"God's Direct Contact," the "Supreme Master" Ching Hai

That is funny, and a valid point.

RickRoss, on the other hand, is a cult expert who is not trying to sell another set of superstitions as an alternative.

Unfortunately, he doesn't seem to have gathered much dirt on the Supreme Master yet, at his Website, though he does have a few articles.

Google has included Ching Hai's organization, the Tzu Chi Foundation, on their holiday donation list.

They probably think anything that pretends to be Buddhism is cool. I would have thought they would have done their due diligence.

Tzu Chi is not Ching Hai's association.

I'll second that, Tzu Chi is definitely not affiliated with Ching Hai.

There are many religions which, however silly or wrong-headed their beliefs, their adherents routinely live normal, happy lives.

The group following Supreme Master Ching Hai [Qinghai] is not one of those religions. Neither is Scientology.

My two cents.

Isn't this the same nut case group that are spreading all that vegan advertisement about the fact that the world can only be saved if we all become vegans?
I had a taxi driver hand out some crap about it to me once and I've seen people on the MRT handing out this shit and generally pester people about it...

There's actually a good case to be made for that. That said, I don't think they're the same people (I could be wrong, tho). In any event, I like meat way too much to be sucked into something like that.

Yes, and Tzu Chi is a world class org. Their hospital in Hualian saved my buddy's life after a totaly brutal surfing accident. He was there for 5 months, and did not have NHI. The charge?
Nothing, zip, nada. Because my friend owns a factory in Shanghai, he insisted on a large donation to the org. , but nice to know that they would take care of some surfer bum, if required.
They also helped out my wife and I when I was in the States having heart surgery. Mostly, they helped my wife, but it was support greatly appreicated.

I have never heard any bad shit related to the lady that founded Tzu Chi.
