This Samatabhadra protection card was designed by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Rinpoche explains:
"This Samtambhadra protection is from the great lama
Thugyen Chokyi Nyima. It eliminates any bad things and creates both outer and inner success. The main deity is the Bodhisattva Samtambhadra. Above are the three types of deities: Chenrezig, Vajrapani, and Manjushri. On one side is Hayagriva and the other side is Lion Faced Dakini. Below are two kinds of Garuda (Multicolored and Black Garuda).
It is said by Vajradharma, who is the all knowing one, that this instruction can stop any kind of harm. By displaying this protection in the house those activities which have no meaning will become meaningful, and virtue will be created in the house. In this way, having this protection in the home becomes good feng shui, a way of creating an auspicious environment."
Use: When you get this protection, first consecrate it well. The protection can then be put above the front door. It can also be placed in different parts of the house; above windows, to the side of front door (outside) etc. It is important that the image is protected and can not be destroyed by the rain.
