*DO NOT HARP ON PAST MISTAKES WHICH YOU HAD REPENTED UPON TO PREVENT IGNITING YOUR KARMIC OBSTACLES*

Caller: I have an inquiry with regards to my Medicare card. Earlier, someone obtained medication using my Medicare card. Although this happened before I joined the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, but I can’t help blaming myself for the mistake. The person had subsequently chalked up a bill of over five thousand dollars, of which, two thousand dollars are under my account. I told myself that I am willing to forgo the sum of money as I knew it was wrong to abuse the privilege. I regretted my action and had repented and changed. In fact, I had given him the entire five thousand dollars.

Master Lu: It’s good that you have changed. After you had changed, do not harp on the matter further. Understand?

Caller: Yes.

Master Lu: If you continue to harp on it, you will ignite your karmic obstacles. There are many ignorant people who keep bringing up the mistakes they made in the past and ignited their karmic obstacles as a result. You can only briefly recollect when you are reciting the *_Eighty-Eight Buddhas Great Repentance._* Other than that, leave the matter behind and stop thinking about it. Understand?

Caller: Yes. I have gained the knowledge.

*THINGS TO NOTE ON GUAN YIN BODHISATTVA’S ENLIGHTENMENT DAY*

Master Lu:
It was extremely hard on Guan Yin Bodhisattva to come to earth to save all sentient beings. On the following month, July 26 or 19th day of the sixth month in the lunar calendar, is the Guan Yin Bodhisattva’s Enlightenment day. On the day, all Dharma practitioners will celebrate and rejoice in togetherness. The heavenly world will also immerse in joy and thus, many Bodhisattvas will descend to earth.

Therefore, on the blissful day, I hope every one of you will offer your prayers and ask for blessings in the morning, after showering and cleansing your body. It would be ideal if you could devote all your time to perform recitations, make vows incessantly and be a vegetarian.

On the joyous day, all the Dharma protectors and Bodhisattvas will be here on earth and every virtuous deed that you perform will be recorded in the book of merits by the Bodhisattvas. Hence, you should go beyond and perform more virtuous and meritorious deeds as compared with what you have already been doing.

Many people are unaware that you will feel a differentiated sense of connection as the Dharma joy and supreme magnetism field are being transcended to mankind, through the great compassion of Guan Yin Bodhisattva.

*MEETING SESSION WITH HONG KONG WORLD DHARMA FRIENDS ON JULY 6, 2016*

Question 10: Activation of Individual Karmic Obstacles: Does it lead to the eruption of shared karma within the family?

Question: Does it lead to the eruption of shared karma within the family when an individual’s negative karma is being triggered? If someone in the family diligently eliminates his negative karmic debts, will it also clear some of the negative karma within the family members?

Master Lu: Yes, it will. When a person’s negative karma erupted, it will certainly cause a common reaction within the family members. Let me cite you a simple example; if a child falls sick, the father will have to take leaves and the mother has to tend to the child. The father will also have to pay for the medical bills, is this not affecting the whole family? When any one of the family members is seriously ill, the whole family will be unlucky. This is known as an individual’s negative karma being spiralled into a common cause within a family, isn’t it? Let there be no outbreak of karmic emergence to any one of the family member, in this way, the whole family is safe and sound. Therefore, we have to understand that a person who has performed many good deeds will benefit the people around him, as the Chinese saying goes: “A person’s promotion will enable those around him to ride on his coattails”. In the same context, one person practises the Dharma, his whole family will ascend to heaven.

Q&A Session with Hong Kong Dharma Friends

*SERVING NON-VEGETARIAN DISHES AT WEDDING BANQUET - HOW TO MINIMISE THE REPERCUSSION TO THE NEWLYWEDS*

Q: Now that there is _Self-Cultivation Record Form_ for _*Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra*_ (Wang Sheng Jing Tu Shen Zhou), which might come in handy when there is such need to transfer merits to a mass of small deceased animals or creatures. For some of our Dharma friends whose children and in-laws are not practising Dharma, their wedding banquets tend to involve the act of killing. As there are no ways to persuade their family members or the in-laws to have vegetarian wedding banquet instead, these Dharma practitioners have no choice but to start burning in advance the _Self-Cultivation Record Form_ for _*Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra*_ to transfer merits to those deceased animals whose deaths would be caused from the wedding; and continue to do so after the wedding celebration. In this manner, would the newlyweds get less punishment by Bodhisattva? In what way could the repercussion be minimised for the newlyweds? Please enlighten us, Master Lu.

A: He has raised a good question. All of you should remember: given no other choice when family members insist on serving non-vegetarian meals, even though the idea is not from oneself, one should not have the mentality, “well, if I can’t beat them, it’s natural for me to join them”. That can never happen, this is very important. Secondly, from the bottom of one’s heart, one should be thinking instead, “It is a pity, how ignorant human can be”. Thirdly, if you burn the _Self-Cultivation Record Form_ for _*Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra*_ before the fishes are killed, these fishes will not be able to receive the intended merits transfer if they die or are killed later. The _*Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra*_ shall be chanted after the fishes are killed, only then they could be benefited from the mantra. Thus, if you burn the _Self-Cultivation Record Form_ beforehand, they won't be able to get any merit at all. After they are killed, you have to make up more of the _*Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra*_.

EACH “HIT” TO THE
DHARMA PROPAGATION
ARTICLE SHARED ON
INTERNET IS
CONSIDERED AS AN
EFFORT IN HELPING
OTHERS

Caller: There is a Dharma friend who uses more of the internet platform to introduce Dharma to others, not so much in-person. May I ask if he can use the "hit" rate of the article he posted on the internet to form his vow. In other words, he will vow to introduce Dharma to a specific number of those with pre-destined affinity to chance upon the article he posted. Is this possible?

Master Lu: That’s for sure. Each “hit" depicts a person he has managed to help - no matter whom the person may be. The help he extended, be it major or minor, is still considered as an act of helping others. Do you understand?

Master Jun Hong Lu’s Discourse
20160714 (Question 117)

DO NOT ALLOW YOUR
WEALTH TO BE THE
FACTOR THAT CAUSES
DEPLETION OF YOUR
CHILDREN'S KARMIC
REWARDS

Question: When parents spend money buying things for their children, whose karmic rewards will it deplete? Does it make a difference if the children agree to the purchases, as compared to, if they are unaware of it?

Answer: It will deplete the children’s karmic rewards, regardless if they are agreeable or unaware. If by nature, the child is born into this life for karmic repayments, he has the right to these purchases and it will depletes the child’s karmic rewards. The more he receives, the more karmic rewards he is depleting. While parents are paying off their karmic debts, and the child incessantly demands for more, in the end the parents will drive the child away.

Such cases are rampant in Australia where children ceaselessly demand from their parents. Once they reach the age of sixteen, they will be chased out of the house by their parents, leaving them to survive on their own. This is what happened when the affinity has been fully redeemed.

*WHAT WILL CAUSE BURNING OF ONE’S FOREST OF VIRTUES*

Caller: Master Lu, besides bad mouth and hot temper, what other factors would cause burning of one’s Forest of Virtues? Please enlighten us.

Master Jun Hong Lu: Burning of Forest of Virtues is caused by negative flames within our heart, thus, hating or cursing others behind their back would also set flame to one's Forest of Virtues. One's merits will be depleted rapidly if he frequently curses or bears hatred behind others back. In short, it makes no difference, be it scolding others in person, behind their back or within our heart; all of these lead to depletion of one's merits.

Caller: Thank you Master Lu for your kind explanation.

*OUR PRAYERS WILL BE MORE EFFICACIOUS WITH [KEYCAP 1][KEYCAP 3] PROSTRATIONS*

Caller: Master Lu, will it be more efficacious when we say our prayers followed by 13 prostrations?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes.

Caller: If we have three matters to pray for, do we perform 13 prostrations for each matter? Or we can only pray for one matter each day with 13 prostrations?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Both are fine. It’s not an issue.
