Some Basic Questions About the Hungry Ghosts and the Hungry Ghost Month Answered (3): What to Do When a Loved One or A Relative Dies on a Hungry Ghost Month?

Published Setyembre 6, 2017 by jptan2012

Death is always perceived as something negative. But the truth is sometimes death is actually good, because sometimes this means that a person can reincarnate into a better life.

However, if there is a death that one want’s to avoid is death in the evening and death during the Hungry Ghost Month. In this article we will solely talk about death during the Hungry Ghost Month.

First, if you are not familiar with what is Hungry Ghost Month, I suggest you read first the articles with links and titles found below this article.

Hungry Ghost Month is considered one of the worst seasons of the year, with its highlight on the day of the Hungry Ghost Festival, which is on the 15th day of the 7th lunar month. Hungry Ghost Month is the whole of the 7th lunar month. People are warned to take extra care and not take unnecessary trips and activities. One of the most important things that a Chinese takes caution of is going to the hospital or a funeral during this month.

I remember when I was young when a sister of my grandmother is really ill and her family was praying for her early demise out of compassion and pity so that she will not longer suffer. However, she lives on for a few months until during the Hungry Ghost Month there was sign that she was about expire. And so this time her family started praying that she live until after Hungry Ghost Month. This scene might be a little comical but if you are familiar how much negative energies goes around during Hungry Ghost Month you will understand why this is no laughing matter.

Buddhist and Taoist believes that when a person dies during Hungry Ghost Month this is surely a sign that this death was caused by the Hungry Ghost, with the exception of those who passed away between 5AM and 9AM, unless of course the cause of death is something that is tragic or sudden.

It is said that the consciousness (soul) of the newly dead is immediately pulled into the Hungry Ghost realm because there is a very big chance that the person’s dying process was hasten because ‘misery loves company’ and so the destitute Hungry Ghosts will try to pull a sick person’s soul so that they can have a surge of yang energy provided by the dying person.

Also when a death occurs on a Hungry Ghost Month, it usually means there are 2 more following that death, this 2 usually happens within a year of the death of the first one. And more often that not, the first death will also cause tremendous bad luck to the family.

So what to do if somebody dies within the Hungry Ghost Month?

  1. Go to a Buddhist temple and have a special puja done for the person for 49 days.
  2. Go vegetarian for 49 days.

 

If the above remedy is not possible, do the following instead:

  1. Get a Vajrapani Ruel and put it on the body or on the casket of the dead person all throughout the wake.
  2. Better to cremate the body.
  3. After the wake, get the Vajrapani Ruel and set – up a temporary altar for the person, and place a picture there and place the Vajrapani Ruel in front of the picture. Leave it there until the 49th day of the death of the person.
  4. Recite the The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata and/or Sutra-of-the-Past-Vows-of-Earth-Store-Bodhisattva once a day for 49 days.
  5. Make offerings (flowers, oil, incense, water, fruits and vegetables, money) to an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva for 49 days.

Why “Creation of Wealth”?: Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet Is An Amulet That Creates Wealth for You and Other Questions, Answered.

Published Setyembre 4, 2017 by jptan2012
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.

Barely three days since I have written about the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet and I have already been bombarded by various questions.

On this post, I will try some of your questions.

  1. How do you know that the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet is effective if it is a fairly young amulet?

 

In the Buddhist tradition, every now and then a new amulet is discovered either thru accident or thru deep meditation of high lama. My Guru Lama rediscovered the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet about 20 years ago, and yes an amulet that is only a few decades old is considered young. However, as I said, this amulet was rediscovered rather than discovered by my Guru Lama. It was in a copy of a 1,200 year old Tantric Buddhist Scripture or book called “Maha Biddhuya Vaircona Abihidisambohi Vikurvitadthisnana Vaipulya Sudrentaha Raja Nama Dharma – Paryaya”. A modern print of a copy of this book is kept in the library of their temple and when he was meditating on how to help one of his Sangha members, he under deep meditative state saw a copy of this book. When he came up of his meditation he went to get the copy of the book and read it, it took him months before he came across the initiation on how to this amulet.

The book is 1,200 years old and so the amulet or its initiation must have been at the very least also 1,200 year old.

As to the question whether it is effective, my Guru Lama first made it about 2 decades ago, and it worked for the person he made it for. He has since then made it for several other people and according to Guru Lama wit works every time.

 

  1. Why wasn’t it famous or rediscovered sooner?

 

Amulets are unique in that sense, there are a lot of amulets, and amulets will be gone and resurface again. Nobody knows the exact explanation for this but Lama Zopa Rinpoche once said that amulets sometimes come and go depending on the collective need of the people. Meaning, there are amulets that we don’t collectively need before but we collectively need now. What determines this is basically the ruling energies of the period we are in.

 

  1. How is the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet different from other amulet?

 

I have written about this in the introductory post about the amulet. But to put it simply, other amulets pull your wealth luck base on the different paths of your pre – destiny, which contrary to popular there are actually more than one path to our destiny/destinies.

Here, allow me to quote again what I have written:

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 do 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.

 

  1. What is consecrated and how is this different blessing?

 

Blessing is like asking the Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity to touch the amulet. Consecration is done with a special ritual where a high lama, and only a high lama can do this, will ask the Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity to leave an imprint of the Buddha’s (etc.) energy on the item being consecrated. There are also a limited number of items that can be consecrated. Also, although a blessing done by a monk is definitely better, all of us can do a blessing ritual, but with consecration only a high lama with the proper knowledge to do a consecration ritual can consecrate an item or amulet. Not all monks or lama can consecrate.

 

  1. Why is the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet being made available now?

 

Guru Lama felt this is the right time to make the amulet available because (1) he notice than more and more people are experiencing some financial difficulty; (2) there seems to be a pervading worldwide of energy of financial instability which is cause by different factors, one of which is also political instability.

 

  1. How can we request for the amulet?

 

Powerful and rare amulets are always difficult to come – by. In the old days, an amulet is given by the abbot to Sangha members (temple goers) who they feel are deserving of the amulet and who do work for the temple. The work may be in a form of monetary contribution, but in those times it is usually actual physical work, like helping to clean, cooking or donating vegetables and fruits. Because there must always be an exchange of energies as a representation of a person acquiring it.

These days, because of the changes in time, people are no longer to spend time in the temple to do work for them. And certainly almost nobody donates fresh fruits and vegetables. So a stipulated donation is normally requested. The said amount doesn’t come ‘cheap’ only because one in a way has to cover the cost of the materials used, the offering offered (flowers, fruits, vegetables, oil, incense, bottles of water, gold flakes, etc.) and it is customary to sort of impose that the person donate an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva for a temple. Technically speaking the amulet itself is not part of it, but there are some conditions for the exchange of energies to be fulfilled. Part of it also if for the feeding of the monks.

To understand this better please read my post called – THE EVOLUTION OF ACQUIRING AN AMULET.

 

  1. What’s inside the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet?

 

Inside the amulet are specially consecrated copies of the mantras of King Vaisravana of the Four Heavenly Kings, and of the Five Dzambhalas. Also inside are several holy ingredients in powder form. Before closing the amulet it is further consecrated the Four Heavenly Kings (to understand this better I suggest you read my post about the Four Heavenly Kings).

Putting it in a cylindrical metal holder or container is extremely important because it is specifically mentioned the initiation guidelines. This is to represent continuity and stability.

According to Guru Lama, it takes him 3 days to fully consecrate the mantras, while he can do several copies at the same time, the consecration before the closing of the amulet can only be done one at a time. Obviously, this is quite tedious so he can only make a few every now and then.

Lastly, the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet also comes with a 7 – Day ritual pack. You will have to do a short ritual everyday for 7 days before one can wear the amulet. This ritual is integral and an important part of the process for the Vaisravana – Dzambhala Wealth Amulet reach it’s full potential in creating your wealth luck or in pulling your wealth luck.

Feng Shui Tips to Enhance Wealth Luck, Financial Luck, and Money Luck!

Published Abril 7, 2017 by jptan2012

Last January 25, 2012 I wrote a post called FENG SHUI TIPS TO ENHANCE WEALTH LUCK! – Little did I know that it’ll become a constant most read article from the time it was written to this day, weirdly surpassed only by two other articles, namely:

I can understand why people would like the MYTH BUSTER 5 article, but I didn’t realize that a lot of people have been encountering bats.

Anyway, if you notice, what I wrote before is an article about increasing wealth luck. In this article, I will talk about wealth luck and financial luck. So what is the difference? Wealth luck refers more to more than just finances or financial. It refers to properties or even other aspects of getting rich. Financial luck refers to finances, it may be liquid or not. Money luck simply refers to money on hand.

You will notice that this article is going to be mostly a repeat of previous articles but more than that I have updated it and included more tips. You might also see yourself getting directed to older articles, this is when I need to manage the length of this article and will not have time to explain everything here.

When people found out that I studied Feng Shui and do Feng Shui consulting and audit on the side, they always ask me as to how can they enhance their wealth luck. Again, this is a question that can be fully answered by looking at the Bazi (also called Paht Chee, Four Pillars, Eight Characters) chart of the person. The Bazi is basically a formula wherein you look at the luck potential of a person by looking at their birth date and time.

Sometimes, there are specific wealth or financial or money amulet for a person depending on what the Bazi chart showed. However, there are some Buddhist or Taoist amulets that helps enhance wealth, financial, and money luck. Furthermore, there are Feng Shui symbols that will surely do the same.

Here are some of my favorite wealth, financial, and money luck enhancers…

VAJRAPANI RUEL

Lately, one of the Buddhist amulets that have the highest personal miraculous testimonies that have to do with enhancing wealth luck or financial luck or money is the controversial Vajrapani Ruel. I say that it is controversial because other than being considered as the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, I think it is also one of the most attacked amulet, but the testimonies speaks for it self.

Here are just some of the more astounding and most read stories of the Vajrapani Ruel shared by my readers.

Please note that the Vajrapani Ruel although has a very high rate of money, financial, or wealth luck enhancement capabilities, it is still largely a protective amulet. But you will also find that it has a wish fulfilling capabilities.

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.

SURANGAMA MANTA AMULET

Although this amulet doesn’t enjoy as many personal testimonies as the Vajrapani Ruel, you will find that several readers still did experienced some wonderful financial luck stories about it. In fact, one of my readers said that she finds the Surangama Mantra Amulet better than the Vajrapani Ruel. You can read the story separately by clicking on the link below.

TRADITIONAL SUTRA AMULET (TSA)

THREE-LEGGED TOAD

The three-legged toad is one of the oldest and most powerful Feng Shui wealth charm or enhancer. However, for some time it was quite forgotten until Lillian Too of World of Feng Shui popularized it again.

My personal experience with the three-legged toad is simply astounding. However, what I want to share with you right now is about a friend’s experience with the three-legged toad. She asked me as to what can enhance her financial luck. After looking at her chart, I saw that her wealth luck is already ripe, but for some reason it hasn’t manifested yet. In fact, she’s currently in dire financial problem. I told her to get a three-legged toad. Furthermore, I gave her a three-legged toad pendant, and 2 months after she got the pendant and the three-legged toads, which she displayed in her house, she won the grand jackpot prize of the 6/42 lotto (in the Philippines). She won more than 4 million pesos! She swears it’s because of the three-legged toad…and I fully agree.

In getting the three-legged toad, please make sure that you place it adjacent to your front door. You can 3, 6, or 9 or more as long as it’s divisible by 3. Make sure that you have one toad facing the door and the other facing inside the house. Just scatter them on the floor; it can be under your table or chair. Never put the three-legged toad on the table they should always be on the floor and make sure that they all have a coin in their mouth!

Wearing a three legged toad pendant is also very auspicious!

You also might want to get to know more about the 3 – Legged Toad from Liu Hai. In a post called: An Unknown But Powerful Taoist Deity Called Liu Hai.

Three Legged Toad

The 3-Legged Toad. Please make sure when buying this you choose a three legged toad, there are some who sells the image of the frog. It’s not the same. It has to be the three-legged toad and choose the one with a coin in its mouth.

SAILING SHIPS

This is also one of the most powerful wealth charm or enhancer. You can place this on your sheng chi direction and or at the entrance of your house, store, or office. But please make sure that it’s ‘going in’ and not ‘going out’. You can also add some lucky coins on the ship.

However, I need to stress that if your element in your Bazi chart is really high in water or a weak fire, the Sailing Ship may not be the best wealth enhancer for you.

I recommended this to a friend whose retail store is just breaking even. He’s not making any money. After placing the Sailing Ship in his store, his sales started increasing. In fact, he now has 3 other stores.

Feng Shui Sailing Ship

In choosing a sailign ship, it would be better if it’s made of metal and colored in gold. Please make sure also that it’s going in and not out.

THE AUSPICIOUS WEALTH VASE

This is another powerful wealth enhancer. In fact, when I went to China, I realized that a lot of my wealthier relatives have wealth vases in their house. Yes, they keep not just one but several. One of my distant uncle has one in his living room, another one in the kitchen, one for each of the bedrooms, so not surprisingly, he also the wealthiest of my relatives in China.

The wealth vase is also both a Taoist and Buddhist wealth enhancer. In fact, to this day you’ll see Buddhist temples doing wealth vase blessings or wealth vase ceremonies.

In preparing a wealth vase you’ll need the following:

Any auspicious looking vase with a big mouth and a large body. It should have a cover also.

Five different cloths that can cover the head of the Vase. The colors should be white (metal), red (fire), blue (water), yellow (earth), green (wood). They represent the five elements.

Five different strings also representing the 5 elements.

3 different beans or grains. (E.g. Coffee bean, Red Bean, Rice Grain)

Whole Tea Leaves

Salt

Sugar

Three different candies or preserved fruits (no menthol).

Soil (preferably from a rich man that you admire).

Money – Five different denominations. (Preferably you ask this from the rich people that you admire.)

Picture of 3 different rich people.

Picture of your dream house.

Picture of your dream car.

Faux diamond or other semi precious stone.

Faux gold coins, ingots, bars.

Incense.

Image or Statuette of a Deity (Guan Gong, Sun Wukong (Monkey G0d), Tua Peh Kong, Dzambhala). They should be made of metal.

Wealth Amulets from a Taoist temple. (Optional)

First you place the soil at the bottom of the vase, followed by the tea leaves, grains, fruit preserves or candies, salt, sugar, picture of the dream house, dream car, wealth people, and then the money.

Put the wealth deity on top of the money. Take note where it’s facing and consider it as the front side of the wealth vase. Make a mark so you don’t forget.

Then fill the wealth vase with faux gems, gold (coins, ingots, bars) and all the other ‘ingredients’. Once they filled place the Taoist wealth amulets. Then cover with the lid. Place the 5 different cloths on top of the lid. Yellow first, followed by white, followed by blue, and then followed by green, then red. Then tie it with the five different color strings.

Place your wealth vase inside the cabinet to keep it hidden. Make sure that the deity inside is not facing out of the house but rather he should be facing in, thus you need to make a mark.

Wealth Vase

The Wealth Vase is used by a lot of Chinese to tap into their wealth luck. In fact, if you go to a house of a wealthy person in China, most likely they’ll have a wealth vase hidden somewhere in their house.

FAUX GOLD BARS OR INGOTS

If you were just building your house, it would be great if you can bury 168 pieces of faux gold coins under your main entrance. By doing this you literally walk on them every time you enter your house, thus you seem like ‘walking on money’. Also, you can put 21 pieces of this faux coins at all the entrance of the bedrooms of your house. You can also put 21 pieces of this faux gold coins under your bed.

You can also litter faux gold coins or faux gold ingots at different parts and corners of your house. This is to signify ‘money everywhere’.

goldgold-ingots-coins-bars2-400x300

Faux golld bars, ingots, and coins.

WEAR AN IMAGE OF A BUDDHA, BODHISATTVA, DEITY, DRAGON, OR TAOIST GODS

Another powerful wealth enhancer is the wearing of the different images of wealth deity. This is better if the pendant is made of gold, because for the Chinese gold is considered as the ultimate symbol of wealth and is also very auspicious.

Some of the suggested deity pendants are the image of KUAN YIN, GUAN GONG (KUAN KONG), DZAMBHALA, MAITREYA BUDDHA (also known as THE HAPPY FAT BUDDHA), and SUN WUKONG.

SALT IN THE WALLET.

Another way of creating good wealth luck is to always have a small packet of sea or rock salt in our wallet. Salt is a great chi cleanser, and having this in our pocket helps enhance wealth/money luck.sea-salt

PUT A WEALTH SIGN OR WEALTH SYMBOL AS WALLPAPER ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE.

Feng Shui is all about symbolism, and putting a symbol of wealth as a wallpaper of your mobile phone helps a little in giving our wealth luck a little boost. You can use either of the following: three legged toad, pictures of gold bars, gold ingots and/or different currencies.

PUT THE WISH FULFILLING MANTRA AS WALLPAPER ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE

I’ve talked about the WISH FULFILLING MANTRA and the power of MANTRA in my previous posts. Putting the symbolic script of the Wish Fulfilling Mantra on your mobile phone helps in actualizing your wealth luck wishes.

WEAR A NINE-EYE DZI BEAD.

A DZI bead is a special Tibetan bead that is suppose to have come from heaven. The DZI beads available in the market now are not original but they work as well. Wearing a 9-eye DZI bead either as a pendant or as a bracelet creates a lot of wealth luck. Strung this with real citrine beads and a jade Piyao (Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pixie, Pixie) to further enhance its energies.citrine dzi piyao

WEAR A GOLD OR JADE PIYAO

A Piyao (or Pi Yao, Pixiu, Pi Xiu, Pi Xie, Pixie) is not only a good amulet to appease Tai Suey, but it is also a very good wealth enhancer.

WEAR AN IMAGE OF LIU HAI

It is said that only Liu Hai can manage the three – legged toad, which makes him an excellent wealth enhancer Taoist deity. You can read more about him on an article I have written about him before.

ALWAYS HAVE THE 8 NATURAL WEALTH AND FINANCIAL EHANCER INGREDIENTS AT HOME.

There are some very simple ingredients that we can find at home that can help enhance our wealth and financial luck. You can find the list by clicking here.

LEARN HOW TO USE CITRINE WATER OR CRYSTAL GRID

Citrine is one of the most powerful wealth luck, or money luck, or financial luck enhancer. Learn how to do them by reading the following articles:

Lastly, there is one thing that a lot of us forget. To help enhance wealth luck, financial luck, or money luck, remember that RECEIPTS IN THE WALLET/POCKET CREATE BAD MONEY FENG SHUI. Most of us tend to keep receipts in our wallet or pocket and just forget about it. In fact, it is not surprising that some of us may have some receipts in our wallet that’s been there for months or years. However, you should note that keeping a receipt in your wallet or pocket might create slight bad money Feng Shui. It signifies that you always have bills to pay.

And if you feel that everything is good with you, sustain it with Red and Gold. Learn more about it by clicking here.

A Fruit Can Be A Vehicle of A Curse or An Hex!

Published Marso 6, 2017 by jptan2012

Whenever I see the fairy tale Snow White where in the evil witch put the curse or poison on the apple to make Snow White sleep, I always thought how close it could be to real life.

You see, fruits with seeds, especially if they are black seeds can be a vehicle for sorcery to enter your house. I’m not saying we should not eat fruits, all I’m saying is that we have to be careful from whom do we receive our fruits from.apple

I thought of writing this because of several of my readers who experienced receiving some hex through fruits given to them or their staff.

I won’t be able to tell you the exact stories because I was not able to ask permission from them that I would be writing their story down.

But you see, a good sorcerer can put a hex in the seed of a fruit without them breaking the fruit. Remember, the fruit itself is not the vehicle but rather the seed, but to bring the seed in to your house, they will need to give you the whole fruit. It is more likely that when you eat the fruit, the seeds will still stay inside the house for a few more days. This is when the hex is release inside your house, when you finish eating the fruits. papaya

Three of my readers have experienced this; one of them had a fight with her mother’s cousin about a property. After several years of a court battle, they seem to be winning the court case, when the mom’s cousin decided to make peace with her. They were quite surprise with her act because it was out of her character and she was quite clear that she will not settle. Although they were a little surprise, they thought it is better to make amends. And so when she sent them a basket of fruits, they accepted and reciprocated by sending a cake. Although at that time the mom’s cousin said that they should delay a case and come up with a more appropriate resolution for both parties. They agreed.

However, that’s when the horror started, her kids started to get sick, one of them was in and out of the hospital without a clear diagnosis as to what is causing his illness. Her husband seems to have hit a bad luck and lost his job. Soon they were in debt, and the cousin of the mom suggested that they just sell the property to help them in their finances. They felt it was a very sound advice.  But one of her friend suggested that she consult me first, she did. I then in turn consulted my Guru Lama about her case, and it was there that we found out that a hex was put on them.

I wasn’t aware of the fruit given to them, and she didn’t mention it to me, she has almost forgotten about it. But my Guru Lama saw that she was given a fruit and I asked her about it, that’s when she remembered that she was given a basket of fruits (apples, oranges, mangoes and lanzones)!

It is very possible that the hex was put in the seeds!

As a cure, my Guru Lama suggested that she get the Vajrapani Ruel and for all of them to take some salt bath. That was 3 months ago, and she said they didn’t sell the property and they’re back in court with the mom’s cousin. But everything is starting to get better with them again!

‘Welcome the Spring Season’ Ritual to Invite Wealth Luck!

Published Pebrero 2, 2017 by jptan2012

Today my Guru Lama wants me to share with you a simple but important ritual to welcome the spring season that will greatly enhance your wealth luck. The Huan Ing Chun Tien ritual is a ritual that can be done only in years that the Lunar New Year happens before Spring comes in, which is the case for this year.

The first thing you should do is found out your Chinese birthday / Lunar birthday.

To do this you can log on to the Chinese Gender Chart website (please just click on the link and it will land you on the page of Calendar converter) or Hong Kong Observatory site (again just click on the link). Then check your corresponding birthdate. For the Chinese Gender Chart site you will have to input your birthdate. With the other one you have to select the year and it will open a pdf form and you will just check their chart.

PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS POSSIBLE FOR PEOPLE BORN IN JANUARY TO EARLY FEBRUARY TO HAVE THEIR YEAR OF BIRTH CHANGED INTO THE PREVIOUS YEAR. THIS IS BECAUSE LUNAR CALENDAR IS ALWAYS GOING TO BE DELAYED A FEW MONTHS.

After getting your lunar birthdate, count your SHENG HAO. You do this by adding all the corresponding number of your birthdate until you get one digit.

  • For example your lunar birthdate is 11 (Month) – 29 (Day) – 1992 (Year).
  • Take the month first 1 + 1 = 2.
  • Then the day 2 + 9 = 11 (because you ended up with a 2 digit add it up again until you get a single digit so 1 +1 = 2).
  • Then the year 1 + 9 + 9 + 2 = 21 (again you get two digits so add it up again until you get a single digit so 2 +1 = 3.
  • Then use the month digit and multiply it with the day digit so 2 x 2 = 4.
  • Then add the year digit add to the combined single digit of the month and day to the year digit so 4 + 3 = 7. This becomes your Sheng Hao. If you come up with a two digit add it again so you get a single digit.

 

Then prepare the following things that you will need:

  1. Bouquet of flowers (no thorns). If using roses make sure that all the thorns are taken out.
  2. Three Kinds of Fruit. I suggest the following: 5 pieces Apple, 5 pieces Oranges, 1 piece of Pineapple / 1 piece of Pomelo / 1 bunch of Grapes.
  3. Red and Green Shirt.
  4. Prepare a big Ang Pao (Red Envelope) with a single bill. Any amount will do. It can be a one-dollar bill. Here in the Philippines it can be one twenty – peso bill. Preferably put a new bill, something that is still crisp.
  5. Also put inside the Ang Pao one piece about 2×2 red paper, 2×2 green paper and 2×2 yellow paper.
  6. If your Sheng Hao is odd number (1, 3, 5, 7, 9) prepare three RED votive candles for offering. If your Sheng Hao is an even number (2, 4, 6, 8) prepare one RED votive candle for offering. Make sure it is a small glass so that the wax wouldn’t drip on the table.
  7. Small bottled water corresponding to the number of your Sheng Hao.

 

On Feb. 4, 2017 before 9 in the morning. Go to the temple wearing a red shirt (if your Sheng Hao is odd number) or green shirt (if your Sheng Hao is even number). Bring the other shirt with you as well as all the things that you prepared.

Go to a Buddhist temple. Place the fruits and flowers on the table before the image of Buddha or a Bodhisattva.

In the same manner, place the bottled water, all the Ang Pao(s), the extra shirt and the votive candles on the table.

Then light 3 incense sticks. Kneel in front of the image and say: I REQUEST ALL THE BUDDHAS AND BODHISATTVAS TO PLEASE BRING ME THE BLESSING OF   AN ABUNDANT SPRING AND AN ABUNDANT YEAR.

Then put the incense sticks on the incense burner.

Then if the temple will allow you to light and leave the votive candle light the candles.

Then bow to the image 3x.

Then get the Ang Pao, the bottled waters and the shirt. Leave the flowers and fruit.

If the temple doesn’t allow lighting of votive candles inside, then get the candles also.

When you get to the office or home. Take off the shirt you’re wearing and then wear the other shirt. Light the votive candles.

And throughout the day give the Ang Pao and bottled water to people around you. Any person can receive your Ang Pao and bottled water, but it is better to choose people who have serve you or worked with you or somehow had been a blessing to you the past years.

All the signs with the exception of the Rat can do this ritual. The rat can’t do this because of a conflict in element formation of the bazi chart / paht chee chart of the day.

This is highly recommended for people born under the sign of the Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Rooster, and Dog. For the 56 – year – old who has weak wealth luck this year, this is going to be a good ritual to do to help enhance your wealth luck.

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

Published Enero 31, 2017 by jptan2012

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Let Us All Pray for Peace and Protection for the Philippines and Asia!

Published Hulyo 15, 2016 by jptan2012

The Philippines is currently in a very volatile situation, we just won the in the international court in The Hague, and while there is much reason to celebrate; the country was also put in a compromising situation. Why? Because China is a big bully and it is clear that they won’t honor the ruling and in fact has already called it null and void. The Philippines interim Department of Foreign Affairs secretary, Perfecto Yasay, who was involve in a controversy when he was still a SEC Chairman, has acknowledge this but unfortunately he has offered a less appealing ‘solution’ which earned him the ire of many Filipinos.

I will no longer go into the details of the matter. Simply Google it and you would know what is the case all about. Whether it is called South China Sea or West Philippine Sea, one thing is clear, the country is in a volatile situation at the moment. Worst situation is go into war, and while other countries has started to show their support by sending forces in the country, when China declares war with us and if with our without allies it is going to be a delicate and precarious situation with us.

It is because of this I strongly urge all my readers to please pray for the Philippines and the Southeast Asian countries. Please pray the following mantras everyday, 108 times a day each mantra, for the next 6 months:

  1. OM AMI DEWA HRIH
  2. OM MUNI MUNI MAHĀ MUNI YE SOHA
  3. TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA
  4. OM MANI PADME HUM
  5. OM MAITRI MAHĀ MAITRI MAITREYA SOHA
  6. OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM
  7. OM TARE TUTTARE TURE MAMA AYUR PUNYE JNANA PUSHTIM KURU SOHA
  8. OM VAJRAPANI HUM
  9. OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT
  10. TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHNISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NI SOHA

Then you can recite the following sutras everyday also:

  1. The Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra
  2. The Diamond SutraEarth Store Bodhisattva Sutra
  3. The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata or Medicine Sutra

Lastly, you can also offer oil, flowers, light (candle or synthetic), fruits and vegetables to images of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas for peace and protection.

Dedicate all the merits of these deeds to the protection of the Philippines and SEA and also for peace.

Furthermore, those who have the Vajrapani Ruel, which is regarded as the most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, or the Surangama Mantra Amulet can help by putting the Vajrapani Ruel on top of the Philippines in a printed map, and the Surangama (also spelled as Shurangama) Mantra Amulet at center of Asia.
