Fifteen Merit Days: A Gift From the Heaven to Help Protect Us From the Ill Effects of the Year! (Part 2)

Published February 5, 2016 by jptan2012

In my preceding post, which is also the 1st part of this post, I talked about what I call the ‘Fifteen Merit Days’ that will happen on Feb. 8, 2016 to Feb. 22, 2016. As mentioned in that post, it is very rarely that the Chinese New Year and Tibetan New Year will happen at the same time, and because of this it created a special Fifteen Merit Days that can help protect us from the ill effects of the year and also create good karma for us.

Any good deeds are going to be have doubled or tripled merits.

But today, allow me some of the traditional way to earn merits on the said 15 Merit Days.

Chant the following mantras and Buddha or Bodhisattva names:

  1. Amitabha Buddha Mantra (OM AMI DEWA HRIH)
  2. Shakyamuni Buddha Mantra (OM MUNI MUNI MAHAY MUNI YE SOHA)
  3. Medicine Buddha Mantra (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA)
  4. Mantra of the Compassionate Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara / Kuan Yin (OM MANI PADME HUM)
  5. Mantra of Ksitigarbha Buddha (OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM)
  6. Name of Samantabhadra Bodhisattva (NAMO TA XING PU XIEN PUSA)
  7. Mantra of Bodhisattva Manjushri (OM A RA PA TSA NA DHIH)
  8. Wish Fulfilling Manta and Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra (OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT & OM HANU PASHA BHARA HEYE SOHA)
  9. Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani (OM VAJRAPANI HUM)
  10. Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrasattva (OM VAJRASATTVA HUM)

Recite the following Sutras:

  1. The Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra (Heart Sutra)
  2. The Diamond Cutter Sutra
  3. Sutra of the Medicine Buddha
  4. The Noble Stack of Auspiciousness Sutra
  5. The Buddha Speaks of Amitabha Sutra
  6. The Sutra on Impermanence

To do all these, it usually takes me 2 hours to finish all. You can omit some of the mantras or sutras mentioned on the list. However, remember the more you are able to do the more merit you’ll get. I especially recommend this to people who are sick or have a family who are sick and people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger and also those who stay in the Northeast.

It will also be good if you can make vegetarian and fruit offering in the temple, as well as light and incense offering. Prostrating in front of an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva will also likewise add some merits.

Please note that you can add other mantras or sutras. Especially the Mantra of Goddess Tara, Yellow Dzambhala, and Maitreya Buddha.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.

Fifteen Merit Days: A Gift From Heaven To Help Save Us From The Ill Effects of the Year! (Part 1)

Published February 4, 2016 by jptan2012

For those of you who have read my post about my forecast this coming 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey would know by this time that while 10 of the 12 signs enjoy a generally positive to very positive outlook, except for the Ox and Tiger, the year’s forecast base on Bazi or Paht Chee chart is not very nice, there are several destructive pillars.

Also, the center star for the year is the #2 Flying Star, which for those who are familiar with Feng Shui knows that when a Flying Star lands on the center it becomes the ruling star. This means that’s going to be the pervading energy of the year. But as I repeatedly say, and again this is something that is so simple that it can be verified by a simple Feng Shui believer, the Illness Star is not simply a star that causes illness but rather it also causes accidents that may lead to long term illness or being bedridden. For this, my Guru Lama has come up with a special amulet that is good for combatting the ill effects of the ruling star of the year but also for generally to combat illness and to protect us from accidents. He is calling this amulet the Illness Suppression Amulet although I prefer calling it Illness and Accident Suppression Amulet.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

And there’s also the already dreadful #5 Flying Star (also known as Wu Wang or Five Yellow Star), which is made even stronger this year because it landed on the Northeast sector. This is a flying that send jitters to all those who are familiar with Feng Shui. In fact, I have seen so many people and business destroyed by this star. And all people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger are greatly affected, and because of this they also become more susceptible to the Illness Star. But people whom whose bedroom or office is in the Northeast sector of the building or Northeast sector of the property are also likewise extremely affected. To top it off, houses or buildings whose entrance is facing the Northeast are also not spared. People with Kua number 2, 6, 7, 8 are also affected. Unfortunately, the only cure for this is the Five Element Pagoda made of metal. You should put one in your office or bedroom or entrance and more importantly you everybody who is affected regardless whether you have the 5 – Element Pagoda for ‘display’, you should also wear the Five Element Pagoda gold pendant. It has to be gold because you need the gold’s yang energy also to help enhance the energy of the Five Element Pagoda. As mentioned in my previous posts this is something that is extremely difficult to find, as of now, I only know of two possible people who can supply it. One is Lillian Too’s online store and the other one is a reader who happens to know the jewelry industry and decided to make one. I’m currently wearing one made by her. I personally find it beautiful and although I felt it was a little big, bigger than the one on Lillian Too’s online store, I find the craftsmanship quite good. You can get in touch with her by emailing her.

However, I know that a lot of my readers despite having the said cures would want to ensure that they get the utmost protection. Also, not everyone will have the means to acquire the said cures or amulets. But I have good news for everybody. I think fate has provided us with an opportunity to stock up on our merits to help serve as buffer and protection from the said ill effects of the years both from the Paht Chee chart of the year, Flying Stars and a few from the 24 Mountain Stars!

The first fifteen days of the year are considered as one of the most auspicious times of the year, that is why there are some stores who doesn’t open shop until on the 16th day of the first lunar year. This is the same with the Losar, which is the Tibetan New Year. Their first 15 days is also considered as one of the most auspicious time of the year. They often call these first 15 days as merit days, because if you create good deeds during these days the merits of these deeds are doubled or tripled. The Chinese New Year or Lunar New Year and the Tibetan New Year very rarely happen at the same time. In fact, since I started studying Feng Shui I don’t remember them happening at the same time. But it is truly amazing that this year the Chinese New Year and the Tibetan New Year will happen on the same date – February 8, 2016! This is truly a ‘once – in – a – blue moon’ occurrence, and this rare occurrence an alignment of auspicious and meritorious stars for the first 15 days of the Lunar New Year! From Feb. 8, 2016 to Feb. 22, 2016 we will have a chance to stock up on good merits to help create an extended protection or even blessings for this year of the Fire Monkey! This is truly heaven’s way of helping us! We might as well take advantage of this Fifteen Merit Days!

So how do you take advantage of the said Fifteen Merit Days, which I truly believe is a gift from heaven to help protect us from the ill effects of the year? As sincerely as possible, do good deeds on these days. Donate to a charity or church or temple. Feed the poor. Physically volunteer in the orphanage. Plant a tree. Adopt a stray dog or cat.

These are just some of the ways that you can create good merits. But in the part two of this post, allow me to share some of the traditional ways that Buddhists, especially Tibetan Buddhists do to increase merit.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.

Another Simple Vajrapani Miraculous Story: How A Simple Request to the Vajrapani Ruel Showed Evidence of Deceit!

Published February 3, 2016 by jptan2012

Allow me to share with you a simple Vajrapani Miraculous Story. I know that my blog and my email and even my mobile phone are full of stories shared by readers who got the Vajrapani Ruel and experienced some miracles. What has been written here is but a fraction of the personal testimonies about the Vajrapani Ruel. Some of them are outrageously miraculous while others are gradual, but equally wonderful and magnificent.

Today, allow me to share a simple Vajrapani Ruel miraculous story. I said simple because when at a lost, JV, a 33 – year – old entrepreneur, decided to believe that the Bodhisattva Vajrapani thru the Vajrapani Ruel will show him the truth.

Vajrapani Ruel

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

JV is putting up a business. He is partnering with another young entrepreneur. He fined his potential partner to be intelligent and quite frank, which is a trait that he really appreciates. However, 3 days before they were to sign a contract, a cousin found out about the said potential partnership and warned him about the his potential partner. According to the cousin, the person is a liar, and a swindler. However, his research shows otherwise and he is unable to trust his cousin because his cousin himself embezzled some money from his uncle and aunt and is considered as the black sheep of the family. JV was torn on what to do because the amount of money involved is quite big and the warning of his cousin bothers him. But he felt that his potential partner has been honest and quite up front with him. It will be unfair for him to call off the partnership base on a single ‘accusation. But if it were true then he might lose a big amount of money!

A few hours before they were set to meet and sign some documents and transfer money, JV decided to hold his Vajrapani Ruel and say a little ‘request’. He ‘told’ the Vajrapani Ruel to show him the truth immediately! 23 minutes after that he got an sms from his potential partner, and apparently it was a wrong send, in the message it was quite clear that his potential partner was suppose to send it to his wife, telling her that once they get the money they can simply run off to their province! What a miracle! He got what he requested! A clear indication whether he should push through with the business or not.

Some Easy Ways to Cook and Eat Nian Gao or Tikoy!

Published February 1, 2016 by jptan2012

In my preceding post I talked about the importance of having the Chinese New Year Sticky Rice Cake more popularly called as Nian Gao or Tikoy here in the Philippines. Today, allow me some simple ways to cook it.

One of the most common ways of cooking it is by dipping it in egg and frying it a little. It really just takes a few moments because the Nian Gao or Tikoy is already cooking in the first place.

Second way of cooking it is by wrapping it on a Lumpia wrapper then frying it. You might opt to put a little sugar. But I personally think putting a little more sugar makes it really sweet.

Third way of cooking it is by wrapping it on a Lumpia wrapper and adding a little slice of cheddar cheese. I like this a lot. This one tastes really good.

Fourth way of cooking it is by wrapping it on a Lumpia wrapper and adding a small slice of fruits like strawberry, jackfruit, and mango.

Fifth way of cooking it is by mixing it with some coconut milk, just like Ginataan bilo – bilo. For non – Filipinos who are reading this please Google Ginataan. This is one of the best way of eating a Nian Gao or Tikoy.

Display Nian Gao or Tikoy On the Eve of Chinese New Year and Eat It The Day After Chinese New Year!

Published January 30, 2016 by jptan2012

People have been asking me what are some of the Chinese New Year ritual that one can do. In our household, although, unfortunately because I’m working on my book and had to work closely with my publisher and editor in Kuala Lumpur I might not be able to spend Chinese New Year at home this year, we always have Nian Gao or what is more popularly known as Tikoy here in the Philippines.

When I first learned about Feng Shui, I have always insisted and made sure that we will have Tikoy or Nian Gao (the Chinese New Year Sticky Rice Cake) on our table, because I remember that the very first thing that my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong, and the one in Singapore said is to always make sure there is Nian Gao on the table on the eve of Chinese New Year and to eat it a day after Chinese New Year.

Why?

This is because a Tikoy or Nian Gao with it’s round shape symbolizes perfect Man’s Luck, one of the Luck in the Three Lucks of Feng Shui, namely Heaven’s Luck, Man’s Luck, and Earth’s Luck. Furthermore, because a Nian Gao when uncooked (the one that we buy on the store is already cooked, we just cook it again by frying it), is a little smaller than when it is cook, so it symbolizes prosperity. Lastly, it’s stickiness symbolizes harmony.

Having this on the table on the eve of Chinese New Year, which this year happens on February 8, 2016 and all through Chinese New Year, then eating them after Chinese New Year is a symbolic way of enhancing your Man’s Luck, creating prosperity and harmony.

Baby’s Illness Cured With the Illness Suppression Amulet: A Personal Testimony of A Reader

Published January 29, 2016 by jptan2012

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you would have known already by now that this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey is ruled by the #2 Flying Star, which is also known as the Illness Star. You may also remember that the term Illness Star is also quite misleading because the star also brings in accident that may lead to long-term illness or liability. It is because of this reason that my Guru Lama decided to make a special amulet called Illness Suppression Amulet; I personally prefer calling this amulet as Illness and Accident Suppression Amulet. This particular amulet is made by consecrating it thus making it more powerful. And it is available by making a special donation of an image of a Buddha. To understand this better you might want to read a post entitled – THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

babyI have written about all these things several weeks back. Today, I’m happy to share the very first simple testimonial about the said amulet. This was shared with me by a reader who got the Illness Suppression Amulet because her baby is getting sickly and as a mother she naturally got quite concerned.

You will see her name in the screen grabbed of her message to me, so I won’t be giving her an initial. Paula, is somebody who got the Vajrapani Ruel before. A few weeks ago she called me up a little concerned because her baby all of a sudden had diarrhea and also vomits. However, a visit to the doctor proved to be futile because he can’t seem to find what’s wrong with the baby. So just before my trip again to Kuala Lumpur, where I’m working on finishing my books, she met with me to get the Illness Suppression Amulet. And I told her to roll/rub the Illness Suppression Amulet over her baby’s stomach.textP

Then a few days ago, I received a message from her (see picture). Allow me to translate and rewrite it here:

Good morning, JP. Are you still in the Philippines? Just want to share. Remember, I got an Illness Suppression Amulet from you last Monday? I rolled it on top of my baby’s tummy and she got better after 2 days! Unfortunately, she had cough and cold after that, but I decided to continue rubbing the Illness Suppression Amulet, and she’s now getting better! You know…her recovery seems so fast! Thank God! Of course that is with the help of the Illness Suppression Amulet!

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess.

However, even in Ongpin they sell fake. Recently though I came across an online seller who has a FB page. So far I have observed that their stones are really nice and relatively affordable. A lot of my readers who got their crystals or stones from them are quite happy with the quality that they got. You can check them out by clicking here.

Please note though that I’m in no way connected to them or know them personally.
