Today, I would like to
talk about my personal experience with Grand Master's blessing.
A few years ago, I was ill. My doctor checked on me several times,
but could not figure out what the problem was. At first, he said
it was gastritis, then he said it was an intestinal problem. I took
medicine after medicine, but I still couldn't get well. A blood
test ordered by another doctor failed to find anything wrong, yet
I continued getting weaker and thinner.
The illness got so bad
that I couldn't get out of bed, and taking medicine didn't help.
The mere act of opening my eyes would generate a series of dizzy
spells. I also got irritated easily when people talked around me.
The doctor persisted in giving me useless medicine even though he
couldn't find anything wrong with me. Then I thought of Grand Master
-- I faxed a letter to Seattle, asking for help. Then I went to
sleep, as I was feeling very dizzy.
I dreamt of Grand Master.
Grand Master had just finished presiding over a ceremony and was
resting in bed. I entered his room and said, "Grand Master,
I am sick."
Grand Master said, "You
don't look sick!"
I said, "Yes, I am
sick. Please touch my head."
I took Grand Master's
hand. He sat up and touched my head for a long time. He was silent
for a long time too. Then, I felt his blessing coming from his hand
into my head and then my body. After that, my body became covered
Then Grand Master said,
"Aye! You are all right now." Grand Master then lay back
down in bed. At that instant, I awoke from my dream.
Truly, after two days,
I began to get well gradually - a relief after three months of sickness.
A few days later, I realized that Grand Master wasn't in Seattle.
The fax did arrive at Seattle Tantric Quarter, but Grand Master
wasn't there. He was in Taiwan, presiding over a ceremony.
Right here, I want to
emphasize to everyone that although Grand Master is not in the Seattle
True Buddha Tantric Quarter, once a fax reached the Tantric Quarter,
Grand Master's blessing immediately spread to all parts of the world
in all directions.
This is a true personal
experience that I am sharing with all of you.
If any Dharma Sister or
Brother has any query, you can write or fax to the True Buddha Tantric
Quarter. Although Grand Master is no longer in Seattle, rest assured,
his blessing is always there.
Om Mani Padme Hum!
I once wrote a letter
to Seattle, asking for special blessings from Grand Master. After
I finished writing, I placed the letter at my altar, did my prostrations,
and wished that this letter would reach Seattle smoothly and arrive
into Grand Master's hands. I did all this because my country of
residence is very far from the US. After that, I mailed the letter.
Two weeks had passed since
I mailed the letter, and I had totally forgotten about the letter
and the reply. One night, I dreamt that Grand Master was fielding
questions from me. The query form in my hands was the letter I'd
sent to Seattle two weeks before. After reading my letter, Grand
Master gave his blessing, and said, "I will give you a blessing."
Then he took something from a drawer and gave it to me. I didn't
particularly take notice of the object I had just received from
Grand Master. He also gave me some instructions, which I wrote down.
After that, I awoke. Morning had come, and I knew that I just had
a dream that night. But I didn't take the dream to heart. Until
noontime, that is, when the postman delivered a letter - it was
the reply from Grand Master! I was so happy! But I was shocked the
moment I read the letter. Why? Because the answer was exactly the
same as the one in my dream. Grand Master also sent a talisman with
the letter. I then realized that the object I had received in my
dream was the image of Jambhala Bodhisattva, which also came with
the letter. What Grand Master asked me to do in my dreams was written
succinctly in the letter too!
Grand Master is great -- although his letter
hadn't reached me yet, his blessings had already done so. I want
to express my gratitude to Grand Master. We have such a good and
precious Grand Master, whose blessing is so great that it arrives
even before a letter!
