Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door

Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door belongs to the Mahayana Buddhist tradition. It encourages people to recite Buddhist scriptures (sutras and mantras) on a daily basis, practise life liberation (that is, saving the lives of beings destined for slaughter), and make great vows to help more people. These three “golden Buddhist practices” lay a solid foundation for improved physical and mental well-being; they have been proved to cure illnesses, resolve relationship conflicts and increase spiritual strength and wisdom.

Using his spiritual power, Master Lu is able to tell anyone’s past, present and future, as long as the person’s year of birth and the Chinese zodiac are provided. His advice is based entirely on the teachings and practices of traditional Buddhism. He asks for nothing in return– which is why Guan Yin Citta has been able to reach over 10 million people in such a short period of time.

The three “golden Buddhist practices”– an effective way to alleviate our suffering

By following the three ‘golden Buddhist practices’ of Guan Yin Citta–reciting Buddhist sutras, practising life liberation, and making vows– we can accumulate merits, which in turn can be used to reduce our karmic debts and clear  karmic obstacles on our life’s journey.

1. Why does reciting Buddhist scripture matter?

Buddhist scriptures (sutras) are the sayings of the Buddha.

When reciting them, you will benefit from the blessings of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.

Recitation will not only help eliminate your negative karma; it will also bring strength, wisdom and inner peace, so that you can overcome all kinds of obstacles.

And it does not cost a cent. All it requires is persistence and wholehearted sincerity. 

Major sutras and mantras for practitioners of Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door

Great Compassion Mantra

This mantra can fulfil wishes, cure illnesses and grant protection to those who recite it. During critical times such as just prior to an operation, it should be recited 21 or 49 times per day–the more the better.

Heart Sutra

Reciting this sutra will help connect you to Guan Yin Bodhisattva. This sutra helps you uncover your wisdom, get along well with people and regain a peaceful state of mind. This sutra can be recited 3 or 7 times per day, but avoid reciting it after 10 pm.

Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance Text

When reciting this text, you repent before many Buddhas of your previous mistakes, such as hurting someone you love, showing disrespect for Buddhas, etc. This text can be recited once or three times per day.

2. The enormous benefit of practising life liberation

Life liberation, or the release of animals, especially those in grave danger of being killed, is a popular practice performed by all schools of Buddhism. Setting animals free helps us cultivate compassion towards all beings, and deepens our understanding that we are all interdependent. It also enhances our generosity.

As many pains and illnesses that we suffer come from the karma of killing, the boundless merits derived from life liberation are particularly relevant to modern people: it helps us attain longevity and health, resolve interpersonal conflicts, be free from violence and disasters, and fulfil our wishes.

3. Keep a promise–the power of a vow

When you make a vow, you will be motivated to fulfil your vow. You become willing to devote yourself to that goal. The vow is, in fact, very strong energy; it can overcome countless obstacles. This is especially true when you make a vow out of compassion. Seeing the suffering and hearing the cries of sentient beings, Bodhisattvas bring forth immense compassion and vow to benefit all sentient beings.
