(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
HOW TO IMPROVE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE THROUGH RECITATION
Caller: Master Lu, I have been wishing to improve my academic performance lately. Do you think my current recitations are sufficient?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes, but you will have to strengthen your Heart Sutra (Xin Jing). For the purpose of improving academic performance, you need to recite Heart Sutra and Cundi Dharani (Zhun Ti Shen Zhou).
For Cundi Dharani, recite 49 times. It is very short and you do not need much time to complete it once you memorised it.
Caller: At present, I am reciting 49 times Cundi Dharani and 21 times Sapta Atitabuddha Karasaniya Dharani (Qi Fo Mie Zui Zhen Yan).
Master Jun Hong Lu: But you need to strengthen your Heart Sutra to enhance your wisdom.
Caller: I will do that.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Prior to examination, cut back on non-vegetarian diet. In addition, before recitation, avoid garlic and food that causes bad breath. Do you think Bodhisattva will ever visit when you do your recitation with a breath covered with foul smell?
Caller: Understand. Thank you Master Lu.< About Academics
