From Sacred Jainism Scripture “Uttaradhyayana” – Lectures 11 & 12, Part 2 of 2

13:38

From Sacred Jainism Scripture “Uttaradhyayana” – Lectures 11 & 12, Part 2 of 2

We now invite you to continue listening to excerpts from the Twelfth lecture of “Uttaradhyayana,” one of the most important scriptures in Jainism. The story continued, as Harikesa-Bala, a great rishi, was badly treated by priests. “‘I am a chaste Sramana, controlling myself; I have no property, nothing belonging to me, and do not cook my food; I have come for food which is dressed for somebody else at the time when I call.’” “‘All the world knows that we are (as it were) the field on which gifts sown grow up as merit; Brahmanas of pure birth and knowledge are the blessed fields.’” “‘He is that austere ascetic, of noble nature, who subdues his senses and controls himself; the chaste man, who would not accept me when my own father, king Kausalika, gave me to him.’ ‘He is the man of great fame and might, of awful piety and power; do not injure him who cannot be injured, lest he consume you all by the fire (of his virtue).’” “‘Prostrate yourself before him for protection, you together with all of them, if you want to save your life and your property; for in his wrath he might reduce the world to ashes.’” “‘Doing no injury to living beings of the six orders, abstaining from lying and from taking what is not freely given, renouncing property, women, pride, and deceit, men should live under self-restraint.” “‘Penance is my fire; life my fireplace; right exertion is my sacrificial ladle; the body the dried cowdung; Karma is my fuel; self-control, right exertion, and tranquility are the oblations, praised by the sages, which I offer.’” “‘The Law (spiritual precepts) is my pond, celibacy my holy bathing-place, which is not turbid, and throughout clear for the soul; there I make ablutions; pure, clean, and thoroughly cooled I get rid of hatred (or impurity).’ ‘The clever ones have discovered such bathing, it is the great bath praised by the seers, in which the great seers bathe, and, pure and clean, they obtain the highest place.’”

From Sacred Jainism Scripture “Uttaradhyayana” – Lectures 11 & 12, Part 1 of 2

13:22

From Sacred Jainism Scripture “Uttaradhyayana” – Lectures 11 & 12, Part 1 of 2

The Jain lineage includes 24 Tirthankaras, or Beings who share Their enlightenment with others. The Tirthankaras’ teachings comprise the Agam sutras, which are the holy scriptures of Jainism. The 24th and last Tirthankara was Lord Mahavira, whose name means “Great Hero.” Born into a royal family in 599 BC, Prince Mahavira decided as a young man to pursue a solitary spiritual life. After 12 years of intensive meditation, He attained kevala jnana, or the highest wisdom. Supreme Master Ching Hai has offered tribute to the spiritual greatness of Lord Mahavira, as during lectures given in Taiwan, also known as Formosa, on various occasions. “I don’t know if anyone in the history of mankind could have done or could be doing or will be doing such an asceticism, such a sacrifice like the Lord Mahavira. We really salute Him and are grateful - to all that He had to endure for enlightenment, for the sake of others. All these sufferings are not for naught. They would benefit the world in some way or another, even without the Lord Mahavira knowing or even without the world people knowing or being grateful for.” Eleventh Lecture The Very Learned “He who is ignorant of the truth, egoistical, greedy, without self-discipline, and who talks loosely, is called ill-behaved and void of learning. There are five causes which render wholesome discipline impossible: egoism, delusion, carelessness, illness, and idleness. The eight causes of the discipline called virtue, namely: not to be fond of mirth, to control one's self, not to speak evil of others, not to be without discipline, not to be of wrong discipline, not to be covetous, not to be choleric, to love the truth; for they influence the discipline called virtue. A monk who is liable to the following fourteen charges, is called ill-behaved, and does not reach Nirvana: If he is frequently angry; if he perseveres in his wrath; if he spurns friendly advice; if he is proud of his learning; if he finds fault with others; if he is angry even with friends; if he speaks evil even of a good friend behind his back; if he is aggressive in his assertions; if he is malicious, egoistical, greedy, without self-discipline; if he does not share with others; if he is always unkind: then he is called ill-behaved.He who always acknowledges his allegiance to his teacher, who has religious zeal and ardor for study, who is kind in words and actions, deserves to be instructed.”

The True Christ Power, Part 9 of 9

22:17

The True Christ Power, Part 9 of 9

“As you sow, so shall you reap.” If we cause suffering to any beings in any form, directly or indirectly, we can never be completely feeling guiltless and, therefore, we cannot completely be happy. (What is the reason that, for some people, life goes all right, and for some people, they get all of a sudden injured in a traffic accident, or they take too much medication, or they get hospitalized or to be put into a mental institute, maybe? What is the reason that for some people, life goes all right, and some people obvious end up in trouble, hurt?)There are two reasons for things that happen in our lives. The first reason is that “as you sow, so shall you reap” – if we did something wrong, this wrong thing will return to us. And another reason is before we were born into this world, we have chosen certain events to happen to us so that we can experience and progress more in our spiritual practice. (In Finnish first, I have to translate. My name is Ebenezer. You mentioned that in order to get to a certain spiritual level, we should have less things to think of. My question is: in the world we live, we really have to be hardworking to survive. This has taken all the time we have. How then do we survive, thinking of spiritual growth in this sense? End of question.)I don't ask you to leave anything. I just ask you to leave the coarse energies of animal-people’ meat so that you can practice to see God better. (In Finnish. May I ask when shall we return to the place where we have been? That means that, before we came here, where were we?)It's up to you. You can return now after this lecture or you can return any other time. (To where? Where were we before this time?) To the Kingdom of God, to where you came from. (Next question. Please explain the goal and the process of Your system. Please explain about the Quan Yin Method.)Quan Yin is just the Chinese word for listening to the Word of God inside us. I started in Taiwan (Formosa), so it's the name, it's just become like... continued, but otherwise, in the Western terms, we can say “contemplation of the Word on God.” And there is no verbal system; it's just (that) the real power of God will re-open within yourself in silence. The verbal instruction is just to tell you what not to do, how to distinguish between the God and the fake, the devil who fakes Hirm, and which kind of signal, like what kind of Light, what kind of Sound you will hear, in which different mansions of God, so that you'll know what level you are in. (Next question in Finnish. Many people despise animal-people and just abuse them or utilize them, exploit them, consider them of lesser value and torture them. I love animal-people and I wish You would show in Your speech, if possible, the value of the animal-people.)Yes, that's why I ask you, I advise people to be vegan, to extend our love to lesser brothers and sisters who are more defenseless, who are weaker than us. In the Bible, God said that, “I made all the animal-people to be your friends and your helpers.” Hes did not tell us to eat them. (Next question in Finnish. What do You think of angels and spiritual leaders?)Angels, they are our friends. The ones who know God have so many angels surrounding them, to help them. And spiritual leaders, you mean the invisible ones? (I don't know, he didn't say.) OK, the visible ones are the ones who teach us how to go back to God, if they have enough High-level of attainment themselves. And the invisible ones are the ones who have left this physical body or the ones who have not come to this physical body. If they are good spiritual beings, they also help us in our daily meditation. Next one, please. (What is enlightenment?) This you cannot talk, you have to experience. Just stay after. Let me know, then I will show you. Come one, quick. (A Finnish, question. Is there a contradiction between Your explanation of the birth of the world, or when the world came into existence, and the scientific explanation of how the world came about? How the world was created.) Ah, the creation. (Creation, OK.) The scientists only know the physical aspect. Because they study only material science; they have not studied spiritual science. That's why when a person dies, everything is still there, but he doesn't function – because the spiritual being has left the material being. (Last question, in Finnish. Can I be happy with God even if I am not a vegetarian?)Well, the answer, you know it yourself: “As you sow, so shall you reap.” If we cause suffering to any beings in any form, directly or indirectly, we can never be completely feeling guiltless and, therefore, we cannot completely be happy. We can be happy to some extent. Right. OK, anything else? No more? Ah, fantastic! OK! Thank you. I'll see you in a short while. OK. For the ones who'd like to know, please stay here. And the ones who don't want to know, God bless you and goodbye.God is something very precious. If you want to know Hirm, you have to make an effort. Go out and put you name down, and be serious about it. Then I will be serious with you. I’ll teach you everything that I know. OK, I'll see you after a while. (Right now, a little message to everybody here as there are a lot of people who have got the curiosity about the Quan Yin Method. So, there are a lot of people outside right down there in the hall, collecting the initiation forms and filling them in. So, I kindly remind those who are still interested, please, you are welcome to do that. And when everybody’s ready, we can get started. We are happy to see that there were so many interested people. And I’ll say it in Finnish also.Everybody, there are fruits blessed by Master, ocean of fruits and flowers. So, whoever is in need of Her precious blessing, please feel free to come close to Master. So please come to the front, whoever wants to be in touch with Master. And when you are ready with the initiation forms, please don’t worry; you can sit down in the hall and just relax for a little while and wait. So, we’ll call you all up; we’ll guide you to the meditation as soon as everything is ready. Thank you very much.)

The True Christ Power, Part 8 of 9

20:53

The True Christ Power, Part 8 of 9

True happiness only comes from knowing God, which is the essence of our being. But in this world there are also some substitutions for happiness, and we can feel them temporarily. But the true happiness, we cannot compare to any of the so-called happiness in this world. I pay my own tickets, I pay my own hotel, I pay my own food. I risk airplane prob… airplane. I risk my life, I risk my health, I forsake my pleasure. I waste my time coming here just because I know that the way to God, there is only one, and everyone can know it. The way to end all this war and misunderstanding is just to know God, and I know this God, and Hes told me to tell you. And I will never ask one penny from you until the day you die or the day I die. Any service from me is free of charge. So you must know, I don’t collect donations. You must know the reason why I do it is because of the mandate of Heaven, because God orders me to do it. I am not for any fame and profit of this world because I have Hiers Kingdom in my heart. So, believe it or not, it is up to you. Thank you. All right, next question. Thank you. Thank you. (First in Finnish. Can eggs be included in a vegetarian diet?) Eggs, no. Why? I will explain. Eggs contain the life, the cycle of birth and death, the force of birth and death. And, we never know whether the egg is fertile or not fertile and we might eat the embryo of the egg.You are tired, huh? We’ll finish soon. It’s a very difficult job to translate.Also, eggs will attract negative energy. That's the reason why many of the magicians, they use eggs sometimes in an exorcism to draw the negative, possessed energy from a possessed person. You know that. Maybe you know. And sometimes they use eggs to feed the invisible low spirits so that they can boss them around and tell them to do bad things. So we do not want to have egg inside our body in case we might draw the negative energy directly to us. That's why we exclude eggs in our diet. OK, next one, please. Last one? (First in Finnish. What means “happiness”? Somebody said, “Whoever is better than another, that's happiness.” What is Your idea?) Happiness? True happiness only comes from knowing God, which is the essence of our being. But in this world there are also some substitutions for happiness, and we can feel them temporarily. But the true happiness, we cannot compare to any of the so-called happiness in this world. Some more? Some more questions? OK, let’s have it quick, so we can show people God. (Excuse me.) Yes, sir. (Yes. I would like very much to hear what is Your method) Yes, yes. (and what are You going to talk…?) Yes, yes, yes. I will show you, for the interested ones only. (Do we have any time to make those questions after You have told us about this method?) Questions are plenty. We can ask anytime. But the method, I will show only to the interested persons. I cannot force it upon the whole of the people who don’t want to know. You understand? (I understand, but You are going to…) Yeah, I will, I will show you. (OK. First in Finnish.) OK. Can I make a quick announcement? Those who want to know the method, you can go out and announce your name there and later we’ll call you, in the meanwhile, so you don’t have to wait long. And when I finish these questions, you come in, and we’ll start right away, so you don’t have to wait. You can go now, can go now, please. Can you announce it? Yes, yes, yes. You can go also. (OK.) All right. Yes, you, question, yes. Please be quiet. (I want to know my original source. How can I see it? Who can show it to me, my original source?) Who can I see or whom? (How can I see it?) How! Oh, God! (Who can show it to me?) I will show you; I will show you. If you let me know you are interested, go outside and put your name down. I’ll show you very shortly. (In Finnish.) All right. (Next question in Finnish. I am impatient and I would like to see the mind's nature. How can I see it or who could show it to me?)I think some of you would have seen a little of God while listening to my lecture also, just you didn't say it. Yes, yes, right? Some people say “yes.”And one of the gentlemen says, “Yes, yes.” If you are pure enough in your heart while listening to me, you already see the Light all over here; you have seen God or you have seen Christ already. But I will show you more after this. (Next question in Finnish. In English. Are there any dangers in meditation?) Any what, honey? (Is it in any way dangerous to meditate?)Oh. Yes, it is, if you don't know it properly. You must get the instruction and then you can do it alone at home, because you must know how to distinguish between the real and the illusion, because sometimes Satan, he comes and poses as the fake Jesus Christ and talks nonsense to you, and if you don't know the way to discriminate, you’d listen to the devil instead of Jesus Christ. That's why I have to take time to take care of you, to explain to you before you see God, how to distinguish. That takes a little time. (For what universal purpose a person must develop spiritually? Is this energy needed or this Light needed? Why do we have to develop spiritually?)Because, first, so that we can get out of suffering and frustration and limited freedom. Second, to bless ourselves and the universe and all the loved ones so that we can avoid hell and go to Heaven. (In Finnish, next question first. In English. Ordinary people, can they become enlightened, and if so, how? What kind of meditation do You use to become enlightened?)I am here for all the ordinary people. I am not here for the president of Finland. He can also learn, but... Yes. We are all ordinary, but we are all great because we are the children of God. There are no “ordinary people.” (Next question in Finnish. From the age of seven, I have prayed to God. Why can't I hear or feel any kind of answer? I am about to lose my faith.) Yes, yes. (In Finnish now, I am...)No, that’s right. Everybody prays to God but often don't get the answer because they are not connected with the God inside. That's why I am here to revive your faith again in God, so do not lose faith in God because God is there. I am going to show you Hirm so that you can believe Hirm again, and then, you don't even have to pray – God answers you, even before you pray. God answers us all the time, it's just that we don't have the spiritual “ear” open so we cannot hear Hirm. I am going to help you to open your Heavenly ear so you can hear Hirm.

The True Christ Power, Part 7 of 9

22:45

The True Christ Power, Part 7 of 9

I am very clear about God because Hes reveals to me inside myself. Your God, my God – same God – just that you don't know Hirm yet. I know Hirm. When you meditate with my method, you can see Jesus yourself and ask Him yourself. (In English. Considering the spiritual path, is it right and blessed to adopt children from another culture?)Culture and traditions are man-made, spiritual way is God-made. It's always the same for every race. So, you don't have to change any kind of outer way of living, just practice contacting God inside by yourself, alone. Look, I come here, I wear a Western outfit, it's all right. (What kind of outfit?) Western. Makes no difference. God is only one. There is no Chinese God, Finnish God, German God, French God. (Is Your relationship to God as servant to the master, or as equal?) As what to the Master? (Servant.) As servant? Oh. No, no. Equal! We are God. As in the beginning, maybe we are still so not used to our original position, we might worship God as a Master, and we feel ourselves as a servant, but later Hes will bless us to know that we are one with God. Just like Jesus said, “I and my Father are one.” God made man in Hiers own image, so we are a part of God. How can it be master or servant? There is no master; we are all masters. It's just the language of the world sometimes separates us. (Next question. In Finnish. In English. If we are God, who will decide whether we get to go to Heaven?) You decide. (Second question in Finnish. In English. Jesus said, “Who is not for me is against me.” This means we cannot be God, although You appeal to or You refer to the Bible and to Jesus.) Hmmm? (That was the question. Shall I repeat it?) I know, I know, but what do you think?The Bible says that you are the children of God, not I say it. The Bible says that God makes you in Hiers own image, not I say it. The Bible says that you are the temple of God, and God lives within you, not I say it. So if this body is just a temple, and God lives within you, and then who are you? You are not God, then who are you? Are you the devil? What do you think? If you come from God, then you are God, part of God, no? At least part of God. No? So how do you say that I’m against Jesus? It’s your misunderstanding. It is your misunderstanding.I am very clear about God because Hes reveals to me inside myself. Your God, my God – same God – just that you don't know Hirm yet. I know Hirm. When you meditate with my method, you can see Jesus yourself and ask Him yourself. Now, because you don't have access to Jesus, you don't have access to God, so you misunderstand a lot about what the Bible says and what I say. Yes? Yes, He is. Christ is the only way. Listen, listen. I know you have not spoken to Jesus. The way you said it, I know. Don’t tell lies, because God knows.Jesus is a son of God, Christ is a son of God – Christ. You explain to him. Christ is the only son of God, because there is only one God, and Christ is the spirit of God which descends into Jesus' body to teach mankind. And in every generation, this only son of God, Christ, the power, Christ power, will descend into any other human body to teach mankind again, again and again. And whenever we can see this Christ power manifested somewhere, that is the son of God manifested to save us. Jesus still exists, but in another dimension, and the Christ power is still with Him, as well as within anyone that God has chosen to give this power. And this Christ power, the only son of God, is also within us.And that's why Jesus said that, “Know you not that you are the temple of God, and the Holy Spirit dwells within you?” Do not deny yourself this glory because you have God within you, you have Christ power within you. Christ also said that, “Whatever I do, you can do also.” Christ did not tell us that we are less, we are different from Him. We can do whatever He does, that's what He said in the Bible. Did He not? He just came to show us the way to know the God within us. He came to tell us that, “What I do, you can do also.” He came to show us that; but, of course, if we have not reached the level of Jesus Christ when He was alive, we could not understand His teaching very well. That's why there are so many wars even within Christianity, because they fight between whether this Christian group's God is higher than the other Christian group's God. It's a very sad affair. I hope I’ve made it clear. Thank you. Next one, please.(In Finnish. As we can see similarities between different religions, for instance, the enlightenment, when it comes to enlightened persons, such as Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, what is the common ground for Godliness in various religions? Or is there such a common factor when it comes to God? What or which is God?)Yes, which is God, there is only one. There is only one God, you know that. The only wise thing to do is just come and know this God. I just show you, and then you call Hirm whatever names you like. If you have time to study different religious doctrines, you will understand that they all point to the same God. The reason we argue between religions is because of two reasons. Number one, we don't have time to study all the religious doctrines. We don't even have time to study the whole bible of our own religion, to be honest, so we don't see the same essence of the teaching of all great religions and great Masters.Number two reason is that we are not enlightened enough to understand the real meaning of the religious doctrine. Remember the ones who wrote the doctrines, the Bible, for example, the ones who wrote the Bible are enlightened Saints. In order to know what they are talking about, we have to be at their level, and we are not.So we argue back and forth, we blame each other, we accuse each other, we slander each other's religious faith, and kill each other sometimes, because “my God is better than your God.” It is a shame. Suppose, if I believe in God, I should be a loving and kind person. I would never kill anyone else.So, if we don't understand a religion, it's a very dangerous thing. So please, I invite you to come and enlighten yourself, and then you can understand, and then you can teach others to understand the true meaning of Christ. I have no reason to sit here and tell you nothing that is not Truth.

The True Christ Power, Part 6 of 9: Questions and Answers Helsinki, Finland

The True Christ Power, Part 6 of 9: Questions and Answers Helsinki, Finland

This method is for everything. Once we find God, we will have more peace and love inside to deal with all these human emotions in a better way.(I have a question, I hope You will solve this for me. I am a student, and I have lost my ability to concentrate and my motivation. How or in which way can I get these back? With the Quan Yin Method maybe? I cannot really start with my studies yet. I am suffering very much. Only You, Master Ching Hai, can help me, and also You can help other students as well.)When you start to grow up in your teenage life, there will be many distractions, and that's why it's difficult for you to concentrate. You can also practice a little bit of meditation. If you want Quan Yin Method, it's fine. If you cannot, then you can practice a simple method of concentration to help you. Also, try not to watch too much of the distracting movies, and not to look around at beautiful women or handsome men too much. After you finish your study, of course you can do anything you want. Think of your parents and your benefactors who work very hard for your study, and try to fulfill your obligation - because the student time is actually the best time - or later you will regret it. And tell yourself you must finish this study in front of you first, and everything else comes later; determine to finish. (If soul is eternal, the body lives only for a short time, how long does a persona live?)The soul lives forever, of course. The personality is just the habit that we acquire while we are in this physical body, and it lives as long as the physical body lasts. Next one, please. (Why do human beings have to be born on Earth? Why do we have to be born here?)Because we chose to. We chose to come here to gather a new experience on this planet, and when the time comes, we go back Home, or we come back again if we have not had enough satisfaction with the experience on Earth. (In English. Can an enlightened person live in a partnership relation, in an intimate relation?) Of course. Where do you think all these babies and children come from? Funny, I didn't come to ask you to become a monk. I only come to ask you to add God into your existing life, to make your life even more happy, more complete. Of course, you can be a monk if you want to, but that is not obligatory. (That is not?) Obligatory. Not necessary. (Is there a method for letting go? Letting go, like, sorrow, anger.) Of course. This method is for everything. Once we find God, we will have more peace and love inside to deal with all these human emotions in a better way. Please, the next one. (How can You show us God?)I just will. If you stay behind, you will know how. If you stay later, I'll show you how. (If I find God inside of me, as I really hope, how can I help my husband in his life? Can we still live together if he is not interested in this? What would happen to me if he is not interested in…?)Yes, of course, you can still live with him. As I said before, everyone has the right to choose his way of living. If you can live with a dog, cat, bird, why cannot you live with another human being? Interested in this method or not, he is still a God himself. When his time comes, he will choose to know God. Maybe his time has not come, then he chooses not to want to know. So, do not be anxious for somebody else's development. Be anxious only for your own. We can only offer something, but the person takes it or not, that's his own right. OK, thank you. It's getting better now. (What is most important to get you up in the meditation level, to find the harmonic level? Do You have any good, simple advice?)I will tell you how to help yourself during the transmission. It takes some time to tell you all this because you should learn it in a proper way; otherwise, the enlightenment takes just seconds. (Seconds?) Seconds, yes. (My name is Isaac. What can I do when I am depressed and frustrated about life? Do I seek medical help or spiritual help? If the answer is spiritual help, how do I seek it?)Every problem in this life comes from we don't know God, comes from the ignorance of God's power within ourselves. So finding God, we will be happy. Every problem will go away by itself. Talking too much doesn't help you – knowing God will help you.

The True Christ Power, Part 5 of 9 Helsinki, Finland

Knowing God is not only to elevate ourselves: it will elevate the world; it will bless the world's atmosphere; it will have less war; it will have more peace, more love, more abundance to everyone around us.Therefore, the wisdom of the old Masters has taught us many things, such as we should love one another, such as we should be honest, such as we should love God with all our might. But how to love God, if we don't know Hirm? I am going to show you God, so that you can love Hirm and you can know Hiers love and blessing every day. Every religion talks about God, so much talk about God everywhere, it's about time we know God.Knowing God is not only to elevate ourselves: it will elevate the world; it will bless the world's atmosphere; it will have less war; it will have more peace, more love, more abundance to everyone around us. Because we will become the living pole of transmission of the love from Heaven, of the blessing from Heaven, and then it will emit from our being to the surroundings.So, knowing God, not simply just because we want to have the God power, it is because we want to love the world more, we want to bless the world more, and cause more happiness to our loved ones and to our planet – even larger, to the whole universe. Because we are all linked together with an invisible tie that we don't even see. It's just like all the atoms are linked together in every material subject in order to hold them in one piece. We are also like the atoms of the universe, and we make the universe’s construction exist in a solid manner, but invisible to the naked eye.So, if the Light, the power within us, is rekindled, then the whole universe will benefit. We originally came from God, and God has the same essence like we have.Although the Most High has no form, Hes can also manifest in different forms, just as in this physical body, like us sitting here, or in another kind of metaphysical form, which we will see inside while we meditate on Hirm.And this metaphysical form will teach us so many things that we want to know; will help us with all kinds of problems in this life and the next. We can even access Jesus, Buddhas, etc. – all the Masters in the past – and converse with Them, and let Them teach us Their wisdom until we reach Their height. All of us will wonder, “How come…” - if we say we are God - “How come we can become this physical body, which is so helpless and so cumbersome to carry around, which is so not free, so limited?” In my knowledge, in my meditation, God has shown me how it happened. It's difficult to explain in the human language, but I shall try my best.We were originally the essence of Light, the essence of the very fine, subtle vibratory energy which creates all these particles in the whole universe. By the process of churning, we have become condensed into this physical being. But then, I have also been shown that there is always a particle inside which has never been churned into physical being, inside us. That is the Lifesaver within ourselves, that is the so-called “the Holy Spirit that dwells within” this “temple of God.”We are at the bottom of the churning process of the Creation, that's why we are a little coarse, we are a little cumbersome, heavy. There are other finer vibrational energies which are floating above us, and we could have access to them if we raise our energy up to their standard.And now, there is still always this little spark within us that has never been contaminated, that has never been processed into physical energy, and that spark we can always have access to in order to return to where we have come from, to reverse the process, to go back to the original state of being, which is Light, which is the fine energy. And this Light, this fine energy, this fine so-called vibration – the “Word” in the Bible – this is God, this is our essence of being. So, to get in touch with this original, fine energy, original Light, original Word, that is to get in touch with God. Although God also can show us Hiers metaphysical form, as I have mentioned earlier, to converse with us.I hope I have made it a little clear to you. I believe that you are an intelligent race of people – you have understood. In case I have forgotten anything, please let me know and I will answer you, and then I can show you the practical question that you’ve come here for, that is, I can show you God. You can see Hirm right away. OK. Thank you for your attention. You have been so good, so good, so quiet. I could even hear my own breathing. Yes, any question, please address, then the translator will tell me. You can write in English also.(The first question was that we were talking about violence and the two forms of violence. There's the physical and mental violence in a family.) Violence? (Yes. And they say that, there’s always maybe one member in the family that is chosen as a scapegoat. And this member is being prejudiced against that they… This one person in the family has bad karma (retribution), and this person can be also forced into meditation against the person's will, which is against all the principles of meditation.) What kind of meditation is that? Nobody should force anybody into any kind of spiritual practice, meditation or not meditation. Everybody should choose what they want to do. Can you hear her? (Yes.) Good. Yes or no? (Yes.) OK, and what else is there? (The other...) Just very concentrated and simple. (OK. The other question is about the physical violence in the family. It's not right that the husband hits his wife or parents hit their children. But how to stop these things from happening? And how to give people better ways of dealing with conflicts in the family?)OK. Family problems always happen everywhere, and of course, we are civilized people, we should talk together. And if, after talking and discussing, it still doesn't work, then we have to think of a solution, either try to bear it, or separate.

The True Christ Power, Part 4 of 9 Helsinki, Finland

The True Christ Power, Part 4 of 9 Helsinki, Finland

Once we surrender ourselves to God's power, once we have connected ourselves with God power and surrendered to this power, everything will be taken care of to the minute detail. I have been traveling more than a month now, and every two days one country, and I have always found that I landed next to whatever I need. That is the extreme case.When I was in Slovenia... I am telling you all these experiences to assure you that you will be OK. We think that we change the way of life from flesh to vegan, but in fact we only return to what is right, or what we have forgotten. You can be courageous and decide that, OK, you follow through from today, or you can say, “OK, I try first.” And we have two ways for you to suit yourself.But vegan alone doesn’t make you find God; I have to show you. Then you can contact God every day, directly, just like using the Nokia or the Ericsson to say “hallo.” Even more direct than that, face to face. We all hear about God and Heaven, but we have never seen one, so it's about time to see. If God is there, we should be able to see Hirm somehow. There must be a way. If Heaven exists, we must be able to enter it, at least to peep, have a look. If I am such a small, humble person and can see Heaven, can talk to God, I am sure all of you can do even better. You are much more intelligent. Or even the old lady, very old – she cleans my room – she speaks, fluently, English. And, in case you have worried about the vegan diet, then don't be, because even if I am a stranger in your land and in every other land, I can find my way, then you can. Once we surrender ourselves to God's power, once we have connected ourselves with God power and surrendered to this power, everything will be taken care of to the minute detail. (I have to speak louder.) Yes, please. Please, because some people are very far, and some people have problem hearing. (OK.) Yes, thank you very much. Can you turn the volume higher? I know you have a very gentle voice, but here we need… Big hall, you see. That’s how we find courage, and we find all the strength to deal with all kinds of obstacles and problems in this life, once we are connected with God. All the Saints in the past, they have never, ever feared death, however humankind, however the enemies wanted to torture them, even cut their limbs one by one; they have always seen the glory of God, because they are so blissful inside. That we can be oblivious to outer influence, and to the pain of the world – doesn't matter how much the world wants to inflict suffering on us – we will not be so affected. Ah, yes, go back to Slovenia. I forgot about that. Of course, we travel, the big groups are traveling here also in order to help out with buying fruit, setting up microphone and printing a lot of free books for you, arranging lecture for you. But I travel alone, apart from them.So normally, I would take a taxi, and my luggage is very small like this – I have almost the same clothes, wash and wear again – so I always take a taxi. But in Slovenia, I don't know why that day there were only two taxis and they were taken immediately; probably they were already ordered from previously, and so they just came, fetched the customers, and drove away. There were buses, but they were full of people.There were taxis all over in the city, it's just that that day, they were not in the airport – nothing. It was the first time it ever happened, that I didn’t find any taxi at any airport like that. So, I kept waiting for a long time, and no other taxi ever showed up.So, I had to go and rent a car. There were also our brothers and sisters who came, but I wanted to let the other people, other brothers and sisters, go in the car. Because if they take care of me, there will be too much trouble, and other people don't have a car. There are no taxis.So, I went and rented a car in a nearby booth. I am not a good driver; I just began two years ago. I hardly drive; I normally have drivers. It’s just when I want to show that I am independent, then I go out and drive myself. So I rented a car. And then when I finished all the paperwork and everything, it took half an hour.And then when I came out, I discovered that it's a stick shift, it's not automatic, and I have never, ever driven a stick shift in my life! But somehow, I managed to drive to the city. It was a scary adventure. Of course, I asked the Father, “Please, You drive!” Because I never knew how to drive this car before.I am a very simple country girl, I am not used to complicated, mechanical stuff. And I couldn't believe it – I drove in a strange city with no experience, nothing! I drove to the hotel in the city.I just want to tell you that if we truly have connection with God, we have no fear; we can do anything and we are always protected. So, have no fear of, even, that we don't have food to eat or we don't have a means of transportation or that any problem in life may arise. We must be courageous and follow whatever our heart tells us “that is right.” You can also try to go slowly, but we are man, we can decide quick. Besides, the reason is that, once we are in contact with God and we want to become one with God and we want to be God-like, a walking God on this planet, then we should represent Hiers quality, which is Love, and Love includes all beings.When we want to go into a higher dimension of Heaven – Heaven has many levels, just like in this society we have different classifications – if we want to go into the highest dimension of Heaven and know the deepest secret of the universe, we should have less and less burden as possible. And those things that we consume, such as alcohol, drugs and flesh, these are the burdens that are very detrimental to our journey to Heaven.Not that God cares about what we eat or what we take into our physical body. It is just that we must be purified physically, emotionally, and spiritually in order to be a unique being, glorified that we are, that is, the children of God.God loves us, no matter how much we sin. No matter how many blunders we committed, God always loves us, and in Hiers eyes, we are always Hiers children. But for ourselves, for our conscience, we should, we must walk the noble way of Love, in order to feel free from any guilt feeling, in order to be one with Hirm. Because originally, we are God, and eventually, we will become one with the Ocean of Love that is God again. We are God manifested in this physical world. So there is no one to judge us whether we are bad or we are good, except ourselves, our own wisdom, our own conscience, our own fairness of knowledge that will judge ourselves at the time of departure from this world.That's why we must rid ourselves of all this unnecessary burden so that we can recognize the pureness essence of original Self, which is from God, which is great, which is all-love, all-light, all-blessing. …I’m sorry. I am sorry. You are doing great. It's just I speak so fast.

The True Christ Power, Part 3 of 9 Helsinki, Finland

24:44

The True Christ Power, Part 3 of 9 Helsinki, Finland

We have spent a lot of time in some of the useless pursuits, and which we sometimes regret later. So, now that we know how to find God – I am going to show you – now that we know the way to find freedom, the way to find happiness inside, we will make use of this wasted time only, the free time only, to turn it into the precious discovery of the Kingdom within ourselves.Sometimes I am just so… bursting inside and I just don't know how to explain this to people. I look back at my life before and I look at my life now, there are differences. I was so bound, so limited, so restricted, by myself, by all kinds of conventions, by all kinds of prejudice, by all kinds of traditional thinking and way of life that even though I lived in free, democratic countries, I never felt truly free.And then, when I first got a glimpse of God, first got a taste of enlightenment, I thought, “That's it! I am free!” I felt free. But then, that was just a fraction of the freedom, until I kept continuing to recognize this freedom, and then it grew and grew until I cannot explain anymore what true freedom is. I just know I am free. And when I looked at some of our brothers and sisters who are still in the stage that I was before, I’d feel sorry, because this freedom, every one of us can attain, but not every one of us has. Even enlightened people will take a little while to get the complete freedom. It's not the outside freedom, it's not the outward action, like you have to jump around or shouting on the street or advocate for your own freedom inside. It's just the limitless feeling of expansion that you could be anything you want, you could do anything you want, and yet, you still remain in virtues, you still remain in God's love, you still remain in perfection. And yet, no one will ever be harmed, be killed, or be suppressed in any way by our attaining our freedom. We work so hard daily just to attain the freedom of living, the freedom of survival, so we can have enough food, we can have enough necessities to take care of our physical life. So, it is about time. Since we have everything already in this physical comfort, it is about time we work for our spiritual freedom. It is the new season, I think we can begin to do something new, and I come here to offer you a new way, a newfound freedom that you will never regret again, that you have never found before no matter how much money you have. Excuse me. You know the smoking cough. I also have to share the generosity of the smokers around Europe when I travel. Just like I want to offer you a method to find freedom, they offer me their secondhand smoke.Well, everyone offers what they have, so I offer you the best that I have. And this offering will never cost us anything, not even effort. Not even effort because we have it inside us already. All we have to do is just to make use of it. It's even cheaper than the water that I drank this morning. You have to pay for water here, right? Tap water? Well, even if you don't have to pay for the water, we still have to pay tax in order to make the pipe and the water tower and everything. But to drink the water of life – this means the water of blessing from God – we don't have to ever, ever pay one penny. And it takes as much time as... just like we sleep or we rest on a coffee break. It’s OK? Can hear? Yeah.We have spent a lot of time in some of the useless pursuits, and which we sometimes regret later. So, now that we know how to find God – I am going to show you – now that we know the way to find freedom, the way to find happiness inside, we will make use of this wasted time only, the free time only, to turn it into the precious discovery of the Kingdom within ourselves.So, there is not even time that we need, not even effort that we need. All we have to do is know how to find God. All of us know that sometimes, we just don't know what to do also with some of our free time. Sometimes, we are so bored – the time we sit on the train, the time we sit on the buses, the time we sit on the airplane, or the time, sometimes we just sit in the park doing nothing. All these times, we can turn into conducive moments to enjoy the freedom within, and then manifest it also without. The people... Sorry, love. You’re all right? The people of Finland have everything already, almost. You even have one of the best telecommunication systems. I use them. I use your telephone, two of them, two of the most famous. So, actually, I cannot offer you any more material comfort than your country already offers, itself, but I can offer you something greater than earthly possessions and success – I can offer you the Kingdom of God, which you have forgotten. And it's so easy, like you are looking at the flowers now. Because it is so easy, I am confident that almost all of you would want to have it because it is the greatest thing you can have.But one thing, a little bit impractical, that I also share the sympathy with you, it is maybe the way of life that we are used to. We are, scientifically speaking, originally vegan beings, because we have a longer intestine than those who eat flesh, like tiger-people for example. But since we are being taught to be used to eating flesh, it might be a little difficult to go back to the original way of life. And for that, we also have some, like a so-called convenient way, so you can try to get used to the vegan diet. And we also will teach you to cook, and sample those cookbooks for you, etc., etc. Maybe that will help a little bit to facilitate your transition back to the original, noble way of life. Because these days I also have been traveling alone. I mean completely alone, with luggage and check in, check out, tickets and booking, everything alone, just to try to see how an ordinary person fares his way through the world if he is to be vegan. And I found that it's not always that simple for you. Because I travel alone. But if you travel together, two, it's easier. You can also bring simple things to cook and it will be fine. And nowadays, almost every hotel and restaurant, they have a vegan menu, a small one. And in the airplane also, you can demand vegan food, but not very, very generous vegan food. I think many people still have the notion that vegan means only vegetables. Or some people think that fish is also a vegetable – funny idea, of course. But then, if many of us practice the spiritual way of life, then God will provide, just like God has provided me these days with everything that I need, even though I travel from one country to another, not knowing where I will land and in which hotel I will have a room, because I don't book in advance. I just want to see how God will provide things for me. And we can survive all right.But of course, if we stay home and cook for ourselves, it is much more tasty and more nutritious. When I am at home, I hardly ever get sick of any kind at all. It’s just when I travel, I always get infected. Anyhow, most of us don’t have to travel, so it’s all right. So, this is the only thing that I found up to now. A setback for most of the people is the vegan diet that they are afraid of. But it must not be, must not be an obstacle. Once we have the will, there is a way, and God really will provide everything we need.

The True Christ Power, Part 2 of 9 Helsinki, Finland

Everything when we can use in abundance, we feel free and we feel very, very happy. Similarly, if we can make use of the blessing of God, which is inside us, then we will feel very, very free.(Beloved Master Ching Hai, Beloved Supreme Master Ching Hai, beloved audience and all disciples of Master, welcome to this Cultural House of Helsinki on this sunny Sunday afternoon to meet our beloved Teacher, the highest Master, Master Ching Hai. We initiates of Finland have been sincerely praying already for a long, long time that our Master would visit here one day. And in this northern country, it's very far away, and She is very busy; we know that very well. Today, that deep wish of many hearts has become true; and today is also a very big day in this country, Finland, for countless families, as it is Mother's Day here. Respected ladies and gentlemen, in front of you now sits the highest Master, Master Ching Hai. And those who have any gifts or flowers to bring to Her, please feel free to do that now and put them beside Her. So, one more applause to Master Ching Hai, please. Welcome. The next program, after Master has received some gifts from our disciples and visitors, is that we are all very excited to hear Master’s lecture.)Thank you very much. (I repeat once more in Finnish, if somebody has flowers or some small gifts for Master, you are welcome to give them.) Here. Come here, come here. Want some candy? OK. Hey! You also want? You’re so big. Thank you. Wow.Thank you so much for your love. I’ll give you the flowers later. It’s very difficult to hear from here. Can you hear very clearly over there? (Yes.) Yes? (Does it sound better now if I speak closer?) They understand English, wonderful people. (Yes.) (So, thank You for pointing that out. So now it’s Master’s turn to start speaking, and… yes.) Thank you, thank you. Thank you, a good, beautiful evening to you. How are you? How is everybody? It is like spring in your country. (It is spring here in Finland at the moment.) Ah, yes. Some technical problem. In Finland, it is springtime now? Or summer? Summer. But it seems like spring to me because yesterday, I walked through the park and near the lake, and it still feels a little like spring air, and also the new leaves have just begun to come out. The springtime always makes people feel good; makes me feel good. It feels like we should renew our life; we begin everything in the very, very enthusiastic spirit. I thank you for the Finland brothers and sisters who have invited me here repeatedly, and finally, I made it to your country. May God bless you and your country so much, in this new, coming year and the new-coming era because your people deserve it so much, the very fine, very gentle race of people. In just the short time that I have arrived here until now, I have met only kindness and love everywhere – on the street, in the store, in the taxi, in the train station, everywhere. The country is so fresh, the air so clean, everything feels so pleasant to the heart. Even the water from the tap, you can drink – so clean. Nowadays… Is that true? Can drink, huh? Because I drank it – I have drunk it this morning. I hope it's OK. Because I asked the people if I could drink some water directly. They said, “Yes, yes,” and I was so happy, and I drank it right away.For me, the water in the land, if you can drink directly from the tap, is a great blessing, because it feels abundant, feels like you can drink forever and you don't have to worry. Nowadays, not every country's water you can drink. Many countries’ water is very contaminated, and you have to limit yourself to small bottles, and I feel very restricted. The hearing is OK still, huh? Give me a sign if you cannot hear. Good. All right. Everything when we can use in abundance, we feel free and we feel very, very happy. Similarly, if we can make use of the blessing of God, which is inside us, then we will feel very, very free. Then we don't even have to pray for God's blessing. It will always be there automatically. And that's what I want to talk to you about, the freedom – the freedom that is not known on this planet unless we know God, unless we know the freedom inside, the bliss, the blessing inside. It is lucky that we live in a free country such as Finland. And then, we can even sit together and talk about the greater freedom of Heaven, which we can attain right now, while we are still working in this physical life. This freedom… oh, my God! This freedom is the greatest possession, is the greatest merit, the greatest treasure that we can ever wish to have.

The True Christ Power, Part 1 of 9 Helsinki, Finland

“I have practiced already six years the Quan Yin Method with the help of Supreme Master Ching Hai. I do it with all my heart and I pray, that Master Ching Hai will help me and give me peace. As a child I was very weak. When I was ten years old I went with my mother and other charitable people to visit a military hospital to see the wounded and give presents. I noticed how many wounded boys were there, their age around 18 and 20 years old. Some boys had lost their arm, some had their leg cut off. One youngster had lost his sight and an elderly person sat by his side and tried to feed this young blind man.”“I felt enormous sadness and pain as I watched these people wounded in the war. Then I asked myself: life and humanity, what is it about? Why are these young people suffering and why do we wage war with each other?” “I concluded that I had to pray silently inside: from whom or where could I get instruction and support for spiritual peace on the walk of life, because I really needed it. Suddenly, fate brought this gift to my life, as a friend told me that an older woman, a preacher, lives in America. She donates sample booklets and videos with lectures. I asked for a sample booklet to read and I was fascinated by it, with every sentence, every page. It was easy for me to understand it, just like a friend was telling me about the meaning of life.”“Then I decided to become a disciple of Master Ching Hai. Two months later, I was initiated in Germany. When I returned home, it was easier for me to meditate and to eat pure plant-based food.”“My experiences from the initiation: I saw the (inner Heavenly) Light and heard the (inner Heavenly) Sounds very clearly. At the group meditation, I also saw the (inner Heavenly) Light and heard the (inner Heavenly) Sounds and after the group meditation I noticed how great, happy and wonderful I felt. Sometimes in meditation, I felt emptiness, then again, I felt better inside.”“Each day of my life, when I have difficulties, I pray inside that Master will give me strength and courage, and those I have always received.”

The Spoken Word: Selections from “The Pathway of Life” by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Volume 2, Part 2 of 2

“‘Judge not, that ye be not judged.’ ‘For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged, and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.’ ‘And why behold thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but consider not the beam that is in thine own eye?’”“Almost invariably, if we search within, we find the same sin that we condemn in others. And if we do not know in ourselves the very sin which we condemn in others, with a little search we shall find a worse sin. The moment you begin to judge a man, bear in mind not to say anything evil even if you know this evil thing for a certainty, but particularly if you are not certain of it and merely repeat the words of another. Judging others is always inaccurate because no one knows what has occurred and is occurring in the soul of him who is being judged.”“To condemn people to their face is evil because it offends them, and to condemn them behind their back is dishonest because it deceives them. The best thing is not to seek anything evil in people and to forget it, but to seek the evil in our own self and to remember it.” “The less people know of the evil acts of others, the stricter they are with themselves. Never listen to a man who speaks evil of others and well of yourself. He who traduces me behind my back fears me, he who praises me to my own face despises me.” “We know that a loaded gun must be handled carefully, but we refuse to realize that a word must be handled with as much care. A word may not only kill but also cause evil that is worse than death.” “To speak evil of others harms three people in one: him of whom evil is spoken; him to whom evil is spoken; but most of all him who speaks evil of others. Judging people behind their back is harmful especially for the reason that the criticism of the defects of a man, which related to him face to face might be useful to him, is hidden from him to whom it might do good and is communicated to those to whom it can only do harm by arousing a feeling of ill will towards him who is judged.”

The Spoken Word: Selections from “The Pathway of Life” by Leo Tolstoy (vegetarian): Volume 2, Part 1 of 2

The renowned 19th-century Russian author suggested that we ask ourselves what God really wants us to do. In addition to his renowned epic novels, Leo Tolstoy wrote essays and letters that conveyed the spiritual truths he came to realize in life. Along with adopting and promoting the vegetarian diet, he became deeply interested in spirituality and living by the ethical teachings of Christ. Supreme Master Ching Hai spoke about the uplifting nature of Leo Tolstoy’s work during a group meditation session with our Association members in July 1997, in Los Angeles, USA. “Because Tolstoy was a practitioner. That's why when you read his stories, most stories are about spiritual things, about God, and very happy and very positive. It's very good to read him, to read his books. You try. If you haven't, you try. You can read more. Such thing is very good for you.” We would like to share with you an insightful excerpt from Volume 2 of “The Pathway of Life,” called “The Spoken Word.” “By a word we can bring people into union, by a word we can sever their union; by a word we can serve love, and likewise by a word we can serve enmity and hatred. Beware of the word that separates people or serves enmity and hatred.”“Man is the carrier of God. He can express the consciousness of his divinity by a word. How then should he not be careful in the use of a word?”“If you would pass as well informed — learn to question rationally, to listen attentively, to answer calmly, and to cease speaking when there is nothing left to say.” “While wise men teach us that silence is useful, free speech is likewise needful, only at the proper time. We sin by words both if we are silent when we ought to speak, and if we speak when we ought to be silent.”“If you know how people should live and mean well with them, you will tell them. And you will do so in such a manner that they trust your words. In order that they may trust you and understand you, you must express your thoughts without irritation or anger, but calmly and kindly.”

The Power of God’s Name is infinite - Selections from “The Divine Life” by Sri Swami Ramdas (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

The Power of God’s Name is infinite - Selections from “The Divine Life” by Sri Swami Ramdas (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

Following a retreat, Sri Swami Ramdas realized that the manifestation of Ram, or Beloved God, is everywhere, within and without. POWER OF THE NAME “The only precious thing in this world, by the possession of which we could attain an exalted state of pure peace and joy, is the Name of the Lord. Its melodious sound, coupled with the pure consciousness of the one Reality which it signifies, frees the mind from all its passions, permitting the outflow of the eternal joy inherent in the human soul. The Divine Name is a powerful boat that takes man across the whirlpools of life to the haven of his eternal and spiritual nature. His Name transforms man from the human to the Divine. The Divine Name is the one sovereign panacea for all the physical, mental and intellectual ills that have created the sense of diversity and misery in the world. The sweet note that rings out of the Name lulls and grants repose to the troubled spirit of man.” “God is a supreme Power who always works with a heart filled with infinite love and compassion. All activities in the world proceed from such a heart. But man in his ignorance misconstrues the workings of the Divine will and, instead of submitting to it, revolts and strives against it, and thus becomes miserable. Submission to God's will and a cheerful attitude towards all circumstances of life, and to be engaged in a blissful and selfless activity, can be possible only when man is in intimate communion and oneness with Him who is love and goodness.” WONDROUS NAME “There is no word in the human tongue which wields such a marvelous power, that mysteriously works for absolute good, as the Name which stands for God, The Name of the Lord is the very expression of God as a mystic sound. To attune the mind to the sweet melody of the Name is to harmonize your life with the Life eternal. The music of the Name brings about the union of the individual soul with the universal Soul. When the soul loses itself in the thrills generated by the Name, it attains a state of ineffable ecstasy in which all forms and lives are seen as the manifestation of the one supreme essence of Truth. The Name expands the narrow vision of the individual into a vision of infinite value and grandeur.”

The Power of God’s Name is infinite - Selections from “The Divine Life” by Sri Swami Ramdas (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

Sri Swami Ramdas was born in Kanhangad, India. As a young man, he understood that the only way to eternal peace is through the Divine path of oneness with the Supreme Being. He thus began to devote his life solely to God. Sri Swami Ramdas’ book, “The Divine Life,” is a compilation of more than 200 essays. We will now share with you selections from “The Divine Life” by Sri Swami Ramdas. DIVINE THOUGHT “In order to attain to the supreme blessedness of life, namely the realization of God, we have to surcharge our thought with the idea of God. God must take possession of our mind until our mind is no longer there as such, and God alone is. Until this is done the aspirant must employ every means possible to control the mind and its activities so that the thought of God alone should rule in it. This thought must sink deep into the mind, transforming its fickle, restless and impure nature into the very Spirit of joy, purity and peace.” “Saints are truly the redeemers of fallen souls. It is by their power alone the mind that runs in pursuit of transient pleasures can be made to concentrate its attention upon the eternal, changeless and blissful indwelling Reality. When thus the mind is permeated through and through with the imperishable idea of God, man attains the supreme goal of life.” DIVINE NAME “The difficulty that confronts the devotee in his path to this supreme goal of life is the restless nature of his mind. A mind purified and concentrated upon the great ideal enables the devotee to realize his oneness and union with Him, and get the vision of Him in all beings, creatures and things. God-realization is only for him who has so controlled his mind as to subdue the desires relating to the objects of the senses. Now what is the unfailing, easy and most potent practice by which the unruly mind can be brought under subjection? This is the singing of God's hallowed Name.” “What is required first is an absolute faith in the greatness and potency of the Name. Given this faith, which comes only by the grace of the Lord, the devotee swiftly reaches His all-merciful feet.”

The Lord’s Divine Love and Wisdom: From Divine Providence by Emanuel Swedenborg (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

12:33

The Lord’s Divine Love and Wisdom: From Divine Providence by Emanuel Swedenborg (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

Let’s continue with excerpts from, “Divine Providence,” where more fascinating insight is provided by Emanuel Swedenborg as to the connectiveness of Divine Love and Wisdom in the Heavens as well as our physical world.“Everything we see with our eyes in this world is this kind of whole, and so is everything we do not see with our eyes, either in the depths of nature or in the spiritual world. An individual is this kind of whole, and so is a human community. Further, the Church is this kind of whole, and so is the whole angelic heaven in the Lord’s sight. In short, the created universe is this kind of whole not only in its entirety but also in every detail. If the whole and every part is to be a form, it is necessary that the one who created them all should be form itself and that all the things that have been created in their particular forms should come from that essential form. Divine Love and Wisdom are form in and of themselves, and are therefore wholly ‘itself’ and unique. Divine Love and Divine Wisdom are a single whole in the Lord. They emanate from the Lord as a single whole.”“There is some image of this unity in everything that has been created. Divinity is present in everything that has been created because God the Creator, who is the Lord from eternity, brought forth the sun of the spiritual world from His actual Self, and by means of that sun brought forth the whole universe.”“In the Lord, then, there is Divine Love and Wisdom; in the sun that comes from Him there is divine fire and divine radiance; and from that sun come spiritual warmth and spiritual light, with the two making a single whole. It follows, then, that some image of this whole is present in everything that has been created.” “The truth is, though, that the simpler and purer anything is, the greater and fuller it is. This is why the more deeply we look into anything, the more amazing, perfect, and beautiful are the things we see; so, in the first substance of all, there must be the most amazing, perfect, and beautiful things of all. This is because the first substance comes from the spiritual sun, which is from the Lord and is where the Lord is. That sun itself is therefore the only substance, and since it is not in space, it is totally present in everything, in the largest and the smallest components of the created universe.”

The Lord’s Divine Love and Wisdom: From Divine Providence by Emanuel Swedenborg (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

12:20

The Lord’s Divine Love and Wisdom: From Divine Providence by Emanuel Swedenborg (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

In the 18th century, a great Swedish scientist and inventor, at the height of his career, began to see visions of Heaven, spirits, saints, and angels. He saw Lord Jesus come to open his inner eye, which allowed him to travel in the celestial sphere and talk with different spiritual beings. This mystical experience transformed the scientist into an enlightened spiritual leader with a new understanding of Christianity. His name is Emanuel Swedenborg. From 1744 onwards, Emanuel Swedenborg spent over a decade of his life writing down what he saw in his spiritual voyages in more than two dozen books. Today, we are pleased to present excerpts from “Divine Providence,” wherein, Emanuel Swedenborg explains how everything in this Universe is connected through Divine Love and Wisdom“The universe as a whole and in every detail was created out of Divine Love, by means of Divine Wisdom. The Lord from eternity, who is Jehovah, is essentially Divine Love and Wisdom, and that He himself created the universe and everything in it out of Himself. It then follows that the universe and everything in it was created out of Divine Love by means of Divine Wisdom. Love cannot do anything apart from wisdom and that wisdom cannot do anything apart from love. Love without wisdom cannot think anything. It cannot actually see, feel, or say anything. This means that love apart from wisdom cannot do anything. By the same token, wisdom apart from love cannot think anything, see or sense anything, or even say anything. This means that wisdom apart from love cannot do anything.” “A force is instilled into everything that has been created. However, the force does not do anything on its own; it depends on the one who instilled it.”“Divine Love and Wisdom radiate from the Lord as a single whole. In the Lord, reality and its manifestation are both distinguishable and united. Divine Love is a property of Divine Wisdom, and Divine Wisdom is a property of Divine Love. Unless it is married to wisdom, love cannot accomplish anything. Love or volition does not do anything without wisdom or discernment. As spiritual warmth and light radiate from the Lord as the sun, they make a unity, the way Divine Love and Divine Wisdom make a single whole in the Lord.”

Silence, Solitude and Wisdom: From Thoughts in Solitude by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

13:32

Silence, Solitude and Wisdom: From Thoughts in Solitude by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 2 of 2

Let us continue with excerpts from Thomas Merton’s book, “Thoughts in Solitude.” Where the Reverend teaches us to enhance our connection with God through silence and solitude. “Actual solitude has, as one of its integral elements, the dissatisfaction, and uncertainty that come from being face to face with an unrealized possibility. It is not a mad pursuit of possibilities— it is the humble acquiescence that stabilizes us in the presence of one enormous reality which is in one sense already possessed and in another a ‘possibility’— an object of hope. It is only when the solitary dies and goes to Heaven that he sees clearly that this possibility was already actualized in his life and he did not know it— for his solitude consisted above all in the ‘possible’ possession of God, and of nothing else but God, in pure hope.” “Solitude has to be objective and concrete. It has to be a communion in something greater than the world, as great as Being itself, in order that in its deep peace we may find God. We put words between ourselves and things. Even God has become another conceptual unreality in a no-man’s-land of language that no longer serves as a means of communion with reality.” “When we have lived long enough alone with the reality around us, our veneration will learn how to bring forth a few good words about it from the silence which is the mother of Truth. Words stand between silence and silence: between the silence of things and the silence of our own being. Between the silence of the world and the silence of God. When we have really met and known the world in silence, words do not separate us from the world nor from other men, nor from God, nor from ourselves because we no longer trust entirely in language to contain reality. Truth rises from the silence of being to the quiet tremendous presence of the Word. Then, sinking again into silence, the truth of words bears us down into the silence of God. Or rather God rises up out of the sea like a treasure in the waves, and when language recedes His brightness remains on the shores of our own being.”

Silence, Solitude and Wisdom: From Thoughts in Solitude by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

14:21

Silence, Solitude and Wisdom: From Thoughts in Solitude by the Reverend Thomas Merton (vegetarian), Part 1 of 2

The Reverend Thomas Merton, an important Catholic mystic and spiritual thinker, was born in 1915, to a New Zealand father and an American mother. The many life situations he encountered in his youth led him to explore religion and spirituality and eventually to devote his life to God by becoming a monk, and later a deacon, at the Abbey of Gethsemani, a part of the Order of Trappists, in Kentucky, USA. Believing in the equality of all religions, Thomas Merton became deeply interested in Eastern traditions in the later years of his life. He also held lively discourses with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. Today we will present excerpts from Thomas Merton’s book, “Thoughts in Solitude.”“It is necessary to name Him Whose silence I share and worship, for in His silence He also speaks my own name. He alone knows my name, in which I also know His name. For in the instant in which He calls me ‘my son’ I am aware of Him as ‘my Father.’ This recognition is, in me, an act, in Him a Person. The act in me is the movement of His Person, His Spirit, His Love, within me.” “To fear God is the fulness of wisdom, and fullness is from the fruits thereof… The fear of the Lord is a crown of wisdom, filling up peace and the fruit of salvation… Son, if thou desire wisdom, keep justice, and God will give her to thee…”“In the depths of our being is God Who commands us to live and to be. But we do not find Him merely by finding our own being.” “Thus, in the depths of our being He has placed the light of conscience which tells us the law of life. Life is not life unless it conforms to this law which is the will of God. To live by this light is all of man, for thus man comes to live in God and by God.” “Hence the beginning of wisdom is the confession of sin. This confession gains for us the mercy of God. It makes the light of His truth shine in our conscience, without which we cannot avoid sin. It brings the strength of His grace into our souls, binding the action of our wills to the truth in our intelligence.”
