HOW TO UNTIE KARMIC KNOTS BETWEEN PARENTS AND CHILDREN
Caller: Master Lu, you often mention we need to show filial piety towards our parents. Many children and parents have deep karmic knots, where parents owe their children from previous lives, and now these children are collecting their karmic dues. If the children treat the parents with filial piety as opposed to being disrespectful, it is the parents’ duty to take good care of their children. Bringing the children up property eliminates karmic debts, so the family can eventually resolve any bad karmic issues they have. In terms of cause and effect, can karmic knots between parents and their children be explained this way?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Correct. These parents owe their children, but instead of seeking repayments from their parents, the children treat their parents very well. Isn’t this purifying evil and turning it into good? Eventually, in the next life the children and their parents will no longer be in debt to one another, or the children mightn’t be born into this same family again.
Caller: I understand. However, with additional recitations of the Heart Sutra and Chieh Chieh Chou, can I eliminate these bad karmic issues more quickly?
Master Jun Hong Lu: You are absolutely right!
