A lady followed me to Thailand to pay homage to Four Face Buddha. This is her first trip with me to Thailand, she was so excited and curious that she kept looking at the scenery and places along the way.
When we reached Erawan Shrine, I asked her, " What would you like to ask ? What are you seeking for ? "
The lady said, " Teacher, I would like to ask Four Face Buddha why is my luck unfavourable ? Can Four Face Buddha please help me to check ? "
I asked her, " Are you your parents biological child ? Four Face Buddha is unable to check your record. "
The lady said, " Yes, my parents gave birth to me. Why are you unable to check ? "
I told her, " There isn't any of your record. "
The lady said, " I have changed my name before, can that be the reason ? "
I said, " Write down your original name for Four Face Buddha to check. "
After the lady wrote her original name, we were still unable to check.
I said, " How many times did you change your name ? "
The lady said, " I even changed my surname ! Because my mother remarried so I changed my surname. "
I said, " You changed your name and surname, no wonder we could not check your records. Hahahaha ~ "
Four Face Buddha said, " Your original name is more auspicious because it was given to you by your ancestors with their blessings. So after you changed your name, you cannot receive those blessings anymore.
The lady said in astonishment, " Is that so ! So I did not change my name for the better, moreover I even changed my surname. Oh my god ! Haha ~ "
It's is perfectly fine for us to have our name changed. Changing our name is like a brand new start in life, we'll have expectations, new hopes and wishes. But we must go to a Tian Gong temple to inform of the changes that we have made so that our records will be updated. Otherwise, should there be any blessings for us, we will not be able to receive any because god is not able to trace our whereabouts.
