Deepest gratitude to the Greatly Merciful and Greatly Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva
Deepest gratitude to all Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and the Heavenly Dharma Protectors
Deepest gratitude to Master Jun Hong Lu
Thank you all fellow Buddhist friends
Today I would like to share with you about how Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door helped to quell my 3,6, 9 karmic passes successfully.
I started cultivating under Master Jun Hong Lu since 2015. To-date, it has been 3 years. The path of my cultivation has been smooth sailing and the responsive Guan Yin Bodhisattva has been blessing me in everything I do. However, towards the end of 2017 when I was nearing the 3, 6, 9 karmic passes, I met with a series of accidents due to fruition of my karmic obstacles.
On 5th December 2017, I collided into a car from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs while driving. The collision caused damages to the front of my car without any casualty. I knew then that it was due to the blessing from Guan Yin Bodhisattva. Deepest gratitude to Guan Yin Bodhisattva! But, that was not the end of my catastrophe.
In less than two weeks after the car accident, on 17th December, two days after I collected my car from the workshop, I heard a loud scream when I was about to make a turn at a cross junction. Thereafter, my body was covered with glasses from my shattered windscreen, and a motorcycle ramped right into the side of my door; at that instance, I saw a lady being flung from the left to the right side of my car. I was in deep shock by what I saw. I was praying to Guan Yin Bodhisattva on one hand and got out to check my car on the other. I saw a man whose face was covered with blood and his eyes were protruding. He was laying motionless on the ground. The wounded lady was crawling over to check on the condition of the man. I was in such a state of fright that my limbs were weaken and I could not even turn on my mobile phone.
After the police and medics arrived, with an empty mind, I recorded my statement and went home to wait for further news. I do not know how the police will judge the accident, but the Traffic Law of Singapore tend to be biased towards the pedestrian. If found guilty, I will be faced with huge amount indemnity and even criminal liabilities. When I reached home, I knelt before Guan Yin Bodhisattva and cried. I seek Guan Yin Bodhisattva for forgiveness. I vowed to recite Little Houses, perform recitations to quell the karmic knots, perform life liberation and to utilize the merits amassed from one of the public talk to help me overcome the situation. I hope Guan Yin Bodhisattva will forgive me.
Ever since after the accident, I was unable to sleep well. The minute I closed my eyes, images of the casualty would appear. I was unable to sleep and eat and live in fear every single day. Whenever the phone rang, I would be afraid that there would be bad news from the police or hospital. Eventually, I sank into a state of depression. During those days, the mental stress that I underwent was indescribable. I did not want to disclose the incident to people around me. Every day, I would listen to Master Lu’s Buddhism in Plain Terms. I guess I would have collapsed if not for the blessing and energy I received from the Buddhism in Plain Terms.
One day, I saw a phrase in the Buddhism in Plain Terms which states that Buddha would be able to sense those with sincerity. As long as a person repent his wrongdoings sincerely, Buddha would definitely be able to sense it. When the phrase caught my eyes, Master Lu’s dharma body appeared in my mind instantaneously and he was reprimanding me sternly, “The fruition of such retribution is the result of the seed you sowed from past or present life. Why didn’t you repent to Guan Yin Bodhisattva sincerely?”
I burst into tears at that instance and quickly knelt before Guan Yin Bodhisattva to make a vow to recite the Eighty-eight Buddha Great Repentance, to repent my wrongdoings from previous life which caused the present retribution. It was only then that I realized why I was still feeling uneasy despite having recited so many scriptures and offered so many Little Houses; it was because I was only concern about making vows, perform recitation and life liberation all these while and failed to acknowledge and repent my wrongdoings to Guan Yin Bodhisattva. Deepest gratitude to Master Lu for coming to my rescue once again.
On January, I received a reply from the police station. They said due to the fact that there wasn’t any monitoring camera at the scene and insufficient evidence from witness, thus, they were unable to determine who was at fault. As such, they would not be filing any lawsuit against me, but would refer the case to court for further investigation. They told me to be prepared for the worst because judges in Singapore tend to incline towards the motorcyclist, especially when he sustained such a serious injury; the chances of me winning the court case only stand at around 20 – 30%. Once again, I was devastated and cried for the cause I had created in previous life which led to such a car accident.
In February, I participated in the public talk held at Sydney. Master Lu seemed to know the pain I was suffering within and gave me his blessing personally. The compassion that Master Lu had shown me made me feel extremely regretful. I vowed to cultivate diligently and will not let Master Lu down. I repented earnestly. Finally, in April, I received a letter from the police stating that they were unable to indict me for the accident. Therefore, both the police and court would not be filing any law suite against me. The final verdict was for both parties to bear their own insurance and maintenance fees. Deepest gratitude for the compassion that Guan Yin Bodhisattva had shown me. Deepest gratitude to Master Lu for not giving up on me and helping me to overcome the situation.
While waiting for the verdict over the 6-months period, I decided to apply for a taxi license in order to earn money to support my family. However, applicants for taxi license in Singapore will be subjected to screening of historical driving records by the Land Transport Authority of Singapore. If there was serious traffic offence, your application will be rejected. I was very worried that the accident would leave criminal record in my name and would affect my application. Getting the license means a lot to me as I have to provide for my young children. At that moment, I thought of Guan Yin Bodhisattva. I made a vow to release 500 fishes, which was targeted at helping me to obtain the taxi license. Every time, I will drive to the market at Malaysia to purchase fishes that were to be killed and released them into the river nearby. I also vowed to offer a few batches of 21 Little Houses.
Every day, I will recite the Cundi Dharani 108 times and pray to Guan Yin Bodhisattva for blessing in helping me to obtain the taxi license. It is not an easy task to obtain taxi license in Singapore, but I managed to obtain both the taxi license and the shared rental car license. Through practicing the triple gem, I was able to obtain both licenses. Without the blessings from Guan Yin Bodhisattva, after the major road accident and during the waiting period, I do not think it would be possible for me to obtain the shared car license without any hindrance. Deepest gratitude to Guan Yin Bodhisattva.
After the car accident, I was anxious to sell the car off. Through the act of performing recitation, making vows and life liberation, I was able to find a buyer quickly. In fact, the buyer offered a price which was $1,000 above my base price. The additional sum of money was just enough for me to pay for the excess that I was liable to pay to the insurance company. Deepest gratitude to Guan Yin Bodhisattva. From the accident, I learnt the importance of reading the Buddhism in Plain terms and merits accumulated from the public talks could help us to ward off our calamity. I am able to stand before you is due to the opportunity that Guan Yin Bodhisattva has given me.
The above is my sharing for today.
Deepest gratitude to the Greatly Merciful and Greatly Compassionate Guan Yin Bodhisattva for helping me to trivialize the effect of a potential major problem.
Deepest gratitude to Master Lu. Deepest gratitude to Everyone.
