RECITATION OF THE GREAT COMPASSION MANTRA AFTER CHECKING INTO A HOTEL ROOM
Master, you advised us, when we check into a hotel room, we need to recite the Great Compassion Mantra once for each of the four walls in the room. If a few Buddhist friends are sharing the same room, can they split the recitation such that each person recites the Great Compassion Mantra once for only one of the four walls?
When a few people are reciting the Great Compassion Mantra together, the effect is as good as that of group cultivation. The energy field in the hotel room will naturally be improved, and so it is unnecessary for each person to recite it for all four walls. However, when you are staying alone in a hotel room, as you have less spiritual power on your own, you will need to recite the Great Compassion Mantra one wall at a time, facing each of the four walls in turn. On an occasion where a few people are reciting the mantra together, it is unnecessary to do this as the ‘sound of Buddha’ surrounds and reverberates around the room. As such, each person may recite the Great Compassion Mantra three times.
