Sometimes I wonder why Feng Shui charms or Buddhist amulet works better for others but not for some people. For example, the Vajrapani Ruel, simply having it for a few days garnered a miraculous result for a man who sincerely wants to get a miracle for his mother. The WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, which has a very high personal testimony profile works really well for a lot of people but can’t be denied that for some people, at best it only makes a gradual easing of life for them.
I believe that whether one believes in these things or not, it is bound to work. However, why does it work so well for others and for others it simply acts a paddle for a strong current of the river?
I believe there are a lot of factors that leads to the difference in the result such as karma (both personal and collective), over – all Feng Shui of the house or office (if one is continuously exposed to bad Feng Shui), but I believe one essential ingredient in the difference is sincerity and selflessness.
Allow me to use JS as an example. When he got the Vajrapani Ruel his sincere wish was not for himself but for his mother. Sincerity and Selflessness are both present thus the swiftness of his miraculous experience should not be surprising.
When I reviewed the personal testimonies from readers about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I noticed that sincerity is always present and that a lot of them wished for a good life not for themselves but for someone else, be it a family member or a friend. Of course, there are some wishes that are quite personal, but if you notice, even these doesn’t really stem out of selfishness but rather simply wanting to better themselves.
Allow me to share a story. One common Buddhist practice is the offering of light whether candle, oil, butter or artificial (like using lamps) to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. It is said that this happened in a temple in China. As a sign of his gratitude, a rich businessman would always make light offerings to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, he will offer the annual light offering, which is for the whole year of lighted lamp for certain Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, he will also make monthly light offerings, weekly light offerings, furthermore he will also offer light offerings for special occasions, but more than that he will also make daily light offerings. It is said that he spends thousands and thousands of money for all his light offerings. He’d go to the temple everyday to do this.
One day, when he arrived at the temple, an old beggar lady approached her to ask for some coin. He gave the old woman some coins (for the purpose of writing this story let’s just say he gave him 2 pesos) and then he proceeded to the temple counter to buy and donate money for his daily light offering. Beside him was the old woman also and requesting for a candle so that she can make a daily light offering. She then proceeded to make a donation of 2 pesos. He was surprised and impressed with the old beggar lady so he gave her a few more pesos, the old beggar lady then proceeded to give all the money that the rich businessman to the temple as her donation for the daily light offering. The rich businessman then told him why don’t she leave some money for her to eat and the old beggar lady simply smiled at him and said that she wished to give the daily light offering for the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
They then proceeded to make their light offering. At that time they were only two of them who is doing the light offering, and after they made their daily light offering, the old beggar lady with her single candle, and the rich businessman with his hundreds of light.
Naturally, because he lighted hundreds of candle it took him some time to finish and the old beggar lady has already left when he finished. Just when he was about to step out of the temple hall, a strong gust of wind suddenly blew out all the fire in the hall, except for one candle, and it was the candle of that was lighted by the old beggar lady.
Perplexed the rich businessman seeks the counsel of a temple monk. After having heard of the full story, the monk then said that he believes it happened so that the rich businessman learn a valuable lesson, and that is sincerity and selflessness in doing things. You see while the whole temple may have been lighted because of his numerous offerings, it is clear that he only gives what is convenient for him and unlike the old beggar lady who sincerely gave everything that she has and was selfless in the process not worrying about her food.
The story hopes to draw out the lesson of the importance of sincerity and selflessness and I believe that you will be able to tap into the power of your amulets or charms like the Vajrapani Ruel or the various images of the Buddha and Bodhisattvas that one wear as pendant if this is combined with the spirit of sincerity and selflessness.
