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:
One of the most powerful mantra is the Mantra of Cundi Avalokitesvara (also called Chundi Avalokitesvara or Cundi Kuan Shi Yin or Chundi Kuan Shi Yin), who is another manifestation of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (Guan Yin). His/Her mantra is actually called a Dharani because it is quite long for a mantra.
Cundi Avalokitesvara is depicted with 18 arms or hands each carrying an implement of significance.
In the sutra –THE BUDDHA PRONOUNCES THE SUTRA OF THE GREAT CUNDI DHARANI : THE HEART OF THE MOTHER OF SEVEN KOTI BUDDHAS- Sakyamuni Buddha (Shakyamuni Buddha) extolled on the various benefits of chanting the mantra of Cundi Avalokitesvara. Some of these and more significant of these are for success, and for taking out problems and thus it will lead to peace.
For me the highlight of these benefits is the fact by chanting the mantra of Cundi Avalokitesvara 600,000 times under deep meditation, one is able to tap into the power of Bodhisattva Vajrapani or Goddess Tara or Bodhisattva Kuan Yin. In fact, the word that Buddha used is to see Vajrapani Bodhisattva or Goddess Tara or Bodhisattva Guan Yin, my Guru Lama clarifies that although this is really possible, most likely what the Buddha meant is that one is able to see and understand the awesome power of Vajrapani Bodhisattva or Goddess Tara or Guan Yin Bodhisattva.
It is extremely good when chant this mantra when one encounters hindrances to financial success or even career or personal success. My Guru Lama says chanting this mantra before chanting the mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani, while holding the Vajrapani Ruel on your receiving hand, will definitely make the Vajrapani Ruel even more powerful and effective.
Furthermore, it is said that the Mantra of Chundi Avalokitesvara is also a mantra that has been chanted or pronounced by the Buddhas of the Past, Buddha of the Present (Buddha Sakyamuni) and Buddhas of the Future (starting with Maitreya Buddha).
This great dhāraṇī of Cundī is a great brilliant mantra teaching that is spoken by all buddhas of the past, all buddhas of the future, and all buddhas of the present time. I also now speak it thusly to benefit all sentient beings, causing them to attain Anuttarā Samyaksaṃbodhi. If there are sentient beings with little merit, who lack the roots of goodness, natural ability, and the Factors of Bodhi, if they obtain hearing of this dhāraṇī method, they will quickly realize the attainment of Anuttarā Samyaksaṃbodhi. If there are people who are always able to remember, recite, and maintain this dhāraṇī, they will all obtain immeasurable roots of goodness.
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.
In the next few posts I will talk more about the Mantra of Cundi Avalokitesvara and I will write about her powerful oracle, and the ritual to summon Bodhisattva Vajrapani thru the chanting this mantra.
The Mantra of Cundi Avalokitesvara is:
NAMO SAPTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CALE CULE CUNDI SOHA.
