Financial Luck Received After Receiving the Vajrapani Ruel and Descendant Luck Activated by the Traditional Sutra Amulet: Two Different Personal Testimonies of A Reader and How She Still Saw the Simple Miracle As A Miracle!

Published Marso 20, 2017 by jptan2012

One of the very first Vajrapani Ruel miracles I shared on this blog is about JS’s story. If you’ll remember, JS is a man born out of wedlock and because of this he had problem claiming his inheritance, but after getting the Vajrapani Ruel he was able to claim his share of the inheritance. You can read more about his story in the post called – The Vajrapani Ruel Stories (2): How A Man Got His Land Back After A 20 – Year – Old Legal Bottle. Would you believe that JS’s story was written more than 2 years ago!

JS’s cousin shared today’s story to us from his mother side. As you may have expected after getting his miracle, JS’s relatives naturally requested for the Vajrapani Ruel, not all of them was able to get one, but Ailyn (her real nickname) was one of the few who was able to get it.

Ailyn never had any outrageous miracle like winning lotto or getting some money miraculously, but that didn’t stop her from seeing her miracle. She has mentioned to me before about her miracle, but I have never written about it. But right now, another miracle has started to happen, and that is her husband who is staunch anti – Feng Shui person is starting to believe in Feng Shui because of the simple financial luck / wealth luck / money luck that they are getting. Although technically speaking the Vajrapani Ruel is a Buddhist amulet, consecrated and made under the energies of the Buddhist bodhisattva, Bodhisattva Vajrapani.

But what is even more amazing is that Ailyn aside from her financial luck also directly got her wish although the wish is really for somebody else.

Ailyn has two children. One son and a daughter. The son has been married for 6 years now, and he and her wife has been trying to get pregnant for 5 years now (or maybe 6 years). But descendant luck seems to be an elusive luck for them and they are unable to conceive. They both live in the US and out of desperation decided to get an artificial insemination but still using the sperm of Ailyn’s son and eggs of Ailyn’s daughter – in – law.

Ailyn although wants them to be happy was a little uncomfortable with the said process and thinks that it’s a natural thing. And so she decided to call me and her instinct told her to get a copy of the Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA), in this case she got the Avatamsaka Sutra. She is getting this to wish that her daughter – in – law got pregnant. She just told me on the phone that she did send her son and daughter – in – law the said TSA.

Anyway, allow me to post here the sms of Ailyn. Read it and let Ailyn tell you her miracles.image1

Aside from the fact that she got her wish and son’s and daughter – in – law’s wish coming to fruition, she really did see that sometimes miracles are simple and gradual. She and to some extent her husband believes that the Vajrapani Ruel is the one gradually increasing their financial luck.

A Lesson on Karma: Do Not Get An Amulet with the Intent of Harming Others!

Published Marso 9, 2017 by jptan2012

Ridiculous as it may sound, even I was surprised, that there are people who would want to get a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel simply to harm others. I don’t want to get into details because part of the conversation was done in confidence, but the realization what the amulet was for came in hindsight.

You see somebody wanted to get an amulet just because this person wants to get rid of a person. I don’t think this person would do it physically, but this person is under a twisted notion that by getting an amulet it will this person so much luck to the point that the person that he wants to get rid off will pass away!

First, the amulet will not do that. It will not have such an effect, but simply thinking about it like already ‘spiritually’ committing an act of murder, and using an amulet for that intent, even if it will not happen creates so much negative energy and bad karma for those who intended to do it.

In this case, I had the realization in hindsight; this person is so bitter and angry. This person would always want to appear nice, but he is totally disconnected with the people that surrounds him. Even the one person who is supposed to be really close with him avoids him. All these are making her really sad and depress! I’m also quite positive that the hardships he is going through is doubled because of the very negative intent of directly inflicting harm with the use of a Buddhist amulet.

Did I mention that “the amulet refuses to go to him”?

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

How to Help A Dying Person From Moving On To a Better Next Life!

Published Marso 3, 2017 by jptan2012

Today’s post has something to do with reincarnation. I decided to write about this because of a recent incident that I shall share with you in the next few days.

Anyway, all of us commute to work, school, meetings, malls, restaurant, etc. And we travel, some daily some not as often but all of us will be on the road at some point in our life.

When on the road, there are times that we will encounter an accident or see an accident. It’s degree of severity may vary but when we see a grave accident with people who are hurt and are about to die or has died, it will be very well for us to help them realized they’re dead so that they can easily enter samsara or move on to the next life again.

How do we do this?

For Buddhist who knows how to take refuge, mentally do it for the dying person or for the one who died. Take the refuge, and mentally say that the merit is given to those who are involved in the accident.

Chanting some mantras and imagining its energies becoming a purple ball of fire, then you mentally throwing to the dying or newly dead should help.

The mantras that you should recite are the following (please do this in the same order as it is written):

  1. OM AMI DEWA HRIH (7X)
  2. OM MUNI MUNI MAHA MUNI YE SOHA (7X)
  3. TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKNADZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA (7X)
  4. OM MANI PADME HUM (3X)
  5. OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM (3X)
  6. OM VAJRAPANI HUM (3X)
  7. TADYATHA OM GATE GATE PARAGATE PARASAMGATE BODHI SOHA (7X)

While chanting the mantras slowly imagine that the mantras are becoming a ball of purple fire or energy. After you’ve finished chanting imagine it being thrown to the dying person or to those who just died. This will help their consciousness recognized that they just died or are dying.

In Buddhism also chanting loudly the mantras of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas will help the person attain a better next life.

If you have the Vajrapani Ruel(1) or Surangama Mantra Amulet(1), you can also put it on their chest or forehead, if the relatives or the authorities allowed you to do it, or at the very least pass it over them three times.

If you have the Vajrapani Ruel(2) and can’t remember all the mantras to chant, and does not feel comfortable approaching the dying person, hold it on your receiving hand (if you are right handed your receiving hand is your left hand and vice versa), and then chant OM VAJRAPANI HUM, while chanting imagine the energy coming from the Vajrapani Ruel(3) then slowly let it flow through your arms to your chest to move to your giving hand (which is your other hand) and then raise your giving hand, much like praying over somebody, then imagine the energy going to the dying person or newly dead one and let it’s energy clean it’s consciousness (or soul).

Wouldn’t it by doing this we are assuming that the person is dying (if not yet dead)? Yes it would, but the good thing doing this will cleanse its consciousness but it is also a healing act. They need the burst of energy and it might jolt them back to life.

I’m quite sure that a lot of you will be worried that by doing this the consciousness of the person might go after you, and you might attract the negative chi that cause the accident. By simply chanting the mantras, even if it is for them, you are already protecting yourself. And remember, there is no bad thing that will come out from a good thing.

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

Feng Shui and Buddhist Love Spells and Love Rituals!

Published Pebrero 14, 2017 by jptan2012

I don’t know whether you have notice this but I don’t really write a lot about Feng Shui love rituals or Feng Shui love spells for that matter. The longest article I have written about the topic was written several years back, and quite surprisingly it is constantly one of the most read article of this blog.

However, since a lot of you have been sending me emails or messages asking questions about how to attract love or on how to reignite the flame of love, this is especially true for those who are already married.

Today, allow me to share with you some of the said rituals that have worked for some readers and acquaintances or friends. Thought of writing these now because it is the month of love and February 14 is Valentine’s Day!

I will avoid writing about those things that I have written in the past, but will instead focus on those that I have never talked about on this blog before.

FENG SHUI CANDLE LOVE RITUAL TO BRING LOVE INTO YOUR LIFE OR BRING BACK A LOST LOVE:

You will need four white votive candles, one pink votive candle, and one red votive candle. Preferably they should all be of the same size.

Do this ritual in a private place where you can have a small pool or a tub or Jacuzzi. If the tub or Jacuzzi is in the same room as the toilet, make sure to do a thorough physical and auric cleaning first by scrubbing the whole bath and toilet with salt water.

Place all the white votive candle on the side of the pool or a tub or Jacuzzi. Follow the compass directions East, West, North, and South. Light them starting from the East, followed by South, then West, then North. Position yourself on the center of the tub or small pool or Jacuzzi then light or as a trusted friend to light the pink and red candle first. Have a small container to hold them so that the wax doesn’t drip on your palms. Then visualize that the light from the pink candle (which should be on your left hand) goes clockwise mixing with the light from the red candle (which should be on your right hand). The light covers you going a clockwise direction. Then imagine that the light from the four white candles becomes a protective shield for you. Do this visualization for about 5 to 10 minutes for 7 days. Making sure that the fire from the candles melts the wax completely.

After each visualization you can put the red and pink candle aside still lighted.

I first learn of this ritual several years ago, when I was still trying to learn Feng Shui. A colleague wanted to do a love ritual that will help her get the love and a partner in life. She did this, and two months after she met a guy who will later on become her husband. She believes that it was this ritual that brought her husband in her life. They have now married for 17 years and have two daughters.

According to my Feng Shui teacher the same ritual can bring back a lost love.

INVOKING THE HELP OF BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN TO BRING BACK A LOST LOVE. A BUDDHIST LOVE RITUAL.kuan yin 5

This is perhaps one of the most powerful Buddhist love ritual that I have recommended. Several of my readers and friends have tried this and all attest to its power to bring back a lost love. However, this ritual only works if the lost love is only due to minor karmic predicament, and not ancestral problem or not a very strong flaw in the Bazi chart or Paht Chee chart of the couple. I noticed that this is mostly for married couples.

The ritual is quite simple. All you have to do is write your name and birthday and that of your husband or wife or partner in a small piece of plain white or plain yellow paper. Make sure that you use red ink.

Go to a temple or if you have an image of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon). Light three incense sticks and say: NAMO KUAN SHI YIN PUSA (3X), MAY I AND –name of your partner- RECEIVE THE BLESSING OF YOUR COMPASSION SO THAT OUR RELATIONSHIP WILL STRAIGTHEN OUT.

Then chant 108x (one full male) of OM MANI PADME HUM.

Then place the piece of paper at the foot of the image of Bodhisattva Guan Yin. Do this either in the temple or on your own altar. Doing it in the temple and placing the piece of paper at the foot of the image of Bodhisattva Guan Shi Yin in the temple is better and it will work faster, however, you have to make sure that the temple allows it.

I have recommended this several times to my readers, I would say there are about 19 people/couple who have tried it. Only one claims that it didn’t work for her, and I lost contact with another one.

THE 100 DAYS FENG SHUI LOVE RITUAL TO BRING LOVE INTO YOUR LIFE.

If you are single and wants to be in a relationship, you should get yourself a locket and on a small piece of plain yellow or plain white write your name with a red ink and your simple wish. Place it inside the locket and everyday of 100 days; place a fresh petal inside the locket. The petal should be pink or red in color. Place the petal in the morning before 7AM, and take it out the following morning replacing it with a fresh petal. Do it for 100 days. And you soon find love. I have several readers, who did this, and what is amazing about this is that not all of them found love of a partner; sometimes they just learned to love themselves.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

I’ve shared before about this Chinese woman who with the use of Surangama Mantra Amulet and some Feng Shui was able to find a husband for her daughter. The Surangama Mantra Amulet when worn is said to attract and activate your connection with the heavenly beings, so much so that they ‘hover’ you. This does not only become a protective amulet but it gives you charisma and charm also because it lightens your aura. My Guru Lama has a treasure trove of stories that I will share in the future posts about people who were able to find love or bring back a lost love when they started wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet.

I would like to clarify though that the Surangama Mantra Amulet should not be considered as a love amulet, although it has that kind of effect.

TAP INTO THE POWER OF A TRADITIONAL SUTRA AMULET TO GET RID OF THE HINDRANCES THAT PREVENTS US FROM RECEIVING THE LOVE WE HAVE.

Recently, I wrote about the story of Grace who got separated with her husband, and along with receiving some financial blessing, also reunited with her husband because of the Traditional Sutra Amulet. There are different Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA) and all has the power to shower us the blessing of acquiring our wishes be it financial or love or relationship luck. The one used by Grace was THE DIAMOND SUTRA, but for love luck that is experiencing some road blocks or hindrances, THE AVATAMSAKA SUTRA is the best, this works specially well for those two people who are in love but are victims of circumstances. For examples, parents are not in favor, third party, poverty, etc.

All you have to do is put your name and that of your partners name on piece of plain white or plain yellow paper. Use red ink. Then just place it inside the TSA. But as you can see, Grace need not do this. She just had it and it worked for her.

There are a lot of other ways to attract love or mend a lost love. In fact, my Guru Lama performs a special ritual for selected people to get two people together. But this ritual is only for couples that are definitely for each other but are broken apart by different circumstances. Remember the rituals mentioned above will only work if you are also meant for each other. It is not witchcraft to make people fall in love with you, but rather it simply eradicates the hindrances.

Do We Really Need Amulets? And Why Are REAL Amulets so Pricey?

Published Enero 31, 2017 by jptan2012

I’m a strong advocate of real amulets and a firm believer of one. In fact, a lot of times amulets has become my ‘security blanket’, something that I really need to be able to help me go through my day or week. In fact, last 2016 I greatly relied on amulets to protect myself from bad the effects of the bad stars.

But the question is whether do we really need amulets and why are real amulets so pricey?

Allow me to answer the first question first. Do we really need amulets?

To answer that question allows me to share you the story of somebody who may be familiar already to my readers. BM is a reader who became a friend. She is successful and regardless of what happens she seems always at peace. She may get frazzled a little but it doesn’t really last long. I have featured BM on this blog several times and it would be nice if you read some of the articles that I have written about her.

BM is successful, rich, businesswoman and sure enough she has the Vajrapani Ruel(1), the Surangama Mantra Amulet(1), the Illness Suppression Amulet(1), the Traditional Sutra Amulets(1) and a whole lot more. But truth be told, if you were to ask me what are the causes of her success, I wouldn’t put the use of amulets and Feng Shui as top.

So what do I think are the causes of her success?

First, her spirituality. I will not describe her as religious. At least, not in the sense of the word on how we describe it. She goes to church everyday, she hear mass everyday, she prays the rosary and do novenas everyday. In fact, she prays the rosary more than once everyday. And yes to some extent she can be described as religious, but she is really more than that. She is spiritual. Religion for her goes much more deeper that the essence of the word. And you know what is really fascinating about her? She never or seldom prays for herself. Her prayers are always for other people. With or without problems she goes to church and says her prayers, maybe even more so when everything is good. This is I think is the first ingredient of her success.

Second, she has a good heart and is very compassionate. She is compassionate; many times she has shared with me whether directly or indirectly how it is to be truly compassionate. And she really has a good heart. I know she gives to charity only because there are times that it is unavoidable for her to share it with me, which is done in the process of sharing with me some lessons. A truly compassionate person will always be blessed.

Third, she works really hard. She is intelligent, but more than that she works really hard. When I went to see her, one of her staff told me that her boss, BM, is really hardworking. In fact, she rarely goes home before sunset.

I think those are the main ingredients of her success. But more than her success she has a good family life also and I can see her husband is still ‘madly’ in love with her. I haven’t really had a long interaction with her children, but they seem to be respectful children. Mind you, they should already be in their rebellious stage.

The amulets for her are simply just an added protection or enhancer, and it is not the main ingredient of her good life. In a way, the amulets are simply an added sugar.

Note: Remember that Feng Shui consists of Heaven’s Luck, Man’s Luck and Earth’s Luck!

Allow me to share something else with you. The Buddhist monks or nuns rarely carry with them any amulets, aside from the powerful protective symbol Kalachakra. While I know that the Dalai Lama, and the Karmapa, while escaping the Chinese government did carry an amulet they seldom carry one all the time. The Dalai Lama carried an unknown amulet, and the Karmapa is said to have carried a Vajrapani Ruel(2) with him. But other than that, Buddhist monks and nuns don’t carry amulets with them, or if they do it is limited to one piece only. But, of course, most of them do meditations and chanting of mantras and reciting of sutras and do various rituals more than half of their day, everyday!

So to answer the question whether does we really need amulets, my response would be NO. It helps. It helps a lot. For some people and in some circumstances it may be essential, but if we get to the bottom of it, if we have a strong relationship with the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, or Taoist Gods, or for Christians to your Lord, or for Islam’s to Allah then my answer is no. There is no denying that amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel(3) has helped a lot of people, but there are people who have survive without it. At the end of the day, have a strong faith, be truly compassionate, and work hard both for your career and for your relationships, and you’ll find things will be going smoothly.

Now, then the second question is why are real amulets really pricey?

First, take note of the keyword real. Real powerful amulets are seldom massed produce. Sure they can make more than 1,000 pieces per batch, it is seldom made out of a machine. They are always made by hand. A real amulet is made several days and will be mostly likely involves being made inside a temple, in front of Buddha or a Bodhisattva and should include some relics has part of the ingredient (like the Vajrapani Ruel4) or at the very least being consecrated in front of a relic. It is definitely made by a trained Buddhist Monk and cannot be made by ordinary practitioner. Sometimes, it will include some rituals outside the temple, but will definitely include a process being done inside the temple.

The Jatukam involves some rituals by the sea and mountains. And has a relic from the temple being included in the process. They make several thousand pieces by the batch and sometime take awhile before they can make the next batch. The Vajrapani Ruel(5) involves a relic of a high lama, and can never be made without it, so the last time it was made was a little more than half – a – century ago. This batch that we have now has about a little more than 1,000 pieces but it is considered limited because we don’t know when it is going to be made again. And it can only be made in certain places in Tibet.

The Illness Suppression Amulet(2), and the others are not as difficult to make, but still they are made or consecrated only by a lama that is recognized to have the capabilities of invoking the energies of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas to make the amulet holy and become an extension of the Buddha or Bodhisattva whose essence is being invoked.

Furthermore, while making it is customary to offer a fruits, vegetables, flowers, incense, and oil lamps. So when acquiring an amulet, this is what you pay for. But that’s not what makes it pricey.

It is also customary to give a ‘donation’ to the monk who made it. But this is a misnomer because in truth the money doesn’t go to the one who made the amulet but rather it goes to the temple, for the building of additional temples or halls, for images of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or for feeding the monks.

In the case, of the Vajrapani Ruel(6), Illness Suppression Amulet(3), the Avatamsaka Amulets(1) the Traditional Sutra Amulets(2) and other amulets, the money goes to the offerings of fruits, incense, vegetables, flowers, oil lamps, etc. But more than that it goes to acquiring of the image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva that goes to a hall in a temple that is being built in India (for the Vajrapani Ruel(7) a big chunk of the money goes back to Tibet in helping the people there who are oppressed by the Chinese government) and it becomes a perpetual offering of the person who acquired the amulet.

These are the things that make a real amulet quite pricey.

But again strictly speaking the amulets are not for sale. To understand this better please read my post called: THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.
