A thousand eyes observe and a thousand hands reach out.
To direct living beings who are confused at the crossroads.

Compassion of the Venerable Master Hua

I urge everyone to stop having abortions! Think about it, if living beings become resentful spirits even before they are born, with these vengeful little ghosts of aborted fetuses everywhere, how can the society be peaceful?

Those who Kill will Repay with Life; Those who Owe Money will Repay with Money.

──The Venerable Master Hsuan Hua

Why do people get strange diseases nowadays? These diseases come from the act of killing.

Given the prevalence of abortion nowadays, these little ghosts of unborn babies are everywhere, outnumbering the old ghosts in the world. Some people don’t know why they are sick. Actually, they are sick because they have caused too much animosities and resentments. For example, in most cases, people have cancer because they have taken many lives. Being unable to appease the animosities from living beings they have killed, these individuals end up with cancer....
