The Quan Yin Method is the Most Advanced Science
Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai, Taipei, Formosa, October 25, 1988 (Originally in Chinese) MP3-CG03
Spiritual practice is the highest science. If you practice the Quan Yin Method with me, you will be practicing the highest science and logic. It's not a superstition or a prostration to deities or spirits for merit. It's not mysterious or ambiguous. One doesn't have to jump up clumsily or talk nonsense without even knowing what one is raving about. That is being possessed. What is Maya? It's a kind of power with little knowledge. What is Buddha? It's the one with scientific wisdom. That's all. The more we practice spiritually, the more we understand science. If we only study science without practicing spirituality, our scientific knowledge will be limited. Spiritual development will take us beyond science and ahead of scientists. They've been to the moon, but we can go beyond the moon. They wanted to make more discoveries and travel to more planets but without success. After much effort they eventually brought back some rocks and had many scientists gather together to study these rocks. They cut the rocks and studied them, saying, “Yes! These are really rocks!” [Laughter] It was no fun. They spent tons of money and mountains of effort. If they had put their effort, money and devotion into spiritual development instead, they would have known many scientific things and become saints very quickly.
