Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng-Yen Lu Book 214
The Sword of the Yogi
Preface: The Appearing of White Tara
In the past, when I was at my teacher, Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye’s place, he told me a true story.
Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye said that one day White Tara appeared to him and told him:
“You must quickly go to Taiwan, to find someone with the family name of Luo. In this present age, this Mr. Luo will be a rare and
precious acharya, and in the future he will attain accomplishment. This acharya’s bliss-body is none other than Amitabha Buddha.”
At the beginning, Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye did not take this seriously.
However, White Tara appeared to him repeatedly.
Hence my teacher brought his attendant Thubten Qi-gong with him to Taiwan to disseminate Buddhadharma, while looking for
someone with the last name of “Luo” at the same time.
He searched day after day.
But he could not find someone with the last name of “Luo.”
Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye was very upset that he could not find someone with the last name of “Luo.”
Not long after, I took refuge under Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye of my own accord. My teacher gave me the dharma name, “Thubten Qi-mo.”
One day, White Tara showed up again.
My teacher told White Tara:
“While in Taiwan, I could not find someone with the family name of ‘Luo.’”
White Tara replied:
“He is already by your side, and is none other than Sheng-Yen Lu. Go on and teach him the profound esoteric keys of the three inner secret dharma practices.”
My teacher said:
“His family name is Lu, not Luo?”
White Tara replied:
“In Taiwanese, the pronunciation of the family name Lu is Luo.”
“Lu” is pronounced as “Luo” in Taiwanese.
Suddenly, light dawned upon Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye.
As a result, I became his main disciple at his place, and received the pivotal keys of the inner secret practices all through his teachings, incomparable empowerments and continuous blessings.
At Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye’s place, I received:
Kurukulle Buddha Mother empowerment
The Highest Yoga Tantra empowerment
The great Kalachakra empowerment
Even after the parinirvana of Vajra Acharya Thubten Dargye, he still appeared to teach me uncommon dharma teachings.
I carry him above my crown in gratitude.
One day, White Tara appeared and spoke to me:
“Grand Master Lu, you have to write a book. You have the obligation to write such a book.”
From the emptiness above, White Tara tossed a book down to me.
The moment I flipped open the book, I was greatly appalled!
White Tara said:
“Write it! This is a warning to your holy disciples, who are in dangerous situations or have gone astray. This is a way to call them
back onto the right path!”
“This! This is too awkward!”
White Tara said:
“Doing this awkward task is also an act of kindness! This book is one that people need to read.”

The Sword of THE YOGI - Book #214
A MUST HAVE FOR ALL TRUE BUDDHA PRACTITIONERS
RARE, PRECIOUS PITHY TEACHINGS FROM WHITE TARA TO TRUE BUDDHA DISCIPLES ON HOW TO BE A TRUE CULTIVATOR!
"I asked White Tara for further advice and teachings. White Tara finally said: "Please read this book carefully, engrave it upon your heart, and contemplate it time and time again." "Is this book important?" "The most important!" White Tara answered.
Excerpt from The Sword of THE YOGI
As directed by White Tara, Book #214 - The Sword of THE YOGI is one of the most important books Grand Master Lu has written specifically for True Buddha Disciples. In a clear and concise manner, Grand Master Lu expounds the teachings from White Tara on how to achieve true success in cultivation and navigate through today’s world filled with endless afflictions and suffering!
White Tara is the White Dakini and also called Seven-eyed Buddha Mother. She emanated from a compassionate teardrop of Guanyin and is one of the 21 Taras. As White Tara is a Buddha Mother transformed from the teardrop of Guanyin, White Tara and Guanyin have the same origin and both compassionately save sentient beings. The essential meaning of the color white is eradication of disasters. It means the eradication of calamities and difficulties and the ability to annihilate the evil karmic hindrances of sentient beings. White Tara and Grand Master Lu have a deep and profound affinity. The Sword of the Yogi (Book 214) is entirely the teachings of White Tara. It is White Tara's teaching on Vajrayana precepts. Reading The Sword of the Yogi will keep you on the right path to attainment.
