An honest and hardworking young couple followed me to Thailand to pay homage to Four Face Buddha.
When we reached Erawan Shrine, I asked them, " What would you like to ask ? What are you seeking for ? "
The wife said, " Teacher, our wealth luck has not been favourable these few years. We would like to ask Four Face Buddha what is wrong with it ? "
Four Face Buddha said, " You have debts. Your karma of debts is very heavy. You are laden with a very heavy burden because of that.
The husband nodded his head and said, " Yes, indeed we have debts. But is not our personal debts. "
Four Face Buddha said, " You became a guarantor. You acted as a guarantee for people. Now you are helping people to repay the loan that they owe. "
The wife was astonished and said, " Yes ! Indeed ! Really... You are very right, I am really fuming mad because of this. I became a guarantor for a relative of mine but they defaulted on their loan obligations. Every month, I have to use my hard earned money to perform their obligations. They are the ones who took up the loan but now we carry the responsibilty of paying for them. As it is already, we are struggling and having a hard time ourselves.
Four Face Buddha said, " You are also carrying the karma of one of your relatives, political karma and also some illegal business karma.
The husband said anxiously, " Is my cousin ! I was merely acting as his driver and was not involved in those activities. I do not know what kind of illegal activities he is doing. I am totally unaware. Why should I shoulder his karma ?
Four Face Buddha said, " As I have mentioned, debts karma, guarantor karma, political karma and illegal activities karma, all these karma is enough to kill you. That is because these are already registered in heaven's account, so your wealth luck is completely sealed. You will never be able to resolve your problem if you do not unlock it. "
The wife felt very helpless and said, " Teacher, what should we do then ? We have really brought misery to our family ! Teacher.. please ask Four Face Buddha to help us !
Many a times, we would unknowingly shoulder people's karma despite the fact we are still struggling ourselves, it just adds to our load. This couple's hardwork and perserverance has not been invain. At least Four Face Buddha has helped them to discover the problem. With Buddha's help, they should be able to overcome the obstacles and solve the problem in no time. Must endure !
