Get Wealth Abundance and Financial Security Through THE WEALTH GRANTING TARA!!!

Published Disyembre 3, 2012 by jptan2012

One of the posts that I’ve ever written here in this blog that has a lot of traffic is about THE GODDESS TARA. Today, allow me to introduce to you another powerful manifestation of the GODDESS TARA, which is THE WEALTH GRANTING TARA!

If you wish to know more about GODDESS TARA, do read my earlier post entitled – GODDESS TARA, THE MOTHER OF SWIFT LIBERATION.

As the name implies, WEALTH GRANTING TARA is a manifestation of GODDESS TARA that helps grants material needs. Like the root manifestation of GODDESS TARA, WEALTH GRANTING TARA is also green in color. The difference is that the WEALTH GRANTING TARA has four (4) arms and hands. Another manifestation of the WEALTH GRANTING TARA is that of an eight (8) arms and hands, however, for this posts let’s focus on the four-armed and hand manifestation.

She is usually depicted as a TARA that is seated on a lotus, with fine adornments. She is usually seen as wearing a bejeweled headdress, bejeweled necklace, bracelets, and anklets.

In her hands are a mala (which signifies that whoever chants her mantra will be blessed), an Uptula flower (which signifies her power), a holy text (which signifies that she’ll grant material and wealth blessing to those who follow Buddhism and that she grants wisdom for those who are in need of it), and her other right hand shows the wish granting mudra (which signifies her power to grant wishes and blessings).

The best way to tap into the power and blessing of WEALTH GRANTING TARA is for us to chant her mantra. For those who are yet familiar about mantras please read my post entitled – MANTRA: THE INSTRUMENT TO TAP THE POWER OF SYMBOLIC SOUND, SCRIPT, AND THOUGHT.

WEALTH GRANTING TARA is not a very popular but very powerful manifestaion of GODDESS TARA. There are very few images of the WEALTH GRANTING TARA in the market or on the net. So far, one of the best rendition is that of Lillian Too's WEALTH GRANTING TARA, which is available in WOFS or World of Feng Shui.

WEALTH GRANTING TARA’s mantra is – OM TARE TUTTARE TURE DANAM ME DADA SOHA.

Chant her mantra 108 times a day for you to continuously get her blessings, especially when you are in n need of financial assistance.

Dealing with Depression with Feng Shui, Buddhism, and Taoism

Published Hulyo 7, 2012 by jptan2012

A few days ago,  we talked about RECOGNIZING THE  SIGNS OF DEPRESSION and briefly talked about how one should deal with it. On an earlier post called SUICIDE IS NOT A SOLUTION, I also briefly discussed on how one can deal with suicidal tendencies and depression using Feng Shui, Buddhism, and Taoism.

Today, allow me to elaborate it a little on how can one use Feng Shui, Buddhism, and Taoism in dealing with depression. However, it should be noted that this is not an alternative or replacement, this is only a ‘supplement’ but if one is depressed one should always reach out to others and get professional help. That’s the most important thing one can do.

Having said that, allow me to briefly share that Feng Shui, Buddhism, and Taoism ways to dealing with depression.

FOR FENG SHUI.

Make sure that your room or house is well lit and please put about a tablespoon of rock salt or sea salt in all corners of the house or room. Make sure that when sleeping your head is not facing towards the window. Listen to positive, happy music.

FOR BUDDHISM.

Chant a full mala (108 times) of the mantra of the BUDDHA OR BODHISATTVA OF COMPASSION, KUAN YIN, as many times as you can with a minimum of three times a day. You can also do this for a person who is depressed. Buying a CD that chants the mantra repetitively also helps. To know more about it, read my previous posts about Kuan Yin – KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEARS THE CRIES OF THE WORLD; UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN; and PAYING HOMAGE TO KUAN YIN, THE BUDDHA OF COMPASSION.

Another mantra that you can recite is that mantra of the MEDICINE BUDDHA –TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA. Again you can recite this for yourself or for a loved one. Constantly playing the mantra will also help.

Wear a pendant with the image of KUAN YIN, MEDICINE BUDDHA, or SUN WUKONG.

Light some incense.

FOR TAOISM.

Take a bath in a tub with a cup of rock salt or sea salt. While in a tub you can also light some red or white candles and try to put flowers in your surrounding.

Offer some fruits and flowers to THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN SUN WUKONG, as mentioned in my previous post, SUN WUKONG exist both in Chinese Buddhism and Taoism. SUN WUKONG, is a happy god and if you’re familiar with his life story, he always uplifts those who are with him. Wearing an image of SUN WUKONG also helps a lot!

Light some incense.

But remember these are just ‘supplements’ only. The best way to deal with depression is to reach out and get professional help.
