Thai magic story 1

A monk from Thailand taught me to chant. The number of times to chant is equal to my present age plus one.

Therefore if I am 45 years old, Then I need to chant 46 times. This is the minimum count per day.

I asked why isn’t it 21 times or 108 times. He said it is magic and smiled.

I followed faithfully. Then it was my birthday. The count increased by one that morning.

While chanting, a thought arose. I wondered how many count I can accumulate in this lifetime. Is 108 count possible?

Then a peace dawn upon me that birthday morning. His magic worked!

Yup life is unpredictable. Every moment counts!

Happiness built upon peace is bliss. Thai monk magic. Skillful and neat.


My Buddhist name is Ratna Jamyang Puntsog. I first encountered Buddhism in this life when I was 12. Formally took ceremonial refuge in the triple gem when I was 19. I believe the different spiritual methods were taught by Buddha to suit various beings who each have their own unique characteristic. The various sects and practices that arose are just a naming convention invented by disciples out of communication necessity. Had read and studied different forms of Buddhism. Volunteered in Buddhist organization. Until it last, I hope to share my views on Buddhism and find like minded practitioners around the world. May we practice Buddha's instruction together and connect through cyber space!
