When one align to the truth of this Sutra, either through reading, reciting, or sharing, celestial beings will offer their protection and blessings, and one is at one with all Buddhas and their disciples. How can it be so? It is because all Buddhas and teachings arise from the truth of this Sutra, therefore when we align ourselves with this same truth, we are at one with all Buddhas, and their disciples and celestial beings. From author’s own experience, even the writing of the name of the Sutra on a white board would radiate the light of truth and power. Such is the wonder of this Sutra.

REVERING THE PROPER TEACHING, TWELVE
“Furthermore, Subhuti, wheresoever this sutra or even one of its four-line stanzas is expounded, you should know that all devas, men and asuras should make their offerings there as if the place was a Buddha stupa or a Buddha temple. How much more so if someone is able to receive, hold (in mind), read and recite the whole sutra!
“Subhuti, you should know that such a person will achieve the highest and rarest Dharma. Wheresoever this sutra may be found the Buddha and His respected disciples will be there also.”
