Rejuvenation of the Aged

By Hui-min Gong


I am a fashion designer. My central nervous system was injured due to a severe impact before. I had been suffering from myocarditis, rheumatoid arthritis, sciatica, protrusion of intervertebral disc, hypomnesia and insomnia. I felt that I could not do anything smoothly. My whole body was injured and I felt dizzy often. I was tired of life, living with sufferings. To reduce my sin, I worked devotedly to do good deeds for the Great Enlightenment Temple in the last two years, but my health got worse. My hair nearly turned white and I could not straighten my back. But in order to eliminate my bad karma, I continued the work.

September 26, 2002 was an unforgettable day for me. Buddha and Bodhisattva appeared to rescue me. It had been gloomy and rainy for many days, but it was sunny on that day. There was no visitor in the temple at noon. Suddenly, I heard somebody knocked at the door. I opened the door and saw a gentleman and two ladies. The gentleman had an extraordinary graceful looking. He led them the way to burn incense and worship the Buddha. A lady looked like Guan Yin Bodhisattva. She smiled at me. That gentleman turned around and talked to me: “Working for a temple is good. Guarding the temple is a kind of merit as well as cleaning the temple. Nonetheless, you should have taken good care your health and image. You have some health problems and need to recover first before you welcome visitors from everywhere. The problem of your heart, nervous system, kidney and rheumatism are quite serious. You are only fifty-six years old, but you look like a seventy years old woman. How can you guide other people? The abbot of this temple has problem too. You have good predestination and can attend the dharma convention held on October 13. The abbot can attend too but that will depend on his own predestination. ”

While I was listening to his advice blurredly, I saw a beam of halo passing through in front of me. He disappeared after the speech. I woke up suddenly and saw no one around me. I rushed to the door and saw those three persons had walked far away. Oh! I must have a dream. Guan Yin Bodhisattva came to rescue me. My eyes were brimming with tears. I knelt down and kowtowed very thankfully. It was strange, but I felt relaxed on that day. I was very happy and looked forward to the date of the preaching convention.

On October 13, I attended the convention punctually. The majestic Mandala brought my thought back to long time ago. On the altar, Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi used different dharma hand gestures and dharma voice to awaken people. I was touched by his teachings and broke into tears.

Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi is a living Buddha. He is the reincarnation of the Buddha in the ancient time. He looked at me with his merciful eyes. He stretched his Buddha hand to cure my sicknesses and dissipated my bad karma with his pestle. Just in two hours, the suffering of health problems was reduced a lot.

A few days later, Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi asked me to look at the mirror. I was shocked; was that me? I looked like ten years younger! Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi replied with a smile: “This is you, 10 years ago. You have restored your youth.” I knelt and bowed to thank but no words could really express my gratefulness.

As I gain the rejuvenation, I will give my life to the Buddha. I will certainly follow the guidance of Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi and do more good deeds to retain merits and remove bad karma. I will also cultivate myself both physically and spiritually for serving sentient beings.
