8. Armour Protection
Form the Vajra Clasp Mudra before the third-eye chakra. Visualise we draw a beam of dazzling white light downwards, filling us, engulfing us.
|The Vajra Clasp Mudra|
After recitation, bring the mudra to touch the third-eye chakra, then throat chakra, heart chakra, left shoulder, right shoulder, then back to the third-eye chakra.
Visualise that you are now actually a lighted up Crossed-Dorje.
|The Crossed Dorje (Vishva-Vajra)|
At the moment of releasing the mudra, we visualise that we shoot a beam of medium blue light towards the universe; and we in turn draw it down, placing it to the front, back, left and right of us.
Visualise it in a form of blue light, starting to rotate in a clockwise direction.
It starts to spin faster and faster – this means that the Dharma Protectors are protecting you all the time.
We thank all dharmapalas for guiding us, protecting us, all around the clock.
I met a neighbour staying in the same block of flats.
She has the common cold and a look at her, she is extremely exhausted and her eyes are real dim.
I asked her whether she does Ancestors offering this month.
She said she did for her late spouse.
I said she should also do so for her ancestors from both parents.
Then I taught her to write the recipients' name clearer and chant Amitabha's title, so that her offering won't be seize away by the fierce & violent ghosts.
She said a Shi-fu taught her to burn incense with a basin of water around the incense bin, this is to ensure the incense offering won't be taken away forcefully.
I told her this is Boundary Protection!
But effectiveness of this is in question!
What the shi-fu taught her is most likely to set her mind at ease only!
I invited her to attend the upcoming Ksitigarbha Boddhisattva event. :)
