"Whatever we can share, begin with sharing, and then we will
feel a subtle change in ourselves, more love will be pouring
into our consciousness, and we will be aware of something,

Supreme Master Ching Hai was born in Central Au Lac. During her
early years, she was often found helping hospital patients and
the needy in whichever way she could.
As a young adult, she moved to Europe to study and continued
there as a voluntary nurse and translator for the Red Cross. She
soon discovered that pain and suffering exist in all cultures
and in all quarters of the globe. And to search for a remedy to
this became the foremost goal in her life.
She was happily married at the time to a German doctor and
although it was an extremely difficult decision for both of them
her husband agreed to the separation. She then embarked on what
became a two year journey in search for spiritual understanding.

Soon after her return from the Himalayas, at the earnest request
of those around her, Master Ching Hai shared the Quan Yin Method

have within ourselves."
People from all walks of life found that through the Quan Yin
Method of meditation, they attained greater fulfillment,
happiness and peace in their daily lives. Before long,
invitations arrived from the United States, Europe, Asia and
South America, as well as the United Nations, for Master Ching
Hai to give lectures.
As well as being a noble example of humanitarian aid, Master
Ching Hai also encourages people to beautify the world we live

it worse, it's up to you."
Through meditating with the Quan Yin Method, Master Ching Hai
has realized many spontaneous talents that she expresses through
artistic paintings and creations, music and poetry, and
aesthetic jewelry and clothing designs, expressing the inner and
outer beauty of the cultures and people she has met.
In 1995, upon the demand of the public, her clothing creations
were toured on the international fashion circuit, including
London, Paris, Milan and New York. The sales of all her artistic
endeavors have enabled Master Ching Hai to create an independent
source of funding for humanitarian activities, highlighting her
pragmatic view that we should always try and create our own
means from which to give others.
Although she does not seek acknowledgement of any kind, in
recognition of her selfless assistance, Supreme Master Ching Hai
has been given awards worldwide by government officials and
private organizations on numerous occasions. They include the
World Peace Award, the World Spiritual Leadership Award, Award
for Promotion of Human Rights, and the Award For Outstanding
Public Service to Mankind.

where there is despair. And, She brings understanding where
there is misunderstanding. She is the light of a great
person, an angel of mercy for all of us."

Supreme Master Ching Hai is one of the truly dedicated people of
this era, helping others find and create a beautiful vision of
our future. Many great people in history have had a dream, and
in her own words, so does Supreme Master Ching Hai:
"I have a
dream. I dream that all the world will become peaceful. I
dream that all the killing will stop. I dream that all the
children will walk in peace and harmony. I dream that all
the nations shake hands with each other, protect each other
and help each other. I dream that our beautiful planet will
not be destroyed. It takes billion, billion, trillions of
years to produce this planet and it's so beautiful, so
wonderful. I dream that it will continue, but in peace,
beauty and love, yeah? That is my dream."
