(filler words) * And so we went out, Master Xian Chi went out and he did the Dharma, the Buddhist process to help with it. * And at the swimming pool where the baby drowned, her mother who came here, came here from Vietnam. (filler words) * For a split second, in her mind, she saw Guan Yin Bodhisattva and her baby very happy, smiling. * Okay. (filler words) * So, you can imagine how much pain it was, she was experiencing for that to happen. * And she came and she felt peaceful? * Yes? [Vietnamese] * Hmm. * That’s what she does. * Guan Yin Bodhisattva always comes to the rescue to relieve your pain and suffering. * So that happened because it’s not because she didn’t ask for Guan Yin Bodhisattva. * She wasn’t calling Guan Yin Bodhisattva but we practice Guan Yin Bodhisattva’s Dharma at this temple. * So wherever we go, we bring Guan Yin’s help along with it. * Okay. * That’s what we do.
