Selected Questions and Answers
Q: How is it that You came to this knowledge?
M: I went to the Himalayas and found a teacher. It is not because the
only teachers are in Himalayas; I just happened to think that in the
Himalayas I could find some Masters because Jesus went there, Buddha
went there, etc. Now you can find Masters in other places as well. After
Jesus went to India for a while, during his missing thirteen years according
to history, and after the Buddha had been in the Himalayas for a while,
They also both had to go back to the world. People could see them on
the street or in the restaurant, so they didn't have to go to the Himalayas
like the Masters did.
Music with A Thousand Names
Q: My spiritual guide, Milarepa, advised me to
listen to the Music from the stars. How can I do that?
M: That is what I am going to show you. That's the silent sound, the
teaching of God, the "Word" in the Bible, "the music of stars." It is
called by different names. You can hear it right away. When I come in
and say just a few words, you will hear the Music of the stars that
is the teaching from God. That's why we call this Method "Immediate
Enlightenment." We help you open your heavenly ears, and then you can
hear the Music of the stars.
Q: We would like to hear what is the real content
of your Method because many of the things that You have mentioned, we
M: Well, if you want to know, you will have to stay a little longer
after this lecture. It's not really a written method; it is a reconnection
with the kingdom of God through a living pole. Like electricity, just
reconnect it, and then you'll get it. Even if I sit here and talk all
night long, until a hundred years, you still won't get the kingdom of
God. But we sit together and there's something going on invisibly, and
you will know.
The so-called "Method" is just that I tell you how to sit so that you
are more comfortable, how many hours a day you should communicate with
God, and some of these details. Actually, these are not the "Method".
The "Method" is not describable. It's not written, and if it were written,
it would not be the real thing. The real thing goes through a living
pole from God; it is transmitted from God through a chosen living pole,
something like that.
At the time of truly transmitting the so-called "Method", I don't talk.
You are right when you say that all the things I have told you, you
know already, because these are useless things - just conversation.
The real thing is transmitted in silence. When you are ready, it is
transmitted to you. Even though I am not here, if you want it, I can
transmit it to you - from America, from the moon, even - and all in
silence; that's the wonder of God.
Drugs Cannot Evoke Spiritual Experiences
Q: I had the experience of being one with the Totality.
It was due to the use of a special plant that grows in the Amazon forest.
Considering that it doesn't matter how you reach enlightenment and the
important thing is that you are enlightened, why don't people favor the
use of such plants, and even prohibit it?
M: It is because these are not real experiences. Any experience that
is evoked by material means is not spiritual. God is not made by man
or made by anything, neither is Hes evoked by anything. The God within
us will awaken Hirmself when Hes wants to. That is number one.
Number two: the natural spiritual awakening will not have any bad side-effects;
it will only make you happier, more intelligent, more contented, more
successful in many things, and more noble, more loving. And whatever
illusions come from plants or drugs will have terrible side effects.
They will make your body weak; they will make you addicted; they will
make you less intelligent; they will destroy your brainpower and your
physical well-being, etc. You know that better than I do.
You know how many people die every day because of drugs; how many people
live a life half dead and half suffering because they lack a drug after
they have become so addicted to it. You know the answer. That's why
it is better to refrain from these dangerous substances, for your own
sake as well as the people you love, and for the sake of a peaceful
society. Even cigarettes kill so many people every year. You read the
reports in the newspapers. So, it's not like you should have enlightenment
at any price. You should have the real thing and not the illusionary
The ABC's of the Highest Spiritual Practice
Q: I would like to be initiated but there are three
things that I don't understand in your Method as I read it: (A) You say
that we shouldn't practice any method of meditation that implies the control
M: These are not very favorable to spiritual development after a while.
As I have told you, everything that is evoked, controlled, or helped
by material things is not truly God. God doesn't need anything like
that to be awakened. God is already there, and God is God. Messing around
with our breathing, our heartbeat, or any mechanism in our body, is
sometimes extremely dangerous, also. God has created it the way it is,
and we should leave it alone.
Spiritual awakening does not depend on anything, not even the body,
because we are not the body to begin with. When we are unconscious,
when we are not breathing, or when we are dead, then how can we rely
on the breath to be awakened. We have to have the real Thing that is
always awake twenty-four hours after It has been awakened. That is why
I told you that to find God, you don't need to do anything. God is God.
Why do we have to do anything?
The true Method is silence, but in silence, we will know God. Not that
in silence, and then nothing. No, it's not that. God is God. There's
nothing we can do to know Hirm. Hes is just there. I will show you where
to look to reveal Hirm. This is why we advise you not to mix all these
kinds of material so-called "methods". If you feel that you are not
ready for this Supreme Power within yourself and you are not ready to
be a Supreme Master again yourself, then stay with any other method
you like. If you want to be the Supreme Master again, then forget all
these baby games.
Q: (B) You also say that we can't use our spiritual
power to cure others.
M: Yes, of course not, because they have the power within themselves.
While we are on the way to find God, we should just concentrate on God;
and once we know God already, our healing power is automatic. We have
no need to use any material gestures or actions in order to show someone
else that we are a genius, we are powerful, or we are better than he
is. In fact, we should be quiet about our power. That's why in the Bible
it is said that when you pray to the Father, be quiet; close yourself
in the closet. That means you do it quietly, secretly, and the Father
will reward you openly.
How does Hes reward you openly? You will be more successful, more intelligent,
more loving, more wise, more everything - and more God-like. And when
a God-like person walks on the street, His spiritual power naturally
heals whoever needs to be healed. Whoever has faith in God, whoever
has affinity with us, when we walk or go near that person, when we just
incidentally see that person, he will be healed, will be uplifted. But
that is by the will of God, not by the will of our hand or any of our
ego's so-called "healing actions". That's why when a woman touched the
dress of Jesus and was healed, when she thanked Him, He said, "Your
faith has healed you." He did not try to claim credit for the healing
power, but He knew that He had it. There are many things I could go
on and on about the Bible, but this is not a Bible session, so we will
stop it here.
Q: (C) And You also say that we can't combine other
methods with the Quan Yin. Does this mean that we must blindly follow
M: Actually we have already talked about that in part A. When you want
to be a doctor, you should not mess about with other work until you
finish your studies. When you want to learn medicine, you just concentrate
on learning medicine, and then you will become a doctor more quickly.
Even if another method is good, standing on two boats at the same time
is detrimental. You should do one thing at a time.
If you like other methods better, they suit you more, you are more
convinced, please be welcome to stay there and concentrate on that.
If you are convinced that our Method is good for you, suitable and the
best, come and concentrate on this; otherwise, you will not be successful
in either and at the end you don't know either one. You will lose your
time and lose both methods.
All these are just our best spiritual advice. It's not forbidden; it's
not an order from me or from any Master. It is just that we tell you
what we know is the best and quickest for you. We know that in everything
in which we want to be successful, we have to concentrate on that thing.
Even while you are driving a car, you cannot ride a bicycle, however
beautiful it is.
Q: Christ died and suffered for us. He shared all
our miseries, why aren't we happy?
M: Yes, good question. Jesus died for his disciples. The ones He initiated
directly benefited from His sacrifice. Those related to His disciples
benefited secondarily. The people in His time were somewhat elevated
from the darkness, to some degree. The people who saw him, touched him,
and contacted him, were uplifted to heaven and the whole planet profited
somewhat from His sacrifice after He left the Earth. That's why our
world is better than the way it was. The same is true for many other
Masters. Whatever they did, wherever they went, they benefited that
place. Time after time, they uplifted the planet into a more civilized
But personal enlightenment, we must have ourselves. Whatever Jesus
said is correct only for when He was alive and for His disciples. That's
why we must find our own Master inside, our own Christ within. We are
all children of God. If one person eats, the other cannot be filled;
we have to eat ourselves.
Playing the Eternal Game with God
Q: Once we have achieved our closeness to the Supreme
Being, are we ever going to separate again, like what happens to leaves
on the trees that fall and grow again?
M: Yes, we will, because that's the process of Creation; that's the
game we play with God. That is how the Creation exists. Otherwise, there's
just God, and no name, no form, no feeling, no stealing, no creation,
no black, no white, no good, no bad, no evil, no saint, nothing. But
we could also remain in God's abode forever. We could choose to do many
things if we want to; but most likely, we will choose to play the game
with Hirm again, like now. We will rest, and when we're bored, then
we will go out play the game again.
Heaven is not eternal. We will not want to stay in heaven eternally.
We will want to bring heaven anywhere to any level of existence, because
that's the way Creation is. That's the way God would like us to do,
and that's the way we will choose to do. Besides, after enlightenment
we will look down and see so many other brothers and sisters still suffering
in ignorance and still suffering in all kinds of lack of comfort due
to spiritual darkness, that we will willingly and lovingly come down
to assist them. That's how Creation continues.
Jesus did not come down for the first time or the last time. He said
he would come back again. He might already have, but how would we recognize
him? Would He necessarily grow a beard like last time? Would He necessarily
walk bare-feet like last time? Would He necessarily wear the ragged
clothes that He wore last time? No, He should not; He must not. If He
wears ragged, dirty clothes and walks barefoot in front of your door,
you would call the police. If Jesus came down now, He would have to
be good-looking, modernized, wealthy, healthy, traveling in a limousine
or Concord, etc; maybe wearing high heels. (I am just kidding.) And
He has to shave, (most people like a shaved man) - that is, if He came
back as a man at all. He might choose to incarnate in a lady's body
or in a body of a different nationality.
Besides, we only heard that He was a man. We don't even know; we were
not there. Did you see Him 2000 years ago yourself? Nowadays, we have
photography, and we still don't know who is real and who is fake. They
can use the computer to mess about with our appearance - put another
person's head on your body or put your body on other person's head to
create a different photo and different actions. How could we even prove
that Jesus looked like what or which?
Use Spiritual Power to Fight for World Peace
Q: What is Your opinion of the Third World War, of
UFOs, and of the climate change?
M: So many opinions you want me to have - even political! Do you guarantee
my safety if I say something about politics? (Laughter) They told me
that I am a spiritual teacher and that I should not talk about politics,
and now you get me into trouble!
World war won't happen if we meditate more, if we pray more, and if
we know God more. That's one of the reasons why I am running around
right now even though I don't feel like it. I'd rather stay home, meditate,
sleep, and eat my Chinese food every day. I run around; I don't have
good food, sleep at different times, don't sleep enough, and am so uncomfortable
in smoking hotels, smoking airplanes, and customs and bureaucracy, red
tape, visas, short timing, and running from one airport to another.
I don't like it. And I spend so much money from my pocket. But I am
willing to do it, and I lovingly do it, because I hope to awaken people's
consciousness for world peace. Only enlightenment can destroy ignorance.
Only God's love can nullify hatred. Only real brotherhood can dissolve
the different conflicts and opinions among our brothers and sisters.
If you and I don't want World War Three, you help me; you bring God's
love to this planet. You help me to pray together in silence, to know
God, to bring Hiers love and heavenly kingdom to this planet. I do not
wish for any rewards from you or from heaven. I just wish what you wish
- a peaceful planet for you, and for me, also. And for that, I spend
my time, my money, and my energy to help bring about peace instead of
spending energy, time, and money for weapons for killing.
To be a master of ourselves, to have victory over our own weaknesses,
our egos, and our evil tendencies is the best victory of any war. As
I am talking to you now, I am also talking to the souls in Yugoslavia,
and all the nations that are still trying to solve conflict by violent
means. That's the reason why I am in Europe this time and am making
the tour around Europe, wishing to bring this message into the souls
of these brothers and sisters. Of course, it is also because of the
requests of my very loving fellow brother and sister spiritual practitioners.
There are about twenty Centers of our spiritual group around Europe,
and they contact each other and meditate together for the same period
of time even though they are in different countries. By doing so, they
hope to bring a more peaceful atmosphere to Europe. They invited me,
almost begging me, to come and that's why I am here. I feel very strongly
that all this goodwill from our brothers and sisters and the goodwill
on my part, together with our silent prayers in the heart and powerful
spiritual energy, will change the course of history and minimize the
possibility of World War Three that you are so fearful of. If you worry
about War World Three, then do something: take action, fight with your
God love, fight with your spiritual power, fight quietly in the corner
of your home, fight with us - that is, get initiation, meditate, contact
God, and change the history of our planet.
