On the 5th of January 2019, When I finished paying my respects to the Buddhas at the Guan Yin Temple in the afternoon. I saw that the statue of Zhoucang Bodhisattva glowed radiantly with a golden light. Not long after, the Dharma protectors sent me a thought message, “Under Guandi Bodhisattva’s orders, you shall attend a hearing at the court of Yama. Please relay to all disciples of Guan Yin Citta, no matter if they’re male or female, those who had violated their vow to abstain from sexual relations and has committed sexual misconduct is considered to be a great lie, and it’s a great sin. It’s easy to kneel before the Buddhas and make a vow, but to abide the vow is hard. I wish that all Buddhists will be cautious about it, and don’t take making vows lightly. Those who are judged in Yama’s court, many are Buddhists who had violated their vows and slandered Buddha. Although we pity about their suffering in hell, one must understand that they reap what they sow, everything is cause and consequence. I wish that all Buddhists will conduct themselves well.”
When I returned home, I felt that my spirit gradually separated from my body by the Dharma protectors, and I was sent to the court of Yama in [Country]. I saw a male and female sinned spirit kneeling before Yama. The female sinned spirit was filled with resentment, while the male sinned spirit was shivering with fear and was pleading Yama to reduce his punishment. Ksitigarba Bodhisattva was also there; he was emitting a golden light to bless the sinned spirits; he was very compassionate.The senior Yama said, “Honored guest, Guan Yin Bodhisattva mercifully pity this sinned spirit. A family member of hers called into your master’s radio programme, and when your master helped her find out about her whereabouts out of compassion for her grief, the Bodhisattva saw that she was at the court of Yama waiting to be sentenced. That’s why they specially arranged for this hearing.”
女罪靈：『我是來自X國，XX地區的XXX。媽媽，女兒對不起您，無法奉養您到終老。我犯大錯了，現在說出來讓各位師兄引以為戒。男女之間如果自己意志不堅定，寧願失去弘法的機會也不要在一起弘法，你們不知道前世的因緣一旦相遇是難以克制自己感情的。媽媽您要一心一意修習佛法，弘法度眾，往生淨土，這是女兒的心願。觀世音菩薩心靈法門是真實不虛的！』The female sinned spirit said, “I came from [City], [Country]. I’m sorry, mum. I can’t be there for you when you grow old and pass on. I made a grave mistake; now, I’ll share my experience to serve as a warning for others. If one isn’t resolute in controlling their feelings of love, then they should rather lose the opportunity to propagate the Dharma instead of propagating together with them. You aren’t aware of any past-life karmic affinities, so when you finally encounter the other person, it’s hard for you to control your feelings for them. Mum, you must be single-minded in learning the Buddha-Dharma, and propagate the Dharma and spiritually awaken others so that you can be reborn in the pure land. That is my wish. Guan Yin Bodhisattva’s Guan Yin Citta is real!
The senior Yama said, “Since you’ve already vowed to abstain from sexual relations, you should’ve properly abided by it. I have checked your records; you had improper relations with this male sinned spirit many times. I had dispatched executioners to take your spirit here as a warning before, but you did not reform when you returned to the realm of the living.”The senior Yama turned on the monitor, and it showed some scenes. First, it showed the time when the female sinned spirit vowed to abstain from sexual relations in front of the Buddhas. Then it showed the time when she was propagating the Dharma and met the male sinned spirit, which they had known before during university time. The man wasn’t interested in learning Buddhism; he only pretended to be interested in getting closer to her and getting her contact details. Afterwards, both of them weren’t able to control their feelings for each other and developed a relationship, and made a grave mistake.
Afterwards, the female sinned spirit got pregnant and was afraid, and so went to the hospital to abort it. Her mother noticed that she was weak and so asked her what had happened. She replied by lying that there’s a problem with her menstruation, when in fact, she became weak after aborting her child in the hospital. The male sinned spirit died in a car crash, and after he died, he was taken to the hell of excrement to be punished. Inside the pool, he resented that the female sinned spirit didn’t tell him that she had already vowed to abstain from sexual relations, and had relations with him, which caused his lifespan to be reduced by the courts, and increased the weight of his sins. Thus he descended into hell. After he received Yama’s approval, when the female sinned spirit had almost finished up her lifespan, he returned to the realm of the living to get his revenge and claim her life (a resentment also inherited from their previous life). Because the female spirit’s tribulation had already been triggered, she didn’t have enough time to repent about her sin of abortion. When she died, the executioners took her to the courts to wait for punishment.
Yama allowed me to look at the book of life and death (it records all sinned spirits’ wholesome and unwholesome deeds): In June, her spirit was taken to hell and was punished. When she returned to the living realm, she frequently felt depressed. In July, she discovered that she was pregnant, and went to have an abortion without others knowing. In November, the executioners took away some of her life, the doctors had sent her notification of critical illness, and she must undergo an operation. In December, the male sinned spirit returned to the living realm and forcefully dragged her spirit down to the underworld. In January, her physical body had lost all consciousness and was declared dead.
Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva mercifully shared his words of wisdom to the sinned spirits, “You were once a princess in a small country, while the male was once your bodyguard. You had affection for one another, but you were not destined to be with each other. The affinity from the previous life has been passed to this present life, and you met with each other. Originally in this life, you would’ve been married and concluded the affinity of the previous life, but when you were in university, you viewed yourself too highly, and this affinity was ceased. Then afterwards, you met with each other again, and this affinity was rekindled. However, you have already made a great vow of abstaining from sexual relations and propagate the Dharma, so you must correct yourself when you know what you’re doing is wrong. I pity that you were ignorant. I have asked our honoured guest to write your circumstance in a book when she returns to the living realm, and also tell your parents to offer as many Little Houses within the forty days, to eliminate some of your negative karma that’s responsible for making you be punished in hell. Once it has been eliminated, you could still reincarnate in the human realm in a family that has an affinity with Buddhism and able to encounter the Buddha Dharma again.”I’m grateful Master.

I know that person. Let me tell you, don’t fool around. Do you think that love relationships are something that you can fool around? Then you go down, you see? Just take a look, most people who get into car accidents are people who had violated their vows, and are immediately dragged away. Also, something you may not be aware of; when a person is in a coma, it means that their spirit had been dragged away. Don’t fool around. Affinity is the kind of thing… just like what she said earlier, even if you can’t spiritually awaken the other person to learn Buddhism, but refrain from rekindling the affinity. Even if I can’t save you, I will not hurt myself. Love is like a trap, those who enter are able to get themselves back out. It’s like living hell. Who doesn’t suffer when they enter into a relationship? Doesn’t it feel like living hell?
