Master’s Meticulous Care and Advice, Part 2 of 3, Sep. 26, 2015

That’s why you think about things of Qianlong Dynasty even come back to you. If you remember it and let it go, do your stuff, do your concentration and the mind keeps thinking or doing whatever it does. Don’t worry about. But just concentrate on your meditation technique. We can do many jobs at the same time. Why not? The mind does its thing, the brain does its thing, the soul does its thing. We can. Yes, we can. And sometimes not always you see vision or Light. Oh, thank God for that!

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Thinking Skandhas, Part 4 of 8, Dec. 28, 2018

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Thinking Skandhas, Part 4 of 8, Dec. 28, 2018

If the Buddha were to use that, then He’d have subdued all, the whole world already, no need for anybody else to come behind Him. You see, that’s the difference between a Buddha and a demon. The demon, he uses power just to control people. The Buddha, He had to use reason. If He used His power at all, it was because that person needed it, maybe needed to heal at that time, needed to be awakened from some trouble, like Ananda for example, and to use it to help His disciples in time of need. Otherwise, if the Buddha had used all His power just to bless this person, control that person, then the whole India at that time would’ve knelt at His feet already.

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Three, Part 2 of 6 April 6, 2019

Now, we have the next one, “Universal Worthy Bodhisattva,” “‘I have been a Dharma prince with as many Thus Come Ones as there are sands in the Ganges.’ ‘The Thus Come Ones, of the ten directions tell Their disciples who have the roots of a Bodhisattva to cultivate the Universal Worthy conduct, which is named after me.’ ‘World Honored One, I use my mind to listen and distinguish the knowledge and views of living beings. In other regions, as many Realms away, as there are sands in the Ganges, if there is any living being who discovers the conduct of Universal Worthy, I immediately mount my six-tusked elephant and create hundreds of thousands of reduplicated bodies which go to those places. Although their obstacles may be so heavy that they do not see me, I secretly rub their crowns, protect and comfort them, and help them be successful.’” Successful in cultivating the Universal Worthy conduct.

Buddhist Stories: The Story of Khuda, Part 1 of 7, Aug. 24, 2015

And this person, Devadatta, was extremely arrogant also. He wanted everybody to respect him as much as the Buddha. He wanted to be equal with the Buddha, even though he didn't have spiritual merit as the Buddha. If a person is jealous and arrogant like this how can he be Buddha anyway, right? Already. Not to talk about inside, the outside is bad already. And he wanted to kill another person, a Buddha. No matter what, even if it's not the Buddha you can't just kill a person, right? Right. Violent. It's bad.

Master’s Meticulous Care and Advice, Part 3 of 3, Sep. 26, 2015

Every time you feel like it’s not the way you want, go pray. Go in a corner somewhere. Wash your face. Cry if you want. Scream if you want in the bathroom or something. And then wash your face and then pray and then think about that. Or leave it there, do what you have to do at hand first, prioritize and think about that later and discuss later. Always make up before you sleep together, better before you go to sleep. Or you should have his room, her room and come together whenever necessary, wherever you like. So afford some space. Some people need that. Some people don’t.

The Surangama Sutra: The Demonic States of the Feeling Skandhas (Continued) - Questions and Answers, Part 6 of 7, Dec. 27, 2018

I mean, not just this lousy world, like the Maya made, was all you got. Zillion times more glorious, and comfortable and you lack nothing, and you desire nothing; you just feel happy. And then from there, you can even bless the world because you’re more powerful. Not just we enjoy, but we can bless the world. And we can come back here if we want. But full of equipment inside, to protect yourself, not to fall again, and to help whoever you think you owe a debt last life, or who helped you sincerely.

Искреността и страстта на хората от Иран в духовната практика, част 2 от 4 May 12, 2019

Сигурна съм, че и хората от другите страни имат вяра и също са искрени, но просто чувствам повече пламенност от иранците, това е всичко. Нямам предвид, че другите хора нямат вяра. Но просто усещам нещо от иранците, толкова страстни, толкова силни.

Бъдете щастливи с това, което е Божията Воля

You came just for Gift. I don’t always have Gift for you. Why you ask so many things from me? Just initiation is good enough already. I appreciate your willingness to work for Supreme Master Television and for the world. That is very good. Your intention is good enough already. God knows you want to work, but if God doesn’t want you to work, then OK. I feel good if I see you. If I don’t see you, I feel different good. So, we accept everything in life. No need to blame anybody for anything.

Поглед към Новото Духовно Измерение на Tim Qo Tu - част 3 от 4

The whole drama is just about one and a half minutes, but it was unnerving; it’s kind of unnerving. And I just stayed on the chair, where I work, waiting for it to come, to face it, to fight it squarely. But it moves away as fast as it comes, thanks to some interference, by pressure from the protecting Ihôs Kư Godses, then I felt free again. (Master, it’s also exciting to see more and more public access TV outlets on Supreme Master Television.) Yeah. That’s another joyful news that I enjoy very much, and I have to thank all your brothers and sisters out there, who try very hard to expand our horizons, expand our television network. And I’m so thankful to God for such disciples like they are. I’m very grateful to them. I’m sure these people will go to the newly created land, when they go. (Wow.) They’re worthy, yeah. And so are you, so are you. (Thank You, Master.) You work for the whole world. You help me to work for the whole world and I will not let you down. OK? (Thank You, Master.) God will reward you, richly. (Thank You. Thank You, Master.) Through your Master, perhaps. Through Tim Qo Tu. OK. Any other questions or opinions? (Master, You were talking about the land that Amitabha Buddha created. So, the people who didn’t get to see Master but sincerely pray and recite “Amitabha Buddha,” they can go to the land between the Fourth and the Fifth?) Yes, that’s according to Shakyamuni Buddha, yes. (OK.) But they have to be really sincere and recite His name non-interruptedly. Like they have nothing else in their mind except that name, all day, all night, and really sincerely, and they have to even imagine what kind of land that is. (Right, OK.) The Shakyamuni Buddha described that land with lotus and crystal pavement, crystal houses, and gold pavement, and all the trees and the flowers are made with jewels. The land is brightened with light and jewelry. All the trees even singing names of the dharma, of the teachings and the Buddhas, and all that. They have to always have that in mind. They have to imagine all that, without being disturbed or distracted. Quan Yin Method is easier. (Yes. Thank You, Master.) All you do is just do what I told you, that’s it. (Yes, Master.) No need to imagine anything. (Yes, Master.) OK. (It’s so easy, Master. Thank You, Master.) You are welcome. Any other thing, any other questions? (Master, when Masters or Saints descend as wise rulers or even like military strategists, how are They able to absorb or pay the karma of, I guess, inevitably participating in conflicts and wars?) OK, OK. These are the forces of Maya anyway, the opposite ones. So that, the Master can absorb quickly, because it’s a Master, it’s not a normal ruler, OK? (Right, yes, Master.) But of course, there is some price to pay, it’s not like scot-free. (Yes, Master.) But because such a ruler is the Master, they can do it. But mostly, in the conflicts, these so-called Masters, They will try their best to solve the conflicts with friendship, (Yes, Master.) like King Arthur used to do. And like King Genghis Khan, he went everywhere, and people just surrendered. According to what I read, very rarely was there any resistance that resulted in bloodshed. That’s why he went from one country to another so fast. (Yes, Master.) First, he sent people to talk diplomatically, and then he is helping them, instead of possessing their country. And then they let their own people govern themselves also. Not like go and invade the country and take the whole country and rule it yourself. He just kind of formed an alliance, and the military action was only when it was really, truly unavoidable with very little bloodshed, according to what I read. (Yes, Master.) (Wonderful.) Also, you should understand that the Maya is always trying to oppose a Master in any way. So, they even manifest themselves into kind of soldiers to go and fight with the king’s soldiers, but they are not real. (Wow.) Because they have the power to manifest; that’s easy for them. It’s all phantoms, you understand? (Yes, Master.) So, even if the king had to kill these opposing armies, they were not real; no karma. Remember, just like when I first announced to you that I was going to make a retreat for three months? (Yes, Master.) And then the Maya made a little bird trumpet agonizingly like an elephant? (Oh, yes.) Like an elephant in pain. (Yes.) And then I had to call all of you. Even though I didn’t want to contact any of you at that time, I had to call all of you to come up and search for any injured big animal, remember? (Yes, Master, we remember.) Yeah, that’s what that was. And then they sent people to my room, but they were not allowed to come in physically, so they came in the astral body and talked very loud, disturbing my meditation, remember? (Yes, Master.) All right. And they even manifested a snake and all that to scare me not to go back to my house etc. etc. (Yes, Master.) OK, all right. So similarly, they can manifest into big armies and all that, but these were all phantoms. (Understand.) All right. (Master, I remember a while ago in SMC retreat, Master saying something like, Master’s level was so high that Maya could not touch Master, just through the disciples or the assistants around You that caused trouble for Master. But it seems now, that Maya is able to disturb Master’s retreat and meditation, making it difficult for Master, or was it always like this, or is it recent?) Recent, more recent. (If so, what happened now that Maya is able to disturb Master’s retreat?) Yeah, I am also taken by surprise, because the more disciples I have, sometimes, they have different, heavy karma. Recently, we’ve had a lot, more and more initiates. (Yes, Master.) More than ever before. Before, there were never big numbers like 400, 700, something like that, 800, and now it’s not an unusual thing, OK? (I see, Master.) And most of the so-called disciples, they came from so-called lower consciousness areas of the world, and they still contacted or worshipped like local gods or some ghosts or some demons, in their local environments, to heal sickness or to ask for favors, stuff like that. So, when they come, they are full of garbage, and even after they got initiation, if they don’t meditate diligently, they just come in and just want some favor, or health or benefit or whatever, then these kinds of demons and their ex-friend demons or local ghosts or goblins still can trouble them. And then the Master has a very hard time to always take care of all this, because these are some low consciousness areas of the world. Their consciousness is already low and they’re burdened with all these kinds of invisible goblins or ghost energy, and it’s harder to take care fast, and then, the Master sometimes has to bear these consequences. (Yes, Master.) So, the Maya will use this kind of weakness time to come and trouble the Master, like a leaking roof. That is also related to another question. You asked why I cannot tell you anything new about the new realms that I have accessed and passed through. (Yes, Master.) It is because I cannot just tell you everything. Many things I wanted to tell you but, number one, it is not necessary for you to know. Number two, it is… the Maya hears it and then it will make trouble. (Yes, Master, understand.) Even just recently, some months ago, during these few months, I even just disclosed a little bit about peace related process details, and the Maya said, that will cost me 10% of my own peace from now. From that, because of that, so one time, and then just recently even, because that cost something, you see? So, they can disturb my peace. It’s lucky that they won’t disturb world peace and that I don’t care. OK? As long as the world peace is not disturbed or lessened, then I don’t care. Because I revealed some of the info to you, and of course then the world also knows how world peace comes about. Even if I did not plan in advance to reveal some of that, just some very small part, not even directly, or not even big, not the whole part, and it still cost me 10% of my own peace. (Wow.) That is one of the reasons why the Maya can also disturb me, apart from having a large number of disciples come at the same time, at one time. (Yes, understand, Master.) They can disturb me directly even, no need to go through any assistants or disciples, that day. They even sent directly to me, the disturbance, through an entity called… he even has a name, he has a title, called “peace frightener.” (Wow.) Means frightening you, scaring you. So, his name, his title is called “peace frightener.” Even has a title, my God. And that entity manifests his power that rattles the lock chain of my door, as if somebody was trying to break the chain and messing with the chain, trying to break in. And he was roaring outside my door like lions, like the sound of many lions. It was incomprehensible what he was saying, just a roaring sound. (Wow. Scary.) Like… like that, OK? (Yes, Master.) But bigger, bigger, stronger, like a loud speaker. And then it cannot get in the house, so it sent some kind of flow of oppressive energy, dark and oppressive energy through my door, and to kind of try to pin me down physically. You would feel that, like physical, like somebody pinning you down. The whole drama is just about one and a half minutes, but it was unnerving; it’s kind of unnerving. And I just stayed on the chair, where I work, waiting for it to come, to face it, to fight it squarely. But it moves away as fast as it comes, thanks to some interference, by pressure from the protecting Ihôs Kư Godses, then I felt free again. (That is very scary.) I am not afraid about that, but I just also need to feel well, in order to do my work. (We understand, Master.) The Maya threatened to take away at least 10% of my personal peace. It’s not just that he sends some so-called peace-threateners to make trouble for me, but he also makes other kinds of trouble, all kinds of small things, big things, and makes my dogs sick, many at the same time, so that I’m really, really… my head has to really kind of roll around, in order to organize all that, because all the dogs have to be separated into different rooms, from all the healthy dogs, etc. etc. It takes a lot, a lot of work, headaches. He is really punishing me hard. So, I have to work as usual, and I have no time to eat, no time to sleep, and I have to do all kinds of things like that. Just truly, relentlessly. So, 10% of my peace is a lot already, apart from many other things that he does, the Maya, not just 10% peace alone. (Yes, Master.) So, this guy is really hateful. I don’t blame anybody if they hate him. So, I tell you what I can and (tell you) whenever… (Thank You, Master. Thank You for sharing.) …whatever you need, OK? You don’t always have to know. What I tell you is very little anyway, just like a pinch of salt, compared to the whole fields of salt making on the whole planet. (Yes, understand, Master.) It’s not easy to be a Master; you have no idea. I also don’t have time to tell you everything about that. You don’t need to know anyway, no need. It’s not all very happy or pleasant or happy ending or good luck and stuff like that. If I didn’t have disciples, no one could touch me. Not even God Almighty. This is what I meant by “no one can touch me,” “no Maya can touch me.” But because of disciples, they do. New disciples all the time. (Yes, Master.) And people come in, don’t always meditate well. They don’t meditate, not all of them meditate well. They come in just to ask for anything, healing or whatever, fortune, stuff like that. That’s why when Milarepa studied under Marpa, and before he departed from his Master, Marpa told him, “Don’t bother to go and save any humans. Most of them, they only ask for mundane things. Just go into the mountains somewhere and meditate, and practice to liberate yourself; that should be good enough. Don’t bother with any humans.” That’s why Milarepa had very few disciples or no disciples, maybe just followers. He mostly only hid himself in some caves in the mountains, and even had no food, no offerings, nothing. He just ate some plants to survive, some plants that survive in such an area like the Himalayas. Just ate them to survive, and then he became, he looked green, and grew green hair just like the plants that he ate; nettle, nettle I think. (Nettle plant.) Nettle plant, yeah. And because these plants, they have hair, green hair, growing around the leaves. So, he ate a lot of them. That’s the only thing he could find over there, nearby I guess, and it was easy to find on such a cold mountain like Tibet. That’s probably the only plant he could find or any other similar. So, he grew green hair all over his body, and his hair also became green. And a few, when people saw him in the cave, they were scared, and they asked, “Are you…?” And afterward, they’d come back and see again and he looked like normal but he looked so green, and grew green hair. “Are you a real human or are you a ghost?” And he said, “I’m a real human.” Remember? (Yes, Master.) If you read those stories. I read it a long time ago already. I don’t know, forty years, half a century ago. Oh God! Time passes so quickly.

Over the decades, how much have I told you about loving others, and loving and respecting other sentient beings? Have I told you? (Yes.) You also know that recently, a few weeks ago, I went into retreat for animals. It's not like I didn't set an example of how I treat my dogs. Everybody knows how I treat my dogs, right? Whatever we do, just imagine it's us. Anything that we don't want to happen to ourselves or have other people do to us, then we don't treat others like that, and it would be OK. It's a very simple concept.

The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity - Refrain from Stealing and Lying, Part 3 of 7, Dec. 23, 2018

The Surangama Sutra: The Four Clear and Unalterable Instructions on Purity - Refrain from Stealing and Lying, Part 3 of 7, Dec. 23, 2018

And stealing is also harming others in a different way, because if you steal somebody’s money or something that he or she needs, then you discomfort that person. So, these are unalterable rules of the universe that you must keep in order to be liberated. If cultivators of Chan Samadhi, do not cease stealing, they are like someone who pour water into a leaking cup and hopes to fill it. So, if you don’t keep these basic precepts, then no matter how long you meditate, it just keeps leaking out, gone, gone to the Maya power. The Maya will take it and use it to harm you and harm others as well.

Върховната милост на Бог се прояви - част 4 от 5

Yeah, should be really grateful. Be grateful and be happy and then you’ll get more. And how many times you can see me? How many millions, billion years, that you could even see me once? One guy has been searching for me 800 years long. There are many people like that. Many lovers, they search for each other for sometimes... the longest would be, like, 1,000 years. Since the time of creation on this planet. But the ting is, the thing is you don’t know how to stay together. But the people don’t know how! If they really love that person so much, they have to practice spiritually. The same level will go to the same place. Otherwise, no!

So, keep the Five Precepts. Always think good, do good, and help others if you can. Then you will be surely reborn again as a good human, have a decent life or maybe a rich life, it depend on how much you give and how much heart you have while you're giving it, how pure you are when you give it. You set your mind truly, firmly on the path of renunciation, and to help yourself and sacrifice for others. This is the symbol of sacrifice and disregard for your comfort, for other beings in the future. Because to be a monk, your ideal is to liberate others, to help others to understand the holy teachings, not for yourself only.

The Surangama Sutra: Twenty-Five Means to Enlightenment, Session Two, Part 2 of 6 April 5, 2019

“We first heard the Dharma and left the home-life under King of Awesome Sound Buddha. Once, when it was time for the sangha to bathe, I followed the custom and entered the bathhouse. Suddenly I awakened to the fact that water does not wash away the dust, nor does it cleanse the body. At that point, between the two, I became peaceful, and I attained the state of there being nothing at all.” “ ‘To this day, I have never forgotten that past experience. Having left home with the Buddha, I have gone beyond learning. That Buddha named me Bhadrapala. Wonderful touch was revealed, and I accomplished the position of the Buddha’s disciple. The Buddha asks about perfect penetration. As I have been certified to it, touch is the superior means.’”

Будистки истории: Заслугите от благотворителността и спазването на Петте Предписания и Брама моли за Дарма, част 1 от 10

I promised you to talk about the fish. There was a rich person. He was very, very rich but he had no son. So, both of them, husband and wife went all over every possible worshiping area to plea for a son. Because of their sincerity, she gave birth to a son, finally. And then one time both of them went out to near the river, playing and having picnic and then because they were happy, so they were tossing their child up and down, up and down. Then she was so happy, and distracted by the joy and then the baby fell into the water. At the end of this river, there was a little village and there, there was also a very rich family and the rich father also had no son. He kept praying everywhere but didn’t get any….

You go to the Fifth Level, you are free forever. You enjoy limitless freedom and bliss. You will never think of anything, of going back or anything. In the universe, just like everything else, whatever is lighter and finer stays on top. And everything heavier stays down there. So, imagine you go to the Fifth Level, at the time you see the Lord of the Fifth Level, you will have no more desire for anything else! Hes is so glorious and so brilliant and so benevolent, so loving, so kind, so compassionate, so beautiful, so magnificent.

Vegan Trends Around the World, Part 1 of 11 Aug. 05, 2015

The vegetarian (vegan) trend is reported everywhere. "7-Eleven has quietly switched to vegan mayo." Wow! “Just Mayo, Hampton Creek Foods backed by VC (venture capital) firm Khosla Ventures, Bill Gates, and Li Ka-shing, richest man in Asia, have secured total funding for Hampton Creek, now at $120,000,000; $113,000,000 of which came about this year, 2014.” “Beyond Meat backed by Twitter’s co-founder Evan Williams and Biz Stone, leading VC firm Kleiner Perkins, an early investor of Amazon, Google, and Facebook."

Equanimity Of The Buddha: The Story of Ni Đề, Part 2 of 4, Aug. 11, 2015

Important is soon to go out of this world and what will you take with you? Nothing but spiritual merit and good deeds. That’s the only thing you can take with you. Remember that very well, I’m serious. Just like in the class, the teacher always praises the good student, “Oh yeah, this is a good example, good student.” But if some students are bad, behave badly, then she also has to address it, for everybody to understand. I know you don’t like negative things. Nobody likes it, least of all me. But it happened, so I have to tell you. It’s really bad, not just normal bad – really bad, hellish bad. Too sad, too sad. I don’t want people to have also the wrong concept, thinking that all my disciples are angels. Most of them are. Some still need to trim and… Trim and help. Just like Devadatta. Yeah. Life after life he’d been a bad guy. Maybe it’s his job. But the Buddha also talked about that. He didn’t hide that and He also told Ananda, “No, everybody’s good, everybody good.” Devadatta is His cousin. Also studied with Him, disciple and all that. Every time he competed with Him, every time tried to slander Him and do all kinds of things to harm the Buddha. What did the Buddha do? Anything wrong? (No.) Have you found anything wrong with Him? No! (No.) He teaches people, “Be good, do good.” He sacrificed His kingdom. Come and walk bare feet and bearing all the hardships and the criticism from outside and inside also. Just to help sentient beings. And originally, He didn’t even want to do that. He wanted to go to Nirvana, remember? I don’t blame the guy. Who wants to stay here? Just because the Brahman asked, so He had to do it. I had never wished to be your Master, in the beginning also, and now, until the end. I never wished to be any Master of any kind. I’m repeatedly requested by the Brahman who manifested as my first Indian disciple, and my four, first Taiwanese (Formosan) disciples, and my five first African-American disciples. Wherever I go, just pushing me out, understand that? (Yes, Master.) I never wished, I never thought even to be a Master or anything. Never, ever. Never ever did. I never even thought about that. I’m just like you. Would you have thought that you want to be a Master of any kind, any of you? (No.) No. You just study and you meditate and you’re happy that everything’s smooth in your life after initiation and that you understand something and you’re happy. You never thought, “Oh, one day I’ll be Master.” Nothing!And then I’m always pushed out by different countries. I went to Germany, it’s the same. I was in India, the same. At that time I was even just a silly so-called disciple, walking around the Ganges with the three pajamas – no, punjabs. Looked like pajamas, but decent, long, white. I had very little money in my pocket. Meditate here, meditate there. I never thought. Already in India, I was even in the bud, not yet open. Want to be my disciple already. You know the story? No? (I remember when you said it in a tape.) When I say what? (When you told this experience in a tape.) In a tape. Yeah. Even he knew. He knew it. You guys don’t know. (In the US or India?) No. In India. The first one ever, I was still in India. I was still being a so-called disciple, feeling like a disciple. Never thought of anything else, just enjoying my time, meditation. In India at that time, I still went to the little island in the middle of the Ganges to meditate. You can do it in the daytime. Nighttime the water rises up and you can’t get out. One day it’s like that. I meditated too long, I forgot. And when I came back, I didn’t know how I got back. But I did get back. Because the water rises up, I didn’t see the stones anymore to walk on. But somehow I got out. I was thinking, “Oh my God, I’m going to drown here. I can’t swim with this kind of current.” So strong. So I had to get out quick. Somehow I got out. I don’t know, I just walked. I just walked, I just walked and then said, “I have to get out, I have to get out.” And then I got out. At that time I was still meditating like that. And then I went to a shop, I wanted to buy a book. I remember it was Bhagavad Gita, a small book, cheaper. They had also a big book in golden print and all that, but I bought a very little one, like this small. I went to that bookshop and asked for Bhagavad Gita and they told me, “We don’t have it, ma’am. Sorry, you come back another time.” I said, “You have it, I saw it. I saw it when I was in the shop the other day. So, I didn’t bring money, today I want to come back to buy.” They said, “No, we don’t have it. We didn’t have it for many weeks already. So, sorry, you’re wrong. Maybe in another shop.” I said, “You are the only shop that I go to. There’s no shop around here that sells books.” I only stayed in that vicinity, I didn’t go anywhere yet. Every day I’d go meditate and come back. I was very poor then and just ate chapati and peanut butter and cucumber, maybe, every day. I do it myself, chapati, it’s cheaper even. You buy flour, mix it with water, Ganges water, and you make into a dough and then you… I bake it on the only plate I have. Told you, to cook tea and chapati same time. Oh no, I mean in the same place. Just about this deep, the plate. Looks like a soup plate, because it’s deeper than the flat one. So I used that because you can boil water also with it, you can cook chapati with it. Because chapati, people do it in a flat plate. No ring around, no wall around. But I can’t afford everything, so just buy cheap and light to carry. And then I said, “You have it, I know you have it. The other day I wanted to buy, but I didn’t buy. Today I bring money, I buy.” I did not have much money, just a little. But I wanted to buy that book to read what it is all about, because I heard somebody talk about it, just some sentences, and it aroused my interest, I wanted to buy. “No, don’t have, don’t have. Sorry, sorry.” I said, “You have it.” And they said, “No, we don’t have.” “OK, fine. All right then, maybe I’m mistaken.” And then one person sat inside there with the owner of the shop. He said, “You come here. I want to read Your palm.” I said, “No. I don’t believe in such things, forget it.” Because, according to tradition, after you’re initiated, your destiny changes. You won’t… Nobody can read you, nothing. You are not in the world, you are not in this system. So the destiny, you can’t read, future, nothing. Future you take care of yourself. You do good, then your future is good. You’re put back in the path of self-mastery. Not become a master of anybody; master of yourself. You decide your life from now on. It gives you a taste of Heaven, and then it changes your concept, changes your life. You know Heaven exists, the Light, Sound, Buddha exists. You might see Jesus, Buddha, etc., Heaven, then you know. OK. And then you are put on the Path of Five Disciplines. Then from now on you decide your life. So your future, nobody can read, supposed to. So I said, “No, I don’t believe in that. Besides, I don’t have money to pay you. I’m sorry, sir.” He said, “No, no money. I just want to read You.” I said, “But why me?” He said, “You are something special. I don’t know what. Come here, I read You.” And then he came and read me. And he said, “Oh, You’ll soon become Buddha,” things like that. So everybody around, “Oh, really? Teach us, teach us!” So I said, “No, you said soon, not now. Maybe soon, OK.” And then suddenly, the owner somehow went into the back of his room where the storage was and he said, “Oh, I found the book! You still want to buy?” I said, “Of course I want to buy.” So everybody thought I’m, like, clairvoyant, future-to-be Buddha and all that, so they all want to learn. But I run. I run. And next day, nobody’s there, I pass by again. It’s my path to go home, my mud hut. So the shop owner came out and said, “Oh, Master, please teach me, please teach me!” He’s young, very lovely. I said, “No, no. I’m not a Master, I’m just still meditating. I’m just learning.” He said, “No, no, You are a Master, You’re a Buddha.” I said, “No, to-be maybe, but not now.” “Oh no,” he insisted. “Never mind, You teach me. To-be-Buddha or not to-be-Buddha, teach me, please, please!” And he knelt down, and I said, “OK, OK! OK, stand up, don’t make a fuss. Everybody come and look and I’ll be more in trouble. Stand up, stand up, OK, OK, OK! Stand up! I’ll teach you, I’ll teach you! Just stand up!” I’m worried, worried all the tourists and all the Indians. Indians, they’re very sincere. When they see any Master they think it’s a Master, or somebody told them it’s a Master, they believe. And I’m worried the whole village would come. And tourists and all. So I said, “Stand up, stand up! OK, OK, I teach you!” What to do? I said, “But…” I thought, “OK, I find a way to get out.” So I said, “Tomorrow.” I remember I said four o’clock, not five. Or at least something before five, at least five o’clock. I said, “You come early in the morning to the other side of the Ganges. I’ll be there and I’ll teach you then, if you come on time.” I thought he wouldn’t come. Number one, it’s too early, no boat. Number two, it’s too early, just… I thought today he just said that, but tomorrow… I said, “So many Masters in India, you go search for them. I’m just a tourist here, I’m just learning.” OK. Tomorrow he came. I don’t know, he didn’t swim. There is a bridge very, very far away, I didn’t know. Because I didn’t go over there. So he crossed the bridge and went over. But it’s very far for walking, because there’s no car on the Ganges bank. Nothing there. He walked all the way to… far, far away and then he crossed the bridge and went over. So I had to teach him right there on the Ganges river bank. So I used the drawing on the sand and told him this and that, and then he left. I thought that’s it, maybe just go from one ear to another, but I tried my best. My reluctant disciple, first time. Forced, forced disciple. OK, I left. Many years later, I don’t remember … I became a nun already, so it must be many years, I came back somehow to this area. I don’t know, I don’t remember for what reason, and I passed by his shop. He came out, jumped out, “Oh, my great Master coming, my great Guru coming! Guruji coming! Great Master! My big Master!” Big Master, you know? And then everybody ran after him and ran after me. And then he invited me to the house. They followed us all the way to the house. And then his wife made some food, and then I just stayed for a while and then I left. So, he still remembered me even though I changed. When I was in India, I had long black hair. And at that time when I came back, I was in monk’s robe, no hair. Like… yeah, like them. And he remembered. It was kind of embarrassing, but it was funny. Why did I talk about this? Because you asked? Oh no, no, somebody asked. Oh, you said you read it. Oh, God. These two persons are very, very, very intelligent. He and his wife. They see, even this tape was an early tape, somehow, and he knows it, and you didn’t know. Shame on you. OK. Never mind. There’s too many, you can’t read it all. You’re busy, I understand. They do charity quietly. I just found out last night when I talked to them. So, support a little. This is the thing. You do good things, even quietly, Heaven knows, and somehow it happens that help will come your way, if you need it, if you need more. When I was a housewife, I earned very little money; I worked part time. Before I worked full-time, but after marriage I worked part-time for the Red Cross. And not… little pay, but good enough. But I gave most of my earnings to African children, orphans or whatever organization. So I wrote check, check, check and sent it, until I didn’t have much anymore, just enough money for bus, and… And then, always my ex-husband, he wrote manifold, and put it in my bank account for me. Many times. I remember that. That’s how… Even then, at that time he was still in apprenticeship, not a real… not an independent doctor yet. He had to practice in different clinics and he had to pay mortgage for the house and for the car and everything. He still gave me a lot of money. For him at that time it was a lot. 4,000 Deutsch Mark. That’s a lot of money, back 35 years ago, and for him also. He was still almost like a student. Earned very little by working and practicing in different clinics, just to acquire experience. All doctors have to do that. They don’t just graduate, write the doctor degree, and then go out and open their own clinic or immediately get employed. No, no, they have to do apprenticeship. I think like every other job, right? And still so generous and kind. That’s why I always remember him. He did it quietly. But what I mean is, I didn’t expect that. But because I gave to charity and then he saw I had no money, he gave me more than what I had, more than what I gave. Of course it’s not much, but it’s still more than what I gave out. So, it’s like that. So, you just do good quietly and the reward will be openly. You’ll be surprised. You know it, right? Some of you know it. Like your brother and sister, they didn’t tell anybody what they’re doing. Just by the way, we were talking and then they slipped it out and then… I thought somebody else is doing it and they are helping, but they are doing it themselves. They try whatever they can to bring something, that people… maybe people even discard or don’t need in America, bring back to their country to help the poor children and village who has nothing. No medicine, no doctors, even clinics don’t have beds. So they bring whatever they can, whenever they can. And then because I heard of that, I helped them, too. And they were very surprised, “Oh, no, Master.” I said, “No, not for you, for them, so don’t say no.” Understand now? (Yes.) OK. Just do good. Now do we want to read a story or we want to sleep, we want to eat, we want to go out and make noise, what? (Story.) Story. OK, OK. Story is good. You want a hell story or you want…? (Heaven. Happy story.) Happy story. I’m not sure if any Buddha story is a happy story. Some happy story last night about Ananda, but mostly it’s just… He wants to teach people, he can’t just tell happy stories. He has to tell things that “Don’t do this and then you’ll be in trouble like this.” (That’s very important.)Huh? (That’s very important, Master.) What is important? (Even it’s maybe not nice talk, but you say the truth to us and it’s really important to us to grow and (Yeah.) to think about what we are doing wrong. (Yeah.) If you’re always talking the nice things, we don’t grow.) It is so happy, just laugh, laugh, laugh… Come back again. All of you must be vigilant, that’s it. Not just the person who committed something wrong or wrong concept, but you think about it, whether you have it yourself. Because you’re so many, you don’t even tell me your wrong concepts, so I don’t know. Therefore, I tell one here, everybody understands. If you have it, you change. If you don’t have, be glad that you don’t have. “Oh, Master, I’m a little better than that. Thanks God, thanks God!” So you can measure your attainment also. Like in the old time, the old lady, she had two jars, one black and one white bean. Whenever she did something wrong, she put a black in, and she did something good, she put a white. What if when you do nothing? What to do? Put a transparent grain. It’s not that. Like this you know if you’re bad or good. So slowly, slowly, before it was the black more than the white. And slowly every month she did that, or every day, then slowly the white was more in number than the black beans. And slowly, slowly, no black beans at all, just all white. That’s how we do it. We have to check ourselves. That’s why you have a diary. Don’t be too comfortable in this world. It will leave you. Whatever you do in this world, it will leave you. You will leave it behind, it will leave you. So, just do what you can, but remember that. Important is soon to go out of this world and what will you take with you? Nothing but spiritual merit and good deeds. That’s the only thing you can take with you. Remember that very well, I’m serious.
