In every country, if only ten good, virtuous persons, like practitioners like you, only ten is enough to save the whole country. Do you understand? (Yes.) So, it doesn’t matter. Ten is enough for me. A hundred was a lot already. Even if they don’t practice, the Master’s seed inside will grow and grow. (Yes, Master.) And at least when they do something wrong, they’ll think, “Oh, no, this is wrong.” Even though they don’t meditate, but they know: don’t kill, don’t steal, don’t tell lies, don’t... They know all that.
(I expect with Supreme Master TV now, I expect something will happen.) You see, two people are still better than nothing. But the people that have been to my lectures, they also come home and have something inside their heart. And it slowly will come out, maybe later, in this life. And the people who are initiated, sometimes they go out, but sometimes they come back. Or they stay at home and meditate and look at the tapes or look at (Supreme Master) TV. They don’t go to group meditation. Maybe they don’t want to contact, but they still do meditation. It is said that in any country, if there are ten virtuous people, like you are, ten only, then that country will never be destroyed. Do you understand? So this is enough, ten people! I’m sure, of one hundred people initiated, there must be ten people meditating, including you two. At least ten, always ten percent. There’s never a 100% who continue. Ten percent continue, maybe at home. You are the more obvious, but they may be far away. They don’t come, but they meditate. If you can, you try to contact them and talk to them. Do you have their numbers? (Yes, I have their numbers.) OK, invite them. (I think I’ll write a letter today to them.) Yeah, OK. (I thought about this. Write a letter now, maybe they think...) Just say come and have tea, come to have tea with you. (I thought about this.) And have vegan paella together, and then talk, talk, and then consolidate each other and help each other. Write them an e-mail or something, or a letter.

They know all that. At least they keep it, and be a good person. And maybe they are still vegan, and practice a little. It’s very good for your country.
Your president (Prime Minister) has become the EU president – Portugal! (Yes, Durão Barroso.) He’s a very good guy, a very good man, very just, and a very good man. You should be proud to be Portuguese. He’s a good man. (Good, Master.) See, and a lot of good things for your country. No need to say many people (are needed). In every country, just ten people are enough, so we can save the world. Each country saves – this country saves here, another country there… That’s why I go around. Of course, I know not everybody stays. But, whatever, that’s good enough. Ten percent is good enough. And slowly, more. And now we have (Supreme Master) Television, more people look, maybe more people. (Thank You, Master.) You keep faith! You keep faith! When I first went to Taiwan (Formosa), I was only one person. I had two disciples or three disciples. And look now, we have a lot. (Yes,) Time. Time. (but You are bigger level, Master.) Time!
Maybe you make like a video seminar in a small coffee shop, and everybody will come and look. If you like. No, it’s difficult, difficult. (I don’t know if... One of my doubts is I don’t know if I have good experiences and if I can talk to others.) No, don’t tell them. Just say when you meditate, you’re more calm, your life is better and you have more compassion. (Thank You.)
Any more questions? (I love You.) I love you, too. (I love beyond anything else in this world, what You try to do, Your doing is working. I love…) Thank you for being with me. (This world needs this work.) They need you, too. See, we work together. You work maybe on a smaller scale, I work on a bigger scale. But small, small, small – then becomes big. We’re together. You do also a good job. I’m very happy. Thanks for staying. Thanks for staying with me, also working with me. (Thank You, Master.) You’re welcome. Thank you. Thanks for your love, your faith, everything. We do together, alright? Slowly, but OK. No rush, no rush. (I love You.) OK. See you next time.
It doesn’t look like you. (No, because I had a beard.) You were more serious. (With a beard.) You look better like this. (Now I am without a beard.) Yeah, without a beard looks more handsome. Yeah, really. (My mother said this too.) The same? (The same.) Yeah, it’s true. Here, you looked so serious. (I was an officer in the army.) That was why. Now you look more happy and relaxed. (Yes. And I left my time) Quit, quit. (in the army, and I’m more free.) Yeah, you look better. (I came back to my) Normal life. (normal life.) Yeah, yeah. It’s better. (During the time when I was in the army life, I was very, very stiff focused.) Yes, yes, yes. (It was an experience.) You look at you then, and look at now. A completely different person. You’re very happy.
(But when I saw You the first time, I was not afraid, just more careful.) Skeptical, no? (Skeptical.) Doubting. Who is this woman? (Who is this?) Maybe good, maybe not. (Sells to me nothing. But when I heard Your voice, I…) You believed. Yeah. “We can try.” (It’s the only conference I went to.) Yeah? When? (No other conferences.) Never go anywhere. (No, never.) OK. (I searched for spiritual belief in books.) There are many, many books. (I searched, Bible search.) OK. And you found it. You OK now? (But I don’t go to any conferences but yours.) I’m glad you came. (For example, when I go to… I want to work more,) To stay. (blessed time for me.) Yeah.
(But I am from Alcobaça. It’s north of Lisbon. It’s 100 kilometers [~54 miles] north.) That’s far. (And because of my job, I needed to go to Lisbon. And when I was there, waiting for me was a sample booklet of You in my office.) Oh, really? And then you just went? (I received the sample booklet in December. But You were in Lisbon in May, on 7th of May. I didn’t read the sample booklet in December. But one week before, I saw the sample booklet in my office, and I said, “Oh, ‘Immediate Illumination.’ What is this?” And I read it that night and read all the information,) Yes. (about freedom; whoever believes in You, will be free.) Yes. (I asked my intuition. I asked for You and forgot about it.) Yes. Forgot. (I didn’t think and didn’t expect to) To see me. Yes. (see You. But one week later, I saw in the newspapers: Master Ching Hai is in Lisbon.) Impossible. So, you went. I’m glad you did. We have affinity. We can work together for the better of the world.
(Can I ask a question, Master?) Sure, any question. (In the past life, I was with You?) Sure you were. You forgot. Two times! (Two times? I didn’t make You suffer?) No, no, no! (No?) You had been good, yes! You had been a good disciple, just not very high. Now you’ve come back, you want to go higher. So, it’s OK. This time you’ll make it. (Thank You, Master.) Also because you missed me, you wanted to come back, so we can work together in this life, the last time. I’m glad to see you again. Long time. Ciao. Are you going home now? (Yes, I’m going. I’ll take some food and then go.) OK. Have a good trip. I’ll see you next time. (See You, Master.) Ciao. How do you say goodbye in Portuguese? (Adeus!) Adeus! (Adeus means “to God.”) To God, adeus! It’s just like Spanish. (Yes.) Adeus!
