Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu (Master Lu), spiritual teacher of millions of Chinese; world peace ambassadors; Australian Justice of the Peace; held a Public Dharma Talk at the Brisbane City Hall on June 17, 2019. The four-hour event had attached participates of more than 5,000 from nearly 20 countries and regions including the United States, Canada, Hungary, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Indonesia, Japan, China, New Zealand and Australia. Members of the Queensland Parliament and the representatives of the Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Minister for Police, as well as the representative of the Lord Mayor of Brisbane City Council gave opening remarks at the event. They commended Master Lu for his outstanding contributions to world peace, human well-being and the vibrant multicultural society in Australia through the promotion of Buddhist education.

During Master Lu’s visit in Brisbane, he also held “Blessing Ceremony” (blessing of Buddhist statues and articles) and “World Buddha Friends Meetings”, where a more than 2,000 Buddhist friends from all over the world reunited. Under Buddha light Buddhist friends was in immense joy while and listening to Master Lu’s Buddhist teaching.

Through several historical stories Master Lu told Buddhist friends that people should not think too highly of themselves. The value of another person should not be determined by ourselves. Calm and modest, is the most important value of a person. If we want to survive in this world safely, we must always remember that when it’s time to lower our head, we must bow.

Buddhist practitioners should not regard themselves as too important. In fact, it is a type of cultivation, a kind of manners, a noble realm, and an ultimate mindset. The maturity of the mind is the indifference of the mind. Using the Bodhisattva’s mentality; be humble to others, grateful for everything that others have done; love your parents, love all beings, and love all those around you. This way, your mind will be healthy and be more tolerant. If you have a good attitude, you will be content, and you will be happy. By using Bodhisattva’s mentality when dealing with life, can assist yourself to be free. Our society will become more harmonious, and the world will become more peaceful.

Buddhists practitioners must understand in our cultivation, the level of values you hold will determine the stage you reach when you leave this world. Buddhist practitioners should approach things with Buddha’s and Bodhisattva’s mentality; only do good deeds and be kind to others and stay away from all evils; you’ll be able to abandon the troubles of the world. Learn to let go, use wisdom to eliminate troubles, and you heart will be content. Using Buddha’s nature, see the world as always; contentment, kindness, compassion and hopeful.”

The Totem reading was impressive and exciting as ever. In spite of Master Lu’s physical exhaustion within an hour and a half, he saw more than 20 totems for the 10 practitioners, who’s ticket numbers had been drawn. The goal for Master Lu in preforming Totem is to help everyone understand the cause and effect, understand that their own spirituality. The physical pain is the result of cause and conditions, so that they can understand the universal truth of life and began their path to Buddhist cultivation and change their destiny.

Brisbane’s 2019 Master Lu’s Dhrama Talk successfully concluded, which reflected on the enthusiasm and diligence of the Buddhist practitioners from all over the world.

Public Talk by Master Jun Hong Lu in Singapore

On May 17, 2018, the World Peace Ambassador, the spiritual leader of 10 million followers, Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu, arrived at Singapore and started the 5-day journey of Dharma propagation. A series of public Dharma talks were presented by Master Jun Hong Lu at the Singapore Expo. As an event of great significance, last year’s unparalleled 80,000 people Dharma Talk at Singapore National Stadium is still vivid within the memories of many people. This year, the Dharma Talk at Singapore Expo once again shows the immense appeal of Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door and Buddhism to the public. Over 50,000 Buddhist friends and practitioners attended this gathering and they were from over 30 different countries and regions, including UK, France, Netherlands, USA, Canada, Africa, Mauritius, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macau, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Cambodia, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, etc. All the attendees were bathed in the light of the Buddha and immersed in the joy of Dharma. The 5-day event is a journey towards to self-awakening, an action to inspire compassion, and a window that opens on traditional Chinese culture. It’s also another grand promotion event for Buddhism, followed on the heels of the 30,000 people Dharma Talk in the March of 2018 in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The event was officially kicked off by the grand blessing ceremony held in the evening of May 17, 2018. Without taking a short break after long term travel, Master Jun Hong Lu attended the blessing ceremony and delivered a Dharma Talk for over 10,000 people. Countless Buddhist items, objects as well as porcelain Buddha Statues were blessed that night. These blessed Buddhist objects are then distributed for free to benefit all beings.

In the next day, May 18, 2018,  a grand “World Buddhist Friends Meeting” was held with attendees over 10,000. During the meeting, Master Jun Hong Lu delivered an inspiring speech, in which he mentioned, “When we are in the human realm, it’s essential for us to rely on the power and blessings from Buddha and Bodhisattva. But in the meantime, we should also rely on ourselves. Through the cultivation of mind and modification of bad behaviors, we will be able to dig into our consciousness to get rid of those dangerous forms of attachments, such as houses, cars, children, wife, etc. We are clinging ourselves by the net made out of our own cravings and greed. That is why we are drowning in the dusts of desire and unable to extricate from them. ”

The public Dharma Talk held on May 19, 2018 was a huge success. Over 4,000 volunteers got involved and worked in various departments to service the event, such as Communication Group, Free Distribution Group, Admission Group, Sanitation Group, Medical Group, etc. Everyone’s morale was high and they were giving their best to ensure the success of the event. At 2:30pm in the afternoon, Master Jun Hong Lu walked onto the stage, kindly waving to the crowd. More than 300 Buddhist friends handed over flowers and shook hands with Master Jun Hong Lu. In the following speech, he said, “Greed is the most dangerous emotion for modern people. We always tend to try all kinds of means to get what we want. But when we get it, we are overwhelmed by the fear of losing it. To deal with this wrong perception, it’s important to learn the notion of Impermanence. All exists is impermanent and nothing lasts. This Buddhist insight can help you fight against greed. As a Buddhist practitioner, you should learn to untie the knots in your heart and let go of the past. Cherish what you still have today, and be grateful for all the happiness brought by others around you. Be patient to your friends and endure any hardship, taking a step back, everything is brighter. Let the compassion of Guan Yin Bodhisattva always reside in your heart, and you will resolve all the difficulties and calamities in your life. That is the way in which you can attain the true prajna and happiness. ”

The whole event lasted 4 hours and ended in the immense applause from audience. People joined their hands and bowed their heads at the end in gratitude to both Master Jun Hong Lu and the Dharma. Master Jun Hong Lu slowly walked off the stage waving to the crowd. Many Buddhist friends were burst into tears and calling the name of the master. They were looking forward to another gathering at the beautiful place in the year to come. The Dharma imparted by Master Jun Hong Lu will always be there, deep within the consciousness of every attendee, waiting to arise when the conditions are ripe.
