3. Seeing ''Padmakumara'' in Person
|Xie Achun, the mother of Lan Suzhu and mother-in-law of Xu Hongchun, was the grandmother of ''Thubten Siddhi'' Rinpoche.
She took refuge in Master Lu and had single-minded sincerity (single-minded sincerity was of the utmost importance.)
She chanted Guru Master's heart mantra over a hundred million times.
One day, she met Padmakumara who appeared before her, radiating five-colored lights, and told her, ''I will bring you back to Maha Twin Lotus Ponds!''
Xie Achun agreed, ''Yes, I will get my luggage ready.''
She soon realized that: getting her luggage ready? Worldly luggage is useless once she returned to the Buddha pure land of Maha Twin Lotus Ponds.
She smiled beamingly, ''No need to prepare anything!''
Xie Achun was not reluctant to leave the world.
Instead, she asked often,
''How come he has not come yet to take me back?''
She was anxious,
''It has been several months already, why still no news?''
She even told Master Lu,
''I cannot wait any longer!''
Then, she saw Padmakumara a second time.
Padmakumara instructed her,
''I will take you there during a ceremony, one that is presided over by myself. I will deliver you.''
She passed the words to Lan Suzhu.
But Lan Suzhu disbelieved it,
''How could it be possible? Master Lu conducts a homa ceremony at 3:00 PM every Saturday. Each ceremony is about three hours long from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM. How would it be possible to deliver you just as it was said?''
Xie Achun was resolute,
''Well, Padmakumara indeed said that I would be delivered during a ceremony.''
Lan Suzhu replied,
''Then you must just pray to Buddhas and Bodhisattvas more!''
On January 11, 2014, a Padmasambhava Homa Ceremony was held in Taiwan Lei Tsang Temple.
Xie Achun followed her family to attend the ceremony.
The ceremony progressed as planned.
The ''Fire offering'' was first.
Master Lu then gave a ''dharma talk.''
It was followed by an ''empowerment.''
Xie Achun also participated in the empowerment. Everything went as usual. The only thing was that, after the empowerment, Xie Achun dozed off, and kept sleeping.
Xu Hongchun, mentioned to me,
''Xie Achun has been in a trance for a while now''
I said, ''It is time!''
It was time for me to bless devotees by laying my hand on top of their heads, I walked to Xie Achun and touched her head.
Her head was still warm. I said,
''Her head is still warm. It is very good! It is very good!''
I also touched her face.
The family invited Dr. Lee Jialin (also a disciple) to take her pulse. Dr. Lee announced,
''She has no more heart beat.''
I honestly tell my holy disciples:
Padmakumara is truly real. His manifestation is omnipresent. He radiates over dharma realms in ten directions.
Padmakumara instructed that Xie Achun would be delivered during a ceremony. She indeed was delivered during a ceremony.
It was precisely accurate.
On top of that, she died of no illness! It was the same as dying in a seated posture.
