Chanting Is Powerless Against Ghosts
I went to
visit my friend Paul and only to learn that his son was harassed by a lady
faithful Buddhist, Paul said he has chanted Pali prayers for two years, generated
countless metta and dedicated all merits to his son’s ghostly partner in the
hope that the accumulated merit will make the ghost to leave his son. He immediately
went into his prayer room and pulled out a stack of books and showed them to me
just to prove that he meant business.
I was a
little agitated by Paul’s seemingly ignorant and yet indiscriminate behavior
about the criticality of his son’s situation.
our conversations roughly:
long has your son been in such situation?”
since you have been chanting, generating metta and dedicated merit for two
years, have you really seen any improvements?”
off… perhaps… very little that I have noticed… I don’t know. “
have done were as if singing and telling stories to the lady ghost. If you
continue to behave as such, then get ready to take the lady ghost as your daughter-in-law.
Chanting can only calm a confused mind; but such act is quite powerless against
spirits. From what I can see, you have two options: see a psychologist, or find
to leave and let Paul think about what is the best option for his son. It’s
none of my business; otherwise people will say I just advertised my service.
