Caller: Master, which mantra or sutra is better to be recited on board an aeroplane?

Master Jun Hong Lu: It’s fine to recite the _Great Compassion Mantra_, the _Heart Sutra_ or any other mantras or sutras while you are on board an aeroplane. That said, the recitation of the ten short mantras will tend to be more efficacious when you are flying due to the closer proximity with the Bodhisattvas in those mantras. 

When you recite the _Great Compassion Mantra_ and the _Heart Sutra_ on earth, Guan Yin Bodhisattva will descend. However, when you recite the ten short mantras on earth, the smaller Bodhisattvas in those short mantras may not be able to descend to bless you. 

There was a Buddhist friend who faced difficulties in finding his other half. For some reason, his relationship with a few ladies didn’t work out. 

He persisted in reciting _Da Ji Xiang Tian Nu Zhou_ every time he is on board a flight. There was once that he dozed off in the midst of his recitation and he dreamed of many celestial maidens. Interestingly, he found his other half in that trip through relative introduction and ended up in a marriage in a span of less than six months. 

Caller: Understood. Thank you Master for your guidance.

Caller: A Buddhist friend is asking if we happen to sneeze while performing recitation, do we have to start all over again?

Master Jun Hong Lu: It is best to continue reciting from the previous sentence in this case.

Caller: Just to patch up?

Master Jun Hong Lu: It is unpleasant to the ear. For example, your name is 'Zhou Xiang Xiang', if I call you 'Zhou -- Xiang -- achoo --', do you think this is respectful? Under such circumstances, we should readdress the full name, 'Zhou Xiang Xiang'. Therefore, it is alright to continue the recitation from the previous line.

Caller: This is also subject to whether we could remember where we left off before the interruption, otherwise we would have to start the recitation all over again, isn't it?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Exactly, start all over again. For short mantras, you must redo from scratch; for longer Buddhist scriptures, you may use your discretion under such circumstances.

Caller: That's true.

Master Jun Hong Lu: Look around to see if your home has too many objects that are of ‘Yin’ (negative) attributes, such as stainless steel items, glass, mirrors or objects that are sharp; some people even display swords in their homes. All of these items have ‘Yin’ attributes, and will leave you feeling cold. Glass is also of ‘Yin’ attribute, and it shatters very easily. Even knives should not be kept out in the home, and should instead be put away inside of a drawer after use.

Objects that have a heavy inherent negative energy field will have an adverse influence on your body, besides inciting arguments and damaging your wealth. This is especially true when looking at yourself in the mirror, where your image will be reflected in the Underworld. Therefore, mirrors are definitely not conducive to creating good feng shui.

Master Jun Hong Lu: Buddha once told us that we can only live in the present moment. He told us to live on this very day, at this very moment. We can never go back to yesterday, neither can we have tomorrow come to us in advance. To live in the present is to live your life today. Work hard today and you shall forget about your past sufferings; learn Buddhism today and so you shall gain happiness tomorrow.

Caller: Master Lu, you mentioned that “One is half way to achieving Buddhahood when he is able to guard himself from creating karma of speech”. May I ask if karma of speech includes making comments about others behind their back?

Master Jun Hong Lu: That’s for sure.

Caller: So, it means, regardless of whether the other party is in the right or wrong, we shouldn’t make judgements about them, is that right?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Unless your intention is to help him, only then you can make a comment about them. Otherwise, if you do so, you are generating negative energy. If your intention is to help him and you talk to him face-to-face, this is positive energy, and as such it is not considered as creating karma of speech. For example, I am ready to help a person today. How can I avoid commenting on him? Do you regard this as creating karma of speech, then? On the other hand, if I am not with the person concerned today but I made some sharp statements and talked behind his back, it is then considered to be creating karma of speech.

Master Jun Hong Lu: As winter approaches, many people are saying, “I would like to save people, but I’m worried that they might not believe in Buddhist teachings, or he is wicked. Instead of saving him, I might bear the consequences of his karmic debts and land myself in deep water.”

I would like to tell everyone this story that happened during a cold winter day.

A Buddhist monk and his disciple found a snake stiff and frozen with cold, lying beside the road. The monk would have liked to save the snake, but was stopped by his disciple who said, “Master, have you forgotten the story of the Farmer and the Snake? The monk replied, “Of course not.” “Then why do you still want to save it?” asked his disciple. The monk answered, “There are many ways to save the snake. I may not use the same way as the farmer did. I don’t necessarily have to put the snake in my arms in order to save it.” Soon after, the monk picked up some firewood and lit a fire beside the road, and the snake was gradually revived by the warmth. The monk said, “There are always multiple ways to perform good deeds. The same applies to how we introduce Buddhism to people, we have to adopt diversified methods for helping people.”

When we encounter an evil person, we should not hold ourselves back from doing good deeds for fear of bearing negative consequences. As Buddhist practitioners, we should instead choose our approach to introducing Buddhist teachings to all sentient beings wisely, so that we will not be penalised for our kind-heartedness. This is what the miraculous Dharma is about; an ingenious approach. It is wisdom that enables us to help more people to attain enlightenment.

(An Excerpt)


We should apply wholesome teachings to transform ourselves - whenever you are in a bad mood, recite the following:

7 times of the _Great Compassion Mantra_
7 times of the _Heart Sutra_
7 times of the _Xiao Zhai Ji Xiang Shen Zhou_ (Mantra to Disperse Calamities)

Doing this will effectively lift your mood, and save you from worries and distress.

Caller: Master, should someone, who suffers from neurodermatitis, make very targeted vow in terms of the recitation of the _Little Houses_ to be offered and the number of captive lives to be liberated?
Master Jun Hong Lu: This person must recite the _Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra_. All skin-related issues have to do with small foreign spirits. 

Caller: I see. Does the person need to recite this mantra continuously? How many times should one recite on a daily basis? 

Master Jun Hong Lu: Recite at least 59 times of the _Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra_. This should be supplemented with _Little Houses_. 

Caller: I understand. Does one need to make the vow to recite the _Little House_ in batches of 21 continuously?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes. That works.
Buddhism In Plain Terms
Volume 7 Chapter 30
An Excerpt


We see the material world with our two eyes; however, it is with our insight (wisdom-eye) that we see our own mind, conscience, compassion, inherent nature and Buddha-nature.

Why do you think I close my eyes when I read the Totem? Because with open eyes, one sees the actual world that is void, while with eyes closed, one sees the real world through the wisdom-eye.

In this world, if we see the world with our naked eyes, we will be like those who see through the lens of greed and lust, and those who yearn for wealth and status.

In fact, these pursuits are empty, faintly discernible, indefinite, and false nature of this world.

Master Jun Hong Lu: Human life on earth is influenced by magnetic field which carries a certain message and has a certain vibe to it. It is not something that is visible to our naked eyes, but it can be sensed. Sometimes you may get a type of feeling that certain people will be able to help you, and this induces you to be good to them. This is a type of instinctual feeling. 

From the perspective of modern science, it is the interplay of this tangible magnetic field and intangible vibes that help you gain resonance with things in life. As such, understanding feng shui is knowing that is related to one’s instinct about what is good and bad. Many people are well aware that certain thing will not do them any good, but they still press on and do it anyway, and end up in a big mess. On the flip side, there are others, who will immediately hold back, when they get a negative feeling; this is called wisdom.
