(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
DO NOT SHARE YOUR OWN HOME’S ALTAR PICTURE IN GROUP CHATS
Caller: When fellow group cultivators post each individual’s Bodhisattva picture from their home altars to group chats to encourage each other in their cultivation, is this justifiable?
Master Jun Hong Lu: I feel there is no necessity to do so, as each individual will have their own preference for arranging their altars in their house. It is best not to show them publicly. In their own home they think, “I will arrange it the way I wish to”. Why do you need to post it to the group chat? You are not showing it to Master to have a look. When I see it, I will be able to advise you if the arrangement on the altar is alright or not. Is this correct?
Caller: Yes, Indeed. If I post the picture of my altar publicly, will it affect my own energy field?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes, it will affect it a little. It will not be good if someone reproached you. For example, after you have posted it, it would be good if you received praise from good people. However, if a bad person saw the altar’s picture, “Oh dear, what is this? Gosh, this kind of person is also cultivating Buddhism? How does his family give offerings to the altar?” Then the energy field in your home will not be good.
Caller: You mean when someone sees the picture and they begin to have negative feelings about it, this will affect my altar?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Indeed, it is the energy field. A person who is always being reproached by others will surely get bad luck easily.< About Buddhist Altar
