(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
TRANSFERRING MERITS IS THE FASTEST SOLUTION TO HELP SOMEONE WHO IS ENCOUNTERING PROBLEMS
Caller: The child of a fellow Buddhist friend is going to sit for a major exam. Every day the father recites Cundi Dharani (Zhun Ti Shen Zhou) 49 times and the Heart Sutra 21 times for his child. He also intends to transfer some of the merits he has accumulated through propagation of Buddhism to his child, and to seek Bodhisattva’s blessing to ensure his child passes the exam with flying colours. Master Lu, can the transfer of one’s merits help to achieve a desired outcome much faster?
Master Jun Hong Lu: This is the quickest method, even faster than performing recitations of Little Houses and scriptures. Let me cite a simple example: You have some savings at home. When you need to resolve a problem that has just arisen, is it faster to earn the money through work, or to tap directly into your savings at home?
Caller: It’s faster to take it directly out of your savings.< About Spiritual Cultivation
