Taoist Uses Of Sword Mudra
The closing sword mudra ritual can also be used for passive protection though rarely.
Sword mudra is extensively used in Taoist rituals. The
normal use of sword mudra is to write talismans in the air or on the palm; to
one extreme, it can also be used to kill evil spirits.
My brother in dharma is very expert in using sword mudra. He
only needs to point at the person possessed by spirit, the person would then shivers
and the sprit will subsequently annihilated. However, this method is just too
unkind to be used as it slaughters without any compassions. Hence, when my
brother in dharma is old and sick, he was possessed by others spirits that
wanted to seek revenge.
In order to harness the full power of sword mudra, we must
first know the tricks of the trade.
In Traditional Taoist practices, there are two types of
formula: the first is the opening of sword mudra, and the second is the closing
of the mudra. A sword mudra is deemed as a real sword hence it will need to be
I will just show you the closing ritual for the sword mudra
for now, which is also good for passive protection against all dangers:
The first step is to use one’s thumb to press on the points
on one’s fingers as shown and while doing so, recite the below mantra:
(The heavenly sword is
elegant while the earthly sword is true, it encompasses thunder and lighting.
It also moves the North Stars, all becomes auspicious and the sun, moon and
star lights remove all dangers!)
After that, one just holds his/her hands in front of his/her
chest and take a bow facing the main altar.
Of course, this practice will be different according to
various lineages. Allow me just to keep some secrecy for now as my intention is
just to let you know that there is such a method. The reason is that, if one is
diligent in the practice of Taoist sword mudra, then he/she can also harm
mortal beings and animals too; hence care should be exercise.
