My aunt experienced an outbreak of heart attack during the dharma function in Penang and was placed in ICU thereafter. During the fearful 17 hours, we made vows and offered more than 200 Little Houses and released 3000 fishes. On the same night, I dreamt about my aunt being released from hell. Soon after that, my aunt regained her health magically and arrived in China by plane safely.
Deepest gratitude to the Guan Yin Bodhisattva and to Master Lu who granted my aunt a new lease on life.
Deepest gratitude to the Great Merciful and Great Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva!
Deepest gratitude to all Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and dharma defenders!
Deepest gratitude to the Merciful Master Lu!
On 22 January 2015, my aunt became a disciple of Master Lu. During the ceremony, Master Lu told her that she had committed a lot of killings and her days were numbered. She must perform more life liberations and repent deeply for her sins. However, she did not take Master Lu’s words seriously after the ceremony.
On the 24th of January, during the dharma function, she suddenly felt a lot of pressure in her heart and her lung and experienced difficulty in breathing. A doctor on scene helped her to reduce her symptoms. During totem enquiry, a senior follower helped her to ask Master Lu for instructions. Master Lu blessed her with his energy and said she needed to offer 46 Little Houses for her karmic creditors. After the dharma function, she only made a vow to offer 49 Little Houses but didn’t make a grand vow. She always thought that she would be fine once she had attended the dharma function and become a disciple of Master Lu.
On the 25th of January, she experienced another acute outbreak of heart attack. The reception of the hotel called an ambulance. After some initial examination and enquiry in the hospital, my aunt was placed in ICU. The attending doctor diagnosed that she had a severe heart attack, coronary heart disease, diabetes and fluids in her lung. Her situation was in great danger.
On the second day upon our visit to the hospital, the doctor said, as the patient’s condition was very serious, she could not be discharged from the hospital. If the oxygen breathing apparatus was removed from her and she then took a flight, the consequence would be too dreadful to imagine. Her life would be under very high risk.
In the last minute, my mother and I prayed to the Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Master Lu for help. Master Lu was so merciful that he inspected my aunt’s totem. The result was: my aunt was already dragged down to hell. She owed a lot of karmic debts. She needed to release 3000 fishes and offered 180 Little Houses to her karmic creditors to save her life first. If she died this time, she would end up in hell. The secretariat instructed us to contact another senior dharma follower. The follower then brought us to the local Guan Yin Tang and arranged life liberation on the next day. We couldn’t help crying after we entered Guan Yin Tang. I made a vow immediately that we would release 3000 fishes for my aunt the next day, offer 180 Little Houses to her karmic creditors as soon as possible, and I would transfer part of my merits of attending the dharma function to my aunt. I also took out my aunt’s disciple certificate and prayed to the Guan Yin Bodhisattva for helping her to go back to China safely. We had a firm belief in the Guan Yin Bodhisattva and we believed that the merciful Guan Yin Bodhisattva would save us from pain and grant our wish. After I raised my head from my prayer, I saw a big bright circle on the top of the sculpture of the Guan Yin Bodhisattva, her body was shining with golden light and she was smiling and nodding at me. I found it hard to believe and thought that my tears must have blurred my eyes. I rubbed my eyes and watched again, I noticed that the Guan Yin Bodhisattva was really smiling at me! Nothing could express my gratitude. I knew that my aunt would be saved. After I told the senior followers in the local Guan Yin Tang of what had happened, they kindly used different methods to ask for help from other dharma followers. Soon after that, many dharma followers from all over the world who attended Master Lu’s dharma function came to Guan Yin Tang to help my aunt to read Little Houses. Some of them even made a trip to bring us Little Houses.
On the next day, which was the Day of Enlightenment of Gautama Buddha, we released 3000 fishes for my aunt. We sincerely prayed to the Gautama Buddha and to the Guan Yin Bodhisattva, and performed life liberation for Master Lu to thank him for his merciful help. Another dharma follower told us that during our life liberation, he saw the Gautama Buddha sitting up straight in the sky and Master Lu’s body of essence was standing behind the Gautama Buddha and smiling at us. After life liberation, we returned to Guan Yin Tang and continued to offer Little Houses to my aunt’s karmic creditors. Many other dharma followers were also helping to recite Little Houses. Within less than 20 hours, we offered more than 200 Little Houses in total. We were all very moved by the kindness of everyone.
At noon time, we were totally shocked as soon as we entered ICU: my aunt didn’t need to use the oxygen breathing apparatus. She was sitting on the bed freshly and talk to us energetically. She was nothing like an ICU patient. She told us that she was fine and showed her gratitude towards the Guan Yin Bodhisattva and everything. On the previous night, she had two dreams. In the first dream, she was placed in one cubicle among many other cubicles in hell and she was released from the cubicle and sent to the exit by an officer. In the second dream, while she was lying down, she felt that her body had experienced tremendous changes and was completely renewed. There are millions of little bugs flying out from her body in high speed. We were deeply impressed by the two dreams she had!
My aunt’s karmic debts have been greatly reduced, which helped her to get through such a karmic pass. Without the blessing of the Guan Yin Bodhisattva and the 200 Little Houses that were offered within 2 days, my aunt would never have recovered. It was so incredible to witness such a miracle happening in 17 hours. The attending doctor instructed us that my aunt could be discharged from the hospital soon. She would be transferred to a general ward and could take a plane on the next day. The fluids in her lung were gone, her diabetes was cured and her breathing was normal. He also couldn’t believe that my aunt could be recovered within such a short period of time. From his words and facial expressions, we can tell that he was deeply impressed. We couldn’t express how thankful we were towards the Great Merciful and Great Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva and to Master Lu for bringing my aunt back from hell and granting her a new lease on life. We would also like to thank all the dharma followers who helped to create such a miracle. I hereby extend my sincerest appreciation to the dharma followers in Malaysia who helped to read the Great Compassion Mantra for my aunt; and all the dharma followers from Malaysia, Singapore, Beijing, Shanghai and Europe who kindly offered Little Houses to save my aunt’s life.
After being transferred to general ward, my aunt had another two dreams. In the first dream, she was brought back to earth from hell. There was a path in front of her and a lot of people were kneeling down on both sides of the path and crying. She felt that it was a funeral. After walking forward for a few steps, a person saw her and said to her: “Finally you are back. You really scared us.” In the second dream, she saw two cows. One of them was a calf. Her intuition suggested her that she would be reborn into the realm of animal if she died at the time.
Those two dreams prompted her to understand the impermanence of life and to believe in the law of causality and rebirth. After experiencing such a life and death crisis, she has developed a firm belief in Buddhism and would practice with great dedication. She would follow the Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Master Lu during her practice, make grand vows, repent for her sins and use herself as an example to enlighten more people.
I would also like to thank the dharma followers in Penang who assisted us in the hospital discharge procedures. Every dharma follower in the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door helped us kindly as if we were their close relatives. We were cared for even though we were in a foreign country. We arrived in Beijing safely by plane the next day.
My aunt shared her experience upon arrival in China. On the two nights while she stayed in the hospital, she kept praying to the Guan Yin Bodhisattva for help. Based on Chinese tradition, at the time, she was experiencing a very danger moment in her life according to her age and birth time. Had she stayed in China and not attended Master Lu’s dharma function or became a disciple of Master Lu, she might have left us and died. Please believe in Buddhism and make good use of every minute to recite scriptures, repent for our sins and to introduce Buddhism to other people. We should often listen to Master Lu’s radio programs and continue to make vows, recite scriptures and perform life liberation. We should also bear Master Lu’s instructions in mind and offered Little Houses to our karmic creditors on time if the last digit of our age is 3, 6 or 9. We have to be sincere and genuine in our Buddhist practice, make grand vows, repent for our mistakes, perform life liberation, recite scriptures and propagate Buddhism. Thank you everyone.
Deepest gratitude to the Great Merciful and Great Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva, to the merciful Master Lu, and to all Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and Dharma Defenders!
