The neighbors didn’t trust us and called the police. The initiates came to make a video – my work, my recitation, poems or singing – and they waited all week until I had some inspiration. And when I got the inspiration, I said, “OK, now we start.” But then the police were already at the gate. All morning they knocked and wanted to see everything at my place. OK, fine. They only saw some things, not everything, and then they left. But they didn’t leave. We saw that they stayed in the area.

How many people are we here? (Two hundred.) Two hundred? But so small– a small group. All are here? All in here or are there others? (There are 200.) Yes, but are they all here in this room? (Downstairs.) Is anyone downstairs? (The kids are not.) We can’t have kids here anyway. So many big kids are here already. The poor children, the little ones. I’ll take care of them later. About that afterward, about it afterward, about it after. Later. Yes, about that later.

Yeah, I love the German language. It’s so pretty – pretty difficult! Yes, it is cute, very cute the German language. If you’re not used to it, it’s so hard. (Yes, I cannot imagine, but...) Yes, you cannot imagine... Try to speak Chinese, then you can imagine. Or Aulacese (Vietnamese), then you can imagine that. (Yes, then I can imagine that.) Yes, it’s not a problem. All languages are just the Quan Yin language.

Can you see me? (A little bit.) You can hear. Hearing is OK. Can the Aulacese (Vietnamese) see? (Yes, we can.) Do the Chinese see? Have the Chinese seen me already? You can’t see anything, OK. Then I will stand up, but no difference. No difference whether I stand or sit. I am so small. I’m just kidding, a joke. You guys are just too cute for me.

Do you have any questions? Then let’s get started. Anything to ask? (No.) Oh, so quiet. My God! So quiet. If you don’t have anything to ask, then we meditate. OK? (OK.) It works or not? (No.) No, then we meditate.

It’s OK now? Wonderful! I see that. Wow! And no problem; I’m used to all this maya. Can I speak English a little bit sometimes? (Yes!) German is so difficult for me. I can, but I have to think. Thinking takes so long, and we don’t have that much time.

I’m already used to maya’s tricks. They always have something for me. Last night... Do you understand anything? Do you? (Yes, I do.) Chinese? The ones in the back, they all understand German, right? (Yes.) Yes? (Yes.) Almost all of them? (Yes.) That’s good. So the French, the English have to learn German, and then come back later. (We understand.) OK, good. I’m trying to speak both in German and English, whenever it goes.

Yesterday, I was trying to do some poetry recitation in Aulacese (Vietnamese). And originally, the technician – the so-called technician – prepared everything already, and it worked well. Until when I wanted to recite, nothing worked. The light went off for no reason, like this kind of light – off. And then, OK, we thought the light was kaput, brought another light, also didn’t work. And later, she found out that it was the adapter. The adapter didn’t work. OK, we changed the adapter. And then the camera didn’t work! And they didn’t know what happened – maybe low battery. Changed the battery, still didn’t work! And changed the adapter, then it worked.

And later, the lamp didn’t work, then the camera worked. The camera worked, then the lamp didn’t work. And the whole night until, maybe, midnight or something, then it worked. And by that time, I was already... No more inspiration, so tired, and I wanted to throw everything out of the window and call the police, “Come pick up.”

I said, yesterday evening, I wanted to recite some poetry. Then everything went kaput. One thing went kaput, and we repaired it, and then something else broke. One after another, one after another, the whole evening. So about midnight, everything started working again, one after another. By then, I had no more energy or inspiration to start again, but I did it anyway. It wasn’t that good. My voice wasn’t so beautiful, maybe because I was so tired and stressed, but still, I had finished it.

But that was not the worst I have had to deal with. There have been worse. For example, in France: One time I was there, and we were new to the area. And the police came because the neighbors called. There were some Black, chocolate-colored initiates, and also the Chinese and Aulacese (Vietnamese). They were not all from Âu Lạc (Vietnam) or anything. They were from America, and the Blacks were from England.

They were not illegal, but the neighbors didn’t trust us and called the police. The initiates came to make a video – my work, my recitation, poems or singing – and they waited all week until I had some inspiration. And when I got the inspiration, I said, “OK, now we start.” But then the police were already at the gate. All morning they knocked and wanted to see everything at my place. OK, fine. They only saw some things, not everything, and then they left. But they didn’t leave. We saw that they stayed in the area, and also in the mountains looking down, and also at the end of the road. We saw them not that far away, about 500 meters or so, and they stayed there all night.

So the people with the video equipment, the so-called experts from abroad – from America, England and so on – were waiting for me. And we couldn’t wait anymore because they had been waiting for a long time. We had to get on with it. So, that night, after midnight, we started – secretly. We closed the windows because although our light was not very bright, we were in the mountains where there were few people. So, any brightness would be visible to anyone in the vicinity and even from a distance. I covered all the windows with sleeping bags. Not a single ray of light could escape to the outside.

And then… they didn’t have cool light bulbs there. I don’t know why. It was in the summer and so hot. During summer in France, it’s about 33 degrees Celsius, sometimes 35 degrees during the day. At night, it was a little better, but with so many lights, so big and hot... These green lights are good. At that time, they brought only hot lights for me; I don’t know why. I never asked because they had everything hidden in the garage or somewhere.

We had all our papers, passports, no problem. But if the police saw so many people, then they would come again and ask many questions. And many questions means many problems. In Âu Lạc (Vietnam), they say, “If you sweep a house, you’ll always find something.” Because we were so many, a whole team. At that time, we didn’t have Supreme Master Television, but they had another TV program, and the whole group came. So many people at once, and they had big cameras, big lights, and lots of cables and everything.

And if the police came, we might not be able to explain what we were doing on this mountain with so many things, so many cables. Then we might have to go with them to the police station and explain it first. “Maybe you are innocent, maybe, but you come with us anyway!” We were a little afraid of that. You see, because we can’t always explain. So, everyone was hiding, even though we hadn’t done anything.

We were all legal, all with passports and visas, all, no problem. But we were so scared because this had happened before. There were so many cables, so many lights, and two or three big cameras, each costing maybe 40,000 euros. Do you understand? From Japan – the big expensive ones. And a microphone costing 10,000 Deutschmarks, maybe. And the lights and everything... “What are you doing there?”

And I wanted to live there anonymously. I just wanted peace and quiet, to just do my work. Not to answer many questions, and not to explain where I am from, who I am, and what I do. That’s like when you clean the house, something always turns up. I don’t know what, but it’s better not to be confronted. Although we have nothing to hide, we don’t keep secrets or do bad things, but in this world almost everything is bad.
