On 28 November 2019, volunteers from the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door, Singapore Branch and the Cambodian Branch visited the Children’s Hospital of Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and made a charitable donation on behalf of the Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu. The hospital provides free medical care to children in Cambodia and treats between 1,500 to 2,000 critically ill children each day.

In the afternoon, the volunteers also visited the Future Light Orphanage in Phnom Penh. The orphanage is home to more than 60 children. The children’s education is funded by the orphanage up to the completion of High school. The volunteers represented the Buddhist teacher Jun Hong Lu and donated living essentials to the Orphanage, although it was only a small act of kindness, the children were very happy. Together with the volunteers, they said “gratitude to Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Grandpa Lu”.

The day trip was, although very brief, the volunteers felt deeply emotional and reminded them of their task of bringing the Buddhist teaching to help relieve more people who are in need.

On 29 May 2018, Ambassador for World Peace Master Jun Hong Lu was awarded several honours in the House of Lords, UK, marking another milestone for the spiritual teacher of 10 million followers.

In the afternoon, the University of West Scotland appointed Master Lu the lecturer’s position in appreciation for Master Lu’s excellence in the field of education, religion and philosophy on the world stage.

Master Lu was presented with two awards in the House of Lords at 6 pm in recognition of his outstanding contribution to the harmonious and peaceful exchange between religions in many countries around the world. He was honoured by a member of the House of Lords with the title “International Ambassador for Religious Peace”. In addition, in recognition of his outstanding contribution to charitable work and donations to improve the well-being of children and people affected by mental illness in many countries of our world today, Master Lu was honoured with the title “Outstanding International Ambassador for Philanthropy” by the Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust, a non-profit organisation.

The Commonwealth Charity Forum was held in the House of Lords, UK. This event brought dignitaries from around the world together. The Forum demonstrates Master Jun Hong Lu’s outstanding contribution to peace and charitable work in the international community and the honours and awards he received over the years.

Baroness Cox, the recipient of the International Mother Teresa award, commended Master Lu’s valuable contribution to world peace. She said that the world is full of war and massacre, leaving thousands of people homeless and turning them into refugees suffering from diseases. With profound compassion, Master Lu has saved not only the suffering of humanity, but also helped spread the spirit of compassion to over 30 countries and regions around the world, purifying and sanctifying the hearts of many.

Former Minister for Foreign Affairs of Turkey Yasar Yakis was among the 80,000 people participating in Master Lu’s Public Talk held in Singapore, witnessing the touching scenes in amazement. He commended Master Lu’s selfless devotion and compassion, adding he held Master Lu in very high regard.

Alfred Heer MP of Switzerland, Vice President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, said Master Lu has been trying to transform the world for the better with love and compassion. Love is universal and reciprocal. This is especially true in a colourful world filled with different cultures. He is deeply moved by Master Lu’s compassion, which has influenced and changed his perspective on life. He honours Master Lu for his ongoing dedication to promoting peace.

Master Lu said he was dedicated to spreading the culture of peace on his mission to spread Buddhism all over the world. As the founder of Guan Yin Citta Dharma door, Master Lu has 10 million followers and over 30,000 disciples worldwide. It currently has over 100 practice centres and charities in more than 30 countries and regions. This is attributed to the Chinese people’s wisdom and the depth of Buddhism. He hopes many more people can also spread the message of compassion and underline the importance of charitable works. He reiterates that it is his lifelong aspiration to work for world peace and devote all his life to the spread of Dharma and world peace.

On June 23, 2018, a crowd of 10 thousand people attended the “Ricetta Milano” lunch at the Milano Sempione Park in Milan, Italy. As part of the “Together Without Walls” event, the multi-ethnic lunch was held with a 2.5km long table. Many immigrant associations and local organizations attended this event and prepared a wide variety of food for free tasting. It aims to boost cultural exchange and strengthen community ties. The city mayor, Giuseppe Sala, said, “I am very happy to see so many Chinese attending this gathering. Chinese food is my favorite. Milan is my motherland and I hope that this is also your motherland.”

As one of the most influential local organizations in Milan, Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door Buddhist Association of Italy was invited to attend this event. Volunteers from Guan Yin Citta brought dozens of delicious vegetarian dishes and distributed free to public. With a lot of heart and soul put into the promotion of Vegetarianism, the volunteers from Guan Yin Citta spent three days and two nights on the food preparation. Despite the hard work, everyone felt happy and satisfied to be able to prepare meals for so many people. One of the volunteers said, “I enjoyed the opportunity to put my time to good use. The volunteering experiences teach me to become more motivated and responsible, and I believe these experiences help a great deal in my Buddhist practice of giving which has been especially emphasized by Master Jun Hong Lu multiple times. “

As the world’s renowned Buddhist Master, Jun Hong Lu has been dedicating to the promotion of Buddhism and Chinese Culture. His Dharma Talks and Buddhism in Plain Terms teach us that giving is one of the essential preliminary steps of Buddhist practice. It is of prime importance in the mental purification. And it is the best weapon against greed. All the volunteers and Buddhist practitioners from Guan Yin Citta are following Master Jun Hong Lu’s teachings, volunteering their time and energy to give back to communities.

The dazzling vegetarian food attracted many attendees’ interests. The volunteers were busily introducing the benefits of vegetarianism to the people, ranging from increased energy, more desirable cholesterol levels, and more. Aside from these vital personal attributes, a lifestyle of non-animal ingredients has a very favorable impact on the environment. One of the attendees said, “I am incredibly impressed by young volunteers from your chapter who go vegetarian despite all of the barriers to doing so. The food you provided is delicious and I picked up so much health information relative to the vegetarian diet. Thank you so much!”

On May 6, 2018, the Guan Yin Citta Hall in Denmark was lively and bustling with people coming for the “Free Vegetarian Food Tasting Event”. Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door Buddhist Association in Denmark hosted the event. It aims to raise people’s awareness of the importance of vegetarianism and the necessity of practicing Buddhism. Around 100 people joined the gathering. They were not only amazed at the dazzling food, but also inspired by the stories shared.

Started with the introduction of the health benefits of vegetarian, the event was processed with multiple sessions. From video watching, attendees learned that Buddhist Master Jun Hong Lu is a well-known leader of the Chinese community. He travels around the world to teach traditional Chinese culture and Buddhism, and he helps people without material returns.

In the sharing session, three Buddhist friends told their stories about how to alleviate from pain and suffering. One of the friends said, “Before I started learning Buddhism, I have suffered severe headaches for decades. It’s so debilitating and downright awful that every time when it comes, l felt like hell. The doctors don’t know exactly what causes the migraines. At that time, I was so desperate and tried every method I could use to get rid of the pain, but they all failed. When I learned that reciting Buddhist scriptures could help me release the suffering, I immediately started to do it. Surprisingly, after a period of practice, the headache is gone. The practice is really effective and healed my body from the inside out. I’m so grateful to Guan Yin Bodhisattva, to Master Jun Hong Lu and to all the brothers who helped me.” After that, another cardiologist from Sweden explained why people should be vegetarian from a medical point of view. A postdoctoral fellow at the Technical University of Denmark shared his 6 years experiences in vegetarian diet.

In addition to the fantastic sharing, the diversified cuisine amazed everyone and satisfied their stomach. A cooking demonstration also showed people how easy and fast a vegetarian meal could be made without compromising the nutrition and taste. Some volunteers were teaching guests how to read the Heart Suture, one of the most important Buddhist scriptures in the practice.

Among the attendees, there were some of the influential leaders from the local organizations, including the Chairman, the Vice Chairman and the Honorary Chairman of the Danish Chinese Association, President of the Chinese School, Secretary General of the Danish-Chinese Friendship Association, and the President of the Danish Shanghai Friendship Association.
