Two of my good friends, who are successful businessmen and in their sixties, followed me to Thailand to seek Four Face Buddha's blessings for their career. "
When we reached Erawan Shrine, I asked them, " What would you like to ask ? What are you seeking for ? "
They looked at each other, finally the older man said, " Teacher, I would like to ask about my career, can Four Face Buddha please enlighten me ? "
Four Face Buddha said to one of the them, " You have invited many deities. "
The man replied, " Yes, Four Face Buddha is really fantastic ! Yes, I have invited many deities, probably ten over. "
Four Face Buddha said, " You have been thinking of using these deities to earn money therefore you went around helping people to see their fortune and said that God said this and God said that.. "
The man said, "I was just helping my friends, sometimes when they have problems they would come to me for help and I would help them with God's help. "
Four Face Buddha said, " You can help your friend as long as you do not collect any money, that is absolutely fine. "
The man nodded his head and said, " Yes, I understand, I will not collect any money from them. "
Four Face Buddha said, " God will bless you as long as you help your friends without being paid. But you will not gain God's blessings if you collect payment from them. "
