Q139: Hi Master Lu, at what ages do we experience Karmic Passes? Is this the same for everyone?


  • In general, we experience Karmic Passes, or the predetermined period of time which follows a karmic pattern that calamities are destined to occur, when the last digit of our age ends with a 3, 6 or 9. For example, when we reach 19, 29, 33, 39, 49, 59, 66, 73, and 89, etc. People also experience Karmic Passes at age 84.
  • Conditions vary for each individual, and therefore this cannot be generalised for everyone. However, we should be extra cautious when we reach any of the ages mentioned above.
  • All ages are according to the Gregorian calendar. For example, if you were born on 1st January, 1993, and you turn 19 on 1st January 2012, then you are likely to experience Karmic Passes at this age.
  • When you experience major Karmic Passes in life, it is recommended that you recite the Jvala Mahaugra Dharani (Hsiao Tsai Chi Hsiang Shen Chou) as much as possible. At the same time, you can make a Great Vow stating that you will recite 108 Little Houses to transform and resolve your Karmic Passes. It is also important that you persistently perform your Daily Recitation, as well as make Great Vows and perform Life Liberation.
