SHOULD WE PRAY TO BODHISATTVA IN THE PRESENCE OF A RAINBOW
Master Lu, you mentioned in your discourses that rainbows are the seven-coloured lights of Bodhisattva. You have also stated that if we gaze deeper into rainbows, we may be able to see Bodhisattvas. In that case, is it proper for us to gaze at rainbows in prayer to Bodhisattvas?
Master Jun Hong Lu:
That is alright. Where there are rainbows, Bodhisattvas will be present — only Bodhisattvas are able to emit seven-coloured lights of this kind. From a worldly point of view, rainbows are a natural phenomenon that serve no purpose but for aesthetic appeal. However, a rainbow is actually the very awe-inspiring seven-coloured lights of Bodhisattva shining in the sky.
I understand. Thank you, Master Lu.
