Deepest gratitude to the Greatly Merciful and Greatly Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva, to the merciful Master Lu, and to all Dharma Defenders!
Nothing could express how grateful I am. I would be committed to acting as one of Guan Yin Bodhisattva’s thousand arms and thousand eyes to propagate Buddhism and to save more people. Several months ago, I noticed that my five-year-old son was blinking his eyes abnormally and the corner of this mouth was twitching. After conducting some research on the Internet, I realized that it was tic disorder. I was worried because I knew that it was karmic disease. I believed that by adopting the Triple Gems of Guan Yin Citta, Guan Yin Bodhisattva would bless my son and cure his disease. However, since I hadn’t practised Guan Yin Citta for a very long time, I had many karmic debts to repay as well. As a result, I didn’t recite enough Little Houses for my son’s karmic creditors. Once my son had to stay in the hospital due to a high fever and my mother-in-law went to take care of him. She was very sad when she saw my son’s facial twitching, and asked me how she could help. I told her that Little Houses would help. Even though my mother-in-law hadn’t been very dedicated in her practice, in order to help her grandson, she made a vow to offer 108 Little Houses to my son’s karmic creditors. Although my son was sick, I was very delighted that my mother-in-law became perseverant in her practice!
I would like all dharma practitioners to come to the realisation that, our affliction or worry is a catalyst of enlightenment. Misfortunes in our life could lead us to happiness, if we could stay strong and be persistent in cultivating our heart. As my son experienced constant high fever while he was in the hospital, I had no time to recite Little Houses for his karmic creditors. One of my Buddhist friends burnt 7 Little Houses for my son. I was very grateful towards her. When we are capable of helping others, we should try our best because we will never know when we will need a hand from the others. Helping the others could eventually result in helping ourselves. Not long after, my son’s fever was gone and was discharged from hospital. We have been very committed in our Buddhist practice. Several days ago, my husband told me that he dreamt of a doctor removing a big tumour from my son’s back. I was very excited as I knew that it must be Guan Yin Bodhisattva helping my son with his disease. I cannot express my gratefulness. My son’s twitching symptoms were gone ever since. Such a disease is very hard to cure from a medical perspective! How lucky we are to have the opportunity to learn and to practise Guan Yin Citta! We must cherish such opportunity and to introduce it to more people. I have made a vow to follow Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Master Lu to practise and to propagate Guan Yin Citta. I would keep cultivating myself and correcting my shortcomings, become a good disciple of Guan Yin Bodhisattva, and obtain ultimate happiness through my practice.
