IT IS MORE EFFICACIOUS TO STATE “I REPENT FOR (MATTER ON HAND)” FOR EVERY EIGHTY-EIGHT BUDDHAS GREAT REPENTANCE WE RECITE
Question: Master mentioned in the radio program that many people would have to say the prayer, “I repent for (matter on hand)” for every Eighty-Eight Buddhas Great Repentance that they recite to be more efficacious. May I know if this is applicable for the specific case or can it be applied to everyone?
Answer: It is applicable to all. For every instance of Eighty-Eight Buddhas Great Repentance you recite, you may say the prayer, “I repent for (the matter on hand)”. Your prayer will be heard by Bodhisattvas and Dharma Protectors, and your karma will be cleared. It is human to err, so we have to keep repenting by saying “I’m sorry” and apologise repeatedly. Over time, the other party will forgive you and say, “Let bygones be bygones and not keep speaking of the past”. Repent constantly and we will be able to get over the matter quickly. Nowadays, there are many people who refuse to admit their mistakes and unwilling to apologise even when they are in the wrong.< About Performing Recitation
