(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
BUDDHIST PRACTITIONERS SHOULD SEEK HELP OF BODHISATTVAS WHEN ENCOUNTERING INSURMOUNTABLE DIFFICULTIES
Caller: Master Lu, one of our fellow practitioners has this perception based on personal experience, which we are not sure if it is true. Kindly advise us, Master Lu. Sometimes we are faced with obstacles at work which will lead to losses if we do not seek the help of Bodhisattvas. However, when we seek the help of Bodhisattvas, things will improve in a short period of time and eventually the issues will be resolved. As Buddhist practitioners, should we or should we not seek the help of Bodhisattvas when we encounter insurmountable difficulties?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Of course you should seek the help of Bodhisattvas. Otherwise, what’s the point of praying to Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and reciting Buddhist scriptures? It’s very simple. Do you think Bodhisattvas want you to suffer? Bodhisattvas will feel the sadness for your suffering. When Master see you suffering, will I be upset?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Then what is my purpose of teaching you how to recite Buddhist scriptures? Asking you to recite Buddhist scriptures is to save you from suffering, so that you can set your mind free. It’s that simple.< About Spiritual Cultivation
