Around the end of the sleeves and trousers of my Dharma garment there are embroidered dragons. Thus we commemorate the inspirational experience I had long years ago when in the early morning of the day when I performed fire puja to the Great Northern Heavenly King for the very first time. Then in a dream I saw small dragons, and simultaneously one each forcefully surrounded each one of my wrists and ankles, just as the ornaments one sees on a statue of Vajrapani.
About one year ago in a dream I again saw small blue dragons embroidered on both ends of the collar of a shirt, and the dragons, even though winding, stretched vertically upwards. Later I mentioned this inspirational experience to some disciples in Bei Jing, China, and they started to look for tailor and embroiderer to make such a shirt accordingly. I figured that, since many years ago in a dream I was granted the Dragon Ball of a Dragon King to swallow, therefore now there had been such auspicious omens of "leading dragons" (In Chinese a leader is also called "Ling Xiu", Collar Sleeve, because grasping collar and sleeve can lead a person into certain directions).
Today the shirt with dragons on collar and sleeves arrived here in the mail, so I recorded its inspirational causal origins here for all to share.
