IN THE CASE WHERE KARMIC OBSTACLES HAVE ERUPTED, CAN WE UTILISE OUR VIRTUES TO ELIMINATE THEM?

Caller:

Master Lu, when we dreamed of having karmic obstacles, and on top of that we felt that the karmic obstacles have indeed erupted in real life, if we are unable to make it in time to recite Little Houses, can we use our virtues to eliminate the karmic obstacles?
Master Jun Hong Lu:

Yes, you may do so.
Caller:

What about if the person’s virtues are insufficient?
Master Jun Hong Lu:

In such cases, elimination will not be possible, that goes without saying.  It’s the same logic as having not enough money to purchase something.  You may ask me next, what about some others who, though they do not have enough money, are still able to make a purchase?  It’s because he took “an overdraft”, they used their credit card. Under these circumstances, making vows to Bodhisattva is like owning a credit card. They vow, “Bodhisattva, I will definitely do ……when I recover from this illness.  As long as I have one breath left, I will use it to introduce Dharma to others”. With this, they gained the trust of Bodhisattva and are granted a credit card to spend in advance. Here comes the point: if, after this ordeal, they manage to recover from this illness but do not make any repayment, their house will be taken away and sold off eventually.
