(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
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.
