In other words, what ways has chanting protected you during different times in your life?

When i was arrested for visa overstay in Nepal there was this big liberian guy who were going to beat me up in the jail but i put my palms together and silently recited a mantra for self defense. It worked. Took him down.

He was kind afterwards.

Nothing quite like that happened to me.

A friend was being mugged by two men. One grabbed him from behind and started choking him out. He chanted daimoku. One of the men heard it and said, "Yo, that's the shit my sister says. Let's get out of here." They let him go and ran. Later at the hospital, the doctor told him that his chanting probably prevented his throat from collapsing.
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Expedient Means Chapter

There are beings with little dust in their eyes who are falling away because they do not hear the Dhamma. There will be those who will understand the Dhamma.
-Ayacana Sutta

i think everyone has a protected aspect to them..
how many people look behind them and like a car is coming at them they did not hear?

so many times i have heard tales like that from all sorts of people..

but chanting puts all that stuff like on roids.lol..
it's not like we are special we...just enhance what is there...

No, i missed the fact that it was posted in the Nichiren section. Thought it was buddhist chanting in general. Sorry.
