Prayed for luck and fortune at the four-faced Buddha
by Nicholas Kang
I am not a very religious person though I respect all sorts of religion in the world. I am the kind of person where something must happen right in front of my eyes before I will believe it.
So what happened was back in 2006, I travelled to Bangkok for the first time. I have heard numerous stories back home in Singapore about the four-faced Buddha's extraordinary powers.
So I decided to make a visit and was amazed by the people visiting the shrine. And I felt something different, I felt good though the weather was getting to me earlier. So, I decided to seek guidance on how to make offerings and prayers.
During that time I do some casual betting on soccer. So I prayed for luck and peace. Then I left, went back to my hotel, placed my soccer bets, rested and headed out. The soccer game began and after the game ended, I was really surprised and could't believe it.
I won every bet! I have been betting on soccer for the past 3 years and this is the first time that I have ever won something like this. All the matches I bet on won and I am talking about 6 different soccer matches!
I won quite a sum of money and immediately I thought of the four-faced Buddha. I asked myself, is it the power of the four-faced Buddha or it is just my luck? But of course,I would certainly accept that I have got the blessings from the four-faced Buddha!
The very next morning, I headed back and offered all the dancers to dance for the Buddha, donated some money and prayed to the Buddha. I have been back to Bangkok ever since, at least once a year. In fact, I went in March 2009 and I brought back a four-faced Buddha to pray and respect at home.
Believe it or not!
