Understanding the Special Gold Piyao: Your Questions Answered!

Published Nobyembre 9, 2017 by jptan2012

Today, I will continue to answer a few of the most common questions sent to me via email, sms or through voice call. Yesterday, or the preceding post was about answering the questions regarding the forecast and how to be protected. In it I talked about the Special Gold Piyao, but there are a several of you asking more about the Special Gold Piyao, and wanting to avoid confusion I decided to write about it separately.

  1. What is a Piyao?

I initially thought that I have given a good introduction of what is a Piyao (also spelled or called as Pi Yao, Pixie, Pi Xie, Pixiu, Pi Xiu), but not wanting to bore you with a long post, I might have shortened it to the point that it is not clear what a Pi Yao is.

A Piyao or Pixiu is a celestial being or celestial animal. Celestial is described as (adjective) (1) pertaining to the sky or visible heaven, or the universe beyond the earth’s atmosphere; (2) pertaining to the spiritual or invisible heaven; (noun) (3) an inhabitant of heaven. Taking this description, it means that a Piyao is a being or animal of the heavens or simply put a Heavenly Being or Heavenly Animal. Some people will say that a Piyao or Pixie is the Chimera, but according to Guru Lama this is not so. A Piyao is a celestial being that reside in the heavens. I cannot go into detail about this, because it is a topic worthy of an entire post, but in Buddhism, heaven is a plane of existence. In Christianity or even Taoism, Heaven is the ultimate goal of destination; it is the highest level of existence. This is not the case in Buddhism; Heaven is a plane or existence higher than Earth but definitely lower than achieving Bodhisattva or even being a Buddha. Anyway, a Piyao is a Celestial Animal that provides protection and is said to be good wealth accumulator or collector. This Celestial Animal, the Piyao, is more prominent in Taoist scriptures, for it is said that it was the Jade Emperor (the highest god in Taoism, but is only a high heavenly being in Buddhism) that instructed the Piyao to eat only Gold and Silver or precious metals. While it enjoys a prominent relevance in Taoism, it is still definitely mentioned in some Sutra, especially those that can be more esoteric like the “The Surangama Sutra”. In fact, you can see a Piyao in most Taoist and Buddhist temples especially Pure Land Buddhist Temples.

 

  1. So what does a Piyao really do?

Allow me to enumerate some of the things that a Piyao can do.

  • A Piyao is a celestial being or celestial animal that has a big mouth but it has no anus. Which means it only eats but it doesn’t ‘throw’ away anything, thus making it a good wealth accumulator or collector. This is also especially good for people who seem to earn a lot of money but find it difficult to save money.
  • Some people think that a Piyao is a dragon or has a dragonhead. Again this is wrong, a Piyao is a Piyao and technically Piyao has a fierce face because in Buddhism and Taoism, fierce connotes protection and aggressiveness. In fact, most wealth Gods or even wealth Bodhisattvas has a fierce looking face. For example, the five Dzambhalas (also spelled as Dzambalas, Zambhala, Zambala, Jambhala, Jambala), Bodhisattva Vajrapani, to name a few.
  • Piyaos has sharp teeth. Because they symbolically and esoterically use these teeth to bite of demons, and or negative energies. I know of people who always wakes up at around 3 in the morning. After wearing Piyao they just slept thru the night,
  • In the texts that mentions the Piyao, it is also said that Piyaos are bringers of good health.
  • Furthermore, as mentioned they are good protectors. In fact, there are a lot of people who escapes accidents unscathed only to find out that their jade Piyaos have broken into two or more pieces.

 

  1. Is there only one kind of a Piyao?

A Piyao is a Piyao so technically speaking yes; there is only one kind. However, it is better to get a Piyao with an active stance rather than that of a relax one, because experience shows that this symbolic difference does have an effect on how your image of Piyao works for you. Different Taoist and Buddhist scriptures also talked about the different ‘permutations’ of a Piyao and how this represents different aspects of our life and how it affects it.

 

  1. Guru Lama designed the Special Gold Piyao, so did he invent it?

The Special Gold Piyao was designed by Guru Lama base on some old Buddhist texts, and so he did not invent it. However, he did incorporate two different designs and molded them into one Piyao. He did this after performing an oracle to see if this can be done.

 

  1. So why is it called Special Gold Piyao?

Again, technically speaking, it is a Piyao, but I decided to call it Special Gold Piyao, because it is indeed a specially designed. Although copycats who have the means will surely copy the design, like what they usually do with the Feng Shui charms or amulets of Lillian Too. Each and every aspect of the design was well thought off and is base on old Buddhist scriptures. In fact, the harness is not a common feature, but is something that was incorporated by Guru Lama. Also, I would like to clarify (although I have not written about this to avoid confusion and making the communication so cluttered) that there are actually two designs made by Guru Lama. One is that I have already featured, and the other one has a slight variation. Instead of only coins at the bottom of the Piyao, are magical words that connote protection, abundance, luck, health, etc. What design one gets will depend on what one needs.

Piyao2d2

Instead of only coins at the bottom of the Piyao, there are magical words that connote protection, abundance, luck, health, etc. What design one gets will depend on what one needs.So if you are a person who really need to attract money only or is in a bad financial situation, you will get the one with only the Heavenly Money Coin. However, if you already have abundance of wealth and needs only to safe guard it, or if you also need protection, and good health, and abundance in other aspect of your life, what you will get are those that have the magical inscriptions that will further bring all these aspects to your life. It is Guru Lama who determines this, thus we will request for your birthdate when you request for a Special Gold Piyao.

So if you are a person who really need to attract money only or is in a bad financial situation, you will get the one with only the Heavenly Money Coin. However, if you already have abundance of wealth and needs only to safe guard it, or if you also need protection, and good health, and abundance in other aspect of your life, what you will get are those that have the magical inscriptions that will further bring all these aspects to your life. It is Guru Lama who determines this, thus we will request for your birthdate when you request for a Special Gold Piyao.

Piyao2d3

Other than the magic inscriptions at the bottom both designs are basically the same. Please note that the photo of the Piyao is base on a close – up shot. The Piyao is less than an inch long.

Also, as mentioned in my previous post, Guru Lama designed these Piyaos as usual with a fierce face, however, he has also made in gentle or friendly, so it was quite a challenge to ensure that it comes out the way want it to be – FIERCE YET FRIENDLY. This is one very important factor that makes it unique and special. Because the energies of the year will be quite hostile in terms of moneymaking capacity, and even if were not hostile, you still want enough aggressiveness and power to be able to get that career or business goal and that wealth luck that you want, but at the same time you don’t want to appear very fierce that people will hate you and you will lose support or live/work in a unfriendly and hostile surrounding, thus it has to connote friendliness also for you to continue to have support and that no hostilities and envious eyes will be thrown against you. This is very important for Guru Lama that you don’t just get wealth luck or financial luck or money luck and feed on hostilities but that you get them in a friendly competitive and harmonious way.

You can read about the other features on my previous post.

  1. So it is the design that makes it Special?

At this point, I would like to clarify that the best Piyaos are those that are made of real jade and gold. This is base on the experience of Feng Shui experts, Taoist priests, and some Buddhist lamas.

But what makes this particular Piyao really special aside from the unique well thought off design that will address several concern, is that the metal use here is 24k pure gold coming from the ‘treasury’ of the temple. These are gold that were ‘donated’ to the temple as a way of an offering. These gold (which comes from either a jewelry or sometimes even miniature/small gold bars or gold coins such as those that can be bought in Dubai and China) are then placed in secured container and placed under the foot of an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva, usually images of Sakyamuni Buddha (Shakyamuni Buddha), Amitabha Buddha, Medicine Buddha, Dipankara Buddha (Dipamkara Buddha), Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva, Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa), Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (Kuan Shi Yin, Quan Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Chenrezig). They are placed there for years, and while they are there, when the High Lamas like Guru Lama or the Bhiksus or Bhiksunis perform a puja or chant a mantra or recite a sutra, they are blessed by it’s energies. And so the gold made into the Piyao are considered blessed gold.

I would like to add, these are same gold made images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, or for gold plating images.

 

  1. What if I’m not able to get the Special Gold Piyao does that mean I cannot have the protection and luck I need?

If you can’t get the Special Gold Piyao, which admittedly might be relatively expensive for some people (because again in exchange of the Piyao you need to make offering of images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and food for the monks, etc. as way of exchange of energy, aside from the labor cost in making the intricate design) you can always chant the mantras that I have written in my previous post. Or you can wear the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet. You can also ensure, regardless of your basket of elements in your Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart), to wear more metal. Any metal will do, but of course the yang energy of gold metal adds more chi to simply having metal in your body.

Furthermore, you can also get some Piyao. The design might be different but it should also work somehow. If you can’t a gold one you can get a jade Piyao and just wear more metal. But whatever you do, make sure you get one that in a active stance and not a relax stance, it might be a little more difficult to find but the small difference in the stance makes a lot of difference.

I hope I was able to answer your questions about the Special Gold Piyao. I initially was apprehensive to introduce the Special Gold Piyao to my readers because of the delay in the delivery of the last gold item that was released in this blog. I’m talking about the “Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant”. However, I was assured that there are several hundred pieces made already and so technically there is no waiting time. Furthermore, it is rarely that there is special piece with this well thought of ‘design’ that comes out, most Piyaos are that of a relax or resting stance. I personally have been looking for a gold Piyao with a very good design and in a active stance, but since I find it hard, I had to settle for some jade Piyaos, but even that was quite difficult to find, so I when I saw one I acquired several pieces for myself.

An Important Peek to the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog: Bleak Financial Forecast and Early Preparation is Key!

Published Nobyembre 6, 2017 by jptan2012

2018Regular readers of this blog will know that I don’t usually write my forecast until January, since lunar new years come in sometime late January or February or early March, but last year I wrote my forecast early because it was necessary, this year will be the same, I will write about the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog Forecast base on the Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart), Flying Stars Formula and 24 Mountain Star Formula quite early because 2018 is going to be a little quite challenging in term of money making or financial luck.

However, that forecast will be posted in the next few days, because I want to cross-reference my calculations and analysis with that of my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and Guru Lama.

But as discussed with Guru Lama that it is important that I give you a ‘peek’ already of one important factor for 2018 because it is important that we must prepare for it.

This year the Bazi Chart is extremely lacking of the metal element. By extremely lacking I mean it’s totally devoid of the said element, and as fate would have it, the metal element this year represents financial luck or wealth luck or money luck. So it is easy to conclude here that moneymaking capabilities doesn’t look hopeful. Financial aspects will be quite challenging.

This is not surprising since all Feng Shui experts or masters has predicted that the last part of 2017 Lunar Year which run between November to January will have a conflicting energy as shown by the 2017 Bazi Chart or Paht Chee Chart. Financial and Wealth luck is also going to be quite limited already, and this will continue to 2018 as the chart indicates we don’t have the metal element which for 2018 represents wealth luck or financial luck or money luck.

In the past two preceding posts I already have talked about this. But let me reiterate some part more clearly and also add the aspect of the 2018 Paht Chee Chart.

What this means?

This means that earning money might be a little harder, especially those who are in the business. Stocks will not do well as well, and as we can see here in the Philippines, there is already an indication of this since the government itself has announced that there was a 95% decline in foreign investments. The worst we ever had in recent history. To some extent we faired better during the Cory Aquino regime even though it was besieged by numerous coup attempt, because the decline in foreign investment then was not that high. With all humility a 95% decline is not a decline but rather it means foreign investments has become almost non – existent. No country can survive without foreign investments.

To put it into context or proper analogy so that it is easier to understand, it is like a family in a house that is trying to be self – sufficient. Kids will be thought at home, with things that are only found at home, no buying of books outside. The parents will try to earn money from home without outside buyers. Electricity and water are produced at home with no outside help. Food our simply from their own backyard without allowing rain or sunshine to come in to grow the plants, or poultry are raised without buying feeds. Is that possible? Totally possible? One may survive a few months but how can one survive totally being isolated?

Aside from the Philippines, this is already happening, albeit to a lesser degree in countries, namely Malaysia, USA, UK, etc.

Technically everybody is affected, because if business owners are affected employees are definitely affected as well.

Furthermore, you might find yourself put in a situation wherein you will lose money either by spending it or by ‘losing’ it either thru carelessness or bad business deal. This November to 2018, it is best not to lend somebody money.

If there is any consolation, even there is no metal element ergo wealth luck / financial luck / money luck on the bazi chart of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog, there is however a small sliver of hope that can be found in the hidden stems. Will discuss this further in the main forecast, but what does it mean for us.

It means those who are going into the 2018 Year of the Dog prepared will not suffer or experience this financial drought as much as other would. What preparedness means is being prepared both in practical manner or Feng Shui wise.

Practically speaking, it is best to ensure that your contracts are in place and that your client or business stakeholders won’t be able to rescind from it. This is what I did 2016 when my Feng Shui forecast is really bad; that before 2016 entered I made sure that my business will survive. Of course, this is not the only way to protect your business, if you have established good relationships with people, you will find people giving you leeway and or pushing you to help you maintain good business.

If you are an employee, and if you have been working hard and has been recognized your boss, you will find yourself having some kind of an edge over those who don’t work hard, or those who work hard but doesn’t make themselves recognized by the superiors.

Make sure also you review all business transactions carefully and that you study your investment thoroughly. It will also be good if you will spend your money wisely.

In Feng Shui it is important that you armed yourself with powerful wealth charms like the ingot or three – legged toad. Make sure these charms are made of gold.

3 legged toad pendant

Wearing a Three Legged Toad Pendant is considered very auspicious and it captures wealth for you.

Note: If you wish to read more about wealth enhancing charms or cures please read the post –FENG SHUI TIPS TO ENHANCE WEALTH LUCK, FINANCIAL LUCK, AND MONEY LUCK.

It is also important for all of us, regardless of our bazi chart to wear more gold this year, yellow gold is better because we will also need the yang energy it provides. Furthermore, you can wear powerful Buddhist amulets. The following are what I highly recommend:

  1. VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET is a powerful wealth amulet that I recently introduced on this blog. It is an amulet rediscovered by my Guru Lama about 20 years ago and has decided to make because he has foreseen this worldwide financial slump that is about to happen. Furthermore, this amulet is in a metal case, and we all need to have more metal in our body. You can read more about here by clicking on the link below at the end of the article.
  2. VAJRAPANI RUEL is another powerful amulet, perhaps the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, although, it is first and foremost a protective amulet rather than a wealth amulet. However, it should be noted that a lot of people who has the Vajrapani Ruel has experienced superb wealth miracle / financial miracle / money miracle. Some almost instantly and some gradually.
  3. WEAR AN IMAGE OF KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA or MAITREYA BUDDHA or MEDICINE BUDDHA made of gold.

Guru Lama is also releasing a SPECIAL GOLD PIYAO (also spelled as Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu, Pi Xie, Pixie). A Piyao is quite common, but as I always say it is best to get the one with an active stance and not the one lying down or relax stance, this is specially true for 2018 Year of the Earth Dog.

Piyao7

This is a special gold Piyao designed by Guru Lama and made of blessed gold.

A Piyao or Pixiu or Pi Xie is a celestial animal known for its protective qualities when facing the Tai Suey. This celestial animal that is part of the Three Celestial Guardian is a great ‘peace’ offering to the Tai Suey or Grand Duke Jupiter. However, more than just as an offering it is a very powerful wealth accumulator.

As mentioned, the Pi Yao or Pi Xie is a mystical creature that is particularly powerful and auspicious. It is said to have a voracious appetite that is infinite. The interesting part is that the Pi Yao does not have an anus, which means things only go in but never come out. On top of that, the Piyao as directed by the Jade Emperor (who is the highest God in Taoism but is a powerful heavenly being in the Buddhism) is only able to eat gold and silver. It is therefore a favorite must-have for businessmen and merchants who want money to come in and not spill out a dime. It is no wonder that Pi Yao can often be seen in banks, casinos, foreign exchange markets and finance companies in Oriental countries. I mentioned earlier that traditionally, a Piyao is not an animal meant to be worshipped, but, in countries like Thailand and Cambodia, people worship the Pi Yao and offer incense and flowers within business premises. Having said this, if your Piyao is made of natural crystal its okay to light an incense in front of your Piyao not to worship it but to cleanse it from a negative ‘energies’.

Regular readers of this blog knows that even if the bazi chart of the year doesn’t lack wealth luck, I still firmly believes in the power of the Pi Yao or Pi Xie or Pi Xiu. But on 2018 Year of the Earth Dog and the coming years, starting this last quarter of the 2017 lunar year, the Pi Yao plays an important role for everybody. It is one of the Holy Trinity for the year, the will ultimately play an important role for one’s security in wealth luck / financial luck / money luck.

People who personally know me might have seen the jade Pi Yao that I regularly wear on my wrist with my citrine bracelet. However, this year I will upgrade it to the Special Gold Piyao released by Guru Lama.

There are a lot of Piyao in the market, but what makes this special?

This is specially designed by Guru Lama so that it best represents and embody the wealth acquiring abilities and also fight the negative energies of the remaining lunar months of 2017 and also the lack of money making energies of 2018.

This limited Special Gold Piyao has 4 horns that represents the four cardinal directions – East, West, North, and South. This means that one will be able to take by the horn the challenges to gain financial luck. 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.  Furthermore, it is a ‘special harness’ so one can ‘harness’ it’s energy, this is something that is not found in any other Piyao’s or Pi Xie’s. On top of that they designed the said Pi Xie’s with 12 heavenly money coins to represent wealth luck for each of the 12 lunar months. The coins are found on it’s back and also at the bottom part of the image and on his legs, so this represents that it walks on money and is need not ‘search’ for it. On top of the 12 ‘big’ heavenly money coin, it also has another 5 heavenly money coin on each side of the it’s harness. This further represents that the ‘owner’ of the Pi Yao can harness wealth into his or her life. On each side of its hind legs is the symbol for protection. This represents protection from earthly dangers and envious eyes, and also harmony so that one doesn’t get into a rough, hostile situation is one’s quest to simply get more financial luck to provide for one’s family. Also incorporated is the symbol for longevity to constantly provide good health. Lastly, although quite small and not easily visible, the Piyao was designed to have strong sharp teeth, to represent its power to fight off demons and also negative energies that might cause bad luck. There are a lot of Piyaos especially those that are made out of jade or other stones, but this one is specially designed to confront the remaining negative 3 month of the lunar 2017, and the lack of wealth energies of the 2018 Year of the Earth Dog.

Piyao3

This limited Special Gold Piyao has 4 horns that represents the four cardinal directions – East, West, North, and South. This means that one will be able to take by the horn the challenges to gain financial luck.

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.

Piyao8

On top of that they designed the said Pi Xie’s with 12 heavenly money coins to represent wealth luck for each of the 12 lunar months. The coins are found on it’s back and also at the bottom part of the image and on his legs, so this represents that it walks on money and is need not ‘search’ for it.

Piyao4

On top of the 12 ‘big’ heavenly money coin, it also has another 5 heavenly money coin on each side of the it’s harness. This further represents that the ‘owner’ of the Pi Yao can harness wealth into his or her life. On each side of its hind legs is the symbol for protection. This represents protection from earthly dangers and envious eyes, and also harmony so that one doesn’t get into a rough, hostile situation is one’s quest to simply get more financial luck to provide for one’s family. Also incorporated is the symbol for longevity to constantly provide good health

But on top of that, the gold used in making the said Piyao are gold from the offering of the Sangha members to the temple.

Buddhist would offer money, food, flowers, oil, incense to an image, but a lot of them especially those are in grave situations will also offer gems and gold. It can be a gold necklace, gold bracelet, gold rings, or gold earrings, but it is not surprising to see even real miniature or small gold bars or gold coins. These gold offerings are recorded for proper auditing and then put in a special container under the foot of either the image of Sakyamuni Buddha (Sakyamuni Buddha), Medicine Buddha, Amitabha Buddha, Dipankara Buddha (Dipamkara Buddha), Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also spelled as Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Quan Yin, Quan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Chenrezig), Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva / Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa) or Vajrapani Bodhisattva. They are just there for years, and whenever the Bhiksu (Monks) or Bhiksuni (Buddhist nuns) with the higher lamas chant mantras or recite sutras or perform pujas, the said jewelries or gold offerings are blessed as well. Then once in a while they open one of these containers to melt the gold to make an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or makes gold flakes out of it so that when we invite an amulets, they can ‘sell’ these gold to make said images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or make images under our name. This becomes a way for them to raise funds to make more images or temple or food for the monks especially the student monks and also for their food.

So you see, because they stay under an image for years, and they get the power from the chanting of mantras, reciting of sutras, or pujas from the Bhiksus, Bhiksunis or the high lamas like Guru Lama, these gold items becomes really blessed. And this is what Guru Lama has used to make the said Special Gold Piyaos.

But simply wearing a Piyao or the Special Gold Piyao is not enough. You need to ensure that the element that produces metal is constantly present in your life as well. Thus the Special Gold Piyao is strung along with some crystals. However, this is where it becomes personalized because the crystal or semi – precious stone while largely earth element that will harness the growth of metal, should also be dependent on the element that best represents your own wealth luck. So for some it will be citrine, some will be amethyst (like me), some may have jade or aventurine, some may have clear quartz or a moonstone, and some may have lapis lazuli or tourmaline or onyx.

As mentioned the Special Gold Piyao will play an important role and is one of the Holy Trinity must have amulets of the year. However, having this Special Gold Piyao for the rest of your life will also prove to be a powerful tool to continue to harness wealth luck / financial luck / money luck and also serves a great protection charm. Furthermore, if you find yourself confronted by Tai Suey or the Grand Duke Jupiter, it also serves as great ‘offering’.

But aside from the above mentioned charms and amulets. It will also be good if one can chant everyday under deep meditation a full mala of the mantras of King Vaisravana and the Five Dzambhalas (also spelled as Dzambala, Jambala, Jambhala, Zambhala, Zambala).

The Ten Realms of Existence in Buddhism (1): The First Six Lower Realms

Published Nobyembre 8, 2016 by jptan2012

When I wrote the post entitled – IS THERE A FENG SHUI RELEVANCE TO ALL SOULS DAY – I know that this is really the time for me to write about the topic that I have always wanted to write but has withheld from writing it because I’m not sure whether my readers are ready for it and also if it is the right time.

However, in hindsight this is something that I should have written before I even wrote and posted about the article about the Feng Shui relevance of All Souls Day. But having said that, I still believe that everything works and happened on its right time. And maybe it is really meant for me to write this now.

For Christians, when you die you either go to hell or heaven, maybe purgatory. And there you stay forever, that’s the only rebirth you experience. But in Buddhism, it is said that one goes thru reincarnation or rebirth, and there are different realms that you go to, the first six realms which are considered as the lower realm you go through that several times.

What are these SIX LOWER REALMS?

  1. HELL. To put it plainly this is a realm very similar to what Christians believe in. This is where you undergo punishment for your sins. If I’m not mistaken, in the Bible, hell is described as a lake of fire. In Buddhism, the lake of fire is just one part of hell. There are many different stages and parts of a hell. But needless to say in all those parts you go through retribution by a lot of suffering from your offenses in your other lives.
  2. HUNGRY GHOST. This is somewhat akin to hell, only the difference is that some Hungry Ghost still has the capacity to live amongst humans. You undergo suffering and retribution in this realm by feeling that you have a physical body but are unable to touch physical things. One of these things is food. Technically speaking, Hungry Ghosts may be nice or temperamental. They retain characteristics of human in terms of temperament and personality.
  3. ANIMAL. Simply put you are born as an animal, which is seen as a lesser being because of several attachments and inability to fully discern right and wrong. And most animals have a short life span and also are less fortunate than humans.
  4. HUMAN. This is us. If you are human, it is considered that you have enough good karma for you to be born as one. Because humans have the power to right things and learn new things and learn about the dharma (Buddha’s Teachings). But take note that we are still in the lower realm, and we are not in the highest in the lower realm.
  5. ASURA. Asura’ are unseen being that are better off than humans, they still need to learn things and they have their own realm of existence. They can see us, but we cannot see us. It is said that you are born as an Asura if as a human you are very generous but tends to have foul mouth and a bad temper. I guess one example of this is to take the story of Robinhood. Somebody like will be born as an Asura because he did a lot of good things but at the same time he stole things.
  6. HEAVENLY BEINGS. There are so many stages in Heavenly Beings that I will discuss in the future. But as a heavenly being one has some kind of supernatural power, but one has no physical body. A Heavenly Being lives in a place much like what the Bible described. However, as a heavenly being they still need to learn more about the Dharma. Some of the gods and deities of Taoism are considered as Heavenly Beings in Buddhism. In the lowest realm of Heavenly Beings are the Demons, who guard the lower realms like hell. And heavenly beings can be reborn as an Asura or Human or Animal, but their life span is much longer than that of human. Heavenly beings can help protect those in the lower realms like humans. In fact, in the Sutras a lot of the Lord and Yakshas and ‘Demons’ have committed to protect the people who read and carry or own the Medicine Sutra, Diamond Sutra, Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra, and the Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Everybody in the lower realm undergoes rebirth. One can go up to Heavenly Beings or go down to Hell depending on one’s karma. As long as we don’t achieve Samadhi we will continue to be born in one of these realms.

We only stop samsara (cycle of rebirth) once we have attained Samadhi. And we enter the 4 higher realms. I will discuss that on my next post.

Myth Buster 40: The Ashes of a Black Cat Will Enable You to See & Fight Demons!

Published Mayo 18, 2016 by jptan2012

black catIt’s been quite some time since I wrote about an article under the MYTH BUSTER category. But today, allow me share a pervasive myth amongst the local of Siquijor (a province in the Philippines known for witchcraft and stories of Manananggal or local vampires). In a trip to Siquijor a few months back, some people told me that I will never see a pure black cat in Siquijor because the albularyos (local shamans) hunts the black cat, kill them, then burn it and use the ash in looking for demons and fighting them. I was quite surprised and told my guide to hook me up with an albularyo who practices this because I would surely love to understand more about this practice.

Some of my friends who are with me warned me not to talk to the albularyos because I might get hexed or bewitched. I was pretty confident that it wouldn’t happen because I have my Kalachakra Pendant and more importantly I have my Vajrapani Ruel and Surangama Mantra Amulet.

I was lucky enough to meet two elderly albularyos who absolutely forbid me to take their photo because they believe that their soul might be captured by the camera or photo (I will discuss this in succeeding posts). Anyway, they told me that this is a known way to best see and fight a demon, but it is a practice that is quite difficult to do. At the end, they said that they have tried it, however, they don’t know the actual ritual thus are unable to do it.

I got really curious about this practice and decided to do more research about it. I found out that ancient Hebrews also believes in this practice. Now the question is there truth to this?

The variables present as was shared with me are they only need of the ashes of black cat and some prayer. If I’m going to base it on this alone, I think this is more of a myth. Why? Because an ash has no chi. It is literally without energy thus it can be used into a spiritual object or amulet. In fact, Buddhist prefers to be cremated because in that case they won’t have to worry as to where to put the ash. Once a person has been cremated, one will not need to worry about the Feng Shui of the burial site because the ashes have no chi.

The Surangama Mantra Amulet: Beyond Being An Effective Protection Against the Hungry Ghost Month!

Published Agosto 10, 2015 by jptan2012

hungry ghostAs soon as July stepped in a lot of people have been asking about what’s in store for the Hungry Ghost Month 2015 and the Hungry Ghost Festival 2015. Well, the good news is unlike last year where in the effects of the Hungry Ghost month was heightened, and further complicated by the Mercury Retrograde, this year’s Hungry Ghost month is as usual. But by usual I don’t mean we can all relax and forget all the essential things that we need to do during the Hungry Ghost month. It simply means it’s not worse than other Hungry Ghost months but it is still bad.

For this year, Hungry Ghost month starts on August 14 and ends on September 12. The main Hungry Ghost festival is on August 28. The whole Hungry Ghost month is critical time but the day of the Hungry Ghost festival is the worst of all the 30 days of the Hungry Ghost month.

In the past, the main Hungry Ghost protection that I recommended is the Chung Kwei pendant. This is what most Feng Shui experts will recommend. I remember having discussed this with a reader that I hope to find another cure, and my Guru Lama has said that the Kalachakra is also very good cure, and more recently since it has been made available the Vajrapani Ruel should be an astounding cure against the ill effects of the Hungry Ghost month.

The Vajrapani Ruel looks simple, maybe even rustic, but this simple amulet is packed with a special talisman paper inside, with various ingredients, which includes Namtso Salt, soil, various herbs and plants, crystal, and a relic from a high lama. It's important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless.

It’s important to put the ruel inside a amulet holder or something sturdy as to not ruin it. If the cloth had tear which exposes or spill the ingredients inside, the ruel becomes useless.

In my preceding post entitled – SURANGAMA MANTRA: THE POWERFUL AND EFFECTIVE WAY OF GAINING ACCESS TO HEAVEN’S POWER! – I also talked about the Surangama Mantra or the Surangama Mantra Amulet (Surangama is also spelled as Shurangama). If you’ve read the post, you will know that the astounding qualities of this Shurangama Mantra or the Shurangama Mantra Amulet, this is naturally one of the most effective protection against the ill effects of the Hungry Ghost month. The Pure Land Buddhist monk who shared with me the Surangama Mantra Amulets confirmed this. As mentioned by Venerable Master Hsuan Hua chanting or wearing the amulet will make all demons and hungry ghost run 10 miles away. Obviously, the 10 miles is just a figure of speech to indicate how far away they are and that get near us.

My readers has been complaining the difficulty in getting a Chung Kwei (also spelled as Chong Kwei, Chung Kui, Chung Kwei) specially something that is made of a real obsidian or any real black stone and not fake and made of glass. Although, I still have a few pieces left with me, when I tried to look for authentic Chung Kwei pendant, I found out that it is indeed quite difficult to get one now. And so I was really happy that the Vajrapani Ruel and the Surangama Mantra Amulets are now both available because they are also very good and equally effective, if not more effective Hungry Ghost month cures.

Surangama MantraPlease note that while simply having a Surangama Mantra Amulet will make you receive blessings, for one to get it’s full potential and for one to use it as an effective protective cure against the Hungry Ghosts and the ill effects of the Hungry Ghost Month, it has to be properly blessed by a high ranking Pure Land Buddhist monk only because it is presumed that a high ranking Pure Land Buddhist Monk has more experienced and higher level of divinity. When properly blessed by a high ranking Pure Land Buddhist monk, the Surangama Mantra Amulet when worn around the neck will also enable the Heavenly Beings that has affinity with you to constantly surround you.

Surangama Mantra: The Powerful and Effective Way of Gaining Access to Heaven’s Power!

Published Agosto 9, 2015 by jptan2012

This is a long post. A very long post at that. But also very important.

I should have written this post for quite some time now, but there are several things that prevented me from doing it. The first one is whether I’m adequate enough to write about the Surangama Mantra, which is also spelled as Shurangama, because the Surangama or Shurangama mantra is considered to be the king of all mantras not because it is the longest and considered as one of the most powerful mantras, but it is also the hardest to understand. In fact, chanting the Surangama Mantra or wearing the properly consecrated Surangama Mantra amulet is considered to be a powerful and effective way of gaining access to heaven’s power. It is said that one creates a direct link with the heavenly beings that has an affinity with us. Thus, it was not surprising that Venerable Master Hsuan Hua, one of the most famous and leading Pure Land Buddhist masters called his lecture about the Shurangama Mantra as the mantra that is “The Efficacious Language of Heaven and Earth”.

Another reason for delaying the writing about the Surangama Mantra and the Surangama Mantra amulet is because I know once I have written it I would be receiving several emails requesting for a legitimate and properly consecrated Surangama Mantra Amulet, and I was unable to do this before.Surangama Mantra

Lastly, the least of the three reasons is that I was mildly concern that if and when I write about the Surangama Mantra and Shurangama Manta Amulet, my detractors will start attacking it again. I’m no saint, I have done a lot of bad things, but with all humility I thought I don’t want my writing to be the cause of their bad luck and for this to create more negative energies on them. A few people badmouthed the VAJRAPANI RUEL, and I’m sure they would be doing the same thing again with the Shurangama Mantra and Surangama Mantra Amulet. My point is when you slander a Buddha, a Bodhisattva, a Deity, a Dharma teaching or Dharma instrument this will create bad luck and tremendous amount of negative energies to the people who slandered it, and while I’m not the one slandering it, by writing it and causing them to slander it just because I was the one who wrote it I will indirectly cause them to have bad luck. But, I would like to clarify that this is limited to the people who are malicious and malicious in their attacks. I truly believe that people who are not malicious in their attacks and are sincere in raising a concern and as long as they don’t slander the amulets are exempted from this.

But why am I writing this now?

That is because if I wait for myself to feel adequate about it, then it will never happen because I will never be adequate to write about the Surangama Mantra, because in reality nobody is adequate to write about it. Do I have enough knowledge about it for me to write about it since one of my prerequisite is for me to have stock knowledge first before I write some thing. Well, I have enough stock knowledge about it that when supplemented with a further on – phone lecture with a Pure Land Buddhist monk and some research and review of my books, I can say that I’m confident enough to write about. In the history of this blog, I think this is the only third time I’m writing about something that I have to do further research on, one is about the Ghost Month – Mercury Retrograde dilemma last year, then the other one is when I wrote about the Vajrapani Ruel. Much of the details I wrote in the post “The World’s Most Powerful Amulet in the Buddhist Pantheon’ and the very first “Vajrapani Ruel Stories” were told to me by my Guru Lama.

Second, the Pure Land Buddhist monk who I consulted with this post provided me with several Surangama Mantra Amulet. Lastly, I cannot stop writing just because I have made some mistakes in the past which I’m trying to correct now, and stop writing it will be open to attack by a few people as compared to the many who may believe this writing and benefit from it or to the few who may have not believe it but sincerely consider and think about it.

So what is the Surangama Mantra and the Surangama Mantra Amulet? (Again this can be spelled as Shurangama Mantra and Shurangama Mantra Amulet.)

For me to explain it properly, you will notice that I have lifted a lot of passages from the teaching of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua whose lecture can be found online and also published by Malaysia Dharma Realm Buddhist Association and Prajna Kuan Yin Sagely Monastery.Surangama Mantra2

But before anything else I would like to explain the benefits of chanting the Surangama Mantra or wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet. It is said that when one chants the Surangama Mantra all the heavenly beings that has an karmic affinity with the person chanting it will stop moving and simply listen to the person chanting it, when this happened, it creates a lot of merits for the person chanting because a lot of the good heavenly beings energies is directed to the chanter of the mantra. When one wears the Surangama Mantra Amulet, which is also known as the Shurangama Mantra Amulet one is surrounded by the Heavenly Beings that has a karmic affinity with the person who is wearing it. When this happens, no hungry ghost, no negative energies can attack the person because this person is constantly protected. Furthermore, one will also develop a positive outlook in life and it will create a lot of good luck for the person. One will find one’ aura getting lighter and more positive, so some people use it as a love charm, although I would like to strongly advice against as primarily using it as a love charm. These are just some of the very simple benefits of chanting the Surangama Mantra or wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet. As we go one you will see more of the things that wearing a Surangama Mantra Amulet can bring to a person.

But I think it is best to understand why Buddha created the Surangama Mantra.

According to the Venerable Master Hsuan Hua:

The Shurangama Sutra was spoken for the sake of the Shurangama Mantra. There’s no way to ever finish expressing the importance of the Shurangama Sutra and the Shurangama Mantra; to the ends of all time their merits, virtues, and wonderful functions could never be told–so absolutely inconceivable and ineffable are they!

So that is where I like to start. Buddha has a disciple called Ananda. Ananda is the Buddha’s cousin, who is also a royal prince, and later on became a disciple and personal attendant of the Buddha.

Ananda is said to be very handsome and one day while he was out to beg for food (something that they do every morning), he came across a prostitute’s house. Ananda had second thoughts but thinking about Buddha’s teaching that one must not discriminate he knock on the door to ask for food. The prostitute upon seeing Ananda fell in love with Ananda, and concocted a plan to entice him right there and then. Ananda, being a disciplined and devout monk didn’t fell for the prostitute’s evil plan. So the prostitute decided to ask for her mother’s help who is said to be very good in practicing black magic. Armed with some potion and magical incantation, the prostitute waited for Ananda the following day, Ananda wanted to avoid the prostitute but she called on him and told him that she wants to make an offering to Ananda. As a monk and disciple of Buddha, Ananda has a strict vow that he cannot refuse any offering even if it has a poison. Ananda approached her, and she gave him something to drink and immediately Ananda fell under her spell, she then start to lead Ananda to her room.

Buddha being enlightened knows what’s happening and immediately send a monk to go and pick up Ananda. He also gave this particular monk a mantra, which he is to use to protect himself from the black magic of the prostitute’s mother and for him to break the spell of which Ananda is under.

This monk went to the house, and use the spell. He found Ananda still under trance and about to break his vow of celibacy or no sexual misconduct. He used the mantra and brought Ananda out of the spell.

Usually Buddha will say a sutra first and within the sutra one can find a mantra, but for the Surangama Sutra and the Surangama Mantra, it was the mantra that came first and the sutra came after.

According to Venerable Hsuan Hua:

The word “Shurangama” translates as “Ultimately firm and strong.”

The entire title of the Shurangama Mantra is “Great White Canopy of Light Dharani Mantra” (mo he sa dan tuo bo da la tuo lo ni zhou). It is also called “Brilliant Buddha’s Crown, Great White Canopy of Light, Unsurpassed Spiritual Mantra.” The Buddha’s Crown refers to the transformation Buddha atop the Buddha’s crown. There is no way to conceive the subtle wonder of the mantra. The content of the Shurangama Mantra subdues heavenly demons and controls externalists. Every line, from beginning to end, is the Buddhas’ mind-ground Dharma-door.

Each line has its own function; each possesses its own esoteric wonder; and each is endowed with incredible power. The recitation of a single word, a single line, a single assembly, or the recitation of the entire mantra causes the heavens to vibrate and the earth to tremble; it’s said that heaven and earth are shocked, the ghosts and spirits wail, the demons keep a wide distance, and mountain and river sprites hide away.

This shows that the Surangama Mantra and the Surangama Mantra Amulet are very good protection against demons. You will notice that Venerable Master Hsuan Hua used the term Heavenly Demons. I’m sure that most people will find this weird, how can heaven have demons. This will take another post to fully clarify this but for now allow me to say that in Buddhism there are different levels of Heaven. And the lowest level of heaven is where some demons stay. This means they have supernatural power but they have evil thoughts. Earlier, I said that when one chants the Surangama Mantra or wears the Surangama Mantra Amulet, all the Heavenly Beings that has an affinity with the chanter or the wearer will surround the chanter or wearer, obviously, I refer to the Heavenly Beings that are good. That is like our angels, although angels are used here as a reference only and to describe these heavenly beings, because in Buddhism there are no angels. And I would like to clarify that in this post whenever the term Heavenly Being is always used to refer to the ‘angel’s’ and not to the Heavenly Demons that Venerable Master Hsuan Hua mentioned.

Chanting the Surangama Mantra or wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet will also erase all karmic obstacles. This was also validated by Venerable Master Hsuan Hua:

then you can get rid of your karmic obstacles from last life and all past lives. That’s the incredible function of the Shurangama Mantra!

If one can chant the Surangama Mantra one will be able to emit this celestial light from the mouth, furthermore chanting or wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet will also have us emit celestial lights from our body and mind. These celestial lights are lights that can only be seen by highly powerful psychic people and by demons and heavenly beings. Because of this light, neither hungry ghost nor demons can get near us.

This means that Surangama Mantra or the Surangama Mantra Amulet is one of the most powerful amulet one can use during the Hungry Ghost month and also for those whose job involves working in Yin places like hospitals, cemetery, funeral parlor, or if you go to one of these places. It is also a very powerful protection for those who travel a lot and for those who work at night.

Again, I would like to support this claim by quoting a passage from Venerable Hsuan Hua’s lecture.

The Venerable Ji is a well-known High Master in Buddhism. His expert use of this passage of the mantra to subdue heavenly demons and control externalists was extremely efficacious. And so the last line says: Dharma Master Ji, the Venerable, mastered these wonderful sounds. This passage of the mantra instructs us to “take refuge with all the Buddhas, all the Bodhisattvas, all the Hearers and Condition-Enlightened Ones, and all the gods throughout empty space and the Dharma Realm.” It’s a passage that protects the Triple Jewel, and so when you recite it the demons flee and the ghosts don’t stop running until they’re ten miles away. Not just ten miles, they back off until there’s no more room to retreat. They don’t dare make trouble; they are forced to behave themselves.

That’s a general description of what this passage of mantra is about; the details are even more wonderful.

Of course, the ten miles here is used as a figurative of speech to show that demons and ghost will not dare come near us.

But more than that, because of chanting the Surangama Mantra or wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet, as mentioned earlier, powerful Heavenly Beings that has an affinity with the chanter or wearer, what will also develop a very positive aura, will surround one and thus one will have a competitive advantage in business and other endeavors.

Talking about the Surangama Mantra or the Surangama Mantra Amulet is a very big task and I really don’t want to run the risk of writing something that may be misunderstood, so allow me to simply copy here for you essential portions of the lecture of Venerable Master Hsuan Hua. But before that allow me to share a few more things.

The Surangama Mantra is more powerful when chanted, and is also powerful when worn as amulet. If you can do both, it is obvious that one can magnify its effect. However, in choosing a Surangama Mantra Amulet it is highly advisable to wear something that is blessed by a Mahayana Buddhist monk, specifically Pure Land Buddhist monks and preferably a high ranking one because this usually means that this particular monk has a higher level of experience and divinity. . It is only when this is done that the Surangama Mantra Amulet becomes truly powerful.

Please note that when wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet, you are surrounded by Heavenly Beings, so when engaging in intimate physical activity with your spouse or partner, it is better to keep the Surangama Mantra inside a pouch (preferably red or yellow) and properly set aside.

But just how powerful is the Surangama Mantra? To answer that allows me to post here a story shared by Venerable Master Hsuan Hua. Please note that Patriarch Hongren was able to gather such manifestation of the power of the Surangama Mantra because he himself is a holy person.

In the past, Great Master Hongren, the Fifth Patriarch, was cultivating in Hubei at East Mountain. He upheld the precepts strictly and cultivated with unusual intensity. Once when a group of bandits surrounded the city of Hubei, Great Mater Hongren could bear it no longer and decided to try to save the people in that city.

He came down the mountain and walked into that city. As soon as the bandits saw Great Master Hongren coming, they were terrified, dropped their armor and weapons, and fled. Why? Because although Great Master Hongren came alone into the city, the bandits saw an army of heavenly generals and heavenly troops clad in golden armour. It was as if the gods themselves had come down to earth–all donning golden armour and carrying jeweled swords and other awesome weapons. That’s what caused the bandits to retreat in such haste.

And so, without the use of a single knife, spear, or arrow, he routed the bandits. It was because Great Master Hongren recited the Shurangama Mantra that the bandits found him to be so terrifying. You could say that was a manifestation created by the Vajra Treasury Bodhisattvas or you could say it was the awesome virtue of Great Master Hongren that frightened them. That a cultivator was able to frighten the bandits into retreat without the use of a single soldier or weapon is verification of his genuine skill. How else could there have been such a response in the Way?

Shakyamuni Buddha proclaimed the Shurangama Mantra in order to protect of all of us who have brought forth the initial resolve to study the Way; to aid us in attaining samadhi; to help us be at peace in body and mind; and to keep us out of trouble. Therefore we should never forget this Dharma. We should recite and uphold the Shurangama Mantra with single-minded sincerity. By doing so we are helping to perpetuate the Buddhadharma, to keep the Proper Dharma long in the world.

Now allow me to share with you some excerpts from the lecture of Venerable Hsuan Hua. Mind you, this is quite long even though I’m not putting it here in its entirety.

Unendingly miraculous and mysterious, it’s extremely hard to fathom. The Shurangama Mantra is quite esoteric and its changes and transformations are inexplicable; it’s not easy to figure out. This vajra secret language wells forth from your own nature. The Shurangama Mantra is the secret within the secret. That’s the vajras who come to protect the mantra. Your own nature–it is born from your own Buddha nature. Inside the Shurangama Mantra is marvelous magic! The Shurangama Mantra is called an efficacious language because of its spellbinding power. That’s what “marvelous magic” is referring to.

Then come five eyes and six penetrations and the Way opens up. If you can continually uphold the Shurangama Mantra–single-mindedly without entertaining other thoughts–then you can attain the Five Eyes and Six Spiritual Penetrations. You will then experience the inconceivable, unfathomable changes and transformations that occur which ordinary people are totally unaware of. And that’s the reason why I hope everyone will learn to read the Shurangama Mantra and memorize it.

Why is it that the demons, ghosts, and goblins don’t dare show themselves when you recite the Shurangama Mantra? It’s so powerful that there isn’t a place in all of space or the entirety of the Dharma Realm that isn’t flooded with auspicious light. Recitation of the Shurangama Mantra patches up the imperfections in the heavens and the earth. One person reciting the Shurangama Mantra creates power equivalent to one person. A hundred people reciting create power equivalent to a hundred people. And the weird beings here in this world become very well-behaved. So it’s better if more people recite.

It’s an unsurpassed spiritual mantra. The negating prefix “un-” actually means “lofty to the utmost; brilliant to the extreme.” Peerless radiant illumination piercing the heights is the meaning of “un-“. And “surpassed”? Well, there’s nothing more esteemed, nothing more venerated. “Spiritual” is what is inconceivable and ineffable, what is awe-inspiring, efficacious and unfathomable. The power of mantras brings a response with the Way. When you recite mantras, something happens. “Brilliant Buddha’s Crown, Great White Canopy of Light, Unsurpassed Spiritual Mantra.” This means that the light at the crown of the Buddha’s head is like a great white canopy that comes to shelter and protect all of us who recite the mantra.

No one understands this mantra, nor can they explain line-by-line and word-by-word. But if you want to understand it, I can try my best to explain it to you. The Shurangama Mantra can’t be explained in a year’s time, or three years’ time, or even ten years’ time. Now I will explain the general intent of this mantra. This mantra is composed of five assemblies, which represent the five directions of east, west, south, north, and center.

The east is the vajra division with Akshobhya Buddha as the teaching host. The south is the welling up of jewels division with Welling Up of Jewels Buddha as the teaching host. The center is the Buddha division with Shakyamuni Buddha as the teaching host. The west is the lotus division with Amitabha Buddha as the teaching host. The north is the karma division with Accomplishment Buddha as the teaching host.

Altogether these five divisions watch over the five demonic armies that abide in this world. Because of these five demons, the Buddhas split up in five directions to repress these demons. Without the Buddhas, these demons would show themselves here in our world. And so, when you recite the Shurangama Mantra, the five demonic armies in the five directions submit and surrender. They behave themselves and don’t dare try to oppose the power of the Shurangama Mantra. The five divisions in the mantra are what make it so fine. But you shouldn’t be attached. Your becoming attached won’t be so fine.

Within the five assemblies of the Shurangama Mantra are more than thirty sections of Dharmas. Before, when I was in Manchuria, the reason I was able to cure people’s illnesses was all because of the power of the Shurangama Mantra. But the Shurangama Mantra cannot be used casually. If used, it’s not the entire thing that’s used, because within it are, in general, more than thirty different Dharmas. If looked at in detail there are over a hundred.

As to these Dharmas, there’s the Dharma of Accomplishment. That means by reciting the Shurangama Mantra, whatever method you are practicing will be perfected; whatever thing you want to do will get done. There’s also the Dharma of Increasing Benefits. That means, for example, if you don’t have enough resolve for the Way in your practice, by reciting the mantra you can increase your wisdom; increase your Bodhi mind; increase the power of your vows; everything will get better. When you recite the mantra, everything you hope increases will surely do so! It will increase for others, too.

The Dharma of Quelling Disasters means that if a calamity is due, reciting the mantra will make it disappear. The disaster will be quelled. Suppose someone is due to drown in the ocean. Reciting the mantra can change the situation so that he doesn’t get drowned. Or you’re on a boat that’s supposed to sink. Recitation of the mantra can keep the boat from sinking. Or the airplane is supposed to crash, but you are reciting the mantra and so it doesn’t.

Nonetheless, you have to take responsibility for dispelling the calamities in your own mind. What calamities are there in your mind? Well, if you merely rely on the mantra, but inside you are a bundle of false and malevolent thoughts, scattered and impure thoughts, lustful thoughts, then you certainly haven’t expelled the calamities in your own mind. In that case, no mantra is going to work. And so if you want to avoid disasters you must first purify your own mind.

The purity of your mind is what really dispels calamities. If you are full of greed, hatred, and stupidity, no mantra is going to be efficacious. Our frame of mind is extremely important. We must be kindhearted and filled with goodness, wishing to help others. Our mind should be wholesome.

The Dharma for Hooking and Summoning is for use when you meet up with heavenly demons and externalists and want to catch them. Just as law enforcement officers catch criminals, so too, the Hooking and Summoning Dharma catches weird creatures, demons, and ghosts. They do something here to harm others or do some bad thing that causes people to get sick and then they run away. But you want to catch them and so you recite the mantra, using the Hooking and Summoning Dharma. Well, no matter how far away from you they are, the Dharma-protecting good spirits, or members of the eightfold division, or some of the eighty-four thousand Vajra Treasury Bodhisattvas will immediately snatch them and bring those demonic beings back.

Even then, sometimes they won’t give in and you have to use all kinds of expedients to teach and transform them. If you use brute force to subdue them, then that’s the lowest grade of dharma, it’s not a good method. The best methods don’t use any sort of power plays to oppress beings. Don’t oppress them and don’t contend with them. Don’t be like an asura–tough and looking for a fight. Even when you clearly have the power to do so, don’t use the dharmas to subdue them. You should use virtuous conduct to influence beings and then teach and transform them.

And finally, there is the Dharma of Subduing. Demons have spiritual penetrations and they also have mantras. You recite your mantra and they recite theirs. But when you use the Shurangama Mantra, you break through all their mantras and subdue them. You use the power to quell them and make them behave.

I’ve told you all before that the Shurangama Mantra has within it a few lines of mantra that rends the nets of demons. Why was the mantra from the Brahma Heavens rendered useless? It was because of the Five Great Hearts Mantra. The Five Great Hearts Mantra destroys the mantras underlying the demons’ and externalists’ spells and incantations. It doesn’t matter what mantra they use, when you recite these lines, their spells are smashed and their mantras become ineffectual.

Furthermore, the Dharma of Auspiciousness enables things to go your way when you recite the mantra. Good fortune prevails. Now I’ve given you an explanation of these Dharmas.

I could talk for several years and never finish describing the good points of this mantra. All Buddhas of the ten directions come forth from the Shurangama Mantra. The Shurangama Mantra is the mother of all Buddhas. It was by means of the Shurangama Mantra that all Buddhas perfected Unsurpassed Proper and Pervasive Enlightened Knowledge.

The ability of the Buddhas of the ten directions to create response bodies and go throughout the ten directions turning the Dharma wheel to teach and transform living beings; to rub the crowns of those beings and bestow predictions upon them; to rescue beings from their complex sufferings; to enable beings to escape both large disasters and small calamities–their ability to do all that comes from the power of the Shurangama Mantra Heart.

If you want to attain the fruition of Arhatship, you absolutely must recite this mantra to keep demonic things from happening. During the Dharma-ending Age if people can memorize the Shurangama Mantra or encourage others to memorize it, well, fire cannot burn such people and water cannot drown them. No matter how potent a poison, it cannot harm them. For those who recite the Shurangama Mantra, poison turns to sweet dew as soon as it enters their mouths. People who recite the Shurangama Mantra will never get born in bad places, even if they want to. Why is that so? It’s because the Shurangama Mantra pulls you back and won’t allow you to go.

Someone who recites the Shurangama Mantra may never have amassed any blessings or virtue, but, simply because he recites the mantra, the Thus Come Ones of the ten directions will bestow their own merit and virtue upon that person. Wouldn’t you call that a bargain? That happens based on the recitation of the Mantra alone. If you recite the Shurangama Mantra, you will continually get to be born at a time when a Buddha is in the world and will be able to immerse yourself in cultivation under that Buddha’s guidance.

If your mind is terribly scattered so that you can’t concentrate and don’t have any samadhi-power, but you think about the Shurangama Mantra and recite it with your lips, the Vajra Treasury King Bodhisattvas will very attentively watch for ways to invisibly help you gradually until your confusion has disappeared and you develop samadhi. They will imperceptibly help you open your wisdom and concentrate your mind to the point that you become crystal clear about all the events spanning the previous eighty-four thousand Ganges’ sands of eons.

If you can learn the Shurangama Mantra until you have memorized it fluently–so that you become one with the mantra–then you attain the mantra’s samadhi and your recitation will be like flowing water, welling up uninterrupted. If you can do that, then at the very least for seven lives to come you will be as wealthy as America’s richest oil magnates. And you say, “That’s great! I’m going to learn the mantra right away! I wouldn’t mind being a magnate of some kind!” Well, if you are that selfish, then don’t even bother learning the mantra. Seven lives pass in the blink of an eye anyway.

What should those who learn the Shurangama Mantra be hoping for? You should hope for ultimate Buddhahood; hope to attain the Unsurpassed Proper and Equal Right Enlightenment. Don’t be so petty! Actually those who are really dedicated in reciting the Shurangama Mantra are transformation bodies of Buddhas. Not just any transformation bodies, but those atop the Buddha’s crown–transformation bodies of that transformation body! And so you see that the wonderful aspects of the Shurangama Mantra are difficult to express, difficult to conceptualize.

Wherever someone is seriously reciting the Shurangama Mantra, a great white canopy will be there in the space above him. If your skill in reciting the mantra is high-level and far-reaching, then when you recite, the canopy will extend for thousands of miles, preventing any disasters or difficulties. If you only have a little skill, then the canopy will be right above your own head protecting you. If you have virtue in the Way, if you are a High Sanghan, then when you recite, the entire nation will be benefitted and no calamities will occur. Or if disasters are unavoidable, big ones will turn into little ones, and the little ones won’t even happen.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a nationwide famine, plague, war, or plunder, all those kinds of disasters will be alleviated. Suppose you were to write out the Shurangama spiritual mantra and place it at the main entrances to the city, or in its watchtowers or other lookout places; suppose you could inspire the nation’s inhabitants to show interest in the Shurangama Mantra, so that they bow to and revere it and single-mindedly make offerings to it as if they were offering to the Buddhas themselves; suppose you could get every single citizen to wear the mantra on their person or to keep it in their place of residence; well, if you could do that, all disasters would disappear.

Whenever the Shurangama Mantra can be found in a place, the gods and dragons are delighted, and so that place will be free from devastating storms; the crops will produce in abundance; and the populace will be peaceful and happy. That is why I say that the merit and virtue of the Shurangama Mantra is inexpressible; it can’t be reckoned in the mind; it can’t be cognized in our thoughts. That’s the wonder of it!

Basically broken precepts cannot be mended. But if you recite the Shurangama Mantra, you can return to purity. But when I say recite, I don’t mean you can just do it casually. You have to attain the mantra-recitation samadhi. The recitation of the mantra must flow forth from your mind and the mantra must flow back into your mind. That’s called “the mantra is the mind and the mind is the mantra.” Your mind and the mantra become united. There isn’t any distinction. It reaches the point where you couldn’t forget it if you wanted to. That’s called even when not reciting, the recitation continues; when reciting there really isn’t any recitation. You recite until there aren’t any idle thoughts remaining. The only function of the mind is the recitation of the Shurangama Mantra. That’s called meshing with the mind. There are no second thoughts. The flow of the mantra’s recitation is like water that flows on in uninterrupted waves.

At that point, everything expresses the Mahayana–the sounds of the breezes blowing and the water flowing are all the Shurangama Mantra’s Heart Mantra. If you can reach that level, then if you have broken precepts, you will be able to return to pure precepts. You will be endowed with the precepts without going through the formal transmission. If you are someone who doesn’t want to progress in your practice, who doesn’t want to investigate the Buddhadharma, but you recite the Shurangama Mantra for a period of time, quite naturally you will be inspired to be vigorous; those who lack wisdom can open their wisdom.

If you are not pure in your cultivation so that you break your vegetarian practices and violate the precepts, but you have not forgotten the Shurangama Mantra, you will be able to quickly return to purity. If you violated precepts before you began upholding the mantra and prior to receiving the precepts, then once you start reciting the mantra you can completely wipe out all those former offenses, no matter how serious they were, including even the Four Parajikas, the Five Rebellious Acts, the Four or Eight Offenses warranting dismissal from the Sangha, which are basically unpardonable. Not even a hair’s breadth of an offense will remain. And so I say that the power of the Shurangama Mantra is beyond all conception or description!

Every line of the Shurangama Mantra contains infinite meanings as well as infinite functions. You should realize that the Shurangama Mantra is the most efficacious language in the world–the efficacious within the efficacious, the esoteric within the esoteric! It is an unsurpassed Dharma Treasure–the gem that can save living beings’ lives. It embraces all that exists.

From the Buddhas of the ten directions to the Avichi Hell, all the four kinds of sages and six sorts of common realms pay homage to the Shurangama Mantra. None of the ten Dharma realms transcends its scope. All categories of ghosts, spirits, Dharma-protecting deities, Hearers, Condition-enlightened Ones, up to the Buddha Vehicle are contained within the Shurangama Mantra. The Shurangama Mantra contains the names of ghost and spirit kings. When the names of those leaders are recited, all the ghosts and spirits in their retinues become very obedient and behave themselves. They don’t dare to make trouble.

Reciting the Shurangama Mantra every day can cause demonic beings and weird ghosts throughout the world to settle down and stop harming people. The substance and function of the Shurangama Mantra are all-encompassing. It can be said that within the mantra can be found the entirety of Buddhism’s teachings and meaning. If you can understand the Shurangama Mantra, then you have understood the essence of Buddhism’s esoteric teachings.

The Shurangama Mantra is extremely efficacious, but it is not that easy to master. First of all you cannot be selfish; next you cannot be out to get your own private gains. You have to be magnanimous and devoid of selfish thoughts. You have to be impartial and not prejudiced. You have to be willing to sacrifice yourself for the sake of others. You have to have the resolve to universally save all living beings. If you can embody the above-listed qualities, then you will have swift success. Pay close attention: you must hold the five precepts and practice the ten good deeds. That’s the very least you should do.

When you are developing your skill in reciting the Shurangama Mantra, you may dream of yourself bowing to the Buddhas; or in a dream see the Buddhas emitting light; or dream that you see the Buddha come as rub the crown of your head; or dream that the Buddhas speak Dharma for you; or dream that you see the Bodhisattvas, or Condition-enlightened Ones, or Hearers, or Sagely Sanghans or gods and heavenly generals; or in a dream see yourself ascending into space; or dream that you can fly. All of these are good experiences.

 Or you may be riding a horse or crossing a river and encounter all sorts of auspicious lights; or there may be other extremely rare appearances that manifest. If you do attain responses such as these, then you should be very careful. You should bring forth the resolve for Bodhi; guard the purity of the karma created by your body, mouth, and mind; and increase your efforts and tighten your skill in reciting the mantra.

You should not tell others what kinds of responses you’ve had in order to get others to believe in you or to think highly of you. It’s enough for you yourself to know what responses you’ve had. If you keep advertising your own merits and selling your cultivation out on the streets, then you are wrong. If you act like that, you leave yourself open and the demons will attack. That’s like failing to put your jewels in a safebox. If you leave them at the doorway, then someone is certainly going to steal them.

The Fascinating Story of Chung Kwei, The Ultimate Catcher and Vanquisher of Hugnry Ghosts, Demons and Evil Spirits

Published Hulyo 21, 2012 by jptan2012

In the past few posts, I talked about ‘THE DREADED HUNGRY GHOST MONTH’, and ‘THE EFFECTS OF THE DREADED HUNGRY GHOST MONTH’, of course; I also posted about ‘THE RITUALS TO APPEASE AND PROTECT ONESELF FROM HUNGRY GHOSTS’, and the ‘PRECAUTIONS TO TAKE DURING THE HUNGRY GHOST MONTH’.

But if there’s one thing that can totally ensure your safety and protect you from the harms of the hungry ghosts and any ghosts especially during the hungry ghost month, that would be Chung Kwei (also spelled as Chong Kwei, Chung Kui, Chong Kui, Zhong Kwei, Zhong Kui, Zhung Kwei, and Zhung Kui).

Chung Kwei is the ultimate catcher and vanquisher of not only hungry ghosts but also of evil spirits and demons!

But who is Chung Kwei?

Chung Kwei (in Foo Kien) or Zhong Kui (as pronounced in Mandarin) 鍾馗 is a historical figure but unfortunately is largely considered as a mythological figure by westerners because of the lack of historical data about him.

Chung Kwei was born during the Tang Dynasty at Zhongnan Mountain in Shensi Province. According to legend, Chung Kwei is actually the fourth son, however, all of his older brother died at a very young age. Because of the old age of Chung Kwei’s mother and the number of times she has given birth, she didn’t conceive for a very long time. Knowing that the absence of a son has caused great sadness to her husband, she encouraged him to get a concubine, something that is totally acceptable during that time. However, because he loves his wife so much, getting a concubine was out of the question for him.

It is said that out of desperation, he went to consult a famous powerful sorcerer that is rumored to be a demon. His wife was against his decision but he persisted and won over his wife’s protest.

Soon after visiting the sorcerer, his wife conceived again, but at about the same time they notice that a big black scary mountain panther was visiting them. They knew that this is a sign from the devil. Because of this Chung Kwei’s mom asked the help of a brother to go and visit a Kuan Yin temple to pray for them. The brother traveled for a month to visit this temple, and on his way back, he brought with him an image of Kuan Yin. Her brother gave this to her and told her that the Buddhist monk in the Kuan Yin temple did a divination and told her that she’s conceiving a child that is part demon. The only way to save the baby is if she and her husband will earnestly ask for Kuan Yin’s help and make sure that they dedicate the baby’s life to public service, which at that time is really servicing the emperor.

The husband realizing his folly earnestly prayed to Kuan Yin, and they would offer incense, recite mantras and sutras, write sutras for Kuan Yin every single day until the time she went into labor.

While giving birth to Chung Kwei, she went into trance and saw Kuan Yin riding on a Piyao, vanquishing the big black scary mountain panther. She knew then that her baby is going to be saved.

Chung Kwei was born as an ugly boy. It is said that he has a face of a black panther. However, no matter how ugly he is, he is a very nice and kindhearted boy. The only thing that he seem to have gotten from the big black scary mountain panther is the color of the skin, the looks, his size (because he is also a big boy) and the bravery, but other than that he seems to be a boy with a very unusual kindness.

Chung Kwei or Zhong Kui is also a very intelligent boy. His father hired the best tutor for him, but both his parents always ensure that he has a devotion to both Buddhism and Taoism and they instilled in him the importance of being in service to the public/emperor.

As a man, he has integrity, talented and profoundly learned. There was just one problem; the people who don’t know him ridicule him because of his looks.

Because of his intelligence and because he is a learned person, he was able to pass the exam to be of service to his emperor. This was in the time of Emperor Kao Tzu. However, because of his looks the judgmental and corrupt officials, in particular a treacherous minister name Lu Qi, refuse him entry to the imperial court.

Out of desperation to be of service to the public and to the emperor, Chung Kwei decided to commit suicide at the imperial entrance, not because he was depressed but because he believes that if he cannot be of service to the sovereign as a human, he’ll be of service to the emperor/sovereign in spirit. He committed suicide because he wants to fulfill his mortal wish to be of service to any reigning sovereign, which is equal to serving the public.

However, since he was a mere mortal at that time and has not achieved special skills in Taoism his spirit was captured by a Taoist priest so that he can be put to rest by sending the spirit to heaven through various prayers. That’s the last time they have heard of Chung Kwei.

If you have read my post entitled – GETTING TO KNOW ‘THE GREAT SAGE, EQUAL OF HEAVEN’, THE MONKEY GOD SUN WUKONG – you may remember the story of the Buddhist Monk Xuan Zang who went to get for the emperor some sutras and Buddhist texts in India for China. It is because of that journey or expedition that led to Sun Wukong’s Buddhahood. The emperor who tasked Xuan Zong to get the religious texts in India is Emperor Ming Huang (AD 712 – 742).

Anyway, Emperor Ming Huang during his reign, which was years after the suicide of Chung Kwei, succumbed to an illness that he has to be confined in his room. Even after consulting top doctors, he remained to be ill, worst, he soon started to get delusional and would always complain that he is unable get sleep in the evening because of unwanted supernatural visitors, which according to historical texts were described by Emperor Ming Huang as little devils. Thing soon got worse because they would hear his voice shouting out of fear and anger, and they thought that he was getting mad.

His top ministers then decided that they should see Emperor Ming Huang themselves so that they can decide whether they should appoint an interim ruler while Emperor Ming Huang’s son is not yet of age. This proved to be a fortunate matter for Emperor Ming Huang because his top ministers also saw the ‘little devils’ and they now know that he is not mad and is actually telling the truth.

They all decided to call some Taoist priest and Buddhist monks to exorcise the ‘little devils’. However, for quite sometime nothing worked. Out of desperation, one of the top minister called all palace guards and staff to offer the best vegetarian food and fruits to the Jade Emperor and Kuan Yin, for them to help exorcise the palace.

What follows is the most controversial, of what is already a controversial story, because it is said that this part came directly from Chung Kwei who conveyed it through a spirit medium.

The Jade Emperor having received the offerings and the ‘hu’ (a Taoist prayer tool), decided to intervene with the matter by sending another immortal to vanquish the little devils. However, Kuan Yin knowing of Chung Kwei’s desire to be of service to the sovereign, and also knowing about Chung Kwei’s fate (Chung Kwei at that time was in ‘heaven’ waiting samsara) decided to request the Jade Emperor to grant Chung Kwei special power so that Chung Kwei can be a deity and vanquish the little devil and be of service to the sovereign.

The Jade Emperor agreed to Kuan Yin’s suggestion, however, he clarified that while he can grant special deity power to Chung Kwei, the true test of Chung Kwei as a deity lies on his bravery, and good heart when he was still a mortal. Kuan Yin knowing of Chung Kwei’s character assured the Jade Emperor that Chung Kwei will succeed.

Meanwhile, Emperor Ming Huang is still being bothered by the ‘little devils’, and things has gotten worst because now the whole palace is affected by the ‘little devils’. The emperor is seriously considering relocating the palace, but for some reason the manifestations of the ‘little devils’ seemed to have simply and suddenly stop. Taking caution not to be optimistic about the sudden silence of the ‘little devils’, Emperor Ming Huang and the ministers decided to wait for a few days before they conclude that the haunting has stopped. Furthermore, Emperor Ming Huang was also miraculously cured of his illness.

When it was confirmed by everybody that the haunting has stopped, Emperor Ming Huang asked the imperial guardian deity (by praying to his image) to reveal to him as to who vanquished the ‘little devils’. That same evening, Emperor Ming Huang dreamt of a scary creature who look like a demon himself visited the palace, captured the little devils and vanquished them by devouring them.

Still in his dream, Emperor Ming Huang approached the vanquisher and asked for his name. Chung Kwei then introduced himself and told Emperor Ming Huang his story.

When he woke up, Emperor Ming Huang instructed his ministers for more information about Chung Kwei. He then was told of what happened to Chung Kwei, which is basically a confirmation of what was told to him by Chung Kwei through a dream.

Emperor Ming Huang then commissioned Tzu Wu Tao (also spelled as Tzu Wu Dao), a then well known and one of the most celebrated artists of his time, to paint Chung Kwei. Also through Emperor Ming Huang’s intervention and persistence, Chung Kwei was canonized by Taoists priest with the title – GREAT SPIRITUAL DEMON VANQUISHER!

Soon, Taoist priests would call on Chung Kwei to help them vanquish or exorcise a person or a place. They would also found out that a blessed image of Chung Kwei acts as an extension of Chung Kwei’s power.

So to this day, Chung Kwei remains to be the most powerful deity to protect us from any evil spirits, especially during hungry ghost month!
