2018 Year of the Earth Dog Feng Shui Forecast Base on Bazi Chart, Flying Stars Formula, and 24 Mountain Stars Formula: A Year that Brings Success Although it Lacks Wealth Luck but the Flying Stars Formula Offers A Little More Hope! (Four Things to Remember – Wear Gold, Be Hardworking, and Most Importantly Have Faith and Be Determined!) – Part 2

In the first part of this post, I wrote about my general Feng Shui forecast on the year, largely base on the bazi chart of the year, here I will share more base on the Flying Stars and on the 24 Mountain Stars. There I wrote about what should we generally expect in the lunar year to come, and while there is a bleak forecast about wealth luck/financial luck/money luck, there are some good things that we can expect also.

I’m always a little apprehensive about some of the things that I write especially if there is a bleak forecast, because since I earned the reputation of being the only Feng Shui writer or Feng Shui enthusiast at that who was able to accurately forecast the tragedy of Typhoon Haiyan / Typhoon Yolanda and the devastation it brought prior to the calamity and not post – calamity, my annual predictions, especially the significant ones has all come to fruition. I did this during the annual forecast for the year. And so while I still believe that the bleak financial forecast will also come true, I also believe that arming ourselves with hard work, determination, faith in higher being, and with Feng Shui charms or Buddhist and Taoist amulets will definitely see us through this dilemma. For this year, it is important that we wear gold. More importantly we should wear the Holy Trinity of Amulets which are the (1) Special Gold Piyao and/or the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET, (2) GOLD PENDANT IMAGE OF BODHISATTVA KSITIGARBHA (also known as Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa, Earth Store Bodhisattva), and (3) the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA combined amulet in a metal holder. If you want to understand about these amulets better, I suggest you read the first part of this post. Actually, you have to read the PART 1 of this forecast so that you see the whole picture.

Anyway, allow me to share with you the forecast base one the 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA and the FLYING STARS FORMULA.

Note: The FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA Combined Amulets will be available middle of December 2017. No photo yet.

THE CENTER HAS #9 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE MULTIPLYING AND FUTURE PROSPERITY STAR!

Technically speaking, this is neither a good or bad star. The power of this star is to let you reap whatever you sow. This star basically multiplies whatever karma you accumulate. If you do more good things you’ll have more good luck in the future, but if you continue to do a lot of bad things, you multiply your negative karma as well.

However, for this year though because it landed in the center means it brings the SUM OF 9 luck. While this is quite difficult to explain here, all you need to know is that it brings in some good luck and uplifts a little the bleak forecast base on the bazi chart. Having said that, it is also a star that indicates, if you continue to do good, you will surely be rewarded, however, if you harvested bad you will also surely reap bad karma.

For those who have planted good deeds also, this will be a year where you can reap those rewards of good karma. And so, while there is a bleak Feng Shui forecast in the year, you might fare better than others because of your good karma. Alternately, those who sow bad karma, well, this is a year where you will need help.

Recommendations:

Before I don’t really put any enhancer or cure recommendations because I want people to be more conscious about what they do. However, a reader told me that there are times that we simply, without intending to be bad, create some things that earn us negative karma. For this I highly recommend either the image of the Medicine Buddha or the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM or OM HANU PASHA BARA HE YE SOHA both of which are on the WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT. For those who don’t have the Wish Fulfilling and Buddha’s Blessing Mantra Pendant, you can simply chant the mantras mentioned above or wear the Surangama Mantra Amulet or Vajrapani Ruel.

For those who believes that they might have sowed bad karma, it will be extremely be beneficial for you, to help protect and cleanse you from the negative chi that you have planted, to wear a gold image of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha.

 

 

THE EAST HAS THE 2ND MOST DREADED STAR IN THE FLYING STAR FORMULA WHICH IS THE #7 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE VIOLENT STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE BIG AUSPICIOUS STAR AND THE ANNUAL CONFLICT STAR OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA

The star brings hostility and loss through robbery, theft, or even manipulation. Next to the Five Yellow Star or Wu Wang, this is one of the most dreaded stars. This year people born in the sign of the Rabbit are directly affected by this star and those who stays in the Northeast and Southeast are also side afflicted with the dreaded #5 Flying Star also known as Five Yellow Star. But more on that on the succeeding post. All people affected by this star either by virtue of their Chinese Animal Zodiac or because their home or office face East or is in the East sector should make sure that they take care of themselves. This is a powerful dreaded star that, as mentioned brings hostility and loss, either thru robbery, theft or even manipulation.

Recommendations:

Since this is one most the more serious star that we have to take care of, it’s important that people whose houses are facing East or simply staying in the East of their house or office should have the following: Vajrapani Ruel / Kalachakra / The Combined Amulet of the Four Dharmakaya Relic Mantras Amulet and the Lama Atisha Amulet.

The East also has two stars from the 24 Mountains Formula. These are namely the Big Auspiciousness Star and Annual Conflict Star. As you can deduce already, the Big Auspiciousness Star is the good star to have and you can further enhance this star by wearing the Special Gold Piyao. The Annual Conflict Star is a star that brings in some misfortune either in a big way or in ways that creates small stresses that builds up to a big one. The good news is that this can be suppress by the Special Gold Piyao or an image of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha (also known as Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa or Earth Store Bodhisattva).

 

 

THE SOUTHEAST HAS THE FAVORED #8 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE WEALTH STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE SUI PO, ANNUAL CONFLICT STAR, AND THE HEAVENLY SEAL STARS OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA!

This star is a very good star. It gives you abundance and to some a ‘bottomless’ pocket filled with money. This star is not just about money wealth but this is also for overall abundance. This year, this is considered as the luckiest star because it will bring wealth where the year shows there is none. That is not to say though, that this star is as strong as the previous years, because it while it brings wealth, it has to pull off wealth from somewhere. Thus, it has to be activated.

With the 24 Mountain Stars, the Sui Po is so weak this year that you can almost ignore it. The Heavenly Seal is auspicious it brings in heavenly support. Furthermore, and it will help strengthen the #8 Flying Star or the Wealth Star. However, the Annual Conflict Star is a cause for concern, because it brings misfortune thus there is a need to protect oneself from it.

Recommendations:

Faux gold Coins or Bars or Ingots should be place on this sector. Placing an image of a Wealth Deity like the Maitreya Buddha, Kuan Kong, Bodhisattva Earth Store (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha) or Sun Wukong is also going to be extremely auspicious. If the door of your office or office building or home, and/or if your bedroom or office is on this sector, it will be good for you to wear a Special Gold Piyao or a VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET to help activate the #8 Flying Star that will bring in wealth luck.

While you need not do anything to activate the Heavenly Seal Star, you can help strengthen it by wearing or hanging the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and the LAMA ATISHA combined amulet on this sector. If you are on this sector a lot, you can wear one also. Lastly, to protect yourself from the Annual Conflict Star, you can simply wear the Special Gold Piyao which is also the one you need to activate the Wealth Star.

THE SOUTH HAS THE #4 FLYING STAR WHICH IS ALSO KNOWN AS THE ROMANCE AND SCHOLASTIC STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE NATURAL DISASTER OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA AND IS THE FACING THREE – KILLINGS LOCATION OF THE YEAR!

Romance luck is heightened if your room is on this side of the house. For single people, you might have the possibility of finding love. For partnered people, you might find your love getting more ‘fragrant’. However, for married couple the effect might be two- Fold. First, you might find yourself loving each other more deeply, but there might also be the possibility of a third party getting involved. It is also called Scholastic Star because it also has a good effect on the scholastic pursuits of a person. Meaning, students may become more studious, and professionals might find that it’s easier to understand documents.

Unfortunately, it also has the Star of Natural Disaster, and while this star has no direct effect on a personal level, countries that is in the South Sector of the map, or provinces that is in the South side of a country might find that there is an increase of calamities.

This is also the Facing of the Three Killing. And while the three killing stars might bring conflict, it is quite easy to deal with it, you simply face it. And in a way, just by being on this sector, you are already dealing with it.

Recommendations:

For single person, you can put a Rose Quartz Mandarin Ducks on your bedside. For married couple, you can hang the Double Happiness on your headboard. To safeguard yourself from a third party, tie an Amethyst Geode with Red String on the foot of your bed or ask your partner to wear a gold image of Kuan Kong. You can also use the power of Green Tara to ensure that this star works for the positive only. For those single people hoping to find love, you can also wear a Surangama Mantra Amulet or gold Kuan Yin Bodhisattva (also called or spelled as Avalokitesvara, Kannon, Guan Yin, Guan Shi Yin, Kuan Shi Yin) pendant.

 

THE SOUTHWEST HAS A FAVORED STAR WHICH IS THE #6 FLYING STAR OR THE HEAVEN’S BLESSING AND MENTOR STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE YIN JIA, YI DUO, GOLDEN DEITY STARS OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA!

This star helps set the ‘tone’ of the year for people whose office, or room is in the Southwest side of the house or building. Meaning, if you continuously do more good the more blessed you’re going to be. This also means that if you’re Chinese Animal Zodiac is not so good, you will have help from Heaven (Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Deities, Immortals, or Saints). This also means that you’ll be lucky enough to have people who will help you achieve your goal.

While the Yin Jia and Yi Duo Stars are a cause for concern, you can easily protect yourself from it by wearing a protection amulet.

The good news is that you also have the Golden Deity Star, and having this star means you’ll get blessings from various deity. This is also an auspicious star that helps brings in wealth, and so this is considered as an extremely auspicious star, especially in a year when the energies are lacking of wealth luck / financial luck / money luck.

Recommendations:

In your room or office put some crystal ball or 6 White Jade tied with a red string. People who are staying in this sector and people born in the year of the Sheep or Monkey will do well if they invite an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity or Immortal by wearing their image as a pendant. I personally suggest one of the following: Avalokitesvara aka Kuan Yin, Shakyamuni Buddha, and/or Earth Store Bodhisattva (also known as Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha or Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa.

To enhance the Golden Deity Star, it is best to wear an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store.

You can easily protect yourself from the ill effects of the Yin Jia and Yi Duo Stars by wearing the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA combined amulet.

 

 

THE WEST HAS THE #2 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE ILLNESS STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE ANNUAL CONFLICT AND REDUCING ENERGY STARS OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA!

As the name implies, this star causes illness and to some extent it can be fatal or terminal. This star also causes some accidents that may make you invalid for a long time if not permanently. Everybody who stays in this sector is affected.

Both the Annual Conflict Stars and the Reducing Energy Stars of the 24 Mountain Stars Formula are negative stars, and thus these are stars that will definitely be dealt with. The Annual Conflict star will definitely bring in a lot of stress that may develop into something serious, but having this star both in WEST 1 and WEST 3 sectors will definitely make things so much worse. Then the Reducing Energy star, joining the Illness Star will definitely make things bad for people who stays in this sector.

Recommendations:

To counter the effects of this illness star (also of the reducing energy star of the 24 Mountain Stars Formula), it is important that one constantly recite the Sutra of the Medicine Buddha and the Medicine Buddha Mantra (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA). Secondary cure for this displaying a Wu Lou (also spelled as Wulou) or Holy Gourd and putting it at the West of the house.

Two years ago my Guru Lama has come up with a special Illness Suppression Amulet and that is he has combined three of the most powerful anti-illness and anti-accident mantras, which he has consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha and included some powerful Dharma Pills.

I shall write about the Dharma Pills in my succeeding post. But basically, a Dharma Pill is a special small object that is made of second-class relics of high lamas and is highly consecrated. Please note consecration is better than simply blessing it.

The mantras that are included in this Illness Suppression Amulet are the Medicine Buddha Mantra printed in a blue paper, Namgyalma Mantra and White Umbrella Goddess Mantra printed on a white paper, and Amitayus Mantra printed on a red paper. Aside from wearing this, this should definitely be in the West sector of the house or office. For this year, my Guru Lama has made an enhanced ‘version’ of this amulet. I still don’t have it but will see it soon.

This year he has replaced the holder and made it into metal, because the metal elements helps suppress the illness star.

People in this sector can also wear the Special Gold Piyao to suppress the double effects of the Annual Conflict Star.

 

THE NORTHWEST HAS #1 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE VICTORY STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE SMALL AUSPICIOUSNESS STAR AND THE STAR OF ROBBERY OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA. THIS YEAR, THE TAI SUEY OR THE GRAND DUKE JUPITER ALSO RESIDES ON THIS SECTOR!

This is quite auspicious because this will in some way temper the challenging Bazi chart (Paht Chee chart) of the year, especially at the beginning to the year. As mentioned the beginning of the year may prove to be quite difficult for people who wants or have some money – making projects to take off. This is a good star especially for those who have projects that are not wealth – centric. This also gives an advantage for those who stays in this sector in their career.

This sector also has the Small Auspiciousness Star, but for this year, every small blessing is big and so those whose house or buildings or office, or those who stay in this sector are quite lucky to have this star.

Unfortunately, you also have the Star of Robbery, and so as the name of the star implies you have to be careful about robbery. However, robbery here doesn’t only imply to actual robbery, although it could be that, but more of being robbed off your hard work on a project like recognition, or losing the project at its final stage.

Recommendations:

Put in your bedroom / office or carry or wear one of the following images – Victory Banner, Lung – Ta or Wind Horse, Kuan Kong, or Vajrapani Ruel or Surangama Mantra Amulet.

Note: That if the center of your house or office is a stockroom or washroom /comfort room/ rest room this is really bad and you should try to avoid using that room.

For the Star of Robbery, having the Vajrapani Ruel or the Special Gold Piyao or the Kalachakra Pendant made of gold is enough protection for you not to be affected by this star.

It is extremely advisable for you to activate the Small Auspiciousness Star by having the Special Gold Piyao.

However, it should be noted that this year, the Tai Suey God is in the Northwest. It has to be noted that Tai Suey is not part of the Flying Star or 24 Mountain Star but we need to always take this into consideration because offending the Tai Suey will create a lot of bad luck.

The Taoists, where most of how we do Feng Shui originated, believes that a certain God called Tai Suey or Tai Sui or Grand Duke in English rules a year. This year 2018, the Tai Sui (Tai Suey) God of the year is Supreme General Jiang Wu. However, you have to understand a little about Taoist Gods for you to be able to understand why we have to be careful in dealing with the Tai Suey.

Taoist Gods are like humans with supernatural powers. They have magical and godly powers but they may also have human temperament and they also have characters and personalities. Meaning, they can get angry with our acts, they can be disturbed and get angry with us and thus render a punishment to us, or maybe the simple act of them getting irritated with us might create some misfortune. However, they can also be appeased and happy with us and render us some good blessings, or again, the simple act of the Tai Suey getting happy with us will create some good fortune.

To help ensure that Tai Suey is happy with us always carry an image of the Pi Yao or Pi Xiu. This celestial animal will help appease the Grand Duke or Tai Suey. Another image that can help manage the Tai Suey God is to carry, display or wear an image of the Wind Horse or Lung Ta. People born in the year of the Dog and Pig are directly affected by the Tai Suey God (also spelled as Tai Sui, Tai Sue) regardless of where their room is, also affected are the Horse and Rat, and they should have the Piyao. Also, if your door faces Northwest, or if your bedroom and office is in the Northwest you should also put the image of the Piyao. People who are occupying the West also should wear or carry the image of the Piyao. Also, one of the best protections for the Tai Suey is an image of the Goddess of the North Star or Dou Mu Yuan Jun, thus having her image is also highly advisable.

 

THE NORTH HAS THE MOST DREADED STAR WHICH IS THE #5 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE 5 – YELLOW STAR OR WU WANG!

IT ALSO HAS THE THREE KILLINGS AND NATURAL DISASTER STARS OF THE 24 – MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA!

Feng Shui practitioners all know that this is the most dreadful star amongst all the 4 bad flying stars. In fact, sometimes it doesn’t matter whether you’re lucky base on your Bazi chart, if you are afflicted with this you are going to face a very challenging year. This year, the Wu Wang is ever more dreadful because it lands on the North sector, maybe not as dreadful as when it landed in the Northeast on 2016 but still it is more dreadful than usual. That is because the North is ruled by the water element, which actually reduces the energy of the metal it should make the Wu Wang, an earth element weaker. But this year, the North has weak water energies and the double earth energy of the years makes the Wu Wang stronger. So, the effects may be doubled. If you stay (office, room) in this sector or if your house faces this sector or if you are born in the year of the RAT, it’s IMPERATIVE that you deal with this star. If you are on a budget and there is only one thing that you can deal with this year, deal with this. I cannot stress enough the importance of dealing with this.

Add to that is the Three Killings, and the Natural Disaster Stars. I’m not very worried with the three killings but since North is also weakened you will need extra protection. Not to mention you also have the Natural Disaster Star.

Again, the 5 – Yellow Star is the worst of all negative stars! It’s the most dreaded star. It is said to bring 5 different kinds of misfortunes!

And as mentioned this year the Wu Wang is much stronger.

Recommendations:

AGAIN! AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE MOVE OUT FROM THIS SECTION OR DON’T USE THIS SECTION. If that is not possible, you can also use the Five Element Pagoda (5 – Element Pagoda), and the Kalachakra made of gold. But I only recommended this as a secondary option. There is going to be a slight difference on how you use the Five Element Pagoda. First, make sure you are using a new one, take away the old ones and get a new one. Make sure also that it is something that can be opened (please see image below). Inside the top opening, instead of putting a soil, put a crystal. In that case you will still have use an earth element but with a very positive chi. Then at the bottom opening, you have to put three to five powerful amulets or mantras or sutras. I strongly recommend the following:

Please note that you should have at least have 2 of the first three suggestions.

For people who stays in this section of the house or building and if you can’t move out of this sector, it is very important that you wear either the Kalachakra (gold or jade and the Five Element Pagoda (strictly in gold) and also carry with you at least 3 of the mentions amulets that has to be placed inside the Five Element Pagoda. Furthermore, people born in the year of the Horse should also ensure that they wear either the Five Element Pagoda (gold) and the Kalachakra (gold, crystal quartz, jade) and carry the above-mentioned amulets. The logic of this advice will be explained on the forecast for the Rat.

Admittedly, the 5 – Element Pagoda and the Kalachakra pendants can be hard to find, especially you need to wear them in gold. For the Kalachakra pendant, you can search the web to look for one, there are some online stores that sell them in gold or clear quartz or jade. It might be a little pricey though. For the Five – Element Pagoda gold pendant, unfortunately, I have been searching the web where to get this but I can only find two sources. One is thru Lillian Too’s online store.

The other one is through a private seller. I only have praises for the one sold online in Feng Shui Megamall of Lillian Too, but the only drawback is that it can be quite pricey (relatively speaking) and with the tax and shipping fee involved, it’s price is almost doubled.

I also asked my Feng Shui teacher about other alternatives for the cure against the Wu Wang, and as of now it remains to be the 5 – Element Pagoda or (secondary) the Kalachakra and nothing else.

But I’m glad that a reader from Davao has since then provided me a 5 – Element Pagoda and Kalachakra with superb craftsmanship, unlike my previous jeweler, she has also proven to be quite professional and trustworthy. Her Five Element Pagoda pendant and Kalachakra pendant both fashioned in gold which is quite important for the purpose of protection is as good as that of the ones found online but with half or only 1/5 (for the Kalachakra) of the price.

It is worth noting again that for this year the Five – Element Pagoda should include some powerful mantra or sutra amulets and instead of soil put some crystals. For those who will need to wear the Five – Element Pagoda pendant it has to be in gold and carry 3 of the mentioned powerful mantra or sutra amulets above.

It is also important to get these cures early because you would want the protection energy to build up already.

This year the Three Killings also found its way to the EAST, Unlike the Tai Suey or the Five Yellow Star, which we must avoid, the 3 – Killings is something that we must confront. Meaning, the best way to deal with it is to face the Three Killings and not turn our back against it. If the 3 Killings is not confronted then it can wreak three kinds of misfortunes to a person. The three misfortunes are accident, financial loss, and illness.

So a good way of dealing with the Three Killings is to place the image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or Immortal in the East section of the room, house, office, and building. Those who are staying in the East section of their house, office, building, or room must wear an image of the Three Celestial Guardians or images of three different Buddhas or Bodhisattvas or Deities or Immortals. But because the North is already weakened having the FOUR DHARMKAYA RELIC MANTRAS AND LAMA ATISHA COMBINED AMULET is also a must.

The Three Celestial Guardians are the Fu Dog, Chi Lin (also spelled as Qi Lin or Chilin or Chi Lin) and Piyao (also spelled or called Pi Yao, Pi Xiu, Pixiu).

 

 

THE NORTHEAST HAS THE #3 FLYING STAR ALSO KNOWN AS THE ARGUMENTATIVE STAR!

IT ALSO HAS THE ANNUAL KILLING STAR, BIG AUSPICIOUSNESS STAR AND EARTH SEAL STAR OF THE 24 MOUNTAIN STARS FORMULA!

The Flying Star #3 also known, as the Argumentative Star is a star that causes relationship problem, numerous bickering, litigation problems, quarrels and problems/conflicts with people in authority. If not controlled and suppressed, this star will bring about tremendous problems with your family and officemates or business partners. It can also cause a lot of unnecessary legal issues. This star has to be suppressed.

The Annual Killing Star is a star that causes a lot of problem, but the good thing is this sector also has the Big Auspiciousness Star and the Earth Seal. The Big Auspiciousness Star is a powerful star that brings in wealth amongst other blessings. The Earth Seal, has the potential to bring in wealth also but you have to ‘cultivate’ it.

Recommendations:

The best cures for this argumentative star are either the Ksitigarbha Fireball or the Nine – Ring Sword of Kuan Kong. The image of Kuan Kong is also a very good cure for this star. People affected by this star can wear or carry an image of the cures. The Maitreya Buddha also known as the Happy Fat Buddha is also a great help. These are what I normally recommend. But lately I noticed that another great cure for this are the Surangama Mantra Amulet and Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra Pendant. However, in the past few years it has been proven that the gold pendant of Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva (Earth Store Bodhisattva) worn around the neck is also a very powerful tool against this star. Furthermore, the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA combined amulets will also work well for this star. For those people whose office or bedroom is in this sector should wear the image of Earth Store Bodhisattva pendant made of gold.

For the annual killing star one can use the Special Gold Piyao to counter the effects of this star. To help activate the Earth Seal, one can wear an image of Bodhisattva Earth Store as a gold pendant.

One should note though that regardless of your Chinese Animal Zodiac, it will be good for everybody to have the Holy Trinity of Amulets of the year, which is basically are the (1) Special Gold Piyao or the VAISRAVANA – DZAMBHALA WEALTH AMULET; (2) gold pendant of the image of Di Zhang Wang Pu Sa (Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha / Earth Store Bodhisattva); and the FOUR DHARMAKAYA RELIC MANTRAS and LAMA ATISHA combined amulets in a metal holder.

Recite A Sutra (2): Get Healed or Good Health, Create An Aura of Protection, Attract Wealth with the Power of ‘The Medicine Buddha Sutra’!

Published Abril 8, 2016 by jptan2012

In the preceding post, I reminded people about the effects of the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star that also cause accidents. One way, to protect you from it is to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet, and this amulet is proving to be a very useful tool to serve as a shield against the effect of the Illness Star.

However, there is another way of protecting oneself from the effects of the Illness Star, and that is to recite the THE SUTRA ON THE ORIGINAL VOWS AND MERITS OF THE MEDICINE MASTER LAPIS LAZULI LIGHT TATHAGATHA, which is more popularly known as the Medicine Buddha Sutra. But before that, in my previous post called INVITE WONDERFUL BLESSINGS IN YOUR LIFE BY RECITING A SUTRA. I talked about the importance and tremendous benefit one may get when reciting a sutra. By reciting, I mean chanting it out load, reading it out loud, reciting it out load. If you can recite it by heart (memory) then all the better because the merit that you get is multiplied by a hundred fold. Personally speaking I have already memorized the HEART SUTRA, THE BUDDHA SPEAKS OF THE EIGHT REALIZATIONS OF GREAT BEINGS SUTRA, THE 42 CHAPTERS SUTRA, and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA. 

Since this year the ruling star is the Illness Star, reciting the Medicine Buddha Sutra will definitely bring a lot of benefit to all people. One is sure to get good health by simply reciting this sutra. However, more than that as you read the sutra you will know that one of it’s promise is also that you get protected from evil spirits and evil intentions of other people, but more than that you can also attract wealth simply reciting this sutra. Little do people know that Medicine Buddha is not simply for good health and protection but Medicine Buddha is also a powerful Buddha that helps attract wealth. In fact, the Illness Suppression Amulet, while primarily made for protection against the effect of the #2 Flying Star, because of the fact that it is consecrated under Medicine Buddha this means that it is also a good wealth amulet.

You will find the link where you can download the Medicine Buddha Sutra below but I have written about it before and I have written about Medicine Buddha Himself before. I’ll put in the links below.

But it should be noted though that before reciting a sutra, it is customary the one should brush their teeth first and wash their face, it you take a shower better.

Put your palms together and say – NAMO FUNDAMENTAL TEACHER SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA 3X. After that one should say also the Sutra Opening Gatha:

THE DHARMA INFINITELY PROFOUND AND SUBTLE

IS RARELY ENCOUNTERED EVEN UNDER A MILLION OF KALPAS

WE ARE NOW ABLE TO HEAR, READ, AND FOLLOW IT

MAY WE TRULY UNDERSTAND THE TATHAGATHA’S TRUE MEANING

This is basically an invocation for the Buddha Shakyamuni helps you understand the sutra.

Please click the link to download the actual sutra – The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata. The version I’m putting here is that the one translated by Chung Tai, which is in the lineage of Zen Buddhism.

Recite A Sutra (1): Create Harmony and Peace Thru The Powerful Sutra Called “The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra”!

Published Abril 4, 2016 by jptan2012

In my preceding post, I talked about the importance and the amazing benefit of reciting a sutra. Regular readers of this blog, already knows that chanting a mantra is a powerful way of tapping into the power of a Buddha or Bodhisattva, but as mentioned in the post – INVITE WONDERFUL BLESSINGS IN YOUR LIFE BY RECITING A SUTRA – reciting a sutra brings in even more wonderful blessings.

When I say reciting a sutra, it means that you will have to read it aloud. If you can memorize the sutra then recite it from memory, then the blessings are multiplied hundred times. In the succeeding posts, I will share with you the different sutras that I personally recite, some everyday and some once a week. Some are quite short and some are really long.

Today, let me start off with the shortest but one of the most revered sutra in the world, and that is THE HEART OF PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA. It’s called THE HEART OF PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA because even though it is quite short it captures the essence of the PRAJNA PARAMITA sutras, which consist of several different sutras that talks about the Prajna Paramita or Perfect Wisdom.

THE HEART OF PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA is short but is also one of the hardest sutra to understand. It is also more often called as THE HEART SUTRA. The Tibetan Buddhists believes that THE HEART SUTRA is a sutra that was spoken by Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, but Zen Buddhists and Pure Land Buddhists believes that Shakyamuni Buddha himself spoke it. I tend to believe that it was indeed spoken by Buddha Shakyamuni.

Reciting THE HEART SUTRA will help create the blessing of harmony and peace. So people who are affected by the #3 Flying Star (also called Argumentative Star), and people who are in a hostile environment, and people who are engage in a legal case will do well to recite THE HEART SUTRA everyday, maybe even several times a day will do. Wearing the whole sutra as an amulet will also help bring about these blessings but wearing it and reciting is the most ideal situation.

Furthermore, when one totally understands THE HEART OF PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA, one can enter into Samadhi. This is easier said than done because even though this sutra is really short it’s quite difficult to understand it.

I personally love this sutra and believe in its power so much that I highly recommend people wear this sutra. In fact, the past 2 or 3 years I have recommended wearing the image of Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra gold pendant. Partnering this sutra with the Vajrapani Ruel also creates tremendous amount of winning edge with attracting a lot of hostile energies. In fact a reader has shared with me a personal testimony involving The Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra pendant. You can find the link below if you want to read about it.

Since the sutra is short, instead of a link to it, I will put it here from memory in its entirety.

Please don’t be surprised that the English translation of these sutras might slightly differ from each other. This is simply a matter of translation. But I will always share with you the English version that I use and believes is easier to understand. If you can recite it in the Tibetan language or Chinese language, which are more accurate. Sometimes, I will recite them in both Chinese and English or English and Tibetan.

 

THE HEART OF PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA

Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara,

While deeply immersed in prajna paramita,

Clearly perceived the empty nature of the five skandha,

And transcended all suffering.

Sariputra! Form is not different from emptiness,

Emptiness is not different from form.

Form is emptiness, emptiness is form.

So it is with feeling, conception, volition, and consciousness.

Sariputra! All dharmas are empty in character;

Neither arising nor ceasing,

Neither impure nor pure,

Neither increasing nor decreasing.

Therefore, in emptiness, there is no form;

There is no feeling, conception, volition, or consciousness;

No eye, ear, nose, tongue, body, or mind;

No form, sound, smell, taste, touch, or dharmas;

No realm of vision, and so forth,

Up to no realm of mind – consciousness;

No ignorance or ending of ignorance, and so forth,

Up to no aging and death or ending of aging and death.

There is no suffering, no cause, no extinction, no path.

There is no wisdom and no attainment.

There is nothing to be attained.

By way of prajna paramita,

The bodhisattva’s mind is free from hindrances.

With no hindrances, there is no fear;

Freed from all distortion and delusion,

Ultimate nirvana is reached.

By way of prajna paramita,

Buddhas of the past, present, and future

Attain anuttara – samyak – sambodhi.

Therefore, prajna paramita

Is the great powerful mantra,

The great enlightening mantra,

The supreme and peerless mantra.

It can remove all suffering.

This the truth beyond all doubt.

And the prajna paramita mantra is spoken thus:

Gate Gate Paragate Parasamgate Bodhi Svaha (Soha).

Below is the Chinese version of the Sutra. I have taken the liberty to include it here for those who can read Chinese.Heart Sutra Chinese

Fifteen Merit Days: A Gift From the Heaven to Help Protect Us From the Ill Effects of the Year! (Part 2)

Published Pebrero 5, 2016 by jptan2012

In my preceding post, which is also the 1st part of this post, I talked about what I call the ‘Fifteen Merit Days’ that will happen on Feb. 8, 2016 to Feb. 22, 2016. As mentioned in that post, it is very rarely that the Chinese New Year and Tibetan New Year will happen at the same time, and because of this it created a special Fifteen Merit Days that can help protect us from the ill effects of the year and also create good karma for us.

Any good deeds are going to be have doubled or tripled merits.

But today, allow me some of the traditional way to earn merits on the said 15 Merit Days.

Chant the following mantras and Buddha or Bodhisattva names:

  1. Amitabha Buddha Mantra (OM AMI DEWA HRIH)
  2. Shakyamuni Buddha Mantra (OM MUNI MUNI MAHAY MUNI YE SOHA)
  3. Medicine Buddha Mantra (TADYATHA OM BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA)
  4. Mantra of the Compassionate Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara / Kuan Yin (OM MANI PADME HUM)
  5. Mantra of Ksitigarbha Buddha (OM AH KSITIGARBHA THALENG HUM)
  6. Name of Samantabhadra Bodhisattva (NAMO TA XING PU XIEN PUSA)
  7. Mantra of Bodhisattva Manjushri (OM A RA PA TSA NA DHIH)
  8. Wish Fulfilling Manta and Negative Karma Cleansing Mantra (OM PADMO USHNISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT & OM HANU PASHA BHARA HEYE SOHA)
  9. Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrapani (OM VAJRAPANI HUM)
  10. Mantra of Bodhisattva Vajrasattva (OM VAJRASATTVA HUM)

Recite the following Sutras:

  1. The Prajna Paramita Heart Sutra (Heart Sutra)
  2. The Diamond Cutter Sutra
  3. Sutra of the Medicine Buddha
  4. The Noble Stack of Auspiciousness Sutra
  5. The Buddha Speaks of Amitabha Sutra
  6. The Sutra on Impermanence

To do all these, it usually takes me 2 hours to finish all. You can omit some of the mantras or sutras mentioned on the list. However, remember the more you are able to do the more merit you’ll get. I especially recommend this to people who are sick or have a family who are sick and people born under the sign of the Ox and Tiger and also those who stay in the Northeast.

It will also be good if you can make vegetarian and fruit offering in the temple, as well as light and incense offering. Prostrating in front of an image of a Buddha or Bodhisattva will also likewise add some merits.

Please note that you can add other mantras or sutras. Especially the Mantra of Goddess Tara, Yellow Dzambhala, and Maitreya Buddha.

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.

The Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra and the Vajrapani Ruel Helped an Entrepreneur Solved Her Problems!

Published Mayo 1, 2015 by jptan2012

MS is a new entrepreneur from Cebu. She has been a loyal employee to her former boss. MS helps run his business, and although her salary was quite small roughly only around US$ 400.00 only a month, she remained loyal because she believes in its virtue and also she felt that it is the right thing to do. Because of her loyalty and perseverance she humbly states that she was able to help make the business prosper, although she was never offered a substantial raise. But things took a sour turn when the company hired another new employee and offered this person a much bigger salary than MS. This is when she put her foot down and decided to leave the company.

The Kuan Yin with the Heart Sutra is part of the Holy Trinity of Protection for the 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep. The sutra can be carried separately.

MS decided to leave and with the help of some friends turned business partners; she decided to put up her own business. Everything should have been fine, but because of the bitterness of her former boss for losing her and maybe seeing that she is doing really well with her business, he became vindictive. He literally rallied and railroaded people not to do business with MS, his former valued employee.

Furthermore, in the process she also encountered some problems with her business although thru no fault of hers. One of her drivers accidentally hit a person, and unfortunately, the person died. On top of that, she has encountered a lot of other problems. MS is familiar with Feng Shui and believes that the problem is caused by some Feng Shui problems of her business partner.

It is because of this that MS decided to get in touch with me. She fairly has a good idea of what she needs already and decided to ask for help to look for the Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra pendant and the 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.

A few months after she requested for it, MS shared with me that her former boss has stopped rallying against her, and in fact, he has sent a message to MS to make peace with her. On top of that when she approached the family of the person who died because of her driver, she steadfastly believed that Kuan Yin with the Heart Sutra will definitely help her, and it did, because she was very pleasantly surprised that although they were grieving they were not sad and didn’t blame anybody. Furthermore, their business problems seems to cease exist when she gave the Vajrapani Ruel to her business, because she knows that a Vajrapani Ruel helps to stop the negative effects of Feng Shui blunders.

The Holy Trinity of Protection: 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep Essential Cures

Published Disyembre 30, 2014 by jptan2012

Every year people ask me as to what is the essential charm of the year. The direct answer to this is that will largely depend on your Chinese animal zodiac, for example, if you’re born in the year of the Sheep, Monkey, Horse, Ox you definitely had to guard yourself against Tai Suey (Tai Sui) because you are either directly or on side affliction with the Tai Suey. Those born under the year of the Rooster should definitely have the 5 – Element Pagoda because you’re afflicted with the 5 – Yellow Star, for your reference I suggest that you read my earlier posts about the forecast for the 2015 year of the Wood Sheep.

Although I have said this before, I guess it is worth repeating here, the #3 Flying Star, which is also known as the Argumentative Star this years flies to the center. This means the ruling star of the year is the #3 Flying Star and it is bound to make all things a more heated. The ruling star is the prevailing energy of the year, and that means it dictates the possible most common occurrence of the year. However, the destructive pillar in the year’s Bazi or Paht Chee chart shows that the wood element is destroying the earth element, together with the position of the 24 Mountain Stars further strengthen this Argumentative Star. Thus for the year the #3 Flying Star is stronger than usual.

Some of its effects are that there would be an increase of quarrel. It can be a misunderstanding or a fight between husband and wife, parents and children, sibling against sibling, relatives against relatives, and neighbors against neighbors. It can also be a fight against your boss, clients, or it may even be from a stranger. The arguments can lead to bigger things like separation, legal cases, or depending on your luck, it might even lead physical harm or violent death!

Because of the strength of this star this year I highly recommend that everyone should have on display at his or her home and office and worn as a pendant what I call the Holy Trinity of Protection for this coming 2015, which is the Year of the Wood Sheep.

The Holy Trinity of Protection are the following:

  • Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra. You can read my posts about Kuan Yin  to understand what is her significance, but simply put Kuan Yin is a Bodhisattva who bestows peace and harmony, amongst other possible blessings. I have written about it extensively in three different posts entitled – KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEARS THE CRIES OF THE WORLD, followed by UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN, and lastly PAYING HOMAGE TO KUAN YIN, THE BUDDHA OF COMPASSION. Meanwhile, having ‘The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra’ otherwise known as Heart Sutra will further strengthen the harmonious energy. This is important because it is not only very important that we suppress the #3 Flying Star or Argumentative Star but it is also very imperative that we help push for harmony and peace. If you prefer to use a non – religious image, you can also display an apple, preferably real and make sure you change it before it rots. But with the Heart Sutra it might not be as effective. It might be a little difficult to get a pendant of Kuan Yin with the Heart Sutra, but separately carrying the sutra will work also.

    Sometimes it can be quite difficult to get a Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra Pendant, and it can be quite expensive also. So simply wearing a Kuan Yin pendant and separately carrying the Heart Sutra printed really to make it an amulet (Sutra Amulet) will also work as well.

You can also just get the Sutra Amulet and put it at the foot of an image of Kuan Yin, if you are unable to get a Kuan Yin image with Sutra.

     

    There are different kinds of Sutra Amulets. Look for one that has the Heart Sutra. They can be tied to your mala beads if you always carry your mala beads with you, or can be tied to your mobile phone or simply put in your pocket. Just make sure you don't seat on them!

    Sutra Amulets are basically sutras printed really small and made into a very small book so that one can carry it as an amulet. The Sutra Amulets effectivity will depend on what sutra is printed inside.

  • Kuan Kong or Namo Sangharama Bodhisattva. Kuan Kong is a very famous War General when he was still alive. You can read my posts about Kuan Kong entitled – Kuan Kong and Namo Sangharama Bodhisattva. Wearing an image of Kuan Kong will help suppress and protect you from the direct effects of the #3 Flying Star, furthermore, Kuan Kong will help you be more diplomatic, so should you find yourself in a heated situation and walking away is really not an option, then tapping on Kuan Kong’s energy will help you talk your way out of the situation, you’ll find yourself being more diplomatic. Furthermore, Kuan Kong is a renowned strategist, so having his image will also help you become more strategic thus helping you get out of a heated situation, if not totally preventing it. In choosing a Kuan Kong, it is better if you look at the face; the fierce nice face is the key for a nice Kuan Kong. The fiercer it is the better. It is also better if you wear a Kuan Kong either in yellow gold or a red stone or for house or office a Kuan Kong with a red face. If you don’t want to use Kuan Kong, you can also use the Ksitigarbha Fireball, but remember this will only help suppress the star but not help you become more diplomatic.Kuan Kong23
    Always look at the face of the Kuan Kong pendant that you're getting for yourself. The 'braver' the face the better.

  • Kalachakra. A Kalachakra is a ten – fold symbolic script of a very powerful ten – syllable protective mantra. The Kalachakra will help protect you from the peripheral effects of the unusually stronger #3 Flying Star. The effects of the Argumentative Star might not directly affect you yourself, however, the people around you may not be protected, and you might be indirectly affected. One clear example of this base on a real story. A client’s brother (VA) had a tragic incident that lead to his death, the sad thing about it he was actually an innocent party. He and some of his friends decided to meet for dinner. One of his friends (LM), while on his way to pick VA up, got into a fight with another driver. They had a heated argument on the road, but LM decided to just ‘walk away’ and drove off and ignores the other driver. Little did he know that he was followed. The other driver followed him to VA’s house where VA was waiting for him outside of his house. When LM was nearing the house, the other driver took who happened to have a gun took a shot a LM, he missed but LM lost control of his car, and bumped into VA. VA died approximately two weeks after the accident. This is an example of a peripheral effect. I’m not saying that this is what’s going to happen, but it can be something similar or maybe not as bad, but whatever it is it is better to stay protected.
    The Kalachakra symbol is one of the most powerful protection symbol in Buddhism. It actually consists of ten syllable mantra, with it symbolic script condensed into one. The mantra itself is HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. However, the mantra of the Kalachakra is never chanted without the mantra OM AH HUM. Making the complete mantra of Kalachakra - OM AH HUM HO HAM KSHAMALA VARAYA HUM PHAT. This is the reason why I decided to put the symbolic script of the mantra OM AH HUM on top of the Kalachakra symbol. As mentioned this is a very powerful protection symbol and can be likened to the Scapular of the Catholics. In fact, you'll seldom see a Tibetan Monk with wearing the symbol of the Kalachakra on their body. It may be hidden but most likely they have it somewhere on their body. But you'll never see them have the symbolic scripts tattooed because it is considered extremely bad luck to have a mantra tattooed on your body.

Serendipity and Affinity (Part 2)

Published Disyembre 28, 2014 by jptan2012

In my earlier post, I talked about Serendipity, now I would like to talk about Affinity. In Chinese there is a word called Yuen, which really has no direct English translation, but the closest word for it is affinity.

The Taoist and Feng Shui believers do believe that we sometimes have yuen or affinity with some Deities, Gods, Buddhas, or Bodhisattvas. The Buddhist don’t believe this, I personally tend to believe that yuen do exists but it is not a precursor for us to be able to get the help of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas.

The Taoist belief that if you have yuen or affinity with a God or Buddha or Bodhisattva or Deity, your prayers tend to be heard better and it’ll be easier for you to receive a blessing. It is also said that if you have yuen or affinity, you’ll personally feel closer to the said Deity, God, Buddha or Bodhisattva.

Personally, while I believe in yuen or affinity with the Buddhas, I don’t believe that this makes it easier for you to receive their blessings, it only means that you may be more attuned to their messages and you might feel closer to them. Whether it is easier or they will give us more blessings because we have affinity with each other should be the same with all people, but yuen or affinity might make us more attuned to their message and blessings.

Writing this because just recently, TK, a reader who had had the opportunity to consult and meet with me in person exhibited a strong affinity with the Bodhisattva of Compassion or Avalokitesvara aka Kuan Yin.

TK, consulted me about her family, and the initial reading showed that she should wear an image of Kuan Yin carved out of a Pink Chalcedony. Luckily, she was able to acquire one and after wearing it for a few months, it got broken. I think it got broken because she needed to be cleansed of a negative energy that may be causing her some harm thus causing her family problems. She has to replace it with another Kuan Yin pendant carved out of a High Grade Black Dragon Obsidian stone, this is quite hard to find but she found one. Then after while she also needed a Kuan Yin carved out of a Golden Chalcedony. Again, this is a very rare stone, but for some weird reason, just a day before she looked for one, a supplier has one, which arrived just a day before she started looking for one.

The Kuan Yin with the Heart Sutra is part of the Holy Trinity of Protection for the 2015 Year of the Wood Sheep. The sutra can be carried separately.

I guess one of the biggest surprises was when I wrote about THE HEART OF THE PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA where I mentioned my Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra pendant. Most of you would know that it is quite difficult to find this particular pendant, and I myself had only come across it a few times. However, TK for some reason read my article and somehow although they don’t know each other, another person who is not a regular reader of my blog also happened to check my blog and read that particular post. It also happened that he still has one Kuan Yin with Heart Sutra pendant left. Then for some reason, TK also received a message from a person who all of sudden thought of sending her message, TK mentioned about the pendant, and this person also happened to have gotten a call from the person who read my post who has the pendant. Needless to say, this person became a bridge for TK to have the pendant.

Back side of my Kuan Yin pendant. You can see though it's small the The The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra is written behind it.

When a monk heard about the story and when he got TK’s birthday and name, he said TK has yuen or affinity with Kuan Yin. I also had come to this conclusion myself. The coincidences is simply too much. I guess TK is so lucky to have yuen with Kuan Yin.

Create Harmony and Remove All Suffering with THE HEART OF THE PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA

Published Nobyembre 19, 2014 by jptan2012

I’m quite excited with the new Feng Shui product released by Lillian Too through her World of Feng Shui store. I’m referring to the Heart Sutra Pillar. While I may not be quite sure why she recommended the Heart Sutra Pillar for the Five Yellow Star because it still lacks the symbol of the five element which is essential in fighting the 5 Yellow Star, I can still think of a number of reasons why this is really good news.

First, I believe this is the first time that somebody has made the Heart Sutra in that form. I’m referring to how she made it. While it is not real gold, the gold finished of the pillar will still add some yang energy to the already powerful The Heart of Prajna Paramita most commonly called Heart Sutra. Plus making it into a pillar makes it easier to display anywhere at home.

But what is THE HEART OF PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA?The Heart Of Prajna Paramita Sutra

To answer that allow me to explain a little what is a sutra. A sutra is a text in Buddhism or Hinduism that talks about a life of a Buddha or Bodhisattva or virtues or teachings of a Buddha, or most of the time both. Literally it means a thread that holds things together.

A sutra mostly refers to canonical Buddhist scriptures, which are oral teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha.

The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra is just one of the Prajna Paramita sutras, and it is a highly revered sutra and quite unique because it is the only sutra that prominently features a Bodhisattva. Most sutras, if not all, are taken or taught in the perspective of Shakyamuni Buddha. Shakyamuni (also spelled as Sakyamuni) is the one teaching or giving the teaching in the sutra. However, in The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra it features Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara, which is also more popularly known as Kuan Yin. The sutra was written in Kuan Yin’s perspective and it’s Kuan Yin vision that is talked about in this particular sutra.

The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra or Heart Sutra is also the shortest sutra in the world. But, it is one of the most complete sutra in such a way that it has summarized the heart of all the Buddhist teachings, thus it is called The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra.

Wearing or displaying any sutras has the power to bless and protect the wearer or the surroundings where the sutra is displayed. But different sutras might slightly give off a different special blessing. For example, The Medicine Buddha sutra will give off a blessing of health, protection, and wealth.

Displaying or wearing The Heart of the Prajna Paramita Sutra will bless the wearer or the place with harmony, peace, protection, and wealth. It will also help the person coming across it attained a deeper knowledge of the Buddhist teachings, or help pave the way for the person to be ready for Buddhist scriptures. More than that as the promise of The Heart Sutra, it can also remove all suffering!

Displaying The Heart of Prajna Paramita Sutra is definitely a powerful tool to access its blessings. Personally though I prefer wearing it because by having it around or on your body all the time means you are constantly blessed with harmony, peace, and protection from all negative chi, and constant access to wealth luck. In fact, one of my favorite pendants is a gold Kuan Yin pendant with the sutra scripted at the back of the pendant. Chinese believes in the power of gold, and if a holy image or scripture is put in gold, this makes the effect even more powerful.

It will also be extremely beneficial if one can recite the sutra. Before reciting the sutra first ask the guidance and blessing of Shakyamuni Buddha by saying: NAMO FUNDAMENTAL TEACHER SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA (3X).

 

THE HEART OF PRAJNA PARAMITA SUTRA

Bodhisattva Avalokitesvara,

While deeply immersed in prajna paramita,

Clearly perceived the empty nature of the five skandhas,

And transcended all suffering.

Sariputra! Form is not different from emptiness,

Emptiness is not different from form.

Form is emptiness, emptiness if form.

So it is with feeling, conception, volition, and consciousness.

Sariputra! All dharma are empty in character;

Neither arising nor ceasing,

Neither impure nor pure,

Neither increasing nor decreasing.

Therefore, in emptiness, there is no form;

There is no feeling, conception, volition, or consciousness;

No eye, ear, nose, tongue, body or mind;

No form, sound, smell, taste, touch, or dharmas;

No realm of vision, and so forth,

Up to no realm of mind – consciousness;

No ignorance or ending of ignorance, and so forth,

Up to no aging and death or ending of aging and death.

There is no suffering, no cause, no extinction, no path.

There is no wisdom and no attainment.

There is nothing to be attained.

By way prajna paramita,

The bodhisattva’s mind is free from hindrances.

With no hindrances, there is no fear;

Freed from all distortion and delusion,

Ultimate nirvana is reached.

By way of prajna paramita,

Buddhas of the past, present, and future

Attain anuttara – samyak – sambodhi.

Therefore, prajna paramita

Is the great powerful mantra,

The great enlightening mantra,

The supreme and peerless mantra.

It can remove all suffering.

This is the truth beyond all doubt.

And the prajna paramita mantra is spoken thus:

Tadyatha, Om Gate Gate Paragate Parasamagate Bodhi Soha

 

The last line can be repeated 108 times.

Special Energizing Buddhist, Taoist, and Feng Shui Rituals to Bring Wealth, Career, and Personal Success (6): Read Sacred Texts to Imbibe Different Kinds of Blessing

Published Disyembre 9, 2012 by jptan2012

In Buddhism, reading or carrying a sutra will imbibe the blessing of a Buddha or Bodhisattva to whom the sutra comes from. I personally read the Medicine Buddha sutra everyday. It’s quite long but if you are in a rush, reading the shortest sutra in the world, which is the – THE HEART SUTRA – which is the Sutra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, will also do.

The HEART SUTRA which is also one of the Sutras of the Bodhisattva of Compassion is the shortest sutra in the world. This is the Chinese version of the sutra.

The HEART SUTRA which is also one of the Sutras of the Bodhisattva of Compassion is the shortest sutra in the world. This is the Chinese version of the sutra.

Reading a sutra is a very powerful way to open up yourself to the blessings of the Buddhas or Bodhisattvas. More importantly, it cleanses you from negative energies and negative karma. Sutras also carries with them protective attributes that work like amulets and by simply carrying the sutra or reading them you spiritually acquire these protective attributes.

For non-Buddhists, I was told that the Koran and the Bible might also bestow some blessings to the reader simply by looking at it.

DO READ THE OTHER ‘SPECIAL ENERGIZING BUDDHIST, TAOIST, AND FENG SHUI RITUALS TO BRING FINANCIAL, CAREER, AND PERSONAL SUCCESS’ ARTICLES: (1) Tap the Power of the Sun’s Yang Energy; (2) Tap the Power of the Buddhist and/or Taoist Auspicious and Sacred Symbols by Displaying Them at Your Home or Workplace; (3) Upsurge the Yang Energy of Your Front Door and Living Room; (4) Wear Some Mantra or Seed Syllable as Jewelry; (5) Put Sacred Objects/Images in Your Home and Workplace; (6) Read Sacred Texts to Imbibe Different Kinds of Blessing; (7) Make Peace with the Spiritual Realms Through Incense, Holy Sound, and Mantras.

Paying Homage to Kuan Yin, the Buddha of Compassion!

Published Pebrero 21, 2012 by jptan2012

I intentionally wrote 3 different posts about Kuan Yin (also spelled as Guan Yin, Quan Yin, Kwan Yin, Gwan Yin), because there is simply a lot to write about Kuan Yin. The first post is KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEARS THE CRIES OF THE WORLD. The second post is UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN.

Kuan Yin is also called ‘The Goddess of Mercy’, ‘Buddha of Compassion’, ‘Bodhisattva of Compassion’, ‘Guan Shi Yin’, ‘Kannon’ in Japan, ‘Avalokitesvara’ also spelled as Avalokiteshvara, ‘Chenrezig’, ‘Guanzizai’ are just some of the way she’s addressed.

However, allow me to share a few ways of paying homage to Kuan Yin. One way of paying homage to Kuan Yin is by inviting her into our house. It’s important that her image is placed on a ‘good’ spot. If possible, place her near the entrance, but do not put her in the kitchen, dining room, restroom and bedroom of married couples. Inviting her image to our home or office creates a lot of merit, and by simply having her image around us makes us closer to Kuan Yin.

You can also offer incense, clean water, flowers, fruits; lighted candles is also a very auspicious way of paying homage to the Bodhisattva of Compassion.

Wearing her image as pendant either in gold or a semi-precious stone like jade  is also a way of paying homage to Kuan Yin. It also gives us a visual representation of our ‘relationship’ to Kuan Yin that it helps us to become closer to the Bodhisattva.

My own Kuan Yin pendant has her sutra and other prayers written on the back. Any image of Kuan Yin will do, however, if you can get something that’s similar to my pendant the better. The bigger one has the shortest sutra in the world, the Heart Sutra that is largely associated with Kuan Yin. The smaller pendant has the White Robed Kuan Yin prayer. In Buddhism wearing or carrying sutras and prayers brings the same effect as if you saying it yourself. It has an effect of you continuously saying the sutra or prayer. You can also get a miniature Heart Sutra and carry it with your body, aside from being an homage to the Kuan Yin this serves as an instrument of your continues blessing from Kuan Yin.

Still another way of paying homage to Kuan Yin is by ‘sharing’ her with other people. Talking to people about Kuan Yin is one way of homage to Kuan Yin. You can do this orally or you can do this in written format. In the age of internet, this had become easier, because simply writing about her on your blog, or Facebook or Twitter account a lot of people get to know more about her. You can also buy several copies of the Heart Sutra or several of her images and share it to your friends and/or even strangers; it’s another way of paying homage to her.

There are many ways of paying homage to Kuan Yin, and you can come up with your own unique way of paying homage to her. However, I believe one best way of paying homage to Kuan Yin other than inviting her to our home or office and wearing her image as pendant is by chanting her mantra.

Reciting or chanting the mantra of Kuan Yin or Avalokitesvara is not only an act of homage, but it gives us a lot of merit from Kuan Yin. If you’re facing a big problem, recite her mantra and she will immediately come to your aid.

The Mantra of the Buddha of Compassion, Kuan Yin is OM MANI PADME HUM.

If you want to know more about Kuan Yin do read my first two posts about her. The first one is KUAN YIN: THE ONE WHO HEARS THE CRIES OF THE WORLD and the second one is UNDERSTANDING MERCY AND COMPASSION: THE TRANSFORMATION OF AVALOKITESVARA TO KUAN YIN.

Feng Shui-Chinese Zodiac Forecast for 2012 Year of the Water Dragon (Part 2)

Published Disyembre 30, 2011 by jptan2012

In my previous post, I shared with you my 2012 Year of the Water Dragon Feng Shui forecast for the Chinese Zodiacs – Rat, Ox, Tiger, and Rabbit. These are base on my own calculations and interpretations of the Bazi or Four Pillars and the Flying Star. My family is an avid Feng Shui believers and we realized that it’ll be cheaper for us if one of us just enroll and study Feng Shui rather than pay for the expensive fee of a Feng Shui consultant.

Allow me to clarify that these readings are generic for each of the animal sign. For me to be able to give you a better reading, I need to have your birth-year, month, day, and time.

THE DRAGON…

might have the misconception that since this is a year of the dragon, he or she might have a very good year. However, this is actually wrong and a very common misconception at that. The truth of the matter is that if your Chinese Zodiac is similar to the sign of the year, it means its going to be a challenging year ahead for that particular sign. One reason for this is that because you’re directly within the ‘house’ or the section of the Tai Sui God of the year.

This year, will be challenging for the people born under the sign of the Dragon because, as mentioned, you’re directly within the section of the Tai Sui God and you’re also in conflict with the Yellow Killing.

This is a year wherein you should be very careful in taking risk. You’ll find yourself constantly facing hindrances and problems. You should also be very careful in watching out for your health. But do not despair because I always believe that its useless to know about what may happen when you can’t prepare for it and deal with it. Knowing these things will help you to be on your guard and watch out for possible problems.

Feng Shui Protection: Piyao [also spelled as Pi Yao] (Pendant/Bracelet)/Dou Mu Yuan Jun [Goddess of the North Star] Pendant, Five Element Pagoda (Pendant/Key Chain), Jade Wulou, Ksitigarbha Fireball, Five Bat DZI (Pendant/Bracelet), Kalachakra Pendant

Piyao or Pi Yao is a mystical celestial creature which pacifies the Tai Sui God.

Dou Mu Yuan Jun or Goddess of the North Star is a powerful Deity to counter the effects of Tai Suey. She is said to be the creator of all the Tai Suey Gods does has the power to rule or control over them.

It is quite difficult to get a Dou Mu Yuan Jun pendant. However, I was recently able to get one that's made of 14k gold from Master Joseph Chau, the acclaimed Feng Shui expert. He also has the jade version, but I find the jade version too big and its more expensive than the gold one.

There are different versions of the 5-Element Pagoda. However, personally the original version and a small one, I believe, is okay and powerful enough to counter the effects of the 5-Yellow Star.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Kuan Yin Pendant/Tara Pendant/Kuan Kong Pendant, Ruyi, Mantra (Ring/Pendant), Sun Wukong aka Monkey God aka Great Sage Equal to Heaven (Pendant/Image)

Whenever I state here- Mantra Pendant- I refer to any Tibetan mantra which I think is one of the most powerful Buddhism and Feng Shui tools. However, OM MANI PADME HUM (pronounce as HUNG) is one of the most powerful one. It's the mantra of Bodhisattva of Compassion - Kuan Yin or Avalokitesvara or Chenrezig.

I also designed my very own Wealth and Master Protection pendant which is may be advisable for people born under the sign of the Dragon. Sometimes, it seems absurd to be wearing so many pendants, that’s why I thought of designing my own pendant which will address this concern. I initially designed this pendant for myself and for my family. However, when our friends found out about this we started making this for them. Ours is made of 14K yellow gold but we can make a silver one also. Please email me if interested, but I have to warn you that it’s a little pricey but this is something that can be use ‘forever’ you don’t have to change it yearly.

WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT is a pendant I designed so that I don't have to wear a lot of pendants around my neck. At the front is the image of Sun Wukong (aka Monkey God or Great Sage, Equal to Heaven). Sun Wukong is a very powerful wealth and protector deity. There has been a lot of confusion as to whether Sun Wukong is a Taoist(Daoist) Deity or a Buddhist Deity. The truth is Sun Wukong's story is quite uniique. He started as a Taoist deity and in the process became a Buddhist deity, thus, he is worshipped and revered both in Taoism and Buddhism. The pendant is made of 14k gold and weight around 13g. Friends started requesting me to make one for them also and I started having my jeweler make a silver version of the pendant. I'm also currently looking into the possibility of having the images carved into a jade thus making a JADE WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT.

At the back of the WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT are the image of the Three Celestial Guardians (w/ implements) this is to help counter the effects of the 3 Killings and at the bottom is the 5-Element Pagoda to address the 5-Yellow Star and beside it on the right side is the Ksitigarbha Fireball fo counter the argumentative star. At the top is the Chinese character that says-GREAT SAGE, EQUAL TO HEAVEN. If I'm not mistaken this is the only Master Protection pendant that addresses different major concerns. The Pi Yao in the Three Celestial Guardians addresses the possible concerns brought about by the Tai Suey God. Sun Wukong and the Chilin in the 3 Celestial Guardians also addresses wealth and career luck. On top of that Sun Wukong is also a very powerful protector deity.

To know more about Sun Wukong click here.

THE SNAKE…

had a good fortune the past couple of years, but this year its going to be a little bad for them. This is because they’re directly affected by the Five Yellow Killing Star.

Your chi or energy is going to be  very unstable which may cause you to make a lot of wrong judgments or decisions. Financially, you will have to be very cautious. Do not overspend. Also be careful that you get into a legal case, because this may cause long term (years!) problem.

It’ll be wise for you to get yourself a wealth and protector deity like Sun Wukong (aka ‘Monkey God’ aka ‘Great Sage, Equal to Heaven’) and Kuan Kong (also spelled as Guan Gong)

On the love front, you may find yourself continuously arguing with your partner.

Furthermore, you should also be wary of the 3-Killings Star which may bring problem to your health or causes accidents, financial growth, and causes obstacle in your growth path

Feng Shui Protection: 5-Element Pagoda (Pendant or Key Chain), Sun Wukong Pendant/Kuan Kong Pendant, Three Celestial Guardians, Rooster (Pendant/Figurine), Ksitgarbha Fireball (Pendant/Key Chain)

Always look at the face of the Kuan Kong pendant that you're getting for yourself. The 'braver' the face the better.

Admittedly, its difficult to find a '3-Celestial Guardian' Pendant. A key chain will do. However, that's also the reason why I designed my WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT with the 3-Celestial Guardian at the back.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Amethyst Geode tied with a red string beside the bed, Ruyi (Pendant/Key Chain), 5 Bat DZI with Red Tiger’s Eye Beads.

Amethyst Geode with Red String.

5-Bat DZI has the image of five bats. Contrary to western belief that bats are scary and serves as a bad omen, bats actually brings good fortune.

I also designed my very own Wealth and Master Protection pendant which is may be advisable for people born under the sign of the Snake. Sometimes, it seems absurd to be wearing so many pendants, that’s why I thought of designing my own pendant which will address this concern. I initially designed this pendant for myself and for my family. However, when our friends found out about this we started making this for them. Ours is made of 14K yellow gold but we can make a silver one also. Please email me if interested, but I have to warn you that it’s a little pricey but this is something that can be use ‘forever’ you don’t have to change it yearly.

THE HORSE…

will fall flat on their face if they don’t learn to be humble and if they continue to cause ’emotional injury’ with their sharp words. Having said that, this is actually a good year for people born under the year of the Horse. Success may actually come easily but they may easily destroy this good luck by continuously creating bad karma with their malicious manipulative scheming minds.

People born under the sign of the horse also has good mentor luck meaning they might find themselves surrounded by people who can help them succeed. But they should be humble enough to acknowledge this help. Give credit where credit is due.

This year the horse is confronted by the 3-Killings Star, which may cause health problems and accidents, financial problem, and obstacle. You may be asking isn’t this conflicting with the earlier statements. It’s not, this only means that you have the luck but may be negated by the 3-Killings. In turn, the effects of the 3-Killings may be aggravated by the negative karma that a snake commits. So be very careful in not doing anything wrong. The Earth Horse born in the year 1978 has the biggest tendency to be create a negative karma by being boastful, hurtful with their words, and malicious.

Health luck is a little bad. Meaning you can get ill a lot this year.

Feng Shui Protectors: Three Celestial Guardians (Pendant), Ksitigarbha Fire Ball, Jade Wulou, and be nice and good.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Chilin, Sun Wukong (Pendant), Victory Banner (Pendant/Key Chain), Mystic Knot (Pendant/Key Chain)

A Chilin is another mystical celestial creature that helps in delivering career and financial success.

The Victory Banner is one of the 8 Auspicious Objects in Tibetan Buddhism. This is a powerful tool to help us achieve our goals.

I also designed my very own Wealth and Master Protection pendant which is may be advisable for people born under the sign of the Horse. Sometimes, it seems absurd to be wearing so many pendants, that’s why I thought of designing my own pendant which will address this concern. I initially designed this pendant for myself and for my family. However, when our friends found out about this we started making this for them. Ours is made of 14K yellow gold but we can make a silver one also. Please email me if interested, but I have to warn you that it’s a little pricey but this is something that can be use ‘forever’ you don’t have to change it yearly.

THE SHEEP/GOAT…

will have a good fortune this year. You might come across another interpretation that says that people born under the sign of the Sheep or Goat will have ‘conflicting’ year. I was actually surprised with this interpretation and thought I might have made a mistake, so what I did is I cross reference my interpretation and calculation of the stars with some of the best Feng Shui experts in Kong Kong and Singapore. I’m really glad that my interpretation and calculation is similar to these non-commercialized Feng Shui experts.

Anyway, you the Sheep will have good fortune this year of the Water Dragon. Financial luck is very good but be careful to rule with your head rather than with your heart. Don’t abuse your luck by being too bullish.

I believe, the reason why this other Feng Shui expert said that the Sheep will have a ‘conflicting’ year is because you’re flanked by the Three Killings Star and by the ‘Argumentative’ Star. To remedy this you can wear the Three Celestial Guardians and the Ksitigarbha Fireball.

Feng Shui Protector: 3-Celestial Guardians (Pendant/Key Chain), Ksitigarbha Fireball (Pendant/Key Chain).

The Ksitigarbha Fireball is a very powerful tool to prevent arguments. I prefer that this is worn as a pendant. I also decided to put the Ksitigarbha Fireball on my WEALTH AND MASTER PROTECTION PENDANT. There are now many different versions of the fireball, I think this is just a marketing strategy to make people buy new items.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Ruyi (Pendant/Key Chain), Sun Wukong Pendant/Kuan Yin Pendant

I have several Kuan Yin pendants, some are made of jade. But my favorite is the small gold pendant because I can just wear it around my neck day and night, even while I'm taking a bath.

One other reason why this is my favorite is because it has the inscription of the Heart Sutra at the back. It is like wearing mantra. Buddhist believed that the Heart Sutra has the power to grant blessings and protection to those who has them on their body.

THE MONKEY…

has very good earth luck this year. This means you have the tendency to do well in ‘material’ things. However, heaven luck is a little low, which means relationships might be put to a test and that there might be a lot of argument. This year, its important for you to keep your cool and always think twice or thrice before you say something. Remember DON’T BE GREEDY.

Feng Shui Protectors: Ksitigarbha Fireball, Bodhi Tree or Leaf DZI (Pendant/Bracelet)/Lotus DZI (Pendant/Bracelet)

Bodhi DZI should be worn as a necklace and/or as a bracelet. If worn as bracelet strung it with an amethyst or jade beads.

The Lotus DZI can be worn as necklace and/or as a bracelet. If using it as a bracelet string it with red tiger's eye or rutilated quartz.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Kuan Yin Pendant, Om Ah Hum Pendant, Victory Banner Pendant/Key Chain

This particular OM AH HUM pendant was designed by Lillian Too and is sold on her Feng Shui Mall site.

THE ROOSTER…

maybe the luckiest sign this year! Financial luck is extremely stable while Career luck is also ‘shining’.

Love life is also extremely ‘abundant’, but this also may also have the potential to open doors to a 3rd party.

Health luck is also great, as long as you don’t totally abuse your body.

Feng Shui Protector: Double Happiness Pendant/Rooster (preferably) with Fan

Double Happiness

The rooster has the power to peck away the unwanted third party. The Fan has the power to change bad energies into good one. This particular pendant is available in WOFS.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Maitreya [Happy Fat Buddha] Pendant/Kuan Yin Pendant/Kuan Kong Pendant

Maiteya Buddha or the Happy Fat Buddha is a powerful diety to help neutralize highly negative scenarios. I always wear this particular pendant if I'm going to run into a 'heated' meeting.

THE DOG…

will have a challenging year ahead of them, this is because the Dog is in direct conflict with the Dragon, which means they’re also in direct ‘confrontational’ position with the Tai Sui (Tai Suey) God of the year.

This is not a good year for you to change career or put up a new business. There is also a possibility of a great financial loss.

A person born under the sign of the Dog will have to be careful about their health, also they should be careful not to get into depression.

Feng Shui Protectors: Piyao (Pendant/Bracelet)/Dou Mu Yuan Jun [Goddess of the North Star] Pendant, Ksitigarbha Fireball, Sun Wukong [aka Monkey God] Pendant, Ammonite Pendant, Kalachakra Pendant/Mantra Pendant, Jade Wulou

An Ammonite Fossilized Shell is a very powerful tool to negate negative energies. It also helps us achieve our goal and bring us financial and career success. However, ammonites are very expensive because this fossil actually preserved the shells formed by prehistoric cephalopods, which are extinct distant relatives of squids. I have two ammonites. I got one that's really affordable and I thought I got a good discount, it turn out that its a fake ammonite. I then looked for a real ammonite and eventually found one but it did cost quite a small fortune. But I'm happy with it because fake ammonites are basically useless.

The Kalachakra Pendant is one of the most powerful Buddhism tools to counter negative energies. Kalachakra doesn't have a direct translation in any other language but it loosely means 'the one with 10 powers'. It is also a very powerful protection pendant. You'll normally see Buddhist monk wear this somewhere around their body. I personally have 3 different Kalachakra pendants. One is made of crystal quartz engraved with a the Kalachakra, another one is made of stainless steel but enclose on it are colored Kalachakra sand and was personally blessed by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. The third Kalachakra pendant is a white gold Kalachakra with Kalachakra Mandala Sand from one of the Kalachakra initiation conducted by the Dalai Lama, this third piece is truly a collector's item because there are only 1,000 pieces made.

Feng Shui Enhancers: Sun Wukong Pendant, Amethyst (Pendant/Bracelet) with 5-Bat DZI

I also designed my very own Wealth and Master Protection pendant which is may be advisable for people born under the sign of the Dog. Sometimes, it seems absurd to be wearing so many pendants, that’s why I thought of designing my own pendant which will address this concern. I initially designed this pendant for myself and for my family. However, when our friends found out about this we started making this for them. Ours is made of 14K yellow gold but we can make a silver one also. Please email me if interested, but I have to warn you that it’s a little pricey but this is something that can be use ‘forever’ you don’t have to change it yearly.

THE BOAR/PIG…

will have a stable financial and career luck this year. This is the time of the year for people born under the sign of the Boar to take risks. It’s a good time for you to invest on good karma because this may be multiplied.

Feng Shui Protectors:

Feng Shui Enhancers: Mystic Knot (Pendant/Key Chain), Sun Wukong [aka Monky God] Pendant

The Mystic Knot has the power to enhance the 'good' luck of a person.

We’ve now discussed the Feng Shui forecast for the 12 Chinese Zodiacs, namely – RAT, OX, TIGER, RABBIT, DRAGON, SNAKE, HORSE, SHEEP/GOAT, MONKEY, ROOSTER, DOG, PIG/BOAR. The first four signs in in my previous post – FENG SHUI-CHINESE ZODIAC FORECAST FOR 2012 YEAR OF THE WATER DRAGON.
