Question: You have probably heard of ‘Xin Lin Fa Men’ (观音心灵法门) by ‘Guanyin Citta Dharma Door’ Master Lu Jun Hong (卢军宏 or 卢台长). In his practice, after reciting Dabeizhou (Great Compassion Mantra) for karmic creditors, we are taught to burn ‘little house’ papers. Is it really necessary to do so? (This question is not linked to the picture.)

Answer: Lu’s group is a cult riding upon so-called ‘Buddhism’. Please do not follow his teachings. It is not true Buddhism as he teaches corrupted teachings. For instance, the practice of burning was never taught by the Buddha or any orthodox Buddhist teacher in history. It is an ecologically harmful and pointless new superstition. Many orthodox Buddhist organisations worldwide have spoken collectively against him. You must read these extremely important articles carefully, so as to not make the mistake of following such cults:

Are There Mediums & Manifestations Of Buddhas & Bodhisattvas Around?
http://thedailyenlightenment.com/2014/02/are-there-mediums-manifestations-of-buddhas-bodhisattvas-around

Question: Thank goodness I asked, for I almost joined as I was amazed by his ‘supernatural’ power. How does he have the power to heal people and know about their past and present lives?

Answer: His so-called powers are not real at all. He does not know present lives. He makes wide and safe guesses, and if you observe carefully, he gets it wrong at times, but insists he is right. He does not know past lives. He speculates again and the foolish believe him – when his claims cannot be proved. He does not heal as he simply asks people to chant what Buddhists already should know, which of course naturally has healing effects when done properly.

However, he adds in nonsensical anti-Dharma teachings such as insisting that some general sutras should not be chanted at certain times, and that merits should not be dedicated. These and more confuse and trick people, distracting them from true Buddhism, while he gains fame and wealth by pretending to be special and offering special advice. He also markets himself to be a manifestation of Guanyin Bodhisattva, which all Buddhas taught to be equivalent to what Mara (the evil one) would support, as you can see in this article:

Do also read the comments at http://thedailyenlightenment.com/2014/02/are-there-mediums-manifestations-of-buddhas-bodhisattvas-around to see analyses of his tricks (and collective statements denouncing his teachings). The crucial information is all there.

Question: I have read the articles and comments after them, which offer very logical explanations. Thank you for enlightening me. I was almost fooled by his cult.

Answer: Do spread the word – share this article with family and friends who might be tricked too!

    Yes, be careful of fake masters and cult teachers. Learn and confirm more about them and Buddhism before you join any organisations or persons who performs magic, healing and who claim enlightenment as Buddhism.

  2. Merrlyn March 18, 2015

    Yes, sometimes when we are unsure we can be fooled into following a cult or a false tenet.

    Having said that, I also believe that by using our intuition and doubts to clear the air is very necessary. As is ASKING QUESTIONS of the Authorities. However, if by asking questions you are insulting them, then they truly are not someone you want to follow; or if their answers are gobbley gook.

    Buddhism has always encouraged questioning of its tenets so that you are SURE of the path you wish to follow. Anyone who dissuades questions or meaningful answers is a snake charmer, not a master.

    Every races and dialect translate Buddhism differently. How conscious are you about Buddhism? :face:

  4. Any interpretation away from the core teachings renders it no longer Buddhism. The above are well recognised cults.

    Dear Bro’s n Sis in the Dhamma , With due respect and of no offences intended ; I think u all should not misjudge or prejudge Master Lu as he has actually helps alot of those unfortunate and helpless people and change alot of perceptions of those who does not believe in karma. Many have now turn into a good devotees .He also does not seek material gains and everythings are free not like some cult asking money for every service etc. Please understand his good deeds and gives him ur blessing.

    There is no misjudgement. All the comments above show how Lu is devious, abusing Buddhist teachings in the guise of helping people. Exactly because his guesses on past karma are either unprovable or proven inaccurate, he actually sows seeds of disbelief in karma too. There are some devotees who are now in mental institutions. Even if he does not seek wealth, his events require money of devotees to set up and their efforts to publicise. Not all cult masters want money. Some want fame, as part of the five desires. Please understand this and do not give him your support.

    Re: Lu helped many by curing their serious illnesses without charging any fee.

    Reply: There is no solid medically proven case of him having helped to cure anyone DIRECTLY. Some cult leaders are out for fame, not for money, because they are already rich enough. Also, his events involve much expenses and he prints many books. All these require money.

    Re: Lu told people to be kind. He is a serious vegetarian and asks his students to be too.

    Reply: This is nothing special. All good Buddhist teachers speak of the above. Even some non-Buddhist teachers teach so. E.g. There are vegan Buddhist teachers who advocate veganism, which causes even MUCH less harm to sentient beings than merely being vegetarian – as animal by-products such as dairy milk, cheese, cream, eggs, honey, leather, gelatine, silk… require exploitation and eventual killing of countless sentient beings.

    Re: Lu told people not to be lustful. From the net, sometimes we find scandalous cases related to fake monastics.

    Reply: This is nothing special. All good Buddhist teachers teach their students not to be lustful. All the cases above, since are related to fake monastics, do not involve proper good Buddhists, monastic or lay.

    Re: There are people who claim their serious illnesses were cured by following Lu’s instructions. Eg. In this video: ___ [link removed to prevent misleading readers].

    Reply: Here is a detailed analysis of the video –

    [1] The speech was read from a pre-prepared script. Person (in video) has been going around saying the similar, and might be planted to attract more devotees. There is no medical proof shown of his health before and after the claimed sickness, and none of Lu’s actual help.

    [2] Anyone who practices proper Buddhist practices sincerely (such as Nianfo, veganism and animal liberation, followed by dedication of merits to all beings) might be able to be cured of serious illnesses if conditions allow. (But death is eventual for all.) This healing potential has always been there without Lu’s warped teachings. If a person happened to practise the right parts within what he teaches, there will be positive effects. However, Lu’s warped teachings have wrong parts that can have severe negative effects, as below. As most cannot tell which teachings are warped, Lu’s teachings should be avoided entirely. A glass of otherwise pure water with a drop of poison should be thrown away immediately, because the poison will eventually be swallowed.

    [3] Person decided to go vegetarian for life. This of course creates immense merits that can dilute negative karma that condition illnesses. As above, vegetarianism or even better, veganism, is advocated by all good Buddhist teachers. It is not a special teaching of Lu. Meat-eating is also a common cause of cancer which the Person claimed to had. Removal of this cause of course leads easier to recovery.

    [4] Person decided to practise animal liberation, as advised by his friends; not Lu. This of course creates immense merits that can dilute negative karma that condition illnesses. Proper animal liberation is advocated by all good Buddhist teachers. It is not a special teaching of Lu.

    [5] It is spiritually dangerous to, as hinted in the video, to keep pining for and expecting healing from any practice – because it is the first Noble Truth taught by the Buddha that death is inevitable for the unenlightened. As Great Master Yinguang, the 13th Patriarch of the Pure Land Tradition taught, if there is clinging to healing, even on the deathbed, such attachment will bind one to the cycle of rebirth, instead of being able to reach Pure Land, much less attain healing or liberation: http://purelanders.com/2015/12/30/guidance-before-support-chanting-%E5%8A%A9%E5%BF%B5%E5%89%8D%E5%BC%80%E7%A4%BA-pure-land-passport-section-2 Healing is indeed possible but it should never be be clung to in an obsessive manner. Lu promotes his warped teachings centred on healing only, claiming success for ‘successful’ cases and lack of diligence on the part of devotees for all unsuccessful cases. Anyone can make such claims.

    [6] Lu’s claim of being able to tell the Person had 3-6 months left to live cannot be proven accurate at all. It is way too wide a range too, hardly a proper prediction. Anyone can claim to be able to tell a seriously ill person to have a few months left to live if he or she does not do enough of this or that. As there is blind faith in him, of course, his claim is believed blindly. And of course, the Person did not die in 6 months at all (since the prediction was never accurate in the first place), even living to tell the tale of survival.

    [7] Lu’s claim that the Person had lots of killing in his previous life, which led to having serious illness is common sense, as the most common cause of serious illnesses according to the Buddha’s teachings of karma is killing. It is not a special teaching of Lu.

    [8] Lu’s claim that the Person killed a monkey, whose spirit is on his shoulder and able to kill him at any time cannot be proven at all. One might as well say to a serious sick person that he killed a cow in his previous life and his spirit is living in his cancer tumour. Of course, this too cannot be proven. It is an arbitrary claim.

    [9] Lu’s teachings of the need to burn ‘little houses’ after chanting specific chants before specific times, without dedication of merits to anyone else is totally unfounded in the Buddha’s teachings. (Burning of much paper also creates negative karma from contributing to deforestation and pollution of the whole world.) All the proper Buddhist chants he advocated can actually be chanted at any time, and merits should be dedicated to all beings after as it is an essential Buddhist practice to benefit all, without need to meet arbitrary high quotas set randomly by him. His methods are warped attempts to advocate some special teachings, so that he can appear special, to have unique abilities and teachings, when they are warped instead. More on this is below.

    [10] Person claimed to chant for one ‘little house’ after another, for fulfilling one wish after another. This is dangerous, as it can feed growth of greed for all kinds of worldly gains, including merely healing for health, while forgetting we will all die. This is how the spiritual goal of going towards Pure Land or for direct liberation is lost, thus trapping devotees in the rounds of rebirth.

    [11] Person claimed that miracle happened which reduced swelling of legs and stomach, but this was after the doctor gave medication for it, also as claimed by himself. It is thus no clear miracle.

    [12] Person said he will continue to spread hope to others through Lu’s teachings, saying Guanyin Bodhisattva will definitely save through them. Again, this is dangerous, as death is inevitable, as the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas remind many times in the sutras. Lu’s warped teachings falsely ride upon Guanyin Bodhisattva’s popularity, misrepresenting them. Before enlightenment is realised, true and total physical and mental healing occurs when Pure Land is reached. Lu is also receptive to the claim that he is a manifestation of Guanyin Bodhisattva, when Sakyamuni Buddha clearly taught that those who claim to be the enlightened in our era are on the side of Mara (the most evil demon in our world system): http://thedailyenlightenment.com/2015/01/the-buddhas-admonition-against-making-false-spiritual-claims

    [13] Person claimed Lu’s three main teachings are to ‘make wishes, practise animal liberation and chant sutras’. Note that many other important aspects of pure Buddhist teachings are missing, such as learning the Dharma properly, dedication of merits and much more.

    [14] Person claimed Lu’s teachings to be a new ‘Dharma door’ (Buddhist practice method). It is not so, as his teachings ride upon and warp proper teachings, having become a new cult distorting Buddhism instead, that confuses the masses. Person claimed Lu is a living Bodhisattva. He is not so, as he is more of a living Mara (or his equivalent), who have driven not a few people to mental breakdown, as below.

    [15] Behind every deluded devotee such as the Person in the video, there are MANY others who have NOT created publicity videos, of how they have become confused and severely disturbed through Lu’s teachings, to a mentally dangerous stage. There are those chanting as instructed… without eating and rest, leading to poor mental and physical health, that affects work and family relationships. Some have even become hospitalised in mental institutes in Singapore. Some might already have mental ailments, that are not resolved by Lu, while some might have gone ‘crazy’ as Lu advocates NOT dedicating merits despite much chanting. If the affected really have supernatural problems, it is possible that unseen beings are hovering around hoping to receive merits but never get any, thus aggravating the problem that might be solved by dedicating merits. This is like waving spiritual ‘currency’ (merits) at the poor but not offering any. The poor might get angry and further disturb the ‘rich’. The ‘rich’ being disturbed only chants more for protection, but when stopping, gets further disturbed by the poor. This is how things can spin out of control. Even with lots of chanting, it does not lead to long term solutions; only leading to long term problems. Also, the chanters might be driven paranoid by Lu who suggests they MUST chant according to his requirements or else will stay troubled. Some even suggest his ‘little houses’ have dangerous occult properties that create disturbances. Again, note that use of them is not found in the Buddha’s teachings.

    [16] The Singapore Buddhist Federation has come up with a warning for all on Lu’s teachings being unqualified to be considered Buddhism: http://tinyurl.com/sbfnotice1 Many of Malaysia’s Buddhist organisations have also banded together to denounce Lu’s teachings: http://tinyurl.com/ybamnotice1 Even China’s Buddhists have spoken up: http://tinyurl.com/saranotice1 If there are doubts on the above, these organisations should be consulted.

    [17] Please read all the comprehensive information in the links in the main article above and here before commenting further. All comments promoting Lu’s teachings, clearly without reading all of the above will not be permitted here, lest there is confusion of readers. May all beings awaken to the Buddha’s true teachings.

    为何要远离卢军宏(卢台长)的邪说

    问:师兄总说某台长是外道,能说说到底某台长(心灵法门)怎麽个外道法吗?

    答:准确说,某台长是附佛外道。先来简单解释一下外道和附佛外道是什麽意思吧。

    外道 – 佛教把佛陀所说的教法,称为内道。佛教也称为内教。意思是说,究竟的真理在我们的自性中,返迷成觉、离妄即真,心外求法都是不究竟的。所以佛教把心外求法的种种宗教统称为外道。这个“外”,并不是贬低或轻侮他宗他教,而是在追求真理趣向解脱的修持方法、过程和目的上作了根本的区别罢了。在佛陀示现成道讲法涅槃的过程中,不光是佛陀本身,佛陀的很多弟子都曾修行外道法,最後体知佛法是最究竟圆满的真理,而皈依佛陀,趣向真正的解脱大道。

    附佛外道 -《摩诃止观》云“邪人不同又为叁:一佛法外外道,二附佛法外道,叁学佛法成外道。”意思是外道可分为叁大类:一是“佛法外外道”,和我们常说的“外道”同义,即泛指佛教以外的各种教法学派;二是“附佛法外道”,即指依附于佛法,借助或利用佛教的影响力传布非佛法的内容,以求取名闻利养、自创教派、膨胀野心、扩张眷属等;叁是“学佛法成外道”,即佛教弟子见地不正,表面上信佛学佛,其实心离佛法,行离佛教,难得解脱的实益。这後两种也称为“内外道”,也就是“附佛外道”。特别是第二种,因为有佛教的外壳包装,挪用、肢截、拼凑了一些佛教的教义,再用自己的知见去混杂扭曲,似是而非,对未学佛人、初学佛人、知见不正的学佛人非常有蛊惑性,对正信佛教的弘传、对衆生法身慧命的伤害也就极其严重。

    至于为何说某台长是附佛外道,稍举几个例子吧。比如:

    1、台长说“念大悲咒会把夫妻一方推开”。而大悲咒出自于《千手千眼观世音菩萨广大圆满无碍大悲心陀罗尼经》。在此经中,观世音菩萨对佛陀说:“我有大悲心陀罗尼咒今当欲说。为诸衆生得安乐故。除一切病故。得寿命故得富饶故。灭除一切恶业重罪故。离障难故。增长一切白法诸功德故。成就一切诸善根故。远离一切诸怖畏故。速能满足一切诸希求故。惟愿世尊慈哀听许。”由此当知,大悲咒是观世音菩萨慈悲心的化现,若“念大悲咒会把对方推开”,岂不是与观世音菩萨的慈悲本愿相违背呢?

    2、台长说“晚上不能念心经,会招所谓‘要经者’”。佛经是佛之法身,光明赫赫。诵经可以让衆生开智慧、增福德、了生死、脱轮回苦海的,是度己化他的大善行。特别是般若部的经典,比如《心经》,充满了空性的智慧,是消除恐怖掛碍、放下颠倒执着、舍弃贪欲、破除无明的利器,何来“禁忌”?再说了,佛陀如果说某部经不能晚上读,那应该开篇就说,善男子善女人,这部经你们晚上不要读哦。佛没有这样说。所以,如果学佛,应该是依法不依人的,要信佛的圣言量和威神力,不要信凡夫颠倒说,不要信鬼说。

    3、台长还说“晚上不能念往生咒”。往生咒全称“拔一切业障根本得生净土陀罗尼”,此咒出自《拔一切业障根本得生净土陀罗尼经》。焚香跪拜佛像,合掌念诵此咒,日夜各二十一遍,能灭五逆、十恶、谤法等重罪。诚心念此咒,阿弥陀佛常在头上保佑,怨家不能伤害,可享安乐之福。佛说的是日夜可诵,何来晚上不可念之怪谈?

    4、台长说“一般人年轻时不能念佛说阿弥陀经,只有七十岁以上的老人才能念。提前念了可能会提前被菩萨接到东方神仙世界去”。而实际上,佛说阿弥陀经,是佛无问自说的无上解脱之法。净土法门是圆顿法门,念佛求生西方极乐世界,横超叁界速出轮回,普利九法界一切衆生,十方诸佛都出广长舌相来印證释迦牟尼佛所言真实不虚。南无阿弥陀佛名号具足阿弥陀佛因地上的愿力和果地上的功德,念佛人,阿弥陀佛常住其顶,观世音菩萨等25位菩萨都随身隐护。阿弥陀佛发过愿,只要衆生发愿求生西方极乐世界,至心念佛十声乃至一声,都可往生西方极乐世界。念佛功德极大,现世安乐吉祥、福慧增上,临终自在安祥往生极乐。人生无常,修行就在当下,这麽殊胜的法门竟然让人活到七十岁以上再念,谁能保證自己能安安稳稳,无病无灾活到七十岁?一息不来,即是後世,而末法衆生起心动念都在造堕落恶趣的业因,不求生西方,极大的可能就是再堕恶道受苦!人身难得,佛法难闻,如今更是好不容易听闻到了这个殊胜的法门,却受到这种误导和阻碍,这种说法简直就是在杀死衆生的法身慧命!

    5、有师兄说“小房子超度效果好,说明这个法门有用,不管是不是外道,只要利益衆生就行啦”。其实“小房子”是将几种佛经佛咒组合在一起(在纸上作念几次的记号然后烧),然後集中力量导向一件所求的事情。不能说汤好喝,装汤的碗就一定好。不是烧“小房子”起了什麽超度作用,是念佛经佛咒感通佛力加持而起了作用。不要这个“小房子”,诵经持咒念佛行善,将功德直接回向,是一样的。何况,这个碗上面沾满了泥巴和毒素,喝汤的同时也在慢性中毒,这和饮鸩止渴有什麽区别?!如果一个佛弟子,说“不管是不是外道”的话,也就是宁愿信灵异信神通信感应、相信颠倒凡夫见,连佛陀的圣言量都产生怀疑或用自己的想法去打折扣,那麽,还能称为佛弟子麽?如果受了叁皈依,叁皈依的戒体都可能失去。建议回去认真读一下叁皈依,学习一下何为“皈依”吧。

    6、台长声称自己能和观世音菩萨通灵,更有甚者,通过种种方式和途径,称自己是“菩萨”,这种行为和楞严经中所呵斥的阴魔是相符的。大家可以去读一读楞严经中五十阴魔章节。(楞严经五十阴魔浅译: http://book.bfnn.org/books2/1223.htm

    对于附佛外道与正信的佛教,我们可以从教义上、行为上、目的上加以甄别。教义上,看是否符合佛教的基本教义,如四谛、十二因缘、八正道等,尤其是不是符合“诸行无常,诸法无我,诸受是苦,涅盘寂静”这四法印;行为上,看是不是尊重叁宝、依止叁宝,示在家弟子相时是不是行好护持叁宝的本份,是否持守戒律,宣传某种教法的目的是不是和世俗的名闻利养掛钩,等等;这也要再次建议学佛人要学习一下楞严经,特别是五十阴魔章节,拿佛经一对照就一目了然。

    正信的佛教,着重于教导衆生认识宇宙人生的真实意义,对世间的福乐只是作为引导衆生趣向佛乘法的阶段性工具,最终的目的是令一切衆生放下对世间的贪求和执着,得到生命的升华和超越、到达解脱的彼岸;正信的佛教,是无缘大慈、同体大悲,提倡行菩萨道,自度化他;正信的佛教,是智慧之学,是心性之学。佛教,充满了慈悲的、智慧的、平等的、向上的、积极的、光明的、抚慰人心的正面力量!而不是自私的、愚癡的、分别的、消极的、扭曲的、阴暗的、恐怖的鬼神教、超度法门、通灵法门。所以,建议对佛法感兴趣的有缘、初学佛的同修们,如果真心想了解佛教,想学习佛法,就依止叁宝、以法为师、以戒为师,多读大乘经典原文,看看佛陀的宣教到底是什麽,再多听多看曆代祖师、当代公认的高僧大德的开示和讲经,先树立自己的基本正见,切不可贪图好乐神通灵异,被别解邪见所颠倒迷惑、误己慧命。因为我们现在得了人身,听闻到佛法,是累生累世种下的无量善根福报所致,要好好珍惜。

  9. Charles-1answered October 12, 2016

    > Hi all, I’m here for some help. I’m Buddhism as well but I have to admit that i don’t really practise much,

    It is good to look into learning systematically and comprehensively: http://thedailyenlightenment.com/category/06/ Would you like to receive course updates by email?

    > such as chanting and reading much about buddhism. However, i hold some Buddhism value deep in my heart like not harming other person, not to do bad things and believe in karma, filial to my parent and take care of them, respect them in certain ways, having helpful minded if i able to help and etc.

    This is wonderful, though there are even more profound teachings to learn and practise too, so as to benefit one and all more fully, to advance towards Buddhahood.

    > These days, i had been dating a girl which is my girlfriend who is believe in this Master Lu.

    67, and later 450 Buddhist organisations have banded together to collectively denounce Lu’s wrong teachings: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=833288423474277&id=548187238651065 Worldwide umbrella Buddhist groups in China and Hong Kong are doing the same.

    > Initially i feel nice to be with her, but couple of months later i found something not right as she keep on insist to go to the temple for chanting. The explanation was she could find peace at the temple when seeing the Guan Ying statue. Similarly she also need to burn the little houses. I don’t know how many she had burned and it has expiry date as well if you don’t burn it.

    The burning is not a genuine Buddhist practice, along with obsessive chanting to meet deadlines: https://www.facebook.com/TheDailyEnlightenment/photos/a.123270767724230.24042.114107808640526/1136934539691176/?type=3&permPage=1

    > Besides, she used to chant early in the morning around 8am. As im not aware she is chanting and i keep on talking to her when i was driving her to somewhere. Subsequently i felt im talking to a wood.

    You should bring her to this place for Buddhist counselling: http://dc.org.sg/personalgrowth/free-counselling/ Please do it before it is too late. Some have turned mentally disturbed due to following Lu’s wrong teachings.

    > I was quite shock about what James-1Answered. My girlfriend also did show me those Master Lu shows on how he could flash back to his follower past, able to see the patient house, what they did before life, then giving some advice and somehow they feel getting better. Not to forget to burn a lot a lot of small houses. This is quite hardly get into my mind.

    Lu does NOT see the past. He only spins stories that ALL cannot be verified. He also makes wild and wide guesses, some of which only happen to be roughly correct. Please do not be fooled.

    > Just these days, my girlfriend told me that she really want to be vegetarian. I couldn’t really comprehend all these and i just get to know from some blog that Master Lu is promoting to be vegetarian. This really affect our lifestyle as im not vegetarian.

    Going vegetarian or even vegan are practises taught by the Buddha: http://thedailyenlightenment.com/2016/10/how-should-all-aspiring-for-buddhahood-eat-and-drink/ However, not all are required to go veg if not ready yet. One can at least reduce meat-eating.

    > There is a lot of things need to be done. I would foresee we will just quarrelling on what are the food we want to eat. This really a road block to our relationship. Anyway, i would like to know how i should help my girlfriend to get out from what Master Lu teaching? Can anyone give me some advice. I really wish to workout the relationship with my girlfriend to build a family, having our kids, grow old and die together. Thanks, Charles

    The advice is as above – to seek the proper professional Buddhist counselling.

  10. There are many false teachers about it seems. In the United States there have been more than a few teachers who preyed on their students sexually or financially, going back thirty years. Some of them were from recognized lineages at that. Seduced by Western immorality and materialism perhaps? In this country anyone can gives themselves a title like Bhante, Roshi or Achan, so beware, beware.
