Bodhisattva Wishfulling and Master Protection Amulet Pendant (1): Getting Acquainted with LAMA ATISHA AMULET!

Published Nobyembre 9, 2018 by jptan2012

LAMA ATISHA AMULETThe LAMA ATISHA AMULET is said to be one of the most powerful protection amulet in Buddhism. According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, simply seeing or touching a copy of the said amulet will bring a person tremendous protection against physical harm.

It functions like that of the scapular for Catholics. If a person has this on his body at that time of his or her death, it is guaranteed that he or she will have a good rebirth and will be saved from the lower realms. If displayed inside the house or office, one will be saved from bad influences of other people and it will help create harmony. It is also very good to have this amulet if one is in the hospital, to protect a person from the yin chi of the hospital, and it will also prevent you from getting the attention of the lost souls. Thus, it is also a very good amulet to have to wear when one is going to a funeral or cemetery.

I don’t have a personal story or story that I heard first hand about the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, but one of the most popular story associated by the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET, and is widely accepted by the different Buddhist traditions is a story that happened fairly recently. It was suppose to have happened to a young Tibetan man and his family.

As you all know, China has invaded Tibet and a lot of people they are either doing some ethnic cleansing or is slowly erasing the cultures and traditions of the Tibetan who are still in Tibet. The man’s name is Tenzin Choejor ( the truth is Tenzin is a fairly common Tibetan boy’s name because it means ‘holder of Buddhist doctrines’, and the current Dalai Lama’s name himself is Tenzin. I was told that Choezor is not a family name but it is a second name, which means Dharma Wealth. From the name of the man, it can be concluded that his parents are devout Buddhist, but this is not unique because most Tibetans are devout Buddhist.)

Tenzin Choejor’s family is one of the many Tibetans who’ve experienced oppression in Tibet. He was born after the 14th Dalai Lama has fled to Tibet to escape the Chinese oppression, so it can be said that he has never experienced true freedom. He has always long for to escape the Chinese oppression of Tibet but has not dared to do it because all his family are in Tibet. However, his perspective changed when he got married and started to have his own family.

It is said that Tenzin Choejor has planned to escape with his parents, but in a country ruled by oppression and where paranoia is really high, the government soon found out about his plan to escape. It is said that it was possible that another relative or a friend squealed on him. Like most Tibetans who plan to escape or oppose the Chinese government, he was tortured and separated from his family and was put to hard labor for several years. Upon his release, he find it hard to start a new life, because he was considered as an ‘ex-convict’ and even fellow Tibetans who took pity on him will not hire him because they’re afraid that they might earn the ire of the Chinese government. This is when he realized and decided that the only way for him to survive and take care of his family is if they escape Tibet. This time, however, Tenzin Choejor is more careful and he only confided to his father, who told him to ask for the blessing of his grandfather, his father’s uncle, for a blessing because it will be a long journey, a very difficult one, and if caught they might be killed on the spot or if they’re not caught they might die of freezing in the mountains. His father also cautioned him to think again of his plans because Tenzin Choejor’s children then aged 10 and 7 might not survive the trip. However, Tenzin Choejor knew that’s the only way for them to have a better life, and he thought it is better to risk their lives that forever live under the Chinese oppression.

Tenzin Choejor great uncle is one of the few monks left in Tibet who has personally met the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, and because he is monk in a place under Chinese rule, it is expected that he is very poor. So he has nothing to offer Tenzin Choejor but the blessing that Tenzin Choejor seeks from him. He performed some Buddhist protection ritual, which was improvised to adjust to their situation, but then took Tenzin Choejor aside to tell him that there is one thing that he would like to give Tenzin Choejor.

He told Tenzin Choejor that he believe that the only reason he was able to escape the Chinese’s physical oppression, unlike most monks, is because of an amulet that he has kept for a long time. He told Tenzin Choejor that he believes that the amulet is one of the reasons that he remained alive under the hands of the Chinese communist government. He then gave Tenzin Choejor a leather cloth where the image of LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET is printed. He told Tenzin Choejor that the amulet would keep his family safe. It is said that Tenzin Choejor initially refused to accept the amulet, but his great uncle insisted and told him that he has no need for the amulet because of his old age and that he is ready to part with his body.

Tenzin Choejor then proceeded to escape Tibet. It must be noted that after the initial exodus of Tibetans from Tibet, the Chinese communist government has intensified border security, making it harder for all Tibetan planning to go to exile to leave Tibet. There is no exact statistics as to how many people have been killed or captured and tortured just because the seek a better life. Tenzin Choejor armed with determination and faith in his ‘religion’ decided to set out on an escape with his wife and two young children.

On his way to India, Tenzin Choejor encountered several problems, but somehow they manage to get away with it. Among these two things are an encounter with a Chinese soldiers and a fight against nature.

First, on their escape, they literally came across some Chinese soldiers, and because of fatigue and coldness because of the freezing snow, he and his wife noticed them a little too late. They came across two drunken Chinese soldiers, and was almost apprehended, in fact, a gun was already pointed at them. Should the soldiers decided to shoot at them, the soldiers won’t get reprimanded because there is a standing order to shoot to kill all people who are trying to escape. Fearing for the life of his family, Tenzin Choejor used his body to block his wife and kids, and instinctively touched the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET given to him by his great uncle and started to call on the Buddhas. According to their testimony, Tenzin Choejor’s wife didn’t know where he mustered her courage to talk to the soldiers.

Tenzin Choejor’s wife knows how to speak Chinese, being born and raised under the Chinese communist government; Chinese has been her second language. Tenzin Choejor knows the language also but because he grew up in the countryside he understands it better than he can speak. His wife on the other hand knows how to speak it but not fluently either. But she managed to address the soldiers and pretend that she is Chinese, and when asked why Tenzin Choejor’s himself doesn’t speak she told them that her husband is deaf – mute. There are many loopholes to her cover, like how can she explain their looks and what are they doing in the mountain, but because it was dark and maybe because the Chinese soldiers were drunk they let them go. Tenzin Choejor believes that it is because of LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET.

The second ordeal was when they were in the mountain, Tenzin Choejor’s second child got really ill. Without medicine all Tenzin Choejor and his wife can do are to call on the help of the Buddhas. Tenzin Choejor decided to take off the amulet and placed it on top of his son’s body. Needless to say, the son got healed.

After weeks of travelling in the mountain they finally got to the border of Tibet and India, where they plan to go in exile and seeks the Dalai Lama’s protection. But little did they know that India besieged by thousands and thousand of Tibetan exiles and without a place to put them has made it harder for Tibetans to go inside their country. Though they don’t understand each other, Tenzin Choejor understands the problem with their facial and body language. He started to touch the amulet again and hope for the best. Soon they were met by a Tibetan who took their story. Three days after they were put on a holding area, luckily with food, they were told that they could stay in India.

According to Tenzin Choejor, and these were acknowledge by the highest ranking lamas, it was because of the LAMA ATISHA PROTECTION AMULET that Tenzin Choejor and his family survived the ordeal.LAMA ATISHA AMULET 2

But who is LAMA ATISHA?

For that allow me to share his story using Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s own words. The following was lifted from the archive of FPMT.

Having a little bit of understanding of the life story of Atisha is very beneficial for our mind, so we can try to understand the teaching he wrote. By understanding Atisha’s life story and how he practiced Dharma and achieved realizations, devotion arises and we can feel that his teaching is most precious and pure. 1

Actually it is a very long life story, and it is divided into three parts. In order to have some idea about the great bodhisattva Atisha and how he benefited sentient beings, there are stories about his birth, his home, his birthplace and his early life. The stories explain how he achieved great knowledge and realizations with that holy body. Then after achieving the knowledge and realizations of the path, he benefited the teachings and helped sentient beings— he led the disciples and sentient beings to happiness.

Atisha’s birthplace was in Bengal, India. He was born as a prince and his family was extremely wealthy. He was surrounded by servants and workers, and there were 100,000 people just in his palace. The palace had thirteen golden roofs and 25,000 golden banners on the top, and there were also many pools, like in the West. At the palace there were 25,000 pools and beautiful parks, gardens of beautiful flowers that people could enjoy, seven bridges, and special trees that only grow in India.

When Atisha was three, he became an expert in general education—in astrology, letters, the brahmas, these things. He also became expert in discriminating the inner and outer being, so his parents wanted him very badly to take the place of the king. They tried very hard, but after some time he left with 300 horses, disguised as an army going to fight.

Many people went into the forest with Atisha to seek the guru. He took many teachings on refuge and bodhicitta, and then the guru sent him home to check up and try to understand the suffering of life. This happened three times. He came back, the guru sent him to another guru, and that guru sent him home to check up on the shortcomings of worldly life. His parents tried very hard to have him marry and take the place of a king. They invited all the beautiful women of the country to a party, and let them all dance around, but it didn’t work.

Atisha explained, “ There is no difference for my mind between this palace and a prison. There is no difference between beautiful, expensive clothes and the torn cloth in the garbage. There is no difference between delicious food and dog meat and pus. There is no difference between princesses and mara women—devil women.” Why devil women? Because they transform into beautiful bodies and cheat us. His parents listened to him.

Atisha followed 157 gurus perfectly and received many teachings, initiations and Vajrayana teachings. Once, while he was at home, Tara, the female aspect of Buddha, instructed him in a dream not to be attached to the samsaric happiness of worldly life. After this, Atisha went to see his guru. Then one day, after receiving many initiations, he thought, “There is no Vajrayana teaching left that I don’t know. I have become the most learned.” He felt a little bit of pride. That night, he had a dream that many female dakinis— transformations of buddhas who have high realizations of tantra—showed him many Vajrayana texts that he had never seen before. This made him lose his feelings of pride.

Atisha wanted to receive Mahamudra realization in his lifetime, by living in Vajrayana conduct. One of his gurus, Rahula, suddenly realized with his psychic power that Atisha was thinking this. Without any resistance, Rahula appeared in front of Atisha and instructed him, “What are you doing, forgetting all the sentient beings by leaving them? Take ordination and do great work for the teachings. This will be greatly beneficial for the teachings.” So, Atisha took ordination when he was twenty-nine years old. He was persuaded to do so by his guru and also by the buddha’s female aspect, Tara, Guru Shakyamuni Buddha, Maitreya Buddha and many other buddhas and Vajrayana deities such as Heruka, in his dreams.

After some time, when he was going around the Bodhgaya stupa—the temple in India, the most holy place where Guru Shakyamuni Buddha received enlightenment— above the stupa, in space, he saw the transformation of a young woman asking an old woman a question. At that time Atisha was concerned with quickly receiving enlightenment, and in space the young woman was asking the old woman, “What path should we practice in order to quickly receive enlightenment?” The old woman said, “Train the mind in love and compassion, in bodhicitta.”

Again, when Atisha was going around the stupa, there were paintings on the walls that talked to each other. One painting asked the other what path we should follow to reach enlightenment quickly, and the other answered, “Train the mind in love and compassion, and bodhicitta.”

Again, when Atisha was going around near Nagarjuna’s caves, he saw the statues of Buddha communicating, saying, “Train the mind in love and the compassionate thought, bodhicitta.” There was one ivory statue, and it said, “Yogi, if you want to quickly receive enlightenment, train the mind in love and compassion, and the thought of bodhicitta.” Many statues spoke like this.

Atisha went to see Guru Serlingpa, and he spent about twelve years taking the complete teachings on bodhicitta. In the presence of Guru Serlingpa, he received the actual realization of bodhicitta. Then Lama Serlingpa predicted that he should go to Tibet, the northern snow land.

At that time, there was a lot of degeneration of the teachings in Tibet. The people did not know how to practice the teachings, and they were confused about the practice of sutra and tantra together. The king of Tibet, Lha Lama Yeshe Ö, sent twenty-one boys to India to study Dharma and all of them except two died from the heat. These two came back to Tibet and told the king that everyone was talking about Atisha, the pandit, and that they should invite him to Tibet to help. These two translators’ names were Rinchen Sangpo and Legshey.

As soon as Lha Lama Yeshe Ö, the king of Tibet, heard the name of Atisha, incredible devotion arose in his mind, and he decided to invite Atisha to Tibet. He sent many gold offerings to India to invite Atisha, but it didn’t work. Then afterwards, he went himself to find gold for Atisha, and he was captured and put in the prison by an irreligious king who didn’t want the spread of Dharma in Tibet.

King Lha Lama Yeshe Ö’s nephew, Jangchub Ö, came to see him in prison. The irreligious king told Jangchub Ö, “I won’t free your uncle until you find gold the size of his body.” So, Jangchub Ö found enough gold to reach up to his neck, but still the irreligious king was not satisfied. He said, “If you don’t bring gold the size of his head, I won’t let him be free from prison.” Again, Jangchub Ö went to his uncle, the king of Tibet, and explained all these things.

The imprisoned king of Tibet, Lha Lama Yeshe Ö, explained to his nephew that since a lot of gold was offered to the irreligious king and he was still not satisfied, Jangchub Ö should not offer this king even one handful of gold. King Lha Lama Yeshe Ö said he was now very old and did not have long to live, and it would be more beneficial for his nephew, Jangchub Ö, to take the gold. He said to Jangchub Ö, “I don’t care if I die in prison. Take all this gold and ask Atisha to come to Tibet and spread the Dharma.” Then the king sent a message to Atisha through his nephew, saying, “I gave up my life to invite you to Tibet. Please guide me with your compassion. What I have in my mind is only for you to come to Tibet and spread the teachings.”

The imprisoned king sent the message with Jangchub Ö with a suffering, frantic voice, and then he passed away in prison. His nephew sent a translator with many gold offerings to invite Atisha, but the kings and abbots of India wanted Atisha to stay there. Finally, Atisha received permission and he came secretly to Tibet and helped spread the Dharma there. According to his teachings, he wrote the Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment there.

Atisha spread the pure Mahayana teaching like the rising sun, and all conflict, ignorance, and wrong conceptions were destroyed. His text was translated into English by some Tibetan lamas and other translators. I am reading the translation of this teaching because it is extremely beneficial. It is so short. Atisha did great work and brought so much benefit to India and Tibet. In India he destroyed many followers of other religions, wrong paths and wrong conceptions. He did great work.

These days, many young people from the West have the chance to hear the teachings and to understand and practice these meditations on the gradual path to enlightenment. They can find satisfaction in their lives, and they can make their lives meaningful and happy. They integrate it in their own mind, and they understand that there is a chance to make their lives meaningful. All these things are due to the kindness of Atisha, the great bodhisattva.

This great bodhisattva, Atisha, lived in discipline, and had the realization of moral conduct. He kept the 253 precepts purely, and on the basis of that, the bodhisattva’s precepts, the moral conduct precepts and the Vajrayana precepts. He had unshakeable, firm, one-pointed concentration that could last for years—even if hundreds of rockets were flying nearby they couldn’t disturb or shake his meditation. He had perfect realization of shunyata, the absolute nature, and he achieved high tantric realizations, seeing himself in the form of deities.

Atisha had high tantric realization without projections, and he did not see ordinary places—we see an ordinary house built of mud or cement, an impure place, but Atisha had only pure projections and pure view, and he always saw the view of the mandala of the deities. He had high Vajrayana realizations and he was able to transform even kaka into nectar and poison into medicine.

We can meditate like this to increase devotion to Atisha’s teachings. We can do checking meditation according to that. We may find it difficult at the beginning of the subject, and it may take time to understand, but by checking and understanding more and more the various meditations and teachings, gradually it will become clear within our mind.

Please note that Choejor is also spelled as Choezor and that the story from the archive of FPMT is part of Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s teaching of the life and work of Lama Atisha at 9th Kopan Course in 1976.

Understanding the Power of Jade – Powerful Holy Jade Items for Wealth, Health, Harmony and Protection!

Published Hunyo 13, 2018 by jptan2012

jade-zoom-1I have been receiving a lot of messages encouraging me to continue this blog. However, it is already a “done deal” that this blog will end once it reaches the 1000th post. This is also the reason why my most recent articles focus more on empowering you to do your own Feng Shui and to understanding what needs to be done in case there is a Feng Shui blunder.

Some people are also asking about getting amulets after I have ended this blog. Well, it is possible that amulets will find their way to you if you are ready for it. However, you have to understand that sometimes you need to be able to understand when that time has come, sometimes an amulet that comes your way now because you need it will not present itself again in the future should you decide to let go of that opportunity.

Speaking of amulets, today’s article is about some special amulets. I think this is something being made available to us by Guru Lama because of the pending ending of this blog.

Those who have been with me in this journey of Feng Shui blogging right when it started will know that one of the most powerful natural Feng Shui tool from nature aside from the metal gold is the power of gemstones. For the Chinese, the foremost of all these gemstones is the jade.

I have written about the power of jade. In fact, the Piyao (also called or spelled as Pi Yao, Pixie, Pi Xie, Pi Xiu, or Pixiu) is only truly effective when it is made of gold or jade. Needless to say, real jade because there are so many fake jades in the market. It is not an exaggeration when I say that most jade Piyaos in the market now are made of fake jade. Of course, the most powerful ones are those that are blessed by a high lama or monk, and are made of empowered gold like the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO or empowered jades. They are empowered thru mantras, sutras, and/or pujas performed by Bhiksus or Bhiksunis or high lamas.

Piyao5

It also has fierce but still friendly face, this indicates that while you can be fierce in business or work, you will still gain the support and admiration of the people around you. This also means that you can you charm to get to your wealth luck.


HISTORICAL POWERFUL MYSTICAL USES OF JADE

Let me go back to the power of jade.

Contrary to popular belief that a jade is a Chinese stone, jade is actually used in various cultures and nations and Ancient Civilization or Ancient Societies, but I think it was given it highest regard by the Chinese. But history shows that jade is revered by a lot of cultures. Not to mention jade is also found in different countries like Mexico, India, Canada, New Zealand, and a lot more. However, they jade experts believes that superior jade is found in China, Russia, and Myanmar, formerly known as Burma.

These countries who also had the jade believes in the power of the jade.

In fact, the ancient Mexicans has very high regard for the jade. Like the Chinese they make that jade is use in the carving of their gods. In fact, Kukulcan and Quetzalcoatl, the supreme gods of the ancient Mexicans are traditionally depicted with jade in their eyes and navel. They believe that if jade is not used in their eyes and their navel the images are just plain simple images and will not be able to channel the energies of the said god.

It was also a custom of the Mayans to place small pieces of jade in the mouth of their ruler the Jaguar Bird at his death. It is said that the jade will act as the receptacle of the dead ruler’s spirit. The Mayans also associate the jade with water (money), vegetation (wealth), the sky (heavenly blessings), life (chi or energy), renewal and rebirth. You will notice that this is very similar to the Chinese. If you remember a previous article, it is customary for the Chinese to put a jade cicada in the mouth of a person who has just died to ensure good rebirth.

The belief of putting a jade in the mouth of the dead was shared by other ancient cultures. Some of you might find it surprising the jade was found in the tombs or even in the pyramids of Egyptian rulers. They were place at the heart of the Egyptian ruler. No definite study was made to understand why use jade as representative of the heart, that we can only surmise that they believe that jade is the stone that can aid good rebirth and capture the good essence of the heart of a person as the Chinese belief states.

Furthermore, in Mesoamerica, a jade is considered so precious and powerful that people of the “lower” class bracket are not allowed to own a jade. Because they believe that this will make the person powerful. A person of the “lower” social class bracket was found to have a jade, no matter how small, they would be immediately executed. Many books have written about this, but none has written about it as extensively as Peterson Fredrick wrote in his book “Ancient Mexico: Introduction to the Pre-Hispanic Cultures.”

According to Peterson Fredrick, the Aztecs has a law for a “man of low quality” to own a jade, because the stone was reserved for high priests and nobility. It is also considered as one of the most important offering, still much like what Chinese Buddhists do in offering jades and gold these days. That jade is used as a special sacred offering is fully evident in Cenoté and Chichen Itzá.

In the ancient Southwest Pacific, they believe that when you give a jade to a person, you also give a part of your soul. Thus, it is only given to a loved one or parent to child or vice versa.


CHINESE BUDDHIST AND TAOISTS CONTINUE TO USE JADE FOR ITS POWERFUL MYSTICAL PROPERTIES

But as mentioned, nobody has used jade and revered it as much as the Chinese does. Chinese Buddhist and/or Taoists believes that an image of a Buddha, or Bodhisattva, or deity or god made of jade is superior to other images. Contemporary Buddhist monks try to downplay this belief because they don’t want people to have a misplaced belief that non – jade images are worthless, but to this day a lot of Buddhist monks believes this to be the case.

From ancient times to this day, the Chinese believes that everyone should own at least one jade. The stone will serve to protect you, bless you with wealth and health. I for one owns several pieces of jade, including a very rare piece of Chung Kwei black jade. My black jade is only one of the two black jades in the country. On top of owning a black jade, every single member of the family has at least one small piece of jade. The younger generation are all gifted with a jade, but of course, my generation and the older generation all have several pieces. I have mentioned several times in this blog my jade Kuan Yin pendant and several pieces of Piyao jade, I still wear this jade everyday even though I already have the very powerful SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. On top of that I also have a jade ring set in gold. Sharing all these not to brag about my jade collection, but to show how much value and belief I have in a jade. In fact, Lillian Too, who perhaps is the world’s most famous Feng Shui writer has repeatedly mentioned and given credit to her jade bangle for her success and wealth.

Chung Kwei Black Jade

This is a rare black jade pendant image of Chung Kwei. Was fortunate enough to find one in Beijing, China in a small shop. Remember in choosing a Chong Kwei or Chung Kwei or Zhung Kwei or Zhong Kwei, always get a something that’s made of a black stone or gold. Otherwise, it might not be very effective.

But more than success and wealth, a jade is also a very good protection stone. I remember, when we were still young, my sister had an accident in school. She feels from the stairs, she was not hurt, even though the stairs were made of hard stone. Her jade bangle broke into two though.

I can go on and on and on about how powerful a jade is. In fact, one can write a book simply talking about its mystical properties and wonderful stories from people who experienced these energies. But one of the most powerful way to know this is simply by experiencing the power of a jade. Regular readers of this blog know that I always say that each and every person should at least own one piece of jade.


GETTING TO KNOW THE GEMSTONE JADE

Now another misconception about jade is that it is always green. That’s not true. There are brown jade, yellow jade, white jade, pink jade, purple or violet jade, orange jade, red jade, and as mentioned the rare black jade. But of course, the most common one is a green jade. But even the green jade has various shade. There is the ice jade, which is a clear type or opaque type of a very light almost white jade, there is the natural green jade, there is the imperial jade, the ink jade, which a lot of scrupulous sellers will tell you is the much-coveted black jade but is not the same as that of the black jade.

NOTE: AN INK JADE WILL LOOK BLACK, UNTIL YOU FLASH SOME LIGHT AT THE BACK WHERE IT WILL SHOW IT’S TRUE GREEN COLOR. THE BLACK JADE IS NOT REALLY BLACK BUT GRAYISH WITH WHITE. SEE THE PHOTO OF MY BLACK CHUNG KWEI.

One point of concern is that it is quite difficult to distinguish a real jade from a fake jade, and also quite difficult to distinguish a low-grade jade to a high-grade jade unless you have developed the skill to see it. Some people will also say that aventurine is a jade, aventurine is aventurine and it is a not a jade. Chrysophrase and Dioptase are two other green stones that are very jade like but are more porous. A lot of sellers will tell you that these stones are high quality jade but if you have developed the eye for real jade, or if you got them and wear them you will soon notice that they are not real jade.

Jade actually only has two major varieties, and they are nephrite and jadeite. Of all the jade, other than the black jade, it’s the Burmese imperial jade.


POWERFUL HOLY JADE ITEMS FOR HEALTH, WEALTH, HARMONY AND PROTECTION

Those of you who live in China, Honking, Taiwan, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Cambodia, Nepal, Myanmar, etc. Knows that it is customary for Buddhists who have been blessed or who are asking for a favor from the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas to donate gold such as rings, necklaces, or even gold bars or gold coins. Recently, some of these, after being empowered, were again made available to the public by way of the SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO. However, it has to be noted that it is also EQUALLY customary to donate jade and/or other gemstones. But more often than not jade is offered because a lot of Buddhists considers jade to be a superior jade as compared to emerald, ruby, and even diamonds. It is only the best first-class jades that are donated to the temple.

These jades and other gemstones are also put at the foot of an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva where they receive strong positive chi from the chanting of mantras, reciting of sutras, and pujas performed by Bhiksus, Bhiksunis and/or high lamas like Guru Lama. These jades are then included in the images of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas. However, Guru Lama’s temple has acquired so many of these jades, and people are still continuously donating high quality jade to the temple. So, Guru Lama thought of making these a FEW of these jades available to the public to help raise funds for food for novice monks, building temples, and for their charity work. By doing these the ones who will received these jades in exchange of stipulated amount for exchange of energies will also receive not just high-quality jade but also comes with the jade the energies from the pujas, chanting of mantras, and recitation of sutras.

These jades are going to be made available to the public so that they will be blessed. Some of these jades are gem quality and thus they will be made thru a ring with a mantra. It will come in different sizes so hopefully all those who are interested will find one that will fit them.

But more than that, there are 15 of almost century old jade ingot. You all know that an ingot is one of the most powerful symbol to welcome wealth, money or financial luck in Feng Shui. Made from either jade or gold it becomes more powerful. But if it comes from the temple who has been empowering it for almost a century it should be extremely magical. There are 15 of these holy jade ingots, but only 3 are being made available thru this blog. Having this holy jade ingot will definitely bring in a lot of wealth luck to a family or person where this ingot is. This is especially highly recommendable who have their own house and/or are moving to their own house/new house.

holy jade ingot 1

This HOLY JADE INGOT is a very powerful tool to bring in wealth luck. Specially good for those moving to a new house or already have their own home. This jade is roughly a century old jade. The actual size of this is about 3 inches in length. Approximately.  Apologies for the amateur photo. The monks who took the picture are not camera savvy.

On top of that, there 3 holy jade teapots. These holy jade teapots are about half – a – century old, and one will be made available thru this blog. For those who are familiar with Feng Shui will know that a teapot is also a powerful wealth symbol and harmony symbol. Those who are running a business and wish to close a deal can put rock salt in the holy jade teapot for 7 days, then put water in it and pour the water onto your head on the day of business transaction. This is also a powerful house cleansing tool. The process of which will be shared with the person who is lucky enough to get this.

This HOLY JADE TEAPOT is around half – a – century old. Just like the HOLY JADE INGOT, this is hand carved and hand polished. Very good wealth luck and financial luck enhancer and also good for powerful protection ritual. Also very good harmony Feng Shui tool. Apologies for the amateur photo. The monks who took the picture are not camera savvy.

This HOLY JADE TEAPOT is around half – a – century old. Just like the HOLY JADE INGOT, this is hand carved and hand polished. Very good wealth luck and financial luck enhancer and also good for powerful protection ritual. Also very good harmony Feng Shui tool. You can pool rock salt, sea salt, pink himlayan salt, or black lava salt inside. Apologies for the amateur photo. The monks who took the picture are not camera savvy.

Of course, there a few more jades, some are rings, or gem quality that can be made into a ring or pendant. There are different images also like the Cicada, Piyao, Happy Buddha. Naturally all these are empowered thru the pujas, chanting of mantras and recitation of sutras performed by Bhiksus, Bhiksunis and other high lamas like Guru Lama.

These are all very old pieces, and you can actually see some signs of age to this holy pieces. I think it’s really part of the charisma of these pieces. Imagine these pieces receiving all the energies from the pujas, mantras, and sutras for decades!!!!

The truth some of these jade have been made available to a small selected group of readers in the past. Either with exchange of energies of or as a gift.

But this time it will be made available to everybody.

However, please note that these are going to be on a first – come, first – served basis and are limited. Also, please note that not because you want it and has the means to send the monetary exchange of energies you will have it. Guru Lama will decide if you can have it base on your birthdate, this is especially true for the holy jade ingot and the holy jade teapot. For the others, Guru Lama will decide what you can have base on your birthdate or whether you’ll be allowed to have them.

To understand about the exchange of energies, please read the article called THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

Whose Karma Is It When A Person Dies Young?

Published Mayo 15, 2017 by jptan2012

When my nephew died, my initial reaction was to ask where did we go wrong. The pain and grief that I felt, that we felt, has temporarily blind-sided us to the fact that we already know. When a person is born, he or she has about 2 or 3 pre – destined date of death. Sometimes less, sometimes more. This means that when he was born this accident and death was already pre-destined and what amulets can do is to lessen the impact and move the date to the next date.

Using the above explanation it shows that when a person dies it is basically his/her karma to die at that time. If a person dies young it is basically his or her karma to die young.

The karma of the people around him, like his parents or grandparents, uncles and aunties, cousins, siblings, or wife or children is to go through the pain of the death. This kind of karma is something that is pre-determined. It is not because you did something really bad today that you experience that pain tomorrow.

I’m writing this because aside from the numerous emails of condolence and sympathy for my family and me and the parents of my nephew are emails questioning whose karma is it the nephew died young. Two emails even suggested that it was the people around him who did something wrong in this life, in this current life, that caused the death of my nephew.

I will understand those who are asking because they sincerely can’t understand why would a young boy passed away at such an early age. But those who are malicious and are asking it because they think that because I do Feng Shui and write about Buddhist amulets that I should not be experiencing these things, those are the ones who are quite difficult to understand.

Nevertheless, to answer the question ‘Whose karma is it that he died young?’ The answer is simple; it was his and his alone. It was his karma from one of his past lives. But what I know by being malicious about somebody else’s death, and then you are creating negative karma for yourself. Be worried about that and not about whose karma is it the person dies young.

Why Did Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Manila Closed?: A Feng Shui Analysis!

Published Mayo 5, 2017 by jptan2012

 

I was hesitant to write this piece because other Feng Shui practitioners were involved. However, I decided to write it anyway because I want my readers to be aware that Feng Shui is not limited to the inside of the house, you should be very conscious of what is outside the house also.

Yesterday or in my preceding post, I talked about how the statue of Lapu Lapu in Magellan Shrine might have caused the death of several incumbent mayors. Today, I would like to share with you why I think Mandarin Oriental closed down. It is very similar to what happened in the said incumbent mayors who all died in office.

As I said, I was first hesitant to write about this article, but I would like to make it clear, when I first noticed what I notice I did talked to two professional Feng Shui Consultants with close affinity to the said hotel. What am I talking about?

Obviously, if you talk to the owners or management of Mandarin Oriental, they would give you various reasons as to why they decided to close. In fact, the official statement is that the property is “no longer in keeping with its luxury hospitality offering.” Of course, that would be another way of saying that they are losing money because they are no longer able to serve their guests with the amount of service they are able to provide. If they have the money they could have renovated the hotel several floors at a time, this was done by Philippine Plaza, which is now Sofitel.

So what really caused the ‘downfall’ of Mandarin Oriental? I firmly believed that the putting of some heroic statues with active stance that is directed towards Mandarin Oriental was the cause of this bad luck or lowering of sales of Mandarin Oriental.

In my preceding post, I talked about how the image of Lapu Lapu in Magellan Shrine might have caused the successive deaths of successive incumbent mayors; it is the same manner that the said statues (see picture) might have caused the bad luck of Mandarin Oriental. Although one of the images shows that the sword is not directed at Mandarin Oriental, the direction of the call for attack is directed towards Mandarin Oriental. Furthermore, there is another statue of a warrior (not sure whether it is Lapu Lapu) who is looking at Mandarin Oriental. Both images are of heroes that are warrior, meaning they are aggressive images and this is the reason why I think Mandarin Oriental closed down.

As mentioned, when I first noticed this, I brought it to the attention of two professional Feng Shui consultant, but for some reason they both said the fan like image logo of the hotel will ‘fan’ away the negative energies brought about by the statues and that the figures are relatively small compared to the sturdy structure of the hotel. And at that time I also thought that their explanation is not only plausible but also valid. So like them I came to the conclusion that it will not have any effect or if does, the fan like logo of the hotel will ‘fan’ it away.

But in hindsight, there are several flaws in that belief.

First, the logo is a shell and not a fan, shells easily cracks so it won’t protect the hotel from the negative energies.

Second, and perhaps the more important reason, the images are of long time heroes, older than the hotel, and they are immortalized because of the statue, so it does carry a lot of energies, not only from the statue itself from the history that it carries with it that was transferred in the making of those images. It carries years, hundred of years, even thousands of years of energies that makes really strong. And so because no one was careful, everyone was lax, Mandarin Oriental is now no more.

The lesson here is that we should be careful with our surroundings because it does affect our Feng Shui and more than that, we should not be complacent about it.

I also wrote this article to demonstrate that even an institution like Mandarin Oriental can be affected by a poison arrow or a hostile energy. This shows that we have to be more vigilant with our surroundings. Note that these arrows is not limited to statues, but it can as simple as a pointed object or image from a neighbor’s house or any structures outside our house or office.

Never Put A Septic Tank On the Right Side of Your House!

Published Marso 30, 2017 by jptan2012

Regular readers of this blog would know by now that any water feature on the right side of the house or building is really bad, because the energy created by having any water feature on the right side of the house or building is to encourage disloyalty and betrayal. Whether is domestic, husband and wife, or professional, employer and employee relationship.

When we say water features we refer to anything that connotes water, be it fountain, a faucet, or even simply a pipe. This is also refers to whether it is something that we can see or not, like if it’s hidden under the floor or ground.

But one of the worst water features you can put on the right side of your house is a septic tank. This does not only hold water, but it holds dirty (very dirty) water. The effect will be much worse than disloyalty and betrayal. The main problem will be still disloyalty and betrayal, but it will be the worst kind of disloyalty or betrayal. It may even end up with violence or death cause by a crime or murder or homicide.

It may also cause loss of business because of internal problems, which will be most likely due to betrayal of trust.

The cure for this really depends on how big the septic tank is. But usually one needs a powerful amulet for this. Recently, a reader had to use 4 Vajrapani Ruels(1), has instructed by Guru Lama, only because the septic tank is quite big and more than that, when they excavated the ground for the septic tank they must accidentally unleashed and hurt some entities.

However, it is impolite to simply put the Vajrapani Ruel(2) on top of the septic tank, one will have to make a house, more like a pagoda or a dome shape stupa where one should place the Vajrapani Ruel(3).

Why It Is Better to Be Vegetarian or Vegan in Feng Shui?

Published Marso 24, 2017 by jptan2012

Vegetarian-Vegan-Diet-Heart-HealthThere are several religions that advocate for vegetarianism or even going completely vegan. This is because they believe that eating other forms of sentient beings is a sin because it harms other sentient being for humans to simply be able to satisfy their taste buds and stomach.

Is there any other reason not to eat meat and become Vegan or Vegetarian?

In Feng Shui, although it is not discussed much it is actually better to become vegetarian because plants do not carry sentient chi. You see, when a sentient being like animals or fishes are slaughtered for meat, they go through a tremendous amount of negative emotions, and yes, science has proven a long time ago that animals have emotions and can feel. While it is their karma to suffer that kind of death, it doesn’t mean that we should participate with it, and the truth is we human being when we eat, it means we encourage and participate the violent death of these animals. vegan-vs-vegetarian

Those negative emotions become negative chi and are retained in their meat, and when we eat them we definitely are ingesting a lot of negative chi also.

Christians may argue that it should be okay for them. Remember that the Ten Commandments say: THOU SHALL NOT KILL. It doesn’t say thou shall not kill another human being, it simply says thou shall not kill. It’s encompassing any forms of killing.

By eating meat, we encourage more killing and this create some negative karma for us, more than that, eating the actual meat that is believed to have retained the negative chi will also make us absorbed those negative chi. Remember energy is neither created nor destroyed, but it can be transferred.vegan-pyramid-web-big

Is The Double Wu Wang in the Northeast this November Fatal?

Published Nobyembre 3, 2016 by jptan2012

My article about the double #5 Flying Star (also called as Five Yellow Star or 5 – Yellow Star) or better known as Wu Wang this coming November was already posted as early as October 20, 2016, this is to give my readers enough time to prepare for the double Wu Wang whammy that will land on the Northeast. This means that everybody who is in the Northeast side of their house, office, room, or everybody whose house faces Northeast, or everybody whose house or office building faces the Northeast are greatly affected.

But more than that all people born in the year of the Ox or Tiger, or every middle born son, whether married or single, whether young or old, as long as you are middle born are affected.

The question now is whether it is fatal. I was bombarded with this question by a number of my readers because according to them Lillian Too on her website wrote that this star is fatal. I was looking for this reference but I was unable to see it, but I did see that she mentioned that one could get into a serious illness or serious accident.

Lillian Too is the world’s most famous Feng Shui expert and teacher. And obviously if she says something we should all take note of it and listen to what she has to say. Now the second question is do I agree that it can cause serious illness and accidents or as some readers asks whether it can be fatal.

To answer that allows me to explain it a little. Wu Wang or the Five Yellow Star or #5 Flying Star on it’s own is the most dreaded star. This star coupled with bad karma can be fatal, and so yes, it can be fatal.

When I first wrote the article, I didn’t want to cause some panic and was cautious to put in strong words, although I felt I already gave fair warning and had couldn’t stress enough how much caution all those who are affected has to take about this double whammy of Wu Wang(s) where the Monthly #5 Flying Star join forces with Annual #5 Flying Star on the Northeast.

I have written about the Wu Wang so many times already and every year I write about it that I will not go into details about it anymore. But needless to say, it is the most dreaded star that can cause so much misfortune. It can cause a lot of problems.

However, what I want to stress now is that yes it can be fatal, but fatal here may refer to not only death by illness or accidents but also fatal business wise or relationship wise. So everybody mentioned above should take extra precaution.

Furthermore, and it is important for all of you to take note of this, people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger, and middle sons (regardless whether you’re already 100 years old and lives in a different house already) who stays in the Northeast or whose house doors or office doors are in the Northeast are doubly affected. Why? Because the ruling sector of people born in the year of the Ox and Tiger, and middle sons is in the Northeast! This means you double the already doubled Wu Wang!

And wait, don’t forget that the ruling #2 Flying Star which is also known as the Illness Star, a star that causes not only illness but also grave accidents is doubled, and while everybody is affected, those who are already affected by the Wu Wang (those people mentioned above) are also more susceptible to this star because your overall energy is already weakened by the Wu Wang or 5 – Yellow Star.

Please read my earlier post – DOUBLE WU WANG WHAMMY FOR PEOPLE BORN IN THE YEAR OF THE OX AND TIGER THIS COMING NOVEMBER! – to understand more about it and also to ensure that you are familiar on how you can get protected.

Nevertheless, what I want to stress in this particular post, especially those who are doubly affected by the double Wu Wang whammy is that aside from protecting yourself with the cures I mentioned like the Vajrapani Ruel, gold Kalachakra pendant, gold Five Element pagoda pendant, 5 – Element Pagoda for the Northeast sectors, the Illness Suppression Amulet, the Traditional Sutra Amulet, AND YOU SHOULD ARM YOURSELF WITH THESE CURES, is that you wear more metal on your body. Wear more jewelries and for the month of November wear more white. But there’s one thing I would like to stress, this is also the time wherein you must have faith in the power of Sutras and Mantras, so recite some sutras and chant some mantras. If you’re a Christian then pray and believe in your God. Have faith! Having said that, you should go to church or temple more often. Go everyday if possible, genuinely and generously give more to those who are in need. These things should help protect you.

NOTE: Fire strengthens the Earth energy of the Wu Wang and Illness Star so avoid wearing very bright fire colors like red, violet, orange, and pink. So lighting candles inside the house or office is not also advisable, but lighting incense and candles in the temple or church is going to be helpful. In the same manner, yellow is an earth color so try to avoid this as well.
