5 Ways to Protect Yourself From Evil Eye and/or Witchcraft!

Published Hunyo 16, 2016 by jptan2012

“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.

Chant it 108x each mantra.

Recite A Sutra (2): Get Healed or Good Health, Create An Aura of Protection, Attract Wealth with the Power of ‘The Medicine Buddha Sutra’!

Published Abril 8, 2016 by jptan2012

In the preceding post, I reminded people about the effects of the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star that also cause accidents. One way, to protect you from it is to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet, and this amulet is proving to be a very useful tool to serve as a shield against the effect of the Illness Star.

However, there is another way of protecting oneself from the effects of the Illness Star, and that is to recite the THE SUTRA ON THE ORIGINAL VOWS AND MERITS OF THE MEDICINE MASTER LAPIS LAZULI LIGHT TATHAGATHA, which is more popularly known as the Medicine Buddha Sutra. But before that, in my previous post called INVITE WONDERFUL BLESSINGS IN YOUR LIFE BY RECITING A SUTRA. I talked about the importance and tremendous benefit one may get when reciting a sutra. By reciting, I mean chanting it out load, reading it out loud, reciting it out load. If you can recite it by heart (memory) then all the better because the merit that you get is multiplied by a hundred fold. Personally speaking I have already memorized the HEART SUTRA, THE BUDDHA SPEAKS OF THE EIGHT REALIZATIONS OF GREAT BEINGS SUTRA, THE 42 CHAPTERS SUTRA, and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. 

Since this year the ruling star is the Illness Star, reciting the Medicine Buddha Sutra will definitely bring a lot of benefit to all people. One is sure to get good health by simply reciting this sutra. However, more than that as you read the sutra you will know that one of it’s promise is also that you get protected from evil spirits and evil intentions of other people, but more than that you can also attract wealth simply reciting this sutra. Little do people know that Medicine Buddha is not simply for good health and protection but Medicine Buddha is also a powerful Buddha that helps attract wealth. In fact, the Illness Suppression Amulet, while primarily made for protection against the effect of the #2 Flying Star, because of the fact that it is consecrated under Medicine Buddha this means that it is also a good wealth amulet.

You will find the link where you can download the Medicine Buddha Sutra below but I have written about it before and I have written about Medicine Buddha Himself before. I’ll put in the links below.

But it should be noted though that before reciting a sutra, it is customary the one should brush their teeth first and wash their face, it you take a shower better.

Put your palms together and say – NAMO FUNDAMENTAL TEACHER SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA 3X. After that one should say also the Sutra Opening Gatha:

THE DHARMA INFINITELY PROFOUND AND SUBTLE

IS RARELY ENCOUNTERED EVEN UNDER A MILLION OF KALPAS

WE ARE NOW ABLE TO HEAR, READ, AND FOLLOW IT

MAY WE TRULY UNDERSTAND THE TATHAGATHA’S TRUE MEANING

This is basically an invocation for the Buddha Shakyamuni helps you understand the sutra.

Please click the link to download the actual sutra – The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata. The version I’m putting here is that the one translated by Chung Tai, which is in the lineage of Zen Buddhism.
