Buying A Desired Property for Her Mother at A Very Ridiculous Low Price 3 Days After Receiving the Vajrapani Ruel: An Overseas Filipino Reader Shares Her Vajrapani Ruel Miraculous Story!

Published July 18, 2016 by jptan2012

Knowing something is powerful doesn’t make you immune from getting ecstatic when you hear about miraculous stories that are believed to have been cause by that ‘thing’. Even before I had the wonderful opportunity of owning my own Vajrapani Ruel, and even before I had the blessing of writing about the Vajrapani Ruel and being a channel to which it can be distributed to more people, I already know that the Vajrapani Ruel is something that one powerful ‘amulet’. Although technically a ruel is not an amulet, it is something much more powerful.

Knowing that the Vajrapani Ruel is so powerful didn’t prepare me for the many wonderful miraculous, from simple to almost outrageous, experienced share by those who requested for it and who has it.

Today, allow me to share the story of Christina, a Filipino who lives and has a family in Finland. She has 2 teenage half – Filipino, half – Finnish daughters. She first emailed and soon called me up. She requested for the Vajrapani Ruel herself, and the Vajrapani Ruel for her mother who is ill from suffering from the heat stroke last year.

Because reservations are not allowed, she decided to send money first, and I met her the day after she arrived, just before she went to her province. Three days after she received the Vajrapani Ruel, she experienced a miracle.

Christina has been wanting to buy the property behind her mom’s house, perhaps so that she can build an extension of her mom’s house. But the property being sold to her is the L – shaped property and after reading Feng Shui articles, she feels that it is not very suitable because it is more difficult to manage the Feng Shui of a house that is irregularly shaped. She wants the other property, which I assumed is beside it, but the owner of the said properties, doesn’t want to sell it. This has been her concern or desire for a long time.

As mentioned, in this trip back to the Philippines, she decided to meet me and get the Vajrapani Ruel. She did, and as if some kind of unseen forces has convinced her cousin to sell Christina, the property that she want. The regularly shaped property behind her mother’s house! At approximately 400 square meter, the property is quite big, although they her mother lives in the province, which is in Pampanga, anybody who knows about Philippine real estate knows that land price in Pampanga has started to soar up several years back because it has become a urbanized area. But the second miracle is that her cousin for some very weird reason, but I would prefer to use miraculous reason, has decided to sell the property at only three hundred thousand pesos. That is roughly the price of 2nd hand, functional, mid – range to high – range car! Isn’t that a bargain?! Christina, herself was quite surprised, but the only difference that happened this trip is that she got the Vajrapani Ruel before she went home to her hometown, Pampanga!

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.

Over the phone, Christina also shared with me another simple miracle that they experienced. Her brother I think misplaced some money, which they have been looking for some time. When Christina found out about it, I think she either hold on to the Vajrapani Ruel or chanted Bodhisattva Vajrapani’s mantra, not sure which of the two or maybe both. And voila, the money that was misplaced that his brother has been looking for some time was found, under one of the pillows! Christina also attributed this simple miracle to the Vajrapani Ruel!

Fifteen Powerful Vajrapani Days Starts Today!

Published July 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.

vajrapani-6

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.

Chant – A – Mantra (2): When You Need Compassion, Wisdom, and Power!

Published July 6, 2016 by jptan2012

A few months back, a reader who happens to be the CEO of one of a big company called me up because he is having some concerns. He said his company is in a crisis because the investor and the board of directors are not very happy on how he is running is company. They felt that the people of the company views him as a weak leader, and he himself has admitted that he is torn in becoming a stricter leader and a compassionate boss. However, being nice to the people of his company made them abuse him. Thus department heads and directors tend to do as they own thing. His position is in danger because of a possible hostile take over.

He is really worried because truth be told he is the one who put up the company, and to expand he has accepted investors who became part of the board. While he remains to be the majority stockholder, two shareholders sharing their share will overtake his share. And this is what his two brothers are planning to do, merge their share so that they can take the company from him.

To summarize his problem, he said he needs his investors and board of directors to be more compassionate to their employees, but at the same time, he said he needs enough ‘power’ to be able to bring his company back to it’s former glory, but at the same time wisdom to do it properly.

When I looked at his office I saw that there are some changes that has to be done, but he said he cannot do it immediately and while he got the Vajrapani Ruel, which is a very powerful amulet, we both felt that chanting some mantras will help.

I told him to chant the following mantras:

  1. MANTRA OF THE BODHISATTVA OF COMPASSION, KUAN YIN: OM MANI PADME HUM

    kuan Yin3 white

    Bodhisattva Kuan Yin

  2. MANTRA OF THE BODHISATTVA OF WISDOM, MANJUSHRI: OM A RA PA CHA NA DHIH.

    manjushri_buddhist_god_of_wisdom_eq03

    Manjushri is a disciple of Sakyamuni Buddha. He is also a great Bodhisattva and is called Bodhisattva Manjushri.

  3. MANTRA OF THE BODHISATTVA OF POWER, VAJRAPANI: OM VAJRAPANI HUM

    vajrapani-6

    Namo Vajrapani Bodhisattva / Bodhisattva Vajrapani

I will have to clarify that all Bodhisattvas embodies all these traits: Compassion, Wisdom, and Power. However, there are some traits that are more prominent in some because of the vows that a Bodhisattva made. Everybody who chants the mantra of Kuan Yin (also spelled as Guan Yin or Kwan Yin or Gwan Yin) would know that this is one of the most powerful mantra one can chant. But I thought letting him chant each of these mantra so that these traits that he needs for himself and for his company should become more enhanced.

He would chant the said mantra under deep meditation every morning, and all throughout the day, when he find himself idle (like when he is on the elevator or walking or stuck in traffic) he would alternately chant these mantras.

Several months after, he called me up to tell me that the Vajrapani Ruel and chanting the mantras created harmony and a more compassionate board and at the same time he felt he has made a more powerful and correct decisions to steer the company back to its older glory without ‘harming’ anybody.

Recite A Sutra (5): In Times of Conflict and Trouble Recite the Powerful Protector Sutra Called “THE GOLDEN LIGHT SUTRA”!

Published June 20, 2016 by jptan2012

Several years ago, kidnap – for – ransom was such a big problem in the Philippines, that when you randomly approach a Filipino – Chinese, that person will surely have a relative, or a relative of a relative, or a friend of relative, or a relative of a friend who have been a victim of kidnapping for ransom. It was such a big problem here in the Philippines, and several of kidnap victims ended being dead.

This must have been about ten to fifteen years ago.

One time I got a frantic call from a distant cousin. Apparently her father – in – law was kidnapped, and she was asking for help as to what she can do. What mantras to recite to ensure the safety of her father – in – law. I was at a lost and didn’t know how to help her and so I have to call my Guru Lama.

My Guru Lama then instructed me to ask my distant cousin to recite THE SOVEREIGN KING OF SUTRAS, THE SUBLIME GOLDEN LIGHT. The sutra is also known as the SUVARNAPRABHĀSA SUTRA, or THE KING OF GLORIOUS SUTRA, or THE SUTRA OF GOLDEN LIGHT, or what is more popularly known as THE GOLDEN LIGHT SUTRA.

THE GOLDEN LIGHT SUTRA is a long sutra but is regarded as one of the most powerful sutra by some lineages. I just would like to add a caveat that for me all sutras are equally powerful and important, it really just depends as to how you use it.

One of the more noteworthy themes of the sutra is the importance for leaders of the nations, or even businesses, or towns or cities to strive for good karma, because their karma is connected to the ones or to the nations that they lead. Because it is said their karma may lead to disaster or the blessing of an entire nation. Hence, the sutra also earned great importance or esteem as a sutra for protecting countries and is often suggested to be public read to ward off threats.

Even Lama Zopa Rinpoche gives high regard to this sutra and has numerously stated that when a person is in danger that person should recite this sutra together with THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA.

Because this sutra is long, if there is no emergency one can recite a few chapters at a time. However, in times of danger it is best to recite the sutra in one session.

As mentioned my Guru Lama that my cousin and her family should recite this sutra and that if possible request for a temple to chant it twice to thrice a day until they have ensured the safety of her father – in – law.

My cousin and her husband did just that. They even requested the temple of my Guru Lama to do the continuous chanting, w/c they have to make a monetary donation for the various important offerings. On the fourth day, the father – in – law rang their doorbell. They were all surprised because they haven’t paid the ransom because the ransom that they were asking for a too high and they’re unable to raise the amount yet. But from what they are able to gather from the father – in – law is that seeing his old age, he was 76 at that time, they have decided not to tie him and just lock him in a room. At first they were quite rude towards him, however, as soon as they locked him up inside a room, they’ve pretty much left him on his own. He was not released, he actually sort of escaped. I used the term “sort of” because what happened was one day he just heard a commotion, as if the people outside the room were in an emergency. After that he felt there was absolute silence and that nobody seems to be around. That’s when he tested the knob and was surprised to see that it was not locked from the outside. He then cautiously stepped out and soon realized that the kidnappers are all gone. When he step out, he debated whether to call his family or not, but like most Filipino – Chinese he erred on the side of being too cautious and decided to just try to go home on his own. He found out where he was, and because he was dirty, somebody took pity on him and decided to bring him home, but again; still fearful he said he’d just ask for money so he can take a cab. Surprisingly the person gave him more than enough money for him to go home. He then decided to take longer route and when he was sure that he was not being followed that’s when he asked to be drop off his house. They never found out who kidnapped him.

My cousin, her husband, and her in – laws, truly believed that it is because of the reciting of THE GOLDEN LIGHT SUTRA that freed the father – in – law.

Honestly speaking, although the sutra is quite long, I will always make it a point that this a sutra that I get to regularly recite at least once a week.

In fact, those of you who have the highly regarded and what is considered as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon called Vajrapani Ruel, might be happy to know that THE GOLDEN LIGHT SUTRA talked about Bodhisattva Vajrapani extensively. It is this sutra that called Bodhisattva Vajrapani as the “great general of Yakshas”. Thus when you have the Vajrapani Ruel and you recite this sutra, it will enhanced the power of your Vajrapani Ruel thus making it more effective.

Furthermore, other than Vajrapani Bodhisattva, THE GOLDEN LIGHT SUTRA talks about various others Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. But we should not be deluded into believing that this sutra is only for protection in times of trouble and conflict. Because according to Lama Zopa Rinpoche is practically for everything even for financial luck, peace, harmony, etc. Allow me to directly quote him here:

At the beginning of the Sutra of Golden Light, Buddha Shakyamuni, the Tathagata, the Arhat, the Fully Enlightened, calls to anyone experiencing misery and affliction, bad health, poverty, loss, abuse, ill will, fear, nightmares, or other harms. He says to make the mind virtuous and to come and listen.

This “King of Glorious Sutras,” contains everything needed, from daily happiness to complete enlightenment. It contains a heart-rending practice of confession and rejoicing, profound teachings on dependent arising, reliable assurances of protection, guidelines for ideal government, and awe-inspiring stories of the Buddha’s previous lives, in which the Buddha shows how, even before he had completely eliminated the delusions, he liberated countless beings from the ocean of suffering through compassion and personal courage.

See how powerful it is. Hope this sutra brings you blessings and protection like it did to so many people. I will share other stories about this sutra in the future. In the mean time you can download the sutra by clicking here: The Golden Light Sutra.

Note: Light an incense while reciting this sutra will help double the merits of the act.

But remember, as always when reciting a sutra one has to chant 3x NAMO FUNDAMENTAL TEACHER SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA

Followed by the Sutra Opening Gatha:

The Dharma Infinitely Profound and Subtle

Is Rarely Encountered Even In A Million of Kalpas

We Are Now Able to Hear, Recite, and Follow It

May We Fully Realized the Tathagatha’s True Meaning

Then recite the sutra!

5 Ways to Protect Yourself From Evil Eye and/or Witchcraft!

Published June 16, 2016 by jptan2012

“How do I protect myself from witchcraft or evil eye?”

I have been asked this question a lot. That if I were to charge ten Philippine peso per person every time I’m asked this question, I would have earned several thousands of peso by now.

In order to save time from answering this question, I thought I’d just write about it.

But before we talk about that, it begets the question as to evil eye or witchcraft is real?

If we were to base our answer on Buddhist Sutras and Taoist texts, the answer is definitely yes. In fact, one of the Shakyamuni Buddha’s disciple, Ananda, was bewitched by a witch so that he will break his vow of celibacy and sleep with her daughter who happens to be a hospitality girl. This is where the Surangama Mantra started, and it was followed by the Surangama Sutra.

Evil Eye is basically “usog” in Filipino. This happens when a person who has a strong neutral or bad chi looks at you and intentionally or unintentionally wish you bad thing, and that bad thing happens to you. Or when a person gives you that look and you start to get sick. This is quite common than we realize.

Witchcraft on the other hand is not very common. I believe that it still exist, however, it is not as common as most people think it is. Doing witchcraft is much more complicated and requires a lot of chi. however, contrary to popular belief, despite the negative connotation of the word; witchcraft does not necessary mean evil. There are positive witchcraft, it really depends on what energy you use. But for the purpose of this article, witchcraft here refers to something evil or bad.

Here are top 5 ways to protect yourself from evil eye or witchcraft:

STAY POSITIVE AND STAY GOOD. If we stay positive and if we stay good we only attract positive chi. this should help protect us from all those evil eyes or negative power of witchcraft.

WEAR AN AMETHYST OR CLEAR QUARTZ. Wearing these two crystals will provide us with a positive auric shield. However, this is only effective for evil eyes and light form of witchcraft. If you are attacked with something stronger then this definitely will not work.

TAKE A SALT BATH. If you suspect that you got the evil eye or witchcraft is being done to you. Take a salt bath, make sure you use rock salt, sea salt, pink Himalayan salt, or the rare black salt. Put approximately 1 tablespoon of the salt on a small pail of water and use this at the start before you shampoo or soap yourself. For a bathtub, use about a cup and soak in it for a minimum of 5 minutes. Do this for one to three days for evil eye. If you suspect witchcraft, do this for 7 to 21 days.

WEAR A POWERFUL AMULET. One of the best ways to protect you from evil eye and witchcraft is to wear some powerful amulet. My favorite is definitely the one that is regarded as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon called Vajrapani Ruel, but of course the Surangama Mantra Amulet blessed by a high ranking monk should work very well as well, the Illness Suppression Amulet is also a very good protective amulet for evil and witchcraft. The Jatukam Ramathep Amulet is also a very powerful amulet for this purpose.

CHANT PROTECTIVE MANTRAS IN A DEEP MEDITATIVE STATE. Chanting protective mantras in a deep meditative state, in a state that you are almost not aware of your surroundings is a very good protection against evil eye or witchcraft. The following mantras should prove helpful if chanted one after the other: (1.) OM AMI DEWA HRIH       (2.) NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CHALE CHULE CHUNDI SOHA       (3.) TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHNISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NI SOHA.

Chant it 108x each mantra.

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

Published June 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 June 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.
