(BUDDHISTS) How do I keep bad spirits out?

Before you say there's no bad spirits, Jesus and stuff, or you don't believe in things like this GET OUT. I'm a Buddhist and I decided to celebrate my family traditions and all but they're not exactly "intelligent" about religion either. If you have some points and views as buddhist you may add so. Oh, and if you think I'm making fun of any religion I am not. I respect my beliefs and I respect yours too.

Acceptance of all things is the path of enlightenment ..
To keep bad spirits out is to not accept the influence and impact it has on you
To truly extricate them you must first see the interaction and rise above its influence
what question would you ask or ponder if "Bad spirits"
was not in your thoughts?

First say the Hale Marry. Than Get mad. Yell... Cuss if you have too. All that at the top of your voice. Than say the our father and Close with a prayer. They feed off fear, sadness and sorrow. Not anger. They loose track of you through anger. They feel threatened and leave that individual alone. Because they donnot adapt well with anger....
My experience ....

In your holy script has BUDDHA ever described of any bad spirit? Come out of the nut shell and see the world it is loving and smiling. The good and bad spirits are within us, we must be a positive thinker, respect all human beings, love the nature and animals, keep engaged your self engaged in constructive work. Extend your helping hand to the needy. Love your neighbor. LOVE ALL RELIGION ;AND LOVE PEACE.

Thank you sir. Ive heard a man (he is my "Ex" Friend's father who have lived in a temple all his life), say that he believes in bad spirits and such. Ive probably saw him have a book on spirits in his little shrine. Either way thank you for your help and yes peace and live is the way to go :)

Greater is He (Jesus)who is within you, than he(satan) who is in the world!
No one has any power over demons except Jesus(God). So if you dont have Jesus in your heart(like) , there IS NO OTHER!

Buddhism in its essence has nothing to do with evil spirits or things like that. It is about following the eight fold path to enlightenment.
Mahayana Buddhism has ritualized Buddhism into many deities and spirits and stuff like that.
My society is like 40% Buddhist I had these Buddhist monk friends at school. People called them for warding off evil spirits at home. So they went, read the scriptures in Pali that they don't understand themselves and came off. The people believed that the house was now free from evil spirits and so they were.
Therefore its really up to what you believe. I hope you get my point and start being a real Buddhist.

Thank you. I hope you didn't mean the end as a mean way. My friends' father taught me about Buddhism when I was much younger. I haven't been able to see him much and wanted to know all sorts of stuff. Thank you very much again.

First of all, you're welcome.

And no, its nothing mean. Its actually great of you trying to know about stuff you don't know. I was just stressing that the original teachings of Buddhism were not very superstitious. Buddha was born at a time when Hinduism was very ritualized, superstitious and thus difficult to follow for the common people. So Buddhism became popular mainly because of its simplicity and still remains so.

There are two possibilities. You could use Feng Shui or, drop a line to the Ask help desk and book a session with an askorcist.

Here's a Feng Shui link: http://fengshui.about.com/od/thebasics/qt/fengshuibasics.htm
