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.

A Hungry Ghost Haunting and the Power of Chung Kwei!

Published Agosto 22, 2017 by jptan2012

Today, allow me to share with you a story about a former colleague who was being haunted only during the Hungry Ghost Month. The weird thing about this is that she is not Chinese and was not even familiar with the concept of Hungry Ghost Month, and mind you this happened more than 15 years ago when Filipinos might have heard of Feng Shui but are not aware of the Hungry Ghost Month or Ghost Month.

After not seeing Joyce for about a couple of years I suddenly got a call from her. She said she got my number from another former colleague and that she was not aware that I’m familiar with Feng Shui. She also said that it was another former colleague who told her to give me a call to ask for help. I have written about this colleague and he is the one who had buried dogs within their compound.

According to Joyce, once a year for several weeks she will see an image of two spirits in their house. She will see them on their window on their ground floor living room. Sometimes, they will just pass by or sometimes they seem to be looking for something. This is not something that happens everyday, but if it happens, it will happen often and will last for several weeks. She later said around 3 weeks to 5 weeks. Sometimes it will have several nights consecutively and sometimes it will happen once then several nights free of haunting then it will strike again.

There are times that when she goes home late, she will see these spirits outside their house seemingly wanting to get in. Sometimes she will see them in their garden. But she said lately (at the time that she consulted me) she sees them inside their house, and she was quite sure that those are the same spirits that haunts her every year.

She said that this has always bothered her but she cannot do anything because no one else seems able to see the spirits. And she contacted me because lately the spirits seems to be stronger and has moved inside their house. One time she saw them inside her parents’ room. Several times she saw them under the dining table, and what really scared her is that she often sees them inside her sick grandmother’s bedroom! As if this is not bothersome enough, the two spirits seems to be pulling her grandmother’s feet.

It was August when she called me and when she said that it happens only once a year for a period of several weeks, I knew then that it only happens during the Hungry Ghost Month. So I asked her whether it usually happens between July and September with slight variations. And she said yes. So it was easy to determine that those spirits were Hungry Ghosts.

I’m unable to communicate with spirits and neither am I an expert with this kind of matter. As to why they visit only during Hungry Ghost Month is obvious that they used to be humans who became Hungry Ghosts, but why that place and why are they only visible only to Joyce, that I cannot answer. However, the private nurse of Joyce’s grandmother claims that sometimes she can feel some presence in the room, and several times she seems to be awaken by something moving inside the room. Joyce’s grandmother can’t move. Several times also their house help and her mom claims to also feel some presence and sometimes they’ll hear a very faint moaning of anguish. So faint that they are not sure whether they heard something at all.

Chung Kwei Black Jade

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.

At that time the Vajrapani Ruel is not yet available, so the only thing that will definitely work for her situation is an image of Chung Kwei (also spelled as Chong Kwei, Chung Kui, Chong Kui, Zhong Kwei, Zhong Kui, Zhung Kwei, and Zhung Kui) made of high grade obsidian or gold or black jade. And so that’s what I gave her to use.

And according to Joyce since having Chung Kwei (one placed at their door and another one for her to wear) she has never seen the spirits again. That he was more than 15 years ago. To this day Joyce has kept Chung Kwei hanging in their living room and she has decided to constantly wear the her Chung Kwei pendant.

Please note that in getting a Chune Kwei it is only effective if it is made of high grade obsidian, gold, or black jade. A black tourmaline and onyx may work also. Lately there has been a proliferation of fake obsidian/onyx/black tourmaline Chung Kwei in Chinatown and in the malls.

Interment or Cremation: A Feng Shui Perspective!

Published Nobyembre 1, 2016 by jptan2012

I understand that the Roman Catholic Church now allows cremation provided that there is going to be a proper interment after.

Some of you, especially my regular readers, would know that I’m a big advocate of cremation. Why? Because this takes out a lot of the possible problem of Yin Feng Shui.

Yin Feng Shui is the branch of Feng Shui that has to do with the Feng Shui or burial sites or cemeteries. I myself am not very familiar with this because this is a critical branch of Feng Shui, something that may cause harm to the one who does this. My Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong is a certified Yin Feng Shui consultant, and my Guru Lama himself without explicitly telling me is somebody who knows how to handle Yin Feng Shui. But again this is a very delicate branch of Feng Shui. In fact, in Hong Kong there is a famous Feng Shui consultant, one who is adept in doing Feng Shui and who is quite famous because he has attracted some of the richest people in Hong Kong as his clientele. However, when he did a delicate Yin Feng Shui and went to the cemetery, he died right there and then while he was doing it when a landslide happened and buried him alive. I’m sure my readers from Hong Kong and Taiwan would know whom I’m talking about, just as those who are familiar with Feng Shui.

But no matter how delicate Yin Feng Shui is, one has to do it if one opts for an interment, because a Yin Feng Shui, for example wrong placement of the tomb, or wrong direction can lead to really tremendous bad luck to the descendants of the person. Or the person itself might go to the lower realms like Hell or Hungry Ghost or Animal Kingdom or it may make your life next life as a human really bad.

But I repeat, doing Yin Feng Shui that is why I never fully studied about it except for some basic guidelines. And throughout my life as a Feng Shui practitioner, I have never attempted to do Yin Feng Shui except maybe thrice. One is when we have to correct the burial site of my paternal grandmother because the first Feng Shui consultant who did it made a mistake, but in effect I didn’t do it myself because all the decisions were made by my Feng Shui teacher in Hong Kong and all I did was to relay details to him. But even I was just a conduit I made sure that I’m absolutely protected.

Then the second time was when my good friend practically begged me to help him correct his father’s burial site. Again this was done with the help of my Feng Shui teacher and Guru Lama and I again act as conduit.

Last time was when BM who has minor burial site with her mother’s tomb, my Guru Lama guided me what to do. In fact, I really don’t want to do it at that time but my Guru Lama said that I owe it to BM to do it and so I went to Davao and did it. But again, with BM it was just a matter of placing a Vajrapani Ruel and a special amulet and doing some ritual and again I made sure that I’m totally protected. In fact, I even have to wear a special ritual robe for it, which was later burned.

You see a wrong burial or interment process, or bad Yin Feng Shui will cause all sorts of problems to the ones left behind. But, as mentioned, also to the ones that was buried.

What are these problems? Well, it can range from extreme financial bad luck or grave ill health, or even turbulent and chaotic relationships. I know of a person who is unable to have a child only because of an alleged mistake in the burial site of her husband’s grandfather. Another loss all his family’s wealth when he didn’t have the proper direction of his mother’s tomb.

We can get rid of all these problems and potentials issues if one resorts to cremation. Of course, one has to consult a Feng Shui as to what is the best time to cremate a person, but that is the only concern one has to deal with, because with cremation, you actually take out the entire chi left by the consciousness of the person who passed away. In a way, you also get rid of the vessel and in the process you take away the entire chi also. That is why, when Westerners cremate and throw the ashes on the sea or mountain or even Niagara Falls, there is no bad luck that is created because there is no chi that comes with it.

The Buddhist Neighbor

Published Oktubre 17, 2016 by jptan2012

I’m really quite happy that I received the traditional copy of THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE EARTH STORE BODHISATTVA (also called known as Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva) and THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA just when we are settling to our new home. As I have said these traditional sutra amulets provides protection but more than that they also provide wonderful blessings. I have been looking and aspiring to get such sutras to be place in our house or even in my room. However, even if it is quite common for temples to have them, they are not for sale, neither it is regularly given to the temple goers. Furthermore, while they are in itself carries with it some power; it will be better to get one that was consecrated by a qualified lama or monk. Not all monks are qualified to consecrate a sutra amulet.

sutra-amulets

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

But what I want to share now is that when we first moved to our new home, and although we got all the most auspicious omens which I have written about a few posts ago, we sometimes still can’t help but miss our old home. We have been living in our old home since 1980, and moving to new home, even one we have grown to love right away still makes us feel a little ‘homesick’. I think one of the reasons for this; we practically don’t know any of our neighbors. My mom who is not in her 70’s had to make new friends in our neighborhood and it would be quite difficult, especially when we never had any other neighbors than Chinese and pure Filipino, but now some of our neighbors are Spanish mestizo or mestizo.

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

One other reason is that there is no Buddhist temple that is near our place. I think the nearest is about 45 minutes away. Unlike before where it was only 8 minutes away, on top of that, we’ve designed our house to include a big image of a Bodhisattva Kuan Yin (also called or spelled as Avalokitesvara, Guan Yin, Kuan Shi Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kannon, Cannon) on our small and humble front lawn, and the image of Guan Yin Bodhisattva can be seen outside. Several times when we light incense or made offerings in that particular image of Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, I noticed some car slowing down or there are a few who really can’t resist but to stare. From what I know there are very few Filipino – Chinese in our new subdivision and I really haven’t seen any of them. And maybe there would be even fewer Buddhist, and we were informed by the person who sold us the property that the subdivision is predominantly Catholic.

About a week since we moved in to our new home, neighbors started introducing themselves, and our image of Kuan Shi Yin Bodhisattva on our small and humble front lawn became the main focus of these conversations. My mom told me that she felt awkward explaining to our new neighbors as to why do we make offerings in front of the image. However, I think this seems to be an indication that they are genuinely interested in what we do and told my mom that she can use this as an opportunity to talk about Buddhism. But she clearly pointed out to me that she doesn’t have the passion of talking about her faith to people.

Anyway, when I received the traditional copies of the sutra amulets, and my Guru Lama said I and my family can have one each of THE SUTRA OF THE PAST VOWS OF THE KSITIGARBHA BODHISATTVA and THE DIAMOND OF PERFECT WISDOM SUTRA (also called THE VAJRA CUTTER PERFECTION OF WISDOM SUTRA or THE VAJRA SUTRA or THE VAJRA CUTTER SUTRA or THE DIAMOND SUTRA), and so as I said I was really happy to place them on the altar. It is customary that each member of the family to have one wish each as you put the sutras on the altar (we got two wishes each because there are two sutras), my youngest nephews all of a sudden uttered that his only wish is for his grandmother (my mother) to meet a Buddhist neighbor so that his grandmother won’t feel like she’s an alien.

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

Guess what? The next day, one of our neighbors (well they’re from two streets away) rang our bell and welcomed us with a pot of a vegetarian dish. They are a couple around 60 something. The wife is a Filipina and the husband is Irish, and they both happen to be practicing Buddhist for more than 20 years already! They said they’re happy that have a Buddhist neighbor. I wasn’t there at that time, but my mom said that she told them that she was happy to finally have met a Buddhist neighbor!

A Grandmother Starts Feeling Better Because of the Illness Suppression Amulet! – A Personal Testimony of A Reader.

Published Abril 19, 2016 by jptan2012

Regular readers of this blog must know by now that a black star that is greatly affecting our health and susceptibility to accidents currently rules us. I’m talking about the #2 Flying Star or what is also known as the Illness Star, which as I always say is not only a star that makes people sick, but is also a star the makes people more vulnerable to accidents.

Recently, my long time reader and friend called me up to request for the Illness Suppression Amulet because she is having a leg problem and also she had a minor accident on her stairs at home. Because of this she decided to get an Illness Suppression Amulet, not only for her, but also for her two children. I’m talking about Aling Erlinda, who was featured before on this blog. She was the one who sent me a message about her daughter having an increase flow of patients in the blog article called – IS IT RIGHT?. She was also featured in the article called COUNTING MONEY AND COUNTING MORE MONEY, although I opted not to name her then.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Anyway, going back to Aling Erlinda as I fondly call her, she got the Illness Suppression Amulet because of her leg pain, and also I think she is also having some difficulty walking. The good news is a few days after she got the Illness Suppression Amulet, according to her, the pain she is feeling has significantly subsided! And she totally attributes it to the fact that she now has the Illness Suppression Amulet. Because of this miracle, she now has decided to acquire more Illness Suppression Amulet for her helper. Isn’t she really nice, how many of us can acquire an amulet that may be quite pricey for our helpers? But at the same time, this is proof that Aling Erlinda truly believes that the Illness Suppression Amulet works.

This year, we are ruled by the energy of Illness and Accident because base on the Flying Star Formula of Feng Shui the #2 Flying Star lands on the center, thus it becomes the ruling star or energy of the year. Everybody is affected but people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger, and people who stays in the Northeast sector of the house or office, or people whose office table or bed faces Northeast, or if your house door, condo/apartment door, office door or office building door faces Northeast are more susceptible.

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture. For the Illness Suppression Amulet you can jump to item number 4.

Myth Buster 29: Hitting A Person With A Broom Will Bring Bad Luck to the Hitter!

Published Hulyo 24, 2015 by jptan2012

broomThere is a popular Chinese belief that hitting a person with a broom will bring bad luck to the hitter. Is there truth to this?

Well, you see it all started when Chinese parents, especially fathers believes that hitting a child, or spanking a child, is a good way of instilling discipline on them. Since leather belts are not used in the olden times, they would normally use stick or brooms.

Grandparents, especially, grandmothers and mothers will normally stop their husband from hitting their children because they know being hit with a broom is really painful. But since they cannot openly contradict the patriarch of the family, they would have to think of creative ways of stopping their husbands from using the broom. So they have to be creative in trying to stop their husband from using the broom, and since most Chinese believes in Feng Shui, they would often say that hitting somebody with a broom would bring bad luck to the hitter. This little white lie will often save their children from being hit by the broom.

As most often, these things get accepted as fact and becomes a regular belief. But there it goes, another myth busted!

Learning Some Valuable Lessons from A Reader and A Taxi Driver

Published Disyembre 5, 2013 by jptan2012

This has been a very good week for me. Aside from meeting another reader in person, I learned some valuable lessons.Lessons Learned

First, getting to meet one of my readers is really an experience that I value. It makes maintaining this blog so much worth it. This week I got the opportunity to meet a reader who happens to be a Filipino who lives in the US.

BM is a reader who contacted me about a year ago. Since she lives in the states, our communication has been limited to exchanging emails. However, she’s now in Manila for a short vacation and to take care of some documents.

I got the chance to meet BM and she requested me to read her Bazi. I don’t normally accept Bazi or Paht Chee readings these days. However, since BM is somebody who has contacted me about a year ago, I decided to take on her request. I’m glad I did!

BM is a person who doesn’t have any direct wealth. Meaning, she has every reason to become poor. She will never have any money that she’ll get out of luck or from her parents. However, her chart shows that while they may be some bumps along the road, she is destined to live a comfortable life in her old age. This is because BM works like a horse. She really works hard, and her chart shows how hard working she is. In fact, while she’ll definitely demure from the reality that she now has a good life, at least, so much better than most people, she has a comfortable life now because of how hard she worked for it.

I’m sharing this because I believe there’s a valuable lesson that each one of us can learn from her chart. Sometimes, fate is no match with our dedication and hard work. I think this is one of the important lessons I can impart to my readers. Let’s all learn from BM. A hardworking woman who is destined to have a good life.

Another valuable lesson that I learned this week is from a Taxi driver.

The other day, I was a little irritated that my driver got delayed. Since I have to rush to a meeting, I decided to take a cab. Little did I know that I’d learn a valuable lesson from a Taxi driver.

The driver strikes me as somebody who is overly cheerful. What’s more, unlike other taxi or cab drivers, he seem to notice only good things on the road, something that is really quite difficult to do if you drive on the streets of Manila. However, he seems to notice only the good things, like the simple thing that a boy was helping his grandmother (I’m just assuming this that they’re grandmother and grandson) cross the street. The drive said that it’s nice to see young ones still know how to take care of their elder and he seem so happy about it. Or like the homeless guy who takes care of his dog, to which he said that it’s really great that some people are so caring that even they don’t have anything they’re still willing to share whatever they have to another living thing. The guy he was referring to is a guy I see everyday and I haven’t thought of it that way. When I got to my destination, I gave him a twenty pesos tip. He again cheerfully expressed his gratitude and thanks me and said that it will add to his education fund for his children. Twenty pesos is a small amount, it’s a little less than US$0.50, and there was no sarcasm in his voice, he was really very appreciative. Because of that I gave him a bigger amount, a little bigger than my cab fare.

Again, I learned a valuable lesson. With all the good luck I’ve been receiving, I sometimes forget to be thankful with the little things that I get everyday.

Hard work, a grateful heart, and a cheerful predisposition are some of the most important Feng Shui charm or cure one can have in life. Maybe I’m pushing it a little, but maybe it is almost as good as having the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT.

NOTE: For those who haven’t received their Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras please email me again with the SUBJECT: FDRM. Have been really busy the past few weeks and my file got really disorganized. Apologies for this.
