What religious faiths say about demon warfare

I am trying to know what ALL religions say about spiritual protection. So if you know what one or all of them say, please let me know (best if you cite the exact place you got it from).
PS, this can be protection from spirits or hexes or energy, etc.

Thank you so far, and also if anyone has anything on the following religions: Islam, Hinduism, Taoism, Buddist, I would like to hear about it. I think I have Christian spiritual protection down - the 'Armor of God' and praying+fasting for some demons. Resist the devil and he will flee, and break the curse of the Law by being under grace, pray always in the Spirit. That pretty much sums up the essentials I think, so I am looking for other religions

As far as Buddhism is concerned this seems applicable. From "The Perennial Dictionary of World Religions" and quoted in "Buddhism of Wisdom and Faith"

"In secular western thought awareness of psychological projection as a source of supernatural being has served to demythologize demons, goblins, angels and saints and rob them of their power. The Bardo Thodol [Tibetan Book of the Dead], however speaks of the deities as "projections" but never as "mere projections". The deities are present and must be dealt with religiously ... not just by intellectual insight."

The deities are of two kinds, peaceful and wrathful. How does one deal with them because they both serve the positive function of reminding us that we need to wake up to our true nature. It is not a matter of welcoming one kind and protectiong ourselves from the other. The most important thing is to become aware of their presence and function in our life. Once we know why they are there we can allow them to complete their purpose after which the will fade away on their own.

Buddhism is NOT a religion, it's a set of rules, on how to life this life.

Religion is one of the greatest forms of mass control.

So, where's it going then?
To lazy to use your mind?
Buddha was a real person,
He really existed,
Not like the other religions that rely on fictitious characters, and fairy tales.
Whose sole purpose was to control a large mass of the population, and blind them with lies and ignorance.

I guess some people have to believe in demons, I say let them. They must have a need for that.

Hi

In my humble opinion people should be free to believe what they want to believe and yet at the same time respecting other peoples beliefs. There is no absolute truth as nobody can prove one thing or the other. What we believe is mostly based on our upbringing, place of birth and how evolved we are as spiritual beings.

I also think Buddah, Jesus and all the other prophets were enlightened beings whose sole purpose on this earth was to teach us about love. Their message of love may have been interpreted by the people at the time to suit the customs of the time. In other words there would have been little point teaching people who have never seen a light how to use computers. They wouldnt be able to comprehend something that they could not imagine,therefore, there are a lot of metaphors in all the religious teachings of the time.

The teacher appears when the student is ready, the more evolved we are the better the teacher becomes also.

People today would find it hard to believe in hell if the bible was written today because we are better educated and able to discern for ourselves. The days of blind faith are over and spirituality for some has become a personal journey not something that is taught but something that comes from within.
