Grand Master Lu
(Earth Store Bodhisattva)
By Rev. Hui Jun, Seattle.
Translated by TBSN Translation Committee.
His Holiness Living Buddha Lian-sheng's series of dissertations on the "Ksitigarbha Sutra" had concluded by June 1996. This was followed by an enthusiastic rush to sponsor the sculpturing of the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva's images. Thousand images were completed by end of December, awaiting to be distributed for popular worship.

During a Dharma-practise session held on the 21st of December(which coincidentally was one on the Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva Deity yoga), senior Zhao from Taiwan saw the Grand Master entering into the image of the Bodhisattva, that was positioned on the Altar. Subsequently, Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva also entered and merged with the Grand Master. These vision was repeated five times within ten seconds, and was witnessed by senior Zhao with his open eyes.

After the practise, senior Zhao obtained permission from the Deities
to disclose his vision to those who were present.

The Grand Master, having heard what senior Zhao had said, encouraged him to practise the Dharma diligently, as he had profound affinity with the Deities.

The Grand Master then told the audience about His initial vow to honour the Jade Pond Golden Mother (the Supreme Taoist Deity), Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (the Lord of Earth) and the Amitabha Buddha (King of the Buddhas) as His Personal Deities; to worship and constantly remembering Them for life. The Grand Master hoped that after He had entered into Nirvana, He could have three manifestation bodies, so that he could follow and assist these Deities.

Grand Master said, "When I first set forth to propagate the Dharma, I've
encountered many slandering. But even if threatened with forceful oppositions, I had remained unwavering in My conviction of the Truth....True Buddha disciples of today, having experienced wonderful miracles from the Grand Master, should also possess the same deep-rooted and immovable conviction towards the Dharma."

These beneficial words from His Holiness, were respectfully heeded by the audience who were now filled with Dharma bliss.
