Excerpts from Supreme Master Ching Hai’s lecture:
I don't do anything physical to you during initiation. In fact, I don't even have to be at the place of initiation because God will do everything through this office. So wherever the office is, it's all right because God's power is very strong. It's just that Hes needs a physical tool to work with because if the God power were to descend directly from Heaven to us, we'd die. We'd be broken into pieces, into powder. We couldn't bear it. We have to kind of moderate it in order to suit the physical frame, and slowly, slowly, we'll become one with God, and then we can be used to being one with God again. So God has to train someone in an abstract way to be a technician, to regulate this power. That's it. But you have it in you. Just fix it back to yourself. So there's no system.
Some of our brothers and sisters have washed dishes and God has come, and sometimes they've dropped the dishes. Yes, sometimes they drive a car and they can see God, see the Light of God, hear the Music of Heaven, see angels talking to them, telling them things, or advising them. You can see Jesus, see Buddha, see Mohammed, see Moses or see whomever you believe in. It depends on how sincere you are and how much effort you put in. I can't promise that you, a Christian, will see Jesus or the Jews will see Abraham because sometimes God makes jokes. Hes makes the Jew see Buddha and the Christian see Abraham. Yes, it's true, it's true. Hes does that to show us that all religions belong to Hirm, and all are one.
