Illness Is Also a Warning

Spoken by Supreme Ching Hai at Georgetown University, Washington D.C., U.S.A, April 14, 1993
(originally in English) Videotape No. 352


Q: What's the purpose of epidemic diseases such as malaria, AIDS, etc. Are humans interfering with the natural process by trying to find cures for these diseases?

M: Even you find some cures for these diseases, another disease will breed itself out. Only when human beings realize that they should surrender to God, to the Almighty Power which is within us, only when humans realize that in them there's a great power to heal all diseases and that they should rely on this power alone will all diseases cease. All these things are warnings to tell that we should return to God.
