Master Jun Hong Lu’s Discourse (Question 111) 20160615
IS IT APPROPRIATE TO OFFER INCENSE TO BODHISATTVA AND ANCESTORS AT THE SAME TIME?
I have an altar at home where I have enshrined Bodhisattva, deities and ancestors. Though I have always ensured I worship with utmost sincerity, I may have some wrongdoings which I may not be aware of, and in such cases I seek the forgiveness of Bodhisattva.
At this moment, I have enshrined a portrait of Oriental Radio’s Guan Yin Bodhisattva. When I offer the daily incense to Guan Yin Bodhisattva, can I offer incense to the deities and ancestors at the same time?
In the morning, you must first offer incense to Guan Yin Bodhisattva. Incense for ancestors is to be offered only after the oil lamp is put out.
