The Power of a Prayer Wheel: A Personal Testimony

Published Disyembre 2, 2012 by jptan2012

1prayerhweel2If you are a regular reader of this blog, you’d know by now that I’m a great believer of the PRAYER WHEEL. In fact, I’ve written it a number of times, one of which is entitled – THE POWER OF A PRAYER WHEEL – and another time I shared about its power in a post entitled – A PERSONAL TESTIMONY: TAPPING INTO BUDDHISM, TAOISM, AND FENG SHUI FOR A POSITIVE OUTCOME OF A DELICATE SITUATION.

Today, I would like to once again tell you about a recent miraculous experience that I had about the powers of the Prayer Wheel.

I recently went to Cebu where we’re to have a big event. However, two days before the event we were told by the organizers that we haven’t been granted a permit by the mayor of Cebu City and Mandaue City. We need their permit because we are suppose to bike around both cities.

This created a lot of angry heads because all of us has been unintentionally misled that there’d be no problem in getting the permit. With two days before the event, and it being a Friday afternoon, our event is on a Sunday, everybody was hopeless and not very optimistic that we’ll still be able to get the permit.

Not pushing through with the event is going to be a big disgrace to all the companies involve because we’ve flown in some media from Manila to cover the event, invited all the media in Cebu also to cover the event, and most of all, the foreign principals of the companies involve flown in from their respective countries just to be at the event.

After some bickering and a number of threat to go to court, some of us has convinced the group to let cooler heads prevail and to discuss what we can do. The group agreed that there’s nothing else we can do except to go to the respective LGUs involve and ask for the permit. But then again we came to that decision because there’s really nothing else that we can do, but we also know that we’ve got nothing to lose in trying again. Nobody thought of verbalizing that it’s already a Friday afternoon (2pm).

It was decided that we’d separate ourselves into 2 groups. I together with one of my client will go to the office of the mayor of Cebu City, while my assistant and another group of client will go to the office of the mayor of Mandaue City.

I didn’t put up much hope that we’ll accomplish anything but as mentioned we’ve got nothing to lose. I’m just happy that I’m wearing my WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, which has the Victory Banner.

As mentioned in my previous posts, the VICTORY BANNER or BANNER OF VICTORY is a very good Feng Shui tool of Buddhist origin to help ensure that we will be successful in our endeavors.

However, I also note, that the VICTORY BANNER is not really the charm for getting luck in last minute situations like this. Nevertheless, I’m also fortunate enough to be wearing my PRAYER WHEEL pendant! Prayer Wheel Pendant

So while we were on our way to the office of the mayor of Cebu City, I kept on spinning my PRAYER WHEEL pendant, at the same alternately chanting the mantra(if you want to know more about mantras, do read my post entitled – Mantra: The Instrument to Tap the Power of Symbolic Sound, Script, and Thought) OM MANI PADME HUM and mentally stating the intent, which is to be able to get a permit. My clients were asking me what am I doing, whether I’m trying to invoke some miracle, and all I said is that yes I’m trying to invoke some miracle. They laugh a little but also said that they hope it works.

When we got to Cebu City Hall, we saw the mayor coming out of building. We felt compelled to approach him, thankfully he has very few security and they’re not very tight, and I was able to talk to introduce myself, tell him about our dilemma and that we desperately need a permit. He didn’t really ask for a lot of details but instructed a guy to call up the City Administrator to inform him that he the mayor has given the permit, all he they need to do is to prepare and expedite the paper works!!!

One down! My clients all said that the ‘magic’ seems to be working. We also decided that they will stay and wait for the permit and that I should join the other group who at that time was told that the mayor that they want to see is currently in a meeting and won’t be able to see them until early evening. Before I left, my clients jokingly told me to keep on spinning the pendant and create another magic.

On my way to Mandaue City, I decided to continuously spin my prayer wheel pendant and again I continuously chant the mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, which is OM MANI PADME HUM, and alternately mentally stating the intent.

When I got to Mandaue City Hall, I saw the other group still waiting to be escorted inside. At that time, there’s nothing else we can do but except to wait, and from time to time plead that we be allowed to see the mayor. After about 15 minutes after I got there, an elderly woman came out to ask us why do we need to see the mayor or the city administrator. My assistant explained the situation, and why do we need to have the event. She went inside again, telling us to wait while she checks out what she can do. Nobody went to see us again for the next 30 minutes and we were all losing hope, although, I still kept on spinning my prayer wheel. 45 minutes after the lady left us she came out with a piece of paper, and informed us that we have the permit!!!!

Needless to say everybody was happy! The event was very successful, and those who said hurtful things at the heat of the moment started apologizing. Those who were at the receiving end of the hurtful words accepted the apologies and there were two people who requested that I get them a prayer wheel and several of them asked me about the prayer wheel.

My prayer wheel pendant is from Nepal and has been with me for several years now. I’ve been thinking of replacing it for quite some time now because it is no longer in the best condition and the top has started to dislodge. Although, I must say that it is still very powerful and effective. However, on that same trip I went to Shangri-La Mactan, and while I was monkey-ing around with some friends at the beach side I lost balance got dipped in the water while still wearing my prayer wheel pendant. I guess that’s a clear sign that I should get a new prayer wheel…and I will because the Prayer Wheel is one of the most powerful Buddhist tools that can be use as a Feng Shui amulet, available to us!!!

A Feng Shui Gift of Protection for Your Mom on Mother’s Day!

Published Mayo 12, 2012 by jptan2012

Several of my readers emailed me to inquire as to what is the best Feng Shui gift to be given to a mother.

The truth is Feng Shui is personal and while there are some Feng Shui recommendations that can be ‘generally’ given, the real essence of Feng Shui is quite personal and one has to look at the Bazi of the person.

Our mom is the most precious gift we have and I believe the most valuable gift we can give our mom is the gift of protection. I personally am very thankful that I thought of giving a gift of protection to my mom, and I didn’t realize then that it is something that would save her life.

I have been practicing and studying Feng Shui then, when all of a sudden I thought of giving my mom a special protection Feng Shui charm or amulet. She was scheduled to go out-of-town with her sister and my cousin, and I thought I’ll give her something that she may use as a protection.

Two days after receiving the Feng Shui protection amulet, she fell ill. She had diarrhea, and high fever. It was so bad that we have to call a doctor friend to see her at home, on top of that she has to fed by my sister and was confined in her room for a complete bed rest. My sister who is also familiar with Feng Shui told me that I might have given my mom a wrong Feng Shui amulet. When I assured her that I’m sure that I gave her something that’s appropriate for my mom, she inquired then whether I did clean off the Feng Shui amulet of any negative chi that it might have acquired since the amulet was made of a crystal. I assured her that I cleansed of the amulet from any chi it has acquired.

We decided to let my mom take off the amulet. But since she was still ill, she wasn’t able to join my aunt and cousin. Little did we know then that the illness would save her from a terrible accident.

Without going into detail, my aunt and cousin had an accident. It was so bad that they were badly injured. My mom would have been in the same car if she didn’t get ill.

I would like to point out to points here. First, an amulet may work in a seemingly bad way, but in effect it is just preventing you from a bigger harm, and second, I believe that gift of protection saved my mom.

I still believe that that was the best gift I’ve ever given my mom.

So if you’re inclined to give a Feng Shui gift for your mom, why don’t it be a gift of protection.

There are several protection Feng Shui amulet or charm that you can give like Sun Wukong pendant, Kuan Kong pendant, etc. However, I believe the following are very good for mothers.

KUAN YIN PENDANT. Kuan Yin, for those who are not familiar,  is like the Virgin Mary of the Buddhist. But I need to stress that Kuan Yin is a Celestial Being although some people do believe that she came to earth in the form of Princess Miao Shan. Also, if we are to talk about Kuan Yin and the Virgin Mary as a concept, Kuan Yin is so much older then the Virgin Mary. In fact, some people believe that the concept of Virgin Mary was derived from that of Kuan Yin.

This is from my personal collection. The reason I love this pendants so much is because it has a inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. I wear the smaller one everyday.

I think all mothers should have a Kuan Yin pendant or an image of Kuan Yin because Kuan Yin for the Chinese Buddhist represents the most ideal trait of a mother – infinite compassion, specially to her ‘children’.

If you want to know more about Kuan Yin, please do read my previous posts – ‘KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEAR THE CRIES OF THE WORLD’; ‘UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN’; and ‘PAYING HOMAGE TO KUAN YIN, THE BUDDHA OF COMPASSION’.

THE SYMBOLIC SCRIPT OF AMITABHA BUDDHA’S MANTRA. Amitabha Buddha’s mantra which is OM AMI DEWA HRIH is one of the most powerful protection mantra. Wearing or carrying a symbolic script of the said mantra will continuously protect your mothers.

This is the symbolic script of the mantra of Amitabha Buddha, which is also a very good protection mantra. If you’re budget is tight, you can simply print this symbolic script, put in a red envelope and give it to your mom for her to carry everyday.

To know more about MANTRAS, please do read my previous post called – ‘MANTRA: THE INSTRUMENT TO TAP THE POWER OF THE SYMBOLIC SOUND, SCRIPT, AND THOUGHT’. 

GODDESS TARA PENDANT OR THE SYMBOLIC SCRIPT OF GODDESS TARA’S MANTRA. Goddess Tara is also called the Swift Liberator, just like our mothers, Goddess Tara is very quick to response to our plea. Goddess Tara is very good for mothers who has teenage kids and are starting to explore an ‘independent’ life by going out more often on their own. Every time a mother starts worrying about their kids who may still be out late in the evening, can call on Goddess Tara to ensure that their kids are kept safe.

To know more about Goddess Tara you can read the following posts – ‘GODDESS TARA, THE MOTHER OF SWIFT LIBERATION’ and ‘PAYING HOMAGE TO GODDESS TARA’.

This is a jade Goddess Tara pendant from my personal collection.

One other factor to ensure that your mom’s luck is kept intact and that she’s continuously protected through Feng Shui is to ensure that the Southwest section of your house should be ‘present’. Meaning, it should be habited and used, and that area do not function as a storage area. It’s also good to keep the Southwest section of the house well lit to help ensure that the mom of the house always has good chi.
