If you have had some connection with these people you should do the practice of Guru Dragphur. By doing the practice of Guru Dragphur, you won’t receive the negative influence of the Gyalpo. But those who have already had a relationship with them should stop this relationship and should do the practice of Guru Dragphur otherwise they will find themselves with many problems later on. Or if somebody feels that these problems are already there come to me and I give you a kind of protection for not receiving these negativities.

There are so many methods, even sutra methods, that the main difficulty is probably to choose which one one prefers :D

Still think you may be attributing more significance than is necessary to a dream.

Follow the advice in your message footer. It's all fine, let it be.

You run the risk of disturbing your peace of mind by indulging this belief. I do not think the other advice here is helpful even if the motivation of those posting it is genuine.

Depends on your capacity and the strength of the spirit.

Best bet is to appease via offerings. If you try to forcefully overcome the gyalpo and do not have the power to pull it off, you will only piss it off and make things worse.
i used to believe anything Tibetans says when i was younger and wanted to be a wizard but now it makes me laugh a little. buddhism is about critical thinking etc, why do we just accept strangest things without sufficient evidence?

i read in some biography recently that some great masters used to believe that taking a photo will steal your lha, damage wangtang lungta etc but now they did get over it, how do we know 90 % percent of that shamanistic stuff isn't like that? i mean there is nothing bad with it, it's part of their culture but why we just so easily buying it?

rai,

Are you absolutely sure that taking photos is not harmful to the individual photographed on some level? Just because most Lamas now don't believe that doesn't mean it can't be true. (I'm not saying it is true, but I'm questioning your logic.) This is the Kali Yuga and even Lamas are more and more degenerate. We all are! Maybe one of the mechamisms for this degeneration is everyone taking pictures all the time. Looks pretty degenerate to me. :shrug:

my whole family knows a man who seems capable of bi-locating, levitate, curse, and stuff. They consider him a warlock.

Tashi delek NY,

If one is doing the Menla Puja and is really devoted to the Medicine Buddha by:

- repeating the Sutra
- Writing it
- Copying the Sutra
- Spreading the Sutra
- Praising the Sangye Menla

Then

wherever this Sutra circulates or wherever there are sentient beings who hold fast to the name of the Medicine Buddha and respectfully make offerings to him, whether in villages, towns, kingdoms or in the wilderness, we the 12 Generals, will all protect them.

We will release them from all suffering and calamities and see to it that all their wishes are fulfilled.

These 12 Yaksha Generals with their Army are powerful enough to defeat the Gyalpo. :anjali:

if you know your own mind, know how emotions and toughts arises in it you can easily recognise subtle influance of any harmful spirit. but what can they do? do you have anything to loose?

Tashi delek K,

Harmful spirits , yes what can they cause to sentient beings like humans.

Humans possess also a La or soul, which can feel happiness. Also mental health as physical health is for humans very important.
Well the Gyalpo / evil spirit robs it from humans, then humans become little by little unhappy and in a very emancipated stadium they can be very ill and death can follow these illnesses fast, if there is no remedy caused.


That is what we have to loose due to the negative force of energy caused by the evil doer.


Therefore protection against these evil unseen forces , is a wide spread custom in all the Spiritual Tibetan Traditions.

In the ultimate Truth we are Buddha already
In the relative Truth we are humans with problems

The most of us live in the relative view with the problems of the disturbing spirits ( who are also Buddha in the ultimate truth).

The most get via the sequential Path, the ultimate Fruit.

Very good to catch the Spirits and "convert" them to Dharmapalas, only Great Masters can do that job.
The rest of us take refuge in entities like the Medicine Buddhas, Dharmapalas etc.

yes, we may fight half of our lives with enties and demons, beg protectors for protection, read sutras, mantras and dharanis, do rituals etc. There is no end to it. Yet even single Chod practice properly done liberates troubles. Just like that. Why is that so? source of all troubles in clinging to ego, and lack of renounciaction. That's really all

Some of us are all their whole lives busy with their personal fitted methods to combat the negative external forces as well the negative internal forces like conflicting emotions and of course the diminishing of their ego by different methods.

But there exist also the external negative forces like demons etc. which can cause mental as well physical disorders to the humans etc.
These forces are know in the whole world of Buddhism and also outside Buddhism under different names (but stem from the same family)

So i doubt greatly if our ego is the only entity here which is responsible for bad luck, illness, the diminishing of the La /soul, death.
I go more for an inter relationship between ego and the external negative forces.

The Lion a powerful animal goes after weak animals and keep in that way the animals healthy.
The negative forces can enter the body always if the related victim is weak /ill, and enter /visit the person on certain spots.
Also a certain kind of ego , like a very angry mind or proud mind, greedy mind, material, luxury based mind, violent mind (war) etc., is an easy prey for these negative forces, it attracts them.

So there is more between heaven and earth than only our ego.
