They Want Blessing! 他们要加持!

A group of tag-along came to attend a recent event.
They were refused entry.
After the event, their friends that attended the event said that their friends that came along Want Blessing!
The excuse these tag-alongs gave were they decided to come at the last minute!
In this era, they can always call before setting out and not assume that they will automatically be granted entry!
Their lack of respect for the host and reverend conducting event is obvious and demanding blessing from One that they don't respect is really too much.

As GM Lu said: If you perceive me as a mortal, you get a mortal's blessing.
If you perceive me as a Buddha, then you get a Buddha's blessing.

In another recent event, two ladies also gate-crashed and lotus offering for the attending were short of two. They were friends of our host and knew that they need to register in order to attend the event.

People that gate crash private events at private premises really have no respect for the Host of the event and also Buddha Dharma.

It is far better that you do not attend and create debts for Self.
Lying and cheating are major precepts and not to be breached.

Think you can get free blessing by gate crashing?
