【Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng-yen Lu Dharma Discourse - Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva Body Shrine Calamity Evasion Practice】
Grandmaster has stated that boundary protection is of utmost importance to Vajrayana practitioners!
Webcast of True Buddha School Global Online Group Cultivation of the Avalokiteshvara Body Shrine Calamity Evasion Practice will begin at 6:00 PM Saturday evening (Taiwan Time) on June 27, 2020!
Grandmaster discoursed as follows:
Boundary protection is of utmost importance to Vajrayana practitioners. Many people, when not cultivating, nothing happens to them. However, once they start to cultivate, they encounter disturbances that disrupt their entire family. These disturbances result from demonic hindrances. It’s possible for any practitioner to encounter hindrances caused by demons.
There are external demons and internal demons. Therefore, performing practices to protect from demons is a must. Even Shakyamuni Buddha, a holy sage, encountered obstacles created by both human and celestial beings.
It’s extremely important for every practitioner to know dharma practices that protect against demons. Many practitioners have lost their minds due to disturbances caused by the Mara. Earth demons inflict countless illnesses! Hindrances caused by human devils can throw practitioners off the path of cultivation! This type of phenomena is widespread. Due to the carelessness of practitioners, many are turned into mere snacks for demons!
Recently, while I was meditating, Thousand-armed Thousand-eyes Avalokitesvara transmitted the Avalokitesvara Body Shrine Calamity Evasion Practice to me. This practice is the greatest demon evasion dharma! I hope all practitioners will value demon avoidance practices, especially the Avalokitesvara Body Shrine Calamity Evasion Practice.
One should practice this dharma semimonthly to annihilate calamities. It can destroy all evil spells and black magic. This is a body offering practice. In order to eradicate all kinds of calamities, one’s visualization must be clear and detailed. Illnesses, accidents, demonic interference, catastrophes caused by humans or nature, and all disasters and misfortune can be extinguished by receiving the protection and blessing of the compassionate Avalokitesvara.
This dharma originated while I was performing Great Compassion Repentance. I suddenly entered into deep meditation. Thousand-armed Thousand-eyed Avalokitesvara manifested and bestowed the oral transmission to me. Avalokitesvara explained the practice three times. Finally, I was able to remember it! After I emerged from meditation, I explained the practice to disciples.
The lineage transmission of this practice is: Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva to Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng-yen Lu to True Buddha School disciples. This uncommon practice was transmitted to me directly from Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva. It is therefore found only in the True Buddha School!
Note: The Avalokitesvara Body Shrine Calamity Evasion Practice is an uncommon practice of the True Buddha School. One must receive empowerment to perform this practice.
