Many, like they say they are Christian, they’re Buddhist, they don’t need to do anything. They don’t need to follow any Master, because they have Jesus and they worship Buddha and they think that’s enough. No, not really, because your mind will trick you, will make you wander around all over. You cannot really concentrate on the Buddha alone.
Once you go inside the house and stay there, you’ll be safe. (Yes, Master.) So, you never know if next lifetime, you will have the same opportunity to enjoy good karma or is it your bad karma period coming to you. (Right.) (Yes, Master.) Yeah, like that. So, the best is, get out of this world as soon as you can, quickly, quickly. And trust your Master to take you out. (Yes, Master.)
The Master, the real Master, will not lie to you, of course. For what reason would I lie to you? I would be better off wandering around the world or staying with my good husband or enjoying my life. Why would I have to work so hard? If you live next to me, you would know how hard I work and you would not believe it, because I’m all alone and I do so many things. Everything is just to connect with the world, to wake them up. Even photographs. You understand that? (Yes, Master.) Remind them of beautiful nature, to appreciate it, to connect themselves with something good and pleasant and nice and higher than just killing or eating every day other carcasses until you’re full and get yourself sick and all that. You see what I’m saying? (Yes, Master.) You never know what will wake them up. It’s a different affinity.
I don’t really enjoy this kind of life. (Yes, Master.) Not really. I do it for everybody’s sake. I’d rather… I really miss it sometimes so much, a simple life, like in the Himalayas. (Yes, Master.) Very simple life. Even though I had very little money, but I was very happy and carefree. And now, sometimes I cannot sleep well. Sometimes I cannot meditate well. And every day something happens to me, my physical and mental, every day, no fail. But I cannot just leave the humans and the animals in suffering, the way I can see it. Before, I did not see that much. I saw sometimes on TV, the war people suffer, and I saw it in Âu Lạc (Vietnam), but not as deep as now. (Yes, Master.)
The more enlightened, the deeper you can feel for other people’s suffering, and it just pains you. And you cannot just… Just like if you are a doctor, and you see a person wounded and you could treat him, you would not just turn your face somewhere else and go away. (Yes, Master.) Even if it’s your off-duty time, you cannot not do it. You cannot not address that person and make him feel well, and then try to bring him to a better place where he’s safe and treated. It is like that. It became like a duty; it becomes like your goal of life. You cannot do anything else. You cannot not want to do what you’re doing. Then it’s good.
Any questions concerning this? Any more questions, my love? So, you still want to go back home and be a normal Christian, (No, Master.) and have a family and all that? Good luck! I think you will be not so happy as you imagined. Sorry if there was something that triggered that, but don’t, (No, Master.) please. Life is so short.
(I was just wondering because it seems many people, they know the Ten Commandments,) Yes. (and outwardly they show or they try to keep them but inwardly maybe not so dedicated) Yeah, it’s true. They cannot. (and sincere. And so, I was wondering if they are losing a lot because of that, or if they really do sincerely keep them inside as well as out, there’s some kind of spiritual charge that really keeps them) Understand. (progressing spiritually life by life.)
They go nowhere, baby. They just go back. (Yes, Master.) If they are lucky and good, if their bad karma is not pounding them next life, then they’ll become a human again, (Yes, Master.) having a comfortable life, almost like the last life. But if the bad karma period comes… Just like the river, some parts of the river are deep and dangerous and with whirlpool water. And some river areas are flat, are peaceful, and the water runs slowly, not dangerous. A human’s karma and life is like that – sometimes up, sometimes down. Even the Buddha became a gecko, (Yes.) due to something that He had done in the last life or other life. It might not catch up with you the next life or this life, but it will catch up next life or the life after. You understand what I’m saying? (Yes, Master.)
To recycle yourself in this shadow world is a very, very dangerous decision and action. You better just get out! (Yes.) The house is burning. (Yes, Master.) Now you see the pandemic, but it’s not the worst. That’s not the worst. It could be worse. (Wow.) And this world, sooner or later, will be destroyed too. In the Three Worlds, no world is safe. You’ll be recycled again, again, and again, forever. Sometimes you go to hell, sometimes you go to lower Heavens. Sometimes you become human, sometimes you become a gecko, even. Maybe you’d like to try a gecko life? (No, Master.) Fun? My God. But it’s good that you ask. Because many people maybe ask that question.
Many, like they say they are Christian, they’re Buddhist, they don’t need to do anything. They don’t need to follow any Master, because they have Jesus and they worship Buddha and they think that’s enough. No, not really, because your mind will trick you, will make you wander around all over. You cannot really concentrate on the Buddha alone. The Buddha in the Amitabha Sutra, He explained that if you recite the name of the Amitabha Buddha sincerely, one-pointedly…! How often can you be one-pointed? One-pointedly, and have to remember all the details of the Buddha’s Land, the Amitabha Buddha’s Land, that Shakyamuni Buddha has described. Remember all that, and remember Buddha, don’t think of anything else. Then you will be born in His Land. The same with the Christian people. They think they go to the church singing, and then go next door drinking some alcohol and coffee or whatever afterward, and go home and eating the meat that is killed for them already on the table and… They’re not going anywhere, sweetheart. Truly, I am very sorry. I have to tell you the truth. It’s like that.
Because this world, they distract you. The world distracts you. You understand? (Yes, Master.) You can’t just remember all the time to be good and virtuous. And just to eat meat is already a great sin. It says so in the Bible. (Yes.) (Yes, Master.) “Meat for the belly, belly for the meat, and God shall destroy both meat and them.” (Yes, Master.) “Be not among meat eaters and wine drinkers.” God says that in the Bible, black and white. No matter how bad they interpret, or how much they cut, these things are still in there, (Yes, Master.) since centuries. (Yes.) And nobody listens! Nobody. Even some people who know the Bible by heart also don’t listen. They continue to eat meat, drink wine. (Yes, Master.) So, it’s not just in front of the blind, it’s talking to the deaf as well. They read the Bible every day, they go to the church and all that, but they are blind, they don’t see these things. (Yes, Master.) That’s why the Jewish scholar, what’s his name? You remember? (Asa Keisar, Master.) Asa Keisar? (Yes, Master.) He’s a brilliant Jewish scholar and just like a priest himself, a rabbi. He said “In Front of the Blind.” It’s really like that. What’s the use of having the eyes but don’t recognize the most important thing in life? “Seeing you see, but you do not perceive. Hearing you hear, but you do not understand.” It’s in the Bible too. (Yes.)
Any more questions, my love? Any questions? I wasn’t making fun of you. I just make it light because you all sit there so serious, I don’t dare to even laugh. Ha ha! I’m glad you don’t want to go back and be a normal Christian. A normal Christian, you have to pay a tax to the church as well. (Yes.) My ex-husband told me. I didn’t know. Other people? Other IQ?
(Thank You for saving us, Master.) You are welcome. And thank you for letting me. Really! Because if you don’t let me, I’m also helpless. Like a doctor, if a patient doesn’t let him, doesn’t sign the agreement to let him operate, then the doctor also is not allowed to do it. (Yes, Master.) So you, you, you are saving yourself. You know that? And I congratulate you. I thank you also. That makes me happy. (With Master’s grace.) (Thank You, Master.)
It makes me happy that you are so wise. And it makes me more happy because you stay there and work for Supreme Master Television. (We love it, Master.) That helps a lot, a lot of people. You know that? Countless people, visible and invisible.
You don’t know, the astral beings, they listen to your TV every day. (Wow!) The angels and the… Yeah, really! The Heavenly beings, they are listening, they’re watching, because they are also not liberated. (Wow.) They wish they could be humans and to work like you do or to be initiated, then it’s the surer way to be liberated forever. Because they understand more than the humans, they appreciate more the human’s life. Of course, the Master is also preaching to them. But they have to go also according to their karmic pattern. And if they want to be liberated, they come down to be humans, then seek a Master and then go the same road to go up. (Yes, Master.)
So, many Heavenly gods, before, when the Buddha was alive, they came down and listened to the Buddha. They praised the Buddha and they envied many human beings who were the followers of the Buddha. But because they listened to the Buddha, they can come back as a human and don’t have to be born at a lower level, so they have an opportunity to see another Master and then they can get liberated. That’s why all the Heavens’ beings come down and listen to many of the Masters’ teachings when They’re preaching or when They’re talking.
Just like now, if you see, you can see around you, or on top of you, and the whole sky is full of other beings who are listening. (Wow!) Same when the Buddha was alive. Many invisible beings, even astral beings, the king of the astral world, the kings of other worlds, they all came to listen to the Buddha preaching, and some of His disciples saw them. That’s why we have many stories saying that, because they recorded it. The people who saw it recorded it. Ananda recorded it from other people who told him, (Yes, Master.) or who told in front of the assembly. Just like sometimes when we have a retreat or we have group meditation, some of your brothers and sisters told their experiences. (Yes, Master.) They said they saw even dragons and other Bodhisattvas or Heavenly beings present when your Master was talking. Remember that? (Yes, Master.) And nowadays, we have video. So, Ananda doesn’t have to be so diligent. If he reincarnated again, there is no work for him to do.
