RECITATION OF BUDDHIST SUTRAS CAN ELIMINATE 8 BILLION LIFE AND DEATH CATASTROPHES
If you are constantly performing recitation throughout your life, you will be able to eliminate eight billion life and death catastrophes. The recitation is not limited to just chanting ‘Amitabha’; it also includes recitation of sutras and mantras. When one hears the word ‘billion’, does it not appear to be plentiful? In other words, a person who spends all his life performing recitation of scripture will be able to dispel many calamities. Do you think disaster and difficulty will befall upon one who recites scripture throughout his life? In the past, the nuns and monks who renounced their commoners’ lifestyle at a very young age, and did their recitation in the temples all their lives; did they encounter any calamity in the temples? Just take a look at how much suffering and calamity we have to endure in the Human Realm. Therefore, Dharma speaks the truth of life. Although you may have committed many bad deeds in your past lives, if you are able to offer your prayers, perform recitation and repent sincerely like the monks and nuns, your grievous sins will gradually be dispelled. For example, to those young Buddhist friends from the Secretariat Department; if they had committed many bad deeds in their past lives, be it in lifestyle, career or family life, and they begin to perform recitation and repentances as well as amassing merits in the Guan Yin Hall daily now, what calamities could befall them? This is how many of the impending disasters are being resolved.
