“My wife introduced me to Buddhism after she began following the teachings of Master Lu, the Guan Yin Citta Dharma Door. This modern straightforward Buddhism now has over 10 million followers in 50 countries and it’s tenets follow the path of peace, compassion, love and respect for all living things. Along with millions of others I started to chant every day as my daily recitation or homework, a minimum number of different prayers.these are written in Chinese, which was difficult for me at first. Once I understood the pinyin translation, I was able to chant at a good speed and increase the amount.I started at kindergarten level and with perseverance got myself to university. Regular chanting makes the whole process so easy that everyone can do it，so don’t get put off at the beginning. I also recite little houses which are a more powerful version of daily homework.These are specifically performed to repay our karmic debts from our past and benefit ourselves, family and friends.
We can all make time for chanting in our busy lives, with the same importance we give to eating and sleeping. The more we chant the more we gain as we pay off more karmic debts and make a better life for ourselves, by then blessings will come more naturally. I have attended several of Master Lu’s seminars and he has the gift of helping people on the spot in a wonderfully natural way . Practicing Buddhism has helped me cope better with life’s obstacles and have a more positive outlook, especially earlier this year when my mother passed away.I was strong enough to help my family get through a very difficult and stressful time. Following the teachings of Master Lu and his direct modern approach has made me a better ,more positive person . I am deeply grateful to the selfless and honourable Master Lu for his dedication in preaching the Dharma and his blessings. ”
“For most of my life, I have always thought that happiness was only achieved by having wealth, fame or status. By practicing Buddhism, I now know that true happiness from the heart can only be experienced by giving happiness to others first. I cherish the simple things in life and I’m a better person inside and out, which is a wealth beyond my dreams.”

“It was such a wonderful collaboration with the UK Guan Yin Citta Buddhist Charity Foundation to present a vegetarian feast to guests and our members. We never knew vegetarian could be so tasty and diverse, our members thoroughly enjoyed the food! The volunteers from the UK Guan Yin Citta Buddhist Charity Foundation were very friendly and worked tirelessly. We admire their indefatigability and dedication to their Charity. We look forward to seeing them again in the future!”
