Master Jun Hong Lu’s Discourse
(Question 181)
29 September 2017

*RECITATION TO BE PERFORMED WHEN WE ARRIVE AT OUR HOTEL ROOM*

Question: Master Lu mentioned that when we arrive at our hotel room, we need to recite one _Great Compassion Mantra_ while facing each of the four walls. In the case of several Buddhist friends staying in the room together, can they share the recitation; do they have to each face a wall while they perform the recitation?

Answer: This practice of reciting one _Great Compassion Mantra_ while facing each of the four walls is only applicable when you are staying alone in the room. This is because you may lack energy and spiritual power. However, when there are a few people staying in the room, each should just recite three times of the _Great Compassion Mantra_. When you recite the said mantra as a group, it is equivalent to a group cultivation. As the sound of recitation will surround the room and improve its energy, the earlier practice need not be observed.

*QUANTITY OF LITTLE HOUSE RECITED DAILY REFLECTS ON THE DIFFERENT LEVEL OF ACHIEVEMENT; HOW TO MAKE YOUR PRAYER MORE EFFICACIOUS*

Caller: This morning a Buddhist friend dreamed of Master Lu’s saying, “The amount of Little House recited daily reflects the different level of achievement – one to two pieces is one level; two to three pieces is another; and so is three to five pieces. I hope that you will be sincere in your recitation and persevere, as it is my aspiration that one day all of you will become Buddhas.
Let me share with you a way to go about praying to Bodhisattva when you have an urgent request. After you complete your offering of Little House and expressing your gratitude to Bodhisattva (when the oil lamp and incense are still burning), do not stand up immediately. You should continue to kneel and turn your thoughts to Bodhisattva. Generally, under such circumstances, Bodhisattva will come to you and when you seize this moment to make your prayer request, it will be very efficacious.” Master Lu, please enlighten us on this dream.

Master Jun Hong Lu: This is indeed true. It is typical of me, together with my dharma body, I go out to help all of you. After praying and completing your recitation, do not stand up immediately. Kneel down for a bit and try to feel the presence of Bodhisattva before you start talking to her.

*GUIDE TO MAKING VOWS FOR BEGINNERS WHO ARE CRITICALLY ILL / STRICKENED BY CANCER TO HELP RECOVERY*

Caller: There is a discourse being disseminated on the internet that goes, “Master Lu advises those with health issues, including critical illnesses and cancer, that if you wish to recover it is essential to make the following vows:”

1 To be a full vegetarian your whole life
2 To refrain from the act of killing for your whole life
3 To perform the liberation of captives (more than 10,000)
4 To offer 1000 Little Houses to repay karmic debts
5 To share testimonials to save other sentient beings upon recovery

May I know if it is alright for Buddhist friends to use the points above as model answer to be disseminated to Buddhist friends who are terminally ill and who have just started on their cultivation journey?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes, they may do so as these are the basic obligations aside from those additional ones that I may have specifically advised others. Once you are stricken with cancer, you will need to do the above. Failure to do so will render the making of any other “Greater” vows worthless.

*ALWAYS SPEAK THE TRUTH*

Master Jun Hong Lu: Speaking the truth and being a good person paradoxically comes with much toil as we may have to bear with the grievances, vexations and pain that arise. However, we should trust that living in the truth will grant us peace of mind, relief, confidence, calmness and ease.

*GAINING WISDOM IS THE KEY TO A GOOD LIFE*

Honestly speaking, although performing recitations diligently helps to eradicate much of your negative karma, however, you must also know that the level of one’s wisdom is the main measurement to distinguish sentient beings apart from one another.

Bodhisattvas are an embodiment of wisdom and harmony, whereas sentient beings have yet to attain complete ’wisdom’. Elements of wisdom are common in both. It’s apparent that the gaining of wisdom is of utmost importance to us all.

An Excerpt from Master Jun Hong Lu’s
Public Talk in Jakarta, Indonesia
April 22, 2017

*IMPORTANCE OF TOLERANCE*

We must learn to exercise tolerance towards natural disasters and destitute of life. In the process of Buddhist cultivation, by paying particular attention to exercising tolerance, you will be able to liberate yourself from sufferings as tolerance lays the foundation for Buddhist cultivators.

In accordance to Buddhist teachings, “tolerance” is the most ingenious Dharma door that liberates us from sufferings. Let me tell you, this is so as “tolerance” is able to help us attain “Precepts, Concentration, and Wisdom”.

*FAITH IN BUDDHISM DRIVEN BY ONE’S WISH*

A large number of sentient beings wish for peace and prosperities, hence their belief in Buddhism. They assume their faith in Buddha is deep, but in reality, hovers around a superficial level, as they are unable to relinquish their earthly comforts and good fortune.

In reality, everything in this world is like a cloud passing in the sky. We are besotted with the enjoyment of material comforts, and therefore, are not willing to relinquish them. Nor are we able to reflect on the impermanence of time. For instance, consider the example of a person who owns a house, but due to the inherent financial pressures created by home ownership, has to work extremely hard to service its associated loan, and ultimately completely exhausts themselves.

We cannot bring along our wealth with us when we pass on from this world. Our spiritual life is the result of our cultivation and it is truly our ‘only life’ that can allow us to transcend the six realms of samsara.

*DOING OUR UTMOST TO PROPAGATE BUDDHISM ONLINE IS CONSIDERED AN ACT OF SAVING OTHERS*

Caller: What is the spiritual status that one can attain when they do their utmost in propagating Buddhism online, without any face-to-face interaction with the beneficiaries?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Through the use of this ingenious method to help and save people, you will be able to attain the state of a Bodhisattva. In fact, as long as you do well in your spiritual cultivation, and if you manage to save ten, or twenty thousand people, you are regarded as a Bodhisattva.

*LATEST DISCOURSE: WHEN YOU AT THE VERGE OF THROWING A TANTRUM, RECITE 10 TIMES “MAY GUAN YIN BODHISATTVA HAVE COMPASSION ON ME, AND HELP ME TRANSFORM THE GREED, HATRED AND IGNORANCE WITHIN ME”*

Caller: Master Lu, you advised us before that when we are enraged and are at the verge of throwing a tantrum, we should recite in silence “May Guan Yin Bodhisattva help me to transform the greed, hatred and ignorance within me” 10 times. Is that right?

Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes, this is the latest from yesterday’s discourse. Let me tell you, you must say, “May Guan Yin Bodhisattva have compassion on me and help me transform the greed, hatred and ignorance within me.” How does this work? It is because every anger stems from the 3 poisons, “Greed, anger and ignorance”.

Caller: In that case should we start first, by reciting in silence “May Guan Yin Bodhisattva have compassion on me and help me to transform the greed, hatred and ignorance within me” or should we recite Mantra To Untie Karmic Knots, or at times like this, should we first take a seat or should we tell Bodhisattva directly?

Master Jun Hong Lu: When you are at the verge of throwing a tantrum, firstly you should tell Bodhisattva, followed by performing recitation. That will be perfect! After you did as said, see for yourself, if you would still get angry.

Caller: Indeed, relating to Bodhisattva is also considered an ingenious approach.

Master Jun Hong Lu: Try it out and you will know what I mean. In fact, from the psychological point of view, when a person is fuming in anger, it is what people referred to as “excess of fire”, being ill-tempered. Whenever you are restless, try to calm down and your anger will slowly settle.

*PRAY FOR PEACE AND REUNIFICATION DURING ‘MID-AUTUMN FESTIVAL’, INSIST ON NOT PERFORMING ANY ACT OF KILLING*

Caller: Master Lu, could you give us a discourse on ‘Mid-Autumn Festival’ from metaphysics point of view?

Master Jun Hong Lu: 15th day of the 8th lunar month is also a festive day in the Celestial realm. It’s a day to call for reunion with the hope of bringing happiness to everyone, even if full attendance may not be achievable. On this occasion, we should stay home to perform recitations, and pray for peace and reunification for the family. In fact, it is more efficacious to pray for reunification during Mid-Autumn Festival as compared to 1st and 15th of each lunar month. However, many people choose to throw a feast with non-vegetarian food. As a result, after the festival, they will experience loss of loved ones at home. Therefore, you must insist on not consuming live seafood.
