One evening at a chapter in Taiwan, the VM was giving a speech after cultivation session.
He said: This afternoon, during fire offering event, shizun raised spirit!
I was shocked by this remark from a VM who has followed GM Lu for many many years! :)
So he doesn't know the difference between [Raising Spirit] & [Yogic Union with Divinity]!
I set this aside as he sounded very disgruntled in his speech, unhappy with what GM Lu remarked about his likes of women and money!
However, the contents of his speech lacks true depth of Buddha Dharma.
Yes! His body speech mind belied his external "dressed-up" of a vajra-master.
Just as many VMs made claims that "Fo Pusa" all came (佛菩萨都有来！) to grace their events, their statements or claims not supported at all!
AND the one that always claimed that "Fo Pusa" all came, is the one that has erie green light in his eyes & his aura is a black-green in color!
He has descended into the Hell Realm!
Now back to the topic at hand. :)
Raising spirits: One only needs to match the spirits' mindset, for example an animal's mindset of greed, sexual misconduct, violent, mean, petty, cruel, smelly, dirty, ......
Yes! Its you mindset that draws these spirits with equal "frequencies" to you and attached or possessed you!
As per GM Lu, if this possession lasted more than 6 years, very very hard to persuade the spirit to leave you!
Yogic Union with Divinity: GM Lu stressed the criteria as Pure Body Speech Mind! :)
Your mindset matched the Buddha's or Boddhisattva's or Dharmapala's!
The Key for Yogic Union with Divinity is PURITY of one's body speech mind!
I shared in this blog GM Lu's article on having pets in the house or near the altar or shrine.
These animals in turn attracts spirits of like frequencies and their presence deterred the Fo Pusa from gracing these houses and altars!
What can you do?
Steer clear of "animals" or "ghostly" spirits!
