Any Feng Shui enthusiasts and Feng Shui students would have known by now that the month of November (starting on November 7, 2016 – December 6, 2016) a lot of us will have to be very careful and be ready for double negative energies brought about by the combination of the Annual Flying Stars and Monthly Flying Stars.
First, the most dreadful star (#5 Flying Star / Wu Wang / Five Yellow Star / 5 – Yellow Star) is doubled in the Northeast this month, which means people born under the year of the Ox and Tiger, Middle Sons (regardless of age, regardless whether they are married or single and whether they still live with their parents or not), and people staying in the Northeast (bedroom, office or even if your house is in the Northeast of the village or subdivision) and people whose house or office door faces the Northeast are all affected by the Double Wu Wang. This is the most dreadful star in the Flying Star formula, and all Feng Shui experts or Feng Shui consultants caution us about this, and having it doubles this year in the Northeast brings tremendous stress to those who have to deal with it. Those who have to deal with it are the people I mentioned above.
But at the same time, the #2 Flying Star, which is known as the Illness Star, a star that causes not only grave illness but also serious accidents that may lead to long term illness or death is also doubled this month. We are all susceptible to this, but people who are affected by the Wu Wang, as mentioned above, are doubly affected. As a precaution, it is highly advisable for you to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet if you have it.
For those who are affected by the Double Wu Wang in the Northeast can wear the Vajrapani Ruel and a gold 5 – Element Pagoda (Five Element Pagoda) pendant, and a gold Kalachakra pendant. Carrying or surrounding yourself with Traditional Sutra Amulets like THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA or THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA or THE DIAMOND SUTRA will also greatly help and offer much protection.
In my earlier post about the same topic, I also said that this is the time for one to rely and have faith on prayers. For Catholics you can do your novenas or pray your rosary. For Christians and Muslims you can pray to your God and have faith in Him. For Taoist, you can ask special protection Fu from your Taoist priest. For Buddhist and those who would be willing to practice how Buddhist protect themselves now can do the following suggestions found below.
Go to the temple and light incense everyday.
Go to the temple and bow to the images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas everyday.
Donate to the poor or who are in need with utmost sincerity.
Chant the following mantras (minimum) 108x a day everyday:
Mantra of Amitabha Buddha: OM AMI DEWA HRIH
Mantra of Medicine Buddha: TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA
Mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion Guan Yin: OM MANI PADME HUM
Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani: OM VAJRAPANI HUM
Mantra of Bodhisattva Cundi Avalokitesvara (Chundi Avalokitesvara): NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CALE CULE CUNDI SOHA
Mantra of the Protective Deity Kalachakra: OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT
You can also Recite the following Sutras as often as you can:
Today, allow me to continue talking about the daily mantras that I chant, which you can also adopt for yourself. I know there are a lot, and if you are newbie in chanting mantras you can start with a few first and gradually work your way up to chanting more mantras.
All mantras are protective, but like the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, some mantras have a special characterization. Some of the well-known protective mantras are the Mantra of Buddha Amitabha, Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani and the Mantra of Bodhisattva Sangharama. But of course, Vajrapani Bodhisattva and Sangharama Bodhisattva are also known for business, money, career, financial and wealth growth, especially Vajrapani Bodhisattva. The many people who have the Vajrapani Ruel or the readers of this blog would know that by now.
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you would know already that I always take the stance that one should protect oneself first before enhancing one’s luck. But with mantras, you automatically do both. That’s the beauty of it.
Now, allow me to share with you other protective mantras that I chant everyday!
These mantras are the following:
OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT (Mantra of Tantric Deity Kalachakra) – the Kalachakra symbol is one of the most powerful protective symbols in the Buddhist tradition. It actually consists of the 10 – syllable symbolic script compressed together. However, when chanting it’s mantra, you OH AH HUM, so that one cleanse oneself first of negative karma before invoking the protection from the powerful Tantric Deity Kalachakra. Simply wearing a Kalachakra will certainly protect you from both physical and esoteric harm. But chanting the mantra daily will also imbibe you with the same amount of protection, and having both will certainly double or event triple it’s protective effect. Aside from that chanting or wearing its symbol will also protect you from negative energies that may prevent you from achieving your utmost financial or wealth potential.
This is a Kalachakra Pendant designed by Lillian Too. She has included some mandala sands inside the pendant to make it more potent. I personally love this pendant and has one that is made of white gold. The Kalachakra Symbol is a powerful protection symbol. It is actually ten syllable mantra compressed into one symbol. The mantra is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, it is usually chanted with OM AH HUM thus making the complete mantra as OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. It is because off this that for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, I decided to put the symbolic script OM AH HUM on top of Kalachakra Symbol.
NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CHALE CHULE CHUNDI SOHA (Mantra of Bodhisattva Cundi Avalokitesvara / Bodhisattva Chundi Avalokitesvara) – Cundi Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva (also spelled as Chundi Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva) is another manifestation of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin or Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara. Cundi Avalokitesvara is sometime called Cundi Kuan Yin (Cundi Guan Yin). Bodhisattva Chundi Avalokitesvara is usually depicted with 18 arms with various implements. Chanting the mantra of Bodhisattva Cundi Avalokitesvara will provide you with a protection from business and political problems. It will be great that this mantra be chanted to help protect you from office politics and also hostile business atmosphere. The mantra is also spelled NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CALE CULE CUNDI SOHA.
OM BHRUM SOHA OM AMARITA AYUR DADAY SOHA (Mantra of Buddha Namgyalma) – Namgyalma Buddha is another Buddha that is considered as a very powerful protector. Chanting the mantra daily will ensure that you are always free from danger. The mantra is sometimes spelled as OM BHRUM SOHA OM AMARITA AYUR DADE SOHA or OM BHRUM SOHA OM AMARITA AYUR DADI SOHA. Daday/Dade/Dadi is pronounced as ‘the – die’.
TADYATHA OM ANALÈ ANALÈ KHASAMÈ KHASAMÈ BHAYRÈ BHAYRÈ SAUMA SAUMÈ SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTÎTÈ SOHA TADYATHA OM USHINISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NÌ SOHA (Mantra of the White Umbrella Goddess – Ushinisha Sitataputra) – Chanting this mantra will provide one with long life and good health. It prevents accidents and help prevents you from falling ill. It does protect one from evil or negative energies.
NAMO WEI TUO PU SA (Mantra of Bodhisattva Wei Tuo) – Wei Tuo Bodhisattva is a Bodhisattva known for protective the dharma and the sutras. If you are a student of dharma, chanting the mantra of Wei Tuo Bodhisattva will block the negative forces that might want to prevent you from being a serious dharma student.
