(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
WHY DIGESTIVE DISORDER CALLS FOR THE RECITATION OF AMITABHA PURE LAND REBIRTH MANTRA (WANG SHENG ZHOU)?
Caller: Master Lu, you advised one Buddhist practitioner who was suffering from stomach disorder to focus on the recitation of Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra (Wang Sheng Zhou) to eliminate the karmic debts of his digestive system. Is this considered as an isolated case? Or generally is it appropriate for us to target our recitation on whichever part of the body that is unwell?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Though this is an isolated case, it can also be generalised to a certain extent. Please remember, all problems in regards to stomach disorder are related to a person’s diet. Many people who suffer from stomach disorder are due to overindulgence in seafood that are freshly killed. Hence, the recitation of Wang Sheng Zhou is inevitable. When you have digestive disorder, you must recite this mantra.
Caller: You mentioned that the recitation of Wang Sheng Zhou is a must. In this case, do we pray to Guan Yin Bodhisattva to particularly help us transfer our merits to the minor spirits in the stomach? Or should we just make a general request?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Making a general request should suffice. Simply reciting Wang Sheng Zhou may not be able to help you eliminate all karmic debts causing the digestive problem. The combination of this mantra and the offering of Little Houses are necessary.< About Performing Recitation
