Chant – A – Mantra (6): Take Away Your Hindrance to Success, Wealth and Peace By Chanting the Mantra of Cundi Avalokitesvara!

Published Oktubre 21, 2016 by jptan2012

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.

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.

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.

Chant – A – Mantra (3f): Daily Mantras to Chant – Protective Mantras!

Published Hulyo 19, 2016 by jptan2012

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.CUNDI AVALOKITESVARA
  3. 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’.NAMGYALMA
  4. 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.WHITE UMBRELLA GODDESS
  5. 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. Chanting the mantra will also help protect you from esoteric harm.Skanda-Weituo 3b

A Reader Experienced A Goddess Green Tara and Cundi Avalokitesvara Miracle!

Published Nobyembre 6, 2015 by jptan2012

Today, allow me to share with you a story shared with me by a reader, I’m posting it here verbatim.

I have experience Green Tara’s effect within me like keep me calm from my fears and protect me, but I never thought Green Tara will manifest.

This past July 2015, I worked at a local public school and my goal was to commit for 1 year. I ended up working 1 year and 8 months. I work with at-risk children and this means they live in a neighborhood with great financial help from tax-money related programs and housing assistants. These students I work with are grade 2-5 with family background that does not make a perfect family.

The summer 2014, I began to chant more frequently and create time to chant, due to a aggressive curse. I added more mantras as I learned from a contact through a website.

I found your blog in December 2014 and I saved it on my tab to visit twice a week and sometimes everyday. I learn to know when to chant for situations. One day in July, I felt something suspicious and did not want to deal with my supervisor’s way of using his authority power and sending negative energy to me.  I work with at-risk kids and they are very expressive, if they found out an adult doesn’t believe in God, then they will tell the adult “you’re going to hell.” The kids will create “problems” along with my supervisor and then I get written up for not able to control the students or mishandling the students.

So back to July, I chanted the 4 mantras the morning before I go to work (usually I chanted 5-8) Around lunch time (before lunch) my left leg felt different and I felt like chanting plus a little wind blew on my hair in a classroom with sealed windows, no way of opening. I felt something suspicious in the classroom that I was monitoring and few kids went outside the classroom to cause chaos. I chanted Green Tara & Cundi to make sure I feel safe because I overheard my supervisor did plan something on me if I were to give any answer and no answer at all.

He came in the classroom, asked me 2 questions and I answered appropriately. Then he took 2-3 few steps where the light hit his feet. I saw a shadowy figure of Zhunti/Cundi because of the arms and I saw Green Tara with the sword.  I don’t know if it was just Cundi because I saw a fainted gold color. I felt there was a wall of barrier preventing my supervisor to send dark energy to me, then about 20 seconds later he walked outside the classroom.

 When the shadowy figure came, the lights in the classroom got brighter. 

There was 2 students in the classroom that saw it and 1 student in the hallway that saw the figure. The student in the hallway say “wow a green face.” 

I believe all of us can experience some miracle as long as we open our hearts to it. And this is what exactly happened to AT.

Goddess Tara is also known as Green Tara because of her green color.

A Hermit and A Monk: A Lesson on Reciting Your Mantra

Published Marso 20, 2012 by jptan2012

Since I started writing about Mantras, I’ve received countless emails and sometimes phone calls asking me about the right intonation of a mantra. I know for people who have just been recently introduced to the power of Mantras, it may be a little daunting because some of the Mantras can be mouthful like the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA – or the Prajnaparamita Mantra – TADYATHA OM GATE GATE PARAGATE PARASAMGATE BODHI SOHA. The truth there are other mantras, such as the Cundi Avalokitesvara Mantra – NAMO SAKTANAM SAMYAKSAM BUDDHA KOTINAM TADYATHA OM CALE CULE CUNDI SOHA (I’ll write about Cundi Avalokitesvara soon), that are way longer than the mantras that I’ve talked about on this blog.

I realize that this might be causing a little worry to some of you thinking that your wish might not happen because you are not pronouncing it properly. Also, because you might be agonizing too much on the proper pronunciation that you tend to forget to concentrate on the intent why you’re saying the mantra.

‘A Hermit and A Monk’ is a story that was shared by Lama Zopa Rinpoche, one of the most revered monks of high status.

Lama Zopa Rincpoche is considered as the one strongly propagates Buddhism to people who otherwise wouldn’t have heard of Buddhism. His work with Lillian Too also helped bridge the gap between Buddhism and Feng Shui, which was largely considered to be a Taoist practice. He is also task by the Dalai Lama to lead the Maitreya Project. A very ambitious project that hopes to build the largest Maitreya Buddha – the Future Buddha, in the world.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche first shared this story with the members of the ‘Foundation for the Preservation of Mahayana Tradition’, it was since then shared with other groups like the Amitabha Buddhist Center (a sub-center of FPMT), and he also shared this with Lillian Too.

A HERMIT AND A MONK…

A monk visited a hermit, who lived alone on an island doing retreat. The hermit had given himself three years to complete chanting ten million of the powerful six-syllable mantra of the Compassionate Buddha. The hermit had been told that attaining this level of practice would awaken his yogic powers. The mantra was “OM MANI PADME HUM”.

The monk listened as the hermit did his mantra and, with the best intention in the world, leaned over to him and whispered:

“I think you have got the pronunciation wrong. This mantra should be chanted this way…” and he proceeded to demonstrate. The hermit listened attentively and then watched as the monk walked back to his boat to leave the island.

Ten minutes later when the boat was halfway across the river the monk heard his name being called, and looking around, he spied the hermit and heard him call:

“Listen to this, have I got it right now?” and the hermit proceeded to chant the same mantra but with the monk’s intonation. Astounded, the monk turned around and saw the hermit walking on the water next to his boat. In that instant he realized that the hermit’s faith and sincerity had given his mantra recitation far more power than he had realized.

As you will see, the story state that what counts more is the faith and sincerity in reciting the mantra. This doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t strive hard to do our best to recite them properly, but let’s not agonize about it. If you have faith and sincerity then it’s simply impossible for it not to work!
