Deepest gratitude to the selfless Master Lu
Deepest gratitude to all
Today, I would like to share about the miracles that happened to my 19 year old son after practising Guan Yin Citta. My son had been suffering from leukaemia for 3 years and had undergone 8 rounds of chemotherapy only to suffer from a recurrence. However, by applying the Three Golden Buddhist practices and obtaining Bodhisattva’s blessing and protection, my son recovered and was back in school in August 2018. Deepest gratitude to Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Master Lu.
Although we met with much misfortune, one thing we learnt was that we reap what we sow. The sea of bitterness has no bounds; though so, it is never too late to mend one’s way. We were so lucky to be saved by Guan Yin Bodhisattva. I believed this was the best arrangement. I am thankful that I have encountered such a good spiritual practice.
My husband passed away suddenly when my son was 10 years old. From then on, my son and I had only each other to count on and we led a simple life. But in August 2015, disaster once again fell on our already unfortunate family. Just when my 16-year-old son was admitted to high school, he fell ill and was having flu-like symptom. He was down with fever for 2 consecutive days and was diagnosed with acute leukemia. I broke down when I heard this news. However, I knew I have no choice but to accept this cruel fact and to fight this medical condition together with my son.
It is true when people said, we can never truly understand how others feel until the same thing happens to us. Leukemia is such a terrible condition, not only because it tortures a person physically but more so the psychological breakdown that it could result in, coupled with the exorbitant medical bills that ordinary people could not afford.
Master once mentioned that leukaemia is a condition caused by very big foreign spirit. Without learning Buddhism and reciting Buddhist scriptures to allow the karmic creditor to ascend to a higher spiritual realm, one will usually suffer loss of both life and wealth. I considered myself to be the fortunate one, perhaps it was due to my positive karmic affinity from my past lives and I have my colleague to thank for introducing me to a Buddhist group. Coincidentally, Master Lu was having a Dharma convention at that time. The chat group was continually updated with recordings of his discourses and videos of the totem readings. I was caught between feelings of awe and incredulity after watching.
I had never come across Buddhist teachings and always thought that performing recitation was a thing for monastics in a monastery and had nothing to do with me. Looking back, that was really foolish.
Master Lu’s discourses and totem readings made me understand the law of causality. I no longer complain about my life being unfair as I understand that the events happening at home are a result of the evil deeds done in my past and present lives. I sincerely repent here before Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Master Lu.
At the end of March 2017, some Buddhist friends helped me to contact fellow Buddhist practitioners in Beijing who sent over some dharma materials. My son has a deep affinity with Buddhism and took up the scripture booklet that very day. After reading the introduction to Guan Yin Citta, he began to perform daily recitation and Little House. He also managed to memorise the complex Buddhist scriptures within a few days. It happened to be the tombsweeping festival then, and my son offered 3 Little House to his karmic creditor. Guan Yin Bodhisattva then hinted in his dreams that it was a decreased karmic creditor and also advised him on the number of Little Houses to be recited.
Despite how my son went through 11 rounds of chemotherapy and surgery, the karmic creditor was still on him. If not for the good fortune of encountering such an efficacious spiritual practice, we would never be free from our karmic creditors and would ultimately have neither health nor wealth. As Master Lu says, debts must be paid in kind and a life must be paid with a life. We reap what we sow as the law of causality is genuine beyond doubt and impartial. Bodhisattva has granted us this dharma gem, giving us the opportunity to change our fate and destiny. Through reciting the little house, we may repay our karmic debts and dispel calamities. this collection of Buddhist scriptures is simply marvellous! Guan Yin Citta is so efficacious! My son and I are so blessed!
One month later, we put up a Buddhist altar at our rented house in Beijing. My son and I made a vow to practise full vegetarianism. In addition, he also made a vow on the amount of Little House to be recited to his karmic creditor. With the blessings of Bodhisattva, I see gradual improvement in my son’s health.
As we were not very familiar with Beijing, my son and I looked through our mobile phones for places to perform life liberation. With our little yellow car, we would go to the market to buy the fish and release them. With the blessing of Bodhisattva, my son was able to recite 4 Little House per day. After he offered 95 Little House, the same karmic creditor appeared in his dream and shook hands with him. The next day, was a Monday routine checkup, fair enough, all his health indicators were almost back to normal.
My son gradually regained his health. The specialist doctor said that we could go back to our home country earlier than we would have expected. My son jumped with joy when he heard this news. We knew that it was the blessing of Guan Yin Bodhisattva that had granted us all these. Deepest gratitude to Guanyin Bodhisattva. Deepest gratitude to Master Lu.
Master Lu said it is at one’s darkest moment that they will accept the teachings of the Buddha, as this is when our true nature emerges. We will then perform recitation and practise Buddhism – indeed it is a high price that we pay. All phenomena are impermanent. We can be in a state of bliss today, but who knows, something bad will happen tomorrow. The same goes with sufferings, things may just take a turn for the better tomorrow too.
Just like in the case of my child. Before he was 16, I could never imagine disaster would hit us. However, life is impermanent. We went through 3 years of turbulence where we lived each day in fear. Leukemia is really a terrifying condition. If we were not fortunate enough to encounter Buddhism, we would surely suffer from loss of both life and money. My son would never be as how he is now. Deepest gratitude to Guanyin Bodhisattva.
Buddhism is an education, not superstition. Everyone comes to this world with karmic obstacles like a file with our personal data that follows us. One brings nothing with them when they die, except one’s karma and as you sow, so you reap. Look at how terrible our karmic retribution was. If only we knew earlier that we should perform recitation of Buddhist scriptures to repay the karmic debts, most probably we would not have to suffer that amount of pain. It was a really a high price to pay when we only make pleas to Bodhisattva at the eleventh hour.
We are now 2 years into Buddhism practice. Through the Four Golden Buddhist Practices, my son’s health has gradually improved. He no longer needs to be on medication and all his medical indicators are normal. Buddhas and Bodhisattvas will never give up on sentient beings. As long as we are willing to repent through performing recitation, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas will definitely help us.
Should my sharing today be improper in any way, may the Greatly Merciful, Greatly Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Dharma Protectors forgive me.
