My deepest gratitude to all Buddhas & Bodhisattvas!
My deepest gratitude to Master Jun Hong Lu!
My deepest gratitude to everyone.
In the past I did not have the opportunity to hear the dharma and understand the Law of Cause and Effect. My life was driven by greed, anger and ignorance and I continuously created negative karma. When the negative karma ripened, I had no choice but to bear the consequences of my unwholesome acts! Hurting others with evil speech, having a big temper, destroying Buddhist statues, performing abortions, sexual misconduct and theft, I had committed all the 10 unwholesome courses of action. without doing any good. Eventually I was subjected to untold misery when the negative karma ripened.
In mid-September 2017, I had the shock of my life when I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I felt as if my life had come to an end. I asked myself, “What should I do?”
I felt helpless, pain, sad and miserable. I couldn’t bring myself to accept the retribution of the bad karma.
I was only 34, my children were still young. I was in tears every day when I hugged my children. What should I do? I felt as if I was plunged into an abyss of agony and despair. I sought medical help hoping that I could live longer.
The doctor advised me to go through two courses of chemotherapy to kill the cancerous cells prior to surgery. The pain of going through chemotherapy made me think of taking my own life. It was the Guan Yin Bodhisattva who has the compassion on this sinful child of hers. By chance, I came across a Buddhism sharing by a fellow practitioner Huan An Xu in her WeChat group. I was touched as I felt like having found light at the end of the tunnel. Although she was a stranger to me, she was so enthusiastic and compassionate in helping me by sending me scriptures and Little Houses. She patiently guided me to perform recitation of scriptures and Little Houses to repay my karmic debts. From then onwards, I started to perform recitation and I had a second chance at life. I saw the hope of life and in my heart, I strongly believe that Guan Yin Bodhisattva would save me!
At that time, I made a vow:
1, To be a vegetarian for the rest of my life
2, Not to kill any living creatures.
3. To release 10,000 fish.
4, To recite 300 Little Houses for my aborted child
5. Refrain from sexual misconduct
6, After recovering, I will give a testimony of my experience
During the 2nd chemotherapy, I didn’t feel any pain. I started to perform daily recitation and Little Houses. I felt like a normal person. I dreamt about Guan Yin Bodhisattva treating me and removing my uterus! Thank you my mother, the Guan Yin Bodhisattva!
I was supposed to undergo an operation in November, but the doctor said one of the results is bad and instructed me to go to the provincial hospital for an examination. During the few days in the provincial hospital, I prayed to Guan Yin Bodhisattva for a positive examination result. I vowed that I will perform life liberation twice a month, to propagate Buddhism and to perform more meritorious acts. Guan Yin Bodhisattva was merciful, my medical report was very good, and I decided to go back to my hometown for the surgery.
When I entered the operating room, I kept reciting the Holy Name of Guan Yin Bodhisattva until I lost consciousness due to the effect of anesthesia. After I woke up, the doctor told me that I had only very little bleeding. It took only 3 hours, compared to other similar operations which take 5 to 6 hours. Even the doctor found it unbelievable. From what had happened, it reaffirmed my determination and confidence to practice Buddhism. Only Guan Yin Bodhisattva was able to save me from this world of suffering. Thank you, Guan Yin Bodhisattva!
In December 2017, the local practitioners helped me to set up an altar. On the night before setting up of the altar, I dreamt that a big Buddha appeared in front of me and said: You have to practice Buddhism diligently if not you will descend to lower realms. After waking up, I felt very scared. The next day, after setting up the altar, the fellow practitioners told me that Buddha was trying to guide me. I know that I have to practice diligently to show my gratitude to Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Master Lu. I’m am already on the Dharma Boat. I will practice diligently and never retreat. I will help more sentient beings to practice Buddhism to repay the kindness of the Buddha!
I persisted in performing recitation of scriptures, Little Houses, Life Liberation, repaying my karmic debts and reading Buddhism in Plain Terms. I managed to complete 600 Little Houses in 6 months’ time. When I went back to the hospital for an examination, the doctor informed me that the cancer cells disappeared and all the indexes were back to normal. I had fully recovered, and the doctor told me that I did not need to come back for any more check-ups! I was in tears, I knew Guan Yin Bodhisattva has saved me and gave me a 2nd chance at life. No words could describe how grateful I was. My saviour Guan Yin Bodhisattva!
There was a period of time, when I felt bored & uneasy to perform recitation. I dreamt about Master Lu’s Dharma body sitting on a chair with Buddhism in Plain Terms on his lap. Master Lu told me: “You should spend more time reading Buddhism in Plain Terms”. My gratitude to Master Jun Hong Lu!
In May 2018, I dreamt about Master Lu in a Dharma convention. He was dressed in white and his tall dharma body was sitting on top of the mountain. When it was my turn for totem reading, Master Lu smiled at me without saying anything, then he waved his hand. A golden circle appeared and he placed it into my body. When I woke up, I knew that Master Lu had blessed me! My deepest gratitude to Master Jun Hong Lu!
In July 2019, I went for a medical check-up. My blood SCC index showed a little abnormality. I quickly confessed and repented to Guan Yin Bodhisattva. I regretted that although I had recovered for 2 years, I hadn’t shared my testimony as promised. I did not honour my vow. I quickly made a vow again to release 300 fish, 49 turtles, follow the footsteps of Guan Yin Bodhisattva, and to attend Master Lu’s Dharma Talk in Malaysia this year; I will share my testimony, work as volunteer to atone for my sins. I will introduce Buddhism to more people and spread the seeds of Buddhism wherever I go. I prayed to Guan Yin Bodhisattva to bless me with a favourable medical result! In the end, the results show that everything is normal.
Deepest gratitude to the greatly compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva who has once again helped me in my life. Deepest gratitude to Master Jun Hong Lu. Thank you for bringing such a good dharma practice to the human world. You are so worried that these suffering children of yours would not cultivate well and lag behind into the world of Samsara.
Master Lu, you can be rest assured that I will be loyal to you and the Dharma practice. I will follow your footsteps until I arrive on the other shore of liberation. I will never regress. I vow to attain complete enlightenment in one lifetime!
That’s all for my sharing today. If there’s anything inappropriate, may Guan Yin Bodhisattva and the Dharma Protectors forgive me, may Master Lu forgive me.
Thank you everyone.
