Master Displays Her Almighty Power At The Esoteric Fair
Fellow practitioners in Berlin recently participated in this year's Esoteric Fair, which received a strong public response. Master's voice which generated an immensely strong, clear and indeed, even miraculous flow of energy, was the focus of attention.
This year, though everything was different, all the other exhibitors in addition to the spectators, highly acclaimed Master again.
Fellow practitioners could feel Master's fantastic power pervading the venue. In the exhibition hall, a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere reigned. Many visitors who came to our booth commented on it. And many of them noticed that this energy could especially be felt at our booth.
In the morning, before the fair opened, and in the evening, after closing-time, all the other exhibitors picked up a sample booklet. In this way, Master's presence was at nearly every exhibiting booth.
A young female exhibitor, who was just beginning to show an interest in spiritual matters, had many questions. After receiving a free sample booklet, she began to walk away only to turn back after several steps. Her face beamed with joy. The first sentence she had read had given her an answer to one of her questions. After we confirmed her that this was exactly how things worked in the spiritual domain, she went contentedly on her way again, only to once again come back and report that she had received another answer. This time she wanted more publications, and her heart was overjoyed.
There was another exhibitor whom we meet every year and who has all of Master's books, some videos and one of Her posters. This exhibitor told us that she and her husband have a strong affinity with Master. On the very first evening, after the fair had closed, she came to our booth and, feeling a little embarrassed and unsure of herself, asked us a question: "Was there a special layer of luminous paint on Master's poster which made it glow in the dark?" After we negated this, she told us, repeatedly shaking her head, that the poster radiated light at night.
The next evening the woman asked if she could have the poster we had put up at our booth after the fair concluded. She wanted to put it up for the benefit of the visitors who came to her house where she held meditation and seminars about crystals. Later she informed us that the phenomenon of the light had also appeared in her husband's bedroom. This even happened in front of strangers, whom she had mentioned the phenomenon to. So visitors often convened in the bedroom to observe the light.
Since she has been present at esoteric fairs in Berlin and in other cities in Germany for many years, she knows many exhibitors. Many other exhibitors whom she told about the miracle of Master's photos emitting light also approached our booth to find out more about Master. Therefore many people called us to register for initiation, or to ask many questions about Master's teachings.
Spreading The Truth In "The City Of UFOs"
Brighton is located on the south coast of England and has always been a well-known tourist attraction in Europe. In the last decade, frequent appearances of UFOs near the city drew attention from UFO researchers, who established a special research organization there. "Why is it that UFOs are fond of this place?" has become a hot topic of conversations.
In the middle of January, our branch Center in U.K. took the rare opportunity to participate in the Holistic Health & Psychic Fair held at the Town Hall in Hove, a town near Brighton. A variety of Master's beautiful publications were displayed at our booth, which became the focal point of the event. As it was the first time that the local people came in contact with these wonderful teachings, the Quan Yin Method and Master, almost all the visitors at the exhibition asked us for sample booklets.
Many of them were surprised to receive such an exquisite booklet free of charge, and expressed their gratitude. The reason being that almost all the exhibitors at the event charged, and some of them were very expensive. This poignantly revealed Master's love, compassion and understanding for sentient beings.
During the event, the organizers especially invited fellow practitioners to give a brief talk so that those who were coming in contact with Master and the Quan Yin Method for the first time could gain a better understanding. In the talk, fellow practitioners briefly introduced Master, and then showed one of Her video tapes.
The talk was scheduled for only a short time but the audience was still attentively watching the video tape when the time was up. So it was extended until the end of the video.
Afterwards, all those who had attended expressed that they were impressed by Master's talents and beauty, and the Quan Yin Method. They said that they would contact our branch Center to learn and practice the Quan Yin Method.
Our neighboring booth, "Sky Search," was a local organization specializing in UFO research. When their organizer, who is also responsible for their organization's magazine, learned in a discussion he had with our fellow practitioners that Master began to give lectures on the subject of extraterrestrials and UFOs a long time ago, he strongly believed that Master is someone who has attained great enlightenment. He also agreed totally with what Master has said: "Extraterrestrials have long wanted to interact with us. However, we must uplift our spiritual level before we can communicate with them." This organizer also hopes to keep in touch with us.
Fellow practitioners from U.K. went to "The City Of UFOs" to spread the Quan Yin Method for the first time.
Everything Is Due To Master's Love
Caressed by Master's holy love, fellow practitioners in the Palawan Refugee Camp are efficiently and optimistically launching all sorts of activities to serve and help people in need.
Each day, they prepare food to serve several hundred people in the camp who are interested in trying vegetarian dishes. Occasionally, they even prepare some exotic vegetarian dishes for a change.
In the camp Center, they make gluten and tofu themselves and grow a variety of vegetables. Blessed by Master's love, they are having a rich harvest.
Master is greatly concerned about the nutrition and medical problems in the camp. As instructed by Her, fellow practitioners supply milk to hundreds of children, several times a month, which provides them with essential nutrients. They also distribute medical supplies to people who are sick and in need of care. The Center has prepared some simple medical supplies for patients who must work and cannot see a doctor.
Though the school in the Camp has closed, teachers and students persist in organizing classes in this challenging situations, so that the children will not forget their mother language. Thanks to Master's love and compassion, the children now have text books, instructional materials and also a newly renovated playground. The children are extremely excited to have a place where they can play everyday.
Fellow practitioners do not forget Master's directive: to help people who need care. Every month, they go to the hospital to comfort patients, and hand out sample booklets, magazines and milk. On occasions, such as holidays, they prepare some French bread sandwiches and rice to share with needy people living nearby. Sometimes, they visit the prison, taking Master's love to the inmates, and distributing rice, personal utensils and Master's spiritual food to them.
Recently, all the Filipino people on Palawan Island have been able to view Master's lectures on television each Saturday evening. There are already some would-be initiates who are on a strict vegetarian diet, and practicing the Convenient Method while awaiting initiation.
Obtaining Enlightenment Through Initiation
After his wisdom eye was opened, he could easily see spiritual energy and color emanating from everyone around him. Among non-practitioners, few emitted light; however, he noticed that those who practiced the Quan Yin Method all had lotus flower petals and light around their whole bodies, according to their level. He discovered with greater surprise that every picture of Master, large or small, had stars, suns and moons on them; and Master's whole body emitted extremely brilliant heavenly light. Moreover, he had never seen anyone's wisdom eye opened as widely as Master's, which was as gleaming and piercing as Bodhidharma's wisdom eye.
During initiation, he saw that almost everyone who was initiated at that time gave off white light. Because of Master's almighty blessing power, everyone's spirit was uplifted to a higher level.
In another case, a sister initiate, suddenly saw during meditation that three enlightened beings appeared in a contact person's home, which made her feel very puzzled. Exiting samadhi! She headed to the contact person's home to pay a visit.
After inquiring, she came to know that an initiation had occurred during the time she was meditating. Three would-be initiates received initiation at that time. This experience confirmed what Master has said: "Those who have received initiation have already become enlightened."
Finding A True Living Master
A non-initiated spiritual practitioner from Shanxi practices meditation regularly. Once during meditation, his spiritual body went to higher realms. Suddenly he saw an enlightened being giving a discourse, so he stayed and listened. During the lecture he learned that this enlightened being had already descended to the world to save sentient beings. As he looked down, he found that Shanxi, China was radiating strong light. After coming out of samadhi, he then started off to that certain place to look for this enlightened being.
He asked everyone if they knew the whereabouts of an enlightened being. Then one day, someone told him that a very famous master was staying in a certain temple. He immediately went there to visit the so-called famous master; however, it was not the one he had seen in samadhi. Several days later, someone told him again that a very high level spiritual practitioner would come there. He then hurried to see the practitioner, but was disappointed once more.
Suddenly one day, while feeling disheartened, he met a fellow initiate who introduced him to Master's teachings, and gave him a sample booklet. When he saw Master's picture, he was shocked to discover that the enlightened being he had seen in the higher realms turned out to be Supreme Master Ching Hai! Providence does not let down one who puts forth his best efforts, finally leading him to his master!
A Practical Lesson On Manners
Held During The One Day Retreat
Recently, on a holiday when Hsihu Center was closed to the public, the Taoyuan Center held a one day retreat. Apart from encouraging fellow practitioners to practice diligently, it was held to improve the manners of staff at the Center. They even held an intensified course on social etiquette for members on duty.
As Taoyuan Center is situated near Chiang Kai-Shek International Airport, it often has to receive foreign initiates and guests. Therefore, the course also included: etiquette when receiving guests, talking on the telephone, and making whomever is received feel more comfortable.
Before the course concluded, the trainees participated in a mock exercise. All of them actively volunteered to get on stage to practice conversing politely based on their personal experiences. Fellow practitioners watching responded with understanding smiles.
Apart from training fellow practitioners to speak more gently and openly, which is essential for the front-line work when spreading the Quan Yin Method, this course also carried out Master's directive: "Cultivate good manners. We should let politeness begin with us."
Promoting A Vegetarian Diet
At The "Love Your Children" Garden Party
Visitors enjoying the vegetarian delicacies at the Taoyuan Center Booth.
The warm winter sun attracted many guests to the Garden Party. We remembered that at the same time last year, Taoyuan Center's booth was also crowded with visitors, and our food supply fell short of demand. This time, some former customers who remembered our delicious vegetarian food, found their way to our booth again.
After sampling various dishes cooked in different styles and offering divergent tastes, they were satisfied, joyful and full of praise. In addition, Master's News magazines near the table offered them the best spiritual food, thus enabling them to obtain a bountiful harvest both inwardly and outwardly.
That day happened to be one on which a visitor was on a vegetarian diet. He was delightfully surprised when seeing our fellow initiates' vegetarian booth. His daughter, who had come with him, was originally not interested in a vegetarian diet. Unexpectedly, after tasting our food, she came back asking for another bowl of it.
After our fellow practitioners had packed up the booth, a little child came. Holding his mother's hand tightly, he told them that he had not eaten enough a moment ago and was not satisfied.
While witnessing the fact that modern families are gradually becoming fascinated with the vegetarian diet, we fellow initiates gained tremendous assurance in the growth of the vegetarian population and the arrival of the era of vegetarianism. We appreciated Master's blessing power even more, which allowed our participation in this activity to be smooth and successful.
Restore The Great Earth To Its Original Look
To carry out Master's directive to beautify the world, fellow practitioners from Miaoli Center and the resident disciples from Hsihu Center hoped to give a new fresh look to the environment before the Chinese New Year. Therefore, they went out together to clean and protect the environment.
That day, the air was refreshingly cool - neither chilly nor hot, and it was really comfortable to work in such weather. In our hearts, everyone knew that it was Master's loving blessing!
The section of the road that we adopted for maintenance was on a hillside. The road surface was very clean, but there were big heaps of fallen leaves on the roadside. Also, among the wild grass was a lot of rubbish casually left by people, which had to be dug out and taken away. The situation seemed to reflect our inner condition -- that we have hidden in ourselves many inconspicuous and undesirable qualities, and we must face them honestly and bravely, so that we can rectify them and improve.
As the road was long, and there were plenty of fallen leaves to be cleared, the work progressed very slowly. A fellow sister was suddenly inspired to use large abandoned tarpaulins instead of the thin and fragile plastic garbage bags. Subsequently, the efficiency increased, and we managed to finish the job on time. Having accomplished our assignment and fulfilled our obligation, everyone felt relieved and happy.

The Tears Of The Holy Mother Fall On Ding Wan
Recently, fellow practitioners from the Penghu Center visited Ding Wan prison once again. The same lukewarm weather prevailed, and fellow practitioners were full of joy. Fellow practitioners no longer regard the prison as an unfamiliar place, and they believed that the process of spreading the Truth, with Master's blessing, would be most meaningful. When fellow practitioners noticed the flowers and plants nurtured by the inmates were bright and tidy, a prison officer remarked: "In fact, there are many talented inmates!" Fellow practitioners believe deeply that not only are they talented, but that they also have beautiful hearts!
On this occasion a fellow initiate brother, who is a reformed drug addict, talked to the cigarette and drug addicted inmates about his personal experience. He said, "If one person gets addicted to drugs then the whole family will be affected." Despite being strong willed, he could not escape the influence of friends and the environment because of his addiction. Fortunately, he met Master, got initiated, and worked in the Center. After a few months of being totally cut off from outside negative influences, he found that he was never lost again.
The sincere story of this brother's journey made the audience feel Master's great and boundless power. The miraculous change of this famous figure of organized crime was of great interest to the inmates. In order to make the atmosphere of spreading the Truth lighter, fellow practitioners prepared some songs to teach the inmates. Since there was a sister who had been broadcasting weekly programs for inmates, the song, 'Tears of the Holy Mother' was already very familiar and well remembered by them. The singing evoked a particularly close feeling.
With the permission of the prison officers, some of the inmates went on stage to sing together with the fellow sisters, shortening the distance between them. Everyone felt a bonding of friendship. After the meeting, every inmate was given a meal box and Master's News magazine. Many very eagerly asked for photos of Master. Fellow practitioners sincerely hope that every inmate will find peace of mind and get enlightened from Master's power, to liberate their souls!
