問:2019年1月5日,中午在觀音堂拜佛結束時,見到周倉菩薩聖像大放金光,不久,護法菩薩傳意念於弟子:『汝領關帝聖旨往閻王殿聽審,請童子轉告心靈法門弟子,不管男女,許願清修犯邪淫者,在天地屬大妄語、大罪孽。跪在佛前起誓容易,但是守願實難。望天下佛子謹而慎之,對發願一事莫當兒戲。聽審案裡,有多少是佛前許願又違願謗佛者。我佛雖憐憫你們地獄罪苦,可天地因果報應是自作自受,普天佛子好自為之。』

Enquiry:

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.”

回到家中,魂體被護法輕輕提起送往X國地府,只見一對男女罪靈跪在閻王殿前。女罪靈滿身怨氣,極度怨恨。男罪靈渾身發抖,在殿前哀求閻王爺減輕刑罰。地藏王菩薩微放金光加持罪靈,非常慈悲。大閻王爺:『童子,觀世音菩薩慈悲憐憫此罪靈,在她家中親人打進妳師父問答節目,妳師父慈悲憐憫老母喪女之痛給她看圖騰之時,菩薩眼見罪靈在地府被扣押等候審判,特安排此次地府相見。』

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!

大閻王爺:『妳既已許願清修就該守好戒律,本王查妳記錄,無數次與男罪靈發生苟且之事。我曾派鬼差拉妳魂體下來警告,可妳回陽世後還是不知悔改。』閻王爺點開銀幕,女罪靈自己在佛前許願清修。在一次弘法時遇到男罪靈,兩人早已在求學時期認識。男子沒有興趣學佛,拿了女罪靈微信號假借談佛法心得千方百計靠近她。兩人過後克制不住自己情感,發展關係,鑄成大錯。

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.

女罪靈過後懷孕,自己害怕,跑去醫院進行人工流產。罪靈母親發現女兒氣色虛弱,詢問XXX。罪靈撒謊說自己月事不調,其實是去醫院打胎回來後身體極度虛弱。男罪靈過後撞車死亡,死後就被鬼差帶去糞池地獄懲戒,在糞池裡怨恨女罪靈不曾告訴他早已許願清修,還和他一起發展關係,讓他被地府扣除陽壽,增添罪孽,墮落地獄。得閻王爺批准後,在女罪靈陽壽只剩數日返回陽間討命債(前世冤仇)。女罪靈因為劫數爆發,來不及懺悔違願打胎罪過,命終被鬼差帶去地府等候審判。

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.

閻王爺讓弟子觀看生死簿(判官筆記本上的罪靈善惡記錄):6月,一魂一魄已經被拉下去地獄懲戒了,罪靈在陽世意識常陷入惆悵憂鬱;7月,魂體返陽間,發現懷孕,偷偷跑去醫院人工流產;11月,鬼差上陽間帶走一魂,醫院下病危通知書,進行手術;12月,男罪靈上來陽間,強硬拉走罪靈一魂帶下去地府;1月,肉體意識宣告死亡。

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.

地藏王菩薩給罪靈慈悲開示:『汝某世曾是XX附屬小國公主,此男是汝身邊護衛,互有情意可有緣無分。前世情緣,今世相見。本該今世結為夫妻了前世緣,可妳求學時期自視甚高,斷了此緣。後面相見,緣分再續,可既已許下清修弘法大願,就不能知錯而不改。憐憫妳無知無明,請童子回陽世書寫出來,讓妳家人七七四十九天之內念誦經典組合(小房子)消妳地獄罪業。業盡還投人道有佛緣之人家,下世再聞佛法。』感恩師父。

弟子 2019-01-05

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.

5th of January 2019.

答:我都知道有這麼個人的,跟你們說,不要開玩笑。感情的事情開什麼玩笑?下去了,看見了吧?你們去看,出車禍的大多是犯戒的,馬上帶走。而且你們都不知道,當一個人昏迷的時候,就是像剛才她講的那樣,魂魄被帶走了,最後帶走的時候就是把另外一個魂也拉走。不要開玩笑,真的,緣分這東西……就像剛剛她說的,你就算不能度他學佛,也不要去續這些緣分了。我就算不救你,我也不要害自己。感情的事情,誰進去誰就出不來,就是人間地獄。哪個人感情進去了不在裡面痛苦的?不是像地獄一樣痛苦嗎?

Master’s reply:

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?
