Amulet 101 (C): Don’t Create Bad Karma By Renegading To Your Commitment to An Amulet!

Published Hunyo 14, 2016 by jptan2012

Amulets are supposed to give us protection and good luck, but sometimes by committing to it and not following through without a very good valid reason may create more harm than good.

Allow me to share with you the story of Ate Sarah. Some of you might remember her in the post entitled – VAJRAPANI RUEL STORIES 28: FINANCIAL HELP, A NEW JOB – AN OVERSEAS FILIPINO WORKER RECEIVED SOME MIRACLES! – She is the one who got a job and some financial help even without asking for help after she got the Vajrapani Ruel (1), which is said to be the World’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon.

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.

As shared in that particular post, Ate Sarah, got a job abroad without even actively looking for one, this is after she got the Vajrapani Ruel (2). While she was preparing to leave, she called me up and requested for the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET(1), as most of you know, in requesting for the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET(2), like the VAJRAPANI RUEL (3), you are not paying for the amulet, but rather you are making a ‘donation’, in this particular case, an image of a Buddha to a temple and some offerings. To understand this better please read my post called “THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET”.

Ate Sarah she wants to get two of the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET(3) and because I already know her, when she suggested that I already call my Guru Lama to confirm the donation so they can make the image of the Buddha and the offering already, I agreed. This was after I repeatedly confirmed with her whether she is sure to get the said amulet.

We agreed to meet, but on the day that we were supposed to meet, we had some misunderstanding and we didn’t get to meet. After repeatedly calling her, she didn’t reply to me anymore. I knew then that she decided not to get the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET(4) anymore. I got a little worried because I know that there are some negative implications to this unless of course her reason is really valid. Please understand that this is not due to the fact that how some people perceived it to be a sale loss already, but rather, images were already done for her, and since some of these amulets are limited, she might have deprived somebody of the said amulet.

Note: I would like to stress that Ate Sarah was not malicious in not pursuing the Illness Suppression Amulet (6)which she reserved. She just sincerely thought she has to prioritized something else.

When I called my Guru Lama to inform him about the said matter, he expressed the same concern, this might have some negative effect on Ate Sarah. Why? Please allow me to be very clear on this. This is because one has committed and the temple has made the necessary donations like the Buddha image and other offerings in her name already. The only excuse to this is if she has a valid important reason to negate on what she promised.

Illness Suppression Amulet2

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

I wasn’t able to talk to her again since that happened, and I thought she has left the country already. One day I was surprised to receive a message from her, and when I get to talk to her, she said that she was suppose to leave the country already, but she was off – loaded and barred from leaving the country. This happened to her twice, and to top it off, she started feeling sick, and then she thought off that what she has done, by negating her commitment without a valid reason and thereby putting the temple into an awkward position, might have caused her troubles. She asked me as to why the Vajrapani Ruel (4) didn’t worked for her this time. The answer is simple, that is because she is reaping the negative effects of an offense made against the Buddha or the Temple, and no amulet can cleanse its effects.

And so she called and we meet and she decided to get the ILLNESS SUPPRESSION AMULET(5). She texted me the day after and told me she was healed from her illness (her story was shared on this blog, you can click here to read it) and soon after she called me from Qatar to let me know that she has since left. Her leaving the country is in itself another story worth writing about in another post.

Similarly, allow me to share another story. This time this happened to a girl who has trouble with her family and her work. My Guru Lama shared this story with me. According to my Guru Lama TA called on her because she claims that she has trouble with her family and her work. Apparently, her mother and TA doesn’t get along really well, and she was threatened by her mother that she will disowned and driven out of their house, at the same time, she has trouble in her office. She has been working in the said office for 5 years, but she hasn’t gotten any salary increase or promotion. Somebody who worked there for 3 years has gotten both.

When she approached my Guru Lama she was undergoing some evaluation to check whether she can be a candidate for a promotion and a salary increase. But about the same time her family problem is getting worst. My Guru Lama felt that she can finally get promoted and have some salary increase. However, she will need some heavenly help. My Guru Lama suggested that she chant mantra. She insisted that she wants an amulet. My Guru Lama told her that she can just chant mantras, do it fervently and under deep meditation and everything should be fine. However, she insisted that she wants an amulet. Now, we all know that an amulet can be pricey, so my Guru Lama tried to dissuade her from availing of an amulet, however she insisted and persisted. My Guru Lama finally reluctantly agreed.

NOTE: To understand better why we have to ‘pay’ for amulets please read the post entitled – THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

However, TA doesn’t have money to acquire it by making the necessary donations, and so she begged my Guru Lama to reserve it for her. She committed to get it in two weeks time. With the two weeks time, somebody want to acquire the said amulet, but because my Guru Lama has committed it to TA, he didn’t give it to the second person that wants it.

But in 2 weeks she didn’t get it, she just called and told my Guru Lama that she will not get it. She said she had a change of heart and will just stick to the mantras. My Guru Lama somehow knew that she has the money but decided to spend it elsewhere. My Guru Lama just silently said yes. He tried to pass it on again to the other person but the said person can’t be contacted.

A week after TA called, she went to the temple, asking my Guru Lama for help again. Apparently, she was driven out by her mother, and is barred from living with her again. On top of that, she was told she was up for a salary increase, but for some tragic twist of fate she was actually fired and is now jobless!

To understand this, you have to realize that she is not being punished, because there is no concept of punishment in Buddhism. But she is paying for her karma. And in TA’s case it is the negative karma of committing to an amulet thereby preventing others from having one and then she renegade to her commitment.

Does this mean that if you committed to get an amulet you can no longer change your mind?

To answer that, allow me to say that before you commit to an amulet make sure you want it. You can change your mind as long as it is a valid reason. At the end of the day, bad things may happen but these are not punishment, because there is no concept of punishment in Buddhism, but rather it is karma. You simply reap what you sow. And if you renegade on a commitment that caused somebody else from having it, then there is negative karma in it.

Amulet 101 (B): Unseen Forces Might Prevent You From Getting Hold of An Amulet!

Published Hunyo 13, 2016 by jptan2012

I remember that several years back my aunt from my father side was trying to get hold of THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA AMULET. She was going through something at that time, and I was the one who suggested for her to get one, especially she was scheduled to go to China when we got to talk. And I told her of a temple that she can visit that has THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA AMULET that is blessed by a high ranking monk, but I also warned her that it might be quite difficult to go to that place. She said she will get it and called up her travel agency to include it in her itinerary.

NOTE: ‘The Diamond of Perfect Wisdom Sutra” is also called “The Diamond Sutra”, “The Vajra Cutter Perfection of Wisdom Sutra”, “The Vajra Sutra”, “The Vajra Cutter Sutra”. You can also read more about THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA by clicking on this link.

However, two weeks prior she was to fly for China, she found out that she lost her passport. So she sent out for her to be replaced, when she found out how much money she has to pay for it to come out on time, she wanted to back out. I told her that it is just a minor inconvenience since she can afford the said amount.

A week before she was to leave, her grandson got really ill, which prompted her to cancel her flight again. Again I said that she should just continue with her plan. Meanwhile, her problems is getting worse, unfortunately, I’m unable to share here the details of the said problem because of its sensitive nature.

Then on the day she is about to leave, she missed her flight; the only saving grace is that her daughter convinced her to simply take the next flight out. When she arrived in China she experienced several more ‘hindrances’ and she would call me long distance to ask me whether she should just cancel everything. I continued to tell her to just move on with her trip.

Then a day before she is set to go to the said temple, which is a plane ride away, she found that there was a big storm in the said area. She was traveling with some friends and her son (my cousin) and her daughter – in – law. Her friends got scared and cancelled. She set to do the same thing. Not wanting to risk her life, I said maybe she should simply cancel, but at the same time, I can’t help but feel that it seems she is experiencing a lot of hindrances for her to get the amulet. This convinced me all the more that she should get it. But, of course, I don’t want to be accused that I was the one who pushed her to go should she get into some accident. So as I said I told her not to go.

But then I called my Guru Lama, and his advised his to ask my aunt to go. I called my cousin, and he and his wife need no convincing, because they want to see the said place also. And maybe because they are young they are a bit more adventurous and don’t worry about the possibility of airplane accident because of the bad weather. I also talked to my aunt and she agreed to risk it and go. The flights were not cancelled anyway but they were warned beforehand that it would be rough flight. But to be completely honest, I knew then that she was already having second thoughts because she herself said, maybe she is not meant to get the amulet. And because I know that her problems are getting worse everyday, I told her maybe unseen forces are blocking her from getting the amulet, and all the more she should pursue in getting the amulet.

They told me later the flight was really bad and scary that even my adventurous cousin and his wife got really scared. Then when they got to the hotel in the said town, my auntie slipped at the lobby and her left foot had to be bandaged. She can still walk though albeit with some difficulty and has to be assisted. That night she called me to inform me about, I knew then that she really needs to get THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA AMULET because what is happening is definitely beyond normal and that unseen forces are stopping her from getting it. I already gave her some mantras that she can chant, and I added a few more.

It took her another two days before they were able to go to the said temple because of the heavy rains for two or three days. When she got to the temple, the Abbott of the said temple who I think is psychic told her that she her problems will end if she let my uncle wears the amulet. She was told that she couldn’t wear the amulet. So it was placed in a special pouch, they did some ritual, and she was told to bring it out only when her husband, my uncle can wear it.

So they set to come home. Then the airline lost one of their check – in luggage, which happens to be the one to have the amulet. She had trouble getting her luggage back, and to make the long story short, it required several more mantras and exactly 19 days before she got her luggage back. Thankfully the amulet is still inside.

She then asked her husband to wear the said amulet. About a month after wearing the amulet, her concerns started to get it straighten out!

I want to share this story with you because we should all realize that sometimes the more you need the amulet, the more ‘unseen forces’ might prevent it from happening. So the more one should pursue in getting it. These unseen forces can be negative elements like hungry ghost or evil spirits, or it can be karmic. Whatever the reason, you should remember that if you have problems acquiring an amulet all the more you should pursue in getting it.

Amulet 101 (A): Basic Way to Take Care of Your Amulets!

Published Hunyo 12, 2016 by jptan2012

Amulets are considered to bean extension of the energies or power of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Taoist Gods, thus it is important that we treat them we care.

Allow me to share with you some basic tips on how to take care of your amulets.

  1. Do not seat on your amulet.
  2. Do not lie down on your amulet.
  3. Take care of it like a precious object that it is.
  4. Some amulets can be placed inside the bag or pocket. Some should really be worn. Make sure you know.
  5. Do not get an amulet for gambling.
  6. Do not abuse your amulet. If you know you have bad Feng Shui in your house or office and you have the means and resources to fix the problem, fix it. Do not think that the amulet will save you forever.
  7. Again, do not abuse your amulet. If your Feng Shui forecast says you should avoid extreme sports. Avoid it. Do not use your amulet to take risk.
  8. Know that you have to take risk; your amulet will protect you, but make sure that there is no other resort.
  9. Do not have sex while wearing your amulet.
  10. Do not put your amulet on top of a dirty table.
  11. Do not put your amulet on a low table or on the floor.
  12. Do not deprive other people the possibility of getting an amulet.

In the next few days, I hope to write more about Amulets 101.
