Protection from Evil Influences


A very close one of my family knows tantrik vidya. He can know from a distance what’s happening in whose life. He has told certain things about me, which arose my suspicion as its a little impossible 2 know prrsonal details as he told.

I don’t want to be suspicious about him, as it is a sin to doubt someone without proof, but what is the way to protect us from such intrusions of privacy. I have also been told someone did “tutka” on me.I had a turbulent life for the past 10 years. How do I take God’s help to protect ourselves?

Dear Vineeta,

As you seem to know, tantra can be a dangerous practice, especially for someone who is unfamiliar with its deeper truths. That said, there are ways you can protect yourself from evil influences of all kinds. The great masters are always with us and we can call on their aid at any time. Here are two techniques you can practice:

During meditation, or at any time, mentally surround yourself with light. Think of it as allowing only good to enter. Spend some time visualizing yourself sitting in that light and let it act as an invisible shield, protecting you from all evil influences. Then, as you go about your day, remind yourself of that shield from time to time, allowing in only good and positive influences.

Before leaving home at any time, stand and describe a circle around your body with your hands and arms. At the same time, chant Om Tat Sat as many times as you wish, again visualizing your body circled with light. Also, try to focus your eyes at the spiritual eye (the point between the eyebrows) whenever you can.

The great ones are stronger than tantra. You do not need to be a disciple to call on them. They will help and protect you.
