By following the five ‘golden Buddhist practices’ of Guan Yin Citta–reciting Buddhist sutras, practising life liberation, making vows, repenting of wrongdoings and studying Buddhism in Plain Terms– we can accumulate merits, which in turn can be used to reduce our karmic debts and clear karmic obstacles on our life’s journey.
Buddhist scriptures (sutras) are the sayings of the Buddha.
When reciting them, you will benefit from the blessings of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
Recitation will not only help eliminate your negative karma; it will also bring strength, wisdom and inner peace, so that you can overcome all kinds of obstacles.
And it does not cost a cent. All it requires is persistence and wholehearted sincerity.

Life liberation, or the release of animals, especially those in grave danger of being killed, is a popular practice performed by all schools of Buddhism. Setting animals free helps us cultivate compassion towards all beings, and deepens our understanding that we are all interdependent. It also enhances our generosity.
As many pains and illnesses that we suffer come from the karma of killing, the boundless merits derived from life liberation are particularly relevant to modern people: it helps us attain longevity and health, resolve interpersonal conflicts, be free from violence and disasters, and fulfil our wishes.
When you make a vow, you will be motivated to fulfil your vow. You become willing to devote yourself to that goal. The vow is, in fact, very strong energy; it can overcome countless obstacles. This is especially true when you make a vow out of compassion. Seeing the suffering and hearing the cries of sentient beings, Bodhisattvas bring forth immense compassion and vow to benefit all sentient beings.
