(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
READING BUDDHISM IN PLAIN TERMS WITH A REMORSEFUL HEART HELPS IN SPEEDY ELIMINATION OF NEGATIVE KARMA
Caller: Master, I had a dream whereby I was feeling remorseful as I was reading the Buddhism in Plain Terms and as a result, the elimination of negative karma was remarkable; I sensed that the elimination of karma was on a subconscious level.
Master Jun Hong Lu: How do you know this?
Caller: I had this dream for the first time after reading a book on “How to help others to awaken spiritually” which I brought back from Singapore. The second time, I was reading the Buddhism in Plain Terms, I could feel that my negative karma was eliminated from my consciousness.
Master Jun Hong Lu: By saying this here today, you are definitely amassing merits! When you feel remorseful as you read the Buddhism in Plain Terms, the speed of which your karma is eliminated is extremely fast.
Caller: When I read the things that Master Lu highlighted in the book are the mistakes that I have committed before, I truly see the error of my ways. Sometimes I will force myself to study earnestly so that what I read will go into my Eighth Consciousness and I tell myself I must change my bad temper. I know Master Lu, you are aware that I have a lot of shortcomings.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Yes. For example, you read the Buddhism In Plain Terms about the importance of finding one’s true nature, that is, your Buddha nature. You also read about how you will have to help yourself to solve the many problems in your life. That should get you thinking, “I feel so bad that I can’t seem to be able to control my own temper. I can’t even help myself, how can I help others? It is precisely such kind thoughts which are meritorious in nature that will help you eliminate negative karma at a speed you can never imagine!< About Spiritual Cultivation
