Guang Huan Mi Zong
Cause and Effect Sutra

Preface

The Cause and Effect Sutra has been spread extensively for a long time. During the Dharma Vanishing Era, it promotes good social orders via educating people to do good deeds and retain merits. It also constitutes positive effects in respect of facilitating a stable society, eliminating evils and improving the self-control mechanism of beings. Should anyone propagate it widely, one’s merits will become immeasurable.

—— Holy Master Ziguang Shang Shi 

Preface

If you want to know the Karma of your previous life,
The present consequences have make you clear demonstration.
If you wish to know the merits of you future life,
The deeds performed in present life have given you the determination;

How can one eliminate one’s Karma hindrances?
Eradicating the roots of the Three Poisons is the answer.
Drugs and medicine cannot cure Karma diseases,
Vexation and pains always drive people to death;

Samadhi Dharma can get rid the roots of sufferings,
Much better than spending millions of money elsewhere;
Nobody can take your place to receive the karma of ages,
Only the one planting the causes can remove the hindrances;

Guang Huan Mi Zong rescues the people in this world,
with its supremacy for disaster eliminated and fortune fostered;
Should you wholeheartedly beseech and convert to its Dharma,
Quick effects highly praised by the masses will be gained.

With the preserving of the Guang Huan Mi Zong Cause and Effect Sutra,
World peace and prosperity for all professions can be obtained;
With the preserving of the Guang Huan Mi Zong Cause and Effect Sutra,
The sufferings of the Karma cause can be finally exempted.

Causes formed during three previous lives will lead to the effects of this life.
Retaining merits will lead to good fortune, high ranking and longevity.
Decorating Buddha statue with gold will benefit oneself;
Building the God of Earth Temple will benefit the descendants.
Never say it is easy to possess merits in this life;
It will never be attained without the cultivation in previous lives.

The retribution of virtuous and sinful deeds provides proof.
Doing good deeds and rescuing lives to retain merits,
Can lead to the exemption from the sufferings in hells.
If you want to change your karma and protect your next three generations,
You have to build the God of Earth Temple in present life.
The Guang Huan Mi Zong Cause and Effect Sutra,
Helps to attain world peace and prosperity of hundreds of professions;
The flame Samadhi of Supreme Dharma that can burn calamity,
Is more effective than spending thousands of money elsewhere.
