My story on how I started practising Guan Yin Citta
Firstly, let me express my deepest gratitude to the Greatly Merciful Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Master Lu,
Dear fellow readers, my name is Andy Low, and this is just a brief background about me and how I got involved in the practice of Guan Yin Citta. I went through a period of hardship and health problems so I suffered from depression, low self-esteem and anxiety issues and couldn't figure out why my life was so bad. Life seemed pretty meaningless to me at that point since I didn't see any hope in the future. Nothing went the way I expected or wanted to, so I was trying to look for answers.
I was watching through a ton of self-development videos by some famous public speakers and also watching videos about different religions like Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism. I just watched it to see if I could find any inspiration about the meaning of life. But I had a very prejudiced view that people can't be trusted and religion, ideologies and theories were just a tool by the rich and powerful to control the mass. It wasn't until I watched a Master Lu's Totem reading video on YouTube that something sparked within me because it was so different from anything else I watched before.
I became curious and was addicted to finding out whether he was the real deal or a fraud. I watched his videos and listened to his radio programmes from the moment I woke up to when I slept. I even asked my parents to watch it all with me to see if there were anything suspicious. However, I found out he has been doing this for the past 20 years. If he wasn't at a Dharma convention, he would be in his radio station doing a programme where anyone can call him up for a Totem reading on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. And on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, he would propagate Buddhism, help callers decipher their dreams and other metaphysical stuff. If he was a fraud, he wouldn't be able to be so consistent and working on this for so long. Also in his Totem readings, he never sold anything or asked the enquirer to buy any special amulets or fortune items. All Master Lu asked them to do was recite mantras, offer Little Houses, adopt a vegetarian diet which doesn't cost anything. And watching all the videos and seeing how so many people around the world saw an improvement to their wellbeing after practising Guan Yin Citta, we then decided to pay the UK Guan Yin Citta Practitioner Centre a visit in mid-April 2016 and started practising it from then.
Fast forward to present time, everything is going well for me. My energy levels improved, my relationship with my family improved, I no longer suffer from the mental and health problems that plagued me before in the past and my business is improving a lot. That is why I feel compelled to translate existing materials into English and share Guan Yin Citta to you, so that you can benefit from it and see a positive change in your life. That's the end of my story of how I got into Guan Yin Citta. If there was anything inappropriate to what I have written, I ask for the Bodhisattva's mercy and forgiveness. Amitabha. 🙏🏻
