My very dear, most precious, most kind, most dear, wish-fulfilling one,
Here I have one thing to ask: to build a Naga King statue. This is one of the Thirty-five Buddhas, called the Naga King. If there are a lot of infectious skin diseases in an area, it is often caused by nagas. So building a statue of the Naga King, even a small statue, stops those kinds of diseases.
I checked a few times what to do to stop the Ebola disease and one thing is to build a Naga King statue one and a half stories high in the area where there is Ebola. This came out in my observation as very useful to prevent the disease. I also explained to __ about this.
The Naga King has a white head and the rest of the holy body is blue, and the hands are in a different mudra from Shakyamuni Buddha. Reciting the Naga King mantra is very powerful, and if one recites the mantra 100,000 times it can stop leprosy disease. [The name mantra of the Naga King: Lu wang gyi gyal po.]
So to prevent Ebola it came out very good for this statue to be built in the area [where there is Ebola]. I don’t mean directly in the exact area, just in the general area, if you are able to find suitable land. If there is a place, then it would need to be checked first, to see if it is the correct area to have the benefit.
What do you think? I am sure people there wouldn’t want to sponsor the statue. I am sure they would have no understanding why they should build a Buddha statue, it’s so difficult, but maybe you can get help from Chinese or Western students.
With much love and prayers...
PS. The statue material could be made in Nepal. [It can be similar to statues Rinpoche has had made in Kopan. Rinpoche can give example.] Before going to that level, the first thing would be to know if a statue can be built in the area where the Ebola is spreading. If it’s not possible to build the statue there, then no need to take it further. One way would be to see if you can somehow contact the leaders of the area and see if land can be given for a statue to be built. If they are wise, they will do anything to stop Ebola, but it depends on their mind and how open they are.
