Supreme Master Ching Hai encourages fellow practitioners never to give up hope even if we cannot meditate well. We should just continue and one day we will break through. Even if we don’t break through Master promises to always be there and help us. Master also reminds that we should always speak positively as the spiritual practitioner’s speech is very powerful. Master’s picture is intended to remind us of how great we are: We can liberate ourselves go to Heaven and even help the world. We should thus treat Master’s pictures with all our love and respect and not for the purpose of material gain. During this gathering Master also explains how we can get along with each other as companions. In speaking about the inspiration for writing the song “Talking to a Stone Buddha” Master uplifts all as She spontaneously sings the song.
