It is not an entertainment to increase your ignorance.” During the performances, the crowd had a great time, singing out the lyrics with the volunteers, and taking part in reciting Great Compassion Mantra with joining both of their hands together.

The Guan Yin Citta Buddhist Practice Center in Cambodia is located at its capital city of Phnom Penh. The center has provided a spiritual home for the people of Cambodia, and consists of predominantly believers of Buddhism to find out their inner strength and true self with the purification of minds through the systematic Buddhist practices of the Guanyin Citta Dharma Door. As the founder of Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu has devoted himself fully in transforming people’s lives and to carry out Guan Yin Bodhisattva’s mission to help people alleviate from suffering. Through his radio programs at 2OR Australia Oriental Radio (2OR) and books, he advocates “to ceasing from evil, to do only good, and to purify the mind”. His inspiring teachings and earnest practice have won him many awards, accolades and respect from Buddhist practitioners around the world.

Although the Guanyin Citta Buddhist Practice Center in Cambodia has not been established for a very long time, with the guidance of the world-renowned Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu, Guan Yin Citta Buddhist Practice in Cambodia has held a successful Life Liberation and Free Vegetarian Tasting Event in Cambodia’s capital, Phnom Penh.

Before the event, many volunteers have worked diligently to prepare for the upcoming Life Liberation and Vegetarian event. As with the saying, “Many hands make light work”, the spirit of unity and collaboration of many volunteers have resulted in the smooth planning and flowing of the actual event. During the preparation, it can be seen that all the volunteers were very happy and joyful in carrying out their tasks and this has translated into an event which was filled with an atmosphere that was full of love and compassion.

It was a beautiful morning with a clear blue sky, and many people have gathered at the pier before they set out to complete this noble activity of Life Liberation. The Life Liberation, which is one of the “Three Golden Practices” of Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, is to release animals, especially those that are destined to be slaughtered. There are also immeasurable merits that can be derived from the practice of life liberation as it prevents pain and suffering from being inflicted on the animals as well as promotes generosity and compassion within us. Although it may be difficult for non-believers to fathom, there were countless documented benefits of life liberation to the people who performed the kind act ranging from attaining longevity and health, resolving interpersonal conflicts, being free from violence or disasters to fulfilling the wishes of the people who performed the life liberation. Many fish were released on that day, and it can be seen that the fish were jumping with joy and gratitude as they embraced their newfound freedom.

Another highlight followed the life liberation event for the day was a free vegetarian event. This free vegetarian event was attended by hundreds of people from all walks of life. There were many delicious and mouth watering vegetarian dishes that were prepared by the volunteers.

Before the start of the free vegetarian event, the guests were warmly welcomed by the host. There were other programs throughout the event which included the sharing of the benefits of adopting a full vegetarian diet into our daily lives as well as sharing of testimonials by the practitioners of Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door.

The guests were immersed in an emotional roller coaster when some of the practitioners have shared about the challenges and adversities that they were facing before they found Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door. They talked about how their lives have been transformed through the diligent application of the “Three Golden Practices” of Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, that is, reciting Buddhist sutras, practicing life liberation and making vows, that. Buddhist books and materials were handed out thoughout the event, and many people have also taken the opportunity to ask questions and to seek a deeper understanding of the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door practices.

The fine vegetarian cuisines served on that day received great feedback from the guests and made them more aware and conscious that vegetarian food can indeed provide a healthy meatless alternative to meals without the need to inflict pain and suffering to animals.

All in all, the life liberation and free vegetarian event in Cambodia was a success. Hopefully, with the new knowledge and wisdom gained from the event, many more people in Cambodia will make the right decision to start adopting a new lifestyle which is inclusive of the healthy and compassionate vegetarian diet as well as to continue seeking deeper knowledge and understanding about Buddhism to improve their health and well-being.

Free Vegetarian Event brought by Guan Yin Citta Sitiawan in Malaysia brings new ideas for better life

20190629-Veggie-GuanYinCitta-Sitiawan3

On June 29, 2019, Guan Yin Citta Buddhist Association of Malaysia successfully put on another recurring free vegetarian tasting event in Sitiawan. It offers free entry to the public and brings the local community together for education, health and healing. This veg-friendly event creates memorable experiences for attendees and promotes Master Jun Hong Lu’s Buddhist teachings and all aspects of the vegetarian lifestyle.

As the founder of Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu has been dedicated to promoting core values of Buddhism and traditional Chinese culture. He’s been continuously giving Dharma Talks worldwide to spread Buddhist methods for better life. The organizer of the event, Guan Yin Citta Buddhist Association of Malaysian, has successfully organized dozens of large scale free vegetarian tasting events across the country, aiming to spread the message of compassion and increase people’s understanding about Master Jun Hong Lu’s Buddhist teachings.

It’s estimated that over 1,000 families, friends, and neighbors attended the event. The free vegetarian tasting event featured delicious food and incredible performances brought by volunteers from Guan Yin Citta Malaysia. Hundreds of volunteers from different places of Malaysia worked hard day and night to prepare food and set up the venue.

They care about every single detail to make the event filled with love and compassion.

The event consists of several sessions, including video-clip viewing, performances, and lucky draws.

As the third largest city in Malaysia, Ipoh is known for its huge number of interesting attractions and rich history. On June 15, 2019, a large free vegetarian tasting event took place at the Ipoh PHL Convention Center. The vegetarian event attracted over 1600 attendees and featured various types of vegetarian food. It provides a welcoming environment in which to explore a wide variety of delicious, healthy, and plant-based foods that are good for people and friendly to the environment. The event was held and organized by the Guan Yin Citta Buddhist Association of Malaysian. It is also part of the series free vegetarian tasting events across the country to promote Vegetarianism and the core values of Buddhism.

This event consists of incredible sessions of vegetarian food tasting, video watching, and performances by volunteers from Guan Yin Citta. The dazzling and delicious vegetarian food not only satisfied people’s appetite, but also changed some of their opinions towards vegetarian diet. In the meantime, the attendees watched amazing video clips from Master Jun Hong Lu’s Dharma Talks and Totem Inquiries. These fascinating Totem cases revealed the real existence of Karma and the Law of Cause and Effect, which educated the attendees and made them realize that there is another Buddhist way to live their lives.

Master Jun Hong Lu, the founder of Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, is a strong advocate of vegetarian diet, not only because it can benefit people’s health and earth, but also it is one of the main methods to cultivate compassion and refrain from killing. Master Jun Hong Lu has ever said, “Compassion will resolve all your troubles. When you are annoying someone, or you’re having something upset, it is mainly because you have not forgiven others. If you let go of the resentment and forgive others, you will open yourselves up to practicing compassion and love. Compassionate people have a level of inner courage to forgive others, which leads to resolving afflictions and trouble. “In order to achieve peace and social harmony in the world, restore the balance of mind, let us start it with the change of our diet, cultivate compassion and perform more giving.

The success of the event relied on over 400 volunteers from different places of Malaysia, including Sarawak Kuching, Sibu;, Kuala Lumpur, Klang, Puchong, Johor Bahru, Muar, Kluang, Yongping, Segamat, Selangor Seremban and Malacca. All the volunteers involved in the event of their own free will and for no financial remuneration. They worked wholeheartedly with true passion and enthusiasm. Many local people expressed their appreciation for the invaluable opportunity to learn Buddhism and experience vegetarian food culture. They look forward to attending the event again in the coming months.
