*DREAMT ABOUT MESSAGES SENT FROM GUAN YIN BODHISATTVA RECITE THE THREE “PILLARS” OF SCRIPTURES FIRST THING IN THE MORNING TO LAY A SOLID FOUNDATION*

Caller: A Buddhist practitioner dreamt about messages sent from Guan Yin Bodhisattva compassionately: As soon as you wake up in the morning, perform your daily recitation and start with the Great Compassion Mantra, the Heart Sutra, and the Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance. Building these three pillars to lay a solid foundation. As for the other mantras, you can recite later or while traveling.

Master Jun Hong Lu: Exactly! As the saying goes, “A day’s plan starts with early morning”. You should perform recitation of the three “pillars” earnestly in the morning. It would be good if you could recite at least once when there wasn’t enough time.

Caller: Master Lu has mentioned previously that due to time constraints, we could recite part of the three “pillars” in the morning, then complete the recitation of the Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance after returning home in the evening, is that correct?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes, it is correct.

(Question 17)

*IN THE EVENT THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO COMPLETE OUR HOMEWORK FOR THE DAY, WHAT SHOULD WE DO?*

Question: Our daily Homework can be rather substantial. Is it allowable for us to recite part of a certain type of scriptures a day before and we complete the remaining respective scripture the next morning? Is there a difference if a person completes his Homework in two days as compared to completing it in a single day?

Answer: In fact, this is a common problem. In the past, if a person is unable to complete his Homework, feels unwell or slow in his recitation, then he will complete his remaining Homework during the morning session on the following day.

Number 1: No matter which type of Homework you are doing, it must be done wholeheartedly. If you are unable to complete it today, then complete it tomorrow. It is the same. There is no great difference. However, if you do have the energy to perform your recitation, I still hope that you will complete the recitation within the day, as this is the best. If you are unable to complete your seven types of homework, you may recite a few times of _Great Compassion Mantra_ and _Heart Sutra_. For example your Homework consists of twenty-one times of _Great Compassion Mantra_ and _Heart Sutra_, you may recite one time of _Great Compassion Mantra_ and _Heart Sutra_ respectively. As long as you recite, even for as minimum as one time, there will be a natural continuation. Please do not, for example, recite all of the _Great Compassion Mantra_ today and all of the _Heart Sutra_ the next day. This is not the way to do it. Every scripture must be recited, even if it is for a minimal amount. This is to ensure that there will be a continuation the next day for these seven types of Homework.

*A PERSON WHO GETS ANGRY OFTEN WILL HAVE A BAD AURA; CALMNESS AND COLLECTEDNESS DO WONDERS TO ONE’S HEALTH*

Caller: How substantial is my karmic obstacles now? Do I have poor aura?

Master Jun Hong Lu: You are doing very well now. Let me tell you specifically that you have improved and you are very different from the last time. In the past, you….getting angry often will have an adverse effect on one’s aura. When a person is calm and collected, it goes to show that he is very much even-tempered and his blood circulation and pressure are normal.

On the contrary, those with high blood sugar, high blood lipids and high blood pressure (The Three Highs) are those who are unable to calm themselves. Without inner tranquility, their temper will form a vicious cycle. The more frequent they lose their temper, the higher their blood pressure and blood sugar level will become. The higher their blood sugar level, the more hot-headed they will become. This is how the vicious cycle goes. Hence, if you feel that you are getting angry less often now, and you are more calm and collected, that is a sign of good health.

Caller: Thank you Master. I will take the teachings of Bodhisattva and Master seriously and be a better person.

Master Jun Hong Lu: Do work hard at it and be rest assured, I shall give you my blessings.

*KARMIC OBSTACLES CAN BE ELIMINATED IN BOTH GOOD AND BAD TIMES*

Caller: Master has ever mentioned that, karmic obstacles can be eliminated in both good and bad times. How do we explain that we are also able to eliminate karmic obstacles during good times?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Let me ask you, when you perform a lot of virtuous deeds, wouldn't that result in a smooth sailing path?

Caller: Yes, yes. How about in times of adversity?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Don't you think a temporary setback helps to eliminate your karmic obstacles?

Caller: I understand it now.

*PERFORM RECITATION DILIGENTLY WHILE IN GOOD HEALTH*

Caller: Some cancer patients encounter difficulties in performing recitation due to physical weakness, despite having a willing heart. In this case, how should they say their prayers to Guan Yin Bodhisattva, so that they can have the energy to recite Little Houses for themselves?

Master Jun Hong Lu: That’s impossible. This is the case where karmic debts have come into effect. You only pray for blessings after the eruption of your karmic debts: “My health is not good now and I am unable to perform recitation”. Why can’t you recite diligently when you were in good health? The thing is, you did not recite diligently when you were healthy, and that’s why you are suffering from a poor health now. This karmic eruption will definitely make it difficult for you to perform recitation, and not being able to perform recitation is, by itself, another form of karmic retribution. Therefore, you can only endure it as you are receiving your retribution.

*Q28: DESIRES AND DISTRACTING THOUGHTS WILL DEPLETE MERITS AND VIRTUES*

Q: As long as we wish for something, whether we pray for it or not, our merits and virtues will be expended. Does it mean that as soon as desires and distracting thoughts arise, our merits and virtues will be expended right away?  Hence, leakage of merits and virtues is relative to the amount of desires and distracting thoughts we have?

A:  Exactly!  This is a very good question, it shows that she is truly cultivating.  Mind you, as long as a distracting thought arises in your mind, your merits and virtues will start to dissipate.  Let me give you a simple example, when a thought like, “I think I will go rob a bank” arises, even if there is no action taken, would you consider yourself a good person?  Think about it, are you a good person or bad one?  Thus, do not let our thoughts run wild; as the slightest thought will deplete our merits and virtues.

*CONTROL YOUR ANGER*

In this world, no matter how intelligent, wealthy or powerful a person is, they will lack judgement when they are in a state of anger.  Let me share a tip with you – the next time you are outraged, when you think that “I must let it out!”, the best way is to wait for one minute.  This is because a person will lose all of his judgement when he is outraged, and this ability will only return to its normal state after one minute.

So, the next time you are at the verge of an argument with your spouse, look at your watch and do not say a word.  After one minute, put it down and you will say, “There is no way that I am going to fight with you.  I am a Buddhist practitioner, I have regained my senses”.

Please remember never make any major decision when you are in a state of outrage, as you will regret it for the rest of your life.
