The Story Of A Dying Bird

It has been a week since my mother was hospitalized last Sunday night. I am still hopeful that she might recover as the doctors have not been able to detect the actual cause after doing tests, X-rays and CT Scan. I have not stopped praying hard each day. In fact, I had never prayed so hard in my whole life like now. 

This morning, I did a short prayer for my mother at my altar, reciting the sutra from a book. I got ready to leave for work and had a terrible fright of my life. I found a very colourful bird dying on my porch. It was still struggling to breathe very hard and looked like dying. I was numbed for so long and had nonsensical thoughts flying in my head. I saw tiny ants crawling to this small dying bird.

I wasted no time and bravely picked up my spirits & started chanting Amitabha's Ferry Mantra 7 times and dedicated to the bird to leave in peace & fly to heavens. I took out the Frankinsence's essential oil from my pocket which I used to massage my mum daily to fight her disease. I poured onto the bird to help bring relief and comfort.

I walked away sadly and wore my shoes.





I turned around and was shocked to see the dying bird standing on its 2 legs again! Whoaaa!
This is the actual photo of the bird. Everyone knows that I am a very superstitious man but I hope the bird was showing me some GOOD SIGNS!!

Viva Burung!

  4. I read your post 3x ! Errr, I feel so happy reading the ending of your post.. Just like reading a fairytale storybook la, starts with: Once upon a time, and ends with: And they live happily ever after..
    The bird looks so nice and "jing sun", very lively, doesn't look like revived from the dead wor.. This is certainly a good sign! More good things coming to you :)

    1. My story was real life non fiction and you read 3X. Muahahahaha
      The bird was really lying with 2 legs pointing up to the sky. I could not even believe that it could wake up and back to life before flying away happily. I had to share this story and timing after my prayers.

  8. oh, the dying bird sprung up back into life!! that was indeed a good sign!! indeed a miracle due to Anay's kindness, who cared to chant for the dying bird and pour the Frankinsence's essential oil around the bird.. now, who on Earth will ever do that?? it's probably a "test" from the up-above, and Anay with such a kind spirit has touched the up-above and hence granted a new life to the dying bird.. and yes, it's a good sign and Anay's mum will recover in no time..
