Namyo Ho Renge Kyo Mantra
Namyo Ho Renge Kyo Mantra
I am a 49 yrs old Hindu woman. I was brought up in a religious yet open minded atmosphere at home. My father would chant OM and Gayatri mantra. And my mother would go to Gurudwara and recite Jap Ji sahib( a sikh prayer). We were never forced to perform any ritual or follow a faith, but we absorbed our parents faith in God.
I had a natural inclination toward Lord Shiva. During my growing up years and 29 years of marriage I never experienced a crisis of faith. Till I had to face my elder son's illness. He had gone into deep depression. We shifted our residence and moved to different city and into a very small house.
There was neither the time to shift our luggage nor the place to accomodate our stuff. I had to run the house with whatever little was available to me. There was a total change in our life. From a high society life to this secluded existence was very depressing to me. I was worried for my son and my husband who had left his job because he wanted to be with our son.
On top of it all, our 12 year dog developed a cancerous growth on his rectum. We tried all the medical help available. But nothing helped. Slowly all this started taking a toll on my health. Nothing was going right. That was the time when my elder sister introduced me to 'Namyo Ho Renge Kyo' the Lotus Sutra of Buddhism.
She asked me to chant this mantra as much as possible. She claimed that chanting this will fulfill all my wishes. I started chanting half heartedly. But even that half hearted attempt started showing results. My husband picked up a job. Our son too started responding to medication. But I put it all to coincidence.I would chant only when my sister insisted that I do.
In the mean time our dog's health deteriorated further. His cancerous growth started bleeding. There used to be blood stains where ever he sat. An awful smell filled the house. Everyone said put him to death, but I refused. I was determined to take care of him till the end. But it was easier said than done. I would even shout at the poor child and then get upset about it.
One day I prayed that Snoopy should not smell so awful and chanted 'Namyo Ho Renge Kyo'. And to my utter surprise he no longer smelled so awful. But something in me still resisted to accept the power of chanting and this Mantra. On that fateful weekend Snoopy couldn't stand on his legs. He would try again and again and fall down. He started crying in a pathetic voice. We all tried to calm him down. We called the vet, who told us that the end is near and left after giving Snoopy a dry bath and some injections. But that was a temporary relief.
Snoopy kept on crying and refused to eat anything. That night I sat with him and chanted like mad. I prayed that if he has to go, he must go peacefully. Gradually Snoopy calmed down and slept. I lied down on the floor next to him caressing his head. I kept on chanting in my sleep. At 4 in the morning my husband woke me up and said Snoopy is gone. I looked at Snoopy. He looked so peaceful and as if smiling. There was no smell. His wound had dried up totally and there was not a trace of blood on the sheet.
I fell on my knees and chanted "Namyo Ho Renge Kyo" three times. Yes, Mantras have the power to heal, only you need to have faith. Today my son is looking for a job. We have moved to a bigger accommodation with all our luggage that was lying in the previous station. I am sure everything will fall in place.
