how to know god
Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai
Hsihu, Formosa, July 4, 1995
(Originally in English)
Q: Is there a written statement about how you know God or how you get to know God?
M: I'm afraid not, but there is a way you know God. I'm afraid there is not such a black and white thing that you can read and then know God, but there is a subtle empowerment. There is a subtle connection, as one torch to another lights up the potential of the torch, and then both will be alighted. Nothing is written, but there is a way to do it, and we call this kind of process "immediate enlightenment". When someone already has found the light, He can light your torch, too. It is so very simple. There's no need for spoken language. The more we speak, the less we can find Hirm. That's the problem. And you ask me for the name. I would like to give you one of Hiers names, but I'm afraid to create one more name; then we would fight more about which God is better. We have so many names already.
