Master Jun Hong Lu: A happy life is a simple life. We have to learn contentment, tolerance, magnanimity and not to complicate things unnecessarily. When we find ourselves to be spiritually burdened, we tend to impute all faults and blame on others. Therefore, it is essential for us to periodically erase those bad and unpleasant memories that we have been holding on to. Life is short, do not be attached to fame or wealth. Live a life of simplicity - this is true cultivation.

Buddhists must never forget the kindness of others, never bear any grudge against others, never think of the mistakes of others, and give no thought to the resentment of

Guan Yin Bodhisattva will be touched by our sincerity and diligence.
Guan Yin Bodhisattva always smiles at us like a mother, but deep in Her heart, She is worried about the ignorance of sentient beings.

Master Jun Hong Lu: Imagine that a husband and wife have been quarrelling for quite some time. One asks, _“Why are you picking a fight with me today?”_

The other one says, _“Because of something you just said”._
_“When did I say this?”_
_“You don’t even know what you just said?”_
_“You don’t even want to admit what you just said?”_
_“When did I say this?”_

People sow many negative karmic ‘causes’ like these due to their ignorance; not realising that these have negative impacts on their future and career.

I have always told you that our greatest enemy is ourselves. To correct our shortcomings is to conquer ourselves. Only then, we can overcome all difficulties and pains in life.

Remember, your job is not to conquer others but to conquer yourself! You won’t be troubled by affliction or suffering, once you are able to do so.

For example, it is normal to get angry when others yell at you. However, if you are able to take control of your temper by telling yourself, _“I mustn’t get angry because if I do, I am the one who will suffer. He can slander me all he likes, I know well I’m not like what he claims I am, so it doesn’t matter”._ This is how you conquer yourself.

What is compassion?
Compassionate are those who can put themselves in other people's shoes.

Master Jun Hong Lu:
We live in agony because we care too much; we hurt ourselves and others because we are filled with doubt. Take things lightly and we will live life happily; learn to let go and we will gain wisdom. After all, we exist as mere visitors in heaven and earth — our relationships with all matters in the world are entirely governed by the law of causality and the affairs of our youth are lost in the past. Hence, the Buddhist mentality of letting go is about understanding the law of causality and having the ability to accord with all conditions.

Master Jun Hong Lu: In Buddhism, loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy and equanimity are known as the Four Boundless States.

To constantly think about the suffering of others is known as loving-kindness. Compassion is to feel the suffering of others. To give others strength and help them with a joyful heart is known as empathetic joy. Equanimity is to dedicate your time, wealth or even your life to helping others.

When you see me, your Master, giving my all to perform totem reading, propagate the dharma and spiritually awaken others, am I not dedicating my life to helping others?

Many people say that Master has aged so much in recent years. Isn’t this the element of ‘equanimity’ within the Four Boundless States?

By forgoing monetary gain and not marketing for sponsorships, I now commit all of my time to save others, even at the cost of my life. That’s the essence of the Four Boundless States.

When you attain the Four Boundless States, you can reach a very high level in heaven, which is the Buddha realm. Herein lies the significance of cultivating the Four Boundless States. We must therefore persevere with our cultivation of the Four Boundless States.

Master Jun Hong Lu: In learning Buddhism, we should treat people with a sense of equanimity. What is equanimity?

It is to see everyone as equal and we do things fairly.

Equanimity is equivalent to the Four Boundless States: loving-kindness, compassion, empathetic joy and equanimity.

Equanimity is a sense of non-attachment, where there is nothing to compare, nothing that can make me angry or jealous, and nothing that I cannot let go of.
