My very dear Wendy,
Thank you very much for your kind letter. I am very sorry for the delay. I am making prayers for your and your family.
I checked and it would be very good if you could recite the Diamond Cutter Sutra eight times. If you are able to recite it more that is even better, but please do at least eight recitations.
In Italy, a Dharma student who was a medical doctor explained that she had been treating a pregnant mother, but something went wrong and the baby died before birth. Then the mother sued her for negligence. The doctor told me that there was no way she was negligent. It was just something unavoidable. Anyway, the case had to go to court, and the doctor was very, very anxious She knew that she was completely innocent, but was quite sure that since it involved a medical hearing, she would be fined. She kept thinking, “You don't know what karma could ripen, even though I’m innocent in this case.”
It came out in my observations for her to recite the Diamond Cutter Sutra eight times. She received this information the evening before her court appearance. She had a lot of faith and devotion and she immediately went on the Internet, found the Diamond Cutter Sutra, downloaded it and recited it eight times through the night. The next morning, she went to court and won the court case. They said she was innocent. So, it would also be good for you to recite it eight times, but you can do more.
It is extremely important that when you recite it, you don't just dedicate it to the court case, with the motivation to not be sued or to win the suit. Instead, have the motivation of liberating so many sentient beings from the ocean of samsara and its causes, and bringing them to the highest enlightenment. For that reason, one needs to achieve enlightenment oneself, especially the wisdom realizing emptiness.
It would also be good for you to recite four malas of the Black Court Case mantra each day until the court case finishes.
Please make your life most meaningful with the thought of bodhicitta and meditating on the lam-rim.
With much love and prayers...
