1.学佛人只要好好的相信观世音菩萨,什么样的奇迹都能创造的。

台长告诉大家,信则有,不信则无,很多人现在还很可怜,因为他们不相信。台长经常跟众佛友讲,你们现在要学,学之后不但自己好还要走出去救人家,当每一个人都像你们这么好的时候,你们就是观世音菩萨的千手千眼。

2. 信即得度。你一相信马上就得到救度了,你不相信你就不能得到救度。所以很多西方教和佛教都是同一个道理。你看西方教经常讲“你信就得救”,就是你只要一相信你就得救了。跟佛教讲的一模一样啊,明白了吗?“一个念头,一个信心,可以改变人一生的命运。只要有自信心,感觉自己有最可靠的东西,最可靠的是观世音菩萨,相信观世音菩萨一定会帮助我的,你是不是有可靠了?用不着靠人家的,靠自己的信心,求人不如求己。

3. 记住一句话:修心灵法门的人,随时随地有奇迹发生——只要信,愿,行! 去年有一位师兄告诉我:她先生不幸查出癌症晚期,医生宣告她先生在世的日子已经进入倒数期。病情来势汹汹,家人亲友的心情全部笼罩在一片黑云当中。但是这位师兄就死心塌地的坚信观世音菩萨一定能够救她的先生脱离险境!相信台长师父一定会帮助她一家人免陷水深火热的灾难中。她立刻发愿要为先生在一年之内念1000小房子。当她的小房子念到700长的时候,先生的癌细胞经过医生检测完全不见了。这就是信、愿、行的神奇力量。

Words of Wisdom
by Master Junhong Lu,
12 February 2016

(Macau, Hong Kong)

BE DILIGENT & STEADFAST IN OUR CULTIVATION "

All that we have gained TODAY, are the results and fruits of our past cultivation;
Our achievements TOMORROW, be it good or bad shall start from our effort today.

What is the significance of a “NEW YEAR”? It is about discarding the past and rectifying our bad habits in order to become a brand “New” person. If a person does not embrace a new perspective in life, to change himself or to change his view of the society, he will continue to be stuck with his old perspective and his ignorant habits.

I hope all of you will cultivate diligently, live your life for sentient beings. As long as we are still alive, we must be diligent and steadfast in our practice. Do not wait for calamities to strike, as by then, it will all be too late.

QUARRELS ERUPT AFTER CONSUMING LIVE SEAFOOD

Male Listener : There is this phenomenon : Chinese New Year is a time for family get-togethers and celebrations. However, it is also the time when many animals and live sea creatures are perished. We observed many times before that in this festive period of eating and drinking, family disputes, in fact, fights oftentimes erupted. May I ask if this has direct relation with the animals and live seafood which were harmed by us?

Master Lu : This is a very good question! What you just said is 100% accurate! After consuming seafood, quarrels are bound to happen when one reaches home, as these perished animals will cling to the person due to the karmic knots that have been created.

Male Listener : Oh, I see.

Master Lu : Your observation is pretty sharp. Very good.

Male Listener : Thank you, Master. Good-bye.

RELATION BETWEEN WISDOM, VIRTUE AND KARMIC OBSTACLES

Male Listener : With regards to the relation between wisdom, virtue and karmic obstacles should we aim to eliminate our karmic obstacles or pray for wisdom first?

Master: In essence, wisdom grants you virtues, and it is virtues that eliminate your karmic obstacles. That is why you do not relate it in this manner. With wisdom, you will not commit anymore evil acts. Hence, your karmic obstacles will be eliminated at a faster pace. Without wisdom, the elimination process will be very slow. Without wisdom, you will have karmic obstacles. Where do karmic obstacles come from? They are from constant evil doings.

Buddhism in Plain Terms Vol. 1(sharing with disciples on the topic of supernatural power)

HOW TO CONTROL
OUTBURST OF BAD
TEMPER

Let me share with you today on “Ways to change your habitual outburst of bad temper”. The best method is of course, to perform recitation. The other method is to habitually think of the following phrases as soon as the first sign of an outburst is felt:

“I cannot allow this outburst, it is bad for my heart”
“My outburst will become a laughing stock to others”
“My outburst will deplete my virtues”, etc.

When you often think along this line, a habit is formed. When the next outburst is about to occur, this will become your "natural shield" preventing it from happening. In reality, all of you possess this "natural shield" only that it was not put into use.

For example, a husband often throws his temper at home, his wife would have already put up this "shield". No matter how bad the outburst is, she remained unperturbed. She thinks “What a pity man, he is suffering from another psychotic outbreak…” This phrase is her very own "natural shield".

It is about "being expressionless". There is no expression of sentiment, emotion. There is no form. In fact, it is all empty. There is no sensation of the existence of any being.

You will have to find a few convincing rationales that could liberate you and instill it within you. The moment you feel an outburst is about to happen, think about these phrases and it will become THE obstacle that stops you from any wrong move.

MASTER LU’S DISCOURSE ON “NON-SELF” AND “EQUINIMITY”

Male Listener : Master Lu, you mentioned in <<Buddhism in Plain Terms>> “Be free from all Thoughts and you will not generate any karma”. However, in our daily lives we are bound to generate numerous thoughts. When you mentioned “To be free from all Thoughts” do you mean to tell us that we should cultivate “Non-self” and Equanimity towards sentient beings? Please enlighten us.

Master Lu: That’s right. We need to cultivate Equanimity. As for “Non-Self”, it allows your thoughts to be filled with others. In contrast, if your thoughts are filled with nothing but yourself, would you still be able to think of others? There are some extremely selfish people, it is impossible for them to learn Dharma. There are also some who have lived to their ripe old age and still do not understand the essence of Dharma teachings. They may be learning Dharma from the books and at a very superficial level. As such, their knowledge serves only to “adorn” themselves.

There are people who have never claimed to know about the Dharma but when others see them, they command respect as they resemble Buddha. Just like many mothers who had never learned Dharma. They do not even know how to say “Amitofo” but all their deeds are that of the Bodhisattva. Their children say “my mom is as compassionate as Bodhisattva”. That’s all to it! (Yes, Master Lu, you mentioned that “all who aspire to become Buddha and Bodhisattva must set out to save sentient beings and to sincerely help those in our lives”). Yes, we have to extend our hands to others, without doing so you cannot be regarded as a “good person”. Think about it. If your neighbour’s house caught fire and you said “it has nothing to do with me, I didn’t cause you any distress. I have nothing to do with the fire in your house”. In this context, do you think you can be regarded as a “good” person? You are not, of course, am I right? (Yes, thank you for answering my question).

佛说十二因缘、三世因果,就是让大家知道不要去恨,不要去难过。

「你今天还在吃苦,你上辈子业障没消;如果你这辈子已经在享福了,你上辈子积了很多德」。

但是要记住,这个德会用完的。

做人要懂得今世造因,来世有果。我们今世造什么因?做好人,做菩萨,做善良人,我们来世做菩萨。我们上辈子做坏人了,我们这辈子就要难过和伤心,因为我们上辈子没做好,也没办法,这辈子只能受苦。

[CURLY LOOP]印度尼西亚·巴淡岛开示

众生在人间长期的生死轮回,早已忘记自己成佛的本性,受着人间的苦难并且造下了恶因。「佛陀知因果,救众生」。佛以身作则,以种种妙法引导众生,让我们离苦得乐,止恶向善,努力精进。《观世音菩萨》也是看到了我们在人间吃苦,但是我们又在不停地造业,菩萨用无上菩提甚深微妙法救度众生,所以我们要觉悟,要早日超脱六道轮回,回到天上父母亲的怀抱中。
