Every human being has, at one time or another, wondered about the deeper meaning of
his or her life. We witness on a daily basis the suffering caused by our ignorance, often
feeling helpless to change it. But we are also blessed with brief glimpses of deep insight
and joy which bring temporary comfort and hope to our lost souls. Regardless of the tides
and turns of our lives, the recurring questions still remain, ‘Where do I come from? What is
the purpose of my life? What am I here for? And where am I going after I die?’ Should we
search for answers to these questions, we would open the door to a multitude of
philosophies and practices, some safer than others, some quicker than others, yet not an
easy choice for anyone to make.
Searching alone may seem like wandering in a maze, not knowing what turn to take next.
Countless road signs may seem to point in different directions, leaving us confused and
constantly searching outside of ourselves. We seek relief from an undefined longing, a
void which lays buried behind the distractions of our lives. But the day we find ourselves in
the presence of a true spiritual Master, we know that the search has come to an end, for
this living Teacher proves to us that complete liberation and self-mastery is possible in this
lifetime and we only need to claim it, for it is ours.
When we take away all that divides us from the world around us, we find that only love
remains, and this is our true essence. Once a living Master introduces us to our own
divinity, all of our previous illusions of self identity begin to fall away and instead of having
to learn more, we begin to unlearn, to let go of useless, negative habits and ways of
thinking. Our path is now set before us on our journey back Home.
When a traveler is lost, he must find a higher vantage point in order to obtain a better view.
The higher he goes, the wider and clearer his vision becomes. Soon, the ominous dark
shadows that once petrified him are discovered to be only mere shrubs in the wilderness!
Likewise, the higher we go on our inward journey, the more our fears and false limitations
are revealed to us. We learn to see them for what they are and let go of them just as we
would discard an old worn-out garment. As we shed the outer appearance of ourselves,
we no longer see separation and we feel united with everyone. The color of our skin and
the language we speak may vary, but our innermost fears and aspirations are identical. So
as we get to know our true selves, we gain comfort and understanding both within and far
beyond ourselves.
If you feel that you are ready to embark upon such a journey, this book should provide you
with priceless guidance and blessings, much needed in our present times. Supreme
Master Ching Hai addresses in a very specific way some of the most frequently asked
questions posed by seekers around the world. She clarifies often misunderstood concepts
without oversimplifying them. This collection of Her teachings is very much like a practical
guide to your own treasure hunt. It will provide you with an overall map, warning you of
obstacles ahead, teaching you how to prepare yourself. With Master Ching Hai by your
side, you will surely find your way Home.

All the Masters in the past, present or future will try to demonstrate to us the good qualities
of a true human being. They try to teach by example not only by talking, and they try to
teach us to always be loving, tolerant and always put other people's advantage before our
own benefit. That's why when Shakyamuni Buddha was a king, even though He had the
highest position in the society, the most respected position, and He had the most power in
the country, and He commanded the loving heart of all His subjects, He still sacrificed all
this to preserve the lives and peace for His people in His country. Not only for His country
alone but also for the uncle's country, because if the two countries fought each other then
both countries would have damage in people's properties and lives. That's why He tried to
avoid it, avoid the war, not that He was afraid of the other country.

Some people always ask me, the Au Lac people, they ask me whether I should fight the
communists or I am pro-communist. They think because I help the Au Lac refugees, I
should hate the communists and go over there and kill them, get the gun and shoot them. I
tell them I help the refugees because they need help, because some of them are afraid to
go back home (go back to Au Lac) so they commit suicide. They die in here and Hong
Kong, et cetera. Because their lives are in danger, I have to help them.

But if I save some refugees' lives and go kill another person's life, then what is the
meaning? Also, if we make war in Au Lac then many people will die, the good people and
the bad people. And I say doesn't matter who dies, they are all brothers, same
countrymen.

So, I say to them doesn't matter how bad a government, sooner or later that government
will die, will change. The time will come. I think it's better to change people's hearts than to
kill them, and I am trying to change the people by teaching them good things, a moral
standard and teaching them to find their own wisdom. And if more Au Lac people are wise
and moral and good, then even bad government has to change into good government,
right? It is better than killing each other, because if you kill a person, his heart is not
changed. He will reincarnate again and make even more trouble for you, because he is
stronger in his determination. It's just like you put money in the bank, the longer the time
the more interest.

Supreme Master Ching Hai – Experience The Divine – Be Veg, Go Green, Save The Planet 491

The Quan Yin Method – The Key of Immediate Enlightenment and Eternal Liberation

So, most of the people do not know the best way of destroying the enemy. Just destroy
their evil hearts and then they'll be destroyed forever, not destroy their bodies. Besides,
sometimes we have made bad karma, good karma with each other. And they come back
to revenge and then we come back to revenge. It is always the devil's circle going on. So,
in this story the Shakyamuni Buddha wants to help us to understand, to be tolerant and to
sacrifice ourselves for the sake of other people; it's the best way.

In this respect, we can see that Jesus Christ was also Bodhisattva, a saint, very clearly.
Because many of His disciples wanted to go against the government and save Him, but
He said, ‘Don't do that.’ At that time, He had a lot of followers, many people believed Him,
many people could die for Him, but He did not use this power to make bloodshed.

Actually, everything will take care of itself in time. But meanwhile, we try our best to make
life better. But always try to avoid violence. That is the lesson of all these Shakyamuni
Buddha’s stories, that we have to surrender to God's will, to be tolerant and be patient.
When the time comes, everything will change.
