  • Summary


What bad karma has the most knowledgeable man named Kapili created that led him to be incarnated as a fish with a hundred  heads? Supreme Master Ching Hai told us a Buddhist story to remind us that we must be very careful with our body, speech and mind so as to avoid dreadful consequences.

In India, the origin of Buddhism, what are the differences between the practicing methods of all current religious groups and the traditional Buddhism? What kind of open-mindedness should an enlightened person  have  towards  various levels, tastes and ways of practice of sentient beings? Master tells us about various religious groups she encountered during a visit to a Bodhi ashram and reminds us that to practice is to know ourselves inwardly and not to poke our noses into others' business; Buddha knows to what extent our sincerity reaches and rewards us according to our inner achievement. We are great only if we are open-minded and tolerant  to all; if we have a narrow mindset and are attached to one single corner, stereotyping Buddha with a set frame, then it would  be enough to worship wooden Buddha statue, because we are not open and tolerant enough to hold all the universe and all the goodness and badness.
