(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
WHEN WE HAVE NIGHTMARES, WHAT SUTRAS/MANTRAS SHOULD WE RECITE?
Caller: Master Lu, you mentioned before that if we have nightmares or dreams of being pinned down by foreign spirit, we will have to perform recitation right away, all through the night. This will help us evade a lot of calamities. As Buddhist practitioners, under such circumstances, what sutras/mantras should we recite?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Recite the Great Compassion Mantra right away. That is all you can do in the middle of the night. The spirit may be of a kind nature, but due to the fact that you are in a state of fear, you may need to recite this sutra to request the spirit to leave. Bear in mind, your intention is not to wage war, rather, you are making a request for them to leave. This will be made possible as you possess the light in you. Following that, you may offer Little House when you wake up the next morning.< About Performing Recitation
