We should not be superstitious in spiritual practice, but should clearly understand why we practice this method. Many methods are claimed to be able to liberate people. How then can we distinguish the true from the false? All ancient religions and scriptures stress that people must find an enlightened master to know the way. How can we find a true master? Supreme Master Ching Hai analyzes all kinds of methods, explains the difference between the right way and the outer way, and points out the true path of liberation for spiritual aspirants.
Reading a person’s teachings will tell us what kind of power he represents. If he represents low-level, binding power, he will teach us to be good citizens and perform a lot of charitable work; he will find many reasons and situations for people to be bound here. If he represents good power, he will teach us to forsake this world, because this world is just a school which we should leave behind after we are well-trained. When we seek liberation, then we are truly communicating with the highest power, the Buddha power, the God power.
