‧Sheng-yen Lu‧

    In Southeast Asia, a woman in her fifties attended group practices at a True Buddha School local chapter through the introduction of friends. Soon she took refuge in Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng- yen Lu.
    This woman had a chronic illness.
    This is her story. When she was in her twenties, she had a slender figure and angelic features. Her beauty charmed everyone. A bully from her village fell in love with her. This bully was also a sociopath who had engaged in all kinds of criminal activities: sexually assaulting several women, intimidating and taking money from others, leading a gang which exacted protection fees, and abetting murders.
    This beautiful girl did not want to be friends with the bully. She refused his courtship. When he asked her for dates, she would find excuses to decline.
    Flying into a rage, the bully threatened her, “Just wait and see, you are going to regret this!”
    She begged, “Don’t kill me.”
    The bully said, “I will not kill you. I will make you so miserable that you wish you were dead. That will really be fun!”
    She asked, “Are you going to break my arms and legs?”
    The bully said, “No. Don’t you know that my father is a famous voodoo magician?”
    After that conversation, the beautiful girl and the bully went their separate ways.
    But, she later came down with a “headache syndrome.” This was no ordinary headache. The splitting pain was so excruciating that she felt as if her head were being chopped and she had fainted on the ground.
    The young lady sought medical treatment, but no one could figure out what was wrong.
    She also sought voodoo masters to break the black magic, all to no avail. Instead she developed severe insomnia.
    Due to the headache syndrome, the young lady lost her beauty as her face became distorted. Her body became thickened and coarse from over consumption of pain killers. This headache syndrome had been torturing her for thirty years.
    After taking refuge, she started crying and whining to Padmakumara at the shrine daily.
    One day, she had a dream. Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng-yen Lu appeared to tell her, “Go and find Grand Master Lu to give you a mo-ding.”
