What is it like to be enlightened? Through reading the scriptures, we get to know what kind of experiences an enlightened person may have. So if we have the same kind of experience, then we are enlightened too. As I mentioned just now, according to what Buddha said in the Lotus Sutra, a non-regressing Bodhisattva, or a great saint, can hear a sound from the inside, not outside. If we can also hear this sound, it means that we are enlightened as well, at least to a certain degree. It's because this sound is originated from Buddha's land. So through this sound, we can go to Buddha's land.
This inspiring discourse was recorded during the early years before Supreme Master Ching Hai began to give public lectures. We offer to all truth-seekers who can appreciate this sharing with sincerity, although the quality of recording was less than perfection due to limited preparation and lack of advanced equipment at that time. Please pardon us for imperfect audio quality at times.
