Vajra Armor works!!

Postby Fa Dao » Thu Oct 24, 2013 2:52 pm

Hey everybody..thought I would share. Got into a gnarly motorcycle accident. Car pulled in front of me and I hit it going around 40 mph. No helmet. Got launched through the air and hit the pavement. Knocked me out cold. Ambulance rushed me to the hospital. Long story short although I feel like hammered shit there were no serious injuries. ER Docs couldn't believe I was in one piece and I was able to walk (very slowly) out of the ER. I truly believe it was due to me doing the Vajra Armor 3 day retreat that Rinpoche gave me a while back and making the amulet that I wear all the time. Rinpoche Rocks!! So, if you have the time to do that retreat..do it if you can.

Thank you for sharing but please wear a helmet next time!

Either that or you were amazingly lucky.

Next time you get in an acident and you die, you won' t be here to tell people it didn' t work.

I do not understand.
ChNN book says that we do not need to do anything
any preparation or visualization
simply recite VA mantra,nothing more.

I would ask the master about the amulet
if I'm not able to personally meet with him?

Or maybe someone of you has the opportunity to meet this year Rinpoche
and could ask for a amulet for me?

very happy that you had this good luck, but...

1. as someone mentioned, if it didn't work, you won't have chance to tell us. i am not sure if you can link it to that. Maybe your life force just hasn't finished.
2. it is wrong to ride a motobike without a helmet, period.

I am sure Vajra Armor works somehow, but next time it might work as helping you not to go to lower realms.
still not a bad thing though.

The Vajra Armor amulet is truly miraculous. It's great that you had/have one.

However, as a biker myself, I strongly urge you to wear a helmet every time you ride. I've gone down on bikes myself and, at least once, I know I would've fractured my skull without my helmet. You dress for the crash, not for the ride. Just as in your case, you never know when something is going to come out of nowhere and cause you to hit the pavement.

:namaste: and keep the shiny side up.

If you knew Fa Dao like I do, you'd know you can't tell him anything!
