MASTER LU’S DISCOURSE: THREE CONDITIONS TO FULFIL IN ORDER TO ASCEND TO BODHISATTVA REALM
Master Jun Hong Lu:
Please remember, there are three conditions to fulfil in order to ascend to Bodhisattva Realm:
2) Dharma Cultivation;
3) Great Vows.
In fact, this information is considered a mystery of heaven and I have just revealed it today. All the conditions listed are indispensable. Firstly, great vows. Many Buddhist cultivators lack motivation and hardly progress after practising for some time. Such cultivators will not be able to ascend to higher realm.
Secondly, your current state of cultivation. One must cultivate in a lawful manner without slackening or retrograding in their cultivation, and not turning a blind eye to people who are in mortal danger. There was a saying in the past, “I just have to discipline myself well…”, does this mean cultivate earnestly? Let me tell you, refusal to lift your fingers to save someone in mortal danger is a sin. Ignoring the sufferings of people before your eyes and not offering a helping hand is inhumane; and because you do not have a compassionate heart, thus, you will not be able to attain the state of Bodhisattva.
Lastly, foundation. If you do not have a sound foundation, you will never be able to ascend to the upper realms.< About Spiritual Cultivation
