One morning shortly after initiation, I was meditating and was about to enter samadhi. (Although my physical body was losing sensation gradually, my soul was still in absolute awareness.) I could feel a warm current moving slowly throughout my body and limbs. Feeling hot and agitated all over, I was anxiously trying to be free of all restraints and soar high. Suddenly, “whiz!” My soul burst out of my wisdom eye, and soared into the boundless night sky at an incredible supra-worldly speed. There was a motionless pause, followed by another speedy climb. Then, there was another pause, a third ascent, ending in perfect stillness.
Leisurely, I looked up at the twinkling starry sky. I could hear the whistling wind and roaring thunder. These breathtaking Heavenly Sounds rolled over me like collapsing mountains and violent ocean waves, as if thousands of cavalries were charging by. One thing was very strange. Alone in this spectacular, infinite cosmos, my insignificant spiritual body did not feel lonely or scared. On the contrary, I felt spirited, refreshed, relaxed and free. I was in absolute bliss. All the while, I did not forget to recite the Five (Holy) Names. In perfect awareness, I could feel that dear Master was always by my side. I was enveloped by the boundless love Master bestowed on me.
Several days later, I had another incredible experience in my meditation, spectacular, golden, brilliant fireworks bursting forth continuously. At the center of the extreme brightness, I clearly perceived the magnificent manifestation form of the Tathagata (Shakyamuni) Buddha. I could also hear the fabulous supra-worldly music.
After the meditation, the familiar sound of Master singing the Buddhist hymns reverberated in my room. So amazed and delighted, I immediately continued to meditate and listened with my wisdom eye. After several minutes, stealthily I opened my eyes and listened with my human ears. Master’s wonderful voice was still singing so distinct and fascinating. I opened and closed my eyes several times. More than ten minutes elapsed before Master’s voice finally faded away. I am grateful for Master’s extra blessing to me!
Shortly afterwards, the merciful Master let me have another “ascent to Heaven.” I was up in the sky in the brilliant and colorful Buddha’s land that I saw last time. In a glorious, strikingly colorful and extremely beautiful mansion surrounded by auras, I saw the most merciful, great savior – the Quan Yin Bodhisattva (Avalokitesvara), wearing a white dress and white hat, whom I have worshipped and longed to see for decades. During the most precarious and miserable past years, our whole family, old and young, have managed to struggle through all hardships, thanks to the constant protection and blessings of the Quan Yin Bodhisattva.
Now, I realize that the Quan Yin Bodhisattva is my dear Master Ching Hai. Writing this, a flood of tears blurs my vision. Blissful tears of thankfulness keep rolling down my cheeks. I simply cannot express my infinite love and gratitude to You, my lovely dear Master!
