The Vision at the Temple

It was the day following having my sak yant sacred tattoo done on my back. Since I had no soreness from it and the fact it was already healing, my friend decided to take me out for the day in her car. We went to a temple by the river that I had never visited before.

 As we pulled into the car park, I thought I saw a monkey look quickly through the window and on asking she laughed and said ”no monkeys” but you can feed the fish later. We got out of the car and she went in front of me to get some lotus flowers to offer to the Buddha. She was about fifteen steps in front of me. Suddenly a huge monkey was hurtling towards me and I came face to face with it as it stopped. I froze, wondering what to do if it launched itself at me or bit me. But it just sat there staring me in the face and I stared back. I could not cry for help, or shout my friend or anything and other people at the temple had stopped to look at me.

 My friend eventually missed me and turned around to see where I was. As she turned the huge monkey laughed and I could see he looked like the Hanuman sacred spirit monkey, not a normal one. He laughed and turned into a dog as he ran past me! I swear, I watched it morph from the Hanuman into a dog. I could not explain anything to my friend as I just stood there in total shock at what I had seen. I also assumed she thought I was crazy enough just standing there without telling her I had seen a spirit monkey that morphed into a dog in front of me.

 I later read that the Hanuman has a reputation as a shape shifter, something that can morph from one thing into another and that he usually appears to those who need more fun and laughter back in their life. Well, it certainly worked for me. I can laugh about it now when I remember, but at the time it gave me hell of a shock to see him.

The Dream

Things were in a real mess for me and I could see no logical way out of that mess, which was not of my making. I was struggling with legal paperwork at the bank and I had no idea of how to solve the problem. Then I read that if you have a sak yant tattoo or an amulet from a Master, you can pray to that Master for help and protection. I needed both in this situation, which had been going on for months with no resolution in sight. I asked for his help that night and offered incense to his picture and the amulet.

That night I had a very realistic dream that he was standing looking into my eyes in a room, and that he was conveying something to me that did not need words. He then smiled and walked away. When I woke I remembered the dream and how real it had seemed. I felt totally different about everything, calm and optimistic, when only two days earlier I had been crying in frustration at the situation.

I went to the bank both calm and confident. I told the bank manager what my new plans were and despite his shock at the change in me he did the paperwork in minutes that they had previously refused to do for me. Ask nicely and you just might receive the help that you need.
