  • Summary

Everything originates from the Sound. The Sound is God or the Buddha Nature. God is the highest level and the highest ideal. Hes represents the highest thought or concept, and is called Anuttara-Samyak-Sambodhi or the Buddha Nature in Buddhism. The Sound or Buddha Nature is eternal. Whether we become humans or animals, the Sound is forever within us and we can use it as long as we’re in a human body.

Actually, the Sound is not sound. It’s a kind of subtle, rhythmic light or sound combined with light. The more we practice the Quan Yin Method, the more we’ll come to understand its nature. After we begin practicing, even though we only observe the Sound, we can understand everything and even transform ourselves into anything we want. Sometimes we may see Master appear in the form of Quan Yin Bodhisattva, Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, Mahasthamaprapta Bodhisattva, Shakyamuni Buddha, etc. All these forms are actually transformations of the Sound, the power of God, the power of Buddha, or the greatest Teacher. Everything in the universe comes from Hirm. Hes transforms into a physical body, into millions of billions of bodies, and into Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the past, present, and future in ten directions.


Highlights
  1. Why does Master often quote from and make comparisons with teachings in the world's scriptures during her lectures?
  2. According to the Bible, the Sound is God. If this Sound is within us, does this mean that we're originally God?
  3. Shakyamuni Buddha said that all beings have the Buddha Nature, so why can only humans become Buddhas in one lifetime?
  4. Why is the Sound called the "Buddha Nature"? What is the Buddha Nature?
  5. Does Amitabha's infinite light also originate from this Sound? Why do we say that we practice "Quan Yin"(observing the Sound) instead of "Ting Yin"(listening to the Sound)?
  6. How do we find our Original Nature? Why do we need to go beyond the level of sound and form in our spiritual practice to find the real Buddha?
  7. Why should we avoid searching on the outside in our spiritual practice? How do we find a real living Master?
  8. What makes human beings noble? Why is it that only the most blessed people can practice the Quan Yin Method?
  9. Is the Quan Yin Method the only way to attain the highest spiritual status? Why was Ananda unable to attain Buddhahood even though he was close to Buddha every day?
