Wake Me Up When September Ends!

Published September 30, 2016 by jptan2012

‘WAKE ME UP WHEN SEPTEMBER ENDS!’ Has been the cry of a lot of people this month. I was so focused on the negative energies of the previous month that I failed to concentrate on the month of September or for the 8th Lunar Month. However, there is a strong hostile energy this September, which is cause by the Flying Stars and 24 Mountain Stars and on top of that, it was extremely bad that we had a prominent Harvest Moon eclipse that occurred a day after the Mid – Autumn Festival (Mooncake Festival), a festival that is suppose to cleanse the energy of the previous month, as such no cleansing happened.

Not all, but a lot of my readers and the people are experiencing some kind of hostile chi or hostile energies. For some this translated into family problems, and for a lot this translated into financial or business problems. A reader has a lot of expenses, but relatively lower income coming in, another reader was driven away from their house, another reader had a big family problem. Of course, there are a few who have some good news but they are more of an exception rather than the rule.

These negative hostile energies don’t end until October 7, 2016. So it is good to protect oneself with some powerful amulets like the gold Kalachakra pendant, Vajrapani Ruel, Suranggama Mantra Amulet, or images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. However, even with protection, one should be reminded to lay low a little.

Eye Twitching: Is There A Feng Shui Significance? And What To Do?

Published September 29, 2016 by jptan2012

eye-twitchingYesterday (time of posting may not be time of writing) a reader in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia contacted me to ask me about eye twitching. It was significant enough for her to be bothered and get in touch with me.

Her left eye has been twitching several times a day, mostly at the same time frame, and also for several days.

Eye twitching is normal and there is a scientific explanation to it. However, if it happens roughly at about the same time, for several days, it usually signifies that there is something about to happen. It is basically your body feeling the energy of your aura, which in turn is affected by the energies of the universe, especially the ones that has something to do with you.

So when your eyes twitch it usually means that there is a message for you. The message can be either good or bad, this is usually determined whether it was your left or right eye that twitches, time of day, and sometimes even number of days.

The message could be as mundane as getting a visitor or it can be something more serious like getting some huge financial luck or it can be because of a pending danger.

However, the truth is normally I don’t bother myself with knowing the details. When an eye twitches I usually recommend that you just do the following ritual.

  1. Go outside your house. Inside the gate will do just make sure your outside of the house.
  2. Get a pinch of salt and throw it over your left shoulder (if left eye is the one twitching) or over your right shoulder (if right eye is the one twitching).
  3. Do this for one day to three days. If continues then do it for seven days. The twitching should stop by then.

If you’re Buddhist or believes in the power of mantras, do the following instead:

  1. Go outside of your house. Inside the gate will do just make sure you’re outside of the main house.
  2. Chant OM AMI DEWA HRIH 3x
  3. Then get a pinch of salt and throw it over your left shoulder if the left is the one twitching or right eye if it is the right eye that twitches.
  4. Then chant the following mantras 3x each: OM MANI PADME HUM and OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT.
  5. Do this for one to three days. If it continues then do it for seven days.

The good thing with this is that you don’t have to bother yourself with whether the twitching is good or bad. Because by doing this simple ritual you take out the bad luck, but if its good luck then it either has no effect or it enhances it.

Gave this recommendation to my reader and she sent a messaged to inform me that her eyes has stopped twitching.

What To Do If You Have To Walk Through An Area That Has A Strong Negative Chi!

Published September 28, 2016 by jptan2012

A few days ago the brother of my friend called me up at the middle of the night, he was out of town for a business trip. Because his meeting in the province got delayed he has no choice but to go back to Manila late at night. He can’t avoid this because he has another meeting the following day.

The problem is his driver and the people in the province warned him to delay his trip because he will have to pass through a ‘forested’ area where it is famous of a lot of negative things happening. The locals believe that the place inhabited by a lot of negative beings and it is also famous for accidents and even ambush. Furthermore, there have been stories in the past wherein a car went inside that ‘forested’ area and never came out. But according to him he has no choice because his meeting the following day is really important, not to mention his wife his expected to give birth in a few days. He really don’t have a choice but he is also a bit wary. The problem is he didn’t bring his Vajrapani Ruel, otherwise, he would have been protected.

Told him to chant the following mantras:

  • OM AMI DEWA HRIH
  • OM MANI PADME HUM
  • OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT

Also told him to this continuously while passing through the ‘forested’ area or if possible even before that.

Long story short, he did it and nothing happened. Did the mantras saved him from harm? We don’t know whether there is really the presence of harm, but even if there is real presence of harm, but if there is then I’m pretty sure that the said mantras would have protected them.

The Lesson That BM Unintentionally Shared!

Published September 27, 2016 by jptan2012

A lot of my regular readers are quite with BM already because I have written about her on this blog so many times. BM, despite of the bad Feng Shui of her house has had so much good luck, which also trickled to the people around her, because of the kindness and the goodness of her heart. BM is one of the most generous person I’ve ever met.

Today, allow me to share another story of BM, this time she unintentionally imparted a very good lesson simply because she is a very good person who religiously practice her faith.

Although BM believes in Feng Shui, and to some extent Buddhism she is at the root of her being a Catholic.

BM always go to church everyday. When I say everyday, I mean EVERYDAY. Although she admitted to me that she seldom prays for herself, she usually prays for the people around her. It is because she is seen inside a church that people have started talking and asking her whether she is going through a very big problem. The truth is BM has no big problem of her own. Other than some regular and common problems one encounters with running a business, her life is almost perfect. The problems that she has are not hers, they are what my Guru Lama calls, peripheral problems, meaning if BM doesn’t really have to take those things as her problems, but because she has kind, compassionate heart, she takes on those things as her problems also. But BM recognizes that she is blessed and her life has been good. And that is reason why she goes to church everyday, because she recognizes that she is blessed and at the time she continues to pray for other people.

Going back to what people think that she has a very big problem as the reason why she is in church everyday, she always tell people that you don’t go to church only because you have problems, but more importantly you go to church to be thankful for the life that you have and also I think going to church everyday is her way of ‘physically expressing’ her relationship with her God.

However, the bigger story is BM lately has earned a lot of media attention, an attention that she is thankful for but never seek or pursued, because she has been associated with a very high profile politician and his family. I won’t be able to go to details but it shows the trust they have for her. A lot of eyes are focus on her now because of this good luck that she has unconsciously nurtured for a very long time for the simple reason of establishing good will and simply because it is the right thing to do. But for BM this good luck that she is experiencing is a testament and a reason for people to learn to practice their faith. According to BM, now people will see that she is blessed because she goes to church everyday. For BM that’s the most important thing that because of her more people will see the importance of going to church everyday.

Chant – A – Mantra (5): When Experiencing Some Bad Luck on A Project After A Feng Shui Blunder, Chant A Mantra to Bring Back Some Auspiciousness!

Published September 26, 2016 by jptan2012

 

Today, allow me to share with you another mantra that helps bring back some auspiciousness if you are experiencing some bad luck after doing a Feng Shui blunder like going to a wake or hospital unprotected while working on a project.

Sometimes, while working on business base project or even school project and everything seem to be going well. Then all of a sudden while in a middle of working on it, you find yourself doing a Feng Shui blunder like going to a wake or a hospital or walking under the stairs, etc. then all of a sudden your project started going sour, that means you have been affected by some negative chi because of your Feng Shui blunder.

One sure way to clear way to cleanse yourself from the ill effects of the Feng Shui blunder and bring back the auspiciousness is to chant:

OM AH HUM RATNA BHRUM NI A

Chant this mantra a minimum of 108x a day, more if possible, until you feel things are getting back on track.

However, this mantra is for unintended Feng Shui blunders only. For bigger karmic or Feng Shui blunders this will not work, or if the blunder is not a blunder but rather something intentional, this won’t work for that either.

Amulets, Talismans, and Charms!

Published September 23, 2016 by jptan2012

Today allow me to share with you a short post explaining the difference between an amulet, a talisman, and a charm or better known as Feng Shui charm.

An amulet is basically an object that has protective power ascribed to it. Note the key word here protective power, so the main purpose of the object is to protect the wearer from danger or harm.

A talisman is an object that contains some special prayer or magical energies that may bring about some luck to the one who possess it. However, it also has the power to protect.

A charm of a Feng Shui charm is basically an ordinary object that represents or symbolizes a certain aspect of our life. Basically a charm uses the power of symbolism and subconscious.

A charm or Feng Shui charm is usually used in Feng Shui. Sometimes a religious image is use as a charm. A charm can also be called as a Feng Shui cure. And depending on the charm use, it may have the capability to protect and or induce or bring about good luck to a person.

An amulet is usually use by Buddhist. Moat Buddhist items whether man – made or naturally occurring are considered as an amulet, meaning it’s primary purpose to protect the possessor from harm, either from physical, esoteric harm or even health, wealth harm. Again, Buddhist mostly makes an amulet rather than a talisman. However, it doesn’t mean that the power is limited to protective powers. A lot of Buddhist amulets also bring about a lot of other miraculous energies. The Vajrapani Ruel, which is considered as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon and enjoys a lot of personal testimonies from readers who acquired it is an example of an amulet (although strictly speaking it is above an amulet), The Surangama Mantra Amulet and the Illness Suppression Amulet are other examples of the amulets that may offer other miraculous energies to the one who possess it. An amulet usually follows certain religious rule for one to make it.

A talisman is mostly used in Taoism. There are a lot of talismans that offers different purposes for its wearer. A talisman is usually made by a Taoist priest and has no ‘universal’ guidelines in doing it.

Basic Buddhism 7: Buddha Dipankara – A Powerful Protector, A Wealth Enhancing and Wealth Protecting Buddha, Patron Protector Buddha for Sailors or Seamen, and the Buddha Who Predicted the Enlightenment of Sakyamuni Buddha!

Published September 22, 2016 by jptan2012

A lot of you, especially if you are a regular reader of this blog, may know Amitabha Buddha, Sakyamuni Buddha / Shakyamuni Buddha, and Medicine Buddha. But not many will know Dipankara Buddha (also spelled as Dipamkara Buddha), however, serious students will most likely have an inkling as to which Buddha Dipankara is and or at the very least would have read about Him in some of the sutras. In fact, if you follow one of my suggestions to recite – a – sutra, especially “The Diamond of Perfect Wisdom Sutra” (also called The Diamond Sutra, The Vajra Cutter Perfection of Wisdom Sutra, The Vajra Sutra, The Vajra Cutter Sutra) mentions Buddha Dipankara several times. In the said sutra, Buddha Sakyamuni told his followers that Dipankara Buddha was His teacher in a previous life.

Buddha Dipankara is a very powerful protector, and is considered as the patron protector Buddha for sailors. According to my Guru Lama, Dipamkara Buddha is also the patron protector Buddha of all seamen and sea women. Practically anybody who works on a ship or in the sea. You have to note that during early times major traders or major trading involves sailor and the sea, thus Buddha Dipankara is considered as a powerful wealth enhancing and wealth protecting Buddha. Not only will he protect your wealth, but he will also help enhance your wealth luck.

But who is Dipankara Buddha?dipamkara-buddha1

Dipankara / Dipamkara Buddha is called as on the Buddha of the Past. Most of you would know that there have been a lot of Buddha in the past, and Buddha of the Present is Sakyamuni Buddha, and the Buddha of the Future is going to be Bodhisattva Maitreya (otherwise known as “The Happy Fat Buddha”). Dipankara Buddha is one of the Buddha of the Past, but since he plays a prominent role in the life and eventual enlightenment of the Buddha of the Present, the Historical Buddha – Sakyamuni Buddha, Dipankara Buddha is considered as THE Buddha of the Past in the Buddhas of the Three Times.

The Buddhas of the Three Times are: Dipankara Buddha (Buddha of the Past), Sakyamuni Buddha (Buddha of the Present), and Maitreya Buddha (Buddha of the Future).

Dipankara Buddha in Chinese is called 燃燈佛 (pinyin Rándēng Fo).dipankara-buddha-2

In Buddhism, it is estimated that Dipankara Buddha lives on Earth about one hundred thousand years ago. While there no archeological proof of Buddha Dipankara’s existence, he was prominently mentioned by Shakyamuni Buddha himself in several of the sutras.

Dipankara means “Lamp Bearer”, and he was accorded this name because he was the one who showed and predicted that Sakyamuni Buddha is going to be a Buddha, and this happened even before Sakyamuni Buddha was born in his latest physical body as Siddhartha Gautama.

Dipamkara Buddha is usually depicted as a sitting Buddha, although there a few one’s that shows him as a standing Buddha these are usually found in Laos, Nepal, and some parts of China. The most common images of Dipankara Buddha depict him together with Bodhisattva Manjushri and Bodhisattva Vajrapani. This is because it is stated in the sutras that Vajrapani Bodhisattva is also one of the most powerful protector amongst the Bodhisattvas and Bodhisattva acts as his ‘assistant’ (for the lack of an appropriate term) when it comes to protecting people, and Manjushri Bodhisattva because we all need wisdom even when we are protected. Another image of Dipankara Buddha is with Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva (also known as Kuan Yin Bodhisattva, Guan Yin Bodhisattva, Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva) and still Bodhisattva Vajrapani. Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara is to represent compassion. If you notice Bodhisattva Vajrapani is present at both times because Vajrapani Bodhisattva is one of the most powerful protective Bodhisattva, but like Buddha Dipankara he is also great wealth enhancing Bodhisattva.

Both Dipankara Bodhisattva and Vajrapani Bodhisattva have very similar qualities that they usually go together. In fact, in making with what is regarded as the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, the Vajrapani Ruel, the high-ranking monks usually also call on Buddha Dipankara (this was shared with me by my Guru Lama).dipankara-buddha

The secondary depiction of Buddha Dipamkara is with Buddha Sakyamuni (Buddha Shakyamuni) and Buddha Maitreya. This is to represent their stature as the Buddha of the Three Times.

One of the greatest manifestation of Buddha Dipankara is when he predicted the enlightenment of Buddha Sakyamuni, furthermore, it is said that he also predicted that Mahakasyapa and Ananda would be Shakyamuni Buddha’s acolytes.

To be able to tap into the power or energies of Buddha Dipankara, you can wear his image, prominently display his image in your home or office, and more importantly honor him by chanting Namo Rándēng Fo or Namo Dipankara Buddha. Do it 108x under deep meditation.

According to my Guru Lama, chanting the Namo Rándēng Fo and Om Vajrapani Hum while holding the Vajrapani Ruel will make the ruel more powerful.
