Fifteen Powerful Vajrapani Days Starts Today!

Published Hulyo 7, 2016 by jptan2012

Yesterday, was the feast day of the Bodhisattva Vajrapani and this marks a wonderful next 15 days (starting today) because it is said that the Vajrapani Ruel or the mantra of Vajrapani Bodhisattva is even more powerful in the 15 days after his feast day.

Namo Vajrapani Bodhisattva

Bodhisattva Vajrapani is unique in the sense that the celebration of his feast day is highlighted after the actual day. Why? This is because Vajrapani Bodhisattva is said to be a secret guardian. In the introduction of Vajrapani Ruel, in the post called – THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL AMULET IN THE BUDDHIST PANTHEON CALLED VAJRAPANI RUEL – you will get to read that it is Bodhisattva Vajrapani who protected the then still not fully enlightened and still very human Gautama Siddhartha. At that time, Gautama Siddhartha is fast approaching enlightenment, then a demon attacked him so that he will not reach full enlightenment, it was then Bodhisattva Vajrapani was instructed by Amitabha Buddha to protect the then human Bodhisattva Gautama Siddhartha, who became the Historical Buddha, Shakyamuni. In a way, Shakyamuni Buddha (Sakyamuni Buddha) became a Buddha because of Vajrapani Bodhisattva.

All Bodhisattvas are powerful but it is only Bodhisattva Vajrapani who has been described as powerful. This is because he is mostly characterized by his power, as Kuan Yin (also know as Avalokitesvara, Kwan Yin, Guan Yin, Gwan Yin, Kannon) is characterized by her compassion, Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva by his vow, Samantabhadra Bodhisattva by her conduct, and Manjushri Bodhisattva by his wisdom. How the Bodhisattvas are characterized says a lot about them, and no other Bodhisattvas got the characterization of power except Bodhisattva Vajrapani.

It is because Vajrapani Bodhisattva is a secret guardian that is traditionally a day after his feast day that his power is celebrated or tapped. This blog has a lot of Bodhisattva Vajrapani miraculous personal testimonies, mostly because of the Vajrapani Ruel. These stories shows how powerful Bodhisattva Vajrapani really is. But even if you don’t have the Vajrapani Ruel, you can still tap into his power by simply chanting Bodhisattva Vajrapani’s mantra – OM VAJRAPANI HUM – under deep meditative level.

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.

Furthermore, if you have the Vajrapani Ruel, and couple it with chanting the mantra OM VAJRAPANI HUM, will make the next 15 days really miraculous days. And if you can go vegan for the next 15 days all the more better, because going vegan will have cleanse your body from all the yin foods or foods that have to die first for you to be able to eat. Doing this as a symbolic offering to the Bodhisattva Vajrapani will make you more open to his wonderful blessings.

Myth Buster 15: The North is Really Bad

Published Abril 25, 2014 by jptan2012

northA few weeks ago I went to do a Feng Shui audit of a place of a reader. I don’t really remember the context of what we are talking about but the subject of the conversation went into discussing the effects of the North. The head of the family asked me how come older generations believes that the North is really bad, and he even quoted the Chinese saying that says, “I will rather go homeless than have a free house that’s facing North!”

Being a Chinese myself, I’m familiar with this saying, and the truth is there is no truth to this saying. But where did this belief come from.

During the time of Mao Zedong and Deng Xiao Ping, the practice of real Feng Shui was banned, because they’re afraid that this might be used against them. Nevertheless, a lot of Chinese even some government officials still believe in Feng Shui and want to use this to their advantage. Because real Feng Shui experts are afraid to come out, this gave rise to charlatans and fake Feng Shui practitioners. They function under the supervision of the government, and were given some instructions. To make things easy, East has always been the best direction, and north is the worst direction.

But if you’ve been reading my blog, the truth is there is no such thing as the completely bad direction or completely good direction. It all depends on the yearly flying stars and on the Kua number of the person, or even the physical Feng Shui.

Triple Whammy Hungry Ghost Month Because of the Double Five Yellow Star!

Published Agosto 5, 2013 by jptan2012

Regular readers of this blog know that every 7th month of the lunar calendar is really a bad month because of the Dreaded Hungry Ghost. This is still true for this year, however, because we also have the Five Yellow Star on the center this year, which is further enhance by another Five Yellow Star because of the monthly flying star, it makes this year’s Hungry Ghost Month, a really bad month.

What this does is that the Double Five Yellow will increase the effects of the Hungry Ghost Month, and the Hungry Ghost Month also doubles the Double Five Yellow Star.

I will not go into details about the Five Yellow and the Hungry Ghost, if you’re a new reader and is interested to find out about the Hungry Ghost, please read my post the Dreaded Hungry Ghost and from there on you can read all the other posts including how Chung Kwei can protect you from this the dreaded effects of the Hungry Ghosts.

However, for this year’s Hungry Ghost Month, because we also have a Double Five Yellow Star, it is also extremely recommended that all of us wear or carry the Five Element Pagoda, but furthermore, all of us will also need to wear a Kalachakra Pendant. It is important that we should realize that it is essential that we have all 3 protection amulets or symbols.

There are different versions of the 5-Element Pagoda. However, personally the original version and a small one, I believe, is okay and powerful enough to counter the effects of the 5-Yellow Star.

The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.

You can read more about the Kalachakra Pendant on my post about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

I also received some inquiries as to when is the Hungry Ghost Day; apparently there has been some confusion because there are websites that states that Hungry Ghost Day is on August 20, 2013. I would like to set the record straight; Hungry Ghost Day is on August 21, 2013. You can do your won calculations, the first day of the Hungry Ghost month is on August 7, 2013, and you just need to count, taking note that Hungry Ghost day is on the 15th day.

But that’s not all, because we also have 3 days in the month of August that has a Triple Five Yellow days, it will be wise for everybody to take special precaution and care on these days. Don’t do anything that might put yourself at risk. The triple yellow dates are August 6, 15, and 24.
