GUIDE TO MAKING VOWS FOR BEGINNERS WHO ARE CRITICALLY ILL / STRICKEN BY CANCER TO HELP RECOVERY

Caller:  There is a discourse being disseminated on the internet that goes, “Master Lu advises those with health issues, including critical illnesses and cancer, that if you wish to recover it is essential to make the following vows:”

  1. To be a full vegetarian your whole life
  2. To refrain from the act of killing for your whole life
  3. To perform the liberation of captives (more than 10,000)
  4. To offer 1000 Little Houses to repay karmic debts
  5. To share testimonials to save other sentient beings upon recovery

May I know if it is alright for Buddhist friends to use the points above as a model answer to be disseminated to Buddhist friends who are terminally ill and who have just started on their cultivation journey?

Master Jun Hong Lu:  Yes, they may do so as these are the basic obligations aside from those additional ones that I may have specifically advised others.  Once you are stricken with cancer, you will need to do the above.  Failure to do so will render the making of any other “Greater” vows worthless.
