PERFORM RECITATION DILIGENTLY WHILE IN GOOD HEALTH
Caller: Some cancer patients encounter difficulties in performing recitation due to physical weakness, despite having a willing heart. In this case, how should they say their prayers to Guan Yin Bodhisattva, so that they can have the energy to recite Little Houses for themselves?
Master Jun Hong Lu: That’s impossible. This is the case where karmic debts have come into effect. You only pray for blessings after the eruption of your karmic debts: “My health is not good now and I am unable to perform recitation”. Why can’t you recite diligently when you were in good health? The thing is, you did not recite diligently when you were healthy, and that’s why you are suffering from a poor health now. This karmic eruption will definitely make it difficult for you to perform recitation, and not being able to perform recitation is, by itself, another form of karmic retribution. Therefore, you can only endure it as you are receiving your retribution.
