8 Simple Steps to Give the Gift of Luck!

Published June 24, 2015 by jptan2012

goodluck-large-bpx-500x500I have a reader in Cebu who has a very generous spirit. She bought the Vajrapani Ruel(1) for herself, but when she found out that her friend is experiencing some problems, she was very generous to give her Vajrapani Ruel(2) to him, even if the Vajrapani Ruel(3) is not very affordable. In fact, it can be considered quite expensive. But I know because she was sincere in giving it and she is very generous, that simple act of passing on the Vajrapani Ruel(4) gave her a lot of good merit.

However, I know that not all of us will have enough money to give out expensive amulets, but what can one do if we see somebody experiencing a lot of problems and we want to help them thru Feng Shui.

There are a lot of things one can do that are not expensive, and it might not even cause you a single centavo. Here are some of them:

  1. Chant a mantra for them.
  2. Read a sutra and dedicate the merits of the act for them.
  3. Light some incense for them.
  4. Light some candle for them.
  5. Offer or fruits or flowers to the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas for them.
  6. Give them some fruits.
  7. Give them some flowers.
  8. Give them rice or sugar or salt as a gift.

Numbers 6 to 8 are gifts that has natural yang energy and the act of sincerely giving it to them also offers an added yang energy that will surely help them. Numbers 1 to 5 are very good acts that you can do for them. It may not be as strong as if they do it themselves but the act, when sincerely done, is filled with a lot of merits that it’s impossible that it doesn’t help them. What’s more by simply sincerely doing for them, you will also have some merits yourself.

So remember, while giving of images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, or amulets, or Feng Shui charms creates a lot of good luck for both the recipient and the giver, these things can get quite costly. So don’t feel helpless because the 8 simple acts mentioned above will work ‘magic’ as well.

Myth Buster 27: Knock On Wood

Published June 23, 2015 by jptan2012
Hand knocking on wood

Hand knocking on wood

In the western world and even here in the Philippines, you might be literally living under the rock if you’re not familiar with the phrase “Knock on wood!” One usually says this if one said something or thought of something that is not very pleasant. To avoid what was said from happening, one utters the phrase ‘knock on wood’ while literally knocking on wood.

But where did this belief come from?

In the olden times, unlike now where most cities are highly urbanized, people lived amongst the trees, and they believe that inside the trees dwell some spirits. So if they think something bad may happen, they knock on trees to ask for the help of spirit or spirits dwelling inside the tree. Remember houses were not big then and people usually discuss things outside amongst the trees.

As a lot of places got highly urbanized and trees are cut down, this became ‘knock on wood’ because (1) trees are no longer that accessible and (2) wood comes from trees.

But is there truth to imploring the help from the spirit of trees? And also does it work with ordinary woods that have turned into furniture?

To the first question, my answer is yes. However, the biggest mistake here is how to discern whether the spirit residing in the said tree is a good or bad spirit. And if it’s a good spirit how to discern whether it is strong enough to help. So better not to ask help from tree spirits unless you really know that they are good spirits.

When it comes to the second question. The answer is most wood whether they are turned into furniture or not doesn’t carry a spirit anymore, but having said that some antique wooden furniture may still be inhabited by a spirit or soul. Usually in this kind of situation, they are bad spirits. So better not to ‘knock on wood’!

Read or Chant a Sutra to Help Counter Negative Energies!

Published June 22, 2015 by jptan2012

I have to admit it; I’m partly to blame why people are so into amulets like the VAJRAPANI RUEL and/or Feng Shui charms. Maybe because sometimes I’m also overwhelmed with the effects of amulets to people, I tend to forget that Buddhism is not all about amulets or charms. In fact, I recently discovered that there is a branch of Buddhism that totally discounts Feng Shui and severely downplays the wearing of amulets and/or images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.

While I don’t totally agree with all the teachings with this school or lineage of Buddhism, I have to admit that I admire their discipline and their idea of bringing the focus back on the really learning Buddhism and chanting or reciting or reading sutras.sutras

The truth is chanting or reciting or reading sutras will bring you a tremendous amount of blessings. In chanting or reciting or reading sutras it is believed that one gets surrounded by heavenly beings, and because of this one erases a lot of negative energies. Thus bringing tremendous amount of blessings. So although I believe in the power of amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel, these things can get quite pricey, so please remember reading a sutra is also quite helpful.

Please note that some posts on this blog have the sutras on them or links on downloading the PDF format.

Salt and Flower Power

Published June 19, 2015 by jptan2012

A reader once called me requesting to get the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT (which is no longer available for request) or the VAJRAPANI RUEL. Her main reason for wanting it is for her to get protected, because she always feels really drained and tired whenever she goes to her office because she said the energy seems to be simply very gloomy and depressing. She also mentioned that it is quite obvious that others also feel this draining energy because a lot of her officemates also complains of it. flowers

I told her that the pendant will help her but that would only help her and not her officemates. So even if she benefits from it and she gets herself protected in the long run it might not be the best solution. I asked her whether her boss would be agreeable to making renovations, she said that her boss is a die hard Christian and will never resort to renovations because of Feng Shui.

I then suggested for her to put salt around her office. She can put it in a small bowl and then she can hide in the different corners of her office. Just make sure to replace it every week or 2 weeks. I also told her to put fresh flowers inside her office, just make sure to replace them before they wither. She did this and all of her officemates claimed to feel the improvement as well. Now they take turns in buying the flowers and they have learn how to take care of the flowers properly so that it will last longer. They said, they don’t feel drained any more and productivity and professional relationship has significantly increased.

How does this work? Salt cleanses the place of its negative energy, and the flowers are very effective yang boosters!

Myth Buster 24: A Maiden Who Sings While Cooking Will Get to Marry a Widow

Published June 16, 2015 by jptan2012

There is a popular Filipino belief that a maiden who sings while cooking will marry a widow. Is there truth to this?

Well…absolutely no! This idea came about because usually parents or employers don’t like their maids or children singing while cooking because this has the tendency to ‘shower’ some saliva on the food being cook. However, repeated reminder not to sing will be ignored. To scare a maiden who naturally wants to marry a bachelor, the elders or employers will scare them that they will marry a widow. Given that the number of requests for the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra pendant and the very powerful Vajrapani Ruel are mostly form single ladies who wants to marry, I can see how effective this scare tactic is. And in the olden times here in the Philippines, when you say widow, the picture that comes to mind is an old thin or obese guy with a cane smoking a cigar that may be totally unpleasing to the eyes of a maiden.



Vajrapani Ruel Stories (9): Two Bags Full of Money Help Solves Family Financial Problem

Published June 15, 2015 by jptan2012

Allow me to once again share another amazing Vajrapani Ruel story. RM is a former OFW turned seamstress. She’s employed at the clothing company of my friend’s uncle. Her parents were also employed by my friend’s grandparents then by my friend’s uncle, and my friend’s family knows her family quite well.

RM is a single mom of 4 kids. Her husband left them for another woman, because of the financial burden of raising 4 kids without a husband she has to leave the country and work abroad. Her kids were left under the care of her parents.

RM said that her parents helped raised her kids really well. And she never had any problems with her. Her mother also always made sure that her children would grow up understanding as to why she needs to work abroad. However, there’s always one thing that bothered her. She would always send money to her parents, and when her father died several years ago, she would still send money to her mother. But it seems like there was not much improvement to their house, and like most OFW, she would have loved to shower her kids with material things, but it seems they only have the most basic things. And the extras that they have are the ones brought by RM home for them. Since her kids never complained and seems happy with what they have she never really questioned this, but it has always been at the back of her mind. Because she earns a little more than an average OFW.

Soon her mother got sick. This was a painful period for RM because it happened at a time when her youngest child graduated from school. RM would have wanted to worked for a few more years so that she can have their house repaired and give her mother a better life since she has been working hard to raise RM’s kids. Please note that RM’s mother also worked until she reached the mandatory retirement age of 65.

RM had to come home because the prognosis was bad and she was told that her mother might pass away anytime. So she came home and although her mom lived for another 7 months, it was a very stressful time because hospital bills are piling up, her two older children who have work on their own try to help, but its not enough. RM doesn’t have any savings of her own because she would send all her money to her mother who would then budget it for the kids and their house. She can’t help but feel bad and asked how come her mom was not able to save any money.

Between the financial help from her kids, her mother’s pension, and help from my friend’s family, they were able to get over their financial responsibilities in the hospital, until her mom died without regaining consciousness 7 months after. My friend’s family shouldered the funeral.

All throughout, she has this little voice in her that is wondering whatever happened to all her money that she sent back to her mother.

But life is good despite of what she went through and some financial problems. All her children found a job, and RM also decided to go back to work. Her children won’t allow her to go back abroad so she went to work for my friend’s family. All throughout, although she didn’t harbor any anger, she was wondering as to what happened to her money.

Soon another tragedy strikes again. Her third child was held up by armed again on a payday. They wanted to get his money and other valuables; he put on a fight and was shot. He was rushed to the hospital where he was in critical condition for a week. He eventually survived but some of his internal organs were severely damaged. Recovery was a long and arduous process. Again medical bills started piling up. Although my friend’s family helps her, RM knows that she cannot just always ask from them, and the thought of her and her children working just to pay off debts is really depressing for them.

This is when my friend’s mother decided to acquire a Vajrapani Ruel for her. According to RM, a few days after she got the Vajrapani Ruel, she got this urge to clean her room and her cabinet. She now uses her mother’s room. She has done this when her mother passed away and had to move some of her things away, but for some reason she decided to do a general cleaning again.

Inside her cabinet, there seems to be a smaller cabinet or drawer that she hadn’t noticed before. It seems like a secret drawer. She pried it open, and lo and behold, inside it are two big bags full of money with some smaller bags. Some of them are still in dollar!!!BAGS OF MONEY

She now realized where the money she sends her mother went. She kept it for her. It is quite typical for her mom to keep it at home because she is not familiar with how to do bank transactions and is very old school. Why hide the money? Because she would always tell RM also that she is afraid that thief might get into their house, because in their neighborhood there has been a lot of break ins! It’s also possible that it was RM’s father who made the secret cabinet because he used to be a carpenter.

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.

Now it makes sense for RM as to why her mother would always tell her that she keeps her money in a safe place inside her cabinet. But RM never really focused on this so much. RM totally believes that it was because of the Vajrapani Ruel that led to the discovery of the bags of money. She cried and cried when she found the money, not only because it will solve her financial problem, but also because she was overwhelmed with her mother’s love, because she realized that her mother seldom uses the money that she sent them. Chances are she mostly uses her own salary and that of her husband and eventually their pension to raise RM’s children.

RM said that the Vajrapani Ruel didn’t only gave her money back but it also showed her how much her mother and father loves her and her children.

Dreaming of Tigers!

Published June 14, 2015 by jptan2012

tigerTigers are beautiful but ferocious felines, and dreaming of tigers usually means some bad luck is about to happen. They usually signify bad news or imminent danger.

But as I always said, what is the importance of knowing these things when one cannot prevent them. With regards to this prophetic dream of imminent danger, you can do any of the recommended cures against bad luck mentioned on this blog. Or for this type of dream what I usually want to recommend is asking a person to feed a cat. Feed a cat for 7 days and the bad luck will surely go away.

It’s best if you can do it with the sincere desire of wanting to feed a hungry cat.’
