It is said that as the recent economic condition gets worse, the number of patients suffering from the sense of insecurity has been increasing.
A friend of mine, who practices medicine, once told me that when he sees a new patient complaining of depression, he gives the patient some vitamins to see what he/she is going to be like instead of prescribing antidepressant drugs, and that as he gives the vitamins, he explains to the patient that these vitamins are very effective and make a lot of patients get better. In fact, more than 50% of his patients get better because of the vitamins.
I think this is a kind of placebo effect. If a reliable doctor explains the effects of a drug and you take it with water at a prescribed time every day, you will feel secured, assuring yourself that this is going to work. I think placebo effect is good as a medical practice as long as a thoughtful doctor gives an explanation to the patient before prescribing the drug.
Medical practices and religious ones have a lot in common. When you are told to chant a charm by a psychic who you think is reliable, you will believe the chant to be effective. However, the problem here is that such a religious practice can do you either good or harm.
- The more incomprehensible a chant is, the more you assume it will work. But, with the World of the Dead coming to an end and a new, righteous era just around the corner, chanting such a meaningless chant becomes poisonous.
- Secret chants, magic words or “special” rituals given or taught by a spiritual master – these are all useless now.
These are nothing but a tool of trade for the masters who want to raise their reputation and make money. Righteous, fair gods would never give them a hand. They will be less and less effective along with the demise of the World of the Dead.
Some people may say, “What does it mean for traditional prayers to cease to be effective? ” “Chants and prayers have some secret meaning word by word. ” But, in point of fact, they’re labored meanings and therefore of no use. They are no longer effective. Those who assert their effectiveness are ignorant of the spiritual truth. They had better not make people have a false bright future by teaching them mysterious words with no practical spiritual power.
The best “vitamin”, which is harmless, effective and fit for your spiritual body and all people can use for free, is the words that expresses your grateful feelings and also can detoxicate even deadly poison. The words are;
I Ka Shi Te I Ta Da I Te A Ri Ga To U Go Za I Ma Su
I AM GRATEFUL FOR BEING KEPT ALIVE
