On the 16th of December 2018, I woke up from a dream at 3 am. I received a thought message from the Dharma protectors to go on a trip to the underworld, and there was official business. I then fell into slumber again, and my spirit was sent to the court of Yama. When I arrived, the senior Yama said “The Dharma protectors of Guan Yin Citta has sent an order to us, a sinned spirit from hell was specially selected to give his experience here. He’s a heartless guy who was responsible for another sinned spirit who committed suicide due to being cheated, and he’s selected to warn the sentient beings in the human realm about the karmic retribution of being unfaithful and behaving promiscuously. One must not think too casually of sexual relationships, and be irresponsible of somebody’s feelings. The courts of the underworld will keep everything you do in the record. Karma and karmic retribution are real, not false.”
Then the senior Yama sternly called out, “[Name of sinned spirit], report your deeds to our guest in full honesty.”
The male sinned spirit said, “I was wrong; I had no intention of learning Buddhism nor reciting sutras. At the time, [Name of a girl] in [City Name] were propagating the Dharma with the Guan Yin Citta practitioner group. I saw that she looked beautiful, so I approached her. But the fellow practitioners who accompanied her protected her very well, especially her mother. She regularly went out to propagate the Dharma with the practitioner group. I pretended to be interested in the Buddha-Dharma and used it as a way to start a conversation with her, then requested her WeChat username to add her as a friend. Every day, I would search on the internet to look for any questions regarding Buddhism to ask her. I know that she’s kind-hearted and a bit foolish. Gradually Buddhism did affect me, and so I learned Buddhism and recited sutras. I also frequently accompany her and her fellow practitioners to go out and propagate the Dharma
Maybe it’s due to affinity from the previous life; I’m really infatuated with her. I know that Master has told us that when men and women are propagating together, our thoughts have to be pure, and mustn’t look at each other in an attracted way. I also feel that in the past, I was promiscuous and had many different girlfriends. After I learnt Buddhism, I made efforts to observe the precepts and tried to reform my bad habits. I was still young and was full of vigour. There was a period after I practised Buddhism, where I couldn’t control myself and went to look at pornographic videos to satisfy myself and secretly developed feelings for her. She looked like [Name of a celebrity]. Afterwards, I had impure thoughts, and started to pursue [Name of the girl] and sent her many luxurious gifts. Here, I would like to give my advice to the girls in the living realm; men will not randomly give out luxurious gifts. If you are sincere in learning Buddhism and have no intention of developing a relationship, then don’t accept any seemingly devoted acts that happen out of the blue from men. A majority of them will have intentions of developing a relationship with you. Master has told us that both men and women must observe the precepts, and don’t commit deeds of sexual misconduct. Hell truly exists! Don’t be like me when you die." He cried.
“Slowly, love developed over time, and we became a couple. Our relationship developed then went another level further. I didn’t know that she had already vowed not to commit deeds of sexual misconduct. Afterwards, she became pregnant, and she wanted us to get married. I was still young, and my parents wouldn’t accept that I marry her. In the past, when I promised that I would marry her, it was a lie, but she was naive. I never intended to marry so early in life. I persuaded her to abort the child and acted indifferent when she cried. My attitude was also resolute. In the end, she did abort the child. Then as time went on, I slowly felt that she was too obstinate and willful, and her behaviour was strange. So I was thinking of a reason to break up with her. But I didn’t know that she couldn’t bear with it and jumped off a building, and committed suicide.
One day, when I was driving to a nightclub to look for a female partner to play with, I suddenly felt dizzy, and at that moment, I crashed and died. After death, did I realise that she had been weeping and complaining in front of Yama, and received approval to take revenge. Then I was sentenced to be punished in the hell of excrement, and inside the pool, I was bitten by countless bugs. It was painful, itchy and it stank, the suffering was indescribable. If you haven’t been to hell, you wouldn’t be able to image the suffering there.”
The senior Yama said, “You’re still so young, yet you are lustful, even after learning Buddhism and reciting sutras, you were not sincere in reforming yourself and becoming wholesome, and you cheated the feelings of a fellow female Buddhist. After [Name of the girl] committed suicide, her mother began to doubt the Buddha-Dharma, and she retreated and no longer recited sutras. Within the 49 days after her death, nobody helped her to ascend, so while she was in hell to be punished, she constantly resented you that you were completely heartless and unfaithful. While you were still alive, you kept committing deeds of sexual misconduct. The courts were recording everything down. Then when your lifespan was depleted (excess indulgence in sexual activities will reduce one’s lifespan), her spirit was permitted to return to the living realm, and she occupied your body out of resentment of you playing with her feelings. Then with a turn of the steering wheel, you got into a car accident and died. After she has got her revenge, she was taken back to hell by the executioners to continue her sentence. When our guest made a trip to the hell of biting cold and [Name of the girl] saw her and knew that she was a practitioner of Guan Yin Citta, she cried in front of her and exclaimed about her injustice. So our guest persuaded her to recite Guan Yin Bodhisattva’s Holy Name in hell. Since she had recited Buddhist scriptures when she was alive, Guan Yin Bodhisattva has heard her call of suffering. Hence the Bodhisattva sent our guest to the underworld and used her case to write a report to warn the sentient beings in the living realm, and use this merit-virtue to release her from hell.
You’re heartless and hateful. After your sentence is over, you will reincarnate as a poor woman, and you will encounter [Name of the girl] in the next life, and your karmic affinity will bring you two together. You will repay her several years of love debts (it will be an unwholesome affinity. [Name of the male sinned spirit] will treat [Name of the female sinned spirit] very well, but [Name of the female sinned spirit] will be heartless towards him. (Here, I had deeply felt how animosity breeds more animosity and when will it end? The cycle of rebirth is truly neverending). Let me give all living men and women my piece of advice, the form of man or woman is but a construction of blood, flesh and bones, if you give in to your desires for it, you will only reduce your life and diminish your virtues. After you die, you will wake up in my court and be ready to be punished in hell. One must not fool with other people’s feelings.”
After he finished, my spirit returned to the living realm. I woke up from my dream and saw that it was 9 am. I had overslept.

It is all true. Nobody could make something like this up. Many practitioner groups experienced the same situation, where many guys who enter would first look for the most beautiful one. Also, many children who learn Guan Yin Citta are very honest; all these girls have been taught to be honest by me. If you cheat them, you’ll die from a car crash and go to hell. ‘Excess indulgence in sexual activities will reduce one’s lifespan’, this statement is true, and the reduction is very severe. Originally a person could live up to 70 years old, but they could be reduced by 10-20 years.
