Master’s Words

Q: What is your view of family?

M: Family is very good for you. Life can be lonely and a struggle without the support of loved ones. The family should be your cherished treasure. You should love them, appreciate them and make them feel happy the way they want, not just the way you want. The more love and sacrifice you put into your family, the more you will get in return, and the more you will all be happy together.

You can live alone, but you can also live with family. And if you have family, you should be the best family member. The family is the foundation of the world. We should take care that it stays intact and beautiful.

Personal problems, family problems, don't seem to belong to the spiritual field. But they do. Because what is the good of you, of me, teaching you to do meditation and to become a Saint while your life is in misery, your husband is in trouble and lonely, and your children are feeling unhappy because of a split family? And I already want to bring Heaven to you now, not hell. Therefore, everything you can use of this world to make your life better, to beautify your surroundings, and to solidify, to consolidate your marriage, then please use it, and do not be bound by it, but just use it.

“The children, you should not leave them to play with children. Children should learn with adults. That's how they grow up. And actually we should not have too many children if we can not individually take care of them. You should devote your life to children, one child at a time. You should always be there for them and with them. Then they will grow up very quick, become very intelligent, and become very useful persons in the society. Then they will save you a lot of headaches. They will be very good, very brave. So, of course, it's very tiring to play with children, but you will learn to play with them. And they will learn from you. You learn patience and love from them - unconditional love. And then they will learn from your wisdom, your intelligence, your way of life.

So make yourself a shining example by learning yourself. Read books, learn new hobbies, be healthy, sportive, live a simple life, be truthful, be virtuous. Then the children cannot help but grow up the same way as you are.”
