speaking of God or the Supreme Spirit, Master instructs us to use original
non-sexist terms to avoid the argument about whether God is a She or
She + He = Hes (as in Bless)
Her + Him = Hirm (as in Firm)
Hers + His = Hiers (as in Dear)
Example: When God wishes, Hes makes things happen according to Hiers
will to suit Hirmself.
As a creator of artistic designs as well as a spiritual teacher, Supreme
Master Ching Hai loves all expressions of inner beauty. It is for this
reason that She refers to Vietnam as "Au Lac" and Taiwan as
"Formosa." Au Lac is the ancient name of Vietnam and means
"happiness." And the name Formosa reflects more completely
the beauty of the island and its people. Master feels that using these
names bring spiritual elevation and luck to the land and its inhabitants.
