Seated Buddha Protected by the Nāga King

April – Devoted Abode, Protecting Oneself and Others

The pandemic situation is still affecting our social lives, yet inner selves need to flow steadily. Maintaining a high morale does not have to mean going out with family and friends; comfort can also be found when we are staying at home with family or alone, living safely and in peace. Reminiscent of Indra’s Net metaphor, may we protect ourselves and others, closely intertwined as a community.

All sentient beings, including us can be vulnerable, so sometimes we require protection and mutual support. Did you know that as stable as the Buddha may seem, he still requires protection? When he was meditating under the Bodhi Tree in Bōdh Gayā, he encountered heavy storms for seven days. Worried about the Buddha, the Nāga King rushed to guard the Enlightened One with his serpentine body. Similarly, when you protect others, others will guard you in reciprocity. Together, we share Nāga King’s universal protection with your family and other relatives.
