Blessing Chord: the Holy Spirit of the Dalai Lama
Moon’s Healthy Journey…
I am really into objects that have been spiritually blessed because I believe that we can connect and tap into the positive energies in and around such objects. I received this blessing chord through a Tibetan Buddhist temple in Los Angeles. It was disseminated by a Tibetan monk who had it blessed in front of the Dalai Lama in Dharmasala, India, where the Dalai Lama calls his home after being exiled from Tibet.
The blessing chord is really just a simple piece of cloth that has been woven into a thin braid. It is worn around the wrist 24/7. I know some people who have been wearing their blessing chord for over 5 years.
Whenever I look at the chord, I feel blessed by the Buddha and reminds me of his teaching that the Buddha-hood nature exists in each and every one of us — within our core Being. If we tap into the heart of who we are through meditation or stillness of our minds, we can all reach Enlightenment as the Buddha achieved. Now that’s a powerful message and blessing chord, right?!
So find your own blessed objects to which you can deeply connect on a spiritual level and get yourself one step closer to being Enlightened!
