(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
HOW SOON WILL BAD KARMA BE NOTED AND HOW TO ELIMINATE NEGATIVE KARMA IMMEDIATELY THROUGH REPENTANCE
Caller: Master Lu, is there a point when Dharma protectors will start recording the karma residing in our cognitive world? Do they do it at daily at regular intervals? What about the officials from the underworld? How frequently do they update their records? Please enlighten us.
Master Jun Hong Lu: No physical recording by Dharma protectors is required as you have all the records stored within your mind. The way Dharma protectors record is by sight. For example, if you turn on the recording mode of your mobile phone 24 hours a day, all your conversations throughout the day will be recorded.
Caller: Yes. That’s right.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Where the need arises, you may refer to the recorder to verify the contents again. Thus, you are the one who captures records of all your own doings. It is not necessary for Dharma protectors to do the recording. There is no escape. When the time is due, Dharma protectors will go through entire records to sort out the respective karmas you have created – both good and bad.
Caller: I understand. Master Lu, is there any way we could repent and remove the bad karma before Dharma protectors and officials from underworld conduct their investigations on us? How many of the Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance do we have to recite?
Master Jun Hong Lu: As I have mentioned before, for every single mistake made, you have to repent as soon as possible, ideally within five minutes. And within one hour, head down to our centre to recite the Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance seven times before Guanyin Bodhisattva.
Caller: What about the Sapta Atitabuddha Karasaniya Dharani Sutra (Qi Fo Mie Zui Zhen Yen)?
Master Jun Hong Lu: You may recite the sutra when you are heading home from the scene. For example, if you got into a fight and out of concern for your safety, you could recite Sapta Atitabuddha Karasaniya Dharani on your way home. Once you reach home, offer your prayer to Bodhisattva with incense and start reciting your Eighty-eight Buddhas Great Repentance. We used to have a Buddhist friend who got into a heated argument with her husband and was on the verge of divorce. But when her husband saw her repenting to Bodhisattva before their altar, he simmered down and eventually forgave her. Soon, they made up and are as loving as before.
Caller: Thank you, Master Lu, for your compassionate sharing.< About Spiritual Cultivation
