Supreme Master Ching Hai mentioned that humanity’s evolution toward loving kindness has nothing to do with the world adopting some type of system but depends entirely on whether we aspire to ascend to a higher spiritual realm. During the current period of grace, the Supreme Master can help all who are good at heart even if they still eat meat. Only those who kill people or slaughter animals in a grand scale must be excluded from the grace of Heaven.
Master also explained why we should not criticize Master, saying that enlightened masters have their own reasons and inner mission to fulfill in everything they do. Criticizing enlightened masters will make us lose a lot of merit.
During this special retreat, Master and fellow initiates also walked through the nearby forest trails, enjoying many relaxed and happy moments as they talked and laughed together in nature.
