Arrivals of the Gods in the Temple of TAO
 

The TEN ADMONITIONS are written by LAO MU in the temple of TAO with the aim to save this world by revealing the Truth and explaining the future in detail.

 
LAO MU on March 24 in the 78th year of Republic of China wrote a foreword as follows:
 
"All beings in the world, listen to LAO MU carefully;
Point to your Right Portal, your two windows can be cleared;
Hold on to your Right Portal, your two eyes will be calmed;
Open the Right Portal, shine the eyes.
All beings in the world, look at LAO MU, my light;
LAO MU, my light is infinitely bright.
Concentrate on your Right Portal,
You can get rid of the human nature,
Bring out the true nature,
And reveal your divine wisdom.
Unite the true self and life into one
You’ll realize the mystic nature of the Right Portal."
 
The ‘Right Portal’ is also known as the divine eye, the third eye, the ‘First Heavenly Treasure’ or where the soul resides in the context of TAO of Heaven.
 
I sincerely beg for forgiveness from LAO MU to allow me to write a summary of the Ten Admonitions because I knew this summary would not be able to convey the full and actual intention of the admonitions. The actual admonitions in Mandarin are so deep that to explain itself needed a TAO dictionary to do so. I wish to put it in summary to convey certain messages because it is the gem and treasure of TAO that nobody can find it anywhere and for those who are able to read and understand the original writing, I considered them to be very fortunate. It is the most valuable Treasure from Heaven to understand the Truth of life and its purpose. It explained the beginning and the end to come about this world and may I summarize in simple English the main ingredients of each admonition in the shortest summary for the benefits of the readers.
 
Thank you.

Introduction of the Summary
 
Before LAO MU descended from Heaven to deliver the admonitions, millions of Heavenly Beings descended first, paid respect to LAO MU and then SHE finally came. 
  
In sequence of order, Holy Beings after Holy Beings manifested in the temple of TAO before the altar, bowed and paid homage to LAO MU as follows:
 
All the Immortals, Buddhas, Saints and Deities in all Heavens:
They paid homage and wrote,
‘Gentle breeze lightly greet our faces
Halcyon clouds linger in our full embraces
Clusters of colorful clouds each shines in golden glaze
Immortals and Buddhas slowly descend from the Heaven Palace.’
All should remain solemn, wait for LAO MU’s admonitions.
 
Four Great Heaven Kings leading the 28 Constellations, the Thunder Department, the Wind Department, the Tiger Department and the Dragon Department.
They paid homage and wrote,
‘Wars break out in four locations
Catastrophes strike in continuation
The merciful Heaven has pity on mankind
Tien-Tao is once again descended to the world.
We enter the Altar, bow and pay homage to LAO MU
 
Eight Great Guards with the Heavenly bodies.
They paid homage and wrote,
‘Eight Trigrams and Nine Regions reveal the time to retrieve all is near
All in this world should board the Dharma Ferry
Everyone must restore his True Self
For the Heavenly body is everlasting and live without worries.’
LAO MU departing from the Pure Land of the West
We bow and pay homage to LAO MU
 
Nan-Ji Shou-Xing (God of Longevity) leading the Eight Immortals
He paid homage and wrote,
‘I took a nap at the South Heaven Gate
And I lost count of months and years
Suddenly I smell the aroma of incense
I open my eyes and roll over to get up
Holding my cane I mount on my deer
With my white crane following behind
My back is crooked and my waist bent
Gray hair on my head shines like silver needles’
LAO MU descending to the Eastern Earth
We bow and pay homage to LAO MU.
 
Wan-Xian Pu-Sa (A title of an Immortal) leading all Immortals
They paid homage and wrote,
‘Thousands of religions flourish
Some are heresies
Some are strange and occult
Some burn amulets and refine cinnabars
Varieties are abundant
Immortals, Buddhas, Deities and Saints
The four Nobles and the Five Domains
All descend to gather in the Eastern Earth
Awaiting the amassment of souls by Three Buddhas
Meanwhile Tien-Tao is spread for the last time
Bodhi is the origin which one must awaken to
The Golden Thread was dropped
To save the Nine Two ( millions of pure souls )
So they can return to the origin
All Buddha Nature must board the Dharma Ferry
Bodhisattvas and Buddhas are boundless
The mystic Truth is pure
Accumulate merits in the mortal world
And must delay no more
Together all may attain Immortality.’
LAO MU descending to the Altar
We bow and pay homage to LAO MU
 
Yuan-Zhang Mao-Tian ( Chief Examiner of the Three Heavens )
He paid homage and wrote,
‘Administrating examinations in the east and then in the west
Going back and forth between the south and the north
I test your wisdom to see who are Sages and who are fools
Testing the hearts I distinguish the sincere from the hypocritical
Without a truly determined will
You cannot return to the Void ( Heaven )
All my good brothers gathered in the court-yard
Do not be lost and ignorant
Hurry! Hurry! Crush ignorance and desires
Respect the order between seniors and juniors
Reestablish the order of human relations
With Tao and virtues pervading the East and the West’

Nan-Ping Ji-Gong ( Master JiGong)
He paid homage and wrote,
‘I am very anxious and extremely impatient

For I see the time has come
How can I report my mission to LAO MU?’
LAO MU descending to the Altar

Tai-Shang Lao-Jun ( Lao Tze )
He paid homage and wrote,

Hurriedly seek the Enlightened Teacher to return to the Root’

I bow and pay homage to LAO MU
 
Xi-Tien Ru-Lai ( Sakyamuni Buddha )

Can one reach the mystic place of utmost perfection
Cleansing all emotions and desires can one reflect the Truth fully

And understanding its mysterious manifestation can one know where to rest
Following the practice of being set
Being tranquil, revealing the True Nature
And being pure can one see the origin.’
LAO MU coming to the Altar
I bow and pay homage to LAO MU
 
Ru-Tong Jin-Gong ( Maitreya Buddha )
He paid homage and wrote,
‘The White Yang’ flag suspends in the air
White flowers drift all over the sky
‘The White Yang’ Boulevard leads to the Origin
Dress and deport properly
Teaching all countries so all gather in China

Together my disciples and I undertake the mission of amassing souls"

I am
LAO MU, GOD, Lord of Wu-Ji,
Lord of all beings
Leading all Buddhas
LAO MU, I come to meet My royal children
So stand firm
My children
Listen carefully to My concerns
LAO MU, I am going to admonish now to warn My lost children
The Three Powers rest shortly, and
LAO MU, I will write again. First
LAO MU, I will write the foreword
Then in detail.
 
LAO MU wrote three forewords before she started writing the Ten Admonitions.
The forewords urged her children to be selfless and devote to GOD. The planet Earth is in dire danger where sky would crumbles and earth cracks and beings will be destroyed.
It is like the revelation in the Bible and described as the Final Catastrophe in TAO.
 
The Admonitions in summary begin..
