[From the Editor] A caller provided some feedback during “The Art of Applying Comprehensive Metaphysics” radio program on 2nd February 2014. Master Lu has pointed out in earlier radio program that the caller was taking shortcuts in recitation. He was confused at that time. Later he found he had missed one sentence in the Heart Sutra (Hsin Ching).
This is a lesson to every Buddhist follower. It should be ensured that our recitations are free from errors. Master Lu has mentioned many times that you have to read the scriptures word by word every now and then to avoid errors no matter how familiar you are with the scriptures.
Caller: Master, I would like to repent to you. I found that I missed one sentence in the Heart Sutra (Hsin Ching) after you said I was taking shortcuts in reciting in earlier program.
Master Lu: I told you!
Caller: Master you are so amazing! I have been thinking what I have done wrong lately.
Master Lu: Didn’t I tell you. But you never listen!
Caller: Yeah. Are we supposed to recite the Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance once we notice there was any sentence being missed during recitation?
Master Lu: That’s correct!
Caller: Thank you for your guidance!
Master Lu: You denied when I reminded you of the omission. You have to read the scriptures word by word if you cannot make it free from errors.
