MASTER JUN HONG LU’S DISCOURSE ON THE COMMEMORATION OF GUAN YIN BODHISATTVA’S BIRTHDAY
Caller: Master Jun Hong Lu, this coming Sunday will be the commemoration of Guan Yin Bodhisattva’s birthday. Please give us a few words about this day.
Master Jun Hong Lu: This Sunday is Guan Yin Bodhisattva’s birthday. The compassionate heavenly mother of ours has given us so much. We could never possibly repay what she has given us in this very life time. The only thing we can do is to never let our beloved Mother down. Let us promote her spirit of compassion. For me personally, my goal is to promote traditional Chinese culture, wisdom and the compassionate spirit of Guan Yin Bodhisattva to every corner of the world.
May there be more compassion and less hatred in this world. The world today is in a state of turmoil. I read a news report this morning that there was only one day in March with no bloodshed due to terrorist attacks. Since the New Year’s Day in 2016, there were only 9 days that the world was spared from calamities. News like this is truly chilling. We are all the inhabitants of Planet Earth. Why are we killing each other? We must use the compassion of Guan Yin Bodhisattva to save more sentient beings, allowing more to be emancipated spiritually, be freed from suffering and gain happiness.
Their feelings of hatred, resentment and selfishness have not only harmed themselves but also the kind-hearted people on earth.
Let us wish for world peace and may the birthday of Guan Yin Bodhisattva motivate us to have more compassion towards all sentient beings and to help more predestined sentient beings in this world. Our ultimate goal is for sentient beings to be freed from suffering, to gain happiness and to be liberated from the Six Realm of Rebirths.
Caller: Indeed. Thank you Master for your teachings. May we fill the world with the love of Guan Yin Bodhisattva.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes, that is very important.< About Festival and Special Days
