Supreme Master Ching Hai's Secrets to Effortless Spiritual Practice

Published by seegodwhileliving
This book is a compilation of original quotes sampled from numerous lectures and informal talks given by Supreme Master Ching Hai. With the help of many fellow disciples who transcribed and translated dozens of lectures, a book began to take form. Through dedicated patience, devotional love, help from fellow disciples and the grace of the Master, this work is now presented to you. The entire contents of this book are the original words of the Master, recorded verbatim. Editing has been done only on the order of quotes, and on the grammar and punctuation of the transcriptions themselves.

Through the spoken words, a living Master can bring ancient wisdom to life. To experience these discourses in person, the seeker is affected on all levels of understanding, beyond space and time, far beyond any mental concept. These types of Masters, having become fully conscious of their supreme nature within, offer a perfect mirror of the most noble and divine qualities within each of us, a reflection of our own potential for self-mastery. As one comes into contact with this perfect image, one’s life begins to turn away from fear and self-doubt and to move toward more tolerance and compassion, more hope and joy.

Such is the experience that countless hundreds, thousands, millions of people have had in the presence of Supreme Master Ching Hai. She speaks above and beyond general philosophy and theology, echoing the Truth, which lies directly in the hearts of all seekers. This kind of experience is beyond the words alone, but rather an invisible connection all of us share with the infinite. Through Her words, Her eyes and Her voice, one can obtain limitless blessing and inspiration. With Her help and the practice of the Quan Yin method of meditation, one can quickly progress along the path to full enlightenment.

Supreme Master Ching Hai is world-renowned for Her great wisdom, sense of humor, humility and deep compassion. She has traveled to all parts of the world dedicating Herself and Her time in order to teach others that the Truth we all seek is not far away. Her multi-cultural background (She is fluent in five languages English, German, Chinese, French and Aulacese) allows Her to express one ageless Truth in a multitude of ways, so that each individual receives his or her own answer, according to his or her own needs.

Through daily practice of a non-denominational meditation technique call the Quan Yin method (contemplation of the inner Sound stream); we can all attain understanding of the great joy, compassion and heavenly bliss described within religious and spiritual scriptures around the world. More than just a simple meditation technique, this living teaching brings to anyone who sincerely desires it the ability to carry the meditative state into all parts of their lives. It offers each of us a way to have true love and understanding for our fellow beings, to play our part in society while still keeping our mind clear of worry and attachment, and a way to find freedom here and beyond this world.

All of this, Master Ching Hai offers free of charge and conditions to anyone seeking the Truth. She does not personally accept any donations, all of Her public lectures are offered free of charge, and initiation into the Quan Yin method of meditation is given to anyone who is truly dedicated to their own spiritual development. Master says that a spiritual Teacher should never charge the student for what they already own. She simply opens the door to our own inner wisdom and then guides and protects us until we have fully realized our own treasure inside.

May the Truth guide you along the path to your own great awakening.

Secrets to Effortless Spiritual Practice
A collection of spiritual teachings by
Supreme Master Ching Hai
I do not belong to Buddhism or Catholicism.I belong to the Truth and I preach the Truth. Youmay call it Buddhism, Catholicism, Taoism, orwhatever you like. I welcome all! Since theancient time there is always a way to go back tothe kingdom of God, there is always a way to seeGod.The most important thing in this world, regardlessof our mission, is to love one another. You haveto have a mighty determination, like a lion. Youhave to have a very loving heart, so soft like afeather, that every little thing moves it. We haveto be like an audience. We have to be wiseenough, enlightened enough to watch all thegames of the universe, and get out of thesuffering.
 
Only if we find God will we find true happiness, truepeace, everlasting bliss, even in this life and the life after.There’s only one religion: The religion of God, of love andof understanding. There’s only one church, one temple:The temple of enlightenment. Come to that temple; thenwe’ll know all religions of the world.I dream that the whole world will become peaceful. Idream that all the killing will stop. I dream that all thechildren will walk in peace and harmony. I dream that allthe nations will shake hands with each other, protect eachother and help each other. I dream that our beautifulplanet will not be destroyed. It took billions of years toproduce this planet and it’s so beautiful, so wonderful. Idream it will continue, but in peace, beauty, and love.
