In speaking of God or the Supreme Spirit, Master instructs us to use
original non-sexist terms to avoid the argument about whether God is
a She or a He.
She + He = Hes (as in Bless)
Her + Him = Hirm (as in Firm)
Hers + His = Hiers (as in Dears)
Example: When God wishes, Hes makes things happen according to Hiers
will to suit Hirmself.

As a creator of artistic designs as well as a
spiritual teacher, Supreme Master Ching Hai loves all expressions of
inner beauty. It is for this reason that She refers to Vietnam as "Au
Lac" and Taiwan as "Formosa." Au Lac is the ancient name of Vietnam
and means "happiness." And the name Formosa, meaning "beautiful," reflects
more completely the beauty of the island and its people. Master feels
that using these names brings spiritual elevation and luck to the land
and its inhabitants.
