A WOMAN’S HAIR SHOULD NOT BE TOO LONG

Caller:

A fellow Buddhist practitioner dreamt of Master Lu saying, ‘Buddha is placed importantly amongst Bodhisattvas, His double has now already come back’. In the practitioner’s mind, it means that Buddha has already come back to His lotus seat in Heaven. Then, Master Lu continues, ‘There will be fewer and fewer people in this world hearing about the Dharma in the future’. There was a line which Master Lu spoke in the dream, ‘There will be Yin energy if a woman’s hair is too long’. Please Master Lu, may you mercifully tell us the meaning that this dream conveys?

Master Lu:

Yes. Talking about a woman’s hair—as Buddha explained said in the past, the reason why women were not allowed to become monks is because there is too much Yin energy, and women belong to the Yin energy field. Of course, there is Yin energy in women’s hair. From a physics perspective, the longer a woman’s hair is, the more microcells there will be, and these microcells originally belong to the Yin energy field. So, the longer a woman’s hair is, the more bewitching the woman looks. If the length of a woman’s hair is shorter, people would feel that she is refreshing and vivacious, straightforward and straight-talking. Look at those people with relatively long hair. Sometimes, when you talk to them, they will glance at you and flick their hair. In a way, this is showing off, or, to put it in a nicer way, it is coquetry. With dishevelled and unkempt hair—have you read the book “Liao Zhai” before?

Caller:

Yes.

Master Lu:

When ghost comes, is the hair long?

Caller:

Very long.

Master Lu:

Yes, when a person comes with their hair fluttering in the air… isn’t it scary?

Caller:

Thank you, Master Lu, for your kind teaching.

Master Lu:

Sometimes I think about how arrogant you young ladies are; can anyone conquer you? The year I gave a speech at Harvard University, the students asked many sharp questions, and they felt so good about themselves. Children like you with a high level of education should uphold right belief and right thought in order to succeed.

Caller:

I did many wrong things before I practised Buddhism, especially things related to love and relationships.

Master Lu:

Right.

Caller:

Since I started practising Buddhism, I understand that all of those were wrong.

Master Lu:

Yes, being too pretty isn’t a good thing.

Caller:

No, it surely isn’t.

Master Lu:

Being too pretty with long hair will easily cause one to go down to the underworld.

Caller:

Yes, when I first started performing recitations, I dreamed of that. So, I am very grateful to Guan Yin Bodhisattva, and to you, Master Lu, for saving my life, led with wisdom, and granting me a second chance at life.
