Heaven Testimonies, Part 18 — Amitabha’s Western Paradise or “Extreme Bliss Pure Land”

Master once told us that following Master to practice meditation is “we die every day while alive,” meaning our soul consciousness can come and go between Heaven and Earth without having to wait for this physical body to actually die.

I had the honor to visit the Amitabha’s Western Paradise or “Extreme Bliss Pure Land” a few times during my meditation even though I’m not practicing the “Pure Land Buddhism,” but the “Quan Yin Method” that Supreme Master Ching Hai has imparted to me, which enables me to tour the Western Paradise while living. That’s why the “Quan Yin Method” is a complete and perfect method, the ultimate of all spiritual practicing methods.

I saw that the Western Paradise was exactly the same as described in the Buddhist Sutra: the ground paved with gold and the palaces made with soft and elastic gold, looking transparent and shining with golden light. Pillars inside and outside of the palaces were all inlaid with gemstones of seven or nine colors. Everything there was composed of light. The radiant buildings there were like those ancient buildings on Earth, including gorgeous Buddhist style, Islamic style, or elegant Catholic style, as all buildings here on Earth are imitations of those in Heaven. The buildings in Heaven were truly so beautiful that no worldly language can describe them. The palaces all had their own consciousness, like living creatures that we can communicate with. Even though they apparently had doors, but we could just get in without having to pass through any door or any obstruction.

The colors of flowers and plants there were especially transparent and bright and they can all sing. The trees there were also glittering with light and radiating a kind of subtle vibration, as if singing. The light there was so strong that I couldn’t distinguish between trees, flowers, or plants in the beginning. Even animal-people there were all sparkling. The mountains there were also green and very radiant and vivid in color.

I first visited the lower level of the Western Paradise, which was either for people who had meritorious rewards while living on Earth or had chanted the name of “Amitabha Buddha” and had less karma. After arriving there, they had to first clean their contaminated parts after living in the big dyeing tank of Earth, and then gradually rise up to the middle level after being thoroughly cleansed.

In the middle level were those who had practiced spiritually and meditated more but still had lots of distractive thoughts. I saw some of them still missing their previous worldly pleasures; for example, whatever they wanted to eat would appear for them to enjoy instantly, and whatever they desired would instantly be created just by their thinking.

One thing worth noticing was that I saw some monks and nuns who had practiced the Pure Land Buddhism and kept the precepts rather strictly. They were reborn into the low or middle level there and regretted that they hadn’t practiced well while in their human bodies; they wanted to practice diligently after going there.

Therefore, in each level of the “Extreme Bliss Pure Land” there’re Buddhas or Bodhisattvas mercifully giving lectures. When Quan Yin Bodhisattva lectured there, all beings would miraculously transform into teenage girls to listen to the lecture, wearing exactly the same clothes. Then Quan Yin Bodhisattva would give a lecture through vibration which the whole audience could understand.

I also saw that when Amitabha Buddha went there to lecture, every being would miraculously turn into young boys to listen to the lecture, and Amitabha Buddha also used vibration instead of language to let everyone understand. After the lecture, everyone would return to their own original clothing, which to me was so interesting! I also joined them to listen to the lecture.

Over there, every being had a “home” – a “lotus flower.” They would meditate, practice spiritually, and recite sutras, and so on in one’s own lotus. One lotus there is bigger than our Earth, because one eye of Amitabha Buddha alone is already as immense as the Universe. Therefore, beings in the Western Paradise were correspondingly very, very big, unlike us earthly humans who are so small. Even though it is the Buddha’s world, if beings there don’t practice well, their lotus flowers would wither and lose light; they cannot cheat.

The sutra described the well-known “Eight Merit Water” in the Western Paradise. I saw that it was transparent water which is extraordinarily “pure, cool, sweet, soft, moisturizing, calming, thirst-quenching, and nourishing all qualities.” Beings could go there to wash whatever dirty stuff is attached to their souls and then return to their house – the lotus flower – to continue practicing meditation.

There’s only happiness in the Western Paradise, no suffering or vexation, that’s why it’s named “Extreme Bliss Pure Land.” Almost all the residents in the top level of the Western Paradise were Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, where They study laws and mysteries of the Universe and prepare to liberate beings, in anticipation of becoming Buddhas or Bodhisattvas of even higher levels, which is the goal They are striving for while living there.

After visiting the “Extreme Bliss Pure Land” a few times, my realization is: while still in this human body, we should endeavor to be vegan, practice spiritually, lead a virtuous and loving lifestyle, and diligently practice the “Quan Yin Method,” which is the highest. Then, we don’t need to wait until we die to travel to various high Heavens with our consciousness. Heavens welcome spiritual practitioners like you and me.

Master has prepared the “New Paradise,” an incredible Heaven that is even more extraordinary and magnificent, for good disciples and good people. Thank You, Master! It is difficult to repay Your Grace. I can only kowtow to You three times from here. Respectfully, Ji-Guang from China

Each of Master’s disciples has similar, different or more inner spiritual experiences and/or outer world blessings; these are just some samples. Usually we keep them to ourselves, as per Master’s advice.
