What’s Even More Powerful or Important Than Feng Shui or An Amulet?

Published August 25, 2015 by jptan2012

GenerosityI know that this blog shows that I’m a firm believer of Feng Shui and amulets, but I believe that sometimes there are things that are more powerful than Feng Shui and the wearing of amulets, even if it’s the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon called Vajrapani Ruel. I would clarify that it’s not I disclaiming everything that I have written about Feng Shui, charms, talismans, and amulets, or even mantras, I certainly am not, but every now and then I come across stories that proves that sometimes there are more powerful things that those I just mentioned.

Let me share with you the story of BM. BM is my reader from Davao whose story I recently shared in a post called – UNEXPECTED HIGH SALES ATTRIBUTED TO THE SURANGAMA MANTRA AMULET: A PERSONAL TESTIMONY OF A READER.

Even before BM requested or invited to have the Vajrapani Ruel or the Surangama Mantra Amulet, she has already been financially lucky, and from what I gather, she is also quite contented with her family life. She has a husband that she loves and that loves her and children that are intelligent but are also very respectful and obedient, not to mention intelligent.

In fact, BM got two Vajrapani Ruels and the Surangama Mantra Amulet not for herself but for her husband and brother. She just wants to help make her husband’s business more progressive and her brother and his family more stable.

BM has several businesses and she also has several properties, some of them are here in Manila, she let her brother and his family stays there for free.

I really don’t know where to start or what to share but BM has manifested an inspiring selfless generosity. She takes care of her brother’s family because her brother and sister – in – law are both of out job, so she helps them. When I say help, she really helps, so much so that her nephews have come to consider her as their second mother. She would not just send money, although she does that also, but she would even cook and send food from airport to airport, and she would do their groceries. BM would always say that she has a duty to her brother, but really what she is doing is beyond duty, because she doesn’t have to take care of every minute detail if it is just duty, but she does because it is really out of love for her brother and his family and also out of generosity.

BM also sends her nephews to school, and it doesn’t end there, she even paid for her nephew’s condo or dormitory so that her nephew will not have to go home everyday something that is terribly inconvenient because the school is several hours away from where they live.

But some of you would say that is her family, she will naturally help them. But that’s the point, her generosity, kindness and compassion is not only for her family. BM would regularly send youths or jobless people to undergo some training. She would even tutor them if the need arises, and she would give them allowance. After they finish school or their training, they have the option to work for BM or somebody else. They’re not tied to her!

She also makes monthly donations to a church or charity. I don’t remember which one or maybe it’s both.

I can say more things, but I guess you get the point. So why am I saying this, because I firmly believe that her good luck comes from her genuine kindness, compassion, and generosity! Who can beat that!

As I write this, her Surangama Mantra Amulet should be on her way to her. I think it will be more effective because BM is a good person. So the next time you want to get the Vajrapani Ruel or the Surangama Mantra Amulet or any other amulet. Think about BM. Yes these things are powerful holy objects that helps us gets blessing, but maybe sometimes the reason you’re not getting any blessings is maybe you’re the opposite of BM. If that’s the case then now you should know where to start.

Surangama Mantra: The Powerful and Effective Way of Gaining Access to Heaven’s Power!

Published August 9, 2015 by jptan2012

This is a long post. A very long post at that. But also very important.

I should have written this post for quite some time now, but there are several things that prevented me from doing it. The first one is whether I’m adequate enough to write about the Surangama Mantra, which is also spelled as Shurangama, because the Surangama or Shurangama mantra is considered to be the king of all mantras not because it is the longest and considered as one of the most powerful mantras, but it is also the hardest to understand. In fact, chanting the Surangama Mantra or wearing the properly consecrated Surangama Mantra amulet is considered to be a powerful and effective way of gaining access to heaven’s power. It is said that one creates a direct link with the heavenly beings that has an affinity with us. Thus, it was not surprising that Venerable Master Hsuan Hua, one of the most famous and leading Pure Land Buddhist masters called his lecture about the Shurangama Mantra as the mantra that is “The Efficacious Language of Heaven and Earth”.

Another reason for delaying the writing about the Surangama Mantra and the Surangama Mantra amulet is because I know once I have written it I would be receiving several emails requesting for a legitimate and properly consecrated Surangama Mantra Amulet, and I was unable to do this before.Surangama Mantra

Lastly, the least of the three reasons is that I was mildly concern that if and when I write about the Surangama Mantra and Shurangama Manta Amulet, my detractors will start attacking it again. I’m no saint, I have done a lot of bad things, but with all humility I thought I don’t want my writing to be the cause of their bad luck and for this to create more negative energies on them. A few people badmouthed the VAJRAPANI RUEL, and I’m sure they would be doing the same thing again with the Shurangama Mantra and Surangama Mantra Amulet. My point is when you slander a Buddha, a Bodhisattva, a Deity, a Dharma teaching or Dharma instrument this will create bad luck and tremendous amount of negative energies to the people who slandered it, and while I’m not the one slandering it, by writing it and causing them to slander it just because I was the one who wrote it I will indirectly cause them to have bad luck. But, I would like to clarify that this is limited to the people who are malicious and malicious in their attacks. I truly believe that people who are not malicious in their attacks and are sincere in raising a concern and as long as they don’t slander the amulets are exempted from this.

But why am I writing this now?

That is because if I wait for myself to feel adequate about it, then it will never happen because I will never be adequate to write about the Surangama Mantra, because in reality nobody is adequate to write about it. Do I have enough knowledge about it for me to write about it since one of my prerequisite is for me to have stock knowledge first before I write some thing. Well, I have enough stock knowledge about it that when supplemented with a further on – phone lecture with a Pure Land Buddhist monk and some research and review of my books, I can say that I’m confident enough to write about. In the history of this blog, I think this is the only third time I’m writing about something that I have to do further research on, one is about the Ghost Month – Mercury Retrograde dilemma last year, then the other one is when I wrote about the Vajrapani Ruel. Much of the details I wrote in the post “The World’s Most Powerful Amulet in the Buddhist Pantheon’ and the very first “Vajrapani Ruel Stories” were told to me by my Guru Lama.

Second, the Pure Land Buddhist monk who I consulted with this post provided me with several Surangama Mantra Amulet. Lastly, I cannot stop writing just because I have made some mistakes in the past which I’m trying to correct now, and stop writing it will be open to attack by a few people as compared to the many who may believe this writing and benefit from it or to the few who may have not believe it but sincerely consider and think about it.

So what is the Surangama Mantra and the Surangama Mantra Amulet? (Again this can be spelled as Shurangama Mantra and Shurangama Mantra Amulet.)

For me to explain it properly, you will notice that I have lifted a lot of passages from the teaching of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua whose lecture can be found online and also published by Malaysia Dharma Realm Buddhist Association and Prajna Kuan Yin Sagely Monastery.Surangama Mantra2

But before anything else I would like to explain the benefits of chanting the Surangama Mantra or wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet. It is said that when one chants the Surangama Mantra all the heavenly beings that has an karmic affinity with the person chanting it will stop moving and simply listen to the person chanting it, when this happened, it creates a lot of merits for the person chanting because a lot of the good heavenly beings energies is directed to the chanter of the mantra. When one wears the Surangama Mantra Amulet, which is also known as the Shurangama Mantra Amulet one is surrounded by the Heavenly Beings that has a karmic affinity with the person who is wearing it. When this happens, no hungry ghost, no negative energies can attack the person because this person is constantly protected. Furthermore, one will also develop a positive outlook in life and it will create a lot of good luck for the person. One will find one’ aura getting lighter and more positive, so some people use it as a love charm, although I would like to strongly advice against as primarily using it as a love charm. These are just some of the very simple benefits of chanting the Surangama Mantra or wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet. As we go one you will see more of the things that wearing a Surangama Mantra Amulet can bring to a person.

But I think it is best to understand why Buddha created the Surangama Mantra.

According to the Venerable Master Hsuan Hua:

The Shurangama Sutra was spoken for the sake of the Shurangama Mantra. There’s no way to ever finish expressing the importance of the Shurangama Sutra and the Shurangama Mantra; to the ends of all time their merits, virtues, and wonderful functions could never be told–so absolutely inconceivable and ineffable are they!

So that is where I like to start. Buddha has a disciple called Ananda. Ananda is the Buddha’s cousin, who is also a royal prince, and later on became a disciple and personal attendant of the Buddha.

Ananda is said to be very handsome and one day while he was out to beg for food (something that they do every morning), he came across a prostitute’s house. Ananda had second thoughts but thinking about Buddha’s teaching that one must not discriminate he knock on the door to ask for food. The prostitute upon seeing Ananda fell in love with Ananda, and concocted a plan to entice him right there and then. Ananda, being a disciplined and devout monk didn’t fell for the prostitute’s evil plan. So the prostitute decided to ask for her mother’s help who is said to be very good in practicing black magic. Armed with some potion and magical incantation, the prostitute waited for Ananda the following day, Ananda wanted to avoid the prostitute but she called on him and told him that she wants to make an offering to Ananda. As a monk and disciple of Buddha, Ananda has a strict vow that he cannot refuse any offering even if it has a poison. Ananda approached her, and she gave him something to drink and immediately Ananda fell under her spell, she then start to lead Ananda to her room.

Buddha being enlightened knows what’s happening and immediately send a monk to go and pick up Ananda. He also gave this particular monk a mantra, which he is to use to protect himself from the black magic of the prostitute’s mother and for him to break the spell of which Ananda is under.

This monk went to the house, and use the spell. He found Ananda still under trance and about to break his vow of celibacy or no sexual misconduct. He used the mantra and brought Ananda out of the spell.

Usually Buddha will say a sutra first and within the sutra one can find a mantra, but for the Surangama Sutra and the Surangama Mantra, it was the mantra that came first and the sutra came after.

According to Venerable Hsuan Hua:

The word “Shurangama” translates as “Ultimately firm and strong.”

The entire title of the Shurangama Mantra is “Great White Canopy of Light Dharani Mantra” (mo he sa dan tuo bo da la tuo lo ni zhou). It is also called “Brilliant Buddha’s Crown, Great White Canopy of Light, Unsurpassed Spiritual Mantra.” The Buddha’s Crown refers to the transformation Buddha atop the Buddha’s crown. There is no way to conceive the subtle wonder of the mantra. The content of the Shurangama Mantra subdues heavenly demons and controls externalists. Every line, from beginning to end, is the Buddhas’ mind-ground Dharma-door.

Each line has its own function; each possesses its own esoteric wonder; and each is endowed with incredible power. The recitation of a single word, a single line, a single assembly, or the recitation of the entire mantra causes the heavens to vibrate and the earth to tremble; it’s said that heaven and earth are shocked, the ghosts and spirits wail, the demons keep a wide distance, and mountain and river sprites hide away.

This shows that the Surangama Mantra and the Surangama Mantra Amulet are very good protection against demons. You will notice that Venerable Master Hsuan Hua used the term Heavenly Demons. I’m sure that most people will find this weird, how can heaven have demons. This will take another post to fully clarify this but for now allow me to say that in Buddhism there are different levels of Heaven. And the lowest level of heaven is where some demons stay. This means they have supernatural power but they have evil thoughts. Earlier, I said that when one chants the Surangama Mantra or wears the Surangama Mantra Amulet, all the Heavenly Beings that has an affinity with the chanter or the wearer will surround the chanter or wearer, obviously, I refer to the Heavenly Beings that are good. That is like our angels, although angels are used here as a reference only and to describe these heavenly beings, because in Buddhism there are no angels. And I would like to clarify that in this post whenever the term Heavenly Being is always used to refer to the ‘angel’s’ and not to the Heavenly Demons that Venerable Master Hsuan Hua mentioned.

Chanting the Surangama Mantra or wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet will also erase all karmic obstacles. This was also validated by Venerable Master Hsuan Hua:

then you can get rid of your karmic obstacles from last life and all past lives. That’s the incredible function of the Shurangama Mantra!

If one can chant the Surangama Mantra one will be able to emit this celestial light from the mouth, furthermore chanting or wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet will also have us emit celestial lights from our body and mind. These celestial lights are lights that can only be seen by highly powerful psychic people and by demons and heavenly beings. Because of this light, neither hungry ghost nor demons can get near us.

This means that Surangama Mantra or the Surangama Mantra Amulet is one of the most powerful amulet one can use during the Hungry Ghost month and also for those whose job involves working in Yin places like hospitals, cemetery, funeral parlor, or if you go to one of these places. It is also a very powerful protection for those who travel a lot and for those who work at night.

Again, I would like to support this claim by quoting a passage from Venerable Hsuan Hua’s lecture.

The Venerable Ji is a well-known High Master in Buddhism. His expert use of this passage of the mantra to subdue heavenly demons and control externalists was extremely efficacious. And so the last line says: Dharma Master Ji, the Venerable, mastered these wonderful sounds. This passage of the mantra instructs us to “take refuge with all the Buddhas, all the Bodhisattvas, all the Hearers and Condition-Enlightened Ones, and all the gods throughout empty space and the Dharma Realm.” It’s a passage that protects the Triple Jewel, and so when you recite it the demons flee and the ghosts don’t stop running until they’re ten miles away. Not just ten miles, they back off until there’s no more room to retreat. They don’t dare make trouble; they are forced to behave themselves.

That’s a general description of what this passage of mantra is about; the details are even more wonderful.

Of course, the ten miles here is used as a figurative of speech to show that demons and ghost will not dare come near us.

But more than that, because of chanting the Surangama Mantra or wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet, as mentioned earlier, powerful Heavenly Beings that has an affinity with the chanter or wearer, what will also develop a very positive aura, will surround one and thus one will have a competitive advantage in business and other endeavors.

Talking about the Surangama Mantra or the Surangama Mantra Amulet is a very big task and I really don’t want to run the risk of writing something that may be misunderstood, so allow me to simply copy here for you essential portions of the lecture of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua. But before that allow me to share a few more things.

The Surangama Mantra is more powerful when chanted, and is also powerful when worn as amulet. If you can do both, it is obvious that one can magnify its effect. However, in choosing a Surangama Mantra Amulet it is highly advisable to wear something that is blessed by a Mahayana Buddhist monk, specifically Pure Land Buddhist monks and preferably a high ranking one because this usually means that this particular monk has a higher level of experience and divinity. . It is only when this is done that the Surangama Mantra Amulet becomes truly powerful.

Please note that when wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet, you are surrounded by Heavenly Beings, so when engaging in intimate physical activity with your spouse or partner, it is better to keep the Surangama Mantra inside a pouch (preferably red or yellow) and properly set aside.

But just how powerful is the Surangama Mantra? To answer that allows me to post here a story shared by Venerable Master Hsuan Hua. Please note that Patriarch Hongren was able to gather such manifestation of the power of the Surangama Mantra because he himself is a holy person.

In the past, Great Master Hongren, the Fifth Patriarch, was cultivating in Hubei at East Mountain. He upheld the precepts strictly and cultivated with unusual intensity. Once when a group of bandits surrounded the city of Hubei, Great Mater Hongren could bear it no longer and decided to try to save the people in that city.

He came down the mountain and walked into that city. As soon as the bandits saw Great Master Hongren coming, they were terrified, dropped their armor and weapons, and fled. Why? Because although Great Master Hongren came alone into the city, the bandits saw an army of heavenly generals and heavenly troops clad in golden armour. It was as if the gods themselves had come down to earth–all donning golden armour and carrying jeweled swords and other awesome weapons. That’s what caused the bandits to retreat in such haste.

And so, without the use of a single knife, spear, or arrow, he routed the bandits. It was because Great Master Hongren recited the Shurangama Mantra that the bandits found him to be so terrifying. You could say that was a manifestation created by the Vajra Treasury Bodhisattvas or you could say it was the awesome virtue of Great Master Hongren that frightened them. That a cultivator was able to frighten the bandits into retreat without the use of a single soldier or weapon is verification of his genuine skill. How else could there have been such a response in the Way?

Shakyamuni Buddha proclaimed the Shurangama Mantra in order to protect of all of us who have brought forth the initial resolve to study the Way; to aid us in attaining samadhi; to help us be at peace in body and mind; and to keep us out of trouble. Therefore we should never forget this Dharma. We should recite and uphold the Shurangama Mantra with single-minded sincerity. By doing so we are helping to perpetuate the Buddhadharma, to keep the Proper Dharma long in the world.

Now allow me to share with you some excerpts from the lecture of Venerable Hsuan Hua. Mind you, this is quite long even though I’m not putting it here in its entirety.

Unendingly miraculous and mysterious, it’s extremely hard to fathom. The Shurangama Mantra is quite esoteric and its changes and transformations are inexplicable; it’s not easy to figure out. This vajra secret language wells forth from your own nature. The Shurangama Mantra is the secret within the secret. That’s the vajras who come to protect the mantra. Your own nature–it is born from your own Buddha nature. Inside the Shurangama Mantra is marvelous magic! The Shurangama Mantra is called an efficacious language because of its spellbinding power. That’s what “marvelous magic” is referring to.

Then come five eyes and six penetrations and the Way opens up. If you can continually uphold the Shurangama Mantra–single-mindedly without entertaining other thoughts–then you can attain the Five Eyes and Six Spiritual Penetrations. You will then experience the inconceivable, unfathomable changes and transformations that occur which ordinary people are totally unaware of. And that’s the reason why I hope everyone will learn to read the Shurangama Mantra and memorize it.

Why is it that the demons, ghosts, and goblins don’t dare show themselves when you recite the Shurangama Mantra? It’s so powerful that there isn’t a place in all of space or the entirety of the Dharma Realm that isn’t flooded with auspicious light. Recitation of the Shurangama Mantra patches up the imperfections in the heavens and the earth. One person reciting the Shurangama Mantra creates power equivalent to one person. A hundred people reciting create power equivalent to a hundred people. And the weird beings here in this world become very well-behaved. So it’s better if more people recite.

It’s an unsurpassed spiritual mantra. The negating prefix “un-” actually means “lofty to the utmost; brilliant to the extreme.” Peerless radiant illumination piercing the heights is the meaning of “un-“. And “surpassed”? Well, there’s nothing more esteemed, nothing more venerated. “Spiritual” is what is inconceivable and ineffable, what is awe-inspiring, efficacious and unfathomable. The power of mantras brings a response with the Way. When you recite mantras, something happens. “Brilliant Buddha’s Crown, Great White Canopy of Light, Unsurpassed Spiritual Mantra.” This means that the light at the crown of the Buddha’s head is like a great white canopy that comes to shelter and protect all of us who recite the mantra.

No one understands this mantra, nor can they explain line-by-line and word-by-word. But if you want to understand it, I can try my best to explain it to you. The Shurangama Mantra can’t be explained in a year’s time, or three years’ time, or even ten years’ time. Now I will explain the general intent of this mantra. This mantra is composed of five assemblies, which represent the five directions of east, west, south, north, and center.

The east is the vajra division with Akshobhya Buddha as the teaching host. The south is the welling up of jewels division with Welling Up of Jewels Buddha as the teaching host. The center is the Buddha division with Shakyamuni Buddha as the teaching host. The west is the lotus division with Amitabha Buddha as the teaching host. The north is the karma division with Accomplishment Buddha as the teaching host.

Altogether these five divisions watch over the five demonic armies that abide in this world. Because of these five demons, the Buddhas split up in five directions to repress these demons. Without the Buddhas, these demons would show themselves here in our world. And so, when you recite the Shurangama Mantra, the five demonic armies in the five directions submit and surrender. They behave themselves and don’t dare try to oppose the power of the Shurangama Mantra. The five divisions in the mantra are what make it so fine. But you shouldn’t be attached. Your becoming attached won’t be so fine.

Within the five assemblies of the Shurangama Mantra are more than thirty sections of Dharmas. Before, when I was in Manchuria, the reason I was able to cure people’s illnesses was all because of the power of the Shurangama Mantra. But the Shurangama Mantra cannot be used casually. If used, it’s not the entire thing that’s used, because within it are, in general, more than thirty different Dharmas. If looked at in detail there are over a hundred.

As to these Dharmas, there’s the Dharma of Accomplishment. That means by reciting the Shurangama Mantra, whatever method you are practicing will be perfected; whatever thing you want to do will get done. There’s also the Dharma of Increasing Benefits. That means, for example, if you don’t have enough resolve for the Way in your practice, by reciting the mantra you can increase your wisdom; increase your Bodhi mind; increase the power of your vows; everything will get better. When you recite the mantra, everything you hope increases will surely do so! It will increase for others, too.

The Dharma of Quelling Disasters means that if a calamity is due, reciting the mantra will make it disappear. The disaster will be quelled. Suppose someone is due to drown in the ocean. Reciting the mantra can change the situation so that he doesn’t get drowned. Or you’re on a boat that’s supposed to sink. Recitation of the mantra can keep the boat from sinking. Or the airplane is supposed to crash, but you are reciting the mantra and so it doesn’t.

Nonetheless, you have to take responsibility for dispelling the calamities in your own mind. What calamities are there in your mind? Well, if you merely rely on the mantra, but inside you are a bundle of false and malevolent thoughts, scattered and impure thoughts, lustful thoughts, then you certainly haven’t expelled the calamities in your own mind. In that case, no mantra is going to work. And so if you want to avoid disasters you must first purify your own mind.

The purity of your mind is what really dispels calamities. If you are full of greed, hatred, and stupidity, no mantra is going to be efficacious. Our frame of mind is extremely important. We must be kindhearted and filled with goodness, wishing to help others. Our mind should be wholesome.

The Dharma for Hooking and Summoning is for use when you meet up with heavenly demons and externalists and want to catch them. Just as law enforcement officers catch criminals, so too, the Hooking and Summoning Dharma catches weird creatures, demons, and ghosts. They do something here to harm others or do some bad thing that causes people to get sick and then they run away. But you want to catch them and so you recite the mantra, using the Hooking and Summoning Dharma. Well, no matter how far away from you they are, the Dharma-protecting good spirits, or members of the eightfold division, or some of the eighty-four thousand Vajra Treasury Bodhisattvas will immediately snatch them and bring those demonic beings back.

Even then, sometimes they won’t give in and you have to use all kinds of expedients to teach and transform them. If you use brute force to subdue them, then that’s the lowest grade of dharma, it’s not a good method. The best methods don’t use any sort of power plays to oppress beings. Don’t oppress them and don’t contend with them. Don’t be like an asura–tough and looking for a fight. Even when you clearly have the power to do so, don’t use the dharmas to subdue them. You should use virtuous conduct to influence beings and then teach and transform them.

And finally, there is the Dharma of Subduing. Demons have spiritual penetrations and they also have mantras. You recite your mantra and they recite theirs. But when you use the Shurangama Mantra, you break through all their mantras and subdue them. You use the power to quell them and make them behave.

I’ve told you all before that the Shurangama Mantra has within it a few lines of mantra that rends the nets of demons. Why was the mantra from the Brahma Heavens rendered useless? It was because of the Five Great Hearts Mantra. The Five Great Hearts Mantra destroys the mantras underlying the demons’ and externalists’ spells and incantations. It doesn’t matter what mantra they use, when you recite these lines, their spells are smashed and their mantras become ineffectual.

Furthermore, the Dharma of Auspiciousness enables things to go your way when you recite the mantra. Good fortune prevails. Now I’ve given you an explanation of these Dharmas.

I could talk for several years and never finish describing the good points of this mantra. All Buddhas of the ten directions come forth from the Shurangama Mantra. The Shurangama Mantra is the mother of all Buddhas. It was by means of the Shurangama Mantra that all Buddhas perfected Unsurpassed Proper and Pervasive Enlightened Knowledge.

The ability of the Buddhas of the ten directions to create response bodies and go throughout the ten directions turning the Dharma wheel to teach and transform living beings; to rub the crowns of those beings and bestow predictions upon them; to rescue beings from their complex sufferings; to enable beings to escape both large disasters and small calamities–their ability to do all that comes from the power of the Shurangama Mantra Heart.

If you want to attain the fruition of Arhatship, you absolutely must recite this mantra to keep demonic things from happening. During the Dharma-ending Age if people can memorize the Shurangama Mantra or encourage others to memorize it, well, fire cannot burn such people and water cannot drown them. No matter how potent a poison, it cannot harm them. For those who recite the Shurangama Mantra, poison turns to sweet dew as soon as it enters their mouths. People who recite the Shurangama Mantra will never get born in bad places, even if they want to. Why is that so? It’s because the Shurangama Mantra pulls you back and won’t allow you to go.

Someone who recites the Shurangama Mantra may never have amassed any blessings or virtue, but, simply because he recites the mantra, the Thus Come Ones of the ten directions will bestow their own merit and virtue upon that person. Wouldn’t you call that a bargain? That happens based on the recitation of the Mantra alone. If you recite the Shurangama Mantra, you will continually get to be born at a time when a Buddha is in the world and will be able to immerse yourself in cultivation under that Buddha’s guidance.

If your mind is terribly scattered so that you can’t concentrate and don’t have any samadhi-power, but you think about the Shurangama Mantra and recite it with your lips, the Vajra Treasury King Bodhisattvas will very attentively watch for ways to invisibly help you gradually until your confusion has disappeared and you develop samadhi. They will imperceptibly help you open your wisdom and concentrate your mind to the point that you become crystal clear about all the events spanning the previous eighty-four thousand Ganges’ sands of eons.

If you can learn the Shurangama Mantra until you have memorized it fluently–so that you become one with the mantra–then you attain the mantra’s samadhi and your recitation will be like flowing water, welling up uninterrupted. If you can do that, then at the very least for seven lives to come you will be as wealthy as America’s richest oil magnates. And you say, “That’s great! I’m going to learn the mantra right away! I wouldn’t mind being a magnate of some kind!” Well, if you are that selfish, then don’t even bother learning the mantra. Seven lives pass in the blink of an eye anyway.

What should those who learn the Shurangama Mantra be hoping for? You should hope for ultimate Buddhahood; hope to attain the Unsurpassed Proper and Equal Right Enlightenment. Don’t be so petty! Actually those who are really dedicated in reciting the Shurangama Mantra are transformation bodies of Buddhas. Not just any transformation bodies, but those atop the Buddha’s crown–transformation bodies of that transformation body! And so you see that the wonderful aspects of the Shurangama Mantra are difficult to express, difficult to conceptualize.

Wherever someone is seriously reciting the Shurangama Mantra, a great white canopy will be there in the space above him. If your skill in reciting the mantra is high-level and far-reaching, then when you recite, the canopy will extend for thousands of miles, preventing any disasters or difficulties. If you only have a little skill, then the canopy will be right above your own head protecting you. If you have virtue in the Way, if you are a High Sanghan, then when you recite, the entire nation will be benefitted and no calamities will occur. Or if disasters are unavoidable, big ones will turn into little ones, and the little ones won’t even happen.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a nationwide famine, plague, war, or plunder, all those kinds of disasters will be alleviated. Suppose you were to write out the Shurangama spiritual mantra and place it at the main entrances to the city, or in its watchtowers or other lookout places; suppose you could inspire the nation’s inhabitants to show interest in the Shurangama Mantra, so that they bow to and revere it and single-mindedly make offerings to it as if they were offering to the Buddhas themselves; suppose you could get every single citizen to wear the mantra on their person or to keep it in their place of residence; well, if you could do that, all disasters would disappear.

Whenever the Shurangama Mantra can be found in a place, the gods and dragons are delighted, and so that place will be free from devastating storms; the crops will produce in abundance; and the populace will be peaceful and happy. That is why I say that the merit and virtue of the Shurangama Mantra is inexpressible; it can’t be reckoned in the mind; it can’t be cognized in our thoughts. That’s the wonder of it!

Basically broken precepts cannot be mended. But if you recite the Shurangama Mantra, you can return to purity. But when I say recite, I don’t mean you can just do it casually. You have to attain the mantra-recitation samadhi. The recitation of the mantra must flow forth from your mind and the mantra must flow back into your mind. That’s called “the mantra is the mind and the mind is the mantra.” Your mind and the mantra become united. There isn’t any distinction. It reaches the point where you couldn’t forget it if you wanted to. That’s called even when not reciting, the recitation continues; when reciting there really isn’t any recitation. You recite until there aren’t any idle thoughts remaining. The only function of the mind is the recitation of the Shurangama Mantra. That’s called meshing with the mind. There are no second thoughts. The flow of the mantra’s recitation is like water that flows on in uninterrupted waves.

At that point, everything expresses the Mahayana–the sounds of the breezes blowing and the water flowing are all the Shurangama Mantra’s Heart Mantra. If you can reach that level, then if you have broken precepts, you will be able to return to pure precepts. You will be endowed with the precepts without going through the formal transmission. If you are someone who doesn’t want to progress in your practice, who doesn’t want to investigate the Buddhadharma, but you recite the Shurangama Mantra for a period of time, quite naturally you will be inspired to be vigorous; those who lack wisdom can open their wisdom.

If you are not pure in your cultivation so that you break your vegetarian practices and violate the precepts, but you have not forgotten the Shurangama Mantra, you will be able to quickly return to purity. If you violated precepts before you began upholding the mantra and prior to receiving the precepts, then once you start reciting the mantra you can completely wipe out all those former offenses, no matter how serious they were, including even the Four Parajikas, the Five Rebellious Acts, the Four or Eight Offenses warranting dismissal from the Sangha, which are basically unpardonable. Not even a hair’s breadth of an offense will remain. And so I say that the power of the Shurangama Mantra is beyond all conception or description!

Every line of the Shurangama Mantra contains infinite meanings as well as infinite functions. You should realize that the Shurangama Mantra is the most efficacious language in the world–the efficacious within the efficacious, the esoteric within the esoteric! It is an unsurpassed Dharma Treasure–the gem that can save living beings’ lives. It embraces all that exists.

From the Buddhas of the ten directions to the Avichi Hell, all the four kinds of sages and six sorts of common realms pay homage to the Shurangama Mantra. None of the ten Dharma realms transcends its scope. All categories of ghosts, spirits, Dharma-protecting deities, Hearers, Condition-enlightened Ones, up to the Buddha Vehicle are contained within the Shurangama Mantra. The Shurangama Mantra contains the names of ghost and spirit kings. When the names of those leaders are recited, all the ghosts and spirits in their retinues become very obedient and behave themselves. They don’t dare to make trouble.

Reciting the Shurangama Mantra every day can cause demonic beings and weird ghosts throughout the world to settle down and stop harming people. The substance and function of the Shurangama Mantra are all-encompassing. It can be said that within the mantra can be found the entirety of Buddhism’s teachings and meaning. If you can understand the Shurangama Mantra, then you have understood the essence of Buddhism’s esoteric teachings.

The Shurangama Mantra is extremely efficacious, but it is not that easy to master. First of all you cannot be selfish; next you cannot be out to get your own private gains. You have to be magnanimous and devoid of selfish thoughts. You have to be impartial and not prejudiced. You have to be willing to sacrifice yourself for the sake of others. You have to have the resolve to universally save all living beings. If you can embody the above-listed qualities, then you will have swift success. Pay close attention: you must hold the five precepts and practice the ten good deeds. That’s the very least you should do.

When you are developing your skill in reciting the Shurangama Mantra, you may dream of yourself bowing to the Buddhas; or in a dream see the Buddhas emitting light; or dream that you see the Buddha come as rub the crown of your head; or dream that the Buddhas speak Dharma for you; or dream that you see the Bodhisattvas, or Condition-enlightened Ones, or Hearers, or Sagely Sanghans or gods and heavenly generals; or in a dream see yourself ascending into space; or dream that you can fly. All of these are good experiences.

 Or you may be riding a horse or crossing a river and encounter all sorts of auspicious lights; or there may be other extremely rare appearances that manifest. If you do attain responses such as these, then you should be very careful. You should bring forth the resolve for Bodhi; guard the purity of the karma created by your body, mouth, and mind; and increase your efforts and tighten your skill in reciting the mantra.

You should not tell others what kinds of responses you’ve had in order to get others to believe in you or to think highly of you. It’s enough for you yourself to know what responses you’ve had. If you keep advertising your own merits and selling your cultivation out on the streets, then you are wrong. If you act like that, you leave yourself open and the demons will attack. That’s like failing to put your jewels in a safebox. If you leave them at the doorway, then someone is certainly going to steal them.

Depriving Someone of An Amulet or A Good Luck!

Published August 3, 2015 by jptan2012

Recently, I might have unintentionally deprived someone of being able to use an amulet, specifically the Vajrapani Ruel, and this person believes that they were not able to get their US visa because of this.

I don’t know whether I was able to communicate with this person the sincerity of my regret of not being able to lend him the Vajrapani Ruel. But more than that I believe depriving someone of an amulet and to some extent the good luck that they may get out of using an amulet has some negative effects.

This incident has lead me to write this particular post.

What are the effects of depriving someone from having an amulet?

The truth is it depends on the reason, and yes there are various reasons.

  1. WITH SINCERE INTENTION BUT NO FOLLOW THROUGH. This is what happened between this particular person and me. I have all intention of lending him the Vajrapani Ruel but was not able to because of problems with schedule. It pains me to write this post because I’m guilty of this, but in the spirit of truth, I’m writing this now. Well, for this kind of cause the effect according to my Guru Lama is that some of the person’s personal amulets will be less effective. Or one might suffer the same fate with the person deprived of the said amulet.
  2. WITH SELFISH INTENTION BUT NO FOLLOW THROUGH. This is when one wants or is thinking of getting a valued amulet, but since there is one left, this person intentionally reserves it whether he/she has the money or not or while he/she is thinking of getting it or not. Convincing the person who has the amulet to simply give it to him/her, then later on decided not to get it but he/she has since deprived other persons who are also interested from acquiring it. According to my Guru Lama, this kind of person will have a bad luck that is inversely proportionate to what would have been the positive effects of the amulet.
  3. SLANDERING AN AMULET BECAUSE OF A PERSONAL BELIEF OR EXPERIENCED. Among all the reasons this is the worst. There are people from other religions who don’t believes in the power of amulets and as a result slanders an amulet, or they simply don’t believe an amulet and slanders it, or because they feel that they didn’t get the effect that they want from the amulet and slanders it, or they don’t believe the source of the amulet and without really finding out about the truth about the amulet slanders it, and all these slandering lead to a person or people who don’t believes in the amulet, according to my Guru Lama, base on the Suranggama Sutra which is a sutra shared by the Buddha, these kinds of slandering will cause severe bad luck to the said person.

I just needed to write this to remind myself to be more careful and also to offer my sincerest apologies to this person and to those who might not have gotten their amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel right away because of my busy schedule.

Turquoise: A Powerful Protection and Wealth Amulet (Helping Nepal and Tibet)

Published May 8, 2015 by jptan2012

I’m once again TEMPORARILY BREAKING my vow to take a short blog break to write an important piece on how to help the people of Nepal and Tibet.
Nepal Earthquake
A few posts ago, I mentioned that all the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet bought until the end of the year will go to the helping all sentient beings affected by the killer quake in Nepal and Tibet. Also, all the money from the remaining Vajrapani Ruels will also go to the people of Tibet who unfortunately because they are under China’s rule won’t be able to get as much international aid.

Today, I just want to write about another way you can send help and at the same time receive blessings. My Guru Lama has sent me several pieces of special Tibetan Turquoise. Because I’m on blog break, this Tibetan Turquoise will be made available only to people whom personally knows me. This is to help raise funds for the sentient beings of Tibet, who were also severely affected by the earthquake.

But what is a Turquoise. A Turquoise is a kind semi – precious stone that has very good protective, wisdom generating, and wealth stone. The internet is a treasure trove of information about all the wonderful energies and power or luck what can get with a turquoise so I really won’t go into detail about it. But allow me to share here, verbatim, what the website Crystal Vault has to say about the power of Turquoise.

For centuries Turquoise has been recognized as possessing the power to protect riders from injury due to falls. First used as amulets by Turkish soldiers, on their persons and attached to their bridles and trappings, it later came to be used for protection against falls of any kind. [Kunz, 109] Turquoise is also reputed to be influenced by the physical condition of the person who wears it. It is thought to grow pale when its owner is sick or sad, lose all color when the person dies, and gradually recover its color when transferred to a new healthy owner, its color deepening each day. [Fernie, 268]  

Historically, Turquoise is credited with the property of securing friendly regard, verifying the traditional saying that “he, or she, who owns a Turquoise will never want for a friend.” [Fernie, 37] In the Orient, a Turquoise ring was worn as a protector against all things evil. The proverb states: “Given by a loving hand it brings with it happiness and good fortune.” However, the ring emitted protective energy only if the stone was given by a friend. It was believed to restore clear vision to the mind when the thinking became muddled and thus ensured good fortune. [Mella, 111]

Turquoise has always been valued as an ornamental gem, often considered a symbol of male power. Anselmus de Boot, court physician of Emperor Rudolph II, wrote in 1609 that Turquoise was so highly regarded by men that no man considered his hand to be well adorned unless he wore a fine Turquoise. [Kunz, 111] Today, we know Turquoise empowers men and women equally, and worn or carried, it is a talisman of luck, success, ambition, creativity and wealth. [Eason, 239]

In the workplace, Turquoise promotes leadership, assists relocation or regular travel associated with career, and helps avoid unwise investments. It helps overcome writer’s block, and is a stone of clear communication when giving information; an especially good amulet for those who work in the law, or for local or central government. [Eason, 41, 239] Turquoise is especially recommended for accountants and computer operators for mental relaxation, for those who work in radio or television to release anxiety, and for laborers to protect from bodily harm. [Mella, 129-132]

As a crystal for travel, Turquoise protects you and your possessions against theft, loss or attack, helps prevent accidents, especially falls, and even guards your pet. [Eason, 41-42] Attached to a collar, bridle, or cage, Turquoise prevents animals from straying or being stolen, and makes horses sure-footed and obedient to their riders.

 It is especially useful for clearing the Throat Chakra, and blockages of suppressed self-expression. [Hall, 307] As jewelry it is worn by men and women alike, and considered a promise of fidelity and protectiveness to a lover or partner. It is used in sacred prayer beads, adorns musical instruments, prayer wheels and bells, and a Turquoise rosary is said to relate prayer to whatever deity is being invoked. Tibetan Turquoise is traditionally received as a gift to pass on its natural fortune-bringing powers, so if you buy your own, make it a gift to yourself. [Eason, 256]

But what I really want to share about this particular turquoise is that these are special pieces that have been with my Guru Lama since he was a novice, and was handed to him by his own Rinpoche. He was given 3 sets of this stone in which he should be giving to deserving monks, he has given one set to his own attendant who uses it as a prayer bead. The remaining two sets, because of the much needed help in Tibet, he decided to break into several pieces to make available to raise funds for the people of Tibet who were afflicted by the earthquake as much as Nepal. The only difference is since they are under the Chinese rule, international aid and news are unable to go in.

These Turquoise beads of my Guru Lama are highly blessed. Please note that these are mala beads broken into single powerful beads for people who wants to avail them to help the Sentient Beings in Tibet and Nepal.

These Turquoise beads of my Guru Lama are highly blessed. Please note that these are mala beads broken into single powerful beads for people who wants to avail them to help the Sentient Beings in Tibet and Nepal.

These pieces are very holy because for about 3 decades they reside in a temple and are under different precious relics, most recently with the tooth relic of the Buddha. Not only that Turquoise is already powerful crystals, but also these pieces are inscribed with powerful symbols of double happiness and longevity. So giving a piece of this to people who are sick or whose lives may be in danger will surely help extend their life and protect them from harm. Furthermore, having this will ensure that your romantic luck, and at the same time bring back lost love, or wandering husband or wife.

But most important of all, remember all those who wish to invite this will also send financial help to Tibet.

The Landlord’s Tablet: More Than Just A Symbol of Power and Wealth

Published March 20, 2015 by jptan2012

“…the crowd, intoxicated with the unstructured power bestowed upon them by the government barge into the house of the man’s palatial house. They searched for the Landlord’s Tablet, and unfortunately for the man and his family, they have two. The tablets were used to hit them repeatedly. At the end, the master of the house with his children, in – laws, and grandchildren were all severely bruised. The mistress of the house was not so lucky, because she died in the process.”

In his book HUNDRED DAY WAR, which is considered as one of the most accurate book about the Cultural Revolution and the Communism that preceded it in China, William Hinton made mention of the Landlord’s Tablet. The Landlord’s Tablet is also known as the Rich Man’s Tablet.

The Landlord’s Tablet is called as such because in the olden times it is usually the rich person or a landlord who has this kind of tablet. It is also sometimes called as the Statesman’s Tablet. In some way, it has become a symbol of a rich man’s status and power, but the Landlord’s Tablet, which is also known as the Rich Man’s Tablet is not some kind of an official tablet declaring their wealth and power or that they are from the government. It is actually a Taoist – Feng Shui amulet that is put in the house.

Officially, for traditional Feng Shui masters and Taoist priests the Landlord’s Tablet, or the Rich Man’s Tablet or the State Man’s Tablet is actually called Ing Deng Pay (Pay is pronounce as pie), which is also called Ing Tiak Pay.

The Ing Deng Pay became commonly known as the Landlord’s Tablet or State Man’s Tablet or Rich Man’s Tablet because the ones who usually have are the landlords or rich man or government officials.

The truth is the Ing Deng Pay is one of the greatest Taoist – Feng Shui cure or enhancer one can have. Not all Feng Shui experts are familiar with this, and needless to say not all Feng Shui masters can make one. In the same manner, not all Taoist priests are familiar with making one. Usually, to make an Ing Deng Pay it will take for a Taoist Priest who is familiar with it and a Feng Shui Master who is also familiar with it to collaborate with each other.

Recently, my Feng Shui teacher has found a Taoist priest who is familiar with making the Ing Deng Pay and they have set out to making it available to people. The Ing Deng Pay is usually made of marble, granite, any hard stone, or hard wood. Sometimes it might have some crystals, depending on one’s birthday and/or needs.

In the old times, a Chinese businessman or politician will usually hire a professional Feng Shui master or a Taoist priest, most of the time both, or a Taoist priest who is also a Feng Shui expert to do a Bazi (also call Paht Chee) analysis and an analysis of his property. Especially if his property is missing a sector. They will then make an Ing Deng Pay to ensure that missing sector is countered and continuously cured of its adverse effect. In a way, having the Ing Deng Pay makes an auric or psychic sector. For example, if the missing sector is the South, having the Ing Deng Pay made under the chart of the master of the house and the missing sector will create an psychic South sector and thus it becomes like there’s no missing sector. Furthermore, more than creating a auric or psychic sector, the Ing Deng Pay is also usually incorporated with powerful inscriptions that brings in wealth and power luck. That is why most people that have the Ing Deng Pay are not only wealthy and powerful but has very good social standing in the community.

The Ing Deng Pay is usually hidden because if somebody who is familiar with the art of understanding and making an Ing Deng Pay and wishes to do you harm, they can come up with another Ing Deng Pay that will counter the inscription of your Ing Deng Pay sneak it in to your house and your Ing Deng Pay might lose it’s power. Furthermore, the master of the house usually keeps his Ing Deng Pay hidden because if somebody in the house wants to create bad luck for the master of the house they can steal his Ing Deng Pay and destroy it. Some Ing Deng Pay is hidden under the ground.

However, the Ing Deng Pay as written in my first post about it –ARE YOU SUFFERING FROM AN AFFLICTED BAZI THAT’S CAUSING SEVERE MONEY, CAREER, RELATIONSHIP, OR PERSONAL PROBLEMS? AN ING DENG PAY IS A POWERFUL TAOIST CURE FOR THESE PROBLEMS -was first created not for the missing sectors. The original formula of the Ing Deng Pay is originally for those people whose Bazi is severely afflicted with a lot of conflicting elements or signs. When a child is born, specially if its a son, the father will usually ask a Feng Shui master to check on the Bazi of the baby, if they see it’s afflicted they then make an Ing Deng Pay for him. It is said that the members of the royal family will have their Ing Deng Pay guarded 24/7.

It was not until the 17th century when a famous Taoist priest who is also a Feng Shui master discovered (or created) the formula for creating an Ing Deng Pay for the house. Since then, the formula was handed down from one generation to the other until Mao Zedong’s ruling disrupted it when he banned China. And to ensure that people get scared of acquiring and Ing Deng Pay the government seeded to the army and later on the Red Army of the cultural revolution for them to use the Ing Deng Pay to hit and reeducated landlords.

It has been a long time dream of my Feng Shui teacher to make an Ing Deng Pay, he is well familiar with the formula but he is not very confident. But it’s a good thing that he was introduced to a Taoist priest last year that is also knowledgeable to make the Ing Deng Pay, they then sent out to making Ing Deng Pay/s available to the public.

Note: I’m not showing a picture of an Ing Deng Pay because of privacy reasons. Some information, for those who are familiar with it, may reveal information about the owner of the Ing Deng Pay.

The Vajrapani Ruel Stories (5): In the Nick of Time and Money Problems Solved with the Help of the ‘Hated’ Gift

Published February 13, 2015 by jptan2012

money-problemsToday, I would like to share with you two different Vajrapani Ruel stories or personal testimonies of readers who have acquired the Vajrapani Ruel. There are two different stories, and one was just shared with me earlier by a reader turned friend.

For regular readers of this blog, you would know how rare and precious a Vajrapani Ruel is, given that it was last made 40 – 50 years ago. That’s a generation ago!!! I know that the Vajrapani Ruel is one of the most powerful ‘amulet’ in Buddhism for it is made of 70 to 90 different ingredients that includes precious first class Buddhist relics. But even then I’m still a little surprised as to how fast the testimonies started pouring in, like EL’s and JS’s stories both of which I have shared here on my blog.

Reader turned friend GS was one of the few people who got the Vajrapani Ruel even before I wrote about it. Unlike JS and EL she doesn’t have a spectacular story to share but she believes that the Vajrapani Ruel that she acquired solved a lot of the small nuances that she normally experience in her daily life.

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.

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.

Today, she shared with me again another Vajrapani Ruel story that although may seem petty, she believes exhibits the wonderful power of the Vajrapani Ruel. I’ll start off with her story before sharing MC’s story, which is short of miraculous in solving his money problems.

GS has a meeting in Quezon City and she also has a flight to catch. Her meeting in QC was with her biggest client so she was unable to cancel it, despite of the terrible traffic that we experienced in the Metro today. Her flight was at around 6:30PM but her meeting finished at around 4:15PM, and considering that she was supposed to be at the airport 3 hours before her flight she knew that there was not much hope. In fact, her assistant told her to just rebooked her flight. But she decided to hold the Vajrapani Ruel on her palm while driving and she got to the airport at 6PM! Just before the check – in counter closed. Everybody who lives in Metro Manila knows that for a Friday, payday, Valentine’s weekend, and on rush hour, this is quite an impossible feat! But she made it and she said it was because of the Vajrapani Ruel. In fact, she called me as was I planning to write about MC’s story.

If GS’s story is quite simple, MC’s story is short of being miraculous. MC was one of the few people who got the Vajrapani Ruel right after I wrote about it. A few days ago, MC called me to share with me her personal testimony about it.

MC is 26 years – old fourth child of a brood of six. MC has been requesting for the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant but because of production delays, I advised him not to get it. When he read about the Vajrapani Ruel he decided to get it instead.

As it turns out, he bought it for his sister who was left by her husband and was experiencing so many financial problems. According to MC, PY her sister is the best sister anyone can request for, because she helped their parents send the other siblings to school. So when MC found out that PY has been having financial problems because she is single handedly sending her 3 kids to school and rearing them up, he and his other siblings have been helping out heir eldest sister who have been really nice towards them.

However, like other financial problems, the bills and the problems seem to just keep on piling up. MC desperately wants to help PY and he cannot think of any other way but to help create good opportunity for her. As mentioned he initially decided to get the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant, but in the end settled for the Vajrapani Ruel.

MC gave the Vajrapani Ruel as gift to his eldest sister, PY. PY didn’t hide the fact that she hated the gift especially she felt that they could have used simply used the money for something more practical. But to simply amuse MC she decided to carry it anyway. That was several weeks ago.

Just recently, MC called me up to share with me that they totally believe, and by they he refers to his family and even PY, that the Vajrapani Ruel did worked for his sister. According to MC, her sister PY just recently got promoted and bypassed 2 levels up, so the additional pay is very significant. But more than that, PY was informed by the parents of her ex – husband, that they just recently found out that their son has not been supporting his children, and that they would like to help and they in fact has sort of disowned their son.

It has to be noted that PY has maintained good relationship with her parents – in – law despite of her relationship with their son getting really sour. This is because her ex – husband’s parents, according to MC, has always been fair and really nice towards MC.

Sincerity and Selflessness are Important Ingredients for an Amulet to Work Really Well

Published January 28, 2015 by jptan2012

sinceritySometimes I wonder why Feng Shui charms or Buddhist amulet works better for others but not for some people. For example, the Vajrapani Ruel, simply having it for a few days garnered a miraculous result for a man who sincerely wants to get a miracle for his mother. The WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, which has a very high personal testimony profile works really well for a lot of people but can’t be denied that for some people, at best it only makes a gradual easing of life for them.

I believe that whether one believes in these things or not, it is bound to work. However, why does it work so well for others and for others it simply acts a paddle for a strong current of the river?

I believe there are a lot of factors that leads to the difference in the result such as karma (both personal and collective), over – all Feng Shui of the house or office (if one is continuously exposed to bad Feng Shui), but I believe one essential ingredient in the difference is sincerity and selflessness.

Allow me to use JS as an example. When he got the Vajrapani Ruel his sincere wish was not for himself but for his mother. Sincerity and Selflessness are both present thus the swiftness of his miraculous experience should not be surprising.

When I reviewed the personal testimonies from readers about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I noticed that sincerity is always present and that a lot of them wished for a good life not for themselves but for someone else, be it a family member or a friend. Of course, there are some wishes that are quite personal, but if you notice, even these doesn’t really stem out of selfishness but rather simply wanting to better themselves.

Allow me to share a story. One common Buddhist practice is the offering of light whether candle, oil, butter or artificial (like using lamps) to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. It is said that this happened in a temple in China. As a sign of his gratitude, a rich businessman would always make light offerings to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, he will offer the annual light offering, which is for the whole year of lighted lamp for certain Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, he will also make monthly light offerings, weekly light offerings, furthermore he will also offer light offerings for special occasions, but more than that he will also make daily light offerings. It is said that he spends thousands and thousands of money for all his light offerings. He’d go to the temple everyday to do this.

One day, when he arrived at the temple, an old beggar lady approached her to ask for some coin. He gave the old woman some coins (for the purpose of writing this story let’s just say he gave him 2 pesos) and then he proceeded to the temple counter to buy and donate money for his daily light offering. Beside him was the old woman also and requesting for a candle so that she can make a daily light offering. She then proceeded to make a donation of 2 pesos. He was surprised and impressed with the old beggar lady so he gave her a few more pesos, the old beggar lady then proceeded to give all the money that the rich businessman to the temple as her donation for the daily light offering. The rich businessman then told him why don’t she leave some money for her to eat and the old beggar lady simply smiled at him and said that she wished to give the daily light offering for the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.selflessness.letters

They then proceeded to make their light offering. At that time they were only two of them who is doing the light offering, and after they made their daily light offering, the old beggar lady with her single candle, and the rich businessman with his hundreds of light.

Naturally, because he lighted hundreds of candle it took him some time to finish and the old beggar lady has already left when he finished. Just when he was about to step out of the temple hall, a strong gust of wind suddenly blew out all the fire in the hall, except for one candle, and it was the candle of that was lighted by the old beggar lady.

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.

After having heard of the full story, the monk then said that he believes it happened so that the rich businessman learn a valuable lesson, and that is sincerity and selflessness in doing things. You see while the whole temple may have been lighted because of his numerous offerings, it is clear that he only gives what is convenient for him and unlike the old beggar lady who sincerely gave everything that she has and was selfless in the process not worrying about her food.

The story hopes to draw out the lesson of the importance of sincerity and selflessness and I believe that you will be able to tap into the power of your amulets or charms like the Vajrapani Ruel or the various images of the Buddha and Bodhisattvas that one wear as pendant if this is combined with the spirit of sincerity and selflessness.
