Need I say more? These are just some of the obvious effects of the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month. To understand it further please do read my previous post entitled – WHAT EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE.
Yes these things happens also even if its not the Hungry Ghost Month, but what you should look at here is the intensity and frequency of these things.
To protect yourself please read my post – PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE ILL EFFECTS OF THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE.
However, it’s very important that you don’t just protect yourself, we should do something for the world. We should be able to do something to help avert further tragedy.
I have been very busy the past few days and did some unavoidable traveling but I got a call from my Guru Lama who instructed me to write that several temples are offering the recitation of the mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha and Medicine Buddha, each mantra will be recited 100,000 times a day! I know 2 temples that are doing the same thing here in the Philippines with several pujas and offerings being done to help counter the worldwide effect of one of the worst Hungry Ghost month ever.
You can ask your local temple, if not you can do it at home. For most people 100,000 chants of each of the Buddha and Bodhisattva mentioned can be overwhelming but according to my Guru Lama do 10,000 times for each and it will help a lot. If that is still a little too much for you just chant them as many as you can something and anything is better than nothing.
If possible, just before 6pm, get a handful of rock salt and just toss it outside of your house. Do this everyday until Sept. 5, 2014.
Please remember to specifically dedicate after saying mantras to the protection of the world from the hungry ghost month.
It is the hope of different monks that by doing this a lot of the ill effects will either be averted or tamed.
But reciting the said mantras will protect you as well.
Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion: OM MANI PADME HUM
Mantra of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha: OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM or OM PRA MANI DANI SOHA or NAMO KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA or NAMO DI ZHANG WANG PUSA
Mantra of Medicine Buddha: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE (BHEKANDZYE) RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA
