During a brief sojourn in Hong Kong, Supreme Master Ching Hai graciously met with Association Members. At the gathering, Master stated that she was very impressed with Hong Kong’s development despite the fact that it is a small and densely populated island. Master also praised the people of Hong Kong for their intelligence and kindness. Walking through the streets and getting in touch with the local people, Master shined her love on all corners of Hong Kong.
While speaking about animals and insects, Master shared that she is always concerned about them, wondering if they are safe, warm enough, or have enough food and water. One time Master reminded the assistant to not step on the grass and to walk carefully so as to avoid inadvertently stepping on little insects. The following day, a grasshopper mom came to thank Master for rescuing her babies the night before! Master also shared many personal stories to remind us to be careful and treat all beings with love.
Master has empathy for all beings’ situation in life. She treats every being around her with love. She worries if the dog would be all right if he has to take repeated injections, patiently listens to and answers the Association Members’ questions, and diligently meditates day and night to save the planet. The Supreme Master said, “I really love everything. I wish all of you would know this kind of love.” From this video, we get a glimpse of a Master’s immense love for all beings.
Master reminded disciples to do things legally and humbly. She said, “We can't do illegal things. The more they respect us, the more we have to be law-abiding and humble.”
At an Aulacese restaurant in Hong Kong, Master met its manager, who happened to have received help from Master when he was a little boy in a refugee camp, and he still remembered her. For a blind man who ran a little stand by himself, Master not only gave him encouragement, but also used it as an example to remind us to be independent and not to complain about our lot in life.
Wherever she is, Master always takes good care of the people’s needs first, and readily gives all to the needy and the less fortunate. Master told us stories that happened during her travels in Canada during one Christmas, what happened while on the airplane, and as she walked through the streets in Hong Kong; they were stories about how she had spread love quietly.
Our world is heavily polluted and the natural environment is poisoned by chemicals. Master revealed that humans actually could have lived longer, even hundreds or thousands years more, but our DNA has changed because of the external pollution, so we cannot live that long anymore. Master also shed some light on people currently living underground within the Earth.
There has long been free energy and free electricity, but why can’t these be revealed to the public or be used in our daily lives?
Why do we sometimes feel lonely and bored, even when everything is going smoothly in life? How can young practitioners maintain a balance between spiritual practice and mundane life?
The time we sleep can also influence our mood. Master said that when we sleep, we have no resistance; thus if the atmosphere of the world at the time is stuffy, we will be affected. How do we avoid this kind of negative influence?
Is the level of spiritual practice related to one’s inner visions? Will one see more inner visions the higher one’s level is?
Do we need to keep looking for other methods after practicing the Quan Yin Method? Master confirmed that the Quan Yin Method is the highest method. People who practice the Quan Yin Method are the most blessed.
During initiation, our souls are freed and liberated; that’s the most important. But sometimes our mind doesn’t listen to our soul, struggling and being uncooperative, or being affected by the world, therefore we become sick or encounter problems.
Since disciples asked so many different questions, Master commented that everyone has his/her own questions and always feels his/her own questions are the most important; therefore, we, as spiritual practitioners, should just meditate more, and we will receive the answers from within. Inner communication is the best. Sometimes we are tired or too busy, so our mind thinks a lot and is affected by the world around us. Therefore, we should recite the Holy Names all the time to protect ourselves.
