Greetings beautiful viewers! On today’s Enlightening Entertainment, we are delighted to present to you part 2 of the four-part spiritual drama, entitled “Love & Enmity,” which was adapted from the Buddhist story as told by Supreme Master Ching Hai and performed by our Association members from Taoyuan, Formosa (Taiwan).

Previously, the wise and compassionate King Longevity surrendered his kingdom to the neighboring King Wei Mu to avoid a war that may cost untold loss and suffering to his people. With a faithful servant, King Longevity, along with his son Prince Eternity, fled to the remote mountains…

Your Majesty, this cave is too small to accommodate us. Let us go in that direction.

Yes, we should find another suitable place.


Watch out!

Your Majesty, please take a rest. I will go and find some stream water for you to drink.

No need, Zhong Liang, I am very touched by your loyalty to me. But you still have a wife and kids to take care of, please go back.

Go back? Without the country, how can there be a home? I can only have a chance to recover my home if I can help Your Majesty go through this difficult time.

Zhong Liang, I’ve always known you are a good man. The Prince and I are under such a miserable situation, but you still take care of us so attentively. I am really grateful to you.

Your Majesty, this is just something I should do.

Let’s do this. This is a jade pendant I inherited from my father. I’ve kept it for years. Please take it and sell it and use the money to support your family.

No, no, Your Majesty, I cannot take it.

Zhong Liang, take it, take it. From the present situation, we can’t tell what will happen next… You can stop accompanying me from this point on.

Your Majesty, please don’t make me leave. Don’t make me leave, Your Majesty.


Zhong Liang, arise. Listen to me, the farther you are away from me, the better! Live a good life, all right?

Your Majesty and Your Highness, please take good care of yourselves!

Just go, Zhong Liang!

Father, it is so quiet in the mountain.

It is good to be quiet. It is good to be quiet and far away from the world. To live in such solitude makes me feel more at ease.

Father, we should go farther into the mountains.

Fine, fine. Let’s look for a place where we can stay.


Grandpa, where did they go? Did they find a place to stay?

They went to a deep mountain and found a cave near a waterfall so they decided to stay there.

Did they have things to eat?

The natural condition in the mountain was very good. There was fresh stream water and abundant sweet fruits. They just lived on these wild fruits and concentrated on spiritual practice in the mountain.

Father, Father, Father, I am back. Look at these wild fruits I picked. Please come and enjoy them.

Wow, so much fruit today.

What a good harvest. Look! What a tiny papaya. And this is…. guava. I remember that guava is your favorite fruit. And dates. See how big they are.


And today’s special – Basho bananas. It’s also your favorite fruit, right? Please take one, Father.

Sure. It’s so fragrant and sweet. My son, I didn’t know you can do so much. I am fortunate to have your help during the past year.

Father, it’s nothing! This is what I should do.

My son, we’ve been in the mountains for so long. Are you used to the life here now?

Father, I’m quite used to it. In the beginning, I still missed the palace, but now I feel much better.

That is good. I wonder how our people are doing. If I could have a chance to return…

My son, if you have a chance to go back, what would you do?

I want to take back our kingdom and govern it with good policies.

What good strategies do you have to govern a nation?

Good strategies for governing a nation? It’s said that to enrich a nation, the military needs to be strengthened first. Although I don’t like wars, I believe that we should have a powerful military for self defense. The Wei Mu Kingdom took advantage of our weak military power, and they knew that we did not even dare to fight back.

Do you mean that I didn’t know how to govern a nation?

I didn’t mean to criticize you. You had been diligent in governing the state, and you were benevolent toward the people. You always taught the people with compassion and love. You rarely punished them when a crime was committed. Yet, as time went by, people forgot how to fight in wars to protect themselves.

My son, to govern a country, it’s crucial to win people’s hearts. If you direct them to the right path, the country will be prosperous and peaceful! Otherwise, the powerful military would eventually become a harmful thing, like a vicious tiger equipped with wings! Then the people will suffer even more miseries. I hope you will be very, very careful!

Yes, I will always remember your teaching by heart.

Then I do not need to worry anymore!

Time flies in the mountains, and people age over time. In a blink of an eye, the father and the son had practiced spiritually in the mountain for many years. Although their life was tough, they were quite contented. Until one day…

What happened on the day?


It is so hot. Ah? How come there are people in this mountain? Hey, who are you?

Who am I? Well, who are you?

I am a woodcutter, and I got lost in the mountain. How is it that you live in such a remote mountain?

I, I…

You look so familiar. Where have I seen you before?

You can’t have. We don’t know each other. We’ve never met before.

Young man, you mistook me for someone else.

No, I can’t be wrong.

What do you mean?

That’s right! You are King Longevity.

No, I am just a hermit living in the mountains. How can I be the king? You mistook.

I cannot be wrong. Your portrait is posted all over the country. Whoever catches you will be rewarded abundantly.

One will be rewarded for catching me? Am I so valuable? Look at me, do I look like the king?

Yes, not only do you look like the one but also you are worth a lot of money. In addition, you are worth several hundred persons’ lives.

What do you mean? I will come down. Please explain to me in details.

People have worn their shoes out in search of you, but I found you by accident! Come down quickly! It is all your fault. The current king suspected that someone was hiding you, so he arrested a lot of people and tried to extract information with torture. He also promised that whoever turned you in would be richly rewarded.

How could that be? It is all my fault. I had victimized them all!

Move! Come with me! I am going to get my rewards.

Don’t touch me! Go away!

What? You dare not go back?

King Wei Mu, I already gave my kingdom to you. How could you still harm my people?

Hey! What are you thinking about? Let’s go!

Life is transient. I have this body today but tomorrow it will be decayed. I think I’d better go back with him so he can get his rewards and my people can be free from suffering.

Are you going or not?

Young man, you mean you will get rewards if you take me back?

Yes, many people are searching for you for the reward. This is my lucky day. Let’s go now!

If I go back with you, my people will be able to live peacefully. Okay, I’ll go with you.

You finally got the idea. This is what the King of Longevity should do. Okay, let’s go!

Wait. Are you literate?

Not much.

Let me write a few words.

Hey, hurry up, will you? Let’s go! It is not worth looking, hurry up! Hurry up. Let’s go. Let’s go.

Father! Father! Where did he go? Father? Why is a bundle of firewood here? Father? Father? Is he out there looking for fruit? Ah? “I am caught. You should stay and continue your spiritual practice.” Ah?! Father! Father! Father! O Lord! Why? Father!

You’ve just enjoyed part 2 of the 4-part drama series, “Love & Enmity,” performed by our Association members from Taoyuan, Formosa (Taiwan). During a 1993 gathering with our Association members in Pingtung, Formosa (Taiwan), Supreme Master Ching Hai remarked about the woodcutter’s behavior, explaining the spiritual side of the story.

He was really an ignorant being. Even that situation didn't touch him at all. Right? His vicious mind couldn't understand the heart of a spiritual practitioner. His greed for worldly fortune had blinded his eyes, and deprived him of human feelings. You see how scary worldly wealth and glory can be. They can make a person lose his human feelings.

Only for those who have a strong spiritual aspiration, who already see the world clearly, and who are awakened, will seek treasures beyond this world. This kind of people will voluntarily give up his worldly possessions. Right?

Or even if they are rich, they aren’t attached to their wealth.

So this is why many spiritual practitioners tell us not to rely on worldly fortune, social status, wealth and glory, because we might get attached to them.

Thank you for watching today’s Enlightening Entertainment. Please join us again next week on Friday and Saturday for part 3 and 4 of the spiritual drama, “Love & Enmity.” Now, please stay tuned to Supreme Master Television for Words of Wisdom, coming up next after Noteworthy News. May you and your loved ones be blessed with everlasting harmony.
