WHY IS IT NECESSARY FOR US TO MENTION OUR PRAYER REQUEST REPEATEDLY WHEN WE PRAY?
Caller: Master Lu, when we are praying for something, we just have to say it once and Bodhisattva will know. If so, why do we have to repeat our prayer a few times to Bodhisattva?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Let me ask you a question. Regardless of what you are doing, don’t you think it’s helpful to have more frequent communication as people may tend to forget?
Caller: Yes, indeed.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Although Bodhisattva will never forget, however, if you have heavy negative karma, Bodhisattva may not be able to hear you. Thus, if you repeat yourself a couple more times, Bodhisattva may be able to hear your prayers. For example, it’s common to hear people repeating themselves while communicating via walkie-talkie, “Please respond, please respond ….” When the opposite party can’t hear you, don’t you have to repeat a few times?
