(Master Jun Hong Lu’s call-in radio program)
SUFFERING IS A WAY OF REPAYING OUR KARMIC DEBTS; “HAPPINESS COMES AFTER SUFFERING”
Caller: Master, occasionally when you were reading totem you commented that a certain person had gone through a lot of suffering, but was keeping mum about it. May I ask, for cases like this, is it because the person was indebted to the other party they remained silent while enduring the suffering?
Master Jun Hong Lu: It is generally so. Suffering in silence implies that they are bearing the suffering, and the bearing itself, is a form of repayment. Do you understand?
Caller: This kind of temperament is also useful for helping us to terminate a karmic issue we have towards someone or something. Is it right for me to say this, Master?
Master Jun Hong Lu: That’s right. You see, there are people who keep going through suffering after suffering. Do you have any idea what comes next?
Caller: Happiness comes after suffering.
Master Jun Hong Lu: That’s it. The person does not suffer any more, and so they begin to experience happiness in life, as they are no longer creating any new negative karma for themselves.
Caller: Thank you for answering my question Master.< Words of Wisdom
