TO HAVE DISTRACTING
      THOUGHTS DURING
      RECITATION IS A SIGN
      OF KARMIC OBSTACLES
      - RECITE MORE
      EIGHTY-EIGHT BUDDHAS
      GREAT REPENTANCE

Caller: Master Lu, we have an elderly lady dharma friend who has been practising Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door for several years.  She mentioned that previously when she performed recitations she seemed to have a lot of distracting thoughts, but now it seems that these thoughts have reduced.  When one has a lot of distracting thoughts during recitation, does it mean that the person has a lot of karmic obstacles? If that is the case, can we determine the level of our karmic obstacles by the amount of distracting thoughts we have during recitation?

Master Lu:  That’s right.  Generally, a person who is unable to calm his heart will have more distracting thoughts, and the more depressed a person is, the more karmic obstacles he has. 

Caller: If on some days we find that our distracting thoughts are particularly more than usual, does it mean that our karmic obstacles are more substantial, hence, we should recite more Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance?

Master Lu: Yes, that’s correct.

Master Jun Hong Lu’s Discourse 20160615 (Question 111)

IS IT APPROPRIATE TO
OFFER INCENSE TO
BODHISATTVA AND
ANCESTORS AT THE
SAME TIME?

Question: I have an altar at home where I enshrined Bodhisattva, deities and ancestors. Though I have always ensured I worship with utmost sincerity, I may have some wrongdoings which I may not be aware of, and in such case I seek the forgiveness of Bodhisattva.

At this moment, I have enshrined a portrait of Oriental Radio’s Guan Yin Bodhisattva. When I offer incense to Guan Yin Bodhisattva daily, can I offer incense to the deities and ancestors at the same time?

Answer: In the morning, you must first offer incense to Guan Yin Bodhisattva. Incense to ancestors is to be offered only after the oil lamp is put off.

SCHEDULE CAESAREAN
DATE TO BE ON THE
FIRST OR FIFTEENTH
DAY OF THE LUNAR
MONTHS

Caller: Nowadays, pregnant ladies can choose the date for their caesarean procedure. They would like to enquire if it is alright for them to choose the first and fifteenth day of the lunar months or Bodhisattvas' birthdays for the procedure?

Master Lu: Yes, they may do so. The first or fifteenth day of the lunar months are indeed the better choices.

Caller: What about scheduling it on Bodhisattva’s/Buddha’s birthdays?

Master Lu: This is rather “sensitive”. I would say the best dates remain as the first or fifteenth day of the lunar months.

LIFE LIBERATION PERFORMED AT ANY TIME OF THE DAY CAN BE VIEWED FROM HEAVEN

Caller: In accordance with Master’s teaching on the triple gems, one of our dharma brothers wishes to encourage everyone to be persistent in performing life liberation. However, due to the unique environmental condition at the place where they live, it is illegal to gather more than seven or eight people in a group. As a result, dharma brothers will go in smaller group at different interval. However, a few of the dharma brothers tend to be more tenacious and feel that it is more appropriate or auspicious to perform liberation only when the sun rise and reveal itself in the sky. Master, please enlighten us on this matter. When the sky is bright, is there any difference to perform liberation before or after the Sun is out? Would Bodhisattva and Dharma protectors know?

Master: Remember, there is only day in heaven. Therefore, regardless of the time you perform liberation, vision from the heaven will not be obstructed as there will be no darkness brought about by night fall.

Caller: Which means Bodhisattva would be able to know?

Master: Of course. In fact, the minute a thought surfaces in your mind, Bodhisattva would know. Not to mention when you are performing good deeds like life liberation.

HOW DO WE EFFECTIVELY REMOVE HATRED FROM OUR HEART

Caller: We have Dharma brothers who are diligent in their cultivation and have shown improvement in their behavioural conduct. However, the only hurdle which they have difficulty overcoming is removing the hatred that harboured within them. Due to their karmic debts, the sense of hatred kept recurring rapidly. May I ask Master how do we effectively remove hatred from our heart?

Master: Hatred stem from lack of wisdom. Try thinking, what are the causes for lack of wisdom? Attaining wisdom is dependent on compassion. Thus, the way to remove hatred is to be more compassionate.

Caller: I see.

Master: If you try to change your perspective and start observing a person’s weaknesses with a heart filled with compassion, do you think you will still hate him? For example, you hate a swindler for cheating your money. But think again, with the meagre amount of money he got from you, he will end up being apprehended, shot dead, or sentenced to jail for a few decades. Nowadays, there are many swindlers locked in jail. When they first cheated other people, the victims hated them too, isn’t it?

Caller: Yes.

Master: But it’s the end for the swindler as he will eventually pass on in the jail. At this juncture, try to imagine the swindler as your child, brother or sister. Their life is ruined for cheating that little sum of money. In this way, you will be able to untie many of the knots that formed within you. In addition, you will also treat the money lost as a lesson bought. As human, the only way to gain wisdom is to reach an understanding progressively.

Caller: Understand. Gratitude to Master.

Putting On Unsightly Clothes In A Dream Indicate Karma Is Heavy.

Caller: A fellow practitioner dreamt that other people told him that the clothes he wore looked awful. What does this mean?

Master Lu: If other people dreamt of his clothes looking ugly on him; that means that his karma is heavy. The clothes worn in the dream are used to represent his karmic debts. Well-dressed indicates that the karma is light, whereas unsightly outfits, like lifestyle habits, will leave a bad impression in others. Is this not your karma? People will love you when you display good habits, “Gosh, your outfit is so nice, I love this attire”. Is this not good lifestyle habits and is this not showing that you have lighter karma?
