(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
REGARDLESS OF REPAYING OR CLAIMING KARMIC DEBTS, FILIAL PIETY TOWARDS PARENTS IS A WAY TO ACCUMULATE MERITS
Caller: Master, I noticed that people who are particularly filial would receive lots of blessings from Bodhisattvas.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Of course, and it comes with meritorious rewards as well. On the other hand, many people are lacked of merits nowadays because they are not being filial enough to their parents.
Caller: Actually filial piety is a way to accumulate merits for ourselves.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Exactly! Think about it, even if your parents are here to repay karmic debts owing to you, but if you do not claim them, you will in turn accrue merits for yourself. Conversely, if you owe them karmic debts and you repay them with your blessings, aren’t you repaying your debts? Regardless of the perspective, they are both favourable. As long as you are filial to your parents, be it repaying karmic debts or refusal in claiming karmic debts from them, you will be blessed!< About Spiritual Cultivation
