The benefits of releasing life, it is amazing and incredible .......
(Note: The author of this article, Sifu Liu Xu, has been advocating the release of sentient beings on the Internet for several years and has motivated tens of thousands of people to release their sentient beings, which is amazing! He has set an example for our fellow practitioners!)
The story is about a young couple who came to Guangzhou from the countryside to start their own business. The story is about a couple who come from the countryside to Guangzhou. For example, they cannot buy train tickets for New Year's Eve, they are robbed by a speeding car gang, and there are stories of kind-hearted neighbours. When I read these stories of miserable people, I thought, "Why don't they let go of their lives if they want to start a business." I have also seen too many people who are dying, and they suffer in countless ways, from festering backs; from excruciating pain; from wishing they were dying; from being tortured by their families and hospitals; from being embalmed before they die; from having their hearts pressed even after they die; from having their hearts pressed even after they die; from having your family's money in billions, but still not dying well. What are we all doing? Isn't it good to let go of life to give ourselves a sense of fulfilment when we are alive.
So far I have only confirmed that releasing life and chanting can make one live a life of freedom! And to die well! Letting go of life is indeed the fastest good deed in terms of present rewards, and because the fruit is so great, the present rewards must be quick too. We once released the life of a 92 year old woman who had been blessed with great goodness in her previous life, and although her family was poor, we released more than $6,000 to her. Watching this made me think of the same thing when my girlfriend and I came to Nanjing in 2003. There are too many people in the world who cherish their blessings and do not cultivate them. We had over 600 a month in 2003 and we had to let go of over 300, and now we have a house, children, a Master's care and a dojo. We never have too much money, nor do we lack it, especially not as much as we used to be afraid of lacking it. Sometimes when we make hundreds of thousands of dollars all at once, we still feel the need to provide for it immediately, otherwise it is very empty and we don't know how else to spend it apart from food and shelter.
My family's nanny, to whom I give 600 a month, gives 20 yuan a month for her release, but that's not bad. How many people understand that releasing life should be "big release" and "long release"? The purpose of a big release is to "repay the killing karma of a hundred lives", while the purpose of a long-term release is to cultivate compassion. "The only method of releasing life is to release it widely and for a long time. ------- This is the secret of releasing life that was first stated by Master Liangyi. How much killing can you dissolve by a few occasional drops of water?
I used to slander Tantric Buddhism, but then I saw too many Tantric masters who had spent their lives releasing life, and spent their lives advising people to release life, which gave me immense admiration and thus changed my slander into praise. I have also been reading articles by tantric masters on the subject of releasing life and have benefited greatly from them. Charmey Rinpoche spent his whole life releasing and advising people to release their lives, and at the end of his life he was reborn in the Western bliss world. The number of loaches released each year at the Five Minds Buddhist College is in the tens of tons, which is astonishing and has never been heard of in the past or present. Sodarji Khenpo's release text has persuaded countless people across the country to release their lives. The Tantric masters released 150,000 yuan a day in Guangzhou one time and 100 million lives a day in Dongguan another time, a very big gesture. This has caused some small-minded and compassionless people to slander them.
I once advised a gambler to release a small number of lives, but the gambler still went gambling after releasing a small number of lives many times, but it was obvious that the god of wealth was taking care of him, and he felt that his hand was in good hands and won several games in a row. This reminds me of a story ------ When a group of robbers were being chased after a robbery, they were about to be caught up by hordes of officers and soldiers. The other robbers didn't even listen and continued to run. One robber told him, "The Bodhisattva of the Goddess of Mercy will not bless us robbers". He had no other choice and could not run, so he just stood there and really chanted the Goddess of Mercy. The officials chased him until all the robbers were brought back, but they spared him. The other robbers said, "Why didn't they arrest that robber? The officer said, "That is the crippled Goddess of Mercy, who would dare to arrest him?
The only thing I have achieved is that I have managed to warm up my heart, which was cold, and I know that if I don't do it again, hell will be waiting for me. I know to give my sister some Hong Kong dollars regularly, I know to call my parents every day to let them hear their children laugh and cry, I know to be grateful to my wife and love her; I can see the eyes of animals now. I know to fear the emptiness of having too much money on me and not knowing how to use it.
That day, I once released the life of a person who had passed away, and after I had done so, I felt that I was letting off ten thousand golden rays of light, and that everything came true afterwards. One day I read the words of Venerable Jingkong, "If you earn enough money to last, earn a year's worth of money and then go and chant for three years. You don't have to be afraid of not having a job when you come out, because the Buddha's power is so incredible that after three years of chanting, you can still chant for seven years. I was very happy to hear this, and I thought several times that I would make some money to go and chant, and then when the stock market had just entered the initial bull market, and there was no mega opportunity, I already had a little bit of money, and a master invited me to his dojo to serve the sentient beings, and when I had no money, I could provide food and accommodation for me, and after I went, the stock appeared to rise greatly, and I made a lot of money, and I could live for a long time, and also often provide for the dojo.
In everything I do, when I have a thought, my mind must immediately think of something. It's definitely not something that takes a while to happen after I think about it, but it's something that comes to me as soon as I think about it, without any delay. Of course there are times when I think bad thoughts, but they are never fulfilled right away because the Buddha only enriches good thoughts, not evil ones.
Today, I did not release any life, so I searched and printed the article on the consequences of killing life at home, and typed up two copies, one for the consequences of killing fish and one for the consequences of killing pigs and chickens. This is something to take a few copies with you when you release your life in future, and give them to fish sellers and chicken and duck sellers. We have very many fish and chicken killings in this city, and if a city kills a lot of a certain type of animal, or is even famous for producing a certain type of animal, then please don't eat the meat of such animals, and beware of falling into this terrible common karma. When the common karma is ripe, you will definitely have to pay it back, and most of the people in the whole city will pay it back, and you will definitely not be able to escape by then. Unless you have already become a Buddha, and although you pay your debt, you do not suffer, and you can perform it for all sentient beings to become enlightened. This is the warning given to us by the story of the destruction of the Sakya clan by the King of Liuli, when the common karma is ripe and all the Sakyas are destroyed, even the Buddha who has already become a Buddha and played the fish head three times back then had a headache for three days.
When releasing sparrows, I also like to have a bottle of vajra sand with me and sprinkle one or two grains on dead sparrows and other animals. If you release a thousand sparrows, maybe seven or eight will die if it is better, dig a small hole to make a temporary grave, sprinkle a little vajra sand, recite the six vajra mantras or the Buddha's name seven times, and bury the sparrows. Vajra sand is very effective in helping people to pass on to the next life, and there are often cases of people being helped to do so by simply sprinkling vajra sand on the top of their heads and necks.
When releasing animals, you can ask the stall owner to give you a number of animals, but if he refuses to do so, do not worry; if you encounter some unfavourable things when releasing animals, such as the stall owner refuses to sell them to you and just goes to kill them, or the price is not agreed, or the stall owner deliberately raises the price, do not worry, release the animals for joy, for compassion, and fear worry to interfere.
The release of life should be done after a period of time, there is a reduction in greed and anger, such as less angry, softer and softer heart; and the blessings should be significantly increased, such as the heart wants to achieve, everything is smooth; wisdom increases, determination increases, will not hear others say anything feel justified (soft ears), and look at things more can see the root, business is more sober analysis of the form, good at taking advantage of the situation The most important thing is to wait for opportunities. For example, in order to build an urban garden, Li Ka-shing spent more than 20 years, acquiring and merging a number of companies real estate, before completing his wish. This is wisdom, determination and patience. If we look at the entrepreneurs around us, we can see the difference in wisdom between those who are pulled to do Amway today and those who are pulled to speculate in stocks tomorrow.
What are the acts of abstaining from killing and releasing
1. Do not kill a living being with your own hands.
2. Do not abet others to kill.
3. Do not help others to kill.
4. Abstain from eating meat.
5. Do not engage in trades related to killing.
6、Whenever there is worship, regardless of what is being worshipped, use vegetarian dishes, flowers and fruit, not animal gifts.
7. If you see someone killing a human being, you should discourage them or buy the animal to be slaughtered with money and release it. If this does not work, or if the person does not sell the animal, then you should have compassion for the slaughtered animal, and even better if you can recite the Buddha's name or mantra for it.
8. Do not abuse the animal.
9、Other actions that are contrary to killing.
10. Abstain from killing and releasing animals yourself, and advise others to do the same.
