改变命运 Alter Fate – Liao-Fan's Four Lessons (了凡四訓)

Above: I made a gift of this Auspicious Statue of a Buddha who blesses One with many children.
Look carefully at me and the statue.
Both looks alike? :)

Quoting from 2014年農曆新春「蓮生活佛話金馬」与了凡四训 [Chinese/English]:
[--- 哈哈哈!日行一善! To Perform A charitable deed a day!
This message I gave to the brothers that I met on the 1st Feb 2014. ---]


In order to alter One's fate as predicted, like in the story of Korean drama [命运 Fate – 大長今 Dae Jang Geum],
One can use the teachings of Liao-Fan to do so!


Liao-Fan's Four Lessons is a book written by Yuan Liaofan, who was born during the Ming Dynasty, in about 1550, in Wujiang County, Jiangsu Province. Yuan wrote the book to teach his son, Yuan Tian-Chi.
