(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
LATEST DISCOURSE: WHEN YOU ARE ON THE VERGE OF LOSING YOUR TEMPER, RECITE 10 TIMES “MAY GUAN YIN BODHISATTVA HAVE COMPASSION ON ME, AND HELP ME TRANSFORM THE GREED, HATRED AND DELUSION WITHIN ME”
Caller: Master Lu, you advised us before that when we are enraged and are on the verge of losing our temper, we may recite in silence “May Guan Yin Bodhisattva help me to transform the greed, hatred and delusion within me” 10 times. Is that right?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes, this is the latest from yesterday’s discourse. Let me tell you, you must say, “May Guan Yin Bodhisattva have compassion on me and help me transform the greed, hatred and ignorance within me.” How does this work? It is because every anger stems from the three poisons, being Greed, Anger and Delusion.
Caller: In that case should we start first, by reciting in silence “May Guan Yin Bodhisattva have compassion on me and help me to transform the greed, hatred and delusion within me” or should we recite the Mantra To Untie Karmic Knots, or at times like this, should we first take a seat or should we pray to Bodhisattva directly?
Master Jun Hong Lu: When you are on the verge of flying into a rage, firstly you should pray to Bodhisattva, followed by performing recitation. That will be perfect! After doing so, see for yourself, whether you would still get angry.
Caller: Indeed, relating to Bodhisattva is also considered an ingenious approach.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Try it out and you will know what I mean. In fact, from the psychological point of view, when a person is fuming in anger, try to calm down and your anger will slowly subside.
