Radio Program Extract 137 Things we need to be cautious about while attending a funeral

2015-10-15

Wenda20131108  37:00   Things we need to be cautious about while attending a funeral

Female caller: If we have to attend a funeral, what are the things that we need to be cautious about?

Master Lu: Firstly, attending a funeral is not good. (But at times, we have to attend.) Then just attend!  In the past, we would have to “step across the ring of fire” and do not go straight home after attending a funeral. Nowadays, after the memorial service, it’s best not to head straight back home. Rather, you can stroll around the shopping centre. (Some elderly would suggest that we bring along some matchsticks or scissors with us when attending a funeral.) No, no, these items are used to fight with spirits, don’t do it. Wearing a Guan Yin Bodhisattva amulet will do, and you shall not fear. (Oh, you mean the amulet in the form of a card, or the one in the form of a pendant?) The pendant type of amulet will do. If you wear those pendant amulets blessed by Master Lu, you do not need to fear anymore wherever you go. (OK, can I put it in my pocket?) Yes, you can.

Metaphysics Q&A 156 – The order of recitation for Little Houses

2013-04-06

Q156: Hi Master Lu, there are four types of sutras and mantras included in the Little House. What is the best order to recite them?

A156:

The “Little House” consists of a combination of sutras and mantras. The order in which you recite the sutras and mantras for the Little House does not matter.According to the latest teachings of Guan Yin Bodhisattva, the best method to recite the Little House is to recite the Great Compassion Mantra (Ta Pei Chou) in sessions. You can start with reciting the Great Compassion Mantra 7 or more times, then recite another sutra or mantra. Each time before you recite a different sutra or mantra, you can recite theGreat Compassion Mantra another 3 times. At the end, you can complete the remaining number for the Great Compassion Mantra.For example:Great Compassion Mantra (Ta Pei Chou) 9 timesGreat Compassion Mantra 3 times, followed by Heart Sutra (Hsin Ching) 49 timesGreat Compassion Mantra 3 times, followed by Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra (Wang Sheng Chou) 84 timesGreat Compassion Mantra 3 times, followed by Sapta Atitabuddha Karasaniya Dharani (Chi Fo Mieh Tsui Chen Yan) 87 timesGreat Compassion Mantra 9 timesThis method of performing recitations ensures that the Little Houses are further enhanced with energy, as each Little House would effectively be bounded by the power of the Great Compassion Mantra. This way, the Little Houses would be more effective in terms of protection and blessings.While some people recite several Little Houses at the same time, others may take many sessions before they can complete the recitations for one Little House. You can adjust your method of recitations according to your own situation.In summary, it is best to begin and finish reciting each Little House with the Great Compassion Mantra. Before reciting a different sutra or mantra, it would also be best to start with reciting the Great Compassion Mantra. The Great Compassion Mantra recited can be counted as part of the Little House, or recited as extra recitations to enhance the effectiveness.It is alright if conditions do not allow you to perform recitations for the Little House in this way. It is most important that you perform recitations mindfully and sincerely. [emoji120][emoji120][emoji120]

WHAT IS CONSIDERED ‘TRUE CULTIVATION’

Male Listener: Master Lu, on the radio programs you often mentioned that there are many people practicing Dharma nowadays, but many are not truly cultivating. What is considered true cultivation? Is persistently performing recitation daily considered true cultivation?

Master Lu: Not necessary. Daily recitation is only a formality. A true Dharma cultivator will always emulate Bodhisattva’s thoughts, actions and speeches and allow them to govern their actions and apply them in their daily lives. That is considered true cultivation.

PRACTISING BUDDHISM IS ABLE TO CHANGE UP TO 70% OF A PERSON’S FATE & FORTUNE

Male Listener:  We are able to change our fate and fortune through practicing Buddhism. However, Master Lu, you mentioned before that some fates can not be changed at all. Can you tell me  to what extent practicing Buddhism can change a person’s destiny in terms of a percentage?

Master Lu: Up to 70% of a person’s life can be changed. I said  before that 70% of our lives is fate that is fixed, the other 30% is fortune. So why do I say that the 70%, which is fate, can be changed? That basically means  one’s fate can be changed completely!  Let me explain with an example. Once there was a renowned monk whose name I do not wish to state here. When he was young a fortune teller predicted that he would have a very difficult life with no one to depend on.  Upon learning this, his parents lost confidence in his upbringing. In those days the villagers held on strongly to such beliefs.  He was sent to a temple straightaway. Then his ill fate took a turn.  Had he not moved to the temple, he would have continued on his path of ill-fate. However, in the temple this was not the case. He led a happy life and made a lot of friends. As he aged and become a Grand Master, all of the young monks can be viewed as his children. His destiny and therefore  entire life had changed.  Have you ever read about “Liao-Fan’s Four Lessons”?

Male Listener: Yes.

Master Lu: It was predicted he would  only live to his 40s, yet  he lived to the ripe old age of 70 or 80.  It was  predicted he would be childless, yet he was blessed with countless offspring.  Is this not “change”?

Male Listener: That’s right.

Master Lu: For a person with no confidence, no change will ever take place. On the contrary, for a confident person, “change” is a norm; it is  common. For example, if someone says  that “you will be in  an car accident today”, you could  choose not to drive, couldn’t  you? If so, in that instant you have made a change, right?   If someone asked you,  ”why are you such a bad person?” and you choose to refrain from behaving  badly from then onwards, haven’t you made a change?

Male Listener: Yes, I understand. Thank you Master Lu for answering my question.
MASTER LU’S ANSWER TO A QUERY DURING DISCOURSE (78) 2015-11-29

Question: Will crossing over less people but doing more life liberations increase our merits and enlarge our heavenly lotuses.

Answer: Possible. Whoever goes up to heaven will not become an all rounded Bodhisattva. It depends on which area of merits is more prominent. Professionals with specialised knowledge will be more proficient but at the same time, he must also exemplify in other aspects. For example, some people are especially good at crossing over people either through generous donations, Dharma sharing or ‘ wu wei shi’ (disambiguation). If one donates generously but at the same time commits sins towards the Dharma, he will not be able to ascend to heaven and become a Bodhisattva.

听众:感恩师父,上次我还梦到天上的龙王在修我们心灵法门,在天上度人。
台长:看到了吗,这个是什么,你知道么?因为这个是观世音菩萨的法门,所以连欲界天、色界天哪,他们很多很多人想好的话,他们要成菩萨、成佛的话,他们也得修啊,因为他们是六道当中的众生啊,听得懂吗?以为到了天上就不修啦,所以我告诉你连龙王都在修啊!你们都不知道的,现在这个心灵法门在天界也是很有名很有名的,祂一个,在整个的天,因为祂有八万四千法门,祂并不是每个法门在天界都很流行,就像在人间一样的,并不是每一个法门全世界都知道,不是这样的。祂也是靠着你不停的度人,才会造成好的影响,而且每个菩萨给的一个好的法门,祂是这个概念,你明白了么?
听众:明白,感恩师父!
台长:这里边太有讲究了。太有讲究了
听众:我梦到龙王在天上度人,他度其他的仙人,然后仙人他手里拿着原来是其他的,不知道是经文、还是佛书的,然后一直看哪,看哪,看了好像好多好多年,然后这个龙王他拿着我们心灵法门的书,然后介绍给其他的仙人,都是天上的,然后我感觉,他就是给人家讲好像白话佛法,说是四圣谛还是四圣道,我没记清楚,然后还有两朵很漂亮的莲花,就像我们心灵法门的《白话佛法》还是《例说》上面,很漂亮的莲花两朵,然后其他仙人手里原来拿着其他的书,然后一听说是这么好,然后他们把自己手里的书放在其他地方,然后接过来咱们法门的书看。
台长:你看看,知道了么,六道都在转变哪,明白了么。好的东西永远流传,明白了么。你想想看,这个心灵法门爱国爱民啊,而且让更多的人能够离苦得乐啊,让更多人想得通啊,变得善良啊,那这个大方向怎么会错啊,对不对啊,观世音菩萨的慈悲,永远是我们学佛人的主题啊,对不对,多好啊!
听众:是,是,让人心和睦,让我们家庭越来越好
台长:所以很多人就算投到天上了他,他们照样能够学心灵法门,这还不懂啊。
听众:是的,是的,感恩师父,感恩菩萨!
台长:乖一点啦。自己投个女生,说明你已经做错很多事情了。这辈子要一世修成,下辈子不能再来了,再来苦死了。

RECITATION IS TO AWAKEN OUR INNATE BUDDHA-NATURE

Male Listener: Why does the practice of Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door require us to recite so many Buddhist scriptures? Is it to awaken our innate Buddha-nature?

Master Lu: Yes, what you just said is correct. Why do we need to recite so many Buddhist scriptures as part of the practice in Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door? It is to awaken our innate Buddha-nature. Without recitation, there is no communication with Bodhisattva. If you do not speak, how can you communicate with others? It is the same principle. Therefore, if you wish to communicate with Bodhisattva, performing recitations is essential. Buddhist scriptures are the spoken words of Bodhisattva, do you understand?

Male Listener: I understand and do not have any further questions. I wish Master a Happy Father’s Day.

Master Lu: Thank you. Goodbye.

【台长对冬至的开示 】请大家提醒大家,感恩管理员合十!

wenda20131213 45:17
女听众:师父去年也开示过冬至的问题,今年师父是否有新的开示?还是按照去年的开示做?
台长答:要记住,凡是冬至、清明和七月十五的中元节,一个月之前就会身体不舒服,经常会这里痛那里痛,经常会梦到亡人,经常会有心里想不通的感觉,实际上就说明你家的灵性已经来要了。所以冬至之前要多念经、多念小房子,在冬至祭拜的时候最好用水果和香,然后再给他烧小房子。桌子要稍微高一点,不能太低,也就是说亡人的像放在那里要稍微高一点,不能太低(明白了。其实跟去年差不多的,对吧?)对。

wenda20121021A 35:47 关于冬至注意事项
女听众:现在快要到冬至了,冬至的时候需要注意些什么,我们小房子是不是要用清明节版本比较好呢?
台长答:冬至的时候实际上跟清明节也差不多,主要是祭奠亡人,可以把亡人的照片拿出来供一供,烧个香,放点水果,然后主要是请亡人回来,你们给他烧小房子,这样的话呢,他直接能够拿到,平时你们烧小房子的时候,是要通过一些官吏的

wenda20131213 36:43 为什么冬至前人会不舒服
女听众:冬至马上要到了,我现在每天在家里念小房子,但是觉得浑身不舒服,感觉很累很累,这是什么原因啊?
台长答:完全正常,知道为什么吗?灵性提早一个月就放出来了。清明、七月十五、冬至都是提早一个月放出来,放出来之后他们就回家来找你们麻烦了。

wenda20151204 26:10 冬至最好念49张以上小房子给自己的要经者 男听众:师父,冬至期间一般最少念多少张小房子给自己的要经者?
台长答:一般冬至最好49张以上(好的,谢谢师父慈悲开示)
