Night before last I had a dream of making a wrong turn and having to drive on a steep highway overpass in the rain, and the car started to act up. The next day, I made a wrong turn and consequently drove over a steep highway overpass in the rain, and the car started to act up... and everything was fine.

I chanted for about four hours and passed the merits onto him.He came back alive.Doing extra chanting(repetition of mantras) helps if we want something that we see in our visions not to happen even for trival stuff.

These are the possibilities for our own meditations but nobody has given instructions like this before. One might well ask, why? To me it is very wonderful. There have been so many "Bodhisattvas" but they have not set forth such meditations. Mr. Chen laughed at this strange circumstance and then repeated: Yes, wonderful. And difficult to understand. There was, as we have mentioned, the sutra and shastra study school for the Prajnaparamita but not one devoted to its practice. Such a state of affairs is very extraordinary and I am sorry to have to report that it is so. Therefore, we must set up such practices for the real practitioners who wish to follow this way.
