This is going to be a quick short post. The Philippines, especially the National Capital Region and nearby provinces has been besieged by very strong incessant rains since last night. Several dams has overflowed and has started to released some water. Several major streets of Metro Manila has been flooded, some the whole village are under water, like Talayan Village in, Quezon City. This is a weird occurrence because we don’t have storm signal nor there is typhoon within our the Philippine’s area of responsibility. The Philippines would need prayers. More than half of my readers are from abroad, and I would like to ask you to pray for the Philippines, especially the NCR. It doesn’t matter whether you’re Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, whatever you’re religion is do pray for the Philippines, especially for the families who has been displaced because of the heavy rains and flood.
For Buddhist or people who believes in the power of mantra, please chant the mantras of the White Umbrella Goddess (full mantra) – TADYATHA OM ANALE ANALE KHASAME KHASAME BHAYRE BHAYRE SAUMA SAUME SARVA BUDDHA ADISHTANA ADISHTITE SOHA OM SARVA TATHAGATHA USHINISHA SITATAPUTRA HUM PHAT HUM MAMA HUM NI SOHA; the mantra of the Medicine Buddha – TADYATHA OM BEHKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE MAHA BHEKANDZYE BHEKANDZYE RADZA SAMUGATE SOHA; and the mantra of the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Kuan Yin – OM MANI PADME HUM.
I have previously written about the said Buddha and Bodhisattvas whose mantras are mentioned above. If you wish to know more about them please do read my previous posts about them.
