The Amulet From Within: A Story About How The Vajrapani Ruel Failed to Work and How Forgiveness Did!

Published Oktubre 12, 2015 by jptan2012

Given that there are a lot of testimonials about the Vajrapani Ruel, it is certainly living up to its reputation as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon.

However, today I would like to share with you a simple story wherein the Vajrapani Ruel didn’t worked and was over powered by something else.

KA is young man in his 20s, his father was a famous actor before, while his mom used to a model. His mother and father never got married and he has other siblings from both his mother and father.

KA grew up with his grandmother and with his aunt, his mother’s elder sister who never married, who treated him like her own son. KA admits that although they all tried, he simply can’t get along with his mother and his father. He said that both are bad parents who are not capable of rearing their own child.

KA got to know about my blog through his aunt who happens to be the reader of my blog. She convinced KA to try the Vajrapani Ruel because he has been ill and doctors seem unable to find the real problem. While spending so much money for different diagnosis, he also gets weaker and weaker and thinner and thinner. According to KA the Vajrapani Ruel helped a little, but for months he continues to be ill. His parents were concerned and wanted to see him but KA denied them that right because he said whenever they’re in the same room they always end up fighting.

When the Vajrapani Ruel didn’t really work for KA, his aunt and grandmother became desperate and went to consult fortune teller and “albularyos” (Filipino shamans) and they told him that there is an evil spirit out to get KA and that this evil spirit is so strong that they might not be able to stop it.

Despite the absence of a conclusive diagnosis and the absence of the confirmation of the doctors that KA is going to die, his aunt and grandmother decided that KA’s father and mother should talk to him even if KA doesn’t want to see them. And it was the catalyst that will make KA better.

His parents thinking that KA might soon die, not only because of what his aunt and grandmother told them, but also because of how he looks, decided to pour their hearts out to him. They decided to say everything that needed to be said and KA said what he always wanted to say, their were blaming but it all end up in forgiveness, and just like that KA started to get better in the next few days. Soon he was back to his old self.Forgive

All that he needs is learn to forgive. KA said that his relationship is still a work in progress in the sense he is trying to get to know his parents and his siblings from both parents but it is a new chapter. He is now enjoying his “big” family!

KA’s aunts believes that it is really the Vajrapani Ruel working its magic because the miracle for her is that both KA’s mother and father wanted to see him at the same time as soon as KA got the Vajrapani Ruel, and this is a miracle because they’ve always avoided being together, but KA didn’t see that, instead he was only seeing the miracle of being cured of his physical illness not realizing the illness is not physical at all.

What KA’s aunt says may be true, but for me, it only shows that sometimes the most powerful amulets are from within us!

Sneeze! God Bless You!

Published Agosto 23, 2015 by jptan2012

sneezingPeople, especially those in the Christian world, has the habit of saying “God bless you!” when somebody sneezed.

Well, how did this start? There are three theories about this. One is that in the olden times, people believe that when one sneeze your heart stops for a fraction of a second, thus when one a person sneezes, people will say “God bless you!” to signify that you survived a temporary death.

Another belief is that a sneeze is helps dispels evil spirits. So when one sneeze, people will say, “God bless you!” to help constantly dispel the evil spirit.

The last belief, and the one I really personally believe that started this “tradition” is during the 6th Century, there was great pestilence that happened in Italy at that time. This pestilence naturally caused a lot of illness and death. One of the initial symptoms of the said pestilence is a cold, which is usually preceded by sneezing. Pope Gregory the Great who was the pope at that time instructed the public to say a prayer for those who sneeze to help stop the disease. He further instructed that the prayer be preceded by a “God bless you!” to the one who sneezed.

People might have forgotten the origin but a custom, albeit a shallow one, even though one doesn’t really understand it, is hard to break.
