*BRINGING OTHERS TO ATTEND DHARMA CONVENTIONS IS A WAY TO HELP PEOPLE*

Caller: Master Lu, I am not eloquent, thus seldom get to introduce Dharma to others. However, if I bring them along to attend the Dharma Conventions, is it consider as helping people as well?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes of course, it’s also considered as a good deed.

Caller: Do you still consider it as helping people even though they are not Dharma practitioners and have not started recitation, but are merely there to listen?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Do you expect 100% success rate each time you try to introduce a girl to a bachelor? Do you not consider your act as a form of introduction? For example, if you recommend someone for a post in an organization, do you consider yourself as a referral? It goes without saying; you are definitely regarded as the referral.

*WHY FOREIGN SPIRITS PREFER TO POSSESS BODIES OF NON-VEGETARIAN*

Caller: Master Lu, is it true that vegetarians are less likely to be possessed by foreign spirit as compared to a non-vegetarian? The reason for asking is because on 5th July, during the discipleship ceremony, Master mentioned that the girl would not be possessed by the spirit of her uncle, who died an unjust death, had she been a vegetarian with more sanctified body. Please enlighten us on this, Master Lu.

Master Jun Hong Lu: There is a form of emission from vegetarians that is close to Bodhisattva; whereas the smell emitted from non-vegetarians is similar to that of animals, which foreign spirits could affiliate to. This is because the Naraka/Preta realm is directly under that of the Animal realm. Thus, they will be drawn to the smell.

Caller: So it’s the smell that attracted the foreign spirits.

Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes, they are attracted by it. Why? Because foreign spirits like to possess bodies of those who are having depression and those with foul smell. Let me ask you, houseflies are attracted to things that are smelly, isn’t it?

Caller: Yes. As the Chinese proverb goes, “a fly will not suck an egg without crack”.

*HOW TO ELIMINATE NEGATIVE KARMIC DEBTS FROM FOOD WASTAGE*

Caller: Greetings and Happy Father’s Day to you Master!

Master Jun Hong Lu: Thank you.

Caller: I would like to ask Master regarding food wastage. Some new practitioners said that after we pass-on in future, the first judgement meted out to us in the underworld world would be if we were guilty of wasting food during our lifetime. Therefore, if we are to recite the *Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance Sutra* on the first and fifteen and Buddhas’ ceremonial dates to repent for the wastage of food committed before we started cultivating Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, will this be able to eliminate the negative karmic debts?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes, you can. However, if you persist to hold on to that thought, it showed that these matters were already stored into your eighth sub-consciousness, therefore, you have to eliminate it.

Caller: Master, how do we pray to Bodhisattva to address this issue?

Master Jun Hong Lu: It is very simple; you will need to eliminate the negative karmic debts since it has already developed into karma. There is no need to voice this matter, just think of the issue in your heart and say, “Bodhisattva, please help me eliminate my karmic debts”.

Caller: Specifically for this matter?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes, it is right.

Master Jun Hong Lu’s Discourse
(Question 119)

FRUIT OFFERING TO BODHISATTVA

Question: Is it alright to use watermelon as an offering to Bodhisattva on our prayer altar?

Answer: You may do so. However, please ensure that you do not angle the bottom of the watermelon to face the image of Bodhisattva. You will have to rest the watermelon on its side, with the top and bottom facing the sides. Alternatively, you may place it upright, which may be a better idea.

Question: May I know if there is any guideline on the placement of fruits that are offered to Bodhisattva on the prayer altar based on their sizes?

Answer: Yes, there is definitely a guideline on the placement. Fruits that are bigger in size for example watermelon is to be placed on either side, whereas apples generally are placed in the middle.

*DO NOT PUT SAND IN INCENSE BURNER*

Caller: Hello Master Lu. I heard from a Dharma friend who had just set up a new altar, said that he put rice grains in the incense burner for offering of incense, but it ended up catching fire. I don't understand why do they use rice grains instead of incense ashes.

Master Jun Hong Lu: One could utilise rice grains while incense ashes are not available at the beginning stage. However, once the incense ashes accumulate over time, the rice grains can be completely removed. When you mentioned it caught fire, it was actually due to the incenses and not the rice grains. When a new incense is offered while the existing incense is still burning underneath, flames will sparked off from the bottom when the burning point of the incenses meet.

Caller: Could we use clean sands in replacement if incense ashes are not available?

Master Jun Hong Lu: No, no way! Sands are meant for hell, for ghosts, for Preta realm, don't be foolish!

*RECITING THE _EIGHTY-EIGHT BUDDHAS GREAT REPENTANCE_*
*_(LI FO DA CHAN HUI WEN)_ IN AN EVEN MORE PIOUS MANNER ON CLOUDY DAYS*

Caller: Master Lu, one night you appeared in my dream with a lot of discourses, but when I woke up in the next morning, I could not remember any of those except one that was very clear, saying “There are specific rules to observe when reciting the _*Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance (Li Fo Da Chan Hui Wen)*_ during cloudy days”. I would like you to elaborate further on this.

Master Jun Hong Lu: Well, it simply means that you have to recite it in an even more pious manner. Before performing the recitation, you have to say the prayer, “May the Great Merciful and Great Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva protect and bless me with your compassion, I will now recite the _*Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance*_.” In this way, you won’t be inviting punishment from Dharma protectors. This is because there tend to be many little foreign spirits when the sky is cloudy or overcast. While you are reciting the _*Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance*_, these spirits will be jealous of you when you do not receive any punishment for your wrongdoings. “Why is he not beaten or brought down (to the nether world) by Dharma protectors for his many sins?” So they will complain to the Dharma protectors in order to have their injustice addressed.

Caller: That means we have to perform our recitation even more mindfully and piously during cloudy days, right?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes, and you cannot have any single evil thought or notion during the recitation.

Caller: Ok.

*ARE WE ABLE TO AVOID CHILDREN WHO ARE HERE TO CLAIM OR REPAY DEBTS, AS DESTINED BY KARMA?*

Caller: You ever mentioned that daughters are born to repay debts, whilst sons are born to claim debts. Is it possible for one to avoid such karmic consequences by not having children, though he is destined to have four children in this lifetime?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Inescapable. Even if you decide not to have children, the karmic creditors are able to claim from you through other’s body, like your sibling’s child. We had witnessed such cases in the past. What happened to those who have difficulty conceiving but are pre-destined to repay karmic debts in this life? Well, they may acknowledge their niece or nephew as their godchild and what follows is that the child will start to agitate them or squander their money away. Isn’t this an act of repaying debts?

Caller: I see. So there are things in life that we are pre-destined to put through.

Master Jun Hong Lu: That’s right. You simply cannot escape from it.

Caller: Noted, Master Lu.

Master Jun Hong Lu: However, you will be able to resolve it provided you perform your recitation.

Caller: Exactly. The mantras and sutras are simply splendid. Thank you for introducing such miraculous Dharma to us, Master Lu.

Master Jun Hong Lu: I am exhilarated that all of you have benefitted from it.

Caller: Indeed, Master Lu. I am at a loss of words now.
