This is one for fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (who think her methods could be somewhat less violent). The reader will need to decide for himself whether this fits in with his conception of Buddhism. What it is is an example of a Protective Spell. The genuine article.

This is one that will be of interest to anyone concerned about race relations. Although not a dialog with the Buddha, but with one of his chief disciples, it clearly deliniates the Buddha's position that it is the nature of a man's behavior that differentiates him from other men, not the color of his skin, or the class into which he is born.

An inspirational sutta. How far would you go to follow your beliefs?

The Four Teachings of Gotama that inspired Ratthapala:

The World is an ending thing that does not last.
In the World there is no refuge or protection.
In the world there is nothing that is one's own, passing from the world all is left behind.
The World is never satisfied, always wanting more it is the slave of desire.
