Wenda20131108 37:00 Things we need to be cautious about while attending a funeral
Female caller: If we have to attend a funeral, what are the things that we need to be cautious about?
Master Lu: Firstly, attending a funeral is not good. (But at times, we have to attend.) Then just attend! In the past, we would have to “step across the ring of fire” and do not go straight home after attending a funeral. Nowadays, after the memorial service, it’s best not to head straight back home. Rather, you can stroll around the shopping centre. (Some elderly would suggest that we bring along some matchsticks or scissors with us when attending a funeral.) No, no, these items are used to fight with spirits, don’t do it. Wearing a Guan Yin Bodhisattva amulet will do, and you shall not fear. (Oh, you mean the amulet in the form of a card, or the one in the form of a pendant?) The pendant type of amulet will do. If you wear those pendant amulets blessed by Master Lu, you do not need to fear anymore wherever you go. (OK, can I put it in my pocket?) Yes, you can.
