If we practice the wrong method, we will come back life after life; but if we practice the right method, we will attain instant enlightenment! When we know our own “Guan Yin”, Guan Yin will be one with us. Guan Yin Bodhisattva is not a different person but our capacity of compassion. We are already using a little bit of this power even when we haven’t attained all of it; when we sympathize with others or alleviate others from sufferings, our Guan Yin Power is revealed. This power, however, belongs to this world and low levels; there are higher levels of Guan Yin power yet to be realized.
After practicing Guan Yin Method, we will get to know our Power of Guan Yin which will save people from hell to heaven, from the mundane world to the world of extreme bliss, all in an instant. That’s the highest level of Guan Yin Power. The worldly power is ephemeral , so we’d better not be attached to the status or power in this world, because we have to leave them some day, or it will leave us; we should seek for the power of Guan Yin and the omnipotent power within us, which is ever lasting and can’t be grabbed, bound or stolen, so nobody can take it away.
“Master, it’s written in the scriptures that Quan Yin Bodhisattva is omnipresent. Why didn’t she save this pitiful family?” “That’s right! I also want to ask you why? It’s because we don’t know Quan Yin. We are not connected with Her. If we were, we wouldn’t need to practice spiritually. Shakyamuni Buddha didn’t have to practice so hard, Jesus Christ didn’t need to meditate in the desert and He could have gone preaching! It would have been enough for us to recite the names of Jesus Christ, Quan Yin Bodhisattva and Mitreya Buddha. Why bother to work so hard? Why did Shakyamuni Buddha have to preach, write so many sutras and teach so many methods? There are more than 8,400 methods. Is it enough to recite the name of Quan Yin Bodhisattva? (Audience: No.) It’s only enough when we know Quan Yin Bodhisattva. It’s only enough when we are connected with Quan Yin Bodhisattva. It’s only enough when we use the power of Quan Yin Bodhisattva. It’s not enough to just recite the name. Can you be full by reciting the name of the cookie?”
