"It is only through education and increasing the intelligence of the masses that we can have world peace.
As long as one is substantially connected to the higher soul, one remains whole and healthy.
The transmutation of sex energy is necessary for one's spiritual development.
No mastery of virtues means no spiritual development." -- Master Choa Kok Sui
"On a more basic level, all qigong is so simple yet powerful that many energy healers use Qigong to repair themselves from healer burnout."-- Taoist Master Michael Winn
"The most important thing is to practice Pan Gu Shengong and absorb more energy so that your life force and your immunity improve to a very high level. Then you don't need to worry." -- Pan Gu Shengong Master Ou Wen Wei
"To better the quality of qi, to improve the circulation, human hearts must open. Unconditional love is the key that unleases the power of qi. When the heart is open, immersed in the experience of love, the interflow of qi can take place making the qi work." -- Sheng Zhen Qigong Master Li Jun Feng
"Self-realization is realizing that the source of your individual dreams is the same as the mystical source of the big dream called life.
The more you help all the different parts of your being manifest their dreams, the more they will help you manifest yours." -- Qi Dao Master Lama Somananda Tantrapa
"The only way to escape suffering is to realize God, to have the vision of the Self." "Realization of God is possible only through a Guru." "See God In Each Other." -- Siddha Guru Baba Muktananda
"The root of meditation is the Guru's form; the root of worship is the Guru's feet; the root of mantra is the Guru's word; the root of liberation is the Guru's grace." - Guru Gita
"The Qigong healing method was formulated because there is no one perfect Qigong form or therapy that is a cure-all for every known disease.
Depending on how strong the spiritual Qi connection is to the higher soul, the 5 important keywords for Qigong practitioners and energy healers to remember when it comes to effective and safe Qi energy healing of self and others are replenish, activate, cleanse, energize, and balance." - Ricardo Serrano, R.Ac.
"Without meditation, your Qigong suffers Without Qigong, your meditation suffers Therefore, you need both meditation and Qigong to balance the Qi within the body." -- Ricardo B. Serrano, R.Ac.
"A system of medicine which denies or ignores its existence (Spirit) will be incomplete because it leaves out the most fundamental quality of human existence, the spiritual dimension.
The tissues which compose our physical form are fed not only by oxygen, glucose, and chemical nutrients, but also by higher vibrational energies which endow the physical form with the properties of life and creative expression." -- Richard Gerber, M.D., excerpts from Vibrational Medicine
"When you have a disease, do not try to cure it. Find your center and you will be healed.
There are some things that can be sensed but not explained in words." -- Taoist proverbs
Affirmation of the SoulI am the Soul. I am Divine. I am a Child of God. I am a vessel of Divine Light, Divine Love
& Divine Power. I am a vessel of abundance; material &
spiritual. I attract and radiate health, wealth &
success. I am the epitome of health: physical,
mental, emotional & spiritual. I am the Soul. I AM THAT I AM.
The affirmation above is based on one taught by Grand Master of Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga, Master Choa Kok Sui. This has proven a most useful and worthwhile affirmation for building up of the self - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Those experiencing crises such as depression, anxiety, or financial difficulty are encouraged to recite this affirmation three times a day for as long as necessary. Thereafter, once a day may be enough.
GUIDELINES FOR SELECTING QIGONG HEALERS OR MASTERS In view of the fact that there is no recognized certificate or licensing system for Qigong healers or Qigong masters in the U.S., Canada nor in China, the Qigong Institute has developed the following guidelines to select the appropriate Qigong healers or masters. In general, a good Qigong healer or master should meet at least three of the following seven criteria:
A specially invited member or director of the Chinese Society of Qigong Science (about 1000+ of such members existing in China who have been officially evaluated by the Society).
A recorded history of scientific research (with published paper(s) or certified report(s)).
A member of the national or international professional Qigong organization(s).
A formal disciple of the traceable and renowned Qigong master or Qigong tradition, such as lineage holder or representative of a special form.
A solid medical training or background, and preferably belonging to some kind of national organization of medical practitioners.
Does not currently have any verifiable negative claim against him/her in the field.
Have an established Qigong healing practice in this country (Some may be visitors with similar qualifications in their home country).
NOTE: Qigong Healer Ricardo B. Serrano, R.Ac. with his Qigong Healing Method® and Qigong teachers meet all seven criterias above.
To the Universal Supreme Being, To Amitabha Buddha, To Buddha Sakyamuni, To Buddha Kuan Yin (Buddha Avalokiteshvara), To Boddhisattva Mei Ling (Boddhisattva Padmasambhava), To all the Great Buddhas and Boddhisattvas, To all the Spiritual Teachers and Spiritual Helpers, Thank you for the blessings of compassionate, purifying light and soothing healing energy. Thank you for the divine guidance, help and protection.
When you do meditations, you have to practice character building. Without it, there is a tendency to become worse...
During prayer or meditation, the spiritual cord becomes big. Every time a person breaks the virtues, the connection becomes thinner. When you do what you are supposed to do, the spiritual cord becomes bigger. Every time you refrain from unwholesome action, the connection with your higher Buddha nature increases. - Master Choa Kok Sui
BODHICITTA - "Awakened heart/mind." The union of three supreme qualities - love, compassion, and wisdom - which naturally express themselves as the wish to attain enlightenment for the sake of all sentient beings. Also called "Buddha mind," bodhicitta constitutes the essential experience of the Buddha nature as well as the very means of realizing it. It is the true nature of the mind.
BODHISATTVA, or "Awakened being." Bodhisattvas are dedicated toward a single goal, of freeing all sentient beings from suffering. Spared from automatic rebirth as a result of achieving enlightenment in a previous life, bodhisattvas voluntarily return as humans only to serve.
Daka / Dakini (S): "Sky-Dancer." In Tibetan, "pawo // khadro." kha: sky and dro: to go. Daka is male. pawo in Tibetan.; dakini, is female. Dakinis are female beings that travel in space, and are linked with giving birth to the full range of expansive potentialities. In Vajrayana Buddhism, the inspiring power of awakening consciousness; female wisdom holder. These are accomplished female spirits who have attained the Clear Light and assist practitioners in removing physical hindrances and spiritual obstacles. They are companions of Buddhas and meditators who can transmit special understanding when the recipient is properly prepared. Usually depicted in the iconography as a wrathful naked female. As a semi-wrathful or wrathful "yidam," the dakini has the task of integrating the powers liberated by the practitioner in the process of visualization (sadhana) and in response, grants the four enlightened dakini actions of pacifying, enriching, magnetizing and subjugating. In Tibetan, "Kha" means "celestial space" or "emptiness" (sunyata becoming an image). "Dro" indicates a sentient being moving about or dancing. "Ma" indicates the feminine gender in substantive form. Thus the "khadroma" is a female figure that moves on the highest level of reality; her nakedness symbolizing knowledge of truth unveiled. The homeland of the dakinis is said to be the mystic realm of Orgyen. There are many different types of dakini: wisdom dakinis, activity dakinis, and mundane dakinis, unenlightened and enlightened dakinis. An example of a worldly unenlightened dakini is a human practitioner that has accomplished some insight but who is not yet released from her suffering.
Enlightened dakinis are Wisdom Dakinis, and have passed beyond sorrow into liberation such as Yeshe Tsogyal, Madarava or any of the consorts of the five Dhyani Buddhas such as Mamaki or Tara. The absolute wisdom dakini is the empty quality of luminous wakefulness. On the relative level, the five aggregates of perception (S. skandhas/T. Phung-po nga) are the male aspect, while the elements of earth, water, fire, air and space are the female qualities. On the absolute level, the males are the subjective end of skiffull means and compassionate activity while the females are the wisdom realizing emptiness, the timeless, serene expanse of objective suchness. Thus the great mother of dharmakaya, Prajnaparamita, is the source of all buddhas and dakinis. Dakinis are born in three manners, spontaneously, in heaven realms, or through the power of mantra. They are a guiding light along the path removing physical and spiritual hindrances, awakening dormant spiritual impulses. Embodying the inseperability of bliss/emptiness and ego-annihilating wisdom, dakinis can appear in many different ways and forms, some of them quite outrageous or extremely repulsive in order to arrest conceptual thinking and wrong perception.
