The whole day through, I walked from one terminal to another. And sometimes the terminal can be like five kilometers long. You know that, huh? From terminal 1 to terminal 2, you can walk forever. And you can get lost meanwhile for fun, also. […] Ah, it was really… The karma is something you could cut, you could feel it, you could grab it. It’s not just talking. It’s not the first time. But normally I do not tell you. Normally we don’t talk about all this. […]

Do you like it? (Yes.) Why? (It’s beautiful here.) It’s yours. It’s yours. It’s ours. Private. Privately owned. It’s so far. My God. After four trains, many taxis and many planes, I’m feeling this place is like another world, another planet – so far away. I forgot to tell you how I got here. When the plane landed, the plane got so hot already. I would have been very happy to run out of that dangerous plane, but they kept us inside. We could not go yet. We were waiting for the bus to take us out. Isn’t that silly. Waiting, waiting, but no bus because all the buses were busy. All the planes that went before us, took the buses already, so we didn’t have any. So finally, they let the “prisoners” out walking. Walking. Thank God at least we are walking on the ground. Before we were “walking on the clouds,” and nobody liked it at all. Even though, if somebody says, “You’re walking on the cloud,” it means, you’re very happy, lucky person, but not that day. No, not yesterday. Not me, no. I’d rather walk on the ground.

We walked, and walked into the airport, and they said, “Please stay here, and we’ll arrange another plane for you sometime when [it’s] convenient.” I said, “No, thank you.” I ran away. Or go out to find a taxi. I wanted to find another airport, because that’s also a smaller airport. It’s not very big and they just [have] emergency landings, and it looked like the weather was not going to clear because was raining very hard, and thunder and all that. There’s another airport still like that. So, I tried to go to another airport. And what happened? I told the taxi driver to go. It’s about 200 kilometers at least to another airport. Fine, we can go. He didn’t know how to go there. He punched it into the GPS. OK. He kept punching and it didn’t work! The GPS didn’t work! He tried all different ways, it didn’t work. Can you believe that? No taxi. No airplane. No GPS. Looks like nobody wants me to see you guys; this these “lousy” faces. Looks like Heaven wants to stop me or something.

My God! I almost died in the air, and I came down and could not even get a taxi! The only taxi left, I ran over there, “Are you free, sir?” “Yes.” OK. I jumped in and the GPS didn’t work. He tried for half an hour, and then I said “OK, just take me anywhere.” And then finally, went around and I said, “Do you know if there are any train stations nearby? Maybe I have to go on a train. Do you know any train going to Vienna? He said, “I have no idea. I never go on trains. I drive taxis all my life, go nowhere.” OK, fine. I said, “Please ask your friends or colleagues. Maybe they know.” Finally, they said, “OK, we know, but it’s about 175 kilometers away from where we were.” So we [drove]. It cost me 500 bucks. (Oh.) Alright. More expensive than sometimes on the airplane actually.

OK, I went there. Luckily, have a train. OK. And go. I said I wanted to go to Vienna. Because that’s all I know. And then they don’t go to Vienna, they go through Munich only. Fine, I go to Munich, hang around there waiting for another train. And then that train doesn’t go somehow. So I said, “OK, is there any other way to go to Vienna or Klagenfurt somehow?” I had to wait many hours more. All day already from Munich was very tiring, because I was running, running. I didn’t know which one. It was very chaotic in the Bahnhof (train station). In the airport it’s very busy, but the Bahnhof (train station), more busy.

My God, I haven’t been on a train for a long time. I forgot what it looked like and what it’s like. You get confused. So many lines. You have to walk from one to another, and so many people, you don’t know where to go. And [if] you want to buy a ticket, you wait – two kilometers long (queue). Really, [it’s] like that. So finally, I asked, “Can we pay somewhere else?” “Yes, there’s a machine! Do You have a national credit card?” “No, I don’t have. A foreigner. Cannot.” So what else to do? Finally, I asked, “Can I pay on the train?” They said, “Yeah, You can.” “Why didn’t you tell [me this] earlier?” “Because it’s more expensive for You.” I said, “I didn’t ask you about saving my money.” Made me wait for half an hour to tell me that.

Because there was still half an hour more to wait if I kept waiting because a lot of people and everybody wanted a cheap price. They have children and they cannot afford to pay on the train. Even 20% more for them is a lot of money. And today, I sat on the train and somebody was arguing about €7. Because he had €7, and then he bought a €7 ticket. And he wanted to upgrade to first class, and the conductor didn’t want to. And then he said, “Oh, that is not good! It’s not legal.” He was going to sue him. Something like that. So, for ordinary people, it’s very difficult. So they all queued in very long queues to wait.

Even for the airplane was also queuing [for] a long time. And I don’t know anything about booking [on the] Internet and all that. And every time I ask somebody to book on the Internet, they have problems. I don’t know why. I could either not get onto the plane or I’d be late on the plane. Or I don’t have a taxi for a plane or the plane delayed or the plane’s kaput. Or the plane returns to the airport. For example, like that. I really don’t have any helpers, I’m telling you up to now. Everything… Can you believe that? Have a ticket already but cannot go because no taxi. Gone on the airplane already, but cannot go because the airplane’s kaput. All in the same day.

The whole day through, I walked from one terminal to another. And sometimes the terminal can be like five kilometers long. You know that, huh? From terminal 1 to terminal 2, you can walk forever. And you can get lost meanwhile for fun, also. If you like to get lost, it’s very easy in the airport, because sometimes they don’t have any signs. Or you might be absent-minded and tired and don’t look, and then you walk into a different tunnel, and there you are, you are at terminal 3, which is another three kilometers away. And then you’re welcome to go back another five kilometers to terminal 2. For example, like that. OK. Ah, it was really… The karma is something you could cut, you could feel it, you could grab it. It’s not just talking. It’s not the first time. But normally I do not tell you. Normally we don’t talk about all this.

Today I feel like I want to because I just arrived. I’m so glad to be here after all day, all night, no drink, no food. And walking from one terminal to another, one airplane to another, and one airport to another. And one train station to another. And one taxi to another. Even taxis, I have to take two, three, because the guy at the airport didn’t know the local area. So I have to take another local taxi. And then sometimes the GPS didn’t work and then I had to take another one, the one that knows. OK, we change it. Kept doing that all day. Two days to get here. It takes only two hours normally. Last time to Malaga, normally it takes only a few hours – it took 36 hours, but that was by car, and today we have all kinds of transportation.

Somebody criticized me one time. I went to the theater one time. Our disciple was an opera singer. Hildegard Behrens. A German one, very famous. And she invited me to go there, or somebody invited me to go to her opera. So I just had an operation, a small one. But it was so painful I could not even walk. And so, they hired a taxi, no, a limousine for me, so that we have all the medicines and all that kind of stuff in there. And somebody criticized me that I went in a limousine.

Only once or twice. Sometimes they require it. For example, if I go to Hollywood, the Oscars, or something, they’d require everybody to go in a limousine. It is a requirement, really. I don’t know why. It is a requirement like that. So, I had to go in a limousine also that time. Anyway, somebody criticized it, some of the journalists or something. So, I said to them, “Oh, you tell him, I don’t just go on limousines, I go [by] airplane!” I take all the airplanes in the world. I go on different kinds of airplanes. Anytime I want, I just take a different airplane. And I go by taxi and now I go by train and all kinds of things. Limousine is nothing, isn’t it? I go on Boeing 707. Yeah. I go everywhere. And if there are UFOs, I’d go [in that] too. Limousine is nada (nothing). No? This is a piece of toy.

OK, now, you know. So, I’m sorry I’m late, but I didn’t mean to cheat you. I really was supposed to be here yesterday at 5 o’clock. You know what I mean, huh? Yeah, alright. So, it’s not always easy to come to see you. I don’t know why. It’s more difficult to see you than to see the Queen of England. Or some king or some queen. I’ve seen some kings, some queens, some presidents, but to see you, my God! What are you? Who are you anyway? Who are you that it’s so difficult to see? (Your kids. Your kids.) Kids? Why so difficult to see? What kind of kids? (Devoted ones.) Devoted kids. If you are half as devoted, I wouldn’t have to go through this. Anyway. OK. I’m just saying.

If it’s too hot, please, we’ll rearrange the time. You tell me when is the best. Because you meditate here all day already, you approximately know what time. Unless the weather changes. And when it’s hot like this, maybe you take groups – thirty people go here and the others go there. It’s the See (lake) all around. Maybe give you like one hour free. You walk around, and if you see no gate to the See (lake), you just jump in. And if people scold you, you’re already wet. What to do? Well, people are not that strict here anyway. They know we’re tourists, nobody understands much about the rules around here. And the See (lake) is big anyway. I mean, the lake is big. You just look to see where, and you jump in. And look for a little bit cleaner, there are some places that are not very clean.

There’s a hotel they want to sell for two million euros, but so dirty! The house’s dirty. The beach is dirty like nobody has cleaned it for 100 years. I’m not joking. No, if you don’t believe me, you go out, walk left and keep walking. Then you’ll see the dirtiest beach in the whole world, then you know, that is the one. Dirty and rotten things and Coca-Cola bottles. All kinds of things all over and oh God, I don’t even want to look at it. Not to talk about buying it, even if I have the money. Because if you buy that, you would spend five million dollars more to repair it and clean [it] up, to befit the kids.

The “royal” kids.

Maybe you go free. Oh, too hot! Go, go, go. Go do something. Eat or do whatever. What time [do] you eat? (5’o clock.) It’s about time, 4:41. Who cares? Refresh yourself and then ready for food. (OK. Thank You.) See you later. Ciao. I go wash. See you later, guys. Enjoy! You know what, after eating, if you want, because it’s cooler now, so you may go stroll around. Just go like you don’t know each other. OK? You can go like two, three people, ten people, know each other OK. Don’t hold hands. If people hold hands, let everybody know that we are the Quan Yin family, oh dear God. No, huh? I’m not joking. I’m serious. (Yes, Master.)

Just go like a tourist. OK? No ID card. No Master photos. No Master photos. No ID. OK? (OK.) The lake doesn’t care about your ID. And nobody here cares. You just walk like a tourist. (OK.) A group OK, but not too many people. Not, “Hey! Over here!” “Hufa! (Dharma guard) ….” Don’t do that. I’m not kidding. (Yes, OK.) (Yes.) Otherwise, if there is any trouble, we cannot stay. Even if it’s my own place, I don’t want noise. Quiet. Tell everybody. Tell each other. “OK. We go, no talking.” See you. (See You!)
