"A Master is one who has
the key for you to become a Master...
to help you realize that you are also a Master and that you and God are
also One.that' all...
that's the only role of the Master."
Throughout the ages, mankind has been visited by rare individuals whose
sole purpose is the spiritual upliftment of humanity.
Jesus Christ was one of these visitors, as were Shakyamuni Buddha and
Mohammed. These three are well known to us, but there are many others
whose names we do not know; some taught publicly, and where known by a
few, and others remained anonymous.
These individuals were called by different names, at different times,
in different countries. They have been referred to as: Master, Avatar,
Enlightened One, Savior, Messiah, Divine Mother, Messenger, Guru, Living
Saint, and the like. They came to offer us what has been called: Enlightenment,
Salvation, Realization, Liberation, or Awakening. The words used may be
different, but in essence they all mean the same thing.
Visitors from the same Divine Source, with the same spiritual
greatness, moral purity, and power to uplift humanity as the Holy Ones
from the past are here with us today, yet few know of their presence.
One of them is the Supreme Master Ching Hai.
Master Ching Hai teaches the importance of the practice of meditation,
inner contemplation and prayer. She explains that we must discover our
own inner Divine Presence, if we are to be truly happy in this life. She
tells us that enlightenment is not esoteric and out of reach, attainable
only by those who retreat from society. Her job is to awaken the Divine
Presence within us, while we lead normal lives. She states: It is like
this. We all know the Truth. It's just that we forgot it. So, sometimes
someone has to come and remind us of the purpose of our life, why we must
find the Truth, why we must practice meditation, and why we must believe
in God or Buddha, or whoever we think is the Highest Power in the Universe.
She asks no one to follow Her. She simply offers Her own enlightenment
as an example, so that others may gain their own Ultimate Liberation.
