Guan Yin Citta has saved my child
January 25th, 2016
Dharma Practitioner: Jianhao Wang, Kuantan, Pahang State, Malaysia
I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to the Greatly Merciful and Greatly Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva!
My name is Jianhao Wang. I am from Kuantan, Pahang, Malyasia. I began to practice Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door in late 2012. At that time, my grandfather-in-law was seriously ill. I happened to find many inspirational stories shared by different fellow Buddhist practitioners of Guan Yin Citta on the Internet and started sutra chanting, following the method explained on the Internet.
I had many inspirational experiences immediately after I started sutra chanting. Firstly I was overjoyed to be accepted as Master Jun Hong Lu’s disciple in Kula Lumpur in March last year. Secondly, my wife, who was pregnant in August last year, had a smooth delivery and our baby boy was born at noon on April 6th 2015. This was all thanks to the merciful blessings of Guan Yin Bodhisattva, my wife had
However the happiness of becoming a parent only lasted for several minutes. Immediately after our son was born, we noticed his body was blue. . He was diagnosed with Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA). TGA patients suffer fatal symptoms of oxygen deficiency. . A normal blood oxygen level in humans is meant to be at 100%, whereas our son’s was only at 50-55%. As we all know, oxygen is vital in order for humans to survive. Unfortunately, the element that is unconsciously and readily available for the average human being was now a hard earned luxury for my son.
The only treatment for TGA is heart surgery. We were advised that our son have the operation as soon as possible to avoid organ failure, cardiac failure and, in the worst-case senario, brain death due to oxygen deficiency. Surveys show that 90% of TGA patients die within one month of diagnosis due to delayed treatment.
That night our son was transferred to Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Klang (HTAR) for surgery. I waited outside the Intensive Care Unit and recited the Great Compassion Mantra continuously and prayed to Guan Yin Bodhisattva to help my son.
The doctor was pessimistic about our son’s recovery due to his blood pressure and blood oxygen level remaining at low levels. He showed no visible improvements, even when the maximum dose of cardiac stimulant had been applied. The doctor asked us to prepare for the worst. After hearing this, I immediately thought of life liberation.
We are blessed with our timing as the next day was the holy birthday of Guan Yin Bodhisattva and there were life liberation ceremonies taking place.
We released about 1000 fish the next morning. Around 8 o’clock that day we received good news from the doctor. Two specialists from IJN (Institut Jantung Negara, National Heart Institute) had decided to make a special exception and were going to perform a pericardiocentesis on our son. The doctor said such an exception had been unheard of in her over 10 years service as a medical practitioner.
My son’s blood oxygen level was brought up to 80% safety level after the two-hour operation. The operation relieved him from the fatal symptoms and suffering that had arisen due to oxygen deficiency during the hospital transfer.
On the third dayMaster Jun Hong Lu, Master Jun Hong Lu performed a totem reading for my son and told us that our son was in great danger. We needed to offer 3000 to4000 pieces of Little Houses and liberate 20,000 fishes.
I visited the Guan Yin Hall immediately and made a vow to Guan Yin Bodhisattva.I vowed that both my son and I would adopt a full vegetarian diet and abstain from killing animals for the rest of our lives. We would also liberate 20,000 fishes and share our experience with others in order to save more predestined beings.
We instantly started to recite the Little Houses to repay karmic debts. In the following days, our son got better and better and gradually became less dependent on the respiratory apparatus. He began to drink breast milk and ceased to need any cardiac stimulant injections within seven days.
On the seventh day, my wife dreamed about a karmic creditor. He told her he was able to go travelling as he had received a large sum of money,He also said he wanted us to keep offer more Little Houses to him. At the time, we were only offering 16 Little Houses. This dream proved that offering Little Houses was a way to repay karmic debts. Guan Yin Citta is truly effective!
In the second week, there was still no ward bed available at IJN. It was extremely hard to wait for one to become vacant. While we were waiting, we liberated 5000 fishes and diligently recited Little Houses.
At noon on April 24th 2015, 18 days after our son’s birth, he was finally transferred to the National Heart Centre. At the time his body was tinged yellow with jaundice.
After four days, the jaundice disappeared. We were told that the operation would be on schedule and it was estimated to take 5-7 hours. The TGA operation is the most difficult and complicated for infant cardiac surgery. If it succeeded, it would be a permanent cure.
On the 21st day since birth, the operation was performed. We kept reciting the Great Compassion Mantra throughout the operation. Six hours later, the operation was successfully completed.
Although there was a permanent 10-centimeter scar left on our son’s body, we saw him restoring to normal body color and his blood oxygen levels return to 100%. Nothing could express our gratitude towards Guan Yin Bodhisattva for her merciful salvation of our son!
The night of the operation, I had a wonderful dream. I dreamed that the Medicine Buddha was preparing herbal medicine and fed my son with it at his bedside.
The following day after the TGA operation, I looked up tothe sky and saw that there was a halo around the sun, as well as two long stretches of interlaced cloud above IJN. They looked like my son’s interlaced artery blood vessels.
After a 10-day observation in the IJN Intensive Care Unit, our son was discharged from the hospital on his 38th day of life,.
Our son’s disease made us realise that karma is real. The probability of having a child with infant congenital heart disease is only 1%, and unfortunately we happened to be in that 1%. There was a moment when we were in utter despair at our reality: “why us?”
However, we are now in deepest appreciation. We are lucky to be firm believers of Buddhism. We have unshaken faith in Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door. We believe in karma and the laws of cause and effect. The unfortunate circumstances we went through were probably due to of the karmic debts of my family, as the last two generations made a living through fishing.
So far, we have liberated 12.500 fish in total.
I have been near the hospital every day since my son was sick, and have witnessed many sufferings. I sincerely hope that everybody can take the opportunity to practice Buddhism, begin sutra-chanting, adopt a vegetarian diet and perform life liberation. I wish that my personal experience can strengthen your faith and resolution in practicing Guan Yin Citta.
My wife and I will always be grateful that we were able to discover and to practice Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door. We saved our son from great danger by adopting the three golden practices: reciting sutras/mantras, making vows, and performing life liberation. Our son is now very healthy, clever and sensible. Both my son and I will be committed to practicing Guan Yin Citta for the rest of our lives. We will perform good deeds and abstain from evil actions. We will also try our best to help as many people as possible by introducing Buddhism to them.
Thank you very much!
