A real event of earthly retribution
One threw the Buddha and broke his leg; One picked up the Buddha statue, and the business was booming. The karma in the world is true. If you do good deeds with good intentions, the gods will bless you
Zhong Shubao, a native of Tianbao Village, Shushan Town, Wuwei County, Anhui Province, was born on October 22, 1965, illiterate and engaged in fruit business in Nanjing. Ten years ago, Jushi Zhong invited a discarded and damaged Buddha to go home and worship it. Later, his career became more and more successful, and his karma was very representative.
At the instruction of the old monk Shaoyun of Baochan Temple in Anhui Province, the author interviewed Zhong Shubao at his home in Nanjing on Sunday, September 25, 2005.
Although things seem very ordinary, they mean thought-provoking and hope to arouse those of us who do not understand or believe in Buddhism, respect Buddhism, avoid evil and promote good, and feel good results.
Zhong Shubao didn't believe in Buddhism at first. After coming to Ning, he has been pushing a tricycle stall near Xinjiekou to do fruit business. One day ten years ago, due to the demolition of Nanjing Huowa Lane, an old man was seen throwing a Buddha statue into the courtyard wall beside the road. For some reason, Zhong Shubao went into the courtyard and picked up the discarded Buddha. He found that the leg and arm of the Buddha had been broken. So Zhong Shubao invited the Buddha back home, bought plaster and glue to repair the broken place, and bought gold water to paint the Buddha again. It doesn't cost much. It adds up to ten or twenty yuan.
Since then, Zhong Shubao found that his business was getting better and better, and he felt that things were going smoothly. The same is selling fruit. I always sell more and faster than others. Some other fruit vendors nearby have quit the business because of bad business.
Now Zhong Shubao's business volume is large. In 1995, he first bought an agricultural tricycle, and in 1998, he bought a 3.5-ton Yuejin truck. In 2003, he bought a van. In 2004, he bought a second-hand house (located in the center of the city) in Nanjing, 47 square meters, and cost more than 300000 yuan.
It is worth mentioning that after buying an agricultural tricycle, Zhong Shubao purposely drove back to his hometown to pull fertilizer for the villagers for free without even charging for gasoline. This kind of gratitude psychology is worth learning.
However, Zhong Shubao also told me that about two years after the Buddha was retrieved, an old lady found him one day and asked him if an old man dropped the Buddha last time. Did you pick it up? Zhong Shubao thought she was the one who came to ask for the Buddha statue. After asking, he found out that the old man who broke the Buddha statue was the neighbor of the old lady. After breaking the Buddha statue, the old man fell and broke his arm and leg (it happened that the Buddha statue also broke his arm and leg). He died not long ago. The old lady didn't believe in Buddhism. Now her family all believe in Buddhism and are very religious. This incident is the inducement.
An interesting thing happened to Zhong Shubao: In 1998, he bought a 30-ton cement boat, and his family lived on the boat. He hired an hour worker to help with some housework. They were busy outside in the daytime and returned to the boat at night. Zhong Shubao asked the Buddha he found to come back and offer it to the ship. He didn't know how to sleep for a while. At this time, he subconsciously told himself that there might be water leakage at the bottom of the ship. It turned out that the child was sleeping in the cabin, and his wife and himself were sleeping on it. At this time, he insisted that the child sleep on it, fearing that something would happen. When I sleep in the cabin, my waist will ache when I wake up. One day, when I woke up, I found that the bow of the ship sank, and the stern was high up. When I walked to the bow of the ship, I found that there was a big hole in the bottom of the bow of the ship. Fortunately, the cabin was separated from the cabin, so the ship didn't sink. After the event, it should be the Buddha and Bodhisattva who gave him a premonition that the bottom of the boat was damaged a week ago. He really felt that the Buddha he had invited back was very smart. His hourly worker also told him that when he was working on the ship, he would see the Buddha and shine.
Zhong Shubao has now become a Buddhist. I hope that in the future, he will be full of faith, listen to the Dharma, and achieve success in this life. I also hope that all living beings will end up doing evil, practice good deeds, accumulate wealth, and live happily!
Return: I would like to use this merit to solemnly report the four blessings of the Pure Land of Buddha and relieve the three hardships. If there is anyone who has heard of it, he will learn to send Bodhi Heart and do his best to report himself and live in the blissful country!
