Q&A 35. Regarding two people reciting a Little House together

Q: Master Lu, can two people recite one Little House together?  For example, I recite the Great Compassion Mantra and the Heart Sutra, whereas my husband recites the Amitabha Pure Land Rebirth Mantra and the Qi Fo Mie Zui Zhen Yan. Is this appropriate?

A:

  • Two people can recite one Little House together. They can also recite any of the four types of sutras and mantras for the Little House together.
  • Before you begin reciting the Little House, you should each write your full name down in the field labelled “Offered by” on the left-hand side of the Little House.
  • As a result, both of you will accumulate merits and virtues
  • However, it would be best to perform the recitations separately.
