一輩子的榜樣My Role Model for Life
The first meal offering to my Root Guru Living Buddha Lian-Sheng was during the first week of February this year, with around 60 fellow Dharma brothers and sisters.
The second meal offering happened in mid-April with around 20 other Dharma brothers and sisters.
This time round, on 9 Dec 2014, there were only my disciple, my student and I.
It is a wonderful feeling to meet the Buddha. This is definitely not just a subjective thought, but one that stems completely from my heart and soul. Neither is it the play of seven emotions and six desires, but a manifestation of the direct nourishment my heart and soul received that day. It is only when you are truly on the spiritual path that, when you meet the Buddha, you will experience this. You will then completely and thoroughly understand what I mean.
If there is no concerted focus of the heart and mind, it will be very tough for this affinity to materialize.
In the offerings I present to my Grandmaster, one of them was a brocade box, containing tens of my manuscripts. I told my Grandmaster that after receiving His teachings, I had been keeping my vow to benefit the sentient beings.
When I kneel down to make my offering and looked up at the revered face of Buddha, His compassionate expression radiated love and concern from His eyes. He was like a loving father encouraging me, like telling His child to keep up my hard work and continue my efforts.
No matter what obstacle or ordeal that had came my way, no matter how superficial human relations around me had turned out to be, I remain devoted to my Root Guru and continue keeping my initial vow to Him.
It was such rarity and an immense fortune to be in such close proximity with my Root Guru over a meal. I am sincerely grateful to His great compassion.
The halo of empowerment from the Buddha is constantly on me. I shall bring forth this Light and share with all sentient beings whom I have affinity with.
