Report from Ireland
By the Dublin News Group (Originally
The Quan Yin Family
Brightens a Holistic Health Festival
[Cork] From Sept 16 -18, 2005,
Dublin and Cork initiates were blessed to participate in the Mind Body
Spirit Festival at the City Hall in Cork, Ireland’s second largest
city. During the event the practitioners felt delighted and grateful to
be able to share Master’s teachings and Method with the public.
The initiates’ simple yet elegant exhibit
was decorated in warm green and gold fabric and featured the theme “The
Key to A Happy Life through The Quan Yin Method of Meditation.”
A large portrait of Master was displayed as the booth’s focal point
so that many attendees were blessed through just a glance at Master’s
eyes. And to the right a picture of Master meditating in the lotus position
moved many viewers to express their happiness at its beauty and serenity.
However, what attracted visitors most powerfully
to the booth were the continuous showings of one of Master’s DVD
lectures with English subtitles. The spectators busily “read”
the lecture despite the noise of the Festival and were in awe of Master
and Her teachings, as though She were speaking to them in person. Some
guests returned to the stand repeatedly throughout the Festival to obtain
more of Master’s leaflets, books, videos, DVDs and CDs and to watch
more of Her lecture.
Throughout the event, the initiates also presented
three of Master’s lectures on a large screen projector in one of
the venue’s seminar rooms, and again the viewers were glued to the
screen, captivated by Her straightforward, logical observations.
After the video-lectures, many people expressed
an interest in learning the Convenient Method of meditation. Among them
was a man who came to the stand frequently to watch Master’s lecture,
and who had visited Her exhibits in past years but never showed an interest
in learning meditation. Finally this time he made an appointment to learn
the CM the following week. Then later that evening the initiates bumped
into him at a local vegetarian restaurant, where he was deeply engrossed
in reading Master’s sample booklet.
Another interesting incident occurred when across
from the Quan Yin booth a large group of people were waiting to hear their
fortunes from a famous psychic and clairvoyant, but while standing in
line the customers began watching Master’s lecture on the TV screen.
Very soon they came over to the stand to inquire about Master and meditation
and were surprised that the method of obtaining eternal liberation in
a single lifetime was taught free of charge, as some clairvoyants charge
50-100 euros (USD60-120) for a thirty minute session.
Through many such happy and surprising incidents,
the initiates felt greatly blessed and grateful to share our merciful
Master’s message with their compatriots. And throughout the 2005
Mind Body Spirit Festival it was abundantly clear that Master had elevated
human consciousness and the Irish people were noticeably more open minded
and receptive to spiritual information than ever before. Thus the experience
encouraged the practitioners to continue sharing Master’s teachings,
and through Her constant love and blessings they look forward to having
many new sisters and brothers join the eternally blessed and happy Quan
Yin family. ♥
