  • Summary

The kind of life we will lead has already been arranged. This is due to fixed karma. There is another kind of karma that is stored and will cause something to happen when conditions are right. After initiation, the enlightened Master erases the karma that we had created life after life, but does not erase the fixed karma, because without fixed karma, we cannot live in this world. Therefore, fixed karma cannot and should not be transformed; we have to remain in this world for some time in order to practice spiritually and help the world and sentient beings.

Besides fixed karma, we also create new karma during our time in this world. To be liberated in one lifetime, we have to pay off the new karma immediately. As a result, it becomes difficult for us to bear and pay off the two types of karma together. If we follow Master's instructions and meditate two-and-a-half hours each day, the new karma will be paid off and life will be relatively simple . However, sometimes if we do not meditate, it will affect us physically or mentally.


  1. What are the differences between fixed karma, karma and new karma? Is it true that fixed karma cannot be transformed?
  2. Why did the disciples of Shakyamuni Buddha attain sainthood immediately after listening to His lectures or receiving Dharma transmissions?
  3. How does a Master erase his or her disciples’ fixed karma? Will their karma be transformed if they forsake the world and become monks or nuns?
  4. Why do spiritual practitioners seem to have more karma than ordinary people? How can we resolve adversity in our life?
  5. Despite having great magical power, Maudgalyayana was still murdered. Was this a result of fixed karma or new karma? While the physical body can be destroyed, can magical power remain forever?
  6. Is illness also a kind of blessing? Why doesn’t Master permit Her disciples to treat diseases with magic?
  7. Do Quan Yin practitioners also have magical power? What is the highest magic and selfless magic?
  8. How can a Quan Yin practitioner benefit the people around him and the world? Please listen to Master’s revelation of the incredible power of spiritual practitioners.
  9. What does it mean to “always accommodate the needs of sentient beings”? The power received and the effect from seeing a Master is not the same for everyone. How does a Master reflect our inner spirit?
