How to Pray
Meditation is the deepest
Meditation is the deepest prayer
through which you get anything you want. Anything that is good for
your spiritual and physical well being will automatically come your
way, whether you pray or don't pray for it. That's why the life of
a Quan Yin practitioner is full of contentment and satisfaction -
he wants nothing. The more he practices, the less he wants. The more
he practices, the less he prays. Seek you first the kingdom of God,
and all things shall be added unto you.
Is The Best Prayer
Only faith can bring the things into actualization, because actually
we are God. We are Buddha already. Help is always there. We don't
even need help. If we are the Buddha, we know what to do, no? So
believe it. If you cannot believe in your own Buddha Nature, then
believe in the Master power, the Master's Buddha Nature. Then that
will help you, because even if you didn't have a Buddha Nature,
supposed you didn't have, supposed you were not the Buddha, then
okay, at least someone else, like the Master, would not leave you
in trouble. The Master would immediately know, would know before
you even called, and would already have tried to find a way to help
you. So just believe in it. That's the best prayer for you. Believe
that it will be done as best for yourself, whatever happens it will
be the best for you and you will see it in the future, very soon,
that is the best.
any problem and you want to pray for yourself or want to pray for
anyone, just believe in it. You can ask Master to help or ask your
own Buddha Nature to help, but you must believe that it will be
done and it is being done, it has already been done. Then, it's
okay. Remember the Bible also says whatever you pray for, believe
that it has been granted to you, then it will be done. It's the
way it is. If you keep crying, "Oh, please help me! Why don't
you help me? It has been five minutes...it has been ten minutes.
I'll give you another ten minutes. (Master and audience laugh.)
That's not the way.
You must believe.
Your faith in yourself is the greatest healing power of any illness,
of any problems that you might encounter. You must believe this,
because you are the only Buddha within yourself. We are all the
Buddhas, but the Buddha inside knows what to do already. The soul
knows what to do. If you cannot believe, just believe the Master
power will help you, because it will. It does help anytime. What's
the use of having a master and then the master doesn't do anything
for you. Even an ordinary father, mother would try their best to
help their children; ordinary teachers would try their best to help
the students. How would a spiritual master, having access to all
heaven and earth, just leave you alone in darkness and in trouble?
nothing we cannot solve with faith in ourselves or in the Master
power, because actually the Master power is your power. You and
I are one. So, if you cannot believe in yourself, okay let it be,
because you feel separated from the Master, fine. Then believe in
the Master power. If you really think the master is good, why would
the master not help you? And the Master power is omnipresent; there's
nowhere the master is not. Anywhere you call, it's just the Master
right there, twenty-four hours, remember! So, everywhere you stay,
everywhere you live, whatever you face, don't panic, just believe.
It will be solved if you can't solve it yourself. Try your best.
If you cannot, then the Master will help you. That's what the Master's
there for. Until you find your own Master power, the one who knows
