Q&A 32. Performing recitations and bringing forth one’s resolve

< Buddhism Your Questions Answered (FAQ)    

Q: Master Lu, countless people from around the world are now downloading recordings of your radio programs and learning Buddhism from them. All the feedback that I have received from people around me has been positive. However, recently I heard that some individuals are reciting the Cundi Dharani to break up other people’s marriages, or to kick their parents out of the house and send them off to nursing homes.


  • Buddhism emphasizes a person’s resolve. Only when you bring forth a resolve with kindness will you receive blessings from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
  • Master Lu teaches the sutras and mantras of the Greatly Merciful and Greatly Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva.  Buddhism emphasizes the importance of being kind to others and helping sentient beings become spiritually awakened.
  • You must never perform recitations with the intention of placing a curse on others or wishing them ill. This would be unacceptable to Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and the Dharma Protectors.  If you are performing recitations with bad intentions in mind, you will receive punishment.
