Vajra Armor

Postby dakini_boi » Mon Sep 12, 2011 3:37 pm

Just wondering, is Vajra Armor practice used for emotional disorders?
How about lung imbalance, for example insomnia? Or would there be other practices more specific to such things?

Just in case you're not familiar with the concept of the 404 diseases in TM, when the text says "404 kinds of disease," that means the 101 kinds of wind disease plus the 101 kinds of bile disease plus the 101 kinds of phlegm disease plus the 101 kinds of combined disease for a total of 404 diseases. Thus wind disease are definitely implied in the source text even if the word "wind" is not specifically mentioned. So rest your mind on this point and have no doubt about this mantra's supreme curative effectiveness.

Good luck and good recitations.

Thanks you guys. I didn't know what the 404 diseases were, your clarification helps, Pema Chopel.

Why does the text say "volume of mantras"? - I thought there was just one Vajra Armor mantra

Haha, yes that's true. Thanks for the clarification.

Just one more question about the Vajra Armor mantra - I know there's no visualization for it, but I'm curious - who is the deity associated with it? Is it Vajrapani, or Guru Dragpo? Or are these one and the same in this case?

Thanks for answering my questions, I offer you several recitations of Vajra Armor. :smile:
