Reported by Association member from China (Originally in Chinese),
March Golden Year 13 (2016)
Aunt Ma passed away in early January 2015 at the age of 74, after being terminally ill for more than a year. Even toward the end of her life, Aunt Ma still was not willing to get emergency treatment at hospitals. She had been a vegan, had been practicing the Quan Yin Method of meditation for over 10 years, and she had great faith in Supreme Master Ching Hai. She knew what she should do, and what she wanted in the end. Therefore, she told her children that she would like to have our Association members take care of everything after she passed away. It was good that her children respected their mother’s wishes and made it possible for our Association members to meditate next to Aunt Ma until the end.
When Aunt Ma passed away, her youngest daughter, who had the most disagreement with her mother about her mother’s faith, saw two lotus flowers depart from her mother’s soul through her mother’s wisdom eye, and light bursting out from her mother’s right ear. She saw Quan Yin Bodhisattva come to take her mother away. Aunt Ma’s youngest daughter calmly told other relatives next to her mother that her mother had passed, and had been taken away by Quan Yin Bodhisattva. Only then did people realize that Aunt Ma, whose face was rosy and who looked like she was asleep, had passed away in peace.
On the day of cremation, Aunt’s Ma’s sister saw that the Heavenly gate was wide open, and Aunt Ma came down with many angels to bring all the remaining souls of those who were being cremated with them. Not a single soul of those who were being cremated that day fell into lower realms.
After Aunt Ma’s body was cremated, her children found over 20 relics in her ashes. As a result, her children’s sorrow disappeared. They felt very happy, and truly understood what it meant to be born into another world.
Aunt Ma’s family sincerely invited our local Association members to have a meal with them at a vegan restaurant to express their appreciation to our Association members for their care, for visiting when Aunt Ma was sick, and to thank them for meditating during the last few days of their mother’s life to say goodbye. Aunt Ma’s children also donated CNY 7,000 to offer vegan food to the homeless.
