Hi.. I’m Lim here I would like to share my story to people all over the world who believe in the four-faced Buddha at the Erawan Shrine in Bangkok.
I can’t really remember when was it, 2009 or 2010? It was the third time I went to the Erawan Shrine to offer my prayers to the four-faced Buddha. After praying, one of the guys from the shrine offered me a four-faced Buddha pendant (佛牌) and I bought it.
I went back to the Hotel Intercontinental to rest and later decided to go out for dinner. I took the lift down to lobby but some how the lift stopped at level 2!
Without noticing it I walked out then realized I was at level 2. By then the lift door had already closed, so I walked down to the lobby.
The hotel has a grand staircase and as I walked down I tripped on my own leg and I fell forward. Just then I felt something pulled me back and I stood still. I looked around, there was nobody there!
My hairs stood on ends! But I knew it was the four-faced Buddha who pulled me up because I had the pendant in my pocket. Ever since then no matter where I go, I’ll wear the pendant and go back every year to worship him.
But every time when I returned to Singapore, something will happen. For example, one year I lost my job which I held for 12 years in this company because of office politics.
After few months someone was willing to invest in in a business with me. The business went up and down...
Seven years later, I hit the jackpot in the local lottery and won a huge amount of money, it was really huge! This solved all my problems and with some money left over.
But I made a mistake and forgot to go back to to redeem my vow. I didn’t spend my money wisely and even when I invested in insurance I lost 80% of my capital.
Within a year all the money was gone and I was left with debt worse than before. I know it was all my fault! And I know the four-faced Buddha is still helping me otherwise I could have been bankrupt.
Finally I realized my mistakes and I sincerely prayed to the four-faced Buddha for his forgiveness. I hope he can show mercy and help me again. I believe the four-faced Buddha won’t really punish you for not redeeming your vow. Or take back what he has given to you.
I think only when you keep your word, you can keep what was given to you.
With gratitude（㓕恩) 🙏🙏🙏
