Master Jun Hong Lu’s Discourse 

(Question 176)

16 August 2017

ALLOW 15 MINUTES AFTER BOWEL MOVEMENT BEFORE OFFERING PRAYERS

Question: Previously, Master said after bowel movements we need to observe a 15 minute interval before offering prayers to Bodhisattva, or perform recitations.  Yet, in a more recent radio program Master advised us we can actually proceed with recitations, but still need to wait 15 minutes before offering prayers, is this correct?

Answer:  That is  right.  After a bowel movement, a negative energy field clings to our body. Therefore, we need to wait  15 minutes before offering prayers to Bodhisattva.  However, it is still suitable to  undertake recitations.
