KEY TO EFFICACIOUS PRAYER WHEN OFFERING FIRST INCENSE
Question: What is the key to efficacious prayer when we are offering the First Incense in Chinese New Year Eve? Is it only efficacious when we make vows, perform recitation and virtuous deeds? If gastric diseases are considered spiritual diseases due to karmic obstacles, will our prayer for curing the diseases be efficacious? Since Bodhisattva does not intervene with the laws of cause and effect, what is the prerequisite for our prayer to be answered during the offering of the First Incense?
Answer: Sincerity can work wonders. Keep your mind empty, pray desperately and persistently, and your prayers may be answered on the same day.< About Buddhist Altar
