Recite – A – Sutra (10): Blessings from Reciting “The Sutra of the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva”!

Published Marso 29, 2017 by jptan2012

Regular readers of this blog knows that I’m a great believe of reciting sutras because reciting sutras has the power to attract numerous blessings and offer strong protection to a person who recites it. In fact, simply having a copy of a sutra, especially if it’s the Traditional Sutra Amulet format, if one is unable to recite will give you financial blessings, peace, happiness, and protection. This blog has shared some of the personal testimonies of my readers who has requested for the Traditional Sutra Amulets (TSA).

This is a copy of the traditional SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA that my Guru Lama sent me.

But today, in this post, allow me to share with you some of the wonderful blessings you may receive if you recite the SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA. These are the blessings especially mentioned in the sutra. But to understand it further, I have copy – pasted the commentary (short explanation) of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua of the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas. This is to make the promise of the blessing a little more clearer.

Note: Earth Store Bodhisattva is also known or called as Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha and Di Zhang Pu Sa.

Here is the list of the blessings as stated in the sutra itself followed by commentary of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua:

First, they will be protected by gods and dragons. Gods, celestial dragons and celestial asuras will protect you because you know how to recite the Earth Store Sutra. Asuras in the heavens enjoy blessings but no authority. They swear to protect you. Gandharvas are music spirits before the Jade Emperor. They are also called “sniffing spirits”. Whenever the Jade Emperor lights up a particular incense, Gandharvas come. There are male gandharvas and female gandharvas. Male gandharvas wear a horn similar to chimeras on their heads. Once they get a whiff of this scent, they will dance and sing, so the celestial music rings in the heavens. Recite Earth Store Sutra and gandharvas will sing praises as they dance on air. Garudas are Great Peng birds with golden wings. Kinnaras are music spirits too. Maharagas are giant pythons. All of them protect someone who recite the Earth Store Sutra or bow to Earth Store Bodhisattva.

Second, their good roots will increase daily. Sometimes cultivators are extremely bold as they set their resolve on Bodhi; consequently doing a lot of merit. Sometimes they turn around and withdraw. They retreat because they feel that they do not experience any responses despite all the merit they do for Buddhism. Good results increase daily means that they do no retreat; instead they grow by the day. They develop blessings and wisdom, do good and virtuous deeds, achieve merit and always move forward vigorously in Buddhism. Why? It is because you recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, recite the Fundamental Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra or pay respects to Earth Store Bodhisattva that you experience the response of growing good effects on a daily basis.

Third, they will amass supreme causes pertaining to sagehood. This means they do various jobs in Buddhism, such as printing sutras and building temples. Repairing bridges and paving roads are about amassing supreme causes pertaining to sagehood too. Making sutras, turning the great Dharma wheel and doing all these good deeds are about cultivating the path to Bodhi and amassing supreme causes pertaining to sagehood.

Fourth, they will not retreat from Bodhi. Sometimes we are vigilant and sometimes we are lax in our cultivation. Vigilant, we are quite bold with everything. Lax, we feel that we are not getting any responses from any work we do, so we retreat. Recite Earth Store Sutra, recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, and bow and make offerings to Earth Store Bodhisattva; we do not renounce our resolve for Bodhi. Our wish for enlightenment moves ahead and grows on a daily basis, never retreating.

Fifth, their clothing and food will be abundant. We are not short of clothes or food. People work their entire lives for those three meals a day. They work hard out of fear of dying because of starvation or cold. They are always looking for more money. When we did not have any money, we want 10,000 dollars. When we get our wish and earn 10,000, we find that lacking. We tell ourselves, if we had 100,000 dollars, we will retire. But when we make that 100,000 dollars, we remember that our kids have to go to school. We do not have enough money. We want to buy a car, so there is not enough money. We want to buy a cruise boat, so there is not enough money still. Thinking even bigger, we may want an airplane. Hundred thousand dollars does not do any good. We look for money.

When we find that one million dollars and are ready to buy that plane, the price of the airplane has gone up. We could have purchased it for $990,000 before, but now it is $9,900,000. The price has gone up by ten times. We cannot afford it once again. We can never catch up because of our greed. We were going to be satisfied and retired as millionaires, but we end up continuing with the pursuit. We are never satisfied and never content.

If you recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, recite Earth Store Sutra, bow and make offerings to Earth Store Bodhisattva, you will always enjoy more than enough clothing and food. When you want to buy an airplane, you will earn more than enough money for two airplanes. That is how wonderful this Dharma is. In that case, I will hurry up and recite Earth Store Bodhisattva! Recite Earth Store Bodhisattva in the hopes of buying two airplanes is greed. Large amounts of greed will not bring about results. All we can do is try our best while reciting. Do not care so much about whether there will be results. Some say, “Master, I feel I am tricked by what you say!” Then what? Do not be tricked. Consequently, we must be content and be patient with what comes.

Sixth, they will never succumb to epidemics. Recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name and you will not contract any contagious diseases. Epidemics cannot touch you because there seems to be a border between you and the disease.

I remember when I was in Northeast China during a plague. A household of eleven had thirteen deaths in three days. How can a household of eleven have two more deaths than the number in the family? Two were bearers of gifts. Eleven was not a large enough number, two more had to be added. Out of these two, one was a worker for the family and the other was a distant relative who came to visit. They were additions to the eleven that made the total number of dead thirteen. When I was there, I took four young disciples with me. “We are going to go and rescue people!” How? I told them, “Let us recite the Great Compassion Mantra to duel the plague spirit.” We went to villages plagued by this epidemic and circled the place three times, reciting the Great Compassion Mantra. When we finished reciting Great Compassion Mantra, the epidemic vanished. So reciting the Great Compassion Mantra is very effective and wonderful.

Seventh, they will escape calamities involving fire and water. Recite Earth Store’s name, there will be no floods or fire, or they will not drown in water and not be burned by fire. They will naturally float to shallow spots and reach the shore when they fall into the sea; they will naturally be rescued when fire is closing in on them.

Eighth, they will never be threatened by thieves. Why are you robbed and stolen from? It is because you unreasonably took other people’s money for your own. You had lied in the past so you are robbed in this life. You have to pay your due. This is the reason why you are robbed and stolen from. All this is a result of cause and effect. There is nothing strange about it. If you really understand this, then you will see the cause and effect in any state and recognize this cyclic law.

Ninth, they will be respected by all who see them. Recite Guanshiyin Bodhisattva (also known as Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Kuan Yin) and Earth Store Bodhisattva’s names and pay respect to them; people will respect you and feel close to you. They feel as if they see relatives from long ago. They feel so close to you, as if they have come home. This is like being along overseas where you know no one. When you meet some old friends, you feel awkward. You do not know whether you are happy or sad, whether to smile or cry, Or you want to laugh and cry! You cry because you see someone dear to you. You laugh because you feel secure now.

People respect you at the sight of you. No one criticizes you or mistreats you. Do not say, “You know, I am an upasaka! You must respect me!” Or, “I am a Dharma Master, bow to me when you see me!” This is not about forcing others to respect you. The saying goes, “ Musk will naturally smell nice, why let the wind blow on it?” If you were really virtuous, do not act like some medicinal patches salesperson. “Oh, my medicinal patch is the best. Arthritis, rheumatism, numbness, just put on this patch and it will cure itself even if you do not put on the patch. Do not sell yourself, fearing that others will not know you. “Do you know who I am? I am the most powerful Buddhist Dharma Protector. I am a senior Dharma Protect at so and so temple. Also, I am the Board of Director of some charity organization. I am also the supporter of some place, etc., etc.” One introduces oneself because one is afraid that other people will not know. Stop, that is pretense and untrue. Advertise and sell yourself, then blind individuals will not know and be swindled by you; but people with eyes will see it right away, finding you pathetic.

Tenth, they will be aided by ghosts and spirits. If you have real merit, why publicize it for yourself? Ghosts, spirits, & Dharma protectors will help and support you. They will help you and resolve your difficulties from behind the scenes. No need to publicize. The tenth advantage is that all ghosts, good and bad, and all spirits, good and bad, will all help you. Evil spirits will also help you? Is this due to the power of Earth Store Bodhisattva? It is by the power of Earth Store Bodhisattva. All evil ghosts and spirits become Dharma protectors.

If I recite Earth Store King Bodhisattva, will he tell people to come and scold me? No. Why? To tell you the truth, you are not up the level yet! You have not even finished studying, how can you pass the test? You pass when you graduate from college. Why test you if you just entered college and have not even graduated? Do not think that scolding is bad. Scoldings are tests. If you can take it, you pass. If you pass, keep going forward and cultivate. Do you cultivate any more after you pass the test? Cultivate even more once you pass. If not, what is the use of passing the test? What is the use of studying to earn a Ph.D.? It is the same idea. If you understand, you understand; if you do not understand, there is nothing I can do.

Eleventh, women who want to, can be reborn as men. The eleventh advantage is that if you are tired of being a woman, by paying respects and making offerings, praising and reciting the Fundamental Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra, or reciting and praising Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, then you as a woman will turn into a man. Perhaps it is not because you are tired of being a woman that you wish to become a man. You feel that it is inconvenient being a woman and therefore wish to become a man. You make that kind of vow because everything will be convenient then. Earth Store Bodhisattva will make your wishes come true.

Twelfth, women who want to, can be reborn as daughters of national leaders and officials. Any wish to go from a woman to a man will be met. So will the wish to go from a man to a woman. Men may recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, bow to an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva or recite the Fundamental Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra to become a woman who teaches living beings. Women usually have less of a temper, are more detail-oriented and speak as if they have affinities with others. This is why some Bodhisattvas make the vow to go from being men to women. They go from being men to women to propagate the Buddhadharma and teach living beings. Consequently, these women are not average women, but daughters to kings and ministers. They enjoy a lot of power to influence people so that people may develop their faith and intention to cultivate. These women have been reborn again because of their vows.

Thirteenth, they will have upright appearances. The thirteenth advantage is not only about being women, but women who are intelligent and wise, nice looking without any flaws. The nose, eyes, ears and mouth all look the way they should. Someone asks, “Are there ears that do not look like ears. Are there eyes that do not look like eyes?” Some women have triangular eyes or strange looking eyes that look about as if they are ready to steal some cows. They do not look so elegant. They are rather crude, improper and less than perfect. The nose is on top of the head, with nostrils pointed upward. What do you think that is like? Some women have one eye up close to the sky and one eye close to the floor, ears on the back of her head, and a mouth on the chin. They do not look quite like people, not quite like ghosts, and not quite like monkeys. If they were a product of evolution, how is it that they do not look like anybody else but they are the only ones who look that way? This is an improper and imperfect look. If you wish to become women, your looks ought to be perfect and proper. If your features were proper-looking, people will feel a sense of affinity with you. If your features were improper, people take a look and run away as if they saw a yaksha.

Fourteenth, they will often be born in the heavens. The fourteenth advantage surpasses those described before. They are born in the heavens often to enjoy heavenly blessings and supremely wonderful bliss.

Fifteenth, they may be emperors or national leaders. The fifteenth is that they may become candidates for emperors by reciting the Earth Store Sutra, bow to Earth Store Bodhisattva, and recite Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name. This is an incredible advantage. “Dharma Master, I do not want to go to the heavens and be an emperor or be a good-looking individual. This Saha World is so miserable, I have had enough already.” You really had enough? There are other opportunities for realizing Buddhahood, the last enumerated advantage is to realize Buddhahood.

Sixteenth, they will have the wisdom to know past lives. They know what they did in their past lives. Perhaps they were political officials, scholars or business people. They know what their last names, first names were, their place of birth and age of death. Now they are in a new house, different from their earlier ones. Those with the power to know past lives know what occurred in their past lives.

Seventeenth, they will obtain whatever they seek. The 17th advantage is that you get what you want. You want riches and you get them. You want people, you get people. You want food, you get food. You want to be rich and you will own an uncountable amount of gold, silver and jewels. Just avoid following in the footsteps of Disatrers.Reza Shah Pahlavi [the Iranian czar], who earned so much money, none of which was enjoyed during his lifetime. He died empty-handed. How meaningless and worthless. Do not be misers.

Eighteenth, their families will be happy. The 18th advantage is that their family, relatives and friends around them are all happy, safe and at peace. People do not fight or argue. This creates happy families.

Sometimes a lot of afflictions develop in the family, between husband and wife, father and son, brothers and sisters, or in-laws. The most intimate relationship in our lives has to be that between parent and child. When their opinions diverge, the child may think: “Look, the old man’s brain is arcane; his knowledge is arcane; everything he does is arcane. He has not caught up with modern times and does not know how to deal with the contemporary world.” He feels that old people do present a problem. Elders are so concerned about their children that they forgive their children no matter what wrong they do.

The children, unfortunately, are ungrateful and consider the elders in the wrong. Why do you not educate your children well? It is because parents do not know how to teach their children. Consequently children do not know how to take care of their parents. Many problems remain unresolved between parents and their children. As for couples, before marriage, both wear a façade and do not argue or fight. After marriage, both display their temper. The man will let the woman know that he is upset and the woman will let the man know that she is upset. They give each other stress. With this 18 th advantage, your families and friends will always be happy if you get to see an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva or hear the name of Earth Store Bodhisattva.

Nineteenth, they will never undergo any disasters. All disasters and accidents, adverse and inauspicious events are unexpected disasters. Suicide by hanging, drowning at the sea, airplane crashes, car accidents, suicide by taking poisons are all unexpected deaths. When all accidents disappear, all disasters disappear. There will be no more hurt or harm.

Twentieth, they will leave the bad karmic paths forever. No more offense karma. The three evil destinies are the realms of hell-beings, hungry ghosts, and animals.

Twenty-first, they will always reach their destination. The 21st advantage is one where they go everywhere unobstructed and very smoothly. Things are auspicious and beneficial for them.

Twenty-second, their dreams will be peaceful and happy. The 22nd advantage. Unlike average people’s dreams some always have vicious nightmares. They experience nightmares where they are either chased by ghosts, bitten by dogs, or eaten by tigers. Sometimes they are pressed upon by ghosts and cannot move. They panic. Recite The Fundamental Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra and Earth Store Bodhisattva’s name, your dreams will become happy and lucky.

Twenty-third, their deceased relatives will leave suffering behind. The 23rd advantage is that your parents, ancestors, and relatives since beginningless time, will leave suffering and attain bliss, become liberated from birth and death. Many deceased individuals fall into the hells because of their karma. However, because you see an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva or hear the name of Earth Store Bodhisattva, there are 28 advantages that make the deceased leave suffering behind and acquire bliss. The deceased of the present are our deceased parents and relatives in this life. They will leave suffering and attain bliss. The deceased of the past are all of our deceased parents and relatives throughout all of our lives will leave suffering and attain bliss.

Twenty-fourth, they will enjoy blessings earned in previous lives. You ride on the good roots and blessings from your past lives. Having done a lot of merit and planted deep roots of goodness, they enjoy such blessings of lives past. Why are we rich in this life? In past lives we made offerings to the Sangha and offered charity to the poor. In the past, we made offerings to the Triple Jewel, guarded Buddhism, and helped the poor. This is why we are rich in this lifetime. Why are we poor in this life, perhaps so impoverished that we have no clothing or food? In past lives we refused to help the poor. In lives past, we refused to aid the poor. We were very stingy and did not want to give up anything. If we were not so miserly before, but cultivated blessings and wisdom instead, then the blessings done in past lives may be enjoyed in this lifetime.

Twenty-fifth, they will be praised by sages. The 25th is that all Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, sages, and arhats praise you and tell you that you are a good man or a good woman.

Twenty-sixth, they will be intelligent and have keen faculties. The 26th advantage is about being very smart and wise, having a powerful memory. The eyes are bright and they see far. The ears hear well. All six sense faculties are keen.

Twenty-seventh, they will be magnanimous and empathetic. The 27th is being full of sympathy and compassion toward everyone. Providing every individual with joy and relieving one of one’s pain. Regardless of how unkind people are, they treat others kindly and refuse to seek revenge.

Twenty-eighth, they will ultimately realize Buddhahood. What is the 28th advantage? This is the most critical advantage– to irreversibly enter the Bhodi path so that they will definitely become Buddhas in the future.

Positive Omens Signifies Good Outlook in the New House!

Published Oktubre 5, 2016 by jptan2012

Recently, my family and I moved into a new house in a subdivision in Quezon City near some well-known universities. When we were looking into this new place they all depended on me to look at the Feng Shui and to ensure that the energies of the house are really good.

We chance upon this old house that has been abandoned for several years already, and the history is not quite good. However, when I look at the Feng Shui it seems to be good, my only concern is that of a slightly bad history. I know that being abandoned is not entirely bad, because we are renovating it anyway thus it will renew the energies and it will make the house appropriate for the current Feng Shui period. Also while the general Feng Shui of the house is good, the busy main road is on the left side of the house, and it is a heavy main road because that’s the only road going to the university and college near our new house. While technically we are not beside it, it is several houses a way and is outside the subdivision perimeter wall, this is not very good for the bigger aspect of Feng Shui of our house. However, my Guru Lama said we should transfer there because it is a good house for us.

So renovations started, but maybe it out of sadness for leaving our house of a little more than 30 years we were all a little giddy a week before we transferred. My siblings and I, especially my mother, are short tempered. This prompted me to call my Guru Lama and my Feng Shui teacher, and both of them assured me that it is a good house. Besides, the neighborhood that we have from our old house is already a lot different from what it used to be. We now have several factories, and warehouses in the neighborhood. There are a lot of informal settlers, and at night on our street alone there are a lot of ‘street boys and girls’ drinking beer. After a very long discussion and much thought, which actually lasted years, we decided to sell the house and get a new one. Our old house was sold through an agent and so we don’t know much about the new owners, but we decided to be transparent as to why we sold the house. We were informed that they would make it into smaller apartment so and rent it out. Some of the houses on our street has actually become an apartment complex already.

Anyway, going back to our new house, we ensured the Feng Shui are proper, and we followed all the necessary rituals before we moved in. But nevertheless, I silently have been asking for some omens that will inform us that we moved to a good house. And just before we started a ritual, three butterflies flew to the door of the house and went inside. That was a very positive omen.

But it doesn’t end there, after our first night, the following morning I was awaken by the melodious chirping of some birds, and when I look out of my window, there is a rare bird that I have never seen, it looks blue to my eyes. I wanted to take a photo but it flew away even before I was able to get my phone. Then on the other side of the house, my sister, her husband, were also awaken by the melodious chirping of the birds, and when they look out of their window, they said they saw six or seven Maya bird on the tree outside their window! What a wonderful omen! Regular readers should know by now that birds are wonderful omen of good news or good luck!

My mother decided to have her bedroom on the ground floor because she already finds it difficult to keep on climbing the stairs. Her bedroom has a small ‘rock garden’ only it has some plants also. There she found a tortoise (because it seems to live on land thus it should be a tortoise), and this is a very auspicious omen for all of us but specifically for my mom because it signifies stability and long life!

The omens we experienced worked for us, so the next time you moved to a new house or office do look for the omens!

All I Can Hear Are The Chirping of the Birds: A Question of A Reader About Birds Being Messengers of Good Luck!

Published Mayo 16, 2016 by jptan2012

I have been receiving some questions from readers and friends regarding my posts about birds being messengers of good luck. For those who are not yet familiar with it you can read my posts about it by clicking on the links found at the end of this post. But basically Feng Shui experts as wells as Taoist and Buddhists believe that if you come across a bird you will receive some good luck, that it is a sure sign the good luck is coming you way.

The question then is this if you live in an area that makes you come across with birds how would you know whether it is simply a common encounter with birds or there is a message in it. Also, when all you hear are the chirping of the birds, is still bringing you some good news?

Allow me to answer these 2 questions.

Regarding the first question. If you live in an urban area where birds are not very common, then coming across them is a sure sign that good luck is on its way to you. Nevertheless, for example in Metro Manila there are a lot of Maya birds and we may come across them everyday, but unless we come across them and really notice them then there is no message, but if we come across them in such a way that they seem to interact with us then there is a message of good luck in it. It will be hard to say how you will know, but somehow you will know. The interaction should be a little out of the ordinary. For example, in my case when I opened my window there is a big brown bird that looks like a Maya but is not a Maya. Or one other time, they seem to have encircled meet right before I got on the car.

Regarding the chirping of the birds. I would like to site my reader who got the Vajrapani Ruel and Illness Suppression Amulet whose story I’ve shared with you in a post called – Financial Blessing By Way of A Mysterious Money Deposit Received Two Days After Receiving the Vajrapani Ruel: A Personal Testimony of A Reader. Anyway, Angie on the morning of the day she is getting the Vajrapani Ruel, even before she opened her eyes, heard the chirping of the birds, and according to her it seemed like those chirping were meant for her. She remembered my post and knew right there and then that there is some good news for her. Somehow you just know.

In a succeeding post, I will be writing about a story of another reader who got the Vajrapani Ruel and since then kept on hearing the chirping of the bird for several days but no good news or good luck came his way, until he did something. But that is for another post, but today if all you hear is the chirping of the birds but can’t seem to find them, it might be a message for you to act on something for you to get your good luck!

No matter what if there is chirping of birds, or if there are birds or bird then there is some good news.

Say “Thank You”!

Published Mayo 15, 2016 by jptan2012

A heart full of gratitude brings about a lot of blessings. If good luck comes our way, just say ‘Thank You’. Say thank you to the universe, even if it’s no one in particular. In my case, because birds are usually the one who brings me the good news that I will have some good luck, I know this might sound weird and crazy, I just say thank you to them. thank you

Financial Blessings Received by A Reader Became An Extended Blessing For Me: How A Vajrapani Ruel Miraculous Story Experienced by My Reader Helped Me Cope with Feeling Down!

Published Mayo 10, 2016 by jptan2012

Whether we believe in Feng Shui, Amulets, Talismans, or more importantly in Buddhas, Bodhisattvas or Taoist Deities there will come a time in our life that some negativities will affect us, especially if we haven’t really mastered the art of detaching ourselves to worldly behavior. Or sometimes if we are not careful about our practices.

In Zen Buddhism, the practice of meditation is a way to think that everything around is nothing in the sense that it is not permanent. If it is not permanent then it is considered to be not true. It is also in this kind of practice that we should be able to detach ourselves from negative comments of other people. However, this is a practice that requires years before one can master it.

Recently, I was surprised that a person whom I have helped has chosen to be more of a capitalist than a friend. When a regular buyer of her stuff turned to ‘attack’ Buddhism and the Vajrapani Ruel she choose to keep quiet rather than defend a the Vajrapani Ruel even though she has some miraculous experience about it because she seem to be afraid of losing her customers. I was terribly disheartened about this. I mentioned this to my Guru Lama and told him that continuously writing on my blog is sometimes making me more people want to attack me or the Vajrapani Ruel. According to my Guru Lama, this is mostly karmic and I have to go through, and admittedly I have made some mistakes before and some people are capitalizing on these things. But my Guru Lama also added that I should start counting the positive than negative.

And so I did, I realized I have never truly lost a friend because of this blog, but on the contrary I have gained so many friends because of this blog. One of those reader turn friend is BM who aside from being a friend is actually some sort of a guide or counselor. If she were wearing a religious robe she would have been somebody I would call a spiritual counselor. She has a way of letting me see things in a positive way. In fact, I will be writing another post about how she made me see that I should be thankful with something that I was initially complaining about. I thought I have written about her ‘words of wisdom’ a number of times that I should start dedicating a section or category for her.

Another person that I met through my business but developed a deeper friendship with thru this blog is my Malaysian publisher. He is a man so rich beyond the imagination of most people but has remained to be the most humble person I have ever met. Wish I could write more about him but he absolutely doesn’t want me to. He hates being glorified.

Of course, there are a lot more others. And while sometimes people will protect themselves first before sharing the truth, there are a lot more whom I know who will be a staunch protector just because they believe and have experienced some wonderful blessings.

I think, Angie, whose Vajrapani Ruel simple miraculous story I have shared with you in a post called – Financial Blessing By Way of A Mysterious Money Deposit Received Two Days After Receiving the Vajrapani Ruel: A Personal Testimony of A Reader, is also one such person. If you see her she only radiates love and compassion. As I said, I was feeling a little down lately when I received her email. In her email she shares the good news of her miraculous story, albeit simple ones, but still very much a miracle. She has written it really well, that I have decided to post it here verbatim. But what I would really like to share is that how her email came at a point that I needed some chi boosting, and the good news that comes with her email serves as the chi booster. No attacks or lies can negate the fact that people do experience miracles, and of course those who spread the lies about the Vajrapani Ruel are people who have not availed it.

Anyway, please do read Angie’s email and learn more about her simple but wonderful Vajrapani Ruel miraculous story. I am putting it here verbatim:

Dear JP,
The Vajrapani Ruel and Illness Suppression amulets are really, really amazing. Five days after I got the Illness Suppression Amulet from you, and after receiving an unexpected P16,000 plus P6,000 (from an anonymous source) through my bank account,(after getting the Vajrapani Ruel from you), I received a text message early in the morning from my brother who is has been living in the US telling me to collect $200 that he sent me from Western Union. He said that this is his advance payment to me for a painting that he has commissioned me to make last year. My brother has not been communicating with me for a long while; but I send him a gift every year on this birthday even though he doesn’t send me anything during the 30 years that he has been living in the US. Last year, he seemed happy receiving a gift from me so that he sent me $100 and asked me to make a painting of our late father in the plaza of our town during fiesta. I haven’t even started the painting thinking that he was maybe just kidding me, but now I know that he is taking it seriously. He also said that this is only an advance payment and that there is more to come.image1
I got that text message the morning after the night that I chanted Om Vajrapani Hum using my mala and holding the Vajrapani Ruel in my left hand, following your post that it would be good to do this during this time that the Wu Wang has gone to the NE where my bedroom is. After collecting the money from Western Union and depositing my tithe to my church’s bank account, I bought some bread, snacks and coffee sachets and gave these to the security guards and receptionists in my condo building in observance of Shakyamuni Day where one’s actions are supposed to multiply 100 million times and following your post to do acts of kindness to counter the effects of the Wu Wang and Illness Star this month.
The day before Mother’s Day, my son and daughter-in-law took me to lunch and also to dinner which is very unusual because they just take me out either for lunch or for dinner. This time, after lunch, they texted me that they were taking me also to dinner which I happily accepted.image2
Today, my husband gifted me with P10,000 for Mother’s Day. It has really been raining money in my life since I received the two amulets from you and I followed your suggestions in your posts to chant and recite the sutras that you listed there.
When I chanted the chant for the Vajrapani Ruel, I did not go vegan that day because I just decided to chant that night before I went to sleep instead of doing it in the morning. I observed the morning after, that I did not sleep well and felt hot throughout the night even though my bedroom is air-conditioned. I experienced feeling restless and had LBM the morning after. I guess my body was undergoing detox because perhaps I connected to the fine, high frequency of the Vajrapani Bothisattva without going vegan. Does this mean that we should always go vegan before doing the chants?
Note: Taken out a part that is a personal inquiry.

Thank you,JP that I was able to get the amulets and for your blog where you post many valuable information. Reading your posts, I am now able to understand and learn the value of chanting, reciting the sutras, the positive influence of having amulets, the auspicious meaning of birds, Temple water and many more that I would not know if I did not know about your posts. Many years ago, I was invited by some friends to attend Tibetan Buddhist chanting and satsangs. I even went to Penang, Malaysia with them to attend a Buddhist retreat. I bought many Buddhist books hoping that I would understand Buddhist teachings. I did not learn anything new about Buddhism then so I stopped going. It is only now  that I am able to understand the prayers and rituals that I saw there, from your posts.
Again, thank you and may blessings increase and multiply, return to you a millionfold.
Feel free to write about my experiences in your post, just identify me with my initials, AS, instead of mentioning my full name for security reasons, now that money is raining in my life (LOL).
In light and love,

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.

A Simple Way to Extend One’s Good Luck!

Published Abril 21, 2016 by jptan2012

I’m really happy that birds have been visiting me lately. If you’re a regular reader of this blog you’d know that if one is visited by a bird or flocks of birds, it’s a sure sign that some good luck will be coming your way. This is not a theory because I have personally experience this several times.Bird window

The question is since some places has a lot of birds, like in the Philippines, we have Maya Birds, how then can we know if it’s a message. I don’t know the answer to this but all I can say is trust me you’ll know if the presence of the bird is a celestial message of good luck.

In fact, when the Vajrapani Ruel was first released, I was not allowed to have one. However, after some time my Guru Lama agreed that I invite one for myself. The very day I made the donation to invite the Vajrapani Ruel, I knew it is going to work for me as well because I saw 5 or 6 birds outside my window. Guess what? Two of them are not Maya Birds. I don’t know what it is but is slightly larger than the ubiquitous Maya Bird in Manila. I took it as a sign that the Vajrapani Ruel is indeed the world’s most powerful amulet.

As I mentioned birds have been visiting me lately. They would be outside my window tweeting even in the afternoon. The funny thing is I would notice them even when I’m in a meeting elsewhere. I knew then that they’re sending me signs that I’m in for some good luck.

But I want to ‘artificially’ extend this good luck. So right outside of my window I put some bird feeds and water for them. And I know they will stay longer and the effect will so extend my good luck. This would have been better if I was not thinking about the luck they bring, but this is the ‘I’m only human part’ that kick in.

Use Water to Save A Life and Earn Some Good Karma!

Published Abril 16, 2016 by jptan2012

We are at the height of El Niño and all of use here in the Philippines can actually feel the heat. In fact, this is one of the hottest seasons we ever had. Famine because of drought are already happening in the country side and it seems that it is bound to get even worst first before it’ll start to get better.

I’m sure most of you have experienced this tremendous heat and are suffering because of it. The good thing is we are able to take care of ourselves (most of us). Many of us can turn the air – conditioner on and drink lots of water.bird water

This is the season where we can earn some good merits or good karma, although hopefully this should not be our main and primary reason. Because of the heat, a lot of the birds and stray dogs and cats are dying of thirst or heat stroke. It will help a lot if we can put out some water for them.

For the birds, you can put the water on your balcony or outside your bedroom window, or on a tree trunk if you are able to do this. Note that their food might be drying up also because of the heat, so while you’re at it you might want to bring out a little food also. Bird feeds, or fruits will do.

For the stray dogs and cats, please do put a big flat bowl of water outside your house. This way, a thirsty dog or cat might wander to your place and they will be able to drink some water. Again, while you’re at it you might want to put some food also.

In doing this, you can earn some merit, but more importantly one can help save a life!
