(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
NEGATIVE KARMA IS A BY-PRODUCT OF UN-WHOLESOME THOUGHTS. ACQUIRE EMPTINESS OF MIND AS TAUGHT IN BUDDHISM OR LEARN TO ONLY GENERATE KIND THOUGHTS
Master Jun Hong Lu:
Please remember that unwholesome thoughts led to the creation of negative karma. It is our thoughts that led to the chained reactions in our body, actions, and speeches. Therefore, it is imperative to learn empty mindedness in Buddhist cultivation. Without any thoughts in mind, you will not create any karma. If you have thoughts surfacing in your mind, they have to be wholesome. There are some people with unwholesome thoughts, thus, created negative karma for themselves. To create karma is to plant a cause. Why do you think a person has such heavy negative karma? It is because he keeps creating it incessantly.
