(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
THE PLACE TO OFFER LITTLE HOUSE SHOULD BE AT THE SIDE AND NOT DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF THE BUDDHIST ALTAR, AS THE LATTER IS DISRESPECTFUL TO BODHISATTVA
Caller: Today, a Buddhist friend from the practise group said that, “We should offer Little House at the side of the Buddhist altar, not right in front of it, as the latter is disrespectful to Bodhisattva and the Little House offered will be of no effect.” Is that true, Master Lu?
Master Jun Hong Lu: As no blame can be attached to the unconscious wrong doer, for Little House that had been offered, it should still be of effect. However, it is indeed disrespectful to Bodhisattva if it is done right in front of the Buddhist altar. Now, you must not interpret my words out of context. I hereby say this today, the 5th of August, please remember, “The place to offer Little House should be at the side of a Buddhist altar. Even if the place is in front of the Buddhist altar, it has to be at the side and not in the middle. Because this is the area where we perform prostrations, where our souls are being purified and where we interact with Bodhisattva. This said, why would you want to offer Little House for the foreign spirits at this area?
Caller: I understand now. Thank you Master.< About the Little House
