WHY DO WE NEED TO RECITE SO MANY SCRIPTURES?
How are you, Master? The rationale behind Buddhist practitioners of Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door reciting so many scriptures is to help awaken our innate Buddha nature.
Master Jun Hong Lu:
What you just said is absolutely right! Why Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door requires us to recite so many scriptures? It is to awaken our innate Buddha nature. How can we communicate with Bodhisattva if we do not perform recitation? It’s just like we can’t communicate with others if we do not speak. Hence, if we wish to communicate with Bodhisattva, we must perform recitation, as all scriptures are teachings of Bodhisattvas. Do you understand?
