I am from Malaysia and I work as a Retail Sale Assistant in an Computer shop. Recently my teammate in my Department was tested positive for COVID-19. Everyone in the shop were then required to go for a COVID-19 Swap test. At the same time my niece classmate was also tested positive for the same virus. While awaiting for the test result in home quarantine session for 14 days. I pray and bows to the Shurangama assembly for Buddhas and Bodhisattva, Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Earth Store Bodhisattva and Venerable Master Hsuan Hua for a near miss from the COVID-19 virus for myself and my niece. I have been bowing and praying to the Buddha, Bodhisattva and Venerable Master for 7 years every night. It just a 12 bows per night and I miss 70 nights of bowing during these 7 years. I was hoping that the Buddhas would be most compassionate to allow me and my niece to come out with a non-detected test result and no symptoms during the 14 days self quarantine.
Eventually after 14 days, I and my niece came out without contracting the virus. Although it was a near miss but I taken it as a respond from the Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and Venerable Master Hua. Because of the bowing and prayers every night, I was able to save myself and also save my niece life. She does not know that I pray and bow for her but she came out to be fine. I hope that the act of praying and bowing for her safety in front of the Buddha can be consider a good deed. Most importantly she is safe now and healthy.
I am currently back to work in the front liner situation and I pray that I and my family will continue to be safe from the virus. I also continue to pray that an effective vaccine will quickly be available for everyone in the world as soon as possible. Been praying for the vaccine for a year now but it has yet been available for everyone in the world. Only available in certain country. I am just one person and my prayer’s strength is not sufficient to help 7.8 billion people in the world. .
I hope more people will pray and bow to the Buddha to quickly end the COVID-19 pandemic. Amitoufo.
