But because in his present life he is ridiculed by others, his previous karmic offenses are destroyed and he will attain Anuttarasamyaksambodhi. 15. 2006 Buddhist Association of Canada Buddhist Association of Canada Chapter 16 Karmic Obstructions can be Purified Subhuti, I recall that in the past, for limitless asamkhyeya kalpas prior to Burning Lamp Buddha, I encountered eighty-four thousands of millions of billions of nayutas of Buddhas, and made offerings to them all, and served them all without exception but if there is a person in the final period who can receive, hold, read, and recite this Sutra, the merit and virtue he obtains is a hundred times more, a thousand times more, a million, billion times more, to the point of being so great it exceeds all calculation and comparison, than the merit and virtue I gained from making offerings to all those Buddhas. 16. 2006 Buddhist Association of Canada Buddhist Association of Canada Chapter 16 Karmic Obstructions can be Purified Subhuti, if I were to express thoroughly the merit and virtue of a good man, or good woman, who in the final period receives, holds, reads, and recites the Sutra, those who heard might go insane, and disbelieve. Subhuti, you should know that this Sutras meaning is inconceivable, and that its resulting retribution also is inconceivable. 17. 2006 Buddhist Association of Canada Buddhist Association of Canada 18. 2006 Buddhist Association of Canada Buddhist Association of Canada Case 33: The Symbol of the Circle : Chen Cao, Ministry President, went to see Zi Fu. When Fu saw him coming, he immediately drew a circle. Cao said, My coming here like this has already missed the point, how much more so, to go on and draw a circle! Fu there upon closed the door of his room. Xue Dou said, Chen Cao has just one eye. 19. 2006 Buddhist Association of Canada Buddhist Association of Canada Case 33: The Symbol of the Circle : Round, round, the pearls go round, ringing like hanging jades, Borne on horses, carried on asses, loaded on iron ships, Imparted to unconcerned travelers of mountains and seas. When fishing for a tortoise, down goes a cage trap. Xue Duo added, No Zen monk in the world can hop out. : 20. 2006 Buddhist Association of Canada Buddhist Association of Canada www.ChamShanTemple.org www.shengguangshi.blogspot.com ShengguangShi@hotmail.com Shengguang Shi Tom Cheung Kam Cheung Dennis Yap Questions and Comments 21. 2006 Buddhist Association of Canada Buddhist Association of Canada yun xio sn zhng zh fn no We wish to rid ourselves of the three hindrances and all klesas. yun d zh hu zhn mng lao We wish to gain wisdom and real understanding. p yun zu zhng x xio ch We wish all sinful hindrances to be totally eradicated. sh sh chng xng p s do In one life after another we always follow Bodhisattvas paths.
