In this lecture the Supreme Master Ching Hai talks about the benefits of spiritual practice and how to overcome war and suffering. Here Master speaks about the potential war has to inspire people to seek God and peace. Master says: "Because after disaster, we tend to become more spiritual. It is sad, but at least in the thorny bush, we have roses. Similarly, in the late event, we have like war in Kosovo. And people tend to become closer together, more loving, more giving, more understanding. Also they have more penchant for God's knowledge and this is a very positive side. Despite the very, very sad news that we hear every day. But we hope that the peace is coming.''
Master goes on to explain the importance of compassion and the vegetarian diet. She says: "It is important because we and all lives on this planet are linked together by an invisible chain. And if one piece of the chain is broken, things go wrong. And because it is invisible, we do not know. Otherwise, how do we explain all these disasters, all the killings, all the wars on this planet? When you go inside and meditate on God, Hes will show you that compassion is very important. And compassion extends to all beings as well, even animals."
