  • Hmmm... Xin Lin Fa Men is a little known group, and from your recent spate of questions seems problematic. I'm beginning to believe that you are either trying to defame this group or draw attention to it (or both). Is that the case? Commented Nov 10, 2021 at 21:23

Searching for "burning house", one finds this:

Thag16.1:8.1: Having realized the supreme Dhamma,
Thag16.1:8.2: without needing anything in the whole world,
Thag16.1:8.3: one doesn’t grieve at death;
Thag16.1:8.4: for it’s like escaping from a burning house.

Although interesting as a quote, it may seem far from your question. However, if one thinks of burning little houses as an "observance", then the Buddha does indeed speak quite clearly about misapprehension of precepts and observances. It is a lower fetter.

MN64:5.10: That misapprehension of precepts and observances is reinforced in them, not eliminated: it is a lower fetter.

Consider a person who shoplifts, which is stealing. If they burn a little house every time they shoplift, is the harm done to the shopkeeper taken away? How could this burning of a little house help? That shoplifter is bound by a lower fetter.

On the other hand, consider a person who grieves for a beloved one, missing a smile or caring glance. If that person burns a little house thinking, "This grief is not mine, I am not this grief, this grief is not my self", it may help.

MN62:8.5: This should be truly seen with right understanding like this: ‘This is not mine, I am not this, this is not my self.’

Taken together, these two examples show us that we need to be careful about becoming attached to the burning of little houses, especially if we think, "the burning of little houses is mine."

Perhaps one might ask if burning the little house is escaping the burning house or clinging to it?


It would be good if little Red abounds the circles of "Show masters", starts to investigate what the Sublime Buddha taught, and possible finds Refuge in the Gems.

While such wouldn't work by aversion, even by burning things, good to inwardly burn away defilements by ways of gratitude as only such would give release toward higher.
