Mortals' Questions 凡人的问题

Terjemahan Indonesia: Pertanyaan-pertanyaan Orang Awam

Dear Lama Lotuschef,
Amitoufo. My name is D. I live in Jakarta. I would like to take refuge in Grandmaster Lu through you, Lama Lotuschef. I hope you may help me. Looking forward for your reply. Thank you.
Warm regard,


Hi D,
This is the procedure for remote empowerment:
(2) By “Remote Empowerment”
It is not often possible for someone who lives far away to take refuge in person. Students who desire to take refuge can, on the first or fifteenth of any lunar month, at 7:00 a.m., while facing the direction of the rising sun, recite the Fourfold Refuge Mantra three times:
“Namo Guru bei, Namo Buddha ye, Namo Dharma ye, Namo Sangha ye. Seeking Living Buddha Lian-sheng’s guidance, I am taking refuge in the True Buddha” and prostrate three times.

On the first or fifteenth of every lunar month, His Holiness performs a ceremony of “remote empowerment” at the True Buddha Quarter to give the empowerment to all students who could not journey there in person.

A student who takes refuge from a distance after performing the rites at home, only needs to send a letter to the True Buddha Quarter stating one’s intent to seek refuge, along with one’s name, address, age, and an offering in any amount to the Buddhas.
Upon receiving the letter, His Holiness will send a certificate, a picture of the guru, and a note stating the level of practice that one should begin with.
This is the address for you to send your details and gongyang for refuge purpose:
Taiwan Lei Tsang Temple
Attn: GM Sheng Yan Lu
No.100 Lane Lian Sheng, Shanjiao Village, Tsao-Tun Township,
Nantou County, Taiwan, 54264, R.O.C.
Tel. +886-49-2312992


Thank you for your reply. In fact, I am aware of the remote empowerment.
One thing still unclear for me whether I must face the direction of rising sun directly outdoor or I may face east / direction of rising sun inside of my house/ indoor. 
After that remote empowerment, may I ask for guidance from you regarding cultivation. Thank you.


In recent speech, GM Lu shared how to welcome Fortune Deity into your house.
AND also lots of questions that sentient minds can come up with as hindrances to themselves! 

The above is doubtful of facing East or the Rising Sun, indoor or outdoor! 

Dear all, sincerity is from One's heart! 
Whenever you can sincerely put your body speech mind to take refuge, it really is all that matters! 

Cheers all.

Om Guru Lian Sheng Siddhi Hom
Lama Lotuschef
