DILIGENTLY HELP PEOPLE AWAKEN SPIRITUALLY BY INTRODUCING BUDDHISM TO THEM OR HELPING SENTIENT BEINGS IS TANTAMOUNT TO PERFORMING RECITATION IN PRACTISING DHARMA
Caller: If the leaders of regional Dharma practice groups spend less time on daily recitation of Buddhist sutras and Little Houses because they dedicate more time to helping other people to attend Master Lu’s public talks on Buddhism, will it affect the quality of their practice and their ‘lotus’ in Heaven? Is it necessarily for them to recite at least 2 to 3 pieces of Little Houses every day while helping others? Master Lu, please enlighten us as I notice that they have been too occupied, leaving them with little time for performing recitation.
Master Jun Hong Lu: It’s the same. A person who is able to help sentient beings, is in fact putting recitation into practice. He is helping sentient beings, and that is tantamount to performing recitation, isn’t it?
