Q7: WHAT SHOULD A PERSON WHO IS HALF-HEARTED IN MAKING VOWS, AND PERFORMING RECITATIONS DO WHEN FACING KARMIC OBSTACLES?

Q: For a person who has yet to have complete faith in Buddhism, or who hasn’t begun performing recitations, what should they do after breaking a vow they have made?

A: When a person is faced with karmic obstacles, for instance if he or she did something wrong and is only half-hearted when making vows and performing recitations, it is best to ask them to immediately recite the Eighty-Eight Buddhas Great Repentance (Lifo) to repent, no matter how tired they are.  This is because if a person has committed a crime, they will be considered guilty whether or not they are aware of the governing laws.
