One of My Feng Shui Forecast for this Year of the Fire Rooster Just Happened. What Can We Do About It?

Published Pebrero 21, 2017 by jptan2012

Every year I write a forecast that is base on the year’s Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart coupled with the 24 Mountain Stars Formula and the Flying Star Formula. This year was no exception, and regular readers of this blog or those who have read my forecast knows that last December 2016 when I posted the first of the three articles of the annual forecast, I mentioned that the peso would continue to weaken against the dollar. I specifically mentioned that there is a very strong possibility that we will hit Php 50.00 against the US$. And last weekend, that’s what just happened. Today, Feb. 20, 2017 it hit Php 50.24, which is the highest in 10 years!

I think it will hit up to Php 52.00 to Php 54.00 (although it might fluctuate a little) before it normalizes or become more stable. Some of you might say that this is temporary, or we don’t feel the effect anyway. Well, we don’t really feel it yet, maybe because we are middle class or upper class, but some people especially in the lower income bracket are already feeling it, and we should all the feel effects in the next few weeks. I haven’t done the chart for next year, but this is not temporary, at least not for this year.

Why am I writing this?

Modesty aside as some readers has pointed out my batting average for my forecasts are quite high. The very forecast that I wrote about that actually come to fruition is about the Yolanda Calamity in Leyte. To this day, I’m quite positive that I’m the only Feng Shui writer who wrote about it pre – calamity and specifically mentioned that it will happened in Visayas and that a shortage of food might happened because of the said calamity. It was followed with the forecast of unnatural hot climate, which also happened. Then I also talked about the earthquake in Nepal, which also happened. For last year, I wrote about the possible financial instability that may happen mid – year to end of the year, and unfortunately this also happened, because the Philippine peso started to get weaker against the dollar since towards the middle of the year.

I’m enumerating these things not to pat my own shoulder and say well done with the forecast, but rather I need to establish that there is a certain level of accuracy that I hit. And I think I’m also the only Feng Shui writer who has said that we might hit Php 50.00 against the US$ in the first quarter. And so far, I hit that also. What I’m driving at is it is better to be ready for a possible calamity, which is will likely be man – made towards the end of the 3rd quarter or at the start of 4th quarter. For those who have a weak financial luck or wealth luck or money luck this year would be very well to get ready and save up for the ‘winter’ to keep you ‘warm’.

You can chant the following mantras everyday for this year (108X each):

OM MANI PADME HUM

OM VAJRAPANI HUM

OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM

OM DZAMBHALA DZALIN DRAYE SOHA

OM PADMO KRODA ARYA DZAMBHALA HRIH DAYA HUM PHAT

Furthermore, it is very good if you carry with you a powerful amulet like the Vajrapani Ruel(1), and for everybody it would be nice to wear citrine and an image of Earth Store Bodhisattva (Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) pendant made of gold.

Chant – A – Mantra (10): Earth Store Bodhisattva’s Mantra for Eliminating Predicament Karma!

Published Pebrero 20, 2017 by jptan2012

Sometimes we find ourselves suffering from hardships with unknown causes. Sometimes, no matter how hard we work, money luck / wealth luck / financial luck seems to be quite elusive.

There are people who are beautiful, really nice, are kind hearted and good but real love seems to elude them.

Sometimes we all of a sudden find ourselves in a big mess without us understanding what really happened. Feng Shui of our house and office seems to be just fine but all of a sudden we are hit with a certain bad luck.

There are people who for some reason are just chased after by bad things.

This is because a little more than half of the unexplainable things that happens to us is caused by karma. These are the things that effect of the things that we did earlier in our lives and in our past lives and this is what we are paying for now.

If you are born blind, deaf, or if you were born in a bad family, bad place, or in poor family or poor country, that is karma.

We cannot escape karma, but sometimes we eliminate it or lessen it’s effect by reciting sutras, or by wearing some powerful amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel or the Surangama Mantra Amulet or chanting some mantras.

A lot of you are already familiar with some of the Karma cleansing mantras that I have shared in the past on this blog.

Today, allow me to share with you another mantra for eliminating predicament karma. And it is the very powerful eliminating predicament karma of Bodhisattva Earth Store or Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha.

Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s Mantra for Eliminating Predicament Karma is as follows:

AN BO LO MO LING TUO NING SUO PO HE

As you can see it’s very simple and it would be easy for you to memorize it. Chant it 3x a day for 108x each time. And you will soon see that things will start to get better for you because you are slowly eradicating or eliminating your predicament karma.

Feng Shui and Buddhist Love Spells and Love Rituals!

Published Pebrero 14, 2017 by jptan2012

I don’t know whether you have notice this but I don’t really write a lot about Feng Shui love rituals or Feng Shui love spells for that matter. The longest article I have written about the topic was written several years back, and quite surprisingly it is constantly one of the most read article of this blog.

However, since a lot of you have been sending me emails or messages asking questions about how to attract love or on how to reignite the flame of love, this is especially true for those who are already married.

Today, allow me to share with you some of the said rituals that have worked for some readers and acquaintances or friends. Thought of writing these now because it is the month of love and February 14 is Valentine’s Day!

I will avoid writing about those things that I have written in the past, but will instead focus on those that I have never talked about on this blog before.

FENG SHUI CANDLE LOVE RITUAL TO BRING LOVE INTO YOUR LIFE OR BRING BACK A LOST LOVE:

You will need four white votive candles, one pink votive candle, and one red votive candle. Preferably they should all be of the same size.

Do this ritual in a private place where you can have a small pool or a tub or Jacuzzi. If the tub or Jacuzzi is in the same room as the toilet, make sure to do a thorough physical and auric cleaning first by scrubbing the whole bath and toilet with salt water.

Place all the white votive candle on the side of the pool or a tub or Jacuzzi. Follow the compass directions East, West, North, and South. Light them starting from the East, followed by South, then West, then North. Position yourself on the center of the tub or small pool or Jacuzzi then light or as a trusted friend to light the pink and red candle first. Have a small container to hold them so that the wax doesn’t drip on your palms. Then visualize that the light from the pink candle (which should be on your left hand) goes clockwise mixing with the light from the red candle (which should be on your right hand). The light covers you going a clockwise direction. Then imagine that the light from the four white candles becomes a protective shield for you. Do this visualization for about 5 to 10 minutes for 7 days. Making sure that the fire from the candles melts the wax completely.

After each visualization you can put the red and pink candle aside still lighted.

I first learn of this ritual several years ago, when I was still trying to learn Feng Shui. A colleague wanted to do a love ritual that will help her get the love and a partner in life. She did this, and two months after she met a guy who will later on become her husband. She believes that it was this ritual that brought her husband in her life. They have now married for 17 years and have two daughters.

According to my Feng Shui teacher the same ritual can bring back a lost love.

INVOKING THE HELP OF BODHISATTVA KUAN YIN TO BRING BACK A LOST LOVE. A BUDDHIST LOVE RITUAL.kuan yin 5

This is perhaps one of the most powerful Buddhist love ritual that I have recommended. Several of my readers and friends have tried this and all attest to its power to bring back a lost love. However, this ritual only works if the lost love is only due to minor karmic predicament, and not ancestral problem or not a very strong flaw in the Bazi chart or Paht Chee chart of the couple. I noticed that this is mostly for married couples.

The ritual is quite simple. All you have to do is write your name and birthday and that of your husband or wife or partner in a small piece of plain white or plain yellow paper. Make sure that you use red ink.

Go to a temple or if you have an image of Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon). Light three incense sticks and say: NAMO KUAN SHI YIN PUSA (3X), MAY I AND –name of your partner- RECEIVE THE BLESSING OF YOUR COMPASSION SO THAT OUR RELATIONSHIP WILL STRAIGTHEN OUT.

Then chant 108x (one full male) of OM MANI PADME HUM.

Then place the piece of paper at the foot of the image of Bodhisattva Guan Yin. Do this either in the temple or on your own altar. Doing it in the temple and placing the piece of paper at the foot of the image of Bodhisattva Guan Shi Yin in the temple is better and it will work faster, however, you have to make sure that the temple allows it.

I have recommended this several times to my readers, I would say there are about 19 people/couple who have tried it. Only one claims that it didn’t work for her, and I lost contact with another one.

THE 100 DAYS FENG SHUI LOVE RITUAL TO BRING LOVE INTO YOUR LIFE.

If you are single and wants to be in a relationship, you should get yourself a locket and on a small piece of plain yellow or plain white write your name with a red ink and your simple wish. Place it inside the locket and everyday of 100 days; place a fresh petal inside the locket. The petal should be pink or red in color. Place the petal in the morning before 7AM, and take it out the following morning replacing it with a fresh petal. Do it for 100 days. And you soon find love. I have several readers, who did this, and what is amazing about this is that not all of them found love of a partner; sometimes they just learned to love themselves.

Surangama Mantra Amulet N

Pure Land Buddhists believes that when you wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet, heavenly beings that has an affinity with you will hover over you.

I’ve shared before about this Chinese woman who with the use of Surangama Mantra Amulet and some Feng Shui was able to find a husband for her daughter. The Surangama Mantra Amulet when worn is said to attract and activate your connection with the heavenly beings, so much so that they ‘hover’ you. This does not only become a protective amulet but it gives you charisma and charm also because it lightens your aura. My Guru Lama has a treasure trove of stories that I will share in the future posts about people who were able to find love or bring back a lost love when they started wearing the Surangama Mantra Amulet.

I would like to clarify though that the Surangama Mantra Amulet should not be considered as a love amulet, although it has that kind of effect.

TAP INTO THE POWER OF A TRADITIONAL SUTRA AMULET TO GET RID OF THE HINDRANCES THAT PREVENTS US FROM RECEIVING THE LOVE WE HAVE.

Recently, I wrote about the story of Grace who got separated with her husband, and along with receiving some financial blessing, also reunited with her husband because of the Traditional Sutra Amulet. There are different Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA) and all has the power to shower us the blessing of acquiring our wishes be it financial or love or relationship luck. The one used by Grace was THE DIAMOND SUTRA, but for love luck that is experiencing some road blocks or hindrances, THE AVATAMSAKA SUTRA is the best, this works specially well for those two people who are in love but are victims of circumstances. For examples, parents are not in favor, third party, poverty, etc.

All you have to do is put your name and that of your partners name on piece of plain white or plain yellow paper. Use red ink. Then just place it inside the TSA. But as you can see, Grace need not do this. She just had it and it worked for her.

There are a lot of other ways to attract love or mend a lost love. In fact, my Guru Lama performs a special ritual for selected people to get two people together. But this ritual is only for couples that are definitely for each other but are broken apart by different circumstances. Remember the rituals mentioned above will only work if you are also meant for each other. It is not witchcraft to make people fall in love with you, but rather it simply eradicates the hindrances.

Marital Problem Fixed, Financial Problem Solved with the Unexpected Coming In of a Huge Amount of Money / Problem with Bank Loan Reversed: Two Personal Testimonies of Two Readers with Two Different Sources of Miracles! – And Why Do I Write About Miraculous Personal Testimonies?

Published Pebrero 1, 2017 by jptan2012

If there’s one thing that my experienced with Feng Shui and with my belief in (mainly) Buddhism and Taoism, is that MIRACLES DO HAPPEN! And it happens more often than we realize, it is just a matter of being able to recognize it.

I have so many miraculous stories to share, however, I simply don’t have enough time to write them all, on top of it, I will only share miracles that has been shared with me, either in whole or in part thru sms or email, this is so that I have something to show my readers the authenticity of the stories. Before, in order to protect the identity of my readers, I would not share their names and would only put initials. However, I realized I can share their first name and block out some of the important details to prove their identity, and lately if you notice those are the only personal testimonies that I share.

Anyway, today I would like to share with you not one but two personal testimonies of two different readers. I would have wanted to write about it separately but there are so much more things to write about, and truth be told I don’t think you will be happy if I simply write about miraculous personal testimonies of my readers.

But we all have a lesson to learn from these personal testimonies. It is not simply about the Vajrapani Ruel(1), or the Illness Suppression Amulet(1), or any amulet that I happened to write about, but it is about the experiences of readers who like a lot of you may be going through some problems in life. The problems may be personal that has something to do with relationships like your family or your longing for a partner in life. It can be about your personal growth, it can be about your career. It can be about money or the lack of it. What you are going through right now may be unique, but at the bottom of it, the root is basically the same for most people, and so from their stories we all learn something. And most of all, we are given hope that there is something else that we can do.

Such is the case of Grace. I met Grace because of her sister Mercy who is reader and a believer of Feng Shui. According to Mercy her life while she can still hope for something better is actually fine, and when I wrote about the Traditional Sutra Amulets (1)(Diamond Sutra and The Sutra On the Past Vows of Earth Store Bodhisattva) she just felt an affinity with it. Something seems to tell her that she should get it, even though technically speaking the Traditional Sutra Amulet(2) (TSA) is actually a Buddhist religious item and not a Feng Shui item and Mercy is a Catholic. Furthermore, she felt that she should also get one for her sister, Grace, who is actually going through a bad patch in her life.

According to Mercy, her sister Grace got separated from her husband about a year ago, and while Grace and her husband felt that they still love each other, the meddling of the in – laws (mostly the parents of Grace’s husband’s parents) is making things difficult. Grace’s husband is the only son. On top of that, Grace’s business is having some financial problems; she is in danger of losing her business, something that she has strived to build for more than ten years now.

sutra-amulets

These are just one copy each of the very limited copies sent to me by my Guru Lama of the THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA, THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. Sutras are also used as very powerful amulets, that is why you will often old Buddhist Chinese houses has a copy of the Sutra on their altar though they might not be reciting the sutra itself.

Mercy decided to get 2 copies of the TSA, she’ll give one copy to Grace. When I met Mercy, Grace tagged along. She obviously wasn’t a believer and it became apparent when she repeatedly questioned me as to how do the TSA’s work and why are they so pricey. I patiently answered all her questions and told her that technically speaking they are not paying for the TSA, which she calls book amulet, but rather the money goes to either feeding of the monks or images of the Buddha or Bodhisattva. I clearly remembered that she said well hope that her sister is shelling out for would not go to ‘statues’ but rather to the feeding of monks or ‘better yet to hungry even if they are not from the temple’. During our conversation, she subtly but repeatedly discouraged Mercy to get all TSAs, both THE DIAMOND SUTRA and THE SUTRA ON THE PAST VOWS OF EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA.

I met them last December, I think it was in the first week of December, and I didn’t hear from them again, not until a few days ago when Grace sent me a message. Apparently, she the non – believe experienced a wonderful miracle, which she attributes to the Traditional Sutra Amulet. Mercy clarified that while she hasn’t had a great miracle she feels that everything seems to be going smoother now.

Translation for first Filipino Sentence: I DIDN’T DO ANYTHING ELSE… Translation of the Second & Third Filipino Sentence: Maybe you noticed that I was bugging you with all those question because I really don’t believe in Feng Shui. But now I’m a believer.

Going back to Grace. When I talked to her on the phone she said that maybe her first miracle was when she and her husband decided to patch things up last Christmas, and they went back to living together again this January. She said at that time she just ignored it and thought maybe it was really just their love that brought them together (and I sort of agree with her, it really is there love that brought them back together). But then a second miracle happened.

image3

She has a business that should have been doing really well, however, her biggest competitions are the bigger companies that has bigger financial capital thus being able to lower their prices because they can buy things by the bulk and get the items lower and in turn they can pass it on to the consumers at the lower price also. In order to be able to compete with them and in order to survive she needs a big boost on her finances. Her husband’s business while stable is not the liquid to be able to help her, and while her family tried to help, she knows that what they can afford to give her is not enough to help ensure that she will survive the big competitors. At that time that she was given the TSA she was already contemplating shifting to another smaller business or closing it down.

When she and her husband got back together, her husband had a heart – to – heart and man – to – man talk with his father, Grace’s father – in – law. He told him that their meddling with his family is the cause of their marital problem. He also told them the truth that for years, they have treated Grace unfairly, especially his mother who has been quite harsh and critical of whatever Grace do. Surprisingly, the father accepted his mistake and told his son that he will talk to his wife also. At that time Grace’s husband also mentioned the problem of Grace’s business.

image2

According to Grace that she initially doesn’t believe in the Traditional Sutra Amulet (which she call Book Amulet) but because it was pricey she decided to simply follow my instruction and decided to ‘dump’ it behind the images of her Catholic saints.

After getting back together, Grace’s father – in – law paid them a visit. Her mother – in – law didn’t go with him because she is feeling sour that she was partly ‘blamed’ for what happened to Grace and her husband. But Grace’s father – in – law apologized for how they treated Grace and he also offered to finance the expansion of Grace’s business to make it more competitive!!! Of course, Grace initially said no. But the father – in – law actually said that he would take offense if Grace refuses to accept the money. Best of all when Grace had her lawyer come up with an agreement stating as to when she will pay the ‘loan’ the father – in – law tore it up and told her to pay only when able, and that he will consider it as a payment if Grace will cook for them once a week. Grace said this is funny because they used to criticize, especially the mother – in – law, Grace’s cooking. But Grace said she would be more than happy to do that. What is nice here is that Grace never harbored any ill – feeling towards her in – laws because she understands that they felt like she ‘stole’ their son from them.

Grace considers this as a miracle because of the following:

  1. Although a lot of the ‘bullying’ came from her mother – in – law, her father – in – law is a traditional Chinese patriarch and will never humble himself for the younger generation.
  2. The father – in – law believes that Grace shouldn’t be working, much less having her own business. He feels that she should just help her husband in his business and their family business.
  3. His father – in – law whose money is all hard – earned was never ‘generous’ with money.

Before we ended our conversation, Grace said maybe her mother – in – law would be a future miracle.

Similarly, another reader also shared another miracle. Evelyn is a mother of 4 children and is a wife of an Overseas Filipino Worker. I have met Evelyn once and I simply love the ‘energy’ of kindness and love that she exudes.

Evelyn’s eldest child, his son, lives in Australia. I believe he is doing quite well in Australia. And he recently decided to get his very own home. He applied for a bank loan, but even before he got the approval of his bank loan he decided to pay give the non – refundable down payment to the said house. I believe that the down was a substantial amount.

Then comes the bad news from the bank. It seems like there seems to be a minor technicality and he might not get the loan. This is not an option because he already made a down and it is non – refundable.

Evelyn contacted me to ask for help in terms of what mantras to chant to help his son get the loan from the bank. I gave her the mantras. And he waiting started. I suppose it’s an excruciating, heart – pounding wait for them. But in the end the good news is that he got the loan!

Evelyn absolutely believes that they got it because of the power of the mantras. This is such a simple but profound miracle only because Evelyn’s son savings and better future is at stake her.

Two different miracles, two different channel (one is an amulet and the other one is the chanting of mantras)! Why did I decide to write these two miracles in one article?

This is to show that it’s not all about amulets. Mantras will also work as well, and it works best if you have faith and you sincerely do it and pouring in some love will make it more powerful.

We cannot deny that amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel(2), the Traditional Sutra Amulet(3), the Illness Suppression Amulet(2), etc. are an essential part of Buddhism, Taoism, and Feng Shui. We cannot deny that they work. We cannot deny that sometimes it is essential to have them. We cannot deny that things may work faster to our favor if we have them. But we also cannot deny and has to acknowledge that even without amulets we can still get the things that we aspire for. That’s what the mantras are for. Or that’s why we have the power of the prayers as easy as that!

But remember, whether it is thru amulets, mantras, or prayers, that miracles sometimes doesn’t come in a way we want it to be, or in a way we expect it to be. As I always say we should expect miracles, but do not dictate it!

Do We Really Need Amulets? And Why Are REAL Amulets so Pricey?

Published Enero 31, 2017 by jptan2012

I’m a strong advocate of real amulets and a firm believer of one. In fact, a lot of times amulets has become my ‘security blanket’, something that I really need to be able to help me go through my day or week. In fact, last 2016 I greatly relied on amulets to protect myself from bad the effects of the bad stars.

But the question is whether do we really need amulets and why are real amulets so pricey?

Allow me to answer the first question first. Do we really need amulets?

To answer that question allows me to share you the story of somebody who may be familiar already to my readers. BM is a reader who became a friend. She is successful and regardless of what happens she seems always at peace. She may get frazzled a little but it doesn’t really last long. I have featured BM on this blog several times and it would be nice if you read some of the articles that I have written about her.

BM is successful, rich, businesswoman and sure enough she has the Vajrapani Ruel(1), the Surangama Mantra Amulet(1), the Illness Suppression Amulet(1), the Traditional Sutra Amulets(1) and a whole lot more. But truth be told, if you were to ask me what are the causes of her success, I wouldn’t put the use of amulets and Feng Shui as top.

So what do I think are the causes of her success?

First, her spirituality. I will not describe her as religious. At least, not in the sense of the word on how we describe it. She goes to church everyday, she hear mass everyday, she prays the rosary and do novenas everyday. In fact, she prays the rosary more than once everyday. And yes to some extent she can be described as religious, but she is really more than that. She is spiritual. Religion for her goes much more deeper that the essence of the word. And you know what is really fascinating about her? She never or seldom prays for herself. Her prayers are always for other people. With or without problems she goes to church and says her prayers, maybe even more so when everything is good. This is I think is the first ingredient of her success.

Second, she has a good heart and is very compassionate. She is compassionate; many times she has shared with me whether directly or indirectly how it is to be truly compassionate. And she really has a good heart. I know she gives to charity only because there are times that it is unavoidable for her to share it with me, which is done in the process of sharing with me some lessons. A truly compassionate person will always be blessed.

Third, she works really hard. She is intelligent, but more than that she works really hard. When I went to see her, one of her staff told me that her boss, BM, is really hardworking. In fact, she rarely goes home before sunset.

I think those are the main ingredients of her success. But more than her success she has a good family life also and I can see her husband is still ‘madly’ in love with her. I haven’t really had a long interaction with her children, but they seem to be respectful children. Mind you, they should already be in their rebellious stage.

The amulets for her are simply just an added protection or enhancer, and it is not the main ingredient of her good life. In a way, the amulets are simply an added sugar.

Note: Remember that Feng Shui consists of Heaven’s Luck, Man’s Luck and Earth’s Luck!

Allow me to share something else with you. The Buddhist monks or nuns rarely carry with them any amulets, aside from the powerful protective symbol Kalachakra. While I know that the Dalai Lama, and the Karmapa, while escaping the Chinese government did carry an amulet they seldom carry one all the time. The Dalai Lama carried an unknown amulet, and the Karmapa is said to have carried a Vajrapani Ruel(2) with him. But other than that, Buddhist monks and nuns don’t carry amulets with them, or if they do it is limited to one piece only. But, of course, most of them do meditations and chanting of mantras and reciting of sutras and do various rituals more than half of their day, everyday!

So to answer the question whether does we really need amulets, my response would be NO. It helps. It helps a lot. For some people and in some circumstances it may be essential, but if we get to the bottom of it, if we have a strong relationship with the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, or Taoist Gods, or for Christians to your Lord, or for Islam’s to Allah then my answer is no. There is no denying that amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel(3) has helped a lot of people, but there are people who have survive without it. At the end of the day, have a strong faith, be truly compassionate, and work hard both for your career and for your relationships, and you’ll find things will be going smoothly.

Now, then the second question is why are real amulets really pricey?

First, take note of the keyword real. Real powerful amulets are seldom massed produce. Sure they can make more than 1,000 pieces per batch, it is seldom made out of a machine. They are always made by hand. A real amulet is made several days and will be mostly likely involves being made inside a temple, in front of Buddha or a Bodhisattva and should include some relics has part of the ingredient (like the Vajrapani Ruel4) or at the very least being consecrated in front of a relic. It is definitely made by a trained Buddhist Monk and cannot be made by ordinary practitioner. Sometimes, it will include some rituals outside the temple, but will definitely include a process being done inside the temple.

The Jatukam involves some rituals by the sea and mountains. And has a relic from the temple being included in the process. They make several thousand pieces by the batch and sometime take awhile before they can make the next batch. The Vajrapani Ruel(5) involves a relic of a high lama, and can never be made without it, so the last time it was made was a little more than half – a – century ago. This batch that we have now has about a little more than 1,000 pieces but it is considered limited because we don’t know when it is going to be made again. And it can only be made in certain places in Tibet.

The Illness Suppression Amulet(2), and the others are not as difficult to make, but still they are made or consecrated only by a lama that is recognized to have the capabilities of invoking the energies of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas to make the amulet holy and become an extension of the Buddha or Bodhisattva whose essence is being invoked.

Furthermore, while making it is customary to offer a fruits, vegetables, flowers, incense, and oil lamps. So when acquiring an amulet, this is what you pay for. But that’s not what makes it pricey.

It is also customary to give a ‘donation’ to the monk who made it. But this is a misnomer because in truth the money doesn’t go to the one who made the amulet but rather it goes to the temple, for the building of additional temples or halls, for images of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or for feeding the monks.

In the case, of the Vajrapani Ruel(6), Illness Suppression Amulet(3), the Avatamsaka Amulets(1) the Traditional Sutra Amulets(2) and other amulets, the money goes to the offerings of fruits, incense, vegetables, flowers, oil lamps, etc. But more than that it goes to acquiring of the image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva that goes to a hall in a temple that is being built in India (for the Vajrapani Ruel(7) a big chunk of the money goes back to Tibet in helping the people there who are oppressed by the Chinese government) and it becomes a perpetual offering of the person who acquired the amulet.

These are the things that make a real amulet quite pricey.

But again strictly speaking the amulets are not for sale. To understand this better please read my post called: THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

A Short Feng Shui Reminder for the Cures of the 2017 Year of the Fire Rooster and My Thoughts on the 65th Miss Universe!

Published Enero 30, 2017 by jptan2012

Every year I will always write about a short reminder about cures that one needs. This year is no different, but because the 65th Miss Universe is being held in the Philippines, a lot of the Filipinos are on double Miss Universe fever. I’ve been receiving a lot of email and sms asking me for my forecast as to who will win and take home the crown of the Miss Universe. In fact, another reader emailed me to suggest that I should send Ms. Philippines, Maxine Medina, her own Vajrapani Ruel(1) or Surangama Mantra Amulet(1). I doubt whether my Guru Lama will approve of me sending the Surangama Mantra Amulet(2), and the Vajrapani Ruel (2) which is considered as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon to Miss Universe candidates.

Well before anything else I would like to say first that 2017 came in early this year, and while the energies of the year base on the Bazi Chart / Paht Chee Chart and the 24 Mountain Stars Formula has already come in, the energies base on the Flying Stars formula will come in on the 4th of February.

What does this mean? This means that although the good and bad stars, depending on what you have, base on the Flying star have already weakened, it is still best to keep yourself protected or still keep your enhancers, again depending on what you need for the Year of the Fire Monkey. But at the same time, the good and bad stars, again depending on what you have for the Year of the Fire Rooster (if you are not yet familiar with the analysis for your Chinese animal zodiac sign please see the link below at the end of this post about the analysis for this year) will start to affect you, so if you have the bad stars, especially the Wu Wang (#5 Flying Star, 5 – Yellow Star) and the Violent Star (#7 Flying Star), it is best to keep your self protected already. Again, you can read the forecast, and find out the enhancers or cure you need. The link is at the end of this post.

Now, going back to the Miss Universe Pageant. Who will win? The answer is I don’t know. Why? Because I don’t have all their birthdates, and even if I have them, I doubt that will do an analysis considering it is very tedious process. But of course, every individual has their own favorites, and for obvious reasons, most Filipinos are rooting for Maxine Medina.

Feng Shui wise any happy and festive gathering is good because it brings in yang energy, as long as it’s genuinely happy and festive. But I think what is important is to understand is why we are so excited and spend so much money for a beauty pageant. What is the essence of a beauty pageant like the Miss Universe, and in time of severe hardship, poverty, hunger, and war that’s happening in different countries, how is Miss Universe relevant and are they able to offer anything that is sustainable in the said causes?

Again, unfortunately, I don’t have the answer for the questions I pose. I think this is something that we should all answer on our own.

Recite – A – Sutra (9): A Sutra Called Avatamsaka Sutra and Powerful Amulet Called Avatamsaka Amulet that Dispels Off the Hindrances in Our Life’s Luck!

Published Enero 27, 2017 by jptan2012

Life’s luck is such a curious thing. It shows that we are all connected to one another, sometimes our Bazi Chart (Paht Chee Chart) indicates that we are extremely lucky, however, due to our relationships with some people or maybe due to the bad Feng Shui of our house or office we experience a lot of negative things, or maybe these luck that is set for us becomes unattainable.

This is actually more common that we realize. In fact, a lot of the problems that my readers consult me are problems that sometimes are caused by people around them or by ancestors. Or maybe these are problems caused by circumstances that affect their loved ones.

Let me try to explain it further. What I want to say is that sometimes we are strictly speaking lucky, but there are hindrances to our luck because of the luck experienced by the people around us or people we deal with. This is because our luck whether we like it or not is affected by other people, by the people who is around us.

For example, a husband and wife, the luck of the husband may be very good but the wife has extreme bad luck. The business of the husband may be doing really well, but let’s just say the wife was affected with the illness star and actually got terribly sick. Because of this the husband will not experience his full luck potential, he will be pulled down by his wife’s luck. On the other hand, the wife even though suffering from an illness will not also experienced her full bad luck potential, she will be pulled up by her husband’s luck. It may be her chart indicates that she will have to undergo a serious operation, but because the husband’s business is doing well, he will be able to get her the best doctors and medicines that may find another cure. On the other hand, the husband’s business may be doing well, but because of his wife’s bad luck, he won’t be able to save the money that he wants to save.

That’s just how life is, and I believe this is the case because whether we want it or not, this serves as a lesson that we are all connected to one another and that we should look out for one another.

Let me give you another example. In career or corporate world a person may be enjoying the luck of advancement by way of promotion or monetary incentive. But in a department, you seldom work on your own, you will have to have people work under you, above you or you have to work with colleagues. However, one colleague fell ill, then you would have to strive to work harder. Again, you are somewhat pulled down, but then because you have that luck you might have pulled it off and he might have gotten some of the credits of what you did.

Again, this is not being unfair or I don’t want you to think that we should start checking on who has bad luck or good luck. This is a lesson that we have to learn. Bad luck and good luck becomes all good luck if we strive to put in positive energies by way of creating harmony.

What we have to be careful of is when it seems that negative energies because of the bad luck of the people around us seems to completely tip the scale to bad luck. This happens when our luck is just average, or when we are not strong enough to put in positive energies by way creating harmony. Or this may happen when the bad luck energies are coming from people who are not close enough to us for us to influence their situation. This is pretty common amongst people in business. Sometimes the people we deal with in business has so much bad luck that we are affected because, well, because we deal business with them.

On a personal level this imbalanced tipping of the scale favoring the bad luck happens when in the family the majority has bad luck, and you are the only one who enjoys good luck. One against the others doesn’t necessarily mean that you become the loser and all becomes negative, if you are strong enough to balance the scale it will happen.

Sometimes the scale also becomes imbalanced because of bad Feng Shui in the house or office. Or sometimes simply because of the how our elements from our Bazi Chart reacts with the elements of year’s Bazi Chart. A classic example of this is how 56 – year – old Ox – born people have a low or no financial luck this 2017 because of how their elements reacted to the year’s elements.

When the scale becomes imbalanced and becomes too negative it is extremely helpful for us to seek the help of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. One very powerful way to do this is to tap the power of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas by reciting one of the most powerful but quite long Buddhist sutra called Avatamsaka Sutra (also called as Flower Garland Sutra or Flower Adornment Sutra).

This sutra is one of the longest Buddhist Sutras and is also one of the most highly revered. In fact it is so long that parts of it has been taken out and made into a separate sutra.

But before we move forward, maybe you’d be asking as to what is Avatamsaka Sutra. Avatamsaka is actually a Bodhisattva.

He is not a very popular Bodhisattva these days because of the lack of reading materials about him. But according to my Guru Lama who introduced me to Bodhisattva Avatamsaka, he is one of the Bodhisattvas that were talked about by Sakyamuni (Shakyamuni) Buddha in his more advanced sutras and was highly extolled by the Buddha.

Going back to the Sutra.tibetan

According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche and my Guru Lama reciting this sutra will certainly take away all the hindrances to one’s growth and one’s luck be it personal, wealth, financial, love, or family.

The Traditional Sutra Amulet format of the Avatamsaka Sutra is so rare and the few that exists is so big and heavy. However, just in time for the Chinese New Year, my Guru Lama was able to acquire a few pieces of the chapter of the Avatamsaka Sutra that is about Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Avalokitesvara, Kannon), having this Traditional Sutra Amulet will help dispel all the blockage of your good luck and pave away for good luck. My Guru Lama is making 5 pieces of this available here in the Philippines. The good news is that even without understanding it, one can recite it in Chinese because he made sure that there is a Pin Yin beside the Chinese words, for people who want to recite it. Again reciting it is better than simply having a copy. Although having a copy alone will already work wonders.

avatamsaka-sutra

One of 5 copies of the Avatamsaka Sutra (Kuan Yin Bodhisattva Chapter) that’s available here in the Philippines.

Furthermore, my Guru Lama has also acquired some Avatamsaka Amulet made by a Tibetan Yogi Monk (a monk that went through a special disciplinary training akin to yoga but much more deeper and stricter). According to my Guru Lama wearing the Avatamsaka Amulet will definitely take away all the hindrances to all forms of bad luck and at the same time provide us with good luck and help us achieve our full potential. However, I’m unable to provide photo of the Avatamsaka Amulet because according to my Guru Lama this is an amulet that one cannot show to somebody. When you have this, you must keep it inside your shirt. I asked Guru Lama as to why is this the case. All he said is that displaying the said amulet might lose its effectivity if people get attracted to it. He is not sure why this is the case, but this is what they observed. To briefly describe the said amulet, it comes in two forms, one is made of wood with glass, and the other one is made of metal. The two forms are basically the same with a slight variation in the ingredients and material. When one requests for it, one will get it covered in a small pouch and my Guru Lama said the Tibetan Yogi Monk who made it said that the one who requests will attract what he needs.

You don’t have to finish it in one sitting, and you really can’t, what I do is read a chapter a day.
