Elevation of the Soul
Supreme Master Ching
(Spoken in English with 23 choices of subtitles)
Learning to Live in Harmony
Group meditation at Florida Center,
USA, May 11, 2002
It has been said that Masterhood means selfless love.
As such, we will have a deeper realization of Master’s
love after listening to the story of how She saved a possum.
While commenting on how Her birds and dogs live together, sharing
everything with each other, Master laments that we humans take
a longer time to learn the way of love. This is a matter worthy
to ponder upon. Also, in different situations, how do we distinguish
whether it is negative thinking generated by the mind or an
intuition coming to warn about something? Master has these encouraging
words for fellow initiates: “Every Saint has a past. Now
we’re just working it out, so that everything happens
in dreams, so there’s no trace left from this karma and
so we can elevate ourselves.”

What Is the Purpose of
Becoming a Nun or Monk?
Group meditation at Hsihu, Formosa, December 25, 1988
What is the purpose of becoming a monastic practitioner?
Master explicitly elucidates this matter. Just as people join
the armed forces to serve their country, we become monastic
practitioners to serve humankind and the whole world. Extended
further, we become a Buddha for the sake of serving all of Creation
and the universe. Sometimes Buddhas, Saints and angels may put
trials and obstacles on our spiritual path. How do we overcome
them? Novices in spiritual practice may sometimes be skeptical,
frustrated or critical. Master reminds us to avoid this as much
as possible. After some time, perhaps two or three days, or
two or three years, our views will change completely.
