“As long as there are people who practice Buddhism properly, the world will never be devoid of Arahants. Mac Chee Kaew was a shining example of this truth, a present-day arahant of rare virtue.
The cleansing effect that the pure mind of the arahant exceeds the body’s material elements. The intrinsic level of Samadhi that an arahant maintains throughout all daily activities works steadily to cleanse those basic elements until they too become purified. That purifying action results in a transmutation of ordinary bone into crystalline relics after they pass away.
The extraordinary beauty and brilliance of Mae Chee Kaew’s bone relics were often cited as proof. She was indeed an Arya Savika, a genuine daughter of the Lord Buddha.”
“ When I went to the monastery as a young girl, I had to be accompanied by my parents, and I wasn’t allowed to mingle with the monks. While listening to the monks discuss Dhamma, I sat way in the back, just within earshot. The venerable meditation master taught us how to pay homage to the Buddha and how to praise his virtues with chanting. He encouraged us to radiate loving Kindness to all living beings, and to always be open-hearted and generous. We were as lay supporters, the virtue of that generosity could not compare with the virtue of ordaining as a white-robed nun and earnestly practicing the way to end all suffering. That message always remained close to my heart”
