(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
WHAT SHOULD WE DO WHEN WE ENCOUNTER AN INEXTRICABLE SITUATION
Caller: Master Lu, if we are unable to extricate ourselves from entanglement or hit a bottleneck which hinders us from achieving a breakthrough despite understanding the principles and rationale behind it, how do we overcome it? Master Lu, please enlighten us.
Master Jun Hong Lu: This is due to heavy negative karma. People with heavy negative karma will not be able to attain realisation or breakthrough obstacles. They should pray to Guan Yin Bodhisattva for blessings to help resolve and alleviate their problems through the recitation of the Heart Sutras.
Caller: Master Lu, you have advised that we recite the Heart Sutra to pray for enlightenment in a particular matter. Is this to be done as part of our daily homework or do we need to recite another 108 times of the Heart Sutra after completing our daily recitation?
Master Lu: Both are acceptable. When performing daily recitation, you can add a statement going “Guan Yin Bodhisattva, please have mercy and enlighten me.” You will be enlightened immediately —Bodhisattva will give you an opportunity to understand many things in an instant.
Caller: I understand now. Thank you for answering my question, Master Lu.
