Recently after receiving flowers, my teacher put a string around my neck. I'm not sure but I believe it may be a protection or a blessing cord. It is multicolored, with red, yellow, black, white and green in it. Another Dharma friend told me that I need to tie a knot in it, and actually did it for me.
Well, when I woke up the next day, the string came apart in one place, and I tied another knot. So now there are two diametrically opposite knots. Maybe this is a silly question, but I wonder if this matters? Has the purpose of the string been defeated by this incident?

My guess is that it all comes down to whether you belive the purpose has been defeated or knot.SeekerNo1000003 wrote:Has the purpose of the string been defeated by this incident?
