Auralite: A Gift Of Light From A Reader

Published January 21, 2015 by jptan2012

Today, I would like to share with you about a gift I received from a reader and friend. For those who have been reading my blog for quite some time, you might remember me talking about Atty. B, who happens to be one of the readers I can consider that has become a friend, although we seldom get to talk with each other.

Even if we don’t get to email or send each other text messages, I would always think of Atty. B from time to time. The first time I met Atty. B, he strikes me as a very serious student of Buddhism and Feng Shui. What I mean is he goes beyond delving into Buddhism or Feng Shui simply because he aspires for material growth. True enough, after several months of not being able to talk with each other, I think, maybe even a year, I found out that he has gathered enough good karma to meet his own guru. The particular lama that he met is in fact Filipino, so he need not go through the hassle of translating what is being said.auralite

I was fortunate enough to have been gifted by Atty. B with an Auralite. I feel so blessed that he was kind enough to give it to me as a gift, and what’s more I received it at a time when I needed healing. I’m not an expert on Auralite, but I know that an Auralite has the capability to extend physical and auric healing.

If you wish to know more about the Auralite, all you have to do is simply Google it. However, this is what I found on the website called THE AURA CHAKRA COMPANY:

Auralite 23 Crystals are about 1.2 BILLION Years old, having being formed during the Meso-proterozoic age, at the time, when multicellular creatures, first emerged and began to flourish.

It has been said, that Meteoric impacts during this time, brought rare metallic ores to the surface, where they eventually dissolves and were incorporated into the structure of the growing Amethyst Crystal, now called Auralite.

Because of the sheer amount of elements and minerals found in the crystal, it is like a bridge to the divine, helping you to connect easier with your guides and Angels, and also bringing a calmness to your life, that you never felt possible before. It will also teach you the best things about yourself, and also show you where you may be going wrong.

Auralite enhances healing, personal development and intuition extensively and on many levels and can really only be appreciated once it’s been held.

Auralite-23 Properties:

REMOVES the ‘ticking clock’, replacing it with space to breathe and relax, bringing opportunity for inner solitude.

TONES DOWN anger and cools hot tempers, it teaches the being to think before speaking or acting for the self, and towards others. Also this is a stone that can help to remove prejudice and unnecessary judgment.

TEACHES of making good use of knowledge, and integrating it into needful areas of the self, and into life itself.

BOOSTS communications and connections of the Angel awareness, as it is a stone that has an open channel to the Angelic Realms.

ALLEVIATES tension, headaches, eyestrain; muscle discomfort and muscle spasms. It can also be of help to vascular health, bringing an improved function and healing.

SOOTHES nerves and anxiety, as well as helping to lower the trigger of panic attacks or to bring comfort during times of shock and distress.

CURES sleep disorders that are closely related to Insomnia, or where it is Insomnia alone, with no known cause.

SUPPORTS during meditation, astral travel, past life regression, and to the being that connect with spirit for the help of the self and of others.

CONNECTS to its keeper like a twin spirit. This stone teaches, “All is as One”, reminding of how alike one-another is to each other despite outer differences.auralite2

You see it’s a very powerful crystal and receiving it as a gift, while doesn’t make it more powerful, gives it a good chi from the generosity of the giver. I’m just so happy to have my very first Auralite.

More than that, in a span of a week, I received 2 gifts from my readers. One if this gift from Atty. B, and another one is from a reader in Singapore. I shall write about her AC’s gift in my succeeding posts.

For now, thanks a lot Atty. B!!!!

The Vajrapani Ruel Stories: The 17th Karmapa’s Relatively Easy Escape; The Miraculous Release of a Tibetan Monk From Chinese Prison and Labor Camp; And The Wealth Luck Bestowed Upon the Repentant Prodigal Son

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.

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.

In my previous post entitled – THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL AMULET IN THE BUDDHIST PANTHEON CALLED VAJRAPANI RUEL – I talked about the very rare and yet powerful Vajrapani Ruel. In that particular post, I mentioned how difficult it is to get some personal testimonies about the said ruel because the last time it was made was a generation ago, which is roughly about 40 – 50 years ago. Most people who have the Vajrapani Ruel either had it half a century ago or got it as an heirloom from their parents or grandparents.

However, today I would like to share with you some of the stories shared with me by my Guru Lama about the Vajrapani Ruel.

Although unconfirmed, it is widely believed and accepted by a lot of Tibetan Buddhist that His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, who is the 17th Karmapa recognized by the Dalai Lama, has a Vajrapani Ruel when he made his escaped from Tibet to India. For those who are familiar with his story, his escape from Tibet to India to avoid being a dummy of the Chinese government was quite controversial because Tibet was already conquered by China when he made his escape. Unlike His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama whose escape was made when China was just about to ‘formalized’ its control of Tibet, the 17th Karmapa’s escape was made when Tibet was already officially under China’s rule. Not only did he managed to escape but he did so with ‘relative’ ease compared to that of the Dalai Lama. Nobody could believe that he can make that escape and because of this doubts were raised as to whether he actually is a Chinese spy. The rumor was largely circulated by the other sector that claims to be the 17th Karmapa.

However, for those who happen to be within the circle the recognized 17th Karmapa and the 14th Dalai Lama believes that the relative of the escape of the Karmapa is largely can be attributed to him carrying the Vajrapani Ruel. The recognized 17th Karmapa, whose given name is Apo Gago (Happy Brother) and who was renamed to Ogyen Drodul Trinley Dorje when he was recognized to be the reincarnation of the 16th Karmapa lived inside Tibet for the first 14 years of his life. He was born in 1985. The Chinese government recognized him as the 17th Karmapa but wanted to control and use him to lend legitimacy to their ruling of Tibet. But in 1999 the 17th Karmapa announced that he would have to go on a spiritual retreat inside his official residence. What followed were a daring and also a not so ‘humble’ escape. He went out of his and together with a number of people made their escape to Tibet. Unlike the 14th Dalai Lama’s escape which was mostly on foot, the 17th Karmapa’s escape involved cars and a helicopter, which made it quite high profile and of course easier. The use of helicopter was risky because the Chinese government could have easily detected the helicopter and shot it down. Nevertheless, as mentioned the 17th Karmapa’s escape is believed to have been made relatively easy by the fact that he has the Vajrapani Ruel.

The 17th Karmapa during his daring escape took a picture to document it.

Obviously, the story of the 17th Karmapa is a story worth sharing on an entirely different post.


 

Another story of the Vajrapani Ruel is about Palden Gyatso. Palden Gyatso is a Tibetan monk born in Tibet in 1933. When the Chinese government invaded Tibet, Palden Gyatso was taken into custody by the Chinese government and was continuously subjected to torture and sent to labor camps. Nobody thought that he would ever survived and that he would even be seen alive again, because for 33 years he was extensively tortured.

Palden Gyatso is considered a high-risk political prisoner because even while inside the Chinese prisons and labor camps and even he is constantly subjected to extensive torture as part of his reeducation, he never faltered and continuously practices the Dharma. Those who know about his situation believes that the Chinese government will surely not release him because it will be a sign of weakness on their part, not to mention that they were unable to ‘reeducate’ him.

However, in 1992, Palden Gyatso got a conditional released, he then subsequently made an escaped from Tibet to Dharamsala, India. This came as a surprised also, and there are various stories shared as to why he was released. Although, Palden Gyatso in his autobiography made no mention of the Vajrapani Ruel, it is widely accepted that somebody took pity on him and smuggled a Vajrapani Ruel to Palden Gyatso, and the rest was history. He was released and then he was able to made an escape from Tibet to India. To this day, Palden Gyatso continues to be a voice against Chinese oppression of Tibet and Tibetans.


 

Another story shared with me by my Guru Lama involves that of Malaysian Chinese. The story of the main character of this testimonial somewhat reflects the story of the Christian story about the Prodigal Son. For that let’s just call him Prodigal Son.

Prodigal Son (PS) is the eldest child and only son of a very rich and famous Malaysian Chinese businessman. PS was being groomed by his father to become his heir but when he reached his 20s PS proved to be unworthy to be his father’s heir. He parties a lot and would sleep with different women to the point that he fathered 6 children all out of wedlock and from different women!!!! The breaking point for his father was when he got involved in a controversial group known for being some sort of an illegal drug syndicate! As expected his father disowned him and let him go.

PS continued to live his own life and as can be expected from a person without discipline became a failure. Almost 20 years after he left his family, he was forced to beg for his father’s help again. However, his father no longer has compassion for him and was unable to forgive him.

While his father was unable to see his sincerity and unable to forgive him, PS’s grandfather saw that his grandson was sincere in repenting his folly. He urged his son to forgive PS but PS’s father was not swayed by his argument. It was then that PS’s grandfather, knowing that the Vajrapani Ruel is also a very powerful wealth amulet for he himself attributed his own wealth to this, decided that he would be the one to help his grandson. He doesn’t have much money of his own anymore because of his age, but he then decided to give his Vajrapani Ruel to his grandson instead of his son. He believes that his grandson needs some wealth luck to help him get a new life.

After acquiring the Vajrapani Ruel from his grandfather, PS gradually was able to set up his own business and straightened his life. Furthermore, when his father saw how he has changed, his father welcomed him back to the family, and currently, PS now helps run the family enterprise with his younger sister.

The World’s Most Powerful Amulet in the Buddhist Pantheon Called Vajrapani Ruel

Published January 8, 2015 by jptan2012

As a Feng Shui blogger and to some extent a very reluctant Feng Shui consultant ( I still cringed with the term consultant being associated with me ), I find it easy to write the articles I post on this blog. The reason being is because I only write about things that I have studied, experienced, or would have heard a first hand confirmed testimonial.

This post is quite different, I have known about this topic for quite some time, I even aspire to have one, but the truth is my knowledge this thing is quite limited, I haven’t experienced it’s effects, and because the last time this thing was created was 40 to 50 years ago, then there would be very little confirmed first hand testimonial about this. I’m talking about the Vajrapani Ruel.

Briefly speaking, a ruel, for the lack of appropriate terms, a ruel is a kind of Buddhist amulet. It is believed to be the most powerful form and the most effective amulet in the realm of Buddhism.

But before we go into Vajrapani, I believe it is worth talking about Vajrapani first.

Who is Vajrapani? The straight answer is that Vajrapani is a Bodhisattva, a Bodhisattva that is in the level of Avalokitesvara (aka Kuan Yin) and Ksitigarbha. However, simply saying that Vajrapani is a Bodhisattva in the level of Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin and Ksitigarbha, simply won’t do him justice.

Vajrapani is one of the lesser known but equally powerful and compassionate Bodhisattva!

Vajrapani is one of the lesser known but equally powerful and compassionate Bodhisattva!

For those who understands Buddhism as a loving and calm type of religious order will be surprise that arise a Bodhisattva like Vajrapani who is famous for his wrathful form. To be completely honest, there are a lot of wrathful deity or images in Buddhism, but the wrathful form does not represent the fact that they are angry but more of what they represents, a lot of these wrathful forms represents protection and wealth.

Vajrapani is one of the Bodhisattvas that are highly revered in all Buddhist tradition. But he holds special position in the Lotus family. The Lotus family is headed by Amitabha Buddha and is surrounded by Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin, Manjushri and Vajrapani. Vajrapani is also a member of the Vajra (thunderbolt) family, which includes Yamantaka and Akshobya, which is the lord of the Vajra family.

Vajrapani is also one of the earliest Bodhisattva that appeared in Mahayana Buddhism. As mentioned he is being part of the Lotus family, he automatically became a member of the three protective Bodhisattvas that surrounds the Buddha. Kuan Yin or Avalokitesvara manifests the Buddha’s compassion, Manjushri manifests the Buddha’s wisdom, and Vajrapani manifest the Buddha’s power. Furthermore, Vajrapani also manifest the power of the 5 Tathagatas.

Amitabha Buddha has also given Vajrapani of becoming the protector and guide of the Historical Buddha, or Shakyamuni Buddha when he was still a human Bodhisattva.

As if that is not impressive enough, Vajrapani is the only the Buddhist Bodhisattva or to be more accurate deity (as he was then still a deity) to be mentioned in the Pali Canon. He is also the only Bodhisattva worshipped in Pure Land Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism, and in Shaolin Monasteries.

Vajrapani is also one of the first Dharmapalas mentioned in all Pali Canon texts. Dharmapalas are ‘fearsome’ beings in wrathful form, sometimes with several heads, and hands, and feet. They usually have red, black or blue (such as in the case of Vajrapani) skin. They will always have very fierce expressions and sometimes they come with fangs. But what one needs to understand is that Dharmapalas are depicted in such form to communicate their strength and their power over all evil. But Dharmapalas, despite of their terrifying look, are actually Bodhisattvas or Buddhas that still embodies high compassion, they only act wrathful for the benefit of sentient beings.

Vajrapani has a wrathful look to symbolize a yaksa to help generate ‘fear’ in sentient beings to loosen up his dogmatism and also to communicate to lower beings that he is protector Bodhisattva. He’s in a warrior pose to signify his immediate action. His loincloth is made of a skin of a tiger, the head of the tiger can still be seen somewhere on his left knee. Vajrapani’s right hand brandishes a Vajra (thunderbolt) to signify wisdom in fighting off his opponents, and at the same time to signify the capability to cleans the surrounding of negative chi or energy. It also signifies one of the greatest natural weapons in the universe. His left hand holds a magical lasso, which he uses to bind demons or evil intent. Around his neck is a serpent necklace, to signify his power to heal and to bring good luck. He also has a third eye, which depicts his ability to see through what is not obvious. He is also always depicted with a whole body flame halo, because this represents awakening and suppression of hostile energies.

vajrapaniIt is important to understand that unlike in Taoism were there image represents their ‘physical form’, images of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas that we see are just representation of the things that they want to communicate. Needless to say, enlightenment can’t be represented in any form. So the Zen images of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, just like the fierce images of the wrathful Buddhas or Bodhisattvas are all ‘misrepresentation’.

Surely, we cannot imagine all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas sitting around all day on lotuses meditating. The truth is our mind won’t be able to grasps even a fraction of the concept on how they work, that’s why they have to be translated through images, that in turn gathers some of their energy by virtue of it representing them.

In the Pali Canon texts, Vajrapani was described as a Yaksa (sometimes spelled as Yaksha). A Yaksa is a kind of warrior and guardian spirit, like a General. He became a Bodhisattva because of an incident that happened to Shakyamuni when he was still a living Bodhisattva.

When he was still a living Bodhisattva, Shakyamuni went into meditation, where he encountered a Brahmin entity name Ambattha. Ambattha was really rude to Shakyamuni because he believes that Shakyamuni was of a lower social caste. He literally taunted Shakyamuni. Shakyamuni then also questioned Ambattha about his ancestry, which is supposed to have been totally ‘humble’.

Ambattha refuses to answer Sakyamuni’s questions and the situation is about to escalate. Ambattha was then already in the spirit world, while Shakyamuni was still a living Bodhisattva, Vajrapani who is a protector and guide of the human Shakyamuni appeared and manifested himself. Ambattha then saw Vajrapani on top of Sakyamuni’s head about to strike him. Note this as a realization of an ancient prophecy. Ambattha was really scared and promptly answered Sakyamuni’s question. Ambattha eventually became a Yaksa or a Deity and Vajrapani became a Bodhisattva.

It is important to note that Vajrapani and other similar wrathful figures in the Buddhism pantheon are not representative or manifestation of ordinary anger, there is no such thing as ‘righteous anger’ in Buddhism. The wrathful image represents their power, their fearlessness, and their total awakened mind. Remember that Vajrapani is and will always be a very compassionate Bodhisattva.

In my post above, I gave an introduction of Bodhisattva Vajrapani. That particular is a short and incomplete account of who Vajrapani is, but for now, it should be able to show us his importance and the depth of his power and significance. He alone has the wonderful opportunity of being the assigned protector and guardian of Shakyamuni as a living Bodhisattva.

I would now like to discuss about the Vajrapani Ruel, as mentioned in the previous post, for the lack of an appropriate term, a ruel is a form of amulet, but it is said to be the highest form of amulet.

I have heard about the Vajrapani Ruel several years back and were in search of it. However, since it is so rare, I wasn’t really surprised that I didn’t found any. In fact, the last time a Vajrapani Ruel was made was some 40 to 50 years ago!

I was so happy when my Guru Lama contacted me to inform me that a Vajrapani Ruel is available, 40 to 50 years since it was last made. There are three kinds of known and accepted ruel, and depending on what Buddhist tradition you follow, it is said that the Vajrapani Ruel is the most powerful one.

Why does it take so long to make the Vajrapani Ruel?

The Vajrapani Ruel can only be made by a select group of highly enlightened lamas. These are lamas who can access those Wrathful images through a certain form of non – physical tantric meditation. But other than the fact that only a very few select group of high lamas can only make this particular ruel, there are certain conditions and ingredients that can only be access once every few years.

It would be impossible for me to list down all the ingredients, because according to my Guru Lama, the ingredients of the Vajrapani Ruel consist of 70 to 90 different ingredients.

Some of these are Namtso Salt that I recently wrote about, a certain soil that can be found only inside a certain place in Tibet. But more than various precious herbs, rare plants, crystals, one very important ingredient of the Vajrapani Ruel is a precious relic from a high lama.

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.

Those who are not Buddhist and are not familiar with the importance of relics might find this a little iffy. Relics are basically small pearl like objects found in the ashes of the dead lamas after they’re cremated. Weirdly, it is only high lamas and really good people produces these pearl like objects, and are most often than not are green in color. These relics are crushed into powder, mixed with the other ingredients and baked.

In the world only very few selected people can really own a relic. The karmic merit must be so high before one will have the chance to own a relic, so having the Vajrapani ruel, is an extremely fortunate and meritous thing to have.

Having the Vajrapani Ruel has various benefits, one of which has been mentioned several times. Vajrapani Ruel is one of the most powerful protective amulets. Again, depending on what Buddhist tradition you ask, some of them even consider the Vajrapani Ruel more powerful than the Kalachakra with its protective energies.

The difference of the Kalachakra and the Vajrapani Ruel is basically the Kalachakra is a very powerful protective symbol because it’s actually a compressed symbolic script. The Vajrapani ruel is in the strictest sense of the word an amulet.

But more than it’s protective properties, the Vajrapani Ruel has the ability to cleanse immediate negative energy and chi. It also gives you a upper hand in all your undertakings.

More than that, it also has the ability of bestowing tremendous wealth luck.

It also has the ability to bestow wisdom especially to people who people who are in the field that research and intellectual stimulation takes the front seat.

Because the last Vajrapani Ruel was made 40 to 50 years ago, it’s quite difficult to get first hand testimonials, but my Guru Lama shared some with me and will be sharing them in a few days.

According to my Guru Lama, a Vajrapani ruel can only be made inside Tibet, and he now has the latest batch of Vajrapani Ruel made available which was recently made. This particular batch of Vajrapani Ruel was smuggled out of Tibet together with the Namtso Salt.

Myth Buster 18: You’ll Have Bad Luck If Your Chinese Animal Zodiac is the Opposing Ruling Animal Zodiac of the Year

Published December 31, 2014 by jptan2012

The husband of DU, my friend and reader, asked DU whether he’ll have a difficult year in 2015 because he was born under the sign of the Ox, and for those who are familiar with Feng Shui they know that Ox in the Chinese Animal Zodiac chart is right across the Sheep, which makes the Ox an ‘opposing’ sign of the Sheep.

The animal adjacent to your particular animal sign is usually considered as the opposing sign. This is usually because you have character traits that are totally opposite each other. It'll be harder for you to get along. However, I believe that relationships are work on so I personally don't subscribe to this so much, but I do acknowledge that it can be a little bit harder. However, the belief that you are going to be bad luck if your sign is the opposing sign really stems out from the Chinese government's meddling with Feng Shui practice.

However, the belief that you are going to be bad luck if your sign is the opposing sign really stems out from the Chinese government’s meddling with Feng Shui practice.

This is a very common misconception, which stems out from two factors. One, although I always say that relationships are worked on, the truth is its more difficult for people with opposing sign to get along harmoniously. They have to work on the relationship harder. For example, Ox is going to be more difficult to get along with a Sheep, a Rat with a Horse, and Pig with a Snake, so on and so forth. Please refer to the image. So taking this into consideration a lot of people believe that if you have an opposing sign you’ll naturally have a bad year ahead of you. However, this is not always the case. In fact, my own analysis for the year shows that for this year, most Ox born people will still have a good year ahead of them. You can read my previous posts about the forecast for the year.


 


 

The second factor why this belief came about is because of the communism of China. Mao ZeDong and his successors like Deng XiaoPing, strictly banned the use of Feng Shui, in fact, Feng Shui masters and/or experts are sent to hard labor. But, belief in Feng Shui is ingrained amongst Chinese, so like Buddhism and Taoism, the Chinese government was unable to totally repress it. So when the government realized that they couldn’t eradicate Feng Shui in people’s lives, they decided to control it instead.

It is said that although officially he has banned Feng Shui, Mao Zedong himself has continuously employ the services of Feng Shui masters for himself and for top government officials. This practice has been followed by Deng Xiaoping and up to the present leaders of China.

It is said that although officially he has banned Feng Shui, Mao Zedong himself has continuously employ the services of Feng Shui masters for himself and for top government officials. This practice has been followed by Deng Xiaoping and up to the present leaders of China.

Communist China did to Feng Shui what they did to religion. They can’t take away Buddhism, Taoism, and Catholicism is the country so they controlled it instead. Most of you know about the religions in China having the official and unofficial version. Depending on whom you ask, the Chinese government believes that they have the official version, and the official religions whose leaders are mostly abroad to avoid being kidnapped by the government and put into forced ‘vacation’, are considered the unofficial version. But elsewhere, outside Mainland China, obviously the official version is the Church ‘controlled’ (for the lack of term) religion, and the unofficial is the Chinese government controlled religion. The control is so strict that the government names their own bishops or archbishops, and in the case of Tibetan Buddhism they kidnapped the real Panchen Lama and installed their own Panchen Lama. The 11th Panchen Lama was kidnapped last May 17, 1995 together with his whole family. Nobody has seen them since and the Chinese government has installed a fake 11th Panchen Lama!

Going back to Feng Shui, although the government doesn’t allow Feng Shui experts or masters to continue doing Feng Shui, it is said that they continue to practice Feng Shui under strict control of the Chinese government. They’re only allowed to do Feng Shui for high-ranking officials of the government. As a result a lot of them sneak out and practiced Feng Shui in Hong Kong and Taiwan. For the general public, the Chinese government then gave licenses for ‘illegitimate’ Feng Shui masters to do Feng Shui for the people. Thus a lot of Feng Shui misconception has arise from these government – controlled Feng Shui masters.

A lot these government – controlled Feng Shui masters knows only some very basic rules about Feng Shui, thus they will say that if the ruling animal sign is your opposing sign then you’ll have bad luck, and they were also the ones who said that North is really bad.

They may be considered correct if that’s the only thing you should consider, but Feng Shui is not a simple formula of opposing and friendly signs, because Feng Shui is about animal signs, bazi/Paht Chee, elemental formula, 8 trigrams formula, flying stars, 24 mountains, Ho – Tu, auxiliary stars, and a lot more. All these formula should not be taken as a stand alone, they should be a combination and their relation to each other should be considered!

It’s true that if your sign is the opposing sign of the ruling sign of the year, in this case for 2015 the Ox is the opposing sign of the Sheep, and if you only consider that formula then the sure answer is you’ll have a bad year. However, I remember the FM radio DJ, Chico Garcia, saying on radio once that he was told that he will have a bad year because his sign is a conflicting (opposing) sign of the year but then Chico Garcia said it turn out to be one of the best year of his life. Why? Because that’s not the only thing that should be considered. You have to consider all the other formulas; all the other factors that’s need to be considered.

Of course, you have to remember but if you’re sign is the opposing sign of the year, then you’ll definitely face the God of the Year or Tai Sui (also spelled as Tai Suey) or Grand Duke Jupiter. This is easily addressed by wearing or carrying an image of a Piyao (also spelled as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu) that will help appease the Tai Suey. Wearing an image of the Goddess of the North Star or Dou Mu Yuan Jun is also a very effective cure because she is the mother of all the Tai Sui Gods and is said to be the only one who can subdue them.

The Holy Trinity of Protection: 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep Essential Cures

Published December 30, 2014 by jptan2012

Every year people ask me as to what is the essential charm of the year. The direct answer to this is that will largely depend on your Chinese animal zodiac, for example, if you’re born in the year of the Sheep, Monkey, Horse, Ox you definitely had to guard yourself against Tai Suey (Tai Sui) because you are either directly or on side affliction with the Tai Suey. Those born under the year of the Rooster should definitely have the 5 – Element Pagoda because you’re afflicted with the 5 – Yellow Star, for your reference I suggest that you read my earlier posts about the forecast for the 2015 year of the Wood Sheep.

Although I have said this before, I guess it is worth repeating here, the #3 Flying Star, which is also known as the Argumentative Star this years flies to the center. This means the ruling star of the year is the #3 Flying Star and it is bound to make all things a more heated. The ruling star is the prevailing energy of the year, and that means it dictates the possible most common occurrence of the year. However, the destructive pillar in the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee chart shows that the wood element is destroying the earth element, together with the position of the 24 Mountain Stars further strengthen this Argumentative Star. Thus for the year the #3 Flying Star is stronger than usual.

Some of its effects are that there would be an increase of quarrel. It can be a misunderstanding or a fight between husband and wife, parents and children, sibling against sibling, relatives against relatives, and neighbors against neighbors. It can also be a fight against your boss, clients, or it may even be from a stranger. The arguments can lead to bigger things like separation, legal cases, or depending on your luck, it might even lead physical harm or violent death!

Because of the strength of this star this year I highly recommend that everyone should have on display at his or her home and office and worn as a pendant what I call the Holy Trinity of Protection for this coming 2015, which is the Year of the Wood Sheep.

The Holy Trinity of Protection are the following:

  • Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra. You can read my posts about Kuan Yin  to understand what is her significance, but simply put Kuan Yin is a Bodhisattva who bestows peace and harmony, amongst other possible blessings. I have written about it extensively in three different posts entitled – KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEARS THE CRIES OF THE WORLD, followed by UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN, and lastly PAYING HOMAGE TO KUAN YIN, THE BUDDHA OF COMPASSION. Meanwhile, having ‘The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra’ otherwise known as Heart Sutra will further strengthen the harmonious energy. This is important because it is not only very important that we suppress the #3 Flying Star or Argumentative Star but it is also very imperative that we help push for harmony and peace. If you prefer to use a non – religious image, you can also display an apple, preferably real and make sure you change it before it rots. But with the Heart Sutra it might not be as effective. It might be a little difficult to get a pendant of Kuan Yin with the Heart Sutra, but separately carrying the sutra will work also.

    Sometimes it can be quite difficult to get a Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra Pendant, and it can be quite expensive also. So simply wearing a Kuan Yin pendant and separately carrying the Heart Sutra printed really to make it an amulet (Sutra Amulet) will also work as well.

You can also just get the Sutra Amulet and put it at the foot of an image of Kuan Yin, if you are unable to get a Kuan Yin image with Sutra.

     

    There are different kinds of Sutra Amulets. Look for one that has the Heart Sutra. They can be tied to your mala beads if you always carry your mala beads with you, or can be tied to your mobile phone or simply put in your pocket. Just make sure you don't seat on them!

    Sutra Amulets are basically sutras printed really small and made into a very small book so that one can carry it as an amulet. The Sutra Amulets effectivity will depend on what sutra is printed inside.

  • Kuan Kong or Namo Sangharama Bodhisattva. Kuan Kong is a very famous War General when he was still alive. You can read my posts about Kuan Kong entitled – Kuan Kong and Namo Sangharama Bodhisattva. Wearing an image of Kuan Kong will help suppress and protect you from the direct effects of the #3 Flying Star, furthermore, Kuan Kong will help you be more diplomatic, so should you find yourself in a heated situation and walking away is really not an option, then tapping on Kuan Kong’s energy will help you talk your way out of the situation, you’ll find yourself being more diplomatic. Furthermore, Kuan Kong is a renowned strategist, so having his image will also help you become more strategic thus helping you get out of a heated situation, if not totally preventing it. In choosing a Kuan Kong, it is better if you look at the face; the fierce nice face is the key for a nice Kuan Kong. The fiercer it is the better. It is also better if you wear a Kuan Kong either in yellow gold or a red stone or for house or office a Kuan Kong with a red face. If you don’t want to use Kuan Kong, you can also use the Ksitigarbha Fireball, but remember this will only help suppress the star but not help you become more diplomatic.Kuan Kong23
    Always look at the face of the Kuan Kong pendant that you're getting for yourself. The 'braver' the face the better.

  • Kalachakra. A Kalachakra is a ten – fold symbolic script of a very powerful ten – syllable protective mantra. The Kalachakra will help protect you from the peripheral effects of the unusually stronger #3 Flying Star. The effects of the Argumentative Star might not directly affect you yourself, however, the people around you may not be protected, and you might be indirectly affected. One clear example of this base on a real story. A client’s brother (VA) had a tragic incident that lead to his death, the sad thing about it he was actually an innocent party. He and some of his friends decided to meet for dinner. One of his friends (LM), while on his way to pick VA up, got into a fight with another driver. They had a heated argument on the road, but LM decided to just ‘walk away’ and drove off and ignores the other driver. Little did he know that he was followed. The other driver followed him to VA’s house where VA was waiting for him outside of his house. When LM was nearing the house, the other driver took who happened to have a gun took a shot a LM, he missed but LM lost control of his car, and bumped into VA. VA died approximately two weeks after the accident. This is an example of a peripheral effect. I’m not saying that this is what’s going to happen, but it can be something similar or maybe not as bad, but whatever it is it is better to stay protected.
    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.

Serendipity and Affinity (Part 2)

Published December 28, 2014 by jptan2012

In my earlier post, I talked about Serendipity, now I would like to talk about Affinity. In Chinese there is a word called Yuen, which really has no direct English translation, but the closest word for it is affinity.

The Taoist and Feng Shui believers do believe that we sometimes have yuen or affinity with some Deities, Gods, Buddhas, or Bodhisattvas. The Buddhist don’t believe this, I personally tend to believe that yuen do exists but it is not a precursor for us to be able to get the help of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas.

The Taoist belief that if you have yuen or affinity with a God or Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity, your prayers tend to be heard better and it’ll be easier for you to receive a blessing. It is also said that if you have yuen or affinity, you’ll personally feel closer to the said Deity, God, Buddha or Bodhisattva.

Personally, while I believe in yuen or affinity with the Buddhas, I don’t believe that this makes it easier for you to receive their blessings, it only means that you may be more attuned to their messages and you might feel closer to them. Whether it is easier or they will give us more blessings because we have affinity with each other should be the same with all people, but yuen or affinity might make us more attuned to their message and blessings.

Writing this because just recently, TK, a reader who had had the opportunity to consult and meet with me in person exhibited a strong affinity with the Bodhisattva of Compassion or Avalokitesvara aka Kuan Yin.

TK, consulted me about her family, and the initial reading showed that she should wear an image of Kuan Yin carved out of a Pink Chalcedony. Luckily, she was able to acquire one and after wearing it for a few months, it got broken. I think it got broken because she needed to be cleansed of a negative energy that may be causing her some harm thus causing her family problems. She has to replace it with another Kuan Yin pendant carved out of a High Grade Black Dragon Obsidian stone, this is quite hard to find but she found one. Then after while she also needed a Kuan Yin carved out of a Golden Chalcedony. Again, this is a very rare stone, but for some weird reason, just a day before she looked for one, a supplier has one, which arrived just a day before she started looking for one.

The Kuan Yin with the Heart Sutra is part of the Holy Trinity of Protection for the 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep. The sutra can be carried separately.

I guess one of the biggest surprises was when I wrote about THE HEART OF THE PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA where I mentioned my Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra pendant. Most of you would know that it is quite difficult to find this particular pendant, and I myself had only come across it a few times. However, TK for some reason read my article and somehow although they don’t know each other, another person who is not a regular reader of my blog also happened to check my blog and read that particular post. It also happened that he still has one Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra pendant left. Then for some reason, TK also received a message from a person who all of sudden thought of sending her message, TK mentioned about the pendant, and this person also happened to have gotten a call from the person who read my post who has the pendant. Needless to say, this person became a bridge for TK to have the pendant.

Back side of my Kuan Yin pendant. You can see though it's small the The The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra is written behind it.

When a monk heard about the story and when he got TK’s birthday and name, he said TK has yuen or affinity with Kuan Yin. I also had come to this conclusion myself. The coincidences is simply too much. I guess TK is so lucky to have yuen with Kuan Yin.

Serendipity and Affinity (Part 1)

Published December 27, 2014 by jptan2012

One thing that I really love about traveling is the fact that I can use the waiting time at the airport to write, and because I have been doing a lot official/business traveling the past few months, most of what I’ve written lately came from all the waiting at the airport. My next 7 or 8 posts are all written at the airport also, so expect several posts in the next few days. They will be automatically published via scheduled posting.

But before we move to the main topic, I would like to remind everybody who is interested to get a general view of what’s in store for the coming 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep to read the following articles:

 


 

Today, I would like to write about serendipity and affinity. The first is a widely accepted occurrence in Feng Shui, Taoism, and Buddhism, while the second one is a debated phenomenon in Buddhism, but widely accepted in Taoism and Feng Shui.

A reader of this blog who since then become a very good friend, DU, has exhibited the truth that serendipity really happens. I do not doubt that this phenomenon really exist, but I’m writing it here because I just want to make a point that we should not ignore the serendipitous moments in our life.

I’m making DU as an example here because by virtue of my closeness to her, I also witnessed a lot of this serendipitous occurrence in here life. A lot of these manifested in the form of her being able to acquire the needed charms or amulets either for her or for her loved ones.

DU and her husband is one of the few people who contacted me to request for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. As most of you know, requesting for the pendant comes with a Bazi or Paht Chee reading as well. The chart of DU’s husband shows that he will need a Thousand – Hand Kuan Yin pendant. For those of you who are familiar with acquiring either gold or semi – precious stones pendant would know that there is no Thousand – Hand Kuan Yin pendant that has been manufactured that’s really close to what a Thousand – Hand Kuan Yin should be, or as close as to her image. But much to my surprise, somebody offered me one a few days before my meeting with DU and her husband, and to make the long story short, with a heavy heart even though I really love the pendant it went to them.

This is a very rare Thousand - Hand Kuan Yin pendant. Most Thousand - Hand Kuan Yin pendant will only feature a little more than ten hands, but this one has a lot. Not to mention that it is made of good quality jade.

This is a very rare Thousand – Hand Kuan Yin pendant. Most Thousand – Hand Kuan Yin pendant will only feature a little more than ten hands, but this one has a lot. Not to mention that it is made of good quality jade.

Not to mention the price of the pendant, although it’s made of high quality jade is not very expensive. I think in peso it was only about Php 20,000.00 or Php 25,000.00. More than a year after they got the pendant, I was able to come across the same pendant online, and while it’s made of cheaper quality of jade, it costs several thousands more. I don’t really remember the price but I think it’s about US$ 40,000.00!

Also for DU’s husband, just recently because he is about to go through some changes in his life, he is in need of a Bat with Coin made of Lapis Lazuli pendant. Again, for those who are familiar with it, its quite difficult to get this particular combination, but surprisingly, there is one reputable supplier of good quality Lapiz Lazuli who has it in the particular image that DU’s husband’s needs. And it’s the only one left. Needless to say, they acquired it.

DU ‘s brother also need an image of La Tza, again this is a very difficult image to find, especially one carved in jade. I told DU that it is quite difficult to get this, but I think she was the one who told me to call up my supplier, which I did, and lo and behold there is one piece. Again needless to say they acquired it, and when a Taoist monk was blessing it, the monk expressed surprised that we got hold of such image.

DU had so much more experience regarding serendipity. I don’t really remember all her serendipitous experience, but recently, we just found out that she’ll need an original design Lock Coin, however, there are several kinds of lock coin in the Feng Shui market and not all of them are appropriate. Somehow, she remembered in our past conversation that someone is selling a lock coin, so when we called up the person, indeed she still has the lock coin and more than just having it, she’s selling it at a discounted rate. Furthermore, DU also needs a Star of David pendant, we’ve been looking for a Star of David for a few months because she really wants it but unfortunately, we didn’t found any. But the want has since become a need and surprisingly we found one and what’s more the Star of David is made of Citrine, a stone that DU needs and want also. So she inquired about the price, but is unavailable to afford it. So she had to let go of it. But then when the money for the Star of David came she inquired again, unfortunately, it’s no longer available. Naturally, we thought that it is really not for her. As it turn out, there is another Star of David made of Citrine that is gem quality that is coming, again needless to say she got it for herself.

DU has so much more serendipitous experience, every time she will need something, it seems like it will naturally come to her. I believe that it is fate telling her that she really needs them and that she should get them.
