This book is a compilation of original quotes sampled from numerous lectures, interviews
and informal talks given by Supreme Master Ching Hai. Excerpts from oral teachings were
gathered over the course of several years by one of the fellow disciples. What began as a
sampling of her own favorite quotes given by the Master, soon became a voluminous
collection of material. 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 multicultural
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

Everything is like muscles – needs exercise. Even noble ideas must be exercised often in

order for them to grow and stay firm and stable. Everything is an exercise. For example,

before you didn't know how to meditate. You could not believe that you could sit there two

or three hours doing nothing. You got itchy here and there. But now you've gotten used to

it. You derive benefits from it, so you like to do it more. It's a kind of exercise. Just like

people when they workout every week, maybe everyday or twice or three times a week,

their muscles develop. If muscles, the material things, can develop, how much more the

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

subtle things, like ideas and thoughts. So, the more we develop our noble ideas, the

quicker they grow and the more stable they are planted in our subconscious. And we just

carry on this way and the ‘muscles’ of nobility and high ideals will continue to stay that

way, keep healthy all the time or develop even more. The Mr. Universes are not born with

muscles like that, it's the result of many years of hard work. One bit after another until they

have fully developed. Similarly, don't sit there and think that you'll become noble. You must

exercise, do something. Don't sit there and think that you can do anything you want any
minute of your life, and that will actualize into reality. No, you must do it to prove it to

yourself and to build the ‘muscle’ of actualizing your own idea and nobility. Don't just sit

there and think that you are noble, you are okay – do something to prove it. Then you can

tell yourself: ‘Oh yes, I really am courageous, I really am noble. I really can do what I want

any minute of my life. If it benefits other people, I really can put down my selfish desires,’

or things like that. Do something. Actions speak louder than words. Everyone knows. Ah!

Just talk! That's why I became Master and you are students; because you talk, you think,

but you don't do anything. That's the difference between us, nothing else. You have the

same brain, same Buddha power, same God, same Mother / Father, same freedom to

move, same body – some are bigger – same will-power, except I exercise my will-power's

‘muscle’ and you just sit there and read books about exercising or look at the

advertisement of the muscle-building machine but don't move. I have a lot of muscle-

building apparatus in my house, but I never touch them. Having muscle-building apparatus

in your home doesn't help anything; never mind, just looking at a picture, thinking about it,

or imagining, ‘Yeah, yeah. It will do me good.’ It will, but it doesn't. It will, but I don't know

when.

So, everything must be exercised, must put words into action, must put the ideas into

realization. Just dreaming about work doesn't bring you money. Same with ideas, noble

purposes, morality, anything. Anything must be practiced everyday. Why do we spend a lot

of time exercising muscles and things like that, and we don't spend more time exercising

our noble ideas? The latter is even more important.
