Miracles Do Happen But More Often Than Not It Happens In A Way That We Don’t Expect!

Published Marso 15, 2017 by jptan2012

Miracles do happen, I’m quite sure of that. And regardless of your religion, I think it is universal belief in all religions that miracles do happen. But I guess the problem is our interpretation of miracles.

You see most preachers; dharma masters, teachers or writers like me tend to talk about the very tangible miracles more often than those non – tangible miracles. For example, we will talk about the miraculous healing; the unexpected almost out – of – nowhere financial blessings, and the like. Why? Because these types of miracles are truly amazing and can easily be explained that they are miracles. But the truth is miracles happen more often than we realize, and the truth is they might not be as amazing (for the lack of a better term) than those miraculous healing, unexpected miraculous financial or wealth or money luck or blessing.

I know this because I know I’m guilty of frequently writing about these amazing miracles before. This was not malicious, I write, and I presume the preachers, the dharma masters, and other writers write about the amazing miracles because they are also ecstatic about it.

Lately, I do my best to write about ‘simple’ miracles to let people understand that miracles do happen. We just have to open our eyes to them, to see when a miracle happens. But looking to what I have written although it was not as much as a conscious effort that I should write about simple miracles, I realized that I always have tried to stay grounded and have my reader stay grounded because I have several articles that talks about simple miracle. I don’t remember all of them but some of them, including the more recent ones, are:

I have another reader who claims that she hasn’t experienced a miracle from her Vajrapani Ruel. She is a 50 something married woman who is being constantly being beaten by her husband. She doesn’t have a money of her own, and it was only thru her daughter who works here in Manila that she was able to get her Vajrapani Ruel. Her wish is that for her to have a better life and that she will have her own money and that her husband will stop physically abusing her. When she said that she didn’t experienced any miracle from her Vajrapani Ruel, and mind you she gets to talk to me only by hiding from her husband, I offered to get it back and return her money. But for some reason she refused and wanted to hold on to her Vajrapani Ruel. I realized that she just needs to talk and needs somebody to listen to her. In the process of our communication she mentioned that her sister whom she has not talked to for quite some time contacted her when she found out from my reader’s daughter that she has no money of her own and that she is being physically abused by her husband. Her sister offered to get her and give her own small business. Lo and behold, she refused it. I ask her why, she said she really hasn’t talked to her sister for a long time so why would she help her. She was suspicious of her motives, and that she is praying her to Bodhisattva Vajrapani that her husband will change. You see, she has her miracle, only she refuses to see it because she is dictating what type of miracle she will have.

One of the things that I always tell my readers, especially those who requests for the Vajrapani Ruel and other amulets, is that – EXPECT A MIRACLE BUT DON’T DICTATE IT! – because by dictating the miracle, it will make you blind to the real miracle.

A Financial Blessing or Miracle for the Born – Again Christian Who Is Not A Believer of Amulets: How A Simple Miracle Turned a Woman into Believing that there is Indeed Something with the Vajrapani Ruel!

Published Marso 14, 2017 by jptan2012

Since I started this blog in 2012 and became a Feng Shui writer I have been accused of a lot of things, but the most common one is that I’m the devil and that what I write is about is the work of the devil. Although I don’t have the formal statistics, I would say that it is not an exaggeration that 95% or even more of those accusations came from people who profess that they are born – again Christian.

Now, let us jump to the EV who requested that she remains to be identified as EV on this blog, and who was featured on this blog twice already for the miracles that she experienced with the Vajrapani Ruel. What I have never mentioned on this blog is that EV belongs to a born – again Christian (Protestant) family. Her daughters were raised as born – again Christians.

In fact, I remember the first time I met her she mentioned that she is not showing her Vajrapani Ruel to her husband.

Anyway, today I would like to share with you again another miracle that EV experienced. Well, technically it’s not her miracle but being a loving mother that she is, whenever her children gets something it is like she herself experienced them.

EV’s second daughter works for big reputable company. Lately, she has been ranting that she is no longer happy with her company because she is overworked, because she is actually the one who does the work of her boss. But more than that she is no longer financially satisfied or contented with what she is getting from the company.

Being a loving mother that she is, she naturally got worried about her daughter’s ranting. And so she decided to give her Vajrapani Ruel to her daughter. Her daughter who was raised as born – again Christian and who has chosen it to be her faith was naturally a little repulsive to the idea of carrying it. But, I guess, she was raised well and so she indulged her mother by keeping it.

At this point, allow me to share with you what EV emailed me…CVinluan

Dear JP,
I gave my Vajrapani Ruel amulet to my youngest daughter because her bazi chart for this year is not good (I’m a fengshui believer so somehow I understand it) and besides you comfirmed about her chart (not good). I just told her either she wears it or put it in her bag. By the way, she always rants about her work because she is not well -compensated.
The said amulet was with her in less than a week and should I say a “miracle” happened because her boss proposed that when she closes a project with their prospect clients she gets a commission. This means an additional income and no doubt, it’s the Vajrapani Ruel which helped my daughter (note: she doesn’t believe so much in fengshui). I advised her to be always positive even if things are not falling into right places.
I found a real friend who is kind, understanding, honest and trustworthy — that’s you, JP. Thanks a lot for the help.

Your friend,
Mrs. E.V.

What EV didn’t share here but she told me offline is that they consider it as a miracle because it is something that her boss wouldn’t consider doing because it is simply out of his character. Second, she is not in good terms with her boss. And for it to be offered to her a few days after she got the Vajrapani Ruel is simply too much of a coincidence.

EV also told me that her daughter also got to thinking that there must be something really powerful with the Vajrapani Ruel. They consider this as a miracle, because the amount of projects or business as EV shared with me can go as high as Php 10,000,000.00 (Ten Million Pesos) or US$200,000.00!

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.

Chant – A – Mantra (13): For Proper Guidance For Big and Immediate Matters Chant the Alternative Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani!

Published Marso 8, 2017 by jptan2012
vajrapani-6

Namo Vajrapani Bodhisattva

Sometimes even when we have amulets we cannot just rely on our amulets to ‘do things for us’, there will be times when we have to make decisions. Things will not always be presented on a silver platter even if we have a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel.

For example, when we have to decide on what business project to take when we can only take one. If we are presented with two good things, it can be hard to decide on which on to take if we can have one only.

Chanting the alternative mantra of Vajrapani Bodhisattva for a full 10 malas (one mala is 108x) is a way to tap into the wisdom of Bodhisattva Vajrapani and use it to our advantage.

Admittedly, this will work faster and better if one has the Vajrapani Ruel, which is considered as one of the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, but not all of us has the Vajrapani Ruel but that doesn’t’ mean we can’t chant this. It only means that we should be able to truly align ourselves with Vajrapani Bodhisattva, because constantly having the Vajrapani Ruel on our body or around us makes us naturally more attuned to the energies of Bodhisattva Vajrapani.

The alternative mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani is:

NAMO JIN GANG SHÔU PUSA

Chant – A – Mantra (11):For Impossible Financial, Health and Relationship Problems Chant the Miraculous Response Mantra of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin!

Published Marso 1, 2017 by jptan2012

I have shared several powerful mantras on this blog, but today allow me to share with you another very powerful mantra. So powerful that we shouldn’t use if it is not really necessary. If I were to equate this mantra to amulets, I would say that this mantra is the Vajrapani Ruel, which is considered to be the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon,

If you find yourself in deep trouble be it financial, health and / or relationships, by chanting this mantra, you will find that by chanting this mantra your problems will gradually ease up. This mantra is usually chanted after reading a sutra of Kuan Yin, like the Universal Gateway of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara (Kuan Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon). But there it is usually chanted three times only. However, if you find yourself in deep trouble, chanting this mantra should help gradually, but there are certain rules that you need to do to make Bodhisattva Kuan Yin’s Miraculous Mantra.kuan-yin

First, one should go vegan (no meat, no eggs, no fish, no chicken, no milk, no cheese, no butter, no fish sauce, no marshmallows or gelatin) for three days before starting the mantra. On the fourth day you can start chanting the mantra, but make sure that you remain vegan all through out you’re doing the mantra, up to 7 days after you have received your wish or when your problems has eased up.

The mantra should also be chanted between 6AM and 9AM everyday for 1080 times (10 full malas) under deep meditative level.

I once recommended to a reader whose mother is in comatose, after ‘religiously’ doing this ritual for 2 months, her mom went out of coma, and doctors say that it’s a miracle.

Bodhisattva Kuan Yin’s Miraculous Response Mantras is the following:

ān mā nī bā mī hòng   mā gĕ ní yá nà

jí dū tè bā dá  jí tè xiē nà  wēi dá lǐ gĕ

sā ér wá ér tă   bǔ lǐ xī tǎ gĕ

nà bǔ là nà   nà bǔ lǐ   diū tē bān nà

nà mā lú jí    shuō là yĕ shoū hē

Money Luck or Financial Luck Blessings Received in About 15 Days Upon Receiving the Vajrapani Ruel and A Copy of the Traditional Sutra Amulet: A Reader from Dubai Shares Her Personal Miraculous Testimony!

Published Pebrero 28, 2017 by jptan2012

I was really hesitant to write about this story because (1) I don’t want people to think that all miracles from the Vajrapani Ruel and the Traditional Sutra Amulet are almost always instantaneous, and (2) Cecil, my reader who shares this miracle with us has not had all her wishes fulfilled.

Cecil emailed me a few weeks ago. I honestly don’t remember much what she said in the email but requested her to just send me a message. She got in touch with thru Whatapp because she is in Dubai and it’s one of the most convenient ways to send a message for free. Please see her message here, which is thankfully written in English, so I don’t need to translate it anymore. The last part is something about her husband so I will no longer translate it because it is a little personal.image3

To make the long story short, I sent her a Vajrapani Ruel and a Traditional Sutra Amulet, I think it was the Avatamsaka Sutra that I sent.

She first contacted me as you can see on Feb. 8, 2017, and last February 24, 2017 she contacted me again to share some good news.

Basically her concerns with regards to money were answered by having her flats in Dubai filled with tenants, whereas before she got the Vajrapani Ruel and the Traditional Sutra Amulet she was a little problematic about them.

Allow me to share with you her message.

image2

Translations (1): Puno na may flats / My flats are already filled. (2) Tapos nag notice yung isang tenant ko na aalis na sila end of the month. / Then my other tenant gave me notice that they’ll be leaving by end of the month.

image1

Translations: (1) Panic ako kasi bayaran ng check this March 15 / I panicked because check payments is on March 15. (2) Sunod sunod na ang nag inquire / inquiries were made one after the other. (3) Puno na ang flats by coming end of this month, kasi nga lipatan dito is end of the month / Flats are already filled up this coming end of month, because moving in and out here is every end of the month. (4)Nagbigay din ng mga reservations…ang bilis / They gave reservations fees already..it was quite fast.

Why did I decide to share her story? This is because I believe that she herself played an important role in ensuring that she gets her Vajrapani Ruel and Traditional Sutra Amulet miracle fast. What did she do? In my other conversations with Cecil, it is quite apparent that she is very spiritual. Not religious but spiritual. She has become opened to the goodness rather than the bad in this world. One example is that she has read about the people who were bashing me or the amulets, and although she had doubts, she chooses to read and read and analyze things and look for the good. A friend said that what she did became a testament to the miracles shared here, he may be partly right, but the truth is I think it is more of a testament to her goodness. I know it’s not an isolated case because in our conversations, where she had to call me long distance, because whatapp voice calls are not allowed in Dubai, I can really sense that she makes it a point to see the good in everything, and I think this makes it possible for her to get her miracles really fast.

An Auspicious First Full Moon of the 2017 Lunar Year But We Need to Keep Ourselves Protected Because of the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse!

Published Pebrero 10, 2017 by jptan2012

Tomorrow Feb. 11, 2017 or the 15th day of first lunar month of the year 2017 (Year of the Fire Rooster) is an auspicious day except for people born under the sign of the Pig, which is actually their ‘conflict’ day.

Anyway, tomorrow Feb. 11, 2017 (15th day of the Lunar Month of 2017) is the first full – moon day of the lunar year. On that day, you can invoke the help of the God of Joy and God of Wealth. By making a simple ritual.

Before 9AM, you should face northeast, where the God of Joy is said to be on that day, light some incense and simply say a short wish. Then place the incense on a small incense burner. Then face south, which is where the God of Wealth is then light some incense, then say a short wish. Then place the incense on a small incense burner.

Note: Use red incense sticks. 3 sticks will do. The incense burner can be a small bowl filled with salt or rice. You can still use the rice for cooking but the salt should be thrown away.

Sincerely doing good things tomorrow will double the merit for good karma or blessings.

However, tomorrow we will also have the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse. This is an eclipse when the Earth’s shadow will block part of the sun’s ray from reaching the moon, thus making the moon slightly darken than usual. This is an inauspicious event, and in a way it serves as a warning to us that this year’s bad energies will come mostly from Earth, meaning those are manmade. However, the Penumbral Lunar Eclipse may also bring in some energy, so it is better to be indoors when it happens. This particular eclipse is not as bad as other eclipse in the sense that it doesn’t completely block out the borrowed yang energy (light) of the moon from the sun, but it will still have some bad effect, so those people who have a somewhat bad forecast this year should absolutely be indoors when this happens.

Note: Most of you, especially if you practice Feng Shui, you would know that any eclipse will have some negative effects because it is when the Yin wins over the Yang!

It is also best to keep your lights open and if possible wear your amulets. I for one, whenever there is an eclipse, I always make sure that I’m protected and have my Vajrapani Ruel with me.

Marital Problem Fixed, Financial Problem Solved with the Unexpected Coming In of a Huge Amount of Money / Problem with Bank Loan Reversed: Two Personal Testimonies of Two Readers with Two Different Sources of Miracles! – And Why Do I Write About Miraculous Personal Testimonies?

Published Pebrero 1, 2017 by jptan2012

If there’s one thing that my experienced with Feng Shui and with my belief in (mainly) Buddhism and Taoism, is that MIRACLES DO HAPPEN! And it happens more often than we realize, it is just a matter of being able to recognize it.

I have so many miraculous stories to share, however, I simply don’t have enough time to write them all, on top of it, I will only share miracles that has been shared with me, either in whole or in part thru sms or email, this is so that I have something to show my readers the authenticity of the stories. Before, in order to protect the identity of my readers, I would not share their names and would only put initials. However, I realized I can share their first name and block out some of the important details to prove their identity, and lately if you notice those are the only personal testimonies that I share.

Anyway, today I would like to share with you not one but two personal testimonies of two different readers. I would have wanted to write about it separately but there are so much more things to write about, and truth be told I don’t think you will be happy if I simply write about miraculous personal testimonies of my readers.

But we all have a lesson to learn from these personal testimonies. It is not simply about the Vajrapani Ruel(1), or the Illness Suppression Amulet(1), or any amulet that I happened to write about, but it is about the experiences of readers who like a lot of you may be going through some problems in life. The problems may be personal that has something to do with relationships like your family or your longing for a partner in life. It can be about your personal growth, it can be about your career. It can be about money or the lack of it. What you are going through right now may be unique, but at the bottom of it, the root is basically the same for most people, and so from their stories we all learn something. And most of all, we are given hope that there is something else that we can do.

Such is the case of Grace. I met Grace because of her sister Mercy who is reader and a believer of Feng Shui. According to Mercy her life while she can still hope for something better is actually fine, and when I wrote about the Traditional Sutra Amulets (1)(Diamond Sutra and The Sutra On the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva) she just felt an affinity with it. Something seems to tell her that she should get it, even though technically speaking the Traditional Sutra Amulet(2) (TSA) is actually a Buddhist religious item and not a Feng Shui item and Mercy is a Catholic. Furthermore, she felt that she should also get one for her sister, Grace, who is actually going through a bad patch in her life.

According to Mercy, her sister Grace got separated from her husband about a year ago, and while Grace and her husband felt that they still love each other, the meddling of the in – laws (mostly the parents of Grace’s husband’s parents) is making things difficult. Grace’s husband is the only son. On top of that, Grace’s business is having some financial problems; she is in danger of losing her business, something that she has strived to build for more than ten years now.

sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

Mercy decided to get 2 copies of the TSA, she’ll give one copy to Grace. When I met Mercy, Grace tagged along. She obviously wasn’t a believer and it became apparent when she repeatedly questioned me as to how do the TSA’s work and why are they so pricey. I patiently answered all her questions and told her that technically speaking they are not paying for the TSA, which she calls book amulet, but rather the money goes to either feeding of the monks or images of the Buddha or Bodhisattva. I clearly remembered that she said well hope that her sister is shelling out for would not go to ‘statues’ but rather to the feeding of monks or ‘better yet to hungry even if they are not from the temple’. During our conversation, she subtly but repeatedly discouraged Mercy to get all TSAs, both THE DIAMOND SUTRA and THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA.

I met them last December, I think it was in the first week of December, and I didn’t hear from them again, not until a few days ago when Grace sent me a message. Apparently, she the non – believe experienced a wonderful miracle, which she attributes to the Traditional Sutra Amulet. Mercy clarified that while she hasn’t had a great miracle she feels that everything seems to be going smoother now.

image1

Translation for first Filipino Sentence: I DIDN’T DO ANYTHING ELSE… Translation of the Second & Third Filipino Sentence: Maybe you noticed that I was bugging you with all those question because I really don’t believe in Feng Shui. But now I’m a believer.

Going back to Grace. When I talked to her on the phone she said that maybe her first miracle was when she and her husband decided to patch things up last Christmas, and they went back to living together again this January. She said at that time she just ignored it and thought maybe it was really just their love that brought them together (and I sort of agree with her, it really is there love that brought them back together). But then a second miracle happened.

She has a business that should have been doing really well, however, her biggest competitions are the bigger companies that has bigger financial capital thus being able to lower their prices because they can buy things by the bulk and get the items lower and in turn they can pass it on to the consumers at the lower price also. In order to be able to compete with them and in order to survive she needs a big boost on her finances. Her husband’s business while stable is not the liquid to be able to help her, and while her family tried to help, she knows that what they can afford to give her is not enough to help ensure that she will survive the big competitors. At that time that she was given the TSA she was already contemplating shifting to another smaller business or closing it down.

When she and her husband got back together, her husband had a heart – to – heart and man – to – man talk with his father, Grace’s father – in – law. He told him that their meddling with his family is the cause of their marital problem. He also told them the truth that for years, they have treated Grace unfairly, especially his mother who has been quite harsh and critical of whatever Grace do. Surprisingly, the father accepted his mistake and told his son that he will talk to his wife also. At that time Grace’s husband also mentioned the problem of Grace’s business.

According to Grace that she initially doesn’t believe in the Traditional Sutra Amulet (which she call Book Amulet) but because it was pricey she decided to simply follow my instruction and decided to ‘dump’ it behind the images of her Catholic saints.

After getting back together, Grace’s father – in – law paid them a visit. Her mother – in – law didn’t go with him because she is feeling sour that she was partly ‘blamed’ for what happened to Grace and her husband. But Grace’s father – in – law apologized for how they treated Grace and he also offered to finance the expansion of Grace’s business to make it more competitive!!! Of course, Grace initially said no. But the father – in – law actually said that he would take offense if Grace refuses to accept the money. Best of all when Grace had her lawyer come up with an agreement stating as to when she will pay the ‘loan’ the father – in – law tore it up and told her to pay only when able, and that he will consider it as a payment if Grace will cook for them once a week. Grace said this is funny because they used to criticize, especially the mother – in – law, Grace’s cooking. But Grace said she would be more than happy to do that. What is nice here is that Grace never harbored any ill – feeling towards her in – laws because she understands that they felt like she ‘stole’ their son from them.

Grace considers this as a miracle because of the following:

  1. Although a lot of the ‘bullying’ came from her mother – in – law, her father – in – law is a traditional Chinese patriarch and will never humble himself for the younger generation.
  2. The father – in – law believes that Grace shouldn’t be working, much less having her own business. He feels that she should just help her husband in his business and their family business.
  3. His father – in – law whose money is all hard – earned was never ‘generous’ with money.

Before we ended our conversation, Grace said maybe her mother – in – law would be a future miracle.

Similarly, another reader also shared another miracle. Evelyn is a mother of 4 children and is a wife of an Overseas Filipino Worker. I have met Evelyn once and I simply love the ‘energy’ of kindness and love that she exudes.

Evelyn’s eldest child, his son, lives in Australia. I believe he is doing quite well in Australia. And he recently decided to get his very own home. He applied for a bank loan, but even before he got the approval of his bank loan he decided to pay give the non – refundable down payment to the said house. I believe that the down was a substantial amount.

Then comes the bad news from the bank. It seems like there seems to be a minor technicality and he might not get the loan. This is not an option because he already made a down and it is non – refundable.

Evelyn contacted me to ask for help in terms of what mantras to chant to help his son get the loan from the bank. I gave her the mantras. And he waiting started. I suppose it’s an excruciating, heart – pounding wait for them. But in the end the good news is that he got the loan!

Evelyn absolutely believes that they got it because of the power of the mantras. This is such a simple but profound miracle only because Evelyn’s son savings and better future is at stake her.

Two different miracles, two different channel (one is an amulet and the other one is the chanting of mantras)! Why did I decide to write these two miracles in one article?

This is to show that it’s not all about amulets. Mantras will also work as well, and it works best if you have faith and you sincerely do it and pouring in some love will make it more powerful.

We cannot deny that amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel(2), the Traditional Sutra Amulet(3), the Illness Suppression Amulet(2), etc. are an essential part of Buddhism, Taoism, and Feng Shui. We cannot deny that they work. We cannot deny that sometimes it is essential to have them. We cannot deny that things may work faster to our favor if we have them. But we also cannot deny and has to acknowledge that even without amulets we can still get the things that we aspire for. That’s what the mantras are for. Or that’s why we have the power of the prayers as easy as that!

But remember, whether it is thru amulets, mantras, or prayers, that miracles sometimes doesn’t come in a way we want it to be, or in a way we expect it to be. As I always say we should expect miracles, but do not dictate it!
