Sometimes We Simply Have to Trust the Flow of the Energy!

Published Mayo 3, 2018 by jptan2012

Note: This is another article that I wrote last January 12, 2018. Realized that I haven’t posted it and because there is another important thing that one can learn here I’m posting it now.

 

physics-of-flowUpon the invitation of the BM, and also the instruction of my Guru Lama, I recently went to Davao to perform a ritual in the house of BM. Some of you might remember BM as a reader, turned friend, and who has been featured on this blog several times who has been a great teacher to me and to a lot of my readers.

BM did some booboo in her house by making renovations without checking out good dates. She didn’t know that ceiling, roof, and floor renovations no matter how small are considered major renovations. And so, because she committed a somewhat major Feng Shui blunder. To remedy this Guru Lama instructed me to go to her home and fix the problem.

Because I was also busy, I wanted to go “late” in the morning and come back an earlier flight. Earlier than the one she had booked me. Even before she booked my plane ticket, I already told her of my preferred travel time, but I think she wants to have a chit chat and maybe she was just following her instinct she still got me the later flight.

I had the ticket rebooked because after flying in to Davao in the morning, doing the ritual and flying out on the same day, I’m still having another meeting here in Manila. So, after rebooking it I was moved to the 6pm flight back to Manila, instead of the 8pm flight. To make sure, I even had myself checked – in already for the flight out of Davao at 6pm when I arrived there at 11am.

But I should have just gone with the flow. Because, my 6pm flight was initially delayed by 30 minutes. So the 6pm flight because 6:30pm. However, when we were already boarded on the A330 -300. We were all asked to off board the plane because some woman made an inane bomb joke!!! It was a full flight, as in every seat are taken. And according to ‘Google’, a A330 -300 has a capacity of 440 passengers. Imagine 440 passenger off boarding and boarding will take a lot of time! Furthermore, we were all asked to passed by security again, all 440 of us! Then they will have to offload all our luggage to retrieve the baggage of the one who made a bomb joke and to have all the bags sniffed by a bomb – sniffing dog!

To make the long story short, I arrived later than my original flight of 8pm would have arrived and to further burden me, my luggage and that of several other passengers were left behind in Davao. Airport and airline personnel forgot to load them back when they were offloaded.

Moral of the story. Know when we should go with the flow of the energy of the universe.

Myth Buster 46: One Should Not Wear Amulets And Feng Shui Charms in a Yin Place Like a Wake, Funeral, or Hospital Because It Will Absorb the Negative Energies!

Published Nobyembre 10, 2017 by jptan2012

Recently, one of my readers acquired a Vajrapani Ruel(1), and she and her partner are happy about it because she immediately felt the change in her luck. You see this was an interesting case because she was besieged by negative energies on different fronts. First, the Feng Shui of her place is not very nice, then she seems to be besieged by negative entities as confirmed by Guru Lama and other clairvoyant friends she has. Then she may have been a target of an ‘evil eye’ caused by a jealous ‘friend’. So it was a struggle for her to get the Vajrapani Ruel(2), but when she got it she experienced some immediate noticeable change in her luck.

Then one day she went to a wake of a relative whose death occurred during the Hungry Ghost Month, and she left her Vajrapani Ruel(3), thinking that she shouldn’t bring it because it will cause bad luck. I think she might have gotten this impression because of some Feng Shui consultants who commercially sell some Feng Shui items or charms, and they warn people not to bring their charms and amulets in a wake or funeral or even to the hospital because these items may absorb some negative energy.

As a result, after that she again experienced some bad luck! Why is this, it is because she is dealing with a lot of negative energies, and her Vajrapani Ruel(4) is just starting to work for her and then she went to yin place or yin event without her Vajrapani Ruel(5). It means it has to start cleansing her again from all the negative energies she is dealing with.

But what about the warning of most Feng Shui experts that one should not wear charms or amulets in a wake or funeral or when visiting a sick person in the hospital?

My response to this is…WHAT THEN IS THE USE OF GETTING A PROTECTION WHEN IT CAN’T PROTECT YOU AT A TIME THAT YOU NEED IT MOST?

At the onset of this blog, I already have written and discussed whether we can and whether we should bring our amulets or charms to Yin places such as an hospital, a wake or a funeral, but it is worth writing about it again.

If you take a closer observation, you will notice that the Feng Shui experts who warn against wearing charms and amulets in a yin place or event are mostly commercialized Feng Shui experts. By commercialized I mean somebody who is more focused on selling rather than helping. But it doesn’t mean that all Feng Shui experts who has commercial store act this way, because the world’s most famous Feng Shui consultant doesn’t stop her followers from bringing the amulets or charms into a yin place.

So going back to the ‘teaching’ of some Feng Shui consultants not to bring charms and amulets to a yin place. I have never fully understood the logic of this, because all the more you need to get protected if you are going to a yin place. And so come to think of it there is no logic to this statement or instruction.

When going to the a wake, funeral, hospital or any yin place, all the more you should wear your amulets and charms, because you have to be protected from the negative or yin energies of the place. Not wearing them will deprive you from getting protected thus affect you in a negative way. Amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel(6), Illness Suppression Amulet, Surangama Mantra Amulet, Traditional Sutra Amulet, Kalachakra, Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, now the Special Gold Piyao, and even the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Amulet (this is no longer available) are all self – cleansing and self – energizing amulet. This is especially true for other amulets that have a mantra in it, like those that were released by a famous Feng Shui consultant and expert.

Feng Shui charms and crystals should be cleansed after wearing them in a Yin place. There are crystals that are also self – cleansing and self – energizing, but to take away the confusion, one can simple cleanse these items after visiting a Yin place. You do this simply by putting them on top of a rock salt (or sea salt, pink Himalayan salt, black lava salt) for 7 hours to overnight! That’s it.

So next time you go to a Yin place, please make sure you are protected by wearing your amulets or charms. If you’re Feng Shui consultant or if you’re seller tells you that you can’t wear it in a Yin place, drop them and look for another consultant, or don’t buy the amulet or charm.

Separated for 17 Years Brought Together By the Power of the Traditional Sutra Amulet: A Personal Testimony of A Person Who Has No Idea of What Buddhism or Feng Shui Is All About and a Little of My Personal Musings.

Published Setyembre 25, 2017 by jptan2012

For the past few days I was quite down physically, emotionally, and psychologically. The past few weeks has been quite challenging because three different groups have been consulting me about the same matter, and initially I wasn’t sure that they were all related then in the process I realized these groups were consulting about the same matter. They’re all in three different sides, well technically speaking, but the other two are on the same side, one on a personal level and the other one on a macro perspective. This has taken a toll on me both physically because meeting them is a tedious thing, psychologically because a lot of what was happening between them involves a lot of psychological warfare and deception, and emotionally because somehow one can’t get involve and become friends to some of them and of course one worries also especially if the reading or analysis of the chart shows something that is not nice.

Then a reader sent me a message who recently bumped into an employee of a professional Feng Shui consultant. And because my reader used to be a valued customer of the said Feng Shui consultant, the employee told her that his boss is really angry with me and blames me for the closing or downsizing of the Feng Shui stores in the Philippines. The employee further told my reader that it seems like it has become a personal mission of this Feng Shui consultant to malign me and bad mouth me in any possible way. And why is he sharing this with her, because he is looking for a job and wanted to work for my reader, so I think I will give the whole story some leeway for an exaggeration but still these things does get into you.Emily SMS

On top of that, another valued reader and friend for some reason stumbled into an issue and somewhat felt a little aloof. Of course, people surrounding him who doesn’t know him will be quick to judge, I’m just thankful that at the end all the positive things that happened prevailed for him to know and accept the truth. On top of that there was some sort of a miscommunication with a reader from Australia.

You see all these things sort of got to me and for a while I was thinking whether I should still continue writing or not. I have already written more than 800 articles, and even before I sort of feel that I might have written enough. So I thought I’d stop already or maybe stop on my 1,000th article.

Then I get another miracle and it all becomes clear again why I continue to write, despite of the anger of some people who are against these things, despite the attacks of some bashers, despite of some of my own shortcomings, I continue to write because of the miracles of the people who continue to believe and who continue to hope for miracles.

This particular miracle got to me because the persons involved waited for 17 years for it to happen.

Ben is an Uber driver. I met him October last year (that’s according to Ben) when my own driver was absent and I had to take Uber and we got into talking in the car because of a heavy traffic. I was with a friend at that time when Ben casually told us his story.

Ben is a single father of two. He lives on his own because his ex-wife is with their only daughter in Canada. His daughter, who happens to be his eldest, is now 25 years of age. My friend and I asked him why he didn’t live with them; he said he chose to stay because of his ‘true love’. His first wife has since remarried.

Ben said that he was not in – love with his ex-wife, he said they both got drunk and in the process he got his ex – wife pregnant and they bore a daughter. He said while his ex – wife is really not a bad person, they can’t seem to get along well especially ex – wife is a bit of a nagger. When their eldest was only a year old ex – wife left for Canada and made a promise to get them as well. Ben is the first to admit that ex – wife is a smart woman, and a hardworking one so when their daughter was about 7 years old they got their papers from Canadian embassy granting them permit to live in Canada with ex –wife who at that time was still his legal wife.

However, in the past few years Ben met another whom he had an affair with. Ben said he was contemplating separating with his wife then so that he can be with Lot the woman he is having an affair with. But Ben admits while he loves Lot he was racked with guilt for his wife. Nevertheless, she got Lot pregnant and knows that she has to do something about it.

Ben made a decision he will leave his wife so that he can be with Lot. But Lot wants Ben to talk with her father first, who has never liked Ben. So Ben and Lot’s father met. During that meeting Ben told his Lot’s father that he has decided to talk to his wife so that can properly separate and that he wish to marry Lot and take responsibility for the child. Should Lot and his father decides that they should not be married, he will still take responsibility of the child and give part of his salary from his job with Max’s Restaurant to provide for his child with Lot. The father was very amiable during that meeting, to which Lot was absent, and requested for Ben to give them a week to decide. And during that week, he told Ben not to see Lot because he doesn’t want her daughter to be confused and wants her to decide properly whether she wants to be with Ben or not. He told Ben that he would personally get in touch with him at his work. Ben said at that time they still don’t own mobile phones.

A week passed and he didn’t hear from Lot and her father. Halfway thru the second week he went to Lot’s house and he was met by Lot’s father who told him that Lot doesn’t want anything to do with him. He pursued Lot several times but Lot never once went out to meet him. Until the barangay told him that should he visit the place again he will be charged. Soon he found out that Lot’s family moved to a different house. He doesn’t know where.

But to be fair with his wife, he told her the truth and told her that he will not be joining them in Canada. So when his daughter left he explained to her why he was staying and told him she might have a sibling soon. That was 17 years ago last year and he has never heard of Lot again. He said he has been searching for on Facebook to no avail. He doesn’t even know whether their child survived or not and if it did he doesn’t know whether it is a boy or a girl.

Ben said he has never been with anybody else since then.

I just recently wrote about the Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA) when I encountered Ben and was told about this story. My girl – friend who was with me at that time got really affected and told me we should do something for Ben. I decided to give Ben a TSA, and my friend who is a believer and just had a miracle from her Vajrapani Ruel pitched for half of the cost of donation for the TSA.

We got Ben’s number and he got ours. But of course we didn’t hear from each other again.

And so the past week I was feeling down and I got a call from Ben. To be honest, it’s been almost a year and I don’t remember him anymore. But Ben would help lift me out of that feeling of being down and he reminded me why I write about these things.

You see after 17 years Ben met Lot again and after 17 years he met his son! They now live together and will be married soon. So what happened?

After meeting Ben, Lot’s father went home fuming mad and told Lot to forget about Ben because Ben told him that while he will support their child financially, he will not acknowledge the child because he is married and is scheduled to leave for Canada! Lot was really heartbroken with this piece of news and so when her father suggested that she goes live with her uncle (his father’s brother) and auntie in Novaliches (a place quite far from where they live which is in Rizal) she agreed. That’s where she gave birth and soon his parents also moved to Novaliches and they lived next door to the Uncle and Auntie who took care of her while she was pregnant.

She didn’t know that Ben went looking for him but he was constantly sent away but his parents and that finally they threatened to charge him for continuously badgering them. When Lot’s son was 13 years old Lot’s father has a heart attack and before he died he told Lot that should he see Ben again she should talk to him. Lot said why should he when he has abandoned them, but Lot’s father just said that maybe Ben has repented, although Lot thought this was curious she just decided that this was all just musings of a dying old man.

When Lot’s son was 15 years old, he told his mom that he wants to meet his dad, but Lot told him to just leave Ben alone and that he has nothing to do with their life. She even refused to give him Ben’s name.

Last week of October 2016 Lot’s son had an idea to make a Facebook account for his mother, and he thought he’d put in the relationship status ‘Complicated’ in the hope that when Ben sees his mom’s account he will contact them. Little did he know that Ben would from time to time search for Lot on FB and he did see the account made by their son for Lot.

When their son saw Ben trying to add and chat Lot, he had a gut feel that this could be his father and saw he told his mom about the FB account he made for her and about the man name Ben who was trying to get in touch with her. Lot got so angry, angry like she has never been before. And so their son knew then Ben was his father. But Lot also asked for the details of the FB and he soon chatted with Ben.

She decided to meet Ben first and when Ben called her ‘Balot’ again, a pet name Ben created for Lot, she knew that she was still in love with Ben. And the rest is history. Ben said he is now trying to establish a good relationship with his son. He said it was not easy but they’re both trying. Ben and Lot will get married soon. Ben said he forgot about the TSA and never attributed everything to it. But when cleaning the house, Lot saw and asked him about the TSA, and he told him the story. They realized that their son put up the FB account a week after Ben got the TSA. And so that sealed their belief that it was really because of the TSA that they got back together. Ben wants me to be their godfather on their wedding. I felt I was too young to be their godfather but I still said yes. It’s a miracle that they got back 17 years after and my girl – friend who is going to be a godmother will want to witness the wedding that is 17 years in the making.

With this story there is another miracle, and that is the miracle of Ben sharing with me their story at this time. It helped me to stay on track to continue writing what I write. Will I stop on the one thousandth post? I don’t know but in the meantime Ben and Lot’s story is one of the reasons why I write and share these things.

A Medical Doctor Seeks Help for Her Son: A Personal Testimony of a Reader

Published Setyembre 21, 2017 by jptan2012

I have come across a lot of different readers, but the ones that strike me as really special are from people whose training directs them not to believe in Feng Shui or Amulets. These are mostly medical doctors.

Today, allow me to share the story of mother who happens to be a medical doctor. Emerene is a pediatrician, a wife and mother. She got in touch with me out of desperation because of her son.

Apparently, one of her son has been a sickly child, but the real challenge doesn’t lie there, because the real challenge is that whether how much she resist the idea there are times that her son seems to have an ‘imaginary’ friend. He will talk and play with somebody that nobody else seems to see. Furthermore, he started drawing things that seems to depicting an old person.

It took her awhile to get in touch with me because as she mentioned the medical doctor in her is resisting the idea of something that may be ‘supernatural’ or esoteric. However, when she dreamt of her brother who has passed away telling her that her son might have seizures and something may happen she panicked a little and mother’s instinct kicked in and ignore her medical training and decided to get in touch with me.

This is something beyond me, and so I referred this to Guru Lama, in which Guru Lama described some of the things happening and also some parts of her house, specifically an old tree to which Emerene has never mentioned to me. Emerene was quite surprise with this and I think that made her realized the truth about these things, even though one cannot fully explain these things.

I remember that Emerene’s case was really special because we are dealing with some very strong out – of – this – world entity and Guru Lama advised her to get not just one but four different amulets. These are Vajrapani Ruel, Illness Suppression Amulet, Traditional Sutra Amulet (TSA), and a Surangama Mantra Amulet. She was also asked to do a very tedious ritual, which out of love she did.

But at the end, the physical effort and the money that she spent to acquire the amulets all paved off. Her son didn’t only stopped talking to the ‘invisible friend’, he also stopped drawing those scary images, but on top of it she said he has become healthy and furthermore, his grades in school started going up. On top of that, Emerene says that her house has since become more peaceful

I requested Emerene to write about her experience and she did so you can all read it in her own words, albeit her version is an abridged one.

The Creation of Wealth: Is Wanting to Get Wealthy A Sin and A Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet Miraculous Story Shared by My Guru Lama!

Published Setyembre 1, 2017 by jptan2012

wealthEncountering new amulets is always a unique and wonderful experience. Being one of the instruments to make the amulet available to some people is even a bigger blessing. Just recently another powerful wealth amulet was introduced in this blog, the amulet is called the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, and while it is a fairly new amulet to be read about, it is technically an old amulet since the instruction of it was found by my Guru Lama about 20 years ago in a Tantric Buddhist Scripture, whose original copy is said to have been written by high lama in Tibet approximately 1,200 years ago. This means, the amulet itself has been existing at the very least 1,200 years or maybe even more. There were several initiation for an amulet in the said Tantric Buddhist Scripture, and several are in use now, however, as to why this particular amulet has not been regularly used, nobody knows.

In the post called THE VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET: AN INTRODUCTION TO A VERY POWERFUL WEALTH AMULET, I wrote about how Guru Lama in a deep meditative state discovered the holy book (a copy of the original one) where the instruction and ritual in making this amulet was written. He also made this amulet for the first time for one of his Sangha member who at that time lives in poverty but is now one of the famous rich Singaporean businessmen.

Although that was the first time Guru Lama made the amulet, it was definitely not the last. From time to time, he will make the amulet for some people who badly need it. And today, I will share one of the stories whom Guru Lama has blessed by making this amulet for that person.

Chun Qiet (CQ) is a Malaysian – Chinese who was born in Singapore. His parents are both devout Buddhist and are Sangha members of the temple where Guru Lama serves as Abbot. His family would always go to temple and Guru Lama knows the family quite well. One day, tragedy strike, CQ’s family had an accident and both of CQ’s parents died.

CQ was left with his father’s business. But CQ was only 19 then and he is not familiar with the business. An uncle came to help, but after 4 years they soon found out that he is not capable of running his brother’s business and suggested to CQ to just sell the business. Since CQ is close to Guru Lama, he sought him out and asked for blessings. CQ confessed that if he doesn’t sell the business he might be left with nothing. He might have to sell their house. But at the same time he confessed that he doesn’t want to sell his father’s business because he feels that it is his father’s legacy.

Guru Lama doesn’t agree that CQ’s father’s legacy is the business because he believes the CQ’s father’s legacy is CQ himself, who has proven himself to be a responsible and good young man.

After that conversation that Guru Lama had with CQ, he decided to make the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet for CQ.

Note: That was not the second time Guru Lama made the amulet; he has made it for several other people.

After receiving the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, CQ was approached by an old friend of his father to ask about his welfare and the business. CQ opened up about his dilemma, and surprisingly this ‘uncle’ offered to invest in the business so CQ can help bring it back up, but on top of that he offered to help in the business. CQ’s uncle was initially reluctant because he was afraid that his brother’s friend would just take over the business. But somehow CQ realized that he got nothing to lose and he decided to just plunge into it, besides he felt that the amulet would help him.

Well, it did. That was 14 years ago. CQ is now again the sole owner of the business he inherited from his father. He has since made the business bigger. His father’s only guided him in the business for 3 years after which he gradually left the business until it was made official thru legal papers again 7 years after he invested and ‘meddled’ in the business. CQ has since then ‘bought him out’ of the business again, obviously this was done amicably. CQ firmly believes that it was because of the amulet that he was fortunate enough to be reacquainted with his father’s friend.

Vaisravana.

King Vaisravana a powerful Buddhist wealth god is the chief of the Four Heavenly Kings.

Guru Lama explains that the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is not an amulet that gives you a quick rich blessing. Although, he has seen this happened also. However, he said the main effect of the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is protection; protection that you don’t lose your wealth or money, but it is also helps you create your wealth by leading you to the right people and to the right sources. Guru Lama explains that in “Maha Biddhuya Vaircona Abihidisambohi Vikurvitadthisnana Vaipulya Sudrentaha Raja Nama Dharma – Paryaya”, the Tantric Buddhist Scripture or book where he found the guideline for the initiation of the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet, it clearly states that this particular wealth amulet is an amulet that helps gather wealth sources for you, then helps you actualize your wealth, after which it will stabilize it and makes it a continuous process to help your wealth grow bigger and bigger. Thus it is imperative that the container is a cylindrical metal to represent continuity and stability. What does this mean? It means it is unique in such a way that it doesn’t pull out from your bazi or karma or own luck the money, but rather it creates wealth luck for you. Other amulets like the Vajrapani Ruel, which is mainly a protective amulet but has a very high percentage of wealth luck manifesting features, will bring wealth luck to you if you have wealth luck base on your bazi or karma. Our life are pre – determined, but this doesn’t mean that it is only pre – determined on a single path, it is pre – determined with various paths, the normal is 3 – 4 paths, sometimes more, but there are times that it is only 2. However, admittedly there is a single path is more dominant than all the other paths. And what the Vajrapani Ruel and the other amulet does is get your wealth luck from all the other paths. The Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is unique in such a way that even if there is no wealth luck in all the ‘paths’ of your life, it creates it for you. So in a way it changes your wealth destiny. So this amulet is very good for people who absolutely don’t have wealth luck. Nevertheless, for those who have wealth luck already but are unable to tap into it, the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet helps pull those luck for you, make it attainable and then creates a new path for you so that it becomes sustainable and continuous, it is not a “one time, big time” thing.

Inside the metal container are the consecrated mantras of King Vaisravana, the chief of the Four Heavenly Kings, and a known wealth god, with the consecrated mantras of the Yaksa (also spelled as Yaksha) wealth gods: Green Dzambhala, White Dzambhala, Yellow Dzambhala, Red Dzambhala, and Blue Dzambhala/Black Dzambhala!

Note: Dzambhala is also spelled as Dzambala, Jambhala, Jambala, Zambhala, Zambala.

The mantras were printed under strict Mahayana guidelines found in the Tantric Buddhist book and then consecrated under strict Mahayana – Hinayana initiations. It was then sealed under special prayers and mantras that a high lama like Guru Lama can chant.

Some of you might be asking why create a wealth amulet. That is because whether we accept it or not we are living in a time where there is a lot of uncertainty and money problems or financial problems seems to becoming more common. We all want and need financial blessings or money blessings and there is nothing wrong with it. It boils down to the intent and purpose; those are the things that determine the goodness or evilness of having money.

Majority of my readers are Christians, which is ironic because a lot of those attack my site as evil are also Christians, and I’m sure a lot of you will be asking whether isn’t this bad because ‘money is the root of evil’.

Money is not the root of evil. Money is simply that money, it’s a tool. It’s just like a computer or an iron or a chair or car, how we use it makes it evil or good. We are the root of evil, but we are also definitely the root of goodness. What we make of it determines whether it becomes evil or not.

To further answer whether money is bad, or wanting to be wealthy is bad or not, allow me to share something with you.

There is a silent but big number of theologist and scholars who believes that Christianity actually evolved from Buddhism. I have written about this in the past but to briefly put it, Christianity existed about 500 to 1000 years after Buddhism. And the similarities are simply astounding. For example, the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit are very similar to the concept of the Holy Trinity of Buddhism which consists of Amitabha Buddha (who even is not considered as Shakyamuni Buddha’s father is actually an ‘older’ Buddha and was the one who sent Bodhisattva Vajrapani to protect Sakyamuni Buddha on the eve of his full enlightenment), Buddha Sakyamuni (who is the Buddha of our world, who became human first and it has to be noted, if there is a tempting of Jesus Christ, there was also a tempting of Sakyamuni Buddha on the eve of his enlightenment), and Bhaysajyaguru Buddha or better known as Medicine Buddha (which is the only celestial Buddha, a Buddha that didn’t assume a human physical form). As you can see one can see that here this three Buddhas is similar to the Holy Trinity of the Christians.

Furthermore, the concept of the Holy Mother or the Virgin Mother can be akin to Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara who became Kuan Yin Bodhisattva. Even the white dress with the veil is very much similar. Not to mention her ascension is very similar to the ascension story not of Bodhisattva Kuan Yin but rather of Buddha Sakyamuni’s earthly mother.

Note: Bodhisattva Kuan Yin is also called, as already mentioned Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva and the other names are Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Quan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Quan Yin Bodhisattva, Guan Shi Yin Bodhisattva, Guan Yin Bodhisattva, Bodhisattva Chenrezig, or Kannon Bodhisattva.

Not only that, the concept of Second Coming is very similar to the concept of the coming of the next Buddha, which is Maitreya Buddha. I can go on and on about the other similarities but I think that is a topic for another post.

I say this because I find it surprising the despite of the many similarities, one of the major difference is how one looks at money or wealth. Most Christians whether Catholic or otherwise are not comfortable talking about wanting to have more money or increasing their wealth. That is despite of the fact churches are quite rich. In Buddhism, there is nothing wrong in wanting more money or having the desire to increase wealth. In fact, Buddhism teaches that wealthy people have good karma, it may or may not be from this life but it can be from past life or past lives. Also, being wealthy makes it easier to practice Dharma and to become kinder and helpful to other people. I’m not saying that it is a prerequisite, but what I’m saying is that it is a good tool to make oneself become more compassionate and be helpful.

Allow me to share a story that supposedly happened thousand of year ago:

Lama Atisha, the revered lama and Mahasiddha, came across an old man, dying of starvation in Bodghaya. Lama Atisha offered his own flesh, cut from his body, to save the old man. But the old man said, “How can I eat a monk’s flesh?” Lama Atisha felt helpless in the face of this suffering. In Lama Atisha’s moment of despair, Chenrezeig (Guan Yin), the Compassionate One, appeared to Atisha and said, “Out of my eye, will manifest Jambhala, the Buddha of wealth, to help suffering beings. I shall alleviate their poverty so they will not be distracted from practicing the good heart.”

This is just one version of the timeless story of Jambhala, a “wealth deity,” a profoundly simple story that illustrates why wealth is not necessarily the root of all evils. Again, I would like to bring your attention to the statement that says: I SHALL ALLEVIATE THEIR POVERTY SO THEY WILL NOT BE DISTRACTED FROM PRACTICING THE GOOD HEART. For me this is very important.

Note: The use of Buddha of Wealth is debatable whether it was really the term use. However, some scholars argue that sometimes Buddha is use every time there was selfless act done out of extreme compassion.

Buddhism is all about non – materialistic, and I think it’s teaching about wealth and being non – materialistic perfectly compliment each other. If you are wealthy and is non – materialistic then you have practiced or is practicing one of the greatest dharma.

When Jonathan Ciliberto, a famous writer and critic of books especially Buddhist books, reviewed the book “A Shower of Jewels: Deities of Wealth” he wrote that “a lack of money is an obstacle to practice” to dharma or Buddhism. He further stated that, “Poverty itself, can make practice difficult. It is difficult enough to find birth in the precious human realm, our opportunity to practice the Dharma, without adding to suffering with the burden of poverty. One of the great perfections of practice is generosity—helping all sentient being. Instead of thinking of wealth as selfish (or feeling guilt about its accumulation), we should instead consider the Buddhist concept that wealth can be a virtuous means to help others.”

In Christianity or even in the West (generally speaking) there is some stigma attached to the idea of accumulating wealth when discussing spirituality and generosity.

Venerable Zasep Rinpoche, during a teaching at Gaden Choling explained that in eastern countries wealth practice is not frowned upon as it might be in western cultures. (I would like to clarify that eastern here refers to non – Christian countries). He further added that while meditating on and trying to accumulate wealth might be perceived as the opposite of generosity, as always with Buddhist philosophy, it comes down to intention. If the intention is to achieve virtuous deeds like generosity, healing, relieving the suffering of others and oneself, then wealth practice and accumulation is a meritorious deed.

Vaisravana Dzambhala Wealth Amulet

The Vaisavana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet has the consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings and the mantras of the Five Dzambhalas. Furthermore, there are some special ingredients in powder form that are included to add to the potency of the amulet. Before it is sealed it is furthered consecrated on the image of The Four Heavenly Kings.It is placed in a metal case, not just for its durability and protection but according to the Tantric Buddhist Scripture book where Guru Lama got the instructions for this amulet, it has to be placed in cylindrical metal case to symbolize continuity and stability. Approximately 1.5 inches in height.

In the book “World of Transformation: Tibetan Art of Wisdom and Compassion”, which was authored by Marilyn Rhie, David Jackson and Robert A.F. Thurman, the father of Hollywood actress Uma Thurman who happens to be a good friend of Dalai Lama and Tibetan Buddhism scholar and professor, it stated that, These deities of prosperity are… benevolent, and are helpful to spiritual people by supporting the educational purpose of life in the Buddhist perspective.”

It makes sense, if we live in poverty and if we constantly look for money for our day to day survival, we won’t be able to progress in our spiritual growth and more importantly we are unable to help other.

The purpose of practicing wealth rituals or wearing or carrying amulets with high wealth effect like the Vajrapani Ruel, Surangama Mantra Amulet or the Traditional Sutra Amulets or wealth amulets like the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is mainly to provide the means to help oneself and others. Its purpose is not to live a life of luxury but it’s to remove the obstacle to the spiritual practice like eliminating poverty, which is certainly a hindrance.

This reminds me of people like Nanay Socorro Ramos (of the famous National Bookstore) or Bill Gates, or some of my readers like the one in Malaysia or Davao (BM) who despite of being really rich, they maintain a humble and most of all they benefit other people with their wealth. They use their money to help other people.

Now is there anything wrong in wanting to get rich, have money and become wealthy? Well, Buddhism says if the intention is pure, then there is nothing wrong with it.

A Financial Blessing or Miracle for the Born – Again Christian Who Is Not A Believer of Amulets: How A Simple Miracle Turned a Woman into Believing that there is Indeed Something with the Vajrapani Ruel!

Published Marso 14, 2017 by jptan2012

Since I started this blog in 2012 and became a Feng Shui writer I have been accused of a lot of things, but the most common one is that I’m the devil and that what I write is about is the work of the devil. Although I don’t have the formal statistics, I would say that it is not an exaggeration that 95% or even more of those accusations came from people who profess that they are born – again Christian.

Now, let us jump to the EV who requested that she remains to be identified as EV on this blog, and who was featured on this blog twice already for the miracles that she experienced with the Vajrapani Ruel. What I have never mentioned on this blog is that EV belongs to a born – again Christian (Protestant) family. Her daughters were raised as born – again Christians.

In fact, I remember the first time I met her she mentioned that she is not showing her Vajrapani Ruel to her husband.

Anyway, today I would like to share with you again another miracle that EV experienced. Well, technically it’s not her miracle but being a loving mother that she is, whenever her children gets something it is like she herself experienced them.

EV’s second daughter works for big reputable company. Lately, she has been ranting that she is no longer happy with her company because she is overworked, because she is actually the one who does the work of her boss. But more than that she is no longer financially satisfied or contented with what she is getting from the company.

Being a loving mother that she is, she naturally got worried about her daughter’s ranting. And so she decided to give her Vajrapani Ruel to her daughter. Her daughter who was raised as born – again Christian and who has chosen it to be her faith was naturally a little repulsive to the idea of carrying it. But, I guess, she was raised well and so she indulged her mother by keeping it.

At this point, allow me to share with you what EV emailed me…CVinluan

Dear JP,
I gave my Vajrapani Ruel amulet to my youngest daughter because her bazi chart for this year is not good (I’m a fengshui believer so somehow I understand it) and besides you comfirmed about her chart (not good). I just told her either she wears it or put it in her bag. By the way, she always rants about her work because she is not well -compensated.
The said amulet was with her in less than a week and should I say a “miracle” happened because her boss proposed that when she closes a project with their prospect clients she gets a commission. This means an additional income and no doubt, it’s the Vajrapani Ruel which helped my daughter (note: she doesn’t believe so much in fengshui). I advised her to be always positive even if things are not falling into right places.
I found a real friend who is kind, understanding, honest and trustworthy — that’s you, JP. Thanks a lot for the help.

Your friend,
Mrs. E.V.

What EV didn’t share here but she told me offline is that they consider it as a miracle because it is something that her boss wouldn’t consider doing because it is simply out of his character. Second, she is not in good terms with her boss. And for it to be offered to her a few days after she got the Vajrapani Ruel is simply too much of a coincidence.

EV also told me that her daughter also got to thinking that there must be something really powerful with the Vajrapani Ruel. They consider this as a miracle, because the amount of projects or business as EV shared with me can go as high as Php 10,000,000.00 (Ten Million Pesos) or US$200,000.00!

Vajrapani Ruel

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. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

In Feng Shui A Little Common Sense Will Help Appease Our Worries!

Published Agosto 2, 2016 by jptan2012

Several months ago somebody called me who is quite frantic, because her prayer bead or mantra bead or mala broke while she was using it. She was really scared that this is an omen of extreme bad luck. In the same manner, I was reminded of another call that happened a few years back, a friend called me because his citrine with nine – eyed DZI bracelet broke just when he was about to take it off. He became worried also that this is also an omen of financial bad luck.

But you see the lady who called me about the broken mala has been using her mala for more than 10 years already. And the guy has had his citrine beads with nine – eyed DZI bracelet for almost 2 years, and he takes it off and wears it everyday. So you see, common sense dictates that there is no omen. It is really just bound to happen because of wear and tear.

Nevertheless, I cannot blame them from panicking, because a lot of Feng Shui writers will attribute such occurrence as an omen. And in some way, they may be correct, but this is where common sense should come in.

If you have been using your mala for more than 10 years it is bound to break, maybe earlier if the quality of the string used is not so good. Beaded bracelet needs to be replaced every year because the garterized thread or nylon thread used in those bead bracelets if stretched everyday will only last about a year, sometimes even shorter if you live in a hot weather and if the quality is bad. So you see, they are bound to break, and not every breakage is a sign of bad omen.

When should you worry, if the incident of the breakage is somewhat can’t be explained. Like a 2 – week old mala breaking off, or a bracelet breaking off without an apparent reason, that’s when it should be considered as a bad omen. What should you do if this happened? Consult a Feng Shui or if one is not available, take a sea salt or rock salt bath to help take away the negative energy.

Myth Buster 43: Dreams Means the Opposite Will Happen!

Published Hunyo 27, 2016 by jptan2012

lucid-dreamingOne day I receive a frantic call from a sister of a friend. She was really scared because according to her daughter told her about a dream. In her daughter’s dream, TL, my friend’s sister gave birth to a baby. That was it.

But you see TL has this belief that in dreams the opposite will happen. So death means birth and birth means death, she was really scared that somebody in the family is going to die and that this might be her daughter who dreamt of the dream.

Obviously, TL is not a reader. Because is she reads my blog that dream interpretation is seldom linear. While it’s true that the opposite may happen, often times a dream is seldom interpreted directly or directly opposite.

Well, in this case the interpretation is quite easy. I told TL that she should expect some good news. You see according TL the dream was she gave birth to a baby and everybody was happy. The dream is quite clear, there is going to be change and the change is something good.

True enough, a week after that dream, TL’s husband got a promotion.

Meeting A Long Time Friend Who Happens to Be a Very Generous Actor – How the Vajrapani Ruel Created An Opportunity to Solve the Financial Problem of A Person!

Published Marso 17, 2016 by jptan2012

To this day, a little more than a year after I was blessed to be able to introduce the Bodhisattva Vajrapani, which is described in the ‘THE NOBLE STACK OF AUSPICIOUSNESS MAHAYANA SUTRA’ as auspicious and powerful Bodhisattva (Vajrapani Bodhisattva is the only Bodhisattva to receive this kind of description because is brings in a lot of auspiciousness and He is known to be very powerful that He creates a lot of miracles), and the Vajrapani Ruel, I’m still totally amazed by the number of positive feedbacks and testimonials I get from people who invoke the power of Bodhisattva Vajrapani by inviting the Vajrapani Ruel or simply by chanting his mantra – OM VAJRAPANI HUM.

Today, allow me to share with you another wonderful story of how the Vajrapani Ruel created opportunity for a person to meet an actor who in turn paved a way for him to have his own micro business.

AK, is a 25 year old half – Filipino, half – Middle Eastern man. He grew up here in the Philippines that is why his Filipino is quite good. According to AK, his life was good, they are not rich but neither they are poor. That is until his father died when he was 18 years old. Being the eldest in the family, it was left upon him to help his mother, and life has been such a struggle since then. They find it hard to have their income work for a family of 11, including the mom and so while he, his mom, and one of his sister works really hard, having so many mouth to feed makes it naturally difficult for them to make ends meet.

It was his mother who read my blog, and so when AK decided to move to Manila to try his luck here, her mother saved up enough money and insisted that AK meet me to get a Vajrapani Ruel. AK met up with me and was honest in saying telling me that he doesn’t believe in Feng Shui or Buddhism and that he had a fight with his mom because of the Vajrapani Ruel. In short, he was bordering on being brutally frank and honest to being rude. However, he clarified that he will get the Vajrapani Ruel not because he believes it will give him good luck but for her mother’s peace of mind who totally believes in it.

This happened a few weeks ago and I didn’t expect to hear anything from AK and I was a little concern that he might not notice the miracle should it happen because he doesn’t believe in it. However, Bodhisattva Vajrapani has something else for both AK and me.

As mentioned, AK came here to start working because they practically have to work everyday in the province and double jobs to make both ends meet. To be fair with AK he didn’t leave his province until he was sure that he’d be able to get a job here. While it’s a job that he doesn’t like, he believes that it should be enough for a while until he is able to find a more suitable job.

Vajrapani Ruel

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. The Vajrapani Ruel itself is only about 1 to 2 inches and it varies from one ruel to another.

When he got the Vajrapani Ruel he was already in Manila for 3 weeks and has been working in his new job as store clerk for a retail store for 3 weeks already. According to AK to save up money he would usually go out of the mall for lunch so that he can buy ‘cheaper’ or more affordable food. That was his routine since he started working. On the 5th day that the Vajrapani Ruel was with him, he followed his routine, but this was interrupted by the fact that there was a film crew shooting on the carinderia (eatery/small food stall) where he usually eats. He was about to leave when he noticed amongst the crowd is the cousin of his childhood best friend. He has since lost contact with his best friend when he is about 15 years old. He approached the cousin of his childhood best friend, he admitted he was wondering whether the cousin would still remember him, and even before he was able to get near the cousin saw him, and ran towards him.

They said their hellos, and AK soon found out that the cousin was actually working as a personal assistant of AK’s childhood best friend, whom AK knows is now a famous actor! To make the long story short he was able to meet his childhood best friend. He never thought that he will meet his childhood best friend again, and since his childhood best friend has since then become a famous actor he never expected that this will still remember him or still want him to become his friend.

When his childhood best friend who is now an actor learned about his plight, he decided to hire AK and gave him a much higher salary. He also gave AK approximately Php 60,000.00 to help him start his micro business, which is a food cart business. AK then called on another brother to come to Manila to help take care of the micro business while he works for his friend.

Now, AK believes that it was the Vajrapani Ruel that paved the way for him to have the luck of reconnecting with his childhood best friend who now happens to be a very rich and famous actor. This reconnecting then paved the way for him to get money luck / wealth luck / financial luck that he needs.

By the way, for AK what sort of sealed the belief that it was the Vajrapani Ruel that created that miracle is the fact that he later found out from his best friend that the original location of their ‘taping’ is not really at the eatery where AK frequents, but because of a problem of a previous location the production team had to change and immediately look for a new location and has fate or Vajrapani Bodhisattva thru the Vajrapani Ruel would have it, it happened to be at the eatery where AK eats.

AK said while he still has a long way to becoming totally financially stable, he can see that he is on his way there.

Auralite: A Gift Of Light From A Reader

Published Enero 21, 2015 by jptan2012

Today, I would like to share with you about a gift I received from a reader and friend. For those who have been reading my blog for quite some time, you might remember me talking about Atty. B, who happens to be one of the readers I can consider that has become a friend, although we seldom get to talk with each other.

Even if we don’t get to email or send each other text messages, I would always think of Atty. B from time to time. The first time I met Atty. B, he strikes me as a very serious student of Buddhism and Feng Shui. What I mean is he goes beyond delving into Buddhism or Feng Shui simply because he aspires for material growth. True enough, after several months of not being able to talk with each other, I think, maybe even a year, I found out that he has gathered enough good karma to meet his own guru. The particular lama that he met is in fact Filipino, so he need not go through the hassle of translating what is being said.auralite

I was fortunate enough to have been gifted by Atty. B with an Auralite. I feel so blessed that he was kind enough to give it to me as a gift, and what’s more I received it at a time when I needed healing. I’m not an expert on Auralite, but I know that an Auralite has the capability to extend physical and auric healing.

If you wish to know more about the Auralite, all you have to do is simply Google it. However, this is what I found on the website called THE AURA CHAKRA COMPANY:

Auralite 23 Crystals are about 1.2 BILLION Years old, having being formed during the Meso-proterozoic age, at the time, when multicellular creatures, first emerged and began to flourish.

It has been said, that Meteoric impacts during this time, brought rare metallic ores to the surface, where they eventually dissolves and were incorporated into the structure of the growing Amethyst Crystal, now called Auralite.

Because of the sheer amount of elements and minerals found in the crystal, it is like a bridge to the divine, helping you to connect easier with your guides and Angels, and also bringing a calmness to your life, that you never felt possible before. It will also teach you the best things about yourself, and also show you where you may be going wrong.

Auralite enhances healing, personal development and intuition extensively and on many levels and can really only be appreciated once it’s been held.

Auralite-23 Properties:

REMOVES the ‘ticking clock’, replacing it with space to breathe and relax, bringing opportunity for inner solitude.

TONES DOWN anger and cools hot tempers, it teaches the being to think before speaking or acting for the self, and towards others. Also this is a stone that can help to remove prejudice and unnecessary judgment.

TEACHES of making good use of knowledge, and integrating it into needful areas of the self, and into life itself.

BOOSTS communications and connections of the Angel awareness, as it is a stone that has an open channel to the Angelic Realms.

ALLEVIATES tension, headaches, eyestrain; muscle discomfort and muscle spasms. It can also be of help to vascular health, bringing an improved function and healing.

SOOTHES nerves and anxiety, as well as helping to lower the trigger of panic attacks or to bring comfort during times of shock and distress.

CURES sleep disorders that are closely related to Insomnia, or where it is Insomnia alone, with no known cause.

SUPPORTS during meditation, astral travel, past life regression, and to the being that connect with spirit for the help of the self and of others.

CONNECTS to its keeper like a twin spirit. This stone teaches, “All is as One”, reminding of how alike one-another is to each other despite outer differences.auralite2

You see it’s a very powerful crystal and receiving it as a gift, while doesn’t make it more powerful, gives it a good chi from the generosity of the giver. I’m just so happy to have my very first Auralite.

More than that, in a span of a week, I received 2 gifts from my readers. One if this gift from Atty. B, and another one is from a reader in Singapore. I shall write about her AC’s gift in my succeeding posts.

For now, thanks a lot Atty. B!!!!

Clarifications on the Post About the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published Hunyo 20, 2014 by jptan2012

I know that the information shared on this blog the other day about the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde entitled – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE – & – PROTECT YOURSELF FROM THE ILL EFFECTS OF THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE – can be a little overwhelming for a lot of you. Almost immediately I was bombarded by literally hundreds of emails, which I really haven’t read. On top of that, there were also an overwhelming number of sms that was sent to me, not to mention several phone calls.

I thought it is only appropriate to clarify something for everybody’s better understanding of the topic.

First, Mercury Retrograde is as mentioned a Western Astrology concept, I’m not an expert and I don’t have mastery of the said topic, however, I know it to be true because:

  1. I know that Western Astrology to be true. Before I dwelt on Feng Shui and Chinese Astrology, Western Astrology was my first interest. My personal bias is that Chinese Astrology is more accurate but it doesn’t change the fact that Western Astrology has some basis.
  2. Mercury Retrograde is a concept that I have read before. In fact, several years back. There are also some famous people who have claimed that they experienced Mercury Retrograde and that it has affected their relationship and work. Some of these people are Ronald Reagan, Cameron Mackintosh, Shirley Maclaine, etc.
  3. The few times I got to meet some reputable Astrologer, this is something that we’ve discussed. And they are all in agreement that this is true.
  4. Particularly this year, when June set in a lot of people have been complaining to me about their relationship problems and communication problems, which prompted me to do more research about this topic.
  5. I believe that it is stronger this year because of several factors that may affect it to become stronger. This is just theory and I didn’t included in the first two article because it is quite difficult for me to substantiate this, but the stronger Hungry Ghost Month this year might be making Mercury Retrograde stronger also.

Second, the stronger Hungry Ghost Month phenomenon is not something new. Although rare it has been known to happen. And it is different from what happened last year, because last year we had a triple whammy, but this year it is simply stronger Hungry Ghost Month that we have to deal with it, and because it is stronger, it also extends itself. As mentioned, I’ve consulted other Feng Shui experts, particularly my teachers; most of them agree that this is indeed the case. However, I would like to clarify that there is one particular Feng Shui expert that said that they (group that she works with) are not sure whether this is an interpretation concern. Meaning, they saw it but they seem to think that this is still subject to further discussion. They are drawing their unclear stand from the ‘Double Negative Theory’; this theory states that in some aspects of Feng Shui a double negative may be a positive sign.

Third, regarding the cures for the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde, I would like to reiterate that something is still way better than nothing at all.prayer

Lastly, we should not under estimate the power of a prayer. In fact, if you look at the suggested cure, a lot of it is drawing power or protection from Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and sutras (Buddhist holy texts that are considered prayer books) and mantras, which is a form of praying. On top of this, I personally believe is also going to create some form of protection. Do good deeds, help people, help people you know, but more than that help people that you don’t know. Do something that is beyond what is JUST COMFORTABLE. The positive energy created by a very good deed is a very powerful protection, and remember a good deed is not measure by how many people you help or by how much you spent. A good deed is measured by sincerity, the amount of compassion you have, and how much of you was shared.

Protect Yourself from the Ill Effects of the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month and Mercury Retrograde

Published Hunyo 18, 2014 by jptan2012

In my previous post – WHAT EVERYONE NEEDS TO KNOW ABOUT THE 2014 HUNGRY GHOST MONTH AND MERCURY RETROGRADE, I talked about how the combined effect of the annual and monthly flying stars and of the annual and monthly Bazi or Paht Chee are making this year’s Hungry Ghost Month so much stronger that its effects will be felt 15 days before the first day of the Hungry Ghost month which is on July 27, 2014 up to 15 days after its supposed last day which is August 24, 2014. This phenomenon is made worse with the last Mercury Retrograde periods of the year sandwiching this year’s Hungry Ghost month, leaving us with about 5 challenging months in succession.

Photo uploaded from Google Images

At the start of the year, a lot of Feng Shui writers and consultants talked about how the first part of the year will show an abundance of luck for most people, and how towards the end of the year it will get depleted. This was obvious on the year’s Paht Chee chart; but nowhere was a definitive explanation of the cause discussed. It is actually only by accident that I came across a possible explanation. I believe the effects of both Mercury Retrograde and the particularly strong Hungry Ghost Month of the year occurring in succession explains why the energy of the year gets depleted towards the end of the year.

As mentioned in my previous blog post, as I wanted to validate my reading of the year’s annual and monthly flying stars and Paht Chee charts especially in relation to the year’s Hungry Ghost Month, I decided to call first my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong, and my Guru Lama in Singapore. Both of them confirmed the said phenomenon. After writing the previous blog post, and just before writing this one, I decided to call another Feng Shui teacher from Beijing, China, and he also confirmed the said phenomenon. Lastly, I was also able to discuss the matter with other Feng Shui consultants, who likewise acknowledged the phenomenon. Certain experts, however, are not sure whether they will be discussing it through any of their avenues because of two reasons: (1) they are not sure whether the effects are in fact going to be really bad (this goes into interpretations of the resulting calculations) and (2) if in fact the effects will be very bad, they are not sure whether remedies exist to successfully counter the effects.

In the course of writing this entry, I decided to call another Feng Shui teacher. This particular Feng Shui teacher practices Transcendental Feng Shui, which is also known as Spiritual or Third Dimension Feng Shui. Like the other Feng Shui experts that I consulted, he acknowledges the said phenomenon and like my Guru Lama he believes that we can do something about it.

Before I go into discussing how one can protect oneself from this phenomenon, let me explain that the recommendations below are an aggregation of the different recommendations that I gathered from my Guru Lama, Feng Shui teachers, and a few of my own recommendations based on my own experience. Also, it would be of course best if you follow all the recommendations; and, needless to state, following some is better than following none of them. I would also like to point out that it was a reader who since then has become a good friend, DU, who pointed out this direction of how to remedy this phenomenon.

Always have with you the following:

  1. Kuan Yin pendant, preferably with a sutra.
    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.

    Back image of the Kuan Yin pendant. This is the reason why I love these pendants is because they have very nicely crafted image of Kuan Yin pouring healing and auspicious from her magical vase, and at the back it has the Heart Sutra. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to look for this kind of Kuan Yin pendant.

    Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to look for this kind of Kuan Yin pendant.

  2. Chong Kwei (also spelled as Chung Kwei) or Mahakala (a wrathful image of Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin) pendant. To be honest I’ve been looking for a Mahakala pendant and I’m unable to find one. For this year, according to my Guru Lama, Mahakala is preferred but no one can deny the efficacy of a Chong Kwei pendant during the Hungry Ghost month. Please take into consideration that he may be partial to Mahakala because he is a Buddhist Lama and Chong Kwei is of a Taoist lineage. Your Chong Kwei should be made of a black stone or gold.

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

  4. Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva pendant.

    From my personal collection. A rare Red Amber Ksitigarbha.  Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to get a Ksitigarbha pendant unless you're from Malaysia, Hong Kong, or Singapore.

  5. Wear or carry a Prayer Wheel and spin it as often as you can.
  6. Medicine Buddha pendant or simply carry a Medicine Buddha sutra.
  7. Always carry a Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras or Lama Atisha Amulet with you at all times.

    I decided to put THE FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS inside a test tube type glass holder that I bought in The Bead Shop, then I included the incense ash, Pink Himalayan Salt inside before sealing it. Thank you to DU, a reader and friend who took this photo.

At home and in the office you should have the following:

  1. Figurine of Kuan Yin.
  2. Figurine of Mahakala or Chong Kwei.

    This is an image of a Mahakala, the wrathful form of Avalokitesvara or Kuan Yin. Wrathful form doesn't mean that they are really angry, it means that they are largely use for protection.  This photo was uploaded from Google images.

  3. Figurine of Medicine Buddha or Kuan Kong. These two are optional.
  4. Figurine of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva. It may be pretty difficult to get a figurine of Ksitgarbha Bodhisattva. What you can do instead is print his image, laminate it and put it on your altar. If you don’t have an altar, put them where the other images are.

    In looking for an image of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva either as a pendant or a figurine for your home, you will come across with two versions, the one with the 'Amitabha' hat and the one where He is not wearing any hat and shows his bald head. I prefer the one with the hat, because the one where He is bald is usually associated with the spirits of the dead and connotes that he hasn't attain His Buddhahood.

  5. Put Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras or Lama Atisha Amulet on all the doors and windows of your house that are facing the perimeter of your house (living quarters). If you find it difficult to find these, then the second best option would be to use Kalachakra stickers.
  6. Put a small bowl of rock salt in all the rooms of your house.
  7. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: FIX ALL THE FENG SHUI ERRORS OF YOUR HOUSE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE THE YIN EFFECTS OF ALL THESE FENG SHUI ERRORS ARE MULTIPLIED.
  8. Play mantras in all the rooms if possible.

 

Do the following ‘rituals’:

  1. From July 12, 2014 to Sept. 8, 2014, chant, DAILY, 10 full malas of OM MANI PADME HUM, 10 full malas of the Medicine Buddha Mantra – TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA, and 100 full malas of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva’s mantra. He has several and you can choose which of the following are you more comfortable with:
    1. OM PRA MANI DANI SOHA
    2. OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM
    3. NAMO DI ZHANG WANG PUSA
    4. NAMO KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA
  2. Recite both the Wish Fulfilling and Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra.
  3. Do the usual rituals for the Hungry Ghost Month that I’ve written about in the past.
  4. Try to make offerings at the temple or church or give to charity as often as you can.
  5. In reciting the mantra of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, it will be better if you gaze upon his image.
  6. Light some incense and read the following sutras as often as you can – MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA and KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA SUTRA, which is known as THE SUTRA OF PAST VOWS OF THE EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA. The sutra of the Medicine Buddha is in a blog post that I wrote about Him. Please see link below. If you want a downloadable PDF file of the Sutra of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, please click Earth Store Bodhisattva and KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA SUTRA. The two versions are basically the same but slightly differ in the way it was translated. One of the difference is that in one of them Shakyamuni Buddha is simply called Buddha, which is is the more common term in addressing Shakyamuni Buddha is most of the Sutra translations. This is because it is widely accepted that all sutras that we have now are from the time of Shakyamuni Buddha. A sutra is basically a prayer and word of Buddha written in a story or conversation format.
  7. Avoid the usual things that one should avoid during the Hungry Ghost Month.

For the Mercury Retrograde periods (June 7- July 1; October 4 – 25), wear an image of Kuan Kong or Kalachakra, and if possible, wear or carry with you a Prayer Wheel and spin it as often as you can.

Optional for July 12 to Sept. 8 is also to wear the script of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra and the Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra.

There are a lot of things mentioned on this post that for some might be hard to understand. For example what really is Hungry Ghost Month, which I didn’t discuss in detail in these 2 posts about the 2014 Hungry Ghost Month, or about Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva, Kuan Yin, four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras, etc. I humbly suggest for you to read some of my previous posts to make you understand things that were discussed here better, or why were such items recommended as a cure.
