Spoken by Supreme Master Ching Hai

Q: Is it necessary to pray before doing the meditation?
M: We can, but it's not necessary. Meditation is the deepest prayer through which you get anything you want. Anything that is good for your spiritual and physical well being will automatically come your way, whether you pray or don't pray for it. That's why the life of a Quan Yin practitioner is full of contentment and satisfaction - he wants nothing. The more he practices, the less he wants. The more he practices, the less he prays. Seek you first the kingdom of God, and all things shall be added unto you.
