The following case is extracted from “International Buddhist Conference with Master Lu” Grand Dharma Function in Malaysia on 28 August 2011. Master Lu performed Totem Enquiries live on stage and answered questions from the audience to help them overcome difficulties in their health, career, and everyday issues.

When a person is asking Master Lu to perform Totem Enquiry, if a living person is being enquired, then the year of birth and the Chinese zodiac sign of that person should be stated. If a deceased person is being enquired, then the full name of the deceased and the exact written characters of the name should be stated.

Enquirer: Deepest gratitude to the Great Merciful and Great Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva. Deepest gratitude to the Great Merciful and Great Compassionate Master Lu.

Master Lu: Hi.

Enquirer: I would like to ask about a person born in 2005, year of the Rooster. Male. It’s my son. Are there any foreign spirits occupying his body?

Master Lu: Born in 2005, year of the Rooster, your son. Male. What do you want to ask about him?

Enquirer: Are there any foreign spirits occupying his body? How many Little Houses does he need?

Master Lu: Recite 7 Little Houses for him. There are minor foreign spirits occupying his body.

Enquirer: I have already recited more than 60 Little Houses for him.

Master Lu: Yes. Just recite a little bit more for him.

Enquirer: Oh. Okay.

Master Lu: 7 Little Houses. Now I see that the colour is very light.

Enquirer: Oh, oh.

Master Lu: Quite good. About your son, let me tell you, you should be careful. Ah. He has minor symptoms of autism. Do you understand? He doesn’t really like to communicate with others.

Enquirer: Yes yes yes.

Master Lu: Yes yes yes.

Enquirer: When he takes a nap at noon, he also cries.

Master Lu: What does he do when he takes a nap at noon?

Enquirer: He cries.

Master Lu: He cries, right? This is because of the foreign spirits occupying his body. Oh. There are foreign spirits occupying your house as well.

Enquirer: Oh.

Master Lu: At night time, you can hear sounds on your roof.

Enquirer: Yes yes yes, correct.

Master Lu: Oh-yo.

Enquirer: Could that be a child that was miscarried? I’ve never had an abortion.

Master Lu: Ah.

Enquirer: I mean, the foreign spirit that’s occupying my child’s body.

Master Lu: No, it’s an elder who raised and took care of your son.

Enquirer: Oh. An elder from my family?

Master Lu: Someone who raised him. When he was little.

Enquirer: Oh, his paternal granny took care of him, his maternal granny also took care of him.

Master Lu: You should say “my grandma”. Don’t say “his granny”. “His granny” doesn’t sound good. It sounds rude. “His granny”. Ha ha ha ha. Everyone, tell me, are you happy when you’re with Master Lu?

Audience: Happy!

Master Lu: Ah. Being full of Dharma Bliss is like this.

Enquirer: Thank you, Master Lu. His paternal granny took care of two children.

Master Lu: What’s “my grandma”? Ha ha, it’s turned into “his granny” now.

Enquirer: It’s my child’s paternal grandma.

Master Lu: Yes yes.

Enquirer: It’s my child’s paternal grandma. When he was little, when his paternal grandma took care of him, he was already crying. Later on, when his maternal grandma took care of him, he was still crying.

Master Lu: His crying is in fact related to his paternal grandma. Karmic ties from previous lives. Now the grandma is occupying his body. Do you understand? Now he’s able to see the foreign spirit. The grandma visits him at noon, so he cries.

Enquirer: The foreign spirit of the grandma is occupying his body.

Master Lu: Yes. Do you understand?

Enquirer: Thank you, Master Lu. Master Lu, could you please take a look at my mother? Her feet always hurts.

Master Lu: You don’t even know you should ask how many Little Houses you should recite.

Enquirer: Didn’t you say to recite 7 Little Houses?

Master Lu: Not enough.

Enquirer: How many Little Houses should I recite for the foreign spirits occupying my house?

Master Lu: 49 Little Houses.

Enquirer: Oh. That’s for the foreign spirits occupying my house.

Master Lu: Yes. The foreign spirit is occupying your house and doesn’t want to leave. Do you understand?

Enquirer: I understand, I understand. We’re also reciting for his granny as well. Can I please ask about my mother? 1952, year of the Dragon.

Master Lu: Ha ha ha. Full of Dharma Bliss.

Enquirer: 1952, year of the Dragon, I would like to ask about my mother.

Master Lu: 1952, year of the Dragon, right?

Enquirer: Yes.

Master Lu: What would you like to ask?

Enquirer: Are there any foreign spirits occupying her body? Her feet are very painful.

Master Lu: Yes. It’s karmic obstacles.

Enquirer: Karmic obstacles due to negative karmas, not foreign spirits.

Master Lu: Don’t worry. The pain on the feet hasn’t just been a day or two. You need to ask her to recite the Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance (Li Fo Ta Chan Hui Wen).

Enquirer: How many times?

Master Lu: Recite 3 times per day. Then you should also recite Little Houses.

Enquirer: How many Little Houses?

Master Lu: 21 Little Houses.

Enquirer: Oh. Okay.

Master Lu: Okay?

Enquirer: Okay, Okay. Thank you. Master Lu, could you please take a look at the altar at my place?

Master Lu: No, can’t ask anymore. Oh. Altar? Alright, if it’s about the altar at home, I’ll take a look. Which year and zodiac sign?

Enquirer: 1980, year of the Monkey.

Master Lu: Wah! Your altar is not bad. Let me tell you, it’s very bright.

Enquirer: Oh, Thank you.

Master Lu: Bodhisattva often visits your altar.

Enquirer: The wick of the oil lamp often forms the shape of a lotus flower. Thank you, Master Lu. Thank you!

Master Lu: Very good.
