Remain Focused on the Saintly Path
Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai, Hsihu, Formosa, June 6, 1995 (Originally in English) Videotape #478
Stepping beyond human life to become a saintly being who is beneficial to the whole universe is the meaning of being a righteous person. That's the purpose—the only purpose. As long as you practice goodness and kindness, there will always be a negative power that tries to attack you, that tries to make you stray from your purpose and go in a different direction, to sidetrack you. So it takes a lot of determination and principles to control yourself, to check your way, to check your life so that you always go in the right direction without regret, without complaining when you don't get good results from it.
Because it's the challenge of this world that we always keep the way of God, we always keep the commandments of conscience. That's how we rise above all differences and all praise and blame to become a noble being.
