 One of our Buddhist teachers recently related this story to us. Since this scripture is not easy to find I will post it again. As the story goes: Indra was defeated by the king of the demi-gods, and full of fear went to the Buddha for help.

The Buddha told him to recite the Sutra called Powerful Armor Which Is the Summit of the Victory Banner in order to make himself invulnerable to harm from others. It is equally important for meditators and not just warriors to know that such a remedy to removes obstacles exists. Since it is a powerful sutra to uphold here it is:

Homage to all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas!

Thus have I heard:
At one time, Shakyamuni was dwelling in Indra’s celestial realm of the thirty-three, sitting upon a rock slab as white as wool. At that time, Indra, the king of gods, had become defeated by the demi-gods. Having been completely defeated and frozen with fear, he speedily went to where the Buddha was sitting. He bowed his head to Shakyamuni’s feet, and addressed the Buddha as follows:

“Oh Lord, I went into battle against the army of the demi-gods, and I was defeated by the king of the demi-gods, T’hag-Zang. I was completely defeated, as were all the god’s armies from the realms of the thirty-three. Oh, Shakyamuni, how can we become victorious now?”

The Buddha answered:

Indra, king of gods! Recite the Sutra called, Powerful Armor Which Is the Summit of the Victory Banner, which makes one invulnerable to harm from others. Previously, when I was a bodhisattva, I also received this Sutra from the Tathagata Zhengyi Mit’hub Pa’i Gyaltsen. Having received it, I also taught it extensively and perfectly to others. There is no doubt that if you recite this, there is no name of fear. Not even for an instant will you experience fear, timidity, hair-raising fright, or bodily harm.”

    The Buddha spoke:

    TATYAT’HA OM JAYA JAYA VIJAYA VIJAYA JAYA PRAHINI SHANKARI SHANKARI PRABHAD KARE

    For I and all sentient beings:

    SARVA SHATRUM DZAMBAYA DZAMBAYA SATAMBAYA SATAMBAYA MOHAYA MOHAYA BHAGAVATI

    SVAHA!

King of gods! By reciting this exalted Sutra, Powerful Armor Which Is the Summit of the Victory Banner, also known as the Mantra Which Makes One Invulnerable to Others, whether engaged in battle, fights, conflicts, or wars, wherever you go, you shall not fear and you shall be victorious.

If you attach this Sutra to the peak of a victory banner, or wear it around your neck, you will be protected from every human leader or powerful warrior. The Buddhas and Bodhisattvas will manifest in the form of beautiful ladies in front of you, who will grant you fearlessness and protection. You will become glorious and overwhelm all opposition. You will enjoy continuous fortune, purity, great fame, glory, and prosperity.”

Shakyamuni having spoken thus, the world with Indra the king of gods, devas, humans, demi-gods, and ghandharvas rejoiced and praised what the Buddha had said. This completes the Sutra called Powerful Armor Which Is the Summit of the Victory Banner.
