Mother Recuperated from Cancer and a New Business Because of the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant: Another Personal Testimony of a Reader

Published January 13, 2014 by jptan2012

While I truly believe that the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA pendant that I originally designed for myself has become a very powerful Feng Shui and Buddhist amulet that is a vehicle for people to receive miracles, I still get surprised with the wonderful testimonies that I receive everyday from people who has requested for it.

Allow me to share another such story. But this time, I will not hide the name of the person will use her real name and not just her initials, because she has written about her experience in one of the leading newspaper in the country. Allow me to post Marissa Ferrer’s story below, verbatim, as she has written it on the newspaper. But I just want to add that what’s so amazing here is that I didn’t even remember that I was able to predict the Bohol earthquake and Super Typhoon Yolanda ( Haiyan) that hit the Visayas region of the country. It was Marissa Ferrer who called my attention to it.

How Feng Shui changed my life for the better

As we usher in the start of a new year, everyone’s eagerly anticipating about what lies ahead in the coming months. From one’s career, money-making opportunities to health and relationships, so much can be speculated about how 2014 is going to be, hence the popularity of yearly forecasts, horoscopes and Feng Shui. As these are seen as a useful guide for people as they map out their plans for the year.

For so many years and being a Christian, I used to be quite skeptical when it comes to fortunetelling and Feng Shui, however, recent life-changing events in my life has caused me to be more open about the idea.

Personal trials

Last February, my mother was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer, and if that wasn’t painful enough, she also suffered a stroke in the middle of her chemo therapy. That was the start of a long and tedious road to her recovery, which eventually took a toll on my and my sister’s health and wellbeing.

As the hospital bills kept piling up, we also went through financial problems wherein we had to sell some of our properties just to cover the three months that she was in the hospital. To make things worse, I lost my job at the same time that I found out that I also have high blood. The company I was working for went bankrupt and had to let go of us. I was only able to contribute to my mother’s hospital bills thanks to the help of my loving husband. However, I can’t just rely on him forever as my sister is also not earning enough to help pay for the bills.

With so little hope, this was the time when I was enticed by a friend to check out the website www.sanaakosirickylee.wordpress.com.

I visited the site on the premise that it’s a useful Feng Shui site, in spite of the weird URL, it still piqued my interest.

Exploring Feng Shui practices

Given that I had nothing to lose, I went through the different entries and learned some interesting insights about my current misfortunes. Based on the Chinese astrological system, my mother and I were both born on the year of the goat. According to the blog, a lot of bad things will happen to those born in the year of the goat. To be specific, it was mentioned that people born under this sign like my mom and I, needs to be conscious of our health and finances.

My friend encouraged me to e-mail the blogger, JP Tan, whom I later found out was an aspiring writer, who eventually developed a knack for dispensing Feng Shui advice.

After a few unanswered e-mails, JP finally agreed to talk to me and discuss what I can do improve my current situation. He suggested that I get a Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant. A pendant that he designed to incorporate all the essential enhancers and cures because he got tired of changing all his Feng Shui cures year in, year out.

I’ve read about it on his blog as well as the readers’ testimonials about the pendant. I was already planning to get one for my mom but found it expensive. However, upon my friend’s prodding, I eventually bought one, which took a month to be delivered. This is because each pendant is personalized based on the person’s ‘basket of elements’ which is computed based on one’s birthdate.

According to JP, the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant always works, it’s just that sometimes, the effect is quite gradual for some people while some it can be immediate.

Reaping the benefits

Personally, I’m really happy about how it’s effect on my life, as I was also able to enjoy immediate results.

I never thought that I’ll be given the chance to run my own business. I was unable to find a job after I lost my job of more than 20 years, and I don’t know how to start a business. But a week after wearing the pendant, I bumped into an old college friend, had a good chit chat with one thing leading to another and we are now partners in a food business. The business is doing really well, and we computed that our ROI will be in about two years, but surprisingly, our ROI came in a matter of just six months. We only intended this as a small business, but like JP’s blog it has taken a life of its own and we decided to seize the opportunity.

I also got my mother her own pendant and while she continues her physical therapy, her body reacted well to the chemotherapy considering that she’s already in her 70s. Her doctor was surprised to how well she responded to the treatment and how fast her body is getting back to normal. And yes, I am claiming that this positive prognosis only started when she started wearing the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant.

Given the positive effect that the pendant has brought to my life, now my friend, husband and children, even my sister are wearing the pendant. In fact, my husband just got promoted, a promotion he has been hoping for the last two years and he got it right after he wore the pendant.

JP’s blog ‘Sana Ako si Ricky Lee’, which was never intended to become a Feng Shui blog is like a blessing for me. At first, I struggled to reconcile my own religious beliefs with the Feng Shui practices, but JP said it is better to simply embrace all the good in the things that are happening. And if I had any doubts whether Feng Shui is real or not, his article titled – 2013 – Year of the Water Snake Bazi and Flying Star Feng Shui Forecast: A Balance Year with Fresh Energies (Part 2), which predicted the Bohol earthquake and Super Typhoon Yolanda, really turned me into a believer.

Protecting Your Home’s Energy from the Negative Chi of a Police Station or Prison.

Published November 28, 2013 by jptan2012

In my last post – LIVING NEAR THE POLICE STATION DOESN’T NECESSARILY MEAN YOUR SAFE! – I wrote about how living near a police station doesn’t necessarily mean you’re safer and that these places creates negative chi that may seep out and affect your house.police station2

But I always believe that knowing an ill effect of something is useless unless one can remedy it. This is the beauty of Feng Shui, it gives us tool to counter all these negative things that we can’t avoid.

Please note that ideally we won’t have to live near a police station or a prison. However, due to urbanization, a lot of us will inevitably be exposed to such areas. If this is truly unavoidable, I strongly suggest the following cures:

  1. Put a FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET or KALACHAKRA SYMBOL on your door or to the window nearest the police station.
    I decided to put THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside a test tube type glass holder that I bought in The Bead Shop, then I included the incense ash, Pink Himalayan Salt inside before sealing it. Thank you to DU, a reader and friend who took this photo.

    The Kalachakra symbol is one of the most powerful protection symbol in Buddhism. It actually consists of ten syllable mantra, with it symbolic script condensed into one. The mantra itself is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, the mantra of the Kalachakra is never chanted without the mantra OM AH HUM. Making the complete mantra of Kalachakra - OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. This is the reason why I decided to put the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM on top of the Kalachakra symbol. As mentioned this is a very powerful protection symbol and can be likened to the Scapular of the Catholics. In fact, you'll seldom see a Tibetan Monk with wearing the symbol of the Kalachakra on their body. It may be hidden but most likely they have it somewhere on their body. But you'll never see them have the symbolic scripts tattooed because it is considered extremely bad luck to have a mantra tattooed on your body.

  2. People inside the house may also wish to wear a FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AMULET or the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, which has the image of the Kalachakra, Medicine Buddha and Kuan Kong, all three will provide protection from the negative chi sent out by the police station. Wearing the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT, which has the image of Sun Wukong is also very good, but the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is even pricier than the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. Nevertheless, a reader – friend who went to Bangkok was able to get a rare image of Sun Wukong as a Buddha. If you can get that kind of pendant it will also serve as a very good protection.

Protect Your House from Negative Energies or Negative Beings and Increase Good Chi with the Power of the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras!

The response to the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS is simply overwhelming. If you’ve emailed me and I haven’t responded to it, I would like to ask for apologies. Aside from the regular emails that I receive and emails that I receive about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, now I also receive emails about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS. I was surprised that a lot of people are familiar with THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS but haven’t had the chance to acquire one that has been directly blessed by a monk. What makes me really happy also is that I also received a lot of emails that are concern about making a donation to the monks. By the way, if I haven’t responded to your email, please don’t hesitate to resend it again, sometimes I am unable to go back to older emails that I haven’t read, so it is better to resend. Apologies for the hassle.

One of the emails that I received asked me whether THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS is only effective if it’s worn as an amulet. Allow me to share the other ways one can tap into the powerful blessing of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS.

According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, to make the image of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas more blessed, it is highly advisable to put a copy of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside the image of they’re hallow. One can also put a rolled up copy of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS at the base of the image. Personally, what I did is put the copies of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside an amulet holder and place it at the base of our Buddha or Bodhisattva images at home, with the other I decided to put a string and adorn it like a necklace to the image of the Buddha or Bodhisattva.

Also having the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS on your front door, or living room will ensure that your house is protected from a negative chi. One is also going to be protected from negative wandering spirits. Just make sure it is in an amulet holder, or pouch, if you’re not getting it from this blog.

Hanging a copy of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS in your dining room even its inside an amulet holder will ensure that your family will constantly be bless with wealth.

In our own house, we have a copy of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside a glass amulet holder on all our windows. This is to ensure that we always attract good chi and that negative chi are neutralize right away.

A Warm Response to the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras and A Friend Shares His Experience About It’s Wonderful Blessing!

Published October 3, 2013 by jptan2012

Barely 12 hours after I’ve written about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, which we made into an amulet to help feed monks, several people has since left a comment and emailed me to request for the amulet.

There are 2 people who are requesting for 15 pieces!

Again, I’m a little overwhelmed and amazed as to how fast people respond to my blogs. But maybe I shouldn’t be surprise, right?

Anyway, upon writing about the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS a friend from Singapore called me. He was a little ecstatic about the fact that I was given the opportunity to write about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS.

He then proceeded to tell me his experience about having a FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS that was blessed by a lama or a monk.

According to JG, he got his FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS at a time when he was really down. He was only 23 years old then and recently lost his father because of a heart attack. They were 3 in the family but so far he’s the only who has finished school so the running of the family business was put on his shoulder. However, since they’re well off and he’s still young, he never fore seen a future without his father, at least, not so soon. Also, he had lived a carefree life and never expected to run their business.

As expected with most stories like this, the business started to lose money, until one day their accountant told them that they might have to close down their business. What aggravated the problem was the fact that some of the funds were misappropriated by his father’s brother, his uncle, who helped in the business!!! Her mother wanted to help, but like most Chinese woman her age, at least at that time, women are mostly illiterate.

Out of depression, he went to a temple to ask for Kuan Yin’s help. He said he didn’t even notice that he was crying, until an elderly woman tapped his shoulder to ask whether she could help her. He cried out his heartaches to the elderly woman. The woman convince JG to go to the head monk of the temple, and told her even the monk sees that he’s deserving he’ll give him an amulet that may help him. The woman then told her that she got the same thing from the monk at a time that she’s not sure as to how her life is going to turn out.

JG hesitated but realized that he got nothing to lose. He approached the monk and asked for some blessing and told the monk his woes. The monk brought out a small yellow paper, blesses it, rolled it and gave it to him. It was JG’s very first FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS!

Well, he lost their business, but it’s not necessarily a bad thing, because he soon was able to get a good job, do what he like doing and after a few years he had his own business. He helped sent his siblings to school. They now has convenience in life.

JG said that he’s just happy that more people will now have access to THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS!

Receive Wonderful Blessings of Wealth, Success, Peace and Protection from Two of the Most Powerful Buddhist Amulets (Part 3): Tap into the Power of The Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras and Lama Atisha Protection Amulet and Help Feed Buddhist Monk Initiates

Published October 2, 2013 by jptan2012

As I’ve written in the part one of this series of posts called THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, I mentioned that I’ve been wanting to write about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, however, especially for THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS one will need a special permission from a Lama and that the writing should include a special higher purpose.

While I cannot go into details, I have passed the test and an oracle done by Lama I cans start writing about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, provided that I do it for a higher purpose.

My guru Lama wants to help Buddhist monks or novitiates to be able to have sufficient food and eat three meals a day. However, this is a task that proves to be very difficult to accomplish because there are a lot of monastery who lacks food, a lot of them are in India, especially these are Tibetans that went in exile in India. For example, in one monastery alone, like the Sera Je Monastery who has more than 2,500 monks.

My guru Lama thought that it will be nice to request people to donate funds in exchange of a blessed copies of THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET. For full transparency, please note that the said images are available online and can be downloaded for a small amount of donation for various projects. This is possible because it was the Lamas itself who gave the permission to put the images online so that people can download them for a small amount.

However, what was sent to me by my guru Lama is a blessed copy of the THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET. Again, for transparency, the image alone with being bless are already considered to be holy and effective. But, having blessed by a lama will make it more potent, and perhaps, this is just I, holier. Furthermore, my guru Lama also sent me some incense ash, and pink Himalayan salt, which was all, used in a mandala initiation. The instruction for me to do is to mix a little of all these to the THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET to make it more potent.

Although the instruction for me is to make these Buddhist amulets available to the public through my blog, there was no instruction as to how should I do this other than the instruction that I should include a little of the ash and salt.

The idea of raising some funds to further some Buddhist projects by coming up with holy objects and ‘selling’ them at a certain amount are no longer new. There are a lot of similar projects, and the famous Feng Shui Expert Lillian Too also did the same thing before. She made several prayers wheels which were made available to the public and which the proceeds were donated to a Buddhist cause. However, going back to how can I distribute the amulets with the ash and Pink Himalayan Salt without losing them pose a challenge. However, the inspiration again came from Lillian Too, when she had the special Kalachakra pendant with the Kalachakra sand from a Kalachakra initiation lead by the 14th Dalai Lama. With a reader’s help I went to THE BEAD SHOP, bought a small test tube – like small bottle. Realized that it was the almost perfect holder for THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS with the ash and salt. Ideally, I would have wanted it to be put inside a metal amulet holder, but it is far more expensive. So this for now will do.

I decided to put THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside a test tube type glass holder that I bought in The Bead Shop, then I included the incense ash, Pink Himalayan Salt inside before sealing it. Thank you to DU, a reader and friend who took this photo.

What is initially available at the moment is THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, and it would be available for Philippine peso – Php 2,250.00. I know criticism bells are alarming as to why I’m stipulating an amount for the donation.

But let me explain it.

To feed a monk, 3 meals a day for one month would cost US $10.00! Isn’t that surprising?! For Filipinos in the Philippines, approximately Php 425.00 will last for a month!

I thought why not feed 4 or 5 monks, 3 meals a day for a month! To make the computation easier I decided to just put it at a cost of Php 2,000.00. The additional P250.00 is because of the cost of the holder from THE BEAD SHOP. It actually cost Php 245.00 but I decided to just round it off. 100% of the ‘proceeds’ of this project will go to feed Buddhist monks. Receipts will be posted on this site from time to time. The money will be sent every two months, taxes will be bigger if it’s sent as they come in, and it is going to be tedious.

So what is a typical meal of a monk for a day?

Breakfast

1-2 pieces of large bread (10-12 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick)
Choice of Tibetan or Chai TeaBread and Tea

 Lunch

Tofu
Dahl
Rice or Bread
Vegetables
Fruit

Dahl ready to be offered (served) to the Monks.

Dinner

or thukpa (Tibetan noodle soup)food

If you think it varies, it only varies from MWF and TThSS but basically weekly it’s the same thing. This shows how lucky most of us are.eat

If you wish to support the Buddhist monk and novitiates without getting the THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET available on this site, you can do so by directly donating through www.fpmt.org/projects/fpmt/seraje . Please note though that this is just one monastery, albeit the biggest one, that we are supporting through amulets available on this blog.

Lastly, if you wish to benefit from THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET without getting from this blog or donating to the food fund or want it to be more affordable, you can simply type THE FOUR DHARMKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and/or LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET and you will see links wherein you can download them. Again in the spirit of full disclosure and transparency, the ones that you can download on the web are effective but are not blessed by a Lama. A blessing adds to the potency of its power and the incense ash and Pink Himalayan salt from the mandala initiation will also add power to the amulet.

Also please note that initially what would be made available is THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS.

Receive Wonderful Blessings of Wealth, Success, Peace and Protection From Two of the Most Powerful Buddhist Amulets (Part 2): A Focus on Lama Atisha Protection Amulet

Published October 2, 2013 by jptan2012

In my previous post, I introduced you the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, now allow me to introduce you to another very powerful Buddhist amulet called – LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET.

This is said to be one of the most powerful protection amulet in Buddhism. According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, simply seeing or touching a copy of the said amulet will bring a person tremendous protection against physical harm.

It functions like that of the scapular for Catholics. If a person has this on his body at that time of his or her death, it is guaranteed that he or she will have a good rebirth and will be saved from the lower realms. If displayed inside the house or office, one will be saved from bad influences of other people and it will help create harmony. It is also very good to have this amulet if one is in the hospital, to protect a person from the yin chi of the hospital, and it will also prevent you from getting the attention of the lost souls. Thus, it is also a very good amulet to have to wear when one is going to a funeral or cemetery.

A copy of the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET.

A copy of the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET.

I don’t have a personal story or story that I heard first hand about the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, but one of the most popular story associated by the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, and is widely accepted by the different Buddhist traditions is a story that happened fairly recently. It was suppose to have happened to a young Tibetan man and his family.

As you all know, China has invaded Tibet and a lot of people they are either doing some ethnic cleansing or is slowly erasing the cultures and traditions of the Tibetan who are still in Tibet. The man’s name is Tenzin Choejor ( the truth is Tenzin is a fairly common Tibetan boy’s name because it means ‘holder of Buddhist doctrines’, and the current Dalai Lama’s name himself is Tenzin. I was told that Choezor is not a family name but it is a second name, which means Dharma Wealth. From the name of the man, it can be concluded that his parents are devout Buddhist, but this is not unique because most Tibetans are devout Buddhist.)

Tenzin Choejor’s family is one of the many Tibetans who’ve experienced oppression in Tibet. He was born after the 14th Dalai Lama has fled to Tibet to escape the Chinese oppression, so it can be said that he has never experienced true freedom. He has always long for to escape the Chinese oppression of Tibet but has not dared to do it because all his family are in Tibet. However, his perspective changed when he got married and started to have his own family.

Another modern copy of the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET.

Another modern copy of the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET.

It is said that Tenzin Choejor has planned to escape with his parents, but in a country ruled by oppression and where paranoia is really high, the government soon found out about his plan to escape. It is said that it was possible that another relative or a friend squealed on him. Like most Tibetans who plan to escape or oppose the Chinese government, he was tortured and separated from his family and was put to hard labor for several years. Upon his release, he find it hard to start a new life, because he was considered as an ‘ex-convict’ and even fellow Tibetans who took pity on him will not hire him because they’re afraid that they might earn the ire of the Chinese government. This is when he realized and decided that the only way for him to survive and take care of his family is if they escape Tibet. This time, however, Tenzin Choejor is more careful and he only confided to his father, who told him to ask for the blessing of his grandfather, his father’s uncle, for a blessing because it will be a long journey, a very difficult one, and if caught they might be killed on the spot or if they’re not caught they might die of freezing in the mountains. His father also cautioned him to think again of his plans because Tenzin Choejor’s children then aged 10 and 7 might not survive the trip. However, Tenzin Choejor knew that’s the only way for them to have a better life, and he thought it is better to risk their lives that forever live under the Chinese oppression.

Tenzin Choejor great uncle is one of the few monks left in Tibet who has personally met the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, and because he is monk in a place under Chinese rule, it is expected that he is very poor. So he has nothing to offer Tenzin Choejor but the blessing that Tenzin Choejor seeks from him. He performed some Buddhist protection ritual, which was improvised to adjust to their situation, but then took Tenzin Choejor aside to tell him that there is one thing that he would like to give Tenzin Choejor.

He told Tenzin Choejor that he believe that the only reason he was able to escape the Chinese’s physical oppression, unlike most monks, is because of an amulet that he has kept for a long time. He told Tenzin Choejor that he believes that the amulet is one of the reasons that he remained alive under the hands of the Chinese communist government. He then gave Tenzin Choejor a leather cloth where the image of LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET is printed. He told Tenzin Choejor that the amulet would keep his family safe. It is said that Tenzin Choejor initially refused to accept the amulet, but his great uncle insisted and told him that he has no need for the amulet because of his old age and that he is ready to part with his body.

Tenzin Choejor then proceeded to escape Tibet. It must be noted that after the initial exodus of Tibetans from Tibet, the Chinese communist government has intensified border security, making it harder for all Tibetan planning to go to exile to leave Tibet. There is no exact statistics as to how many people have been killed or captured and tortured just because the seek a better life. Tenzin Choejor armed with determination and faith in his ‘religion’ decided to set out on an escape with his wife and two young children.

lamaatishaprotectionamulet3On his way to India, Tenzin Choejor encountered several problems, but somehow they manage to get away with it. Among these two things are an encounter with a Chinese soldiers and a fight against nature.

First, on their escape, they literally came across some Chinese soldiers, and because of fatigue and coldness because of the freezing snow, he and his wife noticed them a little too late. They came across two drunken Chinese soldiers, and was almost apprehended, in fact, a gun was already pointed at them. Should the soldiers decided to shoot at them, the soldiers won’t get reprimanded because there is a standing order to shoot to kill all people who are trying to escape. Fearing for the life of his family, Tenzin Choejor used his body to block his wife and kids, and instinctively touched the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET given to him by his great uncle and started to call on the Buddhas. According to their testimony, Tenzin Choejor’s wife didn’t know where he mustered her courage to talk to the soldiers.

Tenzin Choejor’s wife knows how to speak Chinese, being born and raised under the Chinese communist government; Chinese has been her second language. Tenzin Choejor knows the language also but because he grew up in the countryside he understands it better than he can speak. His wife on the other hand knows how to speak it but not fluently either. But she managed to address the soldiers and pretend that she is Chinese, and when asked why Tenzin Choejor’s himself doesn’t speak she told them that her husband is deaf – mute. There are many loopholes to her cover, like how can she explain their looks and what are they doing in the mountain, but because it was dark and maybe because the Chinese soldiers were drunk they let them go. Tenzin Choejor believes that it is because of LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET.

The second ordeal was when they were in the mountain, Tenzin Choejor’s second child got really ill. Without medicine all Tenzin Choejor and his wife can do are to call on the help of the Buddhas. Tenzin Choejor decided to take off the amulet and placed it on top of his son’s body. Needless to say, the son got healed.

After weeks of travelling in the mountain they finally got to the border of Tibet and India, where they plan to go in exile and seeks the Dalai Lama’s protection. But little did they know that India besieged by thousands and thousand of Tibetan exiles and without a place to put them has made it harder for Tibetans to go inside their country. Though they don’t understand each other, Tenzin Choejor understands the problem with their facial and body language. He started to touch the amulet again and hope for the best. Soon they were met by a Tibetan who took their story. Three days after they were put on a holding area, luckily with food, they were told that they could stay in India.

According to Tenzin Choejor, and these were acknowledge by the highest ranking lamas, it was because of the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET that Tenzin Choejor and his family survived the ordeal.

But who is LAMA ATISHA?

A Thangka image of Lama Atisha.

A Thangka image of Lama Atisha.

For that allow me to share his story using Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s own words. The following was lifted from the archive of FPMT.

Having a little bit of understanding of the life story of Atisha is very beneficial for our mind, so we can try to understand the teaching he wrote. By understanding Atisha’s life story and how he practiced Dharma and achieved realizations, devotion arises and we can feel that his teaching is most precious and pure. 1

Actually it is a very long life story, and it is divided into three parts. In order to have some idea about the great bodhisattva Atisha and how he benefited sentient beings, there are stories about his birth, his home, his birthplace and his early life. The stories explain how he achieved great knowledge and realizations with that holy body. Then after achieving the knowledge and realizations of the path, he benefited the teachings and helped sentient beings— he led the disciples and sentient beings to happiness.

Atisha’s birthplace was in Bengal, India. He was born as a prince and his family was extremely wealthy. He was surrounded by servants and workers, and there were 100,000 people just in his palace. The palace had thirteen golden roofs and 25,000 golden banners on the top, and there were also many pools, like in the West. At the palace there were 25,000 pools and beautiful parks, gardens of beautiful flowers that people could enjoy, seven bridges, and special trees that only grow in India.

When Atisha was three, he became an expert in general education—in astrology, letters, the brahmas, these things. He also became expert in discriminating the inner and outer being, so his parents wanted him very badly to take the place of the king. They tried very hard, but after some time he left with 300 horses, disguised as an army going to fight.

Many people went into the forest with Atisha to seek the guru. He took many teachings on refuge and bodhicitta, and then the guru sent him home to check up and try to understand the suffering of life. This happened three times. He came back, the guru sent him to another guru, and that guru sent him home to check up on the shortcomings of worldly life. His parents tried very hard to have him marry and take the place of a king. They invited all the beautiful women of the country to a party, and let them all dance around, but it didn’t work.

Atisha explained, “ There is no difference for my mind between this palace and a prison. There is no difference between beautiful, expensive clothes and the torn cloth in the garbage. There is no difference between delicious food and dog meat and pus. There is no difference between princesses and mara women—devil women.” Why devil women? Because they transform into beautiful bodies and cheat us. His parents listened to him.

Atisha followed 157 gurus perfectly and received many teachings, initiations and Vajrayana teachings. Once, while he was at home, Tara, the female aspect of Buddha, instructed him in a dream not to be attached to the samsaric happiness of worldly life. After this, Atisha went to see his guru. Then one day, after receiving many initiations, he thought, “There is no Vajrayana teaching left that I don’t know. I have become the most learned.” He felt a little bit of pride. That night, he had a dream that many female dakinis— transformations of buddhas who have high realizations of tantra—showed him many Vajrayana texts that he had never seen before. This made him lose his feelings of pride.

Atisha wanted to receive Mahamudra realization in his lifetime, by living in Vajrayana conduct. One of his gurus, Rahula, suddenly realized with his psychic power that Atisha was thinking this. Without any resistance, Rahula appeared in front of Atisha and instructed him, “What are you doing, forgetting all the sentient beings by leaving them? Take ordination and do great work for the teachings. This will be greatly beneficial for the teachings.” So, Atisha took ordination when he was twenty-nine years old. He was persuaded to do so by his guru and also by the buddha’s female aspect, Tara, Guru Shakyamuni Buddha, Maitreya Buddha and many other buddhas and Vajrayana deities such as Heruka, in his dreams.

After some time, when he was going around the Bodhgaya stupa—the temple in India, the most holy place where Guru Shakyamuni Buddha received enlightenment— above the stupa, in space, he saw the transformation of a young woman asking an old woman a question. At that time Atisha was concerned with quickly receiving enlightenment, and in space the young woman was asking the old woman, “What path should we practice in order to quickly receive enlightenment?” The old woman said, “Train the mind in love and compassion, in bodhicitta.”

Again, when Atisha was going around the stupa, there were paintings on the walls that talked to each other. One painting asked the other what path we should follow to reach enlightenment quickly, and the other answered, “Train the mind in love and compassion, and bodhicitta.”

Again, when Atisha was going around near Nagarjuna’s caves, he saw the statues of Buddha communicating, saying, “Train the mind in love and the compassionate thought, bodhicitta.” There was one ivory statue, and it said, “Yogi, if you want to quickly receive enlightenment, train the mind in love and compassion, and the thought of bodhicitta.” Many statues spoke like this.

Atisha went to see Guru Serlingpa, and he spent about twelve years taking the complete teachings on bodhicitta. In the presence of Guru Serlingpa, he received the actual realization of bodhicitta. Then Lama Serlingpa predicted that he should go to Tibet, the northern snow land.

At that time, there was a lot of degeneration of the teachings in Tibet. The people did not know how to practice the teachings, and they were confused about the practice of sutra and tantra together. The king of Tibet, Lha Lama Yeshe Ö, sent twenty-one boys to India to study Dharma and all of them except two died from the heat. These two came back to Tibet and told the king that everyone was talking about Atisha, the pandit, and that they should invite him to Tibet to help. These two translators’ names were Rinchen Sangpo and Legshey.

As soon as Lha Lama Yeshe Ö, the king of Tibet, heard the name of Atisha, incredible devotion arose in his mind, and he decided to invite Atisha to Tibet. He sent many gold offerings to India to invite Atisha, but it didn’t work. Then afterwards, he went himself to find gold for Atisha, and he was captured and put in the prison by an irreligious king who didn’t want the spread of Dharma in Tibet.

King Lha Lama Yeshe Ö’s nephew, Jangchub Ö, came to see him in prison. The irreligious king told Jangchub Ö, “I won’t free your uncle until you find gold the size of his body.” So, Jangchub Ö found enough gold to reach up to his neck, but still the irreligious king was not satisfied. He said, “If you don’t bring gold the size of his head, I won’t let him be free from prison.” Again, Jangchub Ö went to his uncle, the king of Tibet, and explained all these things.

The imprisoned king of Tibet, Lha Lama Yeshe Ö, explained to his nephew that since a lot of gold was offered to the irreligious king and he was still not satisfied, Jangchub Ö should not offer this king even one handful of gold. King Lha Lama Yeshe Ö said he was now very old and did not have long to live, and it would be more beneficial for his nephew, Jangchub Ö, to take the gold. He said to Jangchub Ö, “I don’t care if I die in prison. Take all this gold and ask Atisha to come to Tibet and spread the Dharma.” Then the king sent a message to Atisha through his nephew, saying, “I gave up my life to invite you to Tibet. Please guide me with your compassion. What I have in my mind is only for you to come to Tibet and spread the teachings.”

The imprisoned king sent the message with Jangchub Ö with a suffering, frantic voice, and then he passed away in prison. His nephew sent a translator with many gold offerings to invite Atisha, but the kings and abbots of India wanted Atisha to stay there. Finally, Atisha received permission and he came secretly to Tibet and helped spread the Dharma there. According to his teachings, he wrote the Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment there.

Atisha spread the pure Mahayana teaching like the rising sun, and all conflict, ignorance, and wrong conceptions were destroyed. His text was translated into English by some Tibetan lamas and other translators. I am reading the translation of this teaching because it is extremely beneficial. It is so short. Atisha did great work and brought so much benefit to India and Tibet. In India he destroyed many followers of other religions, wrong paths and wrong conceptions. He did great work.

These days, many young people from the West have the chance to hear the teachings and to understand and practice these meditations on the gradual path to enlightenment. They can find satisfaction in their lives, and they can make their lives meaningful and happy. They integrate it in their own mind, and they understand that there is a chance to make their lives meaningful. All these things are due to the kindness of Atisha, the great bodhisattva.

This great bodhisattva, Atisha, lived in discipline, and had the realization of moral conduct. He kept the 253 precepts purely, and on the basis of that, the bodhisattva’s precepts, the moral conduct precepts and the Vajrayana precepts. He had unshakeable, firm, one-pointed concentration that could last for years—even if hundreds of rockets were flying nearby they couldn’t disturb or shake his meditation. He had perfect realization of shunyata, the absolute nature, and he achieved high tantric realizations, seeing himself in the form of deities.

Atisha had high tantric realization without projections, and he did not see ordinary places—we see an ordinary house built of mud or cement, an impure place, but Atisha had only pure projections and pure view, and he always saw the view of the mandala of the deities. He had high Vajrayana realizations and he was able to transform even kaka into nectar and poison into medicine.

We can meditate like this to increase devotion to Atisha’s teachings. We can do checking meditation according to that. We may find it difficult at the beginning of the subject, and it may take time to understand, but by checking and understanding more and more the various meditations and teachings, gradually it will become clear within our mind.

Please note that Choejor is also spelled as Choezor and that the story from the archive of FPMT is part of Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s teaching of the life and work of Lama Atisha at 9th Kopan Course in 1976.

Receive Wonderful Blessings of Wealth, Success, Peace and Protection from Two of the Most Powerful Buddhist Amulets (Part 1): A Focus on a First Class Buddhist Relic Called THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS

Published October 2, 2013 by jptan2012

This is going to be one of my longest post, because this is something that I’ve wanted to write about for the longest time, but only recently got the permission to do so.

I’ve known about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET for quite some time now and I’ve always wanted to write about them, however, THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET both requires a special permission for one to be able to write about them.

This is a sample of Stupa where one can put a copy of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS.

This is a sample of Stupa where one can put a copy of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS.

In one of my trips to Singapore last year, I met with my guru Lama, and when I informed him about my blog and my desire to write about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, he said that I can only write about them once he has given me the permission and once we have ensured that writing it will benefit my readers as well and that I will write for a bigger purpose. In short, I cannot write about them only because I believe in THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET and that I want to write about it. He also added that I need to pass several ‘test’ before I can write about them. I cannot go into details as to what are those tests are but it involves an oracle to be done by my guru Lama.

As you can discern, I was already given the permission to write about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, this is because I did pass the test, and the oracle indicated that I could start writing about them because this has a higher purpose. I’ll write about the higher purpose in the third part of this series.

I will first write about the THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRA. It is not just one of the most powerful mantra in the world, but more than that it is also considered as relic, and it is one of the most powerful relics in Buddhism.

THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS is perhaps one of the most powerful Buddhist relics. It is considered as a first class relic and is considered by high lamas, like Lama Zopa Rinpoche, to be one of the most important mantra and sacred relics in the world.

THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS is compose of four (4 ) different relic mantras, and these are the following:

  • STAINLESS PINNACLE DIETY
  • SECRET RELIC
  • ZUNG OF THE EXALTED COMPLETELY PURE STAINLESS LIGHT
  • 100,000 ORNAMENTS OF ENLIGHTENMENT

To be completely honest, it took me years of on and off lessons before I understood the importance of the THE FOUR DHARMKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, but even then I don’t think I understand it completely.

However, what I’m sure of is having this relic is a great wonderful blessing of incomparable magnitude.

For those who are currently facing some difficulties in their life, THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS is sure to help make things easier. It’s also good to create good karma.

I first heard about the wonderful power of THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS several years back, I was already a student of Feng Shui then but not yet a serious student of Buddhism. This happened in Malaysia. I was looking for a Prayer Wheel that used a microfilm; this was when Prayer Wheels are still mostly made of ordinary paper. When I wasn’t able to get what I was looking for, the seller told me that more than Prayer Wheel; I should get myself a FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and use it as an amulet. That was the first time I heard about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, and the seller told me about it.

According to the seller, he used to be poor, as in poor as one can be, his mother and himself lives on the street and they were times when they are only able to eat once – a – day and only if somebody will give them their scraps.

One of the places that they frequent is a Buddhist temple, and there a monk, would always give them food whenever he is around. In exchange, his mom would always ask him to help out in the temple. And although the monk doesn’t have much either because of his vow of poverty, and would only eat what was donated to him, he would always make sure that he has something for the seller and his mom.

One time, the monk gave him a 3 pieces of bread (mantou – a siopao dough without the meat). He only ate one, and when asked why, he explained that he would give 2 pieces to his mom. This earned him some praise from the monk. He then left to look for his mom to give the bread. On his way to look for his mom, who is doing some menial jobs in nearby market in exchange for a small amount of money, he came across a boy who looks really hungry. According to the seller he took pity, and decided to give a piece to the boy, although he all said that he had second thoughts because a piece of bread, for somebody who is always looking for food like them is a very big thing. Nevertheless, he said since he knows how it is to be really hungry; he decided to give it to the boy. Little did he know that the monk followed him to give him some fruits. The monk saw what he did and asked told him to bring he should ask his mom to go with him to the temple the next day.

When the seller and his mom arrived at the temple the following day, a monk told his mom about the generous act of the seller, who was a young boy then. The monk told his mom that he is giving both of them a powerful mantra written on yellow paper that they must wear on their body at all times. The said paper was already rolled and put in a leather pouch.

According to the seller, as soon as they started wearing the mantra on their body things started to change. Things started to get better. His mom found a regular job, and he got to go to school with the help of a businessman who owns the company where his mother works as a janitress.

As proof, the seller showed me the mantra given to them by the monk; it is now enclosed in a gold amulet holder, which he wears as a pendant. According to the seller, he has since married and was gifted with 11 children, who all became professionals! He humbly shared that the poor homeless boy now has 2 houses in the US, a house in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Germany! Of course, not to mention his 4 houses in Malaysia. He simply works because he doesn’t want to grow senile and his store also becomes a venue for him to share Buddhist amulets to people who can’t afford them.

It was only later that he found out that the mantra given to him by the monk is a blessed copy of THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS.

I like his story but didn’t put so much thought about the THE FOUR DHARMKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, until my guru Lama gave one copy to me and told me about it’s marvelous benefits.

It has the power to save us from harm and bless us if we strive to have a good heart.

It also has the power to bring us to enlightenment, something that every Buddhists aspire for.

It has the power to give us good rebirth.

It has the power to grant us enough financial wealth luck.

If you don’t know whether a place your going to has good or bad Feng Shui or Chi, wearing a copy of THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS on your body has the ability to protect you from all the negative chi or bad effects of the bad Feng Shui of a place.

Most Buddhist scriptures states that THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS should be put inside a stupa for it to be effective, and most of the teaching of Lama Zopa Rinpoche indicates that it should be put inside a stupa. However, the Dalai Lama said that although a stupa is preferred, it is not a requisite for THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS to be effective. A stupa is not the most practical thing to have by most people. It’s quite difficult to acquire one. And as we can see with the story of the seller, THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS was effective even if it was just place inside a leather pouch. My own copy of the THE FOUR DHARMKAYA RELIC MANTRAS was initially just placed inside a red cloth; I later transferred it to a metal amulet holder.

Allow me to post here what Lama Zopa Rinpoche has to say about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS. Please note that this was originally intended for other monks or Lamas so you have to make some adjustments in its interpretation to make it more applicable to a layperson like us.

The Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras and Their Benefits

by Lama Zopa Rinpoche

The four dharmakaya relic mantras (Stainless Pinnacle Deity, Secret Relic, Zung of the Exalted Completely Pure Stainless Light, and 100,000 Ornaments of Enlightenment) are a sacred relic. They are the highest relics of Buddha, relics of the dharmakaya. Other relics, the ones that we normally see, such as relics of the robes or parts of Buddha’s holy body, are secondary relics. These four mantras are the highest relic. After I learned about the unbelievable benefits of each of these mantras, I had them written down and we printed many. These are normally what we should put inside stupas, statues, and so on. These very special mantras give unbelievable power. If you have put these mantras inside a statue, the devas will come to worship that holy object three times a day.

By putting these mantras inside a stupa, even a bell that is offered to the stupa brings unimaginable benefit. For example, the negative karma of all sentient beings who hear the sound of that bell is purified. They are liberated from the lower realms. Their negative karma is purified and they receive a good rebirth. In that way, there is unbelievable benefit. It makes it so easy for sentient beings to purify negative karma and reach enlightenment.

Also, if you circumambulate a stupa that has these mantras inside even one time, it purifies the negative karma that causes you to be reborn in all the eight hot hells. The negative karma that causes you to be born in all the eight hot hells – from the lightest down to the heaviest, most unbearable suffering hell realm – is completely purified by going around a stupa with these mantras inside just once.

The Very Essence of the Extensive Benefits of the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras

The benefits of circumambulating and so forth are extensively explained, including the benefits from the tantric side, in the sutra called Arya Compassionate Eye Looking One and in the sutra called Compassionate White Lotus, and so forth.

Stainless Pinnacle Deity Mantra (Tsugtor Drime)
As explained by the Buddha in the Kangyur, there are skies of benefits for making even just one prostration, circumambulation, or offering to a holy object containing the mantra of the Stainless Pinnacle Deity (Tsugtor Drime):

It purifies completely the karmic obstacles of the five uninterrupted negative karmas (killing one’s father or mother, killing an arhat, causing blood to flow from a buddha, and causing a schism in the Sangha).

One will be completely liberated from the hell, hungry ghost, and animal realms and from the evil-gone realm of the yama world.

One will have a long life.

Like a snake changing its skin, when leaving the body, one will have the fortune to go to the blissful realm (i.e., a pure land).

One will never be stained by the smell of the womb.

All one’s wishes will be completely and exactly fulfilled.

If you put this mantra inside a stupa, you will never be reborn in the lower realms and will have a pure life until you achieve enlightenment. You will have good rebirths up until enlightenment is achieved.

This is most amazing. We have so many human problems that we can’t bear, so how could we bear the sufferings of the lower realms, such as being born as an insect, much less being born a hell being, animal, or preta? When human beings have problems, they can communicate. They can try many ways to resolve the problems. But animals and pretas cannot do this, and their suffering is so much greater. They have unbelievable problems, so there is no question about the hell beings whose suffering is unimaginably heavier.

So it is unbelievably precious that we can be freed forever from these sufferings, just by putting the Stainless Pinnacle Deity’s mantra inside stupas (100,000 copies of this mantra should be put into stupas). From now on, we will have pure lives and higher rebirths up until enlightenment is achieved.

So there are incredible benefits from building stupas and putting these Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras inside. It is so easy to purify all the heavy negative karmas from beginningless rebirth. Anyone who has the opportunity to put this mantra inside a stupa is therefore the most fortunate being in the world. They create the cause for long life, as well as to be reborn in a pure land. Of course, this brings a lot of merit, but that didn’t happen without cause and effect and conditions, meaning we created a lot of good karma in the past.

Secret Relic Mantra (Sangwa Rigsel)
Also, as explained by the Buddha in the Kangyur, if you have this mantra inside a holy object, then all the buddhas will abide in that holy object. Therefore, there are skies of benefits for making even just one prostration, circumambulation, or offering to a holy object containing the Secret Relic mantra (Sangwa Rigsel):

One purifies the negative karma of the ten non-virtuous actions and so forth, and will be completely liberated from the eight hot hells, including the unbearable hell (Avici). One also purifies the five uninterrupted negative karmas

One will never turn back from peerless enlightenment. (That is, one will never go down; one’s life will always be directed toward enlightenment. This is irreversible; one will never go in the opposite direction.)

One will always attain higher rebirth.

By printing the Secret Relic Mantra, if you are given the blessing to print it, just once, you collect the same amount of merit as making offerings to 100,000 x 10 million x 100 billion buddhas. This was told to Vajrapani.

Having made offerings to as many buddhas as there are in ninety-nine sesame seed pods – that is how much merit you create and you are always guided by that many buddhas.

This is just a drop from the unimaginable benefits of this mantra.

Zung of the Completely Pure Stainless Light (Özer Drime)
There are many Zung of the Exalted Completely Pure Stainless Light mantras, and they are all contained within the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras. These mantras have unbelievable, mindblowing skies of benefit. As explained by the Buddha in the Kangyur, there are skies of benefit in making even just one prostration, circumambulation, or offering to a holy object containing the Zung of the Completely Pure Stainless Light (Özer Drime):

If one offers even a bell to a stupa containing this mantra, all the sentient beings in that area, animals or humans, by hearing the sound of that bell will be completely purified of the five uninterrupted negative karmas.

Normally, committing the five uninterrupted negative karmas causes one to be reborn in the lowest hot hell, which is extremely heavy suffering, but having this mantra inside a stupa purifies it all. This shows how unbelievably powerful this mantra is. Since even hearing the sound of a bell offered to such a stupa has incredible power to purify, there is no question that any insect or other being who sees or touches the stupa is purified of negative karma. Even just thinking about the stupa purifies the five uninterrupted negative karmas. That is amazing! It is so powerful! It is like a small flame that eventually grows into a fire that burns many thousands of miles of forest or entire cities.

Even water, rain or dust that just touches the stupa is so blessed that it purifies all the negative karmas of the insects on the ground who come into contact with it. And

the wind that touches such a stupa purifies the negative karmas of people or animals that it contacts and brings a good rebirth. Even if the shadow of the stupa touches people and insects, their heavy negative karma is purified.

From the Kangyur:

If this mantra is put inside a stupa then any being, including evil transmigratory beings, who sees the stupa, hears of the stupa, touches the stupa, or who is touched by dust or wind that comes from this stupa, will be free from all negative karmas. They will be born in the realms of happy transmigratory beings1 and they won’t be reborn in the lower realms.

Everything that touches the land the stupa is on becomes meaningful, including the rain that touches the stupa and then flows to the ground and touches worms. The worms’ negative karma is purified and they will receive a higher rebirth.

If there is a stupa containing this mantra in the center of a road or above a road and cars can pass under it or go around it, this is unbelievable purification. It doesn’t only purify the negative karma of this life, it purifies the negative karma of many past lives and plants the seed of enlightenment.

The Destroyer Qualified Gone Beyond [Shakyamuni Buddha] advised the Bodhisattva Great Sattva: Eliminating All Obscurations, Owner of the Secrecy, Vajra in the Hand [Vajrapani], the four guardians, the deva Unforgettable2 Owner [Brahma], and the devas of Tsangri, the Maha Deva, [the Hindu God Mahashora], and so forth: “You, the capable holy beings, I hand over this heart of the king of the secret mantra. Always keep it, put it in a jeweled samato [container]. Then proclaim it to all places. Continually reveal it to sentient beings. If you make sentient beings hear and see this mantra, their five uninterrupted negative karmas will be purified.”

Finally, as explained by the Buddha in the Kangyur, there are skies of benefits for making even just one prostration, circumambulation, or offering to a holy object containing the mantra of the 100,000 Ornaments of Enlightenment (Jangchub Gyänbum):

By putting even just one mantra of the Ornament of Enlightenment inside a stupa, it brings the same merit as having built 100,000 stupas – whether the stupa is gigantic like Bodhgaya or tiny like the size of a finger. Then, if you dedicate this merit for sentient beings, for their happiness up to full enlightenment, they receive unbelievable benefits and you receive unbelievable merit.

One collects the merit of having made offerings to all the buddhas, to all the Dharma, and to all the Sangha. Why? Because when you make offerings to a stupa

containing the 100,000 Ornaments of Enlightenment Mantra, you are not only making offering to a stupa. It becomes an offering to all the buddhas, the Three Rare Sublime Ones – all the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha that exist in the ten directions, in any universe.

After a person has died, chant that person’s name during the exact moment you put the mantra inside the stupa (before placing it inside the stupa, the mantra should be rolled correctly and covered in yellow cloth). Then you make offerings to the stupa – either actual offerings, or visualized, as in the seven limb prayer. If you visualize offerings, visualize all the flowers inside and outside, all the food offerings, all the water offerings, all the light offerings, everything! You can use all the offerings at my houses in California and Washington, as well as all the offerings at all the FPMT centers.

Buddha said to Ananda: “I explained this sutra for those beings who have very little merit and no devotion, for those who are overcome by doubt and cannot believe in the Dharma. For those sentient beings, I explained the 100,000 Ornaments of Enlightenment mantra.” That means Buddha explained this mantra for us.

Buddha also told Ananda: “In future times, if ordained ones don’t read this sutra that contains the benefits of this mantra and don’t make offering to this mantra, which makes it so unbelievably easy to purify the negative karma that causes one to be reborn in the lower realms and to accumulate the merit to achieve enlightenment and then offer extensive benefit to sentient beings, those ordained ones will suffer in the same way as householders. But if one listens to this teaching and then makes even one stupa with this mantra inside, one makes offering to all the 84,000 teachings of the Buddha.” This means that this mantra is an antidote to the 84,000 delusions, and one creates inconceivable heaps of merit. This is the same as reading the sutra called Tongpa Denpe Do (Sutra of the Ornamented Trunk)

When you put these four dharmakaya relic mantras inside a stupa, even mentioning the name of a person or animal that has died and praying for them brings them a good rebirth, such as birth in a pure land. That person will definitely be liberated from the lower realms. It is very powerful. You can also do the same for very sick people, making dedications for them to be healthy. As you put the mantras inside the stupa (or holy object), you should do the seven-limb practice and make the dedication for that person. This is a very powerful method for healing.

Holy objects such as these liberate sentient beings continuously twenty-four hours a day, every day. They purify the causes of the lower realms and bring sentient beings to the higher realms where they can meet the Dharma and then reach liberation and enlightenment.

Creating holy objects with these special mantras inside and making them available to others brings constant, unbelievable benefit to sentient beings. As soon as stupas and statues of the Buddha are made, they have the power to cause sentient beings to do actions such as circumambulating, prostrating, offering, and so forth, which then become virtuous actions creating the cause of enlightenment, even if those actions are done with the eight worldly dharmas3 and non-virtuous thoughts. These holy objects make it possible for sentient beings to create the cause to meet the Dharma and actualize the path. So even though we who are making these holy objects do not have realizations such as bodhichitta or emptiness, nor have we reached any of the bodhisattva bhumis, the holy objects we make still have the power to liberate sentient beings from the oceans of samsaric suffering, to actualize all the realizations of the path – Guru devotion, the three principles of the path, and the two stages – and then to achieve enlightenment.

These are illustrations of the activity of the Buddha’s unbelievable compassion toward us sentient beings and are but a few of the drops of Buddha’s unbelievable methods to liberate sentient beings quickly from the sufferings of samsara.
