Praise to Jesus of Compassionate Tolerance

Yutang Lin

As incarnation of Avalokitesvara granted me a robe white,
With Chinese words from Sutras written all over its lining.
Compassionate tolerance sustains practitioners among the worldly;
Often think of his loneliness when enduring the crucifixion.


Guru Chen taught that Jesus was an incarnation of Avalokitesvara. Every Christmas and Easter we have performed fire pujas to the five saints of Christianity (Holy Ghost, Holy Father, Holy Mother, Jesus and the apostles) without fail since the Christmas of 1972. Several times I saw Jesus in dreams. Once he granted me a white robe with Chinese words from Sutras written all over its lining. As one walks on the path to Enlightenment it is inevitable to encounter all sorts of trials and tribulations. Often I would think of Jesus?crucifixion as a model of endurance. Compassionate tolerance refers to the willing endurance that is born of compassion to accept suffering for all.
