THE STRONGER THE RESOLUTION THE GREATER THE POSITIVE RETURNS WILL BE. CULTIVATION IS ABOUT SINCERITY RATHER THAN FORMALISM
Caller: Master, each time when we offer large incense, how much help would it be in eliminating our karmic obstacles or transforming our destiny?
Master Jun Hong Lu: The question that you just asked is related to math, whereas my teachings are about Buddhist studies. They are entirely different. If one has a strong resolution, the outcome from Buddhism cultivation will be enormous and cannot be measured against the number of incense offered. A novice monk when performing recitation; will not make it without an intent. Cultivation evolves from our innate heart. Bodhisattva is not attached to the worldly materials and the wellbeing is not measured against how many incense one offers. By doing so, aren’t you treating Bodhisattva as a human?< About Spiritual Cultivation
