    I’ve been researching this topic for almost 2 weeks at this point and this is the very first write-up which actually is sensible. How come it’s so difficult to access reasonable material with regards to protection these days? Absolutely value the energy you spent getting your ideas in to words so novices just like me can take a step. Will there be a part two to your posting? Many thanks!

    Why do gurus and sadhus when sit on tiger skins when meditation in the caves and forests? Because the snakes will crawl on to the skin of a tiger.
