This rarely-taught practice, favored by Tibetan physicians, is said to have the power to cure all 404 types of disease, and is highly recommended for those facing health challenges. Beyond that, the practice itself contains a complete path of enlightenment, balancing the outer and inner elements and resulting in complete liberation.
“Guru Rinpoche predicted that during these degenerate times, beings’ merit would decrease every day and the elements would become more and more imbalanced. We can see this with so many floods, droughts, fires, earthquakes, hurricanes and extreme heat waves. New diseases are appearing that doctors have never seen and cannot treat easily. People’s conduct is becoming rougher every day and negative spirits and energies are gaining strength.
However, out of their great compassion, the buddhas have given us real tools to transform this negativity and protect us. Of all these methods, Vajra Armor is one of the most powerful protection practices for our health and to remove unwanted circumstances of all kinds.
There are many different Vajra Armor sadhanas, some with elaborate rituals. I will be presenting a very concise sadhana with a deity form root mantra that has the same power and is very practical for our busy lives.”
~Lama Sonam Rinpoche
