Deepest gratitude to the Great Merciful and Great Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva! Deepest gratitude to the merciful Master Lu! Deepest gratitude to all the Dharma defenders!

My brother used to work as a butcher in a meat-processing factory where he killed more than ten pigs a day. One day, after working there for two years, he developed a lot of ulcerated pustules on his left arm. Even though his doctor cured it, they grew back. At that time, I had already believed in Buddhism and thus I took my brother to a temple so he could expiate the sins of the dead. After he performed the Buddhist practice, his arm was cured. However, after three years, he had another outbreak so I took him to the temple where he participated in the Buddhist practice again. Since then, he has been much better. This incident triggered me to persuade him to change his job. He is now working at another factory.

In August 2014, my brother experienced intervertebral disc herniation and as a result, he could not walk. In the past, he has committed a lot of wrongdoings by speech and did not believe in Buddhism. He even prevented my mum and I from practicing Buddhism. He kept saying that practicing the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door was useless. In spite of his interference, my mum and I persisted in practicing Buddhism and reciting scriptures.

My sister, who also practices the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, worked in the same factory as my brother. I thought it was strange that my brother’s condition did not get any better even after he underwent a number of different treatments including traction, massage and moxibustion therapy. Usually, via moxibustion therapy, the medicine practitioner is able to cure the patent in five days. However, in my brother’s case, after half a month, the therapy was still not effective. The practitioner also found it quite strange. Since I had some knowledge in healthcare, I tried electrotherapy on him but again, there was no improvement in his condition. Generally, it takes around 10 days for a person to recover from intervertebral disc herniation.

I told my brother that he has not recovered, as that was his karmic retribution. Since he had been killing pigs for two years, his karmic debts have accumulated and have now been activated. I suggested him to recite Buddhist scriptures to repay his karmic debts. I also asked him to make a vow to release 500 fishes on the first day of the lunar month. The next day, when he got up from his bed, he was able to stand upright without feeling any pain near his waist. Since he did not believe in Buddhism or recite scriptures, his condition was not completely cured. After I introduced the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door to my aunt, she developed belief in Buddhism. Later, my aunt, my mother, my sister and I recited several Little Houses for my brother’s karmic creditors. Not only did he not practice Buddhism, he also committed unvirtuous actions by speech. As a result, our practice was not of great help to him but it did help him walk again. He started to recover – his back gradually got less painful and he did not need to lie in bed all day.

One day I told my brother that the Guan Yin Bodhisattva told me to instruct him to recite Buddhist scriptures in order to repay his karmic debts and thus cure his condition. My mum and I kept persuading him and eventually, he decided to recite the scriptures and also made a vow to offer 21 Little Houses for his karmic creditors. After he finished reciting 5 Little Houses, the pain around his waist reduced. Amazingly, he was able to straighten his back after I tried electrotherapy on him again. I asked him to keep reciting the scriptures. On 11th December, I participated in Master Lu’s assembly in Taiwan. My brother offered 21 Little Houses to his karmic creditors before I got back from the assembly. When I got back, he informed me that he has had a toothache since midnight. I knew that it was his karmic creditors asking for his debts to be repaid so I suggested to him to keep reciting the Little Houses and eventually his condition was cured. Since then, he has made a vow to practice the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door with diligence. My mum and I were both very delighted.

My family and I are all very touched after witnessing the changes that happened to my brother – after he developed belief in Buddhism, he performed life liberation and made a vow to abstain from eating fish. Although he did not believe in Buddhism last year and has committed unvirtuous actions by speech, he showed his mercifulness when he bought 6 blackfish and performed life liberation with me. From then on, he has not eaten any blackfish. At the time, his actions moved me to tears. My brother used to be very stubborn and he committed a lot of wrongdoings such as killing and using evil words against Buddhism. Due to his condition and through our sedulous persuasion, he finally believed in Buddhism and is truly impressed by the inspirational power of the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door. He has recited more than 30 Little Houses for his karmic creditors and amazingly, he has been cured of intervertebral disc herniation! He is now living in our hometown and has introduced the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door to his wife and daughter! Compared to my other family members, my brother is the one with the heavier karmic debts, but fortunately, he has been enlightened. Now everyone in my family is practicing Buddhism! I feel very grateful to the Great Merciful and Great Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva!
