(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
ALL SUTRAS & MANTRAS COULD BE RECITED AT CROSSROADS; DO NOT RECITE THE HEART SUTRA OR THE AMITABHA PURE LAND REBIRTH MANTRA WHILE STAYING OUT AT NIGHT
Caller: Is it true that when we perform recitations outdoor, Heart Sutra (Xin Jing) and Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra (Wang Sheng Zhou) are prohibited while we are going through a crossroad or a street?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Who said so?
Caller: I read from the circulations in the chat group, thus, I would like to confirm.
Master Jun Hong Lu: You may recite any scriptures during daytime. During night-time, do not recite the Heart Sutra but recite the Great Compassion Mantra instead. It is alright to recite all sutras and mantras when crossing the road.
Caller: Okay, when we are going through a crossroad or a street at night, we cannot recite the Heart Sutra and the Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra, can we?
Master Jun Hong Lu: You are not supposed to recite these two scriptures at night in the first place.
Caller: Alright, thank you.
Master Jun Hong Lu: In fact, you are not supposed to recite the two scriptures at all while you are walking outdoor at night.< About Performing Recitation
