        Preface : Spiritual Conviction


             This article is written for disciples who have just taken refuge and have begun their initial practice of the True Buddha Tantra.

         Let me say this to you in all honesty. As an enlightened practitioner, I have truly visited the Maha Twin Lotus Ponds and have seen my identity in my past life as Padmakumara himself.

      The True Buddha Tantra really is an effective practice that brings tangible results. Besides helping you gain better health and longevity, attracting good fortune and fostering the growth of blessings and wisdom, it also allows you to spontaneously activate the four bodies or kayas, express the five wisdoms, manifest the Rainbow Light Body and attain supreme bodhi or enlightenment.

        As a novice, it is important that you have faith in the Root Guru, the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. This is the very heart of your spiritual conviction.

        Needless to say, it takes considerable practice in the cultivation of the True Buddha Tantra before you can attain fruition. Do not give up upon meeting slight setbacks. The True Buddha Tantra is aimed at freeing you from your defilements, helping you gain mastery over life and death and become enlightened. To attain these goals, you must remain firm in your spiritual conviction.

        In this world, there is one person whose spiritual convictionis always firm, and that person is myself, Living Buddha Lian-sheng, Sheng-Yen Lu. I shall never lose my spiritual conviction.

        I have faced mountains of disasters in my life. Anyone else in my shoes would have long given up their practice due to these setbacks. The obstacles placed before me have seemed endless, one following after another, and yet my spiritual will has become tempered and sure instead of fading. If Iam not a tathagata, then who is? I have long taken on the role of the Thus Come One.

        Let me say this to you: if I have not given up despite all the obstacles I’ve experienced, how could you give up so easily? Let us put our spiritual conviction to the test and see whose conviction is the strongest!

        I want to share this with all True Buddha practitioners, so that we may encourage each other.
