“How do I protect myself from witchcraft or evil eye?”
I have been asked this question a lot. That if I were to charge ten Philippine peso per person every time I’m asked this question, I would have earned several thousands of peso by now.
In order to save time from answering this question, I thought I’d just write about it.
But before we talk about that, it begets the question as to evil eye or witchcraft is real?
If we were to base our answer on Buddhist Sutras and Taoist texts, the answer is definitely yes. In fact, one of the Shakyamuni Buddha’s disciple, Ananda, was bewitched by a witch so that he will break his vow of celibacy and sleep with her daughter who happens to be a hospitality girl. This is where the Surangama Mantra started, and it was followed by the Surangama Sutra.
Evil Eye is basically “usog” in Filipino. This happens when a person who has a strong neutral or bad chi looks at you and intentionally or unintentionally wish you bad thing, and that bad thing happens to you. Or when a person gives you that look and you start to get sick. This is quite common than we realize.
Witchcraft on the other hand is not very common. I believe that it still exist, however, it is not as common as most people think it is. Doing witchcraft is much more complicated and requires a lot of chi. however, contrary to popular belief, despite the negative connotation of the word; witchcraft does not necessary mean evil. There are positive witchcraft, it really depends on what energy you use. But for the purpose of this article, witchcraft here refers to something evil or bad.
Here are top 5 ways to protect yourself from evil eye or witchcraft:
STAY POSITIVE AND STAY GOOD. If we stay positive and if we stay good we only attract positive chi. this should help protect us from all those evil eyes or negative power of witchcraft.
WEAR AN AMETHYST OR CLEAR QUARTZ. Wearing these two crystals will provide us with a positive auric shield. However, this is only effective for evil eyes and light form of witchcraft. If you are attacked with something stronger then this definitely will not work.
TAKE A SALT BATH. If you suspect that you got the evil eye or witchcraft is being done to you. Take a salt bath, make sure you use rock salt, sea salt, pink Himalayan salt, or the rare black salt. Put approximately 1 tablespoon of the salt on a small pail of water and use this at the start before you shampoo or soap yourself. For a bathtub, use about a cup and soak in it for a minimum of 5 minutes. Do this for one to three days for evil eye. If you suspect witchcraft, do this for 7 to 21 days.
WEAR A POWERFUL AMULET. One of the best ways to protect you from evil eye and witchcraft is to wear some powerful amulet. My favorite is definitely the one that is regarded as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon called Vajrapani Ruel, but of course the Surangama Mantra Amulet blessed by a high ranking monk should work very well as well, the Illness Suppression Amulet is also a very good protective amulet for evil and witchcraft. The Jatukam Ramathep Amulet is also a very powerful amulet for this purpose.
CHANT PROTECTIVE MANTRAS IN A DEEP MEDITATIVE STATE. Chanting protective mantras in a deep meditative state, in a state that you are almost not aware of your surroundings is a very good protection against evil eye or witchcraft. The following mantras should prove helpful if chanted one after the other: (1.) OM AMI DEWA HRIH (2.) NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CHALE CHULE CHUNDI SOHA (3.) TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHNISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NI SOHA.
Today, allow me to share with you a wonderful somewhat miraculous story of a reader, not with the Vajrapani Ruel, which is the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon but with the Surangama Mantra Amulet.
EA is a young man who primarily works as a model and sometimes does hosting job. He is an undergrad and although is eloquent he finds it hard to find a more stable job, and he thinks that hosting and modeling are the only things he can do. However, he knows that he is not getting any younger and both modeling and hosting are a cruel industry. Sometimes when you are not as young as they want you to be then you start to lose on your projects.
So EA decided to migrate to Canada to work there. He has a friend there who told him that life in Canada, as long as you work hard, is really good. That prompted EA to set out and apply for visa in Canada to work there. He did this with his younger sister.
After several years of trying and several interviews, EA’s sister left for Canada last year, but EA was denied so many times that he has lost hope. EA’s girlfriend is a Buddhist and a reader of this blog who happens to be my friend’s sister also. When she found out that I have the authentic Surangama Mantra Amulet blessed by a high-ranking Pure Land Buddhist Monk, she decided to get one for EA even though it is quite pricey. She got it for EA not for his dreams, but because she knows that the Surangama Mantra Amulet is a powerful amulet, and she believes that the Heavenly Beings will always ‘hover’ over EA whenever he wears it and that this will in turn always keep EA safe and somehow also give him a competitive edge in life.
Several days after EA got his Surangama Mantra Amulet; he received a letter informing him that he is scheduled for an interview in the Canadian Embassy. EA didn’t feel like going anymore because he felt that it’s a futile effort. However, EA’s mom and his girlfriend convinced him to attend. His girlfriend even insisted that he wear the Surangama Mantra Amulet during the interview to give him some luck.
Well, EA was just informed that he passed the interview and pending a few more documents needed he will be issued a visa. EA worked on the documents and to make the long story short he was issued a visa already.
EA and his girlfriend both tells me that they totally believe that it’s the Surangama Mantra Amulet that made EA’s dream come true. Because there was not much difference before and with the latest interview, well, the only difference is that he doesn’t have the Surangama Mantra Amulet before!
