351: Karmic Retribution of Killing

Abstract:

Shengzong had been very hard to be taken care of since birth. He barely slept whole night through. He had been suffering from skin disease since he was ten months old. He was most severely affected at his age of 2 in the way that the skin ulceration with bleeding and pus discharge happened almost all over his upper and lower limbs. It was just like that of pan-fried fish. Base on his skin conditions, he was supposed to be at high risks of cellulitis, bacteremia, and septicemia.Currently Shengzong is five years old, he is entirely recovered from his skin disease only by applying the margarine blessed by Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche. It seems to be inconceivable to the doctors!

In 1998, being aware of the His Eminence Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche by one of my friends Fengyi Lee, my husband and I met with Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche and we ask Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche to bless my late elder brother who was suffering from the terminal stage of hepatoma at that moment. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche gave my brother enlightenment over the phone first, and went down to Dasi  (where is far away from Taipei) by car to give my brother blessing one week before he passed away. On that day, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche came back to Taipei by Taxi immediately after blessing my brother without taking any rest nor drinking. Furthermore, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche compassionately granted my sister’s request by the phone to practice Phowa for my brother right after he died. We did not make any offerings to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche before and after my brother’s death, but my brother still received such auspicious Phowa Dharma. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s heart to benefit all the sentient beings is so incredible.

Because of that, in 1999, my husband and I sought refuge under Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, and routinely attended the Friday’s Chod pujas and Sunday’s pujas. More than one year later, one Friday night after completing the Chod practice, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche mentioned that a woman who committed suicide has been liberated tonight. Upon hearing it, I felt that she should be my mother, who killed herself by drinking pesticide when I was five. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche confirmed my guess when I met Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche on the following Saturday at Jewelry Company. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche also gave blessings to me when I’ve been crying my heart out at that time.

Before my husband and I were getting married in 2000, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche selected the wedding date by our request and advised us to prepare the wedding banquet in vegetarian. However, we didn’t follow both of Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s advises, nor was I brave enough to talk about the vegetarian banquet. In response to that I dared to say the impossibility to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche merely talked to us, “You’ll have to bear with the hardships then.” It was until when Shengzong was born that we finally realized what Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche had meant.

Shengzong had been very hard to be taken care of since he was born. He barely slept whole night through. He had been suffering from skin disease since he was ten months old. He was most severely affected at his age of 2 in the way that in the way that the skin ulceration with bleeding and pus discharge happened almost all over his upper and lower limbs. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche once said that Shengzong’s ulcerated skin was just like that of pan-fried fish. It was Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche who liberated Shengzong’s suffering and sorrow whenever he suffered. Each time we took Shengzong to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for help, Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche always gave blessings to him from head to toe, and never blamed me for his sufferings caused by my excesses.

We once knelt down before Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche for Shengzong’s diarrhea lasting for one week and Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche immediately gave blessing on Shengzong’s abdomen without our asking. Shengzong’s diarrhea was gone when we arrived at home. There was another time when a piece of muscle of Shengzong’s medial aspect of lower lid margin was scraped off due to his scratching. Again we rushed to the Glorious Jewelry Company for help. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche blew air on the lesion site, and it is recovered on our way home. From then on, the skin wound around that place of Shengzong’s eyes was not so serious any more even Shengzong still scratched quite often. Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s powerful blessings are indeed the manifestations of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas!

Currently Shengzong is 5 years old, his doctor thought it was inconceivable that he was entirely recovered from his skin disease. Base on his conditions, he was supposed to be at high risks of  cellulitis, bacteremia, and septicemia, but he did not have any of them. Without taking the Western medical treatment, Shengzong was cured only by applying the margarine and nectar blessed by Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche on the skin lesion sites, attending the pujas consecutively, and receiving Chinese medical treatment. The final result was beyond the doctors’ ability and capacity to be achieved. No wonder the doctors would like to amazingly exclaim it in praise!

The previous two generations of my family were fisherman and had engaged in the fish-killing affair for living at the Matsu islands. Furthermore, when I was a child, I also have committed many sins at the seashore, such as polluting the water, dislocating the stones, eating numerous uncooked and shelled sentient beings in the sea and eating numerous fishes, shrimps, conchs, and shellfishes by steaming, boiling, stir fried or deep fried. I was supposed to be easily sick, short- lived, have a discord family, and eventually go to hell after death. Thanks for Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s merciful and compassionate blessings, I has been being able to repay my karmic debt while I am still alive and so as not to suffer the karmic retributions in hell.

During these years when my kid was sick, I introspected that I had so many bad habits and I did not stand firm in faith off and on . This is what Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche has ever enlightened that I didn’t truly repent but just seemingly repent for reward. I did not take the cause and effect but, instead, was requesting Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche all the time to satisfy my personal desire, which was to look forwards to my son’s full recovery so that our sleep would not be interrupted any more. Just as Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche once enlightened, “You all know that I possess extraordinary powers, but you all have no idea about that and wouldn’t believe how extraordinary the power I have.”, I knew that I deserved those worse karma, but I have no idea about that and wouldn’t believe how worse they are. I am so grateful to Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s mercy and compassion that Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche never gives up those foolish and stubborn disciples as I am.

I sincerely wish that the fright of killing karma and the greatness of Buddha Dharma could be perceived by everybody from my family’s case. I wish not only my family could get Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s care, shelter and blessing but also all sentient beings in sorrows could receive Rinchen Dorjee Rinpoche’s helps.
