HOW DO DHARMA CULTIVATORS SHIELD AND BLESS THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS
With Dharma cultivator within a household, the family will be protected. To what extent can the blessings be imparted to our family members? Is it measured by the amount of negative karma eliminated or any other standard?
Master Jun Hong Lu:
“Shielding family members at home” could be explained in the following example: when you practise the Dharma diligently and profoundly to such an extent that your family members perceived you as having attained Buddhahood, which in turn transform them to be more cultured and less quarrelsome; such transformation in them is a form of shelter for them. Another form of blessing is when they are influenced by you and follow suit to become a Dharma cultivator themselves. By doing so, their negative karmic debts will also be eliminated very quickly. “Shielding or Protection” does not mean you are able to use your aura to bless them; but using your aura, virtues, kindness and good deeds to influence them into Dharma cultivation.
