(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
WHEN THE HEART IS UNIFIED WITH BUDDHA IN RECITATION, KARMIC OBSTACLES WILL BE ELIMINATED
Caller: Master, you mentioned in your book “Buddhism in Plain Terms” that through recitation of scripture, we are able to eliminate karmic obstacles. I wish to understand, how the compassion and resolve found in the Bodhisattva’s scripture, and our own actions, speech and thoughts during recitation coalesce, to become functional, rendering wisdom to sentient beings and eliminating karmic obstacles? Please enlighten us, Master.
Master Jun Hong Lu: It calls for the unification of the heart with Buddha. When you only think of Buddha, your mind will be filled with Buddha; and when your life is guided by the cognition of Buddha, you would have attained “unification of the heart with Buddha” by virtue of your heart being in unison with that of Buddha.< About Performing Recitation
