Shown above: a page from lotuschef's blogspot!
November 2008, about 3 months after I took refuge with GM Lu, I asked GM Lu to teach me to write like him.
After being ordained in September 2009, I started to write articles in dual languages of English & Chinese.
These were mostly visions that I had during cultivation or in dreams.
Somehow, someone blocked them from getting publish in True Buddha Weekly here locally. :)
WHY the block?
Hahaha! I have already written about this matter in another article in this blogspot.
I continue to lead group cultivation in local temples or private events like Live Animal Release.
Sometime in October 2010, Lotus Raymond, offered to set up a blogspot for me to post photos of activities like Live Animal Release; Chanting Dedication; and share my thoughts and viewpoints in Cultivation.
Did GM hear my request?
Now, Lotus Raymond was given a chance by GM to help propagate Buddha Dharma!
O! He has been supportive hence!
The photos and videos are shared in these blogspot too!
He has much blessing, for when he needs a job, he got one the next day! :)
Now, Lotus HG that offered the domain - lotuschef.org to me in October 2011 and set up in February 2012. He shut it down in February 2013 without prior notice!
He was under pressure from his own perceived Authority that ordered severance of the blog!
Sometime in late August 2012, GM told me to reopened lotuschef.blogspot.com from Google.
I didn't take any action.
Then lotuschef.org malfunction one day and forced me to reopen the google blog, sometime around October 2012.
Then HG said he will transfer the domain name to me and his reasons were accounting matters, which he claimed that his accountant warned him about expenses for the blog coming from his private account & etc....
Thanks to GM once again, we set up few blogs in readiness!
We kept asking for the domain transfer from HG since late October 2012, but HG said he was otherwise occupied!
Finally in early February, HG shutdown the Domain, lotuschef.org with giving us any notice!
We reacted fast and bounce back into action with purekarmavihara.org in 4 hours!
While setting up purekarmavihara.org, we learned that Domain cost about USD 10 - 20 a year!
Maintenance or monthly usages of data cost about USD 1 to 2.
Question: Is HG so poor that he needs to deduct these pittance from his taxable income?
If that's HG financial status, then his intent with the gift of the Domain & usages, is truly questionable, concur?
Remember GM recent speech on the Emptiness of the 3 Wheels?
That is : No Giver, No Receiver, No Material Transacted!
The current sponsor for purekarmavihara.org is Lotus GC, from Indonesia.
He is the one that has aura of South Heavenly King and moves in a steam of golden yellow light!
If you are given chances by GM or any Divinities, to help and support Buddha Dharma Propagation, HOLD TIGHT!
Do not have any thoughts of Returns from doing so too!
Of course, there are other factors that come into play too, like Your Personal Karmic influences; Affinity with Buddha; ......
O! Also bear in mind that $$$ is never the issue when you are truly sincere in helping or supporting Buddha Dharma Propagation!
Well, all I can say is that when you negate on Chances that GM gave you, You are the one that LOOSE OUT!
