[From the Editor] Master Lu performed Totem Enquiry for a caller’s father during the “Art of Applying Comprehensive Metaphysics” radio program on 3rd July 2012, Sydney Australia local time. Master Lu revealed that the caller’s father has blockages in his brain blood vessels, which could potentially cause a minor stroke. Master Lu also said that in his earlier years, the father had a bad temper and ate too much greasy food… All of the above were confirmed by the caller. Through the interpretation of a dream that was described, Master Lu further accurately identified that the father was in a position of influence!
We cannot help but feel that it is unfortunate that we are unable to escape the laws of causality. Despite our cultivation in previous lives, which may have resulted in considerable good fortunes in this life, we still commit numerous wrongdoings through ignorance. When all the good fortunes are gone and the negative karmic fruits have ripened, we experience karmic retributions.
The longer we stay within the six realms of rebirth, the more difficult it is for us to be liberated. Only by diligently practising Buddhism and cultivating our minds, as well as enduring hardships and overcoming challenges on the journey, would we then return to our true Buddhahood.
Master Lu: Hello!
Caller: Master! Hello Master! Would you please have a look at my father’s health condition. He was born in 1948, Year of the Rat. Please focus on the head region.
Master Lu: I can tell you, there are blockages in his brain blood vessels!
Caller: Yes! That’s so correct! That’s so correct!
Master Lu: In other words, there are potential problems such as a minor stroke or cerebral thrombosis.
Caller: He already has some of the symptoms.
Master Lu: In fact the blockages in his brain blood vessels are due to the blood being overly viscous. In the past, he had too much greasy food that are high in cholesterol.
Caller: Yes, that’s right! That’s right, yes!
Master Lu: When he was young, he wasn’t careful with his diet!
Caller: Yes, when he was young, he ate whatever he wanted!
Master Lu: Ey. This type of karmic retribution happens at an old age! Do you understand?
Caller: I understand. I’ve stopped him from having live seafood now, and this morning we even performed Life Liberation!
Master Lu: Very good! He’s a good person, but he has a bad temper!
Caller: His temper is very bad!
Master Lu: It will require a lot of effort in order to save him…
Caller: Master, he had a dream before. In the dream, he saw the Buddha discussing with Guan Yin Bodhisattva about how to use the purification vase. He was sitting under a Bodhi tree beside Guan Yin Bodhisattva at that time. When the conversation finished, Guan Yin Bodhisattva turned to my father and said, “I am leaving now. If you have any difficulties in the future, you can ask me.”
Master Lu: It is clear from the dream that you father must be in a position of influence.
Caller: Yes, yes!
Master Lu: Ey. This is why we should accumulate merits and virtues! Usually we come to be in influential positions because of our merits accumulated from previous lives. If we don’t appreciate it, then the merits will be transformed and eventually become depleted as we live our lives. In the end, our merits will be completely drained and our lives will end.
