Auspicious Thunder Roaring@Yutang Lin
Thunder roaring in sunny sky during Guru Chen's fire puja to Green Tara,
The sixteenth Karmapa taught that it's an omen of teaching wide-spreading.
As soon as my recording of my "Amitabha Unification Sadhana" concluded,
Auspicious inspiration of roaring thunder was heard in sunny sky for a while!
On October 19, 2005 sometime after 2 p.m. I was in a guestroom at Kuching Buddhist Society, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia. Upon the request of some Buddhists there I was reciting the Chinese version of my work "Amitabha Unification Sadhana" for recording so that later they may use it during group practice of the Sadhana. At the conclusion of the Sadhana I repeated the title once more to signify its conclusion. As soon as I finished saying the title, immediately there was roaring thunder in the sunny sky, and it roared on for a while. Since I was recording the recitation this auspicious inspiration was also recorded in the tape. Thanks to Buddha's grace that such an auspicious inspiration was granted, and it had certainly encouraged and inspired devotion in those who planned to adopt this Sadhana for regular practice. Here I carefully recorded the inspiration as a token of my sincere gratitude.
