Receive Wonderful Blessings of Wealth, Success, Peace and Protection from Two of the Most Powerful Buddhist Amulets (Part 1): A Focus on a First Class Buddhist Relic Called THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS

Published Oktubre 2, 2013 by jptan2012

This is going to be one of my longest post, because this is something that I’ve wanted to write about for the longest time, but only recently got the permission to do so.

I’ve known about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET for quite some time now and I’ve always wanted to write about them, however, THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET both requires a special permission for one to be able to write about them.

This is a sample of Stupa where one can put a copy of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS.

This is a sample of Stupa where one can put a copy of the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS.

In one of my trips to Singapore last year, I met with my guru Lama, and when I informed him about my blog and my desire to write about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, he said that I can only write about them once he has given me the permission and once we have ensured that writing it will benefit my readers as well and that I will write for a bigger purpose. In short, I cannot write about them only because I believe in THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET and that I want to write about it. He also added that I need to pass several ‘test’ before I can write about them. I cannot go into details as to what are those tests are but it involves an oracle to be done by my guru Lama.

As you can discern, I was already given the permission to write about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, this is because I did pass the test, and the oracle indicated that I could start writing about them because this has a higher purpose. I’ll write about the higher purpose in the third part of this series.

I will first write about the THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRA. It is not just one of the most powerful mantra in the world, but more than that it is also considered as relic, and it is one of the most powerful relics in Buddhism.

THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS is perhaps one of the most powerful Buddhist relics. It is considered as a first class relic and is considered by high lamas, like Lama Zopa Rinpoche, to be one of the most important mantra and sacred relics in the world.

THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS is compose of four (4 ) different relic mantras, and these are the following:

  • STAINLESS PINNACLE DIETY
  • SECRET RELIC
  • ZUNG OF THE EXALTED COMPLETELY PURE STAINLESS LIGHT
  • 100,000 ORNAMENTS OF ENLIGHTENMENT

To be completely honest, it took me years of on and off lessons before I understood the importance of the THE FOUR DHARMKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, but even then I don’t think I understand it completely.

However, what I’m sure of is having this relic is a great wonderful blessing of incomparable magnitude.

For those who are currently facing some difficulties in their life, THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS is sure to help make things easier. It’s also good to create good karma.

I first heard about the wonderful power of THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS several years back, I was already a student of Feng Shui then but not yet a serious student of Buddhism. This happened in Malaysia. I was looking for a Prayer Wheel that used a microfilm; this was when Prayer Wheels are still mostly made of ordinary paper. When I wasn’t able to get what I was looking for, the seller told me that more than Prayer Wheel; I should get myself a FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and use it as an amulet. That was the first time I heard about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, and the seller told me about it.

According to the seller, he used to be poor, as in poor as one can be, his mother and himself lives on the street and they were times when they are only able to eat once – a – day and only if somebody will give them their scraps.

One of the places that they frequent is a Buddhist temple, and there a monk, would always give them food whenever he is around. In exchange, his mom would always ask him to help out in the temple. And although the monk doesn’t have much either because of his vow of poverty, and would only eat what was donated to him, he would always make sure that he has something for the seller and his mom.

One time, the monk gave him a 3 pieces of bread (mantou – a siopao dough without the meat). He only ate one, and when asked why, he explained that he would give 2 pieces to his mom. This earned him some praise from the monk. He then left to look for his mom to give the bread. On his way to look for his mom, who is doing some menial jobs in nearby market in exchange for a small amount of money, he came across a boy who looks really hungry. According to the seller he took pity, and decided to give a piece to the boy, although he all said that he had second thoughts because a piece of bread, for somebody who is always looking for food like them is a very big thing. Nevertheless, he said since he knows how it is to be really hungry; he decided to give it to the boy. Little did he know that the monk followed him to give him some fruits. The monk saw what he did and asked told him to bring he should ask his mom to go with him to the temple the next day.

When the seller and his mom arrived at the temple the following day, a monk told his mom about the generous act of the seller, who was a young boy then. The monk told his mom that he is giving both of them a powerful mantra written on yellow paper that they must wear on their body at all times. The said paper was already rolled and put in a leather pouch.

According to the seller, as soon as they started wearing the mantra on their body things started to change. Things started to get better. His mom found a regular job, and he got to go to school with the help of a businessman who owns the company where his mother works as a janitress.

As proof, the seller showed me the mantra given to them by the monk; it is now enclosed in a gold amulet holder, which he wears as a pendant. According to the seller, he has since married and was gifted with 11 children, who all became professionals! He humbly shared that the poor homeless boy now has 2 houses in the US, a house in Singapore, Hong Kong, and Germany! Of course, not to mention his 4 houses in Malaysia. He simply works because he doesn’t want to grow senile and his store also becomes a venue for him to share Buddhist amulets to people who can’t afford them.

It was only later that he found out that the mantra given to him by the monk is a blessed copy of THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS.

I like his story but didn’t put so much thought about the THE FOUR DHARMKAYA RELIC MANTRAS, until my guru Lama gave one copy to me and told me about it’s marvelous benefits.

It has the power to save us from harm and bless us if we strive to have a good heart.

It also has the power to bring us to enlightenment, something that every Buddhists aspire for.

It has the power to give us good rebirth.

It has the power to grant us enough financial wealth luck.

If you don’t know whether a place your going to has good or bad Feng Shui or Chi, wearing a copy of THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS on your body has the ability to protect you from all the negative chi or bad effects of the bad Feng Shui of a place.

Most Buddhist scriptures states that THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS should be put inside a stupa for it to be effective, and most of the teaching of Lama Zopa Rinpoche indicates that it should be put inside a stupa. However, the Dalai Lama said that although a stupa is preferred, it is not a requisite for THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS to be effective. A stupa is not the most practical thing to have by most people. It’s quite difficult to acquire one. And as we can see with the story of the seller, THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS was effective even if it was just place inside a leather pouch. My own copy of the THE FOUR DHARMKAYA RELIC MANTRAS was initially just placed inside a red cloth; I later transferred it to a metal amulet holder.

Allow me to post here what Lama Zopa Rinpoche has to say about THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS. Please note that this was originally intended for other monks or Lamas so you have to make some adjustments in its interpretation to make it more applicable to a layperson like us.

The Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras and Their Benefits

by Lama Zopa Rinpoche

The four dharmakaya relic mantras (Stainless Pinnacle Deity, Secret Relic, Zung of the Exalted Completely Pure Stainless Light, and 100,000 Ornaments of Enlightenment) are a sacred relic. They are the highest relics of Buddha, relics of the dharmakaya. Other relics, the ones that we normally see, such as relics of the robes or parts of Buddha’s holy body, are secondary relics. These four mantras are the highest relic. After I learned about the unbelievable benefits of each of these mantras, I had them written down and we printed many. These are normally what we should put inside stupas, statues, and so on. These very special mantras give unbelievable power. If you have put these mantras inside a statue, the devas will come to worship that holy object three times a day.

By putting these mantras inside a stupa, even a bell that is offered to the stupa brings unimaginable benefit. For example, the negative karma of all sentient beings who hear the sound of that bell is purified. They are liberated from the lower realms. Their negative karma is purified and they receive a good rebirth. In that way, there is unbelievable benefit. It makes it so easy for sentient beings to purify negative karma and reach enlightenment.

Also, if you circumambulate a stupa that has these mantras inside even one time, it purifies the negative karma that causes you to be reborn in all the eight hot hells. The negative karma that causes you to be born in all the eight hot hells – from the lightest down to the heaviest, most unbearable suffering hell realm – is completely purified by going around a stupa with these mantras inside just once.

The Very Essence of the Extensive Benefits of the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras

The benefits of circumambulating and so forth are extensively explained, including the benefits from the tantric side, in the sutra called Arya Compassionate Eye Looking One and in the sutra called Compassionate White Lotus, and so forth.

Stainless Pinnacle Deity Mantra (Tsugtor Drime)
As explained by the Buddha in the Kangyur, there are skies of benefits for making even just one prostration, circumambulation, or offering to a holy object containing the mantra of the Stainless Pinnacle Deity (Tsugtor Drime):

It purifies completely the karmic obstacles of the five uninterrupted negative karmas (killing one’s father or mother, killing an arhat, causing blood to flow from a buddha, and causing a schism in the Sangha).

One will be completely liberated from the hell, hungry ghost, and animal realms and from the evil-gone realm of the yama world.

One will have a long life.

Like a snake changing its skin, when leaving the body, one will have the fortune to go to the blissful realm (i.e., a pure land).

One will never be stained by the smell of the womb.

All one’s wishes will be completely and exactly fulfilled.

If you put this mantra inside a stupa, you will never be reborn in the lower realms and will have a pure life until you achieve enlightenment. You will have good rebirths up until enlightenment is achieved.

This is most amazing. We have so many human problems that we can’t bear, so how could we bear the sufferings of the lower realms, such as being born as an insect, much less being born a hell being, animal, or preta? When human beings have problems, they can communicate. They can try many ways to resolve the problems. But animals and pretas cannot do this, and their suffering is so much greater. They have unbelievable problems, so there is no question about the hell beings whose suffering is unimaginably heavier.

So it is unbelievably precious that we can be freed forever from these sufferings, just by putting the Stainless Pinnacle Deity’s mantra inside stupas (100,000 copies of this mantra should be put into stupas). From now on, we will have pure lives and higher rebirths up until enlightenment is achieved.

So there are incredible benefits from building stupas and putting these Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras inside. It is so easy to purify all the heavy negative karmas from beginningless rebirth. Anyone who has the opportunity to put this mantra inside a stupa is therefore the most fortunate being in the world. They create the cause for long life, as well as to be reborn in a pure land. Of course, this brings a lot of merit, but that didn’t happen without cause and effect and conditions, meaning we created a lot of good karma in the past.

Secret Relic Mantra (Sangwa Rigsel)
Also, as explained by the Buddha in the Kangyur, if you have this mantra inside a holy object, then all the buddhas will abide in that holy object. Therefore, there are skies of benefits for making even just one prostration, circumambulation, or offering to a holy object containing the Secret Relic mantra (Sangwa Rigsel):

One purifies the negative karma of the ten non-virtuous actions and so forth, and will be completely liberated from the eight hot hells, including the unbearable hell (Avici). One also purifies the five uninterrupted negative karmas

One will never turn back from peerless enlightenment. (That is, one will never go down; one’s life will always be directed toward enlightenment. This is irreversible; one will never go in the opposite direction.)

One will always attain higher rebirth.

By printing the Secret Relic Mantra, if you are given the blessing to print it, just once, you collect the same amount of merit as making offerings to 100,000 x 10 million x 100 billion buddhas. This was told to Vajrapani.

Having made offerings to as many buddhas as there are in ninety-nine sesame seed pods – that is how much merit you create and you are always guided by that many buddhas.

This is just a drop from the unimaginable benefits of this mantra.

Zung of the Completely Pure Stainless Light (Özer Drime)
There are many Zung of the Exalted Completely Pure Stainless Light mantras, and they are all contained within the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras. These mantras have unbelievable, mindblowing skies of benefit. As explained by the Buddha in the Kangyur, there are skies of benefit in making even just one prostration, circumambulation, or offering to a holy object containing the Zung of the Completely Pure Stainless Light (Özer Drime):

If one offers even a bell to a stupa containing this mantra, all the sentient beings in that area, animals or humans, by hearing the sound of that bell will be completely purified of the five uninterrupted negative karmas.

Normally, committing the five uninterrupted negative karmas causes one to be reborn in the lowest hot hell, which is extremely heavy suffering, but having this mantra inside a stupa purifies it all. This shows how unbelievably powerful this mantra is. Since even hearing the sound of a bell offered to such a stupa has incredible power to purify, there is no question that any insect or other being who sees or touches the stupa is purified of negative karma. Even just thinking about the stupa purifies the five uninterrupted negative karmas. That is amazing! It is so powerful! It is like a small flame that eventually grows into a fire that burns many thousands of miles of forest or entire cities.

Even water, rain or dust that just touches the stupa is so blessed that it purifies all the negative karmas of the insects on the ground who come into contact with it. And

the wind that touches such a stupa purifies the negative karmas of people or animals that it contacts and brings a good rebirth. Even if the shadow of the stupa touches people and insects, their heavy negative karma is purified.

From the Kangyur:

If this mantra is put inside a stupa then any being, including evil transmigratory beings, who sees the stupa, hears of the stupa, touches the stupa, or who is touched by dust or wind that comes from this stupa, will be free from all negative karmas. They will be born in the realms of happy transmigratory beings1 and they won’t be reborn in the lower realms.

Everything that touches the land the stupa is on becomes meaningful, including the rain that touches the stupa and then flows to the ground and touches worms. The worms’ negative karma is purified and they will receive a higher rebirth.

If there is a stupa containing this mantra in the center of a road or above a road and cars can pass under it or go around it, this is unbelievable purification. It doesn’t only purify the negative karma of this life, it purifies the negative karma of many past lives and plants the seed of enlightenment.

The Destroyer Qualified Gone Beyond [Shakyamuni Buddha] advised the Bodhisattva Great Sattva: Eliminating All Obscurations, Owner of the Secrecy, Vajra in the Hand [Vajrapani], the four guardians, the deva Unforgettable2 Owner [Brahma], and the devas of Tsangri, the Maha Deva, [the Hindu God Mahashora], and so forth: “You, the capable holy beings, I hand over this heart of the king of the secret mantra. Always keep it, put it in a jeweled samato [container]. Then proclaim it to all places. Continually reveal it to sentient beings. If you make sentient beings hear and see this mantra, their five uninterrupted negative karmas will be purified.”

100,000 Ornaments of Enlightenment (Jangchub Gyänbum)
Finally, as explained by the Buddha in the Kangyur, there are skies of benefits for making even just one prostration, circumambulation, or offering to a holy object containing the mantra of the 100,000 Ornaments of Enlightenment (Jangchub Gyänbum):

By putting even just one mantra of the Ornament of Enlightenment inside a stupa, it brings the same merit as having built 100,000 stupas – whether the stupa is gigantic like Bodhgaya or tiny like the size of a finger. Then, if you dedicate this merit for sentient beings, for their happiness up to full enlightenment, they receive unbelievable benefits and you receive unbelievable merit.

One collects the merit of having made offerings to all the buddhas, to all the Dharma, and to all the Sangha. Why? Because when you make offerings to a stupa

containing the 100,000 Ornaments of Enlightenment Mantra, you are not only making offering to a stupa. It becomes an offering to all the buddhas, the Three Rare Sublime Ones – all the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha that exist in the ten directions, in any universe.

After a person has died, chant that person’s name during the exact moment you put the mantra inside the stupa (before placing it inside the stupa, the mantra should be rolled correctly and covered in yellow cloth). Then you make offerings to the stupa – either actual offerings, or visualized, as in the seven limb prayer. If you visualize offerings, visualize all the flowers inside and outside, all the food offerings, all the water offerings, all the light offerings, everything! You can use all the offerings at my houses in California and Washington, as well as all the offerings at all the FPMT centers.

Buddha said to Ananda: “I explained this sutra for those beings who have very little merit and no devotion, for those who are overcome by doubt and cannot believe in the Dharma. For those sentient beings, I explained the 100,000 Ornaments of Enlightenment mantra.” That means Buddha explained this mantra for us.

Buddha also told Ananda: “In future times, if ordained ones don’t read this sutra that contains the benefits of this mantra and don’t make offering to this mantra, which makes it so unbelievably easy to purify the negative karma that causes one to be reborn in the lower realms and to accumulate the merit to achieve enlightenment and then offer extensive benefit to sentient beings, those ordained ones will suffer in the same way as householders. But if one listens to this teaching and then makes even one stupa with this mantra inside, one makes offering to all the 84,000 teachings of the Buddha.” This means that this mantra is an antidote to the 84,000 delusions, and one creates inconceivable heaps of merit. This is the same as reading the sutra called Tongpa Denpe Do (Sutra of the Ornamented Trunk)

When you put these four dharmakaya relic mantras inside a stupa, even mentioning the name of a person or animal that has died and praying for them brings them a good rebirth, such as birth in a pure land. That person will definitely be liberated from the lower realms. It is very powerful. You can also do the same for very sick people, making dedications for them to be healthy. As you put the mantras inside the stupa (or holy object), you should do the seven-limb practice and make the dedication for that person. This is a very powerful method for healing.

Holy objects such as these liberate sentient beings continuously twenty-four hours a day, every day. They purify the causes of the lower realms and bring sentient beings to the higher realms where they can meet the Dharma and then reach liberation and enlightenment.

Creating holy objects with these special mantras inside and making them available to others brings constant, unbelievable benefit to sentient beings. As soon as stupas and statues of the Buddha are made, they have the power to cause sentient beings to do actions such as circumambulating, prostrating, offering, and so forth, which then become virtuous actions creating the cause of enlightenment, even if those actions are done with the eight worldly dharmas3 and non-virtuous thoughts. These holy objects make it possible for sentient beings to create the cause to meet the Dharma and actualize the path. So even though we who are making these holy objects do not have realizations such as bodhichitta or emptiness, nor have we reached any of the bodhisattva bhumis, the holy objects we make still have the power to liberate sentient beings from the oceans of samsaric suffering, to actualize all the realizations of the path – Guru devotion, the three principles of the path, and the two stages – and then to achieve enlightenment.

These are illustrations of the activity of the Buddha’s unbelievable compassion toward us sentient beings and are but a few of the drops of Buddha’s unbelievable methods to liberate sentient beings quickly from the sufferings of samsara.

Feng Shui Tips to Activate Mentor’s Luck

Published Pebrero 29, 2012 by jptan2012

No one can do things on his or her own. No one is able to achieve success on his or her own. Not only its is absolutely wrong and egoistic to say that I made it on my own, no matter how much the person really believes this, but it is also one of the greatest lie fabricated by mankind. On our way to success, no matter how intelligent you are, no matter how hard you work, we will need somebody to help us get to the top.

We all need somebody to help us. We all need a mentor. Mentor here doesn’t only refer to people who are in power who can teach us things or help us in achieving our goals, although it’s the primary aspect of Mentor’s Luck, mentor here also refers to people who may not be our senior in stature, age, experience, but are around us can is able to contribute to our success.

In Feng Shui, there a lot of ways in which we can activate our Mentor’s Luck, and by doing activating our Mentor’s Luck we start to attract people who may help us along the way.

One of the primary and basic tip in activating Mentor’s Luck is by being positive ourselves. By being truly positive, we start to exude a powerful positive aura, which in turn will attract people who are also positive.

We actually often here people complaining and saying things like: ‘Why am I such a magnet for losers?’ or ‘Why do I always attract bad employees/employers? Or ‘Why do I end up with horrible lovers?’ Well, the answer is because Feng Shui and personal energies attract the people that we project.

So the first and most basic tip is to become positive ourselves!

After doing the first step of exuding a more positive attitude ourselves, we can further boost our Mentor’s Luck by doing the following:

CRYSTAL CLUSTER. Another simple way of activating Mentor’s Luck is by putting a crystal cluster on the Northwest section of your room, home, office, or table. A crystal cluster, which has several ‘points’ of energy has the power to cleanse the energy of the Northwest section, which in turn controls our Mentor’s Luck.

Use Citrine cluster for business or financial mentor luck; Amethyst cluster for someone who can impart to you intelligence and skills in life, rose quartz cluster for relationship mentor luck, and clear quartz cluster for an inner peace guru.

PICTURES. Placing pictures of powerful individuals in the Northwest section of your house or room. Pictures or images carry their own energies, thus praying in front of a Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity, Immortal, Goddess, or Saint (for Christians) is a very powerful tool to achieve your wishes. However, when I said pictures, I’m not referring to the god of your religion but I’m referring to people who you want to emulate. This can be pictures of famous people like HH the 14th Dalai Lama, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, Nelson Mandela, etc. I used to have a picture of Steve Jobs on the Northwest corner of my room, however, since his passing I’ve decided to take it out, because it’s too much Yin energy. Unless, of course, the person is a living Buddha before his/her passing, it’s best not to use a picture of a person who has passed away.

A friend who works as the country head of one of the largest NGO in the world was having a lot of problems in implementing their projects. She found herself losing patience and wanting to quit. She shared that she can just be like Mother Teresa, patient, truly loving, yet persuasive and powerful. I then advised her to put an image of Mother Teresa on the Northwest section of her condo unit, and in the Northwest corner of her office. She did! Needless to say 3 months after she placed the picture she gradually felt the effects of having the picture of Mother Teresa. The implementations of their projects are now smoother and they don’t meet as many hindrances!

Maitreya Buddha also known as the Happy Fat Buddha or Laughing Buddha

IMAGES OF BODHISATTVAS, IMMORTALS, OR DEITIES. Placing images of some powerful Bodhisattvas, Immortals, or Deities in the Northwest section your office or house is another great way of enhancing Mentor’s Luck. Furthermore, if an image of Bodhisattva or Immortal, or a Deity is used, other than enhancing your Mentor’s Luck by blessing the Northwest corner of their energies, you also tap into their blessing. I think this is the best way of activating Mentor’s Luck.

Furthermore, wearing their images as a gold or jade pendant will also bring out Mentor’s Luck blessing from them.

Use the image of the Maitreya Buddha also known as the Great Happy Buddha, Happy Fat Buddha or Laughing Buddha, if you’re working in a very place where there’s an absence of harmony and happiness. If you wish to know more about Maitreya Buddha please click here.

The image of Kuan Kong is highly recommended if you’re the head of a department. One of my previous post will help you know more about Kuan Kong.

The image of the ‘Great Sage, Equal of Heaven’ Sun Wukong also known as the Monkey King or Monkey God is good if you’re in marketing, advertising, sales, or any other field that needs a lot strategy making and creative thinking. To help you better understand why Sun Wukong is best for people whose career involves marketing, advertising, sales, and strategy making, do read my post about him by clicking here.

Receive Showers of Blessings by Tapping Two of the Most Powerful Mantras!

Published Pebrero 18, 2012 by jptan2012

A little over a month ago, I wrote about the power of mantras in a post entitled MANTRA: THE INSTRUMENT TO TAP THE POWER OF SYMBOLIC SCRIPT, SOUND, AND THOUGHT. In that particular post I discussed what is mantra and how it works.

Today, I would like to share with you on how you can receive showers of blessings by tapping two of the most powerful mantras. I’ve mentioned about these mantras in that particular post but I want to talk about it again and share with you some stories about people who had benefitted from these mantras.

The symbolic Script of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra

The mantra I’m talking about are the WISH-GRANTING WHEEL MANTRA more popularly known as the WISH FULFILLING MANTRA – OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT and the NEGATIVE KARMA CLEANSING MANTRA – OM HANU PHASHA (sometimes spelled as PASHA) BHARA HE YE SO HA.

Symbolic Script of the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra – OM HANU PASHA BHARA HE YE SOHA

The Wish Fulfilling Mantra and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra are two of the most powerful mantras given to us by the Buddhas themselves. They are equally as powerful as the Mantra of the Buddha of Compassion, Kuan Yin or Avalokitesvara – OM MANI PADME HUM, or the Mantra of the Medicine Buddha – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA.

Let me discuss first the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra OM HANU PASHA BHARA HE YE SOHA. Sometimes, you’ll find that some of the things that we long for are always ‘within reach’ but some thing will always happen that will prevent us from getting it. For example, wealth loss through a business project gone bad, or career advancement with higher pay that went to somebody else, or wealth that was swindled away from us, etc. The truth is sometimes this is cause by our negative karma who may be blocking some of the positive chi. Reciting the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra will help unblock these blockages and make us more open to receiving luck or blessings.

A friend’s father has been working really hard for the biggest project of his career life. By closing the said deal would be akin to winning the lottery and after about a year, he did close the deal and a few more months after he got the money, but after about 2 weeks he had a stroke! The prognosis of the doctor is really bad and they were told that his father would not be able to walk or move on his own again. Clearly, he won’t be able to enjoy the fruits of his hard work.

My friend called me to ask me whether his father’s BAZI or Paht Chee analysis will be able to shed some light as to why this happened. I worked on his father’s BAZI and saw that he is in a particular stage of his life wherein he would have enjoyed financial wealth, however, it also indicated that he is at a critical stage of his life. The BAZI as I read it didn’t indicate death, neither did it indicate health problem; all I can discern with the analysis is that he is at this critical stage. Naturally, because of what he is going through, I would have to just assume that the ‘critical’ stage refers to his medical condition. This means also that it could only be because of a strong karmic influence. Whether past life or not I’m not sure.

I explained this to my friend and he requested whether Feng Shui could do anything to help the condition of his father. I told him to use some Feng Shui cures but told him that since this may be karmic, it may be beyond ‘traditional’ Feng Shui, this should be inner or spiritual Feng Shui. His family is Catholic but out of desperation they were willing to try Spiritual Feng Shui.

Told him to recite for his father one full mala of the MEDICINE BUDDHA MANTRA. He should do it aloud so his father can hear him and he should do this five times a day. But more than, I explained, since there is a strong indication that whatever happened to his father is karmic he should also recite the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra five times a day. Preferably, he should do this after he has finished reciting the Medicine Buddha Mantra and like the Medicine Buddha Mantra he should recite the mantra loud enough for his father to hear him.

After about 3 weeks of reciting the Medicine Buddha Mantra and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra his father started recovering from his stroke. A few more weeks after he was already strong enough to recite the mantras on his own.

At present, his father is again almost back to his old self and in fact has been working again. To this day he continues to recite both mantras and although he didn’t convert to Buddhism he has invited the image of the Medicine Buddha into his home.

The reason that it was also important for him to recite the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra is because obviously his bad karma prevented him from enjoying a wealth luck that is clearly present as indicated by his BAZI analysis. While reciting the Medicine Buddha Mantra will definitely aid him on his recovery, some of the Medicine Buddha’s blessing earned by the merit of the symbolic sound created by reciting his mantra, it may not be as quick because his own negative karma may block these blessings as it has blocked him from enjoying the wealth luck that he received.

The other mantra mentioned earlier is the Wish-Granting Wheel Mantra or, as I said, more popularly called as the Wish Fulfilling Mantra.

The Wish Fulfilling Mantra is a very powerful mantra, which grants us the blessing of receiving the things that we wish for. In fact, the mantra itself is so powerful that simply knowing it is already a blessing.

A Singaporean friend whose cousin greatly benefitted from the Wish Fulfilling Mantra shared this story that I’m about to share with you. For the purpose of this blog, lets just call her M. M is a 28 years old, Singaporean Chinese, who works as a junior marketing officer of an international company in Singapore. She has been with her company for barely a year when their mother company in London had an opening for a higher position with international scope and naturally with a higher pay. M has always dreamed of migrating to US or UK, that’s precisely why she joined this particular company. However, she also knows that she is still considered as ‘neophyte’ in the said company, she’s just a Junior Marketing Officer, and Sing told her cousin that there’s a Senior Marketing Officer, then a Junior Marketing Manager, then a Senior Marketing Manager, then the Sales and Marketing Director. Apparently, the search for the new position in London is not just in Singapore but also in other countries where the company is present, and they are present in all South East Asian countries, the Asia Pacific region, and also in America, as well as some parts of Europe! The competition is tough! Furthermore, junior and senior marketing officers are not even considered for the position.

M felt and knew that she doesn’t stand a chance and shared this with her mom who in turned shared this with a Tibetan Buddhist monk. The Tibetan Buddhist monk told M’s mom to let M try reciting the Wish Fulfilling Mantra. The instruction is for M to recite 7 full mala of the mantra for 3 days. On the fourth day she can try and send her application with her letter of intent. After which she is to recite 3 full mala for the mantra everyday. M felt that there’s nothing to lose in trying so she heeded the monk’s advice.

To make the long story short M is now in London not for the position that was vacated but when they saw her application they saw another position that fits her. They weren’t really just looking for a ‘local’ to fill in the position but somehow they were impressed with M’s resume that the company for the first time in its history hired an Asian for the said position!

Isn’t that wonderful? From a simple wish with zero possibility to a wish fulfilled!

There are other stories that was shared to me or that I personally experienced about these 2 powerful mantras, but I suggest that the best testimonial would be your own experience.

How does one tap into the blessings of these 2 powerful mantras? Why do they usually go together?

The Wish Fulfilling Mantra always goes with the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra because their effects may be complimentary. As shared with you earlier regarding my friend’s father, the Medicine Buddha mantra might not be as effective if his own negative karma is blocking the said blessing, in the same manner, while tapping into the power of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra it is better to make sure that we continuously cleanse ourselves by the negative karma that we accumulate by also tapping into the blessing of the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra and we do this by reciting the mantra.

I usually say 1 full mala of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra followed by another full mala of the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra once a week. If I have a specific wish I recite them more than once a week.

Furthermore, you can also say the Wish Fulfilling Mantra 7 times and blow on some incense. Once the incense is lighted, its smoke will bring blessing to other beings ‘touched’ by the smoke of the incense. Say the Wish Fulfilling Mantra 7 times and blow on your clothes it blesses you.

If you put the symbolic script of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra above doorways or your door will bless and cleanse all the people who passes underneath them. That’s how powerful these two mantras are.

According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, who perhaps the most famous Tibetan Buddhist monk next to the His Holiness The Dalai Lama and His Holiness the Karmapa, simply seeing the symbolic script of these 2 mantras will greatly benefit us even if you’re not conscious of it.  To know more about symbolic scripts you can read my previous post called MANTRA: THE INSTRUMENT TO TAP THE POWER OF SYMBOLIC SCRIPT, SOUND, AND THOUGHT.

Also according to Lama Zopa Rinpoche wearing the symbolic script of the WISH FULFILLING MANTRA and NEGATIVE KARMA CLEANSING MANTRA as a sacred jewelry will enable us to continuously tap into the blessings of the said mantras. This is precisely why I’ve decided and made sure that both mantras are included in the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

I’ve just written about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT yesterday and I’ve already received 7 requests from people from 4 countries who want to get the pendant for themselves. I’ve made this pendant more affordable by making it smaller. Its diameter is only about ¾ of an inch. Unfortunately, I’m not taking any ‘special orders’ right now because I’m still waiting for the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT of my family, relatives, and friends. Please understand that selling Feng Shui charms such as the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT and the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT are only incidental and is not a means of living. Nevertheless, please feel free to email me if you’re interested to get the pendant, no promises, but I’ll try to request my jeweler to make one for you after all the other orders has been served. You can also just copy the design and have your jeweler make one for you.

If you want you can also get the Mantra Ring design by Lillian Too. It has the Wish Fulfilling Mantra and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra, but it does not have the Medicine Buddha Mantra, Seed Syllable of Green Tara – Tam (a short version of the mantra OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA), image of Kuan Kong, Medicine Buddha, and Yellow Dzambhala. However, you can get them separately.

NOTE: I’m now able to serve request of readers to avail of the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. You can also read a reader’s personal testimony about the pendant by clicking here. She had her wish fulfilled right after she wore the pendant.

Mantra: The Instrument to Tap the Power of Symbolic Sound, Script, and Thought

Published Enero 14, 2012 by jptan2012

In my previous posts, I made mention of wearing Mantra pendants to counter some negative chi or energy. I got some emails from readers inquiring as to what mantra really is and how does a mantra work.

The truth is the question is not easily answered because nobody really knows as to where mantras really originated. Furthermore, it will really take a whole ‘curriculum’ for us to fully understand what a mantra is and another curriculum to understand how they work. Having said that though, its worth noting that the most pervading belief of Buddhist is that mantras were directly transmitted by the Buddhas and/or the Bodhisattvas to mankind.

Going back to the question. Mantras are sacred sound and instrument of thoughts transmitted by Buddha and Bodhisattvas to us. It’s symbolic script has the extended power of the words of the Buddha and Bodhisattva’s themselves, and chanting these mantras give us the ‘power’ to manifest our wants and needs. Furthermore both the symbolic script and the sound produced by reciting the mantras also serves as protection and cleanser of our negative karma.

A mantra is so powerful that by simply seeing its symbolic script, whether you’re aware of it or not, gives you some blessing from the Buddhas or the Bodhisattvas. Hearing mantras chanted also gives you blessings even if you’re not seeking it and/or even if you don’t believe in it.

A mantra has the power to enhance positive energy and karma. But more important than that it neutralizes negative energy and karma. It has the power to remove problems, crisis, and sufferings. It has the power to heal the sick whether the illness is physical, psychological, emotional, or spiritual. Furthermore, personally for me, mantras gives a calming effect. Reciting mantras while having its symbolic script around you or on your body awakens your spiritual consciousness, you become more positive and you attract more positive energy which may translate to different things like peacefulness, wealth (both material and spiritual, health, etc. You also become more positive and you project a more positive radiance.

By reciting mantras you attract what you need, desire, and want. If you recite mantras for others you become an instrument of blessings.

By writing mantras you subconsciously attuned yourself to the symbolic script and your body starts to absorb the positive vibrations emitted by the symbolic script.

By wearing symbolic script of mantras or surrounding yourself with the symbolic script of mantras you ‘activate’ a continuous repetition of your chants or recitations. Furthermore, like writing them you subconsciously attuned yourself to the symbolic script and your body also starts to absorb the positive vibrations or energy emitted by the symbolic script. Add to that is that you are constantly blessed by the symbolic script. This is further enhanced when the mantra is on a natural precious stones or gems, and/or in precious metals like gold, titanium, platinum and silver.

The most common way of tapping to the powers of mantras is thru its recitation or chanting. To the Hindus the chanting is more important and they really frown upon wrong pronunciation. For the Chinese, to which symbolism plays a very important of their culture, writing and surrounding oneself of the symbolic script is more important. But for the Tibetans, equal importance is placed upon the writing and surrounding of symbolic script and of chanting the mantras. But, unlike the Hindus, they are more ‘forgiving’ with the pronunciations, however, it should not be an excuse for us to not strive for us to get the proper pronunciation.

All mantras, or sacred mantra as Lillian Too would call them to differentiate the ordinary ‘mantra’ made by people, have great powers to neutralize negative karma, to bestow blessings, and protect individual who comes across them. However, there are mantras that may be more specific.

One of the most common mantra is the mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Kuan Yin as he/she is known by the Chinese, and Avalokitesvara in Tibetan. The mantra is OM MANI PADME HUM (HUM is pronounced as HUNG with a long U sound). The mantra is specially revered by the Dalai Lama because he is a direct incarnation of the Bodhisattva. The mantra of Kuan Yin is so powerful that it has the power to bring immediate blessing.

Symbolic Script of the Mantra - OM MANI PADME HUM. This is considered as the 'national' mantra of Tibetans. All the Dalai Lamas has a special affinity with this mantra because they are believed to be the direct incarnation of the 'energy' of the Bodhisattva of Compasion Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin.

I personally chant 42 different mantras in a week. However, the most dear to me are…

The mantra of Amitabha Buddha which is OM AMI DEWA HRIH. This is a great protection and general blessing mantra.

Symbolic Script of the Mantra - OM AMI DEWA HRIH. This is a very powerful protection and general blessing mantra. Just like OM MANI PADME HUM, everybody should chant it everyday.

The mantra of Yellow Dzambhala which is OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE SOHA. This is a great wealth generating mantra.

Symbolic Script of the Mantra - OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE SOHA with its seed syllable. Some people believe that among all the Dzambhala's (Jambala, Dzambala, Zambala), the Yellow Dzambhala is the most powerful one.

The mantra of the White Dzambhala which is OM PADMO KRODA ARYA DZAMBHALA HRIH DAYA HUM PHAT. Another wealth generating mantra.

The Mantra of Goddess Tara which is OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA. A powerful mantra to be used when you need swift ‘response’ or results.

Symbolic Script of the Mantra - OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA. This is the mantra of Goddess Tara or Green Tara who is also known as the Swift Liberator.

The Wish Fulfilling Mantra which is OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT. A very powerful mantra that fulfills ones’ good wishes.

The Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra which is OM HANU PHASHA BHARA HEYE SOHA.  A mantra that helps cleanse negative karma from previous lives and/or grave negative karma accumulated.

The Protection, Environment Purifying and Immediate Negative Karma Cleaning Mantra which is OM AH HUM. This mantra gives short term immediate protection to those who chant it, also it has the power to purify the environment from negative chi or energy. It also cleanses all the immediate or recent light negative karma created through our speech, thought, and action.

Symbolic Script of the Mantra OM AH HUM.

The Medicine Buddha Mantra which is TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE (pronounced as BHE-KAND-ZAY) BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA.

Symbolic Script of the Mantra - TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA. At the middle is its seed syllable.

Wearing the symbolic script of any of these mantras will bring great blessings. However, there goes again the sad truth that most ‘producers’ of sacred script mantra jewelry will only make one mantra per piece of jewelry. Honestly, I don’t understand why can’t they make several mantra in one piece, since size doesn’t really matter. It need not be totally be visible to the naked eye as long as the sacred script is there and it is written in a correct way.

To address this concern I decided to design my own Buddha and Mantra jewelry. For now I’m calling this the Full Mantra Pendant or Medallion. Unfortunately, I’m unable to share a picture right now because it it still being ‘produce’ by my jeweler, and the only file photo of my FULL MANTRA PENDANT is a tiff file. WordPress doesn’t accept tiff file.

But just the same I would like to share with you what’s in the FULL MANTRA PENDANT.

At the front are the images of the Medicine Buddha (a powerful healing and provider revered both in Tibetan, Chinese, and Indian Buddhism), Kuan Kong or Guan Gong (a protector and wealth god revered in Chinese Buddhism), and Yellow Dzambhala ( a powerful wealth god revered in Tibetan and Indian Buddhism).

Also at the front are the Kalachakra symbol and the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM.

The Kalachakra symbol is one of the most powerful protection symbol in Buddhism. It actually consists of ten syllable mantra, with it symbolic script condensed into one. The mantra itself is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, the mantra of the Kalachakra is never chanted without the mantra OM AH HUM. Making the complete mantra of Kalachakra - OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. This is the reason why I decided to put the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM on top of the Kalachakra symbol. As mentioned this is a very powerful protection symbol and can be likened to the Scapular of the Catholics. In fact, you'll seldom see a Tibetan Monk without wearing the symbol of the Kalachakra somewhere on their body. It may be hidden but most likely they have it somewhere on their body. But you'll never see them have the symbolic scripts tattooed because it is considered extremely bad luck to have a mantra tattooed on your body.

At the back of the Full Mantra Pendant are the Medicine Buddha mantra, Yellow Dzambhala Mantra, Wish Fulfilling Mantra, Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra, and the seed syllable of Goddess Tara. Every mantra has a seed syllable and in instances wherein you can’t put the whole mantra the seed syllable works as well.

Also at the back are the Victory Banner and Windhorse or Lung-Ta. The Victory Banner is a powerful Buddhist symbol that connotes success in all undertakings. The Lung-Ta or Windhorse is a symbol of well-being and good fortune. You’ll see the Lung-Ta carrying a ‘Wish Fulfilling Jewel of Enlightenment’ which brings success through wisdom and knowledge thus this a very good symbol for those who wants advancement in their career, professional, or business life. This is also a very good symbol to be use who wants to be famous through the arts.

I’ll definitely share with you the picture of the Full Mantra Pendant once I get and approve the final rendering of the pendant.

THE FOLLOWING WAS ADDED EXACTLY 35 DAYS AFTER THIS PARTICULAR POST WAS WRITTEN:

I’ve just recently been able to get the first FULL MANTRA PENDANT mentioned on this particular post. I’ve changed its name to the more appropriate WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. I know it’s a mouthful but it hopes to communicate what the pendant is really all about. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to include the Yellow Dzambhala Mantra, it simply doesn’t have enough space. If you want to know more about the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT please read the blog post about it by clicking here.
