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: Master Lu, thank you for the hard work. Hello. I would like to ask about a person born in 1983, year of the Pig. Please take a look at her health and career.
Master Lu: 1983, year of the Pig, right? I see a figure beside the Totem. Oh, it’s you. She’s pouring tea. I’m joking. You may leave now. It affects the energy field. 1983, year of the Pig. Master Lu is very playful. Everyone, tell me, do you like this type of personality?
Audience: We do!
Master Lu: Ah. I say what I need to say. After I say it, I forget about it. I hope all of you can learn from Master Lu. All the unhappiness in the past, all the sorrows in the past, forget them all. It’s no big deal. In this world, we only have such a short period of time. We spend time being upset, being stuck in our own world. Ah-ya, being unable to forgive ourselves. It’s no big deal. Think about tomorrow. Tomorrow will be a better day. Everything can be changed. If today is not good, tomorrow will definitely be better. I’m sorry, which year of the Pig?
Enquirer: 1983. 1983, year of the pig, female.
Master Lu: Let me tell you. This female has some minor karmic conflict with you. Do you understand? Is this correct?
Enquirer: Correct. Very true.
Master Lu: Whatever you say, she won’t listen. Always has conflicts with you, and doesn’t listen to you.
Master Lu: What do you want to ask about her? Tell me.
Enquirer: I would like to ask about her reproductive system.
Master Lu: There’s inflammation.
Enquirer: She has already had 3 operations.
Master Lu: I know. Let me tell you, for her reproductive system, what I see is that, there’s some kind of sagging. So it’s going downwards. Looks like it’s a bit deformed. Do you understand? If it’s deformed, it would generate some other things.
Enquirer: Oh, yes yes. Correct.
Master Lu: You see? Master Lu is not a medical doctor. Isn’t this accurate? You see, I only used 2 seconds to perform Totem Enquiry.
Enquirer: She always has some kind of discharge.
Master Lu: You see? The things that she discharges aren’t good.
Enquirer: Don’t know what the cause is.
Master Lu: What’s the cause? Karmic obstacles due to negative karmas.
Enquirer: Karmic obstacles. She has aborted two children. Could you please take a look at those two children for me? I have recited more than 10 Little Houses, could you please take a look?
Master Lu: You think about it, for two children, would more than 10 Little Houses be enough? It’s like just trying to get rid of beggars. You can’t do that. For each child, this type of child, you must recite 21 Little Houses. For two children you need to recite 42 Little Houses. Do you understand? Recite mindfully and sincerely. Recite as soon as possible. But 42 Little Houses, in fact, you should be more generous and recite 49 Little Houses. 49 is an auspicious number. It’s a very good number. 49 Little Houses can resolve a very major problem. Do you understand? Let me tell you, victory is within reach. Even though you are destined to have karmic conflicts with her, since she’s your daughter, your heart still aches for her. Do you understand? She had abortions, and the children are now claiming her life.
Master Lu: In the future, you should remember, she’s quite unfortunate. This is because when she was little, you and your husband were always fighting. So in her mind, she was always depressed. Very unhappy. Round of applause! Alright.
Enquirer: Master Lu, could you please take a look and see what colour the Pig is?
Master Lu: She’s a white Pig.
Enquirer: White Pig.
Master Lu: Ask her to wear white clothes more often. She would be very, very lucky. Do you understand? Other than that, everything is fine.
Enquirer: Then could you please take a look at a female, born in 1987, year of the Rabbit. Take a look at her health.
Master Lu: 1987, year of the Rabbit. She has foreign spirits on her body, on her abdomen. Not good.
Enquirer: How many Little Houses should I recite for her?
Master Lu: Recite 18 Little Houses for her, tell her to drink more water. She is dehydrated.
Enquirer: Drink more water?
Master Lu: Yes, tell her to drink more water. What did you say her zodiac sign was?
Enquirer: Year of the Rabbit.
Master Lu: Rabbit. Rabbits can’t live without water. So all of you should know, Master Lu is telling you that, Master Lu really knows about everything. For people who were born in the year of the Rabbit, since Rabbits need to drink water, in their Chinese name, sometimes they need the strokes within the characters that represent water. Sometimes Rabbits also need to have a character that contains the strokes that look like a roof. There are reasons behind this. Having a good name or not, or a good birth year, month, day, or time; your own Feng-Shui and fortune; and your living environment… All of the above factors can influence your entire life. Therefore, you should learn more. Today, all of you are sacrificing the time which could have been used for playing. All of you who are here are the most fortunate people because you have heard the voice of Guan Yin Bodhisattva. How much have you learnt? If you go out and be silly, dancing like crazy in a disco, it’s a complete waste of time. Like a group of demons dancing madly. Why would normal people display this kind of behaviour? Humans have such a short lifespan, and yet people still play Mah-jong. We can’t do that. Right? Okay.
Enquirer: Could you please take a look at this Rabbit. She had cardiac surgery before.
Master Lu: Her heart is fine. The cardiac surgery seems to be a myocardial bridge.
Enquirer: Oh. Yes yes yes.
Master Lu: Round of applause! Ah-yo! My goodness. Doctor Lu! Okay, okay.
