(Master Jun Hong Lu’s Call-In Radio Program)
RECITATION OF THE HEART SUTRA 108 TIMES FOR A CHILD WHO HAS A PROBLEM CONCENTRATING
Caller: Master Lu, my daughter has begun the recitation of scriptures and Little Houses. She also participated in a group performance during the Singapore Public Talk reciting the Great Compassion Mantra. However, after the public talk, she seems to be slacking off, and is having difficulty paying attention. I am not sure if it is because of her negative karma coming to fruition or another reason. Could Master give her some advice?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Recite the Heart Sutra 108 times.
Caller: A total of 108 times, right?
Master Jun Hong Lu: No.
Caller: Every day?
Master Jun Hong Lu: When you encounter such a situation as this, do a once-off recitation of the Heart Sutra 108 times, and then pray to Guan Yin Bodhisattva as follows, ‘May Guan Yin Bodhisattva help me to temporarily eliminate my karmic obstacles. I will recite (x amount) of Little Houses to repay my karmic debts.’ Now, I just taught you another technique.
Caller: Oh, thank you Master Lu. In this case, how many Little Houses shall I vow to recite?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Generally, 49 or more. When you have recited the Heart Sutra 108 times, the foreign spirit will immediately leave, and your daughter will return back to normal. And, it will be better for you to specify a time frame, for example, ’I will recite 49 Little Houses within one or two weeks.’ Once you have completed the recitation, the problem will be resolved. Everything will then be alright.< About Performing Recitation
