A very cultured and refined lady followed me to Thailand to pay homage to Four Face Buddha. Her main purpose was to seek buddha's help for her son's career.
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 about my son's career. "
Four Face Buddha replied, " You pray to many deities at home. "
The lady replied, " Yes, I pray at home and I have many deities, that's right. "
Four Face Buddha said, " Your family's god and your deceased husband have come along with you, they want to talk to you. "
The lady said in surprise, " What does my deceased husband and my family's god have got to tell me ? "
Four Face Buddha said, " You are very clever ! You know that they want to convey something to you. Your husband said that a few years ago, your son was very rebellious, he left home and went out to work. Now that your husband has passed away, you hoped that your son will return home and be by your side. "
The lady said, " Yes, what my husband said it correctly, Four Face Buddha is very accurate. Three years ago, my son was extremely rebellious, my husband and I got so mad with him that we drove him out of the house. Actually, he was helping out with the family's business but we decided to let him go out and work to let the society teach him. "
Four Face Buddha said, " Your husband's final wish is for your son to return home. He hope that you will call your son to return because it will be good to have a man in the family. Moreover, it has been three years since he left home and perhaps he is more matured now. "
The lady nodded her head and said, " Ok ! I understand ! Can Four Face Buddha please tell my husband that I will definitely fulfill his wish. "
Although a person is gone, but they still worry about their family. Sometimes, because of this, they are unable to let go and they will not be able to go to where they should be going in peace. So it is best for us to ease their worries by fulfilling their final wishes so that they can go in peace.
