Supreme Master Ching Hai
In the eyes of countless people who have met Supreme Master Ching Hai, the Supreme Master is the embodiment of Love!
A renowned humanitarian, artist and spiritual visionary, Her love and assistance have extended beyond all cultural and racial boundaries to millions of people around the world, including the needy and homeless, institutions of medical research, the disadvantaged elderly, the physically and mentally handicapped, refugees, and victims of natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods and fires. She always gives selflessly whenever people are in need.
Through these works, we witness countless reminders of compassion, which is the defining quality of this caring lady and the international organization that has grown out of Her loving example.
Supreme Master Ching Hai was born in central Aulac. During Her early years, She was often found providing help and comfort to hospital patients and the needy. As a young adult, She moved to Europe to study and continued there as a volunteer nurse and translator for the Red Cross. She soon discovered that pain and suffering exist in all cultures and in all corners of the globe, and Her search for the remedy for these ills became the foremost goal in Her life.
Supreme Master Ching Hai was happily married for a time to a German doctor, and although it was an extremely difficult decision for both of them, because of Her noble ideal, Her husband agreed to a separation. She then embarked on a journey in search of spiritual understanding.
After a long journey, She finally found an enlightened Master, in the deepest reaches of the Himalayas in India, who imparted to Her the Quan Yin Method, a meditation technique that contemplates on the inner light and sound. After a period of practice, She became fully enlightened.
“You have to have time for yourself, to think, to be yourself again,
to be within yourself, to develop your inner quality,
to remember your inner quality – to be like an artist, like a very leisurely person,
very loving, stress free, then you can give.
If you don’t know pleasure, you can’t give pleasure;
if you don’t have peace, you can’t give peace.
Supreme Master Ching Hai
Soon after Her return from the Himalayas, at the earnest requests of many people, Surpeme Master Ching Hai began sharing the Quan Yin Method with those who longed for the truth, encouraging them to look within to find their own greatness.
People from all walks of life found that through the Quan Yin Method of meditation, they attained greater fulfillment, happiness, and peace in their daily lives. Before long, invitations arrived from the United States, Europe, Asia, and South America as well as the United Nations, beseeching Supreme Master Ching Hai to conduct public lectures and impart the Quan Yin Method.
“Whatever we can share, we begin with sharing.
Then we'll feel a subtle change within ourselves - more love will be pouring into our consciousness,
and that is the beginning.
We are here to learn, to learn to grow as well as to learn to use our power,
our limitless power of love and creativity,
to make the world a better place wherever we happen to be."
Supreme Master Ching Hai
As well as being a noble example of humanitarian aid, Supreme Master Ching Hai also encourages people to beautify the world we live in.
Through meditating with the Quan Yin Method, Supreme Master Ching Hai has realized many latent talents that She expresses through artistic paintings and creations, music and poetry, and aesthetic jewelry and dress designs. These works of art imbue inspiration from Heaven into everyday life.
In 1995, by public demand, Her clothing creations were exhibited on the international fashion circuit, including London, Paris, Milan, and New York. Sales from Her artistic endeavors have enabled Supreme Master Ching Hai to create an independent source of funding for humanitarian activities, highlighting Her pragmatic view that we should use our own power to help others.
Although She does not seek acknowledgment of any kind, in recognition of Her selfless assistance, Supreme Master Ching Hai has received numerous awards from government officials and private organizations around the world, including: The World Peace Award, The World Spiritual Leadership Award, Award for Promotion of Human Rights, the World Citizen Humanitarian Award, and the Award for Outstanding Public Service to Humankind.
She brings love around the world where there is hate.
She brings hope where there is despair.
And, She brings understanding where there is misunderstanding.
She is the light of a great person, an angel of mercy for all of us.
