There are not many fellow initiates in Peru; but those who are there support Master's teachings very much, especially the many would-be initiates who are still practicing the Convenient Method. They have already felt that Master's love is always taking care of them.
When the Quan Yin messenger arrived in Peru, fellow initiates enthusiastically arranged several TV seminars. The people of Peru are pure and simple, and it seems that Peruvians have long been ready to accept Master's teachings. In addition, fellow initiates from Argentina joined in this activity. The entire activity, through Master's blessing, was carried out as smoothly as though God had conducted Hirmself.
Two of the seminars were held in Lima's City Hall. The mayor, Mr. Fernado Andrade Carmona, has been a vegetarian since childhood. After reading Master's sample booklet, he immediately granted us an interview, requested information on Master, and said that he and his people would be greatly honored if Master personally came to visit Peru. In addition, when he learned that we needed a large-screen TV for the upcoming seminars, he tried his best to help us acquire it.
On another occasion, the arrangement was even more wonderful. There was no translator with us when we tried to contact the people in authority. However, when we met another mayor, a member of the Municipal Council, Mr. Luis Rafael Vargas Quintanilla, stepped into her office at the same time and voluntarily translated for us. After the interview, he went with us to the Center to learn more about Master and Her teachings. While watching the video tape "The Mystery of the World Beyond," he was deeply attracted by Master's simple and elegant bearing. When Master explained the different spiritual levels beyond this world, he felt that his spirit was uplifted. He went into a kind of samadhi state, remaining like that for the whole day. This was an experience that he had never had before.
This gentleman had practiced spiritually on his own for almost twenty years. He also went to India to visit many masters, and studied many different philosophies. Last year, he realized that he needed a spiritual guide. The morning after he translated for us, he asked his servant to prepare vegetarian food for him. With Master's blessing, from that day on, he naturally and effortlessly became a vegetarian. Master's power works endlessly, invisibly helping and leading ready souls to find the path to the Truth.
During this period, when the TV lectures were being broadcasted, several radio stations invited us to have interviews on their programs. They also broadcasted the seminar schedule. An anchorman from one of these programs, "Radio Miraflores," was very serious. Before the interviews he carefully, and in detail, inquired about and understood Master's teachings with his own profound and perceptive insight, which enabled him to successfully introduce Master's teachings to the public.
A lady heard about Master's name and God's message conveyed by Her on a local radio program (Radio la Cronica). She was very moved and called the radio station immediately to express her gratitude. She thanked Master for spreading the good news to such a remote area.
At Radio National, several of the anchor- people had been practicing the Convenient Method. Upon hearing that the Quan Yin messenger had arrived in Peru, they invited us to introduce Master's teachings. Right then and there, as we went for the interview, many people registered to learn the Convenient Method, and at the same time, interviewed us.
The response to these seminars was very good; at the last seminar, there were no empty seats. Some brought their family members, and some physically disabled people even came to the venue in wheelchairs. Others received the news about this activity through radio and immediately and earnestly wished to learn the meditation.
Several days prior to attending the seminar, when she looked at herself in the mirror, one lady saw an intensely strong light like sunshine appear in front of her chest. In the center of the light she saw the image of a little oriental lady who was moving around and continuously changing her clothing and hats. While moving in a very elegant manner, the lady smiled at her.
At the seminar, as she watched Master's video tape, she came to realize that Master was the oriental lady she had seen. She immediately affirmed Master's power, and requested to learn the Convenient Method.
After the seminar, many people applied for initiation and to practice the Convenient Method. For the next several days, people kept calling us to learn the Convenient Method and to inquire about Master's teachings. When practicing the Convenient Method, some saw light and some heard the inner sound stream which they mistook for music being played; they later inquired about purchasing tapes of this music.
A reporter and program producer from Channel 5 TV in Lima had been a vegetarian and practiced meditation for many years. As soon as he acquired a sample booklet from a friend, he immediately contacted us. He hoped that Master's spiritual teachings could be spread via the mass media and hoped Master would soon come to Peru.
There are too many stories and too much feedback to be recounted here. The souls of the Peruvian countrymen have been nourished by Master's love and we believe that the spiritual civilization of this ancient Inca empire will restore its brilliance.
