the electric cords are too hard sometimes. You put them this way, later they would become loose by themselves. Have them checked, OK? Get help from professionals. (Thank You, Master.)(Next question. Hallo, Master. In recent years, when I go to public places or to the hospital, I feel like I’m being disturbed by invisible beings. I recite the Five Holy Names and the Gift continuously. Still sometimes...) In the hospital? (Yes.) Do you work in the hospital? OK, speak. (I recite the Five Holy Names and the Gift. Still sometimes I can’t avoid being disturbed by them. Is there any other way to avoid being disturbed, Master?)What kind of disturbance? In what way? How do you know that they are disturbing you. (It’s like this; whenever I am in a public place, or when I have to work in a medical ward, or I am in contact with lots of medical staff or patients, I will have many symptoms, such as a cold sweat, not sure if I am hot or cold. Sometimes, I’d even have conditions such as diarrhea, vomiting, and bloating.) Is it very frequent? (Several times a year. The latest one was in mid-November 2019, but I was not in contact with patients this time.) Don’t always wrongly accuse the invisible beings, please. My God. Don’t randomly accuse people without any proof. Sometimes our body is tired. We sweat perhaps because the room is too hot, or because you had just been running or something. Or sometimes the body… For example, for females, before the period comes every month, you may have fever, or your stomach may feel uncomfortable, or you may feel pain, etc. Don’t blame everything on invisible beings. I don’t see any. Why should they harass you?(Sometimes, when I go to public places, I’d also feel very uncomfortable. When I notice it, I would leave the place and then I’d feel much better.) Feeling uncomfortable in crowded places. (Right.) I know, but what can you do? Stay in your house alone all the time? (I always recite the Five Holy Names. When it’s very serious, I’ll play Master’s Buddhist chanting on my cell phone in my pocket. This helps ease the situation a little, but not completely.) Play Supreme Master TV, the Buddhist chanting, and my lectures. (Yes, I play them often, even in my office.)OK, then it’s fine. Sometimes, our body changes, or it’s because of our own karma. (OK.) Sometimes, it’s your own karma. Don’t accuse others randomly without any proof. (Thank You, Master.) If you accuse him, he’ll come to sue you. Let me tell you. (Thank You, Master. I dare not do it again.) Yes, groundless accusations. In my place here, my own disciples, they didn’t work properly, yet, I couldn’t accuse them, let alone for something that you can’t see and have no proof. I had concrete evidence, and still I couldn’t complain; not to mention something you can’t see. It’s nonsense, blaming everything on invisible beings or someone else.Complain only when you have proof, OK? You can’t accuse others without solid proof. They are my disciples here, with very solid evidence, and still I couldn’t complain. Of course, I told them. However, I felt that it was the karma of sentient beings and the world. I also couldn’t blame them. But since they acted as the maya’s tool to such an extent, they definitely will incur karma, and should be dealt with according to the law of karma. I am not angry with them. As their Master, I have the obligation to teach them and tell them frankly. But in my heart, I don’t blame them. It’s just that it had to be handled according to the law of karma.I had to tell them frankly that it was wrong. Even if it was the maya’s trick, still, they were working for the maya. Working for the maya is against our positive power, against Buddha Power. If they’re against us, they belong to another group. Then they need to bear the consequences, when they are dealt with according to the law of karma. If you turn right, you will go to the right. If you turn left, you will go to the left. If you drive south, you will go to the south. If you drive north, you will go to the north. I have taught you properly. You should follow my teachings and act accordingly. Be careful with what you do. Always take good care of yourselves, and be careful.Besides, he was a professional plumber and electrician. There’s no excuse for me to help him. For example like that. We can only complain when we have proof. Without any proof, it’s just delusions. When we get old, our body will naturally become different. It will change. Or, when women are in menstruation, they may have symptoms such as fever, headache, bodily pain, vomiting, and so on. Or you are not aware that you’re pregnant, so you feel sick and then blame the invisible beings. Please! Spiritual practitioners shouldn’t be so superstitious. Only when I’m really sure, do I dare say it. Otherwise, I wouldn’t dare say, or falsely accuse others. Invisible beings are no different.

Истинското значение на монашеството, част 5 от 9

The Original Self is the Light. The Original Self is the inner Sound. That’s your Original Self. No face, no eyes. It’s just brightness and free-spirited (Inner Heavenly music.) You are just that. (Next question. Thank You Master for sending maya to the eternal hell. Master, when will the rest of the negative power on the Earth be completely erased?) When we all die, then it will be fine. Negative power is still in ourselves. It exists in humans and animals. It is locked in some before they are born. Both good and bad. So, take it easy. It has already decreased a lot. No additional power and pressure has been added on. For example, you are in a big lake, and you keep swimming. You have strength, of course, but you will get tired. If the water in the lake suddenly disappears, you won’t be excessively tired. You don’t have to swim and spend more energy in order to get out. Now the lake is dry. You can walk ashore freely, understand?(Second question. Does Earth then become the real Heaven?) I don’t know. When it comes, we will know. Why worry? I have already told you that I can’t tell fortunes. I don’t want to tell fortunes. You are already old, what are you afraid of? When your son grows up, he will tell you, if you are still alive.(Next question. I want to report an experience to Master. When the retreat started several days ago, Master came out to sit on the stage to give a lecture. I felt a bright light above my head and it made a blue opening. I want to ask Master if it means that my heavenly door is open?) Oh, it sounds like it. Did you go through it? OK, never mind. Having an experience is already great. Why bother asking questions, whether the heavenly door is open or not? It is open when you are initiated. This is one kind of experience. If you see a door, then go out to see what’s going on outside. Anything more? OK, read others.(Dear Master, in 2017, I meditated on a mountain in Qinghai province, China. The nine-month retreat was the happiest time of my life. Master continuously uplifts me. I had a special experience that I don’t quite understand. One night, I woke up at midnight, and I felt that I had become like air. So peaceful and tranquil. But everything in this world feels unrelated to me. I can’t even quite remember that there’s still “me.” I want to ask Master if this is the Original Self? Thank You, Master.)Is it? No, it’s just one kind of experience. Don’t grab on to it, OK? There are still many experiences that can’t be seen so soon. The Original Self is the Light. The Original Self is the inner Sound. That’s your Original Self. No face, no eyes. It’s just brightness and free-spirited (Inner Heavenly music.) You are just that. Next one.(Master, during Light meditation, I saw a small and bright light spot. But I saw other scenes at the same time. Should I focus on the light spot? Or should I do Light meditation normally, without focusing too much? Thank You, Master.) A bright, blue spot? How small? How small was it? (The little light spot was brighter, but tiny.) How tiny was it? (How big?) Like this? (It gradually zoomed out and became smaller. It’s big when it’s near.) (It became smaller when it was farther, and became bigger when it was closer.) Right, right! You focus on that, OK? At the center. (Thank You, Master.) Just focus on the center. For as long as you can. It will open up (Yes.) and then you can go through. There are higher realms beyond.(Last evening, I went to the Celestial Jewelry group to purchase Master’s latest jewelry design – the Elixir series bracelet. Without me asking, a sister came over to help me, so that I was able to make the purchase in the quickest way. I was very surprised, and as soon as I received the jewelry, that sister disappeared. Thank You, Master.)What are you laughing at? Why? (The manifestation body of Master helped her.) No. That sister really helped her. Good. You should thank her. (Because I had been thinking of buying that jewelry all the time, Master quickly sent this sister to me. She appeared very suddenly and then disappeared suddenly too.) I understand, OK. (Thank You, Master.) You are welcome. Have you got it? Oh! Beautiful.(I love the Celestial Jewelry designed by Master, and I always wear it at work. People around me are very happy. I feel this is all due to Master’s love and blessing power, which are spread out through us who are wearing it. I am extremely grateful to Master.) Some people see light emanating from people who are wearing the jewelry. (It’s really true. Many people feel “Wow!” because they are dazzled.) OK. (Thank You. There is another benefit in purchasing the Celestial Jewelry, which is to help us save money to do what we want to do the most. Thus, we won’t squander money. Thank You, Master.) You are welcome. The Celestial Jewelry is helpful somehow.(Dear Master, originally, my husband didn’t want me to come. Later, my son said, “Dad, please let mom go.” Master, my son has completely changed. He supported me to come to the retreat this time. I am grateful to Master’s blessing that has uplifted their souls. Thank You, Master.)You are welcome. Congratulations. Who told you to have a husband and son, and then be controlled by them. Even your son controls you. That’s what men do, always controlling the women near them. Strange! It’s always out of love that they come; too much love. Thank you.(On October 1st this year, I came to join the special event that Master held for the artist friends. After the event, I was dragging my luggage alone and was planning to take the bus, and then transfer to a train to go to the airport in Kaohsiung. Suddenly, a fellow initiate drove by and the initiate turned around, specifically for me, to give me a ride to the airport. Thank You, Master, for this arrangement. Also, when coming to this retreat, it was already eight in the evening when I arrived near the New Land, and I also got lost. Just at the time when I didn’t know what to do, a car drove by. I said hallo to him and told him that I was a disciple of Supreme Master Ching Hai. He then agreed to drive me to New Land, so that I could finish my arrival registration smoothly. Thank You, Master.)You are welcome. This is common. This is a common thing. When I get lost, I would also seek help from the neighbors, and they would show me the way home. They do it willingly and it is very typical. If I drive home alone, I’d definitely get lost, even in here.(I was being disturbed by invisible beings before the initiation. Thanks to Master’s blessing, the situation has been improving as I practice along. Yet, I also feel very bad when I see them suffering a lot. Master, please help liberate the invisible beings near me from the sea of suffering. Thank You, Master, for Your blessing.)They are your enemies or debtors. As you practice more, they will naturally be liberated. They may be your enemies, or relatives and friends. They are urging you to practice harder. Next one, please. Today, a lot of men are asking questions. That’s good. Usually, it seems you have no questions. Go on.(Master, sometimes I feel that a negative power is asking me to do something that I don’t want to do. Last year, a spiritual practitioner told me there’s a dark spirit like a bear on me. I met him when meditating on a mountain. Master, please enlighten me.)How do I enlighten you? He loves you and you should be happy. Just tell him to leave. If you don’t like him, just tell him: “Please! Let me practice spiritually.”(Master, can You please check whether he has left me or not?) I don’t see anything. How would they dare to come here to let me see them? If you still see him after you go home, that means he has not left. You tell him: “Let me be free. Master will help you. Stop harassing me. Otherwise, your karma will become worse.” Tell him in this way, OK? Do you see anyone near him? How would this type of invisible being dare to make trouble in our place here? When they can see that we have lots of strong women here, they wouldn’t even dare to look from afar, let alone come here to make trouble. If he comes here, we will take care of him.

Истинското значение на монашеството, част 4 от 9

00:29:53

Истинското значение на монашеството, част 4 от 9

When we come back to the world this time, it doesn’t matter what we do or whether we are Buddha or not. Within our scope of work, we respect our own lives. We do our best to respect the work we do, 100 percent. That is good enough. You don’t need to care what position you are in and what it is for. They’re all illusionary titles.For example, there are three initiates from Costa Rica. Master paid for their plane tickets, because I know they don’t have the money. They really wanted to see me. They have very good experiences, excellent experiences. They’re very good and very sincere. Every time I went to see them, they were exactly the same. But I am rarely able to go to those countries, because I’m busy here. Here is more convenient for you Asians. If I go to America, or to Central and South America, it won’t be convenient for you. It’s not easy to get a visa and not convenient to get around. Because we don’t speak their language, so sometimes we can get lost. Many cities of the countries in Central and South America have the same name.There’s one guy who wanted to go to San Jose. There is a San Jose in the United States, too. He wanted to go to San Jose in the USA. They sent him to San Jose in Costa Rica instead. It’s a real aviation story. I also had this problem myself. I wanted to go there, and they sent me over there, instead. Luckily, at the last second, they said, “Oh! No, no, sorry! So and so, come and sign up with us. It’s wrong, wrong! Hurry up and we’ll change Your ticket.” And then really everything had to be changed. The luggage was fine. I didn’t have much luggage. But some luggage was already checked-in. Luckily, I had the most important one with me. So, it was OK. I said, “You’d better take care of my luggage and give them back to me.” They did take good care of them.It was a real mistake! The plane was wrong, and the time was wrong. They made me run and got me exhausted. Finally, I couldn’t run any longer by myself. I didn’t know where to go at that time. I forgot. It doesn’t matter. It just really happened. I ran halfway and I couldn’t stand it. I couldn’t pull that luggage and run with it any longer. I saw a chocolate shop in the airport. I left my luggage there and I said, “Keep an eye on it! I have to go. I have to go.” She said, “No, No, No! Cannot, Cannot! Come! Come back, Come back!” “Come back, come back!” “No, no!” I didn’t want to listen. I just pretended I didn’t understand and ran away. Because I was going to be back there in a minute. If I pulled it back and forth, I’d pass out in a minute. I am small and weak.The weakest and the smallest, yet I have to do the biggest job. God is not fair. And there’s more and more work as I get older. What does that mean? Most people retire at 60. I’m 70 already, but I have more work than before. Hes is kidding. God must be kidding. They bully me. And I can’t do anything about it. My work matters. Hes has rules. I have to do it, and I must do it well. Besides, my heart can’t let go. I can’t let go of the sentient beings. I can’t let them go. I can’t give up on humans and animals. You said you are attached to something, I am even more attached.I’m attached to my job. I can’t let go. I can’t let go of their suffering. I can’t ignore it. I can’t say I don’t know. I can’t pretend to hear and know nothing. I can’t. I think of people’s suffering, while I’m sleeping and meditating. Sometimes, I shed tears when I eat half of my meal, and then I can’t eat anymore. For example like this. I can’t put it down, truly, I can’t. You say you are attached to your family members, your clan. I am attached to a bigger family, everybody. A very big family. I have a lot of family members. You only have a few, and you’re so attached already. Besides, my family is so big, isn’t it? I have the whole world, how can I put it down? And animals, too.You’ve only got a few kittens and puppies. When they get sick or pass away, you feel so much pain. I have animals of the whole world, clinging to my heart. I can’t let go. Even all creatures. I truly can’t let go. Sometimes, I would say to my dogs, “We have to sacrifice. Sometimes, I don’t see you because I’m too busy working. I’m not ignoring you. You carry on with your lives. We’ll see each other when I’m free, OK? Sometimes, when I can’t see you, I can’t see you. Not that I don’t love you. But we have to sacrifice for the multitude of animals and people.” They understood. They all understood very clearly. Last time, because I had to do a retreat. I meditated by myself for a few days. I do a retreat whenever I can find time, alone. The last time, I wanted to have a retreat for three days. The whole group of dogs came, and I said, “I’m going to do a retreat tomorrow. I need to be alone. I can’t see you guys. Please understand. Don’t be sad, and don’t think that I’ve abandoned you.” Oh! I made a mistake. They wanted to leave my place right away. They cried and made noise, and I had to get someone to take them away. I told them it was tomorrow morning. It was pretty late by then. But they didn’t stop until someone came and took them away. This is what happened.Sometimes, they are already here, asleep. Then I’ll tell them when I finish my work. They know that they are going soon. After an hour or two later, they need to leave anyway. So, they don’t make any noise. This time I told them too soon, too early. Oh! The whole group cried and made noise. Usually they are clamoring to come. That day, they were clamoring to leave. I said, “Are you really angry with me or you don’t love me? Why do you behave like this today?” He said, “To let You be free. To let You be free and prepare Yourself.” It’s like that. Don’t think that the small dogs don’t know anything. Anything else? I’m sorry. (Yes, there’s more.) OK.(Dear Master, I opened my eyes during meditation, and I saw Master’s portrait changing constantly.) This one? (It was changing to various images. Master, is this the so-called Master’s billions of transformation bodies?) Does it need to be asked? My God. It’s just a symbol. Billions of transformation bodies are not like that. That is the Master’s inner power manifesting in different places, with different looks to save different people. Because some people don’t know Master. Let’s say a person believes in Jesus only, but he has affinity with me and is sincere. He asks Jesus to help him in his home. If I go to him without looking like a monk and tell him, “I’ll save you”, he will freak out. Therefore, I’ll appear in Jesus’s image to help him. It’ll make him have more faith. If you have faith, you are saved. This is called the billions transformation bodies. The power from the headquarters of the Universe can manifest in different shapes for the benefit of different beings. But that’s a picture, maybe you had blurred vision. Actually, it just helps you to understand. It’s a symbol. It’s not merely a photo. When Master is here, it is like a real person, to reassure you that Master is here, to let you know, so you are happy. Master doesn’t have only one look, but many. Even a photo can change like that, just to make you understand. It’s an experience. Congratulations.(Next question. Master, I have three questions.) OK. (The first question is when I am at work, I use my brain all the time. Master, how can I get rid of the habit of using the brain excessively?) Does it mean that he continues to use his brain after work? (Yes.) I can’t help you. Recite the Five Holy Names. Recite them at work when you can. Recite whenever you can. Also, when you’re not working. We can’t help it. We need brains, too. Otherwise, the brain will go rusty. The brain is the brain. We should recite the Holy Names. Recite when you meditate. I know it’s hard to change sometimes. That’s why we need to practice daily. Otherwise, just receiving initiation is good enough. It’s hard to change. Take it easy. It doesn’t matter. You still have faith and that is good. The second question.(The second question. Master, in Your earlier discourses, You mentioned that it’s always the same few Buddhas delivering the sentient beings, such as Maitreya and Quan Yin Bodhisattva. It’s always these Buddhas. May I ask Master if these Buddhas were all Your reincarnations?) No, not all of Them were “me.” Give other beings a chance, OK? Some were, some were not. Like Shakyamuni Buddha, He was not my reincarnation. Some others, yes. I don’t want to say it, in case people think that I’m bragging. But not all the Buddhas nor the Quan Yin Bodhisattvas were me. I don’t necessarily have to be the Buddhas. I don’t necessarily have to shave and wear monk’s robe. I also tried this time, but I was still called to wear these worldly clothes again. It doesn’t matter. I’m still a monk. I became a monk to save people and sentient beings, not to be worshipped or believed by people. So, whatever I wear is OK. All right.(The third question. Does every soul, born in this universe have a special destiny? For example, is the person destined to become an enlightened master? Or become a god? Or even the king of a heaven? Thank You, Master.) Not everyone is destined to be a Master, of course. Otherwise, it’s too competitive. “This is mine. I am the Master. Come over here. No, No. Go over there.” It’s not like that. Whatever we are is fine. For example, Ananda. He had been a Buddha for a long time. But he was reincarnated as Shakyamuni Buddha’s attendant. He had reincarnated as Shakyamuni Buddha’s relatives, friends, attendants, etc. When we come back to the world this time, it doesn’t matter what we do or whether we are Buddha or not. Within our scope of work, we respect our own lives. We do our best to respect the work we do, 100 percent. That is good enough. You don’t need to care what position you are in and what it is for. They’re all illusionary titles.Even Buddha doesn’t care whether people call Him Buddha or not. Just because we respect Him, we call Him that. When Shakyamuni Buddha reincarnated, He didn’t reincarnate to be Buddha every life. He had become Buddha millions of billions of eons ago. He sometimes still reincarnated to be a king; sometimes to be an ordinary cowboy; sometimes a golden deer. Or He came back to become different beings in different positions. Buddhas don’t mind what They are. They come back to help beings. OK, anything else? Thank you. Are you satisfied? Understand? No more questions? (I just hope that my merits gained in this retreat can help me obtain the method to communicate with my inner Master anytime.) Let’s talk about it later. (OK, I will continue to practice hard.) Thank you. Communication is always there. It’s just that you don’t… I can get to you but you don’t talk.(Next question. Master, my son has been initiated by Master and practiced hard. He’s been working in a temple, and he wants to become a monk. Master, will that affect his practice?) In a temple? (Yes.) Be a monk. No, if he wants to, then let him. He wants to be a monk, then let him be a monk. Just tell him to continue practicing the Quan Yin Method. Being a monk in a temple is also a type of work. He sweeps the floor, cooks, or cleans the Buddha statue. It is the same as working. All of us have a different job anyway, and we continue to practice the Quan Yin Method. For example, he works as a taxi driver, and he still practices the Quan Yin Method. He becomes a monk at a temple and still practices the Quan Yin Method, then it’s fine. In a temple, he can have vegan food easily, without being contaminated. It’s great. You don’t want him to be a monk because you want children or grandchildren, right? A worldly mother’s mind. Not necessary. (I am very supportive.) Good, then OK. (I am just afraid it will affect his practice.) It will not affect his practice. (OK, thank You Master.) He likes to be a monk, then let him be. (OK, thank You Master.) Let him do what he likes, just don’t let him do bad things. Being a monk won’t be a bad thing. I also want to; I like to be a nun. I want to sweep temples, and eat every day, without so many responsibilities. My mission is different. Thank you. (OK, thank You Master.) You are welcome.
