Q032: Hi Master Lu, the whole world is now downloading recordings of your radio programs and learning Buddhism under the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door. All the feedback that I have heard from people around me has been positive. However, recently I heard that some individuals are reciting the Cundi Dharani (Chun Ti Shen Chou) to break up other people’s marriages, or to kick their parents out of the house and send them to nursing homes.

A032: 

  • Buddhism emphasises on Bringing Forth the Mind (Fa Hsin)[1]. A person needs to have benevolent mental initiatives to receive blessings from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
  • Master Lu teaches sutras and mantras under the Dharma Door of the Great Merciful and Great Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva. Buddhism emphasises being kind and having positive karmic relationships with others, as well as saving and crossing over all sentient beings.
  • You should never perform recitations with the intention of placing a curse on others. This would not be accepted by Buddhas, Bodhisattvas or the Dharma Protectors. If you are performing recitations with this kind of intention, you will receive punishments.


[1] “Bringing Forth the Mind” (Fa Hsin) is an abbreviation for bringing forth the Bodhicitta. In Sanskrit it is bodhicitta-samutpāda.
