“You shall not worship except God.” I come to you from Him as a warner, as well as a bearer of good news. You shall seek your Lord’s forgiveness, then repent to Him. He will then bless you generously for a predetermined period, and bestow His grace upon those who deserve it. To God is your ultimate return, and He is Omnipotent. His (earthy) domain was completely covered with water- in order to test you, to distinguish those among you who work righteousness. God controls all things.

Actually, lslam, it means peace. Means the religion of peace. He needs us to follow his teaching. Literally. From A to Z. Non-violence. Then you really do honor to the Prophet. But the people who are doing violent things really, really make Muslim religion look bad, and make the real, beautiful, friendly, loving Muslim believers look bad. There are always two forces in this world, negative and positive. And these are always at odds with each other. This is the temptation that we always heard about in this world. The negative always tries to give temptation to people, to make people bad. And the positive power tries to save them, tries to tell them to do the right thing, go into the better, correct direction. So, the Master, the Prophet always represents this positive power.

You have to think before you do anything bad, or anything you doubt, “that’s not good,” you have to think, “Would Buddha do this?” “Would Jesus act like that?” “Would Prophet Muhammad agree to my action?” Then you will know what to do. Otherwise, if you don’t have guidance, you just do whatever you think in your mind, then it’s mostly just negative, because you don’t meditate enough to overcome the negative power of this world. So always think... That’s why the teaching of the Buddha is important, the teaching of Jesus is important, the teaching of Islam is important. Take it as a guidance. Then you won’t go wrong. That’s how you follow Islam’s teaching, that’s how you’ll be a good Christian, and this how you are a true Buddhist. It is the good guidance for you so that you will not err in this negative domain, so that you will not be overpowered by your own past karmic force and the force of negativity in this world, the collective one.

So in this world, you need a master. Need somebody who can help you in times of trouble, because in times of trouble you don’t remember who you are. You cannot even get up yourself. Your soul, your knowledge have been suppressed and locked and covered and taken from you so that you don’t even know what you come here for, and you forgot your vows, your promises, before you came. This is the trick of maya: they let you come here, but when you come here, you’re under the control, under their control. That’s a pack deal, you see? There’s a price to pay to be here. Even to fulfill your job or to progress spiritually or to help somebody to progress spiritually, there’s a price to pay.

The story starts to unfold when she gets sick without any known causes. One day, Annabel has a terrible accident while playing with Abbie, her older sister. To everyone’s surprise— and relief—she not only survives unscathed, but she wakes up cured from her illness! “Lion,” directed by Garth Davis, is another adaptation of fascinating true story of a little boy from rural central India. The story set in 1986 when a five-year-old boy named Saroo accompanies his older brother to Burhanpur, 70 kilometers from their hometown. When his brother asks him to wait for him at a train station, the little boy mistakenly steps onto a train that carries him to Calcutta, thousands of miles away from home. But memories from his past come back to haunt him, and he finds a calling to search for his family back in India. Would it be possible to find his home when he cannot even remember the name of his city? Would he be able to reunite with his beloved brother, from whom he was separated so many years ago?

Quetzalcoatl as legendary ruler of Toltec in Mexico.; Known as a holy man who was in communication with the Divine. Many of the rituals, laws, and customs in Mexico were based on his life and teaching. Wherever he went, Quetzalcoatl shared the teaching that he had learned from Heaven and from the wise sages he encountered during his travels. “I feel alone in the middle of the earth. I fall into meditation and I see that there is no joy, that I’m not happy. Only death and suffering are all around. What else is there for me to do?” “Friends, bring for me a stone coffin.” (The coffin is a symbol for change or for a step in an initiation.)

There are many in the Buddhist sutras; there are many nice stories. This is one of them. One time, the Buddha in maybe Varanasi, at that time, the Buddha was staying in that garden. Ananda kneeled in front of the Buddha and asked, “Please, World Honored One, how come the five persons have such a great merit to become your first disciples?” So the Buddha said, “At one time, a long, long time ago they were almost starving to death and I, myself - the Buddha – because of compassion, I cut my vein and gave them the blood so that they could drink and save their lives. Therefore at this time, they can be my five disciples. Because I promised them to enlighten them first.” There are other longer stories that recounted many more of the Buddha’s great deeds of compassion and offering. Many, many countless lifetimes. So that he can accumulate all this merit in order to attain Buddhahood. And something for the thought. To remind us that we have to be more diligent, more compassionate, more considerate to other people, if we want to be worthy of a human, not to talk about elevation into the heavenly kingdom.

As we move into the Golden Age, more and more people are interested in taking up the practice of meditation. If you have wondered why someone would spend a small part of their day sitting still with their eyes closed, then this is the show for you! Please be aware that although various meditation techniques will be discussed on this program, this does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation of any of them. Mindful meditation is one technique that some advocate to soothe the mind and regain a sense of peace and centeredness. A very basic form of mindful meditation is deep breathing. Greater Good in Action, a project in the US sponsored by the University of California- Berkeley and HopeLab, has published online a description of how to practice this particular method. A slightly more advanced, but still very simple, form of meditation that some practice every day is “Mindful Breathing.” The Buddhist Centre, a website created by the Triratna Buddhist Order, describes a four-step process for the Mindful Breathing practice.In a December 11, 2010 lecture in Cancún, Mexico, Supreme Master Ching Hai discussed the blessings that the air provides to us and the spiritual benefits of breathing. “And the air you breathe, just breathing it in, the air blesses you 15%. The trees bless you, even the plants bless you, the flowers in the garden bless you, the sand on the beach blesses you. Even the flies bless you. The bees — the bees... bzzzzz! — bless you. They don’t only work to help you to pollinate the fruit and the vegetables, they also give you their spiritual power.”“This breathing is very good for you. Even if you choose another method of meditation, you breathe. All the good information is in the air — you breathe in, you assimilate information.”“All, the whole universe, are blessing us. We are very lucky. Please, just be conscious. Try to be conscious and remember and feel it. Feel it. If you keep breathing the way they have taught you, and conscious of taking in the blessing and breathing out the blessing — I also tell people the same — and also less meat, after a few weeks you will feel like a different person.”
