Recently, there have been betrayers who chose to defend against Guru, who they should be indebted, by joining with untrustworthy proprietors from abroad. They eventually suffered the ultimate humiliation after many argumentative articles from Song Nguyen Tantra House. On the contrary, we have seen many good news which are social achievements from many Dharma brothers. To name a few, Mat Thai Xuyen has found a new “dream job”, Cao Dieu Hong Tuyen has warmed her winter in South Korea with a good job after the graduation, and 12 Dharma brothers from Quang Ninh shared a once-in-a-lifetime blessing to take refuge in the Three Jewels by Guru and officially became Guru’s disciples. They once accepted the possibility of losing money for the precious chance to take refuge, however, their flight was cancelled eventually and they were refunded all the ticket fees. It turned out that they have gained in both finance and Dharma. It can be seen to ordinary people that these incidents happened “accidentally”, but it is actually “absolutely” to the Buddhist practitioners who follow the right track of Dharma. That is not to mention many other social achievements of Dharma brother Cao Dieu Nhat Nguyen, Cao Dieu Bich Lien from the US, or Cao Dieu Mat Ba, Mat Phung from Phu Quoc all received good news after their argumentative writings against the wrong views published on the channel “Nhan qua luan hoi”. Their stories may be told by themselves in other articles.

In this article, I would like to share a spectacular story of Dharma brother Cao Dieu Mat Hai and me in New Zealand. This will once again prove the outcomes that happened as a result of the brilliant work of Song Nguyen Tantra House originated from raising the flag of fighting wrong view and building right view. It cannot be denied that even there are any wicked influences that tried their best to slander or harm Song Nguyen Tantra House with nonsense statements recently. 18 December 2020 was the last opening day of Whitireia Institution, New Zealand, Auckland campus which was also the most recent working place of Dharma brother Mat Hai. Under the impact of Covid19 pandemic, the school’s finances suffered tremendously; therefore, they had to narrow their business scope within the head quarter in Wellington, New Zealand. Two months earlier before the news had been informed, all the staff could not help being nervous thinking about their future as it has been very difficult for most people in the world under the pandemic. It is very hard to find a job, and now it becomes even more a challenge; while the number of unemployed still keeps increasing. It is a result of collective retribution that we cannot help sharing with all sentient beings, however, we had been lucky that thanks to the work in Whitireia during six months from February to October 2020, we still earned money enough to cover all expenses. Although many companies had to close down throughout 2 months of the first lockdown period and 1 month of the second period, Dharma brother Mat Hai still received full salary without having to go to work. Instead, he had time to relax leisurely, a blessing that came beyond our imagination.

Looking back to what has happened to our lives, it was such an arrangement that happened at the right time, exactly to each and every centimeter from Avalokiteshvara through Guru as a delivery channel. One year ago, we first came to this country and asked ourselves what would we do to make a living in a place where we were even not able to speak and comprehend the native language? After a thorough research, Dharma brother Mat Hai chose to study barista (bartender) at Whitireia because they offered an affordable tuition fee for the course. Moreover, this school is close to our accommodation, and it is a public institution of authority with proper training facilities. The school has one canteen that serves all internal staff and students, the only main person in charge of this canteen was Ms Helen Hong (New Zealand resident, with South Korean origin). As a learner at Whitireia, Dharma brother Mat Hai had the opportunity to practice his expertise in this canteen every week and he was given enthusiastic help by Ms. Helen Hong. Unexpectedly, after the course, Helen said her son happened to get a good job in Korea so she would reside in Korea with him and she appointed Mat Hai as her replacement. Mat Hai then started the job at Whitireia by that surprising incident. There was no relevant logic that can explain how an inexperienced bartender could undertake a job in which he could manage a workplace by himself, at one prestigious vocational school in Auckland.

With the colleagues at Whitireia

The other surprise that recently came once again gave us another experience of being supported by the Dharma guardian at the right time when we were in need, even though we are living in a foreign land with no strong financial backup. In the middle of “upcoming upheaval” that was supposed to happen soon because Whitireia in Auckland was about to close, there was one old friend who used to be barista teacher at Mat Hai’s school (she resigned right after his course) suddenly happened to meet him again at Whitireia due to her personal matter there. She was glad to see him again after a long time and got to know his situation. Then she mentioned that there was one cafeteria in her current workplace and asked Mat Hai to send her a CV if he wanted to apply for a slot. At that time, her school was also suspended because of Covid19 pandemic and there was no clear plan for the opening day. However, she promised she would definitely call Andy (Mat Hai’s English name in NZ) when the cafeteria opened again.

After finishing the contract at Whitireia in last October, Mat Hai was well-prepared to spend at least 1 month looking for a new job. It was out of his expectation that he received continuous calls for seasonal jobs from The Recruitment Network. He became even busier with jobs from all over Auckland; from conference, cultural or sport events, to private parties. Many of these places made special requests to the recruiter to call Andy for their events. I sometimes made a joke to him: “Wow, are you kind of a best-selling one?”. These kinds of jobs provided Mat Hai many interesting experiences. He might work in a cozy and hectic coffee shop in the urban city one day, then the next day he experienced the famous velodrome Hampton Downs, one day he worked at a luxurious suite within a stadium and could watch a rugby match there, the other day he were at a year-end party of a famous bank in New Zealand, etc. These jobs were also the reason that led him to have a permanent job in a very well-known nursing home in New Zealand.

Experience working at a stadium

That is one of the nursing homes that is subordinated to Metlifecare, a group whose business is to provide nursing service to old people. Last year, Mat Hai sent several applications to this nursing home and some other similar nursing homes as a casual worker, who worked for those shifts that permanent workers might be busy. However, there was absolutely no response from them. After visiting these places, we came to recognize that the permanent position in these companies seemed to be reserved for those who had a good connection with the staff; or the fact that they preferred to recruit native people. The working environment there is a lot more comfortable because the target audience is just the residents that are living in the nursing home. Their infrastructure and physical facilities are perfect, there is nothing different from a luxurious resort.

Metlifecare – The first day at

One day after working on a casual shift, the manager named Arti asked Mat Hai to work at the nursing home one more day. Then she asked if he wanted to work there permanently because they were in need of a bartender, café assistant. In the blink of an eye, Mat Hai went through the application scanning step and had an interview. It is even more surprising that Arti was the one who interviewed him. From what Mat Hai told me, on that day, she asked him continuously a list of questions. Sometimes when he encountered a difficult question and seemed to be “stuck”, she then gave him a hint to answer. She gave some illustrated examples for him to understand the situation and how to respond. Thanks to her, the interview was going smoothly. On the next day, the company asked Mat Hai to submit several papers, they checked references and finished the immigration checkup. On the first day of next Monday, he received a phone call with a bright tone that said “You’ve got the job!”. Just one week since he set his first footstep in Metlifecare, Mat Hai became the official worker on the first day of December 2020. Holding the contract in his hand, Mat Hai could not even judge the moment as reality or just a dream because everything happened all of a sudden. If this is not a miraculous illustration of blessing from Avalokiteshvara through Guru as a delivery channel, what can it be?

A job that is full of blessings

The cafeteria at Metlifecare

By our experiences, we came to understand more the affirmation of the Buddha and Buddhist teachers that even in time of “rice is precious like diamond, wood is equivalent to cinnamon”, we have been blessed and have never faced “starvation”. While Mat Hai was working for those places as mentioned, there was a “rain of delicate food” kept “falling” to us such as Italian pizza, Asian cuisines, Western cuisines, even my most favorite sweet croissant were provided freely by the workplace. We once again confirmed by our lives that the teachings from the Buddha and Buddhist teachers could never be wrong.

Being blessed with happiness in life! (Cao Dieu Mat Hai – Cao Dieu Mat Thuy)

For me, I also had many “sudden” surprises at work after contributing several argumentative articles recently. I have worked casually at a finance company 2 weeks every month. At the end of the year, the workload has become heavier, especially when we started to exchange to a new system for all the corporate. Therefore, I worked more often at the office. At the moment, I have been working more than half and a month continuously. A few days ago, Guru said that the company might provide me a permanent position in the future. The next day, I had a conversation with the chief and she said that as the company was recruiting a permanent position at the moment and she would like to offer it to me. I could not believe in my ears and wanted to check what I just heard. She then repeated clearly to me “I want to give it to you”. Wow, at that time I was amazed that Guru’s words had come true!

Wow, Guru’s words has become true!

With many good news coming at the same time at Song Nguyen Tantra House, we are even more proud keeping our chins up as we have seen spectacular outcomes from practicing Pure Mind Yoga that Guru has taught us and brought benefits to all sentient beings. These are obvious proofs that are putting a damper on those slanderous allegations that the betrayers and their accomplices had made. Thanks to them, we had precious chances to gain more merits from writing argumentative articles, while the readers comprehended clearly the evils’ schemes and true colors, they also understood the sinister plot of “The Foul Library” which was built just to benefit from donated money from Vietnamese and to satisfy the “editorial staff” personal shady political schemes.

We are proud keeping our chins up as we have seen how spectacular outcomes from practicing Pure Mind Yoga that Guru has taught us and brought benefits to all sentient beings.

I pray that they will soon receive the bad consequences as a result of cause and effect, so that they will terminate immediately their act of harming other sentient beings through spreading wrong views and rubbish articles on their “Foul Library” website.

I would like to express my ultimate gratitude to Guru who has been always raising the flag of nurturing the right view and saving all sentient beings from ignorance. Guru has given us the precious chance to practice Pure Mind Yoga to gain merits and success in our lives. May Guru have good health and longevity for the benefits of all sentient beings.

    Thank you so much for sharing this article entitled: “LETTER FROM NEW ZEALAND: IMPOSSIBLE TO REASON AND DISCUSS, BOAT WITHOUT A HARBOR, PREDESTINED DESTINY.” This is an excellent example of how proper Guru devotion and diligent practice can curve bad situations to our favor. Even in hard times we must stay vigilant in our practice. You and Cao Dieu Mat Hai have done exactly that and reaped the benefits! I am very happy to know that my Dharma brothers are doing well in New Zealand. May you have a blessed and peaceful day!

    Cao Dieu Mat Tu,
