Is It Right? : How A Surangama Mantra Amulet Short Personal Testimony Of A Reader Got Me Thinking.

Published November 9, 2015 by jptan2012

A few days ago, I received an sms from a reader who got a few Vajrapani Ruel and Surangama Mantra Amulet for herself and for her family. Her story is one of the stories featured in the post called – COUNTING MONEY AND COUNTING MORE MONEY: SIMPLE AND SHORT VAJRAPANI RUEL STORIES ABOUT READERS WHO INCREASED THEIR WEALTH LUCK. One of the Surangama Mantra Amulet went to her daughter, Mia. For now I will not hide her under an initial because as you can see the message below has her name anyway, but I will not be putting her family name.

Please see the message:Reader SMS

For those who don’t read or understand Filipino, allow me to translate it for you. It says:

Mia is asking whether is it allowed that she temporarily stop using her Surangama Mantra Amulet so that it can rest for awhile. Very toxic (toxic na toxic). (Meaning she has a lot of patients)

I then replied:

She doesn’t want to have lot of patients?

She then replied:

She’s really happy! It was just a joke. Because I always pick her up. We usually have to stay up to 7:30 (PM) and (her clinic hours) are really just up to 5:30PM.

When I got to talk to her that her daughter, Mia, a pediatrician, started wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet, the number of patients who sees her apparently increased also. Of course, I was happy to hear about this short testimonial, but it also got me thinking. Is it proper or morally right to be happy to have more patients?

Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

I called up the Pure Land Buddhist Monk who supplied the Surangama Mantra Amulets to raise fund for their temple and ask him about this, and allow me to explain in my words, how I understand what he explained here.

Off hand, it’s wrong to be happy that people are getting sick but having more patients and more people, or in the case of Mia who is a pediatrician, more children who are sick are two different things. She is happy because her medical practice is booming, but nobody is happy that more people are getting sick. Besides a doctor pediatrician clarified that for pediatric medicine not all who comes in are sick, sometimes they are just there for a check – up or a vaccination.

The point here is whether Mia is around or not her patients will get sick and will need vaccinations and check – ups. It’s not like she prayed for them to get sick or it’s not like the Surangama Mantra Amulet got them sick so that Mia will have patients. All the Surangama Mantra Amulet did is to direct them to her, and I believe that Mia must be a doctor with a good heart otherwise the Surangama Mantra Amulet would not have worked this way for her. The monk even clarified that there is a very good possibility that Mia’s patients has in fact benefitted by being around her not just because of her knowledge as a physician but also because she was wearing the Surangama (also spelled as Shurangama) Mantra Amulet.
