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.

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.

  3. Kalachakra pendant, preferably made of gold or jade or clear quartz.
  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.

    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.
