(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
DREAMT OF UNDERWORLD HAVING A BOOK OF MERITS THAT RECORDS LITTLE HOUSES OFFERED TO KARMIC CREDITORS. GOOD QUALITY RECITATIONS WILL SCORE HIGH MARKS
Caller: Master Lu, a Buddhist practitioner dreamt that he descended to the underworld, and noticed that there is a Book of Merits that records the quality of Little Houses recited by us. In the dream, he was told that an ordinary person’s Little House will only warrant 50 marks whereas those recited by him scored 1,000 marks. Master Lu, why is he able to obtain such a high score?
Master Jun Hong Lu: It is very simple. Let me ask you, do you think a person could recite Little Houses that are constant in quality?
Caller: Not at all.
Master Jun Hong Lu: The underworld does have a booklet that records Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door’s Little Houses; otherwise it would be chaotic as many people are not reciting properly. I will pose you a question and you will understand. If Master Lu and yourself each recite the Great Compassion Mantra once, do you think there is any difference?
Caller: Oh dear! The difference will be like heaven and earth.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Alright, a difference of 1,000 times or 10,000 times?
Caller: He is also powerful as he can gain 1,000 marks.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Now you know, he recites very well.
Caller: Master Lu, he also dreamt that his Little House is as large as the size of a table.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Do you understand now?
Caller: Then Master Lu took that piece of Little House and showed it to many people. Master Lu said his Little House is very well dotted. Master Lu, is there any relation with the dotting on the Little House? Is there a major relation between dotting and recitation?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Dotting is merely an act after recitation. It is the quality of recitation, and not how well you dot, that determines the quality of the Little Houses.
Caller: Master Lu, I would like to share that he has heart disease and he vowed to offer 5,000 Little Houses when he commenced recitation. After he recited more than 500 pieces, his heart ailment recovered immensely. This is so efficacious.
Master Jun Hong Lu: Right, it is very efficacious, very good.
Caller: He is also very capable as he could recite seven Little Houses in one day.
Master Jun Hong Lu: I can tell you that this is due to his past life’s affinity with Buddhism, not just his present life.
Caller: You mean he has a solid foundation of Buddhism practice?
Master Jun Hong Lu: Definitely.
Caller: I understand now. It is very good.< About the Little House
