OVERINDULGENCE IN FOOD AND SLEEP WILL LEAD TO INCREASED IGNORANCE AND LUST

 

Caller: Master Lu, I did not cultivate well recently, and I am ashamed of it.  I feel difficult to correct my shortcomings, and my heart is filled with anger and hatred.  At the same time, I could not get through on the phone and talk to you.  But Bodhisattva is compassionate and has helped me get through today.  I would like to repent to you, Master Lu.

 

Master Jun Hong Lu: Eat less spicy food, understand? 

 

Caller: Yes. I overindulge in food and sleep. 

 

Master Jun Hong Lu: Overindulgence in food and sleep will lead to increased ignorance and lust.  

 

Caller: Yes, I understand. 

 

Master Jun Hong Lu: Sometimes you have to grit your teeth and force yourself to get rid of the bad habits.  You are a Bodhisattva because you are learning from Bodhisattva.  You are a human being, not an animal, don’t you understand it? 

 

Caller: I understand it, Master, I was sorry.  I did not cultivate well.  Please forgive me.

 

Master Jun Hong Lu: OK, perform your recitation diligently.  Bodhisattva has two children – one has never made any mistakes, and the other will correct his mistakes promptly.  Do you understand what I mean? 

 

Caller: Yes, Master.  You work so hard, but I always bother.  I dreamed of you this morning.  In the dream, you taught us Buddhism explained in Plain Terms. 

 

Master Jun Hong Lu: Alright, work hard and learn from your Master.

 

Caller: Thank you, Master Lu.
