chinghai2.gifOnce upon a time,
A true peace lover wandered around the many worlds
In search of eternal happiness.
She walked on the face of the Earth, the suns, the moons and the clouds.
At last she found,
That it was all the while hidden in her very heart.
Then she sat down,
And was about to enjoy the new-found Bliss,
But suddenly she looked down,
And saw countless beings were still groveling in darkness,
For they were searching for happiness without.
Just like her before, erring over millions of ages.
Her tears were then rolling down...
One drop, two drops...and many more...
Each drop became a shining jewel

And soon the sky was studded with glittering tears,
They are too shy in the day.

And too restless in the night to go to sleep.
 For all Truth aspirants,

The stars are there to light the Way,

And to remind them of the compassion of a holy Sage.

The Supreme Master Ching Hai's search for an enlightened Master, who could show Her the most direct path to God, took Her through over thirty countries during a period of some seven trying years. She visited numerous important spiritual sites and ashrams, always hoping to find the Master she perhaps intuitively realized was waiting for her.

master-himalayan1.gifShe eventually arrived in India, a land that has been graced with many great Masters over the centuries. In discussing Her travels in this mystical land, The Supreme Master Ching Hai commented that, "There are many spiritual practitioners in India who eat only one meal each day. They practice a number of methods rather than a selected one. Without a permanent home, they go everywhere on foot, searching for Masters and paths. They meditate every day, never forgetting to practice even for a minute during meals or sleep. They do not meditate briefly, just for one minute. You can imagine how terrific their inner power is. Some of them can walk on fire without getting burnt. However, these are only minor tricks that cannot lead to the ultimate level. It is more important to attain wisdom and liberation. We have tremendous latent power. If we practice well and have absolute faith in ourselves, nothing is beyond us." Her faith, selfless devotion and all-consuming passion to serve others is made apparent when She describes Her time at one of the many ashrams She visited. "When I had the time, I did anything that needed to be done. Since most people disliked chores, like washing dishes and scrubbing the floor, I did these jobs though office staff like us were usually exempt from laborious work. I was a quick worker, and if I found things strewn around everywhere when I had finished my office job, I promptly cleaned up the mess because I disliked untidiness. I knew how to put things back in order, so I could do it very fast."

master-himalayan2.gif"The more we work, the more enlightened we become. Frankly speaking, it gave me great joy to scrub the staircase and floor in India. I said to myself in jubilation, Oh! I am so honored to have the chance to clean the staircase for these saints. Their feet walk past this place every day; it's as though I am washing the feet of the saints. I felt highly honored! This thought was a spontaneous one; no one had taught me that. Merely washing the staircase trodden by the disciples was enough to make me feel so honored. How much more honored would I have felt had it been the staircase used by the Master? It is better for us to work unconditionally. Serve others, and all will be given unto you."

"During my times in the ashrams, I never clung around an enlightened Master or asked him to look at me while I worked. I only served. I scrubbed the staircase, cleaned the floor, watered the plants, and did things that no one else wanted to do. I washed the eating utensils because it was the last thing that people wanted to do. After each meal, eating and cooking utensils piled up like a mountain. Yet I found happiness in washing them every day."

master-himalayan3.gifAfter working tirelessly in many ashrams, Her truly remarkable search had its final chapter in the highest and most enigmatic mountain range in the world, the Himalayas, the place that for centuries Indians have believed is the abode of the gods. For this reason, millions of devout pilgrims venture into the Himalayas each year to visit the numerous sacred sites and perhaps meet with one of the rare enlightened beings that are said to live in seclusion in remote, secret caves. Sadly, many pilgrims die along the way due to severe weather conditions, landslides or the dangerous icy terrain. There are few conveniences, so some are even consumed by starvation. Fear prevents most pilgrims from venturing too far. Only an extremely rare being with unshakable faith in the Universal Power and tremendous courage would ignore the obvious dangers. When speaking about Her numerous Himalayan treks that took master-himalayan4.gifHer increasingly higher and deeper into the snow swept region, Suma Ching Hai said, "When I was in the Himalayas, I couldn't afford to hire a horse or a coolie. I had nothing, so I could only walk. Perhaps my continuous walking kept me warm. Otherwise, I would have frozen, as I was wearing wet clothes and shoes amid the rain and snow in the mountains. Some peaks were high and lofty, and looked awesome. I must have been as crazy then as couples who are madly in love, and oblivious to everything else. Lovers are blind to the risks and burden of marriage and family life, nor do they think about the future. They are enthralled by their amour for each other, and live only for that moment in time."

master-himalayan5.gif"However, God blesses idiots like me. When I was looking for an enlightened Master, I had only two sets of clothes, but I never caught a cold traversing the Himalayan trails. Sometimes, I couldn't even afford to buy firewood to dry my wet clothes, so I went near other people's campfires, holding them in my hands. The heat made my clothes dry faster and I could also warm myself. I must have been blind and "God-crazed". I probably wouldn't have dared to do it now."

"All I had on my mind then was God; and all I could see was God. There was no room for family or money. I was stupid enough, but nothing else could penetrate my mind because I had only God in my heart. It is like when we are in love, we are completely blind to the faults of our lover, and we refuse to listen to any unfavorable remarks against him. Probably that was why God gave me protection, or I would have died long ago."

The Supreme Master Ching Hai's devotion to God enabled Her to overcome the many hardships associated with traveling alone and the inhospitable mountainous environment that She experienced. "In some parts of the Himalayas, the low atmospheric pressure made it difficult to cook food well. I could only wash the food in the Ganges and eat it raw. It was delicious, though. The Himalayas is the most wonderful place. I could do without hot water. It was fun taking a cold dip. It was so cold that it felt as though my body had shrunk. I would count to 5, and then jump out from the ice-cold river. My body seemed to bloom then as thousands flowers and I felt so exalted." On what would be Her final trek into the abode of the gods, Suma Ching Hai began like She had often done before with only two sets of clothes, a pair of sports shoes, a sleeping bag, a water bottle, a couple of books and a walking stick. She was almost constantly wet and cold as She ascended ever higher. The further she went the more belongings She discarded to conserve energy. Having discarded virtually everything, She put Her life entirely into God's hands. All things come to those who seek God and God alone. So it was inevitable that one day She would find the Master She had incessantly yearned for. That Master was The Great Master Khuda Ji, who lived in seclusion deep in the Himalayas. Master Khuda Ji was four hundred and fifty years old when He initiated The Supreme Master Ching Hai into the ancient art of meditation on the heavenly Sound and divine Light. He had remained patiently in His Himalayan abode waiting for Her. She would be His first and only disciple. Although, She had practiced this form of meditation before, Master Khuda Ji was to impart to Her the ultimate spiritual transmission that is the essence of Initiation. Only the few great Masters, who have attained the Ultimate, can perform Initiation.

The Supreme Master Ching Hai rarely speaks about Master Khuda Ji, who left the physical realm soon after His noble mission was accomplished. She acknowledges all those who taught Her at each point during Her search but saves the highest accolade for God. "I had many Masters, both tangible and intangible, and each of them taught me different things. The truth is, God is my only enlightened Master." However, once when asked by one of Her initiates about Her great Himalayan Master, She said, "Oh, I followed an enlightened Master a very great one! However, He has passed away. He had only one disciple, that was me. And I must carry on His work."

master-himalayan6.gifThe Supreme Master Ching Hai stayed in the Himalayas for several months after Her experience with Master Khuda Ji, perfecting the ancient art of meditation. Despite the extreme conditions and many adversities, She felt strangely connected to this uniquely spiritual region, as She once said, "In the Himalayas, you could feel all the animals and plants giving forth a gentle and friendly ambiance. The sky was tranquil and boundless; the pine trees were very friendly. I lived at a high elevation and could feel the white clouds drifting around me. It was as though I was walking on the clouds. I didn't summon the clouds for me to ride; they came on their own. You may have seen paintings of people riding on clouds; that is exactly what I am trying to describe. It was not a celestial phenomenon; rather, it was a common scene in the Himalayas."

master-himalayan7.gifReturning to the plains, She visited one of the ashrams She had stayed at previously. While She sat innocuously reading a discarded newspaper, one of the ashram's most long-standing disciples, who had practiced under three successive Masters in the lineage, unreservedly performed a full-body prostration before Her in full view of all around, touching and even kissing Her feet. Of course, The Supreme Master Ching Hai was startled and overwhelmed, as She later explained. "That was not the first time we met; we had worked together for several months and had had tea together. However, he prostrated to me after I came back from my trip to the Himalayas. I was afraid that my ego might grow as tall as the hill! Like everyone around us then, I was really startled. I was so shocked that I couldn't think of anything. My mind went blank and couldn't give the incident a further thought. I only knew that I should leave." And so She did, immediately.

She tried desperately to remain inconspicuous as She traveled widely throughout India. However, Her sublime Inner Light was impossible to conceal.

No matter where she went people intuitively knew of Her spiritual greatness. She had no desire to attract followers; but no matter how many times She fled from those who found Her, they just kept coming. Finally, in Taiwan, just as had happened on other occasions in India, in New York City, and in other parts of the world, She was found by a group of spiritual seekers who were divinely guided to Her. At the time she was living anonymously behind a small, little-known temple. She was touched by their sincerity and realized that she could no longer avoid Her life's mission. The seekers sincerely sought initiation, so Suma Ching Hai eventually granted them, and so began Her public life as a Master.
