I believe I have written about this topic before but it is worth repeating again. Sometimes because of our selfish and self – centered attitude we prevent people from having their amulets. This in Buddhism is considered a mortal sin because in a way you prevented a person from having their luck. This is wrong whether one believed in the power of amulets or not. Whether the act is intentional or not it carries a corresponding negative effect to the person who did this.
The most common reasons this happens is when a person acquires an amulet just because he or she thinks he needs it. Thus preventing other people who really need it from acquiring it.
Other reasons are when you wanted to reserve an amulet even if you’re not sure to get it. Or when you got an amulet thinking that you can simply return it when you realize you don’t want it. All these things will create so much bad luck to a person. Thus it is very important that you think twice or thrice before getting an amulet because you’re initial selfishness whether intentional or not might bring more bad luck.
Similarly when a person bad mouths an amulet this also creates bad luck.
