Protection from Black Magic and Spirits

Brief and simple practices for Buddhists to engage in to dispel black magic, spirits and unnatural disturbances.
 This is what His High Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche said
Homage to His Holiness the Dalai Lama and all my great Gurus who have kindly guided me for years.

As Buddhists we have the responsibility to learn Buddhism and apply meditation to what we have learned to recondition the mind. When the mind is reconditioned positively then the outer actions will automatically follow. The outer is a reflection of the inner. In conjunction with learning and meditation, one must also engage in the practice of collecting merits and purification of negative karma.

Some people may think that doing actions to collect merit for oneself is selfish. That is wrong view because it is true that one is collecting merits, but it is with a Mahayana or Bodhicitta attitude. If one collects merits with a Bodhicitta motivation then the collection of merits propels us toward Buddhahood and our achieving that Buddhahood allows us to bring sentient being skillfully to Enlightenment. Only a fully Enlightened being has the perfect skill, method and wisdom to benefit others completely.

So we are collecting the merits not for ourselves but for others. When someone makes the statement that collecting merits is a selfish act, it shows that the person does not have correct understanding. Merit is the key factor for bringing us to full Enlightenment. Those who realize that will enthusiastically engage in the collection of merits for the sake of others. In fact, the more suffering one sees that others have to endure, the more one wishes to gain merits in order to find a way to release others.
Some signs that someone has been charmed are:
2.sudden change in personality
3.unnatural behaviour
4.unexplained accidents
5.not acting to the benefit of loved ones but following an outsider for no reason
6.having a intense attraction toward someone they just met but not knowing why (love charm).

These are some of the signs. Other signs include spirits following us and materializing, a feeling like someone is watching us, or a certain area in the house feels uncomfortable. This can be the result if someone sent something to us, we have offended a spirit in a certain location, a local regional deity of a locale is displeased with us, or we have practiced a spirit and it is now exacting its pay.

In Buddhism, we have countless methods to counter this. Each school of Buddhism has valid methods to counter this. But I will mention a few here that will be easy, simple for the layman and very effective for people without a guide to use that is safe.

Then in cases of actual spirits disturbing us or black magic sent to us there are four helpful methods among the many that any layperson may do without monks.

For light cases, one may take refuge in the Three Jewels. One must not only take refuge from the mouth but one must take from the heart. Taking from the heart meaning to let go of all fears and trust the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. One’s refuge precepts must be strong and unbroken. If one has broken one’s precepts of refuge, then we can confess and regret sincerely. Holding the precepts is very powerful protection against negative spirits.

By taking refuge (having complete faith) in the Three Jewels and holding one’s precepts, we can chant the refuge mantra in Sanskrit:

One should chant this mantra at least one rosary a day, accumulating 100,000 slowly. But most importantly one must have pure relationship (samaya) with our refuge Guru or it will not be very effective. The bad relationship we have with our teachers will create such a powerful negative karma that it destroys the very basis of refuge so how can reciting refuge mantra be beneficial? All Dharma practices and accomplishments will degenerate due to broken samaya with our Guru and future Dharma practices will bear no fruit till we apologize sincerely to our Guru.

This is Singdoma the great dispeller of black magic and spirits
One must be believe in singdoma's power in order to get the benefits.
